lolo-jones

Drake signed on to host the 2014 ESPYs earlier this week. As expected, there have been a variety of opinions about whether he will be the right man for the job. The most viral opinion following the announcement has come from Lolo Jones, who decided to take a shot at Rihanna after hearing the big news.

For those of you who don’t keep up on gossip, Drake and Rihanna were supposedly “all over each other” at a club recently and were spotted making out. They also both attended a recent Los Angeles Clippers game.

Rihanna makes Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks her Man Crush Monday

Mychael Kendricks’ career is looking up. The Philadelphia Eagles linebacker not only had a great season, but he is also the object of affection for singer Rihanna.

There’s a game on Instagram where women can list their “Man Crush” on Mondays by posting a photo of a guy and tagging it #MCM for “Man Crush Monday.” The same goes for guys with #WCW on “Woman Crush Wednesday.”

On Monday, Rihanna listed Kendricks, a second-year linebacker from Cal, as her “Man Crush Monday.”

Chael Sonnen squeezes in a domestic abuse joke about Rihanna

Chael-SonnenBy now most of us know how Chael Sonnen is. The aging MMA fighter says pretty much whatever is on his mind, no matter how weird it sounds or how much trouble it might get him into. On Monday night, Sonnen somehow squeezed a Rihanna domestic violence joke into a discussion about Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The basis of Sonnen’s argument was that Mayweather is protecting his undefeated record by fighting “tomato cans that nobody has ever heard of.” He used that stance to toss in a tasteless joke that he had clearly rehearsed.

“I’ve never seen anybody in America get so rich and so famous off of having complete wimps throw punches at their face,” Sonnen said of Mayweather. “And I know what you’re saying, ‘Well it’s happened before, what about Rihanna?’”

You can watch a video clip of Sonnen’s comment at Deadspin. He then asked if his joke was “too soon,” to which many people would respond that there will never be a time when joking about beating a woman is acceptable.

Again, this was classic Sonnen. It wouldn’t be as bad if the joke accidentally slipped out, but he’s always looking to create headlines by saying something controversial or completely off the reservation. As this weird exchange with ESPN’s Sage Steele reminded us, Chael loves doing and saying idiotic things on camera.

JR Smith responds to Rihanna club claims with ‘Men in Black’ meme

JR Smith Men in Black

JR Smith responded to all the Rihanna gossip by posting a “Men in Black” meme to his Instagram account on Friday.

The meme shows Will Smith’s character in “Men in Black” holding up a neuralyzer, which is a tool he and Tommy Lee Jones’ character use in the movie series to erase the memory of subjects by flashing a light in their eyes.

Smith and Rihanna were rumored to be dating a year ago. The rumors flared up again last week after the two were photographed nearby each other at a club.

It’s not clear whether Smith meant he wanted to use a neuralyzer on Rihanna to erase her memory of their relationship, or on all the club-goers who have ratted him out for partying.

Rihanna responded to a fan on Thursday by saying Smith is performing poorly in the playoffs because he’s hungover from partying at clubs every night. Before the Knicks’ 85-75 Game 5 win over the Pacers, Smith dismissed the questions about Rihanna. He went 4-for-11 and had 13 points. He is shooting 29.3 percent for the series.

Rihanna: JR Smith slumping because he’s hungover from partying in clubs

JR Smith Rihanna

J.R. Smith has been shooting the ball terribly during the playoffs, and Rihanna says that’s because the New York Knicks guard is hungover from partying in clubs every night.

Smith shot the ball well in Games 2 and 3 of the Knicks-Boston Celtics series, which the Knicks won in six games. He went 13-of-27 (48 percent) including 4-9 (44 percent) on 3-pointers those two games. But after being suspended for Game 4 of the series for his elbow to Jason Terry in Game 3, Smith began shooting terribly.

Smith has shot an abysmal 28.6 percent from the field since Game 5 against the Celtics. No surprise, New York has struggled accordingly and only gone 2-4 in those playoff games. Now Rihanna has an explanation for his struggles.

Smith and Rihanna were rumored to have been dating last year. The gossip about them picked up again last week after they were pictured partying at the same club. Rihanna also confirmed she broke up with Chris Brown.

The singer posted a photo to her popular Instagram account on Thursday and must have received a comment from a Knicks fan who goes by @peruvian_gawd on Instagram. She responded to him with the message below where she says Smith is screwing up because he’s hungover from partying at clubs every night:

Matt Kemp said the attention he received from dating Rihanna was ‘overwhelming’

As an MVP candidate and someone making $160 million playing in the city of Los Angeles, Matt Kemp must be accustomed to the celebrity lifestyle. Kemp is 27 years old and one of the brightest young stars in baseball. He has done fashion shoots for magazines and dated celebrities. If $160 million isn’t an indication that you’ve made it, being able to say you dated Rihanna certainly seals the deal. However, Kemp says that portion of his life was a stressful time.

“It was pretty much overwhelming,” Kemp told Yahoo! Sports (via The Oklahoman) when asked about his relationship with the five-time Grammy Award winner. “It’s not something I’m used to. I’m not used to going to a grocery store or to just somewhere simple and people following me around. It’s overwhelming.”

When Kemp goes out in public, rabid baseball fans probably run up to him asking for an autograph or a picture. When Rihanna goes out in public, almost everyone runs up to her asking for an autograph or a picture. Such is the life of athletes dating celebrities, and considering he was later linked to Eva Longoria it doesn’t sound like it’s a life that bothers Kemp all that much. Another interesting aside: Kemp likes to judge women by their shoes.

“I can tell that (women) know what they’re doing or they don’t know what they’re doing (by their shoes),” Kemp explained. “I’ve always liked shoes. I peep everybody’s shoes out to see what they’re rocking.”

Rihanna and Eva probably have some great footwear in their wardrobe, so I guess it makes sense. Any ladies who were hoping to date Matt Kemp that wear Chuck Taylor’s should probably reconsider.

J.R. Smith and Rihanna reportedly have been seeing each other for weeks

We shared a report two weeks that said Knicks guard J.R. Smith and singer Rihanna were getting cozy together at a club, prompting speculation that the two were dating. Now we have a second report saying they’ve been seeing each other.

The New York Daily News says the two have been spending time together for weeks, and that they were hanging out in South Beach over the weekend.

Smith was arrested late last Thursday night in Miami Beach after a routine traffic stop that showed he had a warrant out for not addressing a past ticket. Maybe Rihanna was there to bail him out.
