Dear RiRi,

Happy Birthday, you fabulous, fashionable, and undeniably sexy woman! Thank you for inviting us into your amazing birthday via instagram -- we are totally jealous that we couldn't be there with you! Like, oh my god, it looks amazing.

You've had quite a year and we are so proud of how strong you are. You started off at 25 with then boyfriend, Chris Brown, which you got over (just like all of us) with tweets and instagram posts. You are now flirting up a storm with Drake, and we totally love it. We are so proud! You go girl!

CULINARY OCCASIONS
Beyonce-Themed Valentine's Day Dinner

Brucie, an Italian restaurant in Brooklyn, will feature a special menu for Valentine's Day inspired by Beyonce and her boo Jay-Z. The Carrol Gardens eatery put together appetizers, pastas, and a main course with punny names and related ingredients.

For example, the starter options include dishes like Blue Ivy (smoked blue potatoes, chiriboga blue, trout roe, and watercress) and Oysters Rocafella. Items on the pasta menu are Jay-Ziti ("Carter" clothbound cheddar, speck, sweet potato, and sage pistu) and Halo (angel hair pasta, truffle, burnt angel food cake breadcrumbs). The last course is composed of meat entrees as per typical Italian style, with options like Breastiny's Child, a veal breast braciole, pickled fig, sopresatta, and goat yogurt or the Drunk in Love with negroni short rib, beef heart salad, and farro gremalata. Don't forget to add some Beyonce-ified sides such as the Diva is a female version of a brusstla (which we're assuming means brussel sprouts).

CELEB SPOTTINGS
Beyonce Without Makeup

Shockingly awesome, of course, Beyonce uploaded a bare-faced photo of herself yesterday on Instagram. The photo inevitably became viral shortly after she posted what looks like a selfie of herself. She looks refreshingly human, quite a stark contrast from her empowering performance at the GRAMMY's last Sunday.

But that's why we all love Queen Bey. She can play up the drunk-in-love vixen role for a performance then turn it down for a more personal look for social media.

Special kudos to the Instagram app for changing the way celebrities can share all their personal photos with fans!

Madonna Defends Controversial Instagram Photo

Although at this point in her career Madonna is no stranger controversy, this time it involves her son Rocco. The singer posted a photo of her son, whom she had with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, on her Instagram account that shows him with some friends holding bottles of vodka and gin. The photo, which she captioned, “The party has just begun! Bring it! 2014,” has garnered over a 1,000 comments.

Even though the picture was taken in Switzerland where the legal drinking age is 16, Rocco is still underage being that he is only 13. While Madonna has been criticized for posting the photo, fans of the singer have been leaving comments defending her and her actions.

On January 5, the singer posted another photo of Rocco’s friends that appear in the controversial picture with him with the caption, "No one was drinking we were just having fun! Calm down and get a sense of humor! Don't start the year off with judgement!"
