Note to Rihanna and Victoria Beckham: this is how you do it! Beyonceturned up at hip London hangout Bungalow 8 looking so dreamily stylish we can hardly bear it. With her shoes and bag adding some on-trend sparkle, Bey keeps it cool tone-wise with the rest of the outfit, wearing grey leggings and a summery white vest and jacket. And those shoulder-pads are just the right side of big, unlike Ri-Ri and Posh’s recent horrors. We salute you! [Photo: Splash News Online]
Rihanna continued to increase her public profile at Island Def Jam’s Spring Collection party last night, where she accepted an award for selling 12 million albums, hobnobbed with labelmates like Pete Wentz, and unveiled the video for Kanye West‘s “Paranoid.” West barely appears in the video, which instead features Rihanna in bed in lingerie, dreaming about driving angrily and laughing like a crazy person. Oh yeah—Rihanna doesn’t sing a note. Awkward?
A guerilla clip shot at the screening has been pulled from the web, but the full video is expected to be posted soon. Is Kanye exploiting her situation or just collaborating with a friend?
Rihanna spent Monday night bowling in Manhattan, but she didn’t strike out. Page Six spotted the singer smooching with Aubrey Graham, an aspiring rapper best known for playing Jimmy Brooks on DeGrassi: The Next Generation. “They were really cute together,” said their source, noting they left around midnight. Graham, Drake to Canadian rap fans, plans to release his debut album by the end of 2009. Think he’ll get her to cameo?
Wow – she does have teeth! Rihanna gave the paps a flash of those pearly whites for the first time in months yesterday in NYC. We’re so used to seeing the fierce star looking, um, pretty fierce, that we’re taken aback by this new smiling Riri. What’s her secret? Is it that she’s really pleased Shia LeBeoufhas started spouting off that they dated but the “spark wasn’t there?” Unlikely. Is it that she knows that red lipstick and that oh-so-80s jacket go amazingly well together? Maybe. Or perhaps it’s just because she’s come out the side of the Chris Brown scandal cooler and more admired than ever. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Rihanna may not have spoken out in public about her split from alleged abuser Chris Brown, but she’s got a mouthful to say in her new song. Kanye Westposted the demo, “Silly Boy,” on his blog this week, in which RiRi bashes her ex with the help of Lady GaGa. She sings:
“I said I’m not coming back. You fooled me once but you can’t have that ego turning. Just too bad for you, that when you had me. Didn’t know what to do, she’s over you. Cause you had a good girl, good girl, girl. That’s a keeper. You had a good girl, good girl but didn’t know how to treat her. So silly boy get out my face. Why do you like the way regrets taste?”
Ouch. You can listen – and download – the super-catchy song in its entirety on Kanye’s blog – click here for the goods or listen to the song below. It can’t be a coincidence that he decided to drop this track right after naked pics of the songbird leaked on the web. We know where Kanye’s loyalty lies – and now, so does Chris Brown.

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.”Ã‚Â
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?

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.”

Madonnapulled rank with Rihanna recently, after the young starlet was set to wear a pair of lace-up, Louis Vuitton boots to Monday night’s Costume Institute Gala. Madge called dibs on the stylin’ shoes and Rihanna relinquished the goods, allowing the Material Girl to put the finishing touches on her stupidest outfit ever. Unphased, RiRi wore the Vuittons to lunch at Cipriani in Manhattan yesterday.

Since busting out at the Costume Institute Ball in a tuxedo, Rihanna has made New York her personal runway this week – wearing everything from bright yellow jackets to dominatrix tights to a white bustier. Today was no exception, when the singer was spotted walking into her hotel wearing a snakeskin blouse, cream silk pants, and jumbo strappy gold heels. Work it out! [Photos: Splash News Online]
