Rihanna poses for Vogue in a Little Mermaid-esque cover shoot this month. The setting and a fashion statement both conjure up images of a Disney heroine.

The ocean. The tight, translucent gown, innocent and yet revealing. Most notably, the flaming red hair, accented with a few waves. The parallels are endless.

Okay, they pretty much end there. Still, who does mermaid fashion right? Can RiRi's sense of style overcome Ariel's half human/half fish advantage? Vote:

Chris Brown raised eyebrows - shocker there, we know - with a recent interview in which he said he was done apologizing for attacking Rihanna.

While the point was that he can't just keep saying sorry every minute of every day for life, it was the word "mishap" that the media seized upon.

He put himself in this position with his own actions, but this was somewhat unfair to Brown, who was trying to make a broader point about fame.

In the full interview, it's clear that Chris Brown was trying to express the frustrations and pitfalls of fame in the context of his new album F.A.M.E.

The album title stands for Forgiving All My Enemies and also Fans Are My Everything. The "mishap" he was referring to was no specific event.

Of people who turned their backs on him, or on any person after a negative event in their life, Brown actually sympathized, saying the following:

“You can’t blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don’t want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap.”

Nivea is making Rihanna its official "voice." More like body!

To celebrate the partnership and the brand's 100-year anniversary, the 23-year-old singer posed for a stunning stripped-down topless photo.

"We are excited to have Rihanna supporting us and helping build a new generation of fans," the beauty product company said a statement.

Is she the only girl in the world who could pull this off?

Rihanna first debuts with Nivea in May, coinciding with the centennial anniversary and her "Loud" tour. She'll also lead an interactive social media campaign.

Unlike the Rihanna photo that caused a stir last week, she looks happy. And unlike previous topless pics that have surfaced, this one isn't of the sexting nature.

She looks awesome, don't you think?

Last week, a graphic photo of a battered Rihanna leaked.

That image showed, for the first time, the gruesome extent of the damage caused by then-boyfriend Chris Brown the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

Now, a new photo has surfaced that reportedly shows a lip injury Chris suffered the night he beat Rihanna up. The damage is minor, but it's still there.

MediaTakeOut, which broke the story, says the pic was taken after the fight, during which he claimed Rihanna hit him first. Follow the jump to see:

You really gotta love Twitter. Celebrity feuds begin suddenly over nothing and spiral out of control for all to enjoy so efficiently in this high-tech day and age.

Today's star-studded social media beef: Ciara and Rihanna!

Dining Out, Solo

On Joan Rivers’ Fashion Police last night, the host was discussing with Ciara some absurd outfit Rihanna had worn (take your pick). That's when Ciara said:

IT'S SO ON: When diva singers attack with Blackberrys!

"I ran into her recently at a party and she wasn’t the nicest, and it’s crazy because I’ve always respected what she’s done with fashion and I’ve ran into her before, but this time it just wasn’t the most pleasant run-in, so ..."

That thought was completed by Rivers: "…a bitch. Next!"

No sooner had the show aired, Rihanna took to her Twitter page, fuming about the remarks, writing: "My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u? #howrudeofme."

It only got better from there ...

Earlier this week, a judge allowed Chris Brown to once again have contact with former girlfriend Rihanna, tossing the restraining order against him.

With the passage of time, and Brown doing an exemplary job with his probation, one practically forgets that he beat his one-time lady love senseless.

Until today, when MediaTakeOut posted uncensored photos of Rihanna's battered face after the attack - pictures even more graphic than you think.

Follow the jump to see one of the images. Warning: It's upsetting ...

Rihanna and Ryan Phillippe GOT IT ON and not for the first time, according to a totally reliable unnamed source quoted by Us Weekly this week.

While the singer appeared to blow off Phillippe at a Gucci/Roc Nation brunch in L.A. Feb. 12, an insider now says it was actually the opposite.

The couple had a sleepover that very night! "She thinks he's hot," says the source. "They totally had sex. And it wasn't even the first time!"

"They initially hooked up when things were strained with [her ex] Matt Kemp back in early December," says a Rihanna source, adding that they "played it cool."

"There was no PDA," says an attendee of the Los Angeles party. "They hung out a bit, but were discreet. It is still very casual." Sums up another source:

"Clearly they're keeping it on the downlow!"

Pretty typical for a non-relationship. With Chris Brown's restraining order lifted, she may want to keep her options open too. You really never know.

Two years after making contact with her so severely that she lost consciousness and he nearly landed in jail, Chris Brown is free to contact Rihanna again.

A judge just lifted the restraining order prohibiting Brown from going near Rihanna, so long as he does not harass, annoy, or molest his former girlfriend.

Rihanna Wax Figure

Brown appeared in court in L.A., where a judge replaced Rihanna's restraining order with a less-severe Level One order, stipulating the terms above.

THE OLD DAYS: This VMA hotness seems like years ago.

Rihanna was not in court, but her attorney Donald Etra was, telling the judge that his client has no objection to the new order and new arrangement.

It's unclear if the two actually plan on having contact, or if this was just a formality - Brown's complied with probation, so the order should be lifted.

If nothing else, award shows could be a little less awkward now.

Rihanna celebrated her 23rd birthday yesterday.

For such a young age, the Barbados native has amassed a huge number of hit songs. She's also drastically altered her image in the last couple of years, shedding her innocent appeal in favor of a harder, edgier, hyper-sexual persona.

It's as if the message is to say, in short, you can't keep this girl down, Chris Brown, and you ain't gettin' any of this ever again. Punk. Whatever you think of the style chameleon personally, her musical success is undeniable.

Here's the birthday girl performing live at the NBA All-Star game last night. Check out her collaboration with Kanye and Drake above and wish her a happy b-day!

Ryan Phillippe and Amanda Seyfried, who have been a couple for a few months now, were spotted having an intense conversation the week before last.

This sparked rumors that the two are on the rocks, if not over for good, because days later, Phillippe was already on the prowl, trying to pick up Rihanna.

"He said something to the effect of, 'What are you doing tonight?' She said 'sleep,'" a source said. "She was polite, but she was genuinely not interested."

Red-Haired RiRi

Fear not, Phillippe fans, because Reese Witherspoon's ex had more luck later that night, when he was seen leaving a house party with a pretty brunette.

As for his relationship with Amanda Seyfried?

"It's casual. They'e friends who hang out romantically from time to time and that's it," says a pal. "At one point, there was a chance it would develop into something more serious, but it never did. There's no commitment."

Just the way he likes it, we're guessing.

I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.

Rihanna [on rumors that she dated Jay-Z]

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
