:: Chris Brown and Rihanna have officially called it quits, or so it seems. The pair, who have been on-and-off dating for a while, are said to be focusing on their upcoming musical projects and have been giving each other some much needed space. [E!]

:: On the heels of his Roc Nation Sports deal with Robinson Cano, Jay-Z has secured a label deal for Roc Nation that will now act as a standalone record label under Universal Music. [Complex]

:: In other Jay-Z Rules The World news, it turns out Beyonce and Jay’s trip to Cuba was cleared by the US Treasury after all. The celebrity couple recently visited Havana for their fifth wedding anniversary and came under fire from Cuban Americans and several Republican members of Congress who argued it violated our nation’s longstanding embargo.

:: In other Beyonce Rules The World news, the Met Gala just got upgraded. Bey has been named this year’s honorary chair for the Costume Institute Gala. The “Grown Woman” songstress will join fashion icons Anna Wintour and Riccardo Tisci for the Institute’s exhibit, “Punk: Chaos To Couture” on May 6. [Billboard]

:: Surprise, surprise. Now that Ray J’s new single “Ugh This Is Such Attention-Whoring Trash” “I Hit It First” is out and has accumulated a steady amount of buzz based on the fact that it’s about Kim Kardashian, the…singer (?) says the song is not about Kim. (Even though it is and he’s terrible.) [MTV]

:: Kelly Clarkson has confirmed that Blake Shelton will be singing and conducting the ceremonies at her upcoming wedding to Shelton’s manager, Brandon Blackstock. Sounds like a country bash not to be missed. [Entertainment Tonight]
