• They say, “write what you know,” and who knows or likes to talk about Tyra Banks more than Tyra Banks?

Rih Rih’s a sad panda :'(

• Won’t somebody please take Rihanna out on a date? The songstress dished to Vogue in the upcoming November issue: “I would love to go on a date. You don’t think that? I’m a woman. A young woman, vibrant, and I love to have fun. No one asks. Trust me on that. I’m waiting for the man who’s ballsy enough to deal with me. And I have too many vaginas around me at this point.” The disgruntled Bajan continued, “Seriously, all I want is a guy to take me out and make me laugh for a good hour and take my ass back home. He doesn’t even have to come up. All I want is a conversation for an hour.” (Vogue UK)

• Riri’s really having it rough. She can’t get a date, and no one in the UK is interested in watching her reality design show, Styled to Rock. The program has enjoyed lackluster ratings so far, and might not be around for a second season. (Daily Mail)

• Green haired spitfire Sofi Green will host alongside Charlemagne and DJ Envy for MTV 2’s new show, Week in Jams. (MTV)
