Rihanna's Big Changes

Less than a year ago, Rihanna's life was turned upside down after she was assaulted by former boyfriend Chris Brown. Now the singer seems to be putting the traumatic past behind her.

On Saturday, she was spotted at the LA Clippers Cleveland-Cavaliers game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with her new pal, Dodgers star Matt Kemp, wearing her hair styled in angelic golden ringlets. The pop star, who will celebrate her 22nd birthday next month, appears to have kept her famous graduated bob hairstyle, adding playful curls for her day at the game.

In addition to the new style, photographers captured the singer with a perpetual and very sincere-looking grin on her face. Last week, Rihanna opened up to W magazine about coming out of the fog of last winter: "At first I completely shut down. But now I feel like this happened to me so I could be a voice for young girls who are going through what I went through and dont know how to talk about it."

She also revealed a desire to focus on her budding acting career, briefly cut short by all the media attention surrounding her private life last year. As everyone who watched her fall appearance on "SNL" can attest, Rihanna has comedic acting skills that rival her talent as a singer.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is larger than life— the sets are fantastical, the angel wings are enormous, the lashes are a foot long, the heels are a mile high, and the diamonds are aplenty. But the main attraction is a group of carefully chosen, otherworldly supermodels. We caught up with a few of them pre-show, including veteran Angel Heidi Klum, and first-timer Chanel Iman.
