Looks We Love: Rihanna For Balmain Spring 2014

Yesterday, I posted a few pics Rihanna posted from her new Balmain Spring 2014 Campaign. She has graced us with more pictures from the campaign that will appear as ads starting in January.  


Seriously, if bad girl Ri Ri ever decided to stop making music she could have a career as a model. Gorgeous!

Looks We Love: Rihanna For Harper’s Bazaar August 2012

Rihanna is featured in the most recent issue of Harper’s Bazaar and rocking the sleekest designer looks.  What I love about the feature is that she stepped away from the rockstar looks (although I do love them) to show off her softer side.

NEW MUSIC: Drake Feat. Rihanna “Take Care” Video

Drake finally released the highly anticipated video for his hit song with Rihanna, “Take Care.” I love this song so I’m glad the visuals for the track were finally released.  It’s an simple, artistic video displaying the imitate, humble side of Drake.

NEW MUSIC: Rihanna “You Da One” Video

If you don’t have the Talk That Talk album by now, I’d suggest you get it. I have listened to it non-stop for the past three weeks! So of course I was excited to find out this morning that Rihanna dropped a new video for her second single “You Da One.”

In the black and white video, Rihanna shows off her sex appeal (which isn’t heard for her to do) in a blonde wig, fishnets and a body suit.  It’s definitely more simplistic than her “We Found Love” video but artistic none the less.

Check it out!

Love Is A Drug: Rihanna’s “We Found Love” Video

You all know by now that I love a video that tells a story! Rihanna did not disappoint with her newest video for “We Found Love.”  The song is the first single off her upcoming album Talk That Talk.  The video depicts Rihanna and her lover in an emotional, drug  fueled romance.  Those images really tell the story of how love can be just as addictive and destructive as drugs.  Considering her romantic interest in the video played by model Dudley O’Shaughnessy rocks blonde hair for the video, many can’t help but wonder, is this video suppose to represent her old relationship with C. Breezy?

Check it out!

Not sure if I love the song, but the video is hot!  And I’m so glad she is no longer rocking that red hair!!!!

Rihanna Portrays A Serious Issue In “Man Down” Video

I have been anxiously waiting for the “Man Down” video and it finally premiered last night on 106 & Park. I absolutely LOVE this song; “Man Down” is definitely an anthem for this summer.   The song is about breaking a man’s heart however the video tells a different story;  Instead of visually telling the story of a man who is broken hearted, Rihanna tells the story of a woman who is raped after a party.

Check it out! 


I checked out various blog sites to see what people thought of the video. Some thought it was beautiful and were glad to finally see a story line. Others were outraged that Rihanna would premiere a video about such violence (rape and murder). While I wasn’t expecting this storyline to be portrayed in the video, I’m not mad at all that Rihanna took this route. I do not think it’s anything worse than what we’ve seen on television and it has people talking about a topic that is not discussed enough. 

The video is completely different than the oversexed Rihanna we’ve seen. Has anyone else noticed that she has toned down her image at various events recently?  Would you rather see this video or see a R&B artist wearing a strip of cloth and throwing their goodies everywhere?  Now what message do those videos send to young girls? We have seen a lot worse in videos than what was portrayed in “Man Down.” Believe me, when it comes to music videos, we’ve seen a  lot worse than what was portrayed in “Man Down.”

What to do you think of the video?

NEW MUSIC: Kanye West ft. Rihanna & Kid Cudi “All Of The Lights”

I LOVE “All Of The Lights” from Kanye West’s most recent album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. However, the video is not as impressive; it won’t have people talking like his “Runway” and “Power” videos.It begins with a little girl walking the streets of New York and then it randomly transitions to a lot of bright colors.  Fellas, you all will definitely enjoy Rihanna’s appearance.

NEW MUSIC: Rihanna S&M Video

Rihanna released her new video, “S&M”, flaunting her freaky side while responding to media about her bad girl persona:

“Cause I may be bad but I’m perfectly good at it. Sex in the air. I don’t care, I love the smell of it.  Sticks and stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me.”

Well alright then! The video is colorful and playful; she somehow gets away with pushing the sex envelope without going TOO overboard like other artists. However, the song isn’t great. Like her previous single, “What’s My Name?,” it sounds like she’s singing the same 2 lines over and over again (although, What’s My Name?” is my jam!)   


What do you think of her new video?? I see the red wig still looks a mess! Just in case you were wondering, S&M stands for Sadomasochism.
