Rihanna, Drake lead 2012 VMA nominations with five each, Lady Gaga snubbed

It’s the year of Rihanna and Drake at the MTV VMA awards.

The two-time collaborators (and on-and-off exes) lead all nominees with five a piece, including Video of the Year.  And for added drama, they’ll both be competing against Chris Brown in separate categories; Rihanna goes head-to-head with Brown for Best Choreography and Drake faces Brown for Best Male Video wearing one of his famous Drake shirts. (Rihanna is also featured guest in Drake’s heavily nominated “Take Care” as well as Coldplay’s “Princess of China,” which has two nominations.)

Runner-up Katy Perry earned four nods, while The Throne’s Jay-Z and Kanye, Beyoncé, Coldplay, M.I.A. and Frank Ocean all walked away with three.

Left off the list entirely? Last year’s pseudo-host Lady Gaga — even though both her “Marry the Night” and “Yoü and I” videos were eligible.

This year’s ceremony will take place on Sept. 6 at the Staples Center in L.A. See the full list of 2012 VMA nominees after the jump:

Chris Brown isn't retiring, but still doesn't like Drake

Chris Brown certainly has a hard time getting people to understand him, doesn’t he?

His new release Fortune hits store shelves tomorrow, and while accepting his BET Award for Best Male R&B on last night’s telecast, C. Breezy confused a few people by alluding to the fact that it might be his final entry.

“My last album that’s coming out in two days … I just want to thank all my fans. It’s dedicated to y’all. This one’s for y’all, man, I appreciate everything.”

But according to his reps, Brown merely misspoke and has no plans on bailing out of the music business.

Apparently, he also has no intentions of stepping away from the beef business either. READ FULL STORY

Hoopster Tony Parker sues club for injury suffered in Chris Brown/Drake melee

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is suing a New York City club and its operators for $20 million over a scratched retina he says he suffered during a fight involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake’s entourage. The suit was filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Thursday. It says the W.i.P club in SoHo and its operators were negligent in security and supervision, which allowed the fight to take place.

Chris Brown, his girlfriend, and his bodyguard were among eight injured during the fight inside the club last week. Police say members of Drake’s entourage stopped Brown as he was leaving. The fight escalated and bottles were thrown.

There was no answer at phone numbers listed as affiliated with those named in the lawsuit.

Police say Drake not facing arrest in bar brawl case, despite reports

Despite reports to the contrary, singer Drake is not facing arrest stemming from a Wednesday night brawl at a New York City night club, EW confirms with the NYPD.

“There have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing,” the NYPD told EW via phone, adding that reports about Drake currently being pursued are inaccurate.

The rumor mill continues to churn this afternoon, several days after the singer was present at a night club fight that resulted in Chris Brown being cut in the face. A statement from Drake’s camp later claimed he did not take part in the altercation.

Chris Brown's camp has reportedly given NYPD 'physical evidence' implicating Drake in bar fight

The bottle-throwing fight heard ’round the world is still raging on.

Last we left the back-and-forth over how and why (and if) Chris Brown and Drake got into a 4 a.m. bar brawl that resulted in Brown getting cut in the face, we’d been told by sources that A) Drake was not involved in the fight and B) Meek Mill was involved in the fight.

But twist! TMZ reports that Brown’s lawyer has apparently presented the NYPD with “physical evidence” which allegedly shows Drake was involved in the melee (also known in the rap world as snitching), while Brown himself spoke with detectives. He is being treated as “a witness and a victim,” cops told TMZ.

Drake’s camp is cooperating with police as well, but they’ve remained largely silent since releasing their Drake-absolving statement yesterday.

Chris Brown's face cut; NYPD confirms altercation between Brown's and Drake's entourages -- UPDATE

If you ever see Chris Brown and Drake at the same club, close your tab immediately!

Both the NYPD and Brown’s Twitter have confirmed that Breezy and Drizzy were involved in a violent altercation at a Manhattan nightclub at around 4 a.m. last night/this morning, reports TMZ.

No arrests were made (both stars had fled the scene by the time the cops showed up), but five were taken to the hospital for minor injuries, and Brown himself apparently got cut in the face. The singer tweeted an image of his gash as evidence, but has since taken down the picture. He also took down the accompanying message, which read:

Three new Justin Bieber tracks leak, with guests Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Big Sean: Hear them here

Justin Bieber’s rap collaborations: Collect them all!

Last week, we had a chance to hear Believe‘s Ludacris-featuring “All Around the World.” But hold your breath, Beliebers: the album’s other three rapper-infused tracks have hit the ever-eager internets.

Here’s the roll call: the Nicki Minaj duet “Beauty and a Beat,” the Drake collab “Right Here,” and the Big Sean-assisted “As Long As You Love Me” — which, it should be noted, is not a cover of the 1997 Backstreet Boys hit of the same name. We still don’t know if we’re sad about that or not.

Give ‘em all a listen in the videos below. UPDATE: The leaked songs have been pulled, per request from Bieber’s record label.

Drake and a hedge-fund billionaire, sitting in a (Twitter) tree: Today in viral weirdness

Ever wonder how the other 1 percent lives? Thanks to Drake and Texan oil tycoon-turned-wind enthusiast T. Boone Pickens, we now know that the megarich are just like us — and by just like us, we mean that they also have free Twitter accounts.

The Canadian Degrassi star-turned-rap star and the swift-boating billionaire recently exchanged a high-profile series of tweets concerning the most obvious thing they have in common: obscene wealth.

It all began when the oft-confessional Drake tweeted the late-night/early-morning lament, “The first million is  the hardest.”

Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift pen song for 'Believe'

Apparently Taylor Swift wasn’t too upset about getting Punk’d by Justin Bieber recently. The post-teen princess teamed up with the Canadian wunderkind to write a song for his next album, Believe. Per MTV News, Swift will be a little bit country to Bieber’s a little bit zebra pants, though there’s no word on whether she provided vocals on the track, à la Hunger Games megahit “Safe and Sound,” or if she’ll simply take a writing credit.

Swift joins a roster of heavy hitters on the collab, including Kanye West and Drake. Said Bieber, “With my music, it doesn’t only stay in a box. It’s so out there. Everything is so different and that’s why I’m so happy with this album.” “Boyfriend,” Bieber’s first single from Believe, peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the singer recently sent shivers down the spines of his followers when news of collaborations with Carly Rae Jepsen and One Direction hit the Internet.

Drake drops videos featuring Rihanna, Lil Wayne, and his own bar mitzvah: Watch them here

Under the cover of darkness, Drake released not one but two music videos last Friday night, quickly turning G.O.O.D. Friday into Double Drake Day including him wearing another Drake shirt he’s so popular for.

One of the clips is the arty  “Take Care,” the Rihanna-featuring title track off Drizzy’s latest album, featuring the pair giving one another moody embraces and jumping around in slow motion, alongside a bull and a bird (metaphors for the singers? Maybe, I dunno) also doing slo-mo stuff, with intercuts of snowy nature vistas.

The second video, “HYFR,” is much more festive, kicking off with vintage footage of a young Aubrey “Drake” Graham becoming a man at his bar mitzvah. What follows is his re-bar mitzvah, full of celebration, cake, and Lil Wayne with a panda head.

Check out both videos below:
