The inaugural NME free weekly magazine will launch tomorrow following the publication’s decision to drop its paid for model in favour of generating revenue through advertising – the first cover star has been revealed as Rihanna.
It seems like EVERY star on the planet is slowly but pushing to nab an appearance on stage with Taylor Swift on her “1989” tour.
Rihanna will not be joining Taylor on stage.
Asked if she would appear with Taylor if invited, Rihanna said: “I don’t think I would”.
“I don’t think our brands are the same: I don’t think they match, I don’t think our audiences are the same”. “Usually I ask them in my pre-show meet and greet if they want to come out onstage, then I’ll explain to them how the stage/elevator lift works and we just wing it”. You can never judge people.
Of the criticism of the music video for recent single “Bitch Better Have My Money”, she said: “I wanted people to feel like they’d got more than they’d expected”. Joking about the situation she says: “No matter what I post online, within three comments there’s somebody saying, “Where is ‘R8″?’ I could post anything”. I mean, maybe? But this doesn’t exactly prove that hypothesis. “You never know what someone is going through”.
It’s a well known fact that, at any given moment, Taylor Swift is recruiting at least another 68.3 famous people to her never-ending squad. (She’s the most followed person on Instagram with 46.5 million followers and she boasts 63.5 million followers on Twitter.) They later became friends and collaborators, and she continues to tweet about new artists she loves, most recently 19-year-old R&B singer Alessia Cara. “I think it really does”.
