The Dredge: Are Rihanna and Chris Brown engaged? (Twitter thinks so)

The very best of the morning’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

#CHRIHANNA: Rihanna wore a diamond ring on her wedding finger while cuddling up to her ever-more-dislikeable boyfriend Chris Brown at the Grammys, sparking frenzied speculation that her decision-making could have worsened even further with an engagement.

Some people were happy:

Some people were sad:

Some people were, well, distracted by other things:

Happily for Rihanna, it doesn’t look like there’s a marriage on the cards – the Sun points out that she’s worn the same ring a load of times. Including while giving the finger to the camera. Standard. (The Sun)

#LAWBENDER: Michael Fassbender and Bradley Cooper hit the town with Jennifer Lawrence and Alice Eve after the BAFTAs. Other than being obviously the best night out ever, Fassbender was TOTALLY PUTTING THE MOVES ON J-LAW.

Michael and Jennifer were locked in conversation for a long time, he was charming the pants off her. even when she was talking to other people at the after party, Jennifer couldn’t keep her eyes off Michael! [...] it’s clear to see there’s a strong physical attraction between them.

Can Lawbender be a thing? Can it? Also, she may be able to tell us whether he is actually a shark. (Radar)

#SO SORRY: Justin Bieber was mad at the Grammys, or something, so he decided to break the internet while they were happening.

He tried to have a live video chat with fans, but the flood of Beliebers was too much for the creaking old world wide web.

So instead he posted a video of himself topless:


Also: Justin’s two younger siblings, who appear in the clip, are called Jazmyn and Jaxon. We are not making this up.

#BEY BEY: Beyoncé’s all over the cover of Vogue like a wet flannel. And she told it she DEFINITELY wants more children after Blue Ivy, which means we may see further Carter kids named after colours and plants. We’re lobbying hard for Mauve Nettle. (Celebuzz)

Please don’t become incapacitated by childbirth before you come to Dublin, Beyoncé.

And the rest of the day’s dirt…

  • Chris Brown got epically photobombed by Ricky off Eastenders in what is probably the greatest image of all time. (The Sun)
  • Victoria Beckham sent her toddler down the catwalk, sort of. (Twitter)
  • Courteney Cox’s daughter had lunch a la Ballyfermot (ie in her pyjamas) (Mail Online)
  • Imogen Thomas must have been mumbling incoherently after giving birth, because her daughter is called Ariana Siena. (Mail Online)
  • 5ive, Atomic Kitten, B*witched, Liberty X and 911 are going on tour. The girls out of B*witched look EXACTLY the same. (The Sun)
