Check out why we're sipping on iced vanilla lattes this morning:

  • Rihanna has earned her 10th #1 single! That's a record! She now ties both Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder — who both have 10 #1 singles in their pockets. Her "S&M" remix featuring Britney Spears sent it over the top, and she's quickly gaining speed on Mariah Carey's 18-record count and the Beatles' 20. Riri also earned 10 number-one songs faster than any other artist in history. [TGJ]

  • Diddy is being sued once again — when will he catch a break? According to reports, a photographer claims Diddy's bodyguards allegedly attacked him following last year's BET Hip Hop Awards. Jabari Tilgham maintains that he was hurt while trying to take pics of Diddy at a party. [Perez Hilton]

  • With money comes silly spending. Mariah Carey reportedly dropped $100K on a her brand new nursery. According to the Life & Style article, the couple spared no expense at their Bel-Air mansion — picking out a $30K crib. [The Boom Box]

  • You might not believe the reason why Jill Scott shed 60 pounds. According to the NY Post, she was overheard saying she lost the weight so she could dress like a porn star. "I'm just trying to fit into a catsuit like Vanessa del Rio, the porn star," she supposedly said. [NY Post]

  • Amber Rose is talking about her new reality show with VH1. It's called "Behind Her Shades" and will focus on her running a vintage sunglasses shop, in addition to capturing moments of her family and life. Will you be watching? [The Urban Daily]
