Rihanna and her current boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, was nearly denied entry to NYC's Barcade after she forgot her ID.

Rihanna was all smiles as a bouncer stopped her at the door and requested to see her ID. NYC liquor ordinances are strict: NO entry to bars or venues where alcohol is served without identification.

Rocky argued that his girlfriend is the most popular singer in the city. But the bouncer didn't budge. The couple eventually got in after RiRi found her ID.

The same people who praised sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson after she qualified for the Olympics, are dragging her on social media for defending Chris Brown.

Brown, 32, was arrested following a domestic dispute after attending a pre-Grammy Awards party with Rihanna in early February 2009.

In old tweets dating back to 2019, Richardson tells a Rihanna fan to shut up.

"Oh my gosh SHUT UP !! Women like you are so annoying. None of us are perfect that was a mistake he made years ago & was dubbed throught [sic] the mud about for YEARS. It’s not right for anyone to put theirs hands on another person but y'all don't say anything about the fact that.

"Dragged through *but y'all don't say anything about the fact Rihanna hit him where is that criticism at. He came out & apologize but what did she do Both were wrong and both have move on with their lives why can't y’all."


 

Richardson, 21, qualified for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team, winning the women's 100-meter dash in 10.86 seconds at the Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon.

Afterwards, she confirmed her LGBT+ status by tweeting a rainbow.

In 2019 your auntie told you pop singer Rihanna had retired from the music industry to focus on her business empire.

At the time, she had just signed a lucrative deal with LVMH, the world's largest luxury goods company and parent company of Louis Vuitton (that deal has since been canceled).

In 2019, a record label source who reached out to Sandrarose.com confidentially was upset because RiRi's refusal to book studio time was jeopardizing his job.

Within days, the singer's camp issued a statement saying she would release an "absolutely insane" new album.

Maciel / BACKGRID

In September 2019, it was announced Rihanna had signed a record deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing. In December 2019, Rihanna hinted she was finishing up a new album and she planned to announce the release date in an Instagram post.

On March 27, 2020 she was featured on Canadian artist PartyNextDoor's song "Believe It" -- but her fans couldn't believe there was still no new album.

On Wednesday, Rihanna hinted she's gearing up to release a new single "soon".

The "Umbrella" singer shared a video honoring her career for Women's History Month on her Instagram which focused on her Anti era.

She wrote in the caption:

"Grateful to the most High for putting die hard supports in my circle... Congrats to everyone that contributed to this era (Anti), thank you team."

But many of her followers signaled they have lost patience with her. How long does she expect them to wait for a new album?

One follower commented: "celebrate by releasing a song", to which she replied: "I think I should" with the soon arrow emoji.

The Diamonds hitmaker then added: "just 1 tho lol."

Another vexed fan suggested she should celebrate coming out of retirement by releasing her long-awaited ninth studio album. To which she replied in Patois: "Lemme have me moment nuuuhhh??? Lol."

ALEXJR/BACKGRID

The "Work" singer hasn't released an LP since Anti, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in January 2016. But she insisted she is "always" working on her music and despite fans' pleas for her to share her latest material, she claims she wants to wait until she's completely satisfied.

Annoyed that the few fans she has left are clamoring for a new album, the 33-year-old retired singer wrote:

"I'm always working on new music. Just because I haven't released an album in a few years doesn't mean I haven't been working on it. I'm not just going to put music out because people are craving it."

And with that, Rihanna -- who earns multi-millions selling makeup, clothes and shoes -- officially turned her back on her fans.

    Drake debuted a brand new pixie hairstyle, shocking his fans who flooded his social media timelines begging for an explanation.

    He captioned the photo: "BIG MOOD."

    Drake stunned with his new hairstyle just days after his ex-lover, Rihanna, vacationed in Barbados with effeminate rapper, A$AP Rocky.

    Rocky and Rihanna, both 32, were spotted jet skiing together on Rihanna's home turf. Paparazzi photos of the lovebirds cuddled together were too much for the emo rapper who asked his stylist to hook him up with one of his exes most popular looks.

    The pixie style featured a cute heart shape which his fans assumed was a subtle nod to RiRi that she was still renting space in his head.

    Drake's emotional breakdown won him cool points with the ladies who sympathized with the lovesick Certified Lover Boy.

    Check out the Twitter reactions below.
