Everything’s coming up roses for Rihanna. The faux red-haired beauty unveiled the official TV commercial for her first fragrance, “Reb’l Fleur“. To put it simply, it’s absolutely GORGE!!! RiRi literally blooms from this wicked gigantic flower. She then walks through this mysterious garden where she discovers her bad side. Rihanna sure does love working the good girl gone bad angle, doesn’t she? At the “climax” of the commercial, Rihanna also reaches a magical good climax. Two men cover her eyes, while her perfume gives her all kinds of tingly sensations.

Sure, celebrity fragrances are a dime, a dozen, but I have to commend Rihanna for going all out on the marketing. She’s every bit the goddess she is in the commercial. Like the tagline says “Good Feels So Bad, Bad Feel So Good“. I couldn’t agree anymore. Check out the beautifully filmed clip below.

First Look: Rihanna’s S&M Music Video

In: Music, Tyrell

With photos surfacing all week, everyone has been highly anticipating the video for Rihanna’s hot track S&M off of her album Loud. She decided to debut the video exclusively on VEVO at midnight and boy, did it go a flutter on the social network waves.

This video is nothing but a trip. With all the outfit and scene changes, your senses will be overloaded with excitement. One of my favorite parts is Perez Hilton’s cameo as her dog slave in pink pants, ‘peeing’ on a fire hydrant. Amazing. She also has people taped to walls with security cameras taking in the view and she rolls around in a cute colorful outfit while having her legs and hands tied.

The video was directed by Ms. Melina who also directed Ne-Yo’s video for his hit Closer. The halusenagetic video is amazing and definitely ranks up there with one of my favorite music videos out there right now. So what are you waiting for… check it out!

In the infamous words of Destiny’s Child. Can you handle it? I don’t think you can handle it. Let that be your warning because hearing this amazing mashup will leave you in such a euphoric state, you’ll think you popped a few mind-altering pills. Seriously, this guy is amazing. My good friend, Scott, who’s currently living in Australia introduced me to this musical genius.

Robin Skouteris is a music producer, DJ and a video director from Athens, Greece. He’s mostly known for his mashups. Beside sharing his audio masterpieces to the world, Robin also remixes and composes for music artists, tv commercials and short films. His latest creation is titled “Popalicious!” and includes artists like The Pet Shop Boys, Destiny’s Child, Kylie Minogue, Salt-N-Pepa and much more. A couple years back, I claimed DJ Earworm had created the best video mashup ever, but after hearing this awesome mix, Robin Skouteris has supplanted Earworm in my eyes. Especially, given DJ Earworm’s less than stellar 2010 year-end video mashup.

Rihanna Wants You To Smell Like Her

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

Just what the world needs, another celebrity fragrance. While Beyonce wants you to “Heat” up, and Katy Perry wants you to “Purr” like a kitty, Rihanna thinks smelling like a rebellious flower is the way to go. Based on a nickname (rebellious flower) her grandmother gave her, Rihanna unveiled promo pics for her debut fragrance, “Reb’l Fleur“. For you hardcore fans, you know RiRi also has a grammatically-incorrect neck tattoo, rebelle fleur, based on her childhood moniker. Here’s what the “What’s My Name” singer told People Magazine about her new venture.

“Over the years, I layered many different scents to get something that was truly my own,” Rihanna tells People. “But I wanted… something that said ‘Rihanna was here.’ Something delicious and special, a fragrance with subtle hints that linger and leave a sexy memory.”

That’s well and good, but what does her signature scent smell like? According to reports, the structure has red berries, purple plum and peach. At the heart are Hawaiian hibiscus flower, violet, tuberose and coconut water. The base is formed by vanilla, patchouli, amber and musk. In other words, you’ll smell like fruit salad lost in the Hawaiian jungle. Sounds delish to me.

We’re still recovering from our NYE celebrations, so we decided to take today off. In lieu of new articles, we decided to repost some of our favorite 2010 Year End List-themed posts from this year. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE.

WOO HOO. DJ Earworm finally released his yearly mashup of the 25 biggest hits from 2010. I’ve been checking his website on a daily basis since Christmas, waiting for this year’s masterpiece. Once again, the talented mashup artist didn’t disappoint. It always amazes me how much patience he has to, not only whip up the audio mashup, but the visual one as well.

While the 2010 mashup is good and will receive heavy rotation on my playlist, I’m more partial to last year’s creation. When I first saw last year’s video, my jaw literally hit the ground. I had never seen anything like it so well done before. I think the reason why I’m not oohing and aahing this year, is due to the high level of expectation I had for the poor guy. Judge for yourself and see if I’m being overly critical. Watch this year and last year’s mashups below and vote on which one was better.

Susan Boyle To Sing At Royal Wedding?

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

If Simon Cowell gets his way, then yes. The former American Idol Judge told Extra that the YouTube singing sensation would be an ideal choice to sing at Prince William & Kate Middleton’s Royal Wedding in April. He also added Susan Boyle’s version of “Dreamed a Dream” would be the perfect choice for a wedding song. Personally, “Back That Ass Up” would a much better idea. It’ll throw everyone off and add a little flava to the mix. I kid.

So what makes Cowell such an expert on this topic. Apparently, the acerbic judge and Prince William are “friends” and he noted the royals are fans of “X-Factor“. Here’s what he said

“I’m actually friends with Prince Harry. Well, I wouldn’t say friends, per se, but he’s come down to the show,” Cowell said. “He and I get along very well. He’s a very, very nice guy. I like him a lot.”

After topping the charts two weeks ago with “What’s My Name?“, Rihanna reclaimed the top spot from Far East Movement with her lead cut, “Only Girl (In The World)” from her “Loud” album. It’s the first time in Billboard Hot 100 history, that a lead single hit No. 1 after the second single did. “Only Girl” is the Bajan artist’s ninth No. 1 track.

Proving she’s a singles artist and not so much a record artist, Rihanna’s first week sales of her latest CD, “Loud” debuted in third place behind Susan Boyle and “America’s Got Talent’s” Jackie Evancho’s respective albums. Despite all the hype, Rihanna only moved 207,000 copies of “Loud”. As low as that number sounds, it still marks her best U.S. chart sales debut to date. She’ll have to haul some major ass if she intends of beating her previous best effort when “Good Girl, Gone Bad” sold 2,616,000 in the US.

As mentioned earlier, Rihanna is the first artist ever to have her lead single top the charts after her official second single. “Only Girl” is her ninth single overall and her fourth in 2010. It makes her the first female artist ever to hit the top spot four times in a calendar year. The last artist, male or female, to achieve this feat was Usher in 2004.

Rihanna Sizzles In Bold “Interview” Pics

In: Donovan, Fashion, Music

For Interview Magazine’s December/January issue, a short red-haired Rihanna works it out for fashion photographer Mikael Jansson. Rihanna oozes sex appeal from a bygone decade. I’m thinking the 70s, given the styling choices. Those are some sexy shades she’s sporting on the cover. When I first saw her cover for the holiday issue of Marie Claire I loved it. But in light of these new pics, they seem rather boring when compared to Interview’s fashion editorial.

The Bajan beauty doesn’t only pose in fabulous couture for the issue, but she’s also interviewed by her labelmate and friend, Kanye West. Boy, did the record label score in killing two birds with one stone with this promotional effort. The piece Kanye did for Interview Magazine is titled “The Colorful Art of Being Rihanna“. As a writer/rapper/producer he is exceptional, as an interviewer… not so much. He doesn’t really ask anything profound and sticks to a color-by-numbers interviewing line of questioning. Given they are friends, I would’ve expected something a bit juicier. Perhaps Rihanna’s people put some really tight restrictions on Interview and Kanye before the interview.
