Who needs clothes when you can rock barely there boy shorts? Rihanna looks smokin’ hot on the latest cover of Rolling Stone magazine! Inside, Ri Ri dishes on the time her father slapped her so hard, he left a hand print across her face. She also speaks on sexting, her friendship with Jay-z and love of bad boys.
Ri Ri may have a reason to look angry!
Rihanna consistently sits on top of the Billboard charts at the #1 spot, but for some reason the popularity of her music isn’t translating to ticket sales for her tours. According to the NY Post, she may have to cancel many of her U.S. Tour dates, which begin in June, due to poor ticket sales. She reportedly had the same issues in 2010 during her “Last Girl On Earth” Tour and had to cancel dates in Phoenix, Dallas, Atlanta, Denver and Indianapolis.
A source tells the NYP:
“It has been a big disappointment. The ticket sales in big US cities like Boston are so bad, they will barely cover basics like the lighting and other arena costs. Tour managers are begging local radio stations to do giveaways.”
Rihanna is scheduled to perform in Boston on July 24 with Cee-Lo, and while 3,700 tickets have already been sold, the source claims that 15,000 must be sold to at least break even. Allegedly the promoter is expected to lose almost a half million dollars on the Boston date alone.
Another source says:
“She should’ve been doing theaters and smaller venues. She’s not ready to headline an arena tour.”
Dang Ri Ri…guess it’s back to the drawing board!
Beyonce fans, in case you were wondering…this is EXACTLY why Bey doesn’t do Twitter!
Friday night, Ciara stopped by E!’s Fashion Police with Joan Rivers to give her input on the latest red carpet hit and misses. During the segment, Rihanna’s Christian Dior Couture that she wore to the BRIT’s flashed across the screen and the other hosts shared their thoughts. When it was Ciara’s turn to critique the dress, she instead shared with Joan that the last time she ran into Rihanna, it rubbed her the wrong way.
Now all celebs know that sharing how they really feel about another celebrity’s outfit, more less, real personality is a major no no! But Ci Ci broke that cardinal rule when she made these comments:
“I ran into her recently at a party and she wasn’t the nicest. I’ve always loved and respected what she’s done in fashion and it’s crazy because I’ve run into her before but this time wasn’t the most pleasant run in”. Joan Rivers blatantly responded, “A b*tch! next”
The comment caused Rihanna fans to fire off angry comments at Ciara on twitter and word got back to Rihanna (who obviously didn’t watch the clip first), that Ciara said that she was a b*tch.
Cop lights, flash lights, spot lights, strobe lights, street lights. Rapper Kanye West shows off his love of color (and lights) in his brand new music video for “All of the Lights.”
Featuring Rihanna, Kid Cudi and a host of other artists (who didn’t get any face-time in the video), the track serves as the latest offering from Ye’s critically acclaimed and platinum certified My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.
