Beyonce’s A Beach Bum


We’re digging on Beyonce‘s casual, California girl look here, seen as she frolicks on the beach in Monaco while on a break from concert gigs this week. Perhaps she calls this alter-ego Sasha Relaxed? [Photo: Splash News Online]

Rihanna Disses Chris Brown In New Song

Chris Brown Rihanna

Rihanna may not have spoken out in public about her split from alleged abuser Chris Brown, but she’s got a mouthful to say in her new song. Kanye West posted the demo, “Silly Boy,” on his blog this week, in which RiRi bashes her ex with the help of Lady GaGa. She sings:

“I said I’m not coming back. You fooled me once but you can’t have that ego turning. Just too bad for you, that when you had me. Didn’t know what to do, she’s over you. Cause you had a good girl, good girl, girl. That’s a keeper. You had a good girl, good girl but didn’t know how to treat her. So silly boy get out my face. Why do you like the way regrets taste?”

Ouch. You can listen – and download – the super-catchy song in its entirety on Kanye’s blog – click here for the goods or listen to the song below. It can’t be a coincidence that he decided to drop this track right after naked pics of the songbird leaked on the web. We know where Kanye’s loyalty lies – and now, so does Chris Brown.  [Photo: GettyImages]

Tila Tequila: “My Boyfriend Is Ray J”


Tila Tequila is a master at generating buzz, and we can’t help but wonder if her latest claim is just that – an attempt at gaining a wee bit more publicity. The MySpace celebrity took to her personal blog this morning to declare love for her new boyfriend – VH1 reality star Ray J. Just last week, he completed his quest for love on the reunion episode of his hit show, For The Love Of Ray J. Tila herself is no newcomer to the weird world of reality dating – she was the star of MTV’s skank-fest A Shot At Love.

Tila announced the coupling on her site, writing: “My baby is Ray J…..and no man has made me feel so loved and so happy in such a long time.  We really do love each other and I am so happy to have FINALLY met someone who treats me with respect and love.  He is so sweet to me and makes me melt everytime I see him…….I love my baby……so there you have it! Tila Tequila is officially dating Ray J!!!!!! I think we make the cutest couple….dont you?????”

She included a sexy video she shot for her new man (watch it below), and then went on to plug both their Twitter accounts, on which they both very recently tweeted to each other lovingly. While we’re just thrilled the two cheeseballs have found love, the whole thing reeks of a publicity stunt conceived by a pair of reality stars who want to keep their names in the media. What do you think - is this relationship the real deal, or are Tila and Ray J is TiJay just playing us for publicity?

Check out pics of the sexy stars in action below!

Mimi And Nick Celebrate One Crazy Year Together

Mariah Carey

We can’t quite believe a year has flown by since Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon shocked the world by getting married after only dating for a short while. We thought they’d be over in six weeks, but the pair has pleasantly surprised us with their bizarre love for each other, which was apparent at their one-year anniversary bash last night.

The couple gathered family and friends in the VIP section at the Moon nightclub in Las Vegas to toast their love. They chowed down on a four-foot cake as Nick deejayed and presented a surprise video to Mariah, featuring moments from their life together that were caught on tape. The singer wept during the presentation, and declared, “I have the best man in the whole wide world.”

Nick also professed his love for his bride, telling the crowd, “This is the most amazing person in the world. I dedicate my life to her daily, and together this union is gonna last forever. She is my rock.”

Congrats, you wacky lovebirds! Let’s see if you make it to anniversary #2.  [People. Photo: Splash News Online]

Beyonce’s Bad Voice – We Got Punk’d!


Precious Lady B was the butt of a serious Internet joke this week, when the entire world (oops – our bad!) was fooled into thinking she secretly had a terrible voice. Turns out, the soundboard recording was fake, created by a 26-year-old Beyonce fan and spread by millions on the web after it was played on the Howard Stern Show on Tuesday.

“I don’t even listen to Howard Stern,” revealed creator  Matthew Zeghibe. “I was just trying to make a point. I wanted to show people how easy it is to manipulate someone’s voice. If I can do it with a clip I pulled off of TV, imagine what they are doing on records and during live performances. The entire industry has been so manipulated, because there’s such an emphasis on perfection, so when something like this happens, it causes such a stir.”

There you have it – that fake recording was created not to ruin the celebrated songbird, but to reveal the music industry as a fraud. Still, Beyonce’s not amused, and she called the whole mess “completely ridiculous.” Lucky for all of us, so is her awesome – and very real – talent.  [Photo: WireImage]

Rihanna: Sipping Booze And Partying With Ballers


Rihanna isn’t wasting any time dwelling on her break-up with alleged abuser Chris Brown. The singer was spotted boogying at Los Angeles club myhouse, celebrated Clippers’ star Baron Davis‘ 30th birthday. The beauty from Barbados got down in an 80s-inspired outfit, guzzled Grey Goose all night, and – gasp! – flirted with the various hunky basketball stars lurking around her.

The songbird also reportedly cheered along with the crowd when the DJ announced that he should “get his ass kicked.” RiRi knows the deal – the only thing more liberating than slamming on an ex is having someone else do it for you.  [Photo: WireImage]

Chris Brown Moves On – But With Who?


There are a couple reports out this morning that allege that Chris Brown has taken up with a new lady friend. As we all know, he’s currently facing charges stemming from an alleged violent outburst involving ex-love, Rihanna.

The NY Daily News insists that Brown is busying himself with a former flame named Erica Jackson, a student at Virginia’s Mary Washington University. A source says that, “They dated back in the day and reconnected a few weeks ago when Chris was in town. They’ve been spending a lot of time together, but things only really heated up over the last two weeks.”

But according to the Examiner.com, Chris has been cozying up to Natalie Mejia from the pop group Girlicious, and the site says that the two were spotted at a tattoo parlor on Saturday. Interestingly enough, the Daily News also says he visited a tat joint –  but with Erica by his side. Is the singer juggling two ladies, or are the tabs’ stories just screwy?  [Photo: GettyImages]


Chris Brown Pleads Not Guilty, Rihanna’s Dad Mad

Chris Brown appeared in court yesterday and pleaded not guilty to two charges of assaulting and threatening Rihanna. He said he was “sorry and saddened” by the incident and is seeking counseling – and faces five years in the slammer if found guilty. Rihanna’s lawyer confirmed that the superstar would testify if called to the witness box. Chris is due back in court in three weeks time.

However, this plea has enraged Rihanna’s dad, Ronald Fenty, who said the shamed singer needed to quit being “in denial” about the attack. “So what happened? Somebody else did this to Rihanna then?” Fenty told Usmagazine.com. “I just would like to see justice go in the right direction.”

Beyonce Buys Her Hubby’s Clothes


Ultra-supportive wife Beyonce Knowles went shopping for some Rocawear clothing today in NYC. Seeing as that’s her husband Jay-Z‘s line she probably could have scored some freebies. But she’s not that kinda wife ya’ll!

We’re kinda digging her casual lumberjack look in this pic. The suspenders somehow work when she keeps things simple.  Beyonce’s not known for dressing down, but she should consider making a style change. Girl’s working it!  [Photo: Splash News Online]
