The second half of 2012 belongs to Rihanna. Sure, Taylor Swift slayed with Red, and One Direction have been riding a steady stream of momentum ever since releasing “Live While We’re Young.” But nobody has dominated the current pop music discussion like RiRi. So the Bajan has earned her spot closing out the year on the December 2012 issue of Billboard. Like her GQ cover, there’s a dearth of fabric in play, but there are plenty of career stats listed (six Grammys, 11 Number 1′s, etc.). We can only wonder how high those numbers are going to jump in the months following Unapologetic‘s November 19 release.
