Since Rih Rih is making all this , her fans should demand a piece of that tour revenue after paying $300 for tickets and getting lip syncing and low energy performances.
According to Billboard:
Rihanna ranks at No. 1 on Hot Tours with sales reported from her Diamonds world tour’s European jaunt that spanned nine weeks from late May through the end of July. Ticket sales from the summertime swing through 14 countries totaled more than $68 million from 34 performances. The top grosser among the summer dates was a two-show stand in London on June 15-16 at Twickenham Stadium.
With an attendance of 95,971 for both nights, sales at the 82,000-seat rugby venue topped £5.5 million ($8.6 million US$).
The Diamonds tour, in support of Rihanna’s 2012 album Unapologetic, kicked off on March 8 in Buffalo, N.Y. and played U.S. and Canadian arenas through May 7, closing with a packed at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. With revenue from the European dates added, the tour’s overall gross passed the $100 million mark from more than 1.2 million sold tickets. Following the run through Europe, the Barbadian singer spent September and October on brief jaunts through markets in Asia, Australia/New Zealand and South Africa as well as stops in Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv. She is currently on the road for a final North American trek that wraps on Nov. 15 in .

The men’s eau de toilette will arrive at Barneys New York on Nov. 20 as part of his fashion collaboration with the department store. It will roll out to other stores including Macy’s, Sephora, Nordstrom, and Dillard’s on Black Friday, Nov. 29.

The bottle consists of a white matte flask with the “Gold Jay Z” logo raised and etched in gold, while the gilded cap is inscribed with the words “Power,” “Pride,” “Confidence,” “Strength,” “Success,” and “Courage.”
“We are going to make a big noise. For the 30 days before Christmas, it will be impossible not to know he has a fragrance,” Donald J. Loftus, president of Parlux Ltd., told WWD.
The Roc Nation rapper rejected 3,200 possible names for his signature scent. After finding the perfect one, he declared, “This is the shit; it’s gold,” Loftus revealed.
In addition to Gold Jay Z, Mr. Carter will launch his limited line of designer products at Barneys New York on Nov. 20.

Future and Ciara are officially enaged!
Ciara was celebrating her 28th birthday in New York over the weekend when Future proposed, according to The Associated Press. The Atlanta MC, 29, presented the “Body Party” singer with a 15-carat diamond ring, their publicist, Chris Chambers, said on Sunday night.
“Today Has 2 Be Like One Of The Sweetest Days Of My Life! #TheBestBirthdayEver,” Ciara tweeted on Saturday. “If I’m Dreaming I Don’t Want To Wake Up..Aaaaaahhh!!!”
The couple has been dating for a year. No wedding date has been set.
“I’m happy. I’m with somebody that makes me feel very comfortable,” Ciara previously told Power 99’s Mina SayWhat, while Future gushed about his bride-to-be.
“This is it,” he told Angie Martinez. “This the one. … I said it seven years ago so for it to come around and it happen, it was just meant to be.”
The two collaborated on Ciara’s self-titled album, which was released in July.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian took over Las Vegas on Friday to celebrate Kim’s birthday. Fresh off their engagement, the superstar couple rented a private jet and flew with Kim’s sisters Kourtney and Khloe, Tyga and his baby mama Blac Chyna, and Pussycat Dolls creator Robin Antin. Once they touched down, Kanye orchestrated a photo shoot on top of a Maybach and Rolls-Royce, capturing the moment on Instagram.
Later in the evening, a proud Kim watched from the audience with Tyga and Blac Chyna as her fiancé took the stage during his “Yeezus Tour” at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Following the show, they headed to TAO nightclub to celebrate Kim’s 33rd birthday. Kanye was all smiles as he walked with Kim through the hotel casino and watched as she posed on the red carpet. They held court inside with friends including Naya Rivera, while Tyga performed.
The couple is reportedly planning to wed sooner than later in a “blow out” ceremony. “We honestly haven’t had a moment to talk about it or even breathe, so we haven’t really talked about it, but whatever he wants,” Kim told PEOPLE.
When Kanye proposed to Kim at AT&T Park in San Francisco earlier this week, it came as a complete surprise. “I was shaking so much, shaking the entire time,” she said. “Like, ‘Is this really happening?’ It was like an out-of-body experience.”
