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. The visual opens with Colombia’s best export writhing in bed before hitting the pool for some topless exercise.

That’s where duet partner RiRi comes in to raise the temperature even further. The lovely ladies grope each other, smoke cigars in bed — sure, why not — and twerk in hallways of their glamorous mansion. Because that’s what friends do when they’re discussing their love lives over reggae beats and driving guitars. Watch the elegance up top. More »

See Who Won What
The 56th annual Grammy Awards kicked off at 8 p.m. on Jauary 26th at Los Angeles’ mammoth Staples Center, and before the televised event even hit the airwaves, awards were handed out to artists and personalities as varied as Michael Buble (Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album) and Stephen Colbert (Best Spoken Word Album), and albums like Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories (Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical and Best Dance/Electronic Album).

French duo Daft Punk went on to nab the awards for Album Of The Year, Record Of The Year and Best Duo Or Group Performance, the latter two for their summer jam “Get Lucky.” New Zealand teen Lorde proved to be a big upset when she took the Song Of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance Grammys for her radio smash “Royals.”

Rihanna Continues To Make Instagram Worthwhile With More Sexy Bikini Pics

Another day, another picture of Rihanna in a skimpy bikini with cigar in hand. This time the Barbadian babe was hanging out in Brazil with close friend Melissa Ford and obviously she felt the need to share the moment with her millions of Instagram followers because that’s, well, her thing.

After posing up a storm, the ladies removed their bikini tops but showed some modesty by turning their backs to the camera. This is so touching. You know the motto — friends that strip together, stick together. In other RiRi news, her Facebook page went down last night (January 22) prompting speculation that she has a big announcement on the way. See the pics after the jump. More »

Mikky Ekko’s Original Version Of Rihanna’s “Stay” Is Absolutely Gorgeous: Listen

Mikky Ekko made the leap from critically acclaimed underground artist to veritable hitmaker by penning (and lending his vocals to) Rihanna‘s career-best ballad “Stay”. The song has been covered by everyone from Vin Diesel to Patti Smith and will probably still be played at weddings ten years from now. But what did the original demo sound like?

The answer is absolutely gorgeous. Mikky’s solo version of the blockbuster smash surfaced online today (January 22) and it sounds remarkably similar to Rihanna’s mega-selling interpretation. The arrangement is unchanged and RiRi even mimicked the Nashville-based songsmith’s vocal delivery. Listen to the pretty, understated demo after the jump. More »

Patti Smith Covers Rihanna’s “Stay”: Watch

Punk poet Patti Smith performed in New York City on December 30, and for her 67th birthday that night she treated fans to a host of covers, including renditions of songs by Lou Reed, John Lennon… and Rihanna! Smith joined the growing list of musicians showing their appreciation for RiRi’s lovely “Stay,” reportedly calling it “the 2013 song of the year” before breaking out a cover — but somehow the video of her rendition sat largely unnoticed on YouTube until now.

The pig-tailed rock icon stood stoically as she crooned the ballad at Webster Hall, her vocals as evocative as ever. Near the end, Smith forgets some of the lyrics, saying, “Wait, wait. I’m sorry, I’m just nervous. I was doing so good,” before picking up where she left off. Turns out even the legends still get butterflies.

Check it out below, then compare it to Vin Diesel‘s rendition from last Valentine’s Day. More »

Rihanna Makes Paddle Boarding Sexy In Brazil: 10 Pics

RiRi rocks a tiny bikini while posing on a paddle board and even manages to smoke a cigar (let’s give her the benefit of the doubt) while working out. That takes skill and coordination! After working up a sweat, Shakira‘s duet partner removed her top — much to the delight of her millions of followers. More »
