Rihanna Covers ‘GQ’, Rihanna Sings About How Hard She Is

Rihanna looks sharp on the January 2010 cover of GQ Magazine.

The 21 yr ol' Rated R singer was asked if she'll ever be able to trust again, Rihanna said,

“I can trust. I mean, I don’t like to stereotype; I believe everybody’s an individual. You can’t judge someone based on someone else’s actions. There are people in the world who will love you and people in the world who will hurt you, and there are people in the world who will do both.”

And here it is, the premiere of Rihanna’s newest music video and the tune I cant seem to get enough of, 'Hard'!

Shot earlier this month with Young Jeezy and directed by Melina Matsoukas, the video has been described by Rihanna herself as, “couture military” gear. Aestheticallly, the video is Ultra-stylized with perfect editing captured in every scene.

Vampires Are Born in Warsaw

'Although the name of this editorial is ‘Vampires are born in Warsaw,’ it doesn’t really have the authentic bite of Night Hotel. But maybe Warsaw vampires don’t like to show their fangs and have a more human-like skin color. The editorial is from the new Ilovefake magazine issue with photography by Krzysztof Wyzynski. The model is Andrzej Basinski.' -Homotography

Filed Under: What The Mahjiggers?!!?

Take a peek at this Japanese baby simulator.. Yotaro is his name. Not only does Yotaro cry real tears, but he also reacts to human interaction. Among other things.

You know, creating something like this does make sense. Personally, I think that individuals should have to successfully care for Yotaro before they get the greenlight to procreate.

On a personal level, this scares the shit outta me! Lol

It's RuPalin!

Around this time last year, RuPaul transformed herself into Michelle and Barack Obama. This year, she picked up some glasses at walmart to channel Sarah Palin for a promo shot for RuPaul's Drag Race [premieres Feb. 1st on Logo].

Dlist is hoping that Rupaul is going to RuPaul-ize some of Palin's catchphrases on the show. He's thinking something like, "I can see that tuck from my house!"

2009's Mom Of The Year

OctoMom is still one of the hardest working baby pimps. She slipped into a ho ho ho onesie and pushed half of her little helpers in front of the cameras for Life & Style.

Octo's little one's don't even get the holidays off! You can tell they're pissed off. Or maybe they're pissing themselves. Besides the little girl at the end only looks happy, because she spotted a close exit escape. The other little helpers of Octo's were too busy upstairs to pose for this spectacle.

Lets look back on 2009 and lets not forget one important lesson, Octomom's parenting skills...Chelsea Lately takes a look on parenting 101
