Look, Rihanna’s a busy woman. She’s an international mogul, she does not have time for the bullshit. However, she did take time out of her busy schedule (which I imagine involves walking around a laboratory in a unprofessionally short lab coat, wearing 6 inch stilettos and safety goggles, testing the glitter density of her Fenty eyeshadow by blowing it into the air) to let it be known that she’s not going to stand for Donald Trump using her music at campaign rallies.
Amy Schumer has joined Rihanna‘s side for the fight that is “HELL NO Super Bowl LII”, sparking a celebrity boycotting of the sporting event. A few days ago RiRi reportedly turned down the chance to play at the Halftime show, citing her support of Colin Kaepernick as the reason. The NFL read her loud and clear, and ended up going with one of the most lukewarm bowls of uncontroversial musical oatmeal Maroon 5. Amy is not here for Maroon 5 or anyone else taking part in the fuckery that is the Super Bowl, so she’s calling on Adam Levine and others to join her in a boycott. Continue reading
Rihanna has been very busy becoming the Number 1 Avon Sales Lady in her district, but she is also still a world-renowned pop star. As such, you can still catch her in between makeup tutorials recording or performing music. But one place you will never see Miss RiRi is the NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show, because she has made it clear that she is not about that life.
The NYC premiere for Ocean’s 8 was held last night, and I know it would be appropriate to say Rihanna stole the show at a premiere for a heist movie. But that would be wrong. Rihanna looks like she doesn’t have to steal anything. She looks like the type of rich woman that walks into a jewelry store and the manager immediately whips out the keys to the most expensive diamond cases with cartoon “ka-ching” commission dollars in their eyes. All that’s missing is a white poodle named Miss Precious and a silk hanky placed on her theater seat by a butler named Alfred P. Snobworth.
I now understand why Rihanna might break up with her ultra-rich boyfriend; why be with someone who is merely worth billions when you can look like billions. In this case, I’m treating the essence of glamour as if it were USDs, and I believe I did an accurate conversion.
Here’s more of Rihanna and the rest of the Ocean’s 8 crowd, like Cate Blanchett who appears to be auditioning for a David Bowie tribute band, and Sarah Paulson giving you SAT-prep hi-liter realness.
Rihanna has been rumored to be grinding her ooh-na-nas on the gear shift of Saudi Toyota billionaire Hassan Jameel for about a year. But according to MediaTakeOut, Rihanna is no longer with Hassan. Poor Drake is no doubt kicking himself right now. If he weren’t so busy dodging an illegitimate son scandal, he could be working on the perfect way to swoop in and try to win back the love of his life. The bad news for Drake is that Rihanna might not be sad about her breakup.
Sources tell MTO that Rihanna has recently broken up with Hassan because she got bored. Some women might have revived their interest by dreaming of those sweet Toyota upgrades (mmmmm….on-the-house heated seats). But when Rihanna is bored, she’s bored, and doesn’t take long to leave. One source says:
“Of course Rihanna broke his heart. That’s what she does – break men’s hearts. Rihanna just got tired of him. She gets tired of men sometimes.”
That same source adds that it was a good relationship, and they were together for a while, but they’re over now.
Harper’s Bazaar points out that it’s not like Rihanna has a ton of time to dedicate to dating anyway. She’s in Ocean’s 8, which comes out on Friday, as well as running her lingerie line Savage x Fenty and her makeup company Fenty Beauty. I hope that as Rihanna patted her mouth to stifle a yawn on her way out of Hassan’s life, she left him with a little goodbye gift in the form of a dry cleaning gift certificate. Billionaire or not, getting all that liquid body shimmer out of fancy silk bed sheets can’t be easy, and it’s just a kind gesture.
The recently brow-less Rihanna isn’t one of those celebrities who feels like she needs to make nice with the journos. Or even the fans. She’ll speak her mind. Which is exactly what she did when an Access Hollywood hairspray model asked her a dumb question about the upcoming royal wedding (aka “Michael K’s Day Of International Mourning“).
Firstly, Ms. Fenty acted like she didn’t know Prince Harry was getting married in a week. Secondly, she met the guy once, you Access Hollywood dummy. No, she won’t go to your wedding. Her eleventy-third assistant in charge of opening snail mail would probably laugh at your invite and throw it out the castle window.
