Rihanna Cuts Interview Short Over Relationship Questions

Rihanna clearly DOES NOT want to talk about her love life. While she sings about finding love in her songs and opens up about her past with Chris Brown in magazines, the singer shut down her second reporter who tried to ask her about relationships on camera.

RiRi did an interview with Australia’s version of “The Today Show,” “Sunrise,” while promoting”Battleship” down under. It was all going well … until the reporter veered away from the movie. Read more and watch the video…

  • Jennifer Lawrence has apparently heard that some critics of “The Hunger Games” have suggested she’s too fat, telling a source, “This is hilarious. First, people say how so many actresses in Hollywood look anorexic, and now they are criticizing me for looking normal.” True! [PopBytes]

Every week, there’s a news story that makes us go “RIHANNA, GIRL, NO.” It’s not a secret that the pop star’s personal life is worrisome. We knew about Rihanna’s father’s past physical abuse towards her mother during her childhood, but it turns out RiRi’s still flying first class on the Daddy Issues Express. In an interview with Heat magazine, her formerly-estranged dad Ronald Fenty shared his special, terrible brand of parenting. Keep reading »

  • Rihanna tweeted a photo of a bag of rice cakes with sunglasses and hoop earrings, which some people are saying is a racist potshot at Chris Brown’s girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, who is half-Vietnamese. Considering how Rihanna was rightfully outraged when a Dutch magazine called her the n-word last year, I’m surprised she would do something like this. [PopCrush, Twitter.com/Rihanna]

Seth Rogen, host of last night’s Independent Spirit Awards, pretty much killed it in his opening monologue, taking well-deserved shots at Mel Gibson (“Drive made Jews so scary I thought Mel Gibson directed it”) and Lars Von Trier. But his best joke killed three birds with one stone — Brett Ratner, who was forced to resign from producing the Oscars after he used a homophobic slur, Chris Brown, and the Grammy Awards. Referring to Ratner’s swift ouster, Rogen joked that he was better suited to produce the Grammys anyway, because “at the Grammys, you can literally beat the shit out of a nominee and be asked to perform twice.” Oof. Burn. [Perez Hilton]

Week In Review: Totally Awesome, Totally Crap

So much happens in a week! It’s hard to keep it all straight. That’s why we’re keeping track for you, with our new helpful charticle, Totally Awesome, Totally Crap, which highlights the best and worst of the past seven days. This week: We’re loving Adele giving the middle finger at the Brit Awards. You do not cut off Adele. We’re also super stoked that “Community” — the best, most underrated show on TV — will officially be returning on March 15. Also getting the thumbs up: Zac Efron “accidentally” dropping a condom at the premiere of his new movie, “The Lorax.” Hooray for using protection! I am secretly hoping it’s because he’s boning the Lorax.

Totally sucky this week? Rihanna recording a song with ex-lover/beater/total shitbird Chris Brown. We’re also kind of disgusted that Bobby Brown is writing a tell-all. Too soon! Plus, what don’t we know about you after we watched you pull poop out of Whitney’s ass on your reality show? Beyond that — is there no such thing as deep, unabiding, trustful love anymore? Jessica Biel doesn’t think so, which is why she’s reportedly making Justin Timberlake sign a pre-nup that grants her at least $500,000 every time he cheats. True love is dead.

With Chris Brown and Rihanna releasing two remixes together and rumors of them seeing each other flying, it’s understandable to feel disappointed in Rihanna. It’s hard watching anyone step into such an obvious trap, especially when she’s been warned repeatedly of how dangerous it is. Add to that the fear that Rihanna’s choice to forgive Brown sends a signal to young fans that domestic violence is no big deal, and you have more than enough justifications to be upset with Rihanna.

But if you sincerely want to reduce the incidence of domestic violence in our society, I beg you to refrain from judging her. Strange as it may sound, judging women who return to their abusers only makes the problem worse. Keep reading »

“Whatever my friend Rihanna wants to do.  It’s whatever she wants to do. [To] forgive is a word that people need to rethink and actually figure out whether they can do that, or if they’re just saying that they can forgive and they actually can’t and don’t possess the power to do that. And [Rihanna] does, [and] I do, along with a lot of people I know do. You know we’re all human at the end of the day. This isn’t ‘hey, [I'm] sticking up for this person, or whatever.’ It’s not about that. It’s really about what I was taught as a kid. This is how I thought the world was supposed to work, you know. We want forgiveness when it’s us, but we don’t want forgiveness when it’s somebody else. It’s like you’re in a glass house and and you’re casting rocks out … You’re just shattering your own house because the same willingness you have to not forgive someone else, you have to understand that one day you’re going to have a child and that child may do something that you don’t sincerely approve of. But you have to start to understand that we are human and this is how it is.”

– The Dream, who produced Rihanna’s song “Birthday Cake” that she remixed with her abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, tells PopCrush what he thinks about the controversy. Keep reading »
