I keep seeing these Match.com commercials which state that “1 in every 5 relationships begin online.” These days, online dating is becoming the norm…one reason why…we are busier than ever. This got me thinking that since celebrities are some of the busiest people, they might benefit from hopping online to find a date or whatever they’re into. I’ve decided to compose a post on which celebs would match up on Match.com.
Rihanna & Drake
As we all know, Beyoncé and Jay-Z currently hold the crown as royal couple of the hip-hop/R&B genres. Rihanna and Drake will have to settle for the princess and prince spot …for now.
These two are meant to be and they are slapping us in the face with their love every time they are within 10 feet of each other. If you’ve ever watched Rihanna’s video for “What’s My Name?” it’s like watching a newlywed couple…equally gross and cute…for us single ladies…more gross than cute.
While these two briefly dated last year, they decided to hold off because of that dumbass Rihanna previously dated (still haven’t forgotten Chris Brown). Rihanna also tried to date that sports guy, but he obviously wasn’t on her level. Hint, hint Rihanna…read the writings on the wall…they say DRAKE!
A few months ago, I heard these two lovebirds were spotted making out in Montreal – Drake is from Canada after all. Hopefully he took RiRi to meet the parents and got this ball rolling. Following the Montreal incident, it was reported that these two want to focus on their careers or want to date around or not in a place to commit…what I’m really hearing is blah, blah, blah. Stop beating around the bush and get it together!
First date location: an exotic island where Rihanna and Drake can get there grove on without the cameras.
Rihanna – I think Drake can go downtown with a girl exactly like you…he will make you feel like the only girl in the world.
Don’t fret – I’ll add more couples who would match up on Match.com throughout the day.
Drake is one man that I would follow around like a lost little lamb. I have come to realize that I have a deep love for Canadian men – Drake is from Toronto. Another Canadian I <3 is Joshua Jackson, who hails from Vancouver (just incase he reads this…a girls gotta try). But that is neither here nor there.
We were introduced to Drake in 2001 when he took on the role of Jimmy Brooks on “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” When a fellow Degrassi student shot Jimmy, Drake cruised in a wheelchair the rest of the show. I must say, he handled it well.
Realizing he was born to be a rapper, Drake dropped the acting gig and picked up a mic.
I remember the first Drake song I ever heard…”Best I Ever Had.” One of my former co-workers played it on repeat at her desk for a full 8 hours (Yes Kathleen…I’m talking about you haha)! After that day, I knew Drake was here to stay. I also learned that if anyone wanted to torture me, Drake was not the artist that would get me to spill the beans!
After rocketing towards success very quickly, Drake released “Thank Me Later” June 15, 2010. One of the tracks that I am a huge fan of and like to play quite loudly in my Honda is “Up All Night.” It will make you feel boss even if your cruising on a bicycle…not that there’s anything wrong with that!
Favises lyric: “Famous like a drug that I’ve taken to much of/I never ever trip/Just peace happiness and love”
It would be a sin if I forgot to mention this…Nicki Minaj guest stars on this jam. I hope I don’t get beat up for saying this, but I really enjoy her more when she is featured on tracks! Anywho, she adds a little extra umph to this song.
Favises Nicki Minaj lyric: “Bought the president the Louis presidential briefcase/Never been a cheapskate”
Drake – When you marry Rihanna, can I please be invited? I really don’t want to miss out on the R&B/Pop/Rap wedding of the century.
I have no idea why I like this song or why I paid $1.29 on iTunes for it. There is something about it that makes me feel…dare I say…like a boss after it’s over. Rihanna does give us some good lyrics, such as “I’m such a f*ucking lady” and “I pitch with a grenade/Swing away if you’re feeling brave.” We all know she can be one tough bitch, but why exactly are we waiting for our turn? Am I waiting for Rihanna to kick my ass? I mean I’d totally be ok with her doing so, I’d have much more street cred. Note to self: protect my teeth.
This video reminds me of an early 90s rap video…the way the camera is shooting her and the black, white and grainy footage. It’s reminiscent of a Wu-Tang Clan music video: Protect Your Neck. This comparison really hit home when Rihanna is standing in front of a statue, holding her crotch.
In the end, I feel that this song was way underrated, even though I have not one clue as to what Rihanna is trying to tell me. Maybe it’s a recruitment video/anthem for the Rihanna Navy?! Do I get a point for that?
Best part of this music video: Rihanna is wearing an eye patch. Check it.
Poor Blake Lively. Most of the world has probably seen her naked already. I wonder if her rumored new boyfriend Jack Dawson… I mean Leo DiCaprio has taken a peak at the pics. While Lively’s camp is still denying the picture’s authenticity, it seems that we the people do not care whether or not they are real. If the pictures aren’t of Lively, the girl is a spitting image of the “Gossip Girl” star.
This nude scandal has inspired me to reminisce about previous scandals that do not involve clothes. Hold onto your pants!
“1 Night in Paris”
Let’s be real. You can’t talk about naked scandals without talking about Paris Hilton’s starring role in “1 Night in Paris.” Released in 2004, the tape shows 62 minutes of Paris and her ex-boyfriend, Rick Salomon consummating their relationship.
Interviewed by the British version of “GQ,” Paris stated, “I never received a dime from the video. It’s just dirty money and (Salomon) should give it all to some charity for the sexually abused or something. To be honest, I don’t even think about it any more.” Regardless of whether Paris still thinks about the tape or not, it did get noticed by the AVN Awards, which is the Academy Awards of porn. “1 Night in Paris” won Top Renting Release of the Year.
Look at him now
Oh Chris Brown. Not only did you hurt our precious Rihanna, we have also seen what your mama gave you. Personally, I would have rather see T.I. in his birthday suit than Chris Brown, but I’ll take what I can get.
Rumor has it that an ex-girlfriend of his leaked the photo of Brown. While the “Kiss,Kiss” singer was in the process of trying to erase the previous scandal that he got himself into, the naked scandal seemed to have come at the right time.
I do have to say this about what horrible thing he did to Rihanna: We. Will. Never. Forget. Bitch.
Back in 2009, a very interesting picture of Jamie Foxx hit the web. He was wearing nothing but a do-rag. While we all know once a nude pic hits the web, usually the celebrity immediately denies that it’s them in the picture.
What is rare in this case of celebrity nude scandals is that Jamie Foxx readily admitted that it was him in the photo. Foxx admitted that the reason he took the picture was for his make-up artist for a before and after shot of his physical training.
The photo was hacked and broadcasted for all to see. Jamie, I’m blushing…
There you have it folks. As Reese Witherspoon said at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, “if you take naked pictures with your cell phone, hide your face.”
Welp, it’s Friday. You know what that means…it’s Celebrity Top 3 day! Each week it keeps getting more and more difficult to choose only three stories to spotlight. But alas, I have chosen my three favorites for this week. Here we go!
She’s just trying to find a husband
It has been reported that Jennifer Aniston has reeled in a new beau! The new Mr. Aniston supposedly is Justin Theroux. If you are like me, your response was “huh?” After doing some research, I found out that Theroux is a triple threat.
He acts, directs and is a screenwriter. His debut in the acting world was in the film “I shot Andy Warhol,” but he has also been in “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” and “Zoolander.” I would say his most groundbreaking role was the cowboy in “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion.”
People Magazine has reported that the pair has been dating for a few weeks and Theroux has already met Aniston’s bffs Chelsea Handler and Courtney Cox. Jen, excellent choice on this one! He’s sexy and he looks like he can kick Brad’s ass. Get it girl.
My favorite “Jersey Shore” cast member has found her way back into the slammer…this time in Italy. While she was cruising around with pal Deena, Snooki rammed into the back of an Italian cop car. You are probably thinking that she was intoxicated. Surprisingly, she was 100% sober when taken into custody.
When she was spotted after being released, Snooki was sporting a neck brace as if she was injured from the crash. A little while later, news broke that Snooki was just punking us and ripped the neck brace off. Oh Snooki you got us! As a side note, we don’t have to worry America, Snooki’s fender bender won’t cost her U.S.A driver’s license. Hitchhikers of America, Snooki can still pick you up!
“Man Down” literally
This week Rihanna premiered her new music video for her song “Man Down.” In the video, Rihanna shoots a man at the very beginning. The video then rewinds to the previous day where we see Rihanna being her carefree self. She meets a gentleman caller and it quickly turns ugly. It looks like this man sexually assaults Rihanna, hence the reason for the shooting.
Well, the Parents Television Council has to throw its two cents in stating, “If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass …” Rihanna gets a free pass for the rest of her life. She can do whatever she wants. I respect Rihanna for putting this video out. While I’m sure she’s not supporting murder, I think she’s trying to put a stop to this type of violence in her own way. Team Rihanna 4ever.
There you have it. The Celebrity Top 3 for this week. Stay tuned for next week!
