Rihanna Lands Third ‘Vogue’ Cover In Four Years

Rihanna is the cover girl for Vogue‘s March 2014 issue, her third cover spot for the mag in four years. This one touts the line, “How The Unstoppable Pop Diva Became A Full-On Fashion Force.” Thing is, she’s rocking a decidedly basic look, with jeans and a sheer top.

RiRi’s still rocking the cropped hair she flaunted on the November 2012 cover, but she’s ditched that cover’s glamorous style. Check out a high quality version of the cover below. More »

Ladies Who Duet: 23 All-Female Songs For A Sapphic Valentine’s Day

Girls, Girls, Girls!
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, not to mention Shakira and Rihanna‘s touchy-feely “Can’t Remember To Forget You” bed romp still fresh on our minds, we couldn’t help but think back to some of the great female pop pair-ups over the years. After all, we love ladies, and we love ladies who love to, er, duet with other ladies.

For this particular roundup, we scoured the most recent crop of diva collabs (Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu, Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera), went a tiny bit old school (Beyonce and Shakira, Gaga and Bey), went really old school (Salt N Pepa and En Vogue, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston) and then threw in some straight-up classic female pairings (Donna Summer and Barbra Streisand, Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin). To round things out, we included a couple of tracks from female duos and a pair of separate songs by the same two female pop forces — one a rapstress-turned-actress, the other a tried and true Harajuku Girl enthusiast.

Head below and add a little sugar and spice to your life by hitting play on our special No Boys Allowed Valentine’s Day playlist! More »

Rihanna Almost Went Bankrupt In 2009: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: Rihanna should have mountains of money, right? Well, for a while there in 2009 RiRi was on struggle street. In fact, she nearly went bankrupt due to “gross mismanagement” by her accountant. [TMZ]

:: The Grammys really put a few noses out of joint when they cut off Nine Inch Nails and Queens Of The Stone Age mid-song. Trent Reznor already put them on blast and Josh Homme just added his two cents at a recent concert. [NME]

:: Nas is developing a half-hour TV series for Xbox called Street Dreams. It’s a semi-autobiographical show set in the ’90s that documents the life of a struggling rapper in New York City. Sounds good! [Vulture]

:: Well, this is just rude. A group of Michael Jackson fans that sued Dr. Conrad Murray for emotional distress were awarded a measly $1.36 each. That’s not even enough to download “Man In The Mirror”! [Billboard]

Shakira And Rihanna’s “Can’t Remember To Forget You” Gets A Fedde Le Grand Remix: Listen

Shakira‘s “Can’t Remember To Forget You” hasn’t quite turned out to be the chart-conquering blockbuster fans hoped for (although number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 is nothing to cry about) but the eye-popping video has been a runaway success — 100 million views and counting — and new remixes promise months of club domination on the horizon.

The best EDM overhaul of the sultry Rihanna duet belongs to Fedde Le Grande, the Dutch DJ behind UK number one hit “Put Your Hands Up For Detroit”. His electro-house makeover turns the song into perfect club fodder with the dueling divas singing about their romantic woes over bone-rattling beats. This does for “Can’t Remember” what Freemasons did for “Beautiful Liar”. Listen after the jump. More »

Foxes Performs An Acoustic Cover “Hold On We’re Going Home” And “The Monster”: Listen

We all know Foxes sounds amazing singing over soaring synths on songs like “Clarity” and “Youth” but the talented Brit sounds equally great with only a piano to keep her company. Need proof? Look no further than the beautiful acoustic mash-up of Drake‘s “Hold On We’re Going Home” and Eminem and Rihanna‘s “The Monster”.

Performed on Dermot O’Leary’s BBC Radio 2 show, the songs come together surprisingly well — particularly when you consider that one is a love song and the other documents a battle with personal demons. However, in the “Let Go For Tonight” diva’s capable hands they both just sound achingly sad and pretty. Listen to Foxes at full flight after the jump. More »

Shakira And Rihanna Sizzle In Sexy “Can’t Remember To Forget You” Video: Watch

Kissing In The Moonlight
Shakira and Rihanna bring sexy back in their sizzling “Can’t Remember To Forget You” video. I guessed this would be a steamy affair from yesterday’s (January 29) preview but the finished product truly boggles the mind.
