Rihanna Annihilates TLC On Twitter After They Commented On Her Sexy Image: See Her Lethal Shade

Don’t fuck with Rihanna. That’s a life lesson we can all take from the diva’s ruthless Twitter beef with TLC. You’re probably wondering what RiRi could possibly have against the ’90s girl group? Well, T-Boz and Chilli dared to diss the “Monster” singer’s raunchy image. “It’s easy to sell sex,” the ladies said in an Australian TV interview. “We became the biggest girl selling group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot. We could go around too with booby cakes out all day long.”

That relatively vague statement was enough to trigger Rih’s rage. She changed her Twitter banner to an old photo of TLC posing topless and told her followers: “There’s no changing the fact that I’m me, and they’re well…they’re them.” Ouch. Rihanna’s shade is truly next-level. Never forget how she pretty much ended Teyana Taylor‘s career with a couple of tweets and humiliated Ciara by questioning her ability to book a stage. Watch T-Boz and Chilli’s interview after the jump and see RiRi’s revenge. More »

Rihanna Storms CFDA Awards In See-Through Dress: Watch Her Speech & Victory Twerk

Rihanna joined the ranks of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Hurley and Jennifer Lopez when she showed up at the CFDA Awards on June 2. Appearing as a modern-day Josephine Baker, she wore a sheer dress decorated in over 200,000 Swarovski crystals, with matching gloves, a nude thong and a pink stole.

“The dress is just fishnet and crystals and a couple of fingers crossed,” designer Adam Selman said to Style. Watch, though – this dress will soon have its own Wikipedia entry, as “Sheer Adam Selman dress of Rihanna.”

Anna Wintour, Vogue editor-in-chief and Rihanna’s texting buddy, later presented her with the Fashion Icon Award. “Rihanna speaks to her fans with her every look,” she said. “And what she says to them — and I include all of us in that group — is that it’s fun to feel a little boyish one day and dress up like a dazzling diva the next. I think that’s what she was going for tonight.” The crowd laughed. More »

Is Rihanna Teasing Lyrics From Her Eighth Album?

Rihanna continues to dominate headlines in 2014, though not for music. Recently, designer Tom Ford made a bold claim: Rihanna’s Instagram is more influential than any fashion reviewer. (He must not know about its disappearance, or even that she’s due to release not one, but two albums this year.) So when the Unapologetic star teased new lyrics without explanation, fans freaked out.

For all Rihanna’s pooh-poohing of basics, her lyrics are about falling for the wrong guy, despite knowing better: “Your silver tongue is full of lies, with tricks and thrills and Bambi eyes.” She tagged a few of them as #barz, which sent her Navy in a frantic search for more details. One fan found a new Keri Hilson lyric, while MTV spotted that Nicki Minaj reposted a fan drawing with #barz hashtag too.

The idea sounds too good to be true, though it’s still worth asking: Can Rihanna, Keri and Nicki be plotting a collaboration? See the #barz-related posts below and weigh in at the comments. More »

Rihanna Taps Emeli Sande To Write Songs For ‘Home’ Concept Album

Rihanna‘s concept album for an upcoming 3D animated film, Home, is starting to take shape. Emeli Sande reveals that she has been writing songs along with producer Rodney Jerkins. “I’ve been writing for Rihanna’s new movie, which has been incredible,” Sande said to Digital Spy. “I was with Rodney Jerkins the other night. I feel now I’m back on creative mode.”

She isn’t kidding. Sande, the biggest-selling U.K. artist of 2012 and 2013, also revealed that she has been in the studio with Naughty Boy, the rising producer behind “La La La” featuring Sam Smith. And it’s fitting, too – as Naughty Boy revealed to us last year, that same global hit was originally to be written with Sande herself. “But because she was on tour, I did the session with Sam and I presented the idea to him,” he said. “It just had to be Sam because where it went from there is perfect.” More »

Rihanna Is An “Idiot” With A “Bad Wig” According To Charlie Sheen: See The Actor’s Twitter Rant

Well, this is ugly/hilarious. Rihanna and Charlie Sheen ate at the same restaurant last night (May 21) but instead of exchanging the usual pleasantries, RiRi blew off the actor and his girlfriend when they tried to say hello. (She had obviously seen one too many episodes of Two And A Half Men). Anyway, the outraged thespian jumped on Twitter this morning and put the Barbadian babe on blast.

Charlie considered the missed encounter a blessing. He likened the prospect of conversing with RiRi to “chugging Draino” but was upset for his girlfriend and reprimanded the diva for being rude. “THIS is why I’m in this thing 31 awesome years,” Chuck wrote. “Good will and common courtesy, carefully established over time to exist radically in concert with a code of gratitude!” He makes a valid point there but things soon got personal when the 48-year-old trashed Rihanna’s wig.

“It was a pleasure NOT meeting you,” Charlie concluded. “Clearly we have NOTHING in common when it comes to respect for those who’ve gone before you. I’m guessing you needed those precious 84 seconds [she said she was too busy to talk] to situate that bad wig before you left the restaurant.” Read his long-winded but hilarious rant after the jump.

Ebony magazine pays tribute to Beyonce, Jay Z, Rihanna and Kanye West in their collectors’ edition, four-cover Black Music Month special issue. Each superstar gets their own special cover and title.
