Rihanna Interview Part 2

Good Morning America gets props for getting absolutely the most mileage out of a celebrity interview.  Ever.

Here’s part two of the Rihanna interview that aired this morning.  The singer shares more of the details of what actually happened, such as witnessing Chris Brown’s soulless, blacked out eyes as he beat her — on the night of the Grammys.  The entire, uninterrupted interview will air tonight on 20/20.

Rihanna: Eff Love

You know, I wasn’t sure how I felt about Rihanna after she went back to Chris Brown post-beating.  After watching the first clip of her Good Morning America interview as it aired this morning, I just have a lot of respect for her.  I found her to be absolutely riveting to watch and she’s so clear on what she needs to look at.  If you’re being abused, don’t use “love” as the guiding force for what needs to change.  Love is so absolutely blind and has led so many of us down the wrong path.  It’s not easy to turn your back on love, but when it comes to abuse, it’s absolutely necessary.

Anyway, I’m excited to see more on tomorrow’s GMA as well as 20/20.  Stay strong, Rihanna!

Rihanna Says Domestic Violence Can “Happen to Anyone”


Rihanna’s new album comes out in less than a month, so it’s obviously time to start talking about domestic violence. Sigh. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m glad she’s talking, I just wish it didn’t have to have the stench of a PR stunt surrounding it.

Rihanna did an interview with Diane Sawyer, to air on Good Morning America on Thursday and Friday, and you better believe ABC is going to be leaking little quotes from it about every 12 hours up until that time.

“This happened to me … it can happen to anyone,” she told Diane in the interview. The 21-year-old also referred to Chris Brown as “definitely my first big love.”

I don’t even blame Rihanna for this — she is a very young girl dealing with some very big issues. She’s in no position to navigate these waters, and she’s depending on her team for guidance. I think it’s in really poor taste for her management to start dragging her around the talk show circuit using the fact that she was the victim of domestic violence to sell albums. Hopefully at least this publicity will help her send a positive message to women everywhere, and maybe help another woman to seek help if she’s in a similar situation.

Rihanna’s New Song Cures a Nation of Insomniacs

The wait might be ova, but I’d be fine if it wasn’t.  Rihanna’s new single “Russian Roulette” dropped — take a listen.

It’s no coincidence that this song is titled after a game that’s all about potentially shooting yourself.  It’s that boring.  Like, you don’t want to be listening to this song if you are driving because you could end up on someone’s lawn Billy Joel style before you know it.  It’ll put you to sleep …a melodic Unisom, if you will.

Overdramatizing?  Probably.  And I know it’s not cool to criticize Rihanna, but why do all her songs sound the same?

The Wait Is Ova, and So Is Rihanna’s Participation in the Hollywood Spelling Bee


Ri-Ri’s ass would get slammed in a spelling bee by Fergie. That bitch can spelling anything, even hard words like “glamorous,” and Rihanna can’t even spell “over.” That’s probably because she got hit in the head earlier this year. Rihanna took to her brand-new Twitter to announce her new album’s release date, stating “The Wait Is Ova. Nov 23 09.”

Glad you’re back on your feet, kiddo, and I’m looking forward to the album.

It’s Not Polite to Point

Rihanna in Paris, Showing Off Her Eiffel Towers

I’m getting pretty tired of seeing Rihanna’s nipples.

I can understand that sometimes things that look opaque turn out to be sheer under bright lights. That happens. But she seems to have gotten into the regular habit of wearing sheer stuff with no bra on underneath. She knows she’s going to be photographed with bright flashes, but  she just doesn’t care to cover up her milk makers. Am I the only one who thinks that’s a little trashy?

Or am I just being prudish and a little visible areola  in the name of a bra-line free silhouette elegant and sexy?

A lot of sites are also reporting that this photo (also below) shows her vajayjay, but I don’t see a split, so I’m hoping it’s just nude colored undies. (I really loathe the fact that I just zoomed in on a picture of another woman’s crotch to see if it really shows her vagina.)

Love It Or Leave It?


What do you think of Rihanna as a blonde as she was seen last night on the streets of New York?  I actually like it!  While you’re at it, take a look at the close-up of her boots.  Are those Lindsay Lohan boots or what?
