Rihanna‘s got a new job!
Not that she needed one, but Rihanna was just named the women’s creative director of Puma shoes! The seven-time Grammy Award winner and CFDA’s Fashion Icon laureate will begin in January. According to WWD, the singer flew in to Puma’s headquarters on Monday night for her first creative session with the design team, picking out colors and fabrics, discussing styles and the line’s overall direction.
As part of a multiyear partnership with the activewear firm, Rihanna will tackle Puma’s fitness and training line, which includes apparel as well as shoes, “design and customize classic Puma styles and create new styles to add to the Puma product portfolio,” the company said.
Dressed in a cream ensemble that included a bunch of pearls wrapped generously around her neck and descending softly on a vintage satin bustier, an Yves Saint Laurent hooded sweater, track pants and a brand-new pair of Puma sneakers customized for the occasion with a crepe sole, the singer already showed off her talent for mixing chic with sporty.
“I’m very excited about this. Whether it’s apparel or shoes or accessories, I want to modernize it by highlighting the classics and going from things that make Puma Puma — give it a youthfulness, make it hip, basically [make it] Rihanna,” the singer told WWD, while taking a short break from countless meets and greets with the German activewear brand’s managing board and the hundreds of employees who gathered to snap a few pics of the affable performer.
Calling her new assignment “a little bit surreal,” the singer vowed “to come up with cool things that don’t even belong in Puma.” “It could even be down to suspenders,” she laughed. “We can experiment and take risks, that’s what I’m most excited about — the creative freedom.”
I don’t know bringing on Rihanna to rejuvinate Puma is the BEST idea I’ve ever heard, but it’s certainly worth a shot, right? What do you think- can Rihanna help Puma?

Excuse me, WHAT?
You’d think Scarlett Johansson would realize her bangin’ bod was outta this world, but I guess she has her hangups like errybody else. In fact, during Sunday’s broadcast of Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014, the actress, 30, said she doesn’t think there’s anything very special about her body.
“It’s an okay body,” she told Walters, who included Johansson on the list because of her very eventful year as a new mom, wife, and blockbuster star. “I wouldn’t say it’s particularly remarkable, though. I don’t like my thighs, my midsection.”
And about her sex-symbol status? She doesn’t get that, either!
“I never put on a sexy face, so I don’t know what it means to act seductively.”

This isn’t a picture from her most recent shoot, which alarmed the media because Tara Reid looked…well, like she had a problem.
The actress, 39, is defending her shoot and her lifestyle, according to People. She received a slew of negative comments after posting a photo of herself in a revealing bikini on Instagram over the Thanksgiving weekend.
The picture – captioned, “Visiting my parents house in Palm Springs for thanksgiving before the turkey” – prompted commenters to call her “anorexic,” “sick,” and “#soskinny.”
But Tara says nothing interrupts Tara-dise!
“I’m just a small-boned girl,” she told TMZ on Monday. “I eat, I eat, I eat.”
Reid noted that you can’t win, in this town.
“Some people that eat too much, [and] you yell at them that they’re fat,” she said. “You want to get mad at me because I’m skinny? Great, get mad at me. I am what I am.”
I hear ya girl. But can your next instagram be you eating a bowl of pasta, please? THX.

Kelly Osbourne is going retro…and keeping her look in the family!
The star of Fashion Police is looking a lot like her dad these days, and that’s meant to be a compliment! Kel’s got rocker dad Ozzy Osbourne‘s look with the rounded glasses, crosses, all black and the like. She’s modified the style, however with a bold, light purple hair color, along with a chic, black tailored jacket to make the overall ensemble feel more up to date and feminine.
I dig it! Do you?
