I hope the Madonna pressure doesn't get to her. People said the same about Britney and look at what happened. It seems the difference here is control. I have a feeling Rihanna has a bit more of control of what she's doing, compared to Britney who was a product of a machine.

Rihanna's dedication to great music video production, along with her ability to remain relevant without having to party with the Hollywood girls and her great live performances on TV should place her in the right spot for future success.

Sidenote: You should put the Vogue video up so everyone can enjoy it. It is so awesome!
