The 'Diamonds' singer has opened up about how she felt following Chris Brown's assault and how they have mended their friendship.
The stand-up comic said he 'forgot how to formulate proper sentences' when meeting the Umbrella singer.
In the clip, she says her name 'Ree-Anna' rather than 'Ree-Ah-Na', which is mostly the American pronounciation.
Rihanna has revealed that she’s officially a Londoner after moving from the US to the UK earlier this year. The popstar made the move to be closer to the Fenty team in France and Italy.
Open up your wallets because Rihanna is here to collect your coins, people! The queen of Barbados is slowly creeping in on every aspect of life and it's near impossible to find someone who is mad about it.

A post shared by badgalriri (@badgalriri) on Apr 20, 2018 at 10:23am PDT While Rihanna has been teasing the line all week, there is no official release date for the collection, which has been dubbed SAVAGE X FENTY. That hasn't stopped people from freaking out on Twitter about the announcement. As always, there are also some folks who are not here for it at all and would rather just get a follow-up to <em>Anti. </em> i cannot wait to wear fenty lingerie under my fenty clothing with my fenty shoes and fenty beauty and live in a fenty apartment complex where i pay for fenty electricity and drink fenty water and struggle to keep money in my bank of fenty account — ariel lebeau (@ariellebeau) March 6, 2018 I’m thinking X was rihanna new song or some but it’s her lingerie line pic.twitter.com/qlCY8A00xP — Tay (@ohdatstay) April 20, 2018 damn Rihanna is coming out with a lingerie line.... she can take all my money tbh — carolina!!

Last week it was reported that Rihanna is launching a Fenty lingerie line. This means you can now fully dress yourself to the nines in Rihanna-designed apparel, from makeup to socks. We are just a few tiny business ventures and celebrity endorsements away from being able to live a fully-branded Rihanna lifestyle, and I am here for it.

Every morning I would wake up at 10 a.m. (because Rihanna would no doubt outlaw work before 11) and drink a hot cup of joe from my Fenty-issued coffee beans that were harvested in Fentopia by unionized Fenty employees. I would stare straight into the sun just to get myself admitted to a Fenty Hospital where the nurses' uniforms would probably be decorated with silk and Swarovski crystals. While most of Twitter is happy to obsess over Rih-leases that can’t be leaked online, a few fans are still hoping Rihanna will remember she was once a recording artist. we got fenty beauty, fenty socks, fenty shoes, fenty perfume, fenty clothes but where's the fenty music???? where is it robyn? pic.twitter.com/tCakbZKyOZ — ezra miller's whore (@gIossyfenty) March 7, 2018 To be fair, it does feel as if Rihanna will release every sort of product line possible before recording new music. Yet, Rihanna has always been known first and foremost for her bad-gal style. She mastered control of her personal brand before most artists grasped how to walk the line between engaging fans with authenticity while reserving a personal life. Rihanna's the girl whose Instagram alternates between celebratory memes and candid photos of her leaving restaurants whilst holding a glass of wine. She has an Oprah-ish aura that makes us feel as if we <em>need</em> her in our lives. I can’t wait until Fenty become a massive conglomerate and we live in a Rihannocracy. — Rumpelsimpskin (@DavidEatsViagra) September 25, 2017 I would go so far as to give up net neutrality if it meant I could surf the Fenty web and post two-dozen photos of my new cat from the Fenty adoption center on Fentybook. And I would sleep perfectly fine at night with that decision, resting my head on my Fenty sheets in my Fenty bed dreaming Fenty-led dreams. Cheers to the future, fellow citizens of Fentopia.

Snapchat came under fire earlier this week after an ad appeared on the app asking whether or not users would want to "slap Rihanna" or "punch Chris Brown," referencing the night Brown assaulted Rihanna in 2009.
A disturbing advertisement slipped through the Snapchat review process, despite the ad's flippant reference to violence against women, and to Chris Brown's infamous domestic assault against his then-girlfriend Rihanna. SEE ALSO: Sorry haters, Evan Spiegel is not sorry about Snapchat's redesign Screenshots of the advertisement for a "Would You Rather!" game appeared on Twitter over the weekend and into Monday. The image asks users whether they'd "Slap Rihanna" or "Punch Chris Brown," an obvious reference to the 2009 assault. The ad caught the eye of activist Brittany Packnett and, through her, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton. She called the ad, "just awful." @Snapchat This was one of the ads on Snapchat. What. The. Fuck.How dare y'all disrespect @rihanna like this.

Like what were they thinking with this? pic.twitter.com/7kP9RHcgNG — Royce Mann (@TheRoyceMann) March 12, 2018 I know that social media ads go through an approval process from the platform.This means @Snapchat approved an ad that makes light of domestic violence.The update ain’t the only thing that’s wack over there, friends. https://t.co/PmbJn4zCel — Brittany Packnett (@MsPackyetti) March 12, 2018 Just awful. Awful that anyone thinks this is funny. Awful that anyone thinks this is appropriate. Awful that any company would approve this. Thank you Brittany for calling this out. — Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) March 12, 2018 As Packnett notes, advertisements are reviewed by the team over at Snap. Per the company's official advertising policies: The page also details an extensive list of "Prohibited Content," including, "Content that demeans, degrades, or shows hate toward a particular race, gender, culture, country, belief, or toward any member of a protected class." A spokesperson from Snap tells Mashable <em>: </em>"The ad was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines. We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware. We are sorry that this happened." WATCH: Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon speak out about sexual harassment in Hollywood
For anyone who is not a fashionista, New York Fashion Week can look very dull - but Rihanna is here to change that. The pop star took New York by storm, riding high on the back of a motorbike as she arrived on a stage purposely built with pinks mountains for models and bikers to make their way. Rihanna has been marketing her brand as "beauty for everyone: for women of all shades, personalities, attitudes, cultures and races".
Beyoncé is the latest star to show a solid act of kindness and has decided to celebrate the one year anniversary of her hit visual album ‘Lemonade’ by offering US college scholarships to four lucky students.

Beyonce sings two songs off her 2016 album Lemonade, “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles,” in what was her first public appearance since announcing that she was pregnant with twins.

Karrueche Tran has reportedly been granted a restraining order against ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. TMZ reports that Karrueche, who split from the rapper two years ago, alleges in the documents that Chris had previously threatened to harm her, and recently threw a drink at one of her friends.
Stars from Perez Hilton to Ryan Reynolds have all had their parenting skills criticised after they’ve posted photos of themselves with their children on Instagram, and even Katie Piper came under fire for allowing her daughter to have a toy doll with realistic private parts. Now Rihanna is the latest celeb to find herself under the scrutiny of millions of Instagram users, with the singer being criticised for sharing a photo of herself sharing a tender moment with her toddler niece, Majesty. In the photo, Majesty is nude in the bath and planting a big kiss on her Auntie Riri’s lips, with Rihanna also appearing to be fully nude.
