Beyonce haters run for cover ... 'cause Motown legend Smokey Robinson joined us today to defend her honor in the Inauguration lip-sync controversy -- and he's especially calling out Harvey for bashing B!

Plus, Snoop Lion allegedly duped the Rasta community -- according to a reggae superstar -- but director/actor Eli Roth claims Snoop's the real deal. You gotta hear what he says about working with Mr. Dogg ... uh, Lion. 

Also, openly gay Matt Bomer is up for the lead in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie -- can he pull it off? Would women buy him playing such an extremely hetero character?

Who gives a crap if Smokey Robinson is pissed. Bey lip synced, she shouldn't have. We as conumers (audience) expect live performances, esp. when the singer is acting like it's live. When we are duped we have the right to be peeved.

Wonder is Harvey can take it as well as he gives it.
I have a feeling Harvey is not going to admit anything and it will all magically disappear from the edited version..

To me if you aren't going to sing it live then just play a recording without the performer being there.

Smokey ROCKS! I agree with him completely! Beyonce wasn't Milli Vanilli. She was singing to her own beautiful voice! Find something else to be upset about.

Back in the day performers had no choice but to sing live.Now you go to concerts pay top dollar to listen to pre-recorded tracts-makes me sick. She should have sang it and if it wasn't perfect -that would have made it all the more great-Best Nation Anthem ever -Marvin Gaye

Shades of Grey is for barely literate housewives. It's Sex and the City for women who want to live vicariously through leather men instead of Mario Cantone.
