The New York Yankees have unveiled his and her fragrances. They say the fragrances will have Yankees' fans whiffing more than Yankees' hitters.
CHRIS BROWN has had the haters riled up since he appeared at the Grammys, but he may have just pulled a major bonehead move. He's been accused of snatching some girl's iPhone outside a Miami nightclub last weekend and driving off with it. The victim followed Chris and rapper Tyga out of the club and Brown allegedly snapped when he saw her camera phone and grabbed it through his car window, telling her, "Bitch, you ain't going to put that on no website." The major bonehead part is that Chris is still on probation for the Rihanna beatdown and if this turns into something, he could land in prison.
SIMON COWELL says that THE X FACTOR will have two female judges next season and the rumor mill has gone into overdrive.

- The reunion album from former DEPECHE MODE bandmates Vince Clarke and Martin Gore will see the light of day on March 13th. They're calling themselves VCMG and the album is titled "Ssss." However, a VCMG tour is unlikely because Gore plans to start recording Depeche Mode's next album in March.
- Don't invite DRAKE and DMX to the same party. In an interview yesterday, DMX said, "I don't like anything about Drake. I don't like his voice. I don't like what he talks about. I don't like his face. I don't like the way he walks. I don't like his haircut." No word on what the hate is all about, but DMX says he's cool with Drake's mentor LIL WAYNE, but he also dissed RICK ROSS, saying: "He just talks about eating too much. How much can a n**** eat?"
- LADY ANTEBELLUM is already working on the follow-up to "Own the Night." Hillary Scott says they have at least a dozen songs written, but they also added that they're not going to rush the process. They say they may try to go into the studio at some point this year, but the next album probably won't be out until next year.
