It’s the super revealing red carpet moment that everybody is talking — and sadly, it doesn’t involve Aretha Franklin overexposing her breasts.

Rihanna‘s stylist Mel Ottenberg and dress designer Adam Selman are opening up about the completely sheer dress coming soon to Kordell Stewart’s next drag showcase that the goat whisperer donned while accepting Fashion Icon Award honors at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City last night.

“It’s so naked,” Mel told “I don’t know if it’s shocking—I’m with her all the time, so my shock gauge is off, but I told her that I thought she was ready for this dress a while ago, and that I wasn’t. I’m the prude, and I’m just catching up.”

“So many people didn’t sleep last night,” he added. “I would say at least eight people worked nonstop from 8 p.m. last night to 3 p.m. today putting on the finishing touches.”

“We definitely wanted to make it a little bit scandalous,” Adam said about the custom fishnet dress, gloves and headscarf hand embellished with over 216,000 Swarovski crystals. “The dress is just fishnet and crystals and a couple of fingers crossed. But fashion is about beauty, and the [female] body is part of that.”

Clicks Around The Web: Rihanna Asked to Leave Abu Dhabi Mosque After Photo Shoot

Rihanna was booted from the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in the United Arab Emirates over the weekend after posing for a photo op that didn’t mesh with ‘sanctity’  standards of the holy site. Way to go, Cynthia Doll.

Allow Michael K. from Dlisted to explain:

RiRi’s Cubic Zirconias World Tour stopped in Abu Dhabi over the weekend and on Saturday she decided to put on a hijab and bust out an Instagram photo shoot at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. We as a people should gather together as one and be thankful that RiRi covered up her fugilicious tattoos for once, but not everyone is happy about this shit. After striking ridiculous pose after ridiculous pose on the grounds of the Grand Mosque, RiRi was kicked out by officials who were offended by her little photo shoot.

“She left without entering the mosque, after being asked to do so, due to the fact that she had taken some pictures that do not conform with the conditions and regulations put in place by the Centre’s management to regulate visits in a way that takes the status and sanctity of the mosque into consideration,” a representative for the mosque told media outlets in a statement.

Drake Reportedly Kicks Future Off Tour After Disparaging Comments 

Drake has allegedly booted Future from the lineup for his upcoming tour after he gave a lukewarm review of his latest album ‘Nothing Was The Same’ to Billboard.

“Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you,” Future reportedly told the publication. “They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do. I want to make you want to fall in love.”

An insider (again, the weedman gets around) says that Drake flipped over the quote. “He told his agent either Future gets fired, or he’ll fire him,” claims the source.

The day the article was published, Future took to Twitter to comment on the interview, saying he was misquoted. He is also reportedly hitting Drake where it hurts, demanding $1.5 million for loss of wages. The Freebandz affiliate rapper was set to earn about $40,000 per night on the 39-date trek.

That’s a shit load of 2-for-$20 date nights. More clicks around the web after the jump!

Rihanna Covers Glamour Magazine + Watch Stripper Audition For ‘Pour It Up’ Video

rihanna glamour Rihanna Covers Glamour Magazine + Watch Stripper Audition For Pour It Up Video

Rihanna is “learning to be fearless again” or at least that’s what is suggested on the cover for the November 2013 edition of Glamour magazine.

A$AP Rocky’s ‘Fashion Killa’ rocks a short coif (perhaps a homage to Joseline Hernandez’s season one wig), a sultry winged-out cat eye, muted pink lips and a black off the should top for the spot.


In her interview, the 25-year-old insists that she isn’t into partying much these days, both in and out of the bedroom. “I am such a bootleg rock star,” she told the publication of her sex life. “I do nothing. I’m embarrassed to say that actually. That’s so disgusting. It’s pathetic. I’m a bit of a square.”

She adds, “Don’t feel bad for me, I’m good.”


Pour yourself a tall glass of Jesus Juice and watch Nicole “The Pole” Williams work her magic in an audition tape interlaced with shots that appear to be from Rih Rih’s actual long-awaited “Pour It Up” music video below. This is the day that the Lord has made to watch that ass.

How Dreadful: Petition Wants Teyana Taylor Dropped From Adidas Deal For Poking Fun At Domestic Violence

teyana3 How Dreadful: Petition Wants Teyana Taylor Dropped From Adidas Deal For Poking Fun At Domestic Violence

What started out as a social media shade war has morphed itself into a petition demanding Adidas-Reebok cut their endorsement ties with Teyana Taylor for posting a photoshopped image poking fun at Rihanna‘s battered and bruised face following her domestic abuse situation with Chris Brown as a Twitter background.

Teyana previously secured a deal to design footwear for Adidas Original. She released her first sneaker, the Harlem GLC, earlier this year. Her second highly-anticipated offering is reportedly due out in November.

Teyana Taylor Calls Hot 97 To Explain Twitter Feud With Rihanna

Just like every single Black Twitter topic that is talked about all day and then forgotten the next, so was the Teyana Taylor / Rihanna tweef until the G.O.O.D. Music mascot called into Hot 97 radio station this morning to address the situation.

In response to where Rihanna’s attack came from: ”I don’t understand this either. I’ve been in the studio, minding my business, staying focused or whatever. And one day, which was yesterday, I randomly was on my Instagram page and I had heard that she made a video. I went to Twitter, someone sent me the video and I just thought it was really harsh.”

Placing blame on the Rihanna Navy: “I know her very well. Her fans allow and condone her behavior. She does this to everybody. It’s not always fun and games all of the time. You do it, you get away with it. You tried me. You clapped and I clapped back. That’s what that was. You didn’t think it would go as far as it did, but you can’t do that to everybody. Sometimes you’re going to bark up the wrong tree.”
