Look out for Rihanna as Marion Crane in this season’s ‘Bates Motel’ on A&E!

The superstar’s episode debuts on Monday, February 20th. In the meantime, check out this trailer!

Rihanna is becoming a triple threat as she dabbles more in acting. She’s also starring in ‘Ocean’s 8’, alongside Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock. The film, anticipated by fans of the Ocean’s franchise, drops June of 2018.

Rihanna reminded us why she’s the MTV VMA’s 2016 recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The Barbados beauty graced the stage a record-breaking four times, giving us soul-snatching performances of her biggest hits!

Rihanna opened the show with a medley of “Don’t Stop The Music,” “Only Girl (In The World),” “We Found Love,” and “Where Have You Been”.

The show-opener was followed by her performances of “Rude Boy,” “What’s My Name?,” “Work,” “Needed Me,” “Love On The Brain,” and MORE!

Watch ALL the performances below before they’re snatched away by Viacom! If any of them are, click on MTV’s website to watch.

 



Last night, The 2016 MTV Music Awards aired live in New York City!

Rihanna is the 2016 recipient of MTV’s Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, and who better to present her such a prestigious award other than her man, Drake?

Before Rihanna gives her awesome speech, she gushes, as she listens to Drake’s beautiful speech about connecting with Rihanna during her entrance to superstardom. He also reminded viewers that she was able to stay true to herself in an industry that is ever-changing.

Chris Brown fans will get a treat as the star is set to release his new documentary, ‘Welcome To My Life’.

Chris opens up about his journey to superstardom, as well as  how the Rihanna assault and how affected both his personal and professional life. The film also includes old and new interviews with some of Chris’s friends in the music business, like Jennifer Lopez, Usher, Mary J Blige, and DJ Khaled.

 

That year, a then-19-year-old Brown was charged with assault after an argument with his then-girlfriend Rihanna escalated. Brown’s mom, Joyce Hawkins, also makes an appearance, recalling how she felt for her son at the time. “That was the worst day of my life and probably of his life,” she said. “I felt like I was gonna lose my child.” He also offered, “I was thinking about suicide and everything else.”

 

The Andrew Sandler-directed documentary doesn’t have a release date just yet, but of course, LN will keep you posted!

Superfruit is a very popular YouTube channel, starring two of the members of my favorite A capella group, Pentatonix.

The lovable Youtube stars are Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying, and part of Superfruit’s flavor on their show is turning a popular album into a smokin’ medley, showcasing their golden pipes, impressive octaves, and soulful harmonies. They’ve chosen Rihanna’s latest album, ‘Anti’, and tore every single to shreads! Press play below and become amazed!

 

Music lovers and fans love a good debate about their favorite entertainers. However, it’s clearly obvious that there’s no need for a debate about who’s the bigger or better artist between Rihanna and Beyoncé. Both are equally talented, both are beautiful, and both are killin’ the game in their own unique way.

We [black folks] should be just happy with the fact that these two African-American women are doing the damn thing in such a competitive and tough business…the music industry. Back in the day, women who were just as talented as these two women had a hard time just trying to gain respect, much less equality. Comparing the talent of these two women is like comparing Pepsi and Coke. Both serve the same purpose but with a slightly different flavor to cater to the desires of their fans. Overall, both are #winning, because they do what they do so damn well. Let’s just stop the comparisons and enjoy both of them for being great gotdamn entertainers!

This takes me back to the Michael Jackson Vs. Prince era. Media did a great job egging this debate and we fell for that everytime we read a magazine, watched an interview, or listened to the radio DJs. We knew there were obvious differences between the moonwalker and the purple one, but for the sake of a great debate, we kept the comparisons going; who was a better dancer, who sang better ballads, and who had the most fans. We all knew deep down inside that comparing these two men weren’t necessary, because they both did what they did best in their own unique way….just like Rihanna and Beyoncé. We love both Michael and Prince….just like we love both Rihanna and Beyoncé.

Rihanna is sassy, sexy, raunchy when she need to be, and gives new meaning to rock girl swag!

Beyoncé is classy, sensual, daring, bold, and can belt a tune like nobody’s business!

 

Slightly different flavor between the two, but serves the same purpose….create great music and can put on a kickass tour!

 

The #Beyhive and #RihannaNavy should come together, hold hands, and sing a medley of #Rihonce tunes.

Let’s stop comparing these two women, and accept them both for who they are… Two female entertainers who are dominating the music scene. Both of these women are evolving into legends. Salute to both of them!

A racist troll pretending to be a fan of Rihanna decided to share her point of view about Rihanna as a white woman when she tweeted a photoshopped image of the pop star with whiter skin. She added a caption that reads “You can call me a cracker and all that but this is undeniable proof that the whiter the more beautiful.”

#RihannaNavy turned the twitter user, @flopstar’s mentions into complete shambles for her obvious ignorance…among other things.

Reading down the user’s timeline, you’ll get a sense that she’s out of touch with reality and is clearly ignorant. Tweeting the image of Rihanna as a white woman was probably a desperate ploy to get attention. Well….she got it!

The user’s Twitter bio reads:

I really love Rihanna and I have her album.
I APOLOGIZE
Her cover photo even includes Rihanna…

Rihanna responded the classy way and simply blocked the troll. My other side wishes Rihanna should have clapped back. BUT, I already know…what difference would it have made, besides give the troll MORE attention?

Meanwhile…Rihanna’s golden-brown melanin stays on fleek
