Rihanna ‘Sick on VIP Table’

Rihanna ‘Sick on VIP Table’

Posted by Adam

Tuesday September 25, 2012

RIHANNA is a classy girl… not.

According to a new report, the singer vomited at her VIP table on a night out in Las Vegas.

The Umbrella hitmaker was partying with pals at the 1 OAK nightspot in the city after her performance at the iHeart Radio concert over the weekend when the celebrations became too much for her and she struggled to control herself before throwing up into a napkin.

“She threw up in a napkin. The guy with her handed her a white towel to clean up,” a source said.

However, the incident didn’t ruin the 24-year-old star’s night as she carried on and was later spotted heading to notorious strip club Spearmint Rhino.

Meanwhile, Rihanna will reportedly be the inspiration behind Stella McCartney‘s next collection.

Stella, 40, met the singer two years ago and are now thinking of collaborating on a fashion range.

“They have been having regular chats,” a source said.

“They call them ‘mood calls’. Stella rings Rihanna and asks her to explain what has influenced her mood that day — colors, textures, patterns.

“Stella feels she needs to tap into a younger generation and Rihanna is happy to help. It’s a bizarre way to create a fashion line but they work well together.”

Kristen Stewart Talks About Difficulties of Fame in British Vogue

Following a cheating scandal that played out in the media, Kristen Stewart is speaking out about her life in Hollywood.

In the October issue of British Vogue (available Sept. 10), the Twilight star appears on her first magazine cover since her affair with married director Rupert Sanders was revealed.

The actress, who will soon attend the Toronto Film Festival to promote the upcoming film On the Road, spoke candidly about her public persona.

“I know if you haven’t thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself, it can seem like you lack ambition,” the 22-year-old actress says of how she’s often perceived. “But, dude, honestly? I can’t. People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing you want and making lots of money out of it.”

“But, you know, I’m not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, ‘Okay, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?’ I wouldn’t know who that person would be!” she continues. “It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can’t.”

Appearing on the magazine’s cover in a Gucci dress, Stewart’s glamorous look is a far cry from Marylou, the character she plays in the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s largely autobiographical novel.

“The world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I’m fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn’t alive then,” she says of the beat generation.

“It’s the loyalty aspect of it all. I love being on the periphery with a group of people who have the same values that I do,” she says. “People who don’t get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive.”

Olympic TV Coverage: The Winners and Losers

The XXX Olympiad, also known as NBC’s Summer Televisiad, is now halfway to its Aug. 12 conclusion. Apart from the athletes, who and what are the winners and losers?

Winner: director Danny Boyle

I wasn’t wild about his attempt to wed British pop whimsy to stadium-sized spectacle in the grand opening night – the only resonant image for me was that giant sleeping baby – but millions certainly loved it, and the ratings were the best ever for the ceremony. If it inspires bigger artistic risks in future Olympics openings, it will have been worth it. The next time a U.S. city plays host, someone please recruit Quentin Tarantino.

Loser: Ryan Seacrest

Viewers are used to the fact that the American Idol host has the determination of a gold medalist to build and burnish his career. So why was his presence in NBC’s coverage a faint but distinct irritant? His interviews were exactly what you expect from Seacrest, who like his role model Dick Clark is scrupulously inoffensive. Maybe it’s that an interview with Michael Phelps shouldn’t feel tonally identical to one with Jennifer Lopez.

Winner: The Royal Family

The photogenic appeal of the young generation – Prince William, his wife Kate and his brother Harry – was put to full promotional use at a number of events, and there was the queen’s granddaughter, Zara Phillips, on the equestrian team. The Queen herself proved to be a good sport, participating in a filmed gag with 007 Daniel Craig for the opening night. (Who knows? Maybe a succession of Bonds – Sean Connery, even George Lazenby – have floated through her daydreams over the years.) Well done!

Loser: Badminton

Eight women from China, South Korea and Indonesia were sent home after they deliberately tried to lose as a positioning strategy for later matches. The footage of their blatantly lackadaisical performances, with hearty boos from the bleachers, is the only Olympics event I’ve seen that looks as if it were shot for a Christopher Guest comedy. China took home all the gold medals, anyway.

Winner: Archery

On camera the event boils down to … 1) The archer poised to let the arrow fly, 2) The arrow lightly thwumping into the target and 3) a surprising number of oohs and ahs from viewers – the sport popped as the summer’s breakthrough in cable ratings. The going theory: Thank the phenomenally popular Hunger Games. U.S. archer Khatuna Lorig, the five-time Olympian who trained actress Jennifer Lawrence for the movie, competed in London but failed to score a medal. The trend should hearten the CW, which will be introducing an archer superhero with this fall’s Arrow.

Loser: Twitter

Under the hashtag #NBCfail, the social network produced an army of 140-character assassins infuriated by the network’s prime-time delay of the games – what they consider an imperious disregard for the realities of instant news dissemination in the Internet Age. (NBC was also criticized for such infelicities as editing out a key stumble by Russian gymnast Ksenia Afanasyeva.) I think it’s exciting to see Twitter flexing its muscle – and having a lot of rambunctious fun doing it – but the fact remains that NBC’s ratings were through the roof. A reminder that, although the dinosaurs died out, while they lived they ate whatever, whenever and wherever they liked.

Michael Fassbender in Prometheus

What’s hot, hard, and runs on Windows XP or higher? It’s robots of course! Our artificially intelligent friends have been heating up screens both large and small with their lab-crafted good looks for decades. They may not have feelings, but then again we’ve always been attracted to emotional unavailability. From Weird Science‘s Kelly LeBrock and Jude Law in A.I. to Jeri Ryan in Star Trek: Voyager and even that Svedka Vodka ad, you don’t have to be well versed in C++ or QBasic to appreciate the sizzling appeal of these machines!

Ridley Scott’s latest epic Prometheus opens wide today, starring Michael Fassbender as hunky android David. We haven’t seen it yet, but we think he’s definitely in the running for one of the hottest robots in pop culture history. But there are so many to choose from! Check out the gallery below for our list of the 20 sexiest robots of all time. With hot bots like these, who needs humans? Did we miss any? Disagree with our ranking? Let us know in the comments!
