Rihanna // "Inglorious Basterds" movie premiere in the UK

Singer Rihanna turned it up a notch as she hit up the premiere of “Inglorious Basterds” at the Odeon Leicester Square Thursday (Jul 23) in London, England.

If you’ve been wondering why she decided to shave the side of her head, we just learned that it wasn’t for “fun” or to “make a statement.” In fact, her hairstylist Ursula Stephen revealed to S2S magazine that it was done for a photoshoot for the annual Black issue of Italian Vogue Magazine.

“It was really done for an Italian Vogue shoot,” she said during a phone interview. “It was crazy and I can’t wait until it comes out.”
