We all know Rihanna can pull off pretty much anything.  And this pineapple & palm tree covered cop top and matching jogger pant is another one of those looks that she makes look like a million bucks.


Check out her cute look for her dental appointment inside...

Rihanna kept it tropical for her trip to the dentist Saturday afternoon in the Village in NYC, fresh off chillin' it courtside with Drake's homie James Young at the Brooklyn Nets game Friday night.  She rocked the pineapple & palm tree printed 'Cote D-Azur' matchy matchy crop top (possibly altered from its original state as a sweatshirt) and pants from the Zoe Karssen Spring Summer 2014  "Voodoo Child Collection" ($135 each). And paired it all with silver metallic lace up loafers.

The Amsterdam-based fashion house is known for their fun prints and graphics.

LIVIN' LIFE: Game Shops It Up With "Bad" Business Associate + LaLa & Carmelo Kick Off "Off Season" With A Turks & Caicos Vavay

The Game was spotted spending the afternoon with a pretty young thing Saturday afternoon.  He says it's all business....but we're sure he's waiting for a bit of pleasure too.  Check out his lunch & shopping partner inside, plus LaLa and Carmelo Anthony are spending the beginning of the NBA post season in Turks & Caicos...


The Game hit the L.A. streets yesterday with model/dancer Britt Lucio, who is also the brand ambassador (i.e. model) for the Padrino Tequila company he's doing some business with.  The rapper had a lunch meeting on Robertson Blvd. with the rep from the tequila company, as well as Britt, to only "talk business" as he said, but Game sounded like he was trying to get at Britt on the sly tip as well.  He posted:

Then the two hit up Kitson close by for a little shopping:

Game, who stopped to snap pics with a few fans, also gave a lengthy response to the Donald Sterling situation.  The Cali rapper said he's starting a campaign to get fans to skip games in boycott:

I have to say that after listening to the full audio clip of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling making racists comments towards (minorities) specifically African Americans & Hispanics, I am totally outraged & very upset !!! He also went on to say that because Magic Johnson was black he did not want Magic to attend any of the Los Angeles Clippers games. Myself being African American & having a huge Hispanic following... I find myself in a position to defend both my heritage & that of all of the Hispanic community, not only here but around the world.... Whom, both are very supportive of not only the Los Angeles Clippers, but every professional sports franchise in Los Angeles & elsewhere specifically the Los Angeles Dodgers... Whose owner & opposing Los Angeles Lakers great "Earvin Magic Johnson" was both disrespected & racially profiled by the Clippers owner. Not sure on exact numbers but I'm pretty sure Hispanics alone make up at least 65% of ticket buyers for Los Angeles Clippers games as well as merchandising. With that said, it was not only ignorant & racist but a non-calculated & disgusting business move on Donald Sterlings part. In the support of my own race, Hispanics & every other race whose been fighting current & past racism I have now started the #ESC which is short for #EMPTYSEATCAMPAIGN asking ALL Los Angeles residents to boycott the next Clippers game by not attending which will prove that we are more of a MAJORITY than the previously stated "minority" label given to us by Mr. Sterling. Although I feel for friends of mine that play for the Clippers franchise such as @CP3 whose own team owner considers a minority...... I now, along with good friend & designer @ceoselfmade ask everyone who reads this WORLDWIDE to RE-POST this picture & hashtag: #BoycottClippers #ESC #EmptySeatCampaign #Support #OGMagicJohnson #StopRacism #OneWorld #WeAreAMajority


Meanwhile, over in Turks & Caicos, Carmelo has no worries as he's vacaying it up with wife LaLa and their son Kiyan:

La showed off her new super blonde cut and a cute look as she and her man posed it up in a pic....snapped by little Kiyan.

Her show "LaLa's Full Court Life" returns to VH1 with a fifth season on Wednesday, May 7th at 10PM ET/PT on VH.1

Fab times!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Pebbles Comes Out Swinging, Sues Viacom For $40 Million!

Posted: 27 Apr 2014 07:04 AM PDT

In case you missed it, Peri "Pebbles" Reid kept to her word and filed a $40 million lawsuit against Viacom over that "TLC Story" TV movie.  Deets inside...

Remember when Pebbles threatened to sue EVERYBODY involved with "The TLC Story" after it aired on VH1 last year?  And she spilled all the piping hot tea on "The Wendy Show" soon after?  Well, she's made good on her promise.

Pebbles is taking Viacom, VH1's parent company, to task over what she claims is a false story that defames her character.  Page Six reports:

Reid claims in Atlanta federal court that the 2013 VH1 movie portrays her “as a conniving and dishonest business woman who hoodwinked three innocent girls and exploited their talent for her own personal gain.”

An R&B singer who has herself sold over 4 million records, Reid says in the suit that Viacom “ignored fundamental canons of journalistic and literary conduct by publishing false and defamatory accusations with actual malice.”

The suit filed late Friday states that, contrary to what VH1 viewers saw, Reid never controlled TLC’s lawyers or accountants, never withheld contract terms from TLC and always paid the group what they were owed.

Pebbles has been speaking out about the alleged falseities in the VH1 TV movie, despie VH1 putting out a disclaimer that the movie was LOOSELY based on a true story.

The movie shed light on what allegedly went down with the members of TLC and why they went bankrupt, which appeared to be due to the lies and stealing done by their manager Pebbles.



The Randomness:

1.  LeBron James publicly condemned L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling for his "No blacks at my games!" comments and said there's no room in the league if it's him on the tape.  Thanks for taking a definitive stance from a player's perspective Bron!  STORY

Magic Johnson, Deandre Jordan REACT To Donald Sterling's Racist Comments, Clippers President Attempts To DEFEND Sterling & Blames Girlfriend

Posted: 26 Apr 2014 04:35 PM PDT


Ish has hit the fan with L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his (alleged) horribly racist remarks about black people....and Magic Johnson.  Find out what is being said now inside...

L.A. Clippers President Andy Roeser has put out a statement that is doing nothing short of spinning this entire story to make Donald Sterling look like the victim.  And Roeser even went as far as accusing the girlfriend, who is on the tape, of being the person who turned in the tapes.  And they linked the reasoning to an alleged lawsuit she is involved in at the hands of the Sterling family.  There is no proof yet to back up this accusation (which seems to be an attempt at changing the conversation), but here it goes:

We have heard the tape on TMZ.  We do not know if its legitimate or it has been altered.  We do not know if it is legitimate or it has been altered.  We do know that the woman on the tape--who we believe released it to TMZ--is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would 'get even.'  

Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings.  It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life. He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them.  He is also upset and apologizes for sentiments attributed to him about Earvin Johnson.  He has long considered Magic a friend and has only the utmost respect and admiration for him0both in terms of who he is and what he has achieved.  We are investigating this matter."

The old "he's not racist and his comments were misconstrued" argument strikes again.

The statement never once said that it's NOT Donald on the tape.  And whether he was "set up" or not, the words still appear to be SAID by him...not just "sentiments attributed to him" like President Roeser seems to be trying to sway public opinion a certain way by saying.  

Intersestingly, Magic Johnson seems to believe owner Sterling is totally capable of these words, maybe because of the SEVERAL racial discrimantion suits Sterling's been involved in.  Magic tweeted today:




Powerful!  Thankfully, some folks get the necessity of taking a stance.  Clippers baller Deandre Jordan posted a black square, which is believed to be a statement of black power:


Charles Barkley, speaking to Don Lemon on CNN today, has called for suspension (even if it's ceremonial) of Donald Sterling as this is one time too many Sterling has gone entirely too far with his ignorant actions.

The NBA's VP of Communications Mike Bass put out this statement:

We are in the process of conducting a full investigation into the audio recording obtained by TMZ.  The remarks heard on the reording are disturbing and offensive, but at this time we have no further information.


A person in a position of power who is allowed to say ANY racially discimantory words against an entire gorup of people, many of which they have made a PROFIT off of, can not be allowed.  It simply CAN NOT BE allowed.  Back in the day, players like Bill Russell took the risk of taking a stand for the greater good.  Some type of action needs to be taken by Coach Doc Rivers (who reportedly was PISSED and had a statemrnt that was mysteriously tossed to the side and superceded by President Roeser's statement above), players and/or the Commissioner to show you have self respect, and respect for your players.

The Clippers had a meeting this morning for about 45 minutes, according to NBA TV reporter David Aldridge, and they have decided not to boycott and to focus solely on tomorrow's playoff game against the Golden State Warriors. 

A press conference will be happening tonight at 8:30p ET by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver tonight on the matter and it will air on NBA TV.
