Dumb and Dumber can’t get any, well, dumber. Warner Bros. has dropped production on a sequel to the 1994 comedy, Dumb and Dumber To (yes, one ‘o,’ not two). Brothers Bobby and Peter Farrelly, who started the franchise, are on the hunt for a new distribution deal. [CNN]

Pining for Lana Del Rey‘s latest? Well, your wish may have been answered. “Beautiful Player” appeared online today, and although it’s new, it may or may not be an official single.

Ever wonder what performing with Rihanna is like? Haim can answer that. “We did like a test run with Rihanna, only performing one show and it was insane,” the 20-something sisters shared in an interview. “It was for the biggest audience we’ve ever performed for before, besides opening for Beyoncé at Chime For Change. It was definitely very intimidating.” Now, with a Governors Ball and David Letterman Show performance under their belts, we’re sure hopping back on the Diamonds World Tour won’t be so scary.

On June 18, you may be calling him Yeezus, but don’t expect Kanye West to give up his seat on the throne. The Chicago-born emcee and Jay-Z will reportedly reunite for a follow-up to 2011′s Watch the Throne. Producer Mike Dean revealed that the pair have “talked about it” but he won’t drop anymore juice. “My lips are sealed,” Dean said in a chat on HuffPost Live. ”I don’t want to do any spoilers.” Either way, when the collaboration does come to fruition, we’re sure it’ll get plenty of radio spins… even if West doesn’t care. [MTV]
