Rihanna Hosts Exquisite Book Party for Visual Autobiography

Yassssssss bihhhh!! Rihanna Navy is sipping champagne tonight in celebration of her 500-page book.

On Friday, Rihanna shut down New York’s Guggenheim Museum for a star studded book party- a 504 page photo album of herself, or what she calls a “visual autobiography”- featuring over a thousand photos taken of her throughout her successful career, largely in the past decade of her career. Many of the photos are being made public for the first time ever, to top it off, the book would come in three limited editions with very Rihanna-worthy names: “This Shit Is Heavy,” “Drippy + the Brain” and “Stoner”.

From her fairly new record label Roc Nation, her book publisher Phaidon, Fenty, her skin care and fashion brand Fenty, and a plethora of brand partnerships….sis is super busy and living her best life.

The guests on Friday showed up in all black in the Guggenheim lobby, being offered champagne by none other than her champagne line, with each bottling retailing about $300. Additionally, guests chowed down on fried macaroni canapes for 30 minutes before the official start time of the event. Armand de Brignac, RiRi’s brand manager, who was present at the party said that the bar budget alone easily numbered six figures.

Everyone who attended the party walked away with a standard edition copy of Rihanna.

Along with thanking her creative team, business partners and other collaborators -including her childhood friend and “bestie” Melissa Forde, who got the loudest cheer of the night from fans – Rihanna paid special homage to the venue she’d chosen. “I want to thank the Guggenheim not only for having us here, but to share this peice of art, she said of her book, “and have it be among the art that has been at the Guggenheim since 1959.”

For an event as iconic as Rihanna strolling through the Guggenheim, and looking at photos of her, it’s a reminder of just how far her business efforts have carried her beyond the Music of the Sun album, her very first 2 million sold worldwide album. We see you bossin Rihanna. #respect.

Comment Creepin on Yung Jocs Instagram

As we all know, Yung Joc is not afraid to tap into his creative fashion especially when it comes to hairstyling. Earlier this year, he pulled out the stops when he dyed his hair blue and had it cut into a short Bob style.

A free weeks ago he repped one of his favorite rappers of all time, the late great 2Pac by a very unique hair design he displayed on his Instagram.

Yesterday, he posted a picture with the green hair in what looked to be a braid out style. Hiddenagenda was comment Creepin….check it out .👀👀👀👀

Yung Joc responds, ‘you’d be dead’.

Someone else says, ‘Gay ass nigga’. Yung Joc responds, ya bitch Luh me tho’.

Kim Kardashian’s New Mission

KKW Beauty creator has won the applause of her fans, as well as folks all over the globe. Kim K funded a prison reform initiative recently and is making some big moves to get people who have been handed harsh sentencing reduced and/or released.

Because of this initiative, on Wednesday,February 27 a woman was released. She was arrested in 2014 trying to transport a half-pound of meth and some other heavy narcotics. The conviction used to carry a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison. But fortunately, the First Step Act changed that for this reformed convicted felon, giving judges more discretion when sentencing,while boosting prisoner rehab initiatives.

One follower replid to the tweet with “Hmmm Kimmie it seems your following in your fathers footsteps!!! He’s looking down proud!! Who’d have thunk?”

Happy 3 year #ANTIversary

OooeeeMGeeee! I cannot believe it has been three years since I cut out a bad, self-sabotaging habit. And I owe a lot of my achievement to Rihanna’s ANTI album (2016). You might think I’m crazy, but  when I tell you!  Baby!! ‘No More Mistakes’ was my absolute fave and really got me through some tough situations at that time in my life. But don’t get it twisted, cause when she said in Woo “I’mma fuck it up wont you show me some –Run it back like you owe me something”. Chile I felt that. Rihanna came for the jugular with ANTI, she left no one alive in this savage camp album.  In James Joint, she asks  “How you live and love like fuck you”, giving facts how our signifant others can be stubborn. Especially when she said in Kiss It Better ” It hurts inside when I look you in your eye”…”What are you willing to do”? Yess Rihanna came through with the realness of dealing with toxic and narcissistic traits. But not just acknowledging them, kickin them in the ass and taking no prisoners! Rihanna always comes through with the confidence and inspiration. 

Listennnn….it was so magical for me, the words she swooned about being empowered, and being unapologetic about who I was… changed my life.  Trust me, At any girls night out, or gathering, you knew for sure that album was on rotation. okuurrttt!

See below how she took to her instagram page, Tuesday ,January 29 to give accolades to this earth shattering album. I am so elated along with her.  This album helped so many people ease into the next chapter of their journeys. 

Have you ever had an album that just gave you that mojo you needed? When I listened to ANTI, which was literally every day, all day, I gained another push out the cocoon so to speak. I was reminded that I really was a bad ass, and that I didn’t have to accept mediocre.  ‘Consideration’ reminded me that I’m my own boss, she says “I got to do things my own way darling You should just let me, will you ever respect me? No”. 

There was just something powerful about the frequency of the beats, along with the empowering words, that if you allowed, took you to another dimension. And again, I can’t even front you, at the time this album came out, I was ending a toxic relationship, which had me really growing the ‘growing pains’. It was not easy, at all, whole time giving up other toxic, unhealthy habits that I had picked up.  But about 6 months later I had rid of myself of those things due to the inspiration in the #ANTI album. This album was a saviour for me, in so many ways, for so many things. You feel me?

Check out some of the comments, including @hidden_agendablog. And by the way you guys, I am soo soo soo grateful for those of you who follow, like and comment on the blog and on the IG. I am so grateful for the new followers everyday on the blog.  I’m so grateful for the abundance of followers coming through on the blog, and the support. Even if it’s just a double tap on IG, I am grateful. After all, you don’t owe me anything. So I just wanted to interject my gratitude for YOU really quicklike. (little tear, sniff sniff). Anyway, let’s get to the comments below LOL.

So, if you haven’t listened to the ANTI album, do yourself a favor and grab it. Listen while you take a nice, soaking bath, or while you’re cleaning up.  I think you will love it and take from it what inspires you the most. Thanks Rihanna! And a bubbly toast to your happy #Antiversary…. xoxoxoxoxoxo.

Bey and Blue

Beyonce is enamored that her and her first born look so much alike. Her caption on her Instagram reads “Someone made this comparison of me at age 7 and Blue at age 7. My baby is growing up”. It’s amazing how much they look so much alike.

@tokyovanity comments with “The queen used a caption 😩🖤”. Bey also gave Blue props for being the photographer of their  dazzling photos shoot.
