As far as i know, Rihanna is the best selling digital artist of all time, the most streamed female artist of all time (She is still among the top 10 most streamed each week despite no new album for almost 4 years), has 9 UK #1 hits (which the last one being from 2 years ago), 30 UK Top 10s, 48 UK Top 40s, 4 UK #1 albums  with 7 top10s. She became the youngest act to sell out multiples stadiums arround the world back in 2013 and 2016.  She is the most versatile in the game and goes from genre to genre with ridiculous ease, has a song for every demography ( Rock in Rio 2015) . Her last album, Anti, is a critically acclaimed masterpiece mixing instant classics such as Love on the Brain (those who say she is bad live should check her performances of this song)  and bangers like Work. Her coolness is pretty much unmatched by anyone else in the industry and her next album is arguably among the most anticipated release the current year. All goes to show that she is perfectly worthy of an headlining slot despite what most of you claim. 

 

P.S : Lets not act like Swift peers are some kind of underground names just for her to appear bigger than she is, especially in that case. 

 

 

 

Is that you rhirhi?

Hi 

Rihanna can headline whenever she wants. However, If you check her recent activity you will see she’s pretty much given up music to focus on her billion dollar makeup brand.

I think she hasn’t headlined Glastonbury because she is not available. By her own volition.

Is this tongue in cheek or a serious post?  Genuinely can't tell

Quite serious. Bowie was a sponge - absorbing all sorts of stuff - mime, art, British contemporary arts and fashion, Japanese culture, etc. What he produced in the studio was a melange of all those influences. Taylor is the same kind of artist but, unlike Bowie, she made it huge very, very fast. She could have stuck to country but she branched out very quickly. In a few years time she could be back to pure country or knocking something that sounds like Tool. Don't say it'll never happen.

well a lot of Swift fans did recently find out Tool existed thanks to the charts, maybe you're on to something.

Hi, i think she would be great alongside Eminem or Jay-Z. The possibilities are endless.

Rihanna is the only possible way Eminem would ever step foot on the Pyramid, and for that reason, I'm out.

Didn’t Rhianna’s last stadium tour flop considerably? Remember hearing about cancelled dates, downgraded venues and tickets literally being given away.

The Sunderland date was cancelled due to poor sales and to help other dates. 

This is despite the previous tour been the biggest attended concert at the stadium of light

Sunderland gets brought up every time the bad girl is mentioned, but really you all know that Rihanna is comfortably big enough to headline. And then that one guy will pipe up again how he didn't like the Hackney Marshes gig, wdgaf.

Why are we even talking about Rihanna again? Yes she could headline, no she won't headline next year.

Now let's get back to videos of our 2020 headliner

I don't mind Rihanna, however she did cancel like 2 dates in the UK alone due to poor ticket sales... This was her Wembley gig, doesn't look very sold out - and the rest of her dates didn't sell too well either; although she is a really good act, but, Taylor Swift however sold out 2 nights at Wembley. But out of Rihanna and Taylor, I think Taylor would be the better headliner imo

Yeah I've no idea why people are so quick to bring this up. Any act being entrusted to headline stadiums like the ones Rihanna was booked for is comfortably big enough, verging on too big. Many Glastonbury headliners aren't at that level.

If a filter could be put in to stop the same old arguments being rehashed every 5 minutes, Neil would save an absolute fortune on the hosting bill for this site.

Exactly, I don’t think Stormzy would sell out Wembley or any stadiums for that matter, doesn’t make him an unworthy headliner

They won’t ever get her in a non headlining slot so she’l either headline or it won’t ever happen.

Since releasing anti she has become a huge business tycoon and fully dedicates her time to FENTY. She has made it clear to her fans that her heart isn’t in music anymore.

Rihanna isn’t even in contention for Glastonbury any time soon imo.

I mean, this is ignoring the fact she is supposed to be releasing a double album by the end of the year

Not that I think she's particularlly likely, but I dont think its impossible (tho if Taylor is nailed I doubt they'll also book another big female pop act)

Is the general consensus on here that it's unlikely Green Day will play on the Sunday? I'm contemplating getting London tickets for the Friday which I'll go to if I don't get a GF ticket

Yes. The tour announcement made them unlikely enough, and that was before Taylor Swift's tour announcement made her the likely Sunday headliner. You won't be seeing them at the farm.

I mean... is she? There’s been a lot of hype from her fan base that she is but there hasn’t been much evidence.

Remember that this happens a lot with Rihanna, she’s become a bit like TOOL.

Only been 3 years since her last album...

...And she was pretty much releasing an album a year before that

Anti - 2016

Unapologetic - 2012

Talk that Talk - 2011

Loud - 2010

Rated R - 2009

Etc etc etc. You are right but her output slowed down pretty fast after unapologetic. I dunno whether you follow her on twitter but there’s a joke amongst her fans that they are having to beg her to write music.

Comparing her to the peaks of earlier in the decade, there has been a sharp shift in how she markets herself and how much time she spends in the spotlight. What I’m saying is that she’s promised music for a while now but her recent activity doesn’t indicate she’s far in the recording process at all. I would be surprised if the album was out this year.
