Rihanna Might Be Dating Lewis Hamilton

I’m going to go ahead and say this is a load of bullshit, especially considering it was only a month ago that Rihanna was cozying up to Real Madrid player Karim Benzema, but whatever, let’s go with it. Now she’s apparently hooking up with Formula One star Lewis Hamilton, who is probably better known to you as Nicole Scherzinger‘s ex-boyfriend.

“They’ve had a flirtation for years and have always fancied each other, but since May this year they’ve been talking a lot. Finally their schedules allowed them to spend a weekend in the same part of the world and they made the most of it,” a source close to Rihanna told The Sun.

“They are both really busy but Rihanna has asked him to come to Rock in Rio in September so he can see her perform and spend time together.”

The pair reportedly dined at Da Silvano in New York before moving on to 1 OAK nightclub and RiRi’s penthouse for a private party last Saturday.

“He is a bit infatuated with her and thinks she is not only sexy but incredibly funny, although he knows she has a reputation as a heartbreaker,” a source close to Hamilton said.

Ha. Yeah, I just don’t see it. Rihanna doesn’t really go for big softies (it’s the reason she never lasted with Drake), and I don’t think Ri is trying to settle down with anyone. She needs to be concentrating on getting R8 together, cos I’m over this “no new Rihanna music” bullshit.

Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” Video Is Absolutely Insane


Technically, I was going to post Rihanna‘s “Bitch Better Have My Money” video yesterday, since it came out at midnight on Wednesday night, but I didn’t even get a chance to watch it until last night, so here we are. Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin and what to say about it at all, but RiRi has certainly outdone herself with this one. I mean, I’m a little bit scared of her at this point, because the whole thing is pretty twisted, but I also love it and feel like, well, at least Rihanna’s a pop star that constantly tries to outdo herself. She certainly did it this time.

“BBHMM” is definitely the best track from R8 we’ve heard so far (though word on the street is that the album has been scrapped due to poor response to most of the first promotional material and Rihanna’s going back to the drawing board with new producers/writers – not sure how true that is, though!) so I’m glad it got a full-length video. I mean, I’m still a little concerned for what goes on in Rihanna’s brain, given that she came up with this concept herself and directed it, but I’m just gonna go along with it.

Rihanna Adopts Puppy She Found In A Club Bathroom


Rihanna went clubbing at 1Oak in Los Angeles last weekend and she came home with more than a hangover (hyuck hyuck) – she actually adopted a puppy while she was there! Apparently she found the dog in the bathroom randomly, which raises so many questions, but I suppose I’m not meant to understand.

She’s named the dog Pepe, and seems to be all ready to dedicate herself to the job of dog mom, so I guess good for her. I just hope she keeps him, and also that she removes him from the room when she starts blazing.

Rihanna Has A New Boyfriend in Real Madrid Player Karim Benzema

I must say, Rihanna has some weird ass taste in men. From Chris Brown to Leonardo DiCaprio, she doesn’t necessarily make the best choices when it comes to dating. But now she’s got a new man on the scene, Real Madrid player Karim Benzema, and I can’t quite figure out how I feel about that yet.

From Bang Showbiz:

The ‘Diamonds’ singer has been on a string of dates with the Real Madrid soccer player in recent weeks after first meeting at the World Cup tournament last summer and the 27-year-old beauty has reportedly told friends the relationship feels very different to her past romances with the likes of Chris Brown, Drake, and Leonardo DiCaprio, because she got to know him well through calls and texts first.

A source said: “It’s taken a long time for the relationship to get off the ground but she says that’s what makes it so special.

“He’s the first guy she’s actually gotten to know before diving in head first.

“She’s been telling people she’s never experienced anything like this in her life and that she trusts him like her best friend.”

And Rihanna is said to have been “completely swept off her feet” by the French sportsman – who has 16-month-old daughter Melia from a previous relationship – and friends are astonished by her transformation.

A source told LOOK magazine: “Rihanna seems to have undergone a major transformation. She’s gone from saying that she doesn’t believe in monogamy at all, to talking about how she just wants to be with one guy.

“It’s all because of Karim, he’s completely swept her off her feet.”

We know this isn’t complete bullshit given that they have been photographed together, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. I mean, it likely means they’re at least sleeping together, but since when is that a relationship? Especially in Rihanna’s world? (Seriously, just ask Drake.)

I suppose she could do worse, so stay tuned to see how this goes.

Kelly Clarkson Covers Rihanna’s ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’

Y’all know I stan for Rihanna (not actually, but in spirit), but even I have to admit I’ve been a bit underwhelmed by everything we’ve heard from R8 so far. That is, except “Bitch Better Have My Money” which isn’t quite as good as some of her past singles but is still pretty good. And Kelly Clarkson apparently agrees with me, as she chose to cover “BBHMM” while in BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge yesterday.

Feast your eyes (ears) on this:

Obviously the song loses a bit of its spark given that you can’t say “bitch” on British radio at 11am, but I do love Kelly and think it’s hilarious and adorable that she decided to do this song. Also, I just had to Google how short Kelly is, because she looks downright miniature in this video. (For reference, she’s 5’3″!)

Rihanna “Doesn’t Give A Dick” About Leonardo DiCaprio

rihanna v magazine

Rihanna is getting ready to release her new album, R8, at SOME point – God only knows when, since even though she’s released three singles from it already, there’s not a release date in sight. But she’s hitting the promo trail pretty hardcore leading up to it, and her latest interview is with V Magazine, in which she goes neon, gets her ass out and tells us all that she doesn’t give two shits about rumours that she’s hooking up with Leonardo DiCaprio, among other things.

On her relationship with Leo staying private: “Do I even give a dick about that anymore?”

On responding to people who say she’s taken time off: “I didn’t actually take time off. The past two years are the hardest I’ve ever worked. I’ve been working on two albums, an animated film, shooting for multiple magazines, designing for Puma and Stance [socks], a new line of fragrances, a summer tour, I launched my first annual Diamond Ball at the end of last year, and I’ve also been developing several projects to be revealed in the near future.”

R8: “Dude, I’m in love with my interludes. This one called ‘James,’ joint is on constant repeat. [The album is] soulful and aggressive, whether it’s lyrically, musically, or just the tone of my voice.”

“The thing that made me fall in love with [‘FourFiveSeconds’] is the juxtaposition of the music and the lyrics,” she told V. “When you read the lyrics it’s a completely different song than what you are hearing. The music is easygoing, but the lyrical content is very loud and in your face. In performing this, the key was to make sure the aggression wasn’t lost.”

Yikes. I gotta say, I stan for Ri, but she actually released ‘James’ this week and frankly, I’m not all that impressed:

Like, what? No. I want this to be good, I really do. I refuse to give up on the queen.

Rihanna Went Shopping For 4/20 Snacks

Have you looked at the calendar? Are you aware of what day it is? I left my stoner days behind a long ass time ago, but Rihanna is still going strong with her love for Mary Jane, and she took a few friends for some pre-holiday prep. And by that I mean, they bought a shit ton of snacks to eat while they’ve got the munchies, obviously. They didn’t come out and say that in the video, but I think it’s pretty obvious what’s happening here:

I mean, hey – at least it’s not cocaine, right? I’ve got no idea where the hell they are – it almost looks like a hotel shop, which it could very well be. It also seems like they’ve closed it down while RiRi and her friends are in there, which is the biggest perk of being a celebrity. I don’t need any tourists crowding the narrow ass aisles while I’m trying to get those Oreos on the bottom shelf!

Anyway, happy 4/20, y’all!
