Rihanna Gets WIGALICIOUSLY Green In NEW MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam Ad + Chrisette Michele PENS Open Letter Over "R&B Divas: LA" Backlash
Rihanna serves up some green wiggery for her brand new MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam editorial. Meanwhile, Chrisette Michele is having second thoughts about reality TV. Peep Rih’s gorgeous cover and find out what has Chrisette upset inside…
Make-up mavens get excited! The fearless one has a brand new shot for MAC Cosmestics Viva Glam ad. And we’re totally green with envy.
For her second collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, Rihanna got uber glam in all of her green wiggery for the launch of her new limited-edition lipstick and lipgloss line. And it will be available globally this September, just in time for fall. We’re sure her new color will sell out just as fast as her first red lippie, RiRiWoo.
This time around, Rih is offering up a bold, frosted metallic mauve lipstick and cool mauve with red frost lipgloss.
Rih took to Twitter to share her excitement:

In an effort to help fight the HIV/ADIS epidemic, all sales from her Rihanna 2 line will be donated to charities that help men, women and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Nice!
And in reality TV news....
Soul singer Chrisette Michele seems to be having second thoughts about starring on TVOne’s reality hit series, “R&B Divas: LA”
By now, anyone entering into the reality TV world knows it comes with a lot of negative backlash, no matter how “good” you try to appear on screen. The Better singer took to her Instagram to voice her thoughts on making a “mistake” by appearing on the show. In her letter (which she has already deleted), Chrisette reveals she just wanted to show her fans who she is outside of her music but instead she's having to deal with a slew of evil tweets and hateful phone calls.
"Hey can I write you a letter? Dear fans, Maybe you were right about me not doing a reality show. I have had so much fun staying beneath the radar. I’ve traveled to more countries then I can pronounce and made friends of fans and celebs alike, collabed with my favorite artists (you know I’m a nerdy hip hop head). Truth is, I wasn’t raised on R&B. I just happen to sound okay singing it.
I’ve never thought that wearing angel wings and trying to be open about feelings would make people send me evil tweets and receive awful phone calls. A Diva. Maybe that’s not the right term for artists now a days the way it was when Whitney was here. Maybe it’s meaning has changed. I’m truly just here to say hello. On your TV screens to show you who I am outside of this music/Hollywood stuff. Maybe reality was a mistake.
Maybe I should stay in my comfortable cave where I’m only loved. Half a million twitter followers, 200k insta Rich Hipster’s and 2.1 million Facebook likes have come from the music alone. From backstage hugs and kisses. From marriage proposals on my open hearted stage. From my quirky ever changing style. From hellos on the streets. From meet & greets. The moments un-telivised.
Some people aren’t meant to share their personality. Maybe I’m one of those people. One of those who are protected by the Art. Art is love and it covers. It shields. I don’t see myself doing reality again. I’ll hang out with my pet unicorn in Artist-ville. This negativity is tragic and I can’t transfer these vibes to my Art. I love you. I won’t speak negativity against any one on the show in any further interviews.
I won’t speak the name of people who quell my light. I can’t participate in brokenness. Healing is my ambition. Light is my nourishment. Be well. The Rich Hipster Captain #chrisette #ChrisetteMichele #Art #RichHipster #randbdivasLA #rbdivasla #rbdivas #iamstillhere #itsByTheGraceOfGod"'
So we can likely count her out on appearing on the next season. Guess she had to learn the hard way that it all comes with the territory.
