Did You Hear?

:: After dropping her debut fragrance “Heat” and its olfactory follow-up, “Heat Rush”, Beyonce will drop her third fragrance, “Pulse”. It reportedly smells like “pear blossom, peony, midnight blooming jasmine, Madagascar vanilla and for the first time in a fragrance, bluebird orchid.” And if you don’t pick it up when it goes on sale this September, it just may be the best thing you never had.

:: Justin Timberlake defended Britney’s dancing to Playboy, saying “If you pulled up a video I did from 2003, I couldn’t do the shit I did then either.” PopDust decided to prove this by compiling side-by-side footage of JT then (pop maestro) and now (golfer who appears in bad comedies from time to time).

:: Lil Mama is taking some cues from Lil Kim, and is accusing Nicki Minaj of ripping off her style. Uh huh. [Rap-Radar]

:: Take your “Polka Face” and read a track-by-track review of Weird Al’s latest pop star-skewering masterwork, Alpocolypse. [PopCrush]
