First Dibs: Chris Brown Confirms Split From Rihanna

Lauryn Hill drops thousands of dollars in back taxes, Justin Bieber’s Dubai show takes a surprising turn, and Mariah Carey makes “beautiful” music with Miguel.

  • Well, it looks like Ri-Ri and Breezy have called it quits … again (for now). During an interview for an Australian radio show, Chris Brown implied that he and Rihanna had “different wants and needs,” and that he’s too young to be worried about locking down a relationship. [Vibe]
  • Ahead of sentencing in her tax evasion case, Lauryn Hill has paid her debt to the feds. Her lawyer confirmed that she paid back taxes and restitution, totaling more than $900,000. [Rolling Stone]
  • An overzealous Belieber ran onstage during a Justin Bieber show in Dubai on Sunday, which set off a scuffle with one of Bieber’s security guards. The skirmish was short-lived, but ended with Bieber’s piano being knocked off its platform. [MTV]
  • Mariah Carey’s new single, “Beautiful,” is already tugging heartstrings everywhere. Miguel’s sultry vocals balance out the track, and fans can see the video premiere on American Idol on May 8. [Spin]
