Perry mentioned he feels guilty about causing Oprah so much pain.

Check out why we're having Nutella on a little toast with our brew:

• Oprah turned 59 earlier this week and welcomed a host of gifts from friends. However, it was a large pot of flowers Tyler Perry sent that caused Oprah to strain her back. Perry took to his Facebook to share how guilty he felt. "I like to send really large flowers arrangements to people for whatever occasion," wrote Perry. "Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke! Feel better Oprah… Next year I'm sending her one rose." [Facebook]

• The 2013 Grammy performance line-up continues to grow. Alicia Keys is the latest superstar to be added to the show. She will join Maroon 5 for a special duet. Justin Timberlake and Rihanna are also set to perform. [TGJ]

• Last year, Sylvia Rhone made headlines when she announced a partnership with Epic records. Yesterday, Rhone announced that her newly formed company, Vested in Culture, will launch a number of up-and-coming artists' careers from a number of genres. [Hollywood Reporter]
