Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Rihanna Talks Visiting The White House, Being an Aunt & Wanting Kids of Her Own

Via Extra:

“Extra’s” Renee Bargh caught up with Rihanna at the MAC AIDS Fund premiere of Andrew Jenk’s new documentary, “It’s Not Over,” where the superstar dished on her new music, her recent trip to the White House, becoming an Aunt and wanting kids of her own one day!

Renee asked the pop princess, “Are you just going to surprise us? Like could I go home and there would be a new song on iTunes?” Rihanna explained, “You never know! I like to be a little spontaneous about things…. My fans, they dedicate so much of their time and and their energy and their lives to supporting the music… You wanna respect that.”

Of her recent trip to The White House, Rihanna said, “I had a blast!” Renee asked, “Being a fan of ‘Scandal,’ did that make it even cooler?” Rihanna shared,”Definitely! And definitely not even being an American. That was the weirdest part, but it was awesome!”

As for how five month old niece Majesty is already taking after her Aunt RiRi, Renee asked, “Are you going to be showering her with MAC products when she gets a bit older?” Rihanna explained, “I already put on some lip gloss… She likes it. You know what she really likes? Selfies! She loves the camera.” Renee asked, “Do you want to have some kids of your own one day?” Rihanna revealed, “One day, I’ve got tons of work to do.”

Rihanna Reveals Her Pick For “World’s Sexiest Woman”

At 26, Rihanna is the most-streamed female artist on Spotify, with more than 10 million albums sold, 13 number one singles, and seven Grammy awards. And that’s just the music. With her frosty new Viva Glam collection for M.A.C, everything Rihanna touches turns platinum. From the fall runways to Twitter feeds worldwide, Rihanna’s influence is impossible to ignore, and her fans now have access to that magnetism via her new collection. In the September issue of ELLE, Julie Schott, ELLE’s Beauty and Fitness Editor, chats with Rihanna about her beauty secrets and favorite products, her picks for Hollywood’s sexiest women and men, and her new Viva Glam collection for M.A.C.

Via Elle:

Rihanna on her picks for “world’s sexiest woman”:
“Penélope Cruz is the shit. If I could wake up and look like her tomorrow, that would be great. Mia Wallace [Uma Thurman’s Pulp Fiction character] is gangsta. She’s epic. I’m going to do that bob again. Those bangs.”

Rihanna on words she lives by:
“‘Avoid obviousness.’ That is a quote by Leonardo DiCaprio. That’s what makes you create something, that’s the excitement, that’s the thrill.”

Rihanna on her favorite product:
“Lipstick. It draws attention away from any flaws. When someone is wearing lipstick, you just assume they’re wearing a full face of makeup. And guys are stupid—they won’t notice when you’re not.”

Rihanna and Drake Are EXCLUSIVELY Dating!


Well it seems as if Rihanna may have finally decided that nice guys don’t need to always finish last. Drake is getting a full time chance with Rihanna and I’m kind of loving it.

Multiple sources are saying that Ri and Drake have gone from casually hooking up to SERIOUS dating. Both stars want to hang out with each other as much as possible, or at least as much as their schedules will allow them to. In other words, when they’ve got a hot minute, they want to be with each other.

Drake has been touring Europe and Ri has been there quite a bit supporting him and has been seen almost every single night with him since she got there.

We all know that Drake has it bad for Rihanna as he once declared his love publicly for the Diamonds singer in his Rolling Stone interview calling her the “ultimate fantasy”.

See peeps, dreams do come true! I just wonder how long this will last this time around. And how long before Ri starts getting back into Breezy’s bed (if and when he gets out of jail, that is).


Rihanna and Eminem Going On Tour Together!


For those who love the way they lie, you can soon check out Rihanna and Eminem on the same stage more than likely singing that very song TOGETHER. Live. Well, at least we would hope it is live and not some pre-recorded nonsense.

Yep, in an exclusive interview with XXL magazine, Eminem confirmed the news of a summer collaboration with The Monster Tour. “There are some shows coming up with Rihanna. It’s a three-city tour: New York, L.A. and Detroit coming in August. The Monster Tour.”

Rihanna shared her excitement via Twitter with the following message response to Em, “‘@Eminem: NYC/DET/LA this August with @Rihanna! #TheMonsterTour – http://xxlne.ws/1e0Ua9I’ OH IM THERE!!!!!.”

Eminem is featured on the most recent cover of XXL alongside Beats cultivators Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. In the issue XXL celebrates Beats Electronics and the launch of Beats Music, a music streaming service centered around the curation of playlists by genre experts (including XXL). You can check out Eminem’s full interview in the magazine, on stands nationally March 11th.

I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see Eminem live. Anyone else?

CELEB SPOTTING: Rihanna Celebrates Birthday in Aspen With Friends

Snow party! Rihanna celebrated her 26th birthday in Aspen, Colorado, hosting a ski trip with her friends. It may have been cold as hell outside, but the ladies looked like they had a blast sliding down the hills and playing outside! Check out some pics below!



Rihanna is the party queen, but it looks like she wanted to keep it low key this year. There’s no better way than to celebrate than with friends. As long as you have your people around, you can always have a good time!

Personally me being an East Coast girl, I am sick to DEATH of winter! If I’m celebrating my birthday, I’m going to be warm and toasty wherever I am! But all power to Ri Ri for braving the cold. Looks like she had a lot of fun bringing in her 26th year!

Shakira and Rihanna Release Duet “Can’t Remember To Forget You”!

Shakira and Rihanna have released their brand new collaboration. Yeah in case you didn’t know they were going to work together, SURPRISE!

The duo teamed up for the new single “Can’t Remember To Forget You” and this track is the FIRST song coming off of Shakira’s upcoming album.

Apparently the ladies have recorded a music video for the song and we’ll get to see it in the coming weeks…that is, IF someone doesn’t leak it before they want it to.

About her collaboration with Rihanna, Shakira told Glamour magazine, “[W]orking with her was utopia. She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher.”

For all you hardcore fans, “Can’t Remember To Forget You” is available for you all to download in the US and UK right now. GO!!!!

Shakira’s new album is expected to be released later this year so you’ll have to wait a hot minute for that.

What do you think of Rihanna and Shakira teaming up together finally?

Rihanna Topless in New MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam 2014 Ad


Rihanna has gone topless once again (and we are totally okay with that) and this time it is for the 2014 MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam campaign.

Rihanna tweeted the following message, “Here’s my new AD Campaign with @MACcosmetics for #VIVAGLAM !!! Coming soon to MACcosmetics.com #staytuned” #VIVAGLAM #MACgirlz”

What do you think of the new ad? I definitely think Ri looks amazing. But doesn’t she always?

Chris Brown Is Headed for Rehab


Because as we all know, it has worked wonders for him and other celebrities in the past.

Fresh on the heels of his latest beatdown, Chris Brown’s team is working overtime to keep him out of the clink for violating the terms of his probation regarding pop singer Rihanna by throwing him into a Malibu rehabilitation center that specializes in helping people with their anger management issues. How long is Brown reportedly staying in the center remains to be seen, but early word is that it is around three months.

Mark Geragos, attorney to the stars (remember that Winona Ryder case? That’s him!), is placing Chris in this treatment center because he is allegedly certain the judge will revoke the probation and then put Brown behind bars. Let’s see if this obvious PR move gets any goodwill thrown Chris’ way.

We prefer the kind of rehab that tends to stick a bit longer.

It’s called prison.

Rihanna Doesn’t “Order Out” For Men While On Tour


Rihanna has been keeping it down low on the dating front (thank gawd), but she sure has been busy with photo shoots. She covers the November 2013 issue of Glamour looking au natural.

I think she looks fab! We don’t have any highlights from the interview yet, but we do have some of Ri’s interview with BBC’s Alan Carr and yes, they are worth sharing. Check them out below.

On Barbados Carnivale:

Barbados carnival is a part of our culture. That’s how we dress – in as little as possible – and we just party. Party for miles on the road. We get a truck and then we get off and on and we… It’s fun. You just party for hours. All day long.

If she gets mad that people think all she does is party:

It doesn’t piss me off because they don’t know me. So it’s easy for them to draw their own conclusion, it’s their right to. How can they know any different. But I just try to be as honest with myself as possible, be realistic with who I am. It’s not just partying. I’ve become a square, I hate partying. Maybe because it’s the same music every night. I don’t know, ya’ll feel me? Maybe we need some new DJs or something.

Whether she “order outs” for men while she’s on tour to get her “womanly needs” met:

I’m such a bootleg rockstar. I literally do…nothing. I’m embarrassed to say that. It’s disgusting, pathetic. I tell you, I’m a bit of a square recently.

We Almost Lost One of the PopTarts Over the Weekend


Remember her?

Let us refresh your memory.

She’s the one that used to be known for stunt queen partial nudity before Miley Cyrus decided hat clothes are for losers. Well, over the weekend, she was almost killed by wildlife. Unfortuntely, for the entire world, the animal had pity on her and let her make it.

Ri-ho-ho was in Phuket over the weekend trying to get freaky with a loris and of course, she just had to run to one of her social media accounts to let everyone know where she was and what she was doing. Rihanna posted photos with a cute furry animal. As it turns out, the cute furry animal is known as a loris, which can be deadly if it releases its poison. Basically, if it comes into contact with humans, the poison would have had Rihanna twerkin’ until nothing was workin’.

As in death.

But Ri-Ri, ever the survivor, managed to live another day and now that loris is being seen as a heel for not carrying out the deed.

Tina Turner: Love’s Got EVERYTHING to Do With It

Proving herself to be THE ultimate cougar of all time, the Queen of Rock, Tina Turner, has finally allowed her man of the last nearly 30 years to put a ring on it. German producer Erwin Bach married Tina Turner in a civil ceremony in Switzerland with a Buddhist celebration planned on Lake Zurich on Sunday.

Ike who?

For those that are not up on their music history, Tina Turner was married to the original Chris Brown of his era, Ike Turner, until 1976, when she left him after severe spousal abuse (are you reading this Rihanna?!) and never looked back. This is the second marriage for Turner and probably her last. Whoever said life doesn’t get better with age obviously hasn’t taken a look at Tina Turner’s lifetina-turner-erwin-bach.

Or her legs.

Congrats to the couple!

Chris Brown: Hit and Run Fun

Chris Brown’s victim has obviously been paid a little something something under the table, because she is siding with him over a car accident that could have him in the slammer in relation to his current probation. In other words, Mr. Brown may be going down! And in typical whiny ass fashion, Chris is running to his Twitter account as if someone cares…

“I did everything I was suppose to do during the so called hit n run, I provided the correct info. There were no injuries or damages. C’mon!!”

In the worst case scenario, Chris may be seeing a bit of cell time because he is still on probation for beating down his on again/off-again piece Rihanna.
See what happens when you break the law people?!
This is a hit and run that Chris may not be able to wiggle out of!

Stay tuned!

CELEB SPOTTING: Rihanna Shops at Atrium NYC


Last night Rihanna stopped in Atrium Soho located on 644 Broadway (at Bleecker) to shop for a few hours. Accompanying Rihanna was best friend Melissa Ford and brother Rajad Fenty. The store closed at 8 pm that night out of courtesy for the customer.

Chris Brown was nowhere in sight. It seems as if these two could be done with each other…for now.

Rihanna Doesn’t Waste Any Time


After only a few minutes officially being disjointed from her Ike Turner, one of the world’s busiest poptrix has slung her gorgeous tittyballs to the next man that will have her. She may be single, but Rihanna is always attached. So who’s next in her field of f*ckery?

Goodbye, Chrissy Brown.

Hello, J.R. Smith

Enter the love triangle?

After her show in Brooklyn the other night, Jay-Z’s hottest commodity was spotted with New York Knicks baller J.R. Smith. Although there were no clear signs of lust between the two, we can rest assured when we say they definitely were not together to discuss the weather.

Now we all know Chris Brown will attack any other man that dares to touch his piece, so is J.R. safe from the hands and fists of Ike the II?

We doubt Chris can even reach J.R. neck to strangle it.

Let’s see how this plays out.
