Is there ever a week where Rihanna is not in the news? Well, this past weekend was no different. Little Ms. Stay Relevant debuted her new collection for River island at London Fashion week and most people were quite disappointed at the collection. The looks were very Rihanna, you know, sexy, minimal and bare.
But the collection didn’t make me want to rush for my credit card.
Hmmmm... are these even clothes?
Then the most bizarre news of all: The British newspaper The Sunday Times dubbed Rihanna as the new Princess Diana. *blank stare*
The Bajan songstress promoted the newspaper and mag by instagraming a pic of the cover which had her face photoshopped together with Diana’s. I don’t know about you but this feels pretty blasphemous to me?
“Not since Diana rocketed from a shy kindergarten aide to a lean, mean fashion machine has there been such a ravishingly seductive flirtation with the world press,” The Sunday Times wrote.
All eyes will be on Oscar Pistorius tomorrow as he is set to appear in court for his formal bail application for allegedly murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. The hearing coincides with Reeva’s memorial service in Port Elizabeth.
The Twitterverse has been abuzz with news reports, tabloid sensationalism and personal opinions over the incident and what really happened. Judging by the South African Sunday papers, the Blade Runner is seemingly guilty. But we wait for the saga to play out in court. The stage is set for what is set to be a gripping court case.
