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!

We don’t know how the weather has been where you are, but here in the North East, it’s been COLD. Damn cold! Christina Milian tried to heat things up with her Miami bikini pics the other day, but that was just a temporary solution. Now we’ve rounded up the 40 hottest Twitpics from the month of January, and suddenly we feel SO much better! Never-shy Tweetpeeps like Rihanna, Courtney Stodden, Adrianne Curry and many many more have set social media on fire with their smokin’ hot selfies, beachy vacay photos, and the occasional fashion shoot. What’s not to love? Supermodels like Miranda Kerr, Bar Refaeli and Heidi Klum got in on the act, but so did grown-up Disney queens like Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens! So if you’re feeling the bitter chill of winter, look no further than the gallery below for some sweet relief. Think of it as a sexy Duraflame log. Enjoy!
We really, really want to believe this one, for Rihanna’s sake. Not that it’s not something you hear from women who go back to the men who abused them all the time, but at least this quote is better than the brush-off “none of your business” statements she’s made in the past. After appearing all over the place with Chris Brown and writing cryptic tweets about their time together for the past few months, RiRi spelled things out for her Rolling Stone cover story.
“He doesn’t have the luxury of f—ing up again,” she said, by way of assuring the world that she won’t stand for any hint of abuse again. “That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
She also reiterates what she’s been saying all along about this: that she doesn’t care what we think about her reunion with the man who assaulted her in 2009. “I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” she said. “I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”
We hope so, Rihanna. We really do.

Karrueche Tran, what have you been doing since Chris Brown allegedly dumped you in October? It took you this long to realize what a pile of celeb gossip gold you have in your back pocket? You are the other woman in the Chris Brown/Rihanna drama, after all. We would be more surprised if you didn’t use the exposure to further your career, like posing topless for the cover of Rolling Out magazine.
News flash: Rihanna really likes weed, you guys! Ok, this should come as a surprise to exactly zero people, least of all Lena Dunham. Just yesterday we told you how the Girls star criticed Riri for her stream of pot-themed tweets and Instagrams. So maybe this most recent shot of the singer is especially dedicated to Lena!
We’re not going to get involved with their beef, but Rihanna definitely wasn’t fooling when she went as the Queen of Ganja for Halloween. It’s always 4:20 by Rihanna’s watch. To prove it, we’ve gone ahead and assembled 20 pictures of Ri blazin’ up…from this past year alone! We’re not going to include those infamous pictures of her at Coachella last year, because we’re still not totally convinced that those aren’t corn chips that she’s eating off that bald dude’s head. But there’s quite a few others in there, from all kinds of occasions. To be fair, some of them could be hand rolled cigs. But it’s just as likely as she and Chris Brown being “just friends”…
If her insane costumes are any indication, Heidi Klum has got to be really really fun at parties. And the super-modeling legend confirmed our theory last night when she swung by The Tonight Show and she ended up dancing on Jay Leno’s desk in a sheer black dress! It all started when she described how she spent the Golden Globes, (un)officially known as the most raucous night in Hollywood.
“I had fun. I was with my friend Lorraine Schwartz, she’s like one of the best jewelry designers,” said the former Victoria’s Secret angel. “We were at the Harvey Weinstein party afterwards, and she was like, ‘This party is so boring, we need to do something fun.’ And she’s like, ‘Go and dance on the table,’ so, someone had to.” And she was just the one to do it! “So I did. And, you know, I had a few glasses of champagne and so I was like, ‘Why not?’”
Newly-minted Golden Globe winner Lena Dunham made some unfortunate headlines recently following some unkind remarks about her from shock-jock Howard Stern. Luckily that all ended peacefully, but now the multi-talented Girls star is throwing some shade of her own: At pop goddess Rihanna! Oh girl, didn’t you read our post about Riri’s most vicious Twitter slams? This could be bad news, you guys.
Lena appeared on Alec Baldwin’s podcast Here’s The Thing (lulz) and admitted that she “used to be really into” Rihanna. But lately she feels that her DGAF attitude has gone a little too far, and worries about the effect that she’s having as a role model on her young fans. “I don’t want to ever throw stones from my glass house, but I follow her on Instagram and I just think about how many little girls beyond what I could even comprehend are obsessed with Rihanna,” Lena explained. “Like you know, she left Barbados, she’s had this amazing career, she’s won a Grammy. She’s talented.”
She cites Rihanna rejoining Team Breezy as a major turning point for her. “Then she gets back together with Chris Brown and posts a million pictures of them smoking marijuana together on a bed. And it cracks my heart in half in a way that makes me feel like I’m 95 years old.” Many of Ri’s Navy are starting to wonder if her “good girl gone bad” shtick isn’t just an act, and fear the way she’s influencing children who look up to her.
