    Dear America,
    Melissa Forde and Rihanna are a great concern, for the music and entertainment industry.
    Beyonce Knowles 19 Grammy award winning and 3 times Oscar winner, was having a lot of unprofessional problems with Melissa Forde and rihanna one time Grammy winner. Have a history of racist slur you can go on to her website to have a view.One of the latest problem that Rihanna has is Drake calling her a Devil girl, at his Toronto concert. Melissa Forde contribute to that relationship where Drake was playing around purposely,unprofessional mixing personal life and professional leads to disaster. One of the latest saga is Rihanna using a poor man material guess who was in the background. You don’t need know who was provoking the situation. Now she terrified to leave the house unprofessional.Roc Nation management Mr carter had a very negative history. He’s never completed his degree, which he needed to make a very successful executive decision. Unprofessional was the management of Melissa Forde and Rihanna, SOLANGE!! and Beyonce knowles are a great candidate to take over this role. To help these unprofessional girls to be properly manage, Thank You GOD BLESS!! America!!!
