Taylor Momsen seriously has a death wish, or at least a slapped-upside-the-head wish. In her new interview with SPIN magazine, Taylor once again suffers a severe attack of verbal diarrhea, this time expounding on her weirdly antagonistic feelings toward Rihanna. Thoughts like, “People think pop is rock, and the lines are getting blurred. Now Rihanna’s wearing f*ckin’ leather jackets, and it’s really annoying.” OMG, Taylor.
First of all, we forgot Momsen owns the patent on leather jackets. Glad we cleared that up. Second of all, girl-child please. Taylor is clearly forgetting the most cardinal rule of trash talk etiquette. You do not rip on a woman with a neck tattoo. Period. There is nothing more rock than a neck tat, end of story. And if said woman’s tattoo may or may not be misspelled? Look, we’ve all seen Rihanna dance on a tank; you think she wouldn’t drive that thing into the side of your house?
17-year-old Momsen also held hold court on her particular brand of fashion, describing her signature ripped-fishnets-and bleachy-blonde mop look as “high-class hooker,” undoubtedly drawing the ire of actual high-class hookers the world over. “I dress for myself,” Taylor said. “Clearly, it’s provocative, but it makes me feel good. And if the only reason it makes someone uncomfortable is because I’m 17, then that person’s a scumbag because it shouldn’t matter.”
You heard it here first, folks. Only scumbags feel skeeved out by Taylor’s constantly-visible underwear and towering Frankenstein heels. Now if you’ll excuse us, there’s a National Scumbags of America meeting we are guest-speaking at tonight, and we don’t want to get caught in traffic. [Photo: Getty Images/Splash News Online]
It’s possible Rihanna was just being her ridiculous self showing up at London’s Mahiki nightclub wrapped in a blanket this weekend, but we prefer to assume she was wearing an outfit so smoking hot that the fire marshal demanded she put out the fashion flames with this drab wrap, lest we singe our eyebrows staring at the little pink number poking out from the top. See more photos of the singer in the gallery below.
Forget Rihanna and her crazy outfits. The singer showed up at Dodgers Stadium to watch boyfriend Matt Kemp play baseball, looking like every other girlfriend who watches her man from the stands. Sporting a Dodgers hoodie, RiRi and her pals got into the game, cheering for Kemp’ homerun hit with more fervor than were used to seeing from the singer. Pics below.
Rihanna strutted the red carpet and performed at the Kids’ Choice Awards in two very different ’80s-inspired ensembles. Posing for the paps, she donned a light pink shoulder-padded dress, nude pumps, and shimmery bobby socks. For her “Hard” performance, RiRi rocked a girly hot pink dress juxtaposed with lace-up military boots. Each get-up was edgy in its own right, but which look did you prefer? [Photos: Getty Images]
When do we care about Germany’s Echo Awards? When Rihanna shows up wearing a lowwwwww-cut green one-piece suitable for both super-villainy and a night at home with the Golden Girls. Though her performance of “Rude Boy” was pretty awesome—if only because she had to flirt with giant, slow-moving sci-fi robots—Rihanna’s repeated failures to match Lady Gaga in fashion forwardness was underlined by Gaga (who didn’t bother attending) picking up four trophies while Rih-Rih went home with nothing.
Watch Rihanna and the robots shake to “Rude Boy” in the clip below, and soak up our favorite water nymph along with Ke$ha, Sade and Robbie Williams in the red carpet gallery.
What do you get the woman that has it all? Well if she loves Rihanna’s shoulder pads and Rihanna’s giant fur hats, why not consider Rihanna’s new leather jacket, featuring both shoulder pads and an enormous fur hood? Now she can striking and chic while keeping her ears ridiculously warm, just like the “Rude Boy” singer earlier today in London. Somebody tell Todd Palin, because every Alaskan businesswoman is going to want one of these for her birthday.
Lady Gaga isn’t the only fashion-forward pop singer and don’t you forget it! Rihanna took the stage at last night’s Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam in an outfit that split the difference between lingerie and shoulder-padded bodysuit, tastefully accessorized with goggles and a sword. Click here to watch her sing “Russian Roulette” and other hits at last night’s concert, as well as performances by Justin Bieber and Timbaland.
What a difference a year makes. Last year, Clive Davis‘ annual pre-Grammy bash was Rihanna‘s prelude to a horrific night of domestic violence with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. It has since been a year of ups and downs for the stunning pop star, but thankfully she has emerged a stronger woman, and we can now shamelessly shred her fashion choices. So let’s get to it.
Though it’s impossible for RiRi’s face to look anything but gorgeous, it was hidden behind that veil of aqua tulle! The monstrously starched sleeve resembled a sea sponge and completely distracted from her natural beauty. We’re hoping she opts for something more simplistic and flattering at tonight’s main event.
Despite her questionable ensemble, Rihanna seemed to have a good time at the party sharing laughs with pal Katy Perry and her fiance Russell Brand. She also hung out with Usher, Fergie, and Taylor Swift, and Ciara, who hilariously coordinated in an equally-oversized outfit. [Photo: Getty Images]
