Rihanna - Unapologetic No More: Rihanna Says Sorry To Frustrated 777 Journalists

Rihanna’s ostentatious 777 tour has been making the headlines all week and quite frankly, Rhi-Rhi hasn’t come out of it looking good, at all.

The concert reviews may have been glowing but the journalists who had been invited on the special 777 plane, jet-setting across the world with the Barbadian star as she attempts to perform 7 shows in 7 cities, in 7 different countries, across 7 days, probably wasn’t quite what they were expecting.

Rihanna’s press office must have been sent into panic mode, because the star had to explain to the bored scribes why she hadn’t been partying with them on the plane, making the 777 tour the stuff of pop legend. “I had to preserve my health. Normally, I'd be back here popping bottles with y'all,” she said, according to US magazine. “I had to preserve my voice. I was worried about my body more than partying on the plane, so I had to just sleep whenever I could. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did.” She was clearly aware of just how much fun had been had on that plane, because she asked to “see the naked Australian!” in reference to the Aussie shock jock who decided to liven things up a bit by streaking through the plane, completely naked.

The ambitious tour may have turned out to be a bit of a damp squib for the journos expecting scandal and outrage but Rihanna insisted that she’d have fun and would do it again. It’s just a good job she’d never decided to name the tour after the album, as Unapologetic is exactly what she wasn’t, by the end. “I know you guys barely got any dirt,” she apologized to the gathering of desperate hacks, still clutching their empty notebooks at the end of the ride. “It's impossible to spend time with everybody, and I'm sorry I didn't.” Not quite the rock and roll fable we were all hoping for then. 

The highlight of the 777 plane ride: an Australian streaker...

Think that sounds romantic? Well, the details make it considerably less so. To pop star’s not-so-secret admirer was a 53-year-old homeless man, who took it upon himself to stalk and harass RiRi.

Rihanna
This treatment put Rihanna "in fear for her physical safety."

And his letters were definitely on the wrong side of emotional. According to the New York Daily News, he repeatedly called Rihanna a b---h in his missives, and threatened to “bum (rush) in her apartment”.

The man allegedly used an employee of the singer to deliver the letters. Traveling didn’t help Rihanna either. The man even sent her some twisted love notes in California. The man, James McGlynn even tried to make a personal visit a few times. According to The News, he went to her Lafayette Str. Building twice – once at 6.30AM and then again at midnight on July 8, according to the authorities.His third visit was around noon on July 11, but he was not arrested until about 6 p.m. Thursday.

Not many things can put Rihanna down, but outright harassment is one of them.

The story just gets increasingly bizarre from there. At his arraignment, McGlynn allegedly claimed Rihanna and Jay Z ripped off material from him. He also screamed at the judge “you are lying” when he was told he wouldn’t be allowed to represent himself.

The man, who has at least a dozen arrests on his rap sheet, including four busts for trespassing, was held without bail following his arraignment Friday evening.

Everything You Need To Know About Drake's 'Views From The 6' 4287460 News

The world’s favorite Canadian rapper has announced another album. “Views From The 6”, Drake’s fourth offering so far, will be released under the emerging OVO Sound, Drake’s own label. Although he’s announced the album, according to Rolling Stone recording won’t begin until after his tour with Lil Wayne concludes on September 27th, 2014, and the album itself likely won’t drop until spring of next year. Drake is currently set to perform his sold-out OVO Fest in Toronto, Canada alongside Outkast and mystery guests, beginning August 3rd, after which he’ll move on to his international tour and then the studio.

Though theories abound about the vague title, one popular speculation as told by Billboard.com claims it as a reference to his hometown of Toronto, where the primary area codes are 416 and 647. Friend and fellow OVO Sound musician Jimmy Prime reportedly gave Toronto the nickname of “The 6” due to the codes’ common digit. Coupled with his video for “Started From The Bottom” which depicted him working in Canadian chain Shoppers Drug Mart and rapping in the snow, “Views From The 6” lies naturally within the same vein as his frequent Toronto shoutouts.

Drake was recently nominated for the prestigious Polaris Prize for his third record “Nothing Was The Same”. He’ll be competing against Arcade Fire, Shad, and Mac Demarco among others, but with such a prolific fanbase and slew of recent projects, he and the “Reflektor” stars are definite favourites for the award.

As we previously reported, Drake has been spotted recording with rapper Chris Brown, marking the end of their public feud over singer Rihanna and the beginning of a “professional friendship”. With Drake signed on to produce Chris Brown’s newest album, we may be able to expect the latter returning the favour via a Chris Brown collaboration on “Views From The Six”.

Drake will be hosting the ESPYs (Excellence In Sports Performance Yearly Awards) on ESPN, so fans won't have to wait too long for their next glimpse. Although we're grateful for another album, with a release date a year away, maybe Drake should have just waited to let us know - the anticipation is cruel.

Rihanna Causes Controversy With #FreePalestine" Tweet, Deletes It Moments Later 4286918 News

Rihanna and social media are becoming a bad mix.

The 26 year-old songstress took to Twitter to show her support for Palestine during the country's conflict with Israel.

"#FreePalestine," RiRi posted on Tuesday (July 15th), but only moments later she decided to delete the tweet.

Unfortunately the 'Diamonds' singer wasn't quick enough, and as soon as the post was uploaded, it was retweeted nearly 70,000 times.

But according to the recording artist's close friend, she never meant to send the tweet out in the first place.

"She deleted it because it was never meant to be tweeted," the source said to TMZ. "She didn't even realize it was a tweet until she started hearing from her fans."

Rihanna was apparently reading about the Israel-Gaza conflict online, and not long after clicking a link, her followers began asking about the tweet. However, this explanation does sound fictitious as it is impossible to share a tweet without typing the message or cutting and pasting it, which is followed by clicking the 'Tweet' icon.

Another source reiterated to the gossip site, "she is pro-peace," adding, "She doesn't want innocent people dying."

Hours after taking down the original tweet, Rihanna commented on the two nation's conflict once again, but this time being more politically correct. "Let's pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Is there any hope?," she wrote.

The Grammy-winning singer isn't the only high-profile name to be caught out by social media. NBA star Dwight Howard also tweeted the same message after a follower asked him for help.

"@DwightHoward this is Gaza, Palestine being bombed by Israel," @NckJ6 tweeted Howard Saturday. "151 innocent civilians have been killed thus far."

Howard replied, "@NckJ6 wow how can I help."

"@DwightHoward honestly best thing to do is spread awareness and tell everyone you can," @NckJ6 added. "Many innocent lives are at stake #FreePalestine."

Howard also promptly deleted the tweet shortly after posting it, and he even offered an apology to his 5.2 million followers. "Previous tweet was a mistake, I have never commented on international politics and never will," he tweeted on Saturday (July 12th). Adding, "I apologize if I offended anyone with my previous tweet, it was a mistake!"

Chris Brown and Drake, Arch Enemies, Recording Together 4282201 News

Enemies Chris Brown and Drake appear to have put their personal differences aside, all in the name of music. Probably pretty bad music, but music nonetheless. The pair, who have been feuding over Rihanna for years, have been snapped in the studio together. 

<iframe src="//instagram.com/p/qTu8NJxZf-/embed/" width="635" height="710" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>

Drake posted a photograph of the pair last night, with Brown looking like he's getting into whatever music they're making together. It's pretty surprising that the pair are even in the same room together given the massive brawl they were involved in at the W.i.P nightclub in New York some two years ago. It was a bloody and brutal fight which left Chris and his bodyguard with injuries and NBA star Tony Parker with a black eye. 

More: Drake and Chris Brown spotted in studio together

It is believed Brown sent a bottle of champagne to Drake's table as a peace offering, but received a pretty unsavoury note concerning Rihanna in return. 

At the time, a huge lawsuit was filed against Entertainment Enterprises, the company who owns the nightclub, but it was subsequently dismissed nearly a year after it was first filed.

Chris BrownChris Brown is working with Drake

When speaking with GQ following the incident, Drake said he doubted he would ever work with Brown.

"I don't want my name to be synonymous with that guy's name," he said in 2013. "I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that's not going to happen."

Brown was convicted of an assault on Rihanna in 2008 and remains on probation for the attack. Rihanna and Drake have a relationship dating back to 2009 though they are said to have separated earlier this year.

Eminem Lands Second Diamond Single Award - A Look At His Biggest Singles 4242640 News

After thirteen Grammy Awards, six number one albums, and a billion other accomplishments to his name, rapper Eminem is still going strong. This is because he’s the first artist ever to receive two Digital Single Diamond Awards from the RIAA. It’s impressive mostly because “Diamond” in music certification means that something sold ten million, and ten million is kind of a lot. Also because he’s apparently the first ever to do it. Even though Eminem’s had his fair share of popular singles in his day, he’s not the first that comes to mind when you think of huge songs, is he?

Eminem
Eminem is the first artist to earn two Digital Diamond Single awards

So, which were the ones to nab him the title? It shouldn’t come as a surprise when ‘Love The Way You Lie’ featuring Rihanna was the first Diamond track, because that song was absolutely everywhere when it was first released back in 2010. Since then, it has gone on to sell over eleven million copies digitally. The lead single from that same album (Recovery) was the one to give Eminem the honor, as ‘Not Afraid’ just recently passed the ten million mark. When you think about the success he’s had with singles, you have to wonder what made ‘Not Afraid’ his big seller instead of his more radio-friendly tracks, but as catchy as they were, none of them comes close to what those two have sold.

In fact, it might be hard to believe that the single that put Slim on the map, ‘The Real Slim Shady,’ has only sold four million copies to date, while the infectious lead track off his critically acclaimed The Eminem Show, ‘Without Me,’ never even broke a million. Of course, this probably has to do with the fact that iTunes wasn’t really a huge thing back then, and when people bought singles, they literally bought a disc with the one song on it. If those songs had been released now, would they perform differently? In 2002, nothing was going to stop ‘Lose Yourself,’ the track off the 8 Mile soundtrack, from being a massive hit. It scored Eminem the first number one single of his career and surpassed sales of five million. Some of his biggest tracks pre-Recovery, however, were from his 2009 LP, Relapse. ‘Crack a Bottle’ and ‘We Made You’ went double and triple platinum, respectively.

Eminem Rapping'The Monster' could be the rapper's next Diamond hit someday

But, it may not be long before Eminem adds another Diamond Single award to his collection again. Given the success of Rihanna + Em the first time around, it’s only natural that the duo gave it another go for a cut off his most recent record, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. The result was ‘The Monster,’ and it’s probably the poppiest track in Eminem’s catalog -- the type of music he’d even mock in his raps so many years ago -- but it’s damn good, and it’s his best selling single that hasn’t gone Diamond with almost six million sold so far. If it took over four years for ‘Not Afraid’ to reach the mark, maybe it’s only a matter of time until ‘The Monster’ gives Eminem a third Diamond plaque -- something that he’s proved is so rightfully his.

Celebrity Break-Ins And Crazed Fans: When Fans Break Into Celebrity Homes 4241078 News

Oscar-winning Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock has just recently discovered how far some fans will go to come into contact with their idols as a man broke into her Beverly Hills home in the early hours on Tuesday. Since being arrested, the man who has been identified as Joshua Corbett who is aged 39 and resides in the San Fernando valley, Los Angeles.

Sandra Bullock At The DGA AwardsA man broke into Bullock's Beverly Hills home while she was inside.

Despite the apparent exclusivity and subsequent security that Beverly Hills affords inhabitants, Bullock’s run-in with the obsessive fan proves that they will often go to ridiculous measures in order to gain recognition from the subject of their adoration. It also presents a worrying security concern as a lapse in mental health often fuels these celebrity obsessions. Most famously, John Hinckley Jr’s assassination attempt on then President, Ronald Raegan, was seen by Hinckley as a way of courting the attention of actress Jodie Foster. But to have a fan invade one’s personal space and most intimate of dwellings is a unsettling notion for most people, never mind those of the celebrity calibre. Here are a selection of unfortunate celebs who’ve been subject to break-ins, robberies and warped fans who got a little too close for comfort.

 Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth Arrives In Paris
The Queen was rudely awakened by a man in her bedroom in 1982.

Known as the biggest royal security breach of the 20th Century, a steel erector and safe-breaker named Michael Fagan broke into Buckingham Palace in 1982 and managed to enter the Queen’s bedroom, waking her before swiftly leaving and eventually being caught by police. Fagan reportedly ate cheese and crackers, drank half a bottle of white wine and had a short rest on the throne during his brief visit to the heart of the British monarchy. It was a rude wake-up call for the Elizabeth II and proved that despite a fourteen foot fence, copious alarms and security guards, the head of state was still vulnerable. 

The Bling Ring

Lindsey Lohan Attends Gabriellas Gala
Lohan, along with several other celebrities, were victims of The Bling Ring.

The subject of Sofia Coppola’s 2013 film starring Emma Watson, The Bling Ring gang were a group of seven teenagers who broke into a selection of celebrities homes between 2008 and 2009, resulting in thefts of possessions amounting to somewhere in the region of $3 million. Paris Hilton was the most prolific victim of the burglaries and her house was robbed on at least five occasions. Other victims of the gang included The Hills star Audrina Partridge, OC actress Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox as well as Lindsey Lohan. When the gang were finally caught by police, they discovered plans to rob the homes of Miley Cyrus, Zac Efron, Hilary Duff and Vanessa Hudgens.

Kate Moss

Moss was robbed of a portrait by street artists Banksy.

As the English supermodel and fashion icon slept soundly in her bed, thieves broke into her London home to relieve her of some truly iconic artwork which included a portrait by the artist Banksy, worth a reported $140,000. Moss, then boyfriend Jamie Ince and her mother, Linda, were sleeping upstairs as robbers made a sneaky entrance into the luxury apartment. Theories abounded that it was the work of either The Bling Ring themselves, some of which were still at large at this point in 2010, or a copycat robber. Either way, the artwork has yet to be recovered.

P Diddy

Puff Daddy Celebrates Memorial Day
An intruder ate Diddy's food and tried on his clothes.

Diddy’s properties have been targeted many times over the years but one break-in in particular sticks out as a particularly odd occurrence of a similar vein to that which befell the Queen in 1982. 30 year-old Quamine Taylor successfully broke into Diddy’s property via an unlocked basement window, but instead of stuffing as many diamond watches and hard cash into his pockets and doing a runner, Taylor hung around the house and made himself right at home. Upon finally being caught, Taylor explained that it was far from the first time he had broken into the rapper’s property, and had done so on multiple occasions under the reuse that he was part of Diddy’s extended entourage. Whilst inside the property, Taylor helped himself to the rapper’s food and drink and modelled the clothes found inside Diddy’s wardrobe.

Britney Spears

Britney Spears Attends Elton John's Aids Benefit
Spears has been the victim of several instances of harrassment by fans.

In an incredible act of desperation at integrating with Britney’s inner circle, Canadian man Daniel Lechamp travelled to her family’s home in Louisiana where he allegedly harassed the singer’s parents. He pleaded guilty to charges of harassment and was gifted a restraining order for his efforts to get near the singer. However, Lechamp seemed unperturbed by this setback and busied himself finding fresh ways of gaining proximity to the singer. The self-styled musician shaved his beard in an effort to look less like a stalker and performed a song on the TV program Celebrity Justice in honour of Spears.

Miley Cyrus In Concert
A man tried to break into Cyrus' house whilst carrying a pair of scissors.

In October 2013, a forty year-old man attempted to break into the L.A home of the popstar whilst carrying a pair of scissors. Upon being apprehended by law enforcement officers, Jason Louis Rivera claimed he was a friend of the “Wreckingball” singer as well as his wife. Rivera was charged with trespassing and jailed. Cyrus also bestowed upon him a three year restraining order for his efforts.

Joss Stone

Joss Stone Leaves Abbey Road
Joss Stone was the target of a brutal murder plot.

In a plot that seems like a work of fiction, Junior Bradshaw and Kevin Liverpool conspired to kidnap the singer, decapitate her and dump her in a river. Police found a selection of objects in the car to implicate the pair including two samurai swords, knives, a hammer, a black bag and gloves as well as written plans on how the kidnapping would be carried out. Notes in the car also suggested the pair had decided to kill Stone because they disapproved of her invite to the Royal Wedding. The two were charged with conspiring to kidnap and murder in 2013.

Rihanna At The MTV Awards
Rihanna was forced to sell her home after it was targeted too many times by intruders.

Joathan Whooper, a man claiming to be Rihanna’s future husband, made several attempts at gaining access to the singer’s L.A property. In one last attempt, he gained access by throwing a chair through and window and commenced in robbing the house. Whooper received a life-long restraining order from the pop-star and another was given to different intruder, Robert Melanson, who was caught walking on the roof of Rihanna’s house. Sensibly, after so many problems, Rihanna swiftly put her property on the market.

But to have a fan invade one’s personal space and most intimate of dwellings is a unsettling notion for most people, never mind those of the celebrity calibre. Here are a selection of unfortunate celebs who’ve been subject to break-ins, robberies and warped fans who got a little too close for comfort.

 Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth Arrives In Paris
The Queen was rudely awakened by a man in her bedroom in 1982.

Known as the biggest royal security breach of the 20th Century, a steel erector and safe-breaker named Michael Fagan broke into Buckingham Palace in 1982 and managed to enter the Queen’s bedroom, waking her before swiftly leaving and eventually being caught by police. Fagan reportedly ate cheese and crackers, drank half a bottle of white wine and had a short rest on the throne during his brief visit to the heart of the British monarchy. It was a rude wake-up call for the Elizabeth II and proved that despite a fourteen foot fence, copious alarms and security guards, the head of state was still vulnerable. 

The Bling Ring

Lindsey Lohan Attends Gabriellas Gala
Lohan, along with several other celebrities, were victims of The Bling Ring.

The subject of Sofia Coppola’s 2013 film starring Emma Watson, The Bling Ring gang were a group of seven teenagers who broke into a selection of celebrities homes between 2008 and 2009, resulting in thefts of possessions amounting to somewhere in the region of $3 million. Paris Hilton was the most prolific victim of the burglaries and her house was robbed on at least five occasions. Other victims of the gang included The Hills star Audrina Partridge, OC actress Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox as well as Lindsey Lohan. When the gang were finally caught by police, they discovered plans to rob the homes of Miley Cyrus, Zac Efron, Hilary Duff and Vanessa Hudgens.

Kate Moss

Kate Moss At Launch Of Her Topshop Collection
Moss was robbed of a portrait by street artists Banksy.

As the English supermodel and fashion icon slept soundly in her bed, thieves broke into her London home to relieve her of some truly iconic artwork which included a portrait by the artist Banksy, worth a reported $140,000. Moss, then boyfriend Jamie Ince and her mother, Linda, were sleeping upstairs as robbers made a sneaky entrance into the luxury apartment. Theories abounded that it was the work of either The Bling Ring themselves, some of which were still at large at this point in 2010, or a copycat robber. Either way, the artwork has yet to be recovered.

P Diddy

Puff Daddy Celebrates Memorial Day
An intruder ate Diddy's food and tried on his clothes.

Diddy’s properties have been targeted many times over the years but one break-in in particular sticks out as a particularly odd occurrence of a similar vein to that which befell the Queen in 1982. 30 year-old Quamine Taylor successfully broke into Diddy’s property via an unlocked basement window, but instead of stuffing as many diamond watches and hard cash into his pockets and doing a runner, Taylor hung around the house and made himself right at home. Upon finally being caught, Taylor explained that it was far from the first time he had broken into the rapper’s property, and had done so on multiple occasions under the reuse that he was part of Diddy’s extended entourage. Whilst inside the property, Taylor helped himself to the rapper’s food and drink and modelled the clothes found inside Diddy’s wardrobe.

Britney Spears

Britney Spears Attends Elton John's Aids Benefit
Spears has been the victim of several instances of harrassment by fans.

In an incredible act of desperation at integrating with Britney’s inner circle, Canadian man Daniel Lechamp travelled to her family’s home in Louisiana where he allegedly harassed the singer’s parents. He pleaded guilty to charges of harassment and was gifted a restraining order for his efforts to get near the singer. However, Lechamp seemed unperturbed by this setback and busied himself finding fresh ways of gaining proximity to the singer. The self-styled musician shaved his beard in an effort to look less like a stalker and performed a song on the TV program Celebrity Justice in honour of Spears.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus In Concert
A man tried to break into Cyrus' house whilst carrying a pair of scissors.

In October 2013, a forty year-old man attempted to break into the L.A home of the popstar whilst carrying a pair of scissors. Upon being apprehended by law enforcement officers, Jason Louis Rivera claimed he was a friend of the “Wreckingball” singer as well as his wife. Rivera was charged with trespassing and jailed. Cyrus also bestowed upon him a three year restraining order for his efforts.

Joss Stone

Joss Stone Leaves Abbey Road
Joss Stone was the target of a brutal murder plot.

In a plot that seems like a work of fiction, Junior Bradshaw and Kevin Liverpool conspired to kidnap the singer, decapitate her and dump her in a river. Police found a selection of objects in the car to implicate the pair including two samurai swords, knives, a hammer, a black bag and gloves as well as written plans on how the kidnapping would be carried out. Notes in the car also suggested the pair had decided to kill Stone because they disapproved of her invite to the Royal Wedding. The two were charged with conspiring to kidnap and murder in 2013.

Rihanna

Rihanna At The MTV Awards
Rihanna was forced to sell her home after it was targeted too many times by intruders.

Joathan Whooper, a man claiming to be Rihanna’s future husband, made several attempts at gaining access to the singer’s L.A property. In one last attempt, he gained access by throwing a chair through and window and commenced in robbing the house. Whooper received a life-long restraining order from the pop-star and another was given to different intruder, Robert Melanson, who was caught walking on the roof of Rihanna’s house. Sensibly, after so many problems, Rihanna swiftly put her property on the market.

The Boobycake Drama: Rihanna Vs. TLC 4236573 News

Don’t nobody criticise Rihanna for putting her “boobycakes" on display! On a recent interview with Australian talk show Sunrise, TLC’s Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins made a comment, allegedly about Rihanna, that the “Monster” singer is clearly amused by. In the interview, which featured T-Boz and fellow band member Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, a voice over claims the singers singled out Rihanna and her penchant for getting nekkid in public.

“Every time I see you you don’t have to be naked,” T-Boz said, adding, “We became the biggest selling group of all time with our clothes on…it’s easy to sell sex.” Now, the first thing we noticed is that T-Boz didn’t directly use Rihanna’s name in the interview, or at least isn’t shown to use it herself. It’s the voiceover that actually singles out Rihanna, although we can’t imagine the show would have so intentionally gone out of their way to have a bit of a celebrity sh*t stir…or would they?

Well, either way, Rihanna seemed more amused than annoyed about the whole thing. Her reaction? Firstly to post an image of TLC in earlier days, including now-deceased member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes…all without their tops on and holding on to their “boobycakes” (the word that T-Boz uses to describe breasts in the Sunrise interview).

A little contradictory to what they said in their interview, although to be fair, the band have been together 22 years, Lopes died in a car crash in 2002, so the picture had to have been taken prior to her death. That’s quite a long time ago and although it is a little hypocritical to slam stars who take their clothes off, it’s likely they’ve either forgotten the image or consider themselves too mature to take nude photos these days.

Not wanting to let the situation escalate any further, T-Boz addressed it on her own Twitter account.

Rihanna Responds To TLC Criticism By Sharing Old Topless Photo Of Girl Band 4232747 News

Rihanna isn't backing down!

The 26 year-old singer was recently blasted by TLC's Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas for using the "sex sells" tactic to promote herself.

The band members made the criticisms when appeared on Australia's Sunrise 7 on Thursday (June 5th), ahead of their gig in Sydney.

"Every time I see you, you don't have to be naked," T-Boz said of Rihanna. "It's hard for us to say anything because anytime we do, they say, 'Oh TLC must be jealous,' but I call a spade a spade.

"We became the biggest girl selling group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot," she added. "We could go around too with booby cakes [breasts] out all day long."

In response to this, RiRi took to Twitter and changed the background of her Twitter page to an old photograph of the TLC singers posing topless, thus proving that they must have also used the "sex sells" tactic at least one time.

To defend herself even further, the 'Diamonds' singer then posted a snap of herself sticking her tongue out, with the caption: "When there's no changing the fact that I'm me, and they're well...they're them."

TLC Criticises Rihanna's "Booby Cakes" Costume - 'We Kept Our Clothes On' 4232632 News

Rihanna has responded to TLC's comments about her brazen and bare breasted appearance at Monday (2nd June) night's CFDA awards.

RihannaRihanna's dress has certainly prompted discussion.

The 26-year-old appeared wearing a lilac coloured, embellished dress which left very little to the imagination. The dress was see-through ensuring everyone (including the awaiting paparazzi) got a good look at Rihanna's backside and breasts. Her little modestly was protected by a tiny pair of knickers and a small fur stole.

Rihanna's dress and matching hat certainly caused a sensation with many publications and her own fans commenting on her daring fashion decision. Those who commented included girl group TLC, consisting of Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins and Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas. As MTV reports, the pair recently spoke to an Australian journalist ahead of their Sydney concert. When asked about Rihanna's appearances, the group stated they had never resorted to taking their clothes off and had been highly successful.

44-year-old T-Boz addressed Rihanna saying "Every time I see you, you don't have to be naked. It's hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say, 'Oh TLC must be jealous', but I call a spade a spade." 43-year-old Chilli also made a comment, stating "We became the biggest selling girl group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot. We could go around too with booby cakes out all day long."

Rihanna's fashion choice was in honour of the late Josephine Baker whose birthday was the following day. The 20's starlet frequently sported daring attire and this was one of the reasons some fashion editors chose to praise Rihanna's unconventional attire. Rihanna celebrated Baker's birthday and tweeted "Happy birthday to the late Josephine Baker! You have and will continue to inspire us women for decades to come!" She also attached a picture of Baker alongside her costume for the CFDA awards.
