Today in NOOOOOOOO: Chris Brown, singer or something and otherwise all-around spawn of Satan, has been signed to the artist management division of Wilhelmina International, the modeling agency representing such popular faces as supermodel Coco Rocha, plus-size star Robyn Lawley, and, uh, Kendall Jenner. The highly-regarded agency will seek to score fashion and beauty endorsements and licenses for the infamous pop star. (Is he a pop star? Seriously, I have no clue. I’ve never heard any of his songs besides “Birthday Cake,” which is an insult to humanity and also people with ears all over the world.) I wonder how that ill-advised neck tattoo of a horribly battered woman will play into his modeling career? In the most basic of terms: fucking gag. [WWD]
Somebody wasn’t very happy that R&B singer/domestic abuser Chris Brown was going to be performing in Stockholm, Sweden, so they took to the streets and created posters of their own to advertise the event. There is something a tad icky about exploiting Rihanna’s beaten and bruised face to make a point about Brown, but I’ll let it slide because the overarching message is so important: If you’re supporting Chris Brown, you’re supporting violence against women.
Chris Brown isn’t exactly handling his breakup from Karrueche Tran in typical Hollywood fashion: Instead, he released a sort of confessional video last night, in which he mused about his love for, apparently, both Tran and Rihanna. “Is there such thing as loving two people?” Brown asks, as pictures of both women flash onscreen. “I don’t know if that’s possible. For me, I just feel like that, you know?” continues Brown—who was “a little drunk” at the time. Read more…
I have something to say to my lady blogger friends who write about domestic violence. Please tread more carefully with your words, and please don’t be so sure you know what you’re talking about. Unless you a) have been in an abusive relationship or b) are a professional who is trained to treat people in abusive relationships, you could be doing more harm than good.
The most recent debate that had my hair standing on end was the conversation that erupted around Dr. Drew Pinsky’s comments on Lance Bass’ new SiriusXM radio show. Keep reading »
hris Brown has tested positive for drugs while on probation for a 2009 felony conviction for assaulting former gal pal Rihanna. He failed a random drug test while doing community service in Virginia. He told a judge in a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday that he had smoked marijuana in California, and had a medical marijuana card from the state issued by an acupuncturist, reports the New York Daily News.

After you’ve removed all your friends’ babies from Facebook, here’s how to rid the Internet of another thing that is highly annoying: Brownout. It’s a Chrome extension that gets rid of all things Chris Brown: mentions of his name, pictures of him, everything.
Canadia’s Canada’s AUX TV station said they created the app after the recent controversy about whether Chris Brown’s new tattoo was a badly-drawn sugar skull or Rihanna’s bloodied face reached peak “idiocy saturation.” After you download Brownout, Chris’ face is replaced with a blue box onscreen and his name is erased from articles. Previously AUX made an extension that rids your browser from all things Nickelback called Nickelblock, just because their music blows (but we won’t tell Winona). Can y’all make this for Charlie Sheen, too, because I don’t want to devote anymore brain cells to that abusive asshole, either. [Digital Spy, Hip Hop Wired] [Photo: Splash News]
