Rihanna and rumored new love Matt Kemp have certainly not acted like they're "just friends, "but she says she's single and will be at the Grammys solo tonight.

So what the heck is going on with this hot, alleged couple here?

Rihanna Armani Ad

A source close to Rihanna and Matt Kemp say the baseball star isn't exactly thrilled about the amount of media attention he has gotten since they began dating.

Dating a global music star, did he expect to be under the radar?

Matt is upset given "the negative publicity he's received over the last couple weeks." Does that imply he's the one sitting out the Grammy Awards by choice?

Rihanna and Matt Kemp sure act like a couple.

It's all good, though, the source says. Rihanna is cool with flying stag, but at the same time, "they are very much together and unfazed by recent events."

The negative attention and "recent events" would be rumors of Kemp's past with an ex-girlfriend and media outlets even comparing him to Chris Brown.

Kemp probably would have been happy to accompany Rihanna to the Grammy Awards if "this other nonsense" had not happened, an insider dished.

But, because things did, "He wouldn't want to take anything away from her having a perfect evening." Sounds like a pretty gentlemanly move to us.

Even better? Rihanna and Matt Kemp are set rendezvous next weekend in Miami for the Super Bowl. So all is well in hot, denied relationship land.

They may dress very differently, but Lady GaGa and Robert Pattinson have something in common:

Each has been immortalized as a comic book hero.

Bluewater Productions has come out with a preview of its new line, Fame. The first installment featured GaGa, while the latest will focus on the world's most popular fake vampire.

This 32-page novel doesn't come out until May, but as the Web's foremost source for Twilight Saga news and gossip, THG has an early look at R. Patt in this new form:

Comic Book Rob

The issue delves into the celebrity's music, modeling and film roles. Said author Kim Sherman:

"I chose to conceptualize A-lister Robert Pattinson from a unique perspective, immersing the reader into the life of the talented actor beyond his most famous role."

Will you buy this comic book when it comes out? Or are we inching dangerously close to overexposure for the handsome star?

One of the most touching moments from Michael Jackson's memorial service in July was the brief speech by his daughter, Paris, to her beloved, late father.

Tonight, Paris and brothers Prince Michael and Prince Michael II (a.k.a. Blanket) will be at the Grammy Awards and speak during a tribute to the King of Pop.

Vintage Michael Jackson

E! reports that Michael's surprisingly normal, well-adjusted children will be on stage during a tribute to the icon to "read some sort of speech" about him.

Several other members of the Jackson family are already planning to be in the audience at Los Angeles' Staples Center for the music industry's big night.

Michael Jackson's children at his memorial service.

On top of Prince, Paris and Blanket, Céline Dion, Carrie Underwood and Usher are among those who will be participating in the Jackson tribute this evening.

Michael's pop star sister Janet Jackson presided over a muscial tribute to Michael Jackson, who passed away in June, at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

We'll be very interested to see the children take part in this evening's tribute, which will honor perhaps the most successful and influential artist of all time.

First, Virgina. Now, the entire country!

Caressa Cameron was crowned Miss American 2010 last night, beating out a field of 52 other contestants and pocketing $50,000 for the honor.

In June, Cameron earned the Miss Virginia title on her fourth attempt. At the time, the 22-year-old communications major said her platform would focus on AIDS education.

"I lost an uncle to AIDS, and my family also helped care for a foster child with juvenile AIDS," Caressa said. "I really think our school systems do a wonderful job educating students about AIDS. But young people have developed an apathetic attitude toward this disease and feel this can't affect them."

Mario Lopez hosted last night's annual event in Las Vegas. Miss California took first runner-up, while Miss Louisiana rounded out the top three.

Below, watch Cameron take on a Beyonce single during the competition.

He's probably the only American Idol in history to be remembered more for his physical state than his singing voice.

That's what happens when you audition with two broken wrists.

Indeed, Tyler Grady fell out a tree soon before he tried out for the show in Boston. The result? A memorable rendition of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On." He received approval for Hollywood from all four judges.

Rumored to be one of this season's 24 semifinalists, Grady is a 19-year old from Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

He's the lead singer for a rock band called Wailing Waters. It's actually won a trio of battle of the bands competitions over the year: the Mayfair Festival Band Battle, Croc Rock Band Battlefest and Nazareth Day Battle of the Bands.

Watch Grady's Idol audition below and grade his chances to become the next champion.

Celebrity style showdowns don't get much more risque than this!

Lace is all the rage these days, or at least something a trio of glamorous gals we know dabble in. Gossip Girl star Blake Lively, who's known for sexy fashion on TV, and Madonna kept things a bit more demure than Lady Gaga, who went all out.

Then again, that's hardly surprising, and we've seen Lady Gaga pictures that are far more revealing. For her, this is par for the course ... maybe even tame.

Who looked sexiest in their raciest, laciest getup? Vote below ...

Blake, Madonna, Gaga

Who looked the most luscious in lace?

Actor Rip Torn was arrested on Friday night for allegedly breaking into a Connecticut bank intoxicated ... and armed with a loaded revolver, obviously.

Torn allegedly forced his way inside the Litchfield Bancorp building, setting off an alarm, state police from the Troop B barracks in North Canaan said.

When the police responded to the alarm around 9:40 p.m. they found Torn "with a loaded revolver and was highly intoxicated," according to officials.

The actor, 78, was taken into custody without incident, and is being held there on a $100,000 cash bond and is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

Rip Torn Mug Shot

This Rip Torn mug shot is actually from his previous drunk driving arrest in N.Y. State. Still, it's an all-time classic. Look at this guy! Dude, take it easy. Yeesh.

Authorities say Rip will be charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree criminal mischief. Who does this guy think he is, DMX?

He had two previous drunken driven charges against him in New York.

He was acquitted in a 2004 case and, in a second drunk driving case (see above), he pleaded guilty in 2007 to a lesser charge of being ability impaired.

Torn, a resident of Salisbury, Conn., is an award-winning actor in film and theater with more than 50 years of work under his belt. Recently, he has appeared in Dodgeball, August, Happy Tears, The Golden Boys and even TV's 30 Rock.

According to Jay Photoglou, Gretch Rossi is more than a Real Housewife of Orange County.

She's also a real, giant, big, fat liar, reads a lawsuit filed this week.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

The litigation stems from Rossi and Photoglou's supposed relationship. The photographer says he and Rossi began dating in 2008 and that she told him she was acting as a caregiver to her terminally ill “ex-boyfriend friend, Jeff Beitzel.”

However, once Gretchen landed a spot on the Bravo series, she denied she was involved with Jay and played up her relationship with Betzel.

The lawsuit claims that Rossi was “intimately involved with Photoglou the entire time the show filmed Rossi’s first season” and is charging the spoiled non-housewife for damaging his reputation by calling him a liar, a drunk and a thief. It cites libel and slander and five other counts.

This isn't the first time Gretchen has been involved in a scandal.

She's been caught posing nude online and she's planning a painful singing career. If Photoglou wins his lawsuit, perhaps he can put a gag order on Rossi's vocal chords. Forever.

This just in:

The Game is NOT father of Tila Tequila's baby. Which makes sense. Seeing how that certified nut job isn't actually pregnant.

Yesterday, Tila Tweeted obvious hints that the rapper (whose real name Jayceon Taylor) was her imaginary baby's daddy. Last night, however, The Game posted a Twitter message - like only The Game can - which seemingly denied this accusation:

Just left TMZ settin the record straight, my gyrl aint like that Tila Tequila sh!t !

Case closed, right? HA! Wrong...

Tila has perfected the strategy of making crap up, and then blogging about the subsequent fallout in order to stay in the news. Her Tweets in response to The Game's denial?

  • I CAN STILL ABORT MY BABY IF I WANT TO, SINCE GAME IS NOT GOING TO STEP IT UP & TAKE HIS RESPONSIBILITY, BUT I AM NOT GOING 2 KILL MY BABY!!
  • GAME IS THE MOST TALKED ABOUT HIP HOP ARTIST IN BLOGS TODAY! WHY? CUZ HE HAS GOOD MUSIC? NOPE! CUZ HE IS ASSOCIATED TO TILA TEQUILA! PUNK!
  • I will raise my baby just fine without him. Deadbeat Dad! Me & MY baby will be just fine. Im going to the Grammy Party now.
  • The doctors were saying "we're so sorry he's doing this 2 you. You don't deserve this but you're going to be just fine"
  • ppl say I lied about everything. HOW? The said I lied about being pregnant. GUESS WHAT? I AM PREGNANT! I TOLD U PEOPLE I NEVER LIE!

Oh... wait. Tila says she is pregnant? Nevermind. We take everything back in that case.

She doesn't have the kind of star power as George Clooney, so Kim Kardashian can't exactly organize a telethon.

But the reality TV veteran can use her expertise to assist the victims of this month's earthquake in Haiti. No, she won't donate the proceeds of a new sex tape to the cause.

Instead, she'll put her connections in the fashion world to important use.

"We're doing huge eBay charity auctions," Kardashian told E! News "I have an eBay store called Kim's Closet. Me, Kourtney, Khloé, my mom, Reggie, and I think Lamar have all put up a whole bunch of auctions that launch next week, and it all goes to Haiti. It's our shoes and our clothes. Get cute clothes and help out Haiti."

We criticize Kim (A LOT) for her dangerous diet and self-serving agenda, but we have nothing but positive things to say about this course of action.

Kim's Closet

Meanwhile, Kim's focus is also on the upcoming Super Bowl. Bush's team, the New Orleans Saints, will be taking on the Colts, for whom Kendra Wilkinson's husband Hank Baskett plays.

That's right, forget Drew Brees vs. Peyton Manning. This is a battle of E! stars!

"I haven't talked to Kendra, but we'll both be rooting our men on," said Kardashian. "I'd love to see her and say, 'Hi.' We'll be like rivaling, screaming at each other - screaming for our men."

Just like Kim did on her sex tape with Ray J.
