Def Jam Wants Rihanna To Be The Next Michael Jackson!

Well, not exactly! Just check out the quote from the VP of Def Jam Records, Bu Thiam!

Rihanna is coming along incredibly. I’m trying to push her to where every song will be a hit, from 1 to 12. I’m talking about NO album fillers. Our bar for this album is Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller.’ We got smashes from Stargate, Ester Dean, Mel & Mus and Rock City. We’re definitely going in with Ne-Yo, The-Dream and other writers and producers that have always been a part of her creative process since day one. She’s great to work with and very hands on with every song that’s being written and produced. She has visual concepts for just about every song. It’s already giving me the feel of a timeless album, and right now is her time.” [VIBE]

That is a pretty astonishing mission there, Bu! However, Rihanna probably has a greater chance of clearing the oil spill and pulling the cure for cancer out of her rectum. There is no doubt that the island mega-star can put together a great album, but don’t get ahead of yourself. We all saw that moonwalk!

There are millions of Michael Jackson lovers who get very touchy when someone uses his name (MJ stans will slaughter you and feed you to your grandmother’s cats), especially with the anniversary of his death being days away. Just save yourself the backlash and aim lower—say Rebbie Jackson’s Centipede! She would annihilate that!

Good luck on the album, Rihanna Mae Bullock!

    get real she is no way on the same caliber as Michael Jackson even in the early years, she still couldn’t touch Michael with his off the wall album compared to all three of her albums combine! that’s real talk

  • c.c. says:

    Yes and i am one of those fans that will slaughter her! I was just thinking today in my mind, that since mj’s death, there will never be another MJ nor MJ album unless it comes from him, himself. How can Def Jam even try to put Rihanna up that far… to a male artist at that? Please if anybody is even close to MJ which will never be… it may be Beyonce or maybe newcome Lady Gaga who might i say every song on her album is a banger and each single has become a worldwide sensation. Please Def Jam the closest you will become to Thriller was probably Good Girl Gone Bad. Sorry but this is coming from a huge MJ fan.

  • thats an insult to the king of pop point blank period

    no 1 will ever be he next MJ. Usher & CB were called the next MJ & all they did was copy his dances.

    MJ–like Madonna & Elvis & Beatles– is a cultural phenomenon. In the year 3010 kids will wear jerry curl wigs, short pants, white socks,a glittery glove. They will beg for a red leather jacket.

    What dance movement has Ri sttarted? none.
    What dress movement has she started? none.

    Okay, first off lady Gaga is an awesome singer, and she can ACTUALLY sing live, not like other artists who have been entertainers for the past decade and they can’t hold a note while dancing or even walking on stage. They lose their breath while singing a verse. Michael jackson wanted Lady gaga to be in his This Is It tour, so saying Lady gaga is not becoming huge is an insult to the King of Pop. When MJ knew that a singer/dance or entertainer was gonna get big, he immediatley hired them to work for him or just get to know them, or he helped them get bigger. lady gaga would have been known worldwide if MJ had lived to done the tour.
    and I’m not talking about people like tom Cruise, but she would have been known in EVERy country.
