A spliff birthday cake, that is. The singer celebrated her 25th birthday on Monday night and partygoers feasted on slices of this dessert, depicting a topless Rihanna straddling a joint. It’s not quite as classy as the cock cake Miley Cyrus got for her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth’s birthday, but it’s pretty awesome. [via TMZ]
Yesterday, I wrote this throwaway post about how Chris Brown said “fuck the haters!” in which I pointed out that people don’t hate him because he was a scrappy underdog, they hate him because he beat his ex-girlfriend and that police reports made it very clear that he was trying to kill her. And then I got this e-mail from a woman:
Hi. I just wanted you to know that this is bullying . Chris brown made a mistake which he has apologized and is reaping the consequences for those actions.

You know, he’s so cool … I really want to see that Jesus.” Read more…

It has just occurred to me that I could have monetized my breakup with Ex-Mr. Jessica much, much better. [Mirth Mag]
Oh, to be a fly on the wall at a photoshoot with Terry Richardson: “Now, bend over the railing and show me your panties … ” Ick, ick, ick. Oh well. She may be a hot mess everywhere else in her life, but at least Lindsay Lohan still remembers her ass is her best asset. [Terry's Diary]
If you’re a fan of Ari Cohen’s Advanced Style blog, where the photographer features a bevy of fun, fabulous, fashionable older women, you’ll be familiar with Zelda Kaplan, one of the site’s stars. Identifiable by her large sunglasses and a propensity for wearing African-inspired prints, Kaplan had seen the world over, favoring countries such as Ghana, Ethiopia, and Nigeria to which she traveled not only to garner fashion inspiration but also to campaign for women’s activism. A grand life full of goodwill and fashion flair, spanning nearly a century, came to a close yesterday when the socialite passed away at the age of 95. Keep reading »
