Rihanna still has a soft spot for Chris Brown -- or at least gets a little weepy over the hole he left in her life after he beat her in the face the night before the Grammys in February 2009. "I lost my best friend," she told Oprah Winfrey tearfully in an interview to air Sunday night on OWN. "Everything I knew switched in a night, and I couldn't control that.

Chris Brown will issue his sixth album, “X,” on July 16. Brown announced the release -- originally set for later this summer -- on Twitter late Monday, and paired the announcement with a new track, “I Can't Win.” The new track, which he said won't be included on “X,” shows the singer pining over a fading relationship (cue Internet-fueled Rihanna breakup speculation in 3, 2, 1...). "Tell me what did I do to make you hate me so much / Why are you angry all the time / Why don't you want to ride for me / We used to make love/ When you called I would follow / Now the only thing you love is a bottle / The only thing you got left is a shadow," he sings.
