We recently saw Rihanna rocking a Bob Marley bathing suit but these photos got us wondering if the singer smokes weed like the reggae icon too. Rihanna was photo’d lighting up a fat cigar on the beach, although we can’t tell if that’s a regular ol’ cigar or one filled with some wacky tabacky.

Sean Kingston Details ‘Life-Or-Death’ Accident

‘What the accident basically taught me is, in life, you have to count your blessings,’ he says during ‘MTV First: Sean Kingston.’ By Jocelyn Vena, with reporting by Sway Calloway Sean Kingston Photo: MTV News Sean Kingston sat down with MTV News on Tuesday night (August 2) and opened up for the first time about the jet-ski accident that landed him in the hospital. During “MTV First: Sean Kingston ,” the singer spoke candidly with Sway Calloway at his house in Miami about the day that changed his life forever, letting fans know that months after his jet ski crashed into a bridge near his home in Florida, he’s now back and better than ever. “I’m doing good. I’m feeling great. I’m excited. I’m happy,” he said. “A lot of people don’t know it was a deeper situation. I had open heart surgery and I had two other surgeries; it was a life-or-death situation.” Kingston — the Jamaican-American singer who broke onto the scene with the “Stand by Me”-sampling song “Beautiful Girls” and scored another hit with the Justin Bieber collabo “Eenie Meenie” last year — was rushed to the hospital May 29 after a jet-ski crash. He explained to Sway that he was going about 35 miles an hour when he miscalculated how high the tide had risen and collided with a bridge. The singer revealed for the first time in the sit-down that just as he was being released from the hospital for injuries related to the crash, he was rushed into surgery to deal with a newly discovered heart condition. “They were gonna send me home, but then I had felt a pain in my left chest, and I told my mom,” he explained. “They rushed me and they did a lot of scans on me, [and] they said I couldn’t leave.” It was discovered that blood had filled up in his chest and his aorta was torn. He went into surgery several times to fix the condition, knowing that the risks were high, but he survived, and now he’s focused on the positive. “I’m 100 percent right now,” he said. “I’ve been in the house chilling, about to start work on my new album. I got L.A. Reid now as my new president . I got a story to tell now.” Kingston isn’t taking his new lease on life lightly. “What the accident basically taught me is, in life, you have to count your blessings,” he said. “You just got to keep God present at all times and think about the consequences.” During the chat, Kingston opened up about the details of the accident, talked about the support he’s received from celebrity pals like Justin Bieber and Chris Brown , his new music and finally getting the chance to meet the man who saved him after he crashed. MTV News will be rolling out more from the interview with Kingston, who thanked his fans for all their support after the accident. Share your well-wishes for Kingston in the comments below.

Lady Gaga Calls Terry Richardson Book ‘Completely Unfiltered’

‘I didn’t hold anything back,’ Gaga tells MTV News about upcoming photo book. By James Montgomery Lady Gaga Photo: MTV News Late last month, Lady Gaga announced she was teaming with photographer/provocateur Terry Richardson to release a hefty coffee-table book, one that features more than 350 photos of the singer taken by Richardson over the course of 10 months. The two have worked together — with appropriately pulse-quickening results — several times in the past, most notably a September 2010 cover shoot for Vogue Hommes Japan that served as a sneak peek of the now-infamous meat dress she wore to the 2010 VMAs, and a clothing-optional campaign for Supreme in February 2011. But if you thought those shots were shocking, well, get ready for the duo’s book, which, as Gaga told MTV News on Monday night in New York, will push things even further. “Terry was with me for [almost] a whole year, and, gosh, I didn’t hold anything back from Terry … he was with me every minute, every moment,” she said. “It’s completely unfiltered. He has photographs of me waking up in the morning, brushing my teeth, in the bathroom, in the bathtub, the shower. And the thing about Terry, if you know anything about his photography, is that nothing is staged; I mean, that’s sort of what he is renowned for. He can get you to do things and he can capture things that no one can ever capture. “What I love so much about Terry is that he thinks everything is so beautiful. I’m always, ‘Oh Terry, get out of here,’ and he’s like, ‘Oh, it’s so beautiful, let me just shoot it,’ ” she continued. “I felt so comfortable with Terry. I love him so much. He’s a really close friend, and I feel really honored that he traveled [with me].” Gaga said the self-titled book (which hits stores November 22) not only showcases her whirlwind life — it follows her from the main stage of Lollapalooza to her Maine rally to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell” to the final shows of her Monster Ball Tour in Mexico City — but the lives of her ultra-dedicated fans too. That was as much a goal as the unfettered access was. And, from the sound of things, the book manages to accomplish both. “My favorite thing, honestly, is that [Richardson] loved the fans. He shot the fans the same way he shot me: with no pretense. No ‘Well, she’s put out records and they haven’t.’ None of that. The music was all of ours,” she said. “He would come backstage and he would say, ‘Oh my God, the fans! ‘ And I’d say, ‘I know … I know what you just photographed.’ And he’d say, ‘Baby, wow! ‘ And then he’d film me, like, peeing in a cup and, like, ridiculous things.” Related Photos A Day In The Life Of Lady Gaga Related Artists Lady Gaga

Rihanna’s ‘Man Down’ Producers Tease Her Next Album

‘We did two records for her that she really, really loved,’ the Jugganauts producer Verse Simmonds tells Mixtape Daily. By Rob Markman Verse Simmonds Photo: MTV News Behind the Beats: Verse Simmonds After finding success crafting the music for Rihanna’s “Man Down,” the production duo known as the Jugganauts — Sham “Sak Pase” Joseph and Verse Simmonds — are looking to recapture the magic on the Bajan beauty’s upcoming sixth album. “From what I understand, she is closing the album up now, and we did two records for her that she really, really loved and I’m really excited about them as well,” Simmonds told Mixtape Daily. “They are records that we wrote and produced as the Jugganauts.” Simmonds is hoping that he and partner Sak Pase land another track on Rihanna’s album. And while he couldn’t confirm the Jugganauts’ contributions will make the final cut, he said was “99.999 percent” certain for now. For those wondering whether the singer’s new tunes will sound anything like the reggae-infused “Man Down,” Simmonds says no. “Nah, definitely not, because we always try to constantly — as producers, as artists — we try to always come with something different, a whole new sound,” he said without elaborating on what that new record would sound like. As far as his chemistry with Sak Pase, with whom he did production work on Jay-Z and Kanye West’s upcoming Watch the Throne album , the two seem to have a pretty organic working relationship. “In the studio, it can go one of two ways: Most times I’m writing and he’s creating the track, and we produce a lot of records like that,” Verse said. “Sometimes it’ll flip; he’ll be writing and I’ll be producing the track so it depends on the vibe, and who comes in there first, who’s got an idea or concept.” For other artists featured in Mixtape Daily, check out Mixtape Daily Headlines .

‘Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’ Stars Give Apes Top Billing

Tom Felton, James Franco and other castmembers say come for the apes, stay for the story … or just the apes. By Kara Warner Freida Pinto and James Franco at the “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” premiere Photo: Frazer Harrison/ Getty Images HOLLYWOOD — There is enough intrigue, presumed destruction and primate shenanigans in the trailers for “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” to entice more than just the fans of the 1968 original into theaters when the film opens next week. But when MTV News caught up with the principal castmembers at the Hollywood premiere on Thursday, we asked them to sell us on a few more of the film’s must-see elements, aside from their furry co-stars. Basically, if people come to see the apes, what will make them stay? “Wow, James [Franco], Freida [Pinto], Andy [Serkis], everyone else,” Tom Felton said, speaking to his co-stars’ appeal. “There is a mixture of CGI and special effects that we’ve never seen onscreen before, along with a strong story and a strong message: Humans can’t play God too much. We should not overstep our boundaries when it comes to manipulating Mother Nature.” Pinto countered that it’s all about the apes. “I think this is one of few films that really give them a voice as well,” she said. “Of course, ‘Planet of the Apes’ did as well, but ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ gives them a voice in a very revolutionary way.” One of the prominent primate voices heard is that of Caesar, played by seasoned motion-capture performer Andy Serkis, who, according to Franco, is the main reason why the film is any good. “The apes, I think Andy Serkis and WETA should get top billing,” Franco said. “They stole the show; they’re incredible.” Actor John Lithgow, who plays the father of Franco’s character, was the only one who thought folks will start out loving the apes and leave loving the humans. “They [will] stay for the people, and the extent to which the apes become people,” he said. “It’s a story, it’s a great story, that’s why they stay.” Check out everything we’ve got on “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.” For breaking news, celebrity columns, humor and more — updated around the clock — visit MTVMoviesBlog.com .

Lady Gaga Finally Confirms ‘You And I’ As Her Next Single

Gaga performed the song twice on Thursday, on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ By Jocelyn Vena Lady Gaga on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Photo: ABC Perhaps it wasn’t that big of a secret to begin with, but on Thursday night when Lady Gaga stopped by ” Jimmy Kimmel Live! ” the singer finally confirmed what everybody already presumed: “You and I” will be her next single from Born This Way. When asked what she planned to perform that night in addition to “The Edge of Glory,” Gaga replied, “I’m going to sing my brand-new single ‘You and I.’ ” She recently shot the video for the track in Nebraska. Gaga also performed those two tracks on “So You Think You Can Dance” on Thursday night, following her appearance on the show the day before as a guest judge. Before taking the “Kimmel” stage and pounding the keys on her piano for the track, she joked around with the host about her killer cooking skills, her five Emmy nods for her HBO special and, of course, her nomination for the Bowling Hall of Fame. “I am a good bowler pre-Budweiser,” she laughed. “And then once the beers start loading up, I become worse and worse, which is really great for whoever takes me out on the date, ’cause I’m a good, cheap date and a terrible bowler.” So, does Gaga ever don bowling shoes? “Absolutely not!” she said. “What if one of my fans walked into the bowling alley and saw me in flats? They’d have a heart attack.” When Kimmel asked if one day she planned on actually creating any Little Monsters of her own, the always forthright Gaga shared that she does plan on starting a family someday. “Do I want to have kids? Someday … long, long day from now,” she said. She joked about whether or not she’d love her kids even if they didn’t turn out to be gay, telling Kimmel, “No, I actually don’t even like you ’cause you’re not.” Gaga also just announced the planned release of a coffee-table book, called “Lady Gaga,” the photos for which are by fashion photographer Terry Richardson. The book is due out in November. Related Artists Lady Gaga
