CELEBS IN BRIEF: Room for Chris Brown on Rihanna’s new album

  • Written by CNN

It wouldn't be a Rihanna album if it didn't get everyone talking.

After collaborating with Chris Brown on two remixes earlier this year – and rekindling a friendship with him following the dissolution of their relationship in 2009 – RiRi's also revealed that fans will hear him on her new album.

The singer released the official tracklist for her upcoming release, "Unapologetic," on Tuesday (Nov. 6), and among collaborations with artists like Eminem is one with Brown.

The song, perhaps appropriately titled "Nobodies Business," will undoubtedly cause many to read it as "nobody's business."

"Unapologetic" will arrive on November 19.

Jamie Foxx as Spider-Man villain Electro? Maybe

"The Amazing Spider-Man" sequel might've found its villain in Jamie Foxx.

The actor, according to Variety, is in early talks to play the bad guy in the Marc Webb-directed feature. As of now, it looks like producers are hoping to see Foxx as Electro, the alter-ego of Max Dillon who can control electricity.

Foxx has already had a little practice in character. "Dressed up as Electro for Halloween last night," Foxx tweeted last Thursday. "Costume fits well."

Director Webb, in response to Foxx's sly tweet, quipped to the Huffington Post, "I think he's electrifying."

"I can't go into it in too much detail," Webb continued, "except to say that I think Jamie Foxx is one of our great living actors. He's a star, but he's a brilliant character actor. I mean, all of the way back to the days of 'In Living Color,' I think he's done some pretty exceptional work."

PC Jay-Z switches up '99 Problems'

Jay-Z's "99 Problems" underwent an Election Day remix.

The rapper joined Bruce Springsteen at President Obama's election rally in Columbus, Ohio, on Monday, and at first had a bunch of songs planned.

"Then they told me no colorful language, so I brought two songs," he said. "I changed this one up, I have to do it, I'm sorry. I didn't get clearance from the Secret Service, so if they come tackle me on here, y'all can save me."

And with that, Jay, who had us all rhyming about how we had "99 problems but a b**** ain't one" when his "Black Album" arrived in 2003, offered a line of the new version: "If you having world problems I feel bad for you, son. I got 99 problems, but Mitt ain't one."
