Rihanna Goes Green for MAC Viva Glam


All green everything. Rihanna switches up her look yet again in an ad for MAC Cosmetics’ Viva Glam campaign. The fashion icon rocks a bright green wig and lime green dress in the striking image, which she revealed on Twitter.

The lipstick and lipglass will go on sale in September with all sales benefitting women, men, and children living with HIV/AIDS.

Rihanna is creative and philanthropic partners with MAC Cosmetics, and hopes to raise $40 million while promoting safe sex amongst young people. “I want you to have fun—I love having fun—but you have to be responsible, you have to be safe. Protect yourself. You have to look out for yourself,” she said.

Just last week, RiRi unveiled the first ads for her men’s fragrance “Rogue Man,” which also hits stores in September.

On Thursday, she will kick off her three-city “Monster Tour” with Eminem at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.

Rap-Up TV: Yung Berg Talks Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Print,’ New Rihanna Record

Yung Berg is getting his hustle on. The Grammy-nominated producer-songwriter, who has worked with artists including Lil Wayne, Tamar Braxton, and Ray J, is cooking up hits for megastars including Rihanna, Diddy, and Nicki Minaj, who he calls one of his best friends in the industry.

The Pink Print is the female Blueprint,” Berg aka Hit Maka! told Rap-Up TV. “Jay Z put out the Blueprint. I think The Pink Print really personifies that, and not only that, I’m really involved in it.”

When asked what we can expect, he said, “You just gotta look out for greatness. It’s gonna be crazy.”

The album will be a true representation of who Nicki is. “I think she gave you guys a really great example with ‘Pills N Potions,’” he said. “It has rap in it, it has singing, but at the same token, it’s really just more about Nicki being Nicki. I really feel like she’s coming from the heart with this joint.”

When asked if Drake will be on the album, he said, “I wouldn’t put it past her. You gotta look out for some Drake records. Hopefully, I’m a part of that.”

He also penned a song called “All Night” for Rihanna, which was produced by Nic Nac (Chris Brown’s “Loyal”). “Me and Nic Nac went in,” he said. “It’s about being down all night.”

Additionally, he has been in the studio A&Ring Puff Daddy’s upcoming album Money Making Mitch.
