Drake And Rihanna Drake And Rihanna

When it comes to the relationship between Drake and Rihanna, you can get some clues from Drake’s new song entitled ‘Days In The East.’  After releasing “Draft Day” which contains some lines intended for Jay Z, Drake is now doing a slow jam music which is inspired by Rihanna.  In the song, “Days In The East,” Drake talks about his life and additionally his pursuit of a certain girl.  In the song, he also describes his current relationship with Rihanna. Drake sings:

“Told you about giving him chances on chances on chances

He’s not holding you down, he’s holding you back right now”

He also added:

“Take a flight here, pop a Xan [Xanax] for the boy

Waking up in Amsterdam with the boy

Long flight home, another Xan [Xanax] for your boy

You would probably fly out to Japan for the boy

You would probably kill another man for the boy”

He also sings:

“Before you said you’re mine, I was yours already

22, had the Bentley 4-door already

Even as a boy I was the boy already

So you know that mean the p-ssy galore already

Mention other girls, you get insecure already

That was in the past, I’ve matured already

F-ck them hoes, you got the award already

You go to Chanel and get rewards already”

Even if Rihanna is interested in pursuing waves in Hollywood but she is not willing to make any films with one particular director, Tyler Perry.  According to sources, Tyler Perry has been asking RiRi to do a romantic comedy y movie but it seems that the singer is not responding.  This is because Rihanna has been warned by Whitney Houston.  The source said:

“Although Tyler has been courting Rihanna for a year and a half, hoping to build a movie around her, she has rejected the idea. Rihanna has pointedly avoided meeting with him!”

The source further added:

“Whitney put her off Tyler by warning her bluntly that ‘Tyler’s films are for fading black stars, not rising ones. Rihanna so respected Whitney because in addition to being one of the biggest pop stars ever, she starred in hit movies such as The Bodyguard. She’s ruling out doing a Tyler Perry-style romantic comedy because she thinks she works better in action roles, playing the tough girl.”

Way back in November 2013, Rihanna and Drake were spotted together at a Houston strip club.  Since then, the fans have been hoping that they could be together again.  After that, the two were spotted again last month on Drake’s shows.  Recently, they traveled together to Amsterdam as well as Germany for Drake’s “Would You Like A Tour?” tour.

Now, it seems that the two are not only friends but they have turned into a couple again.  In fact, they were showing some PDA at the club and when they left they were even holding hands.

WENN revealed that:

“Now it appears the two stars have confirmed they are a couple by locking lips for a steamy smooch during a trip to Cirque Le Soir in the U.K. capital on Monday night. An onlooker tells WENN, “There’s definitely no question about their romance any more. Rihanna and Drake spent the whole night with their tongues down each other’s throats and didn’t seem to care about everybody seeing.””

With regards to relationships, Drake does not do do-overs.  Will Rihanna be an exception?

Last week, Rihanna took a trip to France so that he can be with Drake on stage in Paris.  They were spotted together in a number of occasions too.  On Wednesday, after Rihanna was done with her Paris Fashion Week celebrations, she flew to Amsterdam so that she can attend Drake’s concert.  Yesterday, Ri and Drake were spotted dining together at Izakaya Sushi Restaurant then later on they flew to Germany.

Way back in 2010, when Drake was interviewed by Rickey Smiley with regards to his past relationship with Rihanna, he explained:

Rihanna and Drake Rihanna and Drake

“It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve experienced in a long time. It’s so rare that I feel nervous and small due to a woman’s presence. And I will tell you that, Rihanna had me so overwhelmed at the time that we met and throughout the duration of our friendship (or whatever it was that we had) that she gave me an emotion I truly miss in my life. On the album I wanted to pay homage to her for giving me that emotion. I don’t know when the next time I will feel that. I would say that I was very into that situation but I wouldn’t say I loved her. I didn’t get to know her well enough to say that I love her.”

Are they just friends or what?

Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown

It seems that the rumor that Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown have split is true.  Allegedly the reason behind this is Chris is still having some unresolved issues with her ex-girlfriend Rihanna.  According to reports, Rihanna and Chris have reconciled which is quite strange since Rihanna was spotted with Drake in several occasions.

However, there is no confirmation to this rumor yet.  Meanwhile, Chris has devoted his time in finishing his rehab stint. Last week, the singer was ordered by the judge to go back to the rehab, after staying for 95 days in the facility.

According to rumors, Karrueche is now dating NBA baller, Brandon Jennings.  Jennings apparently posted a photo of Karrueche with the message suggesting that she is the kind of girl that a man should marry.  Isn’t it quite flattering?  Karrueche is the type of person who typically pays no attention to rumors.  However, in order to stop this completely. She tweeted:

“Not dating anyone stop with the bs.”

So, this means that she is single, do you agree?

Drake talks about his platonic friendship with Rihanna and the reason why he did not attend this year’s Grammys.  Inside the magazine, he also discussed his thoughts when it comes to Beyoncé’s new album, the text message of Macklemore to Kendrick Lamar as well as his comments to the Yeezus album of Kanye.

What he can say about Macklemore text towards Kendrick Lamar which he posted online, he said:

“That sh-t was wack as f–k. I was like, ‘You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn’t deserve it, go get better — make better music. It felt cheap. It didn’t feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?”

“This is how the world works: He made a brand of music that appealed to more people than me, Hov, Kanye and Kendrick. Whether people wanna say it’s racial, or whether it’s just the fact that he tapped into something we can’t tap into. That’s just how the cards fall. Own your s—t.[...]To name just Kendrick? That sh-t made me feel funny. No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!”

What are his thoughts on the Grammys, Drake responded:

“It becomes more apparent how irrelevant our genre is to them. They were trying to utilize me to sell the show, requesting me to come and perform ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home –but they didn’t nominate me for anything. They’re calling me, emailing me every day to do some elaborate performance and bring them viewers but I didn’t get a nomination for Album Of The Year. I didn’t get a nomination for Song Of The Year.”

What does he think about Beyoncé’s new album?  Drake said:

“[A member of Beyonce's team flew to Chicago where he was performing to play him the 'Mine' video for his approval.] I said, ‘That’s cool’. [She closed her laptop real fast, walked off and got on the phone.] ‘By the time I came off stage, the album was out! Beyonce was like, ‘I’m so sorry I couldn’t tell you!’ [The article states that Drake admired Beyoncé for the way she released her album.]”

What is his relationship with Rihanna?  Drake revealed:

“She’s the ultimate fantasy. I mean, I think about it. Like ‘Man, that would be good’. We have fun together, she’s cool and s–t. But we’re just friends, she’s my dog for life.”

More people are now becoming more interested on the relationship of Drake and Rihanna.  It all started when these two stars did not appear on the Grammys but were seen together during that night at the after-party which was held at Greystone Manor.  This time around, RiRi and Drake were spotted again together in a club.  Both of them were seen leaving at Hooray Henry’s nightclub located in West Hollywood, California.

It seems that the two are turning up together again.  However, before we start thinking about anything, we should recall what Drake said when she was being interviewed by Ellen.  According to Drake:

Drake and Rihanna Drake and Rihanna

“Yeah, [she's a] great girl, we had our moment and I always support and have love for her. I know I’m gonna watch this back and say ‘That’s not what I thought I said.’ [Ellen: You wanna go back and do that one over?] No, I’m not into do-overs in any regard, which is an ironic thing to say.”

Were they just enjoying each other’s company?

In the latest issue of V Magazine, Erykah Badu and Riccado Tisco chatted about fashion and music.  Riccardo Tisci of GIVENCHY was the one who chose Erykah Badu to represent their “Spring collection.”  Inside the magazine Badu and Tisci discussed about their collaboration and explained how music and fashion are associated.

Did both of them know each other before they started their collaboration?

Erykah said, “I just got a call from him. There’s not a big backstory to it. Unless you want to include that I’m a big fan of his work.”

Riccardo said, “I knew her as a musician and an artist. And she is a real artist. We had crossed paths before once in New York but never really knew each other. I asked her and she said yes. I was very, very happy. I wanted to represent the collection with style and elegance and I think she is perfect for that.”

What can she say about other musicians such as Rihanna, Miley and Gaga who are featured in various fashion magazines?

Erykah said:

“I think that we keep each other moving creatively, especially those that have been in this game awhile. To see our fellow artists like Riccardo and Donatella choose musicians only shows that we are all connected. My creative song is married to Riccardo’s creative eye, perhaps because I can sing a lot of songs about these designs and ideas that he has. I think it’s just the spirit of where we are as a whole tribe of humans. Visual expresses music expresses theme expresses theory. Everything goes together to more broadly express what the artist is trying to say. There’s no way I can express what I’m trying to say without the help of some visual artist completing my sentences. I think right now we’re completing each other’s sentences, artistically.”

One of Rihanna’s Navy died is a tragic death.  The 14-year-old Thiago Sobral Valencia, one of Rihanna’s biggest fans in Brazil, was brutally murdered by his stepfather.  According to sources, Thiago together with his 9-year-old brother Santos Junior Osvaldo and mother Vanessa Almeida Sobral was stabbed by his drunken stepfather.  The neighbors of the family were completely shocked by the incident.

By the time that Rihanna learned about the news, she immediately reached out to the family and offer to pay for Thiago’s funeral expenses.  The singer also offered her condolences and tweeted:

“R.I.P. To one of our fallen soldiers, brutally murdered yesterday in Brazil! 14 year old Thiago, will forever be in our hearts! #Navy”

“Just learned that Thiago’s mother and sibling were also murder victims in the horrible and tragic turn of events! Dear God! #Navy#RIPThiago”

“Let’s send our support to his family and friends during this difficult time guys! #RIPThiago”

RiRi was trying to get in touch with Thiago’s biological father so that she can offer her condolences. Eronilton Santos was surprised to hear from Rihanna however he denied the singer’s funeral offer.  Instead, he wants her to pay tribute to his son so that he would be able to watch from heaven.  Santos said:

“I was surprised that they’re concerned about it. The representative said that it was a request from Rihanna herself, who wanted to offer all kinds of help. They wanted to pay for the funeral, but I only asked if she would provide a tribute to him. The only thing I thought is that from heaven, where he is, he’s going to see this gesture. The impact of the message she posted about it on Twitter was huge.”

“He never went [to Rihanna's concert] because of the lack of money. Since last year, when he knew she would come to Brazil, he began to save money in a safe to be able to see her.”

Condolence to the family of Thiago!

Despite the fact that it’s snowing in NYC but that didn’t stop Rihanna from appearing on Good Morning America.  RiRi wore a nice business outfit as she chatted about winning the Best Urban Contemporary Album for the album “Unapologetic.”  She also has a new title which is the Philanthropic Partner of MAC Cosmetics.

What is her reaction to the Grammy award that she won this year for the album “Unapologetic”?  Rihanna said:

“I was so shocked. Really I was at home and one of my friends hit me and said, ‘You just won a Grammy,’ and I was like, ‘What?’ I went onto the Internet and I just saw [the word] Unapologetic. It was quite an emotional moment, surprisingly, but I was in shock. I was excited. It’s a good feeling to still be that excited at this point in my career.”

What made her decide to be the new face of MAC?  She revealed:

“The thing about MAC as a brand that I really love and embrace [is] they don’t judge. They’re not here to say, ‘Be perfect.’ They want you to have fun as well as myself. I want you to have fun. I love having fun, but you have to be responsible. You have to be safe. Protect yourself. You have to look out for yourself because nobody else can do that for you. It’s real. It’s a real disease. If we can just protect ourselves and be more responsible about it, I think that’s important for young people.”

How did she feel after winning the first ever AMA’s Icon Award?  RiRi said:

“It is a very surreal feeling. It’s almost like I can’t touch it.  My mom, she’s so cute. It was one of those moments where I felt like I was dreaming. It didn’t feel real. It still doesn’t feel real because I feel like I  have so much more to do. I feel like ‘icon’…that’s such a  big title. It’s such a big thing to say or to even be said about myself. Now the pressure’s on. I have to live up to that and I have to keep making my fans proud.[...]Music is what I love to do so you never have to worry about me not doing that. I love making it.”
