If there’s any truth to: “birds of a feather flock together,” then Rihanna is an immature, tactless, insecure piece of Bajan poultry.
Last evening, Rihanna’s best friend and “assistant” Melissa Forde shared a photo on Instagram with the caption, “#BodyParty (bathroom acapella version) #London.” In the photo, Rihanna, Melissa and another girl (who is being identified as “Leandra” by a few commenters) are chuckling while watching something on a phone. Exactly what they’re watching is unknown, but it’s safe to assume that it’s the video of Ciara singing “Body Pary” in the bathroom in Paris.
Who or what prompted Melissa to publish something so childish is pure speculation, but Ciara, being the mature woman of the three, responded classily. Read More
Chris Brown raps about b*tches gone off that Molly and lame hos bursting it open to pay their rent on “Let the Blunt Go,” a League of Starz-produced track included on a mixtape hosted by that DJ Nicki Minaj told to simmer months ago.

I know, the headline is borderline blasphemous. “How dare he speak badly about a music legend!? Especially at the expense of an artist that stole one of his songs!” Well, unlike Elton John, who gave two great performances throughout music’s biggest night, it’s time for Sting to enjoy the performers from the comfort of his seat.
Bruno Mars and his unrivaled band launched the Grammys’ tribute to Bob Marley with the infectious “Locked Out of Heaven.” Then Sting came out and, as Keyshia Cole would say, f**ked up the groove! He muttered the words in an unfamiliar tongue. I should be thankful for this because it’s quite disturbing to hear a 61-year-old man chant: “your sex takes me to paradise!” Read More

Paparazzi ambushed Beyoncé while she was making a low-key arrival to rehearsals for her Super Bowl half-time show. Instead of asking her about her set list or something, they asked: “Do you plan on lip-syncing at the Super Bowl?” She chortled and kept it moving. Read More
