Rihanna's giving back! E! News has learned that the singer sent a check for $5,000 to Barrington High School in Illinois following her special appearance earlier this year. Jeff Arnett, a spokesperson for the Barrington 220 School District, confirmed that the pop star's management had been in communication with school officials and had been planning the donation since March. Fanboys turned out in strong numbers Thursday night to see Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, which took in $3.6 million. Sony's ensemble Adam Sandler comedy Grown Ups 2 didn't do too shabby either as it likewise began rolling out in North America Thursday night, grossing an impressive $2.3 million. Rapper Jay Z is taking promo to the next level, selling a million copies of his latest album to Samsung for smartphone distribution and going on a six-hour Twitterthon with fans. The American musician holds the title for most No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 chart for a solo artist and "Magna Carta ... Holy Grail," has a good shot of being his 13th record to shoot to No. 1. But not all critics were impressed with the music and at least one ravaged the Samsung deal. less
