Given that Coldplay and Rihanna performed “Princess of China” way back in February at the Grammys, the British band sure took their sweet ass time releasing the music video for their duet with the “We Found Love” singer. Perhaps Chris Martin and company were waiting til RiRi’s schedule freed up a bit. Girlfriend sure has been busy promoting the box office bomb, “Battleship“.

Taking inspiration from Eastern influences, directors Adria Petty and Alan Bibby have Rihanna and Martin busting out their martial arts moves. AH YA!!! The “Princess of China” video is a smörgåsbord of Asian culture. From Japanese ninjas and samurais, to Thai goddesses, any cliché reference you can think of, it’s in the clip. That said, Rihanna looks absolutely gorgeous in her outfits. During filming, the singer tweeted pictures describing her look as “gangsta goth geisha“. That description couldn’t be more accurate.

I have to admit, I’m not loving the song. I much prefer Rihanna’s collaboration with Drake on “Take Care” more. Can’t get enough of that. But I will say, the visual gives “Princess of China” new life. Even though, there is no discernible story line, it’s beautifully shot and will have you fixated. Plus, you get to see if Rihanna and Mr. Gywneth Paltrow lock lips. Watch the clip below and find out.

Movie Review: Battleship

In: Matt, Movies

Wednesday night, my dear friend Amanda and I went to the screening of “Battleship”, the movie based on the board game of the same name. How anyone thought of taking a board game with no characters and developing it into a Hollywood blockbuster is beyond me. The product of this genius is a 131 minute gargantuan alien invasion flick that seems to get lost inside its numerous and uninteresting sub-plots. Imagine Armageddon and Top Gun had a baby.

The majority of the movie happens in Hawaii during a series of naval exercises when alien invaders crash into the Pacific Ocean in response to a beacon sent to a planet closely resembling earth. Other than as a response to the beacon, we are never given much insight into the intentions of the aliens and are instead inundated with the useless sub-plots not even worth mentioning. This mess of a story line all leads up to a group of WWII vets wearing aviators walking in slow motion to ACDC’s “Thunderstruck” as they come to save the day by fighting on their OWN ship, which happens to be a museum. Honestly, I’m not making this shit up. We were practically pissing ourselves.

Forbes Magazine has just revealed their “Celebrity 100” list for this year, revealing a new number one celebrity for 2012. The magazine looks at various factors when classifying the celebs, including: Wealth, TV/Radio ranking, Press ranking, Web ranking, and Social ranking.

The person who topped this list year is involved in many areas of the business and despite the image above, it’s not Justin Bieber nor is it Oprah Winfrey. I’m not surprised to see this person on the list, but I must say I’m a little surprised to see them at number one. Last year, Gaga topped the list with Oprah trailing behind in second. This year, the Top 10 list is quite different, but Oprah finds herself at number two once again.

Check out the Top 10 list below to find out who tops the list this year.

Rihanna Brings The Sexy To SNL

In: Music, Patrick, TV Shows, Videos

Last night, Eli Manning hosted SNL with musical guest Rihanna. The episode wasn’t the greatest, but there were some funny skits that made it worth watching.

Rihanna’s first performance featured both “Birthday Cake” and “Talk That Talk“. She sang in front of a giant spider web and did a lot of vagina-tapping, as she repeated the word “cake”. The second performance was amazing, with Rihanna singing her single “Where Have You Been“. The performance had a similar ancient Egyptian theme to the music video that was released earlier in the week. She and her sexy backup dancers recreated a lot of the choreography featured in the video and it was definitely my favorite performance on SNL in a while. Rihanna is one sexy lady!

Watch both performances below and be sure to tune into SNL next week to watch Will Ferrell with musical guest Usher!

Rihanna has just revealed her new music video for her hot dance track “Where Have You Been” and we’ve got your first look. With various exotic outfits and hairstyles combined with some hot dancing, it’s definitely a sexy one.

As the video begins, the Barbados ‘Battleship’ beauty surfaces from a swamp, peeking out like some sort of crocodile. From there, we cut to several other clips with totally different looks and some with a crew of sexy shirtless backup dancers. She had recently revealed the choreography for the video in a behind the scenes look.

The good thing about making a video for such a fast-paced song is that it gives you a lot of freedom to cut to so many clips and explore many different things visually. Personally, I like the video and it’s a perfect complement to a great song. Check out the video below and let me know what you think.

Rihanna may be from the Caribbean, but the singer looks natural and absolutely stunning in Asian-inspired attire and jewelry in this new clip. The Bajan beauty filmed footage that will be shown on Coldplay’s current tour. The visual was first screened at the British band’s show in Edmonton, Canada a week ago.

Rihanna’s clip appears as a backdrop during Coldplay’s live performance of “Princess of China“. Since RiRi can’t be with them throughout the entire tour, this is the next best thing. That said, I’m sure Rihanna will pop up in person during one of the stops on Coldplay’s world tour. Mark my words. Given that the track is lead singer Chris Martin’s “favorite bit” on the record, I’m sure he’ll convince her to do a surprise guest appearance.

“Rihanna’s bit on our record is my favorite bit,” Chris Martin said. “When the song came out, it sort of asked for her to be on it. And I think at this point, we have nothing to lose, and so we’ve been trying some new things and trying to break down the perceived boundaries between different types of music.”

Considering the track is titled, “Princess of China“, I find the wardrobe a little odd. Yes, it’s stunning, but I get more of an Indian and Indonesian vibe than Chinese from the styling choices. Maybe it’s just me. Watch the entire clip and see what you think.

YES! This song is finally getting the release it deserves. Rihanna‘s track “Where Have You Been” would have been a monster follow up to her We Found Love dancefloor craze. Instead, the singer slowed it down with “You Da One” and then disappointed again when she chose the title track of her album, Talk That Talk to be the third single. Finally, she’s giving this dancefloor summer anthem a chance to shine on its own, complete with music video treatment.

This week, she teased with this photo from the video shoot seen above. Now, she’s released an exclusive behind-the-scenes video from dance rehearsals for the video. Teaming up with choreographer Hi-Hat, Rihanna and her team of sexy men and women are filmed rehearsing some pretty sick choreo for her new video. In the clip, Rihanna states that she didn’t want to do the video unless they could do choreography. I’m so glad she said that because to be honest, we were all thinking it. I cannot wait. Check out the behind-the-scenes clip below.

Rihanna is currently in Australia right now promoting her debut film, “Battleship“. She sat down with Sunrise for a one-one-one interview where she was asked about her experience venturing into acting and whether she foresees in her future in terms music versus movies.

The reporter then ventured into the topic of Rihanna’s private life asking her, “How frustrating is it when you’re linked to another Hollywood star, and even if you’ve barely met them.” Rihanna responded, “Very frustrating, almost as frustrating as being asked about it… I mean, what’s the point?” Yikes. The report then says, “Well, people are interested in you, you’re a big star.” Rihanna then says, “They are, and they’re interested in a lot of things – a lot of things that don’t matter… or shouldn’t.” And that’s where the interview abruptly ends.

Hey, at least she didn’t throw a chair at the window like Chris Brown did on GMA. Oh, and coincidently, Brown is in Australia right now now as well. Watch the tension in the interview unfold below.
