9/06/2013 2:23 PM ET | Filed under: Rihanna Drugs Legal Matters R.I.P. Beyonce You may not know the name Norman Oosterbroek, but you def know some of the people he’s protected over the years! Known as the ‘Dutch Giant’, the 6′ 5″ bodyguard to the stars has protected Rihanna , Beyonce , Jay Z , even Nelson Mandela! But how safe were they really? According to Miami authorities, a neighbor of Oosterbroek’s looked out her window to see the 47-year-old, apparently under the influence of drugs, naked at her window! Carrying a “white, powdery substance” with one hand, Oosterbroek allegedly broke in and began beating the woman with the other until police arrived. Miami-Dade police were forced to shoot the raging man with tasers. Sadly, the electric shock meant to stun turned out to be too much for Oosterbroek. He died moments later at the hospital. Police are defending their actions in the situation. Spokeswoman Nancy Perez says: “He was highly violent, uncontrollable and obviously wasnt stable.” A full autopsy is expected soon, but initial reports say Oosterbroek’s condition was consistent with cocaine use. So sad what drugs can do to even the strongest of us.
Friday, Sept. 6, 2013 Rihanna Goes “Ghetto Goth” With Crazy, Edgy Outfit Love It or Leave It? (PHOTO) By Dan Clarendon Courtesy WetPaint.com In case you didn’t hear, Rihanna just pioneered a new fashion genre: ghetto goth. At least, that’s what she dubbed the outfit she’s wearing in an Instagram photo posted today, September 6. The snapshot, which looks like it was taken in the back of a swanky SUV, shows RiRi in a black-and-silver ensemble a black translucent long-sleeved shirt (over a black camisole), black sneakers, a black cap, black sunglasses, and black shorts (which show off her shapely gams). All that is accessorized with silver: an anklet, necklace, and bracelet, plus a silver ring on almost every finger. Blinged out! Makeup-wise, her lips are magenta and her long nails are a metallic midnight green. In her next post, a black-and-white snapshot of the same outfit, Ri writes that she is on her way to a shoot with Inez and Vinoodh i.e. Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the fashion photographers who just directed Lady Gaga’s awesomely weird “Applause” music video . We’re excited to see what that collaboration will produce. But in the meantime, let us know your thoughts: Do you like her new hashtag-inspiring look? Or is it just not your taste?
Competition: Win the chance to be styled by Rihanna at her exclusive River Island launch event
Photo: Splash News Rihanna was spotted out last night in New York in a fairly simple outfit, especially by Rihanna standards: she had on a sheer white leotard, jean shorts (#jorts), some black and white Jordans . She accessorized with a Komakino ” Teenage Fantasy ” baseball hat, a $970 MCM palm tree print backpack, some gold bracelets and necklaces. Oh, yeah, and the BIGGEST gold hoops that have ever existed in the history of the world. (Probably.) She was out a few days ago in what seemed like big hoops , but those were child’s play compared to these bad boys. These earrings practically touch her shoulders. A baby’s head could definitely fit through them. A petite adult’s thigh could fit through them. They could be used to cut the dough for an extremely large cookie, or a small pizza. Rihanna, of course, seems totally unfazed by them: it’s just a regular Wednesday to go out to dinner in 8-inch diameter earrings for Ri. NBD. Since Rihanna has been slowly increasing her hoop size during her NYC trip, do you think the next time we see her she’ll have ones that go past her shoulders? Will she attend her pal/costume designer Adam Selman ‘s first Fashion Week show tonight wearing them? We’ll keep an eye out (they’re hard to miss) for any more huge hoop appearances and keep you in the know.
