Rihanna has been seeing a lot of Drake lately, and apparently she’s been hearing a lot of him too. The “Diamonds” singer referenced Drake’s latest single in a tweet on Aug. 30. Was RiRi trying to diss her ex Chris in the process?
Rihanna is up to her old tricks again. On Aug. 30, she tweeted an Instagram pic of her friends Pharell and Mel Ottenberg with the caption, “ILL ni**a alert x ILL ni**a alert,” a lyric from Drake’s new song “All Me.” Is the “Diamonds” singer dissing her ex Chris Brownby expressing her preference for Drake‘s music — and his company?

Rihanna On Drake’s New Song, ‘All Me’ — Is Tweet A Diss At Chris Brown?
The lyrics Rihanna, 25, quoted are said by 2 Chainzin Drake’s track “All Me,” which also features rapper Big Sean.
Rihanna spent the past weekend kissing and canoodling with Drake, 26, and now she’s referencing a line in his new jam. It certainly seems like she’s sending Chris another one of her infamous subliminal Twitter messages! Maybe she’s trying to make her ex jealous after his recent romantic getaway with on-again, off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran – and from what we know about Chris’ longtime rivalry with Drake, it just might work!
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, things are getting steamy between Rihanna and Drake as the two were reportedly caught kissing at a post-VMA party, two days after the rapper planted a gentle kiss on RiRi's cheek during an intimate dinner date in New York City. It seems like things are really heating up between the two artists! Is Rihanna just using Drake to get back at Chris or could this be the real thing?
Rihanna’s Weekend Filled With Kisses From Drake
When Drake entered the PH-D rooftop lounge at the Dream Downtown for a VMA after party in New York on Aug. 26, Rihanna was ”the first person he kissed on the cheek,” an eyewitness told the New York Post.
Not only that, Drake gave Rihanna a "gentle" kiss on the cheek after an intimate dinner date at Sons Of Essex in New York on Aug. 23.
"He gave her a hug and kissed her on the cheek," a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. "It wasn't anything major, it was just Drake being himself."
We're also told that when Rihanna was ready to leave, Drake pulled out all the stops and acted like an "old school" chivalrous man.
"He was such a gentleman," the source gabs. "He had one of his muscle [bodyguards] scoot her chair back, he stood up after she did and he told her she 'looked beautiful as always.'"
So romantic! How can Rihanna resist?
Now it’s your turn to sound off, HollywoodLifers. Do YOU think Rihanna is using Drake to diss Chris?

Lamar Odom‘s DUI arrest on Aug. 30 might be the last straw for his wife, Khloe Kardashian. The reality star is “fed up” with Lamar’s antics and she is thinking about pulling the plug on their marriage, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
Lamar Odom’s Arrest For DUI — Will This End Marriage To Khloe Kardashian?
Khloe, 29, was so upset when she learned Lamar, 33, was arrested for a DUI that all she could say was, ”Unfu**ingbelievable,” a source close to the family tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Everybody is going to bat for this guy and he turns around and does something stupid like this,” the source says. “I always said this was going to be something hard for him to kick, I just didn’t know he would mess up like this so soon. I don’t know how much Khloe can take.”
As Lamar continues to battle his alleged drug addiction, our source tells us that Khloe is “the best support” he has and that if she decides to leave the marriage, Lamar will be a wreck.
“If she backs out on him now, it’s a wrap for Lamar,” the source says. “She’s got people in her ear telling her to ‘bail on Lamar’ and saying sh** like, ‘You’ve done all you can do, now it’s his turn.’”
“But Khloe’s got her own mind and will make her own decisions,” the source continues, adding that “Lamar is putting her through the ringer and it’s unfair.”
“I know she’s going to do her best to help him but for how much longer?”
Meanwhile, Khloe is trying to put on a brave face. On the early afternoon of Aug. 30, she Instagrammed a photo of herself looking very glam, smiling for the camera with her friends. The caption said, “Omg you can totally not sit with us,” a popular reference to the movie Mean Girls. Khloe is carrying on with her business and trying not to let Lamar’s issues get her down, and we don’t blame her for trying to create a positive moment.
Lamar Odom Busted For DUI

Selena’s new film ‘The Getaway’ hit theaters to terrible reviews on Aug. 30, and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned how she feels about getting slammed by the critics.
The Getaway currently has a score of 2 percent on the film review site Rotten Tomatoes, which is a rating usually reserved for the worst movies of all time. But one person who isn’t too concerned about that is the star of the film, Selena Gomez. Read on to find out all the EXCLUSIVE details about how she’s handling all this negativity.
Selena Gomez On ‘Getaway’ Reviews — She’s Unconcerned With Negative Comments
Poor Selena! Well-respected movie reviewers like Rolling Stone‘s Peter Travers are totally dissing her new movie The Getaway. “The damage to your brain while watching it is incalculable,” Peter said in his review.
It doesn’t stop there – Bilge Ebiri of Vulture stated, “It may be the dumbest movie released this summer.”
Ouch! We were really starting to feel bad for Selena, but it turns out she’s staying positive about her involvement in the panned flick, a source close to the actress tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Sure she would love to get great reviews on all of her work but she has gotten to a point in her career where she does the work she wants to do and doesn’t really focus on what critics will say about it,” the source reveals, adding, ”She isn’t really thinking about it, nor will she put much thought into it.”
Good for her! We’re so glad Selena has such an optimistic outlook, because it would be so easy for her to get caught up in what the critics have to say and feel hurt about their negative reviews.
We commend Selena for having a strong head on her shoulders!
Selena Gomez Is The Bright Spot Of the Film, Critics Say
Its not all bad for Selena, as some reviewers say they respect her for her role and consider it the best part about an otherwise awful movie. Here are some positive words about Selena:
During a brief respite after the opening melee, a feisty teen (Gomez) appears brandishing a handgun and claiming to be the Shelby's rightful owner. But despite the brusque meet-cute, Gomez's unnamed character (billed only as "The Girl") isn't quite the girl-gone-wild she played to great effect earlier this year in Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers." In this pic's fanciful universe, she's supposed to be a whiz-kid computer hacker…
New York Times
Just when the vicarious thrill of watching him obey the Voice's order to "smash everything you can" loses its novelty, Brent is carjacked by the Kid (Selena Gomez), a shrill, bossy young woman with a baby face and a chip on her shoulder.
Sounds like Selena saved the show! So HollywoodLifers, is it possible that all the critics are wrong? Are you proud of Selena for standing up for her film? Will YOU go see The Getaway? Sound off below!

Laura, a jewelry designer based out of Southampton, noticed that after her son Brandon was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, that there was no symbol for the disease. That’s when she took matters into her own hands and designed a symbol and founded ‘A New Leaf For Diabetes.’ She hopes the leaf will become an international symbol of hope for people affected by Diabetes.
Laura Bee has spent her entire life living and breathing the detrimental affects that Type 1 Diabetes has had on her 23-year-old son, Brandon Bee, who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 10. With the help of Southampton Social Club’s annual 2013 Charity Hamptons Poker Challenge on Sept 1, she’s hoping to get the attention of the American Diabetes Association to make this the official symbol for the cause!
Laura Bee Creates ‘A New Leaf For Diabetes’ — Her Inspiration
Brandon was also diagnosed with ulcerative colitis later in life, and things got so bad for him that at one point doctor’s were worried his colon was at the point of perforation. That’s when he was raced into emergency surgery.
Laura tells us that it was while she sat in the waiting room at the hospital for Brandon to get out of surgery, she was flipping through a magazine and came across breast cancer’s international symbol: the pink ribbon.
“I thought to myself, diabetes doesn’t have a symbol,” she told us. “Why not? So that’s when I decided to show my son my commitment to his disease and to him and really do something for him. So I created the leaf.”
Laura didn’t just stop at creating the leaf, she founded a company and campaign called: “A New Leaf For Diabetes.” The mission is to raise diabetes awareness and help fun research.
She tells us that she felt the simple, single leaf would signify the symbol of life. Although the United Nations created a global symbol of the blue circle in 2006, it has not been made the official symbol for the cause, there is not one right now.
Brandon is one of the lucky ones. He survived. He has a deep inner strength that just refuses to give in to this disease. Likewise, modern medical advances in the battle to combat diabetes, allowed his life to be saved. Only a decade or so back, the life of a child in a similar situation would likely have been lost. We’ve gone through an additional 5 surgeries since. Brandon’s on the road to recovery, but his type 1 diabetes will have to managed for the rest of his life.
Southampton Social Club Hosts Poker Event For New Leaf For Diabetes
Laura partnered with Southampton Social Club’s 2013 Charity Hamptons Poker Challenge, to be held on Sept. 1, to help bring awareness to her mission. The event, which is in its third year, is being presented by Haute Living and Paige Hospitality Group. It’s the perfect way to celebrate Labor Day weekend and give back.
Each ticket is $150 and gets you a seat at one of the poker tables, food and alcohol. Plus, the venue is gorgeous and there’s no better way to spend a summer afternoon.
Taylor loves to sing and dance along to live performances — even if she has to do it from her chair at an awards show. But apparently Rihanna was not a fan of Tay’s sing-alongs at the VMAs on Aug. 25. Read on for all the details!
While Taylor Swift‘s countless fans love to hear her sing and dance,Rihanna, who was sitting nearby,thought Taylor’s seat-singing at the MTV Video Music Awards was inappropriate, and she dissed the “Red” singer to her seatmate.
Rihanna Disses Taylor Swift At VMAs — She ‘Ain’t Cute’
There’s a time and place to sing and dance, and ironically the MTV VMAs is not it — at least according to Rihanna, 25. At one point during the show, the “Diamonds” singer turned to the person sitting next to her to slam Taylor’s sing-alongs, according to a new report from Us Weekly.
“She’s making a scene,” Rihanna reportedly said. “She ain’t cute.”
Ouch! Taylor, 23, can’t seem to catch a break at the VMAs. But we’re sure RiRi’s comment won’t get the strong-willed singer down. In fact, she’ll probably sing even louder at the next awards show!
Taylor Swift: Did She Diss One Direction At The MTV VMAs?
Rihanna wasn’t the only one sharing secrets with her seatmate at the VMAs. People are still trying to decipher what Taylor whispered to her best pal Selena Gomez when her ex Harry Styles took the stage to present an award at the event. Many fans speculated the feisty singer told One Direction to "Shut the f**k up," and we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s true.
We’re very familiar with Taylor’s contempt for Harry, but now it seems she hates the boy band as a whole. When band mate Zayn Malik, newly-engaged to Perrie Edwards, said that the "best fans are in New York," Taylor turned to Selena and was caught mouthing something that looked an awful lot like "Shut the f**k up," with an exasperated and annoyed look on her face.
The VMAs is really becoming the place to diss and be dissed!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did Taylor make a scene by singing in her seat at the VMAs?
