Instagram and Twitter are the gift and curse to the lives of today’s celebrities. But in the case of Jermaine Dupri tweeting, “In the studio with @mariahcarey all night, 6am, sometimes it feels like, she’s the Rapper and I’m the Diva,” we’re happy they’ve chosen to share that moment with millions of followers. It’s only when the Twitter beefs followed by public statements made on the same forum that we wish the old mystique of artists would return.

Does Kanye West Really Not ‘F—’ With “Suit And Tie?”: The Best Quotes From His Latest Rant

A Kanye rant must be included in the ticket price for one of his live shows.

Justin Timberlake And Jay-Z Compete To See Who Is Cooler In “Suit & Tie” Video

With a lyric video that already went above and beyond expectations, thanks to floating musical notes and  a slow-moving pan across some well-toned arms well-fitted tuxedos, Justin Timberlake‘s latest offering ups the ante yet again. If coaxing Jay-Z into lending a verse to “Suit & Tie” didn’t make it clear, Mr. JT is very serious about this comeback, and even further proof lies in the official music video’s director: David (Freaking) Fincher, an Oscar nominee and the man who is partly responsible for your latest Netflix binge.

Justin Timberlake’s New Songs: Heavy On LoveSounds, Light On FutureSex

Justin Timberlake Performs in New Orleans

While Beyoncé captivated our attention and manipulated all our senses there was other music to be heard in New Orleans over the weekend. Justin Timberlake was the entertainment of choice at bajillionaire Mark Cuban’s DirecTV party on Saturday night, jumping ahead of his Grammy performance by seven days because no one in this world likes to stick to previously announced dates. JT took the stage as a featured solo performer for the first time in years–excluding pop-up performances at his BBQ joint–debuting “Suit & Tie” live (with Jay-Z!) and revealing two more new songs from his upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience. Yes, the flawless, throwback wardrobe helps, but at this point it seems hard for Justin Timberlake to convey any other than an effortless cool (MySpace projects included).

25 Things That May Or May Not Happen During Beyoncé’s Super Bowl Halftime Show

Beyonce Super Bowl Prop Bets

Yesterday’s press conference was further proof that Sunday is a Beyoncé concert with a little bit of athletic competition on the side. With all that’s been said–and repeatedly questioned–about her potential lip-synching last week, along with the halftime show’s ability to ignite minor scandals family-first viewers can’t seem to let go of (wave hello, M.I.A.!) we thought it was only to fair to compose of list of things that could happen during the big show–as well a handful of dream scenarios we desperately hope will come true, but are willing to settle for having play out in our twisted minds until the end of time.

We’re still a few days away from kickoff, so why not play along at home? Do your homework, keep track of this list during the show, and tell us if we are brilliant or simply outstanding for putting this all together come Monday morning.

Beyonce Has A Lot To Say About Her Miscarriage In HBO Documentary

You wanted Beyonce to open up more and she delivered. In her upcoming Life Is But a Dream HBO documentary the singer reveals how she felt after miscarrying what would have been her first child.

Bey’s hubby Jay-Z rapped about the miscarriage on “Glory” last year while his wife remained silent. For the documentary produced, directed and created by Bey she tells it all, or at least all of what she doesn’t mind the world knowing. “About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time and I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life,” she said in the documentary. “I picked out names. I envisioned what my child would look like…I was feeling very maternal. I flew back to New York to get my check up – and no heartbeat. Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat.” Read more…

The Top 9 Unexpected Endorsements From Music Stars

You know you’ve made it when the major dough starts rolling in for endorsement deals. Ask Beyonce about that $50 million Pepsi deal or 50 Cent‘s partnership with Vitamin Water (which netted him somewhere between $60-$100 milli). Taylor Swift didn’t let the ink dry before announcing, via video, her new venture with Diet Coke. It’s unclear how much Taylor made from this collaboration, but it’s T. Swift. She’s definitely not accepting chump change. In honor of Taylor being the newest addition to #teamCoke, we present the most unexpected and/or outrageous musician endorsements. Read more…
