RIHANNA UPDATE: SEE YOU NEXT YEAR?

The latest indicators suggest that Roc Nation's Rihanna may be laying the groundwork to push the release of her new album, ANTI, to 2016.

This follows the grenade lobbed by the star's Dad in the U.K. tabloid The Sun, in which he said his daughter was "unhappy" with the record and that her confidence had flagged. 

Sources say she has bowed out of the 12/8 Victoria's Secret TV special on CBS; in addition to the AMAs, what other seasonal commitments might be in jeopardy?

As we mentioned in our earlier story, questions surround the potential Samsung album giveaway, among other issues, and pressure from Adele makes a #1 Q4 chart bow for RiRi unlikely. Might she wait until Grammy time to roll out her new set?
