Rihanna Hides In Hawaii As Chris Brown Denies Leaking Naked Photos

Rihanna has allegedly jetted to Hawaii after embarassing naked pictures, rumored to be of the starlet, leaked onto the web late last week. The singer is reportedly “freaking out” over the images, which show her posing in a hotel bathroom. The woman pictured in the photos has not been confirmed as Rihanna, and the NY Daily News wisely points out that her many tattoos are not visible on the lovely lady pictured. But so far Rihanna’s reps are not denying that the photos are real. Hmmm – kinda makes ya wonder!

Chris Brown, who seems like a logical suspect in the leak, is denying any involvment in the photo scandal. The singer and alleged batterer released a statement to Essence magazine through his rep, stating, “This is both a false and defamatory statement. Chris has not released or ‘leaked’ any photos of Rihanna or anybody else for that matter.”

‘Control Freak’ Beyonce Keeps Sane With Meditation

Beyonce Knowles has managed to become one of the biggest global stars in the world without anyone really knowing very much about her at all (take note, Lindsay Lohan!) But in a new interview with the U.K. Times newspaper, she lets her famous guard down a bit and reveals that she has to work hard to avoid becoming a lunatic superstar.

“I meet celebrities, and at one point, I thought, like, everybody was crazy. Then I met some really level-headed, grounded people, who are more grounded and cool than people who don’t have all the pressure of celebrity. And I think my way of meditation, of keeping my sanity, is from the way that I analyze. It’s really easy to fall into your own world, really, really easy. Every day, it’s something that you have to be aware of, because there are always people who are opportunists, who will tell you anything,” she says.

Bey admits later on to being “more of a control freak than most” who’s trying “not to put anything on my calendar for a year from now — because I’ve never not had that.” Sounds like a good idea. And if we were a control-freak A-list married superstar, we might think some time off could work for a baby … hm? [Photo: ]

Susan Boyle Turned Down Obama

The cream of the entertainment world were whooping it up at the Correspondent’s Dinner in Washington over the weekend, but amazingly, the world’s current biggest star (ahem) wasn’t there. No, Susan Boyle, the Britain’s Got Talent/YouTube superstar, turned down an invite from President Barack Obama to attend the bash, because she was too nervous.

“She was shocked and thrilled by the invite — but it was all too much too soon for her so she said no,” says a source.  What, a thrust-into-the-limelight normal person who actually decides to take this fame thing as slowly and carefully as possible? Surely not.

Heidi Klum And Seal’s Redneck Wedding

heidi-klum-seal-wedding

Heidi Klum and Seal looked to an unexpected source for the theme of their annual wedding renewal vows this weekend. The so-in-love-it’s-sickening couple got dressed up as “white trash” for the party in Malibu, with Heidi rocking some delightful cornrows and Seal sporting a mullet complete with frosted highlights. Guests like Debra Messing wore matching pink bandanas, and earlier in the day, pregnant Heidi (who’s expecting another girl) was spotted flashing her belly for photogs wearing short shorts.

It’s all too cute and post-modern for words but the last time we saw celebrity wedding photos like this, it was back in 2004. Yep, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline’s legendary nuptials with the cheeseburgers at the reception, the Pimps and Maids matching tracksuits and Brit’s skimpy lace wedding dress. Good times!

Amy’s Comeback Gig A Predictable Disaster

Oh, Amy, Amy, Amy. The more things change (swapping Camden for St Lucia, swapping Blake Incarcerated for island guys), the more things stay the same.  We can’t remember the last performance that didn’t end in a slurring mess, and Amy Winehouse much-anticipated comeback gig at the St Lucia Jazz Festival was no exception.

Flashing her knickers, barely being able to stand up and stumbling across the stage was bad enough, but Amy also managed to forget the words to her songs and announce to the crowd, “I’m just kind of bored.” A power cut then briefly stopped the concert, but Amy didn’t notice and instead reportedly slumped to the floor. Watch the video of the fiasco above, and wonder whether this is the worst, most premature “comeback” ever. We’ve said it before many many times, but this girl needs serious help.

Rihanna Allegedly Caught Up In Nude Photo Scandal

rihanna-nude-photo1
The Internet is on fire with people searching for leaked photos of two of today’s most popular singers in the nude. First up was Cassie, who cleverly dismissed the topless photos of her that were spread by a hacker by quipping: “Stop acting like you haven’t seen a titty before.” Now it’s alleged that naked photos have hit the Internet of an even bigger star — Rihanna. Will this be the one-two punch that finally blows the roof off of some giant Google data center?

All of the nude Rihanna photos appear to have been taken by the singer herself. But some are questioning whether the photos — or at least some of the photos — are of a look-alike. If the photos are real, we think what Rihanna scribbled onto the bathroom mirror is the most interesting detail about the pictures. Look closely: It says, “I Love You. Miss You.”

Who is Rihanna addressing? Her ex Chris Brown? Her other ex, from Barbados, who she recently hooked back up with? Or someone we aren’t yet aware of? Stay tuned for a Rihanna statement about these leaked images. Her camp will have to respond somehow, right?

All of the nude Rihanna photos appear to have been taken by the singer herself. Aside from the fact that we’ve learned that both Rihanna and Cassie have nipple rings this week, we think the note that Rihanna has scribbled onto the bathroom mirror is the most interesting detail of these pictures. Look closely. It says, “I Love You. Miss You.”

Who is she addressing? Her ex Chris Brown? Or her other ex, from Barbados, who she recently hooked back up with? Or someone we aren’t yet aware of? Stay tuned for a Rihanna response to the leaked images. Her camp will have to make some kind of statement, right?
