The new issue of Vogue has a great quote on Rihanna...
There are very few women who can dye their hair Bozo the Clown red and still look so cool, so beautiful.Amen. I love Rihanna. Her new record, Loud, is not her finest (that's a split between Good Girl and Rated R), but I love how she plays the pop star game with a kind of do-what-I-want elan.
The title of this post comes from Emerald City Sequence in The Wiz. I'd love to hear Rihanna remake this tune since color - or lack of it - is such a driving force in her music and visuals. If you don't know this song, it's discotastic. Hear it now.
