Young celebrities are richer than ever

Forbes released their annual list of the highest earning celebrities under the age of 30 this week, and perhaps unsurprisingly, they’re mostly all pop stars. They base the list off of their Celebrity 100 list and research they gathered to put that one together, so without further ado, prepare to cry yourself to sleep over your stack of student loans and leftover Thanksgiving food tonight as you realize just how much money these young people have and how much you (we) don’t:

1. Justin Bieber, age 20, $80 million
2. One Direction, average age 21, $75 million
3. Taylor Swift, age 24, $64 million
4. Bruno Mars, age 29, $60 million
5. Rihanna, age 26, $48 million
6. Miley Cyrus, age 21, $36 million
7. Jennifer Lawrence, age 24, $34 million
8. Lady Gaga, age 28, $33 million
9. Avicii, age 25, $28 million
10. Skrillex, age 26, $18 million

Please tell me how on God’s green earth SKRILLEX made $18 million. Like, how is that just? How is it even possible? My mind is blown. Avicii is another surprise. I know people were nuts about ‘Wake Me Up’ and ‘Hey, Brother’… but $28 million worth of crazy? I mean, damn.

Rihanna could end up like John Lennon, says a judge

Rihanna is living in New York now (WHY HAVEN’T I SEEN HER?!), but things aren’t all honky dory in the Big Apple, because she’s apparently got a crazy ass stalker who could kill her just like Mark David Chapman killed John Lennon if this situation keeps going.

From The Mirror:

New York City judge Orlando Marrazzo said: “He appears to be a ticking time bomb who is wholly fixated on [Rihanna], and poses a direct threat of serious physical harm or death to her and anyone around her.”

He also ruled that the alleged stalker was unfit to stand trial and he ordered that the accused should be committed to a psychiatric hospital in Staten Island, New York.

However, Mr McGlynn has filed a petition seeking release from the psychiatric institute.

The court ordered that the man must stay away from the ‘Diamonds’ hitmaker’s home in Manhattan and the police have been directed that they can arrest him if he is found near the singer’s property.

The accused – who was arrested in July this year on alleged stalking offences – has also been banned from contacting the 26-year-old singer by telephone, mail or computer.

The 54-year-old homeless man was arrested after reportedly writing a series of notes to the singer, which made references to murder and sexual assault.

Seriously, I don’t know if all the millions and millions of dollars and fancy lifestyle is worth this bullshit. Not like crazy people don’t target non-celebrities, as well, but it seems so much more common when you’re in the public eye. Hopefully they can put this guy away – though I’m sure there are plenty of other nutsos ready to stalk where he came from!

Rihanna wants a “big, trimmed d*ck” for Christmas

rihanna

Rihanna must be ready to release some new music soon, as she’s come out of her lengthy hibernation and has started putting herself out there again. It’s good to see, and her new interview with Elle is obscene, hilarious and totally why we love her.

For instance, can you guess what RiRi wants for Christmas? “A big, trimmed dick”, of course. Oh, okay. Here’s more (from Gossip Cop):

Elsewhere in the interview, Rihanna gives further insight into her love life. Asked what has been the “sexiest thing a man has ever said” to her, Rihanna replies, “Any man that tells me what to do is sexy!” And, interestingly, she also says that if she wasn’t a singer right now, she’d be a “wife.” And possibly one with kids, although Rihanna further admits her “worst fear” is “childbirth.”

The Q&A also features Rihanna declining to confess the craziest thing she’s ever done. “That’s still a secret,” she says, further sharing that one of the things that “people misunderstand” about her is that she’s “shy.” That’s not to say that Rihanna isn’t also confident or willing to stand her ground. Asked for her mantra, Rihanna declares, “F*ck bitches, get money!”

Ha. More photos from the shoot below. Gotta love Rihanna.

Rihanna is back on Instagram, thank God

rihanna

Rihanna decided to leave Instagram behind about six months ago, after the photo sharing site… well, wouldn’t let her share certain photos that contained some pretty intense nudity. She kept adding the photos back, Instagram kept deleting them and threatened to ban her entire account, so she gave them a big “fuck you” and went on her merry way, posting all her photos to Twitter instead.

However, this past weekend gave us a glorious event: @badgalriri returned to Instagram in fine form, though she did post a lot of weird cartoon drawing things that are kinda pointless. However, we also got these gems:

Rihanna is hot AND charitable

Rihanna has been keeping a low profile lately (WHERE IS THE NEW ALBUM?), but she did step out to the amFAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles this week to honour Tom Ford by presenting him with the Inspiration Award and also wearing one of his Spring 2015 looks on the red carpet. The dress leaves little to the imagination in the boob department, but I think we’re all pretty used to seeing Rihanna’s chest region at this point, so it’s all good. She looked hot as hell!

There was also a high profile auction, the proceeds of which benefit AIDS research. Rihanna spent a whopping $135,000 on a pair of Harry Winston earrings and a picture of Elizabeth Taylor (lol). Weird, but great cause.

Kim Kardashian and Rihanna are the latest hacked celebs with leaked nudes

rihanna

Colour absolutely no one surprised, but more celebrity nude selfies have leaked over the weekend. This time, it looks like Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and Vanessa Hudgens are the big ones to be exposed this time around, but HOW IS THIS NEWS? I mean, Vanessa Hudgens has had more nudes “leak” over the past 5 years than I have fingers to count on. Rihanna has also had nudes out before, and Kim Kardashian shows her tits and ass at every opportunity. She even had a sex tape out, for crying out loud, so how is this even a thing?

The new leaked photos were posted on 4Chan and Reddit, but both sites have been threatened with multi-million dollar lawsuits, so they’ve decided to take a strict stance against them and they have been deleted as soon as they’re uploaded. Still, they’re floating around on Twitter and the like, so if you really want to see Kim’s jugs, just do a quick search and there they’ll be. Or, you know, you can just go to her Instagram page.

Of course I get the fact that this is a big deal because these women didn’t CHOOSE to put these images out there, they were stolen, but for people to be losing their minds over seeing a bit of Rihanna’s nipples is kinda silly because she’ll show you herself, probably, if you’re nice enough to ask.

Rihanna doesn’t get to perform for the NFL because Ray Rice knocked his girlfriend out

rihanna

I think it’s pretty safe to say that Ray Rice is a disgusting human being. Any man – rather, any human being – that can physically harm a person they purport to love in such a violent and aggressive way can’t be anything but. And while there is much controversy over how much the NFL turned their heads for as long as they could or the fact that the woman in question, then Rice’s fiancée and now his wife, supports him wholeheartedly and believes Rice is being bullied for his actions, here’s someone who actually has been penalized: Rihanna.

You see, Rihanna was due to perform at the Steelers/Ravens game last night, but the NFL cancelled the appearance last minute. Why, you ask? Well, because Rihanna was the victim of assault by her then-boyfriend Chris Brown, so the organization thought it sent the wrong message to viewers. You know, seeing a woman who was once battered might be a little too close to home and remind people of Rice’s crime.

From TMZ:

The opening features Rihanna performing a version of her hit “Run This Town” — while Don Cheadle introduces the teams and dramatically asks who will “run this town” when the game is over.

But with the Ray Rice scandal in full swing, it’s clear CBS didn’t want to feature another celebrity who was involved in a high-profile domestic violence incident.

CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus says, “We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we needed to have the appropriate tone coverage.”

I’ve been trying to understand this, and I just can’t. After all, Rihanna was not a perpetrator of violence, she was the victim of it. Frankly, I doubt she cares either way about performing at a football game, but the point is this: why is Rihanna being punished because she was a victim? Shouldn’t she be a beacon of someone who got out (albeit after a lengthy period of time) and who is still strong, independent and successful? Why are we trying to shush her?

I suppose it makes people uncomfortable to think about domestic violence, so with the Ray Rice situation in full swing, Rihanna will remind everyone of the seriousness of the situation. Can’t have a bunch of macho football fans upset while they’re trying to pound some brewskis and watch the game, I suppose.

Yes, insert eye roll here.
