The 23-year-old Barbadian beauty poses for the November issue in nothing but patches of seaweed.

Of course, it's rare an interview where her ex, Chris Brown, doesn't come up. Despite their violent history, Rihanna says she’s put the past behind her and even calls herself a fan.

Tracy Morgan: Homophobic remarks a 'misunderstanding'

Although Tracy Morgan could've told David Letterman on Monday's "Late Show" that he was tired of talking about his stand-up performance that caused massive controversy over the summer, the "30 Rock" star chatted about it anyway.

Letterman brought up the situation, which began after Morgan went on a homophobic rant during a comedy show in June. Among his remarks was the comment that he'd "stab his son to death if he said he was gay," reported one show attendee.

Morgan apologized, and he told Letterman on Monday of the incident, "At the end of the day, I'm a comedian. I try to use my gift that God gave me to help the world, to heal the world. Not to hurt anyone. I was hurt because people came to the show who were bummed out, so I apologize to those folks who came and were bummed out."

Movie scores dazzle, baffle on 'DWTS'

"Dancing With the Stars" was a tribute to movie scores, and what better way to start Monday's show than by explaining to viewers what a score is through dance?

Yeah, I can probably think of four or five better ways myself. Seriously, ABC could have cut this episode by 30 minutes instead of having the pros run around with light sabers.

Now on to the actual show, and Chynna Phillips is first up. Her mission, if she chooses to accept it, is to dance a tango to the "Mission: Impossible" theme. Will Chynna self-destruct in two minutes? Unfortunately, the answer is "yes."
