Rihanna received a very interesting gift on Valentine’s Day. The singer tweeted a photo of a massive marijuana plant on Thursday, along with the caption, “Roses are green! Somebody knows how to make me happy.” It’s not known whether Rihanna’s secret admirer was Chris Brown. She reportedly spent the holiday solo, attending a Ne-Yoconcert in Los Angeles.
She also tweeted “Happy Valentines Day. Today the day fa lovin not hatin so to cats like you and I it’s just another day…” But the Bajan superstar spent Valentines night without on and off boyfriend Chris Brown, prompting rumours of another fall-out. She dolled herself up to the max in a slinky orange dress to watch an Usher concert in Los Angeles while Chris flirted with his millions of fans on Twitter.
Rihanna’s Stay music video has her bare naked, video below. The singer is naked — and remains nude — for the entire video, which features her in a bath and duetting withMikky Ekko. The video is pretty emotional, and includes a slight breakdown near the end, with one tear running down Rihanna’s cheek.
She looks amazing, but the focus isn’t so much her body as the look of constant devastation on her face. Read into that emotion what you will, but it’s a beautiful video that broaden’s Rihanna’s emotional-musical palette. Nearly every song and video can possibly contain a Chris Brown subtext, but this Rihanna looks as if she’s caved into something.
Bob Marley tribute at 2013 Grammys features Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Sting, video below. The Grammys paid tribute to Bob Marley on Sunday with a segment featuring Rihanna,Sting, Bruno Mars, and the late reggae icon’s sons Ziggy and Damian. Mars opened with his own “Locked Out Of Heaven,” which gave way to The Police’s “Walking On The Moon,” and then a Rihanna-led group performance of Marley’s “Could You Be Loved.”
“I grew up listening to the Police. I grew up performing in bars, singing Police songs,” Bruno told MTV News in 2012. “I remember performing a song like ‘Roxanne,’ and you play those first couple of chords, and you hit that first note, and you watch the whole bar ignite.” Bruno went bigger than just blowing up a bar at the Grammys on Sunday night (February 10). He lit up the entire Staples Center, diving head-first into an electrifying version of “Locked Out of Heaven” during a retro performance worthy of a “Soul Train” special.

Rihanna arm in arm with Chris Brown to Court for Probation hearing, video and photos below. Chris Brown had a surprising person accompany him to his court hearing on Wednesday, it was Rihanna. Brown — whose ongoing probation case stems from assaulting his on-and-off girlfriend in 2009 — brought his mother and Rihanna with him to his progress report hearing, where she blew him a kiss before the proceedings got underway.
Afterward, they left together arm-in-arm. During the hearing, the judge requested more information before thoroughly examining whether Brownfaked his community service, as was alleged on Tuesday. Another hearing was scheduled for April 5.
Chris Brown faked completing community service, DA to pursue case. Prosecutors allege that Brown did not perform all of the community service he claims to have completed in Virginia in connection to his infamous Rihanna assault case. In the filed motion, the D.A. says there are “significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting” of Brown’s supposed community service.
The shocking turn of events revolves around a letter sent by Richmond police chief Bryan T. Norwood last September, claiming Brown had completed 202 days of service — more than the 180 required by law. Brown purportedly worked at Tappahannock Children’s Center, doing odd jobs, and also is said to have helped the city with “trash removal… public park clean up, washing City owned vehicles” and other tasks.
Rihanna defends Chris Brown romance, says things may go wrong but she’s happy. Rihanna reveals why she decided to reconcile with Chris Brown in the new issue of Rolling Stone, telling the magazine, “I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’smy mistake,” continues the singer.
She adds, ”After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.” Rihanna’s relationship with Brown — which seems to be in a near-constant state of flux — has been under much scrutiny ever since he assaulted her in 2009, and the performer says she knows most people don’t understand why she’s reunited with him.

Britney turns 30?! How did that happen? We swear she was just 21, in all her poppy princess glory. Yes, we’ve chosen to block out the intervening hot mess, head-shaving, baby-rearing, meltdown-having years. And fortunately she appears to have somewhat emerged on the other side.
