Rihanna is dominating the magazine circuit this era. After covering ‘Vogue’ for the second time, and stripping off for ‘GQ’s Men Of The Year issue, she scores Billboard‘s November 24th cover! The blurry cover is an outtake from her ‘Unapologetic’ album shoot and features the wig snatching headline ‘The World Is Hers’. Some of her astonishing achievements are listed on it. The best selling digital artist of all time has sold 8.7 million albums and 58 million tracks. Not bad for someone aged just 24, and whom has been around for just seven years!

Rihanna is currently on her ’777′ tour, a flying seven-day trip around the globe that will bring her to intimate venues. The first show kicked off on Wednesday in Mexico, and she played Toronto last night. Today, she plays Stockholm, and tomorrow it’s Paris. On Sunday, it’s Berlin and on Monday, it’s London. Then on Tuesday, her last show will take place in New York which is when the new album drops in stores! [SOURCE]

Rihanna stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres earlier this week, and was asked about her interest in starting a family. Rihanna was then asked if she wants to wait until she is involved with someone before having kids.

“I would prefer to, you know, have a full family. I’m pretty sure I could handle if I had to on my own but that’s not what I’m striving for,” she answered. In addition to appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Rihanna also has a cover spread in GQ magazine’s latest issue.

At times it may seem like super busy Rihanna is in two places at once, but now she can be! A new wax figure of the star was unveiled at Madame Tussauds at the Venetian in Las Vegas on Tuesday (November 13).

The “Umbrella” singer’s lifelike copy wore a semi-sheer, white one-legged leotard with white heeled boots and short red hair as she poses with a microphone in hand. Later in the afternoon, a second wax figure was revealed at the famed museum in Hollywood, CA. In this life-like depiction, RiRi dons a colorful, bedazzled two-piece with bright red hair.

At nine fifteen, Rihanna’s black Escalade pulls up in front of Emilio’s Ballato, Andy Warhol’s Nolita Italian restaurant of choice, a circus in tow. Her army of bodyguards surveys the scene. Then one of Rihanna’s long legs hits the pavement and it’s madness. There are paparazzi everywhere, all at once, perching on bicycles and European motorbikes, firing out of Mercedes-Benz windows and SUV sunroofs, pushing in on every square foot of sidewalk. The cameras strobe around her like a Ferris wheel.

"Skyfall" landed in theaters accompanied by an immeasurable amount of hype last Friday, due in no small part to Daniel Craig's willingness to sit down for countless interviews.

But there are only so many 007-centric questions that Bond can field, so naturally conversation shifts to other topics. In a recent interview with Global Grind, Craig said he believes Rihanna would be a better Bond girl than Beyonce, because the former is "dirtier."

"It's a record that... gives me such a great feeling when I listen to it. The lyrics are very hopeful and positive, but it's about love and... a little different to what people would expect, I think.

Live Nation has recently announced a world tour from one of music's biggest names, Rihanna. Rihanna's 2013 Diamonds World Tour is scheduled to kick off next year on March 8 in Buffalo, NY at the First Niagara Center. The tour will run until May 4 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The Barclays Center seems a fitting location to end the tour due to Rihanna's mentor Jay-Z's involvement with the arena scheduled to open September 28.

The tour will consist of 27 dates in North America in cities. A few notable stops include Boston, MA on March 10 at TD Garden, Hartford, CT on March 15 at the XL Center, and in Montreal on March 18 at the Bell Centre. While Rihanna continues to be a popular artist, it is too soon to tell how well tickets to her will sell. "It really depends on what they set the prices at," explains Jim Holzman, the CEO of Ace Ticket. [SOURCE]

Earlier this week, Rihanna talked to the press about Battleship, her first acting role, in London. She plays Petty Officer Raikes — a weapons specialist who gets a thrill from firing heavy artillery. And the singer admitted she enjoyed working with guns almost as much as her character. Rihanna said: “The one on the boat was so powerful, on the ribs, every time, ugh, I remember. I would come back to the set with black gunpowder everywhere — it was crazy. But it was so much fun. I loved it, every moment. I loved feeling it in my chest.”

Rihanna has history with the military. She joined the army cadets as a youngster in Barbados — and not because of the boys. “I just wanted to join an organisation. I didn’t want to be at school for school work, that was boring. Everything else was kind of not my thing, so I joined the cadets. They had weapons. I wasn’t into boys then.”

Besides facing the normal challenges of the summer box office, “Battleship” has a cast full of young actors, like Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker and pop superstar Rihanna trying to prove their skills in a big-budget movie. In the case of Rihanna, many skeptics turned their nose up at the idea of the singer making the crossover to acting, but her director on “Battleship,” Peter Berg, told MTV News at New York’s Toy Fair that she was a natural. “She was great,” he said. “She has a very strong part.”

Berg insisted that Rihanna’s casting was not as unorthodox as many may have thought, citing a whole host of singers who act. He has even had personal experience helping performers make the transition.”I’ve always believed in musicians as actors. I had great success with Tim McGraw in ‘Friday Night Lights’ and ‘The Kingdom.’ Musicians have been acting since Frank Sinatra won an Oscar for ‘From Here to Eternity,’ ” Berg said.

Our pal Elias from RebelleRihanna went to french presentation of Battleship movie this week. The special guest was Peter Berg – the movie director himself. Elias shared: “Peter Berg presented us the main actors – Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker and of course Rihanna. He said about her: “She’s a really great actress. I really wanted to cast new actors, someone who is not a big movie star, at least not yet. When Rihanna joined the cast she was really excited about her character and her talent did the rest. I think Musicians are great actors. She definitely can act! She surprised me.”“ [READ MORE]

The singer is set to play a US Navy weapons officer in the film Battleship, based on the popular board game of the same name. The movie is directed by Peter Berg, the man behind the 2008 film Hancock starring Will Smith and Charlize Theron. He says Rihanna has a big future on the big screen. “I’ve worked with musicians before and I always expected there was a great actress in Rihanna,” he said. “That’s just from watching her intensity and how hot she is in her music videos.”

Peter Berg, 49, spent four months with the star filming near Hawaii. “For anyone that’s been on a music video set, it’s not so easy to do sexy,” he said. “If it was, there would be a lot more Rihannas.” As for Rihanna’s career in Hollywood, the director said: “Battleship is a small role but she does a great job in it. “If she wants to be a huge movie star then in a year you’ll be sitting here with her talking about whatever her next film is.”
