Rihanna went live on Instagram for 45 minutes during the premiere of her Bates Motel episode last night (March 20th). She commented her own acting in the show and interacted with fans by answering questions.

Rihanna plays a Marion Crane who is a modern version of the character, one who fits perfectly, and specifically, into Norman Bates’s ever more rapid descent into madness — and one who was customized for Rihanna’s casting.

“I think the fun thing about television is that you’re in the tailoring business,” showrunner Carlton Cuse says. “If you’re doing your job well, you’re writing your show to fit the person that you’ve cast. We knew we wanted to do Marion Crane; we just didn’t want to do a carbon copy of Janet Leigh. We were thinking a lot about who we could get, and then the Rihanna opportunity popped up, and it was like, ‘Oh, this is the perfect solution.’ She has such a different vibe and is so contemporary and so strong and so engaging. Once we knew it was Rihanna, we executed the script with her in mind.”

Tune-in at 10 ET/PT for Rihanna’s second appearance as Marion Crane on March 27.

Rihanna’s “Love on the Brain” has reached the top five on Billboard Hot 100, becoming her 22nd top five hit! “Love on the Brain” bumps 6-5 on the Hot 100, hitting a new peak. The song is Rihanna’s 22nd top five hit, breaking her out of a fifth-place tie with Elvis Presley (who tallied 21 top fives after the Hot 100’s 1958 inception; his career predates the Hot 100, as he first hit Billboard charts in 1956). The only artists with more top five Hot 100 hits than Rihanna:

The Beatles (29)
Madonna (28)
Mariah Carey (26)
Janet Jackson (24)
Rihanna (22)

Airplay continues to drive the ballad most heavily, as it keeps at No. 3 on Radio Songs (107 million, essentially even week-over-week).

Rihanna unveiled her third FENTY x PUMA collection on Monday evening at Paris Fashion week (March 6th). The theme for her Autumn-Winter 2017-2018 ready-to-wear collection was back-to-school “Fenty University” and was held at the National Library of France.

Her Autumn-Winter 2017-2018 ready-to-wear collection debuted in a “Fenty University” themed show, set at the National Library of France where study tables functioned as runways. Fenty X Puma released a teaser of the show on Sunday, where the sentence “I will not be late” appeared repeatedly followed by a “detention card” detailing the time, date, and place of the show

For the first time ever Rihanna went live on instagram during the fashion show, streaming live from backstage and making final adjustments to the models.

PAPER MAGAZINE – It’s been almost ten years since Rihanna first graced our cover back in August 2007. It was right when she’d released her explosive third album Good Girl Gone Bad featuring the smash single “Umbrella.” Back then, just like her album’s title implies, Rihanna was at a turning point in her career, starting to break out of the glossy, pop princess mold and find her voice and her unique sense of style. “[Good Girl Gone Bad] really represents my liberation,” she told our writer Bevy Smith at the time.

In the decade since, she’s certainly found that freedom. She’s dropped five more albums, including last year’s hit Anti; was named CFDA’s Fashion Icon of the Year in 2014 (and accepted the award in that unforgettable, crystal-studded see-through Adam Selman gown); designed two Fenty Puma collections with the athletic brand (and will debut her third in Paris on March 6th); received the MTV Video Vanguard Award last August; and even traveled to Cambridge, MA, earlier this week to accept Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year Award. And, amidst all this, what’s nearly as remarkable as her creative and professional accomplishments is the fact that she’s remained the cool, DGAF chick who will bring a bedazzled flask to the Grammys and often returns home to Barbados to don a bejeweled bikini and feathered headdress for carnival.

Now, the woman who can do it all is lending her talents to Hollywood; she’s part of the all-female Ocean’s Eight cast, starring alongside acting heavyweights like Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway. For our spring #BreakTheRules cover, our team took inspiration from her budding acting career and chameleon-like powers of transformation to cast her as a high fashion clerk in a bodega of the future. “We thought it would be interesting to put a superstar like Rih in such an everyday surrounding,” says Shannon Stokes, who styled our shoot alongside Farren Fucci. “And Farren added the ‘future’ angle to give it a twist, so it became a challenge to envision what a girl who worked there might look like,” he added.

Today (Feb. 28), Dior announced its partnership with Rihanna’s Harvard award-winning nonprofit organization, The Clara Lionel Foundation.
