Did You Hear?

:: Madonna dedicated “Masterpiece” to Lady Gaga, for some reason, at her New Jersey MDNA show this weekend. She tossed off a potentially passive-aggressive dig: “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” then teased that the divas will be sharing a stage together “soon.” Hmm… we have a feeling this collaboration might look a little something like this.

:: Justin Bieber was reportedly approached to play S&M fetishist Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of the inexplicably popular Fifty Shades of Grey books. Color us 50 shades of relieved that this will never come to pass. (Except maybe in Selena Gomez‘s worst nightmares.) [NME]

:: Rihanna offered to babysit for Snooki on Twitter. (We assume she meant Snooki’s new baby boy Lorenzo, not Snooki herself.) Ordinarily, we might worry that Ri Ri’s wild, frequently topless lifestyle might rub off on the child, but considering who his mother is, that’s probably a good influence. [Just Jared]

:: You need not necessarily be a sister to enjoy Brandy‘s For Sisters Only performance. [Rap-Up]

:: Perhaps inspired by her edgy new ‘do, Miley Cyrus has been tweeting some rather serious, soul-searching stuff, like: “sometimes i feel like i love everyone more than they love me.” Apparently she’s replaced her chipper Hannah Montana alter ego with one that sounds a lot more like Sinead O’Connor.
