Pop singer Rihanna seized her own Twitter account from her record label Friday (Aug 27) so that she can get close to those fans of hers…

In related news, Universal recently revealed to media outlets that the pretend singer is due to drop a brand new album before the end of the year.

Too bad we aren’t “cheery” about Def Jam subjecting us to even more torture with an entirely new Rihanna project that will most likely flop even harder than her last album did. And don’t even get us started on that sub-par tour and her equally (if not, more) sub-par promotional performances…

Are you looking forward to a new album from Rihanna?
