Fans and casual music lovers have waited all year, and now it appears Rihanna’s long-awaited new album is coming very soon. The pop star hosted a private event at the Mama Gallery in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, where the 27-year-old unveiled the artwork to her much-anticipated 8th solo album, ANTI. “This is my favorite album cover I’ve ever done,” said Rihanna before the album cover was revealed to attendees. Designed by Israeli artist Roy Nachum, the mainly red-and-white artwork features a poem written by Chloe Mitchell, that is written in Braille.

Braille translations are also featured on album’s back cover (see below) and interior artwork for ANTI. Both Rihanna and Nachum took on Instagram during the event to post the cover and announce the album, which serves as RiRi’s first full-length LP since 2012’s Unapologetic.

So far, Rihanna has released the singles “FourFiveSeconds,” “Bitch Better Have My Money” and “American Oxyen” to this point. Check out photos and footage from the event.

Those close to the late Sean Price know he had a wide array of homies from all walks of life. You see — P’s music was universal and appealed to audiences from all colors and creeds. But fans might not know that Hollywood star Ryan Phillippe was die-hard Ruck fan. The two reportedly also shared a real friendship and kept in contact.

In Sean’s honor, Ryan just revealed that he inked a piece on his forearm dedicated to his friend.




With her long-awaited eighth solo album on the way, Rihanna was chosen as cover star for FADER’s 100th issue. Now a week later, pop star serves as the face of Vanity Fair’s November 2015 issue. Shot by Annie Leibovitz in Old Havana, Cuba, the 27-year-old sits down with Vanity Fair’s Lisa Robinson in L.A., where they discuss RiRi’s badass rep pushed by the media, her last real relationship with Chris Brown, the difficulties of trying to find someone to settle down with, being discovered by Jay Z, domestic abuse, rekindling with Chris Brown for a second time, thoughts on Rachel Dolezal, past work with Eminem, her music and much more.

I honestly think how much fun it would be to live my reputation. People have this image of how wild and crazy I am, and I’m not everything they think of me. The reality is that the fame, the rumors—this picture means this, another picture means that—it really freaks me out. It made me back away from even wanting to attempt to date. It’s become second nature for me to just close that door and just be O.K. with that. I’m always concerned about whether people have good or bad intentions. —Rihanna

The cover story also features words from both Jay Z, Eminem and Roc Nation executive Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith. Check out some highlight quotes and photos from the cover story shoot below.

Over the weekend, Amber Rose organized a very impactful “slutwalk” which helped bring awareness to mental/verbal abuse directed at women simply based off their outfits or lifestyles. During the rally, she gave an emotional speech about how much she was hurt over things Kanye and Wiz say about her.

Well not long after, her and Wiz, popped on Instagram together. We’re not sure what this means for the lovers, but it looks like a good sign in mending their broken relationship.

Kanye, Travi$ Scott, Rihanna

The stars have made their way to the City of Love, for Paris Fashion Week. On Saturday night, Paris Vogue celebrated their 95th anniversary with a swanky dance party hosted by Emmanuelle Alt. Held in a Parisian castle, the theme of the night was lots of fun and dancing, moving away from the typical boring postering many events during Paris Fashion Week have become.

“All I wanted to do tonight was have a big party. I’ve been to so many fashion events that were, oh no—so many boring fashion parties. Tonight is about fun, and friends, and dancing,” said Emmanuelle Alt. Rihanna appeared at the all-night event, turning heads with a pink floor-length sheer dress, which she wore braless.

Kanye West arrived with mother-in-law Kris Jenner, her boyfriend Corey Gamble, and Travi$ Scott. Kanye went with a sporty look, wearing a navy football jersey, smiling throughout the event while catching up with Jared Leto and Zoë Kravitz. Kendall Jenner, Mos Def, and Bella Hadid were also spotted at the star-studded anniversary party.

Landing on the cover of The Fader‘s monumental 100th issue is something most artists would clear their entirely monthly schedule for (some for an entire year). But Rihanna? Nah.

RihRih, as she’s done for the past few year, does what she wants… when she wants. I mean, even with her fans begging her for a new album for 365 days straight, the pop icon hasn’t released a piece of solo music since, “BBHMM.” So don’t think she was going to be conventional when the coveted mag asked her to be apart of their historical issue.

Let me cut the sh*t. Rihanna did not give an interview for her cover story and journalist extraordinaire, Mary H.K. Choi, still bodied the piece.
