The backlash from her recent collaboration with abusive boyfriend, singer Chris Brown, has Rihanna feeling depressed and lonely. According to British tabloid, the Daily Mail, the once stylish "Umbrella" singer has ditched her brand name clothing for a loose-fitting Religion Union Jack jumper over tattered jeans and a black sun visor.
RiRi was seen leaving her London hotel today, on her way to a studio where she's recording a music video. The normally jovial singer seemed depressed and out of sorts. According to a well-connected source, Rihanna is depressed about the public's reaction to her duet with Brown on her full remix single "Birthday Cake," which dropped on her 24th birthday.
Urban radio programmers have embraced Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" remix by inserting the upbeat single into their daily rotations. But after the initial flood of spins on mainstream radio fell off, the single has failed to chart at all.
"Birthday Cake" failing to chart, and her former mentor Jay Z severing ties with her, except professionally, has Rihanna in a bad space right now. She has no one to blame but herself.
