Samsung Unveils Commercial for Rihanna’s “Anti” Album
Rihanna’s eighth studio album, the highly anticipated, Anti, is reportedly set to be released before the year is out. The project is being executive-produced by Kanye West and features the previously released tunes FourFiveSeconds, American Oxygen and Bitch Better Have My Money.
Tidal, which is rumored to be exclusively carrying the album, has been running promo for the project on various social media sites, most notably Instagram. Also hot on the Anti promo trail is Samsung, which debuted a commercial for the album during last night’s broadcast of the American Music Awards.
Rihanna has landed her next movie role.
According to Luc Besson, the 27-year old pop diva has joined the cast of his upcoming film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
Via his Instagram account, Besson had this to say about the singer’s casting: “Rihanna is a Valerian, and she has a really big part. I am so excited.”
RiRi joins a cast that already includes Dane DeHann (The Amazing Spiderman 2), Clive Owen (The Bourne Identify) and model Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns).
With a new album set to possibly be released any day now, Rihanna is once again back on the promotional trail- which in this case includes yet another magazine cover.
The 27-year old pop diva is is gracing New York Times’ T magazine, and along with Karl Largerfeld, Quentin Tarantino, Steve McQueen, Johnathan Franzen and Elizabeth Holmes, has been dubbed by the magazine as one of The Greats.
Rihanna’s Anti Album Cover Art Revealed
Rihanna has unveiled the title to her eighth studio album and surprisingly it isn’t R8. Instead, the 27-year old pop diva shocked fans by naming the album Anti, and unveiling cover art that seems to very much epitomize its name.
Via her Instagram account, Rihanna posted an image containing the definition of the word anti, as well as an un-sourced quote about her partnership with Anti cover artist Roy Nachum.
Rihanna is covering the latest edition of Vanity Fair. The 27-year old pop star was lensed by Annie Leibovitz earlier this year for an on location photo shoot in Cuba. With a new album to promote, Rihanna touched on quite a few topics for her interview with the magazine, including her album’s release date, her lack of a love life, and even Rachel Dolezal, whom she called “a hero.”
Rihanna and Beyonce, both rumored to be in the studio working on new music, took time off from their projects to hit up music festivals over the weekend. Rihanna wowed the crowd at Rock in Rio in Brazil, while Beyonce did much the same at the Global Citizen Festival here in New York City.
Over 80,000 people reportedly watched Rihanna perform a gluttony of her hits, including Diamonds, Birthday Cake, and fan favorite Bitch Better Have My Money. The singer’s set lasted just over an hour and did not disappoint based on crowd reaction.
While recently promoting her new fragrance RiRi, pop diva Rihanna revealed plans to launch her very own cosmetics line.
After having promoted brands like MAC and Covergirl, Rihanna says she is finally ready to step out on her own, and took the first step last year when she quietly went about registering for the trademark Fenty Beauty.
“Having my own line of cosmetics is definitely something I have always wanted to do,” Rihanna recently told Refinery 29. “I’ve usually had so much on my hands the time was never right. But this time I’m going to make sure it happens. I promise”
Pop diva Rihanna was pretty in pink today as she hit up Macy’s in New York to promote her latest fragrance RiRi by Rihanna.
The fragrance is Rihanna’s eighth to hit the market and for the first six months will be sold exclusively via Macy’s.
Purchased via their official website, a 1.7 ounce bottle of RiRi by Rihanna will cost you as little as $20- while the larger 3.4 ounce will set you back a mere $60.
As you all know by now, Rihanna is a Creative Director at Puma. She is also the Global Brand Ambassador for the company’s women’s fitness division. In both capacities it is Rihanna’s job to conceive and showcase new products, including this new high-impact sports bra she’s wearing in the company’s latest ad.
The $45 two-tone bra has padded shoulders, reinforced straps and will reportedly keep the twins nice and cozy with a mixture of polyester (44%), nylon (44%) and lycra (15%).
Rihanna Looks to Expand Her Fragrance Empire with RiRi by Rihanna
Pop diva Rihanna is back with RiRi by Rihanna, the singer’s eighth fragrance in her ever expanding collection.
The singer used her Instagram account earlier this evening to announce the news to fans, as well as show off the fragrance’s first promotional image.
Rihanna’s first fragrance, Rebe’l Fleur, was released almost almost five years ago, and according to Women’s Wear Daily, has amassed over one hundred millions in sales.
Rihanna’s Stance Socks Collection Unveiled
Rihanna wants to help you step your sock game up.
The 27-year old pop beauty has joined up with Stance to become their latest Punk and Poets (a fancy name for spokesperson) and has just unveiled her first limited edition collection for the brand.
The Murder Rih Wrote collection is available now and features crew and over the knee socks for both men and women, ranging in price from twenty-six to thirty dollars… a pair.
Here it is boys and girls: Rihanna’s video for her latest single Bitch Better Have My Money. There has been a lot of build-up to the release of this visual, including Rihanna’s appearance at the recent BET Awards, where she took part in several skits to promote the video’s pseudo-mobster theme. Was all the hype worth that? That’s for you to decide. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
Rihanna used her platform at last night’s BET Awards to announce the visual for her single (Bitch Better Have My Money) would be unveiled this coming Thursday, July 2, via Vevo. She then promotly dropped an almost two minute trailer for clip, which she reportedly co-directed alongside Megaforce.
According to published reports, Rihanna and her company Roraj Trade, LLC filed a patent for $CHOOL KIlls with the US Patent and Trademarks Office back in May of this year. At the time no one thought much of it, celebs attempt to patent all sorts of things. However, thanks to Grazia.co.uk, we now know the patent is actually for a new fashion and accessories line the singer hopes to unleash on the world before years end.
I know what you’re all thinking, but nope, not true. Rihanna doesn’t already have her own fashion line. Her much-hyped River Island Collection a few years back was a one-time collaboration with the brand and is now defunct.
