The Grammy winner Rihanna hasn’t released an album since releasing Anti in January 2016, which featured the top-charting singles ‘Work’ with Drake, ‘Needed Me,’ ‘Kiss It Better,’ and ‘Love on the Brain.’
Since then, the singer has repeatedly hinted at her upcoming project, but delays have been caused by various endeavors, including the launch of her multimillion-dollar Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin brands and giving birth to her first child, a newborn boy, with ASAP Rocky.
Rihanna stated that she was “in the studio and working on new music,” when she made her appearance on The Graham Norton Show in June 2018. “You’ll simply have to wait and see,” she teased while remaining silent about the details.

The Barbados native remained silent when prompted for an update 15 months later. In September 2019, she said, “Well, obviously, I’m a confident woman, so whatever I do, it’s gon’ be confident — whether it’s the album, perfume, lingerie, makeup, or fashion. Navy, you’ll have to wait. I’m so sorry.”
Rihanna to perform at Super Bowl
In recent months, Rihanna has also been spotted actively working in the studio, where she is reportedly concentrating on her Super Bowl performance. The mother of one received the much-sought halftime slot when she was officially announced to perform at the major sporting event back in September.
The Super Bowl is the annual final playoff game of the National Football League to determine the league champion, which is going to take place on February 12.
Rihanna, the game’s halftime performer and the first ever to have her performance sponsored by Apple Music, released the first trailer for it as the official countdown to the 2023 Super Bowl began.
The trailer begins with a spotlight on a black background and a collage of media voices saying, “It’s been 2,190 days… More than six years had passed. Everyone is waiting for Rihanna…”
The video alternates between Rihanna standing and strolling toward the camera while donning a fluffy green jacket and an extravagant braid in her hair. The sound eventually stops as the voices blend into nonsense, the picture goes dark, and all that is left is Rihanna putting the “Shh” finger to her lips and a small excerpt of ‘Needed Me’ from her most recent album, Anti.
Is Rihanna releasing her 9th album after the Super Bowl?
At her Savage x Fenty lingerie show in November, she answered the inevitable new album question by saying, “That’s not true. Super Bowl is one thing. New music is another thing. Do you hear that, fans?” she laughed. “The second that I announced this, I said, ‘Oh, my God, they’re going to think my album is coming. I need to get to work,'” Rihanna said.
Last year’s Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show included a star-studded cast of musicians, including Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Dr. Dre. Five Creative Arts Emmy nominations were received for the performance, and it won three of them, including an outstanding live variety special, a first for the Halftime show.
A Twitter account with the name, PopBase, shared news saying, “Variety VIP+ speculates that Rihanna’s highly anticipated 9th studio album will drop right after the Super Bowl.”
Rihanna is also getting ready to announce a worldwide tour. The ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker has recently taken a break from performing and traveling; she last did so in the UK in 2016.
As per the source, she has her North American dates ready to announce for 2023 after the Super Bowl, and it will be a matter of time before European dates are published for 2024, seemingly guaranteeing an epic comeback.
DJ Diplo Gets Accused of Giving a Fan STDs amid AIDS Controversy
DJ Diplo has faced multiple accusations of transmitting STDs and AIDS.
American DJ Diplo has recently come under scrutiny as he faces accusations of transmitting sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) to a fan amidst an ongoing AIDS controversy.
During a recent episode of the Let’s Get Into It Podcast, Sloan Hooks interviewed a fan who shared a shocking revelation about her experience with Diplo. The interviewee disclosed she contracted STDs from the DJ.
She explained that Diplo had consistently emphasized his rigorous STD testing regimen, comparing it to that of a star, which led her to believe he was free of infections and subsequently led them to engage in intimate activities without using contraceptives.
Later, when the host inquired how she could be sure that DJ was the one who transmitted the STDs, she explained that he was the only sexual partner with whom she had been intimate without using contraception.
The woman went on to elaborate, revealing that in the beginning, she hesitated to attribute the source of the infection to Diplo because she was apprehensive about his reactions every time she brought up the topic of STDs.
She also shared the details of how she discovered she had chlamydia. She explained that after her first intimate encounter with DJ, she developed a rash on her body and experienced discomfort. It was at that point that she decided to get tested, which led to the diagnosis of an STD.
After the shocking revelation, TheTeaTalk’s official page promptly shared a particular segment of the podcast video.
The caption accompanying the post reads, “Uh gross?! DJ #diplo is allegedly out here taking V cards and giving fans STDs #sloanhooks interviewed a not-so-lucky fan on his #letsgetintoit podcast who details her horrific experience with the famous DJ!”
Upon seeing TheTeaTalk’s post, fans and followers swiftly expressed their opinions in the comment section. One individual remarked, ”I believe her, to be honest.”
Similarly, another commenter shared, “Diplo is well-known in the industry for allegedly targeting young Black women and exerting pressure on them to engage in activities for the sake of their career, often funded by him or for financial gain.”
This is not the first time DJ has faced controversy related to sexual health. Recently, TikTok influencer Shelly Auguste accused the DJ of engaging in unprotected intimacy with multiple girls, including herself, and alleged that he might have transmitted HIV/AIDS to many of them.
Auguste detailed her experiences with Diplo in a viral video of 4 minutes and 19 seconds. She mentioned that about 1 or 2 years ago, she came across the story of a girl who had come forward about being diagnosed with AIDS.
To her dismay, she also recognized that this was the same girl to whom DJ had sent an intimate video. Auguste then speculated that the girl’s AIDS diagnosis might have been a result of her intimate involvement with DJ.
Furthermore, in an October 2020 complaint submitted to the Los Angeles Police Department, a 25-year-old woman accused Diplo of surreptitiously recording sexually explicit videos of her without her consent.

The complaint also made the serious allegation that he intentionally transmitted a sexually transmitted infection to another person.
Back then, Diplo disagreed with the accusations and posted a lengthy message in his defense. However, now he hasn’t addressed the issue of him transmitting STDs to the women.

Erin Moriarty and Antony Starr have been a topic of dating speculation, fueled by a recent sighting that has set the celebrity gossip mill abuzz.
A fan claimed that the pair were spotted sharing lunch at Superba in Hollywood, stating, “erin moriarity and antony starr out to lunch sunday at superba in hollywood.”
In response, the celebrity gossip page Deuxmoi revealed that the duo are more than friends saying, “They hook up/ have hooked up.”

Moriarty and Starr’s dating rumors have been swirling for a few years. Since their joint appearance on the popular superhero series The Boys, fans have wondered whether their on-screen chemistry transcended into a real-life romance.
In 2021, Deuxmoi asserted that the co-stars deliberately kept their alleged relationship under wraps, perhaps to avoid the public eye.
Deuxmoi shared a series of emails that were sent by an anonymous source. The sender ambiguously referred to Starr as a key player on “the current biggest streaming show.”

One Instagram user undertook the role of decoder, indicating that the email was about Moriarty and Starr. Another Instagram user also revealed that the email’s subject, “diabolical gals,” referenced their shared work on The Boys.
Deuxmoi again shared the screenshot of the second email, reportedly from the same anonymous sender. This time, the sender confidently stated that the rumored couple indeed consisted of Moriarty and Starr.
However, the curtain of uncertainty still hangs, as both actors have yet to publicly address the rumors or provide any clarity on their relationship status.
Erin Moriarty’s dating history
Moriarty’s dating history, much like her guarded personal life, remains shrouded in mystery, largely due to her preference for maintaining privacy.
Casting a glance back at 2013, curiosity swirled among fans as rumors circulated regarding a possible romance with fellow American actor Jacob Artist.
The two first crossed paths in Indonesia while collaborating on the indie film After the Dark, also known as The Philosophers.
As their time on set progressed, so did their closeness, sparking speculations about their potential relationship status.
Adding fuel to the fire were Moriarty’s Instagram posts, where she shared numerous snapshots alongside Artist, further fueling romance rumors. However, the images gradually stopped coming after 2014, and it was believed they had parted ways.
In May 2017 that they were once again glimpsed together, suggesting an amicable relationship, yet the nature of their bond remained a mystery.
Moriarty was also rumored to be dating Pedro Pascal. The basis for the dating speculations rested partly on the shared photos they shared on their Instagram profiles, some dating back to 2014.
Among the posts was an image capturing Moriarty sitting next to Pascal in a living room, with a caption affectionately describing him as her “favorite person.” However, they didn’t publicly address the dating rumors.
Bob Menery and Girlfriend Summer Sheekey Back Together despite Break up Drama
“Summer is flying in. She’s back,” Bob Menery announced.
It seems Bob Menery is hung up on one girl only — his longtime on-and-off girlfriend, Summer Sheekey.
The social media personality has now revealed that he is getting back together with his ex-girlfriend, despite previously claiming that she had cheated on him and made his life miserable.
On Sunday night, August 13, 2023, Menery took to his Instagram stories to share a video from a bar where he was with his friends. At the bottom of the video, he wrote, “Good night, heading home. Summer is flying in. She cut a check. We forgave her. She’s back.”
After that story, he posted a couple of other random stories. And then, he shared a screenshot of a message he received from either a friend or a fan, whose name is Gabe Anderson.
The message was a reply to the Instagram story, where he revealed he and Sheekey were dating again. Anderson had written, “That girl cheated on you, manipulated you, and tried to get lawyers involved in your business. What are you doing bro?”

In reply, Menery wrote, “Damn u right.” Likewise, when he shared the screenshot of the message to his story, he added, “Gulp.” And he posted it on his feed as well, where he wrote, “Instagram story only. Forgive and forget? Or streets?”
The comment section of that post was turned off, and as Menery asked people to reply through Instagram stories, friends/fans did the same. Later, the Insta-famous personality shared two more screenshots of messages he received.
The first was from the username @pozpressedsend, who replied, “You have to be [explicit] kidding me. This is a joke, right Bob? You can’t possibly be serious. This person put you into psych rehab and detox. This is a bit. Good one, Bob!”
Menery then clarified this isn’t a joke or a bit, as said by the Instagrammer by writing, “Ain’t no bit. Raw life. But this is what I need to hear.” “You right. I ain’t smart in some areas,” he further added.

And to the above story, one Instagram user replied, “u just horny.” Menery texted back, “Yeeee I am.” And while sharing that screenshot, he added, “Agreed. I took a @RizzPharma too.” Rizz Pharma is a pharmaceutical company for men’s vitality and performance.
Before this, in May 2023, Menery revealed that he was in a legal battle with his ex-girlfriend. At the time, he often poured his frustration and talked about Sheekey’s adultery, despite his legal team advising him not to in fear of defamation.
Nonetheless, he often ignored the suggestions of his legal team and used to say that “truth is a defense.” Likewise, in March 2023, he announced that he would break down his two and a half years relationship with Sheekey.
While making the announcement via an Instagram post, he added that all his time with Sheekey was down the drain. “Don’t want to miss this one. I have a lot to get off my chest. Respect that,” Menery added in the caption.

At the time of that announcement, Menery and Sheekey had recently split for the 17th time. The two began dating in mid-2019, and both believed they were the one for each other. But as time passed, their relationship formed cracks.
Cheating allegations spread across the internet, which led to their break up. However, their break up wouldn’t last long, as they would eventually get back together. And fast forward to now, Menery has again revealed he has forgiven her, and they’re dating again.
