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.

Chrianna

“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.

 

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

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?!

Drake: Amanda Bynes’ Obsession With Me Is ‘Weird & Disturbing’

Drake is finally responding to Amanda’s strange tweets about him, and he’s being pretty understanding about the whole thing. Read on to find out what he had to say about the troubled star.

Amanda Bynes famously took to Twitter to ask Drake to “murder her vagina,” only to turn around and attack him with her proverbial ugly stick back in June. The troubled What I Like About You Star, who is currently being treated for schizophrenia, said rapper Drake has “the ugliest smile, ugly gums uneven teeth ugly eyes,” before quickly deleting the tweet. She also dissed him for having “ugly downward facing eyes.” Drake has stayed mum on the issue, but now he’s finally coming forward to say that Amanda’s fixation on him is clearly part of a “bigger” problem.

Drake On Amanda Bynes’ Tweets — Her Obsession Is ‘Weird & Disturbing’

Drake responded to Amanda’s attacks in an interview with XXL magazine, saying, “I don’t even know who that is doing that or what that’s about. If that is her, I guess it’s a little weird and disturbing.” The rapper adds:

It’s obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me. Whoever is behind it, whether it’s her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going.

Drake doesn’t sound too thrilled about the fact that he’s also getting attention as a result of Amanda’s tweets — but it seems like he is at least understanding of her condition and he knows she probably didn’t mean any real harm to him.

It’s clear now that Amanda has serious psychological issues and she probably didn’t have control over her actions when she tweeted about Drake, so we’re glad he’s not holding it against her.

Amanda Bynes Placed On Involuntary Psychiatric Hold

A lot has happened to the troubled star since her days of tweeting about how ugly Drake, Rihanna, Lance Bass and others are. Amanda was hospitalized by police and placed on involuntary psychiatric hold on July 23 after she was caught setting a fire in the driveway of a private Thousand Oaks, Calif. home.

So scary! While Amanda’s hospitalization was truly shocking, it was probably also the right thing for her, because it appears she really needs help.

HollywoodLifers, what do you guys think of Drake’s reaction to Amanda’s tweets? Would you be so understanding if she had tweeted about you? Let us know!

 

Rihanna gets half-naked on the streets of Barbados for Carnival

Imagehe tweeted that she woke up covered in paint and in a veil from partying all night – well, she wasn’t going to stay in and watch TV, was she?

A night out with Rihanna would be SO GOOD (we'd probably pass out halfway through)
A night out with Rihanna would be SO GOOD (we’d probably pass out halfway through)

Only Rihanna could fly to another country just for a big night out – and yesterday, she did just that, because she flew from LA to Barbados just for their version of Carnival and stayed out until 6am. Oh, Rihanna.

The singer tweeted: “Woke up in paint and a veil from partying in de street all morning!!! #Barbados #FOREDAYmorning CROP OVA almost here!”

The Carnival is to celebrate the country’s harvest of the sugar crops, but looking at the pictures, it’s a good chance for Rihanna to take all her clothes off, grind on other girls and drink loads. We think it looks AMAZING.

Just a casual night out for Rihanna then

Rihanna also rode about on her bodyguard’s back, but we’d imagine that’s all part of the job description. “Take care of her, keep fans away, act like a donkey, hold her bag when she dances.” Y’know, just normal stuff.

The Foreday Morning Jam party started at midnight and ended at 6am in Bridgetown, which is where Rihanna grew up until she was discovered by Jay Z aged 16.

Riri took best mate Melissa Forde with her, but afterwards (possibly on a private plane back to the US) she tweeted it was back to work. SAD.

Rihanna
You wouldn’t catch Beyonce doing that, would you?

“And on that note, glam starts NOW!!! New cover shoot today! I got a hustler spirit” she wrote on Twitter. So, no more bikinis, no more paint, no more plastic glasses? Oh Rihanna, we’re sad.

We love that on Friday, Rihanna was shopping in LA, but by the next day she was partying at home with her mates she grew up with.

 

Of course, everyone in Bridgetown was really excited to see her – and Twitter went a bit mental because an actual A-Lister was just walking around in the crowds like it was normal.

“Saw Rihanna on the ground at foreday getting Jam down Yu go Riri!” posted one partier, while others couldn’t stop spotting her: “Rihanna was on the road with us”, “Saw Rihanna today!” and “Rihanna Having A Great Time At Foreday Morning… Getting A Quick Lift Along The Way 😉 Enjoy Yourself RiRi!” were some of the excited posts. Other fans uploaded pictures of her dancing in the crowds, and one person called it: “the highlight of crop over so far!” One lucky man Tweeted the story his mate will be telling down the pub every day for a month: “Trav  is super stoked he got to dance with @rihanna at foreday morning!”

Rihanna
Flat shoes = essential
Twitter

Er, can we come out with you please Rihanna? We promise not to moan when people spill beer in our hair like we do at the Notting Hill Carnival … (well, we can’t promise anything really)

 

Kanye West Releases ‘Black Skinhead’ Video

Kanye West Releases ‘Black Skinhead’ Video

Kanye West has released the interactive clip for “Black Skinhead.”

Created over five months by Nick Knight and Kanye, the video has been created with Internet and smartphone users in mind. It comes with a feature that allows the viewer to adjust the speed and take screengrabs at any stage.

A draft of the video had leaked in recent weeks — to Kanye’s chagrin. The content in this final version isn’t much different.

The “official” black & white clip is built around a digitally-rendered Kanye, who’s cutting moves throughout and looking particularly ripped.

The promo opens with a controversial image of three KKK members, with a twist – they’re draped in black. The spires of their hoods frame the video.

“Black Skinhead” is lifted from Kanye’s chart-smashing new album “Yeezus.”

Beyoncé and Jay Z Attend Trayvon Martin Rally in NYC

Beyoncé and Jay Z joined a rally in New York City honoring Trayvon Martin on Saturday.

The two stood alongside activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton, who spoke at the peaceful protest and introduced the the couple as “two of the baddest artists of all time.”

“Jay Z and Beyoncé said they didn’t want to speak and they didn’t come for a photo op,” he announced to the crowd of hundreds of thousands.

“Jay Z told me, ‘I’m a father. Beyoncé is a mother.’ We all feel the pain and apprehension—the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn’t protect anybody. We do not come from hate, we come from love of children,” Sharpton continued.

The “Grown Woman” singer went with a more demure ensemble for the event, a black sundress and conservative heels. Her rapper hubby donned a suit and white T-shirt for his public appearance.

Both music industry heavyweights have been outspoken about their feelings on the trial.

On July 19, Bey tweeted, “#actnow4Travyon” and attached a link asking fans to sign a petition on MoveOn.org to join the protest.

“Trayvon Martin’s most basic civil right, the right to live, was violated,” she wrote on her Tumblr.

She also shared a photograph of herself, Jay and Travyon Martin’s parents on her website earlier today and asked for a moment of silence at a Miami concert last week following the verdict announcement.

Meanwhile, last night at the Legends of the Summer tour with Justin Timberlake, Jay dedicated the song “Forever Young” to the slain teenager.

“This is for Trayvon, so light up your cell phones New York!” he shouted at the crowd.

Bey’s sister, Solange, also spoke out publicly regarding the death of Martin.

Last week, she held a peaceful protest in Brooklyn and spoke in front of a crowd of hundreds.

She carried a homemade sign that quoted the late human rights leader and Muslim minister Malcom X that read, “I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it’s for or against. Malcolm X”

The singer took to Twitter to further vent about the trial that rocked the nation and the peaceful protest.

“Seeing & gathering with people today/tonight all for the same fight helped to restore my faith in humanity…” she said.

She added: “I am optimistic…I am sick of racism & want to do something about it.”
