Silly Ploy

The song “Silly Boy” was released on the internet this week with vocals by Lady Gaga and Rihanna.  It gathered a lot of steam when Kanye West linked the track to his blog.

This new tune would be great and an awesome step forward for Rihanna especially, except for one tiny fly in the ointment:  It’s a fake.  Rihanna’s rep confirms to Us  that Riri didn’t record this song.

I can’t wait for Kanye’s ALL CAPS EXPLANATION OF WHAT EXACTLY IS GOING ON!

Rihanna and GaGa Team Up!!!

Check out this new track from Lady GaGa and Rihanna — it’s called “Silly Boy,” and the lyrics would suggest that Rihanna still believes she’s a good girl, and that perhaps Chris Brown blew it for good. Man, I hope so. As far as PR moves go, though, this is a bright one for Rihanna — team up with another hot artist so the heat’s not all on her, and sing about a dude who messed everything up with an awesome girl. Very smart.

Naked Rihanna Pictures Leaked

It’s been kind of quiet on the Chris Brown and Rihanna front as he busily works on getting out of the legal jam he’s in and she works on moving forward with her career.

Though the rumored sex tape hasn’t surfaced yet, naked pictures of Rihanna have finally hit the internet.  She obviously took the pictures of herself which leads to the question of who got access to the pictures?

The uncensored pictures are here and totally NSFW.  Unless perinea are suitable for your workplace in which case these pics are totally okay.

Thanks, Brian!

Rihanna’s Look: Love It or Leave It?

This is the look Rihanna sported while on her way to lunch in Manhattan’s SoHo yesterday. Very very different. Thoughts?

Date Night!

Ha ha ha ha. JK, you guys, JK. But Rihanna was spotted out with Jay-Z at Katsuya last night. No Chris Brown or Rihanna in sight. They’re obviously not dating, though, and I’m glad Rihanna’s spending some time with someone who I think probably has her best interests in mind.

Mostly, though, I’m running these photos for a single, selfish reason: I HAVE to know what Jay-Z’s shirt says. Can anyone figure it out?

Just a Friendly Reminder That Chris Brown Beat the Crap Out of His Girlfriend

JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU KNEW!

Because his lawyer is doing all sorts of shady stuff to try to delay the case and confuse the matter. The LA court has agreed to yet another extension, with the next hearing set for May 28. Meanwhile, Chris’s lawyer is trying to get the case dismissed entirely due to evidence leaks, like the pic of Rihanna’s injuries.

“If Geragos makes an issue of leaked evidence, it’s unlikely the judge will dismiss the case,” says L.A. criminal defense attorney Jeffery Rubenstein, who’s not involved in the case. “It’s not police conduct at issue here, it’s Chris Brown’s.”

EXACTLY!

Hopefully the judge AND the public can keep that in mind. The ONLY issue here is that one person violently assaulted another.

WWMTD?

Well, I can’t believe I’m about to write these words but apparently Mike Tyson is doling out advice regarding domestic violence.  Feel free to take a moment to let that sink in.

And maybe I’m being overcritical, but there’s something about how he calls women “them” during an interview with MTV that doesn’t sit well with me.  Who ever knew a pronoun could sound offensive?

“You can’t abuse them,” he tells MTV. “It’s really sick what you [can] do. She has a space in your heart and you believe you care about her more than anybody in the world.

“Do I think it’s right to beat up a woman? No — hell no,” he adds. “Have I hit a woman before? Hell yeah. Was I wrong? Hell yeah. I’m a product of that environment. Do I regret ever doing that? Hell yeah. Would I do it again? Never.”

He shared his opinion on the Chris Brown/Rihanna debacle as well:

It’s none of my business, but you know what I say about that? I understand the situation. I understand passion with young kids,” Tyson, 42, tells MTV News.

“My personal opinion about that is, he’s just a baby,” adds the former heavyweight champ, who is the subject of a new documentary, Tyson, out Friday. “He’s just a little baby that don’t know how to handle his emotions when it comes to a woman. And he probably hears this and thinks, ‘I know how to handle my emotions’; we all think we do.

“But the fact [is],” Tyson continues, “you look at this person and you might be crazy in love, but we don’t know how to handle those feelings.”

What could have led Brown to beat Rihanna, 21? Tyson blames a “pimp mentality” that is prevalent among young people. “Now you’re a fly guy and a cool guy [you think] … you have to be hard like that,” he says.

Listen, I’m happy anytime a celeb takes a stand against domestic violence.  In some ways, it’s even more meaningful coming out of Mike Tyson’s mouth since he’s had a penchant in the past for punching women in the mouth and has a rap sheet the length of my inseam to prove it.  But why the excuses?  Why does it have to be about “pimp mentality” and youth?  Why can’t it just be totally effing unacceptable?
