We are used to hear about Rihanna’s latest drama but this time we’re not talking music — the songstress is fighting legal issues. Her main rival: Prudential California Realty. In 2009 Rihanna moved to a Beverly Hills mansion valued at 6.9 million dollars, a value that, according to the singer, has gone down due to waterproofing defects caused by a rainstorm in January last year.
The singer states: ”The actual value of the property at the time of purchase, taking into consideration the extensive construction defects… was millions of dollars less”
This phrase summarize all the big issue. The artist is considering that due to structural problems and several defects found in the property, it was overvalued and claims that she was defrauded. The singer will also sue the inspector involved by the real estate agent with the sale along with the engineers who worked on the house.
However, the 23-year-old ‘Loud’ hit machine is not spending all of her time crying over lost investments; Rihanna is about to join the league of celebrity fashion collaborations. Armani advertising campaigns are widely known for their cool and exquisite features.
Both David and Victoria Beckham, Chrstiano Ronaldo and Megan Fox have graced the expensive brand and now the time has come for one of the youngest Billboard chart rulers to make a name for herself as an ambassador of fashion. Sexy, strong, feminine and showing lot of skin — That is how Rihanna has presented herself in the brand new Emporio Armani campaign.
She is the new face of Armani Jeans and Emporio Armani Underwear and it is a role that Rihanna plays perfectly. The campaign takes place in a garage somewhere in New York City, invoking the overall industrial and urban theme of this season’s collection, combining vintage visual elements in a black and white atmosphere.
“I just feel sexy. My body is comfortable, and it’s not unhealthy, so I’m going to rock with it,” said the Grammy-winning beauty. The campaign film is directed by Johan Renck, the same man who directed some of Madonna’s most amazing videos. He introduces us to Rihanna, seated in the back seat of a car with a leather bag and an atmosphere of mystery ambient.
The direction is very elegant and fits well with the Armani brand – so does Rihanna who sports a classy blond pixie cut, making her almost unrecognizable. The usually colorful young superstar has been re-vamped into a film noir vixen. Do you want to see for yourself? Check out the rest of Rihanna’s video below
