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.

Ciara Covers ‘Shape’ Magazine, Talks Losing 60 Pounds in 4 Months


Say what you will about Ciara, but one thing’s for sure, her body is ON POINT!

Regardless of how anyone may feel about the singer/entertainer nowadays, one thing that will always be said is that her body looks incredible. Covering the September issue of Shape Magazine, the mommy of one took some time to chat with the famed publication about her journey of dropping 60 pounds after she had her son.

Ciara states that right after she had baby Future, she still was in the era of post-pregnancy where working out wasn’t an option. So, what did she do? Eat. A lot. And as a result, the slim and trim songstress gained an incredible 60 pounds! “When I was pregnant with Future, one thing I learned quickly was, don’t ever let a pregnant lady be hungry, because when I was, I was like the Tasmanian Devil! I indulged in all the good food the world has to offer. After he was born—when I couldn’t exercise yet—I kept eating, and I gained 60 pounds. But as soon as the doctor said I could start training again, I was on the treadmill the very next day. Once I got back into it, I worked out two or three times daily. I would go to Gunnar [Peterson] first for my one-hour training session, then I’d have two more cardio sessions later in the day. That, along with a really clean eating plan, was how I lost 60 pounds in four months. It was a very intense program, and I was extremely focused on it,” she said.

How did she stay focused on not eating all of the wrong things? Well according to her, it was all in the mind. CiCi told Shape, “The food isn’t going anywhere.’ You know those days when you think you have to have a plate of pasta right now? When I’m trying to be good, I take a minute to ask myself, Do you really need to eat all this crazy stuff? It will still be around if you want it later.'”

Ciara also discussed her love for boxing, achieving success and much more. Be sure to pick up your copy of Shape when it hits stands August 18 and check out a few snaps and behind-the-scenes video below!
