Check Out The First Trailer For “Battleship”

In: Donovan, Movies

You just sank my battleship!” Man, I loved playing this game as a kid. When I first heard the classic board game was being adapted for the big screen, I was a little perplexed. Battleship was fun and all, but how were they going to create a full-length film based on a game where you sank your opponent’s fleet of ships. Simple, add aliens. DUH.

The newly-released trailer for “Battleship” looks like “Transformers” meets “Independence Day“. Sound confused? Watch the trailer and you’ll see. Even if the storyline sucks balls, at least we have a bit of eye candy to look at in the form of “True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgard and “Friday Night Lights” hottie Taylor Kitsch. Despite looking absolutely nothing alike, the two play brothers. Yummy. The film also marks the acting debut of Rihanna. I watched the trailer a couple of times, but couldn’t see her. Maybe she takes form as that huge alien or her acting is that wooden. LOL. Liam Neeson, Brooklyn Decker and Josh Pence round out the cast. Here’s the movie’s plot courtesy of Wikipedia.

A story of an international Navy fleet engaged in a very dynamic and intense battle against an alien race known as “The Regents”. The aliens come to planet Earth, on a mission to build a power source in the ocean. Upon their visit, they come in contact with a navy fleet. The film is also purported to show both sides of the story, from the aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans.

Poor Megan Fox. Apparently, she’s not irreplaceable. First Rosie Huntington Whiteley replaced her on Transformers and now Fox is losing her other regular gig. Rihanna has been tapped to become the new global ambassador for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans. The “What’s My Name” singer is the latest celebrity to show off their body for the brand, joining the likes of Victoria Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and David Beckham.

Rihanna will front the Fall-Winter 2011 ad campaign with the first images rolling out in September. Famed fashion photographer Steven Klein has already snapped the “S&M” singer in New York. RiRi has no problem shedding her clothes for a great picture, so I expect some really racy photos coming our way.

Fox reportedly earned $2 million for posing in her underwear. With that kind of cash no longer coming in, I wonder if Fox is secretly hoping “Jennifer’s Body” or “Jonah Hex” sequel gets green lit. LOL. Mama’s gotta find a way to pay for that botox she’s apparently “not” using.

On Friday night, Rihanna was performing at Dallas’ American Airlines Center on her LOUD Tour when a fire broke out on stage that brought the concert to early wrap! As part of the show, at the end of her “California King Bed” performance, fireworks start raining down from the set and Rihanna left the stage on cue. But then something went wrong with the pyro. A fire broke out above the stage and everyone at the concert ended up having to be evacuated. Luckily, she had performed most of her hits already, including “Shut Up And Drive,” “Disturbia,” “Only Girl (In The World),” and “S&M,” but there were still many she didn’t end up getting the chance to perform.

Here’s what Rihanna said on Twitter following the incident: “Dallas!!! We set the stage on FYAH tonight!!! LITERALLY!!!…I was havin so much fun wit yall too!!! I gotta come back man!!” She later added, “Dallas yall CRAY!!! Love this f***n place! Glad u guys are safe!!! I promise I’ll be back!!! Heading into a production meeting to find out exactly what happened!!! Keep u posted.”

Last night, the stars of R&B, Hip Hop and black entertainment turned it out for the 2011 BET Awards. What’s great about this awards show is that it doesn’t just celebrate great musical talent but actors and movies as well. In an evening hosted by Kevin Hart the performances were plenty and impressed everyone in the Shrine Auditorium.

Mary J. Blige opened the show with an incredible performance medley including her hit Real Love and a duet with Anita Baker. She closed her performance with the debut of her new single with DJ Khaled titled It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over. Other show stopping performances came from artists like Jill Scott, Kelly Rowland and probably jet lagged Beyoncé who came straight from her recent appearance at Glastonbury. Among the plethora of performances, the show did manage to hand out a few awards but still managed to head over the three hour time slot. I blame the long but amazing tribute to Lifetime Achievement Award winner Patti LaBelle.

If you missed the show, make sure you check out the complete list of winners below. In an interesting turn of events, Chris Brown and Rihanna brought home matching awards with both of them gaining top honors in the best R&B category.

Concert Review: Rihanna Gets Loud

In: Donovan, Music

It’s been a gloomy past few days in Vancouver and I was in desperate need of some sunshine. Thankfully Rihanna brought the sunny skies and the heat along with her, and I’m not talking about her bright Kool-aid color hair either. Literally, as the Bajan beauty landed in YVR, the mercury rose and clouds dissipated. RiRi kicked off her two day gig last night at Rogers Arena to a packed house. After reading a few early reviews of her concert, I was stoked. Even with Cee-Lo Green skipping out as an opening act for the Vancouver date, I was excited to see Robyn Rihanna Fenty live.

Technically this was my first time seeing Rihanna in concert. I had previously seen her live during a taping of American Idol, but that really doesn’t count. Instead of seeing her just sing one song, I was in store for two hours of Rihanna strutting it out on stage. Simply put, Rihanna’s Loud Tour was euphoric. Whether she was working out some serious choreography or belting out a ballad, Rihanna gave it her all. Shelling out money to see someone badly lip sync their way through the concert is not my idea of a good time (I’m talking to you Britney Spears). So, I definitely appreciate Rihanna providing live vocals for her fans. Now that’s a true artist.

Rihanna Gives Female Fan A Lap Dance

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan, Music

I wonder how much of a tip Rihanna got from the lucky female fan. The 23-year-old singer performed an overtly sexual lap dance on stage while singing her song, “Skin“, during her concert in Baltimore. Two shirtless men brought the chosen fan to the edge of a round platform. RiRi then pushed the woman to her back and straddled her. She followed that up by pinning her down and gyrating her hips over her, before lying down beside her. I’m sure plenty enjoyed the girl on girl action.

One group that probably won’t be amused is the Parent’s Television Council (PTC). The group recently targeted the Bajan beauty for her violent new music video, “Man Down“. Being a target of domestic physical abuse, the council had hoped Rihanna promoted a message of seeking help instead of planning a premeditated murder. I get what the PTC is trying to say, but they have to realize that Rihanna probably doesn’t want to be the poster child for the cause for her lifetime. It’s only a music video and form of entertainment.

Rihanna Premieres “Man Down” Music Video

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

The fifth single from her “Loud” album, Rihanna has just released the music video for her “Man Down” track. Before I continue, I want to share that as I write this, the smell of reefer is blowing into my apartment from the neighbors balcony below me and it seems like a fitting aroma for this Jamaican video slash song (which also reminds me of my younger years listening to “Santaria” by Sublime). The song has a very similar feel to Santaria, except with a tad of Debbie Downer in my opinion.

Anyway, set in Jamaica, the Anthony Mandler-directed video starts of with a man who has been shot down by Rihanna, as the song implies. We are then taken back to the previous day’s events to see how this tragedy came to be.

Just your average twizzled licorice red head from the village, Rihanna spends the day out in the sun before letting loose on the dance floor at night. When the juiced up creep she’s dancing with takes thing to another level and wants to take her to his California King Bed for some S&M , Rihanna pushes him away. Unfortunately, he doesn’t take no for an answer and Rihanna finds herself a victim of assault once again (thankfully, this time not in real life). To make a long story short, Rihanna is a “Good Girl Gone Bad” and she murders the guy.

Last night, the Billboard Music Awards had Vegas all shook up at the MGM Grand with performances by the chart toppers of the last year. No doubt about it, Vegas knows how to party and who better to host a party in Vegas than Hangover 2 star Ken Jeong. He introduced himself with a great little musical cabaret number featuring Nicki Minaj and the lead singer of Train. Truly entertaining and the lyrics were hilarious.

The night was littered with performances very heavy on the pop/dance genre. We were treated to a little S&M from Rihanna who was then joined by Britney to round off the performance. Side note: Britney’s bod is looking real good. Cee-Lo’s performance was outstanding while Ke$ha brought the party as per usual with a herd of men dressed as red horses. Nicki Minaj returned to the stage to perform her new single Superbass and was joined by Ms. Spears who sang lip synced Till The World Ends.

The performance of the night for me definitely goes to the epic multimedia performance from Beyoncé who was the recipient of the Millennium Award. Prior to her performance she was honored in a video montage from Barbara Streisand, Lady Gaga, Michelle Obama and more. After building her nation on a giant white screen behind her, she was joined by an army of women who followed their leader with military dance move precision. By the way, did anyone else catch Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s little smooch?
