Rihanna Rocked Pasties And A Tom Ford Gown, While Miley Cyrus Opted For A Sheer Top At The AmfAR Gala

Miley Cyrus wore as little as possible on the amfAR Gala red carpet last night (october 29) and still got completely upstaged by Rihanna. She proved that nipple pasties and side-splits can be elegant and sophisticated when teamed with a Tom Ford gown. Both divas were both in attendance to pay tribute to the fashion designer, who was given the event’s Inspiration award.

“Over the past 20 years, Tom Ford has been honored with every major fashion award there is,” RiRi told the star-stuffed crowd at the charity event. “Tonight, we honor him both for his incredible talent and for what he stands for. We honor him for doing good while making us look good.” The “Stay” hitmaker also raised money for the event by dropping $100,000 on a photo of Elizabeth Taylor. (She also bought some earrings for the modest price of $35,000). See another pic of Rih’s stunning gown after the jump. More »

See What May Be Rihanna’s Eighth Album Title, Tracklist And Release Date

Lost Files?

Rihanna‘s eighth album may arrive next month, if a leaked photo is to be believed.

Here’s the story: DJ Envy, co-host of Power 105′s The Breakfast Club, found what appears to be an official document from Rihanna’s label RocNation, detailing her new album. The title? Lost Files. The release date? November 25. The standard edition would feature 14 songs and appearances by Nicki Minaj, Drake, Big Sean and Eminem.

Other artists have talked about their involvement in Rihanna’s eighth album, the follow-up to 2012′s Unapologetic. DJ Mustard was the first to do so, back in January. As of late, though, the release still appeared to be a work in progress. Rihanna reunited with songwriter Ester Dean in the studio. Meanwhile, Charli XCX said that she was writing for the enduring pop star, too.

The most promising sign that the leaked photo is authentic is its mention of “Barz,” featuring Minaj. Last spring on social media, Rihanna teased the woeful lyrics: “Your silver tongue is full of lies, with tricks and thrills and Bambi eyes.” And after a thorough investigation, the Navy concluded that either The Pink Print star or Keri Hilson was involved.

‘The Voice’: Alessandra Castronovo And Joe Kirk Do Battle With Rihanna’s “Stay”

The Battle Round of The Voice continued on Tuesday, and the coaches really started to fall into their grooves. Gwen Stefani complimented all.the.things, and was filled with regret letting any contestant go. Blake Shelton basically called something from each battle “The most/best/perfect-est [FILL IN THE BLANK] that we’ve ever seen on this show!” Adam Levine celebrated the tremendous growth of just about everyone in such a short period of time (lives changed, people) and Pharrell Williams was all chill, all the time.

It would be remiss not to point out that Pharrell also managed to wear a sweater straight from The Cosby Show (Theo’s, though, not Bill’s) and looked super cool doing it. For this, he is the true winner of the Battles. More »

Iggy Azalea Fires Back At Snoop Dogg’s Insults On Twitter: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: After Snoop Dogg posted a not-so-nice picture of an Albino woman on his Instagram with the caption, “Iggy Azalea no make up,” the “Fancy” star went to Twitter to slam the rapper. She wrote, “And everytime I’ve spoken to you, you’ve always been nice as hell. I’m disappointed you’d be such an ass for no reason.” [E! News]

:: Courtney Love is always reliable for fun musical drama! She is now claiming that Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan wrote a number of songs about her. When the band’s frontman “stopped writing about me, he stopped having hits.” Whatever you say, Court! [Billboard]

:: There’s some good news for XXL magazine! The publication announced it will not be ending its print edition after all. They plan to release another issue by year’s end. The news comes after Harris Publications sold XXL to digital-based Townsquare Media. [MTV]

:: Not everyone is a fan of Rihanna‘s sexual image, including Mel C. The former Spice Girl told Radio Times the singer needs to have more dignity: “My five-year-old loves Rihanna. But she has no idea what her idol looks like because there’s little footage that I’m happy for her to see. It’s a shame that a talented, successful woman expresses herself in such an overtly sexual way.” [Refinery 29]

:: One Direction member Zayn Malik may be coming to a theater near you! The singer has reportedly been asked to star in a Bollywood film, since he apparently has a huge fanbase in India. [Digital Spy]

Rihanna And Gwen Stefani Tap Charli XCX To Write New Songs

Boom Clap!

Charli XCX plans to write new music for Rihanna and Gwen Stefani as she preps the release of her own sophomore album, Sucker.

Such collaborations, particularly the latter, are rather fitting for the budding pop songwriter behind Icona Pop‘s “I Love It,” Iggy Azalea‘s “Fancy” and her own summer hit “Boom Clap,” off the Fault of Our Stars soundtrack.  Eve‘s 2001 smash “Let Me Blow Ya Mind,” featuring the No Doubt frontwoman and Voice coach, has served as a major inspiration to Charli XCX’s work so far. [It's] my favorite female collaboration that has been released over the past 20 years,” she says to Billboard. More »

:: Law & Order: SVU re-created the infamous Jay Z/Solange elevator fight in this week’s episode (which aired yesterday, October 1) – titled “American Disgrace.” Harsh much? The show previously aired an episode heavily influenced by Rihanna and Chris Brown‘s domestic battle. [MTV News]

:: On the last leg of his “Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour,” Drake threw some humorous shots at his former nemesis Chris Brown. The singer joked that if he had Breezy’s smooth dance moves, then maybe things could’ve worked out with ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Let’s hope this remains a joke. [MTV News]

:: Yesterday, Prince officially joined Facebook for the sole purpose of chatting with fans for a live Q&A. It took him three hours to begin the Q&A, and he only decided to answer one question. Leave it to Prince! [Consequence of Sound]

Reunited & It Feels So Good!

Rihanna’s been spotted in New York City over the last few days in and out of the recording studio, prepping for her pending eighth studio album (or #R8, as the Navy calls it). Her recent session turned into a reunion, as the singer met up with frequent collaborator Ester Dean. More »
