Plenty of people have expressed their dislike with the fact that Rihanna appears to have gotten back together with Chris Brown and Jay-Z is one of them. According to the British paper The Sun, Jay-Z has taken on the big brother role now that Rihanna has made the decision to re-unite with Chris Brown, who in 2009 was charged with felony assault after RiRi claimed he beat and bit her during an argument the two were having.

Meek Mill may be a star — but the tardy “Tupac Back” rapper still needs to show some respect to those richer and more famous. The rapper held a top-secret listening party for his debut solo album, “Dreams and Nightmares,” in a legendary venue Wednesday night, but by the time he arrived, the guests with the most wattage — Jay-Z and Will Smith — were history.

Ideally, Sunday’s news that Nicki Minaj will join a new group of new judges for this season’s American Idol — along with Mariah Carey and country singer Keith Urban — might be the start of an improvement in the rocky relationship between hip-hop and reality television. Save reality satires like those produced by Ego Trip (The White Rapper Show and Miss Rap Supreme), hip-hop fans have endured a specific kind of exploitative, buffonish trash.

Snoop Dogg has rapped in songs where gay slurs have been tossed about. He’s even said them, part of a long list of rappers who have freely fuck and fag in a rhyme.For years, anti-gay epithets and sentiments in rap have largely been accepted, along with its frequent misogyny and violence, as part of the hip-hop culture — a culture that has been slow to change, even as gays enjoy more mainstream acceptance, particularly in entertainment.

Are Rihanna and Ashton Kutcher Hollywood’s newest couple? Maybe! Earlier this week, Rihanna was spotted by TMZ photographer’s arriving at the actor’s $10 million dollar bachelor pad right around midnight. But this was no quick visit. The Bajan beauty didn’t leave Kutcher’s place until after 4 am!
News of Rihanna and Ashton’s last night date broke right as rumors surfaced that Ri had once again dumped her on-again-off-again boyfriend Chris Brown. Despite the fact that Brown has a serious girlfriend, many believed he and Ri had been dating on the side. Until yesterday (March 22), that is, when Brown changed his Twitter profile picture to a Vincent van Gogh painting of a weeping man and cryptically posted the phrase “At Eternity’s Gate.”
So has Rihanna moved on to a new fling with Ashton? The pairing isn’t as random as it seems — these two have more in common than many realize! Both stars have been involved in past high-profile relationships that ended dramatically — Ri with Chris Brown and Ashton most recently with Demi Moore. The new friends also have intertwining social circles — Ashton is close friends with Diddy, who is pals with Rihanna’s mentor Jay-Z.
Do you think Ri and Ashton would make a good couple?
