Question about United States

What's the best way to learn pronunciation rules?

Some words are pronunced using a few ways.
For example, "hold me": can be pronounced without d-sound: [hol me].
"International" can be pronounced without t-sound [Inernational]
"Is you ... ?" can be pronounced as [iʤu].

I figured it out myself.
It's not studied in books, tutorials and other learning stuff.
All learning stuff and vocabularies shows only one way of classic, correct pronunciation.
That's not enough for me as I can understand classic pronunciation but fail to understand Rihanna's songs for example.
I don't want to collect this weird rules bit by bit as it's quite tedious and time-consuming.
What advice can you give me about the issue?
