After lighting up the red carpet at the Fashion Los Angeles Awards, Rihanna hit the Hollywood shopping scene for a little retail therapy. Peep her pics and get the deets on the new season of “R&B Divas: L.A.” inside….

Rihanna made sure to turn heads in nothing but a gold and silver sequined jacket at the Fashion L.A. Awards this weekend. But our favorite bad gal can also turn heads in a laid back look, rocking a crop top and high slit skirt while on a recent shopping excursion.

The Bajan beauty picked up a few new items from the trendy Alice and Olivia in Beverly Hills today, pulling off a look like only she can.

As we all wait patiently for Rih’s newest LP (dubbed R8), the “Diamonds” singer released her Kanye West & Paul McCartney-assisted track “Four, Five Seconds”. Definitely something new and different from Rih’s other hits.

Also, the DreamWorks animated film HOME, where she voices the character Tip, will be released March 27th. Check this clip of Rihanna revealing what “home” means to her below:

In tv news….

While s new season of “R&B Divas: Atlanta” seems to be up in the air, TVOne’s “R&B Divas: L.A.” is back for a brand new season. And we’ll be seeing what the ladies are up to sooner rather than later when the season premieres February 11th at 10PM ET. Looks like most of the original cast Chanté Moore, Lil’ Mo, Michel’le, Chrisette Michele and Leela James will be returning for season 3. All except Claudette Ortiz. But, two new members will be joining the franchise in her place.

In a press release about the upcoming season, it reads:

This season will add a new Divas, Christina “Brave” Williams who will set out to overcome the obstacles associated with being a new artist and Stacy Francis, who earned her stripes in the theatre, seeks to successfully transition into the new world of R&B. Additionally, alumni cast members will make their season three return. Tensions are heightened and emotions are explosive as the Divas come together to mend their volatile relationships. Additionally, the Divas put their charitable side on display as they band together to give back to the community.

Will you be tuned in?
