:: In other words, Chris Brown added another to his collection…on his head. The singer now has Venus de Milo right on his cranium. [Miss Info]

:: Justin Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel will be honored at this year’s GLSEN Respect Awards with the Inspiration Award. The ceremony will take place on October 23 in Los Angeles. [Variety]

:: Run The Jewel‘s Killer Mike is a big fan of Rihanna, or Rih-Pac. “Kanye is amazing and may be the greatest rock star in the world, but Rihanna is the new Tupac (in feminist form), and as much as I love rock, ain’t nobody do it like Pac! Ri-Ri rules in my book,” he revealed. [PopCrush]
