Last Lap: What’s The Real Reason Shakira Was Grinding On Rihanna?

Lea Michele officially becomes a pop star with an appearance on Big Morning Buzz Live, Aretha Franklin finds out the president has a unique sense of “Respect,” and Ed Sheeran takes a page from Taylor Swift’s book.

  • We all saw Shakira and Rihanna get extremely close in the Latin singer’s video for “Can’t Remember To Forget You.” And apparently, Shakira’s boyfriend might have something to do with it. The Colombian star says her guy doesn’t want her rubbing up on other dudes in her videos — so she has no choice but to unleash her sex appeal on the ladies. [PopSugar]
  • With Lea Michele balancing her pop career along with her TV role on Glee, we definitely appreciate that she took time to stop by Big Morning Buzz Live! Watch her perform “Cannonball” in the clip below.
  • While introducing Aretha Franklin at a White House event, President Barack Obama flubbed a line from the singer’s signature song. Come on, Barack, you’re never going to get any “R-S-P-E-C-T” from the Queen Of Soul that way! [Perez Hilton]
  • Whoa, which of Ed Sheeran’s exes made him drop F-bombs in one of his songs? Well, as we’re sure Taylor Swift has told him, music is a great way to release all those pent up emotions! [MTV News]
