Entries in Rihanna (31)
With the newest Youtube-influenced Billboard charts in effect, the records of pop history’s premieres are in jeopardy.
Indeed, the likes of Michael and Janet Jackson, Prince, and Madonna may have had to rely on talent, single sales, and radio play to put them atop charts, but this stream-heavy generation will see its chart-toppers nab the Hot 100′s top spot through Internet play in conjunction with the aforementioned.
The refreshing of next week’s tally will see the first effects of yesterday’s announcement and, as previously reported, will land Baauer‘s viral hit ‘Harlem Shake’ at the #1 spot. Sure enough, pop princess Rihanna‘s name will pop up just a few spots behind him…
To her credit, Rihanna’s jump was not completely fueled by the Youtube change as her Grammy performance is attributed to the sales spike of ‘Stay’ – the latest single from her #1 album ‘Unapologetic’.
After tying Queen of Pop Madonna‘s record with her 12th number 1 single ‘Diamonds’, Ri nabbing her 24th top ten now surpasses legendary vocalist Whitney Houston‘s top ten record and lands Ri in the ninth place for overall top 10s by a solo act.

Things between Chris and Rihanna have hit such a rough patch once again that the banger didn’t even share her hot new ‘Complex’ photo shoot with him!
Chris has supposedly gone into a state of depression since finding out Rih went to dinner with her ex Matt Kemp…
Chris Brown and Rihanna‘s relationship is nearly impossible to chart. One day, they’re fine; the next, they’re not speaking. As the tumultuous couple have hit another bump in the road, we’ve learned that Chris, 23, is “sad” over the lack of communication between the two!
A source close to Chris tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that he and Rihanna, 24, aren’t talking at the moment, and it’s bumming Chris out! “I can’t even tell you what’s going on with them — they ain’t talking right now. I don’t know what the f**k is going on but they ain’t seeing eye to eye on some s**t…So they cool on each other…” our insider says.
“[He's] sad but, you know, that’s how it is sometimes. I know this back and forth s**t ain’t the business for him…but hey, he’ll figure it out.”
As for whether Chris has seen Rihanna’s sexy new photo spread in Complex magazine — the sort of thing the pop star usually sends to him personally — our source says that Breezy saw the pics, but not because Rihanna wanted him to.
“…Of course he did, but this time he saw it on Google alerts or whatever. Ri didn’t send it to him personally. He thinks she looks bomb. He always thinks she looks good no matter what. That’s his girl deep down but if you ask me, they be playing games and s**t, going back and forth.”
Chris Brown has been photo’d with models wearing hats from Karrueche’s new line as well as Instagramming photos of some gear from her new collection. Well, WTH!!!
Chris Brown and his love triangle...entirely too much going on.
Over the weekend, Karrueche decided to fly out to Paris to assist Chris with his styling. It was hard not to miss Rihanna’s subtweets that included phrases like, “Don’t slip, Don’t slip… Cuz a n—a might push up on it”She also posted up a photo of herself in Chris’ arms with the caption, “Damn……. I miss my n—a #thuglife #bfflife.”
Rihanna graces the cover of the November 2012 issue of Vogue magazine, her second U.S. cover for Vogue — at 24-years-old! She looks so sexy! Rihanna was previously on the cover of Vogue in April 2011, and also covered Vogue U.K. November 2011 and Vogue Italia in September 2009. Rihanna has been one busy woman, putting the finishing touches on her seventh studio album, Unapologetic, in stores November 19!
Rihanna tweets ‘Nude’ Instagram picture to promote her newest fragrance, but nudity was not required...
The Instagram photo Rihanna directed her Twitter followers to, which was attached to a tweet that read: ‘Here is my new add for a brand new fragrance #NUDE !!! Make sure you smell sexy, especially naked, this fall!!!’
Daring pop star Rihanna tweeted a “Nude” picture Friday, but she didn’t have to get naked to do so.
The “We Found Love” singer — who has more than 26 million followers on the social networking site — is releasing a new fragrance called Nude next year and took to Twitter to share her latest ad.
The Tweet links to an Instagram picture featuring a scantily clad Rihanna, smiling and sporting platinum blond locks. She wears lace lingerie and covers the rest of her body with what looks like some lightly colored gossamer.
“Here is my new add [sic] for a brand new fragrance #NUDE!!! Make sure you smell sexy, especially naked, this fall!!!” she wrote to accompany the picture.
Rihanna’s new ad generated a lot of love from fans, with 153,000 liking the picture as of Saturday afternoon.
Depending on how you view remakes, one potential role may help her get there. According to The Sun, Rihanna is itching to reprise the role of “Elvira Hancock.” Those of us who loveScarface know that is the role originally played byMichelle Pfeiffer.
She is quoted to have describing Michelle as having “ridiculous swagger.” Universal Pictures is said to be actively working on developing a new take on the classic starring Al Pacino, though with a “Tony Montana-style drug dealer in the 21st century.”
A man convicted of stalking Rihanna spent 277 days behind bars after showing up at her L.A. home and scaring the crap out of the singer and now he’s out and living in the same city as Rihanna!
Zentil Vanzellas was convicted of stalking the singer back in 2010 … after pleading no contest to allegations he was harassing the singer.
According to court records, the judge deemed Vanzellas a “credible threat” and acknowledged that Rihanna had reason to fear him.
Vanzellas — now 26 — was sentenced to 365 days in L.A. County Jail … but was released in June 2011 after serving 277 days.
As part of his sentence, Vanzellas was put on 3 years probation and ordered to stay at least 500 yards away from Rihanna for 10 years!!
Rihanna re-invents herself at least every six months so when you are a global brand, looking for a spokesperson, you never know what you will get when signing her to a multi-year endorsement deal. The image and brand you sign today, may not be the same image you will get a year from now, or even months from now. She’s about that YOLO.
Unfortunately, her ever-changing image and rockstar life is becoming a major risk to some of these very commercial brands that are looking for the next face of their company.
Earlier today, the head of Nivea’s parent company Beiersdorf revealed to German Media that they would not be re-signing Rihanna because she doesn’t fit their family image.
