4Let Me Guess—Rihanna Was Going for ‘Demure’ in This Dress, I’ll Bet

This is what Rihanna wore to her perfume launch for “Nude,” which was held at Macy’s over the last few days. If you guys didn’t already know, and the previous statement didn’t give it away all that much, Rihanna “created” a new perfume called “Nude,” and it launched. Whee.

About the scent, which includes hints of pear, Gardenia petals, jasmine Sambac and “numerous other feminine hues,” Rihanna had this to say:

“My third fragrance, Nude, is subtle but it is also substantial – it is a fragrance you will want to wear with nothing else. I cannot get enough of this.”

Well har de har de hur duh bur. “It is a fragrance you will want to wear with nothing else” and “I cannot get enough of this”, clearly meaning she walks around naked all the time in this perfume and hangs all over Chris Brown, just like she hangs all over Chris Brown when she’s clothed.

Any questions? No? Then yes. Let’s assume that Rihanna was definitely going for ‘demure’ in the above dress—’demure’ and ‘classy’ and ‘timeless’, but the only thing she succeeded in (despite the fact that she looks pretty) is convincing us that she’s neither ‘demure’ nor ‘classy’ nor ‘timeless’. Unless you mean the complete opposite of all those three things and then yes, girl’s got this shit on lockdown.

17Nobody Likes Rihanna Anymore

This story could be about a lot of things, but it’s not. It’s not about her fans, because her new album is number one on the charts right now. It’s not about dudes, because Chris Brown is obviously on that (more on that in a bit). It’s not her family, because they’re just psyched that she’s back with Chris. No, it’s more about everyone who works with her. Everyone who works with Rihanna doesn’t like her anymore.

Here’s what’s been happening:

“She’s always been unpredictable, but it’s worse than ever,” says the source, adding that “more than one” person who works in her camp is looking for a job away from the Barbadian beauty.

The insider cites Rihanna’s inability “to keep meetings, even ones she’s rescheduled, [and] be on time … to anything.”

“She’ll commit to something, and show up two hours late,” says one agitated staffer.

A second source says “the Chris Brown situation” has aggravated Rihanna’s behavior. “She puts her family and [Brown] above everything else,” and “it really can affect relationships and commitments, and make her and everyone else look bad. People are fed up.”

Rihanna lived up to her recent rep on the last leg of her “777” tour in her concert at Webster Hall last Tuesday, by going on stage approximately an hour and a half after schedule. At her record release party for “Unapologetic” at the 40/40 Club that same evening, the show was set to begin around 11 p.m., but RiRi arrived close to 2 a.m.

“She committed to do the carpet, but went straight to a private room with her family to eat,” says a source, adding that Rihanna missed her mentor Jay-Z, who is a partner in the nightclub. Hova had a drink with music execs, and left 45 minutes before the tardy temptress arrived. Jay left his perch in the VIP section prior to the end of the concert to make sure he’d be able to greet Rihanna (who is managed by his company Roc Nation) after the show, however.

So yeah, things don’t seem to be looking too great for her professionally. I’m not saying that she’ll get dropped or anything – remember that thing about her number one album? – it’s just not an awesome development.

And speaking of developments that are not awesome, here’s a photo that Rihanna put on Instagram last night:

12So Here’s This Picture That Rihanna Tweeted Last Night

A photo of Chris Brown

Yeah, that’s it. Rihanna took this photo of Chris Brown with his stupid underwear hanging out, then she posted it on Twitter with the tag #BartObsessed.

So that’s it, I guess. It’s officially on. And Chris Brown is obsessed with Bart Simpson, which just makes me feel this weird kind of loathing for him that I haven’t quite felt before. Like, yeah, he’s an abusive asshole who is constantly doing or saying something stupid, but now he’s all that and also a guy who travels around with a blanket like that. Does that make anyone else kind of inexplicably alarmed? Anyone?

3Rihanna Had A Very Happy Thanksgiving with Chris Brown

A photo of Rihanna and Chris Brown

From Us Weekly:

Rihanna is giving thanks to Chris Brown.

Despite traveling to seven countries in seven days for her over-the-top 777 tour– which wrapped in NYC on Tuesday Nov. 20 — the Barbados-born pop star wasn’t content to stay in one place for the American holiday.

“All alone in my big ole jet!!! See u soon lover,” the “Diamonds” singer, 24,tweeted Wednesday beneath a shot in which she sits alone on a private plane. Her destination: Berlin, Germany, where on-and-off beau Brown, 23, had a Thursday concert for his Carpe Diem tour.

Indeed, as Thanksgiving arrived in the U.S., Rihanna tweeted, “#Berlin #CarpeDiem.” When Us Weekly’s Ian Drew, who was among the journalists traveling with Rihanna via chartered 777 jet on the tour, asked Rihanna about her holiday plans, she replied with a smile that she was planning a “quiet” meal with “friends.”

She and Brown were photographed at Berlin’s Adagio nightclub following his show.

Gross, but, obviously predictable. I know we’ve heard countless stories about them getting back together, but it’s still kind of weird when they’re this open about it. Also weird: the thought that someone could be thankful for a jackass like Chris Brown.
