”If They Don’t Like Each Other, That’s On Them”
Nicki Minaj fired back after a tweet from BET’s Twitter account implied that she “sneak-dissed” Rihanna on Ciara’s new single “I’m Out.” The Young Money rapstress quickly hopped on Twitter to set the record straight.
“Damn fam, I wld expect a black channel to actually understand rap bars. Song is a male bashing song. FOH,” she tweeted. “Dem chat too bl******t much. Close uno mout. Doh mek me dun uno p****hole.”
“I Rock w/both. If they don’t like each other, that’s on them. I’m just out here working. It wldnt have been a sneak diss either. #fearNoMan.”
Wale is bringing some major star power to his third album The Gifted. The Maybach Music rapper has called on superstars including Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa, and more.
During a private listening for journalists in New York last week, the D.C. native previewed some of the star-studded follow-up to 2011’s Ambition.
Rihanna guests on the remix to the first single “Bad.” “Bad girls always end up unapologetic,” raps Wale, while Rihanna replaces Tiara Thomas on the hook. “She injects this crazy/beautiful combination of sadness and sexiness that only Rih can do,” writes Rolling Stone.
Wale heads to the strip club on “Clappers” featuring Nicki Minaj and Juicy J. Young Money’s First Lady plays the role of a pimp on the bouncy banger, which samples E.U.’s “Da Butt.”
On “Rotation,” Wale boasts with his friends 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa. “Made millions with Shawn Corey,” raps the Roc Nation-managed MC in reference to Jay-Z. “I won’t be on til I see Sean Combs.”
Other collaborations include Meek Mill (“Heaven in the Afternoon”), YG and Dom Kennedy (“Hella”), and Rick Ross. The Gifted is due June 25.
Get ready for Ratchetville, USA, brought to you by Rihanna‘s "Pour It Up" video. The singer and her friends have been Instagram’ing flicks from the set before the video wrapped today. And a few hours ago, Rihanna’s last self-proclaimed ratchet-pic got yanked!
Check the pics inside, and the one that was removed (NSFW)…
We all know Rih Rih is a true bad gal at heart. And she has no problems with showing her ass, literally, to the world. So that’s exactly what she did a few hours ago with THIS pic:
We feel like we’ve seen worse on Instagram, but either Rihanna or the Instagram god themselves snatched this pic down after a couple hours and over 38,000 likes.
Rih also posted a pic of stripper shoes and money from the set…with her face on it of course. So obviously, we’re going with a stripper theme (in one way or another) for this video.
Her bestie Melissa was on the set scraping up the money in a pail:
And this pic was posted a few days ago of Rih Rih with Melissa asking ‘if this was ratchet enough’ for us.
This shall be interesting…

”Tell Her To Call Me”
Miley Cyrus wants to make out with Rihanna? Well–the feeling is definitely mutual.
At MAXIM’s Hot 100 party, Cyrus said that she didn’t think she deserved the No. 1 spot and revealed that she believed the sexy singer from Barbados is the hottest woman on the planet. “She’s, like, so hot,” Cyrus said.
She also later stated that she would make out with Rih-Rih. So of course, Rih-Rih was asked the same question by TMZ.
“Tell her to call me,” Rihanna said, exciting excitable fanboys everywhere.
”I’m Not Worried About Instagram…”
The New York Knicks are locked into a heated playoff battle against the Indiana Pacers, but guard J.R. Smith has been the subject of Web chatter due to his partying with Rihanna last week. After Smith’s play dropped off, some fans blamed Rih-Rih, who went off on an Instagram rant about Smith–calling him “desert thirsty” and dissing him and the Knicks.
Of course, Smith was asked about the Instagram post by an ESPN writer.
“I’m not worried about Instagram,” Smith told Ian Begley. “I’m worried about the playoffs!”
HUNG LOW: Rihanna NEARLY LOSES Her Pants, SUES Topshop For $5 Million For Selling Her Image + Nicki Minaj Names Cyndi Lauper As Her STYLE IDOL
As her team handles a million lawsuit against Topshop, Rihanna was seen struggling with her ultra-revealing pants during a peek-a-boo stroll through New York last night. Get the legal deets inside and watch footage from Nicki Minaj’s TEEN VOGUE spread….
Rihanna was seen heading back to her hotel room in NYC last night.
Wearing a tight pair of black leather trousers with a midriff baring top, Riri was forced to adjust and re-adjust her pants so photographers wouldn’t get a shot of her goodies.
But bare booty views aren’t the only struggles facing the pop starlet. As her "Styled To Rock" show comes over to the States, her legal team is embroiled in a nasty Million lawsuit with Topshop. It seems the company is making a ton of money selling t-shirts with her image on them…without her permission.
A source close to the situation says negotiations between the company and Rihanna started out friendly…but took a dive once they only offered her K. Insulting! Her camp turned down the offer and Topshop ignored the rejection and sold the t-shirts anyway! They essentially told her they would do whatever the hell the please. Now…Riri wants them to pay up. The source told Page Six,
“Rihanna’s management asked Topshop a number of times to stop selling her image and were told, ‘We do what we want.’ They buy the pictures from a photographer, but they do not pay the artist licensing fees. Unfortunately, UK law does not protect the artist. What is most offensive for Rihanna is that they basically told her, ‘Go to hell. We don’t care; we are going to continue selling you.’
But fans of Rihanna shouldn’t expect to get their hands on any of those shirts here in the States. The source added,
"Topshop is now in the United States. They set up in Manhattan and Nordstrom, but they know better than to do this in the US because they would get in trouble.”
For their part, Topshop isn’t admitting any wrongdoing. In fact….they seem to pass the buck off on the supplier (though they did CHOOSE to sell the shirts). A rep said,
“This issue is related to a T-shirt provided to Topshop by a third-party supplier. We are aware it is the subject of litigation. [There are] public documents."
We bet chick gets her money. We’ll let you know how that turns out….
And on magazine stands…..
You’ve already seen her Teen Vogue cover, now they’ve released backstage footage and interview clips from Nicki Minaj’s colorful June/July 2013 cover where she reveals the origins of her thick shell and touch girl attitude. In the clip above, she describes her style as "Euphoric, girly and powerful." Also, the rapstress talks about her "AI" experience, her most memorable audition and her fashion/music idol Cyndi Lauper.

Singer Spotted In Revealing Outfit
Rihanna got the paparazzi’s attention in New York City this week when she decided to step out of her hotel rocking some fairly-sheer clothing.
The singer has been stirring up all kinds of trouble in NYC, partying with Knick J.R. Smith while he’s in the middle of a playoff battle with the Indiana Pacers and then blasting him on Instagram for being “thirsty.”
But she’s obviously still feeling very carefree, as Rih-Rih decided to walk out of the Gansavoort Hotel with no bra while wearing a skirt with a long slit up the side that almost showed the world her goodies.
Guess she’s just enjoying the warm weather.
Rihanna Shoots BUDWEISER Commercial In NYC, Gets Provocative With Her “D.I.Y.” Tee, Readies New ROGUE By Rihanna Fragrance
Rihanna is still chillin’ in NYC. And she was spotted heading to the set of a Budweiser commercial yesterday in the City. Check out her sexiness on the set, plus the tee she rocked before she got there that had everyone doing a double take…
We’re sure this only took a few takes. Beer lover Rihanna will be starring in an upcoming Budweiser commercial. The Anheuser-Busch beer co. is also sponsoring Jay-Z’s Made In America festival, so they’re keeping it in the family.
No word yet on what the commercial is for exactly. But she will indeed be keeping it sexy as she’s back to her blonde wavy wiggery, a cropped sweater and a sexy skirt and Azzedine Alaïa suede heels as she was spotted leaving her trailer with a cup of Starbucks coffee:
Her girl Melissa was front and center with her camera. So we’re sure we’ll be getting some behind the scenes shots soon.
And in addition to a new gig with Budweiser the "Pour It Up" chick told her fans on Instagram that she’s readying her new fragrance called ROGUE by Rihanna. And this one will come in two installments–one for women and one for men. It’s a new bottle, new packaging and new scents. Smart.
And before she made her way to the set, Rih as spotted leaving the Gansevoort Hotel rocking THIS get-friendly-with-your-damn-self tee:
Ha! That damn Rihanna…
Rihanna knows how to work the sidewalk catwalk. This afternoon in NYC, the "Right Now" singer made her way to her awaiting SUV rocking a maxi dress with a sky high split, a bright scarf on her head, and some words for Knicks baller J.R. Smith…
When pics surfaced of Rihanna partying it up at Greenhouse over a week ago–with J.R. Smith lurking in her VIP section–rumors started swirling that the twosome were a new item…in one way or another.
But like most rumors, it didn’t hold much water as Rihanna was barely seen, if ever, even speaking to J.R. that night. And it appears she’s had enough of people accusing her of having a relationship with him. AND she’s done with people blaming her for his lackluster playoff capabilities.
So she replied to a Knicks fan who went at her about J.R. And if this doesn’t clear the air, we don’t know what does:
Not desert thirsty ni**a! Dayyuuuuum. Anywho, the Knicks are down 3-1 in this round of the playoffs and ish isn’t looking good. Check out more pics of Rih holding her own this afternoon:
1. That damn Chris Bosh. He may possibly be fined for this "ass-eating-like" move he pulled during Wednesday night’s game against the Bulls. He makes it SO easy. STORY
