Shakira has opened up about her new collaboration with Rihanna and says working with the "Diamonds" singer was "utopia".
Shakira releases her new single "Can't Remember To Forget You" next Monday (January 13) with Rihanna on guest vocals and says the pair got on incredibly well in the recording studio.
Rihanna was spotted at a game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Atlanta Hawks last night at Barclays Center along with Jen and Cara Delevingne. The same day she was also seen at Da Silvano restaurant. Click "continue reading..." for more pictures.
Rihanna was photographed at Da Silvano Restaurant in New York City on Monday (January 6). She was later seen with Cara Delevingne at the Brooklyn Nets game at Barclays Center. Take a look at a few photos after the jump and check back tomorrow for more.
Rihanna has confirmed details about her upcoming collaboration with Shakira. RiRi retweeted a message posted online that announced the title as "Can't Remember To Forget You" and a premiere date of January 13, next Monday!
Shakira shot the music video last month. Video director Joseph Kahn tweeted today: "Third time working with Rihanna and she gets hotter each time. It's kind of superhuman."
Pitbull previously revealed the pair had recorded a song together, after he explained that he originally wanted Rihanna to feature on his latest single "Timber".
Rihanna has been video director Anthony Mandler's muse, as the two have collaborated on 17 videos together, spanning from “Unfaithful” in 2006 to “Diamonds.” He recently talked to Vanity Fair and was asked about RiRi. Read below:
Having worked with Rihanna on 17 videos, how would you say she’s evolved since “Unfaithful”?
She just had her 13th Number One single, and she’s still only 25.

Via Teen Vogue: When I enter Rihanna's hotel suite overlooking Sandy Lane Beach, her sprawling crew (including her mother, aunt, manager, and three personal photographers) is busy at work. Meanwhile, the Lanvin-clad superstar is tucked into a corner, mid–duck face. She's posing with her new M.A.C. Viva Glam lipstick while her bestie–cum–staff photographer, Melissa Forde, snaps pics. Images of the new shade have just mysteriously leaked into the blogosphere, sending her handlers into a dizzying panic. But not RiRi; she's as cool as a cucumber, even in 100 percent humidity.
As the new face of M.A.C. Viva Glam, the singer is following in the footsteps of Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj in an effort to support the M.A.C. AIDS Fund, which has raised a remarkable $300 million in the fight against HIV and AIDS. The cause, RiRi tells me as we cozy up on the couch, is close to her heart:
According to UNAIDS—a United Nations partnership that focuses on universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care, and support—approximately 2,300 young people become infected with HIV each day. Even scarier: Globally, HIV infection rates are twice as high in young women ages 15 to 24 as they are in young men.
Many will argue that Rihanna is an unlikely role model to spread the gospel of safe sex, what with her racy Instagram feed and explicit music videos (I mean, have you seen "Pour It Up"?). But with a whopping 125,887,954 followers at press time (me included!), the undisputed fact is: Girl's got our attention. And according to @badgalriri, she wants to use it for good.
Reflecting on her own teen years, the reformed tomboy admits she was a late bloomer in the dating game due to one unwavering barrier: a strict mom. (She says her flat chest and mosquito-bitten skin didn't help, either:
(When she tells me this, I hear her mother giggle from across the room.) As RiRi opens up about everything from her hard-to-imagine awkward phase to her mission to save lives one lipstick at a time, the most beautiful girl in the world gets, well, even more beautiful.
