Pour It Up.
Rihanna's long-awaited "Pour It Up" music video was released recently. The track reached No. 1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and also became Rihanna's 33rd Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Rihanna is on the cover of the November issue of Glamour Magazine.
The photos were taken in Rihanna's hometown Barbados in August.
RiRi talks about nailing her style and "learning to be fearless
AMA Icon Award.
ihanna was the big star of the 2013 American Music Awards. She was given the very first AMA Icon Award and performed "Diamonds," one of her 12 Hot 100 No 1s. She also won the Soul/R&B Female Artist Award.
Andy Samberg once again scored an Emmy nomination for one of his “Saturday Night Live” digital shorts with a pop star, and he told AccessHollywood.com that if Rihanna is free, he’d love to perform “Shy Ronnie” on TV’s big night.
“Oh my God, yeah! If they want us to,” Andy told Access at Lexus’ Darker Side of Green event in West Hollywood on Thursday. “I think getting her to do it will be harder.”
The skit, which netted Andy an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics, featured Rihanna singing to a classroom of kids alongside Andy, in a red wig, playing the part of “Shy Ronnie,” a bashful youngster who choked each time she tossed a verse over to him.
Lil’ Kim released her own remix to Rihanna’s “Hard,” but reveals that another pairing could be in the works. “I’m a huge Rihanna fan, and she’s a friend of mine, so if I had to guess, I’m 90% sure that song is probably in the works,” she told Australian website Lifelounge. But Kim, who’s currently playing intimate shows in the U.S. and abroad, doesn’t want people to judge the song before it happens. “I look at it this way: if it happens, it happens. And it should be a surprise. It shouldn’t be something that people are anticipating, or have their own personal opinions on it before it even comes out. So I probably won’t ever mention that again.” Although she may have choice words for Diddy and Drake, it’s all love when it comes to RiRi. “I just love Rihanna, I think she’s great,” gushed Kim.
Everyone is begging for a beat from Alex Da Kid these days. The British producer currently has two songs in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100—Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie” and B.o.B and Hayley Williams’ “Airplanes.” Alex stopped by Rap-Up’s Pre-BET Awards Lounge last weekend to score some free gifts and chat about his latest projects including Rihanna.

Many of the collaborators working with Rihanna on her new album are looking to take her from the dark and moody tone of her last album — inspired mostly by the break-up with her famous ex — into a happier place, but if London-based producer/DJ duo Liv and Mim, collectively known as Nervo, have their way, singing about love won’t be off the menu.
Liv and Mim, twin sisters from Australia, known for writing and producing songs for pop elite like Ke$ha, Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, and Kelly Rowland, and longtime collaborators of David Guetta, tell NeonLimelight.com they’ve crafted something special for the pop princess that they hope will make the final cut of RiRi’s as-yet-untitled fifth album.
“It’s a love song,” Liv told us coyly, not wanting to go into detail since the song hasn’t officially been picked up for the album, though Team Rihanna “really like” it. Pressed for more, she answered: “It has a quirky lyric actually… a really quirky lyric”
Moving from pitching the track to getting into the studio with Rihanna to bring it to life would be music to Nervo’s ears since Rihanna is high on their list of artists they’d love to work with.
“I just love her and I think ‘Rude Boy’ is such a great record,” Liv said. “She’s on fire. I really can’t wait to work with her.”
Rihanna’s new album is currently scheduled for release later this year.
Rapper Drake keeps being asked about Rihanna because of this song. He recently said:
“I addressed it on my album. It’s not a broken heart, it’s just for me, I’m in such a confident position that I’m almost numb to feeling small. It’s been so long since a woman has made me feel small and that’s a real emotion. When you want to be a part of a woman’s life and you are nervous, all of these things that maybe I was when I was 15 or 16, it’s just been a while since I felt like that. I really looked at it as paying homage to her for giving me that feeling. I just respect her for bringing that feeling back for me because it was real. It was a real emotion.” [...] “It really wasn’t meant to be some “pity me”. It was one of the most beautiful thing I’ve experienced in a long time. It’s so rare that I feel nervous and small due to a woman’s presence. And I will tell you that, Rihanna had me so overwhelmed at the time that we met and throughout the duration of our friendship (or whatever it was that we had) that she gave me an emotion I truly miss in my life. On the album I wanted to pay homage to her for giving me that emotion. I don’t know when the next time I will feel that. I would say that I was very in to that situation but I wouldn’t say I loved her. I didn’t get to know her well enough to say that I love her.”
When Rihanna released her “Rated R” last fall, she showed fans that she was in a darker, more serious mood. Tracks like “Russian Roulette” and “Hard” were decidedly more introspective than her past club bangers. But if superstar French DJ David Guetta has his way, he’ll have Rih back to singing tunes like her mega-hit “Umbrella.”
“Well, you know I’m a DJ, so I make beats that make you wanna dance,” Guetta told MTV News at the Activision E3 party in Los Angeles. “And I think she was one of the first to do that in that urban world, so you know, I think it would be good for her to do it again.”
While the producer already has some material in mind for the pop star, he said it was just a matter of scheduling.
“We['re] thinking of doing something together, yes,” he revealed. “Yeah, yeah, yeah [the beat's ready], we just have to make sure it’s OK with her schedule and my schedule, ’cause … this is what happens. Unfortunately, it’s not only about the music anymore, it’s also about schedules, which is really boring but, you know.”

As you might know, Rihanna performed twice at London’s O2 Arena with her “Last Girl On Earth Tour”. With the concerts, she earned $1,905,800. UPDATE: In Hamburg she earned $586,496.
Ke$ha revealed she would like to work with Rihanna on her second album. “There are people I’d love to work with obviously [...] I’m like, mildly infatuated with Rihanna who I’m going on tour with and I’m so excited to get to just kick it with her for months, so maybe you’ll see something that comes out of our hang time”
