Rihanna announces the launch of Kiss by Rihanna, the third fragrance in the performer’s namesake RiRi collection (following RiRi and Crush). The new seductive and playful fragrance for women is out internationally now - just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Mesmerizing, whimsical, and unexpected, the dynamic addition to the RiRi fragrance trilogy is flirtatious, feminine and lighthearted.
The white floral fragrance is comprised of lush, tantalizing top notes of Neroli, with a playful kiss of Juicy Plum and Freesia. The heart of the fragrance, consisting of Orange Blossom, Gardenia, and Asian Peony, is rounded out with Cashmere Wood, Cedarwood and Ambergris to form a warm and seductive base.
Kiss is Rihanna's 9th fragrance. Purchase them all here.
Designed by Rihanna herself, the Kiss by Rihanna bottle reflects the signature feminine lines and styling of the two preceding fragrances in the RiRi collection; RiRi by Rihanna, and Crush by Rihanna. Exuding sophistication and allure, the striking powder blue tinted flacon is accentuated by a contrasting golden cap featuring the collection’s signature sphere. Reflecting the refined simplicity of the bottle design, the outer packaging features a pearlized blue finish emitting an iridescent luster and understated elegance.
Kiss by Rihanna is be available at Macy's, Macys.com and other fine retailers for $60 (3.4oz EDP Spray), $36 (1.0oz EDP Spray) and $20 (0.2oz EDP Rollerball).
Rihanna scored three nominations for this year's Brit Awards, which honors music released both in the United Kingdom and worldwide!
Voting for select Brit Awards is now open at the ceremony's site. The 2017 Brit Awards, hosted by Michael Buble, will take place at London's the O2 on February 22nd.
Rihanna previously won the International Female Solo Artist award twice, in 2011 and 2012. Watch her speeches:
Rihanna rakes in her 28th career leader on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated Jan. 21), as "Love on the Brain" bumps 2-1. Originally a ballad, "Love" was lifted into clubs via remixes from Barry Harris, Gigamesh and Don Diablo, among others.
In the tally of the most No. 1s in the chart's 40-plus year history, Rihanna remains second only to Madonna, who has scored a record 46 No. 1s. Late last year, Rihanna was named the No. 3 Dance Club Artist in Billboard's Greatest of All Time recap of the ranking's first 40 years.
"Love" is Rihanna's first No. 1 of 2017, following a year in which she earned four leaders, placing her in elite territory. Only four acts have scored four No. 1s in a calendar year, and Rihanna is the only one to do so four times (2007, 2010, 2011 and 2016). Lady Gaga tallied four in a January-December span twice (2009 and 2011) and Beyoncé (2009) and Katy Perry (2014) each earned the honor once.
Last night when fans organised #LOTBTopTenParty the song reached #11 on US iTunes!
Everyone's favorite dreadlocks are back!
This Thursday (January 12) Rihanna was photographed out and about in New York City showing off her dreadlocks again. She took them off last month and is reportedly rocking them again to film new "Ocean's 8" scenes. Click here for photos.
Rihanna started filming "Ocean's 8" in early November and has since been photographed with co-stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter. Find photos here.
The film is a a spin-off of the Ocean's Trilogy and will be released on June 8, 2018.
The producer and co-creator of Bates Motel, Carlton Cuse (Lost), never thought Bates Motel was a story that needed eight or nine seasons. Cuse and co-creator Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights) saw the show coming to an end after season five, which A&E and all involved are indeed planning to do. The show returns next month for its last season, which features actor/singer Rihanna in a key supporting role.
Below, watch the Bates Motel season five trailer. It doesn't future RiRi though.
Rihanna co-stars as Marion Crane, who was played by Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock‘s Psycho. We’ll see whether the people behind the A&E series have enough bravery (or foolishness) to recreate the famous shower sequence… but the trailer gives us no reason to think that. There’s sadly no sight of Rihanna in this advertisement, set entirely in the Bates’ household, which is now home to one, Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore).
Season four ended with the death of Norma Bates, but Vera Farmiga’s presence, of course, is still pivotal in season five, which takes place two years after last season. Alex Romero (Nestor Carbonell), Dylan Massett (Max Thierot), and Emma Decody (Olivia Cooke), often a bright spot of this series, are returning.
Things for Norma have somehow worsened since the season four finale. Last year, when Cuse was promoting season four, he commented on Bates Motel‘s ending, and how it wasn’t the show makers’ “desire or obligation to exactly align our storytelling with what goes on in the movie.” Cuse told Dread Central Ehrin and him don’t think it’d be satisfying to repeat Psycho‘s ending, so maybe even with Crane’s involvement in season five, things won’t get too familiar and go exactly where fans might expect.
Here’s the synopsis for Bates Motel season five:
Season five of “Bates Motel” picks up almost two years later and finds Norman (Freddie Highmore), a grown man now, living a double life. Publicly he’s a happy and well-adjusted member of the White Pine Bay community, but at home Norman struggles; his violent blackouts continue to increase as ‘Mother’ (Vera Farmiga) threatens to take over his mind completely. Meanwhile, Dylan Massett (Max Thierot) and Emma Decody (Olivia Cooke), since leaving White Pine Bay, have been living their lives blissfully unaware of Norma’s death and Norman’s full on descent into psychosis. Unfortunately, for them, they will soon find themselves drawn back into Norman’s insanity, while a vengeful Alex Romero (Nestor Carbonell), who is currently incarcerated for a perjury, hungers for a chance to destroy his stepson and avenge the murder of his one true love, Norma Bates.
Bates Motel returns February 20th.
Nielsen has released its annual music industry sales report of 2016, and Drake, Rihanna, and The Chainsmokers dominated the top 10 list of on demand audio streams. Only three of the top 10 songs on the list did not feature one of those three artists.
It's no secret by now that 2016 was a stellar year for pop artists Drake, Rihanna, and The Chainsmokers. All three artists had numerous pop hits throughout the year and featured at the top of the Billboard, Spotify, and other music charts.
Now measurement organization Nielsen, which also reports the official ratings for TV viewing, has released their figures for 2016, and the results show just how dominant those three artists were for the year. In fact, there are just three songs on the Nielsen list of top 10 on demand audio streams that don't feature either Drake, Rihanna, or The Chainsmokers.
Three of Rihanna songs were placed in TOP10! The number two song on Nielsen's list is Rihanna's addictive "Work," which once again features Drake, with 346.9 million streams. It's Rihanna again at number four with the gritty "Needed Me", followed once again by the lethal combo of Rihanna and Drake at number seven with "Too Good."
