In light of the recent rib injury that Rihanna suffered … that I didn’t even hear about — she’s spoken out to her UK fans, telling them that she has no intention of cancelling shows because of the minor problem.
Reps for Rihanna confirm that the singer did, indeed, suffer a rib injury during a recent tour stop in Switzerland, but she’s recovering nicely and will not deviate from her jam-packed tour schedule. Rihanna spoke to the London-based Evening Standard newspaper regarding her injury:
“Eventually, I had to have it checked out. My ribs are still hurting, but I will be raring to go by London … I’ve had a few injuries, and one thing made another worse.”
Well, good on her. Unless, you know, her injury entailed being, like, pinched on her side by a fan or something, rib injuries are no fucking joke. I had a bruised rib once and it was one of the most painful experiences of my life. I’d rather go through childbirth twice over than have any rib-damage. On the real.
Congrats to Rihanna for not succumbing to the minor ailments that other touring performers sometimes do. You’ve proved it before and this only perpetuates the idea — you’re one strong lady!
Speedy recoveries, girl!

Rihanna was photographed during one of her concert stops looking fabulous — with full-frontal camel toe making a cameo appearance.
As far as I’m concerned, Rihanna’s got one of the hottest female bodies out there, but there’s nothing — I repeat, nothing — attractive about sporting camel toe.
You’re not chub in the least, doll, but maybe you can fit a better-fitting bodysuit next time. Unless, you know, you’re like a lot of people out there who totally dig The Cam.

Today’s a pretty big news day for people like us, kind of. CoCo O’Brien signed a new deal with, of all stations, TBS, the Weinsteins had a “secret weekend meeting” that resulted in a $600 million dollar bid for Miramax, and Jim Carrey wants us all to know that he has his shit together. But there’s something much more important than all of that, you guys. My really awesome friend Blaire pointed me to something far more awesome (and NSFW) than all of that. It’s a video of some freakin’ amazing young man wearing his sisters clothes and singing and dancing to Rihanna’s “Rude Boy”.
I know that it’s only, what? April? There’s probably still snow on the ground in some parts of the country. I don’t know, I’m not a meteorologist. Point is: I think that we’ve already found the Summer 2010 anthem. I’m going to call it now. So what if this song came out like, two months ago? Rude Boy is a forever-jam.

Rihanna’s new man, LA Dodger Matt Kemp, seems like a pretty decent guy. He’s no John Mayer, anyway. Matt recently sat down for an interview with FoxSports where he was supposed to be chatting all about baseball, but of course the subject quickly turned to his new lady. Matt definitely acknowledged that he’s been hanging out with RihRih, but like a true gentleman, he didn’t get in to the details.
Hartman: Did you buy [Rihanna] a diamond necklace?
Kemp: (laughter) Come on, guys. Y’all are killing me, man.
Myers: It’s his business … [but] Are you guys dating? Can you clarify that?
Kemp: That’s just a good friend of mine.
Myers: Oh, OK.
Kemp: A very very good friend of mine. And we enjoy hanging out with each other and we’re just having fun.
Hartman: Now is she a baseball fan or…As friends what kind of common interests do you have?
Kemp: She’s a great person that loves to watch basketball. She likes basketball.
Hartman: And you’re a basketball guy, we know that…So you go to games together? You go to Laker games and stuff like that?
Kemp: Yeah, I’ve been to a couple games.
Myers: How did you two meet?
Kemp: How did we meet? (laughter) I thought we were talking about baseball, guys.
Myers: Well, we can. Now Matt you have to be realistic. Look at Lamar Odom. If you’re gonna date somebody who is as attractive, talented, and widely recognized…
Hartman: She’s an amazing girl.
Myers: …That comes with the territory. You know what it’s like being a celebrity in the baseball sense, so this is magnified. Are you ready for all that?
Kemp: Hey, it is what it is. If that’s what it comes with, that’s what it comes with. I’m just gonna continue to keep trying to hit home runs and help my team get to the World Series.
Maybe he’s not the Rude Boy she’s looking for (how freakin’ much do you guys love that song, by the way?), but at least he seems like a decent dude who respects her. That’s the very least that any woman can ask for and I’m not patting the dude on the back for not being a creep, but hey! This is a great turnaround after the whole Chris Brown thing, huh?

You know who needs to disappear? Chris Brown. That fool just cannot help himself. He’s still talking about how the whole “beating up Rihanna” thing was really hard on his reputation and that he’s actually a really nice guy. This morning he did that whole routine for the Mojo in the Morning radio show and he attempted to keep his shit relevant by relating himself to another bro we all hate right now, Tiger Woods.
“I think it’s cool man, I think people always deserve a second chance, and I know if my fans give me a second chance and people give me a second chance..whatever his personal life is and I think this goes for me and him; his personal life is his personal life – like nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on somebody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them—like they might be a fan, or might support what they’re doing but like if he plays golf, like that’s his sport, that’s his hobby, that’s his love, that’s what people love him for. They don’t love him for the other stuff that they talking bout. I think, even with me, like I do music, I sing songs, like I’m an entertainer, I’m a performer, but people make mistakes, I think people have to realize that everybody’s human, and the good thing is if you learn from your mistakes, then, then that’s a part of life, and I think that’s a part of living and learning from mistakes and becoming a better person, and growing from situations, so my hat is off to him—I support him, I hope he gets back on the field and does his thing, cause he is the best at it.”
Me me me me me. Jesus Christ. This guy’s head is so far up his own rectum that he doesn’t even realize what a self-involved moron he sounds like. He needs to be locked away in a closet until he gets the heck over himself. True.

There’s an 18 second preview out of Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” video and it looks really good. There’s kind of a 90s theme going on with the hair, make up and black-and-white background. And also, there’s a zebra with balloons tied to it’s head. And the song is one of the best of her new album. Thank goodness she did something about that hair.
