It’s gotten to the point that we’ve honestly forgotten what Rihanna looks like wearing a shirt. She probably looks…good? We imagine? Riri looks great not wearing a shirt obviously, which is probably why her Week of Nakedness continues today with photos of her upcoming Esquire UK photo spread. “Ain’t like me, dat bitch too phony,” the singer boasts along with photos of herself clad in black lingerie, whistle and/or military dog tags, which we guess could technically count as 1/50 of a shirt? Maybe? As for her cover photo, RiRi says, “They can say whateva, ima do whatever.” Yeah, we guess “whateva” rarely requires you to wear a turtleneck…
On the other hand, if we had to compare them RiRi’s Esquire pics are downright demure next to those in her nude perfume campaign, posted by her pal Melissa Forde. “I got a big shoot tomorrow for a surprise fragrance for my ladies called… NUDE! Bye bye dreadz, for NOW!” Rihanna tweeted about the pics. “Oh, and clothes,” she added. “Bye bye clothes, for EVER!” Okay, so Rihanna didn’t say actually that last part with words. But she did said it with her totally commitment to nudity. She said it…with her totally topless heart.
Whoa. We’ve heard Anne Hathaway sing a bit before. And we’ve seen her with that haircut. But we’re not sure any of that prepared us for her powerful “I Dreamed a Dream” performance in the teaser trailer for Les Miserables. (It seriously just sent me into flashbacks of dramatically waving fake French flags around our childhood living room and re-enacting all the dying scenes from the musical.) At the same time, the trailer adds a level of sophisticated movie magic that almost makes you forget this story has been told countless times since Victor Hugo first published his novel in 1862. That makes us extra excited for the movie’s December release, and for that reason, we’d like to cheer up Fantine, Jean Valjean and Co. Here are at least eight things that should make them just a little less miserable:
You guys can keep ogling those pics we posted yesterday of Gabrielle Union taking in the Miami heat, or admire Kate Upton’s design skill as she posed for her very own line of bikinis. We’ll be over here awwwing over the pics Jamie Lynn SpearsInstagram’d of her and 3-year-old daughter Maddie Briann Aldridge on Sunday with the simple captions “#poolday” and “#littlegirls #littlemoments.”
After years away from the spotlight following her scandalous pregnancy at age 16, Jamie Lynn has been getting back in the music biz lately. She performed a bunch of original songs in Nashville (where she now lives) last November and said she’d be releasing a country album this year. She split from Maddie’s father, Casey Aldridge, in 2009, and has since been raising her daughter with the help of her family.
The Snow White And The Huntsman trailers already had the 13-year-old Goth inside of us doodling dragons and ogres in her science notebook. Interview Magazine‘s dark and dreamy take on the film’s stars Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron just put more of an adult edge to the gothic fairy tale. If we hadn’t been on board with the burgundy lips and dark couture, they got us with the whole “1920s androgynous lounging tuxedo” look later on. Click past the jump if you want to see what we’re talking about, but please swallow any fluids you might have in your mouth first. You will involuntarily gasp with perfection.
In addition to looking fierce, it seems like KStew and Charlize are also fiercely loyal toward each other. “She is unlike anyone I’ve ever encountered. She is one of those people who walks into a room and everyone knows it,” Kristen tells the magazine about Theron, adding, “Charlize and I do kind of have similar approaches. We only had a few days together, but we both are absolutely willing to hurt ourselves to do what it takes to get the right feeling, and not all actors are like that. Most actors like to be really comfy.” Praised Charlize, “I’ve been very lucky to work with some great women who know how to hit the ball back really hard. Even the younger girls, like Kristen Stewart, I never look at them that way. I love having women like that in my life.” Meanwhile, we love having these women in our lives. And when when you throw some fishnet veils and smoking jackets into the mix? Perfection.
Trying to keep up with Rihanna’s relationship rumors is like trying to keep track of the most complex soap opera in human history. The “We Found Love” singer seems to find new love about as often as the rest of us change socks. At least it you believe the tabloids, that is. For all we really know, Rihanna could be living the life of a nun…a very scantily clad nun. But barely a week goes by when a story of Riri’s new alleged hookup comes spiraling out into the gossip universe, and this long weekend wasn’t any different.
It’s all too much! So to help you make sense of the swirling vortex that we call Rihanna’s speculative love-life, we’ve assembled this helpful (and very thorough) timeline of all her hookups and relationships, both real and imagined. Enjoy!
From what we can tell, David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis is not the side-splitting comedy of the summer. And yet, the photos coming out of the photocall and premiere of the film at Cannes make it seem like the fest’s funniest event yet. Maybe that’s due to star Robert Pattinson’s relentless red-carpet face-making. Or due to the fact that it was pouring at the premiere, and the celebrities in attendance, like Julianna Margulies, could do nothing but laugh at how drenched their gorgeous gowns were getting.
Other random celebs mugging for the cameras at the premiere included Cuba Gooding Jr., Bonnie Wright and Kelly Rutherford. Model Natasha Poly showed the most daring amount of skin at the event, but she had a surprising rival in the side-boob game: none other than Kristen Stewart, in a plunging red Reem Acra stunner. She arrived ahead of her boyfriend and was instead on the arm of pal (and her On the Road co-star) Tom Sturridge.
Sorry, Bravo, that we haven’t been tuning in for Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding. It’s just, well, the name instantly puts Kim Zolciak’s godawful “song” in our heads. Which, we know, is exactly the point. Anyway, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s wedding planning spin-off certainly caught our attention this week, when the 34-year-old decided on a clever gift for her fiance, Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann: getting his football jersey painted on her naked torso for a sexy photo shoot. This is actually way sweeter and more personalized than mere lingerie, don’t you think? Also, weirder.
Anyway, the photos got us thinking about all the other lovely ladies who’ve been using their bodies as canvases of late — though actually, for not as sweet reasons. Rihanna did it for her recent “Where Have You Been” video. Heidi Klum did it for an Astor ad. Ashley Greene did it for Sobe. (None of them went for the same wrinkly shirt illusion as Kim, either, by the way.) Which is your favorite look?
And so it begins. Britney Spears showed up to her first day of work as an X Factor judge today, armed with a hot pink mini dress and bizarre fiance/conservator combo Jason Trawick. Despite rumors of nerves, she looked confident and composed as she made her way to the first round of auditions in Austin this afternoon. In fact, we think she looks great! Looks like fellow reality judge Howard Stern isn’t going to get the train-wreck he was hoping for.
Maybe Brit got a call from former X Factor judge (and Pussycat Doll) Nicole Scherzinger! Our very own Janell Snowdon recently caught up with the lovely Nicole, and the singer offered some soothing words on how Britney and Demi Lovato can make the most of their time on the show. “Speak from your heart,” she says. “Just be you. That’s what Simon always told me, ‘Just be you.’” Check out the full interview in the video above, and more photos from Britney’s first day in the gallery below!
-Orange who? -Audrina Patridge showed off her super toned body in an orange bikini today!
Damn it, we screwed that joke up. But the fact remains that the former Hills star and swim suit connoisseur looked amazing as she hit the beaches of Cabo in a loud orange bikini. Audrina was joined by boyfriend Corey Bohan on her south of the border vacation, which is apparently to celebrate her 27th birthday. Her birthday was on the 9th, so we guess she’s just taking the whole month off. Head to the gallery below for more sexy fun in the sun!
How did our list of 50 Rihanna Hairstyles get out of date so fast? We just can’t keep up with her stylists! After sporting bleached blond locks for most of the spring, Rihanna last switched up her hairstyle with a half-shaved head two months ago, a period of time that translates into 5,000 years for regular people hairdos. Not immediately adding Rihanna’s brand new dreads, which the singer posted to Instagram today, is a disservice to everyone as obsessed with her ever-mutating hotness as we are, and for that we apologize. But also? You’re welcome for keeping you abreast of all late-breaking RiRi beauty updates.
“Wake bake shake dem dreads,” RiRi tweeted along with the photo. That doesn’t sound like the best way to get her vocal chords in order to perform at the American Idol finale tonight, but if anyone knows how much sleeping, baking and shaking her larynx can tolerate, it’s RiRi. The “Where Have You Been All My Life?” singer will be singing alongside Aerosmith, Gladys Knight and (you might be able to hear us screaming later) Reba McEntire. Ohhh, obviously RiRi switched up her hair because she wanted a fresh hotness to show Reba. We completely understand. We would have done the exact same thing, given the opportunity.
