Angry Rihanna to CBS: "[BLEEP] You" for Pulling Song from "Thursday Night Sports"

Rihanna is not pleased about the fact that CBS Sports last week didn't use her song "Run This Town" to kick off Thursday Night Football -- and she now appears to be threatening to stop them from using it this week. She tweeted, "CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F**k you! Y'all are sad for penalizing me for this."  She added, "The audacity..." You may recall that last week, because Ray Rice's team, the Baltimore Ravens, were playing on Thursday Night Football, CBS canceled its plans to use "Run…

Train, Still Rolling After 20 Years, Releases New Album "Bulletproof Picasso"

Train's new album Bulletproof Picasso is in stores today, and considering that 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the band's existence, lead singer Pat Monahan says the album's unusual title is an apt description of their staying power. "The whole album is stories of venturing from a small town to San Francisco," Pat tells ABC News Radio.  "And 'Bulletproof Picasso' --the song -- is about leaving [my hometown of] Pennsylvania and sitting there with my friends and saying, 'Who's got the b***s to do this with me? Who's made of lead paint and bulletproof?'" "Then, what we realized, was that…

Ariana Grande's Mom Wouldn't Let Her Record Song She Wrote at 14: Too Sexual, Said Mom

Ariana Grande seems a lot younger than she actually is -- she's 21, for the record -- but she's actually wise beyond her years.  Maybe a little too wise.  In the new issue of Marie Claire magazine, the singer says she wrote a song when she was 14 that her mom wouldn't let her record because it was just too sexy. "I was 14 years old and ready to make an R&B album," Ariana tells the magazine, recalling her first efforts at music. "I was like, 'Where is that Mary J. Blige collab? Where is that Natasha Bedingfield writing session?…

Remember last year, when Robin Thicke and Marvin Gaye's family got involved in a legal dispute over whether or not Thicke's "Blurred Lines" borrows from Gaye's hit song, "Got to Give It Up?"  Both Thicke and co-writer Pharrell Williams gave testimony about it during depositions in Los Angeles federal court -- testimony in which Thicke not only reveals he didn't really co-write the song, but also admits to drug abuse. According to the deposition, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Thicke admitted he wasn't truthful when he claimed during various interviews that he and Pharrell co-write "Blurred Lines," including an interview with…

Listen to Miley Cyrus Cover a Led Zeppelin Song

After covering The Beatles, Miley Cyrus is taking on another classic British rock band. On Friday, Miley posted to Soundcloud her own version of the Led Zeppelin song "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You," from the band's 1969 self-titled debut album, though Miley titles it "Baby I'm Gonna Leave You."
