The article states that Brown not only called Rihanna to wish her happy birthday last week, but also that the two spent some time together at one of Puff Daddy's (yes, PUFF DADDY - I'm just old school like that) homes.

Then, last week Rolling Stone mused on whether or not the rock world was ready for Limp Bizkit's return.

Some Believe Domestic Violence Might Negatively Affect Rihanna’s Endorsements


Let’s play a little game of pretend, dear readers.

First, imagine you’re the boss of some company. Any company will do. Be creative. Be indulgent. Ever wanted to own Apple? Now you do.

The tantrum that has Americans holding their collective breath today (well, NASCAR fans, anyway) is the latest product of Tony Stewart's notorious temper - a temper that, up until very recently, seemed to be under lock and key thanks to...
