has been unusually quiet since winding up her Monster tour
. It’s strange because the prolific diva’s annual album is already a year overdue and, with the exception of upcoming LPs from Taylor Swift
and Nicki Minaj
, there’s not a lot of happening in the pop world right now. Maybe her new shoot with the wonderfully-titled Tush
magazine is the first sign that she’s about to relaunch.
The 26-year-old serves up one of her kookiest pictorials yet, channeling Halle Berry‘s X-Men character Storm with a splash of Kerli‘s trademark Baby Spice-on-acid look thrown into the mix. RiRi always delivers the goods visually but she’s been taking things in a darker, more interesting direction lately. Hopefully, that’s a sign of where she’s going musically for R8. Peruse the pics up top. More »

The social media gods are smiling on us again. Since the demise of Rihanna
‘s Instagram account (I miss it each and every day), the world has been a far less sexy place. Even Miley Cyrus
‘ seemingly endless string of semi-nude photo shoots
can’t replace RiRi’s ratchet shenanigans
. Thankfully, she finally put her Twitter to good use and posted some sexy pics.
The Barbadian babe hung out on a yacht today (August 27) and posed in a dress that looks like my grandmother’s old tablecloth. Rihanna then took a snap in a bikini before tweeting about having dinner inside an active volcano. It’s good to see she’s relaxing after winding up her joint-your with Eminem in Detroit over the weekend. See her impromptu photo shoot after the jump. More »
became the latest pop stars
to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
during the sixth and final date of their co-headlining Monster Tour. To cheers from the sold-out, 45,000 crowd at his hometown of Detroit, Eminem accepted mentor Dr. Dre
‘s call and had Rihanna herself dump ice-cold water over his head. Eminem then challenged producer Rick Rubin
, hypeman Mr. Porter
and RiRi herself – though not without some protests from the latter.
“I’m from the islands. I don’t do this ice shit,” Rihanna said. (We know, Rihanna.) “This ice shit doesn’t work for me – wait. That’s a fucking pot!”

At this Sunday’s (August 24) MTV Video Music Awards, Pharrell
will be the one male facing off against female pop forces Beyonce
, Miley Cyrus
, Iggy Azalea
in the Video Of The Year category
. And of course we all know those names today, but who remembers that Panic! At The Disco
once waltzed away from the VMAs with a Video Of The Year moonman? Or what song Green Day
nabbed the award for in 2005? Or what year Britney Spears
emerged victorious in the category?
Ahead of the latest staging of MTV’s annual extravaganza, we decided to flash back through the past decade, all the way back to 2004, to refresh our memories on exactly which artists and songs won the big prize on VMAs night. We then compiled snippets of all the winning clips into one two-and-a-half-minute video, which you can watch above. More »
In case you have yet to realize, when pop divas get bored these days, they like to strip off their clothes
, bare their boobs
and toss the photos out there for public consumption, whether they be devoured through print
or on Instagram
However, Rihanna, as we know, got her wrist slapped awhile back for posting such naughtiness to photo-sharing hub Instagram, so now she dishes out her racy snaps on the apparently less-conservative medium known as Twitter. And RiRi’s latest message to her fans, just as summer begins to wind down? That would be: “School. Kills.”
That’s a lovely thought, considering kiddies have enough dread every time the start of the school year rolls around. Oh, and Rihanna also attached a pic of herself wearing a see-through skirt, with her hand suggestively placed on her mesh panty-covered business. Enjoy below! More »
The NFL Super Bowl! A shining American beacon of sportsmanship, teamwork, freedom — and heavily censored FCC rules and regulations.
After a series of superstar performances in past years, including Bruno Mars, last year’s Beyoncé Bowl and 2012′s show with Madonna (which landed her in hot water thanks to M.I.A.‘s middle finger), the show organizers have reportedly narrowed down the potential performers for next year’s show to Katy Perry, Rihanna or Coldplay. That is — if they’ve got the money.
The Wall Street Journal reports that NFL organizers “also asked at least some of the acts if they would be willing to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig,” which has apparently been met with “chilly reception.” That’s right: They’ve got the gall to ask if these superstar acts would pay to play.
