See why we're nibbling on a little fruit with our morning coffee:

  • Michael Ealy recently landed the leading role in the upcoming film, "Underworld 4: New Dawn." This time around he plays a vampire hunting detective — sexy right? No word on when production will begin, but congrats to Ealy for landing such a big role! [Black Voices]

  • Legendary actress Della Reese won't be playing an angel for her next role. She's signed up to play a "mean and manipulative" character in Marc Cherry's newest venture "Hallelujah" — a show about a community caught between good and bad forces. [Eurweb]

  • Though Chris Brown is set to release his newest album "F.A.M.E." on March 22nd he already set his sights on his next project. "I'm coming out with another album six months later," he told a crowd of fans who came out to listen to "F.A.M.E." He's certainly going to be music's busy bee this year. [That Grape Juice]

  • While visiting down under, an Aussie paper spoke with Rihanna about whether or not her concerts are too sexy. "Everybody has their own opinion. But everything isn't so literal. On tour, I like to have fun with my costumes. But I've always been risque with my costumes it's fun silhouettes and designs," she told The Sunday Times. [Urban Daily]

  • Unique rapper Santi Gold has signed a new deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation label. Congrats on the management change. Can't wait to hear exciting new music from the Brooklyn native. [Eurweb]

  • All signs are pointing to Kanye West maturing right before our very eyes. He reportedly wasn't allowed in a few Paris fashion shows last week and much to our surprise, he didn't tweet a rant or say an angry word! Instead he tweeted a happy photo himself surrounded by fans. We love it! [Pop Eater]

  • Who doesn't love a good cover? Janelle Monae did a fantastic cover of Lauryn Hill and Kanye West. It's just what you need this Tuesday morning. [Vibe]
