Burger King Apologizes for Mary J. Blige Chicken Ad

Earlier this week Burger King released a commercial on YouTube featuring Mary J. Blidge singing about a new crispy chicken wrap. Shortly after, the ad drew tons of criticism on Twitter for playing off a stereotype about African-Americans and chicken.

Now Mary J. Blige is doing damage control and explains she never signed off on that version of the controversial fried chicken ad that was blasted on the Internet.

Mary J. tells TMZ, “I agreed to be a part of a fun and creative campaign that was supposed to feature a dream sequence. Unfortunately, that's not what was happening in that clip." She goes on to say, "I understand my fans being upset by what they saw. But, if you’re a Mary fan, you have to know I would never allow an unfinished spot like the one you saw go out."

Rihanna's Late Night Hookup with Ashton

Just last week we were all hearing rumors of a Chris Brown and Rihanna reconciliation. Although they may have been in a "wild love triangle," it appears that Rihanna's got herself a new boy toy: Ashton Kutcher!

It’s no secret Rihanna and Ashton Kutcher have both been through very public messy break ups in the past, but who saw this coming?!

On Tuesday night, Rihanna was photographed by paparazzi getting twisted inside Colony nightclub in Los Angeles. Rih was having a good time with her girl when, she received a text from Ashton Kutcher. Rih IMMEDIATELY left the club at around 12:00, leaving her friend's behind. She then made her way to ASHTON KUTCHER'S house where she was spotted by the paps again! According to TMZ she stayed until 4:00am.

Coincidentally, this late night booty call happened just a day before Chris Brown shared 'Heartbreak' on Twitter— possibly about a Rihanna split! But don't feel too bad for Chris, he's got plenty of company, especially after tweeting/exposing his creepy trouser snake multiple times.

Poor Rih, she's really got a taste for Hollywood's A-List d-bags. Find a real man, girl!

Shocker: 'The Situation' Heads to Rehab

Like most of the ‘Jersey Shore’ crew, Mike Sorrentino a.k.a ‘The Situation’ has been on a non-stop party train since the show debuted on MTV 2 years ago -- drinking and making paid appearances at nightclubs all over the world. Well, it finally got out of control!

TMZ broke the story that Sitch finally checked into rehab for substance abuse after realizing his recreational habits had spun out of control.

Sources close to Sitch have noticed the reality star had been showing signs of substance abuse for a while ... but it was obvious "he was getting worse" as the season went on. Several people noticed he was "acting paranoid" on the set ... and the unusual behavior was evident in certain Season 5 episodes that recently aired on MTV. The signs were especially obvious during the episode when the gang went camping. Sitch can be seen acting jittery, sweating profusely and just acting really bizarre.

A rep for the Situation just contacted TMZ to say they are not confirming that Mike is in rehab ... just that he "has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule."

MTV just announced "Jersey Shore" is returning for a 6th season ,which is scheduled to start shooting this summer. Sources say the cast and crew members on "Jersey Shore" are happy he's getting help and hope that he will be healthy enough to join them for the recently announced Season 6.

Looks like it's time to put the abs and the vodka away. As the saying goes, "It's all fun and games until a Guido goes to rehab." Right?
