Rihanna and Chris Brown got into a huge controversy a couple of years ago. The pop stars became tabloid fodder when Brown was arrested for assaulting Rihanna after they had attended a pre-Grammy Awards soiree.
A lot has happened since then, Rihanna became even bigger and Brown managed to salvage his career despite beating up his girlfriend. The two logically separated after the incident, with Rihanna calling it quits. Read the rest of this entry »
Oh no he didn’t! Who would’ve thought that it would come to this? R&B singer Chris Brown makes a desperate plea to his fans to help him sell albums.
He posted a message on SayNow.com, a website where celebrities can record messages for their fans. In Chris Brown’s post, he asks fans to help bring him back to the airwaves because a lot of radio stations aren’t playing his records. Listen to the audio recording here:
According to Hip Hop Crunch, the singer is still feeling the effects of public backlash from last year’s violence issue with Rihanna. He was arrested and sentenced to community service and five years of probation for felony assault against his then girlfriend, following a domestic violence complaint.
“I don’t know what else to say,” he said. “It’s nothing else that I can do. I’m doing everything that I need to do. I’m doing me as a person and I’m a better guy. It’s on ya’ll.”
Chris Brown is undeniably one talented singer/performer, but this just goes to show that when you’re a famous person who beat up your lady, the whole world won’t forget. Let’s just hope that they forgive.
He cleans up pretty well. R&B singer Chris Brown was among the celebrities who strutted their stuff down the runway for “Naomi Campbell’s Fashion For Relief Haiti” Fall 2010 Show during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2010 in New York City last Friday.
I heard he did a good job compared to more professional supermodels who tripped on the runway. But then again, Chris wasn’t wearing 5-inch stilettos.
Supermodels such as (see photo above) Helena Christensen, Georgina Chapman, Naomi Campbell, and Daphne Guinness wore Alexander McQueen threads as a tribute to the designer who tragically passed away last week.
And it’s looking pretty good for her. After that scandal with ex boyfriend Chris Brown, it looks like Rihanna’s luck is a-turnin’. She just released a new album titled “Rated R,” and fans have not hesitated to grab their own copy. As for Chris Brown…he’s still serving his (light) sentence.
Gay rights activists are all up in arms and their target is ABC. Everyone has heard of Adam Lambert’s stunts on stage at the AMAs, and we all know that ABC cancelled his appearance/performance after. They did, however, go through with an interview of Chris Brown – with a performance to boot. Now what’s wrong with this picture? Cancelling on a gay performer is okay and featuring a girlfriend beater is okay, too? Ummm…is it just me or is ABC calling the wrong shots?
If your ex beat you up and it became known all over the world, would you still want to hear his voice? Rihanna says yeah, she doesn’t hate Chris Brown’s music, and that she actually still listens to it. Yeah, she misses him too.
There was a bigger reason for Rihanna’s coming out to talk about the assault – she wants to help others and maybe save lives. Ex Chris Brown was upset about her revelations, but Rihanna knows she is doing the right thing. I totally agree!
Everyone was eager to hear what Rihanna had to say about the night that her then boyfriend, Chris Brown, beat her up. She was quite candid during the interview, and naturally, Chris Brown wasn’t too happy about it. He says that what happened that night should remain between the two of them. I think he should just keep his mouth shut on the matter.
Remember my post about Rihanna breaking her silence on Chris Brown and their relationship? Let me correct myself – the interview will air today on Good Morning America and tomorrow on 20/20. Anyhow, a sneak peek: she said that he was her first big love, but that they were dangerous for each other. Oh, the complications of love!
In several months, it will have been a year since Chris Brown beat up Rihanna, and it is only now that the female singer will be breaking her silence about the whole thing. In the meanwhile, Chris Brown has been sentenced to community service, Rihanna has been churning out hits. Tune in to Good Morning America this Friday to hear what she has to say!
Chris Brown fans will be treated to a “Fan Appreciation” starting next month. The singer has announced his intention of going on this tour, which will cover 19 cities. Fans from Houston, NYC, LA, and Chicago (among others) are the lucky ones!
Being sentenced to 180 days of hard labor does not seem to be bothering Chris Brown at all. TMZ spotted him doing his thing, and he is looking good! Then again, being out in the open is much better than being cooped up in jail, isn’t it?
Chris Brown is finally starting his “sentence.” On his first day, he pulled out weeds and cleared debris at a police horse stable. The rapper had two other people on probation working with him, with several more police officers to supervise. Of course, there were a handful of fans and some TV crew. One day down, 179 more to go.
Finally, Rihanna seems to be back in the swing of things. She was seen at XS nightclub in the Encore in Las Vegas in a hot white dress, drawing attention to, well, her cleavage. No one’s complaining! I guess she was just waiting for the case against Chris Brown to be over with, huh?

Does Chris Brown have a death wish? The way he’s been acting, you’d think so! His recent statements about Oprah’s feature on domestic violence have been spreading like wildfire. So what did he say?
“I commend Oprah on being like, ‘This is a problem,’ but it was a slap in my face. I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school. She could’ve been more helpful, like, ‘Okay, I’m going to help both of these people out.’”
Does he really think that was a smart thing to say?
While her ex-boyfriend is serving out his sentence for beating her up, Rihanna has been busy with other things. The Italian Vogue will be featuring her in the latest issue. Seeing that picture, I bet it will sell more copies than usual!
In his first live interview since the controversial beating up of his girlfriend (ex?) Rihanna, Chris Brown told Larry King that he still loves her and that he does not remember the events of that fateful night. Maybe it’s really a strange case of amnesia, or maybe it’s a convenient memory gap. I wonder how Rihanna feels about the whole thing?
That’s what moms do, right? Chris Brown may have lost the respect of many people worldwide, but his mom says she is not ashamed of her son. She says that she made a promise that she will never be ashamed of her son, no matter what. Isn’t it amazing what a mother’s love can do?
Chris Brown gave his first formal interview since February when he sat down with David Letterman a day after his sentence was handed out. He was with his mother Joyce Hawkins and his attorney Mark Geragos. Watch the interview on September 2.
