Looks like Rihanna finally learned something

rihanna

Y’all know Rihanna is my queen – I love her music (don’t even tell me you won’t still be singing ‘Umbrella’ when you’re in the nursing home), I love her personality, etc. I don’t really love those hand tattoos, but no one’s perfect. What I’m really loving most lately is her new-found (and late-blooming) wisdom. Apparently taking a bit of time out of the spotlight has given her time to reflect on life, and she’s finally realized that she needs to treat herself better and not accepting other people not doing the same. Cough cough CHRIS BROWN cough cough.

From News.com.au:

“The more we respect ourselves the more men will respect us,” she says. “I have both sides to me and I think most women do. We are strong but they are very vulnerable as well.

“For me, I get very fierce and passionate about my career and about my family. But there are also things that make me become a little girl. Like, I love balloons, that definitely really brings out the little girl in me.”

Girllllll, we been tryin’ to tell you this shit since 2009! Better late than never. If it seems rather random that she’d be talking about this, it’s not, really – it was for an interview ahead of the release of the new animated feature Home, for which RiRi voices the lead character, Tip, and does the theme song. Anyway, so glad she’s realized that she needs to love herself more.

She’s even thinking about the future!

Although there are no plans to settle down anytime soon, she has said she’d like to be ‘a wife’ one day. Who would make for the perfect husband? She considers, “Someone who could tolerate my schedule; someone man enough to do that and not get scared because I don’t have a lot of time to offer.”

When she does have spare time, she prefers to keep it low key. “At home I’m pretty boring. I just lay on the couch and watch TV,” she says, although with whom the Barbadian singer is sharing the couch with remains unconfirmed.

I feel like me and Rihanna might be soulmates. Laying on the couch watching TV sounds like the only way I’d want to spend a marriage.

Rihanna’s getting her own documentary

rihanna

You’ve got to hand it to Rihanna. Despite not having done much of anything besides party and take some gorgeous photos for the past few years, she’s managed to maintain her status as one of the biggest celebrities in the world – that’s some staying power. And that status is about to be immortalized on film since RiRi is about to become the subject of her own feature-length documentary by Peter Berg.

From Deadline:

A contemporary take on the 1967 Bob Dylan rock doc Dont Look Back, the film is described as an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon.” Berg, who gave Rihanna her acting start with a role in his movie Battleship, said that he liked the idea of examining “a young artist at the top of her professional field” and that the project will be “much more a character study than a music film.”

Huh. I love me some Rihanna, so I’ll watch this. I’m not sure how I feel about it being a “character study” considering most of what RiRi seems to do is shop and get high, but shit, good for her, I guess.

Will you see it?

Chris Brown: ‘Rihanna will never do better than me’

chris brown

Chris Brown is such a walking bag of dicks that I long ago lost words to describe him any more coherently or intelligently. He just fucking sucks. Funny enough, though, HE doesn’t think he sucks. In fact, he thinks he’s pretty amazing and that any woman should be so lucky to have him. Especially Rihanna! Yep, that’s right. Chris actually claimed during an interview with The Breakfast Club that Rihanna will never do better than him.

Here’s what he said when asked about Kanye West‘s line of “If you leave Mickey, you gon’ end up with Goofy/I imagine that’s what Chris told Karrueche” line in some Big Sean track that I don’t know or care about (not because I don’t love hip hop but because Big Sean is corny as hell).

Anyhooooooo…

“I feel what he meant by it, and I’m not just saying it as an arrogant statement. In any situation, when you look at yourself in a certain light – cocky or not – there’s nowhere else to go. Even with [Rihanna], who else you gonna go to? [...] Who else in this game she gonna go to? Some corny singing rapper? What she do now, I got respect for her and all that, whatever her choice is. But at the time, not to toot my own own, but who hotter than me?”

The curry I ate for dinner is hotter than you, Chris Brown. Literally everything on this planet is hotter than you.

But I mean, come on, maybe Chris is right. How good did Rihanna have it with him? He only beat the shit out of her and refused to apologize or show any remorse about it and instead raged by breaking windows and ripping his shirt off like The Hulk whenever anyone dared to point his violent behavior out to him. I’m sure he was an AWESOME boyfriend!

Also, not to point out the obvious here, but maybe it’s Chris that’s ended up with a Goofy, considering he ended up with a woman who… kinda looks exactly like Rihanna (or is doing her best impersonation). Get out of my face.

Oh, and one more thing – Chris also has thoughts on the whole Tyga/Kylie Jenner situation:

“Whatever decision my man wanna make, I’ma rock with him. I ain’t gonna fight none of his battles, but it’s just like whatever decision you make. We see eye-to-eye on a lot of things, so I feel like I’ll just tell him ‘Aye man, if you was dating some regular weak chick, you wouldn’t be talked about, nobody would care.”

If you want to torture yourself, you can watch/listen to the whole thing here. You can also skip to about the 27 minute mark, where Chris – classy, classy Chris – talks about wanting to get both Rihanna and Karreuche pregnant at the same time.

Rihanna brings her nipples out for fashion

rihanna cover

Rihanna is slowly but surely getting back in the spotlight, and it’s about time. The first part of her campaign seems to be just being seen in public again – she’s been a fixture at pretty much every show this past week at New York Fashion Week. She’s also been appearing on numerous magazine covers, and the latest one, for a publication called AnOther, serves some serious Rihnipple.

The photos are behind the cut, obviously, as they’re NSFW – but enjoy!

Rihanna swims with sharks for Harper’s Bazaar

rihanna harper's bazaar

After taking some well-deserved time off, Rihanna is back at it and ready to make her comeback in 2015. She’s released a mediocre new single (which I sincerely hope is not a reflection of what the album is going to sound like) and is starting to shoot some new magazine covers, including this one for Harper’s Bazaar.

The best part of this shoot is the fact that RiRi got to swim with actual live sharks for it. Seriously, check this shit out:

Get it, RiRi! Love her.

Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney release ‘Four Five Seconds’ video

five four seconds

Honestly, the new Rihanna/Paul McCartney/Kanye West track ‘Four Five Seconds’ is one of the most perplexing single releases in recent history. It’s an absolutely horrendous song with a collaboration that just does NOT fit (and that probably only happened because they thought it would be ~unexpected~ and ~legendary~), no matter what way you slice it. I get that RiRi needs to get back out there, though I don’t think this is the way to do it. I’m not really shocked at Kanye, though – he’s always trying to one-up everyone with some crazy shit (which REALLY worked with 808s and Heartbreaks, but NOT here).

Here’s the video, which was released yesterday:

Ugh, this is AWFUL. What do you think?

Leonardo DiCaprio and Rihanna are a thing now, apparently

leonardo dicaprio rihanna

Leonardo DiCaprio is a total ladies man, and Rihanna is basically everyone’s woman (come on, you know she’s hot), so I suppose it makes sense that these two would hook up. That’s the word on the street, anyway. Apparently they got hot and heavy at a party at the Playboy mansion – at least according to TMZ:

It wasn’t Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday this weekend … but it sure felt like it … he was seen going straight up “Wolf of Wall Street” on Rihanna at the Playboy Mansion.

It’s a good thing for Leo … designer Nikki Erwin had boyfriend/producer Chuck Pacheco — “Alpha Dogs,” “My Sister’s Keeper” — invite him to her star-stacked 30th B-Day at the Playboy Mansion Saturday … and our spies tell TMZ, Cap and RiRi were gettin’ super steamy and even swapping spit.

A friend of Leo’s tells us the kissing didn’t happen … but 2 people who were there say it did. BTW … not that there’s anything wrong with it.

Huh. Well… I guess it’s possible? Hilariously, MediaTakeout took it 80 steps further and claimed that not only did RiRi and Leo kiss, but they’re actually having a baby together!

MediaTakeOut.com told you guys that Leonardo DiCaprio was dating Rihanna . . . and that they rang in the new year together. Some of y’all ain’t believe us. Well now we have controverted proof.

On Saturday night, there was a party at the Playboy mansion. One of the Playmates tweeted out that she saw Rihanna kissing Leo. She quickly deleted it and added that she was at the mansion with “unnamed celebs” after she realized that she might get in trouble for spilling tea.

Anyways, our SAME SNITCH that told us about Leo and Rihanna (before ANYONE ELSE KNEW) told us that Rihanna is DEFINITELY PREGNANT. And that despite her recent “partying” . . . Rihanna STILL PLANS on keeping the baby. We’re STILL not clear yet on who the father is . . . but it now looks like it MIGHT BE LEONARDO DiCAPRIO!!

LOL, yeah, okay. I mean, part of me can’t even see the kiss happening – I don’t think Mountain Man is particularly Rihanna’s taste, but I suppose anything’s possible…

Do you think this happened?
