Chase & Status have revealed that they could feature on Rihanna’s next album. The duo said that they recently met up with her to discuss producing songs for her next studio LP. Will Kennard said: “We hope so. We saw her recently and caught up with her at the O2 a few months ago and we talked about it then. She’s always looking to write on interesting sides of music. It’s just finding the time really, we’re still artists as well as producers.”

Chase & Status previously collaborated with Rihanna on 2009′s “Rated R” and her latest record “Talk That Talk”.

ONE night with Rihanna really isn't enough for her Sydney fans with the statuesque pop princess announcing a second show at Acer Arena on March 5. With her new record Loud debuting at No.3 on the Australian charts this week, it's no surprise her March 4 concert at the arena sold out.

Promoter Michael Coppel also announced British DJ Calvin Harris - who is in town this weekend for the Stereosonic festival - will warm up the crowd with LA club crew Far East Movement, who are riding high in the charts with their hit Like A G6. [SOURCE]

Nicki Minaj is a very good rapper, and over the past few years she's used mixtapes and guest appearances to let everybody know it. Both formats suit her, the same way sketch comedy suits some actors better than leading roles. She's funny, and surprising, and sometimes she leaps from voice to voice with showy speed — a Barbie-inspired chirp gets followed by a Caribbean growl, following which she's just a tough girl from Queens, following which she's English, or crazy, or an evil twin she calls "Roman Zolanski."

That range leaves her sounding unhinged and dominating at the same time, which is usually a fun combination. More important, it turns one of the obstacles to her work — being a woman in a job almost exclusively done by men — into an opportunity. The average male emcee doesn't have access to the same number of poses Minaj does: She can roar and spit the way her peers do, but they can't necessarily bat their eyes and drop into coy, teasing voices like she can. Sometimes, next to Minaj, they seem a little penned in by their own masculinity, while she can perform any role she likes — right down to the Day-Glo wigs, bizarro fashion, and Betty Boop facial expressions that have endeared her to the pop world.

'A lot has evolved since then,' Rihanna tells MTV News of the time between Rated R and the upcoming Loud.



In the year since Rihanna released her dark, moody Rated R album, she has re-emerged as the dance-tinged, Caribbean-flavored pop singer her fans grew to love. And her November 16 release, Loud, certainly mirrors that evolution, revealing a girl who overcame a number of personal issues to get back to a smiling, confident hitmaker.

"A lot has — I won't say changed, but a lot has evolved since then," she told MTV News. "A lot of growing up, a lot of responsibility in terms of taking control of my business and stuff like that."

If just like me you haven’t been to Rihanna’s latest tour or if you’d love to watch the concert again, be sure to SIGN THIS PETITION! Rihanna said:

“We’ve never done a tour to this capacity. The production is unbelievable and the costumes, we just took it to a whole new level. Visually and sonically it’s going to be a big step up from the last time. We just keep growing, and this time it is a massive production that I cannot wait for.”


Then why not to release a DVD? Def Jam Recordings, SRP Rercords, Rebel One and everyone else who is involved with Rihanna, please do something about it, it would mean the world to us.

Sign the petition and ask all yours friends to do the same! Bloggers, other Rihanna fansites owners and everyone else: please spread the word! Here you can read all signatures (almost 1000 already!). The paypal donation is not a part of the petition and it’s not required to participate. It’s auto-created part of iPetitions website and has nothing to do with the project.

Rihanna shows off her legs for days while shooting her new music “Te Amo” music video in Paris on Thursday (April 29). Anthony Mandler, who has directed over a dozen of Rihanna’s videos (”Russian Roulette” and “Disturbia”), will once again be at the helm for this vid.

“Thanks to all of Rihanna fans for the long list of suggestions,” he tweeted. “We’re gonna follow our instincts and give you guys something special.” Rihanna’s next concert is on Saturday in Hamburg, Germany! FYI: Ri is wearing Giuseppe Zanotti Design lace-up boots.

London hasn’t had the best of times recently as far as divas are concerned, with Whitney Houston having more than a problem or two at her O2 shows. But fear not, for there is a diva heading in this direction who is tearing her way through Europe with a gig that definitely won’t have people leaving early.

Rihanna, still only 22, delivered a high-energy show in Paris spanning her four albums, featuring elaborate sets and costumes that would make other singers envious. The young Barbadian has an impressive back catalogue to choose from on her Last Girl On Earth tour, strutting around a car wreck for Shut Up And Drive before straddling the cannon of a pink tank and writhing between dancers dressed as monsters for Disturbia.

She was a little stiff from a rib injury, but the odd drop of the shoulder and swing of the hips gave a glimpse of what she will be capable of when fully fit. Her vocals put Whitney to shame on Hate That I Love You and Rehab, before she switched things up a gear after a brief break for a costume change. Don’t Stop The Music, SOS and Take A Bow got the French crowd jumping before a medley encore finishing with Umbrella made sure everyone was there until the very last beat. If this is what she’s like only half fit, then people won’t be feeling short changed when she plays at London’s O2 Arena on May 10 and 11.

Rihanna met up with Travis Barker on Monday (March 22) for a little “Rockstar 101.” The Blink-182 drummer posted the photo above and had this to say: “Teaching Rihanna some things on drums. She JAMS!!!!! Watch out for her!!”

Could they be working on a rock remix of her No. 1 hit “Rude Boy”? The two previously collaborated on an “Umbrella” remix.
