She’s currently negotiating a $25 million deal with Samsung to sponsor her album promo and tour, deals with Dior, Puma, her own sock line Murder Rih Wrote, is launching a hair, makeup and styling agency and… a weed line?

According to 18karatreggae, Rih will launch MaRihanna and sell the strains dubbed as Karibbean Kush, Haitian Haze and Jamaican High Grade.

“MaRihanna by Rihanna is truly the first mainstream cannabis brand in the world and proud to be a pioneer,” they claim Rihanna said in a statement. “MaRihanna is blazing a trail for the industry.”

■ Joss Stone poses ******* for PETA to draw attention to the killings of crocodiles for fashion.

“Although I’m not as familiar with crocodiles as I am with dogs and horses, I know that all animals are capable of suffering,” Stone says. “I hope when people see footage of what happens to crocodiles and alligators killed for their skin to be turned into handbags, they’ll join me in leaving wildlife out of their wardrobes.”


Did we leave anything out?
