Rihanna defends Chris Brown romance, says things may go wrong but she’s happy. Rihanna reveals why she decided to reconcile with Chris Brown in the new issue of Rolling Stone, telling the magazine, “I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’smy mistake,” continues the singer.
She adds, ”After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.” Rihanna’s relationship with Brown — which seems to be in a near-constant state of flux — has been under much scrutiny ever since he assaulted her in 2009, and the performer says she knows most people don’t understand why she’s reunited with him.

Elton John and Billy Joel not only have one of the longest and most lucrative relationships in the music business, they’re also close friends. Â That friendship has been intermittently strained over the years due to issues with drugs and alcohol. Â Elton cleaned up his act years ago and has remained sober, but Billy still struggles, to the point where Elton and Billy have had to cancel tour dates to accommodate Billy’s relapses.
Elton told Rolling Stone magazine that he thought Billy should take his rehab more seriously and go to a facility with strict rules and regulations, but Billy has decided to blow the whole thing off – he claims that the concerned comments were just “Elton being Elton,” and has not mentioned anything about taking the advice to heart.
This is all soooo junior high â€¦.so you may need a MAP. Snarkista gets a laugh out of Miley Cyrus attempting to make fun of her NOW ex’s new (and prettier) girlfriend. You know Miley has that new Rolling Stone cover of the Jonas brothers plastered EVERYWHERE. Not that she’s a stalker like Aniston. Apparently, Miley’s just apologized for this video, but Snarkista’s not sure she’s sincere!
Disney girl Selena Gomez (“The Next Miley Cyrus”) made a YouTube video awhile back with her equally cute best friend and fellow Disney star Demi Lovato (possibly another “The Next Miley Cyrus”). Miley used to date Nick Jonas, who is NOW dating Selena, and Miley’s not a big fan.
Miley struck back the way she does everything offstage…on camera. Miley’s annoying friend Mandy’s in the clip too. Notice how instinctively Miley pulls her shirt to show the camera! The video is mindless, and only important for one reason. Miley, this kinda shizz is why Nick, the nice boy, bolted.
Girls, Snarkista’s gonna give you a BIG rule to follow. No matter how many of your friends send skanky pics to their boyfriends, DO NOT DO IT if your boyfriend is (hopefully) a NICE BOY. NICE BOYS will run away. If you want a prince, you must behave like a princess. (Not the diva kind, or the My Super Sweet Sixteen kind). This is a timeless rule, and no matter how much your friends say it’s stupid, hide and watch and you”ll see Snarkista is RIGHT.
And Miley? Lay off the Ritalin (or Adderall)! You really need to stop being the loudest girl in the room, another MAJOR rule violation. Here’s Miley and Mandy’s video making fun of Demi and Selena’s video. OMG! She’s SUCH a BITCH!!
Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas have just done what every singer, musician and band wants to do. Be on the cover of the Rolling Stone. It’s a milestone in a successful career, one that a minuscule number of artists ever achieve. And they are all under 21. What do they want the world to know? That they’re a real band. Disney’s been great to them, but they want to be seen for the musicians they are. A tween’s dream, they are truly a drug for a young girl’s brain. Sayeth the Stone:
Big Rob escorts Nick, Kevin and Joe to their places. Suddenly, the lights go dark, triggering a roar in the 20,000-seat Cricket Wireless Pavilion that can only be described as primal. And it is, in a way. The neuropsychiatrist Dr. Louann Brizendine, author of the bestseller The Female Brain, says the release of dopamine in a screaming teenage girl’s brain upon seeing her pop idols is like “injecting heroin.” Being with other screaming girls, she says, only makes the effect wilder.
“There’s a thing in biology we call synchrony,” Brizendine says. “Basically, one girl affects another affects another, and it becomes a domino effect building up to that level of hysteria. They are getting all these brain hits of dopamine, and also oxytocin, which is a love-and-bonding hormone. Teenage girls have so much estrogen, which just catapults the level of dopamine and oxytocin in the brain, creating this sort of ecstatic rush in themselves and others. It truly is a state of ecstatic love.”
It’s nearing 8:00 on a sweltering night in Phoenix, and as the temperature mercifully dips below 100 degrees, a trillion swelling hormones have collected at the Cricket Wireless Pavilion to experience the Jonas Brothers. Among the undersize pilgrims in attendance are Jordan and Jackie, a pair of blond preteens from nearby Scottsdale. Moments ago, they met the Jonas Brothers in person at a “meet and greet” photo op, and now they stand red-cheeked, quivering and sobbing uncontrollably, as if they’ve been told that Disneyland just burned down, with the world’s supply of kittens and baby pandas trapped inside.
“Omigodomigodomigod,” Jordan says, holding her arms aloft and shaking her palms in the air.
“I got tingles in my body all over the place, because I. Just. Met. Nick. Jonas,” Jackie says.
“I’ve wanted to meet them for, like, my whole entire life,” Jordan says.
How old are you?
It’s like this everywhere.
