6 Things Chris Brown Should've Gotten Rihanna for V-Day

Even a blind man could see the love that still exists between exes Chris Brown and Rihanna. Between the subliminal love e-notes and talks of the two locked away solo behind Grammy rehearsal doors, any thing is possible with these two. Any truth to these tales? How does current girlfriend Karrueche feel about the gossip? Who knows. But with the national day of love behind us, we can't help but wonder just what CB would've gotten his former boo if he was, indeed, trying to get back in her good graces.

What could a multi-million dollar pop icon possibly need, you ask? Well, it's the simple things that matter, right? With that said, here's a few intimate gifts we think the R&B crooner should have had in mind...

2012 Mercedes Benz CLS63
Simple? Maybe not, but so necessary! (Word to Hov!) This automobile could, by far, be the hottest on the market. CB would score major points for copping a car for his ex, and we're sure she'd be riding around and gettin' it... With or without Breezy.
iPad 3
Celebs are famous for getting what they desire before the masses, and there's no exception with the highly anticipated iPad 3. Breezy, for sure, could snag this Apple item for Rihanna pre-release and have her showing off why she's one of the baddest in the game.
Rih Rih-Inspired Perfume
As eerie as it may sound, you never forget your first love's scent. Breezy could easily cook up a fragrance (with the help of some manufacturers, of course) that reminds him of the pop star. Think she'd go for it? She just might. With two perfumes already on the market, having a personal third may be kind of awesome.

Personal Scrapbook/Master Mix of Love Songs
Chrianna hasn't had many great times in recent years, but CB can take his girl back to the good ol' days with a few intimate pictures and favorite love songs. C'mon, you know we all have that set of songs that reminds us of that relationship. Maybe, just maybe, it could've been the perfect V-Day gift for these two.

Jewelry
Rihanna loves her Rolex watches and rings. Chris Brown should've sprinkled some bling on her, and she'd be smiling from ear-to-ear. No Beyoncé.

Sex
We all know the Bajan princess is a bad gyal who loves to be, well, a bit vulgar and overtly sexual. She's been visually stressed in recent months following her tour, but a little coitus should get her relaxed and energized, right? CB, can you go downtown with a girl like Rih?

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
