Where is Rockstar101?

June 18, 2010

While looking through the Billboard Hot 100 checking to see how Shontelle’s highest rising single to date Impossible is doing this week,

I noticed that I hadn’t seen Rockstar 101 by Rihanna (ft. Slash).

Usually, before the video even comes out, the song is SOMEWHERE in the Hot 100 but with the video out a couple weeks now, I’m shocked that it’s no where to be found. At least I was at first.
Then I gave it some thought… the song which stuck out to me the first time I heard the album when it was released, and in my mind, this would have been a power single, especially the way in which I invisioned the music video. So when I heard this was going to be a single I was all excited thinking oh yay! Another potential number one single, then I saw the video and my jaw dropped.

That video looks like how a ghetto person imagines Rock music to be, as opposed to some artistic representation of being a Rockstar. Then when she suddenly dresses up like an Eastern European dominatrix, I gave up on the video altogether. Sad to say, worst video to date by Rihanna. Colour me disappointed.

Oh by the way- why are they putting her in blackface? Just a question.


Katy Perry Still at Number 1

July 17, 2008

Holding off Rihanna for a second week in a row, Katy Perry’s soon to be classic hit I Kissed A Girl sits comfortably atop the Billboard Hot 100 for 4 straight weeks.

Congratulations to Katy Perry. We at Superlative1 hope you have at least another week at number one. Congrats also go out to Rihanna for going back up to number 2 after falling to number 4. Staying power ladies, you both rock!
