Rihanna selfie with endangered animal leads to arrests in Thailand

Pop star Rihanna spent a weekend at the beach in Thailand, leaving behind a trail of racy tweets and an incriminating Instagram photograph showing her cuddling an endangered primate. That didn’t sit well with authorities, who arrested two people for allegedly peddling protected species.

On a break from her Diamonds World Tour, Rihanna visited the Thai island of Phuket, where she befriended the wildlife.

An Instagram photo she also shared on Twitter showed her in sunglasses snuggling up to a furry primate called the slow loris and was captioned: “Look who was talkin dirty to me!”

The slow loris, a squirrel-like animal with big eyes, is native to Southeast Asia and is listed as a protected species.

“Phuket authorities were alerted to the picture (of Rihanna), and last night police arrested the two individuals who brought out the loris as a photo opportunity for tourists,” a Phuket district chief, Weera Kerdsirimongkon, said by telephone Sunday. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber fires back on Instagram -- he's tired of the 'countless lies,' LOLs all over the place

Here are the three most important things we learned from Justin Bieber’s since-deleted Instagram manifesto this morning, published in response to his recent whirlwind of negative attention:

Justin Bieber is sick and tired of the “countless lies in the press right now.”

Justin Bieber is not going to rehab.

Justin Bieber is “laughing out loud.”

The singer deleted the post hours after uploading it, but not before getting his message across: We, the lying press, have been too hard on Bieber, with the lying and the lies. We have also been telling his family that he is going to rehab. (For which we should actually feel pretty terrible.) “If Anyone believes i need rehab thats their own stupidity lol,” he wrote.

But Bieber is a forgiving pop deity: “I’m writing this with a smile on my face and love in my heart. Letting u know first hand how I feel rather than have these story linger. I’m a good person with a big heart. And don’t think I deserve all of this negative press I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn’t stop here.”

The statement feels rushed and refreshing in equal measure, especially after multiple reports about paparazzo near-misses and trips to the hospital and Worst Birthdays Ever.

Now we can all just ignore that last part where he implies that Lindsay Lohan is poorer than he is and/or prepare for her response via Vine. Stay tuned.
