Honestly, how many perfumes can one celebrity release in a year? It seems only a few months ago we were chatting about Rihanna’s latest fragrance – Rebelle, and before that, her first foray into the perfume market in which she called her debut fragrance Reb’l Fleur. Now she has unveiled her most recent scent named Nude and appeared, appropriately for Rihanna, almost nude but wearing some scanty nude coloured lingerie with a flesh hued sheet wrapped about her important bits.
And as all celebrities, who have something to flog, take to Twitter to supposedly talk directly to their fans, she gave her fans an exclusive heads up with this message: ‘Here is my new add for a brand new fragrance #NUDE !!! Make sure you smell sexy, especially naked, this fall.’ The 24 year old Barbados-born recording artist also sported a brand new hair do, especially for her new advert which featured waves of platinum blonde locks tumbling down past her shoulders. The bottle for Nude is exactly like Rebelle but in nude colours instead.
Rihanna may have more than 26 million followers on Twitter, but her fans are not liking the rumours that are circulating about her and her ex boyfriend – Chris Brown, the guy who was charged with assaulting her in the year 2009, and has recently been seen sporting a new tattoo on his neck which caused some controversy as some said it was disrespectful to Rihanna. Chris Brown has been talking about Rihanna after he confirmed he had split from his current girlfriend Karrueche Tran, saying, “Is there such a thing as loving two people?” He added that he didn’t want to hurt her as a result of his ‘friendship’ with Rihanna.
Rihanna has spent three nights running in his company, including attending a concert of Jay-Z’s in New York with him. And Chris Brown was spotted leaving the Gansevoort Hotel in Midtown Manhattan after visiting Rihanna on Wednesday last week. In typical Rihanna style, she has dismissed concerns about a possible reconciliation with Brown, tweeting on her Twitter page: ‘Ain’t nobody bidness….. But mine and my baby!’ However, close friends of Chris and Rihanna are said to be concerned about them getting back together, with a source close to the couple telling RadarOnline.com: “Chris and Rihanna just love the drama. They know their fans don’t support them getting back together, and that it’s a terrible PR move since Chris was convicted of beating Rihanna. However, this is what Chris and Rihanna thrive on. There are still major trust issues that Rihanna has with Chris, with good reason, he was hooking up with her while he was still dating Karrueche. Chris and Rihanna back together in any capacity is just a disaster in the making.”
But not everyone is against the possible reconciliation. Rihanna‘s dad recently spoke to In Touch magazine about the couple. “I know they love each other. They always have,” Ri’s dad added, “She’s happiest when she’s around him, and as long as she’s happy, I am happy and the whole world should be too. I think everyone makes mistakes and they shouldn’t be held to them forever,” Ronald says of Chris, who assaulted the “Diamonds” singer in 2009. “Everyone should be forgiven once. There’s a lot more to Chris than the whole world knows. I love Chris, man,” Ronald admits. “He’s got so much charisma. And he’s always had so much respect for me. That’s what I love about him. He’s always shown me respect.”
Rihanna’s Nude will be available from November 2012.
