Who was that elegant young woman with the pixie haircut and the sleek white sheath dress at the VMA awards last night? It seems Rihanna had a bit of a style makeover before she walked the red carpet last night. Rihanna has been posting Bible verses on her twitter when she is not terrorizing London bars. Here favoritism for wild curly hair and rough, urban clothes went completely out the window last night. She looked more like Halle Berry than Rihanna. Is she making a change and trying out a more mature look? Or is she having one of those Britanny Spears moment? Every woman has gone through something in their lives that made them want to cut off all their hair. Um, haven’t we? Is this one of those drastic change moments born out of frustration? Or can we expect a more mature and elegant Rihanna in the future?
Do you guys like the new look?
Tonight, after watching a quite ridiculously edited episode of Big Brother and before tonight’s episode ever of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, I found myself flipping around for something good to watch. I happened upon the Oprah interview with Rihanna. I was about ten minutes late, which it seems as though was spent on touching dead grandmother stories. Let’s see if there is anything interesting enough about to happen to make me publish this blog.
This is my first time watching Rihanna speak on TV. I wasn’t expecting a particularly high level of intelligence, but she seems extremely immature. I don’t mean that harshly. She literally seems like a 13-year-old in every sense of the word. It’s amazing to me that with all that she has been through she still has this innocent naiveté about her.
Meanwhile, I got new cable boxes today. They worked great when the guy was here and for the last couple hours I have had my signal drop several times until finally there was none. Now I am trying that reset the box strategy they recommend. Don’t you hate that? /grrrr
The reset didn’t work on the new TV but the bedroom TV has some intermittent connectivity. Rihanna is talking about reconciling with her father. I read something just today about her father calling her fat. She’s actually in Japan with her father now. Why is he living in Japan? I dunno. Anyway, I heard her tell Oprah that she had forgiven Chris Brown and how that doesn’t make her like other victims of domestic violence. But I’ve yet to hear the answer to the question, “Is Chris Brown one of your true loves?” or however inanely Oprah worded the question. It looks like I missed it, because Rihanna is now giving her mother a house and there are four minutes left in the show. So tell me, did I miss anything important? If my fancy new TV every gets along with the new cable box should I watch the interview again? What did O say about the interview before she started? Was there the expected line about how deep and pure Rihanna is and how she is nothing like the nymph she is perceived to be?
Whut I miss? Oh Time for RHONJ and it sounds like the TV is back! Cross your fingers!
So we all know that Oprah has been in Barbados interviewing Rihanna for her Next Chapter show on OWN. Meh. Whatever. If you watch Oprah’s show on OWN then you know that Oprah has stopped trying to be Barbara Walters and has decided to be an entertainment report instead. She brings in someone like 50 cent and has some transformative interview where just falls in love with the person she is interviewing. You can expect the Rihanna interview to go something like this:
Oprah: Gee I thought Rihanna was some out of control musician who likes tweeting nekkid pictures of herself and dating guys that beat her up, but no! She’s a lovely church girl whose grandmother died recently and through this experience she has grown as a person and she is totally responsible and spends her spare time feeding the homeless adopting orphans.
But Anyway, that’s not the point. I am going to need y’all to help me to understand what is going on with Rihanna’s forehead in this picture. I seriously do not get it. Is there something on her forehead or is that really her forehead???
Rihanna and Chris Brown are a constant source of blogger fodder but that may be coming to an end. It seems that last night Chris released some sort of remix of Kayne’s lovely little ditty Theraflu.
You know, that’s the song Kayne used to woo Kim K into his lair because she’s all hard to get and you have to go that extra mile for her. ANYWAY. Chris, who is known for
the respectful way he treats women
his musical gifts freestyled the following lyrics “Don’t fuck with my old bitches … like a bad fur … every industry nigga done had her. Trick or treat like a pumpkin … just to smash her.”
Well isn’t that delightful. It’s just like that time Miss Universe tried to rhyme on Celebrity Apprentice! He rhymed ‘her’ with ‘bad fur’ because… well moving on. Apparently, Rihanna was offended because she unfollowed Chris (how do people keep up with this) just after the song hit the Internet and then he unfollowed her (GASP!) and now they are mad at each other. This morning Chris posted the picture at left with the tweet, “Assumptions! I didn’t say any names so if u took offense [sic] to it then its something you feel guilty about.” Which basically says that Rihanna is calling herself a whore. Ouch salt on wound!
If Chris Brown and Rihanna can’t make it there is no hope for any of us. What a sad day. I’m sure there will still be the hospital IV tweets and the tweets with pictures of Rihanna mostly nekkid though so there is that. And I know y’all are gonna say I am just hating or I want to be Chris Brown or something but doesn’t he look awful?
Rihanna and Katy Perry enjoy Coachella. Nothing weird here…
And that is how rumors get started. It all seems to have started with Us Magazine saying that Chris Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche Tran had posted some negative nonsense directed at Rihanna on her Facebook after Rihanna went on a bit of a tirade against Karrueche. I follow Karrueche and I know she only has one link on her twitter and that is to her foodie blog. Karrueche tweeted yesterday that she doesn’t have a facebook page. So the quote Us Magazine gave was bogus. Us Magazine is quickly dropping down the tabloid cesspool into MediaFakeOut levels of crapdom. But that didn’t stop New York Daily News and others from running with the bogus story.
Rihanna posted the above picture with the comment “Imma make you my bitch” directed at Karrueche earlier this week. Because of Karrueche’s Vietnamese background, the picture is considered racist by many. Rihanna has continued to post angry lyrics that seem to be meant as insults to Karrueche. Meanwhile, Karreuche seems happy as a clam tweeting about food and playing Draw Something on her phone. While no woman wins win it comes to Chris Brown, Karrueche certainly seems to be the happier of the two women currently stuck in Chris Brown’s web.
Rihanna is still having a ball in London. Today she went back to the recording studio for another session. London tabloids are saying that she is recording a duet with Cheryl Cole. Cole met Rihanna while attending the Loud Tour concert in London last October. The two singers have been tweeting each other ever since, forming a personal friendship. Cole is expected to drop the first single off of her third album in March. Cole has said that the new album will have a more urban feel than her previous recordings. In addition to working with Rihanna, Cole has expressed interest in working with Nicki Minaj and Eminem. Cole was in LA in early January and there was much speculation that she was recording with Rihanna at that time. It seems after a couple months of anticipation, today is the day the duet will be recorded.
I totallty support dressing comfy for a recording session, Rihanna. But I think someone should tell you a visor does not cover your roots. Go back to the baseball cap.
Rihanna is back to work in London after several days of partying and celebrating her BRIT award. She spent a full day in the recording studio in addition to working on her video. The British paps are saying she left the studio very late on Friday looking exhausted. Unfortunately, she didn’t get much sleep in her hotel as she tweeted the following. ” How in the phuck iz my fire alarm gonna give me my wake-up call??! #Classic” Let’s hope she has been too busy to read the tabloids and see what Chris Brown is up to.
While Chris Brown is dodging the cops down in Florida, Rihanna is getting her party on in London. The Daily Mirror caught this picture of Rihanna getting into her car to go out ( looks like she’s already been SOMEWHERE) outside her London hotel. What’s wrong with this picture?
It’s NBA All-Star Weekend in Orlando and the town is going wild. There are star-studded parties all over town making it a tough choice for fans to decide which place to go! Mary J. Blige, Lil Wayne, P. Diddy, Pitbull, Nicki Minaj and Ne-Yo are just some of the big names in town for the festivities. Know who else is there? Chris Brown. Last night Brown performed at the kickoff party (at least he was scheduled to) at H2O Live! and tomorrow night he will be performing at the Roxy. Then on Sunday, he performs at the All-Star finale party after the game at a club called Vain. It’s going to be a very busy weekend in Orlando for Brown.
Unless… Click through the jump to find out what Miami PD has up their sleeve for Chris Brown.
According to a source for Jose Lambiets’ Gossip Extra,
a south Florida blog affiliated with the Miami Herald, Miami detectives are poised to drive to Orlando to pick up Brown as soon as the State Attorney gives the okay. The website sites a source within the police department who say that Tyga, and two body guards for Chris Brown have given statements to the police about the incident. All three said that Chris Brown freaked out because he was leaving with two females and didn’t want the photo on the Internet where Rihanna might see it. The site also claims that one of the three went to the police station to turn in the stolen phone belonging to Christal Spann. One of the body guards took another phone from one of Christal Spann’s companions on Sunday morning, erased the pictures that she took and returned the phone to her. Chris Brown took Christal’s phone while sitting in the back of a black Bentley and the car drove off. Gossip Extra posted that information late last evening.
Gossip Extra claims that a law enforcement source indicated that the charge of robbery would be filed against Brown today. Due to the high profile nature of the case the po po are trying to be sure they have all their legal ducks in a row before filing the charge. So if you have tickets to see Chris Brown this weekend in Orlando, he might be unavailable, or better yet, you might get to see him carted off to the jail house! If you go, let me know!
According to TMZ Chris Brown got into a bit of trouble this past weekend in Miami. According to their website:
Chris Brown has been accused of angrily snatching some girl’s iPhone outside a nightclub in Miami this weekend … and driving off with it — law enforcement tells TMZ.
A rep for the Miami Beach PD tells TMZ, 24-year-old Christal Spann filed a police report Sunday for “robbery by snatching” — claiming she followed Chris and rapper Tyga out of Cameo nightclub early in the morning (see photo above) … and snapped a picture of Chris getting into his Bentley.
Christal told cops … Chris flipped out when he saw her camera phone– then grabbed it through the car window, saying, “Bitch, you’re not gonna put that on the Internet.”
The incident occurred, according to police reports, during the early morning hours on Sunday as Chris Brown and rapper Tyga were leaving the Cameo nightclub on Miami Beach. Brown was performing at the venue in his Mr. T chains. A fan, whose name is either Shanae or Christal Spann (TMZ referrs to her as Christal Spann, CBS Miami refers to her as Shanae) followed him outside to his car and took a picture of him in his Bentley. There are pictures showing Brown walking out with a large body guard and many people around who likely witnessed the incident.
Brown was in Miami with Karrueche Tran his girlfriend or perhaps his “cover” for his relationship with Rihanna if you believe the rumors. The pair went to Miami for Valentine’s Day one day after Chris Brown was seen at Rihanna’s Birthday party. Karrueche tried to present the trip to the media as a romantic Valentine’s trip. However, Brown was in Miami to perform at Cameo. Rihanna spent the weekend in London
rehearsing for the BRIT Awards.
As of now there are no charges filed against Chris Brown. My guess is there won’t be. Hell, if you can throw a chair through a plate glass window of a dressing room at GMA and not get any charges, snatching a phone from some chicks hand and driving off with it should basically just result in a free iphone. That is how things seem to work. Brown still has two years of probation left. It would be beneficial to him to have these charges filed and his probation violated. The boy has anger management issues and needs therapy. Or a stint in the big house to think about things. Rihanna needs to get herself some therapy to find out why this man is still attractive to her. Unfortunately, I think the situation between these two is going to get worse before it gets better. Looks like one of those learn the hard way type situations to me.
Rihanna looked young and healthy in London last night. She was there for the BRIT awards where she won International Solo Artist of the Year. She wore a Givency gown with buttons from top to bottom, yet she had the lower half of the dress open from a tasteful level to the floor. This is the first picture of her I have seen with her nipples covered in I don’t know how long! Unlike the Viola Davis photo we looked at recently, Rihanna, while showing a lot of skin right down to her waist, her small bosom makes the look more high fashion that stripper chic. What do you think? Also, I can see four tattoos. Can you? See her other two looks for the evening after the jump!

|Rihanna heads out to party in London
after the awards surround by paparazzi.
Rihanna wore Daisy Duke cut-offs and a curly wig for her on-stage performance which included throwing some green paint around. The picture at left was taken in the press room immediately after the awards ceremony was over. The item in her right hand is her trophy for Best International Solo Act. Britan loves Rihanna and this is the second year in a row she has won the title. Bruno Mars won the male version. After doing some press Rihanna changed into the outfit on the right to head out to London clubs amid throngs of paparazzi. In narrowing down what I hate most about her party outfit, I’m going to have to go with the blue bobby socks/hose. What about you/
