This one really needs no introduction – it’s Rihanna‘s ‘What Now’ video. She’s locked in a room and writhes around quite a lot like a mental patient, but I’m not sure it’s quite as “eerie” as she might have liked it to be. Still, good song and love me some Rihanna.
What do you think of the new video?

Rihanna and Drake allegedly went to a strip club in Houston and you won’t believe how much money they spent. Oh, they made it rain. They made it pour with thunder and lightening and all kinds of shit. They needed to bring umbrella(ellas ellas ellas).
$17,000. That’s what reports are saying. Rihanna and Drake spent $17,000 at a strip club.
Here’s the report from E! News, via Daily News:
The former rumored couple hung out a V Live Gentlemen’s Club in Houston, Texas Wednesday into the wee hours of the night, E! News reported.
After Rihanna, 25, showed up at Drake’s concert at the Toyota Center the “We Found Love “singer and the 26-year-old rapper allegedly got cozy later at the club and together spent more than $17,000.
The “Take Care” pair “sat very close to each other and were even dressed alike,” Jhonni Blaze, an employee who danced for them told E!

Rihanna‘s been a little quiet lately, don’t you think? Well, that’ll be because she was busy grinding on her grandpa (gag – check her Instagram!) in Barbados for his birthday and also, erm, working on the video for her latest single, ‘What Now’. The full video won’t be out until tomorrow, but here’s a behind-the-scenes look to tide you over, since I know you can’t wait:
I’m not sure about the hillbilly chic look she’s trying to rock. In fact, I absolutely hate it, but I guess you can’t say she’s not adventurous. I do love the song, and Rihanna has promised that the vid will be “eerie” and “demented”, which… LOL, okay. What do you think?

You have to hand it to Rihanna for her consistency, if nothing else. Homegirl just loves being naked. She also loves to get people talking, and she’s hoping to do it again with her new shoot for GQ, in which she appears naked… with real live snakes! Mon dieu!
The last thing I want is a snake around my neck, dead or alive, that’s for sure, but Rihanna probably thinks it makes her edgier, so let’s just all try and support this bullshit. I do think it’s a nice idea for a photo shoot, I suppose – it’s very different, a little Medusa-esque, the weird contacts are cool… Good stuff, right?
I think the most surprising photo shoot we’ll ever see from Rihanna is one in which the girl has clothes on, though. I mean, damn.

Apparently I wasn’t the only one to raise an eyebrow at Rihanna‘s Abu Dhabi mosque photo shoot! While RiRi herself saw no problem posing for umpteen pictures wearing the hijab that’s mandatory for female visitors, others did and she was apparently asked to leave right after. Turns out she wasn’t even in a public area of the mosque – she was in a place that’s prohibited to visitors. Disrespect all around!
Authorities asked Rihanna to leave the site of a mosque in Abu Dhabi after she posted photographs of herself posing in areas of the mosque that are off-limit to visitors on Saturday. The Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center issued a statement on Sunday saying that while it’s open to visitors of all faiths and allows pictures, the superstar’s photos were inappropriate, violated the “sanctity” of the mosque and disrespected the religious nature of the location, reports Gulf News.
The photos, which depicted the singer posing in front of the mosque in an all-black hooded outfit, were posted to her Instagram account. Rihanna commented on the picture of her looking at a group of women wearing head scarves and full body garments, “Bitch stole my look.” Another picture shows her lounging in the sun with the comment “#NoTanLines.”
Oh dear. Of course, Rihanna will never learn and won’t have cared, anyway. She’s already over in Greece doing photo shoots. Nothing offensive here besides her narcissism.

Rihanna is still in the midst of her Diamonds world tour, and her latest jaunt has taken her to Abu Dhabi. In case you don’t know much about Abu Dhabi, it’s the capital and second largest city in the United Arab Emirates and has a very largely Muslim population (and a lot of non-Muslim expats). Rihanna, completely oblivious to the concept of cultural appropriation (see: here), decided it’d be a great idea to take off her thong and nipple covers and put on a hijab to have a fashion shoot at the Shaikh Zayed Mosque this weekend, which…. WHY? Yes, it’s required for female visitors to the Mosque – which offers daily tours to visitors – to cover their heads. It’s respectful to locals to abide by their customs, but to stage a fashion shoot like you’re the new face of Islamic culture? SMH SMH SMH.
It’s not at all surprising that Rihanna sees no problem in turning something with such cultural and religious significance to those who ACTUALLY OBSERVE IT into a lighthearted ~fashion~ thing (she literally captioned one of her photos with “Fashion killaz in Abu Dhabi”), but it’s mindblowing that no one in her entourage thought, you know, maybe this isn’t so respectful? Perhaps the cloud of weed smoke also clouded their judgment.
Y’all know I love me some RiRi, but I cannot abide this fuckery.
