Rihanna covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone, shot by famed photographer Terry Richardson. In the issue, the 24-year-old superstar speaks on her image and reconciling with Chris Brown.
On the public’s perception. “I decided it was more important for me to be happy. 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.” Read More
Back in November, a fan-made single cover for Rihanna’s unapologetically ratchet song “Pour It Up” circulated the Internet. The Mike WiLL-produced song is indeed one of Rihanna’s next singles, but the cover wasn’t official.
Moments ago, the Bajan “trapstar” unveiled the single’s official cover art, which shows a cleavage-bearing Rihanna holding up a glass. She also revealed the single cover for “Stay,” which features Mikky Ekko. On the blurry cover, she’s seen hugging some unidentified guy that many will assume resembles Chris Brown. Despite claiming their business is nobody’s but their own, they continue using their relationship to bring notice to their musical endeavors. View the cover for “Stay” below. Read More
It’s no secret that Rihanna’s style and personality contributed heavily to her extended reign upon Pop culture. With each album, the Bajan beaut’s style evolution and influence on fashion were quite evident. Though debatable, she even improved vocally as well. Ironically, she’s still the poster child for the ‘it doesn’t take talent to make it in today’s music industry’ argument.
Complex enlisted the 24-year-old modelesque singer for not one, but seven of their February/March 2013 covers. Each cover is a tribute of sorts to the style each album in her discography represents. Starting with Music of the Sun, Rihanna revisits the signature style of each album. She maintains her current trendy style while doing it. Who’s better to tribute you than you? Read More

Although we’re only six days into the New Year, it’s safe to bet that Chris Brown will be the player of the year (or runner-up–Stevie J of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta may have reached a new low).
Brown was spotted in Los Angeles with his girlfriend Rihanna, who sported an altered sweatshirt from his Black Pyramid line (Jan. 2).
Days later, his quasi-girlfriend Karrueche Tran tagged along to the Agenda Trade Show held in Long Beach to advertise Chris’ Black Pyramid Clothing to potential buyers.
