In an interview for the cover of NME, Rihanna confirms that her long awaited eighth album is not yet finished and that executive producer Kanye West is to blame for the hold up.
Horrible designer Mr. West has been too occupied holding New York fashion shows for rags he calls clothes, and Rihanna's album just isn't of high priority to him. I bet he ensures his album sees a release before hers. I'd put serious money on it in fact. Hopefully this will be the last time Rihanna makes Kanye an executive producer of anything. Her album campaigns are usually so well planned and watertight but this? This has to be the most disorganized era to have ever occurred in her career.
On the album delay, Rihanna reveals:
“It’s not done! To me it’s never done until it’s done. Until the final moment. Now we [Kanye West] just have to wait to get back in the studio together. His schedule and mine are totally opposite right now, but I think this month we’ll be back in the studio. I have so many songs I love – and they’re so different – that it’s hard to actually put them all on the same album.”Adding:
“No matter what I post online, within three comments there’s somebody saying, ‘Where is ‘R8’?’ I could post anything. Nothing else matters. They don’t care about anything but that. But it makes me excited, because I can’t wait to give them something great.”Thoughts?
