Willow Smith to cover Fresh Prince?; Rihanna's single, Elton John's a dad

By David Malitz

- Might Willow Smith cover her dad's famous song, "Parents Just Don't Understand"? Maybe, she says. The song is obviously not about using your offspring to build on an already-massive fortune.

- In domestic news: Rihanna is single. Elton John is a dad. Lily Allen is engaged.

- The Village Voice talked to the mystery person behind the highly-entertaining @Discographies Twitter account.

The lead reads: "In domestic news: Rihanna is single."

The story, however, reads: "Rihanna and Matt Kemp have called it quits, a source close to the singer revealed. The pair, who dated for almost a year, reportedly split in the past few weeks."

They were dating; they weren't married to each other; and, in fact, she wasn't married while she was dating Mr. Kemp. She was, before they broke up, single, just as single as she was while dating Mr. Kemp.

Why not a lead or headline that said headline that reads: Rihanna breaks up with boyfriend. Wouldn't that be more accurate? Or do we consider people who are going out with other people to be...married? Meaning that if they break up they're, what, divorced as well as single?
