As Rihanna gears up for the release of her upcoming eighth studio album, the pop star is finally unveiling the artwork for the anticipated project titled, ANTI.

On Wednesday, the Barbadian beauty debuted the cover art while at a private viewing at the MAMA Gallery in Los Angeles.

Painted with a red backdrop, the artwork, constructed by Israeli contemporary artist Roy Nachum, shows a little girl, with what appears to be a towel or skirt draped around her waist, a gold crown covering her eyes and a left balloon in her left hand.

On the work’s backdrop, you’ll also find braille with poems by Chloe Mitchell. Throughout the album, there are seven pieces of artwork, including the front and back covers. “Sometimes the ones who have sight are the blindest,” Badgalriri explained during the cover’s debut.

The pop star also shared on Instagram the definition of ANTI, which reads: A person opposed to a particular policy, activity, or idea.

The definition goes on to read: “In her collaboration with Roy Nachum, Rihanna has changed the history of album art. By continuing to follow her own instincts, her work strives to make an impact by doing the very antithesis of what the public expects.”

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
