• Nail polish powerhouse OPI has tapped Mariah Carey for two lacquer collaborations! The singer’s first 8 shade range is due out in January, while the second will release later in 2013. Carey is the perfect celeb to rep a polish collection. Can you imagine the delightfully bright and girly shades she’ll serve? Maybe we’ll get a sparkly topcoat with butterfly shaped glitter?

Rihanna better start behaving herself now that she’s inked a three-year deal to be “the face” of her home country. The Barbados government has dubbed Riri an official ambassador of the island, in hopes that her international popularity might boost tourism. Ms. Fenty’s badgyal antics have recently caused Nivea to sever ties with the pop singer. Perhaps she should tread lightly now that she’s repping the interests of Barbados. A tourism campaign featuring Rihanna is supposed to launch in September. (Vogue UK)

• In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of Riri’s interview with Oprah. And yes, as she is wont to do, Ms. Winfrey did make our Robyn cry. Can’t wait to see the whole interview! (OWN Youtube)
