Morning Links: David La Chapelle Is Suing Rihanna, Man Is Still Smarter Than Machine

● David LaChapelle is not happy with Rihanna’s new “S&M” video, which he believes borrows heavily from his own photos. A side-by-side comparison of the images makes it clear that this is about more than candy-colored sex. [Reuters] ● Say what you will, but we refuse to believe that the King and Queen, Jay and Bey, are anything other than meant to be. [MediaTakeOut] ● Paramount is cutting a second version of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, to be released in a few weeks so that we can all go see it again. Which is totally cool, though, because we saved our 3D glasses. [NYM]

● Rosanne Barr is headed to the farm — a fully-functional, 40-acre macadamia and live stock farm, to be exact — for an upcoming Lifetime reality show. Paris Hilton was a pioneer of this celebrity back-to-the-land genre, and it’s unclear what that meant for her, but we wish Rosanne all the best. [Deadline] ● Last night on Jeopardy!, two of the show’s contestants, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter, faced off against Watson, a really big computer. Watson did well, but didn’t know the answer to a question about Harry Potter. In knock-down, drag-out, man-versus-machine battles, at least we’ve got that. [NYT] ● Miley Cyrus is growing up, and it’s nice to see that she’s seeking out role models to help. “I want to be Snooki, I love her,” she told Access Hollywood, “I’m obsessed, I follow wer around….because I love her and I’m inspired by her.” Tell us: exactly how sharp are those pangs of regret, Billy Ray?
