Rihanna dropped another single off her long-awaited eighth studio album, Anti, today, called “Work.” The track features her longtime friend, and ex, Drake.
They previously collaborated on 2010’s “What’s My Name” and “Take Care” in 2011, and bumped genitals shortly thereafter, but they seem like they’re still respectful of one another and cool. I mean, obviously, cool enough to collab again!
Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio used to hook up…and now they just, hang out?
Apparently Leo and Rihanna ran into each other in L’Arc Nightclub in Paris early Sunday morning, while Riri was hanging with Cara Delevingne just like, boozing in Paris, lie celebs do. Though of course we’re all wondering if it was celeb makeout city, apparently it’s not, because sources say nothing that hot happened. TMZ reports:
We’re told RiRi was hanging with Cara Delevingne, and when they saw Leo there was a friendly greeting … including a kiss on the cheek which was captured by a photog. You haven’t seen the pics because the agency hawking them claims Leo’s people are trying to block the sale … based on French privacy laws that protect public figures.
As for the make out rumors — our sources say it’s just a bad angle in the photo.
Of course, Leo and Rihanna hooked up about a year ago but now they are absolutely platonic and Leo is single as hell. So hey, Victoria’s Secret Models? Might want to note that your greasy Jack Nicholson wannabe is back in business.
Not too shabby!
Drake was crowned most played artist of 2015 by Spotify; The If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and What a Time to Be Alive rapper was listened to over 1.8 billion times this year… making him by far the most successful artist on Spotify.
But what FEMALE artist did the masses deem the Spotify Queen? Find out, after the jump!
Just recently, a book called “Becoming Beyonce” dropped a bombshell about how a rumor was leaked about Jay-Z cheating with Rihanna in order to boost her first song “Pon De Replay”. Now, Rihanna’s team is blasting the reports that claim that a former publicist named Jonathan Hay leaked the rumor in 2005 to create some publicity for her.
“I was working for Vada Nobles, who wrote and produced ‘Pon de Replay,’” Hay’s quoted in R. Randy Taraborrelli’s “Becoming Beyoncé.” “It was my job to make sure she hit . . . In an effort to generate some interest . . . I began to plant . . . stories that Jay and Rihanna were having a hot romance.” The only problem with the revelation? Rihanna’s legal reps and Nobles told Page Six on Tuesday that Rihanna’s never had any involvement with Hay as a rep.
“Hay was never Rihanna’s publicist or had any personal or professional relationship with her,” Rihanna’s lawyer Jordan Siev told us. Her team claimed the New York Daily News erroneously reported Hay was “Rihanna’s ex-publicist” before updating its story on Tuesday. Other outlets have also called him “former Rihanna publicist.”
When we reached out to Hay, he told us, “I wasn’t Rihanna’s publicist, I was [the] publicist for her first single. She didn’t have a publicist . . . It was back in the day, she was nobody.”
But Nobles said: “I met this guy once, maybe twice . . . I did not hire Jonathan Hay to promote Rihanna [or] ‘Pon de Replay’ . . . He had nothing to do with Rihanna. Someone I knew referred this guy [to me as a publicist], I said, ‘Let’s see what he can do’ . . . He was using my name and what I was doing to get traction for himself.”
Hay said in a statement, “I haven’t read the book and I don’t know what it says. I talked to the author for the first time this Sunday.”
He added that he’s focusing on “music projects that I’m producing and releasing” and “all this other gossip is nonsense.”
