Not long after splitting up with G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean (her former fiance), Glee star Naya Rivera has married another man. According to People, she married actor Ryan Dorsey, on July 19 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, during a small ceremony.

“We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife,” the couple told PEOPLE exclusively. “Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for.”

Though he’s not a super celeb just yet, Dorsey and Rivera are “longtime” friends and their relationship turned romantic after her split with Sean in April.

Three of today’s biggest stars posed together for a quick photo. Nicki Minaj hit Instagram on Sunday, posting a flick of herself in between Drake and Usher. No details on where the photo was taken place, but the trio have been making news lately. Both Minaj and Usher have new albums coming later this year, as they’ve collaborated on the song “She Came to Give It To You.”

Meanwhile Drake recently confirmed the title to his upcoming fourth solo album will be Views From the 6, before taking over this year’s ESPY Awards in Los Angeles.

TDE’s most mysterious one, Ab-Soul, recently kicked with my team at VIBE for an ill photo shoot at Madison park, home of NYC’s Shake Shack. On a breezy summer day, Soul talked to VIBE VIXEN’s EIC Shanel Odum about everything that he has on his plate right now. Literally. Check out the interview and original photos taken by yours truly below.

VIBE: What’s Ab-Soul listening to these days?
Ab: I’m really interested in the new generation of rap. Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era, H’z Global, Da$h and RetcH, Chance the Rapper, the SaveMoney clique, Vic Mensa; just a lot of new breeds. I’m 27; these guys are like 21, 23. That’s just amazing to me. I walk around with these guys and I feel 23. That’s very refreshing. I feel like the world is moving faster.

What is Ab-Soul eating these days?
Everything. I was eating a protein bar earlier, but I’m not a vegan. I’m an optimistic person. I’m open to try new things. I still eat my mom and grandma’s pork chops.

Marvel Comics has announced that future stories from the Thor series, will feature Thor as a female character. Not the Thor you normally think of, like actor Chris Hemsworth, above, all brolic Nordic blondness…he’s not going to suddenly be a post-operative transgender female superhero. (That would have actually been incredible, and very progressive, actually.) “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before,” reads the Marvel press release.

Instead, the traditional male Thor, who was established in 1962, has been found “unworthy” of the “mighty Uru hammer”…so now a woman is chosen to take his place. So she’s the Goddess of Lightning now. Just a transition of power. But still significant in the sense that Thor is only Marvel’s 8th female hero. Why this meant that the news needed to be broken on The View, I have no friggin’ idea. Come on! Future superwomen don’t watch a bunch of catty hags on daytime tv. That’s some dumb movie marketing exec’s idea, clearly.

Anyways, check out what your new Thor will look like…

Jay Electronica promised to “burst the heavens open” with his performance at the 2014 BK Hip-Hop Festival on Saturday (July 12), and he did just that. Headlining the festival’s 10th edition alongside Raekwon, the Roc Nation rapper arrived with fellow members of the F.O.I. (Fruit of Islam), before bringing out Jay Z, J. Cole, Mac Miller and Talib Kweli onstage. To cap it all off, Hov even crowned Jay Elec with a Five-Percent chain in front of the crowd.

While we’ve already seen official footage of Jay Electronica’s set, the rapper decided to share his own photos on Twitter of candid moments with Jay Z, Mac Miller, Talib Kweli, CyHi The Prynce, Ty Ty and even his mother. Rumble young man, rumble.

UPDATE: Watch Jay Electronica’s interview with REVOLT below.

(Podolski x Rihanna x Schweinsteiger)

Rihanna caught a serious case of World Cup fever, and although she’s shown allegiance to more than a couple of countries over these past four weeks, she picked the right team last night. With tickets to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final at the nearly 80,000 capacity Maracanã stadium in Rio de Janeiro, the Bajan beauty cheered on the Germans to a 1-0 extra time victory over Argentina, and her support was, shall we say, reciprocated.

Because she’s Rihanna and she can do just about anything she wants, RiRi charmed her way into the post-game celebrations with the German squad, and was even allowed hold the coveted World Cup trophy. She also snook in photos (and a quick kiss) with star players like Miroslav Klose, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Lukas Podolski and the winning goalscorer, aka “my hitta,” Mario Götze.

Serious question, fellas. Which was better: winning the World Cup or partying with Rihanna?
