BLOGGER LABELS RIHANNA “PLUS SIZE” IN BODY-SHAMING HEADLINE

RIHANNA

Singer, actress, clothing and shoe designer, perfumer and humanitarian Rihanna Fenty has now been labeled plus-size for whatever reason. The past few months it seems people have felt the need to body shame her. Most notably blogger Sandra Rose is the latest to stamp Rihanna with the label of plus-size.

During her latest promotional tour stop for her upcoming film “Valerian and The City of a Thousand Planets” in Los Angeles the star wore a Giambatista Valli Couture gown.

Sandra Rose a blogger notorious for using salacious content/titles to drive traffic to her site, labeled the recap of the movie premiere  ‘Plus Size Singer Rihanna Stuns at ‘Valerian’ Premiere’.

The Rihanna Navy didn’t take to kindly to the post and dear old Sandra’s mentions were in shambles (po lil tink tink). to which she quickly followed up with another post to address the controversy.

In her post ‘fanMAIL: Rihanna is Not Plus-Size – You are BIGGER Than Her’ Sandra uses the bs “fashion industry” standard approach to justify her comments.

“If Rihanna is not plus-size, what is she? Let’s examine the fashion industry standard for plus-size models. According to PLUS Model magazine, plus size is defined as sizes 10-14; super-size is sizes 16 and up.

At 5-ft-9 and about 160 pounds, Rihanna fits the category of plus-size. She’s still a beautiful young lady, but as Sir Mix-a-Lot would say, “Red beans and rice didn’t miss her.”

A bit harsh and ignorant to say the least. As a plus size woman I’m sure we can agree that Rihanna is not Plus Size. She has however, gained a few pounds. So when did she become fat, or even over weight & if she was, what is the big damn deal???

#MUSICMONDAY AMERIE’S “WHY DON’T WE FALL IN LOVE”

Amerie_-_All_I_Have_album

It was late spring/summer 2002 (15 years ago WOW!) Amerie a 22 year old crooner asked us a simple question. Why don’t we fall in love??? With the side walk as her catwalk the 22 year old strutted as she told us that tomorrow ain’t really guaranteed, and to do anything less than fall in love was well…. Stupid! This holds true today, with so much negativity in this world it would be nice to have someone to come home to at night that is a guaranteed safe space, full of love, support and appreciation.

It’s 2017 and the question still holds true… “Why Don’t We Fall In Love?”

Enjoy the vibes below…

HOT TOPIC: RICK ROSS REVEALS HIS SEX PROOF BUSINESS STRATEGY

rick-ross-k-michelle

On the heels of Lifetime’s “The Rap Game,” VH1 has created its own Atlanta-based reality competition music show called “Signed.”

The show, which airs on Wednesday at 8 p.m., features three mentors: rap impresario and part-time Atlantian Rick Ross, Atlanta rap star The-Dream and Lenny Santiago, senior vice president of Jay Z’s Roc Nation label.

In the first episode, most of the action happens at Patchwerks Recording Studios in West Midtown Atlanta, which was originally created by former NFL player and “Real Housewives” participant Bob Whitfield 23 years ago and has recorded music with artists ranging from Mariah Carey and Toni Braxton to Britney Spears and 50 Cent.

During a promotional interview for the show Rick Ross, was asked why he had never signed a woman to his label.

His answer…

“You know,” he gave an explanation of the personnel make-up of Maybach Music Group, “I never did it because I always thought I would end up fucking a female rapper and fucking the business up.”

 “I’m so focused on my business,” Rick went on. “I just, I gotta be honest with you. You know, she looking good. I’m spending so much money on her photo shoots. I gotta fuck a couple times.”

So there’s that…

So the team at Chunky Chickz Radio Show decided that we would delve a little bit into Rick Ross’ perspective and discuss this topic as only we can.

So, was Ross being sexist? A lot of women were offended by Ross speaking his truth… Do women really want to hear the truth from men? Does Ross have a right to conduct his business as he sees fit?

FYI Ross has since apologized and all is well, but we still felt the topic needed to be addressed. Please tune in to Chunky Chickz Radio show each and every Sunday at 8:30 pm on sndsradio.com to hear our perspectives!

Khloe Kardashian Celebrates 30th Birthday At Tao Nightclub+

Khloe has been haunted by the rumor that she is the result of an affair between O.J Simpson and her mother Kris Jenner for many years now.

Twitter went up with claims that Khloe’s “DAD” was set to be released from prison. In typical K. Lo fashion, Ms. Kardashian took to twitter to blast those that would even entertain the idea that O.J. Simpson was her father.
