This week Rihanna’s single “Right Now” made it to No. 1 on the dance charts marking her 20th No.1 Dance Single, surpassing Janet Jackson’s previous record of 19.
Rihanna is second only to Madonna who owns the top spot with 43 No. 1 Dance Singles.
Obviously she’s dumped the blonde weave for the braids.
Lady Gaga recently got naked in the woods for
performance artist Marina Abramovic.
The results were taped for a Kickstarter campaign
for The Marina Abramovic Institute.
In the footage, we see Gaga performing a series of
exercises “designed to heighten participants’
awareness of their physical and mental experience
in the present moment.”
Practically speaking, it means we see one of the
world’s biggest celebrities emitting a loud tone and
then walking around upstate New York fully nude.
President Obama recently sat down with Amazon for a Kindle Singles interview, and a question about the “American Dream” prompted some talk
about… Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Obama, who once called West a “jackass,” was asked about things
he yearned for as a child, and began discussing the shift in expectations and attitude among contemporary young people.
“There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” the President said of his own coming-of-age experience.
He continued, “Kids weren’t monitoring everyday what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”
This “change in culture,” with greater and constant access to the trappings of celebrity and fame, has distorted how many young Americans see success, argued Obama.
Miley Cyrus dons couture and and rides a motorcycle in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
The “We Can’t Stop” singer wears an array of high-fashion pieces for the spread, shot by famed
photographer Terry Richardson.

Brown, Cyrus talked about her obsession with the

The issue hits newsstands on August 20.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are “getting ready for
their new arrivals,” declares OK! As you’ll recall, last month the magazine falsely told the world that Jolie was expecting twins, just the latest in an embarrassing string of miscues for the outlet, which
has reported multiple fake “secret weddings” in the past for Jolie and Pitt, along “baby news” and “baby joy” stories that never panned out.
Unwilling to join reality, OK! is back at it with a new cover story that pretends Jolie and Pitt are currently expecting twins.
Of course, once you actually open the magazine, OK! quickly retreats to the position that the couple is “preparing” to add “two more babies to their brood.”
“Angie’s on a mission,” one so-called “pal” explains to the magazine. “She knows she doesn’t have a lot of time to safely make this happen. She and Brad would love to get pregnant naturally, but because they’re on a time crunch they’ve pretty much accepted that IVF will be the way to go. It will cut out a lot of time and they can greatly increase the chance of twins, which is the goal.”
Rihanna is being sued for allegedly refusing to
pay her grandmother Clara Brathwaite’s $150,000 funeral bill in full.
The star, whose beloved “Gran Gran Dolly” passed away in June 2012, sent her grandma’s body to Barbados for a ceremony complete with tents, multi-media screens and over the top floral arrangements.
But Rihanna felt the $150,000 bill was much too steep, and allegedly only paid a quarter of the sum, according to TMZ.
Beyonce is rocking a new look.
The singer took to Instagram on Wednesday night to debut a blonde pixie cut.
While the look is certainly fashionable, a shorter style probably has some safety benefits for the star, whose long locks got caught in a fan during a concert last month.
Drake is finally addressing the question on everyone’s mind: What does he think of Amanda Bynes?
As reported, in recent months the troubled star has made the singer the object of her affection and scorn, seemingly in equal measure.
From bizarrely tweeting that she wants Drake to “murder” her vagina, and calling him out for having “ugly downward facing eyes,” Bynes has seemed pretty obsessed — and yes, he’s noticed.
“I don’t even know who that is doing that or what that’s about. If that is her, I guess it’s a little weird and disturbing,” he tells XXL in the mag’s September cover story.
“It’s obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me,” continues the rapper. “Whoever is behind it, whether it’s her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going.”
Bynes is currently being held in a psychiatric hospital as doctors continue to evaluate her for mental illness.
