Rihanna must not sleep. Rihanna and her producer just revealed that she is recording her album in different hotels across Europe whenever she gets some down time from performing.
When Rihanna tours, she brings a portable studio with her. She's currently on her LOUD tour in Europe and when she's not onstage, she's in the hotel working on new music for her upcoming album, "Talk That Talk," due out November 21. So does she sleep ever?
"Rihanna likes to work late hours, so she would come into the studio at 9pm and work until 6am." says her producer Kuk Harrell.
So no, Rihanna does not sleep. And this is why I'll never be a pop star. Dammit, I was looking forward to crossing that off on my bucket list.
"In addition to touring, we are recording Rihanna's new album. We have a portable studio that we set up at the different hotels that we are staying at. We set up shop anywhere in the hotel...Before we went on the European leg of Rihanna's Loud tour, we started recording the album in Los Angeles."
So like a Port-A-Potty, but Port-A-Studio?
Rihanna recently debuted the cover artwork for her new album, which features two covers: the regular album features Rihanna in a leopard print tank, grabbing her hair and scowling and licking her lip. The deluxe edition album cover features Rihanna in a black and white image blowing smoke rings. Sheesh, Rihanna really took that whole "Good Girl Gone Bad" image to heart.
In other news, Rihanna proves she's better than Madonna. RiRi broke Madge's record for a solo artist achieving 20 Top 10 singles in the shortest amount of time. She was able to break that record with the release of her "Talk That Talk" lead single, "We Found Love," the Calvin Harris produces dance track.
This is the same song that got her in trouble in a cornfield in Northern Ireland. When Rihanna filmed the video for "We Found Love," the farmer who owned the field said he found her "state of undress" to be completely "inappropriate."
Whatever, Rihanna was just voted "Sexiest Woman Alive" by Esquire magazine. Are you really gonna tell the sexiest woman that she can't be sexy in your cornfield?
When Rihanna was bestowed the honor of Sexiest Woman she says that she thinks she isn't sexy enough for the honor, "At the end of a concert, I don't feel I've been this sexy thing. Really, I don't even think about it. Unless it's for a song that really calls for it, like 'Skin' or 'S&M' or when I cover (Prince's) Darling Nikki."
