Rihanna’s new man, LA Dodger Matt Kemp, seems like a pretty decent guy. He’s no John Mayer, anyway. Matt recently sat down for an interview with FoxSports where he was supposed to be chatting all about baseball, but of course the subject quickly turned to his new lady. Matt definitely acknowledged that he’s been hanging out with RihRih, but like a true gentleman, he didn’t get in to the details.
Hartman: Did you buy [Rihanna] a diamond necklace?
Kemp: (laughter) Come on, guys. Y’all are killing me, man.
Myers: It’s his business … [but] Are you guys dating? Can you clarify that?
Kemp: That’s just a good friend of mine.
Myers: Oh, OK.
Kemp: A very very good friend of mine. And we enjoy hanging out with each other and we’re just having fun.
Hartman: Now is she a baseball fan or…As friends what kind of common interests do you have?
Kemp: She’s a great person that loves to watch basketball. She likes basketball.
Hartman: And you’re a basketball guy, we know that…So you go to games together? You go to Laker games and stuff like that?
Kemp: Yeah, I’ve been to a couple games.
Myers: How did you two meet?
Kemp: How did we meet? (laughter) I thought we were talking about baseball, guys.
Myers: Well, we can. Now Matt you have to be realistic. Look at Lamar Odom. If you’re gonna date somebody who is as attractive, talented, and widely recognized…
Hartman: She’s an amazing girl.
Myers: …That comes with the territory. You know what it’s like being a celebrity in the baseball sense, so this is magnified. Are you ready for all that?
Kemp: Hey, it is what it is. If that’s what it comes with, that’s what it comes with. I’m just gonna continue to keep trying to hit home runs and help my team get to the World Series.
Maybe he’s not the Rude Boy she’s looking for (how freakin’ much do you guys love that song, by the way?), but at least he seems like a decent dude who respects her. That’s the very least that any woman can ask for and I’m not patting the dude on the back for not being a creep, but hey! This is a great turnaround after the whole Chris Brown thing, huh?

You know who needs to disappear? Chris Brown. That fool just cannot help himself. He’s still talking about how the whole “beating up Rihanna” thing was really hard on his reputation and that he’s actually a really nice guy. This morning he did that whole routine for the Mojo in the Morning radio show and he attempted to keep his shit relevant by relating himself to another bro we all hate right now, Tiger Woods.
“I think it’s cool man, I think people always deserve a second chance, and I know if my fans give me a second chance and people give me a second chance..whatever his personal life is and I think this goes for me and him; his personal life is his personal life – like nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on somebody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them—like they might be a fan, or might support what they’re doing but like if he plays golf, like that’s his sport, that’s his hobby, that’s his love, that’s what people love him for. They don’t love him for the other stuff that they talking bout. I think, even with me, like I do music, I sing songs, like I’m an entertainer, I’m a performer, but people make mistakes, I think people have to realize that everybody’s human, and the good thing is if you learn from your mistakes, then, then that’s a part of life, and I think that’s a part of living and learning from mistakes and becoming a better person, and growing from situations, so my hat is off to him—I support him, I hope he gets back on the field and does his thing, cause he is the best at it.”
Me me me me me. Jesus Christ. This guy’s head is so far up his own rectum that he doesn’t even realize what a self-involved moron he sounds like. He needs to be locked away in a closet until he gets the heck over himself. True.

There’s an 18 second preview out of Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” video and it looks really good. There’s kind of a 90s theme going on with the hair, make up and black-and-white background. And also, there’s a zebra with balloons tied to it’s head. And the song is one of the best of her new album. Thank goodness she did something about that hair.

Everyone was at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party last night. Everyone! Kelsey Grammer was there and he doesn’t even make music! The cool thing about this party though is that I feel like we got a little taste of what the fashion is going to be like tonight at the Grammys. In my personal opinion, the stars always look best at the Grammys. It’s a much more casual award show and rock stars and musicians are less likely (or more likely, depending on who we’re talking about) to make a huge to-do about their outfits. From these photos, I’m thinking we’re going to see a lot of distressed pieces and sparkles tonight.

Last night, George Clooney cobbled together a phone bank whose average adjusted gross income was higher than Haiti’s combined gross national product in all of the 90′s. The celebrity-manned phone lines and musical performances by Madonna, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Chris Martin, Bono, Jay-Z, Rihanna and more, pulled in over $16 Million dollars.
Did any of you dial-a-celeb and phone in a donation? If you missed your chance, you can still contribute by preordering any of the songs performed last night on iTunes.
I applaud the stars’ desire to contribute to a good cause, but groaned when Beyonce inserted “Haiti” into her song “Halo.” I can’t stand it when artists insert words from current events willy-nilly into already established hit songs for the purposes of “tribute”. Bastardizing one of your already established hit singles just seems like such a lazy way out. I cringed when Elton John did it with “Candle in the Wind”, and Beyonce sure as shit ain’t no Elton John.
More telethon clips featuring Robert Pattinson and his facial hair, Madonna, JT, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, and Xtina after the jump.
Editor’s Note: As of this morning, the news services have upgraded the amount of money raised by the telethon to an estimated $57 Million!!

Hey, guys? I love Rihanna a lot, I think she’s great and I really have never said anything like this about her before, but what the hell is with her hair these days? I know she was in vacation mode for awhile and that explained the ode to Carrot Top that she had going on completely. I would never blame a woman for taking a time off of grooming to just do “you”, but I’m actually starting to really wonder here. 1) Was that color achieved on purpose and if so, what was the look they were going for? It’s a slightly more orange tint than her skin tone, typically not someone’s best color. 2) What’s with the cut? She can have the curls, but maybe wait until the cut’s grown out more, or HEY! Maybe not brush it all to the front like that. Maybe some bobby pins or something. She’s better than this hair.
