When it comes to blasting the critics, Rihanna has no shame; which is why on Monday afternoon, the singer took to social media to do just that.

Lately, Badgalriri has been getting hit with negative comments about her weight — mostly Internet trolls calling her out for adding on some pounds. Ri seems to be taking the constant chatter to heart, so she took a moment to call out the body shamers.

The singer posted an Instagram image of rapper Gucci Mane from 2007 versus 2017 to get her point across. Now for those of you who don’t know, Gucci used to be a tad fluffy around the belly. But when he was released from prison last year, he came out looking a like brand new man.

The meme read: “If you can’t handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, you don’t deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane.” The Barbadian beauty simply stamped the caption with a tear face emoji.

The good news is, despite the constant body shaming, Rihanna isn’t letting the trolls stop her from doing what she loves most.

On Monday night, the pop star was photographed in Miami filming scenes for her upcoming music video with DJ Khaled. In one scene, you see the 28-year-old frolicking around in a colorful two-piece Balenciaga ensemble. In another, the star shows off her shoulders in a white two-piece get up.

Last week, sports reporter Chris “Spags” Spagnuolo of Barstool Sports came under fire for writing a full length article about Rihanna’s weight. In the piece titled ‘Is Rihanna Going To Make Being Fat The Hot New Trend,’ Spags suggested that “A world of ladies shaped like the Hindenburg loaded into one-piece bathing suits may be on the horizon now that Rihanna is traipsing around out there looking like she’s in a sumo suit.”


Tamar Braxton Insists Divorce Isn’t A PR Stunt: I Think That’s Disgusting



Tamar Braxton is adamant that her divorce from husband Vince Herbert is not a ratings ploy for her WE tv reality show Tamar & Vince. The Braxton Family Values star stopped by The View on Friday, February 23 and addressed rumors that the split is just a plot line.

“I wish I could say that a lot of times it’s made up, just so I can hide behind the truth,” she said. “But in this situation, I absolutely have no reason to lie about my marriage or the things that are happening in my marriage for ratings. I think that’s disgusting and I would never sell my soul to the devil like that.”

“I have a regular marriage, and in regular marriages, like everybody else, things happen,” she continued. “In my marriage, it was just to a point where I felt like divorce was the only option that I had left. I definitely filed for divorce — that’s not a lie.”

Braxton, 40, and Herbert, 45, share a 4-year-old son, Logan Vincent — and she says he’s their main priority.

“I think the bigger picture of everything is that we have a responsibility to my amazing 4-year-old son, to raise him in the most comfortable, amazing, loving, secure household that we can,” she said, adding, “That’s why we don’t live together.”

Braxton — who was joined by Herbert on air — also addressed the rumor that Herbert had impregnated another woman. (Last month, in a since-deleted Instagram post, Braxton claimed an unidentified woman told her that “Vincent Herbert is having a baby,” and that Herbert had then called Braxton “begging and lying” despite a “protection order.”)

“Here is the thing about people being in your business: keep people out your business,” said Braxton. “And let me just address the meltdown that I had on Instagram. That was my fault that I put myself in a position where I opened up the floor for people to give their opinions on my marriage, and I have to take responsibility for that.”

Herbert himself insisted the allegation was “absolutely” false.

“And all the other allegations are just not true — I’m just not that kind of person,” he said. “I love this lady with all my heart, I love my family with all my heart, and I will never stop fighting for my family and trying to make it be great.”

“Vince and I have been through a lot, and the reason that I filed for divorce was not because of those rumors,” added Braxton. “I filed for divorce because we work together, he’s my baby father, we’re together each and every single day, we’re attached at the hip and it just got to be too much. We just couldn’t figure out how to figure it out.”

As for a possible reconciliation? While Herbert is on board — “absolutely,” he said — Braxton isn’t so sure.

“It’s okay not to know,” she said. “We still work together now. We do work together well, so that’s one thing that I feel like we can definitely sustain and we’ve always been able to sustain, as well as our connection and our responsibility to being parents to Logan.”
