Rihanna & Jay-Z: Lovers Spat On-Stage?

by

We tried to ignore this one, but the web is still buzzing about the alleged tiff between Rihanna and her mentor, Jay-Z, at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. The whole thing appeared to go down right as the pair was heading on-stage to accept their award for their collaboration on “Umbrella.” After hugging it out in front of Beyonce (which fueled up those old fling rumors), Riri tried to drag Jay by the arm on-stage. He pulled away, she busted out some attitude, and they then awkwardly accepted their statue with the Jigga translating Rihanna’s speech (see pic above). Check out the video firsthand to see how it all went down. Photos of the two taken later in the night reveal two things – Rihanna was getting frisky with alleged boy toy Chris Brown, and she was lookin’ pretty pissed off at Jay.

So just what is going on here? From what we can gather:
- Jay-Z is pissed at RiRi for dragging him onstage like a manchild.
- Rihanna’s angry that Jay treated her like an idiot during her acceptance speech.
- Beyonce’s steamed that her man embraced his 19-year old prodigy right in front of her.
- The internet is desperate for their to be a sh*tload of drama between these three.

Meanwhile, Chris Brown is furious that we aren’t paying him and his smile more attention! Seriously guys – everyone needs to just kiss kiss and make up. Er, except Rihanna and Jay-Z. They can just shake hands.

Check after the jump for the full interview, but here are a few hints in the meantime: no hitting on 20-year-olds, crunchy stuff, and a few surprise covers thrown into the band’s incendiary live show.

Exclusive Interview: Making Babies With Janet Jackson

by

Janet Jackson’s forthcoming album Discipline (out Feb. 26) is full of thumping club tracks, but since Valentine’s Day is upon us, we thought we’d slow it down for our exclusive chat with the diva. Below, we grill Janet on the slow and sexy jams (or, as they’re often referred to, baby-making songs) of her career, from the song that created the mold (“Funny How Time Flies (When You’re Having Fun)” from 1986′s Control), to the steamy title track of her new album. Nothing was off limits, both musically (album cuts, b-sides and chart smashes are all covered) and topically (since Janet’s baby-making songs tend to cover the subject of, well, making babies rather thoroughly). Things start to heat up down below…

Britney Teaches Tots How to Grind

by

We’re not quite sure how this happened or who allowed it, but Britney Spears, fully decked out in fishnets, boots and not much else, led a group of little kids in an hour-long dance class yesterday at Millenium Dance Complex. Brit was there to rehearse moves for her upcoming music video, but somehow wound up teaching the tots, ages 4-7, moves to old school Madonna songs. But don’t go thinking she was having them hump the floor! The director of the dance complex reveals that she, “even played age-appropriate games in a circle, pretending to be a choo-choo train. Britney was just amazing with the kids and everyone ended up having a blast. At the end of the hour class, all the kids hugged Britney and she seemed very happy.”

We can’t help but let our heart strings be tugged a little. It’s the first time in months that Britney’s done something sweet (though still a little weird), and surely she’s missing her own sons. The starlet had so much fun teaching the kids that she may even turn the class into a weekly gig – which would be the most consistent thing she’s done in years. If this is true, we totally approve of parents forcing dance classes on their kids, just to bask in the Britney, er, glow. [Us/People]

Lindsay & Paris Battle For Timbaland’s Love

Well look what we have here! It’s the world’s dumbest – and most dysfunctional – love triangle! Poor Timbaland has found himself trapped between two dueling dimwits – Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. Both the girls are desperate to give their music “careers” another try, and the divas duked it out at the super-producer’s pre-Grammy party for his attention. Each was also horrifed that the other was in attendance, with Lindsay allegedly declaring, “What the hell is that b*tch doing here?” when she saw the heiress. Paris’ response? “F*ck off, you b*tch.”

Wow. Those words are gonna sound even more amazing when sung and put to music! A source reveals that both of the women “want to work with Timbaland to revive their faltering music careers,” and had seen this party as away to get him on their side. Lindsay already has Ne-Yo on board, which seems to signify that she’s serious about singing. Paris, on the other hand? She’s probably just trying to get closer to Justin Timberlake. [MSNBC]

Rock of Love: Rockstar Moments

by

In the past, we’ve seen our Rock of Love hero Bret Michaels in all sorts of sticky situations. Primarily, these involve nudity. For instance, there was the time he almost shut down the Forty Deuce. Then there was the time he was given a pole-dance by his potential paramours. This time, Bret’s the recipient of some witty dialogue, which has something to do with keeping his pipes clean. There’s some double entendre going on there. Is it rock star-worthy? We don’t know. But it’s definitely Bret.
