Rumor Alert: Diddy And J. Lo Are Back Together
“We’d be thrilled if J.Lo kicked Marc Anthony to the curb to reunite with Puff, and we suspect he’d be into it too,” Kate Spencer wrote last month for our sister site The Fab Life, ranking the duo #7 on the site’s list of “35 Celebrity Couples We Wish Would Get Back Together” (McAdams/Gosling was #1, so as far as we’re concerned, that list was extremely scientific.) Now that Lopez has broken ties with Marc Anthony, another of our sister sites, BET.com, is citing unnamed sources claiming that Diddy and Jennifer Lopez are in fact dating again. Our desire to witness the reunion of Fly Girl #1 and the original Bad Boy is currently slightly outweighed by our skepticism, but we’re actively hoping for more evidence. [BET]

Patrick “j.Que” Smith, who wrote Beyoncé‘s single with Babyface, posted the original mix to his Tumblr. He writes: “The drums, from ‘The Show,’ are what made me write to this song in the first place!” (Confidential to Billboard, from whom we got this link: Smith was talking about Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick, not Lenka.) [The Super Random]

Kaskade Fans Riot After Being Barred From Electric Daisy Carnival Documentary Premiere’s Invitation-Only Post-Party
The DJ tweeted at the time, “EVERYONE NEEDS TO GO HOME NOW! I DON’T WANT THIS TO REFLECT BADLY ON EDM OR WHAT WE ARE ABOUT. BE RESPECTFUL AND CHILL OUT!!!” One hundred cops in riot gear, three arrests, and plenty of smashed windows and vandalized cars later, it’s clear not enough people were paying attention to Kaskade.
