Happy Birthday Ri!
Today it’s Rihanna’s birthday! Ri Ri turns 29 years old today.
Back in April of last year, LVMH Moët Hennesy Louis Vuitton has landed a deal with Rihanna, one of the hottest-selling celebrities in the world of licensing, to do a complete makeup collection.
As one veteran cosmetics executive observed, “everything with her is off the charts.”
Not only today is Rihanna birthday. The singer is launching her very own cosmetic line.In a video post online this week, she explained that it’s a very exciting project and she can’t wait to share the products with her fans: “As you guys may have heard already, I am working on creating a new beauty line Fenty Beauty. And I can’t wait for you guys to see what I’ve been working on. And I am super excited about it.”
Many folks are pissed of the obvious snub for both artists Rihanna and Beyonce at the Grammys 2017.
Solange claps back at the Grammys on social media.
Solange says, “there have been only been two black winners in the last 20 years for album of the year. there have been over 200 black artist who have performed….. create your own communities, build your own institutions, give your friends awards, award yourself, and be the gold you wanna hold my g’s.”
Solange has deleted the tweets.
Although Beyonce and Ri Ri was snubbed last night.
Grammys dominated the dial Sunday night — providing broadcast TV another destination live telecast on the heels of last week’s Super Bowl.
Compared to last year, ratings for the CBS telecast look to be close to even — shedding less than 1 percent in early returns with an average 16.0 overnight rating among Nielsen’s metered market households between 8 and 11:45 p.m. ET. The 2016 Grammys, which earned an overnight 16.1 rating, ultimately fetched 24.95 million viewers.

There are speculations Rihanna and Bruno Mars will perform a tribute to Prince at the Grammys 2017.
It’s confirm…. The 59th Grammy Awards will feature musical tributes to the late George Michael and Prince, but the Recording Academy isn’t saying up front who’ll be performing in each set.
“[W]e consider it our responsibility to tell music’s broader story by honoring its legends lost — that’s what we strive to achieve with our annual tributes,” Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the show, said in a statement.
“While it’s nearly impossible to convey the full depth of an artist’s cultural impact in a single performance, it’s that very challenge that has led us to some of our most memorable Grammy moments.”
