The event also featured a performance by ASAP Ferg and appearances by other celebrities including artist / producer Ryan Leslie, Heron Preston of Nike & Been Trill, and Jennifer Anne Williams (wife of Matt Williams, creative director for KanYe West and Nick Knight).
Last night Rihanna stopped in Atrium Soho located on 644 Broadway (at Bleecker) to shop for a few hours. Accompanying Rihanna was best friend Melissa Ford and brother Rajad Fenty. The store closed at 8 pm that night out of courtesy for the customer.
Madame Tussauds Las Vegas and Madame Tussauds Hollywood simultaneously unveiled wax figures of Rihanna, just days before the launch of her new album, Unapalogetic.

Madame Tussauds Hollywood was joined by iconic choreographer Robin Antin, Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition judge and the creator of the Pussycat Dolls, to help guests celebrate the newest addition to the Madame Tussauds experience. The Los Angeles figure captures the radiance that Rihanna has become best known for in her looks and music. In glitz and glam, Rihanna, dressed in a one-of-a-kind outfit, displays the poised and sensual allure she is most idolized for.
Makes her feel like she's the only girl in the world!
After Chris Brown and Drake -- or at least their entourages -- sparked a violent brawl between their entourages at a downtown NYC club early Thursday, it was widely assumed that the fight was over one very special lady: Rihanna, Brown's ex and Drake's pal, collaborator, and rumored hook-up. Although the "We Found Love" singer had been spotted out and about in NYC earlier in the week, she wasn't at W.i.P. (where fellow stars like Mary J. Blige, Neyo, Maxwell and others were spotted Thursday evening) when a massive fight broke out between Brown and Drake's respective posses. But she definitely heard about it, a source tells Us Weekly. Rihanna "loves this!" the source says. "Men fighting over her? Are you kidding? Of course. [She] loves the drama."
Brown, 23, tweeted a photo of a serious gash on his chin after a bystander (said to be a member of Drake's entourage) threw a bottle at him during the melee. ("Chris and Drake never got in each other's faces," an observer says. "It was entourage versus entourage, never Drake versus Chris.")
Rihanna "got text messages from everybody telling her what happened right after it went down," the source explains. "She just laughed. She's spoken to both of them and just thinks it's crazy. She's glad she wasn't there though!"
As previously reported by Us, the chart-topping singer, 24, has been secretly hooking up with abusive ex Brown for over a year -- and has been romantically linked to Drake, 25, in the past.
"She wants to be friends with both of them," the source explains.
For his part, "Take Care" rapper Drake denied "any wrongdoing" at W.i.P. in a Thursday statement to Us. "He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began. He did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property," his rep said.
Rihanna performed at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Event Center to a sold out crowd. Ceelo opened for her and then later performed at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s MIXX. Atlantic City is heating up for the summer.
It was a night unlike any other the Vegas Strip has ever seen at the grand opening of Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve. Acclaimed global superstar DJ Erick Morillo kicked off the night with a set in the club's Main Room and led the countdown to 2011, while Interscope's Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre got the party started in the club's VIP room with DJ Ross One.
After the JAY-Z and Coldplay private concert in the event center at The Cosmopolitan the celebrities descended en masse to the new mega club for a historic opening. Kellan Lutz, who showed up wearing a black eye mask to avoid the Twi-Hards lined up outside to see him, settled into a table in Marquee's Main Room next to Wilmer Valderamma. 50 Cent arrived with friend Floyd Mayweather Jr., who was in anything but a fighting mood, and the two were seen dancing to music by DJ Erick Morillo before heading downstairs to the VIP room. Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan, Haylie Duff and boyfriend Nick Zano, Christina Milian, Abigail Spencer Pruitt, James Marsden, Jamie Kennedy, Jessica Szohr, Deryck Whibley, Jeremy Piven and Mark Salling were also spotted dancing in the Main Room.
The club which totals 60,000 square feet filled up to a capacity crowd of nearly 3000 people quickly and the VIP room, also known as The Boom Box was taken over by the superstar rapper JAY-Z and rock band Coldplay and their famous friends. It was so packed with A-list celebrities that you couldn't take two steps without bumping into a Grammy winner. Rihanna and Diddy came by to party with JAY-Z, Beyonce, Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, who all held court at a center table with views of the Las Vegas Strip. Kanye West and John Mayer, who surprised the crowd with performances earlier in the night at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ grand opening concert, were also spotted at the exclusive after-party, as were Alex Rodriguez and girlfriend Cameron Diaz, Forest and Keisha Whitaker, Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham, Ellen Pompeo, Kirsten Dunst, Kings of Leon's Jared Followill, Kelly Slater, Olivia Munn, Whitney Port and Emmanuelle Chriqui.
Celebrities looking for a more relaxed scene flocked to the club's third floor called The Library Room. Ashley Olsen enjoyed cocktails with boyfriend Justin Bartha early on, while Jared Leto showed up later in the night, following his 30 Second To Mars performance at The Palms. Magician David Copperfield and Dylan Lauren also enjoyed the vibe in the Library Room. Meanwhile, Mark Anthony and his wife Jennifer Lopez took over a table with 25 of their friends and family members and danced up a storm with pal Leah Remini. At one point, Anthony stole the club photographer's camera and started taking photos of Lopez who was playfully posing for him, while a few feet away Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine and Blake Lively were spotted dancing together on a banquette late into the night.
Bottles of Ace of Spades Champagne were flowing into the early hours and JAY-Z was spotted pouring glasses for friends including Gayle King. Solange Knowles did a special DJ set for her sister and brother-in-law and fellow DJ Samantha Ronson grabbed the mic to wish everyone a Happy New Year. At approximately 2:30 am Kanye West continued to surprise guests when he took over the mic in the DJ booth and treated them to an impromptu performance. Soon after, Diddy ordered a bottle of Ciroc for every table in the room as he requested his new hit "Ass on the Floor". Then JAY-Z joined Kanye in the booth and the crowd was going crazy. JAY-Z wished everyone a Happy New Year and the two started singing West's hit song, "Runaway" then their joint hit called "Monster". West and Jay-Z were then joined by Rihanna in a sing-along to her hit song, "What's My Name" and the crowd was in a frenzy.
Following JAY-Z and West's second performance of the evening, JAY-Z asked comedian Aziz Ansari to join them in the DJ booth and entertain the crowd with a "New Years Eve joke." Ansari said no, but he would not relent and eventually Ansari took the mic and got a few laughs but not before JAY, Kanye and Rihanna were joined by Beyonce in the booth at which point JAY stopped the music to wish happy new year to everyone in the room and to his wife "B". The party wound down after 5:00 AM on New Year’s Day but not before Diddy and his girlfriend Cassie made a final stop to say hi to his friend Erick Morillo in the main room’s DJ booth. Morillo proceeded to play Diddy's dance hit "Hello Good Morning" as the crowd and the cameras went crazy. It was a star-studded beginning to a New Year and a historic grand opening for Marquee Las Vegas that has set the bar for the club business once again.

Pop star Katy Perry is asking Rihanna to organize her bachelorette party. Rihanna was in the middle of announcing her summer tour with Kesha, when Perry gave her friend the task of coming up with a wild party to celebrate her upcoming wedding to British comic Russell Brand.

Superstar Jennifer Lopez is very happy that she quit her record label, because the change signals a "new beginning" for her. Jennifer revealed earlier this year that she was leaving Sony’s Epic Records after being with them for 11 years, despite plans to release a seventh album through the label this month. It was announced yesterday that she has joined Island Def Jam, which also has Rihanna and Mariah Carey in their stable. And Jennifer is very excited for the future, insisting she feels just as motivated about her career now as she did when she first started out in showbiz . She tells Britain’s Daily Mirror, "I feel like it’s a new beginning. It ’s a bit like when I was a teenager about to embark on this career but it ’s much more challenging, difficult and harder. I have so much more experience now but I feel just as fresh as I did back then and I’m excited about my life. "I won’t stop doing what I do. Maybe I’ll get to a point where I’m tired and feel I’ve done enough, but right now I see myself always working and expressing myself, whether in music or movies or fashion or whatever. That’s what I love to do." Photos By: Sara De Boer/Retna

Superstar Rihanna s praising her mother for shielding her from her fathers drug habit while she was growing up. The singer has admitted she saw her father, Ronald Fenty, taking illegal substances when she was a child, but her mother was determined to protect her from the dangers of drugs. Rihanna told CNN, "I just remember that that made me know it was wrong. Every time she saw this specific thing - the foil and the ashtray - she just would go off and they separated several times because of it, and eventually it ruined their marriage you know. She was just like ‘You’re either gonna kick that drug habit and see your kids, or you’re not gonna see your kids at all, cause they can’t see you like that.’" Photo By: Sara De Boer/Retna
