Get paid, RiRi.

It has recently been reported that Rihanna gets paid $100,000 to attend a fashion show. Yeah, NBD. JK, it's a very big deal. During Fashion Week(s) throughout the world, @badgalriri attends a lot of shows. She even changed her hair in between two this winter because, y'know, ~fashun~. Gotta switch up your look every once in a while hour. If we are to believe this report to be true, Rihanna makes a pretty penny during Fashion Week, and, so, we imagined a few things she may like to buy with her earnings from attending one show. Of course, if she wants to donate, like, half a fashion show's worth of pay to me, I'd be cool with that too.

Rihanna has been very into bucket hats recently, making us totally rethink our opinion on the accessory. For $100K, Rih could buy 2,500 bucket hats at $40 a pop. If she decides to buy that many bucket hats, let's hope she foresees a future with them–that's enough hats for her to wear a new one every single day for over six years.

Oooh, it's so shiny! Rihanna strutted around SoHo for the launch of her MAC Viva Glam line last night, but honestly, her outfit kinda stole the show. She boldly combined a sparkly purple blazer with an equally sparkly "dream" slogan tee and ruffled navy pencil skirt. That outfit + a gold lamé kerchief = major flight attendant vibes. We have no doubt RiRi could have directed her fair share of traffic in this getup...mainly because EVERY surface was reflective.

Rihanna and Kristen Stewart strip down for new ads.

SEE? We TOLD you the topless trend was happening. (Polar vortex be damned, apparently.) Two major beauty campaigns just dropped, and each ad features a shirtless star. First of all, props to anyone who dares to bare that much skin post-holiday binge. (Celebrities! They're nothing like us!) Second of all, my teeth are chattering just looking at these ladies. Granted, they no doubt had central heating wherever these shoots took place, but everyone else is talking about the weather this week, sooo when in Rome.

Rihanna's Viva Glam collection.

Dry those tears, RihannaNavy! Just when you thought Rihanna's holiday collection with MAC would be her last, she goes and announces that she's the new face of Viva Glam. Viva Glam lipstick was created by MAC in 1994 to benefit women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Every cent from each lipstick sold goes to the MAC AIDS Fund, which is why in recent years, the cosmetics giant has used the selling power of Lady Gaga, Cyndi Lauper and Nicki Minaj for its campaigns. Remember those pics of Nicki Minaj floating in a pool surrounded by giant lipsticks? That was for Viva Glam.

Rihanna posted a photo of her Viva Glam Lipstick and Lipglass to Instagram this morning. Both are sparkly red and bear a striking resemblance to RiRi Woo (which we obvi love). But Rihanna's got big shoes to fill, according to some stats from Nicki Minaj. Her Minajesty claims that her own Viva Glam lipstick was the number 1 selling lipstick of all time. We're not too worried, though: after all, RiRi Woo sold out in 3 hours.

First off, WOW. We know Nicki Minaj's new, simplified style is a very recent change, but staring at Barbz (above) in crimped hair, neon eyeliner and mixed bold prints already feels like forever ago. But wait, let's give this photo some back story first—Nicki tweeted this pic last night with the caption, "#1 selling viva glam lipstick of all time... thank u for supporting a good cause. mmmuuuaaahhh!!!!" to which we audibly responded, "Say whaaaa?!" In case you forgot, Nicki released TWO bold lipsticks—one bright coral color and a super cool lavender shade with two coinciding campaigns. Her impossible-to-forget debut MAC ad featured Ms. Minaj perched atop a motorcycle in a latex dress (next to a very sweaty Ricky Martin) and the other showed Nicki floating a pool sporting a retro yellow onesie surrounded by giant lipsticks.

Nicki Minaj's new Viva Glam lipstick campaign.

You KNOW it's going to be a fantastic day when you're greeted with an image of Nicki Minaj as soon as you turn on your phone to check Twitter first thing. Maybe it's her kooky blonde hair, her yellow bathing suit or her sunshine-y smile, but leave it to Nicki to banish that early morning bleary eyes, foggy brain, and bad mood pretty much IMMEDIATELY. After all, pop stars floating in a pool of purple lipsticks= SO much better than coffee, right?! It's all part of her brand new MAC Viva Glam campaign launching early next year, and we couldn't be more excited. While her former Viva Glam partner-in-crime Ricky Martin was busy working on his own super-smooth lip conditioner, our girl had a solo project of her own in the works. She's trading that Barbie pink lipstick of last season for purple and launching a lavender shade in February. World, are you ready for this?!

Ricky Martin

Breaking news that you already knew: Ricky Martin is really really hot. Nothing makes that more undeniably clear than sitting with him in his Evita green room with five other journalists, all enveloped in the BEST smelling, perfectly humidified air for a The Bachelor-style group date (or round table interview, whatever you prefer to call it *hair flip*). The cause for the mid-week a fairytale moment? Ricky's involvement with MAC Cosmetics' Viva Glam campaign and World AIDS Day (which is Saturday, December 1 a.k.a. tomorrow!). Last night, the Broadway star/philanthropist obliged us all with a few moments before showtime to discuss the collaboration and what it means to him.

Nicki Minaj Ricky Martin MAC Viva Glam

Sometimes there are mornings that are just so. hard. that you'll search everywhere and anywhere on the internets for a little pick-me-up. But this morning, WHEEWWW BOY. The greatness found us. In our inbox landed this pretty little sight—a brand spankin' new image of Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin in the MAC Viva Glam spring 2012 campaign shot by David LaChapelle. But seriously, how awesome is this photo? The longer you stare at it, the more amazing it becomes. Nicki Minaj is crawling on a motorcycle in a hot pink low-cut latex dress (please note the creepy hand holding lipstick rigghhhttt around her slit area) while Ricky Martin is weight-lifting a GIANT lipstick above his head while wearing a sweat-stained gray tank top under a white and black leather motorcycle jacket. His expression reads both excited and slightly out of breath for a confusing mixture of sexy, fun, and sweaty all in one campaign image. Also, is that a giant blue finger in the corner? Just sayin'.

Attention, Little Monsters, Lady Gaga's new video for MAC VIVA GLAM is here and it features YOU!!! As you probably already know, being up-to-date on all things Mama Monster, Our Lady and her BFF/fashion director/Haus of Gaga guru, Nicola Formichetti, created a dress they have dubbed "THE MASTERPIECE" featuring a collage of Little Monster faces. In a word, it's GAH-MAZING. We can't get over how devoted Lady G is to all of her fans as well as to the message behind the VIVA GLAM campaign. Also? This butterfly pixie video is insanely GORGE.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
