“[Being a role model] is amazing. It’s an amazing thing and it’s like, it’s a platform that you have to take seriously. Which is why sometimes it’s like I used to be really into Rihanna, that pop star, and then it’s like again, I don’t want to ever throw stones from my glass house, but I follow her on Instagram and I just think about how many little girls beyond what I could even comprehend are obsessed with Rihanna. Like you know, she left Barbados, she’s had this amazing career, she’s won a Grammy.

She’s talented. And then she gets back together with Chris Brown and posts a million pictures of them smoking marijuana together on a bed. And it cracks my heart in half in a way that makes me feel like I’m 95 years old.”

Lena Dunham speaking to Alec Baldwin (he has a radio show!) on the tenuous relationship between fame and being a role model — especially in the case of Rihanna. Dunham makes a valid point that Rihanna isn’t simply living Rihanna’s life — she’s also a public figure that lots of little girls look up to. What do you think Rihanna’s responsibility is to her fans? [WNYC]

Rihanna Nude Photos Surface Following Vacation In Barbados

For once, Rihanna has some naked photos that weren’t self-snapped. While on vacation in her native Barbados over the holidays, some creepy photog took Kate Middleton-style nude photos of the Bajan beauty in her hotel room.

It’s unclear whether or not Rihanna, who has admitted previously that she has no problem with nudity (evident from her own Instagram account), was aware she was being photographed. In a few shots, she bends over, baring her rear end to the camera. In others, she’s topless. Apparently the shots were taken while the singer was switching from one bikini to another — with a break in between to (of course) toke up. Read more…

Ugh, These Two: Rihanna & Chris Brown Go Public

Well, I guess these two ding-a-lings are officially giving it another shot. On Chrismas Day, Rihanna and Chris Brown made their first public appearance as a couple since, you know, that very ugly breakup a few years ago in the aftermath of him beating the crap out of her. The two attended a Lakers game in LA and yucked it up court-side. Whatever. Good luck, Rihanna, seriously.

Style Stealer: Rihanna’s Adidas Obsession

It’s pretty rare to be able to do a Style Stealer post about Rihanna because she’s usually wearing, like, thigh-high snakeskin boots, a bedazzled basketball jersey, and no pants, which isn’t really a steal-able look. And sure, this slouchy Adidas outfit she wore to LAX last week isn’t exactly office-appropriate, but it is a cool casual look, and I love the contrast of sports gear and red lipstick.

Oh, how sad. Chris Brown has deleted his Twitter account. Yesterday, the R&B singer got in a war of very immature words with comedienne Jenny Johnson, after Johnson tweeted that he was a worthless piece of shit. In his defense, Brown proceeded to behave like a worthless piece of shit, calling Johnson a “hoe” and saying that his mom suggested he shit in her eye. Now, Brown deleted all of these tweets, but because Johnson replied to them, they live on because Twitter is a bitch like that. Anyway, Brown also tweeted, “Just ask Rihanna if she mad??????” which I find way more bothersome than the sharting in eyeballs stuff, because it’s, once again, dismissive of his now infamous assault against the singer and his then-girlfriend. Just because Rihanna has “forgiven” him and is still caught up in that abusive relationship (the two were spotted partying together this weekend), doesn’t make that incident okay. Following these tweets, Brown deleted his entire Twitter account, which really just means he’ll continue to behave like a worthless piece of shit, only slightly more privately. Ughs all around.

A Photographic Review Of Rihanna’s 777 Tour

Yeah, so maybe the 150 journalists and fans who were basically imprisoned on Rihanna’s Boeing-777 during the press portion of her 777 Tour didn’t have the best time, or score any intimate time with the singer — but the multitude of photos released from RiRi’s worldwide jaunt indicate that she at least had a blast…

  • A journalist on Rihanna’s 777 tour press junket penned a screed to Gawker on just how awful the experience has been: no bathrooms, three hour delays, and zero interaction with RiRi. Everyone has been flying around Europe on a plane together, hoping for interview time with the pop star to no avail. Lots of the 250 folks on the junket — including fans — have been complaining not-so-secretly about what a mess the trip has been, prompting Rihanna to finally apologize today. “I know you guys got barely any dirt,” she told them. “But I had to be good. I still sound like sh—. It’s impossible to spend time with everybody, and I’m sorry I didn’t. But this was excellent and I would definitely do it again.”  [Gawker, US Weekly]

Journalists On Tour With Rihanna Revolt! Woman Takes FB Profile Shot With Turd!

  • Journalists and bloggers who were chosen to participate in and report from Rihanna’s tour plane — and were flown from Mexico City to Stockholm to London on a Boeing 777 — are protesting the way they’ve been treated. Alas, Rihanna doesn’t seem to care about “Hipster Con Air” (that’s what Julie just called the drama and I LOL’d). [Uptown Magazine]

8 Celebs & The Tattoos We Expect Them To Get

After Scarlett Johansson debuted her new tattoo, Amelia and I both didn’t get it. We had an in-depth conversation about it, where we came to the realization that the reasons we didn’t like it were: A) it was exactly the kind of tattoo we expected Scarjo to get (the same way we expected her to release a Tom Waits cover album) and B) something about it seemed like she was trying too hard to demonstrate her street cred (the same way her Tom Waits cover album did).

We say this as two tattooed women who both have Chinese character tattoos we’re embarrassed of. I have two other tattoos, which I love because they have deep meaning to me. Maybe “Lucky You” has deep meaning to Scarjo, who knows? That’s not important. What’s important is this: Scarjo and her “Lucky You” tattoo inspired a much longer reverie about other celebrity tattoos we are expecting to see any day now. When they come true, just remember, we called it first.

Somebody wasn’t very happy that R&B singer/domestic abuser Chris Brown was going to be performing in Stockholm, Sweden, so they took to the streets and created posters of their own to advertise the event. There is something a tad icky about exploiting Rihanna’s beaten and bruised face to make a point about Brown, but I’ll let it slide because the overarching message is so important: If you’re supporting Chris Brown, you’re supporting violence against women.
