Drake and Rihanna

Canadian rapper Drake says his brawl with singer Chris Brown in a now-defunct NYC nightclub was one of the lowest points of his career.

In a sit-down interview with GQ magazine, on newsstands now, Drake called the fight "embarrassing."

"It's embarrassing, the amount of media coverage," said Drake. "Two rappers fighting over the woman. He's not even a rapper, but still, it's the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music. But he's made me the enemy, and that's the way it's gonna stay, I guess."

If you were sitting in the nosebleed section at the 55th Annual Gramnmys when a buzz went through the crowd last night, here's what happened: troubled singer Chris Brown refused to stand and give singer Frank Ocean his props when Ocean won a Grammy for something or other.

Can you blame Brown? The two men recently went toe-to-toe in a recording studio parking lot in LA. So they have no love for each other.

I was waiting for Hip Hop apologist Russell Simmons to defend the latest incidence of senseless violence in Hip Hop, and Russell did not disappoint. Simmons is always quick to defend rappers who commit assault, rape and other offenses. This time he used a woman to do his dirty work for him.

In an editorial published on Simmons' blog Global Grind, Evanka Williamson defended Chicago rapper Lil Reese's actions in a viral video that shows him brutally beating a young woman last year. Reese is also under investigation in the shooting death of 16-year-old Chicago rapper Lil Jojo.

It's worth noting that Lil Reese did not apologize for his violent behavior until radio program directors and DJs threatened to boycott his records.

Last week a video surfaced online showing Chicago rapper Lil Reese and his GBE associates beating up a woman after barging their way inside her residence.

The year old video surfaced on World Star Hip Hop and instantly went viral, sparking outrage from social networking users who are normally immune to such violence against females.

Over the weekend, real men in Hip Hop stood up to denounce Reese's girlish behavior. Atlanta "goons" called out Lil Reese for fighting a woman. And HOT 97 PD called Lil Reese a "b*tch" for "knuckling up with a girl."

Watch the videos after the break.

  • When the news broke in July about the head butt that sent reality TV star Evelyn Lozada to a Florida hospital for stitches, one person who wasn't entirely sympathetic to Lozada's pain and suffering was RHOA star NeNe Leakes.

    Lozada's 'husband' Chad Johnson, 34, was arrested for allegedly head butting his wife of 41 days during an argument over a condom receipt in August. Johnson subsequently lost his job as a wide receiver with the Miami Dolphins football team -- along with lucrative endorsements. He remains unemployed.

    When asked if she reached out to Evelyn in an interview with Essence mag, NeNe said, "I wanted to reach out to her, but I didn't."

    On Tuesday, troubled singer Chris Brown tweeted this pic of himself wearing a skirt and leggings on his Twitter page. The androgynous photo left Brown's fans confused about the message he is sending them.

    Brown has been the subject of gay rumors almost from the moment he burst on the scene as a teenage phenom. One rumor has it that Brown beat Rihanna to a pulp in 2009 because she threatened to go public with the truth about his gay trysts with men.

    But, according to my well-connected source, the 23-year-old singer is not gay. "He's all man," said my source.

  • By now you've all heard the story about the fisticuffs that took place between comedian Jamie Foxx and his longtime manager Breyon Prescott at a Belvedere Red party earlier this month.

    According to an industry insider, who is close to both Jay Z and Jamie Foxx's camps, Jigga came to the rescue of his friend by unofficially blacklisting Prescott at the 2011 Grammy's.

    My source tells me that Jay Z gave the order to his people to take Prescott's name off of his Grammy party lists -- and others in the industry followed suit.

    Jay Z threw a Roc Nation brunch on the Saturday after the fight, according to my source who attended the brunch. He said when Jay saw that Prescott's name was on the list, he reportedly said, "we don't need people up here who fights their artists. It's not a good look."

    Ironically, it was a pre-Grammy fight in 2009 that led to Jay Z imposing a similar blacklist on Chris Brown that nearly destroyed the singer's career after he assaulted his then-girlfriend, and Jay Z protege, Rihanna.

    According to the insider, Foxx and Prescott fell out long before the ruckus took place at Club Avalon in Hollywood on Feb. 10. The two men had been friends and business partners since 1994 when Foxx released his first album entitled Peep This.

    But in recent years, Jamie bristled at rumors that Breyon was allegedly using his name to make money under the table. "He was taking kickbacks, side deals, alla dat - and now Jamie doesn't want nothing to do with him," said my source in a phone call yesterday.

    It seems that Prescott was too "attached" to Foxx -- but not in the way that other blogs have claimed. "He was jealous because Jamie had a better table than he did," said my informant.

    Breyon's habit of using Foxx's name to score sexual services from industry groupies also troubled Foxx. The source said Prescott was drunk when they got to fighting at Avalon after Foxx had severed all contact with him.

    "When Jamie got Breyon in a headlock, Breyon bit Jamie's finger. Jamie had to get stitches in that finger," said the insider, who went on to say that Foxx is huddling with his attorneys to find a way to get Jamie out of his rock solid contract with Prescott. "I think he's got 3 more albums in that contract with Breyon," the source said.

    When it rains, it pours -- milk, that is. The good folks over at Goodby Silverstein & Partners, the ad agency responsible for the "Got Milk" ad campaign, have seen fit to snatch another endorsement from woman beater Chris Brown.

    This makes the second major endorsement lost by the "Run IT" singer since news broke that he punched, kicked and bit singer Rihanna into submission and put her in the hospital.

    And if that's not bad enough, a Cleveland radio station PD pulled all of Chris Brown's music from it's play List. Java Joel, evening personality for Cleveland’s Hit Music Channel 96.5 KISS FM, took calls from angry listeners demanding to know why the station was continuing to play Brown's music.

    Program Director Bo Matthews of KISS FM said:

    “His listeners have strong feelings about these unfortunate events, and he made the decision to take the Chris Brown songs OFF the radio while he is on the air. I then made the decision to rid the whole station of Chris Brown songs while this plays out. We are fans of Chris Brown’s music, and this is not something that will last forever. But it appears that Chris has made some poor choices, we are following the lead of our listeners, and we will not be supporting Chris Brown on 96.5 Kiss FM in Cleveland until the alleged situation gets resolved."
