Rihanna and Chris Brown
Rihanna and Chris Brown Party in St. Tropez at the Same Time » Gossip - There are a number of pop culture conspiracy theorists who believe that Rihanna and Chris Brown are still seeing each other on the down low. Some of them must be feeling pretty smug this week, as both singers are currently vacationing in the French Riviera. Coincidence? Considering what Rihanna's been tweeting these days, we actually think not.
Also in music news, Rihanna's been partying with Magic Johnson, Snoop Dogg's gone reggae, Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace has opened up about her transition from male to female, and much more.
• Rihanna's life has turned into the ultimate booze cruise in the past week or so. These days she's having a bikini ball in St. Tropez, where she and friends have been spotted giddily posing in their bikinis aboard their yacht. No big deal, except she might have gotten a very special visitor onboard: Her supposed ex, Chris Brown, who is sporting platinum blonde hair these days. How very Sisqo of him.
Brown landed in St. Tropez with rapper Ludacris on Sunday, announcing his arrival via Instagram. Within an hour, Rihanna had tweeted, "Touch down baby, help me pick out my fit." Hmm. There's also the fact that Brown did not appear to be in the company of his longtime girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.
Rihanna and Brown shocked their fans earlier this year when he contributed a few NSFW verses to a remix of her track "Birthday Cake." Sometime thereafter, Brown released a remix of his own that included the lines, "Don't f**k with my old bitch, it's like a bad fur / Every industry n***a done had her," prompting RIhanna to unfollow him on Twitter.
Still, Brown spoke up some weeks later when Rihanna's grandmother Dolly Braithwaite passed away from cancer last month, writing "Praying for family and the lost loved one. She was like my grandmother. LOVE YOU GRAN GRAN! RIP."
• In less depressing news, basketball great Magic Johnson hung out on Rihanna's boat over the weekend. On Saturday, he tweeted, "We had a great time hanging with Rihanna & her friends on her yacht."
Obviously, Johnson's tweeting is nowhere near as spirited as his kitty counterpart's.
• Also, Rihanna looks amazing on a jet ski.
