First Dibs: Why Won’t DMX Beat Up George Zimmerman?

Were Drake and Rihanna caught getting cozy this weekend? Did Mariah Carey debut a new single at the taping of the BET Honors 2014? And MTV News looks back at Kanye West’s first interviews on the 10 year anniversary of College Dropout

  • DMX will not be beating George Zimmerman to a pulp on live television after all. The celebrity boxing match’s promoter has canceled the event and DMX’s spokesman has clarified that the rapper never agreed to the match at all. [LA Times]
  • Drake and Rihanna were spotted partying together at Hooray Henry’s in Los Angeles on Friday night. The sexy singers cozied up to each other in a private booth, and although they left separately, shared a cab. [Eonline]
  • Mariah Carey debuted a new single, “You’re Mine,” at last night’s taping of this year’s BET Honors. The diva also showed some skin in a scandalously low cut gown that would have made Jessica Rabbit blush. []
  • Today marks the 10 year anniversary of Kanye West’s College Dropout. Back in 2004, West sat down with MTV and told them the inspiration behind the album, how his beats were “adequate,” and how he got inspiration from watching MTV’s 100 Greatest Pop Songs Of All Time. [MTV News]
