Rihanna Rih-emphasized what she has been saying for months about beau Chris Brown. “We are not dating,” the “Umbrella” singer told the ladies of The View in Las Vegas on Monday.
“He?s an amazing person, but we are not dating. We’re very close friends though. Very, very close,” she said.
Let’s see what these close “friends” have been up to lately besides romantic dates at KFC in our gallery of Rihanna and Chris just hanging as “pals”?
While the rest of the world was paying attention to who was winning what at the MTV Movie Awards, a few of us were drooling over our favorite celebs that looked good enough to bed. Check out our picks for the 10 Most F*ckable Celebs at last night’s show – and tell us, were you as turned on by Audrina’s new bangs as we were?
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.
We are desperate for the day that Chris Brown comes out to the public about his alleged relationship with his much-older manager. We’ve been following this rumored love affair for months, and it seems to be the worst kept secret in the music biz. Chris was spotted sitting right next to his glammed-up lady-friend at the Grammy Awards last night, smiling up a storm. But that school boy look (complete with a back pack?!) doesn’t fool us for a second, you dirty dog. Chris has been linked to Rihanna recently, but we think that’s just a front to hide the real romance that’s going down. After all, you didn’t see him getting close with the pop starlet during the awards ceremony, but maybe he was just embarrassed by her outfit choices. You tell us – which woman do you think Chris is REALLY dating?
Chris Brown Sexin’ Up his Manager?
Hey Chris Brown, what do you think you’re doing dating Rihanna? Sure, she’s hot and all, but we thought you were totally into your much-older manager! Have you forgotten all about that sexy, totally inappropriate love affair? We loved the X-Rated you! But now you’ve been spotted taking your crush Rihanna on a cutesy date to a New Jersey restaurant after a recent performance. It’s just so predticable, so tame, so G-Rated. At least spice it up by dating someone a little less wholesome. Britney Spears is single, older and totally f*ckin’ crazy! Or what about starting up a long-distance love affair with Foxy Brown while she’s in jail? That’s the Chris Brown we want to know.
We asked you to name the hottest human being of 2007 and we have sampled more than half of your 800 responses. Our tally shows Jes narrowly edging out New York to become the year’s hottest, finest, cutest, sexiest person. Rock of Love winner Jes and our H.B.I.C. reality diva New York had approximately 150 votes each. But New York attracted dozens of harshly negative comments, and so we’ve crowned Jes our first-ever Hottie of the Year! Here is the list of candidates (in order of hotness, according to you) with some of your positive and negative comments.
“Jes all the way! She is so hot I?d consider switching teams!”
“She’s ugly and has rat nest hair.”
2. New York
“New York … the other girls are boring.”
“Are you kiding me New York is hot dang she is smokin hot and that’s real.”
“Looks like somebody hit her in the face with a shovel and just wouldn?t quit.”
“New York looks like a sick horse.”
“New York looks like a horse. Better yet, a horse crossed with a dog.”
“I would have picked NY if we were voting on best transvestite of the year but we?re not so I pick Kim!”
3. Kim Kardashian
“Kim is sexy as hell. No one above could compete with her … just look her body.”
“Armenians are the most beautiful people she’s freakin fine.”
“Kim sounds like she’s on helium.”
4. Chris Brown
“Boy u so sexy if u were a pie i would eat you.”
None, at least that we can find.
5. Vanessa Hudgens
“I think Vanessa is the hottest. She is so adorable and I think she has a head on her shoulders – although it is said that there are naked pic of her. Who doesn’t make mistakes?”
“Vanessa is so ugly and it looks like Fidel Castro is hiding down there.”

At last night’s Us Weekly Hot Hollywood 2007 party, all the adorable young stars were out putting their best-dressed foot forward – everyone except Hills darling Lauren Conrad. The starlet – who recently launched her own fashion line – looked less like an expert designer and more like she landed in a pile of candy corn and glitter. It’s not that we’re on Team Heidi or anything, but we definitely bat for Team Have a Little Style.
Check out Lauren’s get-up and ogle at other stars’ outfits below.

50 Cent has his eyes on the future and he thinks R&B youngins Ciara and Chris Brown will lead us there. That probably means we all have to start taking dance lessons, right? If you can’t 1-2 step or grab your crotch like Michael Jackson, your ass will be left behind. Anyway, 50 says:
“They came at me about doing [“Can’t Leave ‘Em Alone” with Ciara] and I heard the joint. It was before her album came out and I was thinking that she?s the future of R&B. People love Beyonc?, but look at how long she?s been around! I think that she?s dope, though. But I?m about the future of the business and her [Ciara] and Chris Brown are just that. They?re going to be the best things out in a lil? bit. But as far as what people think between me and her, man…[laughs], the video did that.“
This is mostly notable because 50 Cent is actually saying something nice about someone else (two someones, even!). I thought there was a bullet lodged in the section of his brain responsible for compliments. He’s always so full of surprises! [HipHopDX.com]
