Rihanna is playing no games in her quest for entrepreneurial excellence.

As we reported, the ‘Wild Thoughts’ wailer teamed with LVMH to launch her very own fashion house – simply named Fenty.

The move sees RiRi become the first Black woman to run a luxury line under such an umbrella. Fenty is also LVMH’s first original label to be established since 1987.

Suffice to say, she has much to celebrate. And that’s exactly what she did last night at the official launch of the brand in Paris.

(“Biggie Smalls”).

During the festivities (May 21), Cease grabbed the mic to apologize to his once-estranged friend.  As fans of both artists know, their fallout stems from 2005 when he testified against her in a case that led to her imprisonment and fining for perjury.  Although she has gone on record many times to say she was no longer associated with him due to the incident, it appears things have changed.
