The country is going insane right now as the Mega Millions lottery has reached a record-breaking $640 million. We thought we’d celebrate (before making another lottery ticket run) with 11 pop songs about being filthy, stinkin’ rich that had a few lucky numbers of their own, so to speak, when they hit big on Billboard Hot 100 chart. Jump below to sample the tunes you’ll be having your chauffeur blast through your stretch limo when you hit the jackpot. More »
Last night the Top 10 touring American Idol contestants took on Billy Joel’s all-American songbook. (Sadly, “We Didn’t Start The Fire” wasn’t included.) And who better to mentor the singers during Billy Joel week than … Diddy? (JLo apparently has a thing for working with exes on reality competition shows.) Tommy Hilfiger was also in tow as the style guru, so it was a blown-out episode. Read on to find out who blew up the competition. More »
Today marks the 15-year anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.’s untimely death, and a decade and a half later his music continues to hypnotize. (Even Britney Spears referenced him on last year’s “Drop Dead Beautiful.”) On March 9, 1997, at age 24, Biggie (real name: Christopher George Latore Wallace) was gunned down in Los Angeles in a drive-by shooting, his killer never apprehended. But the Grammy-nominated “Hypnotize” surged in popularity and hit #1 on the charts, as did his appropriately-titled posthumous album Life After Death. Recall one of the greatest hip hop singles of all time by watching the action-packed video (featuring helicopters, mermaids, and a car chase) below. More »
We’re not sure exactly what’s been going down after hours at Paris fashion week, but it sure sounds fun (and delicious!). The most killingest pop star on the planet got familiar with bad boy Diddy at Paris fashion week, sitting side-by-side at the Kenzo Ready-To-Wear Fall/Winter 2012 show. However, it seems the real fun took place after hours, judging by Robyn and Diddy’s tweets. The somewhat unlikely duo posted an intentionally-upside-down photo of themselves, along with a pic of them eating authentic French crepes. Yum! See more below. More »

:: Rihanna is on the short list to play the late, great Whitney Houston in a possible upcoming biopic (so soon? jeez), even though her first movie Battleship has yet to be released (thus we have no idea if she can act or not). Hmm… but who could they find to play abusive lover Bobby Brown opposite her? No one we can think of, surely. No one with the same last name, even. [Popdust]
:: A debate about whether white men can or cannot jump ended when Diddy was dunked over in the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Mostly, we’re just shocked Diddy let himself be associated with any liquid besides Ciroc, clearly the only beverage anyone in the entire world should drink. Ever. [PunchBowl Blog]
:: Beyonce took a leopard-print blanket out for a walk. Oh, and apparently it had something called a “Blue Ivy” in it. [JustJared]
:: Azealia Banks’ debut album won’t drop until September. “The theme is a young girl trying to find it,” she says of the LP, titled Broke With Expensive Taste. Ah yes, we can relate. [Rap-Up]

Party foul! Rapper Jim Jones was one of five people arrested yesterday after a fight that broke out early morning at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. The altercation transpired at a party hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs (no stranger to ill-tempered outbursts himself — what, did they run out of Ciroc?). Jones was charged with resisting arrest for an alleged assault on an officer and breach of peace. See what Jones tweeted following the arrest below.
