Rihanna's Open-Robed Perfume Ad Too Racy For Kuwait

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Rihanna‘s ad for her fragrance, Reb’l Fleur, features the singer looking both romantic and sexy. Soft and dreamy, she sniffs a bloom… while her robe hangs open. Except in Kuwait! Where her robe is closed. Possibly via Photoshop. That’s the Kuwaiti version on the left; the one for the heathens of the Western world on the right. Honestly? I like ’em both! [ONTD]

Lady Gaga‘s “Judas” video airs tonight! Despite the fact that the video involves Jerusalem and song includes words like “holy,” “prophets,” “Jesus” and “Biblical,” The Gags says: “I don’t view the video as a religious statement. I view it as social statement. I view it as a cultural statement. It’s a metaphor. It’s not meant to be a biblical lesson.” [Digital Spy]

BTW, a producer who works with Gaga is pissed about the comparisons to Madonna. “I think [it’s] bullshit, to be honest… How many people have been copying Gaga since she came out? Oh, I have that answer: everyone. Have you seen all the lightning bolts painted on faces, or the one hand eye cover-ups during photos? How about the fact that there was barely any dance music on the radio until ‘Just Dance’ came out? Come on motherfuckers, let’s keep it real here. If we are going to talk about who is chasing who, I think we all know the answer to that.” Dude, tell us how you really feel! [Daily Express]

Paris Hilton was visiting shelter, handing out meals (with cameras for her new reality show capturing the whole thing) when a homeless lady asked, “can I have your earrings?” Paris said yes, and gave them to the woman, who said, I’m going to give them to my sister… And tell her Lindsay [gave them to me] — Aren’t you supposed to be in rehab?” Paris, after she had time to think about it, dropped this in via voiceover : “If I were Lindsay, I’d be stealing the earrings. Not giving them away.” Ooh, burn. [TMZ]

People. Stop throwing fake grenades at my pretend boyfriend Bruno Mars. He gets scared. And it’s not nice. Feel free to throw underwear, however. He says: “I don’t mind a few bras. They’re better than candy. That can really hurt.” [Contact Music]
