First Dibs: How Has Beyonce Once Again Silenced Her Haters?

Shakira gets slammed by a politician, Selena Gomez may have skipped out on most of her planned stay in rehab, and Miley Cyrus lives the “High” life during Unplugged.

  • When Beyonce surprisingly dropped her self-titled album in December, it was a feast fans pretty much had to devour at once. Industry watchers weren’t sure if Bey could score a hit single among the crop of songs, but now those doubters have been proven wrong. “Drunk In Love” has reached No. 2 on the Billboard charts, giving us yet another reason to call Bey the queen.

  • A Colombian politician is taking shots at one of his country’s biggest stars. Shakira has caught flack for her steamy video with Rihanna for the single, “Can’t Remember To Forget You.” Did we just find the one guy who doesn’t want to see those two gyrate with each other? [The Hollywood Gossip]
  • We all recently found out that Selena Gomez secretly checked into rehab earlier this year, but now it appears that she ducked out early from the facility. The singer was supposed to complete 45 days of treatment, but took off after two weeks to head to the Sundance Film Festival. [TMZ]
  • In an unaired clip from Miley Cyrus’ Unplugged special, we get to see the pop star cover the Arctic Monkeys “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High.” Why do we feel like Miley knows that experience firsthand? [MTV News]
