Today's news you might've missed:

  • Everyone: Lindsay Lohan won't be partying in Dubai on Saturday - or anywhere else, it seems. Her rep says she'll be chilling at home with "a few close friends" and family in L.A. [TMZ]
  • Chris Brown and Rihanna have been sending some coincidentally timed, lovey-dovey tweets out into the Twittersphere, which they may or may not be directing at one another. [E!]
  • If you've been slipping up in your "One Life to Live" viewing, here's your chance to catch up before the finale: SOAPNet will air a marathon on Sunday starting at 10 a.m.. [HuffPo]
  • Like we said Thursday, everyone is supposed to be on Beyonce Birth Watch, and it looks like some have taken this task to heart. The baby's been named (by the Internet, mind you) Tiana-May Carter before the arrival's even been announced. [Mirror]
