(Newser) – The media is moving on from "zombie apocalypse" to "Rihannapocalypse." The gossip rags are teeming with stories about the singer's rebellious ways, and Newser rounds up the juicy tidbits:

  • Sign No. 1 that she's nearing breakdown: The singer apparently spent yesterday shopping in SoHo ... wearing a strapless bra ... that was pretty darn see-through, reports the New York Post. (Click to see a photo.)

  • She now appears naked on a billboard in Times Square, but that's not the falling-apart part. The Daily Mail notes that the ad promotes her perfume Rebelle, and it's the second fashion ad to create buzz this week. The Sun apparently claimed Rihanna used a body double in a sexy Armani Jeans ad, leading the singer to tweet, "Ok @thesunnewspaper, this is the only way I could say this to you!!! F*** YOU." (Click to read the whole tweet, which gets nastier.)
  • She's hanging out with Chris Brown ... in the presence of her family. The Post reports that Brown watched a Miami Heat game with Rihanna's family over the weekend. The two later sat in separate booths at a Meatpacking District club; he sent her table two bottles of champagne. Still, the Post notes that they two have been careful to keep "a coy distance."
  • She has, horrors, been taking more vacations. A source tells the Post that her management and record label execs want her to buckle down, but instead Rihanna is having fun and "posting more on Twitter."
