Watch: Patti Smith Covers Rihanna’s “Stay” As Only She Can

This video, while a little less than a month old, brought me joy on this snowy Tuesday afternoon. Back on December 30, during her 67th birthday concert in New York City, the legendary Patti Smith played a cover of Rihanna’s “Stay,” calling it the song of 2013. Naturally, she sang it in her own bizarrely…

Everything (I Can Remember) That Went Down At The 2013 American Music Awards (In GIFs & Clips!)

The American Music Awards are basically the poor man’s poor man Grammy Awards — worse than the Billboard Awards but arguably better than the People’s Choice Awards. If you missed the festivities, because you were traveling for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, or watching “The Walking Dead” or football, or clipping your toenails, NOT TO WORRY…

“Fifty Shades” Fanfic Makes BDSM Fantasy Out Of Rihanna And Chris Brown Abuse

I have just one word for “author” J. Lola: taste. In this context, it is defined as the ability to make discerning judgments about aesthetic, artistic, and intellectual matters, and this J. Lola here has approximately none of it. Lola’s e-book, “Fifty Shades of Sin,” will run you 99 cents for your Amazon Kindle and,…

Rihanna Got A Henna-Inspired Tattoo All Over Her Hand

Rihanna got a henna-inspired tattoo all over her hand and wrist this weekend in a grueling 11-hour tat session with artist Bang Bang McCurdy. However, as The Gloss notes, some South Asian bloggers have criticized non-Indians for getting henna tattoos as cultural appropriation. Generally, I would be inclined to agree with them, although I…

Two Extremely Famous Women Are About To Be Roommates

Because some men just want to watch the world burn, heavy partiers Rihanna and Cara Delevingne have decided it’s a good idea to move in together. An ever-reliable “unnamed source” told Sugar Scape, “The two decided that since they have such similar lifestyles—up all night raving at nightclubs—they’d make perfect roommates.” Yep. That’s definitely the…

Rihanna Works The Pole Poolside

Oh hey, that looks comfy. Rihanna is on my dream vacay in Greece right now and had herself a provocative (duh) poolside photoshoot, because that’s RiRi does. Nice view! See a few more of her Instagram shots, after the jump!

Rihanna Incites More Controversy, Maybe Changes Song Lyrics To Support Palestine

While performing in Tel Aviv, Rihanna supposedly maybe changed the lyrics of her song “Pour It Up” to reflect her support of Palestine and, well, Israeli media is not stoked about it. [Buzzfeed]

Rihanna Had A Mini Photo Shoot At A Mosque In Abu Dhabi, Got The Boot For Being “Inappropriate”

Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is the world’s largest Muslim place of worship, so of course bad girl RiRi decided it would be the ideal venue for a spontaneous Instagram photoshoot. But donning a far more demure outfit than, say, a denim thong (though who knows what she has on underneath) and wearing a…

Rihanna Brings Some Serious Style To The Johannesburg Zoo

Rihanna gets a lot done in a day, regardless of whether or not a proper pair of pants is involved. Her trip to South Africa this week yielded not only a history-making performance as the youngest ever female artist to sell out the Johannesburg stadium, but also — more importantly — plenty of opportunities to…

Rihanna Gets A Traditional Maori Tattoo With A Chisel; I Can’t Watch

I’m pretty sure I would actually rather get a tattoo done with a chisel myself than watch this excruciating video of the process, as performed on Rihanna. Maybe you’ll have better luck? [via Buzzfeed]…

On Rihanna Showing Us It’s Okay To Be A Female Narcissist

“To be a female narcissist is an act of political defiance comparable to not being humble as a person of color. It’s about preserving your dignity in a world where you’re constantly told you aren’t shit and are expected to act accordingly.”
Confused on how to feel after viewing Rihanna’s newest and, quite frankly,…

Gird Your Loins Because Rihanna’s Video For “Pour It Up” Is Here

Rihanna is the Prince Harry to Beyonce’s Wills. A lot naughtier, possibly hotter and definitely dealing in buckets of fucks not given, RiRi is kind of the best. With Beyonce, we know exactly what is coming up — good hair, couture and a lot of dance tights. But with Rihanna, the possibilities are endless. Will

Rihanna Swears She’s A “Square” Now; We’re Not Sure If We Believe Her

“Recently I’ve become a square … I hate partying. I don’t know if it’s my heels — I don’t like standing up in my heels for hours. I don’t know if it’s that, but I’ve been so bored of it … I tell you, I’m a bit of a square recently. Don’t feel bad for…

Jared Leto Sings Rihanna’s “Stay,” World Gets Wet

My first reaction to seeing this video of 30 Seconds to Mars covering Rihanna’s “Stay” was, Oh so that’s how Jordan Catalano sings now. For some reason, I assumed Jared Leto always sounded exactly the way he did when Frozen Embryos covered the Ramones’ “Sedated,” or when he sang that song “Red” about his car, o…

Rihanna’s Blue Lipstick Is Beyond Hideous Yet We Can’t Look Away

Sooooo, yeah — Rihanna wore blue lipstick to enjoy a meal out at a restaurant in London, proving once again that she’s not afraid to take risks when it comes to her appearance. (Remember the red leopard print jumpsuit? Maybe it’s better if you don’t.)

I know blue makeup really isn’t anything new,…

It’s Safe To Assume Rihanna Is Making Fun Of Miley Cyrus, Right?

Rihanna was bored — so bored and sooooo faded – with everything at the MTV VMAs, especially Miley Cyrus’ twerkfest with Robin Thicke. For every sad booty pop, Ri had one less fuck to give. So I don’t know why I am so convinced that when Rihanna was photographed in London today — sticking out her tongue…

That’s A Lot Of Look: Rihanna’s Camo Onesie

And here we have Rihanna strutting through the airport in a camo onesie — and kind of, somehow making it work. Is anyone surprised? No? Didn’t think so. Also: I just have to point out that RiRi’s looking much more amused by her own fashion choices than she was by Miley’s twerking, and I can’t…

Bored Rihanna Reacts To Major Life Events

It’s hard to choose the best part of Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, but if I had to pick just one memorable nanosecond, it would be the bored, faintly annoyed reaction Rihanna gave to Miley Cyrus’s out of control tongue-out twerkathon performance of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines” (with Robin Thicke). Rihanna had the…

8 Style Lessons From Celebs Caught Out At The Club

What you wear out to a night of drinks and dancing can be the difference between having a booty-shaking awesome good time, and winding up scowling miserably at the bar while all your friends are having fun. Wear a dress that’s too tight, or heels that are too high, and you’ll be ready to go…
