Filmmaker Peter Berg (Bloodline, Lone survivor) is working on a documentary about Rihanna, set to be released on his production company Film45.

This isn’t the first time the two work together. Berg also directed Rihanna in her first feature role as officer Cora ”Weps” Raikes in the 2012 action movie Battleship. ”The idea to cast Rihanna came from me. I’m a fan of Rihanna, like every man.”, he then said.

Battleship

Berg is influenced by the Bob Dylan documentary ”Don’t look back” for the project and says that it will be “much more a character study than a music film”. News of the documentary first broke in 2015, with Berg saying he likes the idea of examining “a young artist at the top of her professional field”.

I thought a Blunt was a small cigar for Spanish people to smoke when playing cards or dominos.

We are yet to receive a release date but with Berg uploading the picture below to Instagram today, we think the ”coming soon” might actually mean it’s coming soon.

This girl RiRi she's not bad. See I'm smiling I ain't mad.

The song I’m most excited to hear at the Anti world tour is Love on the brain. Vocals, storytelling, production, movements, everything moves me down to my deepest core and so far I’ve only seen it on video. Imagining standing against the iron fence after hours and hours of waiting and a full show behind you, knowing this emotional tornado is about to hit… I can get ecstatic for less, let’s just say that.

My only concern is I’ll be so desperate to pee at this hour I won’t be able to enjoy it. But let’s pretend my bladder have grown to a bigger size than peanut level by then, in which case I’m gonna be 100% like Rihanna’s assistent and friend Jennifer Rosales during the performance.

When @jennnrosales song come on ya hear me…. ????? AWT #AuburnHills

It was only a few days ago we posted about Rihanna’s absence from the comment section on Instagram and expressed our concern with it being long term. In true ANTI fashion she has returned to the scene with the most heartwarming exchange of friendship magic in a long time. God bless Melissa Forde for getting emotional on her and God bless social media for allowing us to be part of it!

Also, am I the only one who thinks it’s effed up that barely no one talks of this relationship? Jay Z can’t do an interview without being asked about Beyoncé but with Mel and Rih, who have been by each other’s side in the public eye ever since Rihanna’s break through, it’s like it’s nothing special. I guess it’s not interesting if the relationship isn’t a romantic one…

The only time I remember a mention of their relationship is from the Miranda July interview (yes, that same one brought up a billion times in this blog already) in which the driver taking July to the interview says ”Her and Melissa, I think they are the best celebrity friends. I always say that.”. Miranda then proudly demonstrates that she knows Melissa’s last name, like M hasn’t been the closest companion to one of the biggest stars on our planet for over a decade?

Her name should be with you at all times, ok?! She’s the number one protector of our badgal, the one we can be sure to always have her back, keep her grounded and make her laugh. All hail Mel.

I’m sitting here SOBBING. BET’s Black girls rock! aired last night and I just watched Rihanna’s acceptance speech for her Rock star award. It’s the most heartfelt and natural speech I’ve ever seen her give. And when praising her speech, the context in which it is being delivered can’t be ignored. What a difference an including space can make. She’s always sassy, sharp and genuine but too many times have I seen that not being received as it should by those listening (or not listening). Here, she’s celebrated and respected in a way that leaves me all fuzzy inside.

Like when she says ”and you know, role model is not the title they like to give me, you know” and the audience starts screaming and clapping for her… Like ok, I’m crying again. It’s so obvious the they is not present in this room. That the they is society, the industry, Lena Dunham or whatever white privilege is speaking on behalf of their own agenda. To not have they present or in a minority means to be recognized. That’s what a community does, it sees and validates you, and I just feel like she should have been validated a thousand times before instead of being asked the same tiring questions on why she doesn’t take responsibility with setting an example for her young fans. Because honestly, she always has.

But racism and classism still affects public as well as private spaces and that is of course beyond depressing. So remember to keep your inclusiveness close and whenever you feel like the walls are closing in on you – find a separatist room that will tear them down and surround you with the acceptance you deserve. It does miracles. It allows you to be yourself and that is half the battle.

Bonus: Hillary Rodham Clinton getting the opposite reception from the audience, including Rihanna (who’s sitting front row with her assistent Jennifer).

There’s an AWT Special moments from Philly on the way but let’s break this backstage video shot by 247paps.tv down a little first. Because 1) look at her and 2) KILL ME BECAUSE THIS DOWN TO EARTH LITTLE BABY ANGEL IS THE MOST HUMBLE MEGA STAR ON THE PLANET.

Here we go, from the beginning:

1.

0:03: Talking to Nyla (the young fan in the video) about her new sibling. Rihanna knows that Nyla was pretty disappointed after her mom’s ultra sound didn’t show any penis attached to the fetus. How Rih knows this? Thanks to Nyla’s aunt (who Rihanna follows) sharing these videos on Instagram:

 

When having a sibling goes wrong ????????? #Nylalynn video 2

She having a complete melt down. Going on hour #3. ?????????? #Nylalynn video 4

Well, the baby arrived and of course Nyla did a 180 and is currently as proud as can be.

 

Now she be sweating her lol #nylalynn #nialei ??

Trust Rihanna to not only acknowledge Nyla’s struggle but to keep up with what’s happened post delivery as well. At the meeting after the show in Philadelphia, she asks her:

”You want she now?! Or I can get she? Can I keep her?”

BECAUSE SHE INTERACTS WITH HER FANBASE LIKE THAT. SHE KNOWS US.

”I like sis! It make me feel as, as I’m one of ya’ll.”

3.

1:47: On why we haven’t been getting any rihplies lately.

”I reply sometimes! You all just want me to clap back.”

– We do want you to clap back!

”No. Too many clap backers…”

– But you taught ‘em.

”Now it’s like, now I can’t take it. I hate to see somebody… It’s just not right.”

– You need something new.

”No I just, not like that, I just… I don’t even have time to read that shit furthermore reply. You know I hate when people let people know they saw that shit. You aint see that? You got time to see that? No!”

Here’s to hoping she’ll change her mind though, ‘cause we all love her replies, don’t we?
