American Idol is so desperate for ratings, they’re wanting Chris Brown and Rihanna to perform together on the show.

A source close to American Idol has told E! that producers are in talks with Chris Brown and Rihanna about performing together on the show this season.

“They want Chris and Rihanna to reunite on the show,” the insider says.

If the rumor is true, it will be their first public appearance together since 2009, when Brown was arrested for assaulting Rihanna.

The last time they appeared onstage together was in 2008—and, judging by the controversy kicked up by Brown’s performance (and win) at the Grammys this month, plenty of critics would react harshly to the pair collaborating on stage.

But if this did happen, which song would they do—assuming that the pair’s two just-released remixes would be the likely choices? It’s unlikely they could perform Rihanna’s sexually charged “Birthday Cake,” which may be too risqué for prime time, so maybe they’d do Brown’s “Turn Up the Music”? Or something else entirely?

Rihanna’s rep denied the rumor, saying, “It’s not true.”

But in any case, Fox has not yet approved the pairing, our source tells us, adding that the idea is still in the very early stages of discussion.
The network had no comment.

I will be so upset if the rumors are true. I know a lot of you think I just need to get over this – and move on – but I do not think it’s appropriate for them to be on stage together again. Especially on a family-friendly show like American Idol. Idol is obviously hurting for ratings, and know that this would put a spike of interest in the show.

What do you think about the two of them performing together again?

Rihanna, Adele, Florence Welch, Lana Del Rey and more at the BRIT Awards in London!

Here are some new pictures of the ladies from last night’s BRIT Awards in London. They’re basically the Grammys, but overseas. Rihanna took home the international female prize for a second year. Rihanna wore this Givenchy gown, which in my opinion, just makes her look old. I’m not a fan.

Lana Del Rey won the Breakthrough Award. “This award means much more to me than you know,” said the singer. She wore a gorgeous Vivienne Westwood gown. (Can I just add that I love the name Vivienne? What a beautiful name! If I were having any more kids, I’d keep it!)

Adele was again the big winner of the night, taking home the award for Album of the Year and Best British Solo Artist.

“It’s been an amazing year,” Adele said as she received the female artist statuette from petite pop star Kylie Minogue.

“I feel like a drag queen next to you,” joked the winner, who wore a sleek black Burberry gown but towered over Minogue. She thanked her record company “for letting me be the kind of artist I want to be.”

The show’s host, actor James Corden, cut off Adele’s second acceptance speech, prompting the singer to make a rude middle-finger gesture in frustration.

She stressed afterward that it was aimed at industry leaders, not her fans.

“I’m sorry if I offended anyone but it was the suits that offended me,” Adele said. “Thank you all very much and thanks to my fans. I don’t want them to think I was swearing at them.”

The show’s broadcaster, ITV, issued a statement apologizing to Adele for cutting her off.

“We regret this happened and we send deepest apologies to Adele that her big moment was cut short tonight due to the live show over-running,” ITV said.

Florence Welch wore a Alexander McQueen gown. Nicole Scherzinger wore a gorgeous yellow Versace dress. Jessie J wore a revealing red lace Falguni & Shane Peacock dress. Very Gaga-ish if you ask me.

It’s true! Chris Brown & Rihanna reunite on new duet – listen to it here!

Chris Brown and Rihanna have not only recorded ONE song together, they’ve recorded TWO songs together.

Yesterday afternoon, the former couple both released remixes featuring each other. Chris Brown sang on Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake”, and Rihanna joined in on Chris’s “Turn Up The Music.”

The songs dropped at the same time.

Even though many of us aren’t able to forgive Chris, it’s obvious that Rihanna has. Here are some of the lyrics from their songs. Rihanna sang on Brown’s song the words, “I love you baby,” and Chris singing on “Birthday Cake”: “Girl I wanna f**k you right now. Been a long time, I’ve been missing your body,” only further fuels rumors the two have being seeing each other in secret.

Listen below!

Rihanna and Kate Moss attend the Stella McCartney fashion show in London.

Rihanna and Kate Moss were spotted at the LFW Stella McCartney presentation at One Mayfair in London, UK. Both ladies wore dresses by Stella, which one do you think looks better?

I actually like Stella’s dresses most of the time. She’s a celebrity favorite, dressing A-List celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet and more.

Who do you think looks better? Plus a picture of Stella below.

You ready for this? Chris Brown and Rihanna have a new duet – set to release NEXT WEEK.

When I read this story, I thought there’s no way she’d actually perform a new song with him… right? Well, according to Life & Style, the troubled couple have recorded a duet together, and it’s supposed to drop next week.

“Rihanna’s dropping a new single next week, and Chris is going to be featured on it,” an insider tells Life & Style. “It’s going to be a full version of an interlude titled ‘Birthday Cake’ from [her latest album] Talk That Talk.”

And in another big step forward for the exes — who split in 2009 after Chris assaulted Rihanna — the two singers are once again on good terms, Chris’ rep has confirmed to Life & Style.

“Chris and Rihanna are friends again,” his rep tells Life & Style. But the rep denies that the exes have rekindled their romance. “They’re just friends,” the rep adds

Signs of a collaboration had been mounting for some time. Earlier this month, Rihanna responded to a tweet about when her fans could expect a full version “Birthday Cake” with: “I promised! 1st on the agenda ’12 #CAKE.”

Adding fuel to the fire, producers Da Internz confirmed the song would be released this month.

“Both our bdays & @rihanna’s bday [are] in FEB, & this is the month we release FULL VERSION OF #CAKE. MOVIE SCRIPT S–T PEOPLE,” they he said: “It’s gonna be crazy. And the feature on there is gonna shock the world.”

And just 11 days after that, Chris and Rihanna were spotted going into the same recording studio in LA.

Three years ago this month, Chris brutally attacked Rihanna after a Grammy party. In June 2009, he pleaded guilty to felony assault and received up to five years’ probation.

A restraining order was issued, but in February 2011 it was downgraded to a level-one order, which allows Chris to have contact with Rihanna.

“I’m a fan of his stuff. I’ve always been a fan,” Rihanna has said about Chris since the assault. “Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I’ve put that behind me. It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger. I’m really excited to see the breakthrough he’s had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have.”

Reps for neither Chris nor Rihanna would confirm or deny that the song will be released.

I really hope it’s not true, but if it is…it would make so much sense. They have been spending a lot of time together, and several sources claim the two have gotten cozy again. I just don’t know how I feel about a Rihanna/Chris Brown duet!?
