Authorities have arrested four people who allegedly targeted the homes of Hollywood celebrities and high profile sports stars in a spate of burglaries over the past few months, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed.
Three teenage boys and the mother of one of the suspects are accused of robbing a number of mansions and also having a burglary wish list featuring a who’s who of the A-List.
The celebrities and pro athletes were allegedly targeted by the burglars who studied their social media and tour schedule, Lillian L. Carranza, Commanding Officer of Commercial Crimes Division for the Los Angeles Police Department said during a press conference held Tuesday.
“The burglars believed no one would be home, and the homes would contain sought-after valuables that they might be interested in,” she said.
Police arrested Jshawne Lamon Daniels, 19, Tyress Lavon Williams, 19, and Damaji Corey Hall, 18, after they were pulled over on Sept. 27 in South Los Angeles after allegedly robbing Los Angeles Rams receiver Robert Woods’ home in Woodland Hills.

Carranza said three suspects were detained and later arrested after officers allegedly found property, including a firearm, which they identified as belonging to Woods.
LAPD alleges that the suspects were also responsible for the recent burglaries of homes belonging to Rihanna and Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig and Christina Milian as well as her boyfriend French singer Matthieu “M. Pokora” Tota.
After obtaining a search warrant, authorities allegedly recovered more than $50,000 in cash, designer handbags, watches and jewelry, as well as a stolen vehicle at one of the suspects’ homes.

Daniels, Williams and Hall were all charged with burglary. In addition Hall’s mother, 34-year-old Ashle Jennifer Hall, was charged with grand theft in association with stolen property and a firearm recovered from the vehicle.
At this time, the investigation is still ongoing and police believe the suspects may be involved in a number of other burglaries.
Police believed there are more people involved in the alleged burglary ring. Authorities allege the ring steal by doing what they have dubbed “flocking,” where by the group would allegedly all drive around the area in luxury cars and clothing.
“They flock like birds to areas where the rich and famous resided,” Carranza said.
“Once a potential target home was selected, a larger vehicle would be utilized to give the suspects the opportunity to change into more comfortable clothing and hoodies to avoid being recognized and cart away the stolen goods,” Carranza added.
Carranza said the suspects would grab cash, guns, jewelry and designer goods within minutes, taking “flight” before alarm companies could respond or notify the owners.
The four remain in police custody and have yet to make pleas. It is not clear if the group have engaged legal representation at this time.
The spate of robberies has been compared to those carried out by the infamous Bling Ring, a five-person Los Angeles gang that burgled the homes of celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom in 2008 and 2009, when most of its members were teenagers.
Those involved and their crimes later inspired the 2013 film starring Emma Watson, The Bling Ring.
Paris Hilton, Josephine Skriver, Jasmine Sanders and The Unbelievable Sexiness At Rihanna’s Annual Diamond Ball
Rihanna had that song about shining bright like a diamond, so now she’s got a Diamond Ball. Something tells me this is all a set-up for her eventual book Rihanna: All the Balls I’ve Held.
Of course, the best thing about a Rihanna ball is all the hotties that will be in attendance. This ball was no exception, and kicking things off we’ve got Paris Hilton. All the kids love Paris Hilton because she shows up and says her catchphrase, “Dy-no-MITE!” and gets paid a million dollars that she then spends on dogs that fit in purses.
Another one all the kids love is Josephine Skriver. What a role model. All the kids look up to Josephine Skriver as the pinnacle of what one can achieve with a last name that sounds like an upper respiratory infection. “Can Jack come out play?” “Sorry kids, he came down with a real bad case of Skriver.” “Oh no, my sister died from Skriver.” Things of that nature
Jasmine Sanders was also there, heir to world famous chicken empire Popeyes. Didn’t see that one coming, did you? Ah, we have a good time and a laugh, don’t we?

Rihanna was part of New York Fashion Week as a designer and received rave reviews for her line. Ron Jeremy and his big ol’ dick were there walking the runway too.
No one really cared about the clothing because it all ends up in the drawer or on the floor, but people loved the diversity of her models.
Not so importantly, she used Gigi and Bella Hadid to help promote the line.

The real story is that Rihanna used models of all shapes, sizes, and races. Some weren’t even models, she just pulled people off the street like the Hadid sisters and was like, “Wear this.”

While others at NYFW are throwing shoes and starting fights over petty shit, Rihanna is uniting the world.
Imagine thinking Rihanna isn’t the absolute best.
The 30-year-old “Work” singer was absent from this year’s 2018 MTV Video Music Awards because, in true Rihanna style, she was busy living her best life.
Instead of hitting the red carpet, the star hit a town square in Havana, Cuba, Monday treating it as a stage as she twirled around to Childish Gambino’s “Summertime Magic.”
In a video posted to her social media, Rihanna beamed as she jumped and spun around in a loose-fitting gold dress paired with sneakers and a sun straw hat.
“Do-ya-luh-me-too-?” Rihanna captioned the Instagram quoting Gambino’s lyrics.

Last week, the Ocean’s 8 actress was spotted in Cuba with Gambino, 34, whose real name is Donald Glover. The two are reportedly filming Guava Island directed by Hiro Murai, according to W Magazine.
It’s no secret that Rihanna has been enjoying her summer. In addition to dancing the day away in Cuba, the singer recently enjoyed a trip to the beach for her hairstylist Yusef Williams’ birthday.
For the outing, Rihanna wore a bright red bikini top paired with high-cut bottoms, showing off her toned stomach.

This past weekend, Rihanna jetted off to another tropical destination, her hometown of Barbados for her childhood friend Sonita Alexander’s wedding.
For the big day, Rihanna served as Alexander’s bridesmaid and wore a cobalt blue dress with ruffled sleeves.
When she’s not enjoying herself on vacation, Rihanna is gearing up for her fourth annual Diamond Ball.
“Issa Rae and Childish Gambino were the dream duo for the fourth Annual Diamond Ball and they’re coming!! We are honored and grateful to have them help us celebrate the Clara Lionel Foundation this year,” Rihanna said in a statement.

Rihanna is good at compliments. I guess?
Rihanna and Anne Hathaway co-star in the upcoming Ocean’s 8 movie. The movie also stars a bunch of other women including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina and Helena Bonham Carter. If you’ve seen the Oceans franchise or any of the trailers, you know it’s about a bunch of men robbing places. In this case, it’s a crew of women instead of George Clooney and his merry band of brothers.
Ocean’s 8 is also a movie about female empowerment, showing that women can commit crimes just as well as men. That theory will be tested if it fails at the box office.
Hathaway stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show to plug the movie. She talked about how Hollywood makes women self-conscious about their bodies. Ocean’s 8 was her first role after birthing out her son, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman, and Hathaway was feeling a tad nervous about her pregnancy weight.
“I don’t beat myself up about any of that stuff anymore, but after I had my son, the weight was really slow to come off and so I was a different size than I normally am.”
Translation: I was a bit pudgy.
Leave it to her female co-stars to pick up her chubby spirits.
“I walked on the set, and my weight’s a little up and I’m just aware of it and I’m in my jeans, and I’ve done my best and I’m gonna love myself no matter what. And Sandy Bullock looks up and goes, ‘You look good mama.’ And then Cate Blanchett’s like, ‘Nice jeans, Hathaway.’ And then Rihanna looks up and goes, ‘Damn girl, you got an ass.’ ”
And I of course was freaked out and loved it so much and I go, ‘Really?’ And she goes, ‘You got an ass like me.’ And I can honestly say I’ve never had that experience on a film set before.”
So Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, who are size 2’s, troll Hathaway and tell her she looks good. Was this said with a straight face? Also, Rihanna basically tells Hathaway she’s a fatty just like her. Great, thanks for the support Rihanna.
After all these compliments, the male producers forced Hathaway to lose the extra weight because this is still Hollywood.

It obviously takes time for a fashion trend to catch on, hence why the look that Angelina Jolie sported at the 2012 Academy Awards is finally trickling down to movie premieres. The sexy stars of Ocean’s 8—along with some sexy celebs on hand just for the premiere—were rocking the bold, single leg forward look, happily heisting it from Angelina, much like their sticky fingered characters.
The film’s stars all looked ravishing, from leads Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock to supporting cast members like Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, and Rihanna. No sign of Awkwafina, though, whose name annoys me to no end, especially considering it’s a variation on a Pepsi-branded product. Pretty stupid.
Then you’ve got to give it up to the hot ladies like Gigi Hadid, Adriana Lima, and Dascha Polanco for turning up in a show of solidarity for the female-themed caper flick. Just because they’ll never be in movies, doesn’t mean they don’t like to go to the movies and show off most of one of their legs, okay? Get with the times, yo. This movie is nuts and edgy and in your face… just like that one cast member’s name, Awkwafina. Man, it just gets dumber every time I type it.

A man by the name of Eduardo Leon broke into Rihanna’s house on Wednesday. His plan? Just have sex with her.
You have to admire the guy’s honesty.
He was found Thursday morning by Rihanna’s assistant and was tased and arrested by the cops. He was able to disable the alarm system and made himself at home by unpacking his bags and charging his phone. Gotta make sure that battery is 100 percent if you’re about to have sex with Rihanna.
Leon told cops that he was not going to use force to engage in intercourse. So had she said no, it sounds like he was just going to leave without an issue. Rihanna was not home at the time of the incident.
Leon was arrested for stalking on May 4 after breaking into another home, thinking it was Rihanna’s. He’s a terrible stalker if he didn’t know which house was hers and she wasn’t home when he broke into the correct house.
He’s being held on $150,000 bail. No word if his phone charger was returned or not.
Your move, Taylor Swift stalkers.

Apparently it’s cool to be Catholic again. At least, taking a look at the various gaudy costumes worn by celebrities to this year’s Met Gala, you’d think that the Catholics had taken over the world once again. That or we’re officially living in Rome. Either way, the last days are always the most splendid!
Every singer, model, actress, and big breasted mamma jammas were in attendance at the Met Gala, and they all got wind that the theme was “Let Them Eat Cake” so they all showed up looking like they’re in the world’s worst production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
Seriously, Liberace would have looked like a conservative had he walked into last night’s festivities. This is the absolute most ostentatious display of wealth I’ve seen in some time.
I say it often, but I believe it’s true that we are living in the final days of Rome, so I suppose we should all enjoy ourselves while it lasts. Break out your Pope hats and your Joan of Arc wigs and your finest chain mail, for the time has come to send this society out in fashion. What a time to be alive, I tells ya!

Rihanna is talented and beloved and beautiful, and the cover of Vogue is exactly where she belongs.
In her interview, Rihanna talks about Fenty, she dishes about what she'll be like as a mother, and even almost addresses her relationship with Hassan Jameel.
She also reveals that she and Drake, once joined at the hip, aren't even friends anymore.
Rihanna is on Vogue's cover for June, which is honestly where she should be every month of the year, and she talks about so much.
Including a certain awkward exchange with Drake at the 2016 VMAs. Rihanna describes the atmosphere:
"The VMAs is such a fan-focused awards show."
That's certainly true. MTV knows how to cater to its audience.
"So having that energy around me, and knowing the people who had received the award in the past, made it feel like a big deal."
And she did not like listening to Drake shower her with praise in front of everyone. It was awkward af.
"Waiting through that speech was probably the most uncomfortable part. I don’t like too many compliments; I don’t like to be put on blast."
Normally put on blast describes something much more hostile. It says a lot when someone is praised so much that they feel attackd.
And there was, of course, the moment when Drake seemed to try to kiss her, leading Rihanna to visibly recoil and hold his head against her shoulder in the world's most awkward hug.
Rihanna and Drake were once inseparable, but Rihanna describes how radically that has changed.
"We don’t have a friendship now."
That said, they aren't feuding.
"But we’re not enemies either."
There's a middle ground.
"It is what it is."
Hard to argue with that.
Rihanna does not confirm her widely rumored romance with Hassan Jameel -- though, considering how many times they've been spotted together, she might not have to.
She does seem to allude to that relationship, saying:
"I used to feel guilty about taking personal time, but I also think I never met someone who was worth it before."
So that song about work, work, work was no joke.
She speaks on a broader, vaguer subject of stepping back from work.
"Even mentally, just to be away from my phone, to be in the moment, that has been key for my growth."
She says that it really helps her to commit to work itself.
"Now, when I come to work, I’m all in. Because before you know it, the years will go by. I’m glad I’m taking the time. I’m happy."
However, she does discuss the possibility of becoming a mother -- and even jokes that, now that she's 30, she should have some of her eggs frozen.
"I’m not gonna be able to take my eyes off my kid."
Little kids need to be watched every minute, and a lot of people already know that they're going to want to spend all of their time bonding with their babies.
"I know that already about myself."
While getting a nanny when you're rich and busy is almost universal, Rihanna will have a hard time with it.
"They’re going to have to force me to hire a nanny."
She is so good.
Honestly, Rihanna is often coy about her personal life -- as we've seen when she dances around the "rumor" of her dating Hassan Jameel.
Other times, she says outlandish, amazing things that go viral immediately.
Because she's a treasure.
It's nice that she was so direct about how things have changed with Drake, even though it is of course sad to see any friendship fade. But it happens.
Tragedy has struck Rihanna and her family.
The singer took to Instagram on Tuesday night and passed along the sad news that her cousin had been murdered in Barbados.
Only 21 years old, Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne was shot and killed while spending time in Rihanna's native country.
In tribute to her late loved one, Rihanna wrote the following on her social media account.
"RIP cousin… can’t believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms!” Rihanna captioned a slideshow of four photos with Alleyne.
“Never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man! #endgunviolence.”
While followers have expressed their condolences to Rihanna and passed along their sympathies online, many have also focused on the hashtag she included.
End. Gun. Violence.
This is probably as contentious of an issue as exists in America right now.
Heck, the same day Rihanna shared this post, Teen Mom 2 star Jeremy Calvert received both backlash and compliments for gifting his four-year old daughter with a rifle.
Some folks are aghast that any father would do such a thing...
... while others think Calvert was acting responsibly by teaching his child gun safety at a young age.
In other words: gun violence is a complicated issue.
Rihanna has been applauded by some for her call to action above, while others have wondered what steps she is referring to, exactly.
As for the specifics of what happened with her cousin:
According to local reports, Alleyne was simply walking near his residence in Lake Close, Eden Lodge, St. Michael, around 7 p.m. when he was approached by a man who shot him multiple times before fleeing the scene.
The victim was then rushed to a nearby hospital and later pronounced dead.
Authorities in Barbados have launched an investigation.
It's a tragedy.
In February, Alleyne posted a special message to Rihanna in honor of her birthday.
“Every day we are happy to have you in our lives,” he wrote at the time, adding:
“Happy Birthday cousin, we really love you. Your presence in my life is a source of joy and happiness. To my favorite cousin, may all your dreams and wishes come true.
May he rest in peace.
Rihanna v. Trump, battle royale. Set it up.
Puerto Rico basically is starting over right now. Most of their country is decimated. Only today did President Trump try to do something to help them by waiving the Jones Act. That makes it easier to ship goods, such as supplies and food, to them. So, good for Trump.
Rihanna is doing her part by drawing attention to the crisis. Daily News printed a headline that said, “No food, no water, no power, no medical care for the dying…Puerto Rico needs more help, Mr. President!” All that on top of a headline blaring “AMERICAN TRAGEDY” in all caps.
Rihanna tweeted out the cover with the caption:
Dear @realDonaldTrump I know you’ve probably already seen this, but I just wanted to make sure!
Don’t let your people die like this.
Oh hey by the way Mr. President, people dying, yes? You noticed?
Twitter fell in love with Rihanna and went all the way up her butt in their praise.
nothing but respect for MY president. pic.twitter.com/aCw99OAcn1

Meanwhile, Rihanna’s giving her pr people kudos such a well-received tweet.
I don’t know what Crop Over Festival is, but it’s giving us Rihanna looking like this. So, God bless you, Crop Over Festival.
According to my research, I am an investigative journalist after all, Crop Over Festival is an annual event in Barbados, Rihanna’s place of birth. The original intention was to celebrate the end of sugar cane harvest season. Now it’s just a thing where you get really drunk and dance a lot. It lasts for two whole months because I guess there isn’t a lot going on in Barbados, so they can just party for two months. It’s similar to Carnival in Brazil and every night in New Orleans.
You’re now smarter having read this post in search of hot Rihanna pictures.
Rihanna shows up to Crop Over Festival every year because there’s nothing Rihanna loves more than having a good time. Her peacock mermaid outfit is standard clothing for Crop Over Festival. Nothing says, “no more sugar cane harvesting” like “come harvest your cane in this sugar” outfits.

Rihanna tried to go on Instagram Live, but do you know how many worshippers and stalkers were trying to view that live feed? Around 40,000. More people tried to watch Rihanna dance than will buy the next UFC pay-per-view. Also, the internet connection in Barbados is bad. I’m not saying Barbados is poor and doesn’t have good internet. I’m saying thousands of people trying to use the same network in the same location automatically means the connection will suck. I barely get good speeds at the local Starbucks and only a dozen or so people are using that network.
If you want to watch two minutes of Rihanna’s blue hair, here you go:
I’m just wondering where her billionaire boyfriend is. Are they not serious enough for her to introduce him to her home country or have theY broken up already? You know every guy in Barbados is hoping for the latter.
I think craving approval from a significant other’s family is a near universal experience. There’s nothing scarier than your in-laws thinking you’re not good enough. For most of us, those fears are largely unfounded. Not the case with Rihanna’s main squeeze, Hassan Jameel.
After the stunning revelation that no, Rihanna was not in fact going steady with Drake, we all adjusted to the Hassan Jameel world. All of us that is, except for Ronald Fenty, Rihanna’s pops. So what’s Mr. Fenty’s problem with the wealthy Saudi Arabian businessman? He’s not “black enough.” Big ouch.
“I didn’t know he was a billionaire,” the esteemed Mr. Fenty told Sun Magazine. “Too little money, or too much money can’t make you happy, you need to something in-between. She told me she had a new boyfriend about a month ago, but I didn’t know who he was. I always tell her, ‘Don’t date an entertainer, don’t date an athlete.’”
Wow, it sounds like he wouldn’t be happy with Drake either. Ronald Fenty is a hard man to please. “A friend sent me [pictures] on Facebook of them kissing in the pool,” he said, which sounds like the worst possible thing a parent can say in public. Then he confessed his real problem with Jameel. It wasn’t the allegations of kidnapping or the lawsuits, it was the color of his skin.
“I was looking for someone of color, a darker color, but whatever makes her happy. He’s very tall.”
School is in in session, and Ronald Fenty is teaching us all how to throw shade. That’s got to be the most baller thing a parent has ever said about a millionaire boyfriend.
Rihanna may have bagged herself a billionaire in Spain this week.
But she also walked herself right into a feud with veteran supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Or kissed her way right into this feud, we should say.
On Tuesday, photos went viral of Rihanna making out with someone named Hassan Jameel while the two took a private deep in a pool in Spain.
The superstar and Jameel were only spotted swapping spit, but it was an intense session of tonsil hockey.
In baseball terms, Rihanna and her rumored new boyfriend may have only gotten to first base, but it was a sharply hit, line drive single.
Moreover, who knows what went on behind closed doors between Rihanna and Jameel? Even more layers of clothing may have come off.
Not that Campbell wants to hear about any of this.
The long-time model dated Jameel last year; she was spotted at a Stevie Wonder concert with him during the 2016 Barclaycard British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park.
And it's safe to assume that Rihanna's relationship with her former flame is the reason why Campbell stopped following the artist across all social media platforms.
“Naomi has known about Rihanna dating Jameel for a while and she is furious about them being together,” a source tells Hollywood Life, adding:
"On a superficial level, Naomi feels she’s hotter and more successful than Rihanna, so it’s frustrating to see the photos circulating online.”
That's a superficial to be sure. It's also a simple falsehood.
We can understand why Campbell is pissed, however.
Hassan Jameel is a lot more than a handsome face. The guy is ridiculously rich!
The businessman’s family owns Abdul Latif Jameel, an organization that – among many other ventures – owns the right to sell Toyota Motor vehicles in Saudi Arabia and several other Middle Eastern countries.
In other words: he makes money every time someone in these nations buys a Toyota.
Just how lucrative is this business?
Jameel is reportedly worth around $1.5 billion.
He's also a good person, however, not just a cold-hearted money-maker.
Jameel is the president of the company’s Community Jameel in Saudi Arabia.
This is a a charitable organization that coordinates programs focused on the “social, cultural, educational and economic development of individuals and communities in the Middle East region and beyond," according to the official website.
Asked by Andy Cohen earlier this year about her alleged beef with Rihanna, Campbell shot back:
She eventually said she doesn’t have a feud with anyone, “especially with black women, who are in the same thing and doing the same struggle."
Or doing the same man, apparently.
An insider has told The Sun that this romance is "the real deal," but Campbell isn't buying it.
She's supposedly not all that upset about Rihanna getting it on with Jameel because she "doubts they will last very long as a couple, given their poor dating histories," Hollywood Life writes.
Only time will tell, but we don't really care what Naomi Campbell has to say.
As long as Chris Brown is sad over this relationship, we're extremely happy.
He’s been on SNL. He’s been a backup dancer for Katy Perry. Rihanna is his biggest fan. He’s never, ever smiled (probably). He is: Backpack Kid.
But who is Backpack Kid. Born Russell Horning, he’s that thing that happens right now where things become famous because they are famous. Basically, he dances with a deadpan face, and people think this is wildly amusing. In his defense, I can’t dance as well as him, or hold a straight face as well as him.
Backpack Kid is entirely self taught. He took lessons for a month once but “left because there was too much drama” and because “that class wasn’t very helpful anyways.” It turns out his deadpan face is more than just a gimmick, it’s his mission statement in life. When asked about his early days on Instagram he said, “My old username was Majestic Cat Lover. I know, it was pretty iconic.”
Now he’s got over 730,000 Instagram followers, the endorsement of a backpack company, and calls from other hip-hop artists to appear in their videos. Is this kid getting you down yet? What have you accomplished today? Backpack Kid has struck the viral video gold mine.
Get money, get paid, Backpack Kid. You do a weird thing and people like it. Really, what greater service could you provide to this crazy mixed-up world?

Celebrity domestic violence occurs even in the most seemingly-stable relationships.
Hollywood violence knows no gender, age, or reason, and some of these allegations are gonna curl your toes.
Who dragged his partner with a car? Who beat someone's face in so badly she needed to be hospitalized? Whose own mother and sister accused this superstar, award-winning actor of physical abuse?
Things are about to get real deep and dark in here, so we hope you have a flashlight, a blanket, and a box of tissues, because ugh.
Also, hey, can someone remind these asshats that violence is never the answer?
That could be pretty helpful, all things considered.

Rihanna loves the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James. She loves them so much that she’s willing to get into a beef with Kevin Durant during one of the games. She heckled him during a free throw and he barked at her. But she ultimately had to watch LeBron and the Cavs fall to the Golden State Warriors in five games. There wouldn’t be a comeback this time. She was sad about it and tried to console him with a video on her Instagram. No.. not THAT kind of video! She made a Lion King video where she was Simba, LeBron was Mufasa and Durant was Scar. Yeah. You need to see this.
Durant and LeBron were like Mufasa and Scar, jawing at each other the entire Finals. It’s like KD is undergoing a metamorphosis into a cold-blooded badass right before our eyes. Watch his interactions with the Cleveland superstar – he was NOT backing down at all. In earlier years, he might have deferred. The seeds for that hardened shell were planted when he and Russell Westbrook had some on-court spats during the regular season. Then he proceeded to help the Warriors crush the Thunder like the cockroaches that they are during the playoffs. Now he has LeBron’s crown.
Of course, everyone would love to have a superfan like Rihanna. Usually, when people think of these “superfans”, they tend to picture Kathy Bates’ Annie Wilks in Misery, not someone as lovely as the singer from Barbados. Just as long as she doesn’t suddenly start showing up at LeBron’s house uninvited.
Game 1 of the NBA Finals was last night, and it went about how everyone expected it to go. The Warriors won easily and will likely do so three more times. Not even angry LeBron can slow down this team.
And not even Rihanna can distract Kevin Durant from finally winning his first NBA championship.
— Adam Silverous (@World_Wide_Wob) June 2, 2017
Rihanna, a LeBron fan, tried her best to get in Durant’s head, but we learned last year that this is not the way to do it. You have to be nice to Durant and treat him like he’s your best friend. If you do that, he’ll choke away a 3-1 lead and end up joining you, so there’s less pressure on himself. When will these people learn?
Rihanna made things worse by dabbing.
Rihanna bows to LeBron then hits a dab and small waves a Warriors fan telling her to sit down.
— Adam Silverous (@World_Wide_Wob) June 2, 2017
The dab has been dead since Cam Newton lost Super Bowl 50. Any attempts to revive it are ill-conceived. Using it ensures second place. Good job, Rihanna, you’ve completely sabotaged the Cavs in this series with your heckling and dabbing.
Durant claimed that he didn’t remember staring down Rihanna, but that answer is unsurprising from him. Bet he doesn’t remember this tweet either.

The first Monday in May was a roaring success!
We knew the Met Gala be one helluva night with designer Rei Kawakubo of the avant-garde fashion house Comme des Garçons being the one honored.
Have you seen her designs? Outrageously insane in the best way!!
In case you missed any of the hottest stars walking the major red carpet, ch-ch-check out the highlights (below)!Gisele Bündchen & Tom Brady Are Dressed Perfectly For LAST Year's Met Gala Theme — BORING!

Don't look now, but Azealia Banka is being a rude, aggressive, highly questonable troll!
On second thought, go ahead and look. After all, if you looked away every time Azealia Banks decided to be awful, you'd never get anything done.
Yes, Azealia has a long, long history of being the worst.
But this latest little mess she found herself in?
It's pretty darn bad, even for her.
It all started when Rihanna, like so many people this weekend, felt the need to speak out about Donald Trump's executive order that many are referring to as the Muslim Ban.
"Disgusted!" she tweeted. "The news is devastating! America is being ruined right before our eyes! What an immoral pig you have to be to implement such BS!!"
So that's all fine, obviously, and a sentiment that many, if not most, of us share. But Azealia disagreed. Of course.
"No," she wrote in response. "This is all stupid and wrong. Is she even American??? Can she even vote???"
And she's partially correct: Rihanna isn't American, she's from Barbados, so she can't vote.
She can, however, show compassion and some common human decency. Maybe that's where Azealia is confused.
But whatever the reason for Azealia's issue with Rihanna, she continued her little rant over on Instagram.
There, she wrote "As far as Rihanna (who isn't a citizen and can't vote) and all the rest of the celebrities who are using their influence to stir the public, you lot REALLY need to shut up and sit down."
"Stop chastising the president. It's stupid and pathetic to watch. All of the confused people confuse other confused people."
She added "Hoping the president fails is like getting on an airplane and hoping the pilot crashes."
Oh, and for what it's worth, Azealia believes "The ban on muslims is a precautionary measure."
Rihanna fired back with a photo of herself pouting her lips, writing in the caption "the face you make when you a immigrant."
She added the hashtags "stay away from the chickens," "I heart nuggets," and "save our hens," referencing Azealia's recent scandal in which she bragged about slaughtering chickens in her closet.
You know that crazy Azealia wasn't about to let that go -- she reposted Rihanna's caption and added this mess:
"What Rihanna meant was ... 'I GREW UP PLAYING SOCCER IN A DIRT YARD WITH A COCONUT AND OPEN MY LEGS FOR ANY AND EVERY MOTHERF-CKER WHO I THINK I CAN GET TO WRITE ME SONGS OR BUY ME DRUGS."
"I CAN BARELY PERFORM BECAUSE I LINE MY BROWN BLUNTS WITH CRYSTAL METH AND AM OFTEN VERY WINDED ON STAGE."
At this point, Rihanna realized she was done dealing with Azealia's brand of hateful insanity, so she shared this photo:
She captioned it "The face you make when you screaming in an empty room."
Azealia is still going at it though. She even invited Rihanna over to her apartment for some homemade chicken nuggets!
In closing, Rihanna is a queen, Azealia Banks is terrifying, and why is any of this happening?
In case you probably (totally) forgot about Charlie Sheen’s three-year-old Twitter beef with Rihanna because she wouldn’t hang out with him and his (then) fiancee, Charlie Sheen is back to remind you.
He told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that Rihanna was a bitch, apparently still mad about this shit that happened in 2014. Don’t people usually come out on the other side of a major health crisis with more perspective than a 14-year-old girl?
From Page Six:
“So, I took my gal out to dinner last night with her best friends for her Bday. We heard Rihanna was present as well,” the 51-year-old actor tweeted at the time. “I sent a request over to her table to introduce my fiancee Scotty to her, as she is a huge fan (Personally I couldn’t pick her up out of a line-up at gunpoint.”
Yeah Charlie, we can tell you really don’t give a shit about Rihanna at all.
“Well, the word we received back was that there was too many paps outside and it just wasn’t possible at this time. At this time? AT THIS TIME??” he continued. “See ya on the way down … and actually, it was a pleasure NOT meeting you. Clearly we have NOTHING in common when it comes to respect for those who’ve gone before you. I’m guessing you needed those precious 84 seconds to situate that bad wig before you left the restaurant.”
Charlie Sheen. So above Rihanna that he clearly was not affected by her snub at all. Rihanna responded by calling him an old queen on Twitter and leaving it at that.
Because let’s be real, no one gives less of a fuck than Rihanna.
I’ll bet you $15 Soulja Boy has a new song coming out soon and is tryna scrape his way back into relevance by fighting people on the internet.
That big $15 will probably be more than his upcoming single makes.
Chris brown just called me and said he wanna fight me because I liked @karrueche picture on Instagram this nigga a bitch
— Soulja Boy (@souljaboy) January 3, 2017
If this is real, Chris Brown will be dead in 48 hours. Unless Chris Brown only hits teen girls after all. Nah. He stomped on a man’s head one time. Soulja Boy then told ’em in a series of tweets:
Aye @chrisbrown pull up nigga I'll knock yo Bitch Ass out stop snorting so much coke nigga. FRUITS
— Soulja Boy (@souljaboy) January 3, 2017
That nigga @chrisbrown better not tweet shit with his pussy ass. He called my phone trippin so now I'm trippin Fuck nigga. Fruits!
— Soulja Boy (@souljaboy) January 3, 2017
Chris Brown then called him a snitch via video message.
And Soulja Boy tore him up by reminding everybody that he beat the shit out of Rihanna.
All this because Soulja Boy commented with some heart eyes on his ex-gf’s instagram pic.
Somebody put these kids in time out and take away their phones.
In case you somehow missed the approximately 20 bajillion jokes on social media, 2016 was a rough year.
We lost far too many beloved entertainers; famous celebrity couples dropped like flies, and the American people decided to give the nuke codes to a Flamin' Hot Cheeto with a rage-tweeting problem.
Anyway, 2017 has gotta be better, right?
Well, maybe not according to the world's leading psychics.
Here's what the best-known crystal ball-gazers have to say about the year to come:
1. R.I.P. Queen Elizabeth II, Long Live King Charles!
2. Oprah Goes Blonde
3. Trump Gets Impeached
4. Hillary Clinton: Not Finished Yet!
5. Jimmy Kimmel Might Want to Invest in a Hat
6. Pam Anderson's Love of Animals Will Come Back to Bite Her
The beautiful friendship of Rihanna and J. Lo might be over.
Though Rihanna once gave Jennifer Lopez a pair of “sick ass boots,” Rihanna has now unfollowed Lopez on Instagram. A deeper blow to their friendship has never been felt.
What could be the cause of this shady move? Well, Drake.
Drake and Rihanna were on again and off again for awhile, but he’s now firmly in off again territory because he’s firmly on top of J-Lo.
After their cuddling picture appeared on Lopez’s Instagram, Rihanna’s following disappeared.
No one really cares that their social media friendship has ended, but people are mostly amazed that Drake could get two of the hottest women in one year. You can’t discount his average looks and Canadian charm.

Before Kim’s assault, Star Magazine put out this thing about how much everyone hates her. From the looks of it, other celebrities hate her more than Twitter and hipsters combined.
It’s a good thing Kim Kardashian likes solo selfies, because she’s finding it tough to make friends with her husband’s colleagues. After failing to become BFFs with Beyonce, Kim has been work, work, work, working to get on Rihanna’s good side ever since Kanye West teamed up with RiRi’s beau Drake to make an album – but insiders say the pop star wants precisely nothing to do with Kim & Co.
Rihanna doesn’t have time for that shit.
“Rihanna barely deigns to speak to Kim,” says a source. “Rihanna think she’s tacky and dull and never shuts up about her kids.”
I mean, she’s not wrong.
Kanye has tried to soothe his wife’s bruised ego.
“He says all she and Rihanna need is more time together,” reveals the insider, “but that is the last thing Rihanna wants – she’s asked Kanye to leave Kim at home.”
Rihanna doesn’t give enough of a fuck for this. I respect that.
Well this is something!!
Drake performed in New Orleans on Friday night (above, left) and he didn't just do his Summer Sixteen thing -- he also showed off a little new ink that is VERY reminiscent of something we've seen before on Rihanna!
The Canadian rapper's right forearm sported a new, fresh little tattoo that just so happens to be an exact replica of a special shark tat that RiRi got on her ankle just a day earlier!!
Ch-ch-check out the two up close, and decide just how identical they really are for yourself with Drizzy's on the bottom left, and RiRi on the right (below)!!!
Awww! So adorable!!
It's all a nod to a stuffed toy Drake once gave Rihanna, of course -- but it really al means that AubRih is doing pretty well together!
Matching tattoos are a pretty big commitment, even if they are small! What do U think about the ink, Perezcious readers?!
Let us know in the comments (below)!
The VMAs aren't like other award shows.
But unlike when someone you met on Tinder tells you they're not like other girls/guys, in this case, the claim is legit.
You never know what might happen at the VMAs.
Kanye might interrupt someone's acceptance speech.
Nicki Minaj might call out Miley Cyrus.
Kanye might interrupt everyone's acceptance speeches.
You really never know.
In fact, the only thing that's certain is: there will be some amazing performances.
Check out the gallery below to relive some of the most unforgettable musical moments from 32 years of the VMAs.
1. Beyonce: "Love on Top," 2011
2. Madonna: "Like a Virgin," 1984
3. Britney Spears: "Slave 4 U," 2011
4. Taylor Swift: "You Belong With Me," 2009
5. Eminem: "The Real Slim Shady"/"Way I Am," 2000
6. Diddy, Faith Evans, Sting: "I'll Be Missing You"
Drake just declared his love for Rihanna, but it might be all BS.
The rapper performed at NY last Saturday, and he had this to say about the sexy Bajan diva, “If you’ve got love for Rihanna in New York City I wanna hear you make some noice. Cuz you know I’ve got love for Rihanna [sic],” before going into another set of tunes.
“Drake would make her his girlfriend in a second if he could. It’s more on Rihanna, though. They both care about each other and are having a good time spending time with each other,” a source dishes to E! News.
What’s hindering them: Labels.
“Rihanna and Drake are hanging out a bit more lately. Rihanna loves Drake, but is still not ready to put a title on them.”
Will they make it “work” this time?
More Drake and Rihanna!
Drake and Rihanna are dating again. The end.
Just kidding. There's a bit more to the story than that.
Rumors of romance began swirling earlier this year when the two steamed up the screen with their mad chemistry in Rihanna's "Work" video.
But most of us chalked it up to thirsty publicists trying to create buzz around the track.
Then we received reports that Rihanna and Drake were secretly dating for months and wanted to keep their relationship out of the public eye.
And now it appears that the rumors were true.
An insider tells E! News that the pair are definitely back on.
In fact, the source reports that Drake has always wanted RiRi back, and she's finally softened.
"He still loves her and never stopped," claimed the insider.
"Rihanna is the one that's been not wanting to settle down in the past," the source added.
"They are having fun spending time with each other. Their music together got them close again."
The pair enjoyed a brief romance back in 2014, but it ended quickly because Drake was "too in love."
"He is too in love with her, which has always been the problem," an insider dished. "They have been fighting, but that could change."
Hopefully their love in on equal footing these days and these crazy kids can have a real shot at happiness.
