At a launch event for her new perfume in Brooklyn, N.Y. on Monday, pop superstar Rihanna told the press her long-awaited new album is coming along "really, really great." "We have recorded a lot of songs and I can't wait to finish and put it out. That's my next step," the 27-year-old singer reportedly said. That's all well and good, Rih, but here's what I want to know: WHEN will you finish? WHEN will you take that next step? WHEN will your fans (a.k.a. the Navy) finally get to hear R8?? At this point, I'm almost convinced it’s never coming out!
When Rihanna premiered "FourFiveSeconds" with Kanye West and Paul McCartney in January, everybody assumed the release of her next LP was imminent, but, obviously, it wasn’t. Over seven months later, there’s still no sign of the project. What’s going on? I don't mean to sound ungrateful, I guess I just got used to Rihanna putting out a new album almost every year. (I never realized how good we had it!) She spoiled us, and she deserves a break, but I have to say... being kept in the dark like this hurts. Here are 8 GIFs that perfectly describe how the Navy is feeling right now:
