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]
Oh, was Rihanna on a Hawaiian vacation? I thought she was at Coachella Tweeting pics of herself looking amazing in a denim bikini. Anyhow, she was in Hawaii and she posted the Facebook pictures to prove it. We get it, she looks freaking bangin’ in a bikini. Only problem: She accidentally posted one which exposed her nipple. Hey, it happens to the best of us sometimes. Click on to see the NSFW shot of Ri Ri and more celebs whose nipples have accidentally escaped their clothing. [Gossip Cop]
Rihanna clearly DOES NOT want to talk about her love life. While she sings about finding love in her songs and opens up about her past with Chris Brown in magazines, the singer shut down her second reporter who tried to ask her about relationships on camera.
RiRi did an interview with Australia’s version of “The Today Show,” “Sunrise,” while promoting”Battleship” down under. It was all going well … until the reporter veered away from the movie. Read more and watch the video…
Remember a few years ago, when everybody was doing that horrible “Icing” thing, which was when you presented your “friend” with a Smirnoff Ice and they had to drink it — on one knee! — in public? Yeah, that. Well, Amelia just did the James Franco version of that, Franco-ing. Franco-ing is when you spring a James Franco image, video or story on an unsuspecting friend, specifically a friend who does not like James Franco. Amelia just sent me the URL for the video above, in which James Franco lip syncs Rihanna, and now I’ve been Franco-ed. Which means I need a shot of Jameson. [Huffington Post]
What is this, a kimono pantsuit? I don’t get it. How does one get in and out of this garment? It seems like Rihanna has been getting into Asian-inspired styling in a big way — she wore a Pucci kimono pajama set to another premiere of “Battleship” just last week. On the bright side, this is the best hair and makeup I’ve ever seen on the pop star. Props! [photo via Just Jared]
What a difference a few days makes! Rihanna showed off a much darker new ‘do today at a press conference for ”Battleship” in Japan — just days after promoting the movie as a blonde in London. Not only was she rocking black locks, but the side of her head was also shaved. Check out her new look!
