So on Sunday I was watching the NBA All-Star Game, and the halftime entertainment was provided by Barbadian R&B star Rihanna, prompting this tweet from me:
It was at that moment I decided to make Rihanna this week's Desktop Girl of the Week.
Personally, I've always been a fan of her music, though it's never been at the top of my rotation. Still, her latest album has become more and more a staple of mine. It's definitely better than her "Rated R" misstep, which, while not bad, wasn't really her style, and wasn't fun to listen to.
I remember the first time I heard "S.O.S.", I kind of fell in love with it more than I should have -- and that's coming from someone who listens to Britney Spears obsessively -- and I've picked up every one of her albums since. I still haven't seen her in concert live, but I hope to change that at some point in the near future, possibly this summer.
