Rihanna Get Fitted For Gold Grill


Rihanna Shows Off New Grill

Pop superstar Rihanna has never been shy about tattoos. So why should a grill for her teeth be any different? The 23-year-old recently showed off her new golden grill in a sneak peek for her upcoming video "You Da One."

Rihanna's new dental accessory is causing no small amount of interest on the Web. The grill appears be to be gold and covers only the lower half of her mouth. For those who aren't well versed, most grills are removable, but sometimes the grill is permanently attached.

Of course, Rihanna is far from the first person to cover her teeth with gold or diamonds. Kanye West and Lil' Wayne have both done it. In fact, Lil' Wayne's grill is pretty much permanent. During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, he said, "The grills ... the grills, they come out. These don't, I'm going to die with these. So these are my teeth. I can go to the dentist and switch them out, but it's surgery."

No word on whether Rihanna made a similar commitment. However, the language Rihanna uses in a video that shows her getting fitted for the grill implies that it isn't permanent. "I'm getting a grill made," Rihanna mumbles, "for an upcoming video shoot." To us, that translates to: "Don't freak out, fans; it's temporary."
That would probably be a smart move, businesswise. In addition to having a singing career, Rihanna is a spokesmodel for CoverGirl. Something tells us the company wouldn't be too thrilled if Rihanna couldn't remove her golden grill during photo shoots.

Deion Sanders announces divorce on Facebook


Former Dallas Cowboy and NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders hosted a pregame show for his old Texas team Saturday. (Sanders also played for the San Francisco 49ers back in 1994.) On Saturday, as soon as he was cleared from the air he announced he's getting a divorce via Facebook.
To My Friends and Family,
Pilar and I have decided to end our marriage and move on to the next phase of our individual lives with mutual respect. We are friends and our top priority has and will continue to be the well-being of our children. We arrived at this decision prayerfully and carefully in order to be able to pursue what is in both of our best personal interests. Neither Pilar or I will be discussing this any further and thank you in advance for respecting the privacy of our family. Truth
Sanders also used Facebook to confirm the story to TMZ.  About 30 minutes after his divorce post Sanders "liked" a link from TMZ with an "exclusive" that Sanders told TMZ he was was divorcing his wife (though the quotes appear to be those of his Facebook post).
There were rumors the couple was headed for divorce in late September but Deion Sanders came out with a strongly worded denial.
Deion and Pilar Sanders have been married for twelve years and have three children together.
