Rihanna Says She Wouldn't Join Taylor Swift Onstage


Rihanna Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift may be the toast of pretty much the entire world right now, but there’s one person who definitely doesn’t want to be part of her “squad”. Fellow pop star Rihanna has said that she wouldn’t join the ‘Bad Blood’ singer on stage if she was asked, because to her it wouldn’t make sense.

Throughout her 1989 World Tour, Swift has attracted tons of headlines for bringing a huge array of female celebrities – plus Matt LeBlanc, for some reason - up on stage with her. “Please welcome to the stage…” has become one of the most parodied phrases of the summer, ending up in that hilarious viral video.

Grace Jones Hits Out At Unoriginal Modern Pop Artists


Grace Jones Rihanna Nicki Minaj Miley Cyrus Rita Ora Lady GaGa

Grace Jones has unleashed a tirade of criticism at all manner of modern pop stars, from Minaj to Miley, by describing them as “middle of the stream” and lamenting the current state of the music industry, in her new autobiography.

‘I’ll Never Write My Memoirs’ is released on September 29th, but as a taster she has published a few excerpts from the new book via Time Out. In one of them, Jones complains that a whole host of pop stars have copied her style but have no “long-term vision”, coming off as unoriginal and therefore easily replaceable.

“Trends come along and people say, ‘follow that trend’,” she writes. “There’s a lot of that around at the moment: 'Be like Sasha Fierce. Be like Miley Cyrus. Be like Rihanna. Be like Lady GaGa. Be like Rita Ora and Sia. Be like Madonna.’ I cannot be like them – except to the extent that they are already being like me.”

Rihanna

In the year that sees her celebrate ten years in the music industry, Rihanna would appear to be branching out into fashion, with the announcement today that the Barbadian singer will be launching a range of approved beauty products at some point in the near future.

RiRi told Refinery29 on Monday (August 31st): “That is definitely something I am going to have my hands on and would love to do. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do, but I’ve always had so much on my hands. But, this time, I’m going to make sure it happens. I’m going to find some time between albums and fragrance to do that. I promise.”

Move Over Rihanna, Miss Piggy’s Here With Her Own Fabulous Rendition Of ‘BBHMM’


Rihanna The Muppets

A video in which scenes from Miss Piggy’s prolific Muppets career were remixed in a parody of Rihanna’s ‘B***h Better Have My Money’ (BBHMM) is pretty fabulous, if we’re completely honest. The 1 minute 40 second footage is a tribute to Miss Piggy, who is arguably a bigger diva than Rihanna. Whilst Rihanna’s video involves controversial violence, Miss Piggy’s is much more toned down yet the message remains the same: nobody messes with Miss Piggy and gets away with it!

Adam Schleichkorn, A.K.A. Mylo the Cat, created the video for Vulture as part of their weekly remix videos. Mylo even makes a cameo appearance in the video.

Rihanna’s ‘B***h Better Have My Money’, or BBHMM for short, was released last month and immediately caused controversy. The music video for the song sees Rihanna kidnapping the wife of a man who has wronged her. Rihanna and other women working with her assault the woman on various occasions, at one point in the video tying her upside down by her feet from a barn building.

Home Review


Excellent

A sharp script and especially colourful imagery make this animated romp a lot more fun than expected, entertaining grown-ups just as much as the kids. It may be the usual frantic action comedy, but there's an edge to the humour and a continual stream of knowing gags and witty references that keep us laughing. As a result, the busy plot is surprisingly involving, and the action scenes are genuinely thrilling.

It opens in outer space with the Boov, a race of blobby creatures that are only good at one thing: running away from their sworn enemy the Gorg. Their leader Captain Smek (Steve Martin) has selected Earth as their next hiding place, so they swoop in and corral mankind into Happy Humantowns in the Australian Outback while the Boov occupy the cities, hilariously trying to make sense of everything they find there. But a Boov named Oh (Jim Parsons) sticks out from the hive-like community. Friendlier and more curious than he should be, he inadvertently alerts the Gorg to their location. So he goes on the run, meeting up with the human teen girl Tip (Rihanna), who has managed to hide out with her chubby cat Pig and now wants to find her mother (Jennifer Lopez). Pursued by Smek and top cop Kyle (Matt Jones), Oh and Tip must dart around the globe to solve both of their predicaments.

Based on Adam Rex's novel The True Meaning of Smekday, the story is packed with lively twists and turns, and the filmmakers bring it to life with energy, humour and some real emotion. The animators pull out all the stops as they play with outrageous colours and eye-catching action, while the Boov's ability to selectively control gravity adds plenty of scope for additional mayhem. For example, Oh and Tip travel the globe in a car that Oh soups up Back to the Future-style so they can fly to Boov central command in Paris and then on to Australia. These kinds of knowing film references flit across the screen all the way through their adventure.

Kanye West has launched a mysterious new website that features only a countdown and nothing else. The site, called Yeezy Supply, has been the cause of a great deal of speculation as to what it’s there to promote.

At the time of writing, the countdown will expire in a little over five days – or, more precisely, at 9pm on Thursday 12th February. The most likely explanation is that this is the same day as the start of New York Fashion Week, and that the countdown is connected to some sort of live show or announcement about a new fashion range.

Kanye West Sir Paul McCartney Rihanna

Remember that Paul McCartney/Kanye West collaboration they teased with the release of Only You last year?

FourFiveSeconds was made available on RihannaNow.com over the weekend.

Kanye West
Could the West/McCartney partnership evolve into a full album?

The track is an anti-negativity anthem in the same vein as West’s 2014 album Yeezus, with him and Rihanna providing all the vocals as McCartney backs them on piano. It’s a smooth track, and definitely should make it on your weekend playlist (maybe in between Kedrick Lamar’s I (Love Myself) and Chance the Rapper’s No Better Blues). It’s Kanye’s second crack at the acoustic, minimally-produced, no beat genre and we’re pretty into it.

RihannaRihanna has won a landmark case against Topshop

The three judges, Lords Justices Richard, Kitchin and Underhill ruled that Topshop's unauthorised use of the singer's photograph on a range of t-shirts amounted to "passing off". Though affirming that there was no English law allowing anyone to restrain reproduction of their name or image, but the judgement provided further legal grounds for the famous to limit the circumstances with which commercial advantage can be achieved.

Weak

A solid cast bodes well for this unnecessary remake of the 1982 movie (based on the 1970s musical), but the filmmakers' decision to turn the catchy songs into bland pop numbers is the real mistake. It leaves the entire film feeling empty, highlighting director Will Gluck's clunky direction, which includes coaxing Cameron Diaz to a squirm-inducingly over-the-top performance. Young children probably won't mind, but as the movie lurches awkwardly from one messy set piece to the next, the lack of a decently arranged musical number makes everything look dull and witless.

In Harlem, 10-year-old Annie (Quvenzhane Wallis) is an orphan living in a foster home with four other girls, run by the greedy Miss Hannigan (Diaz). Smart and quick-witted, Annie longs for a day when she can be reunited with her parents. Then she has a run-in with Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx), a workaholic mobile phone executive who's running for New York mayor. Will's advisor Guy (Bobby Cannavale) suggests that he take Annie in temporarily to boost his poll numbers, and once settled in his spacious penthouse apartment she immediately charms Will's assistant Grace (Rose Byrne) and driver Nash (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). And she begins to work her way into Will's heart as well.

From here, Gluck completely misses the point of the play, trying desperately to crank up a ridiculous scam subplot into some big final-act action mayhem. But this never gains any traction at all because it's clear what has to happen in the story. Indeed, the best thing on screen is the strong chemistry between Foxx and Wallis, who find moments of genuine humour and connection even in the silliest slapstick. And they seem almost reluctant every time they have to dive into yet another insipidly revamped song. Pop star Sia worked on them, but loses all the charm in the attempt to turn each one into a chart-topping clone. Fans of the original music will enjoy the brief riffs of the originals audible here and there, and they'll leave the cinema wanting to revisit the old numbers instead of these Frankenstein versions.
