Remember when troubled singer Chris Brown made the tasteless decision to wear that mink backpack to an industry event? Well, the British version of GQ magazine named Brown the worst dressed male in the world.
GQ even put together a slideshow of Brown's fashion choices that is truly laughable! It probably doesn't help that Brown wears his pants off his butt like a 2-year-old with a loaded diaper.
For someone who seems to have so much disposable income - he boasts on one track about spending "15 grand on a phone" and charged over $500 for meet-and-greets on his last tour - Brown seems utterly adverse to investing in tailoring, combining the worst excesses of XXL sizing with a penchant for deeply unflattering costumes.
Brown's emotions are very fragile right now. I wonder how he's taking the news? The last time his personal style was attacked, he took to his Twitter page to rage about it:

Last night, while watching a rerun of the popular hit sitcom 'Girlfriends,' I was surprised to see words such as "bitch" and "damn" were censored by the cable network. 10 years ago, when 'Girlfriends' was a hit, profanity on the show was the norm. I thought it would only get worse over the years as morality continued its decline in America.
But today, cable networks are taking a stand against indecency, and gossip blog TMZ.com reports that BET has banned the woefully misogynistic music video "Stupid Hoe" by misguided rapper Nicki Minaj.
Why the sudden shift in morality by BET and other cable networks after all these years?
We spoke with a rep for BET who wouldn't specify exactly why the network has banned the video -- simply saying BET will not be broadcasting it.
But sources at the company tell us, the ban was put in place because the video's just too explicit for TV.
The song lyrics alone are bad enough -- repeating the phrase "stupid h*e" dozens of times -- but the video itself is damn raunchy too, showing several nearly naked female figures. Normally this is where we'd post the video ... but in this case, just Google it.
It's pretty great -- especially if you like Nicki's butt in a thong.
The music world is mourning the loss of innovator Don Cornelius, who died of an apparent suicide this morning.
From the NY Daily News:
“Soul Train” creator and host Don Cornelius, who brought R&B into America’s living rooms with his long-running television show, committed suicide Wednesday, according to TMZ.com
The 75-year-old Cornelius was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head around 4 a.m. inside his Sherman Oaks, Calif., home, the celebrity web site reported.
His show, dubbed “The Hippest Trip in America,” presented stars like Smokey Robinson, Aretha Franklin and Barry White to a national television audience.
Cornelius, with his deep voice, stylish clothes and Afro, provided a hipper alternative to Dick Clark and “American Bandstand” when his show debuted on Aug. 17, 1970.

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney won a decisive victory over the struggling Newt Gingrich in the Florida primary last night.
A victorious Romney urged his Republican supporters to focus on defeating President Obama, declaring, “I stand ready to lead this party and to lead our nation.”
Romney's ecstatic supporters included Blacks and Hispanics -- the same demographic that helped President Obama seal his historic victory in 2008. Many of Obama's former supporters have switched parties due to their lack of confidence in the Democrats.
So what does this mean for Mr. and Mrs. Obama? Well, let's be realistic here: it means they should start packing the small things first.
The president and the first lady have accumulated a lot more possessions than they had when they originally moved into the White House 4 years ago, i.e. gifts from world leaders and such.
According to Goodhousekeeping.com, they should see moving "as an opportunity to organize and purge." They should consider donating or selling items that they don't want or need -- rather than dragging all that stuff back to their home in Chicago.
