Uh oh, Aretha Franklin is p*ssed off at the Grammys and Beyonc?, and now B’s dad is getting into the mix and firing back at Re! Seriously, these divas love to duel, no matter their age. Here’s the deal: after Beyonc? introduced Tina Turner as “the queen” during the awards show, Aretha – known as the Queen of Soul – got her granny panties all up in a twist. “I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyonc?,” she said. “However I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy.”
Um, okay. We have a feeling – if we may say so Ms. Franklin – that no one was trying to diss you, they were just trying to give Tina some much-deserved praise. Beyonc?’s dad agrees with us, and he weighed in yesterday. “Something this ridiculous ? it’s childish, it’s unprofessional. And it’s a sad day when egos get bruised because somebody used the word king, queen, prince or princess.”
So much for R-E-S-P-EC-T! Guess you gotta give it to get it, these days. Whose side are you on – your girl B’s or your Queen’s?
It’s Friday, which means it’s the perfect day to enjoy this video of a tiny baby holding a guitar and busting out The Beatles song “Hey Jude.” We have no idea how the kid, named Hero, has such a good grasp on the lyrics at such a young age, but it’s a pretty solid rendition coming from someone still in diapers. Most importantly, it’s straight up adorable. Enjoy.

The singer’s new film is getting bashed by critics. When is she gonna realize that movies just ain’t her thing? [NYDN]
Poor little Heidi from The Hills lost it when she discovered people on the internet were saying mean things about her budget music video for her song “Higher!” Has she just now discovered what the world wide web is all about? The wannabee singer claimed that she “started sobbing uncontrollably,” after discovering the disses, and cried herself to sleep. There is a very simple solution to all of this – don’t put garbage on the web. Stop posing for staged pictures on the beach in nothing but a string bikini. Don’t get “engaged” to your devil boyfriend on a reality TV show. Don’t make a PG-rated sex tape and stick it up on the internet. Easy!
Heidi claims the video was just a spur of the moment thing. “We did it in one take, maybe two, and it took us 20 minutes to film and cost us zero dollars,” she said. That right there is a sign to never show it to anyone, ever. Hopefully the plastic princess has learned her lesson and will find a way to make it big without big mistakes. After all, she’s “just a 21-year-old from a small town in Colorado trying to follow her dreams.”? [Us]
Now that Britney’s baby sister Jamie-Lynn is knocked up, sources are coming out and flinging some serious mud in the teen’s direction. We’ve watched enough Gossip Girl to know how vicious kids can be, but this stuff is downright dirty, which makes it that much more interesting. If these sources are telling the truth, Jamie-Lynn is already following in her sister’s dangerous footsteps. She’s got the partying and the promiscuity down, now all she needs is a couple of vag-flashes! Soon enough.
Accusation #1: Jamie-Lynn gets around
A source accuses J-L of getting busy with a few boys (in addition to her baby-daddy Casey Aldridge), saying, ?I know for a fact that Casey was not the first guy she slept with ? or the last. There were at least two others. I know that 110 percent.?
Accusation #2: She’s using her pregnancy as birth control
A different source allegedly spotted Jamie-Lynn trying to get with a guy (not her boyfriend Casey) with this pick-up line: “It’s cool; I’m pregnant. I can’t get pregnant again!?
Accusation #3: She took to the bottle to forget Britney
Even though she’s only 16, J-L is supposedly way beyond experimenting with booze. She’s drinking to forget about her family drama! ?Some people drink to have a good time,? revealed another underage spy. ?But she drank to get wrecked. She drank to get messed up and forget about her mother, her sister and all of that.? [MSNBC]

There’s one thing about February you can pretty much guarantee: when Valentines Day comes along the libido heads for the red zone. Appropriately, the conversation starts to tilt toward the nasty side of the street. All those sweet nothings are about something quite specific on 2/14, and they’ve got to do more with the boudoir than they do with a bouquet of flowers. We’re wondering if you know which tunes to play when you get upstairs, and we’re wondering if you can guess which lyrics of lust belong to which artists. Our new site can help you decipher the words to loads of songs. See if you can match all the dirty talk below to one of the singers pictured above. The answers are found after the jump. Click on the quote to see the full (sexy) song lyrics.
1. “If you’re liking what you’re tasting baby, let me know”
2. “Dive if you want to be a diver/wear a helmet with a light like an old gold miner”
3. “Don’t be ashamed of what you’ve got between those thighs, oh”
4. “For this body, so buttery brown and tantalizing/you would think I needed help.”
5. “You got me in a crazy position/if you’re on a mission, you’ve got my permission”
6. “I got a problem, I’m outta my mind over your body/women like you steal my control”
7. “Feel my rain come pourin’, soaking your lips’, baby…oooh”
8. “Your girl acting stank, then call me over/not on the bed, on the sofa/phone before you come, I need to shave my chocha.”
9. “You constantly seek me tonguing up and down on you/It’s time to pop your knees/it’s hot up in this peace”
10. “Maybe go to my place and kick just like Tae Bo/possibly bend you over, look back and watch me”
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.
