Rihanna Has An Empire State of Mind

Rihanna Has An Empire State of Mind

Rihanna arrives at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Monday (December 21) with her BFF Melissa.

Over the weekend, the 21-year-old Bajan babe taped her New Year’s Eve segment during the Big Apple blizzard.

Rihanna recently shared her her fave song of 2009 with MTV: “[Jay-Z and Alicia Keys'] ‘Empire State of Mind’ was definitely one of my favorite records of 2009 … one of the biggest records of 2009, also. It’s timeless. It’s epic, and it makes me want to be from New York every time I hear it. I’m like, ‘Wow, I wish I was in New York, or I wish I was from New York.’ It’s just that great feeling when you hear it.”

FYI: Rihanna is toting around the Maia N ivory leopard print authentic python bowling bag!

  • T

    Aren’t there any other celebs?

  • franknbeans

    Her outfit is very cute there.
    Too bad her face doesn’t look so good.

  • stella

    very cute coat.
    very cute hat.
    the makeup is a little underwhelming but at least she isn’t wearing the heavy stuff she usually wears.

  • Lola

    She’s 21?
    I thought she was 35.

  • gemini

    Rihanna looks better in casual wear than she does gowns and costumes.

  • Retro

    She should give up men — eff love! — and date Melissa.

  • canuck

    Don’t like the makeup or hair colour but her boots are nice.

  • Franck


  • lmao
  • ITA

    @Franck: and overexposed!

  • Zetaprime

    I like that woman, I guess she’s her close friend or assistant, who appears in a lot of pictures, like most of the shots in this set. I think she’s even cuter than Rihanna.

  • borat

    Too much of this dude.

  • Katy

    @Zetaprime: Yeah, I like Melissa too. She’s cute and she seems to be a good friend to Rihanna.

  • Judi

    she finally looks normal for once.

  • Katy

    @Zetaprime: Yeah, I like Melissa too. She’s cute and she seems a good friend to Rihanna..

  • salma

    Her outfit is nice. I wish she dressed this way EVERY day.





  • pr person

    I hope she goes home for the holidays instead of traipsing around for photo-ops.

  • who?


  • Shop Bop

    I like her top. Anyone know the designer?

  • Wilson

    The beanie is cute. It covers up her balding head.

  • Wilson

    I hope she does a special on female pattern baldness and helps other women with this problem.

  • Minx

    This is the only outfit she’s worn all year that I’ve really liked.
    Props to the stylist or Rihanna if she picked it out.

  • y

    funny nose and funny mouth. hate her. lier and want to steal someone’s man.

  • lisa


  • the_boyfriend

    i’ve not liked her since the camera panned to her and she was snickering at the goddess that is britney during the 07 vma’s.

  • tal


  • Jen

    Look at her eyes Rihanna has no soul. Her heart has always been black and evil. She is a phony.

  • laryhanis

    It was a guy singing and it featured a girl who i think was alicia sounded like her. It was on a rap station.
    and no it’s not Empire State of Mind.–Review—Does-the-Acnezine-Acne-Treatment-Work?&id=2928024

  • goofee

    You sound stupid #31, what defines a soul anyway?

    @32: I think nina sky sounds a bit like her, funny enough since that’s pretty much the only thing they got in common.

  • MMA

    She must have the mother of all frequent flier accounts!

  • Marcus

    You’d think she would want to keep that wooden condor face of hers away from the cameras.

  • Chef Coa

    Yo. All you need is a New York State of Mind darling.

  • Sarah Cutie

    Wow, she is so pretty

  • Stone

    @Sarah Cutie: Yeah, pretty sickening!
