RihannaRihanna is returning to the big screen

While London model Cara has been doing her damn hardest to convince the world that acting is her biggest passion in life, despite her extensive work in the fashion industry, Rihanna has also been coasting along and getting involved in Hollywood - though her busy music-making schedule hasn't made it easy. So far she's only had cameos in 2012's 'Battleship' and 2013 comedy 'This Is the End' and one main role as the voice of Tip in the animated film 'Home'. But now she's taking it to the next level by landing an as yet undefined role in time-travelling sci-fi adventure 'Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets'.

One of the strangest stories of 2015 has been that of Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP leader who became the focus of controversy and no small amount of ridicule when her parents revealed that she was white, not black, back in June. However, Rihanna has stated some admiration for her, calling Dolezal “a bit of a hero” in a new interview.

Dolezal was a former leader for the Spokane, Washington chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and Rihanna claims that her deception was not that big a deal and helped change people’s perceptions, as well as continuing a discussion about race in America.

Rihanna Says She Wouldn't Join Taylor Swift Onstage


Rihanna Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift may be the toast of pretty much the entire world right now, but there’s one person who definitely doesn’t want to be part of her “squad”. Fellow pop star Rihanna has said that she wouldn’t join the ‘Bad Blood’ singer on stage if she was asked, because to her it wouldn’t make sense.

Throughout her 1989 World Tour, Swift has attracted tons of headlines for bringing a huge array of female celebrities – plus Matt LeBlanc, for some reason - up on stage with her. “Please welcome to the stage…” has become one of the most parodied phrases of the summer, ending up in that hilarious viral video.

Grace Jones Hits Out At Unoriginal Modern Pop Artists


Grace Jones Rihanna Nicki Minaj Miley Cyrus Rita Ora Lady GaGa

Grace Jones has unleashed a tirade of criticism at all manner of modern pop stars, from Minaj to Miley, by describing them as “middle of the stream” and lamenting the current state of the music industry, in her new autobiography.

‘I’ll Never Write My Memoirs’ is released on September 29th, but as a taster she has published a few excerpts from the new book via Time Out. In one of them, Jones complains that a whole host of pop stars have copied her style but have no “long-term vision”, coming off as unoriginal and therefore easily replaceable.

“Trends come along and people say, ‘follow that trend’,” she writes. “There’s a lot of that around at the moment: 'Be like Sasha Fierce. Be like Miley Cyrus. Be like Rihanna. Be like Lady GaGa. Be like Rita Ora and Sia. Be like Madonna.’ I cannot be like them – except to the extent that they are already being like me.”

Move Over Rihanna, Miss Piggy’s Here With Her Own Fabulous Rendition Of ‘BBHMM’


Rihanna The Muppets

A video in which scenes from Miss Piggy’s prolific Muppets career were remixed in a parody of Rihanna’s ‘B***h Better Have My Money’ (BBHMM) is pretty fabulous, if we’re completely honest. The 1 minute 40 second footage is a tribute to Miss Piggy, who is arguably a bigger diva than Rihanna. Whilst Rihanna’s video involves controversial violence, Miss Piggy’s is much more toned down yet the message remains the same: nobody messes with Miss Piggy and gets away with it!

Rihanna’s ‘B***h Better Have My Money’, or BBHMM for short, was released last month and immediately caused controversy. The music video for the song sees Rihanna kidnapping the wife of a man who has wronged her. Rihanna and other women working with her assault the woman on various occasions, at one point in the video tying her upside down by her feet from a barn building.

Home Review


Excellent

A sharp script and especially colourful imagery make this animated romp a lot more fun than expected, entertaining grown-ups just as much as the kids. It may be the usual frantic action comedy, but there's an edge to the humour and a continual stream of knowing gags and witty references that keep us laughing. As a result, the busy plot is surprisingly involving, and the action scenes are genuinely thrilling.

It opens in outer space with the Boov, a race of blobby creatures that are only good at one thing: running away from their sworn enemy the Gorg. Their leader Captain Smek (Steve Martin) has selected Earth as their next hiding place, so they swoop in and corral mankind into Happy Humantowns in the Australian Outback while the Boov occupy the cities, hilariously trying to make sense of everything they find there. But a Boov named Oh (Jim Parsons) sticks out from the hive-like community. Friendlier and more curious than he should be, he inadvertently alerts the Gorg to their location. So he goes on the run, meeting up with the human teen girl Tip (Rihanna), who has managed to hide out with her chubby cat Pig and now wants to find her mother (Jennifer Lopez). Pursued by Smek and top cop Kyle (Matt Jones), Oh and Tip must dart around the globe to solve both of their predicaments.

Based on Adam Rex's novel The True Meaning of Smekday, the story is packed with lively twists and turns, and the filmmakers bring it to life with energy, humour and some real emotion. The animators pull out all the stops as they play with outrageous colours and eye-catching action, while the Boov's ability to selectively control gravity adds plenty of scope for additional mayhem. For example, Oh and Tip travel the globe in a car that Oh soups up Back to the Future-style so they can fly to Boov central command in Paris and then on to Australia. These kinds of knowing film references flit across the screen all the way through their adventure.
