Pop singer Rihanna seems to be at a crossroads in her life. After releasing her first single, "Pon De Replay," at the tender age of 17, she has worked nonstop on the road touring to support her 7 albums. Her hawt body and keen fashion sense draws stares and compliments from males and females alike. But her infamous temper and personality disorders have combined to make her the loneliest girl in the world -- literally.

To promote her platinum album, LOUD, Rihanna's camp hatched an idea to bring a widely read urban blogger out on the road with her to document Rihanna's life behind the scenes.

The blogger was one of Rihanna's personal favorites (if not her most favorite). Rihanna once told a label exec that reading this blogger was one of her guilty pleasures. She confessed that she was "turned on by the negativity" even as she railed against it publicly.

So when that blogger turned down Def Jam's all expenses paid invite to join RiRi on tour, Rihanna took the rejection very hard.

At age 23, Robyn Rihanna Fenty is chronically single, desperately lonely and wealthy beyond her wildest dreams. Her friends -- including her ever-present and calming life force, Melissa -- are all bought and paid for with some of Rihanna's millions.

It is on this backdrop of despair, loneliness and fear that Rolling Stone magazine paints a raw, revealing look at Rihanna's personality disorders, hidden demons, and her life after Chris Brown.

On the cover of this week's Rolling Stone (on newsstands Friday (April 1st), Rihanna looks disapprovingly over her shoulder at photographer Mark Seliger's camera. She wears delicately tattered, barely there shorts made of a fragile material called chainmail -- tiny metal squares inked together to form clothing that looks almost painted on.

She told her 4 million followers on Twitter.com that before she put the shorts on she had to heat up the cold metal links with a blow dryer.

"I hate the sound of metal on metal. And if something isn't even, it weirds me out – like if my girlfriend hits me on the right side of my butt, it feels numb on the left," Rihanna says, revealing her obsessive compulsive disorder for the first time. She admits to habitually cracking her knuckles and she's a compulsive boob-grabber.

On lifting the restraining order against Brown:

"That's my decision It doesn't mean we're gonna make up, or even talk again. It just means I didn't want to object to the judge. We don't have to talk again ever in my life. I just didn't want to make it more difficult for him professionally. What he did to me was a personal thing – it had nothing to do with his career. Saying he has to be a hundred feet away from me, he can't perform at awards shows – that definitely made it difficult for him. That was the only thing it was going to change, so I didn't care. But you can never please people. One minute I'm being too hard, and the next minute I'm a fool because I'm not being hard enough."

On her song "S&M" and experimenting obsessively with sex toys:

"I like to take charge, but I love to be submissive. Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun. You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge of your shit. That's sexy to me. I work a lot, and I have to make a lot of executive decisions, so when it comes to being intimate, I like to feel like I'm somebody's girl."

"I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned – you gotta stop [and go] get the whip from the drawer downstairs. . . . I'd rather have him use his hands."

Troubled singer Chris Brown just moved into a luxury condo last month, but his new neighbors already wish he would move.

According to Radar Online, Brown, 21, is very disrespectful of his neighbors who live in the 2 year old condo on Fountain Avenue in West Hollywood, California.

Brown paid $1.6 million for the 3,000 square foot, 3 bedroom penthouse which occupies the two top floors. The condo boasts stainless steel appliances, an open floor plan, 10-foot ceilings, a spacious patio with "incredible city views" and direct elevator access. Its listing brags that the condo is "A perfect place for entertaining."

But his neighbors aren't entertained by the loud racket caused by Brown and his friends who come and go at all hours of the night.

“He just moved in around a month ago and he’s already received a warning," a source told Radar Online. "The tenants are just really worried – if he’s like this straight off the bat, they wonder if it's going to get any worse."

“The building isn’t meant to be some kind of party house," the source continued. "Residents don’t want that and they don’t want to live in that kind of environment. The tenants are complaining about him and the noise he’s generating, they’ve even had to give him at least one warning. He needs to keep the volume down – people are sick of his behavior.”

“Chris Brown is a problematic tenant, to say the least,” the source says. “He has his posse traipsing around until the late hours of the night, he’s loud and totally disrespectful of his neighbors. He’s driving the other tenants in the building crazy."

Why didn't he just buy a house instead?

Yesterday, pop singer Rihanna excitedly retweeted a message from a rabid follower who announced that her Minneapolis show had sold out in just 68 minutes. The apparent sell out comes after reports surfaced that Rihanna's U.S. concert dates were selling slowly. Too bad Rihanna didn't check with the Target Center in Minneapolis before posting that tweet.

According to the arena's website, tons of tickets are still available for Rihanna's June 16th concert with featured guest, Cee Lo Green. Now Rihanna is looking pretty dumb... again.

And, oh, by the way, a loyal reader just sent this...

The news came as a shock to friends of Corey McGriff, better known as DJ Megatron. The popular BET 106 & Park DJ was found lying face up in the street in the early morning hours of Sunday near his Staten Island brownstone.

According to police, McGriff was on his cell phone with a male friend when he was accosted by 3 unknown males who shot him in the chest and fled the scene on foot. The unidentified friend told police that McGriff said he was on his way to buy weed when the phone went dead. The friend said he didn't hear a gunshot.

Police confirmed the 32-year-old DJ had been walking when he was shot once in the chest, but a motive has not yet been established. McGriff's cell phone was found near his body.

According to the NY Post, McGriff had $1 in his jeans pocket when he was found dead in the street. His bills had apparently been paid by a "female gal pal."

The shooting may have been witnessed by McGriff's 4-year-old son, who, wide awake at 2 a.m., stood in the doorway of McGriff's brownstone and watched his father cross the street as the 3 males approached him. The boy had been left home alone.

Twitter has a new star joining its ranks. The Bronx Zoo's missing cobra joined Twitter yesterday, and he already has over 35,000 followers. Worried zookeepers don't know how the wily cobra slipped out of its enclosure in the reptile house on Friday, but the poisonous snake doesn't plan on being recaptured any time soon.

In addition to keeping the zookeepers off his trail, the cobra humorously narrates his adventures while on the loose in the Bronx.

After the Bergdorf Goodman store invited the @BronxZoosCobra to visit, it tweeted, "If I recognize a single belt..."

For its part, the zoo is working overtime to find the snake and restore confidence in an alarmed public. In a statement released yesterday, zoo director James J. Breheny noted, “We understand the interest in this story and that everyone wants us to find the missing snake. As this may take days or even weeks, daily updates should not be expected.”

R&B Diva Keyshia Cole was spotted yesterday arriving at the same Beverly Hills medical building that celebs often frequent. The building houses doctors offices and a pharmacy. Celebs photographed leaving the medical center in the past include the late Michael Jackson, Halle Berry, Whitney Houston, Ciara, Diddy and Usher, among others.

Keyshia had mentioned in the past that she was thinking about getting her ample breasts reduced to lessen the load on her lower back. The part time Johns Creek, GA resident is gearing up for a special live performance on April 30 at the New York EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women. Keyshia has a son with NBA star Daniel "Booby" Gibson.

Just days after shocking photos of a stricken and pale Beyoncé surfaced online, comes word that she has fired her dad, Matthew Knowles, as her manager.

Most of us thought she fired him already. But, according to Bey's longtime publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, the termination is for real this time.

The news comes a year after scandalous reports of Matthew's infidelity, money laundering and drug abuse hit the blogs. In addition to Beyoncé, her sister Solange and their half-sister, Kelly Rowland, Knowles is also the daddy of a 1-year-old boy by actress Alexsandra Wright ("Scrubs").

Matthew released a prepared statement last night complete with shameless self-promotion, which I have deleted since no one cares:

The decision for Beyoncé and Music World Entertainment to part was mutual. We did great things together, and I know that she will continue to conquer new territories in music and entertainment.

In Music World's repositioning it will not continue its label/management role with Columbia/Sony artist Tiffany Evans.

Business is business and family is family. I love my daughter and am very proud of who she is and all that she has achieved. I look forward to her continued great success.

Maybe now Beyoncé can get her stalled career back on track?

Pregnant songstress Mariah Carey is bored waiting for her twins to be delivered so she can exploit them to the world. So she painted a butterfly on her swollen tummy and tweeted the pic to her 4 million followers. That was after she tweeted about her false contractions and dramatically rushed herself to the hospital only to be sent back home yesterday.

I fear for these babies when they are finally born.

At one time Beyonce Knowles was the reigning queen of Pop -- until she stumbled and was forced to give up her crown to Rihanna. Apparently she has never fully recovered from that public humiliation. Slowly, the paparazzi who once famously stalked Bey, stopped showing up at her appearances. Now I'm told that Bey's people frequently call the wire services with Bey's schedule, but to no avail. The paparazzi just aren't interested in her any more. These pictures surfaced online over the weekend. They show a pale Beyonce with no makeup walking to her waiting limo with her loyal bodyguard, Julius. These new pictures have ignited old rumors that Beyonce is ill. I hope she's okay.

Socialite Paris Hilton, 30, posed with a black baby at the Starlight Children's Foundation 2011 "A Stellar Night" Gala in Century City, CA over the weekend. Hilton is still reeling from accusations of racism after shocking quotes attributed to her from an upcoming book surfaced online last week.

According to the LA Times, a book entitled "Everyone Loves You When You're Dead: Journeys Into Fame and Madness" by Neil Strauss contains an encounter he had with the party loving heiress in 1999. Supposedly, Hilton met a biracial guy at another party the previous evening.

Hilton pointed the guy out to Strauss and said, "We were making out, but then we went somewhere where it was bright and I saw that he was black and made an excuse and left. I can't stand black guys. I would never touch one. It's gross." When Strauss asked Hilton, "How black does a guy have to be?" she allegedly responded, "One percent is enough for me."

Remember the days when pop singer Rihanna was wholesome and classy and would never strip for the cover of a national magazine just to sell records? Well, apparently those days are over.

Rihanna, 23, poses practically naked on the cover of this week's Rolling Stone magazine, which hits newsstands on Wednesday (Mar 30). The artsy photos were shot by famed photog Mark Seliger exclusively for RS.

Rihanna's management is still scrambling to dispute news stories that suggests Rihanna's tour is not selling well in the U.S. Why is it so hard to believe that she's not selling tickets here? It's no secret that here in the US Rihanna is known more for her looks than she is for her singing ability.

She may be hawt overseas, but here in the U.S., she simply doesn't pack huge arenas -- even if she poses half naked on magazine covers.
