Or should we really say new? Fans have known Rihanna to be dating a mystery man for months. There was new years in London and the secret trips to the Maldives and Japan. After yesterdays release of some steamy poolside pics of the two, his identity has finally been revealed: Hassan Jameel, a Saudi businessman and vice chairman of family business Abdul Latif Jameel.

    
Pics from tmz.

The two are vacationing on Ibiza where a photographer caught sight of them and in 1,2,3 the secret was out to the world. The couple were seen again today, picking up some coffee while looking cute and comfortable.

Yes you better give her flowers.

Finally learning who this man is of course super exciting but to be completely honest, I didn’t mind them being a secret. It was nice to think Rihanna had her private life where she could enjoy a romance without the entire world watching. Perhaps contradictory of me to write as I’m posting pictures of the two and playing part in that privacy disappearing, but such is life. I hope people will continue to let them live their lives and for us fans to respect and support her in her happiness. That’s what I take away from it anyway. Their smiles.

As for Hassan, here’s what we know: he’s previously been linked with Naomi Campbell, is from a super-duper-ultra rich family and seems totally smitten with Rih. Their ship name hasn’t been 100% agreed upon yet, but it stands between Rihsan and Hassana. I have no clue what he’s saying, but found a video of an interview or something:

Will end with an earlier pic of the two. It’s from the trip to Japan earlier this year, and even though it’s blurry as hell you can see that again, they’re smiling :)

For her final collection with Manolo Blahnik, a collaboration that started with ”Denim desserts” back in May 2016 and continued with ”Savage” a couple of months later, Rihanna has created 4 embellished heels that are truly the best we’ve gotten from Fenty’s stay in the luxury shoe biz (alongside the 9 to 5’s).

This third and final collection is called ”So stoned” (I see what you did there Rih) and $he made sure to wear one of the designs in the video for Wild Thoughts. The shoe is called ”Poison Ivy” and will cost about 1000x more than any mortal can afford (thanks to capitalism and his friend class differences). Looks amazing though.

It’s not always she’ll promote her work and/or designs but we should all consider us lucky this month of June because both video and shoes are getting the best of treatments. Yesterday Rihanna posted three gorgeous pictures, taken by her main photographer Dennis Leupold, of the shoes on her Instagram. Below are ”Bajan Princess”, ”Spice” and ”Poison Ivy” (in that order):

The final design is called ”Purple Chalice”, which we’ve only gotten a promo pic of so far:

All the shoes have Swarovski crystals on them, cost between $1,265 to $2,325 and will be available for purchase on July 6th over at manoloblahnik.com.

”Wild thoughts”, Rih’s song with DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller, is dropping tomorrow June 16th. The event of this summer is happening at 6am for New Yorkers, 12pm if you’re living in Sweden like me. I’ll be at work but make sure a break is happening at exactly 12 o’clock.

“I want everybody to know this: Be ready — because it’s gonna be one of those.”

Rihanna’s in Miami to shoot the music video for her and DJ Khaled’s collaboration on his upcoming album. Last time we got a music video from Miami out of her was Needed Me and this looks just as fire = I AM HAPPY.

Have you ever seen a cuter summer breeze? I don’t think so. The set looks amazing as well, loving the vibe and aesthetics.

Art makes the Citi Pretty <3

And a piece of art she is. <3 MUAH!
