The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Rihanna Sounds Off on “N**gab*tch”-gate, Rob Kardashian to Release Footwear Line, and Another AbFab Teaser Clip

Rihanna has some choice words for Eva Hoeke, Editor-in-Chief of Dutch magazine Jackie, who recently ran a feature about the singer calling her the “ultimate niggabitch” with a “ghetto butt.” The songstress took to Twitter, lambasting the editrix and her foul publication, saying “@evajackie I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human rights! I find you disrespectful, and rather desperate!! You ran out of legit, civilized information to print! There are 1000’s of Dutch girls who would love to be recognized for their contributions to your country, you could have given them an article. Instead, u paid to print one degrading an entire race! That’s your contribution to this world! To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past! You put two words together with the intent of abasement, that made no sense…”NIGGA BITCH”?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you…FUCK YOU!!!” Talk d tings dem, Riri!

• Some might proclaim couture is dead, but this news doesn’t seem to have reached Giambattista Valli, France’s newest authorized couturier.

•  Rob Kardashian hasn’t been contributing to the Kardashian Kash Kow nearly enough, but that’s about to change. The littlest ‘Dash is set to release a line of… dress socks. Random as it may seem, the ever-adorable Rob makes it sound so wonderful: “I feel like everybody likes a dress sock. No one wants to see a boring tube sock. I am very passionate about it and I think guys and girls agree with me. Plus you can give your dress socks to your girlfriend when she sleeps over.” You know what, Rob? Yeah. I like a good dress sock. I’m on board! (StyleCaster)
