Weekend Review — Rihanna's New Ink, Alexa Chung's Hangover Cure, Grimes Likes Australian Rap, Terry Shoots Dree

Plus Kanye and Jay-Z's new track, Britney's new hair and Opening Ceremony's new video.
Dree Hemingway demonstrates her flexibility for Terry Richardson

This weekend, Rihanna did two things. One of them was calling Drake an asshole on live TV at the VMAs (not confirmed) and the other was getting a huge tattoo on her chest (confirmed). After winning Video of the Year at the awards on Thursday (for 'We Found Love'), she went to London and had an Egyptian goddess inked on her ribcage. As she is one to do, Rihanna posted a photo of it on Instagram — the caption reads "Goddess Isis - Complete Woman - Model for future generations - #GRANGRANDOLLY - always in and on my heart #1love" — followed by a photo of her late grandmother to whom the tattoo is dedicated.

In other music news, Cruel Summer is scheduled for release in exactly one week and this weekend Kanye released 'Clique', a track with Jay-Z and Big Sean about how you can't fuck with their clique.

Alexa Chung has invented a hangover cure consisting purely of a fresh can of coke and some sort of bread-based foodstuff from Panerra. With her Instagram on private since those 'Thinspo' accusations back in April, it's nice to hear from her via Twitter.

If you aren't up-to-date on Breaking Bad, or haven't even seen it (where have you been) and plan on doing so (you should), be warned there are major spoilers in this incredible fan-made video. Made by some gaming nerds who go by the name UltraBrawl, the eight-minute video spans the entire five seasons up to and including last week's mid-season finale. Seeing Walter White transform from dying school teacher to maniacal druglord in the space of just a few minutes is a succinct reminder as to why show creator Vince Gilligan is a bit of a genius. The guys who made this video aren't too shabby either.

The final eight episodes of the series will air from next July, so we recommend that you bookmark this recap now and watch it again next year to get your head all caught up.

Britney Spears, meanwhile, debuted a striking new look on the set of The X Factor — hair extensions in a vibrant Kingfisher Blue. How much do you just want to give her a hug (and hand her a hairbrush)?

One of our absolute favourites, Grimes, has been tweeting about Australian rap. Namely, some very decent Australian rap put forth by Heaps Decent — an organisation co-founded by Nina Las Vegas, Andrew Levins and Diplo that travels around the country teaching Indigeneous kids how to make music. It's easy to cringe hearing the words "Aussie hip hop" but these guys aren't bad at all.

The Opening Ceremony book was released last week and, to celebrate, the store has produced a video featuring a cast of ten-year-olds. The very well-dressed children (they wear Opening Ceremony by A for Apple) assume the roles of store founders and key collaborators  and tell the story of the boutique's history — from Carol and Humberto meeting in college to collaborations with fashionable film people Chloë Sevigny and Spike Jonze. In case it isn't already obvious, it's pretty cute.

If spending $60 on a beautiful keepsake book just isn't your thing and you'd much rather drop a cool $20 million, will soon be able to get your mits on some rare Andy Warhols to hang on the walls of your sitting room or home-office. Talk about keepsake! The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts is selling its collection of the artist's works, which includes a silkscreen of Marlon Brando straddling a motorbike. Auctions will commence at Christie's this November.

And finally, former ballet dancer and now model Dree Hemingway has been given the Terry treatment.
