Ever since Rihanna and her abusive ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, got back together, Rihanna has been throwing subliminal shots at his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, on her Twitter page.
But Karrueche struck back with a diss of her own. When Brown tweeted a photo of himself cooking a meal for Karrueche in February, Karrueche tweeted a pic of the food that Brown prepared for her. The caption read "Yup... Get mad!"
In retaliation, Rihanna tweeted the above picture of a package of rice cakes wearing sunglasses and hoop earrings. The caption below the pic read: "Ima make u my bitch."
Rihanna's Twitter followers made the obvious connection to Brown's girlfriend.
But if you think Brown is going to defend his main chick (Karrueche), or even try to make the peace between his two women -- think again.
The lyrics to Rihanna's "Birthday Cake Remix" -- which Brown hopped on and co-signed -- contain a reference to "rice cakes," which is considered an insult to the Vietnamese. Karrueche is an aspiring model who is part Vietnamese.
So did Rihanna really take it there? Is she being disrespectful and racist because she can't get her way with Chris? Or is Rihanna just being Rihanna?
Over the weekend, reality TV star Kim Kardashian wore very unflattering leggings that revealed the depths of her insecurities. Wearing a denim vest, black leggings and a pink Chanel clutch, Kardashian smiled and posed for pictures with fans outside a sports store in Calabasas on Friday.
Like other women who suffer from body image disturbance, Kim doesn't see how unnatural her butt looks sitting on the back of her thighs like a loaded diaper. She has repeatedly denied getting butt shots or using other butt enhancements to boost her self-confidence.

Rap producer Kanye West has conquered the world of music, but he's having a little trouble convincing the world's fashionistas to take him seriously as a designer.
Narcissists think very highly of themselves, but Kanye isn't your average, run-of-the-mill narcissist.
Just to prove he's the next Marc Jacobs, Kanye packed his things and moved to Europe -- and he plans to stay there until the other fashion designers stop laughing at him behind his back.
Last week, Kanye debuted his DW collection during Paris fashion week. His designs, inspired by his late mother Donda West, barely evoked mention by the fashion critics. But the media did buzz about the shoes his models were wearing.

NBA superstar Kobe Bryant fractured his nose and suffered a concussion during the 2012 All Star game. But the self-centered Lakers forward won't let a broken nose and a mild concussion prevent him from chasing the all-time NBA scoring record.
The injuries occurred during Sunday's All-Star game in Orlando, when Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade attempted to stop Kobe from making a wide open slam dunk. Wade has since apologized to Kobe publicly and in private.
The league has strict policies on players who are diagnosed with concussions. The policy requires players with head injuries to sit out a number of games and the policy determines when players can return to the court. But we are talking about Kobe Bryant, who has records to break.
Bryant did not miss a game after suffering his injuries. He walked out on the court wearing his version of a Greek warrior mask in last night's game against the Timberwolves. The mask is to prevent further injuries to his face -- and to protect the league from liability -- while he
selfishly chases NBA records.

Director/playwright Tyler Perry's latest movie 'Good Deeds' soared to #2 behind 'Act of Valor' at the box office this weekend. 'Good Deeds' earned a respectable $15,583,924 on 2,132 screens, while 'Act of Valor' brought in $24,476,632 -- on ? more screens than 'Deeds' was shown on.
'Good Deeds' is about an anal-retentive, wealthy businessman, Wesley Deeds (Perry), trying to 'save' an exotic, LSLH cleaning woman (Thandie Newton) who works for his computer software firm.
Wesley Deeds is a hard-working, compassionate man who looks out for his narcissistic brother, Walter (Brian White), despite the fact that Walter sabotages his every move.
Deeds is so attentive to details that his daily routine can easily be predicted by his live-in fiancee, Natalie (Gabrielle Union).
Union turns in a wonderful performance as the understanding, submissive girlfriend who makes breakfast for her man every morning, while allowing him to go about his day without "checking in" with her (because she trusts him not to break from his routine). The warm, beautiful Natalie is every black man's dream.
What could be more perfect?

Rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny sit at courtside during the NBA All Star game in Orlando, FL on Sunday. The happy couple also took the kids to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando during their stay in Florida.
There is some talk (unconfirmed) that troubled singer Rihanna, 24, is being considered for Whitney Houston's role in 'Waiting To Exhale'. The truth is that Rihanna's career is over. Her former mentor Jay Z has severed all ties with her, and her record label has all but tossed her to the blog wolves as scrap meat. We doubt she's being considered to even play herself in a biopic on her own sad life.

I stopped watching the Academy Awards almost 30 years ago when I found out that the narcissistic pageantry was rigged and almost everyone knew who was going to win.
Deadline.com's writer Nikke Finke wrote: "The Oscars suck every year! And this year the Oscars are gonna suck worse than ever! Because we all know who’s going to win the marquee categories without a single envelope being ripped open."

First-time proud parents Beyonce and Jay-Z took their newborn daughter Blue Ivy Carter out on her first walk in the Big Apple today. Jay Z, right, and another man stood guard as Beyonce carried baby BIC out of a restaurant and into her custom van. Blue Ivy was tightly bound and nearly smothered in a dark blanket. In keeping with the blue theme of BIC's over-the-top birth, Beyonce wore blue outerwear over black leggings, a skull cap and black shades. The family was seen leaving Sant Ambroeus Restaurant in the West Village after having lunch.

Chris Brown's robbery victim has been revealed-- on video. The victim, Christal Spann, who clearly does not fit the "type" that Brown prefers -- was caught on video reporting Brown's alleged crime to Miami Beach cops. The video, first posted by TMZ.com, shows Spann surrounded by her friends -- all dark skinned sisters. Spann is in obvious distress as she exclaims several times, "I just want my phone back."
Spann told police that she and her friends followed Brown and rapper Tyga as they left the Cameo nightclub on South Beach early Sunday morning.
When Brown and Tyga climbed into Brown's leased black Bentley, Spann approached the vehicle and snapped a picture. An enraged Brown rolled down the window and snatched Spann's cell phone out of her hand.
Spann said Brown told her "Bitch, you not gonna put this up on no website," before speeding off with the $500 iPhone.
According to TMZ, the Miami Beach P.D. and the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office are aware of the existence of the video. The video will be used in their investigation, and it will be determined if Brown will be charged with a crime.
If Brown is charged with a crime, he will violate his California probation for assaulting singer Rihanna in 2009. Brown may be forced to serve out the remainder of his 5-year sentence in prison.
Not only does Brown hate women, but he harbors a particular hatred for women with dark skin.
According to TMZ.com, a woman's story about troubled singer Chris Brown snatching her cell phone was credible enough for the DA to consider taking out a warrant for his arrest.
According to TMZ, Christal Spann, 24, filed a police report Sunday for "robbery by snatching." She claimed she followed Chris and rapper Tyga as they were leaving Cameo nightclub in Miami early Sunday morning. She said she got close enough to snap a picture of Chris and Tyga as they sat in his Bentley.
That's when, according to the police report, Chris flipped out, rolled down his car window and grabbed her cell phone, saying, "Bitch, you're not gonna put that on the Internet."
According to the police report, Chris then rolled up his window and sped off, taking the $500 iPhone with him.
There is no indication in the police report what Chris Brown and Tyga were doing in the picture, and why it was so important for Chris to jeopardize his probation status to prevent Crystal from uploading the photo to the Internet.
The most important thing is: if Brown is arrested, he will violate his probation in California for the Rihanna assault case -- and he will be thrown in jail to serve out his sentence!

My loyal readers already knew this, but Rihanna's producer, The-Dream, has confirmed that Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" remix with Chris Brown on the track was her idea.
The-Dream tells MTV's Sway that he was driving alone in his car when he got the surprising call from Rihanna.
"I think I'm gonna put Chris on it," he remembers Rihanna saying to him over the phone. "I don't know which Chris you talkin' about, [but] OK, cool, whatever you say," The-Dream responded.
"At the end of the day, she's my friend, so whatever she wants to do is whatever she wants to do," The-Dream told Sway
