Wardrobe changes are a crucial part of award shows, but unlike Rihanna, not many of last night’s Grammy stars had THREE separate outfits up their sleeves. The frequent red carpet dweller dazzled on arrival, adhering to CBS and the Recording Academy’s newest wardrobe wishes, while still leaving the threat of a visible underboob alive and well via her two performance ensembles. But did the 2013 Grammy Awards feature her best award show looks yet?
Valentine’s Day came early this year, as some of the hottest couples in the music biz took a stroll down the red carpet at the 2013 Grammy Awards. Musicians aren’t known for ever being short on arm candy, but this year’s ceremony seemed even more paired off than normal. Seriously, if you were invited the Grammys and you didn’t take your boo, you’re gonna be in the doghouse til next year!
Thanks to the rise of ultra snarky shows like Fashion Police, Hollywood’s A-List movie stars work their hardest during the 3-month slog that is Awards Season to stay out of the crosshairs of Joan Rivers and her band of catty cronies. Thankfully, our favorite musicians like Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Cee-Lo Green have no such qualms about making a genuine fashion statement on Grammy night.
It’s a crazy mixed up uncertain world out there, but there’s one thing we know for sure: Rihanna will always steal the show on the red carpet! The good girl gone bad is known for her huge style and tiny outfits, and she never fails to win the prize for sexiest attire at every awards show. The dress she wore to the Grammys last year left us with heart palpitations, and we can’t wait to see what she shows up in on Sunday. To get us in the mood, we’ve painstakingly assembled her 30 hottest award show styles of all time!
See that big red cirle in the photograph above? That’s Rihanna sitting and listening intently to the proceedings during Chris Brown‘s court hearing yesterday. As you know, he was hauled back into court because it was believed that Brown had not completed his community service properly last year. Here’s the interesting part — Brown was required to do community service as a part of his sentence for assaulting Rihanna back in 2009. And here she is, with him in court to listen to his team swear that he did his time? It’s an odd sort of full circle, isn’t it? His team came prepared, too, considering Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, was on the offensive from the get-go. He went off at a press conference stating, “I have never had a client who has been tortured like Chris Brown has” adding, “The D.A. is paralyzed with the thought his probation will be terminated. If that happens they won’t be able to jock him around like they’ve been jocking him around.”
In court, Geragos fought back against allegations that Chris had lied about completing his required 180 hours of community service by presenting legal documents including invoices and other proof showing that his client had paid $31,534.70 to the Richmond PD for security during his service. The D.A had stated that Brown hadn’t done so. Geragos also presented various documents that showed proof that Brown had done service at various police departments. This is just the start of it, because there are still a lot of accusations against Chris, one being that his mother had filled out his hours and his team had tampered with the details. But Geragos insists that he’s on the job and so far, ”what we’ve uncovered so far should shock the conscience of the court. And this is only the tip of the iceberg.” This should be interesting.

This Life & Style headline about Rihanna being the real reason behind Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s breakup made us chuckle … at first. We really have a hard time believing that RiRi and Justin were seeing each other as far back as 2010 — when the Biebs looked practically prepubescent (no offense) — as L&S claims. (It’s much more believable now, though; have you seen these abs?)
In a lengthy post on his private Instagram, Chris Brown complained about how people keep telling him to relax all the time and ignore what people are saying about him, his fight with Frank Ocean and the latest news that prosecutors believe he violated probation by not completing his community service.
Maybe his perpetual Rihanna-Karrueche love triangle wasn’t the real cause of Chris Brown’s tears last night. Instead, it could have to do with the ups and downs of his criminal record. He received good news yesterday, in the form of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department announcing they were closing the investigation into his alleged parking lot scuffle with Frank Ocean.
Breezy is bummed, y’all. Leaving L.A.’s Greystone Manor night club in the wee hours of Monday morning, Chris Brown was spotted getting all misty eyed. We can’t be sure, but it might have had something to do with the fact that his rumored lady love Rihanna had stormed out on her own a few minutes before. Just a thought. It sounded like a pretty uncomfortable night out for all concerned as Brown’s ex-Karrueche Tran also showed up at the very same night club, on the arm of another dude. Jeez you guys, Los Angeles is a pretty big city. Why does this damn love triangle keep partying at the same places!? All this awkwardness could have totally been avoided if they’d just checked in on Foursquare.
Whatever the case, and whatever his relationship status, emotion seemed to get the better of Brown as he was seen in tears being driven away from the club with his entourage, but without a lady. Riri for her part seemed calm, cool and collected as she made her way out into the parking lot wearing a short red mini skirt and rockin’ her help semi-shaved hairdo. It’s unknown at this time what went down between the two love rivals inside the club, but it definitely seemed like the were too close for comfort! Did Breezy freak because Karrueche has a new man? Did Rihanna catch them stealing a moment together? We suspect that we’ll have some kind of Twitter update from Ri shortly. Did Chris just blow his one chance of “not f–king up again” with Rihanna? We’ll see!
