Watch Rihanna’s Dior Short Film In Full

In: Donovan, Fashion

Though I’m not opposed to it, I’ve never done drag before. Surprising, right? However, after watching Rihanna’s Dior Secret Garden short film in full, I kinda want to put on a pair of designer heels and a glittery Dior dress on, with the caveat that I get to roam around the Palace of Versailles all by myself.

Seriously! RiRi looks like she’s having a blast walking through those majestic hallways adorned with regal chandeliers. There’s really not much of a narrative to the longer version but it’s an entertaining watch. Check out the Steven Klein-directed clip below, featuring “A Night” which will appear on her forthcoming album.

Rihanna Debuts Dior Video Ad Campaign

In: Donovan, Fashion

As previously mentioned, Rihanna is the newest celebrity face for Dior. She becomes the first woman of color to become an official spokesperson for the French label since the house launched seven decades ago. Last week, the print campaign surfaced online and now the video ad has debuted.

Like the still images, the 27-year-old is serving major eleganza in the accompanying clip. Steven Klein who helmed the shoot also directs the visual which was filmed at France’s Palace of Versailles.

“Rihanna‘s mystery and intrigue combined with her razor-sharp looks and sensibility, are the essential, perfect elements to create the stage for Secret Garden.” – Steven Klein

The clip also features a snippet of RiRi’s intro song off her forthcoming eighth studio album. “If Only For A Night” heavily samples a Florence + The Machine track with a similar name. Give the clip a view below. It’s very reminiscent of Beyonce’s “Partition” visual but more high fashion and less booty dropping ;)

It’s hard to believe, but no woman of color has ever been named the face of Dior since the house launched seven decades ago. Rihanna becomes the first to do so. The Bajan singer joins actresses Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence, and Marion Cotillard as current faces of the brand.

The 27-year-old is simply stunning for the French fashion label. The campaign, titled “Secret Garden IV,” was shot France’s Palace of Versailles. Several images snapped by Steven Klein have leaked online showcasing RiRi serving major eleganza.

The accompanying video will feature a track titled “A Night” which features a sample of Florence + The Machine’s “Only If for A Night.” Check out the print campaign below.

Rihanna Rocks Bright Eye Shadow For V Magazine

In: Donovan, Fashion

It’s all about color for Rihanna on the latest cover of V Magaizne. The 27-year-old fashion icon rocks some seriously bright eye shadow for photographer Steven Klein and not much else.

Once again, the “FourFiveSeconds” singer poses topless. Hell, if you got it, flaunt it. Her body isn’t going stay young and perky forever.

The vibrant spread is a bit retro with a dash of Caribbean chulo for good measure. Check out more pics below from the publication’s Summer 2015 issue along with a few quotes from the accompanying interview.

On Her Upcoming Album

“Dude, I’m in love with my interludes. This one called ‘James,’ joint is on constant repeat. [The album is] soulful and aggressive, whether it’s lyrically, musically, or just the tone of my voice.”

Rihanna has never had an issue not expressing her opinions. The 27-year-old singer is very outspoken to say the least. With that being said, I can’t remember if she’s ever been so political. On the heels of RiRi speaking out against Indiana’s religious freedom law, she releases a powerful politically-charged music video.

American Oxygen” debuted exclusively on TIDAL earlier this morning. The visual shows the Barbadian singer in front of a giant American flag while footage of memorable moments are shown in between.

The civil rights movement, Obama’s inauguration, Ferguson protests, 9/11 attacks, Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech and the landing on the moon are among the many moments included. Check out the patriotic clip below.

Rihanna & Beyonce Debut New Tracks On TIDAL

In: Donovan, Music

Jay-Z launched his new music streaming service TIDAL with great fanfare earlier this week. Since then, the Whites Stripes, Daft Punk, Todd Rundgren, Alicia Keys and more have released exclusive content on the site. Beyonce and Rihanna are the latest artists to upload new music to entice people to subscribe to the new service.

Queen Bey released a ballad dedicated to her husband titled “Die With You.” Fittingly enough, it was the same day the couple celebrated their seven-year anniversary. Bey wears a ball cap while playing the piano in the simple visual. Once again, the 33-year-old went the DIY route. Jay-Z filmed the entire clip himself with no camera crew.

RiRi finally premiered “American Oxygen” in full after performing it live on the second day of the March Madness Music Festival. The Alex Da Kid-produced track is my favourite new offering from Rihanna this era. Still not feeling “Bitch Better Have My Money.” Are you? Check out both new tracks below.

Can we first address the eyebrows? Holy Brooke Shields circa the 1980s. I’m obsessed!!!

Didn’t love Rihanna dabbling with folk on “FourFiveSeconds?” You’re not alone, many in her Navy weren’t feeling the polarizing lead cut. Fear not, ratchet RiRi is back with her new single “Bitch Better Have My Money.” The 27-year-old released her latest song on the selfie video app, Dubsmash.

#BBHMM was co-written by Rihanna and Bibi Bourelly features production by DePuTy. It’s the official second single off her highly-anticipated eighth studio album, tentatively titled R8. It’ll be released this year via her new label imprint Westbury Road Records.

Personally, I was hoping for more of a dance pop number, but don’t mind the urban vibe. I’m still waiting, however, for the full-version of “American Oxygen.” In the meantime, check it out “Bitch Better Have My Money” below.

Rihanna Drops Two New Tracks From Home Soundtrack

In: Donovan, Music

Personally, I was hoping the full version of “American Oxygen” would leak first. That’s a potential smash in the making. Instead, two more contributions from Rihanna off the Home soundtrack have arrived. Surprisingly, I’m leaning towards the ballad more than the uptempo track.

As Real As You And Me” was co-written by RiRi and produced by Rodney Jerkins. The 27-year-old’s slow jams often get overshadowed by her club bangers. “Take A Bow” and “Stay” are among her finest moments, if you ask me. This new one, ranks up there.

The second track, titled “Dancing In The Dark,” isn’t a Bruce Springsteen cover, but rather an original composition from long-time collaborate Ester Dean. It’s nice but nothing that immediately jumps out. I suppose it’s suitably fitted for an animated film soundtrack. Check out both tracks below.
