Rihanna was confronted by Australia’s Hamish and Andy who insist she stole their idea for a song. Last time she was on the show the radio hosts jested with Rihanna about how she comes up with ideas for songs: “If you think of a tune instead of humming something in the morning do you call Jay Z and go ‘Rapapapa?’”
The hosts quickly went all legal: “By the way if we here “Rapapapa” in one of your songs we’re going to know where you got it from.”
Rihanna promised she wouldn’t steal the tune but, lo and behold, a sneakily similar sound is in “Man Down.” Embarrassing! Thankfully, the radio hosts were forgiving but suggested they re-release the song as a collaboration.
Watch it here:

Harry Styles talked to VEVO in a private interview about his bromance with Louis Tomlinson and about how their friendship is so serious that they became roomates in London. Aw! Harry Styles + Louis Tomlinson = Larry Stylinson. “We get on really well,” he said. Since we started in the X Factor house me and Louis had always said we wanted to move in together and that was pretty much it. It just kind of happened.”

Popeater reports that the Australian tax payer will be picking up a large part of the bill, roughly $3 million ($2.7M USD). The money will come from Quantas Airlines and the annual tourism budget, according to the nation’s tourism minister.
“I think it’s money well spent,” Martin Ferguson told reporters after making the announcement in Sydney. “This truly represents an amazing opportunity to showcase Australia, the warmth and hospitality of our people and the depth and breadth of everything our country has to offer visitors from around the world.”
