You may not have heard of Max Drummey, so I’ll fill you in. He’s a guitarist for Chester French, a pretty decent band. He has hipster hair. And he married and divorced Bob Geldof spawn/Miss Ultimo model Peaches Geldof earlier this year. But now you can just file him away in your brain as a dumbass.
Max mouthed off to the Daily Mail about Chris Brown’s alleged beating of Rihanna, and said:
“We’re guys who have been hurt by women and I’m glad people like Chris Brown are finally taking it back and hurting women.”

Sirens siren Heather Wood Rudulph has written a piece for Huffington Post about five reasons we still need feminism, including the recent murder of abortion provider, Dr. George Tiller, and the propensity of pop culture to make women look like marriage-crazy loons.
Her five reasons are just dandy, but why limit ourselves to only five? It was depressingly easy to think of five more reasons we need more of the F-word. Keep reading »
“I don’t do all this talking on the thing, this is just some new stuff I’m doing,” Brown said in a YouTube video he made at Shaquille O’Neal’s house on Tuesday. “I just wanna say ‘What’s up?,’ because I ain’t been out there in a minute. But the new album is gonna be coming soon. We working on it right now. It’s called Graffiti. It’s got everything on it, so y’all be ready for that. I’m about to drop a single this summer for y’all. We ain’t going nowhere. Everybody that’s haters, they just been haters. All my real fans, I love you. I ain’t a monster.”
Um, really dude? After keeping silent for so long about your alleged altercation with Rihanna, you want your first message to the public to be a…plug for your new album? There’s a time and a place for self-promotion, but this “ain’t” it. Drop the attitude, not the album. Keep reading »
Chris Brown pleaded not guilty to felony charges of assault and making a criminal threat in a Los Angeles court on Monday. His plea, however, could just be a formality because there are rumors that he and his lawyer are seriously negotiating a plea bargain with the prosecutor. If Chris cops a plea, then Rihanna won’t have to testify. She has made it clear she doesn’t want to testify but will if forced, says her attorney. A quick resolution to the case is also in Chris’ best interest, if significant jail time is taken off the table. He will avoid the public airing of his dirty laundry and more negative publicity. He’s facing a maximum of four years and eight months in a federal prison if the case goes to trial, however, he could get as little as probation alone. Then again, if the prosecutor makes a tough offer, Chris might be better off going to trial in hopes of avoiding a lot of prison time, even if it means his reputation and career will be in the toilet when he gets out.

Supposedly, Rihanna can’t decide whether to take Chris Brown back after he allegedly beat the crap out of her in February, so she has reportedly demanded he publicly apologize to her on “Oprah.” Rihanna has been talking to Oprah Winfrey on a regular basis since the media mogul cautioned the singer against reconciling with Chris. But a public apology really won’t help Rihanna make up her mind because either she believes he’s remorseful or not. This just sounds like a bad idea for all three parties involved. Keep reading »
Rihanna may think that she’s back to making sweet music together with her battering boyfriend, but she is sadly mistaken if she thinks he will never hit her again. Men who batter rarely do it once, even if they are rich and famous. So if you’re in a relationship with a guy who has pushed, hit or slapped you once, take it as a warning sign. You can expect him to do it again and again. Keep reading »
