Rihanna‘s 777 tour was a hot mess, but not as hot or as messy as the underwhelming documentary about the tour!
The highly-anticipated insider peek into tour life with our best bud Rihanna aired last night on FOX, and those who actually did see it didn’t seem to be super happy about it. Rihanna 777 only averaged 1.73 million viewers and a 0.8 key demo rating, which is painfully low for such a huge doc!
So…why didn’t people watch? Was it the fact that the tour sucked? Or that we all hate Riri and Chris Brown together? Is everybody over Rihanna? I’m perplexed, but I cant’ say I’m not surprised. Her image has really been tarnished with her risque behavior (calling kids the “n” word, bailing on shows in favor of planning Chris Brown’s birthday, etc.), but I guess we’ll see to what extent as she keeps makin’ music!
Chris Brown and Rihanna have broken up again, and it looks like it was Chris who was behind the split.
During an interview with Australia’s 2Day radio show, Brown fessed up that he and Rihanna had split, and that she wouldn’t be with him to celebrate his 24th birthday on May 5.
“Are you going through this birthday solo?” the “Kyle and Jackie Show” host asked.
“Yeah, Imma do it solo,” he said. “I mean, at the end of the day, shawty doing her thang, she on the road … It’s always gonna be love. I’m just gonna do me. I’m a grown man. Just gotta fast forward.”
When the hosts asked Chris if he thought Rihanna was his soul mate, he admitted that he’ll always love her. “The way I look at it is, I am always going to love that person,” he said. “But people have differences and people have different wants and needs. And at the end of the day, she’s a young girl. I can’t really be focused on wife-ing somebody that young. At the end of the day. And I’m young too. So I can’t focus on that right now. I just need to fast forward and be a man and be the best Chris Brown I can be, instead of worrying about whoever else is going to be in my side pocket.”
On Saturday, Brown celebrated his birthday at The Mirage’s 1Oak nightclub in Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Sun. Rumor has it that his ex girlfriend Karrueche Tran — or her doppelganger — was in attendance.
Us Weekly reported that Tran also made an appearance at Brown’s Hollywood birthday party at Emerson Theatre on Friday. A source said she “didn’t look very happy” because he was surrounded by gaggle of other girls and didn’t pay her much mind.
Meanwhile, the 25-year-old Barbadian beauty was in New York City for her “Diamonds” world tour. Her May 4 concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center has been postponed until May 7 after the Brooklyn Nets forced a Game 7 against the Chicago Bulls, according to the New York Post.
What do you think of her shoes? They are quite strange.
C’mon now, that’s crazy talk. Chris Brown and Rihanna aren’t going to live happily ever after?
According to Chris’s father, their relationship isn’t going to last. When Clinton Brown was interviewed by the New York Daily News, he said, “I personally really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together. You have to have a balance in a relationship. You have to have someone who is spontaneous and whimsical but you also have to have someone who is grounded and logical.”
Brown and Rihanna broke off their engagement back in 2009, after he beat the crap out of her hours before the Grammy Awards. They’ve gotten back together since, leaving most everyone worrying for what’s coming next. “One has to assume because they are back together that it wasn’t one-sided. You just have to imagine it was a circumstance in which they both had a disagreement,” he said.
One would assume that? No, that’s not what this girl assumes. Battered women all across the world probably don’t assume that either.
Yep. For real. You heard right.
Chris Brown turns 24 on May 5th, but that’s ALSO the date Rihanna is expected for perform the Brooklyn leg of her Diamonds World Tour in NYC! So, what does any insanely doting- almost to the point of actual INSANITY-kinda on-again, off-again girlfriend do for her man when she’s an international pop star? Why, cancel the show, of course!
Insiders reveal that Riri was super appreciative of what he did for her birthday in February that she’s willing to work her schedule into overdrive to reciprocate the favor.
Sources explain (via PerezHilton):
“Chris treated her so bomb and surprised her with his presence when she turned 25, she wants to be with him badly when he turns 24. She’s not going to flat out ask him to be with her — not on his birthday because she feels that’s his day — but in her heart she wants him with her. It’s a surprise. All I can say is she’s got a few things up her sleeve. She wants Chris to know how much she loves him and wants him and honestly, she just wants to be with him and let him know she’s got his back.”
So…pretty much all he did was SURPRISE RIHANNA WITH HIS PRESENCE?! Man, sounds like Rihanna is easily impressed and majorly diluded. And now she’s planning a whole thing and letting a show get all cancelled? Ugh, dis-gus-ting.
I mean, don’t we all get our hair done topless?
The 25-year-old shared these pictures on her Instagram page. Rihanna is in the middle of her Diamonds World Tour, and here she made a stop in Atlanta. With the picture above, she wrote, “Show time!! #DWT,” she wrote. “#ATL is all miiiiiinnneee!!!! I want you on your WORST behavior!!! Tonight is all about you!!! #DiamondsWorldTour”
The Barbados-born beauty has more than yet another successful tour stop to celebrate as Billboard announced that she had broken the record for most pop songs by one artist reaching the No. 1 spot.
‘It’s a big day in Billboard history!!!! We Rihwrite records over here! #youcantgetin…,’ she wrote on Twitter. ‘I owe this to my fans and to Billboard! Thank you for the love! It’s pretty major!…’
Rihanna also shared a picture of herself in a totally see-through tank top. That pic is after the jump! (more…)
