Yes, Yes! We are all guilty of it. When times get tough Jack Daniels and Crown Royal are always our quick heroes. So is Rihanna turning to the bottle to hide from all her recent miseries? Well, she has been spotted out more frequently these days since abusive attacks and kinky videotapes have emerged with still boyfriend Chris Brown.

While in New York City recently to discuss film projects, Rihanna was spotted with singer Brandy in the wee hours in black sunglasses and laughing hysterically. She was also spotted hitting up the social seen with Jay-Z and Beyonce. Insiders say Rihanna is still emotionally fragile, vulnerable and willing to cling to Chris. “This whole beating incident is terribly humiliating for her. She’s already traumatized and will do anything to make it all go away as quickly as possible” explains the insider. Does that mean a quick alcohol fix? The new scandal of the sex tapes has insiders extremely worried that this negative publicity may very well push Rihanna over the edge and straight to the booze!

Black Eyed Peas Beg Fergie to Return?

Fergie who’s real name is Stacy Ferguson separated from the group, The Black Eyed Peas late in 2006 to embark on a solo career which turned out to be quite successful. She has gone to record and release a top charting album titled “The Dutchess” which has had a few hit singles. The gorgeous former Pea also got engaged and then married to hunky actor Josh Duhamel in January 2009. The only other former Black Eyed Pea member to cause a stir in the music world is rapper Will.I.Am who also went off to explore his own solo career.

Recently, The Black Eyed Peas have decided to regroup and release a new album. They have already started recording and have a single circulating called “Boom Boom Pow”. The LP labeled “The E.N.D” (an after listening to the single this very well could be ‘the end’ for the group) should be expected to be released in June 2009. But, not all members were excited to start this album so has been rumored. Fergie has had such success on her own with her own hit album and with her star studded wedding, why would she want to go back? Well, from what’s been running around the rumor mill, there was a lot of persuasion in getting Fergie-Ferg to get onboard. Perhaps the key was in the form of more dollar signs or perhaps it was a pity favor? Either way she was persuaded and will be on the LP. To be honest, “Boom Boom Pow’s” techno vibe and childish lyrics is not really impressing the earlobes. I think The Black Eyed Peas described their new innovation for their new album “The E.N.D” in their old song labeled “Lets Get Retarded”!
