- Rihanna’s YouTube channel just reached 5 billion views! She’s the first person ever to reach this peak. Congrats, RiRi!
- Songwriter Sia, who wrote Rihanna’s “Diamonds”, was recently asked: “Have there been any songs you’ve given to other artists that you wish you recorded and released as your own?” She said: “There’s one that a I just gave to Rihanna. [Laughs] Like as soon as I played it for her manager, he flipped over it and [when] he left the house I felt sick. I was like, ‘F–k.’ It was going to be on my record, but he was over and I was playing him loads of jams. And I was like, ‘Maybe you’ll like this one…’ [Other than that] not really, I mean I did like ‘Perfume.’ I would have kept that for myself, but Britney [Spears] is a really sweet gal and I was happy to give it away.”
- Rumour has it that Rihanna will be in Paris next month to promote her latest fragrance, Rogue. Stay tuned for more details… Rogue is nominated for Favorite Celebrity Fragrance. Vote here.

According to Vogue, the star of last week’s fancy-shmancy Met Gala was… a tie! Both Rihanna and Beyoncé grace the cover of this year’s Met Gala special edition, out now.
“When we fell upon the photo of Rihanna AND Beyoncé, we thought, ‘Bingo,’ ” says Chloe Malle, Vogue’s social editor and editrix of the 132-page annual glossy.
After leaving a celeb-filled after-party at the Standard Hotel at 1 a.m., Malle and five other sleepy-eyed staffers gathered at the Vogue offices at 4:30 a.m. to put together the book — and to gossip about the event. Conversation ranged from Rihanna’s abs (rock-hard) and Lauren Santo Domingo’s JAR diamond rose necklace (“major,” according to Malle) to whether model-of-the-moment Kate Upton’s barmaid-cum-flamenco dancer frock was a fashion no-no.
