The 26-year-old rapper ‘ who is a close friend of the ‘Only Girl (In the World)’ hitmaker ‘ revealed the pop superstar always touches her body when they see each other. She said: “Rihanna heard my song, ‘Fly’, and loved it. She sang it beautifully, so now when I see her she of course teasingly fondles me. She fondled me at the MTV Awards and the America Music Awards. I love her.
“She’s the best fondler ever because security didn’t hem her up and she left to tell about it!”
Nicki also says she likes to compliment fellow females in her raps because she thinks it will boost their self-esteem.
In an interview with i-D magazine, she added: “The way I rap is the way I speak, it’s conversational. I try not to limit what I put in my raps. People can take from my raps whatever they want to take out of it. When I say, ‘My bad b****es’ or comment on a girl, I think I should be able to say women are beautiful and I don’t have a problem with that.
“If you want to read more into it, then that’s on you. Maybe it makes a better fantasy in your brain, but I just do what I do. That’s the way I speak. I like to compliment girls and make them feel proud and make them feel better about who they are, no matter how they look.”
The 22-year-old singer – whose second record ’21′ debuted at number one in the UK album charts last month – admitted the end of her “amazing, immense relationship” helped her to write a whole host of passionate songs.
She said: “I had the most amazing, immense relationship. It didn’t last, unfortunately – it stopped being fun, but thankfully the ending wasn’t bitter. The whole thing changed me. It made me really passionate about love, life, me – pretty much everything.”
However, after the success of her debut album ’19′, Adele was unsure how she could improve her second record.
She added to Reveal Magazine: “Before I went into the studio I wondered how on earth I was going to beat the first album. But it was like a tap that’s difficult to turn off. The relationship I’d been in just consumed me, which is where the songs came from.
“It’s important to me that people believe what I write about. They’re honest and it’s quite exhausting writing them because they’re all about my emotions and me. I’d hate it if someone thought, ‘Yeah, whatever, she has made them all up’.”

Recording is being done at Liscombe Park Studios in Buckinghamshire, England and the band is aiming to for a release sometime in 2011. The band’s output has been spotty over the last twelve years. In 1998, they released Sonic Origami with a lineup that included original members Bernie Shaw and Mick Box along with Phil Lanzon (joined in 1986), Trevor Boulder (1976 to 1981 and 1983 to present) and Lee Kerslake (1971 to 1979 and 1981 to 2007). Kerslake was replaced by Russell Gilbrook in 2007 and the group released their first studio album in ten years with Wake the Sleeper. They followed it in 2009 with Celebration which contained rerecorded versions of a number of their classics plus two new tracks. The group also recently released a new live album, Official Bootleg Volume II: Live in Budapest, Hungary 2010, recorded at their May 4, 2010 performance at Petofi Hall. The band said the following about the album: “There are going to be many more recordings from around the world, as this will be an ongoing series, giving fans the chance to hear the band in many different countries. “These recordings are true official bootlegs in every sense and they reflect that nights performance as it happened, totally untouched. You can almost feel that you are at the concert, so put the CD on, turn it up loud, close your eyes and enjoy a night in Budapest with Uriah Heep.”

My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way dyed his hair in rebellion. The My Chemical Romance singer has coloured his locks bright pink ahead of the release of his group’s fourth album ‘Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys’, and admits his change of image was a deliberate move to save the group from being categorised with other older musicians. He said: ”m happier, but I think in some odd ways more rebellious. “In some ways the colour is more rebellious, even if it’s self-rebellion, there’s no big, secret, hidden enemy. “We’re in our 30s and we’re in a rock band and you see things start to happen with bands at that period of life. I think it was a rebellion against that, against being brought into that whole modern rock thing.” The 33-year-old star also admitted the group’s introduction of more colour in their wardrobe away from the blacks which dominated their look around their last album ‘The Black Parade’ was a gradual move. He explained: ‘Every week someone would show up with something new that was colour, like, ‘Oh I got these sneakers that are in colour,’ and it kind of crept in almost like a virus into our lives. “And then we had normal-looking wardrobes after a while.” ‘Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys’ is released on November 22
