While pop princess Rihanna is kicking back with Oprah in her home town of Barbados, WENN is reporting that Rihanna has been kicked to the curb by beauty brand Nivea after the company realized that her reckless ways were a tarnish to the brand.


For those who have trouble reading between the lines, Nivea offers a pretty obvious statement on how African-American men should present themselves.

In a recent ad campaign aimed at getting men to step their grooming game up — Nivea asks men to “Look Like You Give A Damn.” As seen above, Nivea targets African-Americans features and asks men to “re-civilize yourself”. (Apparently the bread and afro are barbaric?)

In addition to the already condescending “look like you give a damn” pitch, the ad also brings in an image of a well-groomed Black man holding what is supposed to be his own head with an Afro and a beard – apparently his “un-civilized” self. O_o

IF this ad doesn’t scream discrimination – I’m not sure what does. Check out Nivea’s response to their “suggestive” marketing after the break:

(more…) reports that Nivea was arrested last night in Atlanta for DUI. The singer, who is also the ex-wife of The-Dream, and Lil Wayne’s baby mama, crashed her cream BMW X6 into a tree around 1 am last night – after attending the wedding of Antonia “Toya” Carter – near Marietta St. and Bolton Rd.

Nivea Hamilton Nash, as her name appeared on her license, also had a small baby in the car with her who has been reported unharmed.

When stopped by an investigating officer, Nivea was said to have gotten very belligerent with the cop – even telling her ..”B*tch I Could Buy Your Job Hoe!”

Shortly after, Nivea was taken to Fulton County correctional facility…SMH.

Stay Tuned….

As of yesterday, Antonia “Toya” Carter is officially a married woman. She and her fiance’ Mickey “Memphitz” Wright wed Saturday night in a private ceremony in Atlanta in front of several of their celebrity friends and family. Even Wayne’s Exes made an appearance including her good friend Lauren London and Nivea.
