We all could've guessed that Eminem
has split personalities but lately the rap superstar really has been doing double duty, splitting his time between his solo career (having just headlined Bonnaroo) and his latest project, Bad Meets Evil
. In the new video for 'Space Bound,' the latest single from Em's 2010 blockbuster album, 'Recovery,' we see two versions of the rapper play out alternate scenarios but, ultimately, reach the same fate.
In the video, directed by Joseph Kahn, both versions of Eminem enter a diner -- one sits at a booth with his girlfriend (porn star Sasha Grey) and learns that she's cheating on him, while the other Eminem sits at the counter, alone. Not to spoil the ending, but while the relation between the two Eminem's remains unclear, they are tragically super-connected.
Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?

Shortly after Maroon 5
's Adam Levine reported to the press that Justin Bieber
's competitive streak is so strong, he talked smack to him during what was supposed to be a friendly pickup basketball game, Chris Brown
now reveals that he recently infuriated the pop superstar, by accident, when he was late for a planned collaboration.
"I was all the way on the other side of town handling some business -- girl business -- and I was rushing back, and, by that time, he's like, 'Man, I'm leaving, bro. I did it -- just check it out.'" Brown tells MTV
. "And I ... listened to it and I was like, 'Man, this is crazy.' He's a great kid."
is a mom! After spurring rumors of her childbirth
on the Internet on Wednesday through a seemingly cryptic tweet, the 31-year-old singer -- real name Alecia Beth Moore -- took to Twitter
again on Thursday evening, June 2, to confirm that she gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Willow Sage Hart. This is P!nk's first child and she and her 35-year-old motocross-racing husband, Carey Hart, could not -- as the saying goes -- be happier.

took to the stage at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards this past Sunday (May 22), she gave what was, quite possibly, the performance of her lifetime. It certainly ranks up there among the most memorable in the award show's history. Honored with the Billboard Millennium Award, Beyonce performed her current single, 'Run the World (Girls)' while dancing and interacting with high-tech video projections synced behind her.
Indeed, the word "epic" comes to mind, as it was a dazzling marriage of choreography and technology, the likes of which have rarely been seen on live television. However, some have argued that the word "groundbreaking" might be misleading -- Beyonce's performance may have been unique in its execution, but the basic idea actually came from a performance by Italian pop singer Lorella Cuccerini in 2010. The visuals, dancing and even sequencing are remarkably similar at points. That's no coincidence, nor is it a rip-off. Rather, Beyonce acknowledges the direct influence.
With the end of the world rapidly approaching, at least according to some, Beyonce
's 'Run the World (Girls)' video comes just in time for the songstress to take charge of a dying planet or, you know, at least save the ever-ailing music industry. All hyperbole and joking aside, "Mrs. Z" premiered her hotly anticipated new track and accompanying video -- which, truth be told, does have apocalyptic imagery -- on 'American Idol
' on Wednesday, May 18. Directed by Francis Lawrence ('Water for Elephants
'), the cinematic piece features a side of Beyonce we haven't really seen before. Immediately after the televised broadcast, the video premiered on VEVO -- check it out below.
"It's definitely riskier than something a bit more ... simple," Beyonce told Billboard.com
earlier this week. "I just heard the track and loved that it was so different: it felt a bit African, a bit electronic and futuristic."

It might not mean anything to you that Patrick Chukwuem Okogwu, Jr. performed on a live-stream webcast of 'Live on Letterman' on Tuesday, but maybe you know him better by his stage name: Tinie Tempah
. The winner of this year's prestigious Brit Awards for Best Breakthrough Act and Best Single ('Pass Out') took to the fabled stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater at NBC Studios in New York on May 17 to perform his hits both new and, well, um... new.
After scoring big in the U.K. last year, Tempah set his sights on the U.S. this spring, hitting grand slams with a live taste-making, perhaps even career-breaking, performance at Coachella this past April and a debut U.S. single, 'Written in the Stars,' that American fans sure have latched onto. And for his next single, 'Til I'm Gone,' Tempah paired up with another current heat-seeker: Wiz Khalifa. Of course, early birds and club goers will recall Tempah's SMS-friendly 'Miami 2 Ibiza' hit that was further propelled in the dance scene via a video
and collaboration with Swedish House Mafia last fall.

Canadian rocker Bryan Adams
(that's with a B -- not to be confused with a certain, more volatile, indie rocker
) has had his share of accomplishments in his 51 years, but now he gets to add fatherhood to that list. His personal assistant -- and longtime girlfriend -- Alicia Grimaldi is the proud mom.
Adams tells People Magazine
that Grimaldi "helped me start my foundation years ago and it looks like she'll be running the family now!" Their newborn daughter, Mirabella Bunny, was born on April 22. "She arrived, like all good Easter bunnies, on Easter Friday," he says.
And while Adams is most well known for his string of radio hits from the 1980s -- including the omnipresent 'Summer of '69' -- his professional career is as healthy as his new home life. In fact, in March he received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We wish mom, dad and baby all the best.
