Yesterday, Rihanna released her first single, Only Girl (In The World) from her upcoming album, Loud. The consensus? The song is HOT and it’s a definite hit!
Today, Rihanna revealed a new look to her website with the picture above – the tattoo, “Rebelle Fleur“. There’s nothing on the site aside from the image at this point, which means there’s a lot more changes being made to the site in the meantime.
Rihanna premiered her newest single Only Girl (In The World) (as opposed to Last Girl On Earth ?) bright and early will premiere on Tuesday on RyanSeacrest.com at 3 a.m. PT/6 a.m. ET. The song was produced by Grammy-winning Norwegian producing team Stargate and it isn’t the first time this Battleship Barbadian has worked the duo. She has collaborated them for “Please Don’t Stop the Music,” “Hate That I Love You” and “Rude Boy.” This new single is the first from her next album, titled “Loud”.
So how is the song? As soon as I pushed play on the track I knew it was a hit. The beat is insane and this is gonna be huge in the clubs. It’s gonna be bigger than Rude Boy for sure!
The Key of Awesome is back with another brilliant parody – this time, Eminem & Rihanna are the targets, with Eminem’s hit single “Love The Way You Lie,” changing the name to “Love The Way You Like.” It’s the story of two primary school kids and their relationship “liking each other” and not showing it in the best of ways. The lyrics are rewritten to match the storyline and the kids acting it out are adorable.
The writer of the song gives credit to a new app called LaDiDa (from a company called Kush), which is a voice recording app that lets you easily create songs on your iPhone. It’s like a reverse Karaoke app in that you sing first and then it perfectly matches your song with a track.
Bitch needs to keep her mouth shut already. I swear, if you watch Gossip Girl, Taylor Momsen and her character on the show “Jenny Humphrey” or “Little J” are exactly the same. Aside from being an actress, the 17 year old is also the lead singer in The Pretty Reckless, and reckless she is. In her latest word vomit, Momsen took a stab at Rihanna, via an interview with SPIN Magazine. GASP – oh no she didnt!!
“People think pop is rock, and the lines are getting blurred. Now Rihanna’s wearing f*ckin’ leather jackets, and it’s really annoying.”
You know what’s really annoying? YOU! I can’t believe she feels she can wear whatever she wants, yet feels the need to judge others for what they wear. Momsen even describes her image as “high class hooker”. She says she dresses for herself, and added…
“The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire. We don’t need no water let the motherf*cker burn.” Apparently Rihanna & Eminem took those Bloodhound Gang lyrics literally. For a change, the music television network, MTV, actually decided to play a music video on the network- what a novel idea. Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” premiered before a brand new classy episode of “The Jersey Shore“.
Eminem’s collaboration with RiRi features the duo singing/rapping about an abusive relationship between a dysfunctional couple played by none other than Megan Fox (Jennifer’s Body) and Dominic Monaghan (Lost). It’s good to see, Fox has picked herself up and working again after being publicly
fired dropped by Michael Bay for Transformers 3. Too bad she’s been regulated to music video vixen. It’s not Shakespeare in the park, but it’ll do.
Given Rihanna’s very public dealings with domestic violence, the video is even more poignant and stirring. Good on RiRi for tackling the issue head on. Hopefully this wise career move, will finally put the unfortunate situation behind her, once and for all. I like my Rihanna more Umbrella-ella-ella than Rated R. Let’s hope her upcoming album is less dark.
“You just sank my battleship.” I wonder if Rihanna will get to utter those iconic words in the movie adaptation of the classic board game, Battleship. According to Variety, Rihanna has signed on to appear in the movie. This will mark her acting debut.
Ri-Ri joins True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard, and Friday Night Light’s Taylor Kitsch in the Peter Berg directed action flick. Not sure how they’ll create an engaging story from a 80s board game. Will Skarsgard and Rihanna be reciting B5, C9, A2 combinations to each other as they try to sink each fleet of carriers and battleships? One thing is certain, this is one good looking cast.
Say what you will about Chris Brown, but you can’t deny he’s a kick-ass live performer. During last night’s BET Awards telecast, Brown finally got his shot to pay homage to his hero, Michael Jackson. Brown is arguably one of the, if not, the only performer who could do the “King of Pop” justice.
Michael’s brother, Jermaine introduced Brown who wore a blue shirt, black pants, white socks and Jackson’s trademark black loafers. A look very reminiscent of MJ’s 1988 Grammy performance. He performed a medley of Jackson’s hits which included “The Way You Make Me Feel”, “Remember The Time”, “Smooth Criminal”, and “Billie Jean”.
But it was his “Man in the Mirror” performance everyone is talking about today. From the very first line, Brown could barely compose himself in singing the lyrics. He was definitely choking up and broke out into tears. Perhaps the poignancy of the song hit the embattled singer harder than he thought.
Was the moment genuine or was it Brown’s attempt to regain favor back with the public after his highly documented Rihanna scandal? Mea culpa or crocodile tears? You be the judge.
