Plus-size singer Rihanna wowed the crowd at the World premiere of the film 'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets' at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California on Monday.

Rihanna, winner of the CFDA 2014 Fashion Icon Award, wore an off-the-shoulder pink tulle couture gown by Giambattista Valli Couture and lace-up Manolo Blahnik heels.

Rihanna stars as "Bubble" in the Sci-Fi action thriller that also stars Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen and Ethan Hawke. The movie is based on the comic book series and is set in the 28th century on a planet inhabited by a thousand species from all over the universe.

Delevingne, pictured right, plays Laureline, a special operative assigned to help maintain order throughout the human territories. As you can expect, there has been grumbling among real actors who object to Rihanna and Cara grabbing plum roles in big budget movies.

    Damn Saundra! She called Ri plus size. Lol smh ???

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Thick Robyn just happened so fast. She still fine as hell. IDGAF if she a size 20 (which she is not)

  • Fiona

    I'm not going to take the bait, Sandra really knows how to rile people up. I'll just say Rihanna's shapely, toned, slender figure looks great in that dress.

  • Kanyade

    Plus-size? She looks pretty in pink. :)

  • morenYAHdelsur

    She's stacked though! LOL

  • Roderick2011

    You know jilted lovers like Sandra have to throw some shade.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Rihanna is so overrated. And Cara looks like an ugly man, and her make-up is terrifying.

    And what's up with the finger waves??

  • Victor Nathan

    Auntie Sandra definitely don't know what men want....seeing those legs alone, you don't need any little blue pill.

  • Jen_no_juice

    When did Rihanna become considered plus size???

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Plus size where?

    Issa hater...

    If Rih plus size I am definitely obese lordttt Sandra stawppp please

  • Alisa

    If she is plus size then I wanna be plus size. If you can't see a person's collarbone does that mean your plus size?? Screw the labels folks act like she out here looking like Grimace (sp) That pink tooth fairy/princess cotton candy dress wouldnt look good on anybody.

  • Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    God is good. Rihanna and I are in the same weight category. Not feeling fat anymore...I feel pretty...

  • Please Stop The Madness

    If Rih plus size I am definitely obese


  • Yardgirl

    Oh Miss Sandra got jokes today!! RiRi is gawjuss!!

  • Joi Williams

    PLUS SIZE...... Please so that must make YOU OBESE HUH?

  • Athena Panagakos

    PLUS SIZE!? Man alive!?????The shade of it all. Auntie is in a mood, I guess.?

  • Nia

    Plus size, Sandra. You can't help but hate. ???????????????

  • Miami8981

    I still believe the weight gain is from psychotic medications and not just "eating good in the neighborhood". If so, good for her for addressing her mental illness problems. A lot of people in her line of work have these issues partly because fans tend to "celebrate" them when they absolutely should not and they develop an ego that surpasses reality and it creates an illness of the mind. Of course, when the mind starts to believe the hype it can create a huge bubble burst when reality and truth finally does set in. Good for her for addressing her issues.

  • Athena Panagakos

    Cara's hair needs help. That picture is gonna give me daymares.??

  • Quitedeliteful

    Rihanna looks pretty but can she act???

  • Quitedeliteful

    The woman next to Rihanna looks like a robot...

  • Keisha Hannah

    Plus size huh? Lol

  • Jenny Monroe

    Plus size my ass ?

  • RespectSelf

    Plus size must be click bait bc if anything folks are going to want to comment on the unnecessary shade thrown at Riri.

    I think she looks nice with the few pounds she put on.

  • Quitedeliteful

    That Cara doesn't even look human in that pic!!!!

  • Cheese eggs

    Sweet Mary mother of Jesus.......the shade??

  • hotntot95

    That part about the "real actors" getting salty about Rih getting big it ain't enough to go around...tell ya agents to get up earlier ...apply yourself...?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Lol plus-size where??

  • Miami8981

    I think this is an old pic or maybe she had her stylist recreate it. She had on an almost identical light pink dress with the tie up heels last year. I am no one's fan so I won't go searching for the pic. Just happened to see this same outfit last year.

    And why are pics of Mary J. Blige circulating looking white girl drunk?Stress is a muva. Take care of yourself MJB.

  • KLo

    the only thing plus size is Sandra Rose .

  • 19awesomegrl97

    lol not plus size singer?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    She's meh...good in small roles with a small script. Watched her in that trash ass movie Battle Ship and she was meh

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Damn we gain a lil weight and now we plus-size lol

  • Fiyah Blaze

    Sandra you are such a fuckin hater wit your FUGLY ass... Rihanna is not a plus size but YOU are bitch ...... you always have something to say about the pretty girls ...... with your unhappy ova weight FUGLY ASS ????????????????????????????????

  • RespectSelf

    why she gotta be stress to get drunk lol

  • SumthinSweeter

    What mental issues?

  • Guest©

    I just hate when our fellow women put one another down. Instead of using the word "plus size", the adjective that should've been used is beautiful. Nice to see a woman comfortable in her own skin.

  • RespectSelf

    while I'll be the first admit that shade was thrown.... all of this though smh. The internet got folks way too gassed saying stuff that they wouldn't say to folks face. Calling folks B's and more on the internet like people didn't something to you is crazy lol

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    You tryna 'fat shame' this healthy young woman 'cause she standing next to a shapeless mannequin who looks like the 'cafeteria lady' by the head?????? Yet Rhi still slays, smh. You funny Sandra!

  • Lisa daniels

    And that's just her head.

  • NicoleZee

    She's nowhere near being plus size!!!!! Plus size is much much bigger than that. I doubt Rihanna would ever allow herself to become obese, she has an image and brand to protect.

  • Jeanine McNeal

    I would love to see RiRi pair with a new stylist. Once I got older and my shape wasn't a 4 anymore I needed to look at different styles of clothing to compliment me.

  • Anunnaki

    Plus size in British white folks standard huh, , must be a 2, 4, 6. to be considered healthly , fit, lean, gawjus, beautiful, perfect, CHILEEEEEEEE

  • LibraGirlonly

    This dress is not attractive. ??

  • Khaliah

    Sandra just loves the negative. If there's anything negative out there, she will find it and shine a spotlight on it!!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Right though? I read that and was like daaaayuuuum! They truly went off the deep end, didn't they? I could see if that was actually Rihanna responding back to her then it would be understandably justified since SR always throwing shade at her. But just a random person commenting? Yikes... It's not that serious.

  • Benita Renee’
  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    People seem to forget it was 2005 when she came on the scene with her first hit song. She was 17 then. I don't know any woman who has the same body at 29 that she had at 17.
    Yes, she's filled out a little bit over the years, but that's normal. She still looks good to me.

  • Fiyah Blaze

    Sandra .....I would say put your picture up but you won't bcuz EVERYBODY will roast yo funny looking PLUS size are the wrong person to talk shit bruh.....???

  • Vegas1989

    Let me grabbed my sunglasses with all that shade she just threw...LOL

  • Vegas1989

    I agree...I can't get in them size 2 no more...but I'm getting back into my 4 and 6....I'm older but the weight is coming off but I'm not buying no more clothes...

  • CookieMobster

    That is a terrible thing to say. GTFOH with that mess. Sandra I beautiful!!!!!!! She should block you from viewing this page.

  • MsPam

    Ms.Sandra gives us a new post, we all know you're kidding about RiRi!

  • RespectSelf

    Serious question: why do people say this and use the sunglasses emoji when referring to shade??? You don't need glasses in the shade lol... mater of fact you can take them off.

  • NeverSurprised

    Lol. Sandy, you know you need to stop.

    Anyone with a brain knows you aren't serious about the "plus size" thing, but I do want to address the issue of RiRi's acting. Anyone who has a problem better get used to it. As I said months ago, Rihanna is on her way to becoming a HUGE international film star (mark my words ). No one had a problem when SINGER Justin Timberlake started getting co-starring film roles, so why can't with Rihanna do the same? If she can co-star with Oscar winner Sandra Bullock, she sure as hell can hold her own against the folks in this film.

  • MissHarlem
  • Quitedeliteful

    That's what I thought....

  • Quitedeliteful


  • RespectSelf

    She even landed a role in Ocean 8... sure to be a big hit

  • NegraGata

    See the MAJOR SIDE-EYE Rihanna is giving SR for calling her "plus size"...that made me literally LOL!!!

  • Tammie Reed

    I'm cracking up at the "plus size" title Sandra is so shady but anyway, I LOVED her Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 Couture tulle gown! Pretty in Pink!

  • deadellamore

    "PLUS SIZE"...really? Why must black women put each other down. You should be give this girl props for what she has accomplished, especially in an industry that still treats us like second class better!

  • Benita Renee’

    Say that!!!

  • NeverSurprised

    When I was a young girl sunglasses were called shades because they provide SHADE for the eyes when it's 's too sunny outside, hence the use of that emoji to convey the word "shade."

  • softness1

    Plus size???!!!! Where!!?? I guess I'm mammoth size then... lol

  • Goodii2Shoes

    welll.... the plus size singer is "WHY" u ppl get treated like second class citizenry. (or partially why, bc the gullibility and illiteracy/lack of education are easily the top reasons...;0)

  • starbright9449

    She's actually thinner now than she was back then.

  • hotntot95

    That needs a push up

  • Goodii2Shoes

    I love when people tell it like it is :D... fat is fat; like the one that called her the "ultimate nxggerbxtch" in the dutch magazine lolltfh #truthHurts ;) Fat ri or Skinnyrobyn either one can make anything look trashy.. I mean manolo & valli & it looks like used tissue with her in it :D smh

  • starbright9449

    Sandra I remember back then when you used to big up Rihanna and would say she came and stole Beyonce's shine. Well look at this pic when her body was the baddest, you didn't call her plus size then. She's actually a lot smaller now but u call her plus size.

  • Bossy704

    I am going to get dragged for this BUT Rihanna would be considered plus size in the modeling world. You just have to be bigger than the standard size to be plus size. We know she is nowhere near a 14 but she has thickened up and looks FANTASTIC.

  • BaileyBlue17

    You need a beach umbrella for that shade!!!

  • Renee26

    My boo RiRi is FAr from plus sized....the hate is real

  • Harley

    Love Rhi but not the dress. Cara ...dont see the fascination with her.

  • Renee26

    Good thing she's not a model....they typically aren't even a size 4 which RiRi wasn't even at her smallest

  • Harley

    the owner does it as click and bait. she has no morals

  • Renee26

    Yep...we still call them shades where I'm from

  • Harley

    Stop feeding into the plus size statement. Its a click and bait site :/

  • ShWa

    Plus-size Rihanna huh Sandra, LOL u are tew much with the shade.

  • Nita

    Plus size...really smh


    She's getting thicker , but plus size no!!!! The other one looks stoned.

  • Nathan Hastings

    Cara is a horrible actor and so is Rhi...

  • Peter Piper ATL

    U ain't never lied

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Rayne

    I'm a six up and down soaking wet. So now I'm obese. Ooh ok

  • Insane Taco Juice

    I'm kind of curious about her size but as a current member of Team Chunk, the camera does add lbs. Ri may only be an 8/10.

  • Miami8981

    Paying her EX $30,000 a month. MJB said she out here working so hard as if she were brand new and just got in the business. Yes, stress is a muva.

  • NegraGata

    The person who asked the question may not have any relatives that lived before 1990...j/k - but even I forgot why they were called shades, but I know the term fits the situation.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    This bish is flawless.

  • chozen

    ...and last time I checked, the owner, by appearances should not be criticizing anyone about their looks or weight. Baiting with a side of hate.

  • ohplease

    I think the higher ups that Rhi works for want her to loose weight so they use the media to shame the celebs into dropping the pounds. I don't think this strategy will work in Rhi's case

  • Harley


  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!


  • V Dubb

    Stop Sandra!!! Look you know she isn't plus size

  • Blak

    Lawd does Rihanna even check a mirror? did she fire her hair stylist??

  • HalleMerry

    She was actually thick when she came out,got skinny,now she's thick again.She is beautiful either way.

  • Allisha Jackson

    Y'all know Auntie wants to eat Riri Box...she meant looking like a extra plus size cupcake! LOL

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

  • SummerBaby

  • stacee

  • Fiyah Blaze

  • Desiree Edwards

    plus size is 16-28--she's not a 16 not any way near!

  • jayroe44

  • Faithz

    ROTFLMAO, Plus size, Omg.

  • Faithz

    Rih is looking like s Boss Lady
    hands down to me. And Rih knows
    that Thin is in, But Fat is where it's at
    Wink, Wink.

  • RespectSelf

    an opinion isn't talking shit.... I'm all for difference of opinion... It's the unnecessary disrespect that is too much lol

  • Faithz

    Yea , she has truly come from the
    bottom up to where she is, and she's still
    burning the midnight oil.

  • Faithz

    I heard that Auntee have me Lol so hard.

  • Faithz


  • Faithz

    Sound good to me, Just as long as she don't trip, fall
    and mess that Gown up.

  • Faithz

    Yea Auntee love Rih Flavor of tea, and she know all is well in
    love and war.

  • RespectSelf

    right! I get them being called shades. I was just thinking of the concept of someone throwing you shade and no longer needing your shades because of all the "shade" that was thrown....

  • Faithz

    That's okay there are many who will support their
    Efforts Regardless.

  • YellowSauce

    depends on who you ask ...
    for me plus size is a 10
    for fashion designers plus size is a 4
    for white girls is a size 6
    in the lane bryant size chart its 16
    but for Ri who is usually a size 2 for sample sizes
    she may be considered plus size ...
    it really depends on who you ask lololololol

  • TeeTee

    she was not bigger in the above pic. Ri now has hips, thighs, and that azz is sitting right (too bad not on my face)

  • starbright9449

    Rih ain't gonna give a damn what they say, how they think or feel. Before 'thick' and big booties were in Beyonce and Jlo had a hell lot of lusting over them. Having a curvy figure is embraced even more now so why they going after Rih???

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    She's not plus size and if she was there's nothing wrong with that, she looks good with or without the thickness.

  • Fiyah Blaze

    I am just voicing my opinion as well.... what's the problem ?

  • Linda Smith

    She is not a plus size. WTF is that standing beside her?

  • Faithz

    No one wants a bone but a dog.

  • dontgetblocked

    She's on her way to the big lady sizes. She's 5'9 so she's already hovering near a 12. Those big legs tell the story and the fact that most of her body is covered up, especially the arms and that gut.

  • dontgetblocked

    She's hovering around a 12 or 14. Her height hides a lot of the weight.

  • Fated4greatness

    Rihanna is gorgeous as usual. That white girl is ugly. She should have gotten a pedicure for them ugly ass feet, too. #thatisall

  • XoXo

    This is really disturbing to body shame her. You don't even know if she has a medical condition as to why she gained weight. Shame on you.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I bet she's less of a bitch now that she's gaining weight.

  • Meme

    ohhh Rihanna looks absolutely gorgeous just perfect, love the outfit why do you pour so much hatred and scorn on her....anyone would think she'd peed on your rash and its still burning you

  • Lovely1

    Lol Why you so disrespectful tho Sandra?

  • SandraRose

    How am I disrespectful?

  • SandraRose

    All I said was she "stunned" at the premiere. Where's the hate?

  • disqus_qBRzT0AQZd

    Rihanna is beautiful...there is absolutely nothing wrong with her body...

  • SandraRose

    Who's body shaming her? Since when is plus-size a bad thing? I did not say she was obese.

  • Solstice

    I did too lol . I need new glasses ? and a hat ? to absorb all this shade!

  • Solstice

    Dgb you think so? Lol Idk if she's a 12-14. You are exactly right though about how taller people can carry the weight. I too am 5'9 and I'm 158lbs. (Be nice. I have an illness and the meds I take cause weight gain ?) I'm not yet in double digits though. I'm closer to a Misses 8. Shoot maybe even a 10 but I fluctuate so I'm not sure. If she's a 12-14 she carrying it very well. She looks good. She doesn't carry it in her face/neck like I do. So it's not as visible to me. ?

  • Taraneshia .Truss

    So you are trying to fat shame her for not being a size 2 but a size 6 or 8 now! She is NOT a plus size singer. she looks gorgeous at whatever size she's wearing! I am a plus size model and you do our industry a disservice by classifying her this way.

  • Selena Colding-Nelson

    Plus size where ? Smh

  • chibi

    So are you just looking for attention with this bizarre headline?

  • Mariann Sierra

    I'm confused. Rihanna is plus-size? GTFOOHWTS.

  • Danielle Goranson

    What's even the point of mentioning that's she's "plus-sized"? It has absolutely no impact on her film appearance, her singing, or her personality. What a bizarre and juvenile way to try to boost your pathetic excuse of a post...

  • Marie Amon

    The only plus size thing here is your bullshit

  • Samm Lacroix

    This has to be a troll.

  • Erica Nicholson

    Done with Sandra Rose. Damn no one can cover an f-ing movie premiere like they have sense. Calling her plus-size like it's derogatory, saying she's not a real actress; this shit is weak.

    I think black and brown girls are mostly too smart for this. But I hear a bunch of white teenager girls just had their anorexia and bulimia triggered by reading this, went running to throw up two weeks of food. Congratulations.

    Smh stories like this are why young girls and women have body image issues! How did y'all come to the conclusion that she is plus sized like where? What is your definition of plus size? What you call actual plus size people? I have so many questions

  • Sasha Stone

    You tried itttttt!!!!! Since when is rihanna plus sized? Body shaming much???? Stop policing black bodies!!!! Worry about your own frumpy body MethAnne!!!!

  • Haleemah Cynthia Clouser

    You couldn't just say..singer Rhianna? Wtf! That was literally disrespectful.
    Not because she called her, plus size. It wasn't necessary to even mention a body size..period.

  • Robin Wermuth

    Exactly!!! Haters.

  • Sarah Pomeranz Layne

    I'm from Barbados.. I'm white. and I'm for sure plus size.. but Rihanna... is certainly not in any way shape or form Plus-Size.. and I'm not sure what that has to do with the fact that she is a Singer.. How about.. World Famous beating everyone at the game Barbadian Songbird Rihanna.. would have been better....

  • AEEEsha

    It is not an insult and there are so many people who would be considered "plus size" by Hollywood or high fashion standards that set the trends and slay. Congratulations... Played yourself...

  • Jessica2248

    Plus size?

  • Jennifer McNulty

    Well, I fell for the click bait, but I WON'T be back to this site since that is an obnoxious trick.

    Unless you don't know what plus-size means, in which case I'm sorry, and maybe it's a little early for you to write a blog when you don't know basic terms. Maybe read a little more, understand fashion, sizing for women, etc a little more?

    Or maybe, just MAYBE not throw shade at an obviously beautiful woman (who, I get it, riles other women up who aren't as pretty) while desperately attempting to get traffic to your site because people just aren't reading otherwise?

  • Shantel Maria

    The writer of this article is an idiot to call Rihanna a plus size singer. WTH!@#%

  • Tatia L Sanchez

    Rihanna is plus size?! Wtf?! She's the same size as Cara D. Tf?! And grumbling among REAL ACTORS about them grabbing plum roles?!? What in the very hell???

  • Bree Kukowski

    Eating disorders have NOTHING to do with intelligence. Your comment is ignorant.

  • SwedeGee

    Congratulations. You played yourself.

  • Bogle

    Real actors?? And little Rihanna who weighs nothing is plus size??? She's 5' 8" and 126 pounds. On what planet do you see this as a large woman?? She's quite thin. Are you trying to make all the women of the world feel like elephants? Because I dont think that's going to work. Maybe if you find a woman with an eating disorder, you can reinforce that with your complete idiocy. And "real actors" are grumbling??? No, you're just an idiot. Seriously....what is wrong with you? I mean REALLY....what is wrong with you?

  • Kristopher M. Mosby

    Rihanna is also a model. By model standards and measurements she's considered "Plus Size". Most Designer sample packs go from 00-4, any size over 4 is considered "Plus". My wife is a size 6, if she were a Pro Model she'd be a "Plus" size. You're trippin' over nothing.

  • Bogle

    Me and just about every single other poster on this thread. And ok, I can't say I know jack about dress sizes or what is considered plus size. I'll give you that. But every time I have ever seen the words plus size, it has always been on a large woman. Doubtless this is why everyone is upset. And Rihanna is not best known as a model, but as a singer. So I don't think that criteria should be placed on her. I don't think she should be called plus size. And i still take issue with the inane "as expected/you know (implication of fact followed instantly by supposition) "real actors" grumbling. Incredibly stupid comment.

  • Chillichick

    Why did you have to even mention her size at all? Let alone lead the title with words referencing her size, it's not relevant to her talent in anyway. It's headlines like this that keep everyone focused on the wrong thing.

  • Kristopher M. Mosby

    It's not worth getting that mad about. The article is pure click bait and they get paid for each click, that's why they used the words they did, because it makes people upset.

  • Bogle

    I dare say just about every single person posting here has taken the same issue. Granted, I don't know jack about dress sizes and your information is an education to me, but every time we have ever seen the words plus sized, its always someond quite large. And Rihanna is first known as a singer. The title says plus sized singer. Not plus sized model. And I still take issue with the laughably dumb "as expected/you know" (statement of fact followed instantly by supposition) "real actors are grumbling." What a childishly inane guess. And even if Rihanna is being shot at for first being a singer, how is Cara not a real actor??

  • Bogle

    I completely agree with you. Im not as upset as my text may look. Im also pretty sure i just double posted cuz i thought inlost the first one. Just ignore the next post basically trying to repeat myself. :)

  • Phoebe-Ann Edwards

    Thanks for getting mad Bogle because it does matter about what those standards

    and sizes are doing to women and girls everyhwere.

  • Aram Vartian

    Those standards are bullshit and should change.

  • Mandie Mack

    Is this woman daft or what?

  • Little Pampu

    OK. Since the writer believes in fairytales or trying to get readers, here's a few written by me. Yep. I'm plugging my books. If they can do it, so can I. ?

  • Mary Redd

    Even if she was Plus Size and by the way she is not, why would you make the headline so negative. Young women struggle with the idea if you are over a size 4 you are over weight, the media need to stop. I am plus size and I LOVE who I am in the skin I am in!

  • SandraRose

    There is nothing negative about being plus-size. You're projecting your own negative self-talk. Try telling yourself plus-size is not negative.

  • eaglesnumberonefan

    By the reactions we're seeing on social media, I think there would be some who would beg to differ.

  • Kayla Martinez

    Please tell me this is one of those fake, not meant to be serious websites because if it isn't then this is just ridiculous. Why do you feel the need to include the phrase "plus-size" in the headline or article at all? And besides that, she is most definitely not plus-size. Y'all need to get your eyes checked, your personalities fixed, and your judgements taken care of.

  • Yomama

    I was thinking the same exact thing? Like when did Rihanna become "plus size" and why was that term even needed, SMH!

  • Shikaro Awori

    WRONG! Plus Size starts at size 14! She isn't plus size, not even in the model industry

  • Marshall L. Thomas

    Why is she even in this movie??? What a hack of an actress!

  • Denise Alexander

    Why are the words "plus size" used as the first words to describe Rihanna? If she is plus size then I am obese. SMFH

  • Julie Dawn

    WTAF???? 5'8" and 126 pounds is ANYTHING but Plus-Sized? WTF is WRONG with you???

  • Wil Alexander Lopez

    oooooohhhh y'all fucked up real bad now , hope you're ready for the back lash

  • Tami L Harper
  • Dorothy Henderson

    MAYBE THEY consider anyone who takes more than a size 3 or 4 in dress size is a "PLUS SIZE"......its crazy none the less. I don't particularly like the craziness of the style of dress she is wearing....

  • rockei

    Where is rihanna plus size!? I'm a short plus size woman!! (16) if I was a tall as her I'd be her size she's a small framed woman! And just because she's not sickly thin like our white counterparts (whose sole purpose in fashion is to make women hate themselves) doesn't make her in anyway plus size!! The thing you have to understand, is that no matter what y'all do some of us ain't buying that propaganda! It's so sad seeing our black sisters get butt shots, lighten their skin and fake breasts trying to please y'all! We quite literally pay for the bodies we naturally already have just to COMPETE for the attention of our own men so y'all can tell us we're plus size and ugly! Then everyone turns around and tans their hide, gets fake lips, ass and tits looking more and more LIKE US everyday yet we get TRASH FUCKING HEADLINES and stories such as this! Media is a disgrace all around!

  • Ted Nieves

    IF she was plus-sized there would be nothing negative, but since she ISN'T and you're just being shady, it's a problem.

  • Madre62

    Plus size? Really? Men, who want to be as fabulous as we women are, will always be the first ones to criticize us..the fact he felt compelled to use the term "plus size" when describing Rhianna's stunning dress and her beautiful face, indicates some underlying issues he has either with women of color or women in general.

  • Charlotte E Dhark

    This is disgusting.

  • Steve

    In what world is Rihanna "plus size?" The one where any Black woman with a butt is considered that?

  • Brian Je Lou

    No headline starts with plus size without trying to invoke some sort of reaction.

  • kneelbeforetigers

    Stop posting this petty, uncouth shit - in what way is Rih plus size? And if she was, WHO GIVES AN EFF? Rihanna is literally one of the most stylish and beautiful celebrities out there, and designers would cut off their left foot to work with her. She's showing that beautiful brown women can rock curves with aplomb...

  • kneelbeforetigers

    THIS. Thank you. You're banking off the reaction shot right here, SandraRose-- mainstream society loves to titter about celebrities that have supposedly "fallen off the wagon" of thinness, so that headline was meant to inspire judging and shock-value. Stop trying to manipulate what you were going for...

  • Trina Slade-Burks

    Umm she is NOT plus size. A 6lb weight does not equate to plus size

  • Suzanne Galanis

    This writer is a jealous hater. Rihanna is NOT a plus size. Disgusting racists are diseased.

  • tornadoes28

    Plus size singer? WTF? What the hell is up with that article title?

  • Alyssa Commander

    Who gave this clown a column? The f*ckery is alive and well with this one lol

  • To the World…STFU You stupid, ignorant and may I add Jealous bitch! this girl is far from Plus Size, something your fat ass is probably battling! GTFOH!!!

  • To the World…STFU

    No....This is fixing it.... I think I can speak for my sister when she can tell whoever wrote this article to "Kiss her entire black ass"

  • Kenneth Hardaway

    Rihanna looks lovely. What is this mess about plus size. Sounds like someone is hating on a very Beautiful Wonan.

  • Stephanie Todd

    Even if she was plus sized why does it need to be mentioned to describe her?? The woman is an 8 time grammy award winner and international superstar for God's sake... she needs no introductory description, period. This was def click bait and because of that i will make sure its the last click this site ever gets from me. I encourage everyone else to do the same.

  • truthisntpretty

    She's isn't plus sized you idiot.

  • Suzette McBurnie

    Plus size???..Because she has a bosom, legs you can see and an ass that's really all hers???? Seriously???

  • Cia

    Plus sized? Gtfohwtbs....she looks great!

  • Sineade

    People have such double standards- we fight to normalize healthy body shapes but as soon as a celebrity develops one we're straight in there commenting on it. Articles like this keep healthy weights from being accepted as the standard, as whether it was intended to be critical or not, as this article gains attention people will read the title and consider Rihanna's shape to be 'something other than the norm'. We really didn't need more of that. Well done again, western media.

    Plus, was it even relevant to the rest of the article? Hardly. Your clickbait tactics are damaging to people's perceptions of body image.

  • Sherese DeltaDiva Payne

    You obviously don't know WTF a plus size is. ??? And if she was plus-sized what relevance does that have to the article or he appearnce at the premiere? You can keep the underhanded compliment.

  • Kristen Kirk

    NOT plus size. In no way shape of form is this woman plus size.

  • Kristopher M. Mosby

    No, I'm actually RIGHT! In the world of modeling, Plus Size is used to categorize models above the 'normal' straight size, which typically ends at a 4. In consumer culture, plus size is used to categorize shoppers above the 'normal' size range of 0-12. A lot of the discrepancy comes from not acknowledging the two different meanings of the singular term.

  • Kristopher M. Mosby

    The sizes change all the time. Since today's people, especially women, are larger than they've ever been in recorded history, the clothing industry has started using the concept of "vanity sizing," which is when brands label clothing as smaller than they really are in order to make customers feel smaller than they really are.

  • ch

    Non-mf factor, take your plus-size jealousy and stay in your petty lane. Rihanna is beautiful and talented and writing lies about her fit and fabulous body won't change the fact that you are none of those things.

  • Cynthia Chinue X

    Racist Media! She has gained some weight which comes with age, but no plus size! This is plus size.

  • Liana Hallett

    How is she plus-size, and why do you even feel the need to mention it?!

  • Sonya Joyner

    You must be out of your rabbit ass mind if you think Rhianna is plus-size! Get some glasses, get some sense, get a reality check, gtfoh!

  • Constance Echols

    Get the hell out of here plus SIZE PLEASE STOP THE BULL....CME

  • Barasha

    My big ass is plus sized. She is NOT plus size. And you are out here throwing it around like some shade and shit. Lost your whole damn mind.

  • Juno Sobers

    Lets face facts if they hadn't have called her plus size no one would have commented. They clearly did it to get a reaction. Had anyone heard of before this stupid artical?

  • Kai Cluster

    Racist means it would be focusing on one person's race.
    In this case they were focusing on one person's weight.
    Don't blame racism for everything cause it's starting to become the new age version of the fable "The boy who cried wolf".

  • Niesh Dannie

    Nope! They're trying to troll for a career.

  • Niesh Dannie

    I can't stand the internet ?????

  • Niesh Dannie

    I honestly don't think that they believe she's plus size they're just being desperate asses.

  • thisisadamnshame

    riri has gained some weight..she wasn't a 0 like someone said, but maybe a size she might be up 2 sizes. she may have put on 25lbs at the most....she's happy in LOVE... and to the UGLY as hell writer. You claim to be 5ft 3in and 140lbs and smaller than boo boo proportionately you are not smaller...riri is 5ft 9in and 160lbs now, as opposed to her previously reported 5ft 9in 135 - 140 lbs...I know this very same 160 can make me look chunkier than my current weight...the writer is ignorant.. she prolly just doesn't like rihanna..

  • thisisadamnshame

    she's not a size 4 ..maybe a 6 now...I say she was a 2 about 6 months ago...she fell in know gained the love weight..but dude is a billionaire...Ima eat the hell outta some food too if I fall in love with a billionaire..shit a hundreds she's probably about 160 now...its okay though at 5ft 9in that is NOT plus sized...they need to leave my girl alone..she is stunning..

  • Felix H. Brown, III


    Since WHEN is Rihanna even CLOSE to being a "plus" size? Your website needs a serious overhaul, starting with your misinformed staff.

  • Efay Williams Bacchus

    My face was like this ....???? when I saw the caption begin with plus-size. What happened to just captioning Rihanna or Caribbean known international performer etc... what does her body have to do with her great work over the years. N nooo she ain't PLUS SIZE cause NOTHING in my section will fit her!!!

  • Macklova

    @KaiCluster GTFOH That is the problem with your lack of knowledge. This article is Institutional /Systematic Racism at it's best. The serious problem is Now you think you can dictate what racism is.

  • Macklova

    It' seems you're the one who's super Plus sized. Look at your profile picture. The same kind of picture that people with weight insecurities take. But have the nerve to misinform people about RiRi because you hate yourself!

  • pam b

    Plus size????...Compared to whom???

  • Macklova

    You sound stupid and look dumb for that propaganda statement. Please take about 100 seats away from this convo lol

  • Dayna Sheree
  • Dayna Sheree

    I'm sorry that you either suffer from your own body issues, have an issue with jealousy, or are just ultra petty. But Rihanna is 5'8 and weighs 140 lbs, not 160. So where did you get your information from, first off? Secondly why (other than the obvious reason) would you h begin the article with "plus sized singer Rihanna" instead of just, oh I don't know, "Rihanna?" ? Unfortunately for you, calling her plus sized doesn't make her so although I know you wish she was, so that you could feel better about yourself but you CAN get help for your own insecurities if you really want it. Good luck!

  • Cassidy Erin Roth

    Y'all frfr just called Rhianna plus sized...? Who THE FUCK do you think you are?!?!

  • Kristopher M. Mosby

    Oh Lawdy, a 5th grader just chimed in with...insults. Next time just wave a White Flag.

  • Brandon A – TigerFIST

    Plus sized? You're delusional! Your standards are ridiculous! She was actually slim in the movie. Your standard of normal is bony skinny lol

  • Hotep2you

    Bwaaahaahaaha @ all those butt hurt over reference to Rihanna being Plus Size!
    Was it necessary to add that to this online article- No, absolutely Not! But for those who are unaware- "Plus-size, " are sizes 10 - 14! Folks make it sound as though Rhianna blew up from a size 6-8 to a 28! Smh and Lol at the same time. She's noticably thicker. Nothing negative about that FACT!

  • Hotep2you

    Of her size 6/8 frame has expanded to fit the range of 10-14 then technically she is definition - plus size!
    Lol & Smh because that's not necessarily a negative thing. But alas some are losing their minds at the sheer thought. ..the shear possibility.

  • Hotep2you

    Oh she...if her size 6/8 frame as expanded to fit within the 10/14 range, she is indeed average size. We know that. But because we've ...the collective we, have allowed the fashion industry to dictate sizing categories ...classification, and qualification, When one is comfortable in their own skin, they are not bothered by what others qualify, and or characterize them as.

  • Moisés Sosa

    Plus size?

  • Susan Hill
  • Michelle R. Pritz

    The page is disgraceful. How the hell is she plus size. Media really needs to stop the body shamming. So f'en sick of this crap.

  • Emanuel

    you could just write "she thicc af"

  • Kai Cluster

    It's body shaming (especially since Rihanna isn't fat at all). It has nothing to do with racism.
    The only SERIOUS problem here is your type of people, who saying that people are racist if they are talking negative about a person of color (while you would find it okay, if a black person would target a white person).
    The irony is that most of your type of people who cry wolf way too often for no good reason, are racist, since the only time you whine and attack is when a white person is involved.
    When all reason fails, the easiest (and dumbest) thing to do is to call the other person a white supremacist racist misogynist upper class man.
    Because if a white guy who doesn't agree with you, must certainly all that.

    As a clarification, I didn't attack you nor the other user, while you felt the need to tell me to "GTFHO". For some reason, you found it okay to insult me, but if I would do the same, I'd be the worst human being in the world with no morals at all.
    Seriously... Stop being such a hypocrite.

  • Joya Beebe

    Whether or not she technically wears a plus size, due to being tall, whatever, which I am not sure she does, to call her "plus size" in a headline and lead paragraph like that is horribly offensive - because she is not what is actually meant by plus size in any way. She is a "normal" weight (thinner than American average, actually), shapely, muscular woman, who is incredibly beautiful.

    If she were an actual fat celebrity, then to say "plus size ____ wows on the red carpet" might be body positive. Although it would be better just to say "________ wows on the red carpet", and then if you wanted to talk about body positivity, like if the fat celebrity were a spokesperson for it, you could do so later in the article, after the first paragraph.

    I decided not to share your article with the comment "F*ck this article writer (or editor)", because I realized that there is a HUGE chance that you wrote it like this specifically to p*ss people off, so that we would share it and you'd go viral, and people might actually learn your page exists. That old "there's no bad publicity" marketing idea. I get the idea - I'm a marketing professional myself - but it's in this case offensive and even immoral, given the pain and even suicide that many women experience over body image issues.

    So I'm not gonna play. I recognize that clicking on your page and leaving a comment does technically help you, by helping your page stats. But I decided I would deal with having helped you in this tiny way in order to call you out on your complete f*ckery, and hope that I could also thereby reach a few of your readers and get them on board with ignoring your page in the future.

    IT IS WHAT IT IS because itzallconnected.

    Sexism, racism, and colorism are pre-programmed, mental, illnesses founded, and grounded, in extremely low self-esteem. The goal of perfecting "a weak imitation of white" has destroyed the minds of many melanated [black] people.

    The belief in the credo of "white supremacy" has reduced the majority of pale-skinned [white and imitation white] people to living lies who have chosen to die in The Lie. Protecting the credo of a [white], male supremacy has always--in all ways--been more important than human decency, truth and justice.

She's nowhere near plus sized so there is no reason to classify her as such. Even if she was, she'd be gorgeous. There is no reason to even bring up weight when you're talking about beauty.

  • Sarah Carr

    Your right this article had nothing to do with racism but you lack empathy and understanding if you believe that racism is not still a big problem in our society. It's wrong for you to use her comment to falsely accuse an entire culture or generation. The boy who cried wolf is not an appropriate comparison considering all the very real countless racists epidemics we see on the news and some experience frequently. I guess you don't understand which is why your quick to judge.

  • Kai Cluster

    Racism is a huge problem. However, bringing it up as a reason for a reaction, while it's obvious that it isn't, doesn't help the cause - it actually has the opposite effect.
    I don't like racism and I tend to show empathy in an actual situation involving racism.
    However, I'm not an idiot and therefore I won't show empathy to a person who is crying wolf (it actually is an appropriate comparison and I'll explain to you why in bit).
    First of all - I hope you realise that she's actually being racist as well, since she automatically assumed that this is a case of racism, simply because a person of color is being body shamed.
    This means she's the one focusing on race and making differences between them - which is literally the definition of racism.
    Equality of races doesn't mean invulnerability of one of them. It means that you will get the same shit as everyone else is getting from the people on the internet. If you wish to be treated any differently, then I'm sorry, but you're being racist as well as you are demanding a different attitude toward your race than everyone else is getting. (I'm not accusing you. I'm simply using the word "you" to explain a situation).

    And the reason why this is a version of the fable mentioned above is very obvious.
    People cry "racism" way too often. In most cases we're not talking about racism, but human devaluing in general. It has nothing to do with race, but rather the overrall value of a person.
    People of color tend to use race as a reason, so they can (in way too many cases) get something out of it.
    Here's an example.
    2 people with pretty much the same working skills and experience get rejected because they don't fit in. One of them being white, the other one being black.
    The white person will complain but nothing will be done about it. The black person will claim that they didn't get the job because of their race.
    Due to the current mental state of some people, the company would get under pressure and end up hiring the black person to avoid any lawsuits or protests of any kind.
    This is of course just one of the situations that could happen.
    I'm not saying that there is no racism in this world. There is - and a lot of it.
    However, this doesn't mean that people don't exploit it the other way around.
    And the people who aren't blind can see that and because of it more and more people are being sceptical when a person claims an act of racism and might look the other way when an actual problem occurs- that's why this IS like the fable "the boy who cried wolf".

  • Abby Teye

    She's obviously no longer a size 4. she has definitely gained more weight. She's a 10 or 12 now and that's considered plus size. (Plus size means you are over weight for your height and age. Which can cause health issues. The same goes for under weight ppl).

  • Abby Teye

    She's obviously no longer a size 4. she has definitely gained more weight. She's a 10 or 12 now and that's considered plus size. (Plus size means you are over weight for your height and age. Which can cause health issues. The same goes for under weight ppl). I see this as an alert for her.

  • Demonomania

    That is ridiculous. Size depends largely of the height of the person and overall body frame. Even BMI is inaccurate a lot of the times. Also, you can't know the size or weight of someone just by looking at them even if you are eye-trained from shops. And plus-size doesn't mean overweight and overweight doesn't mean unhealthy. Rihanna is far from obesity, she is still clearly around a normal range.

  • David Scott

    Again a size 10/12 is not a plus size

  • Erica Eldridge

    Considering that fact that you don't know for sure what size she IS.........sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up!!! Shameful

  • Abby Teye

    Wow. I'm not being agressive here. I'm just stating my truthful opinion. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being plus size. Obviously she's embracing it and it looks lovely one her. Size 4 or size 12 she still looks good. So please don't feel offended on her behalf. I'm sure she's feeling just fine with her new weight gain. ;)

  • Abby Teye

    I'm sure you consider ppl that are size 0 and under petite right? When you enter a plus size store it obviously starts from 10... there's absolutely nothing wrong with being plus size and women should embrace that. The charts just make it look like being under weight and being plus size can cause health issues but in reality some ppl can be under weight or plus sized and still be healthy. So there is nothing again nothing wrong if riri is plus size now.

  • Bram the Burned Hand

    The problem isn't your tone. The problem is that you are reinforcing a toxic societal impression of what is healthy and what is unhealthy. Neither you nor this article have any way of knowing Rihanna's actual clothing size without asking her or her tailors directly. Calling her "plus sized" when you have a picture of her standing directly next to another woman who is visually comparable in size and isn't commented on in terms of body image at all largely sums up the issues with both your commentary and the article's.

    It's also important to remember that there has been a large stigmatization of and against people who have higher body fat content than the national average. It doesn't matter how much you say "there's nothing wrong with being 'plus sized'" when you say in the exact same comment that being "plus sized" means you are "overweight", and that being "overweight" means you have health issues. This is especially aggravating because our societal perception of being "overweight" has little to do with the actual medical classification, and is largely a societal construct in any case.

    So please understand why people are so upset and why your commentary is just as damaging as this article itself, and please also stay the fuck in your own lane.

    Everyone has their opinion. I'm sure you know riri extremely well so I may be wrong. But if not. Then you stay in your lane and I'll keep moving in mine. Lovely chat hun

    shes not even a 10/12. she's probably around a size 8 god forbid. Plus size literally means size 14+ sooo you should probably figure out your argument

    You are so wrong on so many different levels. Someone is considered petite BASED ON THEIR HEIGHT. Generally, if you are 5'5 or below, you should be shopping in the petite section. Have you ever browsed through the petite section at clothing store? They have size 10 petite because it's for someone who is a size 10 and short. And EVERYBODY KNOWS that the camera always makes you look bigger than you do in person. You never heard the phrase "The camera adds 10lbs"?

    As a woman, you should be ashamed of yourself for even including those words in your title simply to get more reads. Lord knows your content isn't good enough to stand alone. Y'all, pray for this lil chubby girl calling grown women plus size based off of an idiotic, health threatening standard created by an industry full of anorexic people. Nice source, journalist. Get your shit together. 5'4, 166?? Throw some cardio into your haterade diet,too while you're at it, boo.

  • Janine Grevious

    nah, it's not, unfortunately. The "writer" followed up her dumbass comments citing the fashion industry standards as her source. LOL. pathetic

    I understand that, and your right in this case she was "crying wolf" so to speak. However it seemed to me as if you were implying that most people have the same mindset as her and lie about racism and blow racist incidents way out of proportion. I felt it would've been more appropriate to target her comment individually and point out what was wrong with it and how this is clearly not a case of racism. It's not fair to assume most people of color play the victim the majority of the time or don't know when to pin point actual racists circumstances. I'm sure there are other people who pull the racist card unrightfully so from time to time but it's certainly not the majority when you look at the big picture. the "Wolf" as it refers to racism has been a much bigger problem than the ones who have cried wolf when it was not relevant. But once again this article has nothing to do with racism, that we agree on.
