The Morning Mix: Miley Cyrus And Joaquin Phoenix, BFFs?

Good morning! There’s a new man in Miley’s life, and he’s a lot older than her Aussie beau Liam Hemsworth—after working for charity TWLOHA together, Miley and Joaquin Phoenix have allegedly struck up an odd friendship. Does this mean she’ll make a cameo on his “brilliant album of great music”? It makes as much sense as her collaborating with Timbaland on Shock Value II. Plus Joaquin and Miley could cover a Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash classic. Perfect!

:: The 21 greatest hip-hop supergroups of all time. How come no one’s made a superhero movie starring all rappers? We’d see that opening night, for sure. [Complex]

:: Is actress and gossip blog regular Amanda Bynes dating Kid Cudi? Whoever it is, if she keeps tweeting like a 12-year old about her Grammy-nominated mystery crush, they won’t be dating for very long. [E! Online]

:: Drake (who was once rumored to have hooked up with Rihanna) performs on-stage with Chris Brown. If there was any tension between these two over RiRi, bygones are apparently bygones. [Neon Limelight]

:: Kanye West BLOGS about the rumors that he demanded a better seat during a flight and thanks his fans for supporting him “even though its not the trend right now.” Didn’t he hear the new trend is trash talking Taylor Swift? [Rap Radar]

After the jump: we extend our pigskin mania for one more day by doing the Super Bowl shuffle.

VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: To ween yourself off Super Bowl mania, savor one last tasty morsel of football season by doing the “Super Bowl Shuffle.” This rap song is real, believe it or not, and was recorded by the Chicago Bears in 1985. “The Super Bowl Shuffle” not only charted on the Billboard Hot 100, it peaked at #41, and scored a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Vocal Performance – Duo or Group. Sadly, it did not win. But on a brighter side, the Bears won Super Bowl XX, so it wasn’t a complete loss. Now do the shuffle!

Have a great day, everyone!
