Beyoncé is the new face of H&M’s summer campaign!

Beyonce‘s new album may be M.I.A, but the singing superstar is ensuring she remains a hot topic this Summer. For, after ample speculation, not only has her H&M campaign been confirmed, the all-out promo push is set to bring with it new music too.

WWD report that the 31-year-old has been tapped to front the high-street chain’s Summer line and will appear in television commercials, print ads and billboards in support of the collection (which she also had a hand in designing).

The campaign’s accompanying commercial was helmed by ‘Telephone’ director Jonas Åkerlund and features a new Beyoncé track, ‘Standing on the Sun’. “It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island. It felt more like making a video than a commercial,” Beyonce commented.

Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin snapped the still ads in Nassau, Bahamas. The print and outdoor spots read, “Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in H&M,”paying homage to the title of her upcoming sell-out world tour.

The collection will available in stores and online starting in May

Rihanna in new ELLE magazine shoot: I Will Have A Child !

Plans: Rihanna says she would love a month off to have a baby and replace touring with something else

Their reconciliation rocked the world of show-business – dividing critics and fans – but Rihanna has revealed her relationship with Chris Brown could go all the way, including having children together.

In a sultry shoot for ELLE UK Diamonds temptress Rihanna has revealed plans to start a family with Brown, why she feels compelled to share so much of her life through social media and her hopes for her future.

Divulging the secrets in her life is starting to become important to Rihanna, who was discovered in 2005 and has worked ever since, and the 25-year-old singer has explained this is why she shares so much of her personal life on Instagram.

Showing off her incredible figure and fierce attitude the Man Down singer wears kitten ears and a dark mask in the shoot by Mariano Vivacano while wearing designs by fashion houses Maison Martin Margiela, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy.

Speaking frankly about her relationship with Brown, who assaulted her before the 2009 Grammy Awards, Rihanna said: ‘Stay [her new single] is a story about having love that close and wanting it to last forever. You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he [Chris Brown] is the one I have that kind of relationship with.’

And on the subject of children the Barbadian beauty said: ‘I will probably have a kid. And I’m praying I can go on vacation for a good month. And I’ll have set some things up so I don’t have to tour for the rest of my life, even though I love touring. I want health and happiness in five years. I want to be healthy and happy.’

Despite critics branding Rihanna a bad influence on women of her generation for taking Brown back the singer remains unapologetic, explaining: ‘Now that we’re adults we can do this right. We got a fresh start and I’m thankful for that. Right now that’s just what we want, a great friendship that’s unbreakable.’

And the social media savvy Rihanna is tired of lying to her fans about her life, explaining she usues Instagram to make it clear the type of person she is.

‘Well I Instagram everything about my life, whether it’s smoking pot, in a strip club, reading a Bible verse – how crazy, I know! – or hanging out with my best friend, who happens to be Chris.

‘Everybody wanted to know what was happening in my life. Is she a drug addict? No. Is she an alcoholic? No. Is she a victim? No. That’s when I got the gun [tattoo]. It was a symbol of strength. I’ll never be a victim.’

‘That’s why I’m posting pictures of myself smoking pot, to tell the truth about myself. I’ve got so much to think about, why bring all this extra s*** by being dishonest?’

But her open attitude doesn’t swing with everyone.

‘I’m not afraid of any person in this world but my mother. I’m terrified of her!

‘She called me two days ago and reeled me in about two naked pictures Melissa [her best friend] put up on Instagram – a sneak-peek from a photo book she’s making about me. My mom, she went crazy on me.

‘I was like embarrassed. I felt like I got my ass whupped in front of my class in school! She said, “This was like a private moment and you’re just parading this around.” She humbled the f*** out of me.’

Although she appears on the pages of Elle UK in a number of slick designer outfits Rihanna is clearly a fan of the high street, designing a clothing range with River Island.

‘High-street shops pay more attention to the kids on the street than to the runways, so in a way I like to mix both. I love a high-end bag or jacket with a simple dress.

‘I just thought, I’m going to make something for everybody – every personality, every body type.’

Rihanna and Chris Brown: Birthday, Bikini and Blunts in Hawaii!

Rihanna and Chris Brown celebrated her 25th birthday yesterday with a romantic trip to Hawaii, where they were seen on the beach – with blunts, of course.

The duo was photographed holding hands during a stroll by the ocean, then snuggling by the surf … and holding what would appear to be a blunt or two.

The “Stay” songstress donned pink bikini bottoms, concealed only slightly by a mesh cover-up skirt, plus a black tank-top covering up her bikini top.

In an Instagram photo she shared, Rih sits on Chris’ lap in a bikini top and skirt, grinning mischievously in sunglasses and giant hoop earrings.

“#Pour it up pour it up! #birthdaybehavior,” she captioned the pic.

Certainly seems like Rihanna and Chris Brown had a good day.
