Rihanna Makes Music with Maroon 5

Chart-topping fox Rihanna has teamed up with Maroon 5 on the band’s song “If I Never See Your Face Again” from last year’s It Won’t Be Soon Before Long. The above behind-the-scenes clip features a scantily clad Rihanna facing off against Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine for what the band’s label head described as a “battle of the sexes style duet.” Check back here next Tuesday to see the sparks fly between Maroon and Rihanna in the video.

There’s also a very interesting guest on the set of the video whose face is blurred out — can you guess who might have been visiting RiRi?

Fashion WTF: The 10 Worst Outfits at the Met Ball

anna_wintour_photog2.jpg

Yep, that photographer is pretty much right. These outfits are hilarious and every seems to think so, except the stars flaunting them! Every May here in NYC the tulips bloom, the sidewalk cafes fill with people, and celebs come out in droves to show of their atrocious fashion sense at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, which is thrown by Vogue editrix Anna Wintour each year (seen above in her haute couture moon suit). We’ve picked the top 10 worst wardrobe malfunctions from the event – which were supposed to reflect the night’s theme of “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy.” The only fantasy I have is of a giant sheet to cover these messes.

From left to right: Anna Wintour, Kimora Lee Simmons, Fergie, Amber Valletta, Mischa Barton, Posh Spice, Piper Perabo, Rachel Bilston, Tilda Swinton, Venus Williams.?

50 Cent’s Chain Snatched by Concert-Goer

Some dude in Angola has learned not to f*ck with 50 Cent, or his diamond chains! A concert-goer was arrested after he hopped up on stage at a concert in Angola and ripped Fiddy’s bling off his neck. The robbery stopped the show, and 50 allegedly hopped in the audience and punched the dude. Other reports reveal that the dude got away but was eventually arrested after his parents turned him in. Nice work, rents! The whole thing was caught on a camera phone, because that’s the way the world rolls these days. Check out the clip above to watch the whole thing go down. [via Bossip]

Will Brit Look This Good in Court Today?

britney-himym.jpg

Britney Jean Spears is set to actually make an appearance at a custody hearing today, and will reportedly ask the judge for more time with her sons Sean and Jayden. If she can remain mentally stable (no caffeine, girlfriend!) and brush her hair a bit, we think the judge should rule in her favor! Brit may be still be a bit crazy, but she’s currently clocking in low on the train wreck scale – a big improvement from her disastrous days earlier this year! We’ll be rooting for her – and for the stylist who does Brit’s hair, make up and clothes on the set of How I Met Your Mother(pic above). We hope Brit hires you for everyday help! [PopCrunch]

Kanye Blogs His Many Meltdowns

kanye.jpg

The great thing about Kanye West is that he’s either severely hot or cold about something. Lukewarm just ain’t his thing! So it was no surprise that the man-diva got a little pissed when Entertainment Weekly grade his recent tour a B+ – a grade I would? have killed for in grade school/high school/college/life. Kanye went for the mag’s jugular on his blog, writing, “Ya’ll rated my album sh*tty and now ya’ll come to the show and give it a B+. What’s a B+ mean? I’m an extremist. It’s either pass or fail! A+ or F-! You know what, f*ck you and the whole f*cking staff!!!”

He then also called them “f*cking trash.” Damn. I rate that rant a A+! Later he calmed down a bit in a post about his Houston show that went awry. “Unfortunately?for certain media outlets, you will never be able 2 ‘Michael?Jackson’ me,” he wrote. “That means 2 make it seem like everything I do is so weird or out of place… they always try 2 make it seem like everything is about my ego! That joke is getting old.”

It is? Cuz we’re still laughing.

R. Kelly’s Kiddie Porn Trial is X-Rated

rkelly.jpg

Crooner R. Kelly is trapped in the courthouse, stuck in the middle of a heated child porn trial revolving around a video of the singer having a three-way with an underaged girl. A new witness is set to testify against Kelly, and is claiming that not only can she identify the young woman in the vid (who appears to be 13 or 14 and whose identity has been disputed in court), but that she too engaged in group sex with R. Kelly when she was a young teenager too! For the record, R. Kelly is 41 years old. Yes, this might just be the grossest thing ever. If only R had just stuck his key in an older ignition, this mess could have been avoided. Beep. [Chicago Sun-Times]

Brit Initiates Jamie-Lynn Into Baby Mama Club

britneyjl.jpgBritney Spears left the safety of Malibu to head to her hometown of Kentwood, LA for her sister’s bridal shower and guess what, the party was apparently “normal!” This not only the first time Brit’s been back to Kentwood in over a year, but it’s also the first time she’s been described as normal in ages. All in all this trip was a huge success! A guest in attendance said that, “Jamie Lynn opened every gift. We all sat in a circle and she opened gifts and thanked every person. It was just a good old-fashioned baby shower.”

B kept it so real in honor of her lil sis, that she got all dolled up in a dress to smoke on the porch and then headed back home to Cali in a sexy get-up of tiny pink shorts and white wedge flip flops. The singer really embodies the greatest joy of motherhood – dressing trashing. Jamie-Lynn has so much to look forward too! [People]

Madonna Ties One On With Timberlake

madgejt

If you spotted Madonna yesterday, you were probably surprised to find her looking a little less energetic than usual. In an uncharacteristic move for the work-out-aholic and mother of three, Madge went out after her triumphant Roseland show and “tied one on” with her evening co-star, Justin Timberlake. “We had to celebrate,” a groggy Madonna told Ryan Seacrest when she called into his morning show. “[We] decided we both work too hard and have to have fun.” Drinks with Justin Timberlake sounds like fun to us. The star reportedly sipped on a martini at her after party at New York’s The Box, then had a shot of tequila and a lemon drop.
