Rihanna takes flight for a special cover feature in the March 150th Anniversary issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Opting for a very unique photoshoot, the pop starlet channels Amelia Earhart in looks that are utilitarian, modern, and sexy.

“There’s something so special about a woman who dominates in a man’s world,” says Rihanna. “It takes a certain grace, strength, intelligence, fearlessness, and the nerve to never take no for an answer. Amelia Earhart was such a dynamic force in her industry, setting multiple aviation records in her time. So it was a no-brainer for me to team up with Harper’s Bazaar in honor of a woman who held her own with the big boys.”

In the magazine, RiRi dazzles with vintage aviation looks by who’s who of high fashion. From Tod’s to Hermés to Dior, the Bad Gal captivates the camera with looks that reference the legendary female pilot.

The March issue of Harper’s Bazaar hits newsstands on Feb. 21. Check out the stunning photos below.

Soulja Boy Says He’s Going To Beat Chris Brown “For Rihanna”

 

Soulja Boy and Chris Brown are still beefing and the rapper has revealed yet another layer of their beef. The Atlanta rapper claims that the reason he and Breezy are on the path to fisticuffs is the R&B singer’s ex-girlfriend, Rihanna.

Sitting down for an exclusive interview with Hollywood Unlocked, Soulja Boy was flanked by his trainer for his upcoming boxing match with Brown. An animated Soulja explained from his vantage point on how their issues originally began and not over Karrueche Tran.

“What he really mad about is I was with Rihanna,” said Soulja. “Ain’t nobody woulda never knew that, nigga, if he ain’t call my phone trippin’ over Karrueche. I was with Rihanna, son. Rihanna, nigga!”

Soulja continued by saying that he was at the same 2009 Grammy Awards party that Brown and Rihanna attended and was blown away by the news of their domestic violence incident the next night. Soulja explains that shortly after the event, he was on tour with Lil Wayne and Rihanna’s management reached out to him to have her attend the show.

However, the wrinkle in the tale is that Soulja was dating Teyana Taylor (yes, that Teyana Taylor) and allegedly kicked her off the tour bus while Rihanna visited so he could console her. He adds that Taylor called Brown in anger and told him that Rihanna and Soulja were together.

Soulja then says that Rihanna invited him over to her New York hotel for a movie night with her and some friends, which he claims Brown called and questioned him about.

The “Crank That’ star didn’t try to present facts that he and Rihanna were an item, but there are many moving parts in the bizarre tale. Soulja turned the heat up on the matter by way of a series of tweets on Sunday (January 8), including clowning Brown for using Mike Tyson as his trainer for their event and throwing even lower blows. Peep the chatter below.

eNEWS: Rihanna Unfollows Jennifer Lopez on Instagram

  
Avid Instagram Users and Fans noticed that over the weekend that’s Rihanna unfollowed J.Lo causing many to believe Jennifer went against girl code and romanced (or still is romancing) her friend’s ex-boyfriend. 
The rapper and Lopez sparked relationship speculation earlier this month when after attending two of her Las Vegas concerts back-to-back, Drizzy hosted a super exclusive gathering that Jennifer just so happened to attend. An insider told E! News it was “a super intimate dinner” held at celeb-loved spot Delilah in West Hollywood, and the pair reportedly ducked out together. 
As for Jennifer and Rihanna’s friendship, these two seemingly go way back. 
Earlier this year, the Barbadian beauty gifted Lopez with a pair of navy boots from her design collaboration with Manolo Blahnik. In a handwritten note to the “On the Floor” singer, Rih called Jennifer “the baddest,” adding, “Because I know you’re gonna wear them better than me!!!”
Lopez loved the thigh-high heels so much, she ended up wearing them in her music video for “Ain’t Your Mama,” and Rihanna took to Instagram with a gracious message for her pal: “Thanks for the support! I’m having such a f–king moment knowing that forever I have proof of a bad one like you in my designs!!!”

Then in March 2015, Jennifer caught up with E! News about her Home co-star. “I’m a huge Rihanna fan…and I feel like she’s such a girl’s girl, which I love, because I’m a girl’s girl and she seems very sweet,” the 47-year-old mother of two told us. 
Asked whether she would ever do a duet with the Grammy winner, Lopez replied, “Absolutely! Who wouldn’t?!” 
Not all love is lost between Jennifer and Rihanna, though. It appears Lopez does indeed still follow the singer as well as Drake, and he too follows Lopez and his on-again, off-again love. As for Rihanna, she does not follow Drake

Rihanna Covers CR Fashion Book as Marie Antoinette

RihRih keeps the fashion trends coming.

Rihanna has transformed into a modern-day Marie Antoinette in the latest issue of CR Fashion Book.

Fashionista Carine Roitfeld teamed up with famed photographer Terry Richardson for the concept-driven shoot.

“I wanted to show that [Marie Antoinette] is not just a villain to be despised or a muse to be channeled,” explained Roitfeld. “She is neither, actually. She is a prototype for contemporary fame, body, beauty, celebrity, and femininity. Everything done by her and to her has influenced society’s concept of womanhood, for better or worse.”

For the shoot, Rihanna rocks a pink top by Dilara Findikoglu and a basket-like skirt from Le Vestiaire. She also confidently grabs one of her breasts in Dior and Kunza. Finally, she appears holding a baby while rocking a sheer Rosamosario dress and underwear from Fleur of England.

Rihanna was chosen for the shoot because she has a regal aura, according to Roitfeld.

“The magazine is crafted around key elements of her [Marie Antoinette’s] life–her exuberant sense of fashion, her elaborate hairdos, her intense sexuality–almost like a modern biography through fashion imagery,” she added. “And on the cover is Rihanna, who shares with Marie Antoinette an air of royalty that I, and the world it seems, find intoxicating.”
