Hitler vs Churchill.
Lincoln vs Davis.
Rihanna vs….the microphone.
Yes, since the dawn of time, the world has witnessed many an epic battle- changing the course of history with every strike launched to stifle the opposition. Alas, while the first two ‘feuds’ find themselves well and truly over, the latter continues on, reaching dangerous new heights in the city of Paris hours ago.
Indeed, none could have predicted what was to happen when bum-note hitter Rihanna came face to face with her sworn enemy outside Chanel‘s fashion week showing, setting the scene for a showdown it’s unlikely to ever forget.
For, after striking fear into the hearts of many a mic with her voice, this time saw her do just that with her hands…catching the black tool by complete surprise!

If industry whispers are anything to go by, Rihanna‘s eighth studio is shaping up to be quite the Pop masterpiece, with the star reportedly calling on chart-toppers across the globe to submit their best material for her consideration.
However, work on the release did very little to get in the way of her downtime recently, when she touched down in Paris and caught up with ‘Mine’ maker Drake.
Now, as the latter joins Beyonce in celebrating the success of the R&B number, Rihanna enjoyed all ‘Jean Paul Gaultier’ had to offer recently, when she hit his latest fashion show, birthed as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2014-2015.

As more and more entertainers embrace and engage in all social media has to offer, recent years have seen the ‘value’ of ‘fan opinions’ rise as music lovers shape and mould trends with comments left on message boards, Facebook, Twitter and the like.
Coming with its own set of pros and cons, it wouldn’t be too fantastic to believe that the camps behind said acts comb through these comments, pulling what they will from them for market research purposes (see Ariana Grande ‘Yours Truly’ fiasco).
So, with all of the above in mind, last night saw That Grape Juice.Net pose a question on our official Facebook page, sparking a debate that continued through the night and well into this morning.
What it was?

Microwave music maven Rihanna may have passed on putting out new music last year (due to insurmountable competition), however it appears the star is looking to make quite the splash in 2014.
For, in a move few could have anticipated, film house DreamWorks have announced that the 25-year-old is piecing together a concept album based around their animated movie ‘Home’ – which will hit stores in November.
As at writing, the release will serve as the first new material from the model since 2012′s ‘Unapologetic’.

Drake‘s ‘Would You Like A Tour’ tour rolled into Paris tonight, continuing the the European leg of the hit trek.
Residents of the French capital were treated to live renditions of the Young Money maestro’s smashes – including the Rihanna assisted ‘Take Care’.
The Noise herself surprised the thousands in attendance at the Bercy by joining Drizzy to perform the cut, as well as her own strip-club anthem ‘Pour It Up’. Let’s just say the latter saw the 25-year-old sounding like she was starting a car.

When one’s star shines as bright as Rihanna‘s, one would be right to expect the general public to ‘turn up’ a little upon spotting the singer in public.
However,we doubt the charitable chart chaser anticipated the reaction she scored in Paris hours ago, when she attempted to return to Jardine Matheson‘s ‘Mandarin Oriental Paris’, only to be mobbed by a pack of ravenous fans eager to touch the entertainer.

Grammy winning singer T-Boz, one-third of veteran R&B girl group TLC, finds herself in hot water on Twitter yet again for weighing in on today’s top stars.
After Nicki Minaj‘s faithful fan group, christened ‘Barbz’, put the ‘Waterfalls’ wailer on their scope for comments she made about the rapstress during her short American Idol stint, now the ever outspoken Tionne is finding even indirect mention will ignite attack from the most devoted fans.
Case in point?
Earlier this morning, T-Boz took to Twitter to share her thoughts on Miley Cyrus. Unbeknownst to her at the time, those very comments would spark a firestorm of backlash from fans of Grammy-winning Roc divas Beyonce and Rihanna. The attack was so harsh, it led the TLC frontwoman to say:

Diva supreme Mariah Carey has carved out a career that has shaped the success narratives of many of today’s top starlets. However, it appears (despite being being their inspiration), the 43-year-old isn’t averse to appreciating their output too.
During a press stop at iHeartRadio‘s Saturday Night Online to promote new single ‘You’re Mine (Eternal)’, the mother-of-two revealed that she is a fan of one of today’s top talents, Beyonce. A declaration that comes a week after she told The Breakfast Club she “hadn’t heard” the megastar’s latest chart-topper ‘Drunk In Love’.
The vocalist, whose new album arrives on May 6th via Island Def Jam, also revealed that she is also a fan of Instagram’s own Rihanna.
