I love both singers but I think they are in the press too much.
I know it's not always their fault but at least with madonna she will go away for a year then come back again.

Yes you picked the 2 perfect music artists!

Beyoncé wiggled so much that in the end I was fed up of seeing her music videos and her songs hating on men when she has a rich husband and recent child!

Rihanna was bad even before she was with Chris Brown. Song release after release to the point were like 5 of her songs were in the top 10 at once. The fact she is with Brown means she is always in the papers for the wrong reasons!

Madonna has had her fair share of overexposure and her having that short a break doesn't really count in my opinion.

RIhanna definately is. I don't think any singer is as overexposed as she is. She has released a stream of singles pretty much none stop every 3 months since 2007. It wouldn't be so bad if the quality was consistent, but she hasn't released a truly decent track since Only Girl imo.

At least the likes of Beyonce and Madonna disappear between albums, and take long enough off to produce something of decent quality.

Overexposed. Yes, definitely but they know they sell far more product by exposing their flesh at every opportunity which is why they do it.

Tramps.

Agreed. But Stay? That and The Final Goodbye are her best two ballads point blank for me. And Only Girl was trash vs Whats My Name

I think that's because Madonna & Beyonce have a lot of input into their music, meaning they write as well as produce and perform. Rihanna(from what I am aware of) is just a recording artist. I don't think she has ever fully written any of her singles she has released. So I'm thinking she has time to have release after release.

Definately not Beyonce, she does her thing and goes away and then gives the public a chance to miss her. Rihanna on the other hand is probably getting to the point of being over exposed. She releases so much music so often and is constantly churning it out and the thing that saves her from a backlash is that the music is generally pretty good and she's unique and fairly interesting

Yo Navy, it's me Rihanna. My new album is out today. The next single is out tomorrow, then I have to cancel it and release a remix of a different song, then film a video for a song that isn't on the album.

What makes Rihanna so exposed is her ridiculous career structure of throwing out her music.

As long as there are drooling feature writers and soft headed kids willing to buy into the sh*te then she'll keep on with the over exposure.

Rihanna definitely is. She's always releasing music and her songs are on the music channels a lot. I think she needs to take a break this year. Maybe she could release a Singles Collection before taking a break.

Although Beyonce does take breaks, I think she's running the risk of being completely overexposed at the moment.

Since the beginning of the year it seems to have been none stop exposure. Super Bowl, documentary, countless articles appearing about her, adverts for tour etc... yet she doesn't seem to be actually releasing any music, unless I've missed it? Have I?

I've never known an artist to do this much promo but not seem to release anything. I know it's a way of selling the brand, and tour tickets... but it may get to the point where people are sick of her before she gets round to releasing her album.

As much as I agree with most of what you just wrote. I doubt people will get sick of her. It's like she's got the majority of the world under a spell at the moment.. like she can't do anything wrong

Despite the (front loaded publicity) Beyonce is not 'that' commercially successful in the UK though - having a rich husband & record label / management company owner hasn't gauranteed success in her case.

She seems to do ever so well and it helps she is part of Destiny's Child as well.

without a doubt they are. The last time I checked there is not a moment where one of their videos was not on the mainstream music channels.

Not that well though '4' has only sold 0.5 M.Her best selling album only sold 1.4 M (I Am... Sasha Fierce, 5 years ago).She's never had a consistent run of hit singles, with alot of flops between them in fact.She hasn't had a top 10 hit in 2 years, as a solo performer.

It's hard to judge how much of a live attraction she is because she hasn't toured much in the UK, although her current tour 'seems' to have sold well.Ticket agencies will have bought a fair proportion of those though & there are still alot available at their ripe-off prices (at the moment).

I like her music but I am not obsessed like some people.

I just like her hear less of her and not see her jiggling and wiggling all the time.

I think rihanna should have released a greatest hits by now.
beyonce I think is scared if she even takes six months off she'll be overtaken by younger artists which will happen.
I still think she hasn't released her best work as a solo artist.
I think she has more to give but is too overexposed.
