So, the other day my west coast connect sent me the Blind Item below. I guessed correctly that the singer was Rihanna. But my informer wouldn't tell me who RiRi's new lover was.

"You're going to be shocked when you find out who it is," my source told me.

She was right!

Which bad girl singer is planning a move to London to be closer to the new love in her life? This singer, who has well-documented problems with men in the past, has not hidden her feelings for a certain lady artist living in London. The singer is house-hunting in London for the perfect pad, close enough to her lady love. This singer is also producing a reality show in London which will feature the new love of her life.

A few weeks ago, a source reached out to Sandrarose.com with a weird scoop: she told me that Rihanna was moving to my birthplace (London) to be closer to her new love.

"You're going to be shocked when you find out who it is," my source told me.

I lobbed a few guesses into the air but my source swatted all of my guesses down.

Never in a million years did I guess Rihanna's new lover would turn out to be British singer Rita Ora!!

My source has not confirmed this yet, but when you consider Rihanna's actions over the past few weeks, it makes total sense!

HOT 97 (NY) listeners flooded the station with angry calls the day after President Barack Obama endorsed same-sex marriage. A majority of the listeners agreed that Obama's opinion was clearly politically motivated, and intended to score points with the gay community.

A rumor is going around that Obama met with influential and powerful gay donors at the home of actor George Clooney, where Obama received millions in donations and a promise to deliver gay votes if Obama endorsed same-sex marriage.

Mr. Obama has consistently said he agreed with gay unions, but not same-sex marriage.

According to Fox News, callers to the popular urban station expressed disappointment in Obama, with some saying the president lost their votes.

Troubled singer Rihanna was spotted leaving her New York hotel Sunday night. The admitted bisexual beauty wore a black tank top with jeans and Timberland construction boots. She spent the past week on both coasts with her divorced parents who flew in from Barbados on the advice of the family's spiritual advisor and friends who were worried that Rihanna was on the brink of disaster. RiRi, 24, is a reported drug user and a recovering alcoholic whose life has spiraled out of control after a series of failed relationships with both men and women.

Newsweek magazine features President Barack Obama on the cover of the May 21st issue. The heading reads: 'THE FIRST GAY PRESIDENT.'

Of course, the president isn't gay, but he made history on May 9 when he became the first sitting president to voice his opinion endorsing same-sex marriage.

In his cover piece, writer Andrew Sullivan makes the inevitable comparison between the civil rights struggle and gay rights.

And President Obama has much in common with the gay community. "He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family," Sullivan writes.

On the same day that the president of the United States made history by endorsing same-sex marriage, another man made a personal revelation that grabbed almost as many headlines.

Against Me! singer Tom Gabel revealed his decision to come out of the closet and begin living his life as a woman.

In the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, Gabel, explained he will soon begin the process of transitioning to a woman by taking hormones and undergoing electrolysis treatments remove his body hair.

Gabel also revealed his plans to remain in his marriage to his wife -- a biological female.

Gheys and lesbians are celebrating the biggest news since the passage of the gay marriage law in New York in 2011.

Hollywood's most well-known lesbian, Queen Latifah, has finally come out of the closet. The rapper-turned-actress made the transition quietly, in a press release announcing her commitment to headline this year's annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival.

It is the first time that Latifah, real name Dana Owens, has ever participated in a Gay Pride celebration.

Sandrarose.com was the first to break the scoop that Latifah, 42, and her longtime lover Jeanette Jenkins had split up in 2011 (thanks to my west coast connect for the tip!).

That's when Latifah began dating a choreographer, who some say helped break up her relationship with Jenkins.

Remember I told you kids that Love is expressed through actions and not words? Most women have men who forget they exist when they're not around. Or they woo their women with flowers before they tie the knot, but afterwards their wives only get flowers on Valentine's Day.

But Rihanna's boo thang, Melissa Forde, gets gifts year-round. Rihanna tweeted a pic of herself and her assistant Jennifer Rosales shopping for a gift for Melissa, whose Twitter handle is @mforde11. Melissa stays on RiRi's mind even when she's not around -- and Rihanna wants her 17 million Twitter followers to know it!

Is it just me, or does Rihanna look healthier and happier since coming out of the closet? If you're on Twitter, remember to thank @jennnrosales for keeping Rihanna safe.

Troubled singer Chris Brown tweeted images from a photo shoot Wednesday night on his Twitter account. The disturbing images show half naked women levitating in the air above hospital beds which line both sides of a street. It's ironic that Brown should use hospital beds as props since it looks like he should be lying down in one.

According to Freshlikedougie blog, Brown and Nicki Minaj are shooting a music video for "Right By My Side" this week.

Troubled singer Rihanna stepped out Monday night with her lover Melissa Forde. Rihanna looked stunning in a silver metallic maxi dress and a light blue denim vest, while Melissa wore a black aviator jacket and jeans. Rihanna and Mel walked arm-in-arm as they left their Midtown hotel and headed to dinner at Da Silvano in New York City. Melissa looks a lot more comfortable playing the butch role -- at least in public. But friends say Rihanna is the dominant one in their relationship.

Nicki Minaj looked like a well-manicured poodle as she left her London hotel in a trademark lime green neon outfit and foam lollipop. And on Thursday, the 29-year-old Pink Friday rapper donned an all pink outfit at her CD signing at a London HMV Record store, where she was mobbed by screaming fans.

Remember that 'pregnant man' who was actually born a female who gave birth to a baby, which is natural for females, but the media typically spun the story out of control because she claimed she was a man?

Well, 2 more kids later, and 'pregnant man' Thomas Beatie, 38, has split from 'his' wife Nancy, 49, according to People magazine.

People explains that the break up occurred during the taping of a reality tv show called The Doctors in which Beatty also said he had undergone a final female-to-male gender reassignment surgery.

During the episode, which airs on May 7, Beatty says her now estranged wife hasn't seen "the new me yet."

"Like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we’re going through a rough patch right now. At the moment, we’re separated."

This sounds exactly like a BBQ Wives publicity stunt designed to get gullible viewers to tune in to their boring show.

Today's Morning Wood is for the gheys. Harry Louis is a 25-year-old Brazilian model and pr0n star, whose only claim to fame is that he's dating 49-year-old Louis Vuitton designer Marc Jacobs.

Jacobs is a typical addictive personality type, who has been engaged to marry at least two of his lovers within the past 3 years. Judging from Harry's Twitter page, he seems to be "in love" with Jacobs. But he's probably more in love with the fact that he's dating one of the most eligible bachelors in the gay community. It doesn't hurt that he can get all the Louis Vuitton bags he wants.

Some of the following photos may not be safe for work.

Remember the transgender person who was kicked out of the Miss Universe pageant for not being a biological female? Well, the pageant officials have caved under the intense pressure from the LGBT groups. It doesn't matter that this person has no chance of winning the coveted crown. The important thing is to be allowed to compete as a girl.

Disqualified Miss Universe Canada contestant Jenna Talackova better start practicing that wave: Officials have reversed their decision to kick her out for being born a boy. The 23-year-old can now compete on the condition she "meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions," although they still haven't clarified exactly what those requirements are. Source

My guess is that one of those requirements is to have a gay advocacy group in your corner that has the power and the money to topple pageant sponsorships.

I will also go out on a limb and guess that another requirement is to have powerful lawyers threatening to put the Miss Universe pageant on ice.

Thanks to loyal reader Dawn Sheen for the tip!

It looks like actress Lindsay Lohan's legal troubles are behind her. Earlier today, Judge Stephanie Sautner, who is apparently a big Lohan fan, declared, "She did it!" after the 25-year-old successfully completed her probation requirements.

From TMZ.com:

The judge took Lindsay off probation altogether in what herhonor called "the endless" 2007 DUI case. If Lindsay had not completed the terms of her probation, Judge Sautner could have sentenced her to 270 days in the pokey. When the judge terminated probation, Lindsay cracked a big smile and breathed a huge sigh of relief.

As Lohan walked out of the courtroom and into the bright California sunshine, she was mobbed by a crush of paparazzi and reporters asking her how it feels to be free.

During a press conference in London for the new movie 'Battleship,' a rude reporter had the nerve to imply that Rihanna was unhappy in her personal life. The reporter asked if "a certain Mr. Kutcher" would be making the trip to London for the movie's premiere.

First of all, Rihanna has never confirmed the silly rumors that she was dating Ashton Kutcher.

But besides that, the "Talk That Talk" singer was simply stunned at the reporter's assumption that she was unhappy without a man in her life.

After a brief pause to collect her thoughts, Rihanna replied, "Wow, how disappointing was that question."

A moderator jumped in, but Rihanna continued, "I'm happy and I'm single, if that's what you're really asking."

Rihanna should have told the rude reporter that she and her personal assistant, Melissa Forde (pictured above), are very happy together.

Watch the verbal exchange after the break.

Singer Rihanna spent a busy weekend in NYC, where she celebrated her grandmother Dolly's birthday. The 23-year-old Bajan superstar was spotted at JFK airport signing autographs on anything her fans handed her. I don't blame them. If I saw Rihanna, I would ask her to sign a McDonald's paper bag if I had to. We don't know how much longer she will be with us (God forbid). Her autograph might be worth something later on. Please continue to keep Rihanna in your prayers.

Former child star Kirk Cameron has once again riled gay advocacy groups with his controversial statements on gay marriage and homosexuality.

Appearing on CNN's Piers Morgan talk show on Friday, the 41-year-old former 'Growing Pains' star said homosexuality was "unnatural" and "detrimental" to society.

"I think that it's detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization," Cameron told Morgan.

Cameron, who is an Evangelical Christian, also defended the institution of marriage:

"Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. And I don't think anyone else should either," Cameron said. "So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don't." Source

Opinions are protected by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. Whether gays like it or not, Cameron's opinions on homosexuality are his opinions and he has the right to express them -- according to Morgan.

Morgan called Cameron "brave" and "honest" when he was interviewed by celebrity gossip website TMZ.com, over the weekend.

Rapper Tyga's name is synonymous with gay. Whenever someone mentions "gay rapper," Tyga's name often jumps to the forefront of the discussion.

If you recall, Tyga was the rapper sitting with Chris Brown in the Bentley outside a Miami nightclub, when the singer snatched a fan's cell phone for captured incriminating evidence of the two men.

So it seems odd that Tyga would hurl anti-gay slurs on his Twitter page after another gossip blog outed him... again. Expect to see a statement soon from angry gay groups demanding an apology or retraction from Mr. Tyga.

Dareal Damare Williams skipped town when he heard he was wanted for that brutal beating of a gay man that was captured on video. But the long arms of the law found the 17-year-old thug hiding out in Erie, Pennsylvania, where he had relatives.

According to the Atlanta Journal, Williams turned himself in to Erie, Pa., authorities around 10:30 a.m. Thursday, without incident. Federal agents had identified him with the help of tips from the public. The feds tracked Williams to Pennsylvania where they issued an all-points alert Wednesday.

Williams is the last of three suspects to be arrested for the Feb. 4 assault of 20-year-old Brandon White outside a grocery in southwest Atlanta. White drew the men's wrath for wearing skinny jeans, a popular fashion trend among young males, gay and straight.

Williams is being held on $250,000 bond at the Erie County Prison while he awaits extradition back to Atlanta.

According to the AJC, Mayor Kasim Reed raised an Atlanta Crime Stoppers reward several times, until the final sum reached $25,000.

Tips called in to police led to the arrests of Christopher Cain, 19, and Dorian Moragne, also 19, who turned himself in to police on Feb. 17.

For the 2nd day in a row, American singer Rihanna, 24, was mobbed by the British media in London as she partied at Mahiki nightclub following the 2012 Brit Awards. What could cause the normally staid, composed British media to react to Rihanna in this way? Just 2 days ago, the "Birthday Cake" singer rode the subway, where she was virtually unrecognized just like a normal commoner.

Rihanna won the Best International Female Award at the 2012 Brit Awards held at the 02 Arena yesterday. She also performed a medley of her songs. Afterwards, Rihanna partied with a few friends, including Rob Kardashian (Khloe's brother), who sneaked into Mahiki nightclub to party with RiRi.

Rihanna reportedly left the Mahiki nightclub with a woman's lipstick stain on her neck. Through good detective work (and a few phone calls), we were able to match the lipstick stain on Robyn's neck to the woman standing directly behind her in the above pic. Everyone knows RiRi is a freak. But who is this chick that was freaking on her?

All this attention Rihanna is getting could be due to the fact that she is back together with her abusive boyfriend, troubled singer Chris Brown. Maybe the British media believes Rihanna will be beaten to within an inch of her life when she returns to America -- and they may never see her again? :shrug:

Update:

According to loyal reader @MissFeven, the woman in the photo with Rihanna is Sarah Jane Crawford, a radio presenter in London.

Pre-Barbie footage of Nicki Minaj surfaced online over the weekend. Oddly enough, the footage shows the young Queens MC paying homage to her predecessors, Lil Kim and Foxy Brown. In the video, Minaj strolls down the streets of Queens spitting her "Dirty Money" freestyle.

This video also lends support to those who say Nicki is the butch lesbian rapper in the legendary "eat the box" clip, which you can view here.

It is a well-known fact in the music industry that pop icon Whitney Houston was involved in a long term lesbian relationship with her personal assistant, Robyn Crawford, before she met Bobby Brown. It was whispered that Whitney and Bobby's relationship was initially arranged by her record label to dispel the persistent lesbian rumors.

In addition to introducing her to Bobby, Houston's tomboyish image was also revamped, and she was asked to wear wigs, in an effort to soften her image and make her appear more feminine.

According to the Daily Mail, gay rights activist Peter Tatchell said her marriage to Bobby Brown was a smokescreen.

"It’s important to tell the truth about this aspect of her life," he told the Daily Star.

It's a well-known fact that Whitney's lover, Robyn, and Bobby often clashed over Whitney's increasing drug use. Friends say Whitney was into drugs before she met Bobby, but once they got together, her drug use escalated out of control.

Lesbian rapper Syd The Kyd has come under attack by gay advocates for being homophobic.

In a recent interview with Out Magazine, Kyd stood by her fellow Odd Future band member, Tyler The Creator, who has been criticized for his anti-gay rap lyrics.

"Most of the homos I know use homophobic slurs, and it's never a problem unless someone who's not a part of the group is using the word," Syd says. "But a lot of people take things out of context, and you've got to understand that there is a difference between saying, ‘Hey, you faggot' and 'Hey, faggot.' When Tyler says 'faggot,' he's not referring to gays, he's referring to lame people. And in our vocabulary, that's what the word 'faggot' means. I'm not offended by the word 'faggot' — and I am one."

This didn't sit well with Mindy Abovitz, editor of Tom Tom Magazine, who recently canceled a piece on Syd after taking offense at Kyd's music video in which she tossed her lesbian lover out of a moving vehicle for falling asleep.

An arrest has been made in the beating of a 20-year-old gay man that was captured on video and uploaded to the internet.

Brandon White, left, was assaulted by 3 men shouting anti-gay slurs as he left a convenience store on McDaniels street on Atlanta's southwest side last Saturday.

The beating was captured on 2 cell phone cameras and uploaded to Worldstarhiphop.com where it went viral.

Channel 2 Action news and the Atlanta Journal reports that Christopher Cain, 18, (inset) was arrested at midnight on Saturday in DeKalb County and charged with aggravated assault and robbery. He is currently being held at the Fulton county jail without bond.

Police have identified the other two assailants seen beating White in the video, but their names have not been released. Police are offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to their arrests.

Meanwhile, concerned citizens of the Pittsburgh community and gay rights advocates have joined together to protest the beating and to foster unity in both communities.

Fashionable singers Christina Milian, right, and Rihanna were spotted dining in separate locations in Los Angeles, yesterday. Rihanna is set to join her pugilistic ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, as they perform during the 2012 Grammy Awards. It's been 3 years since Brown, now 22, beat Rihanna down in a vicious attack that left her permanently scarred emotionally. Fans can't help but notice that Rihanna has not been the same since the savage attack.

CNN has apparently caved in to pressure from gay groups by suspending political analyst Roland Martin for making a joke about British soccer star David Beckham.

A CNN spokeswoman confirmed the suspension with this statement issued today:

“Roland Martin’s tweets were regrettable and offensive. Language that demeans is inconsistent with the values and culture of our organization, and is not tolerated. We have been giving careful consideration to this matter, and Roland will not be appearing on our air for the time being."

Martin came under attack from gay groups after tweeting a wisecrack about Beckham's underwear commercial which aired during Sunday's Super Bowl telecast on NBC.

Martin seemed to suggest in his tweet that his followers “smack the ish out of” any male Super Bowl fan who is “hyped about David Beckham’s H&M underwear ad.”

Martin added that “real bruhs” would not purchase underwear advertised by Beckham.

A network suspension is usually the first step towards a contract termination. Martin was a CNN political analyst for 4 years.

20-year-old Brandon White stepped forward today to speak about the beating incident that has galvanized the gay community in Atlanta.

“I want to see something done. I don’t want anyone else to have to go through what I went through,” White said at a packed midday news conference.

White was the man seen in a viral video being brutalized by three unidentified men who punched and kicked him while they shouted anti-gay slogans. The 3 attackers are reportedly members of a local street gang called the "Jungle Boys" and the 1029 Jack City gang.

White said he didn't report the incident to the police initially until he saw the video go viral on the Internet.

“I don’t bother anyone. I felt that if a straight person could walk to the store and not have a problem, I should be able to do the same thing,” White said.

In the video, which was first posted on Worldstarhiphop.com, White, wearing tight black "skinny jeans", was ambushed by 3 gang members outside a convenience store on McDaniel Street in the "Pittsburgh" area of Atlanta on Saturday.

A man off camera can be heard repeatedly yelling "No f*ggots in Jack City!"

The FBI is investigating the case as a hate crime based on the anti-gay slogans heard in the 30-second video.

White, who is seeking therapy for his emotional scars, gave this advice to others who are victims of homophobic violence: “Say something. Speak to someone. Don’t hide it. You shouldn’t have to. This is 2012."

Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call Zone 3 police officers at 404-624-0674 or to call anonymously to Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477.
