Rihanna channels her inner Marilyn Monroe for the cover of Vogue U.K’s October 2011 edition.
In the issue, Rih Rih reveals that the wigs, the hair color changes, the wild antics in videos [like her topless romp during her “We Found Love” video shoot that it angered an Irish farmer] is just all an act she puts on for her fans.
“That’s not me. That’s a part I play. You know, like it’s a piece of art, with all these toys and textures to play with,” she tells the magazine.
“See, people … they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead. The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me, and [being a role model] became more of my job than I wanted it to be. But no, I just want to make music. That’s it.”

Aubrey “Drake” Graham hit up his blog recently to reveal the artwork for his upcoming album “Take Care”.
Take special note of the intricate artwork and gold table embellishments… there’s a lil touch of Kanye in almost every detail. Oh… and the gold owl signifies OVO (October’s Very Own) ~ all of Drake’s homies born in the month of October.
Oh you fancy huh… Drake?
Drizzy also takes a moment to send his fans a very heartwarming message about the anticipated release date of the album:
Feels like it’s been so long. Is life moving so fast in this generation that when we desire something it begins to move in slow motion? Are we just used to getting what we want right away? Or do we require one another to feel right about all that is going on around us?
Maybe our anticipation is justified by the fact that we genuinely cannot wait to share a moment again? Either way, your life and mine are scheduled to meet on October 24…I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
See you soon.
That dayum Drake is just so sensitive…. *swoon*

Remember when Ciara and Bow Wow were our picture perfect Jay-Z and Beyonce? No? Well let me refresh your memory.
Way before Bow Wow was a baby daddy (and several years before Ciara perfected her matrix move), they were once one of the hottest hip-hop couples around.
The cute couple made music together, did shows together, and appeared on several magazine covers. They even made Ebony magazine’s “10 Hottest couples” list in 20006…
My how time flies! How does a love so right go so wrong? *sigh*
Hold up… wait! Are any of those couples on Ebony’s 2006 list still together?? Jermaine & Janet? Kirk & Tammy Franklin? LisaRaye & Micheal Misik? [Dang! that’s a whole ‘nother post!]
Join me for a walk down puppy love memory lane in viewing CiCi & BowWow’s boo’d up photo collection below: Continue Reading…
Royce Reed has been called many things… i.e NBA baller Dwight Howard’s baby mama, skanky poolside dancer, online troublemaker, made for TV basketball “wife”… but never… EVER have we heard the word model mentioned in association with her name.
Well… times they are a changin’! Royce recently revealed a few photoshopped snapshots and proclaimed via her facebook page, that she’s now a calendar model…
In all the shots, Reed shows off her boyish figure in a teeny-weeny bikini.

The Diva better known as Janet Jackson has pretty much given PETA the middle finger in a new ad campaign.
For the 2nd year in a row, Janet (Miss Jackson if you’re nasty), is being marketed as the face of BlackGlama, a luxury mink fur company, and she unabashedly appears in several ad spots for the company along with the caption “What Becomes a Legend Most”…
“It became clear in our discussions of who the ‘Legend’ should be this year, that continuing the momentum with Janet made complete sense,” says Joe Morelli, CEO of Blackglama.
“She embodies glamour, luxury and sophistication, everything that Blackglama stands for.”
Apparently FUR becomes a legend, just ask my boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton! But I digress…
