Lily Allen got a new tattoo last night, while she was out gallivanting with Lindsay Lohan in Hollywood. It says, “Shhh…” on her index finger — you know, like “be quiet?” Anyway, we would think this was a clever bit o’ ink for the singer, except that Rihanna already has it. So what’s the deal? Is this a tattoo trend on the rise, like Chinese characters, swallows, and nautical stars? Of course, three is a trend, so if Lindsay Lohan starts shushing Sam Ronson with her own “Shhh…” tat, we’ll know we’re right. Oh, also, we really hope RiRi uses her finger to tell Chris Brown to STFU. [DListed] Keep reading »

He speaks! Alleged Rihanna beater, Chris Brown, finally spoke out this weekend on allegations that he assaulted his pop star (ex?) girlfriend, releasing the following statement:
“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person.
Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else.
Those posts or writings under my name are frauds.”
Okay, let me see if I’ve got this right. Chris is remorseful for “events that transpired,” so remorseful, in fact, that he needs God’s help, but much of what the media has reported about those events is “wrong.” It’s likely that the rumors that Rihanna gave Chris herpes or vice versa are total crap, but what about the alleged assault itself? Is that wrong too? Keep reading »
More rumors surround the Chris Brown/Rihanna incident! According to The Sun, the LAPD is looking into whether there had been a history of violence between Brown and Rihanna, and one of the incidents they’re checking out is when RiRi suddenly started sporting an eyepatch, saying she had scratched her cornea. The singer wore a silver patch when she performed at the American Music Awards last year, and, at the time, we dubbed it an “injury accessory,” not thinking it could have been related to an actual injury. So, is it possible Rihanna was covering up a black eye? Not really — she took off the patch halfway through her performance and walked the red carpet without it (above right). What’s more likely is that the LAPD just doesn’t understand her over-the-top style. After the jump, watch the video of her American Music Awards performance to see for yourself.

Attention Chris Brown‘s lawyer. You should probably get your client on the horn and tell him that when he facing allegations that he assaulted a pop music princess, he shouldn’t be responding to those allegations via his Facebook. According to the New York Post, Brown updated his private Facebook page yesterday, changing his status to “single” and putting up the message, “You’ll begin to see her true colors. Believe it!”
It’s safe to assume he’s referring to Rihanna, which is further confirmation that she was the female involved in the alleged incident and that she and Brown are definitely OFF for now. As we await updates from, you know, the police, I am going to befriend Brown on Facebook so I can keep further tabs on his online alerts. Like he can reject me, BTW, considering he needs all the friends he can get right now. Who else is there? Jordin Sparks? [NY Post] Keep reading »
