Lately, Rihanna has been dressing in a way I like to call “post-style,” in that she has seemingly “done” every possible look on the books without going the full Gaga, and so the only other direction to go is in having so sense of style at all. Which is why I think she’s been wearing so many ball caps and oversized sweatshirts and generally dressing like a shlubby dude. But she still brings it from time to time, only now it’s a little more surprising when I like something she’s wearing. Like this outfit, which has a certain Hollywood Boulevard ’80s hooker vibe to it … which I enjoy, incase that wasn’t clear. What do you think though?
I have something to say to my lady blogger friends who write about domestic violence. Please tread more carefully with your words, and please don’t be so sure you know what you’re talking about. Unless you a) have been in an abusive relationship or b) are a professional who is trained to treat people in abusive relationships, you could be doing more harm than good.
The most recent debate that had my hair standing on end was the conversation that erupted around Dr. Drew Pinsky’s comments on Lance Bass’ new SiriusXM radio show. Keep reading »
This is a picture of Rihanna on her way to a big party for Jay-Z Thursday night. Rihanna, Jay and the rest were celebrating the opening of Jay-Z’s new Barclay Center, a performing arts and sports stadium in Brooklyn. We’re all for celebrating, but we’re a bit more on the fence about Rihanna’s matchy-matchy outfit. It strikes us as just a tad bit Palm-Beach-Florida-Cheesecake-On-The-Lanai for our taste. Really, Ri-Ri, no need to dress like a “Golden Girl” just yet. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
One summer trend that’s definitely sticking around for fall (and hopefully forever?!) is the stylish high-top sneaker.

We found 15 celebs–from Kristen Stewart to Rihanna to Amy Poehler–strutting their stuff in rad high tops. Click through to check out all the different ways they styled ‘em!
hris Brown has tested positive for drugs while on probation for a 2009 felony conviction for assaulting former gal pal Rihanna. He failed a random drug test while doing community service in Virginia. He told a judge in a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday that he had smoked marijuana in California, and had a medical marijuana card from the state issued by an acupuncturist, reports the New York Daily News.

Dr. Drew Pinsky hit up Lance Bass’ SiriusXM radio show and made some eyebrow-raising comments regarding Chris Brown and Rihanna. He started off on a high note, discussing how difficult it is for a woman to leave her abuser. “On average, it takes a woman in a domestic violence situation eight attempts at leaving before she leaves,” Dr. Drew said. “They go back — they misinterpret the intensity as love. They think it’s so intense and great, ‘He loves me so much, that’s why he got so upset.’ We haven’t heard the end of this.”
Lance Bass then asked him if he thinks Rihanna has battered woman syndrome and Dr. Drew replied, “Let’s face it, she’s attracted to that … Listen, I don’t fault either person. I don’t [say,] ‘Oh, it’s a bad person.’ These are human experiences. These are very common situations these days.” Keep reading »
Yesterday, the universe said in unison, again, “What the fuck are you doing Chris Brown?” This time it was because Breezy debuted a new neck tattoo of a face with what appeared to be a bruised/black eye and stitches across the lips. Ignoring the fact it’s an ugly tat, it looks a hell of a lot like his ex-girlfriend Rihanna … whom he gave a black eye and stitches across the lips. Could Chris Brown really be so fucked up as to tattoo Rihanna’s beaten and bloody face on his neck?! He is Captain Poor Decisions, but would he make that poor of a decision? Keep reading »
Hey guys, Chris Brown got a new tattoo! And it’s ugly! And, oh yeah, it appears to be of a woman’s face, complete with a cut and stitched lip, blackened eye, and what look like bruises. Naturally, many are pointing out a resemblance to Rihanna, the ex-girlfriend he famously gave a cut lip, blackened eye, and bruised face, because why wouldn’t they? I don’t actually see much of a resemblance to Rihanna, aside from those identifying marks, but I realllllly have got to wonder what Chris Brown was thinking with this particular ink. Brown, by the way, says the new tattoo is actually supposed to be a “random woman,” not Rihanna, but does not explain why this “random woman” appears to have injuries or marks that look like the injuries he gave to his ex. The most positive spin I can conceive of is that he got this tattoo as a badge of dishonor, a permanent reminder of the damage he caused to a woman. Maybe it’s even a wack attempt of winning Rihanna back. Or maybe I’m over-thinking it and he’s just an idiotic dick and this tattoo has no intentional link to Rihanna. (I actually sort of think it has a Day of the Dead-vibe, but why wouldn’t he just say that if that was his intention?) Discuss! [NY Daily News] [Photo: WENN]
This weekend, Rihanna debuted her 19th tattoo. Yes, her 19th. I knew Rihanna loved body art, but I had no idea she had that many tattoos. So I decided to bring myself up to speed on the state of RiRi’s ink. Let’s work our way through the list of tats, starting with her first…
