Willow Smith is back with a new music video.

The 11-year old debuted "I Am Me" at last night's BET Awards, an event that handed out hardware to Jay-Z, Beyonce and Chris Brown, among others.

Willow attended the ceremony with brother Jaden and did not win any trophies, but did she make an impression with the following track, which centers on her search for identity and her rally against critics. Lyrics include:

Express myself cause it’s my liberty/I’ve been lookin’ /Your validation is just not that important to me.

Whoever started the Chris Brown-Drake fight at a New York nightclub two weeks ago, the former is dissing the latter hard in a new remixed track, "I Don't Like."

In the remix, which also features The Game, Brown undeniably rips his adversary and references the W.i.P. nightclub brawl between their posses in June.

Here's the Drake diss song, with the lyrics below:

"Ah fu*k ni**a, that's that sh*t I don't like / They throwin' bottles, I'm throwin' models just 'cause I give a bi*ch long pipe," raps Team Breezy's idol.

"I be singin', he be singin', so it's on, fight / But hold up, I ain't give a ni**a no green light / This head up, my bread up, one on one, what you scared, bruh?"

"Matter fact, take care bruh, you a pu**y ni**a / My ni**a Tunechi, yeah that ni**a nice / Shout out to Nicki, man, that ass tight / Them eyebrows, man, them sh*ts is yikes."

"OVO, you overdosed, screamin' YOLO no, I live twice."

Take Care, of course, is the name of Drake's most recent album. Tunechi refers to Lil Wayne and Nicki to Nicki Minaj, whose ass is apparently tight.

Drake, your move bruh.

Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe was detained in Prague this week. He could face 5-10 years in prison for an altercation at a 2010 show that allegedly left a fan dead.

Reports indicate the incident leading to the arrest of Blythe (full name D. Randall "Randy" Blythe) involved a man repeatedly rushing the stage from the crowd.

He was ejected from the stage and later died of head injuries, according to WTVR, the CBS News affiliate in Lamb of God's hometown of Richmond, Virginia.

Lamb of God canceled a show at the Rock Cafe in Prague Thursday after the singer was brought in for questioning; reports differ as to what happened next.

Some sources say Blythe was arrested and charged with "the crime of bodily harm of 4th degree and resulting in the death of a fan." The band's rep denies this.

Randy's brother, Mark Blythe, told WTVR that if manslaughter charge is actually filed, it is "bogus and outrageous and will be dropped immediately."

The band tweeted the hashtag #FreeRandyBlythe late Thursday. Blythe deleted his once extremely active personal Twitter account earlier this summer.

Maria Ferrero, the Grammy-nominated band's publicist, told MTV News that Lamb of God's management will not comment in full until Monday. However:

Whitney Houston passed away four and a half months ago, but the legendary singer has certainly not been forgotten.

She's back in the news now, in fact, because former American Idol champion Jordin Sparks has come out with the music video for "Celebrate," a duet Sparks sings with Whitney in the film Sparkle.

“What we wanted to do was make sure that this was a fun, happy video and just kind of dedicating it to her,” Jordin told Entertainment Tonight. “What better song to leave for people to hear than a song that is so upbeat and just so happy and so encouraging?”

Sparkle opens on August 17 and co-stars Derek Luke, Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick, Goapele and Carmen Ejogo show up in the video, the vocals for which were recorded just a few days before Whitney's tragic passing.

Jack Black took the stage with a Queen cover band in concert on June 23, belting out the lyrics to "Bohemian Rhapsody." Suffice it to say, the guy is awesome.

The actor was at the Protomen show at the Exit/In theater in Nashville, Tenn., when the tribute group broke into the song and asked him to participate.

About three minutes into the classic rock staple, the group called The Muppets star, who's also half of the band Tenacious D, on stage to sing back up vocals.

The crowd went wild. Watch Jack rock the house below:

Take that, Madonna!

In news that absolutely no one finds shocking, Justin Bieber is number-one on this week's Billboard 200 chart, as his new album, "Believe," solid 374,000 copies in its first week of release. That's the biggest debut sales week to date in 2012, surpassing the Material Girl's 359,000 for "MDNA."

The figure also represents a personal best for The Biebs. He previously sold 291,000 albums of "My World 2.0" in April 2010.

Justin, of course, has been anywhere and everywhere this week for promotion. The above still was snapped of him during a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, while he actually stopped for a sing-along with fans prior to making that appearance.

He also engaged in a pretty great Awesome-Off with Jimmy Fallon earlier in the week. You should watch it.

In January, Lana Del Rey made headlines for a Saturday Night Live performance that... well... sucked.

Now, the singer is back in the news for another, retro reason: in the official music video for the track "National Anthem," Del Rey makes like former First Lady Jackie Onassis, while rapper A$AP Rocky - yes, the A$AP Rocky! - portrays a version of JFK.

The seven-minute and 40-second video begins with Del Rey singing "Happy Birthday" to her pretend husband, Marilyn Monroe style, and concludes with his infamous assassination. It's bound to garner a lot of press.

Watch and react now:
