Oh, how sad. Chris Brown has deleted his Twitter account. Yesterday, the R&B singer got in a war of very immature words with comedienne Jenny Johnson, after Johnson tweeted that he was a worthless piece of shit. In his defense, Brown proceeded to behave like a worthless piece of shit, calling Johnson a “hoe” and saying that his mom suggested he shit in her eye. Now, Brown deleted all of these tweets, but because Johnson replied to them, they live on because Twitter is a bitch like that. Anyway, Brown also tweeted, “Just ask Rihanna if she mad??????” which I find way more bothersome than the sharting in eyeballs stuff, because it’s, once again, dismissive of his now infamous assault against the singer and his then-girlfriend. Just because Rihanna has “forgiven” him and is still caught up in that abusive relationship (the two were spotted partying together this weekend), doesn’t make that incident okay. Following these tweets, Brown deleted his entire Twitter account, which really just means he’ll continue to behave like a worthless piece of shit, only slightly more privately. Ughs all around.

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 »
