Pop singer Rihanna is always searching for "new, energetic" fashion that makes her feel excited.

In the past the 29-year-old singer turned to the bottle or drugs to fill that empty void inside her.

“I get bored really quickly,” she admitted to Instyle.co.uk. “I have A.D.D. (Attention Deficit Disorder), even when it comes to fashion, so I always want to find something new, energetic, something that provokes something in me that’s exciting. There’s the greats, and they’ll never not be great, but you always want to find the next.”

Rihanna was honored for her fashion achievements at the 69th annual Parsons Benefit in New York earlier this week. Parsons acknowledged the Bajan native's bold strides in the areas of performance, design, and fostering social good.

She has been richly rewarded with collaborations for brands such as Puma, Topshop and Chopard, and fashionistas admire her daring outfit choices.

    I love her style of fashion

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    My best friend looks happy again ?. I don't like anything she's wearing though.

  • Cheese eggs

    At least she's moved past the "look at my tits" look. Or the " I'm basically naked " look.

  • MrTomalu .

    The jean outfit made me laugh. lol

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    LOL so Tyler Perry called Monique and extended the olive branch and she basically said stick that shyt up ya azz! Dayum! I was rocking for her but dayum Nique!!! That's some cold shyt!!

  • Yoni7

    She's so preggars!

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Agreed. Her career is done!

  • Kanyade

    but who be the pappy? that is the question. lol

    So you saying she basically traded one addiction for another? Addiction is addiction...shopping, eating, gambling, etc...

  • Quitedeliteful

    I was really rooting for Mo'Nique too but that big mouth of hers is just won't let her be great. Tyler Perry can give her non-stop work but she gotta be a loud mouthed dumb-ass. Maybe she would be happy parking cars or something....

  • Quitedeliteful

    That denim top makes me nervous -- like it's about to slip down at any minute...

  • Quitedeliteful

    I wonder who the baby-daddy is... Could it be... Drake???

  • Yardgirl

    Mo is blocking her own blessings!! I saw her stand up years ago, during the "Skinny Bitches are Evil" stage of her career and she was hilarious. Maybe she is saying eff Hollyweird and is going back to doing stand up. Cos her career is DOA!! Dayum.

  • Simone

    Weeks ago, Daily Mail posted pictures of Rihanna and she was out of shape, for her anyway. She is wearing clothes 5 times her size because she gained weight. When her body is tight & toned for her standards, she'll be back in sexy clothes, which I prefer on her. The way-too-baggy look died in the 90's.

  • Tiffany

    She is def preggers. Everybody is getting pregnant though. What's goin on with that? ?

  • Youngblood

    It's something different about her.shes been really laid back

  • NovemberFling

    Considering the exploitative and stereotypical movies and television shows TP puts out, do you think it's a good idea for any black people to work for TP? TP has amassed hundreds of millions off the backs of casting blacks in stereotypical roles and then paying them peanuts. I'd say that Monique isn't missing much. Wasn't it Tyler Perry who made disparaging comments about the black race because we wouldn't support his all white television show on TNT? Tyler Perry is no Robin Hood and Monique will be fine. Just because someone apologies when THEY feel like apologizing doesn't mean you're obligated to accept their apology. The problem with black people is that we want the easy way out and anything is good enough for us. That shouldn't the case and people need to stop telling Monique to shut up. We have stood for nothing for so long that we're willing to fall for anything. I applaud Monique for speaking out and standing up against those whitewashed bullies. Everybody isn't suited to play the groveling negro role.

  • NovemberFling

    Monique just did a sold out show at the Apollo Theater. I think people are forgetting that Monique's FIRST passion is comedy and she is still selling out comedy shows. Her career as a comedienne is far from done and the way they're cheating black actors and actresses in Hollyweird out of fair wages compared to their white counterparts, then I am more than positive Monique could give a damn about ever acting in a film again. Her dignity and soul is intact, and I'm sure that is good enough for her.

  • Kanyade

    it's their season to birf babies, i suppose. i have an idea on the pappy, if indeed she is preggers. but i'ma keep it to myself and nope, not Drake. lol

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Looks like she is channeling Lisa Bonet. when she was hiding her pregnancy with the baby now known as Zoe Kravitz

  • Yoni7

    Stay tuned......

  • Yoni7


  • Yoni7

    Hey Lady!

  • Please Stop The Madness

    And I am tired of that style of shoe in first pic. She been wearing that style kid you not since 2009 almost continually but different colors. Give it a rest. Yes classic is classic but Im tired of it.

  • Rayne

    A 4X tho?

  • Faithz

    These pieces are all Comfort fit, for
    big and small body types.

  • Angela Winbush

    I Love RiRi!!

  • Faithz

    This is creating a unique look. I much better see her doing Fashion than on her Social Account Fighting with People.

  • Faithz

    Off Topic ..A close Friend of Comey says Comey has a story to tell
    and that The Orange man (Trump) should be scared...

  • thaye

    Report yourself to the time out corner

  • tt

    This outfit looks cumbersome

  • A D N

    Too much going on in that design. It looks like it's confused and need to hide away flaws...shade...

  • NovemberFling

    Don't be disrespectful.

  • A D N

    She probably doesn't like shoes and prefers to be barefoot.

  • NovemberFling

    Where are you people getting that Rihanna is pregnant when she was seen drinking glasses of wine at the Academy Awards and in the second picture, she has a glass of wine in front of her. Stop reaching. That girl isn't pregnant. It's called becoming a has been.

  • stav

    I absolutely adore that oversized 80's era double breasted suit on her, the jewels , the red lips , the wavy hair .. I dig it all, with the exception of those white shoes. I don't care how expensive they may be , white shoes Always look cheap to me, with the exception of all white tennis shoes.

  • Tee Tee

    The blue jean outfit I really didn't like that on her. Now the second look is adorable on her. She gets it right majority of the time, I rock with Rihanna!

  • Yoni7

    To who? You? pfft....

  • Joy Diggs

    Didn't Karruche wear something last week similar to the Rhiannas oversized jean jacket? I think it was khaki though.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    I was like now THAT will do Nique..saddle down girl..smh..welp hope her stand up keep the lights on for her...

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Girl I would have accepted the apology and moved on...nope Petty Davis had to go there smh...

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Stick a fork in it...

  • Blak

    Why is Rihanna all of a sudden exclusively wearing oversized clothes? She looks like a bloated mess and she is always covering her stomach in photos as of recent. I called it first!

  • Cheese eggs

    Lol...she's just getting fat. Hey.....it happens

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Ri-Ri has put on some weight within the past few months. I think she's expecting! Not my business to ask who the pappy may or may not be, none the less. Congrats (if applicable) Ri?

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Hey chica???

  • Vegas1989

    Keep me posted

  • Vegas1989

    The Khaki suit looks like the one Oprah wore back in the day when she started her talk show.....LOL....Don't Judge me...LOL

  • Junkanoo

    The French think A.D.D isn't real and has to do with poor diet and lack of excerise their not prescribing ridilin to their kids. Rihianna like so many of us try to fill the void with material goods it never lasts and your right back needing more. I think we forget to nurture and feed our spiritual self and it throws us off balance ,we're hybrids not just human but spirit also.

  • Renee26

    I'm going to search out how to get in contact with her and send her a custom piece...I'd like to see if she will wear it

  • Renee26

    Rihanna was styled in an oversized men’s tailored suit by design icon Donna Karan.....for Professor Klump

  • Renee26

    It was a coat dress...high low style...only the color is similar

  • Renee26

    Chris you say?? He's gaining weight too

  • Jeanine McNeal

    I'm wondering if she's just growing up? I'm in my late 30's and can appreciate clothes that don't pinch my pretty thing ??

  • NovemberFling


  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I don't know about her being a fashion icon or anything, but she has the perfect arched foot for them shoes!

  • YellowSauce

    I think its metabolism time ... it kicks in around her age

  • Quitedeliteful

    I don't think Black folks want the easy way out at all. I do think that TP was offering an olive branch and it is her choice to accept his white flag or not. I just think that for someone who is appears to be bitter about being black-balled in Hollywood she should think before speaking. She doesn't have to grovel at all. If she wants to spend the rest of her career on the chitlin circuit then that's fine. A lot of people like Monique - me included - but Hollywood is run by rich, white men and none of them are extending a hand to her. She may think that Tyler Perry is full of it -- and he may very well be, but if she wants to work in Hollywood anytime soon she should play the game, however insincere that game may be, until she gets back on her feet again. Now, if she doesn't care about being employed in Hollywood then that's a different story -- then she should tell 'em how she really feels and keep it moving.

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Possibly, mines started around age 25?. I have to hit the gym 3-4 times per week to maintain??. Lol

  • Quitedeliteful

    She's got money so I guess she can tell Hollywood to kiss her azz but if she wants to work again she better change her strategy. I would've accepted his apology (even tho in my mind I woulda cussed him out royally) so she could get her foot in the door, start doing movies again and then move away from him and on to bigger and better directors/movies. Sometimes we get so emotional we don't think. Telling him to suck her dyk and the rebuffing the olive branch he extended to her ain't gonna get her no movie roles....

  • Rayne

    ??? cause I'm seeing it in my head lol

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Luv Pitties

    Will Melissa ever want something more or is she willing to grow old hanging onto Rihanna's every move??

  • Tea??

    From what Sandra says Melissa and Rihanna have a thing going on low key. Can't say I'm mad at that though, Rihanna is my woman crush ?????

  • Allihave2say

    Yes as did Kim Kardashian the day before the "robbery" and neither of them look cute in this style. It's a horrible look.

  • Yardgirl


  • Reina1718


  • Kanyade

    Lol. Nah, not him, either.

  • http://www.nicolaloves.com/ NicolaLoves

    So we're all pretending that she's not pregnant?

  • Alwayshonest

    I love how low key she been lately
    Hope she working on sum music

  • 2telldatruth

    Rihanna has been looking Tuuuurrrrribbbbble lately! I don't think I have EVER seen her look so bad. She looks sad, depressed, old, she just doesn't look like herself!!!! Rihanna is the type of beautiful that doesn't even have to try but it's like she's trying on purpose NOT TO BE BEAUTIFUL! I hope it ain't the twins!

  • Lady_Elle

    I love Rihanna's fashion sense...
    I do get the preggers vibe from her.
    I hope she is not... but it is her choice. :-)

  • Tammie Reed

    I will be SO glad when those off the shoulder jackets, shirts and tops GO out of style, can't stand that sloppy oversized look! Argh!

  • dontgetblocked

    She's preggers. That woman loves to run around showing her goods. I wonder who the father is?

  • IamAllnatural

    Maybe she'll slow down if she is pregnant

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    That suit looks stupid just because a "designer" made it doesn't make it cute... In fact it looks like DK ran out of ideas and just put some mess out... She could've easily went to the men's big and tall department in Kmart and bought a oversized tan suit for $50 lol

  • NovemberFling

    What Chitlin circuit do you speak of? Sold out shows at the Apollo? That's a Chitlin circuit? Some of the greatest comedians performed in that venue on that stage (Moms Mabley, Richard Pryor, Red Foxx). You ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe not being apart of Hollyweird and its Satanic politics is quite alright for Monique? You ever stop to think that her love of stand up and doing stand up is good enough for her? That maybe she's NOT trying to star in any movies or kiss any movie writers, producers, directors ass? That maybe the Oscar that she won and being the ONLY black comedienne to win that award with Robin Williams being the first comedian before her......that maybe Mo has came, saw, and conquered all that she needs to in the Hollywood that you covet? Playing the politics just isn't Mo and you know what's so good about that? By the grace of our creator, Ms. Monique is STILL able to eat. Had our black leaders and heroes just shut up and kept it moving, then you and I my dear, wouldn't even have the privilege to access the internet and form any form of dialogue. It's time out for taking the easy route. It's time out for remaining silent. It's time out for accepting any treatment irrespective of how inhumane and offensive it may be to us just because we were born black. Monique has a voice and she's using it on her platform. Those who don't like it can tune out, check out, and don't attend her comedy shows. Until then.....Mo is gonna talk and those who appreciate her are gonna listen.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Yeah, basically Tyler tried to be an adult and pick up the phone and call her because she bitched and moaned, and instead of acting her age and being professional she decided to go blab her mouth again. She's gonna have a hard time finding work in Hollyhood. I know she's doing stand up, but comics get burned out on the road and try to get into acting to have more stable lives and income, so basically she's going backwards.

  • Faithz

    This has the details you love, and the comfort fir you can adore.

  • Faithz

    Sassy look in a dressed up Jean look.

  • Faithz

    I think Melissa is on Rih Staff, just saying.

  • Faithz


  • sunni_daze

    I don't like this or that brown paper bag she wore the other day.

  • Tynamight

    Only JESUS can fill voids.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Nope... The Apollo is certainly not the chitlin ciruit -- though it does still exist -- and has been very lucrative for those on the come up from what I read.... Monique has plenty money and she does have a following so she's gonna be alright for sure... I'm just curious how she's gonna navigate in Hollywood IF she's still interested in movies etc. It's will be very interesting to see what her next move is other than standup...

    God I love her hair! This is so cute on her. Always versatile


    Speak ??

    She is such a cute little girl.

  • 4RGSpot

    Not a good look. Way too much material. It doesn't go with her beauty.
