Rihanna joined Twitter this week, just to let fans know that, “The Wait Is Ova.” She followed this up with a second tweet that read, “Nov 23 09,” which is presumably the release date of her newest album since Good Girl Gone Bad came out in 2007. She’s already shot the album cover in a nude bodysuit and white faux fur coat, so we’re wondering if she’s going back to “good” now that she’s ditched the neo goth look? In more Rihanna-related news, Chris Brown‘s please-forgive-me-Rihanna song, “So Cold,” was leaked onto the internet this week and I hate to say it, but it’s a decent song if you can ignore the fact that Chris Brown is a jackass.

- LeAnn Rimes‘ love life became tabloid fodder when she fell in love with her Lifetime movie co-star Eddie Cibrian … and they were both married. Now they’ve divorced their significant others and are dating. LeAnn has a new record coming out in the spring which she promises will fill us in on the drama. “Most of the stuff I’ve written [myself], so it’s definitely my life,” she said. It’ll be “down the middle between heartbreak and love.” The country songstress seems pretty upbeat despite the fact that her life took a 180, but making music has helped her. “Part of my therapy is to write,” she says. “I write with a lot of my best friends, so most of [our meetings] are therapy sessions that turn into songs.” [People]
- It sounds like the Spice Girls are cleaning out the spice cabinet for their upcoming record. Even though they haven’t released a decent song in over a decade, they have managed to stay just in the back of everyone’s mind with a reunion tour. Now they are reuniting again, sans Victoria Beckham. Melanie Brown, Ginger, Sporty, and Baby Spice have a new album up their sleeves. “We’re actually working on it right now,” says Melanie. “I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but it’s really, really exciting.” [People] — I’d be more excited if they just accepted that “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life” were really great in 1996, but might not translate so great to modern times. Or, at least they could do a grownup version? The Spice Women, anyone?
