Diamond World Tour – Rihanna

I’m a huge Rihanna but I’m not one of the fans that thinks everything she does is perfect so when I bought my two tickets to both her London shows I didn’t thinknibwould be purchasing two extra tickets to her Birmingham shows.

I woke up early got dressed and headed to Twickenham Stadium to meet my friends and line up to get into the concert so that we could be front row. I got there and there were only 2 people in my Early Access queue so I went there spoke to the people asked them to hold my place and then left to join my friends in the regular queue for them there were 10 people in front of them. At 2pm I got registered to go in early and got my free gift a cute little bum bag that I use for work and some dog tags and a keyring

so after we got these we were escorted into the stadium and my friends and I were on the barrier at the end of the runway and we had to endure 15 minutes of the torturous GTA and after that we had an hour and 15 minutes of the fabulous of David Guetta and he was amazing I wouldn’t pay to see him along in concert but he was good for the hour that he was on and then after 1 hour and 30 minutes David Guetta after he had ended his set Rihanna finally graced the stage and she came out with so much energy and she engaged with the audience throughout the show and managed to spot fans that she knew personally through Instagram or Twitter.

Her first show on the (15th June) was great but because she was late she had missed out some songs even though she put in a lot of effort it seemed like it was missing something. I went home after the show knowing that I was coming back tomorrow and I was able to get a train home.

The next day (16th June) I went to line up early again with some friends and we lined up again got into the venue on the same position however today was so much more ratchet she was so much more energetic than the day before and at the end she looked down towards me and my friends and mouthed to us that she loved us and after that the fireworks went off.

The day after I travelled up to my first Birmingham show (17th June) with a different bunch of friends and I loved this how as much as I loved the 16th however the downside to going to that show was that there was no David Guetta and we had to endure the suffering of GTA for 2 hours much to the crowds displeasure but an upside was she started the set with Mother Mary she was 5 minutes late but that was fine because the trains ran later and we didn’t have to be out the venue until 11pm. Oh yea another downside was that the pyrotechnics were so hot in the small Birmingham arena but that didn’t faze anyone.

I also attended her last show of the UK leg in Birmingham o the the 18th July.

Ashley Creations

20130529-131852.jpg

Ashley C is a 27 year old artist from Virginia, US she started drawing around the age of 5 or 6. She started by drawing comics and watching her mother and brother draw and paint

Her completion on her pictures whether its a sketch, comic or a digital design is dependent on her schedule at med. school but usually it takes her 4 to 7 days for her pencil art bc of details and digital art several hours

She never studied art in school, she is self taught. Her most challenging piece to complete was her Rihanna GQ magazine cover, and her Michael Jackson collage and her Rihanna collage. Her biggest mother and how hard she works with her art/craft

At the moment she doesn’t have her own business yet but is a part of society6 where art work can be sold on shirts..etc. and deviant art. She has also done some freelance work for college friends and doctors at work that have request, no website as of yet

The most famous person to see her work is Rihanna of course and it made her feel like her hard work finally paid off and that someone i admire is moved by my work, indescribable feeling.

Ashley stated that to describe herself in 3 words she would describe herself as humble, loving and selfless . In 5 years she sees herself being an Medical Doctor and in free time a semi-successful artist selling her work

Ashely’s words to up and coming artists would be never to let the skills of others or disapproval of others kill your hunger for making art. It is a gift that u have to uniquely hone to your liking and with time your hard work and practice will one day inspire others to follow in your steps. Make your art, your voice

Rihanna for River Island

Bajan superstar Rihanna is the busiest woman in the industry, she does music, world’s most streamed female artist to this date, and has starred in films her biggest blockbuster, Battleship and now fashion. However now Rihanna has switched roles and for her fashion range is behind the camera rather than in front. She helped produce and direct the photo shoot campaign for her newest collection and even made sure every look was how she imagined it – to the point where she make sure that each model for the photo shoot and runway were style exactly to her liking.

Ad campaign styled and produced my Rihanna herself

Rihanna has always had a strong desire to produce her own line, she has always wanted her line to stem from having ‘the perfect things’ for her and her fans wardrobes. She already had a collection with Armani however her River Island range is much better for her fans, look and price wise, and they seem to be very impressed with it as most of the items have already sold out and she only released the collection last week on 5th March. The 56 piece spring/summer collection has a couple of dresses, some crop tops, tank tops and some jackets. Some items are even limited edition items and there are only 200 pieces available in the world. But what makes Rihanna’s line a lot different from other celeb lines is that she thought long and hard about making sure the line was accessible to all shapes and sizes and she even boasts that she loves the line so much that she wears the collection herself.

In the photo above she is wearing one of the two varsity jackets she designed for her collection. Needless to say the collection is fantastic whatever your size or age.

Radioactive Tour London Day 2

Rita opened the show once again with her newest hit radioactive however this time it was so much better everyone and everything was in sync. It seemed liked day 1 of the tour was a rehearsal and today’s show was the real thing. After the first segment of the show she thanked her fans for coming and told the crowd how she used to live down the road and always dream of seeing her name on the front of the venue. After that she continued to belt out some hits and tracks of her album Ora. For someone who doesn’t mind being compared to Bajan Superstar Rihanna but would love to be seen as her own person, she seemed to encompass some of Rihanna’s Loud Tour set. Other than that rita was able to hold the attention of the crowd vocally however her dancing was very stiff and she wishes to bust a few moves during some songs she might wanna take just a few dance lessons just to loosen her body up a bit. The highlight of the show was the end when Tinie Tempah came out and perform her hit RIP. This sent the crowd wild and ended the show on a almighty high.

Rita Ora Radioactive Tour London Day 1

Rita ora opened the show with her newest hit radioactive she wore a white wedding dress and was encased in a plastic box like a barbie. She belted out her first song with ease she then went into the second and third songs after which she gave a very brief speech. Throughout the show there were various technical issues but Rita continued to sing through them like nothing had happened however by the 3rd technical issues she apologised to her fans and continued on with the show. She had a few minimal costume changes which helped set the atmosphere for each of the themes of the show. All in all rita did well with everything that was thrown at her
