Rihanna’s X-rated Millennium Stadium show fails to hit the thigh notes

Rihanna

Massive stadium shows by massive stadium-filling pop stars tend to come with a concept. When fans are paying upwards of £60 a ticket, it pays to put in some effort and go all out on spectacle.

Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Madonna festoon their shows with fireworks, crazy hydraulics, “meaningful” am-dram narratives and a vast supporting cast of choirs, dancers and circus performers. Rihanna, who has had more No 1 singles than Beyoncé and Gaga combined, does none of this. Rihanna’s concept is her vagina.

Given that the mega-selling Barbadian pop star spends a large proportion of her leisure time tweeting close-ups of her arse cheeks to her 30 million followers, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that her crotch gets top billing here.

She strokes it, she thrusts it, she jiggles it, she spanks it and then she strokes it some more. The Diamonds tour is essentially one long celebration of Rihanna’s lady-parts. Rumour has it that, at the end of this tour, her vagina will launch a solo career. It would be churlish at this stage not to wish it well.

And the music? Seven albums in seven years has ensured that a Rihanna set isn’t short of hits, even if some of them are lost in the sticky sludge of trashy Euro-techno/R&B fusion.

Her set is divided into five acts, broken up with costume changes and apparently reflecting the various facets of her career (who knew?). It opens in muted fashion with the singer kneeling in a black cape, studded thigh-high boots and hotpants in front of a female statue on a video screen while singing “Mother Mary”. It’s a rare moment of calm in the relentless and ultimately wearying bump ‘n’ grind- fest to come, which reaches its apogee in “Rude Boy” (“Come here rude boy, is you big enough?”) and “Jump” (“Ride it my pony/My saddle is waitin”). Throughout all this Rihanna’s face remains impassive and inscrutable.

There are moments, however, when she lets the sex-bomb mask slip. For the stomping, Nineties-style raveathon “We Found Love” she emerges in a sequin-encrusted, dollar bill-smothered puffa jacket and matching trainers thatEastEnders’ Bianca Jackson would deem too tacky, punching the air and bouncing into the crowd to commune with fans. It’s here that the show finally comes alive. Rihanna breaks into a smile and her nether regions take a well-earned break.

Police arrest four teens over fire at London Islamic school

Police arrest four teens over fire at London Islamic school

By Marian Smith, Staff Writer, NBC News

LONDON — British police arrested four teenagers late Sunday on suspicion of setting fire to an Islamic school amid fears of anti-Muslim attacks in retribution for the brutal killing of a soldier last month.

The Metropolitan Police said four males, two aged 18 and two aged 17, were being held at a South London police station. Police presence was being increased “around locations that might be at risk,” police said.

The fire occurred late Saturday night at the Darul Uloom Islamic High School & College in Southeast London and was quickly extinguished, police said. There were minor damages to the building, which was briefly evacuated.

The incident follows another suspected arson attack at an Islamic center in North London on Wednesday. In that attack, the letters “EDL” — the far-right group English Defence League — were found written on the building, but the organization said it was not involved in the fire.

“We should not allow the murder of Lee Rigby to come between Londoners,” Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said in a statement. “The unified response we have seen to his death across all communities will triumph over those who seek to divide us.”

Rigby, 25, was killed in broad daylight outside an army barracks in South London on May 22. His death is is being treated as a terror attack because eyewitness accounts and video evidence suggest it was carried out in protest of Western military involvement in Muslim countries.

The gory murder has raised fears of reprisal attacks against Muslims.

Beyoncé and rapper husband Jay-Z have performed together at a gig in London to raise awareness of a new campaign supporting girls and women across the globe.

Jennifer Lopez, Ellie Goulding, and Rita Ora were also among a host of stars at Twickenham singing in aid of Chime For Change, which promotes education, health and justice for women.

Crazy In Love singer Beyonce Knowles – who is mum to one-year-old Blue Ivy Carter – said: “Women’s rights have always been close to my heart.

“Being a mother, it’s really important that I do what I can and use my voice. There are many women around the world that don’t have one.

“We have to use our voices and raise awareness and be part of something where we can leave our legacy and help improve this world.”

Chime for Change was founded by Beyoncé, actress Salma Hayek, and Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini.

Its website will host information about 120 not-for-profit organisations that promote gender equality, which people can then choose to fund directly.

The concert was broadcast in 150 countries to an estimated audience of one billion people.

Pop queen Madonna was not among the performers at Twickenham, but she appeared in a short film about women.

She told the crowd: “What happens when we educate girls? We empower them. They have jobs, they have opportunities, they know their rights, they have the ability to defend themselves, support their families and be an integral, productive part of the human race.”

The concert took place 100 years to the day since Emily Davison became a martyr for women’s rights, when she threw herself in front of a horse at the Epsom Derby.

London Woolwich murder suspect arrested after hospital release

London Woolwich murder suspect arrested after hospital release

One of two men accused of murdering a British soldier on a London street last week has been arrested by detectives after being discharged from hospital today.

soldier_murder_suspect_had_been_deported_354633480 28, had been undergoing treatment after being shot by police in the aftermath of the attack on Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich, southeast London last Friday.

He is now in custody at a south London police station where he is being quizzed by counter terrorism detectives on suspicion of murdering Rigby and the attempted murder of a police officer.

On Thursday, the other of the two suspects, Michael Adebowale, appeared in court charged with murdering the soldier.

The attack caused “extensive and serious injuries” to Rigby who was on his way home to army barracks in Woolwich after working at the Tower of London, Detective Chief Inspector Grant Mallon told an inquest into his death.

The inquest was adjourned to an unspecified date to allow police time to continue their inquiries.

Separately yesterday, officers investigating Rigby’s killing said they had arrested two men aged 42 and 46 in east and north London on suspicion of being involved in the supply of illegal firearms. No further details were given.

Earlier, Rigby’s family released a statement saying his death should not be used as a pretext for reprisal attacks, amid mounting community tensions.

There have been attacks against mosques in the wake of the killing and far-right groups plan demonstrations in several English cities this weekend.

“We would like to emphasise that Lee would not want people to use his name as an excuse to carry out attacks against others,” the family statement said.

“Lee loved life and he loved people. He had many friends from different walks of life – some with different religious beliefs and cultures. But this made no difference to Lee,” they added.

Detectives last night charged a friend of Adebolajo with three offences under the terrorism act which they said were unrelated to the Woolwich incident.

Abu Nusaybah, 31, who was arrested immediately after giving an interview to the BBC in the wake of last week’s attack, is accused of recording video lectures and helping others to access content that encouraged viewers to commit, prepare or instigate acts of terrorism.

Nusaybah, also known as Ibrahim Abdullah-Hassan, from east London, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court last night for a brief hearing. His defence counsel Mozammel Hossain indicated he would be entering not guilty pleas.

French investigate Woolwich ‘copy-cat’ attack on terrorism patrol soldier in Paris

French investigate Woolwich ‘copy-cat’ attack on terrorism patrol soldier in Paris

The soldier was wounded in the incident which happened as he patrolled the French capital’s La Defense business district with two comrades.

An attack on a French soldier in a busy underground railway station near Paris on Saturday might have been a spur-of-the-moment copy of London’s Woolwich killing, French investigators believe.#

France’s terrorism investigation unit was called in to lead the hunt for a man of Fren appearance who stabbed in the neck a soldier on anti-terrorist patrol amid thousands of Saturday shoppers.

The soldier was cut, possibly by a box-cutter, close to his carotid artery. He bled profusely but was not seriously injured. His wound needed only one stitch.

Officially, the French government is making no direct link with the killing of a British soldier by two Islamist radicals on a street in Woolwich last Wednesday. Unofficially, investigators are said to believe it was almost certainly a copy-cat attack, possibly carried out on the spur of the moment.

The French defence minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian,  who visited the injured man in hospital, said that it was clear that “someone wanted to kill him because he was a soldier”. The interior minister, Manuel Valls, said France would continue to wage an “implacable fight against terrorism”.

Cedric Cordier, 23, of the 4th cavalry regiment, was patrolling in battle-dress with a policeman and another soldier in the underground concourse of the RER (regional Metro) station at La Défense just west of Paris just before 6pm on Saturday. Anti-terrorist patrols of this kind have become a common sight in France since a  series of murderous bomb attacks on the Paris Metro in the mid-1990s.

The attacker came up behind the soldier, who was the last man in the patrol, and slashed or stabbed his neck with a blade.

The attacker, described as a muscular man in his earlier thirties and of North African appearance, fled into the adjoining shopping centre before the other members of the patrol could react. The area bristled with security cameras whose footage is being studied.

The so-called “Vigipirate” armed military patrols on busy streets and in metro and railways stations are supposed to deter terrorist attacks. They have often been criticised as more decorative than useful. If they become, themselves, an easy target for low-level terrorism, the French government may have to abandon them or revert to police-only patrols.

President François Hollande, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia,  for a conference on African unity, said: “We will examine all possibilities. I see no reason at this stage to make a link with what happened in London. But we must look into all possibilities, without exception.”

Woolwich attack: Armed officers arrest fifth man in connection with death of Lee Rigby

Woolwich attack: Armed officers arrest fifth man in connection with death of Lee Rigby

A MAN was arrested today by counter-terrorism officers in connection with the death of Drummer Lee Rigby, Scotland Yard said.

Armed officers were involved in the arrest of the man, 22, on suspicion of conspiracy to murder, in St Paul’s Road in Highbury Grove, north London, the Metropolitan Police said.

He is the fifth man to be arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder Drummer Rigby, 25, in Woolwich, south east London, last Wednesday.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “At 2.35pm today a 22-year-old man was arrested by officers from the MPS Counter-Terrorism Command investigating the murder of Lee Rigby.

“The man was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder by detectives supported by specialist firearms officers.

“He has been taken to a south-London police station where he remains in custody.

“He was arrested in St Paul’s Road, in Highbury Grove, north London.”

The latest arrest came hours after members of the serviceman’s family visited the scene of his murder.

His widow Rebecca, mother Lyn, 46, and stepfather Ian, 54, laid flowers at the Woolwich Barracks where the soldier with the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers was based, and where hundreds of floral tributes have already been left by wellwishers.

Their visit came as Home Secretary Theresa May warned today there are potentially thousands of people at risk of being radicalised in the UK, as she indicated plans for a fresh crackdown on extremist groups.

Nine people have now been arrested in connection with Drummer Rigby’s death.

Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale, 22, who are being held on suspicion of murder, remain in hospital.

Three men aged 28, 24 and 21 remain in police custody after being arrested yesterday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder.

A 29-year-old man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder has been released on bail, police said last night.

Two women aged 29 and 31 who were held on Thursday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder have been released without charge.

Kenyan anti-terrorism police today confirmed that Adebolajo had previously been arrested in the country close to the border with Somalia, where al Qaida-linked militant group al-Shabab is based.

Anti-terrorism unit head Boniface Mwaniki told the Associated Press he was arrested in 2010 along with five other men, all believed to have been preparing to train and fight with the group.

He said Adebolajo was later deported.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman confirmed that a British national was arrested in Kenya in 2010. “FCO provided consular assistance as normal for British nationals,” she said.

Kenya’s government spokesman later said Adebolajo,was arrested under a different name and taken to court before being handed to British authorities.

“Kenya’s government arrested Michael Olemindis Ndemolajo. We handed him to British security agents in Kenya and he seems to have found his way to London and mutated to Michael Adebolajo,” said spokesman Muthui Kariuki.

“The Kenyan government cannot be held responsible for what happened to him after we handed him to British authorities.”

London: Man hacked to death with meat cleavers outside Woolwich army base. Terrorist?

London: Man hacked to death with meat cleavers outside Woolwich army base. Terrorist?

Woolwich-attacker-suspects-1905276

A man has been hacked to death and possibly beheaded in a suspected terrorist attack outside a military base in south-east London.

Key Points

  • Cleaver murder victim believed to be soldier
  • Mobile phone footage shows attacker attempting to justify attack
  • Alleged attackers shot by police
  • Witness: “They were just animals.”
  • PM David Cameron cuts short France visit

 

Eyewitnesses say two men used a car to run the victim over in broad daylight on a street about 200 metres from the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich.

The men then attacked him with knives and a gun and then remained at the scene, asking passers-by to photograph and film them.

Footage shows one of the men carrying a blood-covered knife and meat cleaver and saying to the camera: “We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you.”

Watch the ITV footage (warning: contains graphic images).

Armed police shot and wounded the two attackers after being called to the incident by bystanders.

There are reports the dead man was a serving soldier who was wearing a t-shirt with the logo of the Help for Heroes military charity.

Witnesses describe horror of ‘crazy’ attack

One eyewitness, identified only as James, told local radio station LBC the two assailants “were hacking at this poor guy”.

“We thought they were trying to remove organs or something.

“These two guys were crazy, they just were not there, they were just animals.”

In the footage of the aftermath of the attack, one of the attackers makes a number of political statements while the body of his victim lies in the road behind him.

Speaking in a London accent, the man, looking agitated and angry, said: “I apologise that women had to witness that, but in our lands our women have to see the same thing.

“You people will never be safe. Remove your government. They don’t care about you.”

“They were just animals,” one eyewitness said.

“They then dragged the poor guy, he was obviously dead. There was no way a human could take that, what they did to him.

“They dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road.”

Eyewitness Michael Atley said there was blood all over the road.

“It’s a scene out of a horror movie, to be honest,” he said. “It’s incredible, absolutely incredible, never seen nothing like it.

“Just a bad day. A bad day for the whole of Britain.”

PM Cameron rushes back from Paris, security tightened

Security is being tightened at British military bases in the wake of the attack.

Prime minister David Cameron, who rushed back from Paris to chair an emergency national security meeting, said there were “strong indications” that the killing was “a terrorist incident.”

“The police are urgently seeking the full facts about this case but there are strong indications that it is a terrorist incident,” he said from Paris.

“People in every community, I believe, will utterly condemn this attack.

“We have had these sorts of attacks before in our country and we never buckle in the face of them.”

Home secretary Theresa May said in a statement: “This is a sickening and barbaric attack.”

London mayor Boris Johnson said security would be boosted at all London barracks.

“I know that Londoners have been through terrorism before and this city has a huge resilience,” he said.

“What we also have is the best, the most professional security services and the best police in the world to protect us and they are now going to get to the bottom of what’s happened.”

Police are on alert for disturbances across London, with reports that supporters of the far-right English Defence League had clashed with police in Woolwich.
