Agreed! All though I hate Lil Wayne's voice more. Rihanna has ruined many songs I would have like. Especially both the Eminem songs she's in. She tries to have a strong sounding voice but ultimately fails at achieving it. Makes me wonder how she has gotten so many fans.

Hate this stupid slut with a passion and I also hate her stupid generic music and her weak child-like voice. She's one of the reasons why r&b is so watered down today, she helped to destroy it.
