Someone alert the Navy, because Rihanna has landed another major magazine cover.
The 27-year-old singer has been revealed as the star of Vanity Fair’s 2015 November issue, which features sexy photos shot by world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz in Old Havana, Cuba.
Rihanna also gets very real in the cover story, touching on everything from her relationship with Chris Brown to her upcoming music projects to her see-through CFDA dress that had everyone talking.
“I wanted to wear something that looked like it was floating on me,” she toldVanity Fair. “But after that, I thought, O.K., we can’t do this again for a while. No nipples, no sexy shit, or it’s going to be like a gimmick. That night [at the C.F.D.A. awards] was like a last hurrah; I decided to take a little break from that and wear clothes.”
Clearly, she is no longer on that break. You can read the full interview here.
With the premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel now just weeks away from finally satiating horror-hungry fans, FX is wasting little time hyping Lady Gaga’s distinctly Gaga-esque character The Countess. The Countess, also known simply as Elizabeth, is the enviably well-dressed owner of the infamous Hotel Cortez. According to Gaga, the main source of fashion inspiration for The Countess was the inimitable Daphne Guinnness.
“I’ve just been weeping while I’m here because I have returned to something I’ve believed in so much, which is the art of darkness,” Gaga told Entertainment Weekly earlier this year. “It’s not something that everyone understands, but, for the people that do — Horror Story fans, my fans — there is a true connection between us and it’s a language within itself.”
American Horror Story: Hotel, which also stars Kathy Bates and Chloë Sevigny, is set to unveil the first of 13 new episodes on October 7 via FX.

In the lead up to one of the most highly-anticipated sequels of 2016, Zoolander II, we’ve seen both Zoolander and Hansel — played by Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson — close out Valentino’s runway show for fall/winter 2015, as well as several announcements of notable celebrities set to make cameo appearances. There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the movie, however, the world has been eagerly waiting to catch a glimpse of the first trailer, which launched yesterday. The short kicks off with what sounds like a narration by Stephen Hawking about the Big Bang theory and evolution, before Derek interjects with his words of wisdom, seemingly questioning the name of his own movie. Zoolander II is expected to hit the silver screen during February 2016.
Not content with last year’s cinematic foray into space in Interstellar, Matt Damon is to return in Ridley Scott’s forthcoming adaptation of the Andy Weir novel The Martian. In the first trailer for the film, slated for release on November 25, we see Damon having fun with his fellow NASA crew-mates as they prepare for their trip to Mars, in a lighthearted video-log style teaser. The synopsis for the full movie is set to take a darker tone, with Damon’s character being stranded on the planet after a huge storm when his crew, played by Sebastian Stan, Kate Mara, Aksel Hennie, Jessica Chastain and Michael Pena, assume him dead. Keep an eye out for more detailed, plot-driven trailers in the coming months.
