When you wake up in the morning and you open Instagram and all of the sudden BadgalRiri teases 3 new songs of her next album R8. When you read in the news she is releasing 3 songs featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming DreamWorks animated movie Home and that in addition to contributing music to the film, Rihanna also lends her voice to the character Tip. And just in case you haven’t had enough with that, you discover she is the new Dior girl becoming the first black woman to do so and that she is about to start filming a Documentary about her professional and personal life, then, just then, you realize it is not spring, its Rihanna season.
As you all might know, Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke were ordered to pay $7.2mm to the estate of Marvin Gaye for copyright infringement in the case surrounding their 2013 super hit “Blurred Lines.”
A Los Angeles jury has decided Robin Thicke noticeably ripped off Marvin Gaye‘s 1977 hit “Got to Give It Up” when he wrote the smash hit “Blurred Lines” with Pharrell Williams and T.I.
But after the judge decision, the lines are still blurred. Do you want to know why?
According to Deadline, Rihanna will release a Documentary about the super star life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon.
The Documentary will be Directed by Peter Berg, the one who gave RiRi her acting start with a role in his movie Battleship.

Two decades after his death, we thought there was not much more to say about the Nirvana lead singer, guitarist, and primary songwriter.
But we were wrong. There is still so much to say. There is a great story behind the American musician and rock icon specially after watching the trailer of his documentary Montage of Heck, premiered at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and directed by Brett Morgen.
The arrival in UK cinemas will be later this spring and in will be premiered on US television HBO on May 4.
We have to wait a little bit but we can at least enjoy the trailer… Seguir leyendo
¡Ya es oficial! WWD lo ha confirmado esta mañana. Rihanna es la nueva imagen de Dior para la campaña Primavera/Verano convirtiéndose en la primera mujer negra en modelar para la firma francesa. Algo muy difícil de conseguir, teniendo en cuenta que la industria de la moda no se caracteriza precisamente por su diversidad racial.
Tal y como mencioné en otro post (que pronto traduciré) Case Study: Rihanna as a Brand , no es la primera vez que la super estrella firma un contrato en la industria de la moda. Ya protagonizó la campaña Primavera / Verano de Balmain el año pasado y ha sido recientemente nombrada Directora Creativa de Puma. Ahora es una Chica Dior.
¿Qué podemos esperar de este acuerdo?
It’s official! WWD confirmed it! Rihanna is the new model for Dior‘s new campaign becoming the first black woman to sign the deal. EPIC! Specially considering the fact that fashion industry is notorious for its narrow mindedness when it comes to diversity.
As mentioned in other post Case Study: Rihanna as a Brand, it’s not the first time the Grammy Award-winning singer inks a deal in fashion industry. She has already graced a campaign for Balmain and was recently named a creative director at Puma. And now she is a Dior Girl.
What can we expect?
Yes, it’s real, and creepy… The NYC restaurant All’onda has created a special menu to commemorate the Brooklyn emcee’s 18th death anniversary, March 9.
Chefs Chris Jaeckle and Dale Talde (of Talde restaurant) have collaborated to create the six-course menu.
“Dale and I are both huge hip-hop lovers and Biggie fans, so it was sort of a natural choice for us,” Jaeckle told Billboard.
The chefs approached designing the menu by taking some of Biggie’s lyrics and “his roots and heritage from Brooklyn“.
