Rihanna was basically naked at the CFDA Awards

Rihanna shone bright like a diamond Swarovski crystals at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards Monday night.

The singer was decked out in a custom dress, designed by Rihanna’s costume designer Adam Selman, that was made out of mesh and 216,000 pieces of twinkling cut glass. Here’s the thing about crystals and mesh, as Britney and Cher are well aware: They give the appearance of being totally naked…save for some kind of nude-colored thong, in Rihanna’s case at least.

The CFDA Awards are an annual event that “recognizes the outstanding contributions made to American fashion by individuals from all areas of the industry and related arts, with awards being given for design excellence.” Rihanna was named 2014’s Fashion Icon.

'Styled to Rock' designer on Miley Cyrus' mom: 'I just pretty much sketched out her daughter as a whore'

Not exhausted from Miley overexposure yet? Though she’s clearly an authority on all things provocative, is the pop star a fashion expert too? Cyrus will guest star on Rihanna’s style competition, Styled to Rock this Friday.

Rihanna is the executive producer of the Bravo reality series in which designers compete in challenges where they design looks for celebrities. In this preview clip, the designers freak out when it’s announced that Miley will be judging their designs. But when they hear that she’s not alone, that “Miley’s mom-a-ger,” Tish Cyrus, is coming along too, the news hits them like a wrecking ball. “I just pretty much sketched out her daughter as a whore,” says one worried designer.

Lady Gaga regains title as 'Forbes' top-earning celeb under 30

Regardless of how beautiful or dirty Lady Gaga is, she is definitely rich. Forbes released the list of “The Top-Earning Celebrities Under 30″ with the pop singer reigning supreme at No. 1. Despite canceling the rest of her Born This Way Ball to undergo hip surgery, the 27-year-old performer earned an estimated $80 million from June 2012 to June 2013.

The list — which does not account for taxes, agent fees, or other related costs — includes mostly female celebrities. Nevertheless, 19-year-old pop star and rabble-rouser Justin Bieber takes second place with an estimated $58 million. Taylor Swift, Calvin Harris, and Rihanna round out the top five, earning an estimated $55 million, $46 million, and $43 million, respectively. Jennifer Lawrence is the top-earning actor/actress under 30, raking in an estimated $26 million.

Last year, Swift was crowned as the top-earner on the list with a massive world tour, continued sales on her album Speak Now, two Grammy wins, and a CoverGirl endorsement deal. This year, Gaga took over with her cut-short (but still high-earning) tour, which grossed $168 million through January 2013. She also topped the list in 2011, having brought in an estimated $90 million. With her new album, ARTPOP, to be released this November, will the Queen Monster keep her throne atop next year’s Forbes list?

Chris Brown takes apology tour to 'Today': 'What I did was totally wrong' -- VIDEO

April 1 probably wasn’t the best choice of date for Chris Brown’s big Today mea culpa. Even so, the troubled singer opened up to Matt Lauer on this morning’s show, easily fielding questions about his volatile relationship with on-again, off-again girlfriend Rihanna and earnestly expressing how much he’s changed since his 2009 felony assault charge. (The windows in Today‘s dressing rooms must be breathing a sigh of relief.)

After a few cursory inquiries about Brown’s new album, X, Lauer got down to brass tacks. The anchor asked Brown to describe how he’s matured since entering the music industry as a teenager, and then made his own assessment: “The biggest difference I would note and tell our viewers about is right now, you are agreeing to sit down and talk about things that you hadn’t talked about over the last three years.”

Brown responded with a nod, a smile, and a monologue: “I’ve been humbled by the whole experience, from me losing everything to me having to regain public opinion, or whatever it is. But most importantly, you know, knowing that what I did was totally wrong, and having to kind of deal with myself and forgive myself in the same breath, and being able to apologize to Rihanna, and being able to be that man that can be a man, you know?” Later, Brown noted that he wants his music to “inspire the world” — and, more specifically, “people that have been in my situation.” I’m not even going to touch that one.

'Law & Order: SVU': Chris Brown/Rihanna episode is one of the show's biggest bummers

There are two kinds of people who watch Law & Order: SVU — those who are legitimately captivated by its lurid storylines and hyper-competent characters, and those who enjoy the show as an example of ridiculata at its finest.

Unfortunately, members of the second camp may find themselves disappointed by last night’s episode, “Funny Valentine” — a tale of love and hip-hop that’s all too familiar to anybody who’s ever gaped at an upsetting Instagram photo. Sure, moments of absurdity crept in here and there; for example, here’s the exchange that led to the show’s version of Brown’s infamous pre-Grammys assault:

Fake Rihanna [after catching Fake Chris Brown flirting with a backup singer]: “I can’t leave you alone for five minutes without you getting trashy?”
Fake Chris Brown [menacingly]: “Who you steppin’ to?”
Fake Rihanna: “You! With this… beef cookie.” [She gestures toward the backup singer] READ FULL STORY

On the scene at Razzies 2013: Kristen Stewart, final 'Twilight' movie earn worst honors

How can one actress be so popular yet so loathed at the same time? Kristen Stewart took home the Worst Actress prize at Saturday’s Razzies and her movie, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 took home a majority of the awards at the event, which honors the worst in film each year. Maybe starring in a Twilight movie is the trick, as we overheard one Razzies-goer suggest.

The fifth installment in the lucrative teen vampire series grossed over $800 million worldwide at the box office. But that didn’t stop the Razzies from awarding Twilight with seven wins for Worst Picture, Worst Sequel, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Screen Couple, Worst Director, and Worst Screen Ensemble. That, plus KStew’s Worst Actress win makes a lot of worsts.
