Rihanna's BFF: "fans won't be disappointed with R9."

Rihanna's best friend Melissa Forde gives us some non news on R9 in a recent interview with HHNM

When probed about the delay, she replied, “Unfortunately, that’s something I can’t really discuss but just know that you guys won’t be disappointed.” 

I hate these kind of statements. It's like a close associate hyping up a project and then when it doesn't match expectations, the artist gets panned. I know she's trying to give Navy some crumbs, but it's not really helping Rihanna's case. It just puts that extra pressure on the artist. She should have said... nothing at all. One thing I will say is that 'ANTi' will be a very hard album to top, in terms of quality. Easily an album that makes her top 5!
