Product Description

This DVD tells the story of Rihanna and her triumphant journey from poverty and obscurity to becoming a worldwide pop sensation. Chronicling Rihannas meteoric rise to success following a chance meeting with a music producer who was so impressed with her that he immediately set a meeting with hip hop legend Jay Z, who signed Rihanna to a record contract hours after their first meeting. This is the definitive film for Rihanna s fans, learn how her early career was carefully orchestrated, how she struggled to escape the comparisons to Beyonce and how she took control of her destiny and reshaped her image from innocent, island girl to a confident sexy world class pop icon. In her own words audiences find out her likes and dislikes, her favourite entertainers, the stories behind her major hits like Umbrella Love the Way You Lie, and much more. We will also hear from major music industry insiders such as Jay Z, producer Alex Da Kid, Ciara, Faith Evans, producer Ester Dean and Kings of Leon to name a few as they all talk about Rihanna s brilliant career and the effect she s had on the music industry. The DVD also chronicles the love hate relationship with singer Chris Brown, on the one hand how his influence led to a positive change in her music whilst on the other how the abuse she experienced with him changed her forever. This is an incredible look at the life and times of one of today s most influential and credible artist s. Rihanna is one of the best selling Artists of all time and this programme tells her fascinating story. This is an absolute must for any Rihanna fan!

2.0 out of 5 stars "Rihanna - The Story of Rihanna" DVD 26 Dec 2012
First thing to note with this DVD is that it is in no way authorised or done with the permission of the Rihanna Estate. This is important because it means there is minimal footage or interviews with Rihanna herself. None of her music is on the DVD, no live footage, barely any interviews.

It's VERY cheaply made, using stock footage and playing the same few interview snippets from Rihanna to pad out her story. The facts themselves of her story aren't even very accurate - at one point a friend of Rihanna's from her childhood is mistaken to be her sister, and they also talk about Chris Brown appearing on a remix of the song "Umbrella" which again, never happened.

There's a few saving graces in here, some quite interesting interviews with music producers who have worked with Rihanna like Rodney Jerkins and The Dream, but the majority of the people on the documentary are music critics and showbusiness executives who have very little insight into Rihanna other than statistics and hearsay.

I wouldn't recommend the DVD to be honest. It's not well put together, has zero imput from Rihanna, and the price itself is way too high to justify it.
Avoid it and look up interviews with the girl herself on Youtube, that way you don't have to waste any money.
