Gwen Stefani Says Her Kids Are Excited for Fetty Wap Collab

Gwen Stefani says that while her kids don’t see her as a pop star, they're still pretty psyched for her new music -- particularly her collaboration with Fetty Wap. “They’re excited for me to have new music,” Gwen tells Entertainment Weekly of her three boys: Kingston, Zuma and Apollo. “And I got Fetty Wap on my record! They’re excited about that!” “But,” she adds, “it’s funny how kids really don’t want you to do anything except be their mom.

Rihanna Graces April Cover of Vogue, Talks Beyonce Comparisons

Rihanna shines on the cover of the April issue of Vogue, in which she speaks on a wide range of topics, including her collaboration with Puma and her New York Fashion show. But Rihanna also made sure to share her thoughts on being pitted against Beyoncé. “They just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative," says Rihanna. "Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to." If you recall, the comparisons began anew after Beyonce released her "Formation" video almost a week after Ri's long-awaited album, ANTI. An un-bothered…
