Rihanna Lands Third Vogue Cover

In: Donovan, Fashion, Music

Rihanna must sell a whackload of copies for Vogue. The 25-year-old lands her third cover in just four years for the US edition of the publication. It’s her very own fashionable hat trick.

Her latest lands on newsstands on February 25. Photographed by David Sims, RiRi rocks a wide array of glamorously beaded outfits in addition to talking about her Instagram obsession and more. Check out several pics and quotes below from the March 2014 issue.

“It’s not about pain. It’s about the commitment. I say to myself, ‘I want to look like this,’ and worry about the pain later. I’ve had nights I had to tiptoe home and the balls of my feet wouldn’t even allow me to stand.”

Holy caliente Batman! Even as a homosexual, I couldn’t help but get hot and bothered watching these two sexy bitches get intimate and interactive with each other. It’s glamorous and seductive without being raunchy. That’s saying a lot considering Rihanna has a tendency to go the latter route. Remember her water twerking vid? Less is more, Rihanna. Less is more. And I’m not talking about clothing ;)

The visual for “Can’t Remember To Forget You” features Shakira and Rihanna in cleavage-revealing outfits while smoking cigars, pool lounging and plenty of wall gyrating. The Colombian singer showcases her guitar and drum prowess in a bed of water. RiRi on the other hand demonstrates how she seduces another female. The “Stay” singer caresses The Voice judge’s shapely butt. Check out the clip below, along with a behind the scenes look.

Mikky Ekko’s Stay Demo Surfaces Online

When Mikky Ekko first heard Rihanna wanted to record his track, he revealed to Digital Spy that he had reservations about recording with the Barbadian singer. It’s a good thing he brushed off his worries and collaborated with RiRi. Just like A Great Big World allowing Christina Aguilera on “Say Something,” Ekko’s co-penned “Stay” became a worldwide sensation, huge Billboard hit and spawned multiple covers. It’s also up for an award at this weekend’s Grammys.

“So when I heard Rihanna wanted to record it, it was difficult for me, but I realised it was such a magnificent opportunity. It was a huge affirmation for me. It was an opportunity to marry what I do with arguably the most visible platform on the planet. That was so cool to me, because that was the last song you’d expect.” – Mikky Ekko

Ekko’s original demo has surfaced online. As gorgeous as his solo version is, I much prefer the track as a duet. However, it’s clear that Mikky’s vocals inspired Rihanna’s recording session. The arrangement is pretty similar with the “We Found Love” singer copying Ekko’s licks and delivery. Check it out below.

As she often does, Shakira keeps it real by releasing a Spanish version of her new single, “Can’t Remember To Forget You.” For those who were hoping to hear Rihanna belt out parts en Espanol, you’ll be disappointed. The Bajan singer is missing in action on the new version. BOO. If Celine Dion can belt out a song in Mandarin for Chinese New Year, surely RiRi can attempt a couple of verses in another tongue, especially on this catchy reggae-rock track. Don’t you agree?

As much as I love the duet, I have to say, “Nunca Me Acuerdo De Olvidarte” is even more divine. Not surprisingly, it seems more natural and breezy. Even though I’m not fluent in Spanish by any means, I kinda understand the Colombian singer much more in her native tongue, than in English. Am I the only one who thinks this? Check out the new version below.

Listen To Shakira & Rihanna’s Duet

In: Donovan, Music
shakira-rihanna-cant-remember-to-forget-you

It’s a bit ska. It’s a bit Jamaican Rocksteady. It’s one hundred percent perfection. Shakira’s powerhouse collaboration with Rihanna lives up to its epic billing. Shakira, as always, sounds phenomenal with her unique and captivating voice. As for Rihanna, I’ve always liked the Barbadian singer when she’s working with an island beat. “Can’t Remember To Forget You” is nothing that’s on radio right now and that’s what makes it sound fantastic. The reggae-flavored track is something you’d imagine Bruno Mars and Sting working on.

“Can’t Remember To Forget You” was co-written by the super-talented Erik Hassle. The Swedish singer-songwriter scored a European hit with “Hurtful” back in 2008. It’s the lead single off Shakira’s forthcoming album. Shakira confirmed that the video was directed by Joseph Kahn. I can’t wait to see the visual for this duet. It’s going to be insane. Give Shakira’s new track a listen below.

When you have a collaboration as epic as Shakira and Rihanna, the above cover art just won’t do. Thankfully, this one was simply just a teaser before the official visual.

Shakira posted the single’s official artwork via Twitter and it’s as gorgeous as I had imagined and hoped for. Both ladies are wearing revealing black dresses accessorized with chunky jewelry as they cozy up with one another. It’s lounging glamor at its best. Check it out below.

Can’t Remember To Forget You” officially drops on January 13, but I fully expect it’ll leak prior to that (fingers crossed).

This shoot must’ve felt really weird for Rihanna. She’s typically not wearing this much clothing. Am I right or am I right?

“In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world,” said Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing in WWD. “When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.”

The “Diamonds” singer makes her debut as Balmain’s latest celebrity ambassador in the first batch of photos for their Spring 2014 ad campaign. RiRi channels 90s realness with her curly bob while wearing a leather jumpsuit, super sexy houndstooth suit, gold chain link top and pink kimono-like robe. Frequent Lady Gaga photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin snapped the visuals.

I have to say, I’m liking this curly coif and subtle natural-looking makeup on Rihanna. Haute couture really suits her. Let’s face it, love Rihanna, but she can sometimes look a little trashy. Check out more images below.

Rihanna Plays Psychiatrist To Eminem In The Monster

If Rihanna is the person you turn to for some psychoanalysis, I think it’s time for a wake-up call. Love me some RiRi but I can’t think of any topic I’d seriously take advice about. Perhaps boxing lessons ;) I kid (obviously).

Even without a music video, Eminem’s latest collaboration with the Bajan beauty sits atop Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Personally, it’s not my favorite, but clearly I’m in the minority. “The Monster” recently gave Rihanna her 13th chart-topper (my least favorite by far), tying her with Michael Jackson. The single also earned Slim Shady a Billboard record of his own. When it entered the charts, the Detroit rapper became the first artist since The Beatles to have four simultaneous songs in the Top 20.

In the Rich Lee-directed clip, Mr. Eight Mile plays a mental patient being observed by Rihanna. As he sits back wearing a straight jacket, flashbacks of career highlights and lowlights play out on a television. One of those snippets is his Grammy performance with Elton John. Is this his subtle way of apologizing for some hateful speech in “Rap God?” Watch the dark and moody clip below and decide for yourself.
