Rihanna's tweets about a lewd
sex show in Thailand last month resulted in an arrest on Saturday (October
12th). According to the Huffington Post, a bar owner in connection with
the sex show will face charges of obscenity and operating an entertainment
venue without a permit. RiRi took to Twitter to share some graphic deets
of the show and said, "Either I was phuck wasted lastnight, or I saw a
Thai woman pull a live bird,2 turtles,razors,shoot darts and ping pong, all out
of her pu**y." Thailand's local district chief explained that the man was
arrested as a part of a crackdown on shows with nude dancers. He said,
"Authorities found out about this bar the morning after Rihanna tweeted
about it, but we were not able to catch them violating the law until Saturday
night. We had been waiting for them and finally caught them red-handed."
Miley Cyrus has received yet
another open letter. Sufjan Stevens
penned a letter to Miley -- following Sinead
O'Connor's several letters from last week. In the letter, Stevens gave
her a few tips on improving her grammar saying, "Dear Miley. I can't stop
listening to '#GetItRight' (great song, great message, great body), but maybe
you need a quick grammar lesson. One particular line causes concern: 'I been
laying in this bed all night long.'" He continued, "Miley,
technically speaking, you've been LYING, not LAYING, an irregular verb form
that should only be used when there's an object, i.e. 'I been laying my tired
booty on this bed all night long.' Whatever. I'm not the best lyricist, but you
know what I mean. #Get It Right The Next Time. But don't worry, even Faulkner messed it up. We all make
mistakes, and surely this isn't your worst misdemeanor."
Pharrell Williams has
requested that Will.I.Am's
lawsuit in relation to his use of the phrase "I Am" be thrown out of
court. Will sent Pharrell a cease and desist letter earlier this year, claiming
that Pharrell's "I Am Other" brand was too similar to his own
trademark. The producer then sued Will, asking the court to rule that his
"I Am Other" brand doesn't violate any trademarks owned by Will. In
turn, the Black Eyed Peas member
countersued Pharrell, claiming that the similar names could cause confusion.
However, in new court documents obtained by TMZ, Pharrell apparently
said that Will hasn't achieved the same level of success that he has.
Therefore, there should be no confusion as to who is behind "I Am
Avril Lavigne has admitted
that she self-titled her new album because she didn't know what to call it. She
told Bello magazine, "I didn't know what to call it. I really
couldn't find a title to sum it up. At the end of the day, I didn't want to
give it a title. I'm just really excited for my fans to hear it. I think
they'll be surprised." Avril then explained that her other ventures, such
as her fashion label and fragrance are all connected to being a musician. She
said, "I like to be busy. Everything that I do outside of music is tied
into my music. So it's all about good management and multitasking and keeping
everything together. Making it all go hand-in-hand."

Justin Timberlake has
attributed his success to his colleagues. In an interview with Refinery 29,
JT explained the key to a long-lasting career and said, "Collaboration.
Sometimes a producer and an artist get together and they make magic, like Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson, and sometimes a
director and an actor like Marty
Scorsese and Robert De Niro
get together and they make magic." Justin went on to say, "I do think
a lot of it is about chemistry. I do think movies are a director's medium and
music is a producer's medium. You could liken my chemistry with Timbaland to Scorsese and De Niro. I
don't want to sound conceited but I do believe that the chemistry is
there." He continued, "Every time we get together we make something
I've never heard. I think it's always interesting. I'm going to have to pay for
that comment. I know somebody's going to have to throw it in my face.
Everything we're talking about is collaboration. One person doesn't make a
movie great, but a bunch of people can make a movie sh*tty."
