+ Robyn slayed (as always) during her O Music Awards performance, so much so she said she broke a blood vessel in her eye! She added, “[The show] was not like doing a TV show; it was a concert, in parts. It was weird going on and off, but it was really fun.” (MTV News)

+ Britney Spears turned up the heat on show opener Joe Jonas during their London stop, which was his last for the “Femme Fatale” tour. Watch Brit and dancers give Jonas more than a kiss goodbye with a (sorta) lap dance. (Neon Limelight)

+ Rihanna shares why she chose one album cover over another in her “21 Days To Talk That Talk” webisode. Hint: She says it’s the “most unpretty cover” she’s done (as if that’s possible, Ri). Check it out. (Neon Limelight)

+ Watch Justin Bieber and Boyz II Men bring holiday spirit to “Dancing With The Stars” during their performance of “Fa La La.” You can also check out Bieb’s doing “Never Say Never.” (Neon Limelight)

+ Not a good year for indie rock love. First Sonic Youth‘s Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon called it quits, and now Death Cab For Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard and She & Him‘s Zooey Deschanel announced a separation after two years of marriage. (MTV News)

+ Taylor Swift has been doing rad covers throughout her tour. During her stop in Memphis she added an acoustic rendition of Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River.” Check it here. (Idolator)
