Rihanna Covers Elle’s December Issue Ahead Of New Album

rihanna elle thatgrapejuice 600x815 Rihanna Covers Elles December Issue Ahead Of New Album

And it begins.

If there was any doubt about the imminent release of Rihanna‘s eighth studio album, it was dispelled moments ago when the star’s new Elle magazine cover was unveiled.

As has become routine with the melodic model, a new campaign is often paired with an onslaught of magazine covers, a collage of candy coloured wigs, and wild Instagram antics – the latter of which has already begun.

The looming nature of the project, delayed by almost a year, does leave us wondering how Ms. Fenty plans to roll it out. Surely, she can’t be planning a Beyonce-styled ambush? Granted, she has a vast fan-base and is smartly using her creative block to heighten anticipation, she doesn’t possess a universal enough audience to risk such a release. Perhaps for a single, but an album…not so much. After all, each of her LP’s have the uncanny ability to just stop selling around the 1 million mark.

Will she reverse her fortunes this go round? The answer appears to be approaching sooner rather than later.

Rihanna Returns To Instagram Ahead Of New Album

rihanna instagram thatgrapejuice Rihanna Returns To Instagram Ahead Of New Album

Given Rihanna‘s talent deficiencies, the model has consistently crutched on a multitude of platforms to maintain relevancy.

One of the most notable has been Instagram.

Whether posing in the streets after a night of partying or throwing jibes at her chart rivals, RiRi has managed to use the ‘gram as her most powerful press tool. Indeed, her antics on the social media site seem almost designed to be headline grabbing — and it works.

As such, many were confused when the star abruptly blocked her profile from the public early this year. We weren’t, though.

From where we stand, it was a masterclass in press manipulation. For, when there’s nothing to promote, why be in folks faces? Lay low and reserve it until when needed.

And it appears that’s exactly what the diva has done.

This evening she reactivated her profile, much to the delight of her 12 million followers. The timing of the “return” and the inevitable articles it’ll spurn (such as the one you’re reading) has many speculating about whether it hints at the imminent release of Rih’s much delayed 8th album? Time will tell.

In the meanwhile, check out the 26-year-old’s first pics back below…

Hot Shot: Rihanna Hangs With Ashanti On Halloween

rihanna ashanti thatgrapjuice 600x600 Hot Shot: Rihanna Hangs With Ashanti On Halloween

Well isn’t this interesting.

As reported, a whose who of Hollywood was out in full force last night to celebrate Halloween. And with a multitude of different events taking place in parallel, it was a given that stars would run into one another.

Such was the case for Rihanna and Ashanti, who posed it up together at a party.

Intriguingly, besides a ensemble song for ‘Stand Up To Cancer’ back in 2008, the ladies paths have never crossed before. Unique given the similarities their careers have.

Indeed, Ashanti rose to prominence on Def Jam as part of a collective – Murder Inc / Rihanna is currently signed to the same label by way of Roc Nation. What’s more, Rih is routinely touted as a “rival” to the better-selling Beyonce, who once upon a time was the main chart-thorn in the side of Ashanti’s dominance. Clearly, much has changed since then – although Bey’s “step ahead, level above” status continues plague both ladies. Nonetheless, we digress…

Is it us or could both stars benefit from what the other has? Ashanti from Ms. Fenty’s ability to stay commercially relevant and Rihanna from Ashanti’s vocal strides? They should mingle more…
