The media is moving on from “zombie apocalypse” to “Rihannapocalypse.” The gossip rags are teeming with stories about the singer’s rebellious ways, and Newser rounds up the juicy tidbits:
Sign No. 1 that she’s nearing breakdown: The singer apparently spent yesterday shopping in SoHo … wearing a strapless bra … that was pretty darn see-through, reports the New York Post.
She now appears naked on a billboard in Times Square, but that’s not the falling-apart part. The Daily Mail notes that the ad promotes her perfume Rebelle, and it’s the second fashion ad to create buzz this week. The Sun apparently claimed Rihanna used a body double in a sexy Armani Jeans ad, leading the singer to tweet, “Ok @thesunnewspaper, this is the only way I could say this to you!!! F*** YOU.” Read more …
If style is cyclical (Is it? I don’t know, I made that up), Rihanna is back to being in the pre-makeover stage of her sartorial evolution. What in the holy hell is she wearing? I can see her nipples through her bra. A bra she is wearing as a top, by the way. Is this what having kajillions of dollars and a stylist on call buys you these days? More celebs in see-through clothing, after the jump… [Photo: Fame/Flynet] Keep reading »
Chris Brown is widely known for violently attacking Rihanna, and now it seems he is using his music to ask her for forgiveness! The controversial singer released his new song, “Off That Liquor,” and now the internet is burning with rumors that Chris is actually asking Ri-Ri for forgive-forgive.
The lyrics in the single contain the following lines, “Them other girls ain’t got nothing on ya. Patron mixed with … that’s your recipe.” Ri-Ri is a very well known fan of Patron tequila.
Brown continues in the song, “Come, if it’s loving that you need, from me!” which almost exactly mirrors Rihanna’s lyrics in her 2005 hit, “If It’s Lovin That You Want.” Read more…
The Kim Kardashian-Kanye West publicity stunt—er, relationship—lives on: A jealous Kim has now banned all other women from hanging around her man. “Kim is incredibly protective of Kanye and doesn’t want any women near him unless she is there—even his friends,” a source tells the Sun. Rihanna, who has joined Kanye and Jay-Z on stage, “wasn’t even allowed to go into his dressing room without Kim being there.” But perhaps Kim needn’t worry: The New York Daily News reports that Kanye blew off a planned performance at Cannes last week to have dinner with Kim, and adds that Rihanna is dating New York Knick JR Smith anyway.

We love seeing celebs without makeup, and this year, People magazine’s “Most Beautiful” issue even featured a bunch of famous ladies sans fards. But it used to be that celebrities would avoid being seen without a full face of makeup. What changed? A fascinating article from New York magazine charts the changing celebrity attitude towards getting caught without their faces made. Stars like Snooki, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have all willingly been shot without makeup, with the idea that they’re somehow subverting the celebrity machine in doing so. Keep reading »
Terry, Terry, he’s so very gross. But yet somehow celeb ladies (and reputable mags and newspapers, ahem New York Times) continue to work with the geezer. The latest collaborator? Rihanna, who did a shoot with Richardson at his Bowery studio on Wednesday. When will these ladies learn? [Terry's Diary]
The cover of a recent issue of LOOK magazine features Rihanna looking, well, a little wonky, no? That’s because the photo of the singer is an exceptionally poor composite, cut and pasted together from two separate images. Rihanna’s head is from a photo taken on the red carpet of the “Battleship” premiere in Japan, while her body was from a photo shot at the Stella McCartney presentation at London Fashion Week. Oh, and her body was flip-flopped and her dress was colored pink instead of green. How creative! Why not just draw a picture of the Rihanna with crayons? Seriously. [Red Carpet Fashion Awards]
Sadly, while Photoshop is a necessary and helpful tool, it is often used to excess, especially when it comes to “perfecting” celebrity images. Just look at these other lovely celeb women who’ve suffered at the hands of an overeager Photoshopper.
Happy 4/20! There are lots of famous stoners, and unlike Miley Cyrus, many of them don’t give a crap who knows that they love to smoke weed. Recently, some new pics of Rihanna smoking a joint at Coachella surfaced. They are hardly the first photos of the pop star getting stoned, but MTV tweeted that her “marijuana photos from Coachella spark[ed] controversy.” Rihanna tweeted back that she “ran out of f**ks to give.” That’s what pot will do to you. But seriously, she’s officially our favorite celebrity pot head. Reason #1: She doesn’t care what we think. Click through for more reasons. [Buzzfeed]
