Mushy Monday. People's faces are getting mushed by fists, cake and cameras to start off the day. It's a messy fight and Rihanna wants nothing to do with it between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean. Speaking of a mess, you can only wonder how much of a celebration mess Rick Ross is going to make on his birthday today. HAPPY B-DAY BAAAAWSE! Since we're on the topic of boss moves, what could be more of a Cinderella story for ex-NY Knick Jeremy Lin than to have his own documentary? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Turn It Up

Where's the love? If there was one fight you would think Rihanna had nothing to do with, you'd think it'd be between Frank Ocean and Chris Brown. No offense to Ocean, since he is open to both sexes, but thinking he and Rihanna were an item seemed far to none. Apparently she cared less about the huge fight and decided to hit the club instead of worry about blood and scars. RumorFix has more:


Rihanna didn't let her ex-boyfriend's brawl with R&B singer Frank Ocean ruin her Sunday night. The pop singer was photographed leaving MyStudio nightclub in Hollywood just hours after Brown allegedly assaulted Ocean over a parking space outside Westlake Studios. Rihanna, escorted by heavy security, was swarmed by paparazzi as she exited the popular venue. Ri, rocking a short hairdo, wore a Louis Vuitton Barack Obama t-shirt with a fatigue jacket. It was rumored that Ocean made disparaging remarks about Ri, prompting Brown to hit him, but RumorFix has learned that is not true. (RumorFix)

Ouch. You would think after all of the time Rihanna has spent with Chris over these past few weeks that she'd at least make sure he is already. Maybe they Skyped after all was said and done? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Happy Bawwwse Day

Hip-hop's really getting old. For every A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar that enters the game, you've got a Nas (39) and now Rick Ross inching closer and closer to their 40's. Is 40 the new 30? XXL Mag has more:

Happy Birthday Rick RossRick Ross & Jay-Z

Happy 37th birthday to Rick Ross! Born in 1976, Rozay's debut album, Port of Miami, was released in 2006. It took the top spot on the Billboard 200, selling 187,000 records in its' first week. The album eventually went gold. Not the one to rest on his laurels, Ross came out with three more albums in quick succession, including Trilla, Deeper Than Rap and Teflon Don. Not only did his fifth album, God Forgives, I Don't, dominate in 2012 (it debuted No. 1 on Billboard200 and sold 218,000 copies in the first week), but the MMG head was named 2012?s Bawse of the Year from GQ magazine.

If 2 Chainz is still popping and he's near 40 (some sites claim he's well beyond 40), then why can't Rick Ross kick back and enjoy seeing his youth disappear? At the ripe age of 37, he's making boss moves. Literally. With MMG stamped on his music, he's running the rap game. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Houston, We Have A Problem

Even though Jeremy Lin is no longer a New York Knick, his 2011-2012 story is still pretty freaking remarkable, coming from nobody to LINSANITY. For a solid couple months, he got way more than local New York attention. The entire sports and entertainment world was fascinated by what he had to bring to the table. Exciement in every game, especially during those big moments. The kid was and is clutch. Now we'll see how it all came together. MTV has the scoop:

What are the chances that Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets -- in the midst of an 82-game regular season -- would be playing the Utah Jazz hours after the close of the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, allowing the point guard to pop over to Park City, Utah, for the final screening of his documentary "Linsanity"? Then again, what are the chances the world would even know the name Jeremy Lin? That the undrafted Harvard grad would become an international sensation who gave New York Knicks fans a reason to root for the team during an otherwise abysmal season? That the Knicks would then fail to re-sign him and that Lin -- courtesy of a three-year, $25 million contract -- would head to Houston? That an MTV News producer named Evan Jackson Leong had been following around Lin for years for what everyone involved thought would be a small documentary about an Asian-American basketball player who no one had ever heard of? That "Linsanity" would end up getting into Sundance and receive rave reviews? (MTV)

When you can, take a peek at the above link and read the Q&A with one of the people behind Jeremy's new doc. Pretty interesting story to say the least. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
