Rihanna takes it a step too far as she shows off her new grills… in the shape of a GUN

t

‘s the trend sweeping the celebrity the world – with rarely a day going by without one star or another showing off their blinged-up smile.

But Rihanna took her love of grills a step too far on Wednesday as she unveiled her new oral accessory.

The singer posted several shots on her Instagram page

think we can all agree that Rihanna is not shy! But with a toned physique like hers, why would you be? She looks amazing in this carnival get-up complete with feathered headress and is definitely making us reconsider that gym membership.Her look is from bespoke carnival wear makers, Island Fusion and is literally dripping in jewels. It’s perfect for getting involved in some soca dancing but perhaps not quite as practical in the non-carnival world.

But let’s use Rihanna as inspiration for a glitzy and glam summer look. There are plenty of embellished biknis out there that will really give your beachwear a bit of oomph – whether sequins, studs or jewels, you’ll be shining bright like a diamond in no time. Check out our top picks below inspired by RiRi and if you want to take it to the next level (and have no intention of actually getting in the water) then style with a spangly cuff, costume jewellery and heels.

Or why not go the whole way. Find a carnival procession and shake what your mama gave ya.

 

Chris Brown and Rihanna: Will They Ever Get Back Together?

Image

Chris Brown and Rihanna are clearly infatuated with one another, but also seem to be toxic when they’re actually together. It’s a vicious cycle.

Clearly, emotion isn’t enough to keep them together. In fact, it may be the reason why these on-off lovers cannot seem to make a romance work.

“They went through a lifetime together and they’re only in their 20s,” a source close to the pair says. “They’ve had lots of ups and then a HUGE down.”

“Sometimes Chris can’t even look at her because it reminds him of the $h!t he did years ago. Even though she forgave him, the world hasn’t.”

“That’s the $h!t that’s f*%ked up. It still distracts him from his music and his life. It’s always in his face and it’s something he just can’t shake.”

Both Chris Brown and Rihanna faced the adversity and criticism head on this year when they publicly reconciled … only to split after just a few months.

It’s unclear if a specific catalyst led to the breakup – trust issues are rumored, and she’s posted more than a few cryptic messages – or if it just can’t work.

“You know, they tried it once and it was great,” the source says.

“They tried it again and it didn’t work. He loves her, but he knows they just can’t work. They can only exist as friends. The relationship $h!t just can’t happen.”

“They can’t handle that. It’s too much.”

Yesterday, Chris sent out a very emotional tweet to express his feelings, hinting at his retirement from music and lamenting the reason for his “fame.”

“Being famous is amazing when it’s for ur music and talent. I’m tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I’m cool & over it!” he tweeted.

We feel for Chris, honestly, because we have no doubt that he truly does love Rihanna, deeply regrets his actions and is haunted by them every day.

However, he’s got to live with and rise above it, plain and simple, and that means not giving the “haters” ammunition or being surprised by the criticism.

It’s a vicious cycle of its own, and in some ways it’s not fair. But he can’t expect people to move on if he’s fixated on the event or people’s perception of him.

Do you agree, THGers? Sound off in the comments below.

 

Lea Michele Insisted Glee Use Cory Monteith’s Drug-Related Death As A Cautionary Tale!

Image

This is so heartbreaking, but so touching at the same time!

Since Cory Monteith‘s tragic and untimely death, the folks behind Glee have been tasked with the near-impossible challenge of writing out his iconic character, Finn Hudson, in a fitting way that also makes narrative sense.

As it turned out, a grief-stricken Lea Michele had ideas of her own.

She actually approached series creator Ryan Murphy with advice on broaching the delicate character write-out (which will be tackled in episode three of the new season.)

A source close to the show revealed:

“Lea wants [that episode] to reflect the truth, to warn people what can happen.”

Aww! It’s impossible for most of us to even comprehend simultaneously losing a friend, lover, and colleague, let alone to drugs and at such a young age!!!

Clearly the sensational young starlet hopes no one else ever has to experience the pain she’s going through, and that’s why she’s all for turning Finn’s death into a cautionary tale.

What an amazingly resilient young woman Lea has grown up to be! We’re beyond impressed!

Glee‘s new season begins September 26th.

 

Top Story! Taylor Swift Rumored To Be Dating Matthew Gubler For Real! Get The Deets Here!

Image

Is Taylor Swift really off the market?!

We’re so not sure!

But rumors of a new love have reignited, claiming she’s back up to shack up with Criminal Minds cutie, Matthew Gray Gubler!

As you’ll recall, the lovebirds allegedly felt sparks on the 4th of July when Matt attended Taylor’s Rhode Island beach party!

And now, a new report is claiming that Tay thought the actor was adorbz, so she messaged him on Facebook to connect:

“She messaged him out of the blue in June to tell him she thinks he’s cute. At first, Matthew didn’t believe it was her. Then Taylor invited him to her house in LA for dinner, and he realized it actually was her!”

Good thing Matty wasn’t catfish’d!

LOLz!

According to reports, they’re still TOTALLY dating! For real, for real!

If this has any truth to it, we’re shocked that Tay-Tay would reach out to a rando on the web, even if it was a hunky actor!

And what about trying to date a “normal” guy?!

Oh girl! Now you’ll definitely have some new writing material!

Miley Cyrus Reveals New Album Is Named Bangerz, Alleged Track With Britney Spears Leaks

Image

Attention, Smilers!

Miley Cyrus has just reached 13 million followers on Twitter and if you’re a die-hard fan, then you know what that means…

She announced that the title of her forthcoming album will be called Bangerz after hitting the massive milestone on her favorite social media site

And of course, the title didn’t come without a proper(ly vague) explanation by the blond singer.

“If you don’t know why my record is called BANGERZ you’ll know as soon as you hear it. Nothin but #BANGERZ” she wrote.

Shortly after the big reveal a snippet of an alleged leaked track featuring Miley and Britney Spears hit the Internet. The track title? Why, “Bangerz,” of course.

It wouldn’t be entirely shocking if the pop princess was featured on the former Hannah Montana’s album.

The onetime Disney darlings actually do have a lot in common.

In fact, Miley couldn’t help but gush about the singer in an interview with Huffington Post U.K., saying that the two have bonded about their career parallels.

“Everyone goes through a time in their life where they don’t want their picture taken every day,” the “We Can’t Stop” singer said.

“She just never had that time where she could say, ‘I’m going through something right now and need to shut down.’ I also don’t have that, so it’s good to have that one person in my life who gets it.”

Miley also explained how the two have more than just their music to bond over, adding, “I just think it’s never blaming you or making you feel like, ‘You’ve got all this going for you,’ it’s like she knows. Sometimes life just steps in the middle of your career the way life always does for anyone—it’s just ours is a little more 24/7.”

So the big question is, are you ready for Miley’s new album and a collaboration with BritBrit?!

Selena Gomez Goes Nearly Makeup-Free for i-D Magazine, Still Manages to Look Gorgeous

Image

The singer is looking a little less glamorous than we’re used to seeing her on the Sept. cover of i-D magazine.

But that doesn’t mean she looks any less gorgeous!

On the contrary, the fresh-faced 21-year-old made for a natural knockout with barely there makeup and understated hair, as well as tomboyish clothes for her outdoor London cover shoot.

And according to Gomez, the foreign location helped contribute to her ravishingly raw look.

“I love doing shoots overseas,” she said in an interview with the publication. “Actually being there and feeling the environment adds a realness to the shoot.”

Indeed, this is the most real we’ve seen Gomez!  Not only did she rock unkempt, beachy waves, but she ditched the sexy mini dresses she tends to wear on the red carpet in favor of an oversize John Varvatos coat, crew neck Marni T-shirt and Denham jeans that she confidently wore as she stared straight into the camera sans smile.

The look doesn’t exactly scream “Come & Get It” like, say, the racy sheer-skirt-and bustier number she wore for her music video or the the sultry shoots she’s done for other magazines in the past, but the 21-year-old thinks there’s something to be said for toned down spreads.

“It’s so easy to wear incredible, beautiful dresses and look super glamorous, because you have the power of Photoshop, but a shoot that’s really stripped-down and raw is really fun to do,” said Gomez. “I was being rained on, it was freezing, I was covered in a giant sweater and my hair was all over the place. I got to just be in that moment and feel like I was there.”

And judging from the stylish songbird’s playful cover, which sees her gamely smiling as she strikes the traditional i-D wink for the cover while wearing a Margaret Howell sweater, we’re guessing she really did enjoy her casual turn in front of the camera.

Hey, if we could look half as amazing as Gomez does with a freshly scrubbed complexion and bedhead, we wouldn’t complain about a little rain, either!

What do you think of Selena’s i-D cover?

Jay Z, Justin Timberlake bring chemistry, hit formula to sold-out Ford Field

Image

Providing the yin to the other’s yang, Jay Z and Justin Timberlake dropped a potent one-two punch onto Ford Field Tuesday night.

With Timberlake laying down smooth dance moves alongside Jay Z’s seasoned laid-back swagger, the superstar duo lived up to one of the summer’s premier concert billings for a roaring, engaged audience of more than 40,000.

In a show that was intricately orchestrated but still loose enough to give the whole thing a freewheeling mood, the nearly 2½-hour set was a marathon party, a rat-a-tat-tat of hits and high energy.

Detroit was one of just a dozen cities to luck out on one the duo’s Legends of the Summer tour stops, and the football stadium was bristling with buzz well before the two appeared onstage at about 9:20 p.m. The last time we’d seen each of these guys in a stadium-sized setting here, it was across the street at Comerica Park: Timberlake in 2001 with ’N Sync, and Jay Z in 2010 when he co-headlined with Eminem.

They opened Tuesday with their new collaboration “Holy Grail,” appearing astride risers at opposite ends of the mammoth, lavish stage before making their way to the middle for the first of many side-by-side musical moments.

From there it was on through a rapid-fire selection of tunes to rev up the party: Timberlake’s “Rock Your Body,” a sprightly “I Want You Back” in its natural pairing with Jay Z’s “Izzo (H.O.V.A.),” Timberlake’s “Senorita,” Jay’s “On to the Next One.”

It was all gloriously bombastic, the kind of night when having two drummers (and a percussionist), three keyboardists and a pair of video screens big enough to beam images to Canada all made perfect sense. And anyway, it wasn’t all just for show: The 14-piece band — complete with a feisty horn section and topped with four stylish backup singers — was tight, dense and nimble enough to serve both performers well.

Sure, this tour is a gimmick of sorts, teaming up two of the era’s biggest stars — and periodic studio collaborators — for a high-powered festival of hip-hop, R&B and pop. But Tuesday night, it was a gimmick that really worked: Jay Z and JT looked liked they’d been doing this together for years, sporting an affable chemistry as they played to one another and handed off the mic between comings and goings.

They’d arrived at Ford Field in dichotomous career spots: Jay Z the veteran rap kingpin on cruise control, Timberlake the comeback kid who seems to have remembered that he really digs this whole music thing. The latter was the harder working performer of the night, jumping from keyboard to piano to acoustic guitar when he wasn’t serving up his Michael Jackson-inspired maneuvers up front (and calling out to Detroit “Rock City” all night).

That certainly doesn’t mean Jay Z was second fiddle, and it was his litany of hits (“99 Problems,” “Hard Knock Life,” the stacatto-rapped “Jigga What, Jigga Who” and “Big Pimpin’”) that consistently drove the show. It’s old news at this point that the 43-year-old emcee has singlehandedly elevated the standards for live hip-hop in a big-stage production. But it’s still impressive to see it in action, and he prowled the Ford Field stage Tuesday night a larger-than-life showman, fully occupying his moment.

The set never dwelled too long in one musical place. The night’s most straightforward stretch came with Timberlake’s relatively lengthy midshow run of lush-grooved pop (“Summer Love,” “What Goes Around … Comes Around”), with “Cry Me a River” intensifying into a twin-guitar climax.

The only real awkward moment came with Timberlake’s rickety cover of “New York New York,” buttressing Jay’s “Empire State of Mind.” It was a lone clunker in a potent homestretch as the show began to hit its climatic run.

By the time they got to the encore, clad in tux jackets and hoisting glasses of champagne as they ran through a solid “Suit & Tie” and even better “Young Forever,” it was clear they’d accomplished something worth toasting themselves for. And don’t be suprised if 2013 isn’t the last time you see them doing it.
