Scary
A million weeks ago, before Pharrell‘s “Happy” was the #1 song in the country, Eminem and Rihanna‘s second collaboration, “The Monster,” was the first single to top the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014. And while the rest of the music industry was either taking in, performing at or recovering from Coachella, Em and RiRi hit the stage at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday (April 13) night and performed the Marshall Mathers LP 2 smash live for the very first time.

Rihanna Poses Naked With Ass In The Air, A Bikini Top On While Perched On All Fours

Unapologetic
Rihanna is no stranger to showing skin for the camera, and her latest exploit comes courtesy of a photo shoot for an undisclosed French magazine. TMZ was on the scene, snapping no less than 70 pics of the bare-butted “Diamonds” singer as she arched on all fours and even had some dude pour water on her back while the lens captured the classy moment.

The most we can hope for is this whole spectacle signalling that new music is indeed on the way from Rihanna…perhaps sooner than we think. (After all, she does have a new tour coming up.) At the very least, it’s something to feast your eyes on for a few seconds — though, really, after about pic #17, they all look the same.

Eminem and Rihanna are linking up at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards for the debut performance of their hit collaboration “The Monster,” off Slim Shady’s MMLP2. While there’s no apparent connection to anything in cinema beyond the fact that, like, some movies have like monsters and stuff, the stint is timed to give fans a preview of Em and RiRi’s upcoming Monster Tour, which kicks off August 7.

The two stars join an increasingly music-focused MTV Movie Awards roster, with Ellie Goulding and Zedd scheduled to perform a pair of Divergent tracks, plus a performance from twenty one pilotsMore »

Rihanna & Chvrches Mashed Up On “The Umbrella We Share”: Listen

Internet mashup artist Chambaland has struck gold, melding the unlikely pairing of Chvrches and Rihanna for the perfectly titled “The Umbrella We Share.” The mashup uses the chipper synth arrangement of the Glasgow trio’s “The Mother We Share” to underpin RiRi’s “Umbrella” vocals, making for a juxtaposition so odd that it ends up being alluring.

And however you feel about the mashup, it’s worth listening through just to hear how perfectly the bridges match up. Stream the novelty joint here. More »

Girls Take It Off: 14 Sexy Pics Of Pop Divas Baring Almost All In 2014 (Q1)

Sex sells. Nobody knows that better than our favorite pop stars, who are losing their clothes in magazines, videos and on social media at every opportunity. And it’s not just the usual suspects (Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus). Everybody is getting in on it, from the usually demure Selena Gomez to British girl-next-door Jessie J.

The phenomenon also transcends age and race. Madonna (55) recently posted a picture of her butt on Instagram, while Kylie Minogue (45) raised temperatures — and other things — in her eye-popping “Sexercize” video. Oh, and let’s not forget Beyonce (32). She made the entire internet blush with her hypersexual “Partition” visual. See the sexiest pop star antics of 2014 (thus far) up top. More »

First iHeartRadio Awards Announced: Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Imagine Dragons Lead Nominees

A bunch of suits in a conference room have decided that the world needs another awards show, so here we are, talking about the first iHeartRadio Awards and a bunch of nominated names we’ve already named regarding nominations for all the other awards shows. In the future, there will be only awards shows, in order to keep the huddled masses in check.

Rihanna leads the pack of pop star nominees with seven nominations, including artist of the year (um, what year?!) and song of the year. Justin Timberlake nabbed five nominations and Imagine Dragons got four, and they’ll both be competing against RiRi in the artist of the year category. MacklemoreLordeMaroon 5, etc etc etc, they’re all represented. Nominees for the awards were selected based on the “iHeartRadioChart, which compiles airplay-based listener feedback and performance data, digital streaming data from the iHeartRadio platform and sales, social video data and tags from Big Champagne and Shazam.” Sure why not. Look, we’re in the business of pop music here, and when there’s an awards show, business is good. But, just stahp.

The totally necessary ceremony airs May 1 on NBC. Head below for the full list of nominees. More »
