Vin Diesel also covered Rihanna …

Vin Diesel

We've already had a great cover of Rihanna today, so here on the other side of the scale is actor Vin Diesel, performing RiRi's latest single "Stay" for Valentine's Day. Once again: Vin Diesel singing a Rihanna song. This is what happens when he's not working on a Fast & Furious movie. MORE

Jessie Ware covers Rihanna’s “Diamonds”

Jessie Ware

Just because I'm absolutely in love with her music, here's Jessie Ware covering Rihanna's hit song "Diamonds" (written by Sia) for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. It's a more stripped down version of the original, but I think it works a little bit better because of it. MORE

Rihanna gets naked in a tub for the “Stay” video

Rihanna "Stay"

So here's Rihanna's new music video for "Stay," (with Mikky Ekko) featuring her starkers in the bathtub, and it really is a testament to the internet's obsession with celebrity boobs that Rihanna is naked in public every other day of the week, and yet this still qualifies as news. There is no such thing as the point of diminishing returns when it comes to Rihanna's boobs. MORE

Chris Brown showed up to court with Rihanna

Chris Brown and Rihanna

Yesterday, Chris Brown showed up to court over the tiny little matter that he may or may not have faked his community service. Despite some pretty overwhelming evidence and testimony that he and his mom faked a pretty decent chunk of his community service, as well as a laundry list of high-profile temper tantrums, Chris decided to show up to court with Rihanna, aka the woman he nearly beat to death and left for dead. Because if he were really MORE

Justin Bieber and Rihanna hooked up? What?!

Rihanna and Justin Bieber

Look, we run a lot of crazy stories on this blog -- Courtney Stodden is a relevant human being? HAHA! No part of that statement could possibly be true! -- but I think we've finally found the most impossible story: Justin Bieber and Rihanna apparently hooked up while he was dating Selena Gomez. I know. I KNOW. Via MORE

Rihanna on Chris Brown: It’s different now!

Rihanna / Rolling Stone

You know, we've gone pretty hard on Rihanna over the fact that she started dating Chris Brown again, mostly because he physically abused her and seriously, he physically abused her. When you're in the public eye and you end up going back to the guy who beat you and left you for dead, you're kinda implicitly stating that it's okay to be physically abusive as long as you can get away with it. Anyway, here's Rihanna talking about how she's dating MORE

Is Chris Brown already cheating on Rihanna?

Rihanna, Sommer Gargan and Chris Brown

Since Chris Brown started dating Rihanna again (Ugh. Ugh. A thousand times UGH!) he's already been spotted with his ex-girlfriend Karreuche Tran, and seriously, how do so many find this violent, girlfriend-beating douche irresistible? Does he poop Pinterest crafts? Whatever. Point is, Hollywood Life reports that he's been spotted with a third girl now named Sommer Gargan. Who would have known Chris would be such a terrible MORE

PopBytes’ Top Ten Favorite Albums of 2012!

Marina and the Diamonds - Electra Heart

Without any intro or further ado, I finally present to you my top ten favorite albums of 2012! Marina and the Diamonds Electra Heart It certainly hasn't been a secret that Marina and the Diamonds would once again land on the top of my list. Her stunning debut album, The Family Jewels, topped my list back in 2010. Although I probably still prefer Jewels over Electra Heart, her sophomore effort comes in right behind it! Every track on the MORE

Ugh: Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together

Rihanna and Chris Brown

How bad is Rihanna at decision making? Let me put it this way: If you gave her a multiple choice question of what her own name was, and gave her a choice between Rihanna, and then three blank answers, Rihanna would choose one of the blank answers before trying to fire a bottle rocket out of her nose because the dumbass is a dumbass. So of course, Chris Brown and RiRi made their first public appearance together yesterday since that time Chris MORE

Rihanna and Chris Brown are fighting already

Rihanna and Chris Brown

You would expect that Rihanna's reunion with the man who viciously beat her and left her for dead would be going better for her, except as HuffPo reports, Chris Brown and Rihanna are already fighting again after Chris was spotted partying with his ex(?)-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. Here's a thought girl: maybe don't get back together with the guy who abused you. DON'T. DO. THAT. EVER. Rihanna and Chris Brown's relationship may have been on the MORE

Sia covers Rihanna’s “Diamonds”

Sia

When I first heard Rihanna's number one song "Diamonds," I couldn't help but feel like it had certain vocal flourishes reminiscent of Sia. (Specifically, the hiccuping "Shine bright like a diamond.") Turns out, I was right about that part: the song was originally written by Sia, who's fast becoming one of the most reliably proficient singer/songwriters out there. So here she is covering "Diamonds" for herself, and to be honest, I think she MORE

Rihanna: I didn’t go crazy, I didn’t party too hard

Rihanna

You'll probably remember a little while back when Rihanna brought a whole bunch of reporters with her on her 777 Tour, only for it to turn into Lord of the Flies, plus or minus a pig's severed head. Well, Rihanna has decided to clear the air, sort of, by telling everyone that she's not crazy! She just, you know, filled a plane with people and subjected them to a never ending hellscape of airline code and conduct. Via HuffPo ... "It was MORE

Twitter Feud: Chris Brown vs. Jenny Johnson

Chris Brown vs. Jenny Johnson

If you don't know who Jenny Johnson is, it's probably only because you've never been on Twitter. Jenny is one of the single funniest people on Twitter, and has made a name for herself for calling out terrible, morally-devoid celebrities for being terrible and morally-devoid. Anyway, Chris Brown has been a good target for her, since he's virulently misogynistic, homophobic, and violent in general. Last night, the two of them got into it on MORE

Rihanna’s 777 Tour is slowly going insane

Rihanna

If you haven't heard by now, Rihanna decided to rent a plane, and fly all over the world, doing seven concerts in seven countries in seven continents to promote her latest studio album Unapologetic (available now on iTunes), and she decided to bring the press along with her. Normally, getting to spend a week globe trotting with Rihanna would be fun, but then you'd be forgetting that you're essentially at the mercy of airlines. Yeah, remember how MORE
