Rihanna’s fans, better known as the Rihanna Navy, are vicious. They go after anyone that they feel disrespects their pop princess leader.
But yesterday, the Navy was under attack – by Rihanna herself.
Rihanna released her last album, Anti, nearly 3 years ago. And her fans have been constantly asking Rihanna – and we mean constantly – when she plans on releasing new music.
Yesterday Rihanna finally had enough. And so she pulled up on her fans on Twitter, and confronted them about badgering her for new music.
Rihanna was recently in New York City for fashion week and caused a paparazzi frenzy when she showed up to her new Fenty pop-up shop at Bergdorf Goodman (promptly at 9pm), in a bright orange ensemble, which literally stopped traffic outside the venue. She wore a classic knit turtleneck dress with a matching sporty parka coat worn overtop, all pieces from her just-dropped Fenty collection.
Rihanna, real name Robyn Fenty, is a Barbadian singer, songwriter, and businesswoman, who has been recognized for embracing various musical styles and reinventing her image throughout her career.
Rihanna has sold over 250 million records and is considered one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
She has earned 14 number-one singles and 31 top-ten singles in the US, and 30 top-ten entries in the UK. Her accolades include nine Grammy Awards, 13 American Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, and six Guinness World Records. Forbes ranked her among the top ten highest-paid celebrities in 2012 and 2014, and Time named her as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2012 and 2018.
