Take a look at why we're drinking our coffee hot, black and strong:

  • Ever year, Forbes puts out a list of "The World's Most Powerful Celebrities," and of course we all know who usually tops the list — Oprah! But surprisingly, she's been knocked off her throne by Lady Gaga. Oprah came in at number two earning an estimated $290M last year. Other notable rankings include Tiger Woods at #7, LeBron James at #10, Kobe Bryant at #14, Tyler Perry at #19, Beyonce at #29 and  Usher at #32. [Forbes]

  • University of Connecticut star Maya Moore is the first female basketball player to ever be endorsed by Nike Jordan brand. At the age of 22, she falls in line behind a long list of notable names, including Derek Jeter, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul. [Black Voices]

  • Joe Jackson is in Cannes, France promoting a new fragrance. The men's cologne is apparently called "Tribute," while the women's fragrance is called "Legend." No word on when these scents will be available, but would you buy them anyway? [Eurweb]

  • Though Chris Brown celebrated his birthday on May 5th, he's still partying! He and girlfriend Karrueche Tran and a few of his friends recently took over Disneyland. Awww. [Radar Online]

  • 50 Cent has signed up to be in another movie. He will reportedly play a role in an adaptation of Dean Koontz's bestselling novel, "Odd Thomas." Gugu Mbatha-Raw is also said to be participating in the project. [Eurweb]

  • Ever since Tiger Woods' sex scandal broke, it's been down hill for the golf star. He recently fell out of the top 10 world golf ranking, for the first time in over 10 years. He is now ranked at #11. [Bossip]

  • Shannon Brown is doing some serious rumor control today. He tweeted to clear up rumors that he did not sleep with Sylvia Lopez Castro: "OK let me put a end to this right now before it goes any further. I DID NOT SLEEP WITH @paugasol woman!! First and last time addressing it." [Eurweb]
