Rihanna on The Cover Of Paper Magazine’s March 2017 Issue
For her first magazine cover of 2017, Rihanna is up to her bad gal ways for Paper Magazine’s March 2017 issue.
The Bajan beauty kicks off Spring 2017 serving up futuristic vibes on Paper Magazine’s #BreakTheRules issue. The magazine played up Ri Ri’s high fashion and her “chameleon-like powers” for the shoot where she transforms into a clerk in a bodega of the future.
“We thought it would be interesting to put a superstar like Rih in such an everyday surrounding,” said Shannon Stokes, who styled the 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.
Check out her futuristic spread below in threads from Chanel, Ball, Proenza Schouler, Acne Studios. Marc Jacobs and more:
Rih’s issue hits stands March 6th.

#RHoA: Kandi Burruss Fights Back After Porsha Williams Claims She Intended to Drug Her?
CHILE…… The Porsha and Kandi saga continues to get more BIZARRE!
Kandi Buruss and Porsha Williams had one of the most outrageous face-offs in Real Housewives of Atlanta history recently, with Burruss revealing the two shared a late-night dance-floor make out session that prompted Williams to ask if the two could have sex.
But while Williams responded with a series of shocking allegations — including that Burruss had a sex dungeon, had previously been involved in a seven year relationship with a woman, and was currently being cheated on by her husband, Todd Tucker — Bravo editors saved the most outrageous claim for Sunday’s all-new episode.
There, Williams claimed that she had hear rumors that Burruss and Tucker had planned on drugging her and their mutual friend Shamea Morton in order to bring them back to their house.
Both Burruss and Morton denied Williams’ explosive accusation. But the claim was especially hurtful for Burruss — who explained how harmful the rumors are to her reputation.
“That really bothered me because I’ve been in the music industry since I was a kid and people get into the whole drug and drinking thing,” the 40-year-old Grammy winner explained. “I was always determined that was not going to be me, so I take offense!”
“It’s just been boilin’ my blood,” Burruss continued. “Because if she’s out there telling people this mess, that could ruin my life. So I have to let people know that this bitch is full of s—.”
Burruss had her chance to prove her point to Williams and the rest of the Atlanta Housewives when the group went on a trip to Maui, Hawaii, together — with their husbands, ex-husbands, and boyfriends coming around for the ride.
When confronted about the slanderous things she’s said, Williams held firm that she was “not a liar” — telling Burruss, “You were saying some things about me that I felt were lies, and then I felt I needed to come to you with truth. And that’s what I did.”
Williams also owned up to some truths of her own — including that she had, in fact, kissed Burruss and propositioned her for sex.
“We were definitely drinking and you were definitely sober,” Williams said, implying that she didn’t remember the details. “That probably did happen — I was tipsy. So what? Maybe so.”
Luckily, Burruss came with receipts — specifically, print-outs of screenshots of text messages between her and Williams, taken a few days after their hookup. “We was turnt up for real,” Williams wrote in the texts. “I just want you to know, I’m not going to rape you on camera so no worries.”
“She knew exactly what she was doing,” Burruss said, noting how Williams had previously tried to pretend like she wasn’t down with it. “She sent me this text message talking about how much fun she had and how we were so turnt up. We were already out ’til 3 [a.m.] Then she invited us out to the after hours club so that she can push up even more because she was the aggressor. She’s the B in LGBT!”
Williams maintained that Burruss had told someone that she was going to drug Williams and take her to a sex dungeon — and then went on to claim that it Burruss’ fault that that rumor was getting out there in the first place. “Don’t come with me about my business if you don’t want yours told,” she said. “I wasn’t going to tell your business’ til you came at me.”
That didn’t sit well with Burruss — who ended the episode on an aggressive note.
“I will sue your ass if you keep saying it, you lying a– bitch,” Burruss said. “You not even thinking about the fact that I got kids. Don’t try to ruin my life, ruin my business — that type of accusation can sit with you for life. You a big a– liar.”
“She’s not saying the truth,” Burruss added, getting emotional. “And that’s the problem. Let’s be clear — you know, you know that I have fun or whatever. But the one thing I would not do: I would not do some stuff about no drugs or nothing. And for her to put that out there about me? Oh my God — it took everything in me not to choke the s— out this bitch.”

Karrueche Tran Seeking Permanent Restraining Order Against Chris Brown!
Karrueche Tran is putting her safety first by seeking a permanent restraining order against Chris Brown.
If you recall, a judge recently granted Karrueche a temporary restraining order against Chris, but according to TMZ, he’s dodged being served the legal document three times.
According to TMZ: They broke the story, a judge issued the emergency order requiring Chris to stay away from her after she claimed he was threatening to shoot her and also telling friends … if he couldn’t have her no one else could. She also claimed in her legal docs that he brutalized her, punching her in the stomach and throwing her down the stairs. One of her friends also got a restraining order against Chris last week.
Chris has been insinuating Karrueche is lying, but she’s now determined to prove to a judge he’s such a threat he should be given an ultimatum … stay away from her for 3 years, or go to jail.
We’re told Karrueche is preparing her case for a permanent restraining order. She’s not afraid to take the stand and swear under oath: Chris was as violent to her as he was to Rihanna.
Karrueche is expected to come face to face with Chris in court this Thursday.

OH NO! Fantasia’s Husband Was In an Accident & Suffered 2nd Degree Burns
Fantasia’s husband, Kendall Taylor, took over Fanny’s Instagram account to inform fans that she was in an accident.
He captioned a photo of Fantasia in a hospital bed:
Speaking on behalf of my wife: “She walks as a powerful force in the earth. Impacting everything she touches and encounters. I love her determination and sheer will power to not accept defeat on any level. She complains little, but so sacrifices much! But there are times when our Father intentionally slows us down to reflect and hear from Him. My Wife experienced an accident today causing 2nd degree burns on her arm. She’s steady asking the Doc “Can I perform tonight?” But we must be wise and realize this isn’t a race, but rather a marathon. So Memphis, our team is already working to create a means that she can redeem this time with you. She had something truly special planned for tonight. So please, keep my Queen lifted in prayer, asking our God to heal her rapidly with no last negative affects. Rock Soul won’t be denied, this is simply a delay that will prove to be necessary for what’s to come. We love you all and thank you for your understanding and support! #WeaponsMayForm#NoneShallPropser

Alabama Theatre Bans “Beauty And The Beast” Over A Homosexual Character
A drive-in theater in Alabama has released a statement via Facebook letting customers know that Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast movie will not be getting any airtime at their establishment–but guess why?! Apparently they disagree with the movie having a homosexual character and refuse to give in to companies who attempt to force their views on them.
According to the film’s Director, Bill Condon, Gaston’s eccentric sidekick, LeFou (Josh Gad) will stand as disney’s first ever LGBTQ character. The theater’s statement came not too long after the spilling of that tea!
“When companies continually force their views on us we need to take a stand. We all make choices and I am making mine,” the statement read. “For those that do not know, Beauty and the Beast is “premiering” their first homosexual character. The producer also says at the end of the movie ‘there will be a surprise for same-sex couples’. If we can not take our 11-year-old grand daughter and 8-year-old grandson to see a movie we have no business watching it. If I can’t sit through a movie with God or Jesus sitting by me then we have no business showing it.”
It seems as though the theater went under new management back in December. It may be possible that old management may have been here for the modern viewing of the Disney Classic.
“As of December 16th the Henagar Drive-In is under new ownership. Movies scheduled prior to that date and four weeks after this date were not scheduled by the new owners. That being said…It is with great sorrow that I have to tell our customers that we will not be showing Beauty and the Beast at the Henagar Drive-In when it comes out.”
Before thanking customers for their support, they let them know that they are first and foremost Christians and will not compromise on what the Bible teaches.
Check out the full statement below:

We are first and foremost Christians. We will not compromise on what the Bible teaches. We will continue to show family oriented films so you can feel free to come watch wholesome movies without worrying about sex, nudity, homosexuality and foul language. Thank you for your support!”
Thoughts on these Hypocrites?
FBI director James Comey asked Justice Department to refute Trump’s wiretapping claims
Over the weekend Donald Trump embarrassed himself, and his administration when he accused former President Barack Obama of tapping his phones at Trump Tower before the election, without providing any evidence to back his claims. FBI Director James Comey has reportedly asked the Justice Department to PUBLICLY deny any truth to Donnie’s claims.
According to the New York Times, James is urging the Justice Department to refute Donnie’s claims because it makes the FBI look like they broke the law. So far the Justice Department hasn’t released a statement in regards to Donnie’s outlandish allegations… but are you surprised?
“A statement by the Justice Department or Mr. Comey refuting Mr. Trump’s allegations would be a remarkable rebuke of a sitting president, putting the nation’s top law enforcement officials in the position of questioning the truthfulness of the government’s top leader,” Time magazine explains. ” The situation underscores the high stakes of what the president and his aides have unleashed by accusing the former president of a conspiracy to undermine Mr. Trump’s young administration.”
