RIHANNA SPEAKS ON NEW ALBUM
Looks like Little Miss Sunshine, pop princess Rihanna is in the studio recording her forthcoming untitled 4th album. Even though she didn’t give us much information about producers, and writers, Rihanna mentioned that she will be writing 3 tracks of the album herself and that they are quite different from her previous work.
“I’m currently working on record number four and I’m having so much fun. I’m having so many new experiences and meeting so many new people, it’s amazing.”
She also stated that one of the tracks will fit into the punk-rock category and studying for a new and more even hot look. A release date for the album has not yet been announced, but it’s probably that it will came out in early 2009
“I want this album to head in the same direction as Good Girl Gone Bad but with even more edge. The tracks will be less R&B influenced and will have a feel closer to that of ‘Disturbia,’ ‘Shut Up & Drive’ and ‘Breakin’ Dishes’.”
We’ll see, RiRi! I’m just kinda thrown because I thought Fefe Dobson was doing this on Def Jam before Rihanna was…
JANET CANCELS MORE SHOWS
More fans will be disgruntled to hear that pop icon Janet Jackson has postponed three more dates for her Rock Witchu tour due to her illness.
A rep for the singer said that Janet was in Greensboro, NC on Saturday where she had planned to perform until a local doctor advised her not to as it was “evident” that she had not fully recovered. Some say that it was dehydration, while blogs are sold on the rumor that Janet is pregnant.
Saturday’s show in Greensboro, Sunday’s Atlanta date, and the Tuesday concert in Fort Lauderdale, FL have all been postponed. This is in addition to three previously missed shows in Montreal, Boston, and Philadelphia.
It’s a shame that Janet has missed six shows already, especially since the reviews on the concert have been so good. Fans have probably really been bummed that she’s missing these shows. Refunds have been available, but I can only imagine for a true Janet fan the disappointment of the shows having to be postponed.
