Everyone knows I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of dude so whenever I hear anything about fashion I feel like Anne Hathaway in the first half of The Devil Wears Prada. And no, the makeover never happens. I’m pretty much Anne Hathaway all the time. However, I’m smart enough to understand that the news of fashion icon Rihanna gearing up to unleash a new fashion house under the powerful luxury group LVMH is a huge deal.
I’m going to assume when Rihanna sang the freelancers anthem Bitch Better Have My Money back in 2016, she never thought she’d be belting out those words to her very own father. However, greed will turn even the closet family members into your archenemy, and in today’s epic battle Rih Rih is suing her messy father Ronald Fenty for misusing the Fenty brand name for his own financial gain.
We’ve all known since September that Maroon 5 will most likely headline the Super Bowl halftime show in Atlanta on February 3, but it seemed like the NFL wanted somebody else to sweeten the pot of bland oatmeal. They asked Cardi B, who did that Girls Like You song with Maroon 5, to make an appearance, but she wanted her own set. Before going with Maroon 5, the NFL asked Rihanna and Jay-Z, but they turned down the offer in support of Colin Kaepernick. But well, rapper and the father of Kylie Jenner’s baby, Travis Scott, better expect a slap down from Amy Schumer, because he’s going to perform.
In a page from the book of “REALLY DUMBASS IDEAS,” there are reports the two people who probably shouldn’t be in contact with each other most certainly are. As y’all very well know, Rihanna and Chris Brown were together from 2008 until 2009 when he beat her in his car one night before the Grammy Awards…and we all know the rest. Wellp, it sounds like those two are in “constant contact.”
I’m sure Beyoncé, Madonna, Taylor Swift, Celine Dion, the yellow Teletubby, and any female to ever sing a song not named Katy Perry woke up this morning and scratched their head over this news. The annual list of highest-paid female singers is out, and I guess that American Idol reboot check was invested well. Katy Perry made the most bank out of any chanteuse.
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.
