Oprah And Rihanna Ride Around In Barbados
The queen of talk show will sit down with the pop princess bad-girl later on this month for the first time.
But before the interview hits the airwaves, Rih and Oprah wanted to give us a sneak peek.
Showing how much of a fan she is, Oprah excitedly tweeted a photo of she and Rihanna smiling, exclaiming, “Look who’s driving me around Barbados!” The “Umbrella” singer posted the same photo with, “Look who popped up in my Hometown BARBADOS #topnotch.”
The in-depth interview will be the first for the pair. After the 2009 Grammy assault of the star by Chris Brown, Oprah dedicated an episode of her talk show to domestic violence.
Her message was, ” If you go back with a man who hits you, it’s because you don’t think you’re worthy of being with a man who won’t. I’ve said before, ‘Love doesn’t hurt, and if a man hits you once, he will hit you again.’ “
After recent rumors that the Rihanna has been seeing her attacker again, the powerhouse host is bound to inquire.
Here are some of the things janet had to say in her spread by Prevention magazine.
On being the spokeswoman for Nutrisystem:
“I think people really connect with the idea of someone who’s gained and lost weight in a very public way, and also someone who’s an emotional eater.”
On being an example to her niece Paris, Michael’s 14-year-old daughter who landed her first film role in Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys:
“We’ve spoken about the fact that you’re only a child once. I think there’s a time for everything, and now is not the time [to act in films]. I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college—or not—but wait till she turns 18. She’s a very tough, smart girl. But it’s a cutthroat industry. I wouldn’t want my child to do it.”
On the dichotomy of being 5’4, sweet and soft-spoken and her identity as a five-time Grammy Award-winning artist who’s sold more than 100 million records:
“My songs are normally about what’s going on in my life at the moment. I don’t need to keep a diary.”
TMZ reports that singer Donna Summer died Thursday morning after fighting cancer, and Summer’s family confirmed her death shortly afterward. The disco star was reportedly trying to keep the extent of her illness under wraps while she completed a new album, though sources who saw her several weeks ago said she “didn’t seem too bad.” The five-time Grammy winner was known as the “Queen of Disco,” and rose to superstardom in the 1970s with her hits “Last Dance,” “Hot Stuff,” and “Bad Girls.”
How precious! Christina Milian stepped out with her 2-year-old daughter Violet yesterday as they spent the afternoon at Giggles and Hugs in the Century City Mall.
Pics of the pretty party girls inside…
Break out the party hats and party dresses! The super cute twosome–mommy Christina and tot Violet–had some fun at the children’s restuarant and playspace Giggles & Hugs in Cali this weekend.
Violet, in a white daisy party dress, attended a party with treats and balloons galore. She and her mom were also seen with Carson Daly before the party ended at 3p…when the kiddies got tired.
Christina’s mom tagged along too.
Pop star Rihanna turns 24 years-old today. Celebrate her evolving style in our gallery and read her b-day tweet from Chris Brown inside.
With a controversial remix for “Cake” with Chris Brown on the way, Rihanna kicks off her 24th-year of life by raising eyebrows….as usual.
Through her trend-setting red carpets look, catchy pop tunes and thought-provoking videos, she proves that she is a young woman on a mission.
We might not know what that mission is, but she (along her Navy) never fail to give us something to talk about.
She recently thanked her fans for all their well wishes saying,
Ahhhhhhh ALL MY BDAY wishes from my DM to my TL!!!! KRAY! I truly love u guys, thank you so much
#RihannaNavy for makin me feel special
She also received a tweet from Chris Brown who said,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN!
@chrisbrown: HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN!
Hmmm……looks like their rekindled friendship will be raising a few eyebrows too.
Revisit some of Rihanna’s trend-setting looks in the gallery.
TMZ has obtained a photo of the tub in which Whitney Houston died.
The photo was taken moments after police and EMTs removed Whitney’s bodyfrom the bathroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The photo shows the tub still filled with water. There’s a gravy dish at the bottom of the tub, which Whitney typically filled with olive oil to keep her skin soft.
Notice the two circular objects — they’re hair ties.
And there’s a towel at the bottom of the tub — possibly worn by Whitney to keep her hair dry while she was bathing.
According to theybf:
During perhaps the most emotional moment in her show’s history, Wendy Williams broke down in tears while discussing Whitney Houston and one of the connections they share….substance abuse. Watch it inside…..
Earlier today, Wendy Williams gave an emotional call to arms for substance abusers and the people who love them. She talked about her own struggles and how her years of cocaine abuse (she felt) connected her to Whitney Houston (who also had her struggles. During the moment, she broke down sobbing while saying,
“I’m not proud of the girl I was,” Williams continued. “But without being that girl, I wouldn’t be the woman that i am today. So if it makes any sense to you, I have no regrets. There’s one thing throughout it all. My connection with Whitney…that I wished for us both to be really sober and really aware and I knew I would meet her one day…I always pictured that time to be in our late 50s, 60s with her being the number-one spokesperson for “Say no.” I just for some reason thought that that’s what she would do. It’s what I want to do. I just thought we would meet, and we would hug and we would be sober and older and…”
Here’s the full segment below:
Despite that now infamous interview between Wendy & Whitney, Wendy said the two would see each other in passing a couple of times in different locations and Whitney still would say Hello.
Wendy also said she will not be following the story of Whitney’s death from this point on via her show, and this day is the last time she will address it. Definitely an emotional time.
According to theYBF:
Nicki Minaj ”rapped” while suspended in mid-air (never seen that before) on the Grammys Sunday night for an over-produced performance of “Roman Holiday.” Watch it inside….
Nicki Minaj (who arrived with “The Pope” & Sarafee) gave a churchy performance of “Roman Holiday” at the Grammys tonight. And it seemed like she was attempting to do the 2012 even more controversial version ofMadonna‘s “Like A Prayer.”
There’s a fine line between creativity and hoopla because you can. The performance was ahrd to follow, especally witht he minute and a half “mini movie” she showed and then switched into levitation and holy water for the on stage performance.
Grab your Bibles and watch the performance here:
IT was HORRIBLE!!!
