Rihanna is moving on… finally. We all know after bad break-ups men tend to hop right back into the swing of things- hitting the dating circuit usually in record time. Women however are generally just the opposite. We tend to grieve for a while- take time to reflect and then… maybe once pushed by friends decide to open ourselves up again. Chris Brown didn’t seem to grieve the loss of Rihanna too long as he was seen in the company of various women almost immediately- while Rihanna was seen mostly with girlfriends and newly hired bodyguards.
That all seems to have changed now. As my Grandma would say- Rihanna is “keeping company” with a new man and he’s not too shabby. His name is Matt Kemp and he’s a Los Angeles Dodger. He’s also a slight Chris Brown look-alike, but that’s another story in itself. The two have been spotted together before and seem to be openly letting the world they that they are item… or traveling buddies.
The two were seen arriving at LAX last night- fresh off of Rihanna’s New Year’s Eve gig in Abu Dhabi.
… and in other RiRi news- the singer is adding “Author” to her many list of credits. According to Amazon.com, Rihanna will release a book in conjunction with writer Simon Henwood called The Last Girl On Earth. Due to hit stores on June 29, 2010, it is already available for pre-order.
A lot of people are wondering what the book will be about but common sense tells me it will be nothing more than a professional tour book– an extravaganza of all things Rihanna and “Rated R.” The book is listed in the musical category and if memory serves me correctly The Beatles and Madonna have done something similar in the past.
Btw, the contributing writer to this book, Simon Henwood, is Rihanna’s all around creative director and a quick glance at his website- even while I am still writing this post- just confirmed my theory. According to SimonHenwood.com “A photo book documenting the artists: designs, film, and visuals for the American singer will be published in 2010 by Rizzoli, New York.
