Riff Raff’s Career Goals
Rapper Riff Raff wants to be known for more than just being Katy Perry’s MTV Video Music Awards date. And he’s set some admirable lofty goals for himself: to be in the movies and have a #1 hit on the Billboard charts. The latter is a more likely possibility, because he recently released a single called “Tip Toe Wing In My Jawdinz,” and he wants James Franco to star in the music video. I guess Riff’s not mad at him anymore?
Big News From Our Very Own Sway Calloway!

No word yet on whether or not Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen want to be part of this.
