Rihanna makes a Swift dismissal

RIHANNA has said she doesn’t ever see herself performing with TAYLOR SWIFT, because they just “don’t match”.

The rebellious Bitch Better Have My Money singer appears smoking on the cover of the first free edition of the NME, and told the magazine she thinks of Swift as a role model, while she herself is not one.

Asked if she would appear with Swift if invited, Rihanna said: “I don’t think I would. I just don’t think it makes sense.

“I don’t think our brands are the same: I don’t think they match, I don’t think our audiences are the same. In my mind she’s a role model, I’m not.”

  • LISA RILEY has backed CHERYL FERNANDEZ-VERSINI’s call for body-shaming to be made illegal.

X Factor judge Cheryl faced criticism of her slimmer appearance from fans when the show’s auditions were filmed in July.

Former Emmerdale actress Riley has now spoken out and agreed that body-shaming is “completely and utterly wrong”.

“I completely agree with Cheryl. Body shaming is completely and utterly wrong. I want to be judged because I am a good actress or a good presenter — that is all,” she told The Mirror.

  • The KARDASHIAN-JENNER clan was out in force to support KANYE WEST at his latest fashion show in New York, with youngest sibling KYLIE JENNER even stepping out on the catwalk.

Wife KIM KARDASHIAN WEST took daughter North to the show, where she was joined by sisters Khloe, Kourtney and Kendall in the audience.

Despite the fact the Yeezy Season 2 show was announced at the last minute, it attracted a star-studded front row which also included Vogue supremo ANNA WINTOUR, singer LORDE and rapper DRAKE.

Kim, who wore a figure-hugging vest and leggings from the collection with a matching overshirt, carried her two-year-old daughter into the event, with North wearing neutrals to co-ordinate with her mum.

  • KATIE PRICE’s singing career was a flash in the pan, but she’ll be trying harder with her wicked new panto role.

Price will be treading the boards for the first time as the Wicked Fairy in Sleeping Beauty at the New Victoria Theatre in Woking.

The mother-of-five said: “I’m not sure who’s more excited about my role in panto, me or the kids!

“They’re going to enjoy it so much seeing me up on stage, although they might find it strange that I’m being so evil.”

  • Classic detective series Hart To Hart is to be rebooted – but with the husband-and-wife detective team re-imagined as a gay couple.

In the original, which ran from 1979 to 1984, Jonathan and Jennifer Hart were played by ROBERT WAGNER and STEFANIE POWERS. They were a glamorous, wealthy couple who regularly stumbled upon murders.

But now, lawyer Jonathan Hart is set to investigate crimes with male partner Dan Hartman, an “investigator”, according to Deadline. They will attempt to balance their crime-solving activities with trying to live a happy home life together.

It has not yet been revealed who will play Jonathan and Dan, or whether there will be a role for Max – the couple’s loyal butler, cook and chauffeur, who was played by the late Lionel Stander in the original series.
