Rihanna Turns Head With Booty-Revealing Bodysuit

06 July 2010 - Rihanna obviously has no problem in revealing part of her body when performing in front of a crowd. When taking the stage on July 4 at GM Place in Vancouver, Canada for one of the concerts in her "Last Girl on Earth" tour, the red-haired Bajan beauty wore a sexy black PVC bodysuit which barely covers her rear end. Earlier this year, the girlfriend of Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp has admitted she loved being sexy with an edge.

"My stylist Mariel Haenn and I always try to do something sexy, but never too girly," she told W magazine. "We always try to put a little toughness in there."
 Rihanna still has strenuous tour schedule in July and August. Nonetheless, she has been reported to possibly record a collaboration with hip-hop diva Lil' Kim
Exposing the possibility was Kim herself as telling Lifelounge magazine, "I'm a huge [Rihanna] fan and she's a friend of mine, so I'm almost guessing - if I had to guess - I'm 90 percent sure that a song is probably in the works."


RIHANNA embraced her inner Guitar Hero in the final leg of her Last Girl On Earth Tour.

The singer, 22, thrashed out the strings on stage in Vancouver while pulling her best Keith Richards impersonation during Rockstar 101.

Earlier this year I revealed Rihanna’s plans to rock harder than any other R&B star by teaming up with Extreme guitarist Nuni Bettencourt, 43. You rock, lady.

Living in Rihanna’s world

“This is a dream... Welcome to Rihanna's world.”

The words appear on a giant screen that shows the songstress asleep in an electric blue space capsule as Mad House plays behind. The screen recedes and, wearing a floor-length, surprisingly demure black ball gown, Rihanna appears on a raised platform singing Russian Roulette. She cocks her finger, points at the audience and shoots.

The last time the Barbadian singer played GM Place, she was supporting Kanye West, high on the breezy pop success of Umbrella and Don’t stop the Music. Two years later, there’s a darker edge to the music – the 2009 album Rated R was recorded following the very public blow up of her relationship with Chris Brown – and there’s nothing soft about this new show.
Jack-booted dancers carry pink machineguns, while a hot-pink tank sits to one side of the stage.

As the back projection goes into overdrive with militaristic imagery, Rihanna strips down to a pair of high-cut pale pink panties and a revealing matching jacket with oversized epaulettes – and straddles the tank’s gun.

Bang! It goes off.

RIHANNA loves to relax!

The Te Amo singer — who’s currently in the middle of her Last Girl On Earth tour — says she can’t wait to lock her doors and slob out when she gets home from being on the road.

“I love it when I get those days where I don’t have a specific time to get out of bed,” she says.

“On those days where I don’t have anything to do I just lay in bed and watch TV all day. It is heaven! A day of Family Guy and comedy. Great!”

Rihanna recently revealed that she “definitely” wants to launch a movie career.
“Movies are definitely something that I want to get into soon,” she said last month. “And although it may surprise people my ideal role would be a comic role.

“I love comedy and I am pretty much a prankster, so that is a whole new world that I would love to venture off into.”

Rihanna offers up brash performance at GM Place

VANCOUVER - Ke$ha might have dropped a dollar sign into her given name, but Sunday night it was headliner Rihanna who was — as Vince Vaughn's character in Swingers might say — so money.

Still, pop upstart Ke$ha's probably making buckets of it, given the success of Tik Tok, the first single off her debut album, Animal, released earlier this year.

Emerging onstage from the middle of a collection of vertical LED banks and strapped with a guitar modified to resemble a machine gun — which she "played" for a couple of minutes — it seems that Ke$sha is trying to send us a message: she is a naughty, naughty girl.
But don't let Ke$ha's Clockwork Orange-inspired eye makeup fool you: there's nothing deviant about her vapid party girl lyrics, though she clearly has a knack for writing infectiously catchy tunes, the kind designed to get lodged in the back of your brain for obnoxious stretches of time.

Take her delightful ditty Dinosaur: "Old man why are you staring at me/Mac on me and my friends, it's kind of creepy/You should be prowling around the old folks' home/Come on dude, leave us alone..."

Rihanna doesn’t disappoint

There’s no denying Rihanna has star quality.

Whether souped-up bubblegum pop is your thing or not, it’s hard not to be impressed by the Barbadian singer’s dazzling, big-budget live show, which burst into town Tuesday night.

A crowd of about 12,000 mostly high-pitched teenage girls took in Rihanna’s Last Girl On Earth tour at the Saddledome. And seeing as the decibels remained high throughout the 90-minute concert, it seems very few went away disappointed.

Why would they? Rihanna gave them everything they’ve come to expect from a chart-topping superstar — hit singles, sexy dance routines, laser-light show, slick set design and costumes that wouldn’t look out of place in Lady Gaga’s closet.

The 22-year-old appeared quite dramatically — and rather elegantly — on a pedestal which glided forward from the back of the stage. Wearing a flowing black dress covered red lights, Rihanna was greeted with Bieber-like hysteria by her adoring fans.

The din grew even louder when she removed her first outfit to reveal a much skimpier costume for the second song of the night, Hard.
Rihanna then straddled a bright pink army tank that matched her dancers’ bright pink machine guns. As far as concert themes and imagery goes, this one was pretty weak and perhaps a tad insulting to those who have actually served in the army.

One lucky fan got the thrill of her young life when RiRi grabbed her out of the crowd, gave her a bat and let her go wild on a beater car that appeared on stage for Shut Up and Drive.

Rihanna’s goth side came out — and by ‘goth side’ I mean she sang alongside dancers dressed as freaky, giant spiders — during the darker dancefloor anthem, Disturbia.

Rihanna Urges Fans To Leave Abusive Relationships

Rihanna has urged young fans in abusive relationships to have the strength to walk away.The Umbrella singer – who was the victim of a vicious assault at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009 – said it is never easy to leave an abusive relationship.

And asked if she had any advice for people going through the same experience, she said: "I hope to help them have the strength to [get out of a bad relationship] because it definitely takes a lot of inner strength.
"You're never prepared for the day that you have to get out of that relationship… But you know it's the right thing to do.”Talking about her own experience with Brown, she said: "It was a very rough time."It was a big turning point in my life to move forward and all I had to do was be independent enough to take that step forward."

Rihanna shows her mean streak

July 7, 2010
Rihanna and Ke$ha performed Tuesday at Pengrowth Saddledome. Attendance 12,000.

A bleeding heart on the big screen, being squeezed in a clenched fist with painted black nails, talon-like.

That was but one image flashed Tuesday night at the Saddledome as Barbadian R&B sensation Rihanna sang her opening song, Russian Roulette, on an elevated platform.

It was the first of many dramatic, angry images seen throughout her concert.
During the aggressive, electronic R&B of Hard, a troupe of backup dancers sported glowing pink rifles. At the song's conclusion, Rihanna straddled a similarly coloured cannon.

For the pounding pop of Shut Up and Drive, she climbed up on the wreckage of a car while a guy dressed as a crash test dummy breakdanced in the background. For the tune's finale, other dancers took baseball bats to the vehicle.

This was a darker and tougher Rihanna than the pop sexpot in pretty dresses who we've come to know over the years.

The sexy factor was still present, to be sure. During Rude Boy, Rihanna was wore a black S&Mstyle getup that accentuated every curve. The difference is, the 22-year-old's image has taken on a real edge.

Of course, the radical shift has occurred in the last year following Rihanna's violent, highly publicized breakup with her former boyfriend, R&B star Chris Brown. Brown was charged with assault after an altercation between the two on the eve of the 2009 Grammys.

Rihanna's latest album, Rated R, reflects her harsh new reality and the same is true of her Last Girl On Earth Tour.

Rihanna sets Penticton on fire

July 07, 2010
Anyone who says the SOEC is a quiet building, obviously hasn’t been to a Rihanna concert.

And, no, it wasn’t the 16 big rigs that lugged her gear from a show in Vancouver the night before rumbling. It has everything to do with Rihanna’s new edge, a grittier, harder version of the teen girl who came out with her debut hit single Pon de Replay in 2005. This transformed Rihanna, belting out tracks from her fourth studio album (Rated R) is, well, a good girl gone bad. Obvious from her barely-there outfits as she put chutzpah behind her hip thrusts, crotch grabs and slinky moves. It was only fitting her Last Girl on Earth tour on Monday in Penticton opened with a dreamy sequence and Welcome to the Madhouse playing.
Called “an animal,” by one male fan intoxicated by Rihanna as she pranced by in thigh-high black boots and switched costumes fulfilling the eye-candy portion for most of the male gender in the packed SOEC, the artist didn’t leave her female fans wanting more either. Rihanna opened wearing a prudish black floor length gown, flashing with red LED lights as she pounded her chest singing the heartfelt Russian Roulette. Rihanna was lifted high on a pedestal above the crowd as one teen girl ecstatically yelled out “Oh my god, Oh my god, I think I might cry.” After shedding her lengthy gown for an eye-popping pink one piece that left little to the imagination she hit her fans with Hard — complete with dancers carrying hot pink guns and a neon tank, which she straddled as it popped off.

Rihanna: Lil' Kim Collaboration?

Rihanna slips into a black PVC bodysuit with sexy cut-outs as she launches the North American leg of her Last Girl On Earth concert tour at GM Place on Sunday (July 4) in Vancouver, Canada.

The 22-year-old “Rockstar 101″ singer reportedly has a collaboration in the works with rapper Lil’ Kim.

“I’m a huge Rihanna fan,” she told Aussie’s Lifelounge. “And she’s a friend of mine, so if I had to guess, I’m 90% sure that song is probably in the works.
Lil’ Kim continues, “I look at it this way: if it happens, it happens. And it should be a surprise. It shouldn’t be something that people are anticipating, or have their own personal opinions on it before it even comes out.

Berdych ends Novak’s run at Wimbledon!

  Third-seeded Novak Djokovic failed in attempt to reach his third career Grand Slam final and first at Wimbledon. No.12 seed Czech Tomas Berdych defeated him in straight sets 6-3, 7-6 (9), 6-3 in 2 hours and 18 minutes.
  Novak pushed Berdych to deuce in the fifth game of the opening set, but the Czech rescued the situation by throwing down an ace before a second ace saw him hold. We saw the first break of the match in the sixth game when Djokovic handed two break points to Berdych with a few groundstroke errors. The Serb hit the net with a forehand and the Czech player wrapped up the set 6-3 in 33 minutes.
  Nole faced three break points in eleventh game of the second set. He saved one, but missed an overhead smash with a shot miss that flied long. Berdych was serving for the set when Nole fought back using his third chance to level to 6-6, and the set went to a tie-breaker. A double fault by Djokovic brought up four set points for the Czech at 6-2, but the Serb saved all four and earned himself a set point winning fifth point in a row for 7-6. Novak had one more chance to level the match, but Berdych saved it with a big serve before a double fault from Djokovic saw him take the set 11-9 for a 2-0 lead.
  A double fault from the 23-year-old Belgrade native in the eighth game of the third set brought up break point for Berdych and another double fault followed it. Suddenly Berdych was serving for a place in the Wimbledon final. The Czech closed the set and match 6-3.
" I want to congratulate him," said Novak. " He played a great match and a great tournament. He's just a better player today on the court. "
