Rihanna showed up at the 2009 Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards in a very unusual Stephane Rolland gown. Some have likened it to vertical blinds, others to origami. Some say she looks like she got caught in a paper shredder, while others think it’s taking the Memoirs of a Geisha thing a little too far.
What do we think? We think she looks hot, as usual. Sure, it’s a gown unlike anything we’ve ever seen, but isn’t that the point of making a fashion statement? It fits her like a glove, has a very sexy back (click through the gallery to check it out), and is a moving work of art. As per usual, Riri nails it.
Agree or disagree?

If I made a really crappy movie starring Jessica Alba, but she plays a prostitute and there’s one scene where she gets her ass spanked in bed, I’d go very very far out of my way to make sure that clip ‘leaked’ to the internet well in advance of the movie. And made sure animated GIFs and YTMNDs of the clip also ‘leaked’ to the internet. And that the entire trailer for the movie was that clip and the release date.
Then I would be all, “Oh no I can’t believe that clip of Jessica Alba’s ass getting spanked, which happens in our movie that opens on this date, leaked to the internet! Dearie me we are going to have to pull that clip off the internet and spank the people who put it up even harder than Jessica Alba gets spanked in the clip itself, in which her bare ass is also visible.
On the other hand, Casey Affleck is in the film (as the titular character, Dr. Spankenstein), and he was in like nine good movies in 2007, so maybe the movie’s actually alright. Also, Jessica Alba gets her ass spanked in the film, so there’s that too.
I don’t think we can embed the Killer Inside Me clip (I’m still not sure if we have rules / human decency here at VH1, it’s kind of a gray area), so click the image below to watch the scene:
You mean a sex tape doesn’t bond you for life?!?! During a recent interview, Ray J was asked about his past romances with Kim Kardashian and Whitney Houston. Ray J had all kind things to say about the singer, gushing about how they are still friends, but of Kim he simply referred to her as that “other girl.” Burn!
Almost a year after the tragic death of their son Jett, John Travolta and Kelly Preston took their daughter Ella Bleu to the red carpet premiere of Old Dogs in Hollywood last night. All three appear in the film, with Ella making her movie debut. “I want to see her have a fruitful career,” said Travolta last year. “I really think it’s time to introduce her, sort of like Will Smith introduced his son.” Among the attendees were co-stars Robin Williams and Seth Green, though no one appeared more excited about the movie than Billy Idol. Does the ’80s rocker just love family comedies or something? “Awwrrriiiiiight! Old bachelors learning how to be responsible daddies! Yeah!!!”
Donny Osmond is still lightly stroking ass as a competitor on Telemundo’s ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. But last night, he took performance to an entirely new level. Now, a regular person might watch this and think “what the f*ck was he thinking?” But a tone-deaf, new wave, musical theater loving Mexican vampire would watch this, very quietly scribble something down, and then very slowly hold up this sign:
You know who else loves it? LATOYA JACKSON. As evidenced by her reanimated hands clapping away towards the end of the clip.
Rapper Lil Boosie, best known for appearing on hits like “Wipe Me Down” and “Independent,” was sentenced to four years in prison yesterday for violating probation. Already set for a two year stint for possession of marijuana and illegal firearms, the sentence was doubled when his ankle bracelet revealed he’d repeatedly broken the conditions of his house arrest. His latest album, Superbad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz, was released less than two months ago.
Attending last month’s BET Hip-Hop Awards with his daughter (pictured above), Boosie appeared defiant, believing he’d only be in prison for a year. “It’s just a minor setback for a major comeback. I was gonna take ‘em to trial, but I’m not gonna take them to trial. They offered me a deal. In Louisiana, you can’t really win, bruh. So I’m gonna do my year, come back home, step it up even more.” Boosie began serving his term immediately after yesterday’s court hearing.
Joss Stone has opinions, people, and don’t we know it. The singer opened fire onLily Allen last week and has now made that ill-advised dis look tame. In a journalist’s dream interview – it’s stuffed full of fantastic quotes – Joss holds forth on just about everything. Including Amy Winehouse (as if she doesn’t want to make any more friends, thanks).
On avoiding the drugs trap: “You’ve got to have a lack of intelligence to do that to yourself. I think it’s stupid. Amy’s music is beautiful, her lyrics are f**king great, but she has to start loving the music more than she loves herself and the drugs.”
On, er, taking drugs herself: “I smoke weed, but I don’t think it’s really a drug. It’s more of a herb. I don’t regret saying that at all. I think everyone smokes weed and people who say they don’t are lying! Weed has been given this evil stamp, but how is it dangerous? It’s going to make you laugh your arse off? You might go to sleep? I think alcohol is much more harmful.”
On her ex-boyfriend, Beau Dozier: “He was a bad choice. I was 16, just a kid. It makes me angry because he wasn’t a kid, he was 25. It strikes me as weird that a 25-year-old man would even find a 16 year old attractive. I was a child.”
On her public persona: “[People] say: ‘Joss Stone – isn’t she that horrible diva bitch?’ Kenny, my guitar player, goes around and does surveys about me and people say: ‘Isn’t she crazy?’ But when he asks them why, they don’t really know.”
Actually, whatever we think of Joss’s pronouncements (where do we even start?), it’s sort of refreshing to see another star refuse to join the media-trained-into-oblivion ranks of certain other celebs.Ã‚Â Long may she talk herself into trouble! [Photo:Ã‚Â ]
Ex-Miss California Carrie Prejean appeared on Fox News yesterday to admit that her sex tape does indeed exist. “It was the biggest mistake of my life! I was sending my boyfriend at the time, who I loved and cared about, a video of me. I was a teenager at the time and never did I ever think it would come out.” TMZ, who claimed the footage was “too racy” to distribute online, says it was used by the Miss California producers to shut down her lawsuit against them.
In her book, Still Standing—with a forward by her interviewer Sean Hannity—Prejean blames her earlier comfort with nudity on the media. “Unfortunately, pornography has become mainstreamed…the envelope of what seems acceptable seems to get pushed farther and farther as more and more people are exposed to this material. The result is that girls grow up in a culture where it is hard to have an innocent, healthy, normal view of themselves, how they should behave, how they should act, and how they should dress.” Guess it took a slam from Perez Hilton to teach her otherwise.
Watch her interview with Sean Hannity after the jump. Turns out he doesn’t think sexting is that big a deal, as long as it’s between two people in love.
A good day for Justin Timberlake – he’s won a three-year restraining order against “mentally unstable” stalker Karen McNeil, all without having to turn up in court himself. The singer had originally been called to appear in person, but Timberlake’s lawyer’s explained that’s duh, what she wanted all along. McNeil was arrested on his property last month after turning up with a cab full of clothes and “personal items.”
She’d previously been arrested in the 1990s for stalkingAxl Rose. In an affadavit, Timberlake called her an “obsessed and mentally unstable stalker” whom he “does not personally know or have any relationship with.”
Robert Pattinson may do his best to convince every single girl and woman on the planet that he’s just an average schmo, but it’s so not working. In a(nother) new interview to promote New Moon, Rob claims that “if the fans were to talk to me for five minutes – the illusion would be gone!” Yes, because they would have passed out in a quivering heap and not be able to see their beloved “illusion.”
In the interview with New! magazine, Rob also addresses those rumors and admits he is a bit shy with a bar of soap: “it gets to the point where even I can’t stand the air around me. I don’t know, my personal hygiene – it’s so disgusting!” and that I’m-a-loser-with-ladies thing: “Any girl I’ve wanted to go out with in the past, I’ve lost to someone else.” You can do everything in your power to put us off you Rob, but, hey, everyone can’t get enough of your dull, stinky, hopeless self.
