Rihanna Explains Her “Tweet, Retweet, Trending Topic!” Songwriting Strategy And Dances With Chris Brown For GQ

You may have caught glimpse of — or lingered over, because who could blame you? — Rihanna‘s sexy GQ “Men of the Year (And One Hot Woman)” cover that hit the web over the weekend and figured she had already bared all. But the accompanying story is now up, and the boundary-less star has more yet to show and tell, about the bottle brawl and her songwriting, her Caribbean culture and of course her love life. Rihanna and the writer enjoy a night out on the town that includes a papparazzi-flash lit dinner, an impromptu song-writing sesh in her hotel room and a dance-floor reunion with none other than Chris Brown.

Yesterday she talked with Bravo’s Andy Cohen for a 25 minute live FB chat; and Riri’s Navy was in the audience live and ratchet. Read more…

Great Success? Drake Was The Borat To Chris Brown’s Terrorist For Halloween

Last night, Chris Brown wore what must be the year’s most mistaken Halloween costume out trick-or-treating, earning himself near-unanimous disgust from across the internet. Headscarves on, beards “grown” long and guns held up and a blazin’ over their heads, Breezy and friends dressed to match as terrorists, posting the above picture to Instagram with a caption that read, “Ain’t nobody F—ing wit my clique!!!!#ohb.” No matter how you cut it, the costume bares little resemblance to “a sugar skull,” and was not likely inspired by some “MAC cosmetic design he saw;” rather, it’s culturally insensitive and boasting of violence, something a guy his history should be weary of. And that’s all to say nothing of the fact that he wore the “terrorizing” costume to Rihanna‘s party. Really, was CVS all out of Honey Boo Boo costumes by the time you got there? Read more…

Rihanna And Friends Celebrate Drake With Birthday Cards, We Steal Them From His Trash (Whoops!)


Today is Aubrey Graham’s birthday, and as the talented singing-rapper completes his 26th year of life, he’s smooth-talked his way into the hearts and minds of millions of fans (not to mention his fellow celebrity friends). Likely receiving countless gifts from friends, strangers, and business associates, Drake surely can’t keep each and every token, no matter how personal some may be. And that’s exactly why we decided to raid his garbage.

Dumpster diving is the classiest of adventures, especially when the trash you’re sifting through belongs to Toronto’s golden boy. Invasion of privacy, maybe, but like we’re taught on various reality shows, what’s discarded onto public property is considered free for the taking. Below are our findings: the front covers and inside messages of birthday cards from Drake’s grandmother, Rick Ross, the OVO fam, his Rabbi, Rihanna, the Young Money crew, and Chris Brown are all revealed.

Friday Face-Off: Brandy Then vs. Brandy Now

It’s Friday, so let’s get into that Brandy! No, not that brandy, you sophisticated lushes. I’m talking about the R&B singer whose singles probably were the soundtrack to your adolescence. Quit waxing nostalgic about sitting up in your room long enough to vote in today’s Friday Face-Off Music Video poll. You decide which Brandy jam you’re down for the most:  ”I Wanna Be Down” or “Put It Down.” Okay, now have that drink while we make our case for each.

Friday Face-Off: Backstreet Boys vs. Chris Brown

It’s Friday, you’re tired of your job and you have nothing else to do while your Lean Cuisine heats up in the microwave. So, take a second to vote for today’s Friday Face-Off Music Video. In a Halloween-themed match-up, Chris Brown‘s “Wall To Wall” is up against Backstreet Boys‘ “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).” You can vote below to determine which video is the most eerily entertaining, but first, it’s time to entertain the case for each each video.

“Wall To Wall” - Sorry, but any music video inspired by classic Wesley Snipes‘ superhero film Blade (remember Blade?!) renders all competition irrelevant. Read more…

Waka Flocka Says The Darndest Things: Supports President Obama, Wouldn’t Choose Rihanna If He Were Chris Brown And Will Block You On Twitter

Waka Flocka is not the person to ask a question to if you don’t want an unfiltered answer. No matter the subject. In his recent interview with 105.1′s The Breakfast Club we learned there is one topic he will opt for the safe “no comment” answer. And that topic is Kanye and Kim Kardashian. Everything else is fair game. Read more…

Do You Agree With Billboard Crowning Rihanna The Top Pop Artist Of The Last 20 Years?

Billboard Crowns Rihanna Top Pop Artist Of The Last 20 Years

Is Rihanna worthy of the gold throne she’s seated in, in the above photo? Billboard thinks so as they’ve chosen her as the top pop artist of the last 20 years. With only seven years under her belt Rihanna beat out veterans Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Usher and Celine Dion. As far as her peers she toppled her bestie Katy Perry, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Chris Brown. Part of Riri’s success can be attributed to her ability to dish out catchy hit after hit. Her hooks hook you. No pun intended. The chorus and hooks immediately come to mind when you hear just the titles of “We Found Love,” “Where Have You Been,” “Umbrella,” “Birthday Cake” and countless others. Is Rihanna’s formula for mastering an infectious song why she leaves her counterparts slouching in the dust? Read more…
