Yesterday, Fleur told you that the Bajan Yodeler and the Forehead Tap Dancer from Tappahannock were uniting for a duet, once again. The song, “Nobodies Business,” will be featured on Rihanna’s November release, “Unapologetic,” and we’ve got a snippet for your listening pleasure, or whatever.
“You’ll always be the one that I wanna come home to, Boy/Let me love you and show you how special you are /I wanna be your baby, you’ll always be my baby/Tell me what you want now”
Why does it have to be so catchy? WHYYYYY?
Today’s theme: prayer circles. Everybody needs one. And apparently they need a spell checker too, “nobodies?”
Are you digging this? Or should the busted Ashford & Simpson give it a rest?
If you’re a read-between-the-tweets type like I am, then all hell must be breaking loose in the relationship between the Forehead Tapper from Tappahannock and his seat filler lady love, Karrueche Tran. You see, the innawebs have been buzzing that Rihanna and Chris Brown have been publicly rubbing on each other in de club, disappearing to the bathroom and even tipping out of the same hotel (but, separately of course). Now, whenever anything makes the “news,” I go to the twitters for verification. You know, everything on the twitters is true, right? So, let’s go to the tale of the tweets, shall we? Taste The Brew for more
A tasteless shirt featuring Rihanna and Chris Brown has been pulled from a music festival in the UK. The shirts featured Rihanna on the front with the caption “I’d hit that” and Chris Brown on the back with his fist raised. The shirts were selling at the “family-friendly” Beacons Festival in England for about $20. Obviously meant to be a play on wanting to tap that arse sexually, the shirts also refer to the 2009 incident where Chris really did “hit that” all up and down his Lambo. Organizers removed the shirts after guests complained. But one concert attendee says the shirts remained on sale for the whole weekend. Tacky.
Funny lady Joan Rivers said what we’ve all been thinking about Rihanna’s love confession for Chris Brown during her interview with Oprah this month. During the sit down, Rih said that Chris was the love of her life and that she’s forgiven him for going all rabid hyena on her in the Laborghini that time. Well, Joan took to her Twitter to give Rihanna a virtual slap:
Rihanna confessed to Oprah Winfrey that she still loves Chris Brown. Idiot! Now it’s MY turn to slap her.
Oprah Winfrey’s guest booking department is working overtime to bring you interviews with the most talked about people in the news…later for that soul-seeking, om! chanting stuff that she’d really prefer we watch. Stedman’s snugglebunny wants your eyeballs on her struggling network, son! Gotta keep the lights on in the mansions. Oprah recently traveled to Barbados (which has to be one of the most beautiful places ever…and they have rum, lots and lots of it…but I digress) to meet and interview Rihanna. The Big O says she was quite impressed that Badgyal Rih Rih wasn’t so bad afterall.
No mention of the infamous Chris Brown attack in the promo, but you can bet your last money, honey (RIP Don Cornelius) that Oprah is going to go for the gusto and ask about it and there will be some waterworks.
Oprah’s Next Chapter with Rihanna airs on OWN, Sunday, August 19th at 9 pm (ET). Will you watch?
