Drake brought his awkwardly titled Would You Like A Tour? tour to Europe, and for Tuesday’s Paris show he brought out his old pal Rihanna as a surprise guest for their 2011 cut “Take Care.” Dressed in matching white getups, they looked prettyyyy comfortable together during the sexy duet, grinding in the middle and then horsing around with a dance-off during the song’s coda.

Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” Video Has Been Declared Blasphemous By Petitioners: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: Katy Perry has come under fire for burning an Allah pendant in her high-camp “Dark Horse” video. It turns out that one of the characters she zaps is wearing religious jewelry and now 44,000 offended Muslims have signed a petition to get the video removed from YouTube. [Spin]

:: Could there be love in the air? Rihanna joined former flame Drake on stage in Paris to belt out their 2011 hit duet “Take Care”. Drizzy would certainly be an upgrade from Chris Brown. [Rap-Up]

:: Kanye West sure knows how to keep busy. The in-demand MC/shoe designer has signed on as executive producer of Tyga‘s new LP The Gold Album. Ye always delivers so this should be something special. [MissInfo.tv]

:: A not always reliable website is speculating that Robin Thicke‘s MTV VMA performance with Miley Cyrus is one of the reasons for the crooner’s separation from wife Paula Patton. I’m sure they had bigger problems than a foam finger. [Hollywood Life]

Rihanna Is Recording A Concept Album Based On New Animated Movie ‘Home’. What Now?

Good news, Navy! Rihanna will be releasing new tunes in the not-too-distant future but it won’t be on her now long-overdue annual LP. According to Variety, the hitmaker is recording a concept album based on a new animated movie called Home. She also voices one of the blockbuster’s main characters.

This seems highly unlikely for someone of RiRi’s stature but the article quotes DreamWorks Animation boss Jeffrey Katzenberg for the curious news. Perhaps something was lost in translation and she’s merely recording a couple of songs for the soundtrack? That would make a lot more sense. I guess we’ll know soon enough. Home hits theaters in November. More »

Eminem Announces Joint Tour With Rihanna

Eminem will tour with Rihanna for three dates this summer, he says to XXL and confirms on Twitter. Naturally, this jaunt is named it after their second chart hit together: The Monster Tour.

Exact dates have yet to be announced, though Eminem reveal that they will perform in New York, Los Angeles and his hometown Detroit in August. To have these two coming together for even just three days feels a little miraculous: These dates will mark the first time that Eminem tours with a pop star. (Artists ranging from David Guetta to A$AP Rocky and HAIM have opened for Rihanna.)

The rapper’s also currently on his Rapture tour with Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole, while Rihanna just wrapped her Diamonds World Tour last fall. Speaking of busy schedules: While Rihanna has joined him in the past to perform their first hit, “Love the Way You Lie” off his Recovery, they had to piece together follow-up hit “Monster” (off The Marshall Mathers LP 2, currently No. 13 on Billboard’s Hot 100) over email due to conflicting schedules, as to be expected from two global superstars.

Did You Hear?

:: Christina Aguilera is pregnant with her second child according to media reports. The happy news comes a couple of days after she announced her engagement to boyfriend Matt Rutler. Congratulations! [Digital Spy]

:: Pharrell is putting his iconic Vivienne Westwood-designed Grammy hat up for auction to raise money for charity. The eye-catching hat has already attracted a bid of $10,500. [Billboard]

:: Don’t mess around with Rihanna‘s finances. The good girl gone bad sued her accountants after bad advice after almost going bankrupt in 2009 and they have agreed to pay her $10 million in damages. [Complex]

:: Kanye West is heading down under. The controversial rapper is bringing his Yeezus tour to Australia. He will perform in stadiums around the country in early May. Fingers crossed he doesn’t cancel. [Billboard]

:: The members of Pussy Riot just can’t win. They were arrested at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia but were later released without being charged. Keep fighting the good fight! [Pitchfork]

Rihanna Lands Third ‘Vogue’ Cover In Four Years

Rihanna is the cover girl for Vogue‘s March 2014 issue, her third cover spot for the mag in four years. This one touts the line, “How The Unstoppable Pop Diva Became A Full-On Fashion Force.” Thing is, she’s rocking a decidedly basic look, with jeans and a sheer top.

RiRi’s still rocking the cropped hair she flaunted on the November 2012 cover, but she’s ditched that cover’s glamorous style. Check out a high quality version of the cover below. More »

Ladies Who Duet: 23 All-Female Songs For A Sapphic Valentine’s Day

Girls, Girls, Girls!
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, not to mention Shakira and Rihanna‘s touchy-feely “Can’t Remember To Forget You” bed romp still fresh on our minds, we couldn’t help but think back to some of the great female pop pair-ups over the years. After all, we love ladies, and we love ladies who love to, er, duet with other ladies.

For this particular roundup, we scoured the most recent crop of diva collabs (Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu, Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera), went a tiny bit old school (Beyonce and Shakira, Gaga and Bey), went really old school (Salt N Pepa and En Vogue, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston) and then threw in some straight-up classic female pairings (Donna Summer and Barbra Streisand, Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin). To round things out, we included a couple of tracks from female duos and a pair of separate songs by the same two female pop forces — one a rapstress-turned-actress, the other a tried and true Harajuku Girl enthusiast.

Head below and add a little sugar and spice to your life by hitting play on our special No Boys Allowed Valentine’s Day playlist! More »

Rihanna Almost Went Bankrupt In 2009: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: Rihanna should have mountains of money, right? Well, for a while there in 2009 RiRi was on struggle street. In fact, she nearly went bankrupt due to “gross mismanagement” by her accountant. [TMZ]

:: The Grammys really put a few noses out of joint when they cut off Nine Inch Nails and Queens Of The Stone Age mid-song. Trent Reznor already put them on blast and Josh Homme just added his two cents at a recent concert. [NME]

:: Nas is developing a half-hour TV series for Xbox called Street Dreams. It’s a semi-autobiographical show set in the ’90s that documents the life of a struggling rapper in New York City. Sounds good! [Vulture]

:: Well, this is just rude. A group of Michael Jackson fans that sued Dr. Conrad Murray for emotional distress were awarded a measly $1.36 each. That’s not even enough to download “Man In The Mirror”! [Billboard]
