Rihanna performed at the Y100 Jingle Ball in Florida, and sister-friend brought her A-game with her. I love her edgy style, and although her look is definitely different, she’s always on point.

Love her!

Rihanna and Chris Brown have reportedly decided to take the next step in their relationship. No, they’re not getting married. No, she isn’t pregnant. They’re going to move in together, and are currently on the market for a condo in the LA area. According to a source:

They play their music loud though, so they want a condo that’s soundproof.”

Riiiight. Who the hell do they think they’re kidding? Please, this ain’t my first time around the hotrain. I know why they want a soundproof space, and it has nothing to do with music.

Is Rihanna Broke?

According to Rihanna’s ex business manager, Patricia Williams, the Umbrella singer is broke as an effin’ joke. Williams was fired recently, and accused of stealing from Rihanna. Now, she’s speaking out and it ain’t pretty. Williams said:

“It’s not my fault that she only has $20,000 to her name. I showed her all the paperwork and tried to explain to her the circumstances but she wouldn’t listen. She called me all sorts of horrible names and stormed off. I now feel compelled to share with the world the background story as I will not allow my name to be slandered.

Williams went on to say that Def Jam “doesn’t fund Rihanna properly,” so all of the money that she makes goes to fund things like music videos and album production. She claims that the singer only made around $1 million last year. Click here to read up on all of Williams’ allegations. Plan on carving out a good chunk of your day to read everything, because there’s a ton of text to read.

How is it possible that she only made $1 million last year? If I had to give her a dime every time that Umbrella, ella, ella song got stuck in my head, I’d owe her at least twice that much.

Rihanna Has A New Tattoo

Rihanna performed on the Today show yesterday, where she showed off her new tattoo and questionable taste in hats. I’m beginning to think her stylist hates her or something.

Anyway, the tattoo is on her shoulder, and it looks like it’s Roman numerals or something (Jay-Z has a thing for Roman numerals. Look it up, it’s true).

And, like clockwork, I have that Umbrella song stuck in my head. I can’t talk about Rihanna without it happening. Ella, ella, ella

Rihanna spent the day yesterday shopping and getting a new tattoo! The Good Girl Gone Bad shopped at two clothing boutiques, Diavolina and Opening Ceremony, before heading off to the Body Electric tattoo shop on Melrose Avenue in LA. Although she covered up after her new ink, the sexy singer was spotted getting a tattoo on the back of her neck.
