Rose Knows

 
Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian

It's not secret in Hollywood that rapper Kanye West is bisexual. However, he has not publicly admitted to it. To do so in rap would kill his career. West dated bisexual stripper Amber Rose for years. During that time they engaged in all sorts of sexual activity (threesomes) and illegal drug taking. Rose has embarrassing stories on West. Rose knows many of West secrets.

They've had sexual activity with others. What Kanye doesn't want you to know is that the male was more there for him than Amber. Kanye likes men. West also had a secret sexual relationship with a European male designer in Italy that Rose knows about. West also cross dresses behind the scenes. Bruce Jenner, who became transgender, also wants West, who helped guide him into bisexuality, after being emasculated by cheating, domineering wife, Kris Jenner. Hollyweird indeed...

Kim Kardashian Befriends Amber Rose In An Effort To Shut Her Up About Husband Kanye West And His Secrets

 
Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian

This week Kim Kardashian released a photo on Instagram of a snap featuring her and stripper Amber Rose. Kardashian is married to rapper Kanye West, who used to date Rose. West has made disparaging comments about Rose, labeling her dirty, which offended her [Kanye West Slams Amber Rose As Dirty Leading Her To Call His Wife Kim Kardashian The Same (Video)].

Recently, West made inappropriate comments about Rose's son, Sebastian, who was fathered by the rapper she married, Wiz Khalifa. This prompted Rose to reveal West likes to be anally probed with fingers to stimulate his prostate gland (Kanye West Misinterprets Wiz Khalifa's Tweet And Gets Bashed By Ex-Girlfriend Amber Rose Over His Sexual Preferences).

Kim Kardashian is getting close to Amber in a bid to shut her up about West. The tweet Rose posted about West liking anal stimulation got him roasted on social networking by countless people.

West became the butt of many jokes, pardon the pun. Amber has further information about West that could destroy his career and damage the greedy Kardashian/Jenner money train, which is why the Kardashians/Jenners had her show cancelled last year before it even aired (MTV Cancels Amber Rose And Blac Chyna Reality Show Before It Even Airs).

The Internet Continues To Speculate That Khloe Kardashian Is O.J. Simpson's Daughter After Release Of New Photos

 
Khloe Kardashian (left) and Sydney Simpson (right) bear a striking resemblance to each other

On Tuesday, February 2, 2016, the poorly made television miniseries "The People Vs. O.J. Simpson" aired in America and online to mixed reviews. It is a cheesy take on the murder trial of former football player, O.J. Simpson, who was put on trial and acquitted on murdering his ex-wife, Nichole Brown Simpson and her boyfriend Ronald Goldman.

There has been a cloud of scandal surrounding Simpson, who is now in jail on another charge, due to having held a sports memorabilia thief at gunpoint in a hotel room in trying to retrieve items relating to his football career.

 
Kris Jenner is being mocked online over her promiscuity, as seen in this Instagram photo meme. Jenner was married to Robert Kardashian (bottom right) who is pictured with O.J. Simpson (whom she allegedly had sex with). Kris Jenner is pictured with Bruce Jenner (left) whom she was dating at the time. This is where her daughter's get their trampy behavior from.

For years it has been stated Simpson, who was a serial philanderer, had an affair with, Kris Jenner, the deceitful, greedy, promiscuous wife of his  attorney, Robert Kardashian, which many allege led to the birth of Khloe Kardashian. Jenner and her family of tramps are now reality stars on the show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."

Due to the release of the O.J. Simpson movie, which inappropriately and questionably places an enormous amount of emphasis on the Kardashians, paparazzi were sent to take snaps of Simpson's kids. One of the photos revealed just how much O.J.'s daughter, Sydney Simpson, looks like his alleged offspring, Khloe Kardashian. Kris Jenner, also admitted to an affair with a famous man, which many assume is Simpson. It doesn't help that Khloe Kardashian looks nothing like her siblings Kim, Kourtney and Robert Jr.

Exactly Who Nominated Donald Trump For A Nobel Peace Prize And Have They Been Drug Tested

 
Donald Trump

Reports surfaced that a U.S. politician nominated Donald Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize. What a contradiction. Trump is the most divisive candidate in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections. He has insulted and offended Muslims, blacks, Hispanics, Mexico and the disabled. Trump is not a uniter. He is a divider. He does not embody the traits of the award.

 
Donald Trump

So, I would like to know which politician nominated him and have they been drug tested. Was the politician being held at gunpoint when he was making the nomination (it's okay, you can tell me and I will call the police for you LOL). Then again, as some have pointed out online, Hitler and Stalin were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize as well and we all know what they stood for and how that turned out.

Donald Trump Rages About Rival Ted Cruz's Eligibility To Be President

 
Donald Trump and Ted Cruz

Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, launched into one of his now infamous tirades again, but this time regarding the eligibility of rival, Ted Cruz, who was born in Canada. Cruz immigrated to America at age 4. Cruz has an American father and Hispanic mother. While it would be great if there was a Hispanic president of the United States, as it would reflect their massive contribution to the country, there is a problem regarding Cruz's eligibility. 

The U.S. government is conducting itself in a highly irresponsible manner in not settling this matter before Cruz ran for president, solicited and accepted donations (as all candidates have been doing) and garnered a big wave of support encompassing people's time, emotions and energies. Why was this not decided before he ran for president. All naturalized (foreign born) U.S. citizens know, due to the swearing in process in front of a judge when obtaining American citizenship, that you are told you can be anything in America, EXCEPT President of the United States. 

Therefore, it has perplexed many immigrants as to how Cruz is running for president. No person not meeting the constitutional criteria of being born in America or on an international U.S. military base (to an American parent) has been president. The constitution would have to be changed for Cruz. There is currently a legal case on the matter. However, the government was lax in this issue and should have made this constitutional determination at the outset of Cruz's candidacy before the public got their hearts, emotions and time involved.

Donald Trump's Inappropriate, Profane Speech Is Not Befitting A Political Candidate

 
Drudge Report headlines captioning Donald Trump's profanity

Presidential candidate Donald Trump has repeatedly engaged in profane language in public settings, which is setting a bad example, especially for children. Trump repeatedly loses his temper and publicly launches into expletive laden tirades. He needs anger management. Buying into the hype that accompanied the lead up to the Iowa caucuses, Trump said, "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue (New York) and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose votes." However, he was wrong. 

 
Donald Trump

Trump was bested to the top vote in the Iowa caucus by rival Ted Cruz, who is the better candidate of the two. Trump went on a massive rant after the defeat, accusing Cruz of cheating and engaging in dirty tactics that necessitate them to, "Sue his ass off." Cruz simply pointed out Trump is having another "Trumpertantrum" and would "nuke Denmark" if he were president (sad thing is he probably would blow up places in rage).


Donald Trump

Trump needs to be mindful of what he is saying, as it is sending the wrong message and people are listening. His profane speech, also includes leaving a crass, vulgar message for political pundit and television personality, Carson Tucker, which stated "It's true you have better hair than I do. But I get more pu**y than you do." Hardly presidential speech.

Donald Trump Is Shocking, Vulgar and Right

1/28/2016 - And, my dear fellow Republicans, he's all your fault. About 15 years ago, I said something nasty on CNN about Donald Trump’s hair. I can’t now remember the context, assuming there was one. In any case, Trump saw it and left a message the next day. “It’s true you have better hair than I do,” Trump said matter-of-factly. “But I get more pussy than you do.” Click.

Is Cherry Picking Opponents In Boxing Wrong


Some have criticized promoters and boxers for "cherry picking" their opponents to increase the chances of victory. Some dislike it. Most boxers will tell you they will fight anyone, anytime and anywhere. However, is it a good idea in the early stages of one's career (and towards the end of it if one has hit advanced years). Let's face it, some boxers are further in their development than others. The fight will not be well matched and could put you at a great disadvantage.

If I were a promoter I would have qualms about putting a boxer in with someone they are not ready for in the ring. It is not a lack of confidence, just practicality. There are many things you will not learn in the gym, that require the experience of the ring in a live setting. How you react to truly being hit, going the distance, the noise of the crowd.

Newly pro boxers usually look green in the ring for about their first 10 fights. They land fewer punches and make more mistakes than a pugilist with at least 20 fights under their belt. Boxers with more experience turn into sharks smelling blood in the water when a promoter sends in a rival for something they are not ready for. The rival boxer knows and it ends up looking like this:

Therefore, why would you want someone to punch a hole in your boxer or knock him into the next solar system, by signing him up for a fight he wasn't ready for in any measure. What do you do if you sign your fighter up for a fight he wasn't ready for yet, only to see him take the most restful nap of his life in the middle of the ring, until the medical team wakes him up from the knock out.

If you lose too early in your boxing career, it will cause problems with the type of fights you can get, how much you are paid in purse money and your sponsors, which helps to pay your bills as a boxer. It's better to pace it, choosing a natural and steady progression, rather than rush into a confidence battering defeat that could be avoided had you simply waited until your development was at a greater stage.

Amir Khan Lands Canelo Alvarez Fight After Asking For 80% Of The Purse To Take On Kell Brook Destroys The Deal


Amir Khan and Canelo Alvarez

World welterweight champion, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, 25, has agreed to fight challenger, Amir Khan, 29, in a boxing bout scheduled for May 7, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The catch weight is 155 pounds. Canelo is an elite fighter, who is very tricky in the ring (not in a bad way). He has used this cunning to defeat many. Canelo's record stands at 48-1. The only person who has beaten Canelo is Floyd Mayweather and on points.

Canelo is a tough competitor. In light of these facts, boxing professionals and many on social networking have collectively expressed their concern regarding Khan taking such a massive step up from lightweight to welterweight, against a boxer who has fought as a welterweight, light middleweight and middleweight. Khan's record is 34-3, which is good. However, he is sometimes teased online for having a "glass chin" due to notable knockouts. His last few fights have gone in his favor.   


Kell Brook

Many, included Mayweather, have been encouraging Khan to fight fellow Briton, Kell Brook, who is the IBF champion. However, Khan wanted a 80-20 split, despite the fact Brook is the champion. Khan's demand was understandably rejected and destroyed negotiations. Brook stated to Boxing News Online, "It seemed closer than ever. The lawyers were involved this time and it's the most communication we've had. But I don't know what he was playing at, they are forgetting that I'm the champion and he'd be a voluntary challenger. Don't try to price yourself out of the fight by demanding an 80-20 split because that's not going to happen."

Losing to Canelo would be less damaging than losing to Brook. Canelo has reached an elite level of boxing, making his fight the bigger international draw. Brook is less famous, but still successful and known in his own right. Losing to Brook would damage Khan's prospects far more than losing to Canelo, who is further along in his career and development than both Khan and Brook. Canelo has far more fights and wins.

Brook needs to chase big fights of his own and not wait around for Khan to sign the contract to fight him. It would be a great fight and one British fans would appreciate on home soil. However, Khan needs to raise his profile and continue to develop his skill. In all the time Khan has repeatedly refused to fight him Brook continued to progress. Take a page out of Khan's book and go after the big dogs as well. As stated in the April 6, 2015 Judiciary Report article Amir Khan Dodging Boxers Kell Brook And Timothy Bradley, "Brook needs to focus on getting an audience with Mayweather and or Pacquiao and not wait around for Khan. Try to get a fight with the legends.

Donald Trump's Wig Pushed Back In Iowa Caucuses And Hillary Clinton Narrowly Beats Better Candidate Bernie Sanders Who Wants A Recount


Trump pouting like a petulant child after Iowa loss

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump got the shock of his life yesterday as he was soundly beaten by rival Ted Cruz in the Iowa Caucus, via a vote that is considered a bellwether in determining the next president of the United States. On the Democrat side, Hillary Clinton, narrowly beat rival Bernie Sanders, who is the better candidate of the two. In fact, on the Republican side, Ben Carson is the best candidate (and overall). Sanders is the best candidate running on the Democrat side.

 

Bernie Sanders is demanding a recount as the vote with Hillary Clinton is almost a tie

Trump has alienated many people with his hateful comments about Mexicans, Muslims, blacks, Syrian migrants and the disabled. Someone even sprayed a swastika on his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Billionaire Muslim businessmen in other parts of the world are threatening to pull all investments from America if Trump is elected. 
 

Donald Trump exits the stage

Trump has offended the people of Britain as well, stating there are areas of the country that police are afraid to go into due to Muslims, which is untrue. Trump has also offended Scotland. A university has rescinded an honorary award he was given (Trump's grandfather is Scottish). Trump has made so many sexist comments about women that I've lost count. His racist, sexist rhetoric has cost him voters and he needs to humble himself and apologize.  


Ted Cruz celebrating winning the state of Iowa

Trump is very anti-foreigner, making all these offensive statements about immigrants, yet his third wife, Melania is one. If elected, she would be the least American first lady in history. She came to America as an adult and became a citizen 10-years ago. There's nothing wrong with being an immigrant, but Trump is a hypocrite for his mean comments on immigration, when his wife was not born or raised in America and speaks with a heavy accent (there's nothing wrong with her accent). 


Trumps' words come back to haunt him. Social media is mercilessly mocking Trump for losing Iowa after all his insults and braggadocios comments.

There is a pressing issue regarding Cruz. He was not born on U.S. soil. He was born in Canada to an American mother. To be eligible for the post of President of the United States, one must be a "natural born citizen" meaning born on U.S. soil or on an American military base (as in the case of former Republican presidential candidate John McCain). Technically Cruz is ineligible to be president of the United States. Naturalized American citizen Arnold Schwarzenegger wanted to run for president, but could not due to this constitutional rule. A lawsuit is pending regarding this matter.


Jeb Bush spent the most amount in Iowa, $15,000,000 but received one of the lowest percentage of votes (3%). Please see the June 16, 2015 article: Jeb Bush Is Running For President But Has The Bush Family Really Been Good For America And The World.

Side Bar: Never let the internet see you fail (LOL). Presidential candidate, Jeb Bush, brother of former U.S. President, George W. Bush, was the recipient of the most cutting tweet of the night on Twitter.com, when his logo that contained an exclamation point was turned into a flaccid penis (I laughed at this so much my stomach started to hurt LOL):

Madonna's Underage Son Continues To Stay Away From Her Preferring To Happily Remain In London With His Dad And Stepmom


Mad-onna

195-year-old pop singer Madonna continues to fume and public curse at her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie, 48, who left her and married someone else, model Jacqui Ritchie, 33. Ritchie now has three small children with her and live in the English country house Madonna paid for, with money from mass copyright infringement, that he won in the divorce settlement from the marriage of convenience.


Jacqui Ritchie, Guy Ritchie and Rocco Ritchie in London

Ritchie has one child with Madonna, who is now 15-years of age (Rocco Ritchie). Rocco is running away from his madwoman mother like the plague. Madonna has engaged in abusive behavior towards her children (and other people's offspring as well - after all this is the same satanic, violent woman who was sued and settled a lawsuit in New York for $700,000 over choking an innocent 11-year old boy, Keith Sorrentino, twisting the child's arm and slamming him against a brick wall for following her out of a theatre and asking her for an autograph on her day off).


Guy Ritchie and Rocco Ritchie in London

Madonna's oldest child, who is in her late teens, no longer lives with her and is a drug addict and alcoholic, after years of doing drugs and getting drunk with Madonna (she has openly bragged about drinking and doing drugs with her kids which is dangerous). Rocco fled to London to live with his dad to get away from his mean spirited, savage mother, who has insulted and humiliated him online, among other things. There are rumors in the industry that she has been abusive to him behind the scenes as well. 


Madonna's son repeatedly looks happy to be away from her in London

Paparazzi have been following Ritchie, his wife and son Rocco, repeatedly catching them looking happy together. Jacqui Ritchie affectionately calls Rocco "No. 1 son" on her Instagram page. She stated in the September 24, 2015 edition of the popular London Evening Standard newspaper, "Guy Recently asked David (Madonna's adopted son) if he could remember a time before me and he said he couldn't." 


Madonna's son smiling with Guy Ritchie's new wife at her wedding to his dad

During his parents ongoing custody battle, Madonna's son has indicated to the court he wants to stay with his dad, which has infuriated his unbalanced, vengeful mother. It's clear Ritchie prefers Jacqui to Madonna...and embarrassingly, so does Madonna's son.


Guy Ritchie: finally I'm married to a woman who doesn't have the same equipment as me

Madonna is jealous of Ritchie's new wife. Ritchie's wife has been wearing clothing that states "Mrs. Ritchie" which is something Madonna used to do. However, Ritchie's new wife actually looks like a woman in the clothes. She better be careful, as Madonna is a very strange, insanely jealous and crazy person. She likes to invent crazy crap in her mind, imagined offenses and wrongs that never occurred against her, then target and attack innocent people who have done her no harm


Madonna wearing "Mrs. Ritchie" jacket she had made


Jacqui Ritchie wearing "Mrs. Ritchie" bikini her friends gave her as a wedding present. 
 
Previously, Madonna began to target and harass Ritchie's then girlfriend, Tania Strecker, who she became extremely jealous of and resorted to all sorts of madness to get the poor woman out of the picture. Ritchie was with Strecker first, but crazy Madonna had the woman investigated, began contacting people in the industry that know her and made her life a living hell. She even got Robbie Williams to diss Strecker in a song. Madonna also stalked Carmen Elektra, a beautiful woman Dennis Rodman dumped her for and married.  

Side Bar: Guy Ritchie's marriage to manly, muscular, rough Madonna should have counted as gay marriage (LOL).

Side Bar 2: A few short years ago Ritchie purchased a London home for himself and then girlfriend Jacqui while they were dating (the house he got in the divorce settlement from Madonna is in the English countryside, not London). Rumor has it in the industry that the squatters that whoinvaded the property right before Ritchie and Jacqui were to move in, were commissioned by jealous Madonna via the Kabbalah Center cult she heads up, Madonna grew angry that Ritchie had moved on. 

Madonna is after all the woman who paid private investigator Anthony Pellicano to brutally and unlawfully target people via illegal wiretapping, computer hacking, identity theft, breaking an entry into homes and cars and issuing death threats via thugs he bribed. Pellicano is now in prison for these crimes.

Rihanna's Tour In Support Of 'Anti' Album Flopping With Poor Sales Prompting Free Ticket Giveway


Photo caption courtesy of Oh No You Didn't website

Reports indicate tickets sales for Rihanna's upcoming tour in support of her flopped, heavily slammed album "Anti" are flopping as well. The album "Anti" is currently mired in controversy over electronics company Samsung buying 1,000,000 copies for a dollar each and the RIAA certifying the album platinum, which the public is calling fake and cheating.


Billboard slammed Rihanna's Samsung stunt and refused to count the copies towards album sales

Now comes word that Rihanna's planned tour that Samsung paid to have booked in arenas around the world, underwriting the costs in anticipation of good publicity and getting their investment back, is flopping in a big way, prompting Jay Z's Roc Nation to give away free tickets. Samsung is already angry over the negative publicity they are getting on social networking for buying 1,000,000 copies of "Anti." With tour ticket sales in the toilet, they are not going to see return on their investment and are already saddled with bad publicity.


Many people on social networking are mocking Rihanna and Samsung over the sales stunt

Major label artists with Rihanna's type ego, do not like performing to half empty arenas. They are very proud and can't handle it. This is what Rihanna is facing. To save face, Jay Z's company will be giving away loads of tickets in online contests and to radio stations to fill the empty seats.

Rihanna giving away free tickets for her low-selling ANTi Tour

February 2nd, 2016, 01:33 am - Rihanna and TIDAL are staging a giveaway for her ANTi World Tour. In an effort to make people stream the album and inflate ANTI's chart positions, the giveaway requires absolutely no purchase. Fans are encouraged to stream the album to increase their chances at winning...the ANTi tour hasn't been selling either and most of the dates have thousands of tickets still available...

Rihanna's New Album 'Anti' Officially Flops Selling Only 460 Copies


Rihanna

Lewd singer, Rihanna, is being heavily ridiculed online as news was released revealing her new, frequently delayed album "Anti" is only being credited with selling a paltry 460 copies (and that is in streams, which means people only listened to it and did not buy it) while the rest, 1,000,000 were given away for free. Rihanna cut a deal with Samsung who bought 1,000,000 copies of the album "Anti" for $1 each and gave them away to the public for free. 

Embarrassed by the bad publicity and claims her music career is dead and over, Jay Z and Rihanna lied stating "Anti" had sold 400,000 overnight. However, Forbes magazine rubbished the claims as highly unlikely, branding it a lie. The truth came out today that "Anti" is only credited with selling 460 that weren't actually even bought by the public either, as they represent streams on Tidal. This confirms what the Judiciary Report and others have repeatedly stated about Jay Z and company, regarding their unlawful habit of lying about financial figures to fake the look of success.

Billboard and Soundscan are rejecting the 1,000,000 copies it as a dishonest scam that violates the rules. However, the RIAA has certified "Anti" platinum, but are being mercilessly mocked on social networking for doing so, with audiences labeling it cheating. As discussed in the column years ago, Jay Z was caught red-handed running a Soundscan scam, via paying retailers to run each copies sold of his CDs through the register 3-5 times, which greatly inflated his sales.


Jay Z and Rihanna

My sources informed me that Samsung is furious at the bad publicity and plans to slash the tour money even more than what was negotiated, which is nowhere near the $25,000,000 Jay Z and Rihanna floated to the New York Post. They were not promised even half that figure and the money is to book arenas and pay other costs associated with her upcoming tour slated for this summer.

The tour is already in trouble, as she has no new hits to sell it. Rihanna's last four singles have flopped ("Four Five Seconds" "Bit*h Betta Have My Money" "American Oxygen" and "Work"). Ironically, "Four Five Seconds" "Bit*h Betta Have My Money" and "American Oxygen" were originally apart of "Anti" but were dropped as they had flopped. Rihanna's new single "Work" featuring Drake is flopping as well.

The reviews by mainstream outlets are brutal, but deserved. Rihanna stole and slapped together other people's preexisting copyrighted works, such as Just Brittany's song and separately some of my preexisting copyrights. The rip offs by Rihanna sound tragic and dull, as she has deteriorated and devalued the original works. People work hard to put their music together and not for lazy, money grubbing thieves to steal it.

Rihanna’s ‘ANTI’ Only Sold 460 Copies (Yes, You Read That Right)

February 1, 2016 - 4:41 pm - Some crazy things happen when you give your album away for free. As we reported last week, Rihanna’s long-awaited ANTI, which finally dropped (to polarizing reception) last Wednesday (Jan. 27, 2016), has already been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Unfortunately for Rihanna, her achievement is somewhat undermined by the fact that Samsung, a sponsor of her upcoming world tour, purchased those copies — all one million of them — and gave them away for free. Do you know who doesn’t count albums given away for free by phone companies? Literally everyone except for the RIAA, including Billboard.

Billboard reports that ANTI debuts at No. 27 on their Album 200 chart, due in large part to streams of “Work,” the album’s first single, and other album tracks made available on TIDAL between Wednesday and Friday. (It also apparently counts only 460 copies of the album sold before the Friday cut-off. If you need a quick math refresher: No. 27 is pretty far away from No. 1, and 460 copies is far, far from platinum.

Meanwhile, the album’s lead single, “Work” (Feat. Drake), debuts at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100. Does Bad Gal have another No. 1 on her hands? I suppose we’ll see! Of course, we’re having a bit of fun with the fact that ANTI debuted on an a day that was not a Friday and that it wasn’t available to purchase for more than a day after it was released. Things will look much better for Rihanna next week: with a full week of actual sales (and nearly a full week of being perched atop the iTunes Albums Chart), she is likely to score her second No. 1 album after all. Still. 460 copies. Damn.
 
 
Tidal Claims That Rihanna's Album Has Already Sold 400,000 Copies 
 
an 29, 2016 @ 12:27 PM 9,224 views -  Rihanna’s eighth full length album might only be just over a day old, but according to at least one source, ANTI is selling incredibly well.

Tidal, the streaming service that exclusively has the record available for download for its first week, claims that the album has already shifted over 1.4 million copies. The company confirms that one million of those were paid for and given away to fans by Samsung, so that leaves 400,000 copies that have been sold to expectant fans.

But, is that really true? That 400,000 figure should be taken with a grain of salt. If the numbers are correct, it means that ANTI is already the biggest success of the singer’s storied career, and that’s a bit tough to believe.

To put that 400,000 figure into perspective, it’s worth noting that Rihanna’s largest debut sales week to date was with her last album, Unapologetic. That record became her first to start at number one (and her only number one yet), and it sold just under 250,000 copies in its first week. That campaign was going strong at the time of the album’s release thanks to the massively-popular lead single “Diamonds”, which was another number one hit for her.

So, without a single (lead cut “Work” was released less than a day before the album appeared online) and little to no warning, is it really possible that the record is approaching half a million in sales in just two days? If so, that puts ANTI on track to have a massive first week, dwarfed only in recent memory by Adele or Taylor Swift.

Interestingly, while the RIAA does count those one million copies as sales, neither Billboard nor Nielsen (which provides Billboard with data every week) will recognize them. After Lady Gaga shifted more than one million copies of her second full length record Born This Way thanks to Amazon offering it for just 99 cents a few years back, the rules have changed as to what counts and what doesn’t count when it comes to charting. A full length needs to be sold for at least a certain price ($3.49) within the first month it comes out in order to be included in the weekly ranking. The price that Samsung paid for those one million albums that it gave away can’t be deciphered, so they won’t be included in her official first week tally.

Both Tidal and Rihanna would benefit from these huge numbers—numbers that are only expected to grow. The rollout of ANTI didn’t go as planned for the streaming service, so it could use some good press. The story is so great it’s almost unbelievable…and that’s the problem. This isn’t to say that the figures are incorrect, but do keep in mind where they are coming from.
