The world of pop performance can often be garish and ostentatious — would we really want it any other way? For this reason, pop is pivotal in breaking down sexual taboos, and recently, with a spate of Ultimate Queens spreading like honey across the charts, female sexuality has become a staple in music video and stage performances alike.
Rihanna wears sexuality the way the rest of us wear a hat to a sports game — very casually, and very naturally. Sex just suits her very, very well, and even though her personal brand of erotica might seem very outlandish on someone else, it read as almost inconspicuous on her. No one bats an eye when she wears short-shorts and a crop top in the middle of winter, because it’s just Rihanna doing Rihanna, and for whatever reason, it works.
After years of flirting, flings, and frustration, it looks like Drake and Rihanna are finally, officially in a real relationship together. They spent the better part of last month jetsetting around Europe together while Drizzy wrapped up the overseas leg of his Would You Like A Tour? run. We wouldn’t be so quick to jump to conclusions if they weren’t joined at the hip and spotted holding hands and doing everything else that couples do.
Of course, this begs the question, “Will it last?” With their on-again, off-again past, chances seem slim, but maybe this time they have it all figured out. Check out The Complete History of Drihanna in our gallery above and draw a conclusion for yourself, then watch our video breaking down the superstar pair’s ever-changing status in the video below.

Would you turn down a spot opening for Taylor Swift or Rihanna? Well, that’s exactly what The 1975 did! The 1975 are a Manchester, UK band that are skyrocketing up the charts back on their home turf. They’re set to headline the Bushmills Live 2014 music festival in Ireland this summer and are now prepping to hit the US with full force. With four EPs and a full-length album of upbeat pop-rock songs under their belt, it’s about time America got to know the boys of ’75. We sat down with George Daniel and Matt Healy at SXSW in Austin, TX and discussed everything from sex to karate.
Jumping around onstage can really do a number on your stomach, and it definitely doesn’t take much to push it past the point of no return. Whether it’s a hangover, dehydration, food poisoning, or just good old fashioned stage fright, sometimes musicians have to just…let it go. All over the stage. And the front row, if they’re not lucky. But -much like their lunch- you just can’t keep these pros down. The show must go on!
