Beyonce & Jay-Z Answer The Call+Rihanna Goes Topless For Vogue Italia

Beyonce attended her hubby Jay-Z's press conference today for the "Answer The Call" charity concert at Madison Square Garden.  They still looked pretty happy go lucky despite his whole album leaking today.  She looked cute in her Phillip Lim ruffled skirt. But damn those stockings:

Jay and Warner Music Group EVP Kevin Liles discussed how Jay's the September 11th concert will benefit the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund. In other news, Rihanna's looking fierce in the upcoming issue of Vogue Italia:

Yeah those pics do look Grace

Yeah those pics do look Grace Jones reminiscent. I was gonna type "but why is she in Vogue though?" but part of the reason why is because Rihanna is very....very good at acting. She's a performer, an entertainer - that is her job. I don't view her as a singer though that falls under the category of entertainer. She's mediocre, but for the most part, her fame is due to her ability to work with anything she is given and play the role very well. The songs she is given, the clothes she is provided with - everything. Nobody is running out to buy her albums. Our opinions and perception of her is formed by what she does outside of singing. Well, I'm speaking for myself. For being a performer out of the singing aspect, I rate her, but that's it. So yes the pictures are nice.

DanieDallas: I love Beyonce

DanieDallas: I love Beyonce and Rihanna I just wish that Rih didn’t show so much skin. I know that’s what people consider fierce these days but in that industry once you go there you can never go back. Every photographer and magazine will be trying to get her nude before you know it playboy will be calling. That’s one of the reasons I am a Bey fan. People may not like her style or her stockings but she’s always been a lady. P.S. What is so wrong with wearing stockings anyway? Rih can walk aroung looking like a cockatoo by the head and everyone loves it but Bey wears some nude stockings and there’s always a backlash. As a self-proclaimed Southern Belle there are some occasions and events where stockings are very appropriate especially for women of a certain age. When you’re 21 you can wear a short skirt and show all of your legs, but when you get to be about 25, especially out of college or married it’s time to be a little more conservative. Wow, folks are really taking this 1 pic out of how many pics in the entire spread to really focus on, it's a high fashion magazine, and this isn't the first time a celebrity or someone famous has posed for such a magazine half or almost naked, HELLO, everything that needs to be covered up is covered up. "but in that industry once you go there you can never go back." Says who? Ms. Southern Belle you are so completely WRONG!, in case anyone didn't tell you, come a little closer, more closer ok here it is, Sex Sells!, in movies, in the entertainment industry and yes in the fashion industry, Instead of being all up in arms about Rhianna's fashion spread why not be all up in arms about how young black women are portrayed in these rap and music videos, why now be up in arms about networks like BET who air shows like "Frankie & Neffie" that promote ignorant behavior and celebrate this ghetto mentality?

Rihanna is absolutely

Rihanna is absolutely stunning in person. For all of you calling her ugly the laughs on you because trust me she is a lot better looking than the majority of people I have ever seen and I have seen thousands. I willing to bet she is better looking than the people who are calling her ugly. I like Rihanna because she is not afraid to be different. She is not the typical black girl who wears weave. Oh and by the way she is tall and very skinny if she lost 30lbs. to be a model she would look anorexic. I am a size 8 and I was a lot bigger than her so I am guessing she is a size 2 or 4. I love the pics by the way. I am not trying to be racist but her audience is white and the majority of them love her so as far as her album sales go there is nothing to worry about. I predict she will sell 1 million copies the first week even in this recession. (cautiously optimistic) trust me her album is one of if not the most anticipated album of this year.

I've always said Rih Rih

I've always said Rih Rih should be modeling and not "singing", This proves it! Loves these photos, very Grace Jones! ...am I the only one who doesn't see Bey's stockings? I know she always rocks them (cus of her scarred up legs from dancing), but I don't see them here. Anyway, the Carters look cute!

Jericho-Renee: Well a hearty fuck u to stacy and Trinifab or whatever. I am educated and successful. I am also aneducator. I used these sites for fodder ( u can google the word) for my urban media classes. Bitches sems a fitting word to describe most of u and in terms of Rihanna doing hjer thing she has the same amount of talent or lack of as Madonna but a great marketing potential. I for the record I never said I was a fan of RiRI cus acyually I am not one for her music. However like u ” ladies” so feebly attempted to argue it is all about opinion. Yes I am black. Oh for the record Rihanna just bought a 10 million dollar house in LA not to bad for a person who has no talent and nothing go one. Ho’s sit to fuck down in ur paper mache shackl somewhere. Bring it I love your response - so typical - would not expect anything more from you. You win in your own world. Like I said you don't know anything about my background and based on your response (and the previous post) I would not even begin to fill you in but good luck to you and your "students" in your media classes. I can tell that you are definitely younger than me. I hope it felt good to state your "credentials". Take care and hope to see you on the next post. Look up "fodder" - that's cute.

Rihanna is a force to be

Rihanna is a force to be reckon with! These pics are the hotness (just like her song says). Ri wasn't trying to do the same ole boring pics like most celebrities do, she bought her A game. Now everyone in the industry will try to top Ri. You go girl because you set the trends in music and fashion. Believe that!!

Stacey: Wow - u black

Stacey: Wow - u black bs…blacks face racism. There is a ton of loaded comments in here that are not warranted. This is a blog that people generally try to have fun with and you are taking it just a little too far. Please - Rihanna - self righteousness??? are you serious??? Are you really putting a couple of Vogue pics and her quasi career in that context. Baby, please recognize that to real people, these blogs are nothing but a joke and we put seriousness into the REAL issues going on out there…and please do not begin to question education and career levels when you should get excited about real issues and stop having panic attacks over YBF posts. You have no idea who is on here and your assumptions are ridiculous, far-fetched and immature. Uh.....for Jericho-Renee. Where did the "black bitches" come out from?? Are u black? Why do u have to make it into a racial thing? Just cuz u may ADORE rihanna doesnt mean everyone else has to also. This is a blog, everyone has their own opinion. And by the way, like Stacey said- Magazine covers do not equal to talent. Hard work & in rihanna's case, much needed singing lessons do.

Gorgeous1/ Bey Stan #14/ I ♥ MJ THE ICON (R.I.P.): I agree. She looks better in pictures than she will ever sound on a CD or (*covers ears in horror) in person! I know, right? Like ji said before, she is really pretty, bald or with weave. But she has no singing talent and i dont care if someone tries to say that her accent makes her voice special- talent makes a singer special. *Like a priest giving a blessing* - Go on yonder, my always half naked bossom child, into the garden of 'model' & 'fashion'. DO NOT EVER burn these ears again wit ur voice..... Be GONE!! lol.but serioulsy, she's denying people wit real singing talent their time to shine. She needs to do something about that.

This young girl b trying to do her and make money in the crazy ass world where blacks face racism and discrimination from every other race and all u bitches do is tear down Rihanna. U remind me of crabs in a bucket, pulling each other down while trying to elevate ur sorry selves. Seems like we dont need the likes of Rush Limbaugh and other racist whites to keep us down. We r doing a greatt job all by ourselves. U people make me sick with ur self righteuous attitudes about everything and everyone. Do any of u have a decent education or job. Wow - u black bs...blacks face racism. There is a ton of loaded comments in here that are not warranted.

The photographs of Italy

The photographs of Italy Vogue had existed for a few days on the blogs of fan of Rihanna, one purposely publish them in the moment when the Carter couple are photographed downtown. It's is unhappy of to exist through people.

And if you stop to use the

And if you stop to use the word fierce because if my memory is good is Mrs Knowles-Casing who used this word for her new album. One each time sticks the photograph of this girl on the same page as Beyonce or her husband, one does not mix cloth and towel.

Sail Italy is not Vogue U.S RIRI!!!! Vogue U.S is most powerful of all the magazines female in the world. But the cover an Italian Vogue magazine will be enough for RiRi, by reading the reaction of some fans, I have impression they do not make much the difference with less they do not include/understand the direction of the prestigious word. this is not the cover of vogue italy this is the SUPPLEMENT's cover.
