You know how the saying goes ‘sex sells’, but does it really go too far.  Recently, my roomate and I were watching a commericial and it was so sexual that we would have never imagined that it had anything to do with perfume or jeans.  All we said was, “What’s with that?”  I believe that you are still able to sell those products without all the excess sexual content…its soo weird.

Rihanna Is Back…With a Dark Side

Rihanna didn’t let the assault with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, last Feburary get the best of her. With 5 albums under her belt and 29 songs that topped music charts, Rihanna is back and showing her dark side in her new Album entitled,’ Rated R’.  The first track that played on the album was ‘Welcome to the Mad House,’ which was the same song she began her performance with at the 2009 American Music Awards (AMA’s) recently.  In my opinion, the song was really gloomy and dark as with the entire album. I must repeat: It was really dark.  Although Rihanna has had some dark songs in her previous album, ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ , it was nothing compared to this new one.  I truly hope this is just a phase for her.  Because if it this same gloomy type of music carries on to her next album…hmmm I don’t know if I would still be interested in listening as much.  And are you not wondering?: Whatever happened to the sweet island girl from Barbados?  Take a look at this clip of her back in the day, I know it will bring back memories of the Rihanna the “sweet island girl” we once knew.
