Rihanna has revealed that she is going to spending Valentine's Day in the studio with Pharrell. She told Essence, “I’m going to be in the studio. I’m so excited actually. I can’t say who I’m working with, but it’s somebody I’ve been wanting to work with him for a long time.” Feeling generous, she went on to reveal the collaborator in question. “Okay, I’ll tell you. It’s Pharrell.”
In other news, the singer's Savage x Fenty lingerie site has been accused of deceptive marketing. According to the New York Post, consumer watchdog group TruthinAdvertising.org said that the line has “engaged in deceptive marketing and illegal business practices” that includes luring women into pricey $49.95-a-month memberships without their knowledge.
In complaints to the Federal Trade Commission and Santa Cruz, California, District Attorney’s office, Tina.org has claimed that the underwear company Rihanna founded in 2017 entices shoppers with discounted items, but the $25 price is only available to subscribers. The real price is $81 —a fact that is only made clear “in a barely-legible, tiny, white font,” and which disappears from online ads after a few seconds.
Rihanna, nor her e-commerce partner Techstyle have addressed the accusations.
