Earlier this week, Rihanna directed a photo shoot in Los Angeles for her highly anticipated collaboration with “River Island.” The models for the campaign will include Jourdan Dunn. Rihanna has also been spotted around LA in a navy blue jumper, one of the line’s pieces.
Rihanna seemed excited following the shoot. “My bitches so Bvalgari… Just directed my first ad campaign for my new collection with River Island, Spring/Summer 2013!! And that’s a wrap at the end of a 2 day shoot w/ MARIO SORRENTI,” she tweeted.
In addition to River Island, Rihanna is also making headlines for her alleged comments comparing her relationship with Chris Brown to that of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.
HollywoodLife.com quotes a Rihanna source, “Ri was watching Bobby and Whitney’s “Something In Common” video the other day and said ‘This is just like Chris and me. For real though, that’s the type of fun we having right now. I love Whitney. She was my girl. Can’t nobody do it better than her.’”
That “fun” appears in a track called “Nobody’s Business” on Rihanna’s latest album, Unapologetic, and the comparison to “Something in Common” is striking.
