    This week, Wiz Khalifa showed us all a new side of himself ("Trap Wiz") with his mixtape 28 Grams. Taking cues from Southern hip-hop, especially that of Atlanta, he gathered together a roster of trap producers like Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, Sonny Digital and members of 808 Mafia to flesh out his new persona. Though the music on 28 Grams bears little in common with Rihanna's, Wiz has now said that the singer was another major influence on his tape.

    Rihanna has been with Def Jam since 2005, a deal she signed when Jay Z was still behind the label. In fact, as the story goes, Hov apparently wouldn't let Rihanna leave the room before putting some ink on the contract. The pairing was a massive success, with RiRi releasing all seven of her studio albums on the label, but now her contract is up, and it looks like she's going back to Jay.

    The other week we got a look at Rihanna's photo shoot with Vogue Brazil and her double cover of their magazine. The magazine's inside spread, perhaps unsurprisingly, contained several photos of Rih Rih in topless mode (which seems to be her natural state). Most of the time, when Rih Rih goes topless, she's still covering up her nipples/breasts in some way. For her latest magazine cover, though, Rihanna bares it all. Nipple ring included.

    Rihanna is doing pretty well for herself, so it comes as a shock that the singer says she had hit a point where she was "effectively bankrupt" back in 2009.  RiRi is suing her former accountant, who she claims gave her some pretty suspect financial advice that year. Apparently, the adviser told her to go ahead and buy a 7-7.5 million dollar home, when she was not in the market for that type of purchase.
