Rihanna Shames Reporter At ‘Battleship” Press Conference-
Everyone knows reporters sometimes like to get a easy shot in on celebs during press conferences and other interviews. Sometimes it pays off and you get a gushy exclusive and everyone envies your prowess.
This is not one of those times.
Roc Nation artist, Rihanna is not necessarily known for standing her ground with reporters but at a press conference for the upcoming film, “Battleship,” of which she is featured, Rih-Rih made her displeasure with a certain reporters question.
Showbiz 411 reports that they began by complimenting the 24-year old for being able to connect to so many different people, and then segued into an insulting and assumptive question about Rihanna’s rumored relationship with Ashton Kutcher.
“Wow, how disappointing was that question,” Rihanna said frankly, prompting the host to move on. But before it was over Ms. Fenty set the record straight. “I’m happy and I’m single if that’s what you’re really asking,” she said before moving forward (and rolling her eyes!)
The lesson here, as per usual in Hollywood Land: Tact is everything!
Wiz Khalifa Buys 900K Home in ‘Burgh Suburb-
We hear about rappers buying houses all the time. As a matter of fact, Drizzy Drake just dropped a cool nine million on a manson in California’s Hidden Hills. Wiz Khalifa went a more economical route, or maybe he’s just trying to be sentimental.
The Pennsylvania native is moving back home; TMZ just announced that Khalifa has just bought a $900K home in a Pittsburgh suburb. The 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom, all new abode is only 25 miles away from Wiz’s old school and comes complete with a decked out patio.
Could this mean that Young Khalifa is packing it in with the wifey, Amber Rose?
First comes love, then comes marriage…
David Guetta Releases NBtB Documentary on iTunes-
Music is such an important part of our lives and culture. It has become a fascinating practice to document how our favorite artists make the music we love, and French import, David Guetta is the latest to join in on the all access pass to his life’s work.
The “Turn Me On” DJ released a documentary all about his life, making the album, and the rise of popularity in dance music. It includes interviews from Guetta as well as his peers. The doc, which shares the title of his Grammy-nominated album, Nothing But the Beat, is available on iTunes now.
Guetta wanted us to understand why he felt this movie was important to him and should be to us. In a press statement via PopCrush he writes:
“What’s happened to dance music recently is unbelievable. I’ve been a DJ for 20 years and ‘Nothing But The Beat’ tells a part of the story through my eyes. But not just mine; my peers, those DJs who inspired me and my collaborators too. It shows how far we have all come and I hope will inspire all those new DJs, producers, and everyone to follow their passion. I wanted to give something back to those who have supported me and show people new to the scene and sound some of our history.”
Make sure you grab that on iTunes, if you are interested. And for the true EDM fans, Guetta sweetens the deal by including some instrumentals on the bonus edition of the album.
Talk about Turn Me On…
