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.
