Last week we heard news that some activists in Sweden were plastering pictures with Rihanna‘s beatup face all around Stockholm. Their goal was to prevent Chris Brown from performing in their town. This week, Rihanna and Chris Brown’s newest single, titled “Nobody’s Business” (of course!) leaked online. We wonder how those activists feel about the track, which we have for you down below. Also, Dave Grohl got named the keynote speaker for next year’s SXSW. And a new Kurt Cobain documentary in the works. All that and more below.

- Kurt Cobain Documentary In The Works: There’s a new Kurt Cobain documentary in the works. Filmmaker Brett Morgen told the New York Post (via Rolling Stone) that Courtney Love brought the idea to him. He praised Cobain for being an amazing songwriter and musician and added that he was also an artist and filmmaker. “We are going to do the movie sort of like a third-person autobiography – [as] if Kurt was around and making a film about his life.” Sounds interesting.
- Rihanna And Chris Brown’s Song Leaks: Rihanna and Chris Brown’s track titled “Nobody’s Business,” leaked online this week. This song, which opens with the lyrics, “You’ll always be mine, sing it to the world/You’ll always be my boy, I’ll always be your girl,” will definitely cause some controversy. Listen to the track below:
