Thirst Trap Alert: Tinashe Sizzles On February Complex Cover

Tinashe Complex

Good Lord! Tinashe got us again!

Landing her first magazine cover of 2016, underground favorite turned R&B vixen, Tinashe, is heating up the pages of Complex for their February/March 2016 issue.

“This is definitely a racy photo shoot,” the singer told the magazine. “This is probably one of my racier ones. The only other one that could rival this shoot is my Playboy shoot but I think this one’s actually hotter.”

Tinashe, who’s readying her sophomore album Joyride, whets appetites with the eye-popping pics—she sips from a crazy straw (while showing underboob), drifts in a punch bowl, and climbs out of a glass of ice water.

“With this cover in particular, as opposed to others that I’ve done in the past, I definitely had a little bit more fun, which was cool,” she said. “We got to shoot some stuff that was really colorful and lighthearted. I had a little bit more creative control than I normally have so I had a really, really great time on this shoot.”

Grammy Award winning artist Miguel covers the latest issue of Wonderland magazine.  As he continues to promote his critically acclaimed third studio album ‘Wildheart’, the R&B star discusses his artistic growth, sex symbol status and his musical objectives.

“Both my music and my performance have evolved. I think there is a kookiness to who I am that I don’t care to filter out anymore,” said Miguel. “When you’re live there’s no, ‘wait’, ‘delete’ or being too cool. I always want to push myself to the end of my breath. Can I still sing in key, all the times jumping up and down”?

Rihanna Covers Vanity Fair, Talks Chris Brown, Love Life & Reputation


With little news about her long-awaited eighth studio album, Rihanna graces the cover of Vanity Fair for the first time. The 27-year-old superstar traveled to Cube with famed photographer Annie Leibovitz for the shoot. Rocking wavy red hair, she hit up a bar in Havana and bared all while lying naked in the bedroom of the Josie Alonso House, wearing only leopard Manolo Blahnik mules. She was also greeted by a throng of young fans in the streets of Old Havana.

In her most candid interview yet, Rihanna opened up about her highly-publicized love life. While she’s recently been linked to Travi$ Scott, she says her last official boyfriend was Chris Brown and prior to that, Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp.

Until then, the search continues for Mr. Right, who according to RiRi, will be “a very extraordinary gentleman, with a lot of patience.” But she’s in no rush. “I don’t want it right now. I can’t really be everything for someone. This is my reality right now.”

She’s currently focusing on R8, which has been delayed, says Jay Z, because “she wants it to be perfect.”

Plus, she discusses her “bad girl” reputation, love for Eminem, and even Rachel Dolezal.
