Rihanna bares all for GQ

Rihanna let go of her inhibitions and apparently her clothes, as she poses topless for the January cover of GQ magazine.

In one her most revealing interviews yet, the 21-year-old singer opens-up about ex-boyfriend Chris Brown and the aftermath of her domestic violence incident.

On why she’s speaking out now: “It’s relieving, because it was built up for so long, and all these thoughts and emotions have been running through my mind for the past eight months and now it’s like I finally get to let go and move on. I wanted to move on. And I knew that was the only way I could have done it and I wanted people to move on with me. ‘Cause the last big thing they know about me is That Night. And I don’t want that to be what people define me as.”

On who helped her through the ordeal: “Nobody. I didn’t really want to be around anybody, for them to stare at me and stuff, and feel sorry for me. So I just — I stayed in the house a lot. Then I started to get cabin fever. I was like, I’m going crazy in here.”

On the biggest lesson she learnt: “Love is blind. It took a lot of strength to pull out of that relationship, to finally just officially cut it off. It was like night and day. It was two different worlds. It was the world I lived for two years, and then having the strength to say, ‘I’m gonna step into my own world. Start over.'”

On her message to women in abusive relationships: “Stop blaming yourself for that outcome, there’s nothing you can do, ever, to excuse a man’s behavior like that.”

On a friendship with Chris Brown: “Maybe in like ten years, but it’s not something that I’m depending on. I’m not depending on his friendship.”

Hmm, the Russian Roulette singer doesn’t seem too fond of apparel these days…In the words of L.A. Reid: “Rihanna, put some f*cking clothes on!”

The Queen goes Gaga for the princess of pop

What does one wear when she is to meet with the Queen?

For Lady Gaga, a red PVC, Elizabethan-inspired gown was the attire of choice, as the ‘Bad Romance’ singer paid homage to the golden age, albeit in her own unique way.

The 23-year-old joined a host of stars – including Miley Cyrus, Alexandra Burke and Bette Midler, to entertain the Monarch at the annual Royal Variety Performance in Blackpool.

Her show-stopping display, which included playing a piano suspended 10ft in the air was certainly the highlight of the night.

I wonder if the pair exchanged style tips?

Russell Brand blasts Daily Mail over Katy Perry marriage “lies”

Could wedding bells be ringing soon for Russell Brand and Katy Perry? I wouldn’t hold your breath.

The comedian called-out the Daily Mail on its “lies” for publishing an article which he supposedly reveals he is finally ready to settle down and start a family with his pop-star girlfriend, claiming he said: “I’d love to marry Katy – hopefully it’s heading that way and I’m really happy. I do want to have children.”

However, the 34-year-old, who has been courting the ‘Waking Up In Vegas‘ singer since September, has blasted the quote as false via his Twitter account: “The Daily Mail tell lies. ‘Nathan Kay’ is a pustule of untruth. I suppose we ought be grateful they’ve stopped supporting Hitler”

Err…well, I guess that clears that up then.

Tiger Woods’ mistress count up to 10

Another day, another woman.

Almost two-weeks have passed since Tiger Woods’ Thanksgiving car crash and the revelations just keep on coming.

With no less than ten women alleged to have been involved in extra-curricular activities with the married pro-golfer, we take a look at the latest tally of the 31-year-olds’ score card…

1. Rachel Uchitel – The first mistress to be linked to Woods after The National Enquirer reported that she travelled to Australia to be with him during a golf tournament. The club hostess has denied an affair, but it’s widely believed that the golf-pro bought her discretion to the sum of £1 million after pulling the plug on a press conference at the last-minute, following a series of secret phone calls with Woods’ reps.

2. Jaimee Grubbs – The 24-year-old cocktail waitress, who also appeared on VH1’s Tool Academy claims she had a 31-month-long liaison with Woods since April 2007 up to his now infamous crash. Opening up to Us Weekly, she provided a voicemail recording, allegedly of Woods, calling Grubbs after fearing his wife, Elin Nordegren, had found out about their trysts.

3. Kalika Moquin – The 27-year-old, Las Vegas nightclub manager supposedly hooked-up with the golfing billionaire, according to a report by Life & Style magazine. Moquin has neither confirmed nor denied an affair, simply stating: “It’s not appropriate for me to comment one way or the other. At this time, I’m just choosing to focus on my job.”

4. Jamie Jungers – The 26-year-old cocktail waitress and aspiring model professes she had an 18-month romance with Woods after meeting him in Las Vegas. Jamie would purportedly meet the golf legend for sex at his California home where it’s claimed they would romp surrounded by wedding snaps of Woods and his wife.

5. Cori Rist – The 31-year-old swimsuit model reportedly met Woods at a Manhattan club last year before they began a sexual relationship that led to the star flying her out to various secret locations for play-time. Cori, who has even introduced the golfer to her 7-year-old son, has played her cards close to her chest since the scandal broke, only saying “No comment. Not at this time.”

6. Mindy Lawton – The 33-year-old revealed to the News of the World that she began a one-year affair with Tiger in May 2006, while his wife Elin was pregnant with their first child. According to the New York Post their ‘relationship’ was covered up by The National Enquirer two years ago, after a damning photo of Woods indiscretion with the waitress led to a Men’s Fitness cover in exchange for the magazine’s silence about the alleged affair.

7. Holly Sampson – According to The Sun, the 36-year-old porn star from Los Angeles is the seventh woman alleged to be connected with Woods. Sampson’s film work includes such jewels as Descent into Bondage and Diary of a Horny Housewife.

8. Unidentified Orlando Woman – A former cocktail waitress, she does not want to reveal her identity yet, according to attorney Michael O’Quinn. At the time the relationship supposedly began, she was 20-years-old and met Woods at the Roxy in Orlando, where she was a VIP server.

9. Unidentified British Broadcaster – Rumours continue to swirl of a hook-up between the golfer and a ‘sexy’ British TV presenter who was single at the time but is now married. 

10. Unidentified ‘Cougar’ – Reports of dalliances with an older woman known so far only as a “sex-addicted cougar.”

Phew! We had to stop and eat a sandwich halfway. Of course if Woods really did dabble with all these women, then only one question remains…How did he have time to actually play golf?
