Chris Brown this week completed his court ordered 52-week domestic violence course and for his efforts he showed off a certificate of completion.
It has been almost two years since Brown was arrested and charged with domestic violence against then girlfriend Rhianna and he took to Twitter to say:
“I’m done with class.”
While the self congratulatory Tweet with certificate photo proof might be a little overboard, at least he’s been trying to get his life back in order, including a glowing probation report early this month.

It’s no secret that I can’t stand the stupid antics of the talentless actress/singer known as Taylor Momsen, but her newest outbreak was one of stupidity more than recklessness.
During a recent concert in Scotland, Momsen said to the crowd:
“Glasgow, you are looking good tonight. We are The Pretty Reckless and we have heard that Glasgow is the craziest crowd in all of England.”
That would have been a nice shout out, had Glasgow been in England instead of Scotland.
The crowd quickly realize her mistake and began to boo and hiss at her.

Apparently Chris Colfer doesn’t just have to live with socially awkward moments when playing his flamboyantly gay character on Glee, he also has to deal with the same type of situations in real life.
During a recent taping for Entertainment Tonight Colfer’s byline read “Glee Best Supporting Actress Nominee.”
Sure it was more than likely an innocent mistake, but if this isn’t the best case yet for the acting neutral title “Actor” then I don’t know what is.
