“Sweeter than a rice cake…”

For any who doesn’t consider themselves a Rihanna fan, the name ‘Melissa Forde’  may not ring any bells at all.

However, any who do will know that Ms. Forde has served as the Fenty’s full time shadow since her debut in 2005, and has reportedly known the model since childhood.

Now, in the heat of the well publicized love triangle between Rihanna, Chris Brown and socialite Karrueche Tran, Forde has launched a vicious attack on the latter- confirming that a derogatory nickname fans believed she had coined for Tran months ago was indeed aimed at her.

Their feud may have been one of the biggest showbiz stories of the year, yet that hasn’t stopped superstar Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj from pressing on with their American Idol duties…together.

The duelling divas are all smiles in this freshly released promo for the show, which features fellow judges Keith Urban and Randy Jackson, as well as host Ryan Seacrest.

Interestingly, the photoshoot took place just days removed from their infamous showdown; a period which saw tensions still sky-high.

That said, we’re entirely not surprised the drama is undetectable in the pic.  After all, The epic cheque (double digit millions) and  guaranteed media coverage for their upcoming projects will serve as insentive enough to simply slap on what we call the “air hostess smile” and get on with it.

Last night, in an interview with Jay Leno, Obama mocked these claims, boldly addressing Trump’s controversial attack.

You’ve seen Pink‘s ‘Try’ video, now see how the singer cooked it up an exclusive behind the scenes look via VEVO.

The anthemic cut is the second to be lifted from her chart-topping LP ‘The Truth About Love’ – which after almost a month on sale is still in the top 10 of the Billboard 200.

Thus far ‘Try’ has peaked at #56 on the Hot 100,  an impressive feat given that its promotional push has been delayed due to the success of the album’s lead single ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’, which after 15 weeks on the chart still sits comfortably in the top 10. Needless to say, “winning”.
