Recent pictures of Rihanna show that she’s put on a noticeable amount of weight. Apparently that’s a concern for a lot of people. Some people think she’s pregnant with either Drake or Chris Brown’s baby. Some people think she had the munchies real bad. I think sometimes women and men put on weight for various reasons, and I’m sure if Rihanna is pregnant, she’ll let you know when she wants you to know. And if she’s subsiding on a diet of mac ‘n cheese and biscuits, then she can tear up her green card because she’s already proven she’s a naturalized U.S. citizen.
Maybe because I’m not gay or woman, but when I saw what Rihanna wore to the Met Gala last night, my mind wasn’t blown and I didn’t use all caps in a tweet. Rihanna could pretty much wear anything and still look hot as hell, so maybe whatever this is was supposed to remind us of that. Also a good reminder? The Internet never takes long.
Rihanna is hot as hell and can do whatever she wants in my opinion. Like posting this pic of Queen Elizabeth’s head on her body. You probably won’t believe this, but people got offended.
But little do those people know that Rihanna is a Black Belt Social Media Troll, so this happened.
Rihanna is going to Harvard to accept an award. This seems peak 2017.
Rihanna has been named the 2017 Harvard University Humanitarian of the Year, and will come to campus to accept the Peter J. Gomes Humanitarian Award at a ceremony next Tuesday (Feb. 28).
“Rihanna has charitably built a state-of- the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados,” said S. Allen Counter, the Harvard Foundation’s director. She has also created the Clara and Lionel Foundation Scholarship Program [named for her grandmother and grandfather] for students attending college in the U.S. from Caribbean countries, and supports the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project, a multiyear campaign that will provide children with access to education in over 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls and those affected by lack of access to education in the world today.”
I mean, I hope would get an award if I did all that, so goof for Rihanna. She’s hot as hell and gives money to treat breast cancer and educating young girls. I know what you’re saying, Rihanna doesn’t deserve this. You’re probably right. I look at the list of nominees and it was between her and the time you tweeted #NoDAPL during brunch. You were so close! Maybe next year, man.
Not even two months ago, Drake was awkwardly professing his love for Rihanna at the VMAs in a tuxedo for some reason. He even used her Christian name. People thought he was gonna propose. But this is Drake. There’s too many strippers and Waffle House waitresses when Rihanna isn’t around.
Drake and Rihanna have split. Sources revealed exclusively to Life & Style magazine that the “Work” singer told the Canadian rapper it was over after he was spotted getting close to Instagram model Dakota Gonzalez at the afterparty for his September 11 concert in Las Vegas. “When Rihanna isn’t at Drake’s concerts,” the source says, “Dakota is often there by his side. It makesRihanna furious.” Drake, 29, was also noticeably absent from the 28-year-old beauty’s Puma fashion show in Paris last month.
It’s hard to keep up with the women Drake has fallen in love with, but I guess Dakota Gonzalez in the new one. Her Instagram is already set to private and that’s a bad business plan for an Instagram model. From what I can tell, she looks like Rihanna had sex with Ariana Grande in an alternate dimension where Ariana Grande would get pregnant from that and have a baby that would grow up to look like Dakota Gonzalez. “Dakota” means “friend”, so hopefully Rihanna doesn’t have anything to worry about.
The Fall/Winter issue of CR Fashion Book is dedicated to Marie Antoinette for some reason, so why not get Rihanna and Terry Richardson for the cover and justify that decision with some pretentious bullshit?
For our cover, Carine and Terry Richardson reimagined Rihanna as a modern-day Marie Antoinette. And there couldn’t be anyone more fit for this role of the disparaged yet deeply compelling Queen. “In this issue, I wanted to capture that sense of attraction and repulsion: the fantasy of glamour but also the poison and prison of femininity and society…”I wanted to show that she is not just a villain to be despised or a muse to be channeled,” says Carine. “She is neither, actually. She is a prototype for contemporary fame, body, beauty, celebrity, and femininity. Everything done by her and to her has influenced society’s concept of womanhood, for better or worse.”
I don’t know what any of that meant, but Carine Roitfeld seems to have to put way too much thought into this. Probably cocaine.
Rihanna won the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs last night, and Drake showed up to present her with the award wearing a tux for some reason. During his speech, he said “She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old.” He was expecting a different reaction.
I’ll let the Internet explain the rest. (more…)
I don’t know much about Star Trek, but if I was fighting aliens or whatever in space, a Rihanna song wouldn’t be on my mixtape. Not to make the obvious sledgehammer joke here, but sometimes things are obvious for a reason. And didn’t Anton Yelchin “hit a wall“? Ok, Carry on, Paramount. Maybe do another Rihanna song where you can’t understand what she’s saying. Shouldn’t be too hard to find.
Rihanna trolled the shit out of Steph Curry last night on Instagram after the Warriors choked like they were married to Johnny Depp. No word if Ayesha Curry still plans to go all the way to the convention or not. Here’s what we do know: Rihanna would jump on Lebron James‘ penis faster than Draymond Green.
Witness the rest of Rihanna’s thirst and savagery below. (more…)
Since RIAA announced they would include streaming numbers to determine an album’s gold or platinum status, Rihanna’s new album, ANTI, was certified platinum the day after its release. Why? Because Samsung bought a million copies. In reality, it’s sold 460 copies. Congrats, Rihanna!
Rihanna’s eighth studio album, ANTI, debuts at #27 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart. It premiered on TIDAL and sold one million album units through the singer’s partnership with Samsung. The RIAA certified it platinum, but Billboard said it will not count those numbers. Instead, the chart reports that ANTI sold 15,896 album equivalent units, 460 album sales and more than four million streams. ANTI is available for physical release Friday (February 5).
And if you’re wondering how badly TIDAL and Rihanna want to inflate these numbers, all you have to do it read this. So, in conclusion, Rihanna album will soon reach certified diamond status because she’s giving it away for free. I know a lot of people in Atlanta with mix tapes who will be excited for this news.
Here’s the rest of the chicks at The Choice premiere not named Kara Del Toro.
