A felony assault charge filed against singer Chris Brown in Washington, D.C., over the weekend could mean a judge may determine he violated probation in his Los Angeles conviction for assaulting Rihanna. If he is found to have violated probation, he could be sentenced to serve up to four years in jail, officials say. The R&B singer and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were arrested early Sunday at the W Hotel and are due in court Monday on the charges, according to Washington Metro police spokesman Anthony Clay.

Katy Perry had come to dance. On a recent afternoon the pop superstar was at a Burbank rehearsal studio, fortifying herself with a salad before diving into four hours of sweaty physical movement - a not-so-dry run for a handful of performances in which she'd be doing more choreography than at any point in her career. Perry, known for bubbly, fun-loving hits such as "I Kissed a Girl" and "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," was dressed for a workout: black tights, black sneakers, a ripped-up T-shirt with two cats pictured on it. (Big cat lady, Katy Perry.)

Pop star Rihanna has been busy in the beauty arena lately. After her second clothing and accessories collection for British retailer River Island hit stores Sept. 12, the songstress started rolling out her fourth fragrance, Rogue by Rihanna, late last month. And her third makeup collection for MAC Cosmetics, RiRi Hearts MAC, launched Thursday at all MAC locations and maccosmetics.com . Encased in rose gold packaging, the 20-piece fall RiRi Hearts MAC line ($16.50 to $44) includes all the essentials for a dramatic, smoky eye: eyeshadow quads in two cocoa-based colors, black mascara and liquid eyeliner, brow liners and two sets of flirty false lashes. To help imitate the star's standout pout, there are lip pencils and lipsticks in nude, frosty orange, dark plum and RiRi Woo crimson red -- a shade that sold out in three hours online when it was introduced in May and now also appears in the form of a high-gloss Lipglass. A shimmery golden cream base, blushes in bronze, copper and coral, and two makeup brushes complete the mix. A fourth RiRi Hearts MAC collection is slated to launch in December, reportedly adding makeup bags, nail polish and other products in pearly white packaging to the line. In a spiked glass bottle with a stingray-like texture on the cap, the new Rogue by Rihanna eau de parfum (from $18 for a rollerball applicator to $69 for a 4.2 oz bottle)
