Drake got Rihanna a billboard. Like, a billboard billboard. Residents of LA, enjoy this touching monument to love as you crawl through horrific rush hour traffic.
The gesture is presumably a congratulations for Rihanna’s selection for the Video Vanguard Award, to be presented to her at the MTV VMAs on Sunday. From Pitchfork:
The Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award is the highest honor given at the VMAs. Past recipients include Kanye West, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Beastie Boys, Britney Spears, Madonna, and of course, Michael Jackson. Rihanna will open Sunday’s VMAs with her Video Vanguard Award performance.
Meanwhile, Chelsea Handler is on Tinder, because life’s not fair.
Jennifer Lopez has reached the “sassy Instagram” portion of her breakup from Casper Smart, taking a break from filming Shades of Blue to glare over a spiky heart stenciled to the ground.
When I look at this, I hear the opening strains of Tinashe’s BOSS filter through my head. I honestly don’t know how breakups even happened before this song was written. I’m glad I don’t remember.
Mr. Smart, for his part, is taking a page from the Bieber playbook and setting aside social media for awhile to “live old school” and “focus on personal connections,” which means he’s going to have to find something to do with his hands while everyone around him Snapchats their lives away.
He’ll be back, though. They always come back.
