Rihanna is Being Accused of Stealing “[B-word] Better Have My Money”
Rihanna is being accused of ripping off her song “[B-word] Better Have My Money”, but it’s a pretty bogus claim. An artist named Just Brittany released a song last year called “Better Have My Money”. And Brittany’s fans think Rihanna plagiarized her. The problem is that the only similarity between the two songs is the phrase “[B-word] Better Have My Money.” And neither of them invented it, the phrase has been floating around in hip-hop since 1991 when rapper AMG released a song of the same name.

You Could Be Fined $600 If You Approach George and Amal Clooney Near Their Italian Villa
For years, George Clooney has owned a villa at Italy’s Lake Como, but apparently, the people there can’t be trusted to leave him alone. That, or they have a paparazzi infestation. Britain’s “Daily Mail” says the Lake Como town of Laglio has just outlawed approaching George, Amal, and their friends at and around their villas. That also includes trespassing on their land and piloting boats within 100 meters of the coast where their place is. If you violate any of this stuff, you could be fined $600. But supposedly, these are just temporary bans that have been put in place to protect the Clooneys from the paparazzi during George’s 53rd birthday party, which will be happening there. His birthday is on May 6th. It’s unclear when the party is. Get the full story here.

And she further explained that she was lit by black and neon lights. She added, quote, “Let’s all calm down people.” And as much as we love to rip on the Kardashians, she’s right. This is in no way blackface. Not even remotely. If that’s what you see, it’s only because you desperately want to. Get the full story here.
