Surprise! Rihanna ‘s covering her body in more ink.
E! News has exclusively learned that the pop singer added to her extensive tat collection over the weekend while in the Dominican Republic, when famous celeb tattoo artist Bang Bang McCurdy and Cally-Jo of Bang Bang NYC tattoos flew to RiRi on Sunday to begin the 11-hour session.
The new body art was incorporated with the already existing Maori tattoo on Rihanna’s right hand, which she recently got to commemorate her recent trip to New Zealand during her Diamonds world tour, which was applied with a mallet and a chisel (ouch!).
Courtesy of Bang Bang McCurdy Bang Bang exclusively tells E! News, “We drew on her hand from 7 p.m. to midnight. We were drawing and changing things. I’d take a break and Cally-Jo would draw, then I’d draw…The inspiration was
henna art, we wanted something really decorative, feminine and
sexy. We thought that was the closest in style where we could shift
and make it look decorative.”
He continued, “She had something preexisting on her hand. So it
was a little bit of a cover up, but also making it look good, wanted
to make sure it flowed. We needed to work with what she already
had,” and added, that it was “difficult, because the stuff she already
had was a pattern on skin. We were trying to fit the body with what
she already had. Mend the two styles with a new style.
“Her hand is not something you can put away. We went over and
over. It was a struggle to design. She even took a nap when we
were drawing. We started over, until we found the direction she
Kim Kardashian has slowly but surely been putting her bodacious body back on display in the months after the birth of daughter North West.
But is she gearing up to return to the most storied display case of them all?!
“@KimKardashian is looking to make it back onto the cover of Playboy, very exciting,” Hugh Hefner tweeted-then-deleted, but not before the retweeters got a hold of the sentiment.
While there’s no official word yet of talks between the two, Playboy’s December 2007 cover girl was just heard saying on Sunday’s episode Keeping Up With the Kardashians that she was ready to put those who over-scrutinized her pregnancy weight gain in their place.
“I just wanna come out to the world, like, naked and be, like,” the new mom told sisters Khloé and Kourtney , raising both middle fingers for effect, “‘I look so hot. I’m back. You all called me a whale, Shamu, a cow…
“When I came back from the hospital,” Kim added, “the first thing I did was go look at my vag in the mirror. It looks better-looking than before.”
Kardashian sister talk in full effect.
Kim, who perhaps has reconsidered since telling Harper’s Bazaar in 2010 that she was “uncomfortable” posing for Playboy, also said on camera in an episode taped while she was still pregnant: “As soon as I pop this thing out, I want to do Playboy or some nude shoot.”
Well, Hef is apparently all for it. And we doubt that Playboy readers would argue much, either.
The 34-year-old singer yet again used Twitter to lash out against her critics – this time creating somewhat of an open forum for those who have problems with her parenting skills.
Over the weekend, Pink’s retired motocross, motorcycle racer husband, Carey Hart , took the couple’s 2-year-old daughter Willow out for a motorcycle ride, subsequently sharing images on Instagram . “Been waiting for this day for a very long time. Willz went for her 1st ride on my motorcycle around the pits today,” he wrote.
“She was pumped the whole time. When we stopped, she gave me a big hug and said it was fun, thank you Papa.
That’s my girl,” the excited father captioned on the split-screen shot –one of his daughter seated in front of him, the other with her arms wrapped around his neck. What was meant to be a sweet moment unleashed the disapproval of fans concerned for the safety of the toddler.
“If any of u have more experience on a bike than my husband, then I will listen to your opinions on how he should take my daughter for a ride,” the Grammy-winning singer expressed to her 20 million plus followers. “I can’t promise I will care, but I will listen none the less.” The conversation simply turned into a blunt exchange of Pink defending her actions and sarcastically entertaining comments from fans.
PHOTOS: Hollywood’s hottest couples – will they last? “Wait until she’s 16 and let her decide for herself. Bikes are no joke!” wrote one follower, which was accompanied by the response, “Yeah ok. I’ve never met you but that’s great.” Another fan expressed, “Honestly.. I wouldn’t like the idea of a child so young being on a bike.” Pink (actual name Alecia Beth Moore) shot back, “Then I don’t recommend it for your child.”
Between re-tweets, the sassy singer commented, “This is fun.” The Missundaztood artist’s final comment of the night was a rather large slap in the face to her critics:
“M’kay I’m gonna go now. Gotta figure out what wills is wearing tomorrow for her MANIACAL MOTO MANIA!!!!!! Gotta pack veggies too! Organic!”
The protective parent and wife told Ellen Degeneres in a Sept. 19 interview, “I watched [Carey] just fall in love the day we brought [Willow] home. It’s like watching the person you love fall in love for the first time.”
Beyonce made one fan’s selfie extra special.
A 15-year-old concertgoer in Melbourne, Australia named Valentina was snapping a pic at the singer’s show when Beyonce stuck her head into the frame, leading to a perfect photo bomb (see right).
“I dont even know it was such a blur i just remember her bending down to me and my friend and i just turned for the photo and wowoowow it was the best moment ever like she posed its crazy i wasnt even expecting her to look at my phone or notice me in the crowd,” wrote the girl on Tumblr after she shared the picture.
Amazingly, there’s also a GIF of the moment from another angle (see below).
Miley Cyrus and Lindsay Lohan are party pals.
The two stars were spotted chatting at 1OAK in New York over the weekend, arriving at the club separately but enjoying each other’s company after Lohan approached Cyrus’ table.
Cyrus was at the hotspot with friends including EJ Johnson and Andrew Warren ( see photo below).
Despite false speculation that Lohan recently began drinking again, sources say she was not touching alcohol at the club.
On Sunday, after their club meet-up, Cyrus tweeted, “#Drinkinouttavasesamirightttt # celebrate # Bangerztour2014 ” — to which Lohan replied, “I mean…” Perhaps this is the start of a beautiful friendship.
“The Osbournes” is not being revived, despite sensational reports spreading online this week.
The confusion seems to stem from Jack Osbourne ’s recent appearance on “Access Hollywood,” where the “Dancing with the Stars” contestant was asked whether his famous family would ever consider returning to reality TV.
Jack never definitively said “The Osbournes” was returning, but little things like accuracy didn’t stop outlets like The Sun from running with it — and upping the ante by adding false info such as supposed storylines and even a premiere date.
Sharon Osbourne, however, set the record straight on “The Talk” on Tuesday.
“It is absolutely not true,” said the family matriarch.
Nicole Kidman opens up in the December issue of Vanity Fair about her marriage to Tom Cruise , likening the pair’s much-publicized relationship to that of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie .
The actress tells the mag, “There is something about that sort of existence that, if you really focus on each other and you’re in that bubble, it’s very intoxicating, because it’s just the two of you. And there is only one other person that’s going through it.”
Kidman shares, “So it brings you very close, and it’s deeply romantic. I’m sure Brad and Angelina have that — because there’s nobody else that understands it except that person who’s sleeping right next to you.”
The star goes on to say that when she wed Cruise at age 23, “I was so young,” adding, “And you know, with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now.”
Kidman calls her marriage to Keith Urban “very, very peaceful,” and tells the magazine she much prefers living in Nashville to Los Angeles.
She says that in L.A., “There’s an enormous amount you have to give up if you want to have a family. You can have a certain career, but you can’t be living in Hollywood, [where] absolutely everything, everything revolves around it.”
The issue hits newsstands next month.
Chris Brown says he did NOT use a gay slur during the physical altercation in Washington, D.C. over the weekend that led to his arrest and a misdemeanor assault charge.
The performer, who is still on probation after assaulting Rihanna in 2009, allegedly got into a violent incident outside the W Hotel on Sunday.
There are conflicting reports about what exactly transpired, and some accounts of the event claim that Brown used a gay slur.
Similar accusations have been made about the star in the past .
But a source close to Brown tells me the singer insists he did not make a homophobic remark — or say anything — to the man involved in the dispute.
We’re told Brown is “upset” about the homophobic quote being attributed to him, and adamant that it never happened.
I will have updates as the situation develops.
Kelly Osbourne is apologizing to Lady Gaga for telling the singer to “eat my sh*t” after Gaga sent her a birthday cake in London in an effort to put their feud to rest.
Osbourne tweeted at the pop star on Monday night, “@ladygaga I acted like a child last night. Just not into publicity stunts call me & we will end this like adults I dont want 2 fight anymore.”
On Sunday, Osbourne blasted Gaga for giving her mom Sharon a “Happy Birthday Kelly” cake in an attempt to end her feud with the
“Fashion Police” co-host. Osbourne said, “Not to be ungrateful but why would you send me a birthday cake via my MOTHER in a country half the would away? #JustSendItToME #LoveNotWar.” “#EatMySh*t #Hypocrisy,” wrote Osbourne, along with a picture of the cake, adding, “#StefaniStopIt!” Hopefully, the stars will be able to hash things out soon.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom reunited at Kanye West ’s concert in Los Angeles on Monday night, but a source close to the pair tells me this does not mean they’ve worked out their issues.
Our insider says Odom went to the show, but he and Kardashian “didn’t go together.”
The whole reality TV clan was there to watch West perform, and we’re told the NBA free agent did hang with the family for a bit — but that’s the extent of him and Kardashian’s reunion.
Odom has reportedly been sober for several weeks.
