Covering December’s issue of Esquire Rihanna share her personal favorite recipes including her take on her very own island spin on shepherds pie and rum punch.
Shot by famed photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, RihRih gets wet and wild in the bathroom nearly naked in one picture and giving a little nipple slip in another.
BeyDay is coming rather sooner than we thought. Over the weekend speculations of a new Beyonce album surfaced the internet. A leaked list of songs that included Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Justin Timberlake could be seen under the album Beyonce: Volume 2. Since, Amazon has confirmed that a new Bey album will be available November 24th.

Available for pre order, the project will be a four disc set which supposedly will include the album with bonus songs, a DVD featuring 28 music videos, the “Mrs Carter World Tour” DVD and another of the “On The Run” Paris show. If these sources are correct, iTunes will also get the project on November 14th.
*Sips tea* could this be why Nicki Minaj pushed The Pink Print back a few weeks ?
It is said that there are three sides to every story, side 1, side 2 and the truth and for the first time we get to hear Karrueche Tran’s part. Tran opens up about her relationship with Chris Brown and Rihanna (the love triangle we all kept up with over the course of the year) as she sat down with Keke Palmer, on the “Just Keke” show.
Karrueche revealed that it was difficult to be a relationship with a big celebrity who was dating an even bigger celebrity. She talked about being private and positive while keeping a level head through all of this disclosing that it was not easy especially when she logged on social media sites.
The tears begin to flow as K.Tran opened up about the hardest part of the whole situation. Rumors have been circulating that the two are no longer together while other sources say that are.
Catch highlights of the interview below
Keke: Now I remember when you and I had a conversation right before everything started getting really crazy with Chris Brown. And I said to you, ‘How is it? Is everything okay?’ And you were like, ‘Well it’s not me. It’s just my boyfriend’s a celebrity.’ …I actually felt really bad in that time because you have a girl, who’s just a girl from California, who ends up falling in love with one of the big pop stars of our time. And you’re hit with all of this drama. I mean what was that like? Were you a bit down about it? Were your friends there for you? How did you find a way to really move forward through all of this and keep going?
Karrueche: Just keeping a level head and positivity. I’ve never dated a celebrity before so it was very new to me. Paparazzi and all that. And then, even the situation with Rihanna, you know the reason why people tuned into this so much was because it’s relatable. I have girlfriends, I have family who’s gone through the same situation. It’s the case of the ex. We all go through it, do you know what I’m saying? But, however…in this case my boyfriend is a celebrity who’s ex-girlfriend is an even bigger [celebrity]…Do you know what I’m saying? So, not only am I fighting a battle with her, I’m fighting a battle with her 14 million fans or however else. So, imagine how that feels for me when I gotta get on Twitter and I see a whole bunch of stuff…
Keke: And people are trying to make you constantly prove yourself. I see that a lot. I’m like looking and your comments…
Karrueche: They make up all kind of crazy stuff and it’s like they know nothing about me. But, you know, because they know nothing about me, because I stay so mute sometimes, that leaves open space for them to say whatever they want…
Keke: What would you say the hardest part of it all was for you?
Karrueche: Um, jeez. I guess I would say the heartbreak because it was a real situation…
Karrueche starts to cry.
Keke: What was the heartbreak, mami? It’s okay, we can take a second…We all feel you, we all feel you.
Karrueche: Yeah, it was a real life situation…
The entire interview will air Wednesday at 5pm est on BET. For now watch the preview below
Since Rihanna and Chris Brown called it quits initially, Drake has always had a thing for Rih Rih ultimately causing a feud between the two men. The two even came to blows with bottles in a night club back in 2012. But it looks as though the two have squashed their beef and let bygones be bygones. Drizzy and Breezy were in the studio together a few nights ago along with Tyga and a few friends.
No word as to what they duo was working on, maybe a possible Fan Of A Fan 2 mix-tape or even some tracks off their upcoming albums. If you all remember, the two were not always feuding. The first track they were ever on together was four years ago on “Deuces.”
Our eyes and ears are open !
Wonder what Rihanna has to say about all of this ?
Tiara Thomas, the original female lead vocal on Wale’s track “Bad”, sat down with Laura Stylez on HOT97 to clear the air on the situation with MMG artist Wale.
As we all know “Bad” became the hottest track of the summer and instantly went #40 on the Billboard Top 100. Things got a little rocky between the artist shortly after Tiara decided to sign with Producer Rico Love’s, Division 1 label. Consequently Tiara was replace with Rihanna on the track and once word got out fans immediately went to Twitter calling Tiara disloyal to Wale and all that he had done for her over the years.
Earlier in the year Wale went to Hot97 and stated that Tiara met Rico through him which is why he felt so betrayed by her. Wale also stated he waited so long to sign her because he did not want to scare her off with paperwork and rather show her what he could do first. Well Tiara tells a different side of the story.
Excerpts from the interview below
The Wale Situation
“What happened with that particular situation was I wrote “Bad” on my guitar. I did a Trillville cover. That “Some Cut” song. I did an acoustic cover of it. I had to think of something catchy. A catchy hook to sing along with this, so I just freestyled the hook for “Bad.” My friend Kelson and I actually produced the song in his bedroom. We put it on YouTube and ten months later, Wale heard it and he was like, ‘I want to put my verses on it.’ My manager at the time was like, ‘Wale this is your next single.’ I think he listened to it and he put verses on it.
