Rihanna Visits Chelsea Lately

Published: Friday 11th Mar 2011 by Sam

Model with a mic, Rihanna, is currently Down Under in Australia on the final leg of her ‘Last Girl On Earth Tour’. While in town, the 23 year old stopped by the Chelsea Lately show (which is filming from Sydney this week) for a hilarious chit-chat with host Chelsea Handler.

The pair spoke on everything from Ms. Fenty stripping down (again) for an endorsement, collaborating with Eminem, getting drunk, touring, and much more. As ever, host Handler was hilarious – begining with her introduction of Rihanna as a “singer”.

  24. Ms.Chocolate March 11, 2011

    Anyways, I try to give Rihanna a chance. I want to like her so bad, but something about her rubs me the wrong way. Even after watching this interview. I cant put my finger on it…

  25. celia95 March 11, 2011

    I see that all of U wondr why RIRI is so pale its bcz shes bleaching herself , you can look over his first pictures in 2004 or 2007 you ll see the difference.

  26. JodelGarvin March 11, 2011

    I said Beyawnce not “Beyonce” unless u cant read. If my comment offended u then u have issues. #Dead

    @LAMB 4 LIFE

    She is more successful by the age of 23 than you will ever be in your entire life. Suck on that.

  28. Lifee March 11, 2011


    Get over the fact Rihanna got a hld of Chris pencil d***, something you will never do.Keep stanning for that boy who doesn’t even know you exist #imout

  29. StayFreshYaki March 11, 2011

    I’m not a Rihanna stan but I feel like you all hate on her too much. If you don’t like her singing than don’t cover her. This site could be a classy site if you were a bit more objective. You will never be as big as other blogs. Its just really corny.

  30. Ms.Chocolate March 11, 2011


    B****!, Did you ask me why I typed down what I did, or did you just go ASSuming s***? Bringing other people in this wont change how a feel so your comment was null and void. Stop trying to look for s*** in my comment when their wasnt any, Pressed h**,…..

    @ X Y and Z

    Did you read that article? In the islands there is a different type of racism. The term “White” she is referring to has to do with having lighter skin tones. The same thing happens in the states. They just refer to them as “light skin brothas”. Drake got it in one of his interviews etc. At home I used to get it for that same reason and because I went to a private school and didn’t use my Bahamian accent as often as others.

    So I guess I am asking you not to mislead people there.

    As far as Rihanna. She is the ****

  32. genes March 11, 2011

    @CELIA95 are you tryna say that her brothers are also bleaching their skin coz their light-skinned…Rihanna got her skin color from her dad

  33. Marise March 11, 2011

    rihanna and chelsea make such a funny pair! i wish the interview had been longer… so hilarious! they are both so fun and rihanna seems actually more humble than i thought she would be… great show!

  34. DION-ISH March 11, 2011


    Shes Half Irish….So yea she can particularly be seen as Half White.


    LOVEDDDD The Interview! Chelsea and Rihanna are Hilarious and i couldn’t WAIT til the day she came on her show! So Awesome!! I always New Chelsea was a fan of Rihanna and i never understood why she hadn’t been on the show yet….but yea, and she came chelsea a shoutout at her concert in the Sydney the other night, that was really cool…but Great Interview, Rihanna is thee COOLEST, Hottest Chick…She’ll make you go DAMN #jealous lol

  35. DION-ISH March 11, 2011



    Trent and Sam are like Bitter High School b****** that are mad they cant get CB d***!


    Anyway, Ive been OVER there shade, i just laugh and smile at it, it can be funny….But im confident in my b****, i love her voice, music, style etc. and i could give 2 fuks less! Shes slaying Literally…My Life and they can continue hating, its quit entertaining really to watch others make a fool of themselves….There sooo pressed, they dont even notice it.

    I thought it was her father that was half-Irish, thereby making Rihanna 1/4 Irish, not half.

    @3:27 —

    But you’re not “white” NOR “light skinned” (or you’d have said as much, now are you?) And it’s NOT what “the article said”, it’s what “Rihanna had said(what SHE thinks): I’m white!” Not that I’m from a well-to-do family; not that I’m from “old money” – NO! RIHANNA THINKS SHE’S WHITE!!

    And it’s “not only/just” what SHE said, as reported by THAT article. It’s also what she said during this Chelsea Handler interview (re: the black folk of Australia): “They are usually really, really, REALLY DARK.” Notice how she hurries up and “cleans-up” and, at the end, then says “Oh dark is also good..?”

    (Again, I’ll reiterate..) It’s NOTHING to do with “cast stratification” based solely on who has more loot, NO! Those lines, that are….”cast” are then further reinforced with/by SKIN COLOR! The lighter you are, the better-off you are!

    So YES, I read the article. And NO it’s not only based on one’s bank account (in rhianna’s case) it’s based on SKIN COLOR (Rihanna thinks she’s white).

    (again)…And what SHE said during THAT interview, and what she’s quoted saying in that article (…a confluence of events/evidence…) only reinforces HER “imagined reality: RIHANNA THINKS SHE’S WHITE…!!”

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT…!!

  42. Tha Phoenix March 11, 2011

    Rih always makes me laugh in her interviews. And I love that she’s gotten the red hair under control, because that look she had going at the Grammy preparties…


    *sips Martini*

  43. DION-ISH March 11, 2011


    My Point was that Yes, Shes Also Irish, Whatever percentage it is.

    @X,Y,”AND Z”

    Funny You DM me ALL this BS about how you really arent this person and how you’ve changed from hating etc etc. BUT….here you are, doing the same thing, Just….uh huh!

    I am and I did say so LMAO.

    “At home I used to get it for that same reason and because I went to a private school and didn’t use my Bahamian accent as often as others.”

    HAHAHA. You may need to learn to read and comprehend lol. I said I got it for that same reason (RING DING DING). I would never call myself white. Of mixed heritage yeah but what I’m trying to tell you is that people do attack people using the term “white”. I’m pretty sure Rihanna know’s she’s not white.

    If you need me to give you a history lesson hit me up on my twitter @AalexisR. It begins with a white Scottish s**** owner in the Bahamas in the Exumas who married a nice West Indian lady. That’s only my Dad’s side. Don’t get me started on my mom’s because it is even longer.

    My comment was also just giving you other examples of why people in the islands label others “white”. It had nothing to do with who has more money. That is just reality of the situation.

  47. sheila March 11, 2011

    Why are black ppl in the USA, obsessed with skin colour?????? If you go to South African countries, there are so many light skinned ppl who are a result of European settlers and African women mostly and a few men, but they don’t give a f**** about their skin tone compared to the dark skinned ones. In fact they (guys) always go for dark skinned women, because they don’t fuss about their beautiful features #that’s all#

  48. Maria March 11, 2011

    @ XYZ. There you go again trying to spread downright LIES. If you watch the video and listen, you would see that at 3:42, she said , ‘One of US’ meaning BLACK people.
    Btw, if ALL of the six year old kids are very dark and not exposed to other races; wouldn’t a pale Rihanna be the closest thing to white that they know?
    Get you six year old mentality the f**k out of here!
    Maria and Out!

  49. uhh March 11, 2011

    @xyz rihanna does not think she is white. How foolish do you sound. Her mom is dark and so are her maternal grandparents and loads of people in her family. Are you stupid or something. Trying to say she does not know her heritage. Plus she said when she looks out in the audience and sees one of US. Meaning she considers herself to be one with her BLACK RACE. You are always trying to start things. I bet you were a gossip and trouble maker in school specializing in lies. You just think of something and write it down and go from blog to blog posting your lies. When you can’t destroy rihanna any other way you have now resorted to saying she thinks she is white. Just because you know race is a sensitve topic in america and statements like those would incite people against rihanna. I hope most people are not foolish enough to fall for your bait. And to rise against your fuckery.

  50. uhh March 11, 2011


    And this talentless c*** has your attention. So even the haters stay tuned. ( she be killing them)

  51. uhh March 11, 2011

    Rihanna is a humble and down to earth person. Love this interview shows her approachable and fun side. Cause if you leave it to these blogs, you would think rihanna is an ice princess or something, when she far from that. That’s why her fans love and support her. Haters can go dive off a cliff.

  52. Cheah March 11, 2011

    The fact that her stans go hard for her and younger people are idiots who wouldn’t know talent and class if it smacked their mother f***** their sister came down stairs smacked them then went and f***** their mom to even the score is the reason why you have Rihanna, Britney and all the other talentless divas now. her fans may give her the hits. But still no album that’s number 1 in the US Which counts the most). Anybody could be where rihanna is now with the right team and a little payola.

  53. malayka March 11, 2011

    Riri u’r a w****,,how can u talked about dark pple, b**** u aint white ya bleach ur f****** face 2 be more lightin now u talking s*** about black,, b**** pleaz i’m not racist but most of black pple made u who u are 2day,,b**** Jayz aint white how you looked at him,,some of artist is like dat when dey need us 2 buy they stuff dey say dey love all they fans when dey have dey money they ignored us dats right i aint fan no artist bcuz dey all b****** like Rihanna,,i got family in Barbados dey all black its rare 2 see white pple in Barbados u talking Shiit w****

  55. uhh March 11, 2011

    @cheah where have you been when rihanna was dominating with the #1 album in the world LOUD for weeks. Number 1 album in the world trumps number 1 anywhere else. What would you rather be ms. USA or Ms. World. Okay then. Rihanna rules !!

  56. uhh March 11, 2011

    Rihanna never said anything bad about dark people just that they were dark and beautiful. She was appreciating the beauty that comes with dark skin. After all her dark skinned mother contributed to her beauty. So I doubt she was being condesending to dark skinned individuals. She was happy to see them there in Australia, one of US she said. Some of you are so pathetic. you have to resort to race baiting to come at rihanna. Rihanna is a caribbean chic. So black runs all up and through her veins and she knows it. So take your race hating ignorance somewhere else.

  57. KaVion March 11, 2011

    @5:33 pm —

    I’ll ‘take a pass’ on your “history lesson offer”; your history does not interest me, not in the slightest. (…sorry to disappoint you, no disrespect intended!)

    (Now, regarding reading COMPREHENSION…) It’s quite obvious that Rihanna isn’t from $$$ – evidenced in her “street-peddling hustle-huckster father.” Nor could she have ever been thought to be bourgeois/upper-middle class. It’s woefully evident that Rihanna may have wanted FOR “social mobility”, but given her reality, it was little more than her want!

    What you’re basing your argument(s) on is pure supposition, disjointed logic, and thus flawed reasoning…

    Rihanna said that she was “bullied for being white”.
    She wasn’t bullied for having a crack-head street-peddler father.
    She was NOT bullied for having a mother who was her “husband’s enabler.”
    She was NOT bullied for having a mother who didn’t have enough sense to get out of a bad relationship/marriage…NO!
    …She was bullied because SHE thought of herself BETTER than others due to HER lacking skin pigmentation!

    Now, mind you, Rihanna made these revelations AFTER stardom. If she’s NOW in a “bigger world” why even bother to consider/lament such to begin with?

    “I’m pretty sure Rihanna know’s she’s not white.” <– Oh? And how do YOU know this? Are you privy to Rihanna's conscience?

    And I did say, it was THE confluence of evidence/events: her past revelation, and what she said in this interview regarding "really, really, REALLY DARK blacks of Australia." (I'll not even rehash her fawning/raving over Jesse Williams' blue eyes as further evidence for/of her love of 'Euro Ethnocentric')

    (In conclusion…) Given those facts – Rihanna's previous statement – and now this stunning observation of hers: RIHANNA THINKS SHE'S WHITE…!!

You obviously still don’t comprehend the fact that I was not referring to your understanding of Rihanna but to what you gleaned from my comment. A comment that you took the wrong way.

    At least you’re entertaining. You may not be interested in my history lesson but I’m more interested in what craziness goes on in your idiotic consciousness. No offense man, woman or creature. I can’t tell because we’re usually defined by two chromosomes, X and Y.

    where is beyonce?!?! what happened to the queen? WE NEED YOUUU

  66. Musically-Inclined March 12, 2011

    I am SERIOUSLY irritated WITH all of the HATERS on this WEBSITE. What’s your deal with Rihanna? Are you all jealous BECAUSE you can’t be her?
    SHE is 23 AND doing far more then ANY of you EVER will. She is successful, beautiful, and she has a great personality (including a bomb ass sense of humor). She tops the charts AND actually produces great music. I have seen her in Concert twice & the last time I checked she actually could SING. No, her vocals may not be identical to Jennifer Hudson, Whitney Houston, Fantasia, Aretha, or hell, EVEN Beyonces. BUT the girl does have talent none-the-less AND she puts on a great show.
    I think most OF you hate her because of the situation that occured back in 08 with both her and Chris Brown & if that is the CASE, GET OVER IT! They are both young talented artists who have ventured off unto their own lives AND are trying their best to move on and be successful. Let them live.
    BTW, ladies YOUR never going to get a chance with Chris Brown so you can all hang that up. Your mad because Rihanna had his pencil d*** and you guys wish you could have it.

    SO, with that being said, THAT GRAPE JUICE & ALL RIHANNA HATERS can STFU and #DIE because regardless of WHAT YOU SAY or HOW YOU FEEL, mami is doing her thing & shes good at it.

    KUDOS to Rihanna. #Out.

  67. Musically-Inclined March 12, 2011


    BTW, what kind of F****** website is this? This is not proffesional at all. You interview artists AND promote them, you don’t DOWN them. stripping down AGAIN? You find it hilarious because Chelsea Handler called her a “Singer”?

    Sounds like someones jealous. Did you guys maybe ASK Rihanna to do a Interview AND maybe she declined? Hmm.

    Why DONT you guys KEEP on interviewing WACK ass people like Bow Wow & Keep it moving. Rihanna WILL be successful REGARDLESS of your ranting and ignorance!
