Never one to hold her tongue, Pink lit into Chris Brown during last night Billboard Music Awards, accusing the hip-hop star of lip synching his dance-heavy performance of "Turn Up the Music."
"One day if I lip-sync, I hope I do it as well as him," the 32-year-old singer tweeted during the show.
To be fair, she was far from the only one – our Twitter feed lit up with the accusation during the show, which also featured performances from Katy Perry, Usher and Jordin Sparks, who remembered her "Sparkle" co-star Whitney Houston with a stirring rendition of her signature "I Will Always Love You."
Pink had far kinder words for two of the night's other major performances, lavishing praise on both Carrie Underwood and Justin Bieber. Of Underwood, Pink tweeted, "Sing that song woman. Ms Underwood sounds lovely."
She also gave props to Bieber, saying, "I like this boyfriend song.... I also would really like one of those glow in the dark dancer outfits!!! Hawt."
Oh, Rihanna. Between ex Chris Brown's alleged rap freestyle dissing her, rumors that all is simply not well and a health scare that landed her briefly in the hospital, the pop superstar has been having a tough week.
But rather than linger over all the chatter or get down on herself, this weekend Rihanna did what Rihanna does best … post semi-scandalous photos to her Twitter, this time taking fans behind the scenes of her (absolutely stunning!) "Where Have You Been" music video.
For those who think the makeup work that turned her into a mermaid-like creature for the swamp scenes was easy, these pictures show it was anything but. It took hours of work to get the diva looking just right for the shoot.

Rihanna sparked concern among her fans last night when she responded to a fan questioning her day-long Twitter silence (the pop star is avid in her use of the medium) with an Instagram photo of an IV in her arm.
"What da f**x good?! You been quiet all day," the fan observed. Rihanna responded with the photo below:
The pic comes just days after Rihanna reportedly opted out of final rehearsals for her "Saturday Night Live" appearance this weekend, saying she was sick. That same day, she tweeted that she wasn't feeling well.
But fan's can rest easy that she is on her way home to LA – hopefully to get some rest. Early this morning, Rihanna tweeted a photo of herself getting ready to board a private jet from New York to Los Angeles. "My ride home NY days LA nights," she tweeted, adding the hashtag, "#itwuzreal."
Rihanna loves Adele. Adele loves Rihanna. But the 21 belter did not get a pair of boobies from the Talk That Talk pop star for her birthday. Got it?
Adele took to Twitter this morning to put an end to a widespread rumor that
known lover of the erotic arts Rihanna sent her a birthday cake on May 5, her 24th birthday, in the shape of, um, a bare female bust.
The story goes something like this: Sometime Saturday, Adele was milling about her north London flat (bear with our attempt at British-ness here), as she's wont to do, when she received a caller. Much to her surprise, the mystery visitor came bearing gifts – specifically a cake in the shape of nude female breasts from Rihanna. But wait! There was a card too, which read, " Happy Birthday to my lover, Adele, the baddest b**ch around. Have the best freaking Bday. Cake cake cake xxx."
The story seemed plausible enough. After all, if you were going to get a boob cake from any pop star, it would almost certainly be Rihanna, who is known for her naughty sense of humor and occasionally risqué behavior. But alas, it wasn't meant to be…
While Rihanna did wish the "Rolling in the Deep" Grammy winner a very happy birthday on Twitter, Adele shot down the rumor, tweeting, "Had a lovely birthday, thanks for all the messages. I got a blossom tree! I didn't get a cake from Rih Rih & I'm not engaged, blah blah x"
Oh well. Maybe next year.
Or should we say, the way we dress, but we never claimed to be a fashion icon. Why you gotta blow our spot like that, Kanye?
We're big fans of button-ups, hoodies and khaki cargo shorts. (Hey, sometimes a guy needs a few extra pockets!)
Kanye West is a sporadic Twitter-er at best, but when he has something to say, he does not hold back. Over the weekend, the hip-hop superstar was out and about in NYC and didn't like what he saw. "Just driving through the city and I see a few thing I hate…" he tweeted, before proceeding to list the many looks he's just not that into.
Now, and we hate doing this because we are such big fans, but maybe we busted Kanye rocking one of the above looks. Check it out after the jump. Read More...
Selena Gomez, Twitter
Taylor Swift must harbor no ill will about being punk'd so hard by Justin Bieber, because she hit the kitchen with his lady friend, Selena Gomez, to bake up some magic.
Gomez posted the above pic, as is, to her Twitter account showing herself and a friend baking cupcakes with Swift, who entertained them by strumming away on her guitar (no teardrops!).
"Because you need a best friend that's sings beautifully, another best friend to dance with you and another to listen. Oh and cupcakes... Cupcakes," Gomez wrote.
Also, baking cupcakes is so Taylor Swift Being Taylor Swift, just like all the family friendly fun below!

Few musicians of today have reached the revered, iconic status of the Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne – the zany, free-spirited entity who somehow slipped his way into the mainstream pop culture strata. His group has only one genuine hit to their name, yet they’re one of the most popular “underground” bands to ever exist. (Although, being on Warner Bros Records, they were never truly “underground” – more like out of place).
It’s rather surprising that the band hasn’t curated a music festival of their own considering the wealth of critical acclaim – and well, love – they receive from fellow musicians, which helps explains how they recruited so many friends for their new album. When I saw Coldplay perform in Coyne’s hometown of Oklahoma City back in ’03, Chris Martin donned a Lips shirt and they performed a cover of the Lips’ “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. I” before he verbally praised the group as a huge influence.
Even country-pop superstar Taylor Swift has love for the group as she had the lyrics to their song “Do You Realize?” written across her arm for a performance. Miley Cyrus too showed her devotion by posting the lyrics to “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. I” through a series of tweets.
DJ/producer Diplo never thought he’d find himself in a jungle with Coyne, which he told us about earlier this month, saying: “He’s just f**king crazy – he’s in the jungle with a f**king suit on all day.
With his Southern charm, Coyne has managed to meet an eclectic group of celebs, musicians and entertainers. So without further ado, here are six of our favorite Wayne Coyne celeb photo ops. Read More...
Lady Gaga is in the homestretch. Her much awaited "Born the Way Ball" opens at Olympic Stadium in Seoul, South Korea, on Friday, and she is already in the country doing final rehearsals for the massive show.
Lady Gaga, Twitter
The pop star arrived in S. Korea Friday and has been tweeting images from the stadium as it is readied for her show, complete with that massive stage we took a look at last week. And in a fitting twist, it's been rainy in Korea, just as it's been in Gaga's native NYC. Feels like home.
>> Is This Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way Ball' Stage? (Pic)
Check out more pics of the pop star taking in the venue that on Friday will be filled with tens of thousands of Little Monsters, after the jump. Read More...
We love it when celebs use Twitter for good instead of evil, and last night, two of the biggest pop stars around hit the site with a whole lot of love for each other.
Lady Gaga has never made her Britney Spears fandom a secret. During her MTV First (after the jump), she confessed that she used to call in to vote for Brit Brit on "TRL," saying that on the days she couldn't make it to Time Square to join in the fun she "would lay in bed and I would be speed dialing for Britney to have the #1 video." And last year when she presented Spears with her Video Vanguard VMA the two had a near-miss kiss that got everyone talking.
So it's no surprise then that Gaga, who leaves for South Korea today to prep for the April 27 kick off of her "Born This Way Ball" in Seoul, hit Twitter last night with a packing list and high up on it was her Britney thermos (below).
Lady Gaga, Twitter
After seeing Gaga's tweet, Britney responded with a bit of curiosity ("Wonder what @ladygaga keeps in the thermos?") and what seems like a promise to see Mother Monster on the road ("Can't wait to see you on tour. MISS YOU!").
While their stand may sometimes battle it out online, it's fantastic to see that these two seem to have a lot of love and respect for each other. Check out Lady Gaga talking about Britney and her "TRL" fan days below! Read More...

Time and time again Twitter casually drops music news gems in our lap, and this time it concerns Dave Grohl being in the studio with some old chums: original Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic and producer Butch Vig.
The three music icons are said to be working on Grohl’s in-the-works documentary on Sound City Studios – the place where Nirvana recorded their worshipped breakthrough effort Nevermind. And for those who don’t recall, Vig is the man responsible for producing that album and making Cobain’s guitar sound not only intelligible, but totally freaking awesome.
Vig let news slip of the little get-together on his Twitter account, writing, “The last 24 hours have been surreal! Had a great gig at the El Rey last night, and spent today recording with Dave, Krist and special guest!”
Unfortunately, we have no word on just who this “guest” might be. The trio also got together not very long ago when they all worked on the last Foo Fighter’s album, 2011’s Wasting Light, which was produced by Vig and featured Novoselic (who contributed bass and accordion on “I Should Have Known"). The Foo Fighters are also expected to begin work on their upcoming eighth studio album later this year.
Also, Vig is taking a break from being a production powerhouse to get back to his musical roots with his act Garbage. The band has reformed and is set to release Not Your Kind of People on May 14. The album will mark their first release since the 2005's Bleed Like Me.
Novoselic on the other hand has dabbled very little in music since the demise of Nirvana. His focus has been on US politics in recent years, leading to a book “Of Grunge and Government: Let's Fix This Broken Democracy.”
