The second annual Diamond Ball to benefit the Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) kicked off this Thursday, December 10 with host Kevin Hart and a special performance by Lionel Richie. The CLF was founded in 2012 by Rihanna to honor her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite. The CLF works to improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts and culture. Rihanna’s inspiring history of service to others continues in CLF’s mission, programs and partnerships.
Rihanna helped raise over $3 million at the event. Read more here. Her manager Jay Brown won the auction for a replica of her Dior dress at $45,000.
“The energy, the crowd, the vibe,” Rihanna told People about the event. “I love everything about it!”
“It’s overwhelming to see so many of the people that I care about come together to support a cause that is near and dear to my heart,” she added. — Just Jared

Via Rolling Stone: Last night in Los Angeles, Rihanna celebrated the debut of her tough, NSFW video for “Bitch Better Have My Money” by taking hostages. Nearly 100 fans were invited to a Tidal-sponsored event, blindfolded and then put onto luxury buses with the windows covered by black curtains — destination unknown.
Invites were emailed on Monday to local Tidal subscribers and the quickest to respond were given just enough details to attend. Some arrived expecting a live Rihanna performance. Others didn’t expect to see her at all. Either way, it was to be another exclusive “Tidal X” event promoting the service launched by Jay Z and now co-owned by a crowd of major artists, including Rihanna herself. During the commute, a host led a Rihanna quiz show on the first bus, throwing cash at blindfolded fans for reciting lyrics and answering trivia questions. When the buses landed, it was at the landmark Bob Baker Marionette Theater downtown, where ancient handmade puppets greeted guests inside.
Rihanna’s brand new video for “Bitch Better Have My Money” directed by Rihanna herself and Megaforce just premiered!
Ya girl got director skillz!!! The concept for this piece came to me 8 months ago!!! So you can imagine how anxious I am right now!!! 😬😬😬
Rihanna made her first trip to the Japanese capital in three years as the guest of honor of Dior, which staged a repeat show of its fall collection here Tuesday evening.
The singer entered the curved glass facade of the National Art Center Tokyo, where the show was held, wearing sunglasses and a denim minidress with floral appliqués on its flared skirt. Ornate, lace-up jacquard ankle boots and a pink and burgundy abstract print handbag completed her look.
Sitting front row with Rihanna were Dior chief executive officer Sidney Toledano and LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton chairman and chief executive officer Bernard Arnault. But since the brand’s artistic director Raf Simons was absent, the show came to a rather abrupt and anticlimactic end after its finale.
The last time Rihanna was in Tokyo was for the premiere of the film “Battleship” in 2012, and she said she was excited to be attending her first fashion show in the city. In addition to the Dior show, she noted she enjoys taking in the fashions of Japanese women.
“I love Japanese style,” she said. “I love the way they put it all together.” She added that the way Japanese women mix different elements and styles is similar to her own approach to dressing.
Toledano also praised Japanese consumers, saying they require a very high level of “innovation, quality [and] excellence.”
“They love modernity, they love fashion, but they want to do it with respect to a high level of excellence in the workmanship and things like that,” the executive said.
Rihanna will stick around Tokyo on Wednesday, when she plans to head out into the city to see even more of what the Japanese are known for.
“I want to go, not really window shopping, but I want to go around and check out the beauty products, the packaging…I want to see all of it,” she said.
Rihanna was spotted arriving with her friends at 1OAK nightclub yesterday evening. Check out more pictures here.
Rihanna was seen leaving her NYC apartment yesterday and heading to an airport (See pictures here). She was later spotted in Oakland (California) attending Game One of the 2015 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers at ORACLE Arena.
Rihanna was spotted again last night in NYC while she was arriving at her apartment. Check more pictures here.
During her recent visit to NYC (before heading to London/Miami/Havana), Rihanna visited Mr Brainwash’s studio where she did an impromptu photoshoot. Check out the pictures on our Facebook!
Our fav 247paps also recorded a short video with RiRi when she “talks” about R8!
Rihanna drew a crowd Friday while cruising down Havana’s Malecon shore boulevard in a classic American convertible from the 1950s.
The media reports that she did a shoot together with Annie Leibovitz in the capital’s central district of El Vedado and at the La Guarida restaurant, where the Cuban movie “Strawberry and Chocolate” was filmed.
