Last night, the majority of the A-list audience gave Frank Ocean a rousing standing ovation as he walked to the stage to accept his award for Best Urban Contemporary Album at The 55th Annual Grammy Awards – except for Chris Brown.
In today’s pop culture driven world, many people are so busy overindulging in the aspects of Rihanna‘s personal life that they forget often her chief contribution to society — melodic goat whispering.
With her uber-candid February 2013 cover story for Rolling Stone magazine focusing primarily on her reconciliation with Chris Brown and what the reunion means for her image, expect for public interest about their relationship to continue rising.
Get it together or forget it forever: “He doesn’t have the luxury of fucking up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
Life support: “Wait. You think I’m here to rehabilitate Chris? No, no, no. That is not my purpose. Trust me. I could have done that from the jump if I thought that was my job. My job was to take care of myself – and I did. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think Chris was ready.”
“Givenchy sounds like a fucking shitty ball player. Like a fucked up city in Spain. ‘Where are you going Michael?’ Givenchy,” Tyler The Creator joked with Pusha T while filming the music video for “Trouble On My Mind”.
But label loving entertainers and athletes can’t get enough of the French luxury brand — especially Riccardo Tisci’s graphic tees. It’s their polite way of saying “I spent your car note on this t-shirt because I can” with consideration to the common man.
Rihanna pulled quite the stunt midway through her performance of my favorite song to drop acid to last night in London.
“Alright, what the fuck? Stop this shit. What the fuck is that? Why is the track off from the band? This is the bullshit we deal with when we are just doing a random rock n’ roll tour with no rehearsals and shit,” ranted Rih Rih.
She then apologized to her audience and fans watching at home before running the song back from the top. Because the band was to blame for her vocals sounding like stir fried shit.
Girl. Gerl. Gworl.
It’s not all good in the friendly skies for many journalists and fans globetrotting with Rihanna in support of her 777 Tour. Here’s a breakdown of the reported “bedlam” that has taken place on the Boeing aircraft.
MTV – By now you may have heard that shortly after takeoff around 4 this morning, our tour plane descended into bedlam, as a large group of passengers (mostly journalists), could no longer contain the frustration that had been building over the past 48 hours or so. If you’ve been following along, you could probably tell — even positive show reviews were taking on a clipped tone, there was a general undercurrent of “I’m writing about this because I have to, but I am miserable” to many updates.
Rihanna Lights Up The Stage In Berlin
Frank Ocean appeared to be one sip away from a terrible decision as he posed for photos with Miles Teller and Kid Cudi at the GQ Men of The Year party at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles on Tuesday (November 13). Ned The Wino, commonly referred to as Drunk Ass Tami in Crunkland, would be proud.
The 25-year-old singer has been keeping busy since the summer release of his debut studio album ‘Channel Orange’, spending time in the studio with the likes of Jay-Z and Pharrell.
When quizzed by MTV News on the red carpet at the event about the ever-growing roster of artists who want to work with him these days, he responded, “That’s not a problem. It’s not, like, a tragedy. It’s cool, it’s awesome, it just means people fuck with me, and that’s cool.”
Earlier this week, Andre 3000 spoke to Fuse TV about linking with the singer/songwriter for the track “Pink Matter.”
To celebrate the release of her seventh album, ‘Unapologetic’, Rihanna is making a dizzying journey to play seven intimate shows in seven cities in seven different countries in seven days. I’m getting jet lagged just thinking about it.
Joining Rihbound for her 777 Tour: Nearly 250 members of her team, media and members of the Rihanna Navy from around the globe. Safe travels to all of our friends who made the trip!
“You guys ready? Seven seven muthafuckin’ seven! Ready for Mexico? Ready for some tequila? Let’s get drunk!” Rihanna asked over the loudspeaker of the Delta 777 jet on Wednesday (November 14).
