"That Rihanna-rain just won't let up ... Where them girls talking trash? / Where they at? / Where they at? / Where they at? / Where them bloggers at? / Where they at? / Where they at? / Where they at?"

it's obvious she's reached her bullshit-limit and she's ready to fight back. The chorus may be a little subpar, but at least she's on the right track. This one is worth a listen:
