Was Chris Brown Trying To Save His Career With That BET Awards Performance?

So last night, Chris Brown performed at the BET Awards, paying tribute to Michael Jackson with a dance medley and song. It’s no wonder Chris fancies himself the next MJ — that boy can dance and totally showed Rihanna how the Moonwalk is done. But when it came to singing “Man in the Mirror,” a song that definitely hits home for Chris after he beat the crap out of Rihanna last year, Chris was a blubbering mess. Seriously, I don’t think he completed one lyric. He just flailed his arms, wiped his tears, and hung his head while the crowd and Michael (through a recorded version of the song) sang.

Chris Brown Is Still Crying About Michael Jackson’s Death


Last night on the BET Awards, Chris Brown — you know, that guy who beat up Rihanna and fancies himself “the next Michael Jackson” — performed a tribute to the late King of Pop. Brown was so “overwhelmed” by “emotion” — i.e. he saw an opportunity to draw attention to himself in a desperate attempt to appear compassionate and sensitive — that he broke down into tears and had to be comforted backstage by Jackson’s brother Jermaine. As Annika would say, SMH. Shaking. My. Head. Keep reading »

Quotable: Rihanna Talks About Matt Kemp And Chris Brown

“I have a boyfriend [Matt Kemp]. I’m so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it’s so easy. I have such a chaotic life, but at the end of the day, that is just my peace. It keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family … A year ago, I was very confused. Because [Chris Brown] was my best friend. All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives—not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him—it was either-or. I just didn’t want to feel the pain, the confusion.”

Rihanna also talks fashion designers, the strength and vulnerability of women and stardom, in the July issue of Elle [The YBF] Keep reading »

Quotable: Chris Brown Believes Tiger Woods Deserves A Second Chance

“Whatever [Woods'] personal life is, and this goes for me and him, his personal life is his personal life. Nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on anybody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them. I know my fans gave me a second chance.

Rihanna Rocks Sword Microphone

At last night’s Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam in South Beach, Rihanna took to the stage and sang a medley of “Madhouse,” “Wait Your Turn,” “Live Your Life,” and “Disturbia.” She did it all in a one-armed, one-legged, futuristic black-and-white jumpsuit while singing into a microphone attached to a life-size sword. Probably, that weapon would come in handy if Chris Brown tried to bum-rush stage. She could decapitate him without missing a beat. Keep reading »

Who’s Worse For Rihanna: Chris Brown Or Her Manager?

An easy story for GQ would have been just another Rihanna puff piece, like the disappointingly bland one Glamour ran. GQ could have just let Rihanna say, “Domestic violence is bad! I wear funky clothes! Buy my album!” and have left it at that. But in the article “Good Girl Gone Badass,” journalist Lisa DePaulo brilliantly captured how Rihanna’s manager positioned herself two feet away from RiRi and DePaulo’s conversation and interrupted the interview not once, not twice, but three times, to instruct Rihanna on how to talk about her life. Clearly, Rihanna’s allowed to reveal more in her photo shoots than she is in her interviews. Keep reading »
