Last night Roc Nation artist Rihanna received the first ever American Music Icon Award but Roc Nation head honcho Jay Z was not there to see it...
Instead Jay presented the award to Rihanna in an awkward 3 second video clip before Rihanna's mother Monica Fenty walked out on stage to present the award to her daughter in person.
Meanwhile Jay Z and Beyonce jetted off to Costa Rica for a short vacation before the start of their separate North American tours.
Chris Brown is upset because a judge has denied him use of medicinal marijuana to control his anger...
From Radar Online
Chris Brown is complaining to friends that he should be allowed to take medical marijuana for his anger management issues because it’s legal in California, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The troubled singer — ordered Wednesday to spend three months in rehab after throwing a rock through his mother’s car window whilst in rehab — does not want to continue to use anti-depressent drugs which have been prescribed to him, a source said.
“They make Chris feel very numb and he felt that everything around him was fuzzy,” the insider revealed.
“He felt dull and thirsty all the time. He had been taking medical marijuana for the last several years, until the judge said Chris couldn’t take it beginning last summer. It was just another instance in which Chris felt he was being treated differently because of his celebrity status.
The singer is “really trying to move forward from the incident with Rihanna, but feels it’s just going to haunt him for the rest of his life. He believes if he was allowed to take the marijuana things would dramatically improve in his life, immediately. Chris isn’t the monster everyone thinks he is,” the insider added.

Okay, I get it, when you have money, you will spend it here and there. But would you really drop $4.2 million on a painting? That's what Jay Z did, according to EURweb. At first, an anonymous person bought the 1982 Jean-Michel Basquiat painting called "Mecca" last week and come to find out it was Jay. But Jay may have some ties with the graffiti artist because Jay included the artist's name in his songs. Even on “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” Jay Z references the artist “Picasso Baby,’’ Jay Z gives a nod to Basquiat by rapping, “It ain’t hard to tell, I’m the new Jean-Michel.” But for real, $4.2 milly?
The singer just got confined for 90 days ... but not in jail ... yet.
