I saw Rihanna on her Diamonds World Tour a month ago, and it was just the spectacle I had hoped for, from the weird Grecian columns strewn about the stage to the time she came out wearing thigh-high boots and an oversized basketball jersey. She’s kinda the best, even though at times she’s also the worst. She’s messy, she favors oversharing, and she always has really good nails — all things I support. With that said, please accept this video of Rihanna hitting a handsy fan in the head with her mic as her nomination for Patron Saint of Women Who Don’t Give A Fuck. It is perfection.
This morning, we told you about how Rihanna is reportedly headed to Recovery Ranch, a love and relationship rehab located in Tennessee. The reason? Rihanna is supposedly still not over her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. The couple split up in 2009 after he beat her, and then got back together this past year, but broke up again a few months ago. A source (dubious, but a source) told Grazia magazine, “Rihanna is still desperately in love with Chris. It’s like she’s obsessed with him and, although he’s told her it’s over, she just can’t get over him.” So, to deal with that, she’ll allegedly be taking off time from her world tour to attend the Centers for Relationship and Sexual Recovery program. But what is a relationship rehab, anyway?
To start with, the program is focused on treating sex and love addiction in women. According to the program’s website, patients receive gender-specific, trauma-focused therapy; group therapy; equine therapy; and 12-step meetings. The program is fully gender-separate so women can focus on healing (they also run a separate program for men). The program aims to “and eliminate problem patterns of sexual behavior, while helping our clients regain dignity, self-respect, and the trust of those they love.” The program focuses on early childhood trauma and patterns of abuse that may have led the patient to pursue and stay in abusive relationships as adults.

She’s at it again! Amanda Bynes has hurled her favorite insult at two more famous faces. Yesterday, she went after both Perez Hilton (who has been writing on his website about her seemingly public meltdown) and Miley Cyrus. I’m not entirely sure why she is pissed at Miley, but I think it has something to do with Amanda finding Liam Hemsworth hot. Really, there seems no rhyme or reason for Amanda calling someone “ugly.” She just can’t think of anything else to say! Here’s a timeline of all those she has hit with the “ugly” stick in 2013…
I was going to start this post about Rihanna by writing, “Stars, they’re just like us! They go to Paris and take tourist-y photos with friends at the Eiffel Tower!” But then it occurred to me that I was not in Paris this weekend, and you probably weren’t either, and more likely you were doing something a little more local, like running errands and catching up on your fave TV shows and maybe, maybe having a cookout with friends. So maybe stars aren’t like us, because jet-setting to Paris for the weekend is a little expensive and we all had to work today, you know? Ugh, sorry, this post turned into kind of a bummer.
Although my waxer tells me BS stories about women who read magazines and talk on the phone while getting their vaginas waxed (who are you!?), I believe most of us find the process appropriately painful. I use numbing spray and Advil and still, I sweat and occasionally tear up. You’ll see no such pansy assery from Rihanna. According to a gossipy employee at Fuzz Wax Bar in Toronto, Rihanna enjoyed her Brazilian waaaayyy too much.The “insider” reports:
“One of our estheticians brought Rihanna the numbing cream but she just laughed. Most women find a Brazilian wax very painful but she just said: ‘No way, I love the pain. It feels good to me.’ … RiRi was escorted to a treatment room with very thin walls and not a scream or squeal was heard. In fact, it sounded like she was enjoying herself. She was singing and humming songs all through the treatment. None of us could stop laughing.”
New urban waxing legend: women who love the pain so much that they sing while getting they’re pubic hair ripped out. Thanks, RiRi! [Dlisted]
