Rihanna named creative director for Puma

Yodeling singer Rihanna has a new source of income now that her albums are no longer selling like they used to.

According to published reports, the 26-year-old Bajan was named Puma’s new creative director. That’s not the same as being a spokesmodel or the new face of the Puma brand. Rihanna actually has a 9-5 job with the sportswear giant.

From MTV News:

So, um, Rihanna has been named creative director of Puma. While there were rumors circulating last month of a deal being inked, the news was confirmed this morning by WWD and Puma. Rih is going to oversee the women’s line, and will help “customize classic Puma styles as well as create new styles to add to the Puma product portfolio,” Puma revealed today.

Rih teased the news on Instagram this morning, captioning this photo, “Hello #PUMA.” Man, this explains why she was so into Germany at the World Cup, eh?

I wonder how other, more qualified job applicants feel about a high school dropout taking food out of their children’s mouths.

      She makes any darn thing look good so I can see the logic behind it, but they were just better off having her as an ambassador as opposed to a creative director. Cuz lets be real, she doesn’t dress herself.

      :lol: they will still have a real “creative director”. there is no way that Rih is going to a 9-5 in germany or anywhere for that matter.

      I seriously doubt there was an application process for Rih to pass thru in competition with other applicants (with children to feed nonetheless). girl, you so crazy. :lol:

      Kathie Lee Gifford Revisits Her Friendship With Bill Cosby: ‘He Did Try to Kiss Me’
      ETonline
      Antoinette Bueno 1 hour 58 minutes ago
      Kathie Lee Gifford is the latest woman to share her private experience with comedian Bill Cosby.

      While discussing Cosby’s wife’s Camille’s recent statement calling her husband “a kind man, a generous man, a funny man, and a wonderful husband, father and friend,” despite the numerous sexual assault allegations against him, the Today show co-anchor claimed that Cosby tried to kiss her one of the last times she saw him.

      “I will admit, towards the very last times I saw him, he did try to kiss me,” she said on the Today show Tuesday. “I said, ‘Bill, no, we’re friends,’ and he said, ‘OK, goodnight,’ and I said, ‘Goodnight.’ And I went to my room, and he went into his room.”

      “A lot of married men come onto single women, … but once I said, ‘No, absolutely not,’ he respected it,” she later added.

      NEWS: Bill Cosby Speaks Out, Addresses Media

      Gifford explained her personal history with Cosby, serving as the opening act for the comedian for several years and traveling on the road with him. She said that he was capable of “great kindness,” and recalled how he would give her and her two backup dancers money to gamble.

      Though she is now looking back at her experience in a different light, specifically after reading supermodel Beverly Johnson’s recent Vanity Fair story alleging the comedian drugged her.

      Johnson claimed that Cosby drugged her with a cappuccino, and Gifford remembered that the comedian frequently made cappuccinos for her and her two backup dancers.

      “I do know that I got a chill [reading Johnson’s story], because every night when we’d come off stage and Bill would be going on-stage, he would have made cappuccinos for all three of us,” she said. “And I always thought it was such a kindness and it was so sweet, and now you see Beverly Johnson saying that he made her a cappuccino, and I just don’t want it to be true, but I’m not saying that the women are liars.”

      She stressed, “I’m just saying I never personally saw it with my own two eyes.”

      On Monday, Camille Cosby broke her silence on the allegations against her husband of 50 years, calling him a victim.

      “There appears to be no vetting of my husband’s accusers before stories are published or aired,” she said. “An accusation is published, and immediately goes viral … None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim. But the question should be asked — who is the victim?”

      Bill Cosby’s daughter, Evin Cosby, defends dad, slams rape accusers: ‘He is the FATHER you thought you knew’

      The 38-year-old released a short statement defending her comedian dad Tuesday. It followed a string of bizarre, rambling posts on Facebook earlier this month that dismissed her father’s accusers and their stories, including one that read, ‘You can remember the whole damn day but you were drugged?’ The 77-year-old Cosby has not responded to the more than two dozen rape accusations against him.

      Bill Cosby’s daughter is sticking by her dad.

      Evin Cosby released a short statement Tuesday supporting the 77-year-old comedian — a day after her mother, Camille, did the same.

      “He is the FATHER you thought you knew. The Cosby Show was my today’s tv reality show. Thank you. That’s all I would like to say :),” the 38-year-old said in a statement to Access Hollywood.

      Earlier this month, the Los Angeles-based boutique owner posted a series of rambling Facebook messages also supporting the elder Cosby and dismissing the more than 2 dozen women who accused him of sexual assault.

      The accusations go as far back at 1960. Many of the women claim the legendary actor drugged and raped them — a detail Evin Cosby challenged.

      There are only two possibilities: 1) He drugged and raped them, or 2) He didn’t.

      At this point whether a civil case is filed or not we can’t look at him the same. And that’s unfortunate. And if he did commit these crimes paying money to a settllement will not heal or vindicate these women. They waited too long for ultimate justice. When I was young an adult woman used to play with my dangling part—I brought it up once as a teen she looked at men silly, made me feel delusional. I realized in my earlier 20’s that I will never get over that by conversing with her–there was nothing external that could help me…or these ladies–it takes dicipline and self-motivation to get over old assaults that continue to hurt.

      *jacked from LSA:

      The fresh faced politically controversial actress, who calls herself a Black Conservative, posed it up on the carpet. She was recently featured in Net-a-Porter fashion magazine The Edit talking about her rough up bringing and political stance:

      “I had to be tough to survive. I come from nothing, so other people’s opinions don’t scare me.”

      “When I get hateful tweets, I just re-tweet them and then my fans pile in and attack the haters while I sit back.”

      And she also revealed her family, including cousin Dame Dash, no longer speak to her because of her public outspokenness against President Obama and controversial opinions about race.

      “My family and I have not spoken. My cousin Damon and my brother [Darien, CEO of DME Interactive Holdings] were role models to me because they were great capitalists. Now we’re not really talking because they were the ones who told me to keep my mouth shut. They felt that I should do certain things because I’m black.” She pauses.

      “Certain friends don’t speak to me any more either. But you know what? In the street I get [approached by] so many people of every color saying: ‘Thank you so much for standing up and being so brave.’ I thought it was time to have a black president and that it would unite us in such a profound way. But as a country, I don’t think we’ve been so divided since the Civil Rights Movement. I mean, isn’t it extraordinary that we are even discussing race in 2014?”

      Yes, Stacy. It IS amazing we’re still talking about race in 2014. And we will continue until we stop pushing racial strife under the rug as if it doesn’t exist. Food for thought.
