Rihanna and Chris Brown are back to their old shenanigans of vacationing in bikinis and bathing suits while still denying that they are a couple. Whatever. No one really cares what they are, as long as they keep having fun riding banana boats and jet skis in front of photographers.
Pics of the couple enjoying life – and their millions – in Barbados are below.

We are finally going to be privy to all of Lynne Spears‘ mediocre inner thoughts about her daughters Britney and Jamie-Lynn, thanks to her new book, Through The Storm. We wish she had titled it Through the Natty, Plastic Weave On My Daughter’s Shaved Head, but some editor probably shot that one down. The book promises to cover all the juicy highlights from The Year (or two) That Britney Went Bat-Sh*t Crazy, such as:
- “Lynne’s backseat role in Britney’s path to fame and how it forever changed their family
- Her regret in abdicating parental authority to managers, agents, and record companies
- The challenges that shaped Lynne and Jamie’s marriage and how that affected Bryan, Britney, and Jamie Lynn
- Her response to Jamie Lynn’s pregnancy
- The startling events that led to Britney’s meltdown and Lynne’s showdown with manager Sam Lufti
- How faith, family, and friendships have been her harbor in the storm of paparazzi, tabloid scribblers, and gossip hounds”
Kanye West is a blogger, a fashion designer and now a f*cking puppet, apparently. His new video for “Champion” features a cloth Kanye competing against human runners in some sort of Olympic-like competition. In other words, it’s kinda creepy, and Kanye’s got nothing on the Muppets. [Via MoneyCashHos]
Far be it from me to suggest a young women shouldn’t talk publicly about her breasts, but when it comes to issues sexy (piercing!) and otherwise (cancer), it’s important to be informed. “Me & U” singer Cassie recently confessed that before being tested for “the cancer gene,” she worried how her mother, a breast cancer survivor, would feel about her nipple piercings. But since she doesn’t have the gene, she now feels comfortable celebrating the “positive energy” she gets from constant impalement. According to Dr. Judith Reichman, poor piercing can cause plenty of trouble (nerve damage, hematoma, even Hepatitis and HIV infection), but there is no reason to believe that piercing increases a risk of breast cancer. In fact, piercings can cause false cancer scares if the skin hardens around the intruding metal. Having a breast cancer gene (which in no way guarantees that one will suffer from breast cancer—ask the NCI) shouldn’t keep one from experiencing the same positive energy Cassie does now. Telling your mom is another issue. [ContactMusic]

Britney Spears, VMA host Russell Brand, and a 900-pound “elephant in the room” filmed a promo for the MTV awards show, creating further buzz that the pop star will return this year in an attempt to redeem herself after last year’s lackluster performance. In the promo, Russell suggests there is sexual tension between them, but Britney shrugs, “I didn’t feel any tension.”
Britney’s “Piece of Me” has been nominated this year for two “Moonmen” in the Best Female and Best Pop Video categories, but her attendance has not been confirmed.
“Everyone deserves a second or third chance, right?” MTV president Van Toffler teased in June.
Despite never actually winning a Moonman, Britney’s liplock with Madonna and dazed performance have gone down in television history. Tune in to the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 7 at 9PM ET. [Photo:Getty Images]
Rumors are swirling around the internet that Lil Wayne‘s daughter, Reginae Carter, was killed in a car accident late in the evening of August 10th. Very few details are known, and Wayne’s camp has yet to confirm the incident. Reginae, 8, is the child of Wayne and his ex-wife, high school sweetheart Antonia Johnson. Wayne was just 16 when Reginae was born. Though conflicting reports are being reported, we’re sincerely hoping this is just a rumor. [Photo: Getty Images]
The King Of Comedy, Bernie Mac, died yesterday — and the King of Soul died today. Isaac Hayes, the Grammy-winning soul legend who exuded sex with his incredibly deep baritone voice, was best known for writing the theme song to the 1971 blaxploitation flick Shaft. “Theme From Shaft” won an Academy Award for best original theme song. More recently, Hayes provided the voice for Chef on South Park.
Hayes’s wife, Adjowa, found him collapsed near a still-running treadmill at his home in a Memphis suburb. Attempts to revive him by paramedics were unsuccessful. The cause of death is not known. On an eerie note: Isaac Hayes and Bernie Mac will star together posthumously in Soulmen, a movie with a November 14 release date. [Photo: Getty Images]
After the jump, watch Hayes sing “Theme From Shaft.”
