A.M. Surf Report: 'Spider-Man 3' Smashes Records; Britney Stages A Comeback; Canada Puts Snoop On A Short Leash

Plus 'Idol' raises big bucks; 'Chicken Little' raps with Paris; Frank Miller returns to the movies and more.

The news happens all the time, even while you're catching up on beauty sleep. Check out this brief rundown to bring you up to speed this morning — a quick heads up from your friends at MTV News.

Here's what we've got:

Rihanna told us that she "still can't believe" she has Jay-Z on her "Umbrella" — "They played it for me, and I got goose bumps everywhere." But Jay says it's only natural that he'd jump on the song, and stresses that his contribution is more than just another guest verse. "It's not just lending my vocals to a project," he explained. "It's a project and person I believe in." ...

Ozzy Osbourne tells us that he has not given up on Black Sabbath, but he explains that if the band makes new music together, it has to be great — or it risks destroying the legacy. "We have repaired some of the damage between each other," Ozzy said, "and now, I'd like to do a really good f---ing Black Sabbath album." ...

And Jake Gyllenhaal will not be starring in "Shazam!" — at least not yet. "We saw on the Internet that Jake Gyllenhaal would be a great Captain Marvel and we were already in negotiations with him," director Peter Segal told us. "I said, 'Well, he'd be great, but we've literally just signed the writer!' " ...

Here's what everyone else is talking about:

"Spider-Man 3" is already a smash. According to a Reuters report, the superhero sequel broke box-office records in eight Asian markets on Tuesday — when the film opened in select cities in Asia and Europe — and is set to open domestically on 4,253 screens Friday, the biggest North American debut of all time, Variety reports. The Associated Press reports that the flick earned $29.15 million in 16 overseas markets on its first day, surpassing the debuts of the previous two installments in those locales. ...

It really happened: Britney Spears did stage a comeback show at San Diego's House of Blues Tuesday night, and we were there. Check back later this morning for a full report on the five-song showcase and fans' reaction to Brit's return. ...

Canada isn't joining the list of nations Snoop Dogg can't visit, but one city wants to keep him on a tighter leash. CBC reports that the Lethbridge, Alberta, city council has passed a new law that would require Snoop to post a performance bond before a show — an undisclosed sum that will be returned only if he refrains from breaking the law onstage — after alleging that he smoked marijuana during a performance in January. ...

"Idol Gives Back" has raised close to $70 million, Ryan Seacrest announced on Tuesday night's show, which also featured President Bush and his wife, Laura, thanking viewers for their donations — and Blake beatboxing his way through a Bon Jovi mainstay. Did LaKisha do the New Jersey giants' big "Love Song" ballad justice? Is Gina Glocksen fave Chris Richardson doomed? Check back later this morning for "Idol" expert Jim Cantiello's commentary. ...

"Idol" season-five castoff Paris Bennett has apparently stayed close to at least one of her finalist peers. Billboard.com reports that Kevin "Chicken Little" Covais raps on "Can I Rap" — that title alone makes it an instant must-hear — from Paris' debut album, Princess P. Paris tells Billboard.com that she has "respect and honor" for "Idol" despite a comment she made last month alleging that the show "isn't going for talent anymore." ...

"300" mastermind Frank Miller is heading back to the big screen with "Ronin," Variety reports. Warner Bros. has picked up the project based on Miller's graphic novel, which will be directed by Sylvain White ("Stomp the Yard"). In other movie news, you can skip that trip to Cannes to see Leonardo DiCaprio's environmental documentary "The 11th Hour," so long as you're willing to wait. The film, produced, narrated and scripted by Leo — and featuring interviews with scientists and world leaders — will be distributed in the U.S. this fall, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

And all heck broke loose over at Digg.com Tuesday night after a story was pulled for including a code to crack HD-DVD copy protection, Gizmodo reports. Users hit the site with a ton of responses criticizing the move — and reposting the code — until Digg founder Kevin Rose weighed in. "We hear you, and effective immediately we won't delete stories or comments containing the code and will deal with whatever the consequences might be," Rose wrote in a blog post. "If we lose, then what the hell, at least we died trying."
