Rihanna got gifted with this dick bag – yes, a literal bag with a dick design on it – from Stella McCartney earlier this week, so of course she’s been taking it with her everywhere to pose with it and terrorize the masses. This is a grown woman doing this, by the way – I just want us all to remember that. I mean, I know it’s Rihanna and therefore we should all lower our expectations of maturity and decency – and I say that as someone who loves me some RiRi – but this is just a mess. She’s even going for the Miley Cyrus tongue move! (RIP.)
Not much else to report about this one, really. Rihanna walked around posing with this thing all day. That’s the type of shit you would do with your friends, NOT in front of paparazzi and a ton of friends. Then again, I guess that just makes her ~carefree~, right? And on a side note, what’s with Stella even making this bag? Corny as shit, and I usually like her stuff.

Rihanna just debuted her new fall collection for UK retailer River Island, and it’s as hideous as ever. This is the third range she’s done for the store and it’s as bad as all the rest, full of half-tops, camoflauge, bodycon dresses and other items of “clothing”, if you want to call them that. Because nothing says autumn like a bare midriff and a visible thong.
Despite being an absolute mess, of course this shit is selling like hotcakes and hundreds of fans turned out on Tuesday – as well as Rihanna herself, complete with blue lipstick and the mullet/rat tail hairdo she’s got going these days – to check it out. A lot of it is already sold out online! People will buy anything, I swear.

Noel Gallagher is a misanthrope of the highest order, and that’s what makes him hilarious. He’s like Oscar the Grouch in human form – he hates everything and everyone and that’s all there is to it. So, of course he had to spout off in an interview with GQ (which he probably hated doing) about how much he hates people who live the rock star lifestyle and have big entourages… like Rihanna, for instance.
“I don’t do rock star stuff. I don’t wear sunglasses all the time – I tend to wear them when it’s sunny. I don’t have an entourage, and when I do it’s pathetic. Never more than two people. I was at a festival in Norway and Rihanna’s just arrived with a hundred people. Fucking small army.
And I had to go into this room, which was all just racks of clothing and stuff that designers and punters had brought to give to Rihanna. And they all had these cards in front of them, saying: ‘Dear Rihanna, we are such huge fans, please accept this $90,000 handbag from whoever and whoever’. And I’m reading all these cards as I’m waiting to go in… so I went back to my dressing room and got the little bowl of Cadbury’s Sensations and left it there on her table with a card saying ‘Dear Rihanna, please accept these chocolates on behalf of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’. And she took them. She fucking took them.”
Uh… how are you going to be mad that Rihanna took free chocolate? Who would turn it down? That’s not being a rockstar, that’s being a human being with good taste. Especially Cadbury’s Sensations! Are you kidding me? Some of the best chocolate in the world. Also, Noel Gallagher needs to chill out.

Though summer’s technically not over, I think it’s time to take a look back at everything that happened these summer months. There was a LOT. What do you think was the most shocking? The most WTF? The best fashion moment? Let’s vote!
In case you need a refresher, here are some links to these stories: (more…)

Rihanna is always changing her look so as to stay at the ~forefront of fashion~, and her hair is one thing that has gone through a million and one changes over the past couple of years alone. From a short pixie cut to long, straight locks, she’s tried pretty much everything, it seemed… until now. That’s right, Rihanna’s got a jheri curl. How’s THAT for fierce?
After uploading the photo to Instagram, fans started comparing her to Whitney Houston, Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes (whut?) and Jennifer Beals. HAHA! People are so weird. Here’s what accompanied the photo:
“Still tryna get used to my hurr, so I threw on some #redlipstick #RIRIWoo
Rihanna, I’m so disappointed. I thought grey was the new black? What happened there? I like curls myself so I’m not totally put off by this, despite the fact that however she’s styled it makes it look like a mullet.

Remember when Rihanna sued Topshop’s parent company, Arcadia Group Brands Ltd, for $5 million for using her image on some of their products without permission between 2011 – 2012? Hilariously, she later asked for free stuff from the company, apparently, but that’s neither here nor there. The latest is that she won the lawsuit – hurray!
From Digital Spy:
Topshop’s lawyers had claimed the 25-year-old was making an unjustifiable bid to establish a “free-standing image right” over use of her picture in the UK.
In a hearing at London’s High Court today (July 31), Mr Justice Birss ruled that while there is “no such thing as a general right by a famous person to control the reproduction of their image” and “the mere sale by a trader of a T-shirt bearing an image of a famous person is not an act of passing off”, he considered Topshop to be at fault in this case.
No word on how much money she got for the inconvenience or whether they had to pony up the full $5 mil. That’ll teach you to use someone’s image without her permission, I guess.
