Rihanna Sizzles In New Pics, Justin Bieber Quits Music, Lil’ Kim Looks Tore Up & Worn Down During Concert?

Worked Up Wednesday. It’s a day to keep things moving and working, so why not get it started with Rihanna sizzling in new steamy photos? Speaking of people who like to take off their shirts, is Justin Bieber retiring before turning 20? Someone who could probably really retire might be Lil’ Kim after a recent concert outing? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. She’s Got It

It’s time to stop hating on Rihanna and admit she’s one of the most interesting and attractive people to look at. She can wear nothing or something and it will likely look ten times better than the average person rocking it. Her new photos from fashion company Balmain only strengthens that point. RumorFix is on it:

Rihanna is making her debut as the new face of Paris fashion house Balmain. The Diamonds singer showed off three new advertisements for their Spring 2014 line via her Twitter account Tuesday. RiRi made the announcement by proudly stating “guess who’s the new BALMAIN Woman???!!!!!!!” We’re so used to seeing RiRi rocking bikinis it can be easy to forget how gorgeous she is in high fashion. (RumorFix)

Can you ever go wrong when Rihanna is the face of your company? She’s been on pretty good behavior as of late, is there a chance this company is going to keep RiRi around for the long haul? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Say Good-Bye

Is Justin Bieber leaving the music industry? He’s been a certified bad boy for quite a while now but is hanging up the microphone for good the best choice? We’ve always heard about artists taking breaks but to decide on retirement before hitting 20? TMZ has this covered:

Justin Bieber is done with show biz … so he says — thing is, we don’t believe him.

Justin was at Power 106 in L.A. today, and said after his next album drops he’s retiring. The album comes out next week.

We talked to people in Bieber’s camp and they said he was joking. As one source put it, “The kid’s got ambition.”

Since Justin appeared at The Laugh Factory last Friday, apparently he thinks he’s on a comedy roll.

He already needs new material. (TMZ)

Whew. Close call? As much as people might want him to retire, he hasn’t shown off his full-blown rapping skills just yet, so we’ll have to see if that’s going to come up in the near future. If and when he retires, what will Bieber do? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Lights Out

Is Lil’ Kim reaching the end of her career? As much as people want to rally support for her, it might be time for the Queen Bee to start taking those executive roles and letting the younger generations come around for her throne. She’s put up a strong fight and is an icon for female rappers, but has she neared the end? Bossip has the clip:

Queen Butterball tried to set-off The Jumpoff, but ended up needing some time off. (Bossip)

It is the winter time, could Lil’ Kim have been a little under the weather? She doesn’t look like performing is too much of a hassle for her, did this just happen to be one of those off nights? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

    This is easy Rihanna is a joint a bad slutty I’d fuck the first night joint. Justin Beiber is trash and his moment of shine is coming to a much welcomed end. Lil Kim really needs to stop this shenanigans immediately and stop making a mockery of herself. Shameful that someone who once held an strong position in rap history is constantly losing like this.
