Fresh off promoting her new philanthropic role with MAC on "GMA" yesterday morning, Rihanna partied it up at her launch party for the MAC Viva Glam Rihanna collection.
She hit the MAC Soho store rocking metallic Louboutins, a sugarplum Lanvin Spring 2014 Metallic Blazer, a Lanvin Dream-Front metallic tee, and a royal blue Lanvin ruffled hem skirt for a fun yet luxe look.
She posed with Michel Sidibe Executive Director UNAIDS, John Dempsey, the President of MAC Cosmetics and Nancy Mahon, the Global executive director of the MAC AIDS Fund.

We caught up with LaLa Anthony at her Barnes & Nobles book signing for The Love Playbook in NYC this week. She locked down NBA baller Carmelo Anthony for the last 3 years, and the happily married couple has been together for over a decade.
So we got her to serve up her own tea about sex, divorce, weddings vs. marriage, and what Melo thinks about it all....
5th and Mercer fashion designer and Baggage Claim actress LaLa is dishing up the real about love, marriage, sex, divorce and more. And we got her to tell us some things she didn't put in her book.
After going through a public rough patch with her NBA husband, she's got some insight on when a couple should go the divorce route. LaLa, who said she loves breaking stereotypes that say she can only have one career at a time, consulted her friends Ciara, Kim K., Kelly Rowland and her inner circle of friends for her relationship advice book. So we may get a few nuggets in there.
Here's some things we just had to know:
On 'Game Time' -- Marriage vs. Wedding
On whether she would go back and change anything about her wedding day?
On being in a relationship where she felt like she was just dating the man to feel validated
On who contributed advice for the book, besides mom and grandmom
On divorce and suggesting it for a couple
On the celebrity couples she admires?
On dishing motherhood tips to Ciara
On her ONE rule of sex
On what Melo had to say about her writing a book on love and sex
"Yesterday, Kelly was getting emotional because you realize how many people need people us and need a voice and are kind of lost out there and need help and don’t have people to turn to. So, of course, my husband was supportive of that. He couldn’t be at the book signing because he had a game but we had a little thing afterwards just for my friends and family and he came and we had a really good time and celebrating all the amazing things. We had a really good time. And a lot of my family was at the book signing. Everybody comes out to support and I never take for granted what a great support system I have with my family. My day flew in from overseas just for a few hours just to come to the book signing. That’s the kind of stuff I have to think about and be thankful for. I really am thankful. The book is number 1 right now. We’re just waiting to see if I’m on the Bestsellers list. I know what I felt yesterday in that room and if we can stay in this number 1 spot that would be amazing but I already feel accomplished just from yesterday."
On whether she'll go back to her hosting gig
Her good friend Po also showed up at the book signing this week. Next up for LaLa: She's currently shooting a movie called November Rule executive produced by Queen Latifah, will appear on the new STARZ series "Power" with Omari Hardwick, and is starring in the upcoming flick Think Like A Man Too out June 20th.
The Love Playbook is available everywhere now.

Now that the dust has settled, Kendrick Lamar has spoken to XXL about being snubbed by the Grammys. But don't expect to hear any -ish talking.....
In other K. Dot news, he helped J. Cole celebrate his 29th birthday at MSG.
The Hollywood Reporter published a gorgeous pic from Clive Davis' legendary pre-Grammys party that featured Pharrell, Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson and T.I. Speaking about the party, Fantasia said, "If you're not here, you're at the wrong party." T.I. added "This party is a staple. I believe it’s just as important and just as highbrow as the ceremony."
Watch Fantasia perform "Stomy Weather" at the party:
In new music videos....
Shakira and Rihanna get very close in the video for “Can’t Remember to Forget You” (premiering tomorrow on VEVO). Teasing its arrival, Shakira released two stills from the Joseph Kahn-directed clip.
Speaking about Rihanna's performance, Shakira said. “Her voice in this song is just unreal ’cause she is reggae. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a female singer deliver her lines in a reggae song with such authenticity. I’m just over the moon to know that we did a video together and we did this song together.”

Usher Raymond has sold the former home he shared with ex-wife Tameka Raymond. Get sales deets inside and see what Naya Rivera said about "public" sex with Big Sean.
The former home of Usher and Tameka Raymond has been sold. You'll recall that Usher allowed Tameka to stay in the 12,544 square-foot home after they divorced in 2009, but he decided to put it on the market in 2012.
According to Radar Online, he purchased the home in 2007 for $3.04 million and sold it in November 2013 for $2.2 million, allegedly losing nearly $1 million on it. The home has 8-bedroom and 11-bathrooms.
Meanwhile, Tameka Raymond will be starring in the new VH1 series Atlanta Exes. Once the show airs, we'll see if Tameka was able to rebound in a suitable McMansion in Atlanta.
In the latest issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas, Naya Rivera spills relationship deets about Big Sean including the tea on their sex life and if she thinks he'll be a good dad. Here are the highlights:

We've hinted more than a few times that we were pretty sure who was cast for the the upcoming show "Atlanta Exes". And now, VH1 has confirmed the reports.
Deets inside on VH1's newest reality stars....
It's here! VH1 just announced the southern fried spinoff of the hit show "Hollywood Exes" (which will return April 30th).
Just as we previously speculated, "Atlanta Exes" will star Tameka Raymond, Torrei Hart, Christina Johnson, Sheree Buchanan and Monyetta Shaw. And it's premiering this summer on VH1.
Here's the rundown of the ladies:
Tameka Raymond, who once enjoyed the perks and privileges that come with being married to international music superstar Usher, now dedicates much of her time to the charitable foundation she started in memory of her late son Kile.
She's been spotted partying with co-star, author and businesswoman Monyetta Shaw (the ex-fiance of Ne-Yo) on various occasions these past few months--including her 43rd birthday party (above) and movie premieres (above). Monyetta is busy penning a children’s book series based on the lively personality of her & Ne-Yo's toddlers.
Interior designer to the stars Christina Johnson is the ex-wife of Cee-Lo Green and was recently seen at Torrei's son Hendrix's 6th birthday party recently.
Actress/Comedienne/Producer Torrei Hart may be comedian Kevin Hart's ex-wife, but they seem to have reached a calm place in their relationship now and co-parent with the best of 'em.
And entrepreneur Sheree Buchanan (ex-wife of former pro football player Ray Buchanan), co-owns a dessert catering company. She also has a business that specializes in creating custom bedazzled hookah pipes.
“It is exciting that the continued success of “Hollywood Exes” has allowed us to expand this popular franchise into additional cities,” stated Susan Levison, EVP Original Programming & Production, VH1. “Atlanta is truly enjoying a moment in the spotlight, so taking the ‘Exes’ brand down South was a natural evolution for VH1. This dynamic cast truly defines what it means to be a ‘mover and shaker’ in the Atlanta social scene, and we look forward to giving our viewers a look into their unique world.”

Now that details about Apollo Nida's alleged criminal activites have come to light, Angela Stanton has a few words for Phaedra Parks and that $30 Million lawsuit that nearly destroyed her life. Read her statement inside...
A short while ago, Angela Stanton wrote a tell-all book called Lies of a Real Housewife detailing an eleborate federal racketeering scheme that involved herself, Apollo Nida and RHOA star Phaedra Parks. Angela was promptly shut down and silenced by a $30 Million lawsuit Phaedra filed.
Well, well, well. Now that Apollo is reportedly being watched by the Feds, those things Angela wrote about don't seem so farfetched. Now, Angela is back on the scene and speaking out about Phaedra using her power and influence to crush her book sales and how she says Phaedra and Apollo manipulated her into their scheme.
Messy, messy, messy.
In other news about Apollo, Radar Online published alleged deets about his strict bail conditions. In addition to the $25,000 he reportedly paid, he is allegdly required to regularly report to a probation officer, actively seek employment, surrender his passport, and refrain from drug and alcohol use.

How cute! Baby Sebastian Thomaz was spotted looking all kinds of adorable while strolling in Runyon Canyon yesterday afternoon with papa Wiz Khalifa and mommy Amber Rose:

Gabrielle Union has officially tapped into the wine market. And she's created her own vanilla wine...that literally tastes like vanilla pudding. Check out what she had to say about it on "Chelsea Lately" last night...
In between talking about how she's the "older woman" out of the Miami Heat ballers and WAGS, setting a wedding date, and how she's 9 years older than her fiance Dwyane Wade, Gabby Union chopped it up with Chelsea Handler last night about her brand new wine venture.
She's teamed up with a wine distributor to create a Chardonnay that "tastes good", as she put it. She didn't want a cork because she wants to "be able to get to the liquor quickly". And she wanted it to have a sweet taste...so she went with vanilla.
Check out Gabby and Chelsea pouring up and Gabby talking about doing unsexy bodily functions in front of her man.
And if you want to know more about Gabby's wine...
According to the Vanilla Puddin Wine Facebook page:
The 2012 Vanilla Puddin Wine will be released on February 12th. Who's ready to sip on this?
BONUS: Gabby told People magazine about the type of support she's been getting since announcing her engagement, and that she's letting Dwyane do all the heavy lifting:
And about fear of messing up: "I'm divorced, so I've made a ton of bad decisions in relationships."
Many would agree...
