Rihanna Isn’t Very Sneaky

Rihanna went out to dinner at Katsuya in LA last night, and even though she left through the side door (Duh! Everyone knows that you’re supposed to go out the back!), a bunch of photographers caught up with her.

Still, she was uber nice and smiled for everyone. As an added bonus, she looked super cute.

Love her!

MavrixOnline Exclusive: Chris Brown and Rihanna

Chris Brown was all smiles and enjoying himself on a jetski after being reunited with girlfriend Rihanna at P. Diddy’s $20 million dollar Star Island mansion the previous night. The reconciliation comes just two weeks after the alleged domestic violence incident between Rihanna and Chris that left Rihanna with cuts and bruises to her face and body.

The tattooed singer spent the day partying at P. Diddy’s pad with an entourage of girls and guys including one of Rihanna and Jay Z’s bodyguards. Brown enjoyed himself on a jetski with a friend followed closely by security in a boat in the bay of Miami before taking the party back inside where they lounged by the pool. Brown looked like he didn’t have a care in the world.

You know, if you’ve recently been all over the news for smacking up your girlfriend, maybe you shouldn’t let yourself be photographed looking all mean. I’m just sayin’, these kinds of pictures probably aren’t going to get his Got Milk? ad campaign back.

This is all way depressing…I just keep telling myself that there’s a special place for guys to go that beat up women.

Is Rihanna A Battered Woman?

gt_mx002082009_1.jpg Please link to www.mavrixonline.com

I’m not one for speculation, so here are the facts of an event that took place last night, as described in an LAPD Police report:

“Los Angeles: Around 12:30 a.m. on February 8, 2009, an alleged domestic violence felony battery involving R & B singer Chris Brown and a woman occurred. Brown and the woman were in a vehicle on North June street in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles when, according to the victim, they became involved in an argument.  After stopping his car, Brown and the woman got out and the argument escalated.  The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker. The Los Angeles Police Department received a 911 call reporting the disturbance.  When officers arrived they found the victim, but Brown had already left the scene.  The LAPD is conducting an investigation into the incident.”

TMZ reported last night that a warrant was out for Chris’ arrest, and he turned himself into police shortly thereafter. Both Brown and Rihanna were supposed to perform at the Grammy’s last night, but canceled at the last minute. Although Rihanna was never personally named in the report, it is suspected that she’s the woman in question.

If Chris did slap her around, he deserves to go to jail. Beating women is never acceptable, ever.

Snaps from the Pepsi Smash

Last night was the Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Bash presented by VH1 and the NFL. The event hosted by Jerry O’Connell helped to kick off Super Bowl weekend, which I’m totally looking forward to. The last time the Steelers won the Super Bowl was a few years ago, and I ended up rioting in the streets with a bunch of drunk townies. Good times.

Anyway, I actually managed to catch some of the Pepsi Smash last night, while I was flipping between that Gordon Ramsay show and a Grey’s Anatomy rerun. Rihanna was amazing! I couldn’t tell if she was lip synching or not, but it didn’t really matter. She’s obviously uber talented.

Well Helloooo, Rihanna!

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 Move In

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

Shopping and ice cream are good for the soul!
