Bad girl Rihanna is sporting a new look or wig rather. The singer is currently filming the video to the single ‘Pour It Up’ and opted for a Marilyn Monroe inspired look.


Rihanna has been vocal about the influence Ms. Monroe has had, stating in the song  ‘Love Without Tragedy’:

Red lipstick, rose petals, heartbreak ….I was his Marilyn Monroe

No word on when the video will be released. In the meantime, the singer hits the road as the European leg of ‘Diamonds World Tour’ kicks of in Spain on May 26. In other news…


The Dream isn’t ready to give up on marriage just yet. The singer and producer (born Terius Nash) was married to ‘The Voice”  correspondent, Christina Milian, in 2009. The couple split shortly after the birth of their daughter, Violet, in 2010. That year, The Dream admitted to being suicidal and depressed over the breakup. Recently, in an interview with S2S magazine he dished on the possibly marrying again and how marriage changes people. Peep the excerpts below.

On If He Would Consider Marriage Again:

Of Course! I like the idea of it. I think it’s more so just about a certain type of maturity that comes along with it. I can have kids with her, chill out, that’s my girl we woo-woo-woo, whatever it is, and get all of the same things that you get when you’re in a relationship when you’re married to someone. It probably didn’t work years ago I don’t know I wasn’t there.”

On How Marriage Changes A Person:

It’s like they get into this place…It’s like when marriage happens it’s not everybody ,it’s not every men, it’s not every women but that word marriage changes who they are immediately. You’re not that forgetful and forgiving and it’s just like, “We fought all the time when we were boyfriend and girlfriend and we never broke up.” You have a good fight when you’re married and it’s like, “I’m out of here. Peace!” It’s like it gets more fragile when it’s supposed to be stronger.”

The Dream’s album ‘IV Play’ which features appearances from Beyonce and Jay-Z lands stores May 28. His ‘Light’s Out’ tour with Kelly Rowland kicks off in Kansas City on May 24.
