Who doesn’t love this beautiful image of the Knowles and their extended family and friends? The only thing better would be an hour-long reality show that followed Queen Bey, her sis, and her fabulous family as they possibly argued over photos, wedding food, and nearly missed a meltdown when Solange’s “Just Married” bicycle caught a flat on the way to the reception.
While we may never get an uncensored look into the lives of some of our favorite celebs, it doesn’t mean we can’t do a fantasy draft of the top 15 celebs who we think need reality shows. Get on it, VH1!
Whoopi Goldberg, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus are among celebrity pot lovers and are very open about it. Nevertheless, there are many more celebrity women who have at least tried marijuana that some folks probably didn’t know about.
My husband is not one to watch reality TV. Wait, let me clarify. He is not one to watch MY reality TV shows – Love & Hip Hop, The Real Housewives of Atlanta and basically any reality show that features “ratchet broads fighting each other pulling weaves and throwing drinks.” His words, not mine…although he’s not too far off in his assessment. Though, they are my guilty pleasures, he rarely indulges with me…until one day he caught a glimpse of Hollywood Exes. Suddenly he was sitting down with me watching the show intently. I think I even caught him searching the DVR for an episode he missed.
While that show was watchable, it lacked the explosive antics that garner huge ratings other shows featuring mostly women have commanded. So why the interest in THIS particular reality show? Two words: Nicole Murphy. It suddenly hit me – my husband had a new crush.
I say new because he’s had several that I’ve known of over the course of our relationship. Jill Scott, Nia Long, Beyoncé, Rihanna…the list goes on. I actually think it’s cute how he tries to downplay his crushes to me, or say things like, “(insert celebrity here) is hot like you are” or something along those lines. While I appreciate the compliment and know that he thinks I’m beautiful, I know what he’s really trying to do is reveal his celebrity crush to me in a way that is non-threatening and respectful. And I appreciate that.
However, let’s be real for a second. The chances of him actually meeting his celebrity crushes are slim. And the chances of them actually giving him the time of day if he DOES meet them is even slimmer. Don’t get me wrong, my husband is charismatic, charming and FINE! But his fantasies are less likely to become realities, so I simply smile when one of his crushes pops up on the big screen or one of their songs plays on the radio. It’s just not that deep to me.
But what if your man had a crush on a co-worker, or the woman who makes his latte at Starbucks every day? Would it still be a big deal? Would you want to know, and if so, would you consider it disrespectful to have a crush on someone he actually has a shot at?
Just because we’re married or in a committed relationship doesn’t mean we can’t notice and appreciate an attractive person who isn’t our mate. While I only have eyes for my husband, I’m not blind and can see that Idris Elba could certainly get it – if I wasn’t married of course. But that’s Idris Elba…not the FedEx guy who delivers packages in my neighborhood. If I told my husband I was crushing on Idris, he wouldn’t care. In fact, he’d probably think I liked Idris because they favor each other. Yes, he’s that vain.
But if I told him I had a crush on the UPS guy, he’d suddenly be paying attention to my online shopping habits and tracking how many packages I had delivered from the Gap. Now, my crush isn’t so silly anymore when it’s a guy he thinks I could snag in real life, not just a fantasy celebrity crush.
So where do we draw the line? I think it depends on the intensity of the crush and the state of your marriage. If your crush is someone you see on the subway or at the gym but you’re still madly in love with your husband or your partner, then the crush could be considered innocent. But if your crush is your coworker whom you spend 8 hours a day with and your marriage is on the rocks, then I’d say your crush could become your mistress or your side piece if you’re not too careful…assuming they reciprocate your affections.
For me, the ideal crush situation would be with someone you either have no chance with, ie: a celebrity, or someone you wouldn’t be afraid to tell your significant other about. It assumes that you realize that while he or she may be fun to look at and even flirt with, you know that the fantasy of him or her is way more appealing than the reality of them…and that the reality of your REAL life crush – your husband or your man – is all you really need. Sure, crushes are fun and can distract you from the mundane for a bit; but if you find that your crush is occupying your mind way more than your man is, something is wrong. No one should take the place of the one you’re in an actual relationship with. Your ultimate crush should the one you go to bed with and the one you wake up to…and who you watch Hollywood Exes with.
Chris and Rih Rih fans are in for a new treat.
The former couple known for making interesting duos are reportedly back at it again. Okay, it may not be on purpose on this time. However, the track, leaked by L.A Leakers, was originally recorded for Chris Brown’s “X” album. The song was eventually scrapped from the album and stayed under the radar until today.
In the single titled, “Put It Up” the duo sing a sultry love-making song. Some of the lyrics include, “I’m gonna explore all over your body.” I’ll be the first to say I like this song more than their previous songs “Cake” and “Nobody’s Business.” If it was released with the X album, I’m sure it would have been a hit.
Take a listen for yourself below.
Rihanna has decided to quench the thirst of Navy fans by releasing her latest video for the song “American Oxygen” to the masses.
Rihanna’s videos are always fresh to death. She takes big chances and is not afraid to twerk it out in a jean thong to get her point across: she’s the baddest gyal. Never forget it!
Let’s revisit 15 of Rihanna’s hottest music videos while we impatiently wait for the release of R8.
Yesterday, a suspicious looking video of Rihanna indulging in what many believed to be cocaine surfaced on the Internet. The video was captured during the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and quickly went viral.
Fans and trolls quickly began flooding the singer’s social media accounts with questions, concerns and nasty comments until she eventually broke her silence on the matter by sharing another clip from the day the first video was captured. In the clip, it’s obvious that she was not snorting cocaine, but instead, rolling a joint.
Of course, that wasn’t enough to stop the rumors and disrespectful comments.
“Rihanna snorting coke now smh #shedanextwhitney,” wrote one commenter.
Ri, not being one to back down, quickly clapped back.
“N-gga your lame a—got some f-cking nerve. Any fool could see that’s a joint that I’m basing with cigarette. Who tF snorts tobacco??!! FOH witcho ‘never been to a rodeo so someone squeezing their nose means they’re doing coke’ lookin a–!”
Well, we’re glad she cleared that up.
Generally, I’m not one to run with unfounded celebrity dating rumors, but reports about Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio being Hollywood’s new “it” couple had me somewhat convinced. I mean, the two have been spotted together on several occasions, but according to the singer, they’re not an item.
“It sounds to me like you should stay away from the blogs because they will screw you every time,” she told Hello! Daily News when asked about her relationship with the Wolf of Wall Street actor.
According to RiRi, she doesn’t have time for a relationship.
“I’m so busy right now that I just don’t have a lot of time to offer to a man so it wouldn’t even be fair to be thinking of pulling somebody else into this life,” she explained. “But if I did, he would have to be man enough to live with my schedule and not get scared.”
Earlier this month, an insider claiming to have knowledge of the actor’s personal affairs also denied RiCaprio rumors.
“Leo and Rihanna are just friends,” a source told Page Six. “Leo is and has been single for some time. He has been working on/shooting ‘The Revenant’ in Canada for months.”
Were you becoming comfortable with the idea of Rihanna and Leo being an item? Are you disappointed to know that there’s nothing going on between them?
Just in time for spring, Rihanna’s best friend Melissa Forde has launched her own bucket hat line with Wrkng Title, a hat line created by rapper Wale. The two collaborated on Forde’s line after having a conversation about bucket hats not being manufactured in the right fit, fabric or prints Forde desired. Thus, M$$xWT was conceived to make bucket hats a fashion statement rather than accessory.
Forde’s collection is comprised of three bucket hats: “Black Beauty,” “Rastaprint” and “Pink Pineapple.” The collection is available starting today in Opening Ceremony’s New York and Los Angeles locations. Opening Ceremony is a concept boutique that sells various clothing, jewelry and shoe lines. It can also be bought online via OpeningCeremony and WrkngTitle. Each hat is $55.
Forde’s summer collection will be available May 2015 and the styles sound delicious. Fans can expect a buttery perforated leather bucket in white, black and pastel lavender or mint. Also, oversized bucket hats in clown graphic buckets and the backpack to match. M$$xWT bucket hats will be sold exclusively through Opening Ceremony.
Known for her instinctive photography from various tours Rihanna has completed, Forde will also start a new journey through the role of Creative Director for Wrkng Title. Forde will help refine its Fall 2015 beanie line.
Rihanna and her best friend Melissa Forde are known as fashion icons of the millennial age. With their edgy style, many admire the BFF duos’ outfit.
Check out her and RiRi celebrating M$$xWT event line launch last night, below!
The new hit children’s film, Home, featuring Rihanna as the lead character Gratuity “Tip” Tucci raked in $54 million, reports The Hollywood Reporter, making it the number one movie of the weekend. Combined with the $48.2 million international sales, the film made $102.2 million worldwide.
Home was shown in 3,708 theaters and 64 film markets. And although this is Rihanna’s first animated film, her celebrity image helped the movie exceed the financial expectations from Fox and DreamWorks Animation Networks. The film revolves around a teenager, Tip, voiced by Rih Rih, who makes friends with a misfit alien named Oh as she tries to find her mother and save her race from being destroyed. Tip is also DreamWorks first lead character of color. Oh is voiced by Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons.
Home’s premiere weekend pushed Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell’s Get Hard movie into second place with it earning $34.6 million from 3,175 theaters.
Insurgent drops to third place with $22.1 million; Cinderella to fourth with $17.5 million; and It Follows, a horror film, came in fifth with $4 million.
After an introduction from Taraji P. Henson, who called her a “boss,” the 27-year-old singer took to the stage at the Shrine Auditorium Sunday night at the 2015 iHeart Radio Music Awards to perform her newest single “B***h Better Have My Money” for the first time live. “Let’s just say her performance was pretty priceless,” reported E! Online:
Arriving in a helicopter, the superstar stepped out wearing green boots, a matching fur coat and a very little black dress. She completed her look with emerald green shades that disappeared midway through the performance.
