Kanye Says Rihanna Is The Best Thing To Ever Happen To Beyonce+Suge Knight Sues 'Ye

Bring out those perfectly manicured claws.  Kanye West talked to media outlets yesterday about his upcoming 808s and Heartbreak album.  And when he was asked the motivation behind "Love Lockdown", he said "This is a wakeup call … people in music get comfortable … Rappers get comfortable." Then he said that's exactly what happened to Beyonce. When Rihanna hit the scene B had to step her game up:
Rihanna was the best thing to happen to Beyonce’.

Kanye said that B did this with her new video "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)." He raved about the vid saying he never would have come up with that concept himself. Now we all know Mr. West rarely means any harm by the things he says--he just likes to speak his mind. But damn if this one isn't going to cause a catty broken nail or two. I wonder if any of this stems from Ye and Rih Rih's alleged recent and very public make out session. *pops popcorn and waits on the show* Speaking of 'Ye, broke ass Suge Knight is suing Kanye 3 years AFTER Suge himself was shot at one of Kanye's pre-VMA parties in Miami. Suge says his $135k diamond stud earring went M.I.A. that night and now he's suing "for damages for the loss of use and enjoyment of the earring." He even had to ask special permission from the court to be able to keep the money if he actually wins the suit. Why? Because Suge has already filed for Bankruptcy. Womp womp.

No actually I wasn't feeling

No actually I wasn't feeling Umbrella lol. There's only so many times you can play a song before it gets very annoying. The fact is Beyonce' can out sing Rihanna and out perform her. Rihanna's good and she's edgy but the girl can't perform for shit. Beyonce' has said in interviews that she doesn't try and compete with other artist she's her own competition. And she's constantly trying to out do herself. Hence Sasha Fierce. And she's still rocking the blonde weave better then ever =)

The best video, ever? It's

The best video, ever? It's just a rip-off of Tina Tuner...but you know, raunchier. Geez, I can't stand Kanye West. I would LOVE to run him over...then back up and run him over again.

I'd like to correct Kanye's statement.. A combination of Jennifer and Rihanna has pushed Beyonce to step her game up... *still waiting*

that is the dumbest thing so

that is the dumbest thing so far i heard from Kanye. Why are we comparing these 2 talented black female artist. there is room for them both. they both bring something different to the game. Black people always bringing each other down. we should be uplifting each other. people are so ignorant.

[quote comment="285556"]WOW,

[quote comment="285556"]WOW, I really love reading the comments. I wonder if Butterpecan was on the job when she wrote that passionate discourse unearthing the flaws of Rihanna while elevating the greatness of Beyonce. At anyrate, as I have always said we need both performers in order to be truly entertained. It's similar to more of the same or the CHANGE we all so desperately crave. What's even more drepressing is that we only have two choices. Or at least on YBF. It makes me hungry for the 808 albulm, sad to Janet go, and the resolution that Mariah's run has finally come to an end. Not musically, but at least to the public eye. IMO, if the industry was solely based on people singing their pants off I think J-hud would kill them all. However, sometimes I want to dance. Sometimes I want a package deal (madonna style) and sometimes I like a good show. Honestly,so many artists need to retire or we need new producers and songwriters. No one is really innovative or exciting. The closest thing for many is Rihanna because it at least SOUNDS different. No hate, an artist can only do what they can do. But I will say this Hova still kills it. No one rides a beat with confidence like Jay. He killed it Swagger like us. So did Mr. West. So I repsect Ye and his comments, craziness and cockiness. He is talented and he earned it. if it wasn't for him music would be so boring..yawn[/quote] LMFBAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO @ unearthing the flaws of Rihanna!!!!!!!!

I totally agree with Kanye

I totally agree with Kanye even though I always supported DC and B but since Good Girl Gone Bad I saw where Rihrih went (where B was away).. Here in Europe it's definitly Rihanna won against Bee because less talent for sure but wider in the public type (white black young, less young employees CEO...). Everybody love Rihrih and her Rocky look

[quote comment="285251"]No hate intended toward Rihanna at all but what exactly has she done other than have a couple catchy #1 singles and cut her hair into a bob that we were all rocking about 5 years ago. Bey headlines her own soldout worldwide tours(which by the way grossed 50 million)remarkable when no one in her age group can do that right know, sold over 7 million worldwide and this is after 10 years in the game and landed on Forbes at #4(the only female singer in her age group)but also beat the likes of Madonna,Celine dion and others who has been out forever with 80 million made in one year. She still is as successful if not more than she was during the start of her Destiny Child days so what exactly is Rihanna doing that makes Bey give a damn. And don't give me the It Girl thing just ask Ashanti,Mya,and others who were IT girls at the beginning stages of their careers. Rihanna album dropped in the middle of 07 Bey's in 06 so why are people making it as if they dropped around the same time and she competed with Bey and won. Bey not thinking about that girl only yall trust she not gon stop Bey shine or success because if that was the case Kanye wouldn't be randomnly talking about her and neither would we.[/quote] Agreed.....but maybe one day Rihanna will get compared to every upcoming girl. It happens time and time again. Look at MJB and Keyshia Cole....

o gosh take a comment a run

o gosh take a comment a run with it! This was actually a compliment for Beyonce. Although he threw a little salt in it with mentioning Rihanna. Fact is Rihanna and every other female artist want to follow in Beyonce's footsteps. Trust and believe years from now people will be saying "she ain't no Beyonce....bc when Bey was in her prime blah blah blah" Do you really think everyone loved Tina, Patti, Aretha and Dina when they were doing their thing? 20+ years later you can't mention ICON w/o mentioning one of them. Beyonce & Rhianna can coexist......the aforementioned ladies did

I mean beyonce is like diana ross (without the talent)wanting to be the top black star. Why people/The stans say beyonce coming it's over for the rest wow no artist can't touch beyonce. Kanye is a smart dude even if i don't like his cokyness so is 50 cent. They speak the truth. Beyonce doesn't like competion like diana ross and kanye is saying fuck that artist always have to pop off, actors too. The stans are saying oh rihanna is not on beyonce level. What level is beyonce on? Yes she can sing and somewhat dance. Oh we'll she has 10 grammys lmao since when does a grammy mea a thing. diana has none. Jay-z is rubing off on her. And it's not cute Saying it's B season. WOW If beyonce was that chick are as she call herself bitch sideeye. Why be on every mag cover. Talking relationship. changing her look all of a sudden. Cause when janet, whitney were in there prime non of that happen they let the music speak for itself. Oh beyonce you think your the hottest chick in the game hahahahahahahahahahaha Ok stans aka birds aka chicken heads bopping to diva, single ladies hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm When lord beyonce is in her late 30's-40's WHAT SONG IS SHE GONNA BE SINGING. MY POINT All her songs are trash even the ballads are ghetto anthems to the left to the left Me i ike seeng beyonce ciara rihanna brandy monica alicia so on but no the stans are like beyonce has to be the only female artist funny cause not ony does beyonce have to worring about riri, The whitetrash britney is on that level without promoting bri is no talent but damn she must be the shit if she doesn't have to do interviews and videogoes to # 1. Beyonce cd I am Sasha.......Fierce is B'day leftovers with a twist. I say beyonce keep doing you Your 27, Only had one man - Jay-z who i bet took her v, Is a fake goody too shoes and blond, Smiles like a robot, average, Drag queen looking, so on and on i'm seeig the furture and it's saying damn my life was so boring very boring the only thing that ver happen was that fake wannabe supmere drama that my father made so i can start my takeover. Because no one was checking me an my downsouth trash popeyes self[/quote] SORRY, but it is well known that Jay did not cash Beyonce's V-Card! she had a relatioship with Marques Houston, Chico Debarge and some dude named Londell or some mess like that back in teaxs long before J came along. It is allsa well known that she had an abortion at 17 or 18 (i forget) but I agree with you on everything else. she is just one of those dumb ass chicks with no mind of her own!

I will have to agree w/

I will have to agree w/ Yeezy. Rih def does not sing or dance better than Bey (and I think ppl know that but just dont care), but I think when Bey took her break, thats when Rih came up & everybody started taking notice & becoming amazed by her. When u break or start slackin, if ur not careful or u dont step it up, somebody will be there to take ur spot. As for Suge, he just needs to go away. Just STFD & STFU.

Puuuuhhhhhlllleeeeeezzzzzeeee

Puuuuhhhhhlllleeeeeezzzzzeeee!!!!! You cant even compare the two! Beyonce is on a entire different (HIGHER) level than Rihanna! I love Rihanna, but let's keep it REAL-Rihanna DOESN'T have shit on Beyonce and that's the truth! For instance, Rihanna can sing---Beyonce can BLOW! Rihanna's fashion came over night (by her creative stylist), Beyonce was BORN into it! "Rihanna is the best thing that happened to Beyonce"---for real? NOT! There would be no Rihanna without Beyonce! Who is running to the store to buy Rihanna's album?---NO ONE! Who's running to the store to buy Beyonce's album?---EVERYONE! And since Kanye want's to talk that stupid ish, Lil Wayne and T Pain are the best things that happened to him! AND THAT'S REAL!

[quote comment="284392"][quote comment="284225"][quote comment="283024"]This was a sideways comment from Kanye. He prob didn't mean too much shade, but to me it was a ridiculous comparison with quite the timing if you know what I mean. So I guess it's safe to say that "T-PAIN IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO KANYE"...Since technically he has directly jacked someone with far less talent, something I don't believe Beyonce has done. If someone said that to him I know he would be offended in comparison of his talents to T-Pain no matter how man "hits" that person has made. It's pointless to even compare, Beyonce could sing all of Rihanna's songs, and take her performances to levels that Rihanna can't even comprehend. Rihanna could sing NONE of Beyonce's songs. She hasn't even had her own solo tour to even have any type of competition. I think Beyonce was always going to expand her music, and to me it was a NATURAL revolution. I believe that I Am Sasha Fierce is where Beyonce was going with DIL to B'Day. She's just using different and newer sounds, and producers in order to blend what she has always loved and had a passion for, two sides of her music. As for her fashion choices. This has always been a natural progression from the DIL cover art to B'day cover art there was a drastic difference to me. Just look at the two different album covers, Beyonce draped in diamonds, the other Beyonce with a Beehive and her looking in the distance. On B'day you had the Greenlight video where a certain someone jacked the shoes she had, Get Me Bodied Video inspired by Fosse just like the Single Ladies video, etc, what was the norm about those vids? I think these comparisons are getting crazy because to some it's still remarkable how Beyonce is still be able to be at the top, no matter who comes out, no matter what. Beyonce doesn't have to create crazy gimmicks, like let me switch my image to being a Bad rocker girl, when I was just singing reggae, and r and b inspired tunes. Nor did she put her album up against another "heavy weight competitor" just so she could sell. Beyonce has always relied on talent. If you took her production away, you took away the glamorous costumes, the band, backing track, background singers, and dancers she would still have her wonderful and amazing voice. She could walk in any label and be signed off her voice. If you took away Rihanna's beats, writers, dancers, production, haircut, there would be barely a whisper that would come out. In the end Beyonce will always reign supreme, as herself, with her music catalouge being her biggest competition. Next week everything will come full circle, while others are still running laps around that circle trying to see how they can compete. I guess making off the cuff statements is the best way, or releasing videos around that time. Either way Beyonce's talent will keep her in the spotlight, keep her with the most blog hits and mentions, and at the end of the day she can say that it was her true evolution as an artist, with inspiration from Legends, and her love for her own musical growth, that kept her at the top. Damn Beyonce, you really did have some time on your hands today! good for you....................claps and sour faces all around![/quote] WHAT SHE SAID.....................DEAD

The only thing rihanna got

The only thing rihanna got going for her is her STYLE and once dat punk-rock shit goes out of style want wud she be left with...NOTHING because she has no talent to back her up if anything goes wrong in her career. So she is basically on THIN ice. Beyonce has been around for 10 years...not because of her style, music....ITS BECAUSE SHE HAS PURE TALENT!!! AND CAN GO BLOW FOR BLOW WITH SUM OF THE GREATEST SINGERS N performers OF ALL TIME!!!

Beyonce doesn't have to create crazy gimmicks, like let me switch my image to being a Bad rocker girl, when I was just singing reggae, and r and b inspired tunes. Nor did she put her album up against another "heavy weight competitor" just so she could sell. Beyonce has always relied on talent. If you took her production away, you took away the glamorous costumes, the band, backing track, background singers, and dancers she would still have her wonderful and amazing voice. She could walk in any label and be signed off her voice. If you took away Rihanna's beats, writers, dancers, production, haircut, there would be barely a whisper that would come out. In the end Beyonce will always reign supreme, as herself, with her music catalouge being her biggest competition. Next week everything will come full circle, while others are still running laps around that circle trying to see how they can compete. I guess making off the cuff statements is the best way, or releasing videos around that time. Either way Beyonce's talent will keep her in the spotlight, keep her with the most blog hits and mentions, and at the end of the day she can say that it was her true evolution as an artist, with inspiration from Legends, and her love for her own musical growth, that kept her at the top. Damn Beyonce, you really did have some time on your hands today! good for you....................claps and sour faces all around!

BEYONCE CAN SING AND DANCE,

BEYONCE CAN SING AND DANCE, THATS IT.,... SHE BRINGS NOTHING ELSE. SOMETIMES ITS NOT ABOUT BEING THE BEST, ITS ABOUT BEING YOURSELF AND BEING FREE DOING YOU AND THAT SOMETHING BEYONCE DOESNT HAVE. BEYONCE IS INSECURE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, SHE IS GETTING OLD IN A YOUNG INDUSTRY AND HER LOOKS ARE STARTING TO CRACK. RIHANNA IS MARKETABLE AND CAN SALE ACROSS THE WORLD. BEYONCE HAS TO WORK 10X'S HARDER BECAUSE PEOPLE ONLY REALLY LIKE HER LOOKS, SHE HAS NO SUBSTANCE, BEYONCE CANNOT HOLD A CONVERSATION WITHOUT SOUNDING 12 YRS OLD. OKAY BEYONCE IS BEAUTIFUL AND SHE CAN SING AND DANCE...BLAH BLAH BLAH WHAT ELSE IS THERE? RIHANNA CANT SING OR DANCE BUT SHE BRINGS PERSONALITY, INDIVIDUALITY, AND BEAUTY TO WHATEVER SHE DOES. BEYONCE IS A ROBOT WHO IS BEING TOLD WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO DO IT BY HER PEOPLE AND HE HUSBAND. I FOR ONE SECOND WOULD NOT WANT TO BE BEYONCE, SHE HAS TO MUCH PRESSURE ON HER LIFE

[quote comment="283024"]This

[quote comment="283024"]This was a sideways comment from Kanye. He prob didn't mean too much shade, but to me it was a ridiculous comparison with quite the timing if you know what I mean. So I guess it's safe to say that "T-PAIN IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO KANYE"...Since technically he has directly jacked someone with far less talent, something I don't believe Beyonce has done. If someone said that to him I know he would be offended in comparison of his talents to T-Pain no matter how man "hits" that person has made. It's pointless to even compare, Beyonce could sing all of Rihanna's songs, and take her performances to levels that Rihanna can't even comprehend. Rihanna could sing NONE of Beyonce's songs. She hasn't even had her own solo tour to even have any type of competition. I think Beyonce was always going to expand her music, and to me it was a NATURAL revolution. I believe that I Am Sasha Fierce is where Beyonce was going with DIL to B'Day. She's just using different and newer sounds, and producers in order to blend what she has always loved and had a passion for, two sides of her music. As for her fashion choices. This has always been a natural progression from the DIL cover art to B'day cover art there was a drastic difference to me. Just look at the two different album covers, Beyonce draped in diamonds, the other Beyonce with a Beehive and her looking in the distance. On B'day you had the Greenlight video where a certain someone jacked the shoes she had, Get Me Bodied Video inspired by Fosse just like the Single Ladies video, etc, what was the norm about those vids?

Kanye, you ain't never lied!

Kanye, you ain't never lied! That is some real ish he just stated. I'm sorry the fact that RihRih's label was trying to turn her into a lil Beyonce, and she said f*ck that and came up with her own style, made Beyonce seem boring,dull and predictable. Rihanna's music and style always changes, while Beyonce is still rocking that blonde weave, and metallic dress that she's been wearing for years. And everyone is hating on Rihanna's singing, but you can't tell me ya'll weren't feelin Umbrella?

I mean Rihanna has great

I mean Rihanna has great songs and you can't really put her in a box, but I would never buy a ticket to see her in concert. I've seen her performances and they're really lackluster she keeps getting bad reviews for her concerts. She has the image thing on lock but if she would just step up her performance and singing game then she would be a true force to be reckoned with. However I do think she pushed Bee to reinvent her image, that's where the whole sasha thing came from. Beyonce knows she can sing and dance circles around Rhianna but you gotta keep the public's attention regardless of talent. But let's be real here say what you want about Bee, but at the end of the day I would rather see her in concert than Rhianna.

lol dam Ye' watch ya back cuz

lol dam Ye' watch ya back cuz the stans is coming ... i dont think that he meant anything bad by it ... he's right artists get comfortable then they need to step it up ... the fact that rihanna was hitting numba 1 single after single meant that Bey would have to come harder than she did before its not anything bad .. and just cuz the girl dont dance dont mean she dont work hard she's always somewhere doing some kinda performance and Bey shoved B-day down our throats just like Rihanna is with GGGB ... def jam need to slow down on that sug knight .... just go sit in a corner smh

I like Beyonce and Rihanna

I like Beyonce and Rihanna and they are two different singers with different styles,but if the two of them went head to head in a singing contest Beyonce would win hands down!Bey would also win if they had a dancing contest..not taking anything away from Rihanna but I think Beyonce is the better all around performer,and it's a shame how people try to compare them and start some drama between them,they both respect each other and they are both doing their thing and making money and that's really all that matters..they are two hot and successful black female artists.

LMAO at the long ass essays

LMAO at the long ass essays from Bey stans losing they're got damn minds!!! Ya'll really don't need to waste your time going outta your way to put Ri down just to prove Kanye wrong. The truth speaks for itself... he was correct in his assessment. Just look at the way Ri keeps slangin' those number one singles, LOL. She and T.I. keep "If I Were A Boy" wishing "If It Were A Number 1 Single", lol. LOL!! Don't kill me, Bey stans. This ish is hella funny, though.

weaveonce is a nut case...

weaveonce is a nut case... psychotic with all this shasha feirce crap. bitch needs to go sleep. Rihanna is the hit maker now. beyaaawwwncee is old news. what weaveonce did to all those girls who were in destiny's child with her plus many others is catching up to her. Slowly but surely she will go down. she is a pathetic creature who will do anything for attention.

[quote comment="282735"][quote comment="282729"][quote comment="282723"]I agree with West. Beyonce had to step up her game thats why she is throwing her VaJ-J in your face in the video.[/quote] That part makes me hate the video. She is being entirely TOO EXTRA right there. If you consider yourself the best there is no need to show us your twat! I love B, but act like you know who you are.[/quote] Lol @ "twat"! Yeah, that was kinda nasty.[/quote] when i first seen the video my mouth literally dropped, I'm like 'Is she for serious?' didn't like that part either, what made it bad is the fact she had on that bathing suit. Leave that for your man to see!
