Rihanna must have lost her damn mind....or has she? Rih's new album Unapologetic will hit stores this November 19 and if you looking for the "deluxe" version it will run you $250...well at least the "super deluxe version" will. So what does it include? For $250 you will get the album along with a “limited edition art piece for a true collector” The DIAMONDS EXECUTIVE PLATINUM BOX, that comes with a hand written letter from Rih,a custom made white and silver Viewmaster Vintage reel with never released 3-D images of rihanna’s amazing style transformation, a tshirt, a flash drive with Rihanna pics on it , lap top stickers, a poster, a 40 page book of notes and lyrics, a 20 minute DVD and a special edition vinyl record featuring Rihanna’s remixes!! The *super deluxe version* ships out December 11. You must be the biggest STAN in the world to pay that damn much.

My 10 thoughts on controversy surrounding Zoë Saldaña playing Nina Simone in an upcoming film about Nina to be released in 2013:
1) This is not, and should not be, a controversy. Period.
2) It speaks to how broken we are as a people that we actually devote time, energy, and the perception of brain cells, to a topic that boils down to light-skinned vs. dark-skinned.

inted out, an actress should be chosen because of her talent, not because of her looks. In an ideal world you'll get talent and looks (i.e. Denzel playing Malcolm), but short of that it's a lot easier to modify looks than to make someone talented. Zoë has talent and will do a good job. And I'd bet Nina would care a lot more about the part being played accurately and well than having a splitting image of her.
4) Jill Scott's comments on the topic were great: ‘Zoe is an incredible actress. I think that there should be some wor…

I guess I just dont see what the big deal is that Stacey Dash is a Republican....I mean everyone is entitled to their own opinion and the right to pick their own political party. But nonetheless, actress Vivica had the following to say about Dash's endorsement. “I don’t know why Stacey Dash had to do a photo shoot in a Baywatch red swimsuit with the boobs and the whole flag behind her,” Fox said. “And she doesn’t have a job or something to promote right now. I just didn’t get it. She’s entitled to her own opinion but it was just surprising that first of all she was a Republican, and that she did it the way that she did. Most politicians when you support them, you try to support them with class, you don’t need to do a swimsuit shoot.”
