Nicole Richie took on an astonishing image transformation last night in time for the ‘Met Gala 2013.’ The extravagant event was held at the ‘Metropolitan Museum of Art‘ (MoMA) on Monday, and Nicole caught the eye of many a fashion reporter during her walk.
The socialite-turned-mother vamped the high-society event up in a gothic design created by the mastermind behind ‘Topshop‘. She posed with Sir Philip Green and others on the red carpet, and her deep red lips and multiple earrings got more than a few flashbulbs glowing. Her new image is courtesy of Luke Chamberlain, who backcombed and sprayed her hair especially for the event. Her ‘Topshop‘ dress will be available to purchase to us mere civilians later this year.
Fellow celebrity Rihanna sent a half bitchy, half complimentary tweet earlier today about Nicole‘s fashion choices: “This bitch makes me throw up!!
#bestdressed #2013metgala @nicolerichie.” A seemingly flattered Nicole replied: “Currently shining bright like a diamond, a ruby, & 2 emeralds. @rihanna.”
Despite their very obvious and public displays of affection over the last few months, Rihanna‘s only just announced (in an interview with ‘Rolling Stone‘ magazine that she and Chris Brown have reconciled.
The Bajan singer, who seems to have a case of amnesia, having forgotten exactly what he put her through, confessed to the music publication: “When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world. You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about shit. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”
“He doesn’t have the luxury of fucking up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility. I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.” Oh no Ri, you silly girl…
Jessie J sent the most indirect tweet ever the other day when she criticised Rihanna over her well-publicized weed habit. Rihanna, who is also a regular ‘Instagram‘ uploader, came under fire after Jessie decided that enough was enough, and that she had to comment on the drug user’s vanity:
“I’m bored… Maybe I should get naked and smoke and take pictures of myself and post them on ‘Instagram‘? Or NOT… *rolls eyes* Hahaha my TL is hilarious. My last tweet about instagram sadly wasn’t an indirect at anyone in particular. There is definitely more than 1 person posting those kind of pictures. Hence my tweet. I’m going to be honest. My tweet about ‘Instagram‘ was NOT aimed at anyone inparticular. But I will openly say the amount of pictures including men and woman nude and girls and guys promoting smoking drugs on the internet these days is a lot. Feels like the boundries are disappearing. Its become fashionable and in my opinion its too much. Call me what you want but that’s MY opinion and I’m intitled to one.”
Family-loving singer Rihanna has paid tribute to her late grandmother Dolly by donating to the hospital that treated her cancer. Her relative died in June, and she was devastated by the loss. Her contribution of £1.75m to the ‘Queen Elizabeth Hospital‘ on her home island of Barbados will see the re-opening of the hospital’s radiotherapy unit as the ‘Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine‘.
In a short statement to ‘E! News‘ explaining her action, Ri reasoned: “This was my way of giving back to Barbados, in a form of philanthropy, by assisting the ‘QEH‘ in its continued modernization program….I believe that this will have a huge impact on the people of Barbados. This was all done to save lives or at least extend them.” When she announced her intentions over the weekend, she confirmed plans to pay for 3 pieces of modern equipment: “I believe that this will have a huge impact on the people of Barbados. This was all done in effort to save lives or at least extend it and I thank all of you for being a part of it.” She also posted a picture of her and her grandfather on her ‘Instagram‘ with the caption: “Me and grand pops in Barbados at the unveiling ceremony in memory of #GranDolly at ‘QEH‘.”
Chris Brown angrily deleted his Twitter account last night following a huge bust up with a female comedian. The horrible singer (with a particularly colourful and violent past) launched an unprovoked attack on Jenny Johnson.
Just a few of the friendly exchanges between the pair were: Chris: “Hi Mom says hello… She told me not to shart in your mouth, wanted me to shit right on the retina.” Jenny replied straight away: “YOU FLIRT!” Chris: “See… I don’t even have to tell you what you already know. Thanks HO! #Bushpig. I should fart while your giving me top.” Jenny: “Your Mom must be so proud of you.” Chris: “Take them teeth out when you sucking my dick HOE. I know! Jenny: “It’s “HO” not “HOE” you ignorant fuck. I look old as fuck! I’m only 23.” Jenny: “Being a worthless piece of shit can really age a person.” Chris: “Just ask Rihanna if she mad?” Adios, twatface…hopefully he’s gone for good!
Back in the day they were once tighter than a latex dress, but now it seems that Katy Perry and former BFF Rihanna (‘Katanna‘), have drifted apart. Katy won’t disclose what exactly has provoked their distance, but it’s believed to have been triggered by RiRi‘s recent appearances with abusive ex Chris Brown.
She told ‘MTV News‘: “We’ve had dinner, and that’s about it, I didn’t reach out to her after the incident. I think she is doing fine. I don’t know. Her personal life has probably already been blown out of proportion. I don’t really have to go into that. I’m sure she probably want’s a break.”
Rihanna‘s told ‘Vogue‘ magazine’s November issue that she is rarely approached by men for dates, and she has a funny reason as to why this is:
“I would love to go on a date. You don’t think that? I’m a woman. A young woman, vibrant, and I love to have fun. No one asks. Trust me on that. I’m waiting for the man who’s ballsy enough to deal with me. And I have too many vaginas around me at this point! Seriously, all I want is a guy to take me out and make me laugh for a good hour and take my ass back home. He doesn’t even have to come up. All I want is a conversation for an hour. I’m going to wait, though. You always find the wrong shit when you go looking.”
