Yesterday was the launch of a new Jay Z-backed music streaming service, Tidal. It started with a social media takeover (which I’ll get to) and then a press conference. An awkward as hell press conference; I got the sweats watching it. Why was the crowd hollering, who did they invite to this thing? Was it fans, or media? The audible dip in applause between Kanye and Deadmau5 was painful. Full Story

So there’s the Taylor Swift way of doing things, which is to sit in the audience the whole time because they pretty much told her she was going to win everything. With as many friends as possible. And then there’s the Rihanna way of doing things. Which is to not sit in the audience. And show up to perform. Full Story
Bitch Better Have My Money.
That’s all I’ve been listening to in the car. At my desk. I haven’t taken Rihanna to the gym yet but I can’t wait to break the treadmill with this song on repeat. It’s that kind of song. Makes me want to screw up my face, get up in someone else’s face, pick a fight. Go to Indiana and ask that old Pence guy …

Rihanna doesn’t do a lot of interviews. She’s done some major interviews, sure. But you know she’s selective. And you know we don’t actually hear her speak at length very often. She’s promoting an animated film called Home though. So there are some press commitments. One of those was showing up on Good Morning America today with co-stars Steve Martin and Jim Parsons.

Deadline is reporting that Peter Berg will direct an upcoming feature documentary on Rihanna. They know each other from Battleship, and we know Peter from Friday Night Lights (and more). Friday Night Rihanna, oh my God. Rihanna, for me, is the pop star of her generation but she also embodies a certain free-spiritedness that is extremely rare in today’s celebrity landscape. Full Story

I spent some time yesterday thinking about the Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio situation while hopped up on painkillers. I’m telling you, it was a mental workout. I got a lot done in my mind.

And, yes, one of the few who, at just 26 years old, can actually be called a legitimate fashion icon. So this shoot… with all the gold and the disco vibes but keeping the face neutral and warm? All over it. Full Story
