Rihanna on Scandal

Friday, August 21, 2009

Rihanna has become the latest star caught up in a nude-photo scandal after salacious snapshots allegedly featuring the singer were posted online on Friday.

Rihanna’s face can clearly be seen in shots that show the "Umbrella" singer stripping provocatively for the camera, but other photos show only segments of a woman's naked body.

The most incriminating full-length shot appears to feature the sexy star partially clothed taking a photograph of herself in the mirror of a large hotel suite bathroom. The messages 'I love you' and 'I miss you' are written on the mirror.

The girl in the photo definitely looks like Rihanna, but the subject's face is covered by a BlackBerry phone camera.

The seven pictures led to Web sites like Imagehaven.net almost crashing as fans stormed the Internet looking for the scandalous photos, which reports suggest were taken at the London hotel in West Hollywood, where Rihanna once stayed with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

The new photos come just days after Rihanna made her first public appearance following an alleged fight with Brown in Los Angeles on the eve of the Grammy Awards in February.

The R&B star performed briefly alongside Kanye West at the Costume Institute Gala in New York on Monday.

Brown still faces jail time if he's found guilty of allegedly beating his then-girlfriend and threatening to kill her during the fight.


Kanye West Takes Twitter To Task For Fake Celeb Accounts

For them to allow someone to pose as me ... is deceitful to their faithful users,' West wrote in a blog post.

Given his penchant for blogging, it's surprising to find out that Kanye West thinks Twitter is a waste of time. He even sounded off Tuesday (on his blog, of course), saying the company should put the kibosh on those impersonating the rapper.

"This spaz comes courtesy of losers making fake Kanye West Twitter accounts," he wrote before launching into an all-caps, stream-of-consciousness tantrum.

"I don't have a f---ing Twitter," he continued. "Why would I use Twitter??? I only blog 5 percent of what I'm up to in the first place. I'm actually slow delivering content because I'm too busy being creative most of the time and if I'm not and I'm just laying on a beach I wouldn't tell the world. Everything that Twitter offers I need less of."

The rant keeps going: "The people at Twitter know I don't have a f---ing Twitter so for them to allow someone to pose as me and accumulate over a million names is irresponsible and deceitful to their faithful users."

In case we didn't understand the first time, West goes on: "Repeat. The heads of Twitter knew I didn't have a Twitter and they have to know which accounts have high activity on them. It's a f---ing farce and it makes me question [if] other so-called celebrity Twitters are actually real or fake."

Kanye then demands that the company remove the Kanye imposters. Why? "Because my caps lock key is loud!!!!!!!!!" he wrote.

As of press time, Twitter seems to have gotten the message, because accounts like "kanyewest" have been suspended. However, users such as "WestKanye" and "MrKanyeWest" continue to operate.


Lindsay Lohan's House Burglarized -- But Mess Was Hers, Not Robbers'

Police rep on actress' messy home: 'Is it normally like this, or did the intruders do it?'

When an alarm was tripped at Lindsay Lohans home near Los Angeles on Tuesday, police initially thought that someone had broken in. The actress' home appeared to have been ransacked.

But The Associated Press reports that after investigating the alleged break-in, the police realized that the mess wasn't made by burglars but rather the actress herself.

According to the AP, police were notified by Lohan's security company that someone tripped an alarm at the house in Hollywood around 3 p.m. When police arrived they determined that nothing had been stolen. Los Angeles police Officer Karen Rayner said the messy state of the house prompted officers to ask, "Is it normally like this, or did the intruders do it?"

"It was an attempted burglary. No property was taken and no one was home at the time of the incident," Rayner added, according to E! Online. An unnamed source told the site that a man who is said to have been stalking and making threats against the actress is a "person of interest" in the case and that the intruder apparently used a knife to break in.

On Wednesday (May 13), Lohan was spotted in France with her sister, Ali. The pair were seen dancing and hanging out on the balcony of their Paris hotel room, while a PETA protest was held on the street below, according to Web site Celebrity Gossip.

The "Mean Girls" star has made multiple tabloid headlines this year between breaking up with DJ Samantha Ronson, begging for more acting work and allegedly getting snubbed by Seth Rogen, a claim the actor denies. Lohan's latest movie, "Labor Pains," will premiere this summer on ABC Family.


Olivia Wilde Named Maxim's Hottest Woman

Megan Fox, Rihanna, Bar Rafaeli and Malin Akerman also top 2009's Hot 100 list.On

Tuesday, a partial list of Maxim's Hot 100 list was released, revealing that the lad mag's editors are honoring such fine women as Angelina Jolie, Nicole Scherzinger and a handful of "Hills" and "Twilight" stars. The magazine's top 10 were announced on Monday, along with the surprising news that "Year One" co-star Olivia Wilde was named top babe for 2009.

Rounding out the top 10 is "Ghost Whisperer" star Jennifer Love-Hewitt, who has held her sex-symbol status since her turns in "Can't Hardly Wait" and "I Know What You Did last Summer." "Fast and Furious" star Jordana Brewster made the list at #9.

Rihanna, who has faced her fair share of controversy this year, graces the list at #8. Supermodel Adriana Lima comes in at #7, preceded by "Dollhouse" star Eliza Dushku (#6) and "That '70s" alum Mila Kunis (#5). "Watchmen" superheroine Malin Akerman, Leonardo DiCaprio's leading lady and supermodel Bar Rafaeli, and "Transformers" ├╝berbabe Megan Fox round out the top five.

Wilde is most recently known for her role as a terminally ill internist on "House." "But we were drooling over this NYC native long before she was injected into Fox's hit medical drama," the Maxim feature says, reminding readers how she made temperatures rise with her stint on the short-lived "The Black Donnellys" and as Mischa Barton's girlfriend on "The O.C."

Although many men out there aren't disagreeing with Wilde's #1 status, there's one guy demanding a recount. "I'm gonna go to this Maxim party and have a serious conversation," Spencer Pratt told MTV News when he found out that wife Heidi came in at a disappointing #81. "I'm still horrified she's not even at #2."

As for the news that Lauren Conrad didn't make the list, well, that didn't surprise Pratt at all. "She's not on the list," he said. "She wouldn't even be on my radar."


# Twilight’s Robert Pattinson Doesn’t Like Topless Scenes

Robert Pattinson

You know how excited we all are to see a topless Robert Pattinson in the upcoming New Moon movie? Well, Pattinson didn’t exactly love filming those scenes. But we’re so glad he did!

Robert Pattinson would rather keep his shirt on while filming the Twilight movies. According to him, “I was so uncomfortable doing it. It really is so embarrassing.” What? How can someone as hot as Robert Pattinson be embarrassed when he takes his shirt off?

OK, we get it; no matter how good looking you are, it must be strange to have people go crazy every time your shirt comes off. But Pattinson should be proud of what he’s got!

From the teaser trailer we have already seens, we know Kristen Stewart has a plenty of scenes with a topless Taylor Lautner in New Moon, and we are hoping Robert Pattinson has a few too. From what we already know of the story, it’s probably only the one scene (check out the pics of them filiming it!), but maybe the screenwriter threw a couple more in for us fans.

We wonder how Taylor Lautner felt about being topless throughout the movie. Seems like he is shirtless for most of it!
