As you may or may not know, The 6 God just celebrated the 7th annual OVO Fest in his hometown of Toronto, Canada this past weekend. The Canadian pop star had guest appearances from the likes of Future, Rihanna, Popcaan, Kanye West, and other countless artists.

Fans were gazed by Drake and Rihanna’s flirty performances to Work, as well as Too Good, and was later able to turn up to the trap lord Future. And just when you thought this concert couldn’t possibly get any more lit, Kanye being his godly self delivered an important message before his performance. While the crowd was amazed at Yeezy standing on stage, he stated that he and Drake are coming together for a collaborative album.

Kanye blurted out,

Toronto, I got one question for you, Is you all ready for this album, I’m not talking about Pablo.

Later Drake came out on stage to clear up any confusion by saying,

What my brother was asking before was, are you ready if we make an album

And you can imagine how the crowd lost their minds from there. Take a look below.

With Drake and Future’s collaborative mix tape What A Time to Be Alive, making headlines within a few hours of its release there’s no telling what these two may have up their sleeves.

The concert expectedly sold out back to back within the next two nights, showing how much Toronto is in support of Drizzy. In addition to this dope event, Drake made the crowd go insane with his beaming lights, and colorful balls dropping from the ceiling rapping hit singles such as, Started From The Bottom, to HotLine Bling with the crowd echoing every single word. 

Catch a few of the performances below.

Blahnik said the singer’s “drive, passion, creativity and style have been reflected in the designs, with fabulous results — I think everyone is going to love what they are about to see.” He declined to comment further.

The collection features six shoe designs all exclusively designed by Rihanna and Blahnik. Denim Desserts will be on sale May 5 across three store locations in London, Hong Kong and New York. Rihanna is currently the woman’s creative director of Puma where she designed her first shoe, the Creeper. I think we can all agree, she is certainly enlarging her territory with this Blahnik collaboration!

Luckily, I was able to get my hands on a pair of Creepers, because they sold out within three hours of its release on the Puma website. Although these Blahnik shoes are very pricey, ranging from $895-$3995, I am sure they will sell just as well! How do you like the shoe designs in this collab? Did Rihanna nail it, AGAIN?!

rihanna-drake-video-work

Rihanna “Work” her way back to the #1 spot on the chats, with her new island feel track WORK, debuting off her now certified platinum album Anti. This puts the pop princess in the likes of legendary late Michael Jackson, and pop diva Mariah Carey with the record for #1 singles on the Billboard charts.

Rihanna recently dropped the visuals for the new single featuring hip hop rapper Drake. With recent disappointments to fans from cancelled and delayed tour dates, as well as last week Grammy Awards where the star pulled out of a late minute performance.  Rihanna left fans nothing short of disappointment, surprisingly dropping not one but two visuals for the single.  

Part 1 of the video, directed by Director X shows the chart-topping duo in a night posted against the wall, getting it in with a club packed of people dancing and having a good time. The video serves all types of dance hall and island flavor, with tons of whining, grinding and twerking dance moves.

Part 2 of the video, directed by Tim Erem shows Rihanna and Drake in a personal and intimate setting. The scene takes place in a private room where the duo is alone, where the pop princess serves up a sexy and serenading dance with Drake watching from afar.

Get into the visual below.

Be sure to catch the steamy new video,  and Rihanna on the road this Spring for the Anti tour with Travis Scott.

Most people don’t joke around when it comes to owing them money, but in this instance it was all fun and games!

Yesterday in the wee hours of April Fools’ Day, Rihanna teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel’s camera crew to give him a taste of his own medicine. While Jimmy was sound asleep Rih and the crew crashed into his bedroom with confetti and plenty of dolla’ bills to throw around. Dressed up in all black like a martian, the singer put on an unforgettable performance for Jimmy to her new single Bitch Better Have My Money. After Jimmy woke up and realized what was happening to him he said:

It seemed like a UFO had landed

HA!

Rihanna’s Father Speaks Out On Rih’s Relationship With Melissa And Chris Brown

spl573111_051

There aren’t too many days that go by that Rihanna isn’t attached to her bestie Melissa Forde.’s hip. The pair takes friendship to a whole new level while dressing alike and holding hands during public outings.

Despite their obvious love for one another Poppa Fenty is so not here for this bestie duo and thinks Melissa is leeching off of his daughter. During a recent interview with Daily Mail, Ronald had this to say about Melissa:

...There’s a worry in the back of my head with her friends, even some of her family.’

One thing that annoys him is some of the large entourage of so-called friends she surrounds herself with.

He recalled a shopping trip in London with Rihanna and a group of friends where he watched them all buy stuff for themselves with her money.

He said: ‘What’s the name of that place, that very expensive place, Harrods. We going in there and I just see her friends, stocking up on shoes like crazy. Parasites – whatever you want to call them – that need to go and have their own life.’

Ronald doesn’t like Rihanna’s best friend Melissa Forde who grew up with her in Barbados and seems to constantly be by her side as she travels the world.

He said:

‘If it was me she would have to go, if I had anything to do with it she would have to go.

‘She’s the one who goes shopping and everything.

‘I think Melissa should be old enough to be able to stand on her own two feet, of course come and visit her like the rest of her friends but she doesn’t need to be there all the time.

‘Monica says “but she helps Robyn pack her bags”, I said “Melissa don’t pack no bags sweetheart, I know that, so don’t give me that. I’ve been in the house. I said that’s a joke.’

In the past Ronald has expressed his love for Chris Brown while interviewing. Although Rih may have washed her hands with the relationship, Ronald has long forgiven Rihanna’s ex Chris Brown for assaulting her and openly admits he still has a big soft spot for him.

Revealing how Rihanna coldly blanked Chris when they were at a charity basketball game in August, he said: ‘I don’t know what their relationship is now. At the basketball, they just said “hi and hello”.

‘When we was going to the car park he was trying to talk with her but she turned and was talking to somebody else, so he came and talked to me and I had a picture with him. Afterwards Robyn said, “dad you really taking pictures with he though?”(sic).’

Although he has said in the past he would be happy for them to get back together, Ronald isn’t so sure now.

He said: ‘Let her do what she wants to do. This recycling thing don’t work for everything, people don’t ask me if I could go back with Ms Fenty.

‘Chris is a player, he ain’t ready for no one women yet, he ain’t ready. He’s a party guy.

‘When I see in the papers he’s in trouble, I think “Chris what the hell are you doing man?” The guy has got so much talent you know what I mean, to just screw up like that.

‘He can draw, he can do anything, man you give it to Chris he can do it great. He’s so talented.’

He said: ‘She says “dad can you believe I don’t have a man?” A beautiful woman like that don’t have a man, no I don’t believe it.

‘She needs to find the right man who’s compatible. She may be looking in the wrong direction, they don’t have to be in the entertainment business but that’s the people she’s meeting.’

On the pregnancy rumors that surfaced last week:

Shooting down the rumour, Ronald laughs: ‘No she’s not pregnant, but I want someone to start giving me grandchildren! Of course I want to be a grandfather. 

‘All my friends in their late 40s and 50s have got grandchildren, why not me?

‘She tell me she’s waiting on her sister Samantha. She’s 32 and married but has not had children yet.’

As you may or may not know, last week Rihanna held the first annual ball in honor of her late grandmother Dolly. Unfortunately Rih’s father Ronald showed up to the event drunk and had to be escorted out before the event even started. Read about it more here.

When Rihanna meets the White House…

We are so here for the slayage Rihanna was giving at the White House on Sunday. The singer gave Olivia Pope a run for her money wearing a tribal inspired dress from Stella Jean LTD’s 2014 collection. She paired the dress with a Balmain bag and a pair of classic Manolo Blahnik heels.

Who knew that Rih was a fan of Scandal? While giving life at the phone booth she used photo captions like:

“CYRUS!!! LET ME IN!!” #DayAtTheWhiteHouse

and

“Fitz, darling…”

Watch This: Drake And Rihanna Hit The Shmoney Dance

photo 2 (23)I think it’s safe to say that Bobby Shmurda’s shmoney dance has become the most popular dance of summer. A-list celebs such as Beyonce and Jay-Z has even showed off their shmoney skills. This time around on and off couple Rihanna and Drake are taking a shot at it.

Rihanna was recently vacationing on a private yacht with her bestie Melissa. The shmoney came natural to the singer as she rocked side to side in her nude bikini meanwhile taking a puff of mary jane throughout the process.

Watch it below.

On the other hand, Drizzy was recently in ATL for the Drake and Wayne Tour. While here the rapper made a stop at Velvet Room to host alongside label boss Lil Wayne.

But Why Did Drake Imply That Rihanna Is A Devil At His OVO Festival?

IMG_9517

Gather round, gather round children, muva’s got the tea!

Remember all those days where Drake and Rihanna seemed merely inseparable? It’s almost impossible to forget, especially with the song that Drake dropped during that time frame titled Days In The East. Well after four years of on and off again dating it seems like these two have finally called it quits for unknown reasons.

Although rumors have surfaced about Rih having a new man, from the looks of things Drake probably hasn’t moved on just yet. During Drake’s OVO fest that took place in Canada Monday night the rapper threw hella shade Rih’s way with fiery like images of her face and the number 6 flashing across the projector while performing his single that clearly references things that went on between him and Rih, Days In The East. The spicy images led some to believe that Drake was trying to call his ex boo a devil.

Meanwhile, Drake’s forthcoming album is titled Views From The Six so the number six could be associated with the album. But there’s really no explanation for Rihanna popping up on that fiery screen while he’s performing to a song that he clearly wrote about her. So what was Drizzy trying to insinuate about Rih?

Check out the footage below.
