This may be a little late, but we captured some pictures from different gigs in the past couple of weeks that we wanted to share. Enjoy!
Mam’ Sibongile Khumalo brought along with her a popping voice and new songs. She performed indoors, and unlike the dancing going on outside, where HHP and Lira (she sampled electronic sounds and even did a short cover of Rihanna’s We Found Love) performed, Khumalo had her crowd seated and in silence. That voice is still magic after all these years.
According to TMZ Nicki Minaj, whose real name is Onika Tanya Maraj, can be added on the list of females that have beaten by their boyfriends right below Rihanna and Kelly Khumalo.
The gossip site claims that female rapper Nicki Minaj was bashed in the face with a suitcase by her boyfriend Safaree Samuels, who also happens to be her assistant.
TMZ also uploaded a document which they claim to be the authentic police report which was filed. The police report says “[Nicki's] teeth struck the inside of her lower lip, causing the inside of the lower lip to cut and start to bleed”
Nicki Minaj denied the claims. She tweeted:
2010/2011 hasn’t been kind to Megan Fox. First she was replaced by Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley in the new Transformers movie and now Rihanna is taking her place as the new face (and body) of Armani’s autumn/winter underwear and jeans campaign.
Rihana got the rumour mills running before it was announced when she tweeted: “U would NEVER guess what I’m doing right now!!! Hint Hint #Armani”. But today it was made official. The curvaceous Barbadian beauty will star in the Armani campaigns this autumn.
Judging by her on stage antics, Riri will fill Megan’s pants with ease. In a recent Vogue cover spread Rhianna said ”I realized that I actually like my body, I just feel sexy. For the first time, I don’t want to get rid of the curves. My body is comfortable, and it’s not unhealthy, so I’m going to rock with it.”
It looks like the general public has finally forgiven Chris Brown for beating up his former girlfriend Rihanna. But a controversial mix-up that occurred when winners were announced in the viewer’s choice category at the BET Awards has fans confused about the two stars.
During the awards a fan was presenting the Coca-Cola Viewer’s Choice Award and called Chris Browns name out as the winner (they use computer tablets not envelopes) but then it quickly changed to Rihanna. While the confused audience was gasping, muttering and exchanging whispers; Canadian rapper Drake awkwardly appeared on stage and accepted the award on Rihanna’s behalf (she didn’t attend the awards, despite winning for female R&B artist).
“Well, this is awkward,” said Drake, as he accepted Rhianna’s award for their hit “What’s My Name”. But what really made the situation awkward was how the host Kevin Hart bought out Chris Brown to tell him that he was the rightful/ intended winner of the trophy even though Rihanna’s name was on the teleprompter.
But what made the situation more awkward was at the end of the ceremony
At the conclusion of the ceremony, host Kevin Hart bought out Chris Brown to tell him he was actually the intended winner of the trophy, along with the FANdemonium Award. Talk about awkward — especially as a chunk of the audience had already began filing out of the venue.
Rihanna portrays a rape victim in her latest video, ‘Man Down,’ who commits premeditated murder against her offender with the shot of a gun. The video has been deemed too violent by The Parents Television Council and they are trying to get BET and other channels to stop airing it.
The groups are also angry because Rihanna has promoted the video on her twitter account stating that the theme of the video was female empowerment.
Well here’s the video, what do you think?

Rihanna flaunts her softer side in her latest video for a track from the massively successful LP, Loud. The new pop ballad, “California King Bed,” follows the huge success of Loud singles “S&M” and “Only Girl (In the World)” and will hit international radio stations later this month. So far the video, posted on her YouTube Vevo channel, has had nearly 567,000 views.
“As the video opens, Rihanna and her hunky beau are feeling a painful distance, even as they snuggle up in their California king-sized bed,” describes Billboard. “Rihanna’s just rolled-out-bed look is completed by modest, cream-colored lingerie in the airy, light-filled video.”
Rihanna teased her nearly 5 million Twitter followers last week when she posted a photo from the video shoot. Since the clip released, her fans have been aflutter with reviews: “it’s been a while since I liked a Rihanna song, love California King bed, and the video is good too,” tweeted HillarySesi. “Just listend to California King Bed of @Rihanna, its not what I expect from her, but it’s a nice song #fact,” tweeted itsnwar.
Rihanna has sold more than 15 million albums and 45 million singles. Loud, which released last November, has peaked in the top ten in album charts in some 21 countries, including reaching number one in the UK and Canada.

By popular demand – a collaboration between two sexy stars, Rihanna and Britney Spears.
Earlier this week, Rihanna teased about remixing her track S&M – and how she’s collaborating with an artist by popular demand.
The two starlets quickly tweeted their excitement about working together, with Britney asking if people are ready for it.
Rihanna is already is trouble with her brightly coloured, midly controversial S&M video – David LaChapelle claims some of the sequences in the video are derived from his world renowned pictures.
A livid, shirtless, Chris Brown stormed out of the “Good Morning America” studio set after the shows co-anchor Robin Roberts asked him about his ex girlfriend, Rihanna. According to E!Online a visibly upset Chris Brow reportedly threw a chair at a window in his dressing room, then ripped off his shirt before leaving the building after being questioned about Rihanna.
Chris Brown was on the show to promote his latest album F.A.M.E but Robin Roberts questioned him about his current situation with singer Rihanna several times.
Robin Roberts asked: “What’s going on now is that recently, the restraining order against you that Rihanna had issued has been relaxed . have you seen each other, been around each other?”
Chris Brown replied: “I mean not really, it’s not really a big deal, that situation. I think I’m past that in my life, and I think today’s the album day so that’s what I’m focused on, so everyone go and get that album.
“I’ve been focused on this album … definitely this album is what I want them to talk about, and not the kind of stuff that happened two years ago.”
Brown added that his new LP’s title, F.A.M.E, stands for “forgiving all my enemies and fans of my everything,” in particular those who stood by him in “everything that I went through”.
After the interview Chris Brown performed a song on the show, then he got to his dressing room and started screaming, losing his temper and then he stormed out.
TMZ reports that soon after the incident, Brown tweeted, “I’m so over people bringing this past … up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs …” But later on Chris removed the tweet.
What do you think about this incident? Did Chris Brown overreact or did Robin Roberts push too hard?
No no no, not together (phew!), but it seems celebrities do not learn from previous ‘leaks’ of naked pictures.
Well, the latest ‘victims’ are Chris Brown and Britney Spears.
Britney is being sued by an ex-bodyguard, Fernando Flores, who alleges the superstar sent him nude pictures of herself, in compromising positions nogal.
Of course Britney denies the claim, but Fernando is going ahead with his lawsuit (he lodged a sexual harassment case against the singer) and is threatening to release the pictures, which a ‘friend of Fernando’ says will shock and disgust Britney’s fans.
And then there’s Chris Brown – who I thought was getting his life back after the Rihanna-beating incident.
The internet went crazy this weekend, after an ex ‘leaked’ nude pictures of Chris standing in front of a mirror while taking his phone up to take a snapshot.
In the picture, ‘Chris’ sports blonde hair (his fairly new hairdo) and tattoos, similar to the singer’s.
Then again, there’s no such thing as bad publicity right? After all, it helps so many artists when they’re about to release a new album or movie.
Speaking of, Chris is releasing his new CD in three weeks which will be followed by a world tour.
