Way, way back when Rihanna was known by her given name of Robyn Fenty, the singer wasn’t a super sexy, skin-showing, tattoo-toting temptress. She was a typical gawky, geeky teen who liked to look for UFOs in her native habitat of Barbados. She was also a motivated, model student. Really?

She dropped ‘Talk That Talk,’ which has spawned several hits, last November and she’s ready to strike while the iron is hot again.
Part 2 of ‘Justin Bieber: All Around the World’ picked up where last night’s episode left off, with Justin Bieber having passed out after sustaining a concussion, being attended to and and then performing for more screaming fans. Make that screaming-their-heads-off fans. He hangs with cool folks (the Mrs., Jimmy Fallon) and blows up the Apollo. Literally. With a power outage.
