Ready for an eye roll?
Half the time, Rihanna walks around almost completely naked. She causes controversy wherever she goes, doesn’t she? That’s the name of the game, I suppose. Keeps her name in everyone’s mouth, ala Miley.
Anyway, Rihanna is in the middle of her world tour, when she made a stop in the United Arab Emirates. The singer was asked to leave Abu Dhabi’s Grand Mosque on Saturday.
According to the Associated Press, the mosque’s overseers asked the 25-year-old singer to leave after she posed for photos they considered offensive.
Rihanna hasn’t commented publicly, but she posted a bunch of photos from the shoot. These photos were the ones they found offensive. Offensive because….. it’s Rihanna? She was dressed very modestly, in a black jumpsuit from head to toe.
LOTS MORE PICS AFTER THE JUMP! (more…)
Rihanna is currently in New Zealand, where she has three tour stops, and while she’s there she decided to add to her extensive tattoo collection!
The singer got a traditional Maori tattoo on her right hand, and it wasn’t easy. Modern tattoos are done with an electric needle machine, but the Maori tattoos are done with a chisel, ink pigment and a mallet.
There is a video of Rihanna getting the new tattoo, which consists of lines and symbols from her fingernails down to the middle of her forearm.
A description for the studio on the Moko Ink website reads: “Moko Ink is the worlds first Maori Tattoo Studio specialising in the contemporary use and creation of traditional Maori and Polynesian Tatu. We make one off body art keeping alive the language and traditions that are unique to the art form. All our art is custom designed for each person on a consultation basis. The language of Ta Moko is used to design a unique piece of body art expressing aspects that relate to the wearer.”
Rihanna, 25, keeps it together for most of the time, but towards the end she starts showing signs of pain.
The video makes me cringe! I can’t imagine – it looks so painful!
Man, it’s a day full of SMUT! Somewhere my mother’s voice is ringing in my head. First we have Miley’s vagina, and now we have Rihanna’s!
Rihanna has been posting behind-the-scenes pictures for days, and now we finally see the music video in full! Here is “Pour It Up,” and it’s so gross. It’s just trashy and gross and I don’t even know what.
Watch for yourself below!
MORE BEHIND-THE-SCENES PICS AFTER THE JUMP! (more…)
Rihanna lands the November cover (NOVEMBER ALREADY!?) of Glamour Magazine. I haven’t seen any excerpts from the interview, just the cover. She looks like she’s rocking a gool ol’ 90s perm, doesn’t she? For the record, I’m not a fan.
Anyhoo, in other Rihanna news…apparently she’s got a reality TV show coming out…
Global superstar Rihanna is dipping her toe in the reality competition waters, and we have the very first exclusive look at her new series Styled to Rock, which will air on Bravo beginning Oct. 25.
Styled to Rock will feature Rihanna, Pharell and many other celebrity guests, and will give aspiring designers a chance to style an outfit for one or more musical acts each week. The contestants are fighting for a $100,000 dollar cash prize, a fashion feature in Glamour magazine and the once-in-a-lifetime chance to become the next member of Rihanna’s style team. It’s like Project Runway, but with a bit more rock.

Rihanna has caused an uproar in Thailand after posting the picture above of herself holding a loris.
The 25-year-old tweeted the picture Friday night following a trip to Phuket, Thailand. “Look who was talkin dirty to me!” she wrote.
Local police didn’t find it too funny. The following morning, police raided the popular Bangla Road area to crack down on people peddling pictures with the endangered primates.
A 20-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were detained by police and could face charges of possession of protected animals. They face up to four years in prison and a $1,3000 fine.
“I had an order from the Phuket Governor to do a raid today after Rihanna posted a photo of her with the loris,” Awat Nithikil, of Khao Phra Taew Forest Preserve, told Phuket News.
“It is very difficult to do the raids because the touts have spies. If someone hears police are coming their way, there will be a person who tells them to move,” he added.
Nithikil said it was important to send out a message after the Barbadian pop star posted the picture.
“It’s like a cat-and-mouse game,” Phuket District Chief Weera Kerdsirimongkon to The Associated Press.
“But this time it’s bigger because a celebrity like Rihanna posted the picture, and there were more than 200,000 likes from around the world,” he added.
The slow loris — a squirrel-like animal with enormous eyes — is native to Southeast Asia.
Rihanna stirring up trouble everywhere she goes!
