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

Watch: Patti Smith Covers Rihanna's "Stay" As Only She Can
“I will now sing to you the 2013 song of the year."

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 beautiful way. Love. [Cover Me Songs]

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 — I watched and will recap every single moment I remember (after four hours of sleep and some lukewarm coffee) in GIFs and video clips! Check it, after the jump… Keep reading »

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

Chris Brown and Rihanna

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, oh, just about an eternity in the sulfurous pit of hell. The “Fifty Shades of Grey” fan fiction (no, really?) is summarized as follows. I’ll let you connect the dots. Keep reading »

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 think something as permanent as a tattoo is more of a “tribute” than a temporary appropriation.   I would be curious to read in the comments what any Indian readers of The Frisky think.

  • Pink sounded off on Twitter after she was bashed for letting her two-year-old ride a motorbike with husband Carey Hart. I don’t see what the big deal is.  Is it extremely safe? No, but neither is speeding on the highway.  I’m sure a professional motorbike rider like Hart is an excellent driver, especially with such precious cargo. [People] Keep reading »

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 recipe for healthy cohabitation. Read more at The Gloss…

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]
  • Pillow-lipped hottie Tom Hardy is set to play Elton John in the biopic “Rocketman.” [The Wrap]
  • Katharine McPhee was photographed giving her “Smash” director a very romantic kiss — which is shocking only because they are both very married. [Us Weekly]
  • Frisky dude BFF and former Mind of Man columnist has written a beautiful essay about his dad and sobriety and videogames that you should totally read immediately. [Medium] Keep reading »

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

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 hijab, authorities at the mosque were quick to label Rihanna’s photos “inappropriate” and promptly asked her to leave. According to a statement posted to their website, it seems it was less Ri’s ensemble and more her “disrespectful positions” that were the problem. (Reminder: Abu Dhabi is where most of the atrocious “Sex and the City 2″ takes place so, you know, surely RiRi’s shoot is less offensive than that.) Check a couple more shots the singer was able to snap before being kicked to the curb after the jump… [Instagram] Keep reading »

Ke$ha Is Showing Off More T&A On Instagram

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 pose awesomely alongside animals while hitting the local zoo with her fam. Without further ado, check out Rihanna, dressed to kill, hangin’ out with baby tigers, giraffes, giant crabs, and more … [Instagram]
