George Clooney, Rihanna Play 'Never Have I Ever' On 'Ellen'
It was an odd matchup for certain, but the answers George Clooney and Rihanna gave during a fun game on the "Ellen" show had the talk show host in stitches!

During a rousing game of "Never Have I Ever," Ellen DeGeneres asked the stars a series of revealing questions.

To answer, they had to hold up one side of their paddles to reveal the message "I have" or "I have never."

"Never have I ever texted a nude selfie," DeGeneres questioned the duo.

Clooney and DeGeneres both said no while Rihanna admitted she had sent out nude pics.

Although Clooney did joke and say he sent out photos on Ins...

Guess Who Is Back On Top Of Billboard 200 This Week?

Adele Reclaims No. 1 On Billboard 200 After a Two-Week Break

Both weeks, 25 had to settle for runner-up as opposed to “ruling the roost.” Not this week friends – no sir!

After a two-week break – call it a vacation – Adele returns to a familiar, fitting spot at number one. This week marks the eight nonconsecutive weeks in the penthouse for the British powerhouse....

Rihanna Returns From A 4-year Hiatus With ‘Anti’

2/1/2016 9:00am EST
Review: Rihanna Switches Things Up On 'Anti'
Following an uncharacteristic four-year hiatus, Rihanna returns with the oddest album of her decade-long career, Anti. Unlike previous albums jam-packed with hits, Anti lacks the catchy gems that made her a superstar. Even with a lack of surefire hits, Anti ends up being a compelling listen that will likely have to ‘grown on’ some listeners.

“I got to do things my own way, darling / Will you let me?” Hmm, what’s the best reaction to opener “Consideration” (featuring SZA)? Perhaps WTF is appropriate, considering this is Rihanna like we’ve never seen before. It settles in more with successi...
