- That no talent ass-clown known as Paris Hilton apparently approached Sir Paul McCartney backstage at the Grammy's asking if he would consider doing a duet with her. I believe he answered by doubling over in laughter and then walking off shaking his finger while saying "That's a good one, that's a good one." There are no reports to confirm that last part.
- It looks like Rihanna's abuse suffered at the hands of (ex?) boyfriend Chris Brown moved from alleged to, uh, more powerfully alleged. She had bruises on her face and a split lip. Way to be a man Chris, way to be a man.
- It may have taken Q-Tip several years to come out with his official sophmore album, but he's learned a thing or two in the time in between. Most notably, the use of the mixtape as advertisement. The Queens MC has produced The [Abstract] Best with J. Period, a mixtape that features Tip's solo material as well as songs by Busta Rhymes and Prince Paul, among others.
