    "Everything you drops been garbage," he said. "Wish a n*gga would try/I ain’t with the drama/take me for a good guy."

    Rihanna confirms new tour

    Rihanna switched up her look (yet again) just in time for a huge announcement! The "Talk That Talk" siren has gone back to black hair for the second time in the space of about a month.

    The change up came just before news that she’ll be hitting the road next year!

    “Tour. We’re going to be going on tour next year," Rihanna told Capital FM. "So this year we’re spending out time planning to make sure it’s bigger than anything we’ve done and something more impactful, maybe something different, so my fans can get excited about it.”
