Did You Hear?
:: Rihanna is on the short list to play the late, great Whitney Houston in a possible upcoming biopic (so soon? jeez), even though her first movie Battleship has yet to be released (thus we have no idea if she can act or not). Hmm… but who could they find to play abusive lover Bobby Brown opposite her? No one we can think of, surely. No one with the same last name, even. [Popdust]
:: A debate about whether white men can or cannot jump ended when Diddy was dunked over in the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Mostly, we’re just shocked Diddy let himself be associated with any liquid besides Ciroc, clearly the only beverage anyone in the entire world should drink. Ever. [PunchBowl Blog]
:: Nicki Minaj will play the UK’s V festival this summer. Which is fine, as long as “V” doesn’t stand for “Vatican.” [That Grape Juice]
:: Beyonce took a leopard-print blanket out for a walk. Oh, and apparently it had something called a “Blue Ivy” in it. [JustJared]
:: Azealia Banks’ debut album won’t drop until September. “The theme is a young girl trying to find it,” she says of the LP, titled Broke With Expensive Taste. Ah yes, we can relate. [Rap-Up]
