Many of Rihanna's fans are not happy with the singer's decision to follow her abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown on Twitter. Over the weekend, fans began to notice that Brown had started following her on the social media site and that she had followed him in return. When confronted by a young fan who asked whether this mutual finding indicated that the two had reconciled or were even getting back together, Rihanna shot back "its fuckin twitter, not the alter! [sic] calm down." She later apologized for her harsh response but made it clear that the two were no longer involved.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
