Billboard reported that Rihanna has earned her 30th top-10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with her single "Love on the Brain" from her latest album, 2016's "Anti."

The ranking means she has broken her third-place tie with Michael Jackson, who had 29 top-10 singles as a solo artist.

Rihanna's introduction to the chart came in 2015, when she got her first top-10 hit with "Pon De Replay." She's is only second to The Beatles for the time it took for her to get 30 top-10 singles on the chart in 10 years, seven months and two weeks. It took The Beatles five years, nine months and two weeks to do the same from 1964 to 1969.

Interestingly, one of Rihanna's singles in the 30-song tally include "FourFiveSeconds" with Kanye West and former Beatle Paul McCartney.

Congrats to Rih!

Lindsay Lohan says she was stopped in airport for wearing headscarf

Lindsay Lohan has made headlines for her move to London and her new accent, but now she's speaking about chatter that she is converting to Islam.

NBC News reported that in a new interview, Lohan said she was stopped in an airport and asked to take off her headscarf.

Lohan was photographed with the Quran under her arm, prompting "Good Morning Britain" co-host Susana Reid  to ask her about reports that the actress has converted to Islam.

"Me studying the Quran is something I find solace in … I do study it. Nothing is confirmed yet," she said.

When pressed about the issue by co-host Piers Morgan, Lohan said, "Religion is a personal belief. My sister's a Buddhist. It's a consideration I have."

Morgan pressed further, asking why she was reluctant to say she is converting. Lohan said, "I don't want to comment on something I haven't finished yet. I don't think that's right."

After Morgan mentioned how "polarizing" it would be to discuss interest in Islam in America, Lohan discussed an incident in which she said she was profiled for wearing a headscarf.

"When I was flying to New York recently, I was wearing a headscarf, and I got stopped at the airport … "(The agent) opened my passport and saw 'Lindsay Lohan' and started apologizing but said, 'Take off your headscarf.'"

The co-hosts expressed surprise at what Lohan said.

"I mean, it's OK," she continued. "But what scared me was that moment, how would another woman who doesn't feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel? That was really interesting to me. I was kind of in shock."

Lohan said she could not speak to why she had been asked to take off her headscarf, but said that it was "jarring."

"It was strange. I'm from New York," she said. "I'm born and raised there, so I was a little intimidated."

Lohan said she was wearing the headscarf because she was traveling from Turkey, where The Associated Press reported she met President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and did so "out of personal respect for certain countries that I go to when I see certain people."

Despite some reports, video of the interview posted by "Good Morning Britain" does not show Lohan saying she was in fact racially profiled.

NBC News reported that, according to Gov.uk, passengers have the right to not remove their headgear.

"If you're wearing head gear for religious or cultural reasons, you can ask for it to be checked using a hand-held scanner so you don't have to remove it," the site said.

Derek Trucks, who was also a member of the Allmans as well as his own band and The Tedeschi Trucks Band with singer wife Susan Tedeschi, said he hadn't been that close with Butch since the Allmans disbanded. As he told Rolling Stone's David Fricke online and in the magazine's current issue:

"Our relationship since the split of the band – it didn't get closer. I needed to find some fresh air. But I would read interviews with him. He was as rambunctious as ever, his full Butch-blazing self right to the end."

Trucks told Rolling Stone that he had just read Butch's last interview.

"I read it thinking maybe there was some insight into why it happened, what happened. He was talking about the band he was playing with. There was a lot of looking forward. It didn't seem like a note."
