There are certain crimes against humanity that cannot be forgiven simply because the offender has served his time. Particularly violent crimes against women.
Women's groups around the world are not willing to let Chris Brown off the hook 3 years after he was convicted of beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna to a bloody pulp.
Protesters in Sweden took to the streets to express their disapproval at an upcoming Chris Brown concert there. The Huffington Post reports that posters featuring Rihanna's mutilated face have been plastered on walls all over Stockholm.
New studies show that the black community is rife with sexually transmitted diseases. In fact, black women top the lists of women afflicted with HIV and Herpes. A shocking 50% of black women have been diagnosed with Herpes simplex.
It's no secret that black women who are desperate for love often open their legs to married men, single men and even gay men. Singer Rihanna is known to stay out of the public eye until her rumored Herpes outbreaks clear up.
Pop singer Chris Brown and his other woman, Karrueche Tran attended the GreyStone Manor Halloween Party together last night in Los Angeles. Both arrived and departed the party in separate vehicles. But word is that Karrueche is living rent-free in Brown's Malibu condo (when she's not giving him back rubs at his LA home). The couple continue to make a fool out of singer Rihanna who forced Brown to proclaim his love for her in a press release earlier this month.
R&B singer Chris Brown showed up at the 50th birthday party for Elton John's husband without on-again girlfriend Rihanna or his mistress Karrueche. Brown, 23, was seen arriving in a leased $750,000 Lamborghini at the party for Elton John's husband, David Furnish at the Belasco Theatre in Downtown, Los Angeles, Thursday night. If you recall, Brown was driving a similar leased Lamborghini the night he pummeled Rihanna into submission in 2009. Photo: SPW/Splash News
Rihanna's boyfriend, Chris Brown, has figured out a way to keep his ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, around him without raising suspicion. According to Hip Hollywood, Brown hired Karrueche as his wardrobe stylist on his latest photo shoot. This would explain why we see Karrueche around Brown more than we see Rihanna.
Singer Chris Brown tweeted a pic of his Troy Polamalu-inspired hairstyle Thursday. Brown who has rekindled his romance with singer Rihanna tweeted this pic of himself wearing a long wig under a red knit cap. Polamalu, the Pittsburgh Steeler safety, insured his famous locks for $1 million.
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.
On Tuesday I incorrectly stated that Chris Brown fired his longtime manager Tina Davis. In fact, Brown hired Bu Thiam to head his management team. Bu and Tina will share management duties. I regret the error.

If you noticed a kinder, more intellectual Chris Brown tweeting on social networking website Twitter.com, there's a good reason for that.
6 months after telling the media Chris Brown would not give interviews in 2012, Brown's longtime manager Tina Davis has been fired.
Troubled singer Chris Brown, 22, and his girlfriend Karrueche Tran were spotted catching a flight out of LAX Airport in LA yesterday. If anything, Brown has proven his ability to keep a girlfriend for longer than 6 months. Brown and his girl were treated like any other arriving passenger by the LAX security. Security rummaged through Brown's favorite MCM classic cognac Visetos backpack with gold studs ($750), which he paired with the MCM Michael Michalsky "Urban Nomad" Sneakers in black colorway from the Fall 2011 collection ($450). Below is a pic of the same sneakers in the classic cognac colorway.
We may not like Brown personally but we do like his taste in the luxury brand MCM line!
The staff over at the HipHopblog.com wrote an interesting post questioning whether rap mogul Jay Z, his wife Beyonce and singer Rihanna all boycotted the 2010 BET Awards because they knew in advance that Chris Brown, would be performing a MJ Tribute on the show.
That's a lot of star power to piss off just so BET could score ratings with Brown's staged PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE act.
Not only did BET's brass allow CB to perform his dance tribute, but they also set aside about two minutes and 25 seconds of valuable air time to give him the chance to publicly flog himself.
By doing this, BET allowed their now stellar awards show to be used as a self-serving propaganda vehicle for Brown, who was not allowed to perform last year because Jay Z and Beyonce were in attendance.
In the year and a half since the now infamous beating incident, Brown has not shown one iota of remorse for what he did to Rihanna.
All of this makes me wonder what will BET do next year to win Jay Z and Beyonce back?
The garbage man cometh. Convicted felon Chris Brown took time out of his busy schedule keeping downtown Richmond, Virginia trash-free to drop a piece of trash on us. It's his new track produced by Toucan Sam, er, Swizz Beatz and featuring Lil Wayne titled "I Can Transform Ya."
As most of you know, NBA star LeBron James has been busy promoting his new basketball film titled "More Than A Game." The soundtrack release party was held last night in NYC at Marquee.
Mandingo rapper Akon was there
So was the always elegantly coiffed Mary J. Blige and her husband Kendu (not pictured)
Teyana Taylor's name was misspelled in the caption, indicating that the paparazzi don't know why she's a celebrity either.
Singer/songwriter Ester Dean has a song on the soundtrack, the title of which escapes me. Hopefully I'll be able to remember the next song she puts out or she'll be put in the same category as "Tiana" Taylor.
Loyal reader KaraZ wrote in about the events that led up to the brutal Damas family murders. In her email, she compares child killer Mesac Damas' stormy relationship with his deceased wife Guerline to Chris Brown and Rihanna's turbulent relationship.
Can you please update the story about the Mesac murders. I just read the comments and your readers haven't heard enough about the story and think this is a man who got fed up with life & not being able to provide for his family. This is NOT the case. This man was a classic abuser and decided to kill his family. I rarely agree with you on things, but when I read this story first over the weekend, I immediately thought of the Rihanna battering by Chris Brown story.
I kept thinking this is where their story would have ended up if they weren't both famous. Look at the ages of Damas couple, they stated their relationship in their late teens/early twenties; same age as Rihanna & Chris. I remember how many of your readers gave him a pass because it was young love... see where young love got Guerline Damas? Please update your story.
They caught the murdering dog in Haiti. Now it’s just a matter of how fast they can process the extradition papers and get him back here to fry.
Convicted felon and woman beater chris Brown shed his shirt on day 2 of his court ordered community service in Richmond, Virginia today -- to the delight of a female police officer.
He then walked around shirtless while tweeting updates from the work site where he toiled for 8 hours clearing brush and weeds.
My question is, what kind of community service is this? Yesterday, it was reported that Brown took numerous breaks from work and he was seen laughing and clowning with his bodyguard while waving at his adoring fans.
This is hardly punishment for battering and bloodying his ex-girlfriend Rihanna's face.
TMZ.com has pics of woman beater Chris Brown picking up trash by the side of a highway in Richmond, Virginia as part of his court ordered community service. Brown pleaded guilty to domestic assault on singer Rihanna last month in a California courtoom. I bet he never worked this hard in his life!
According to ContactMusic.com, Rihanna is set to blast her former boyfriend Chris Brown on her upcoming CD!
This is good news to her fans who feared she might give in and go back to the deranged woman beater.
According to CM, Ne-Yo, who is working with the 21-year-old singer on the record, said: "Expect an edgier, almost angrier Rihanna on this one. Rihanna says some things on this album that you've never heard her say before."
He said: "I'm not supposed to say anything but I'm going to work on as many songs as possible with her. I'm going to lighten her up. I don't want an angry Rihanna."
By the way, Brown hasn't gotten the memo that it's over between the two of them. He's acting like a crazed stalker on Twitter.com. Earlier today he wrote:
"MY HEART IS INCOMPLETE... the part that is complete is my love for fans, career, friends, familyâ€¦ God. But I'm missing someone or something (sic)."
He then posted a link to a YouTube video featuring that wack track he wrote for Rihanna titled "Changed Man." The video features pictures of CB and Rihanna together in happier times. Get a life punk!
A shook Virginia Councilman today took back every word he said to a TMZ.com reporter about Chris Brown's community service hard labor.
Councilman Doug Conner told the reporter -- in great detail -- how the convicted felon and woman beater would report for work at 8 a.m. where he would be bussed to a roadside site to begin pulling up weeds and clearing brush.
Bloggers anticipated the moment when we would see the images of Chris Brown wearing a bright orange reflector vest -- sweat dripping from his brow as he toiled in the blazing sun with that dumb expression on his face.
Ah, but it was too good to be true. The Councilman denies saying any of it.
Here is his press release:
"The statements and information ascribed to me yesterday in the article on the celebrity news website TMZ regarding singer Chris Brown are inaccurate and untrue.
I have no personal knowledge of, or information regarding, the singer Chris Brown. In speaking to a TMZ reporter, I simply related my experience with my own individual monthly District Cleanup Project in which I utilize the services of a community service program administered by the Richmond Sheriff's Office.
Some points I want to make very clear are:
I have no knowledge of any legal arrangements regarding Chris Brown.
Richmond, Virginia does not have a 'hard labor program.'
Virginia Commonwealth University does not have gang graffiti.
I have no knowledge of any clothing attire regarding the singer Chris Brown.
I have no knowledge of any times or schedules regarding anything to do with the singer Chris Brown.
I have no knowledge of any purported duties regarding the singer Chris Brown.
I have no knowledge of any purported management or supervision regarding the singer Chris Brown.
Richmond does not have a 'Department of Corrections.'
I am unaware of any purported transportation arrangements regarding Chris Brown." Read more...
Yes, I realize there are other actors in the movie, but does it matter? Let's be real, the main reason everyone will be going to the theater is to see T.I., not Chris Brown (who I hear has a tiny part anyway). But doesn't this movie come out in February of 2010? I've heard of advance promo, but this is ridiculous.
Speaking ofd ridiculous, here's the totally Photoshopped movie poster. Hayden Christensen's neck is black. There's a lot of fake images floating around the Internets lately.
Don't you hate it when young ungrateful punks show a lack of respect for those veterans who helped paved the way for their success?
As I told you earlier, Chris Brown arrived at JFK today and tweeted that one of the photographers "looked like Wendy Williams."
As many times as the Diva Wendy Williams played this punk Chris Brown's records on her show, he had the nerve to disrespect her? Well Wendy responded today in her own unique way. But if I were her I wouldn't have responded to that convict. Once a woman hater, always a wonan hater.
Notice how he's talking sht about successful black women lately? I bet he wouldn't disrespect Larry King on Twitter -- or anyone he thinks he needs to resurrect his flopped career.
CHRIS BROWN V. WENDY WILLIAMS - On Friday's episode (9/11/09) of THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW, host Wendy Williams responds to today's "tweet" from R&B star and former Rihanna flame Chris Brown (whose Twitter name is Mechanical Dummy). According to Williams, Brown told followers that when he arrived at JFK, that, "one of the guyz looked like wendy williams or was it the other way around....lol." Not willing to let that one slide without a response, Williams, who was taping her talk show when the Brown tweet went 'round the world, used her television platform to set the record straight. Commenting on the tweet, she said..."in other words, he's calling me a man. Well you know, at least if I was a man then I would spend my time bullying other men, perhaps, and not..women."
Taped live in New York, The Wendy Williams Show combines the latest buzz and hot topics with a diverse mix of celebrities from the arenas of film, music, sports and television. Williams' bold personality and irreverent and witty commentary on life make for a groundbreaking talk format that entertains viewers and quenches their thirst for honest, enlightening and entertaining television. A successful radio personality and author, Williams' show delivers even more Wendy to her loyal fan base across the nation and introduces her to an even broader audience. Whether she is offering real advice during her "Ask Wendy" segments, providing her take on the latest headlines during the always surprising "Hot Topics," or getting up close and personal with headline makers, celebrities or everyday people, Williams' fresh approach and love of life and laughter shines through in every hour.
At some point celebrities are going to figure out that Twitter is the devil -- just like when they found out that Myspace wasn't all that great for their careers.
Brown arrived in NYC today sporting 3-day old stubble on his chin and looking haggard and disheveled. He was met by hordes of paparazzi and he immediately took to his twitter to tweet that they were "rude," and that one of them "looked like Wendy Williams." Should Wendy be insulted?
Hopefully Chris won't need to promote his wack album on her popular TV show any time soon.
One day the paps won't care about Chris Brown (like I don't now), and his punk azz will be just another washed up, has-been singer with a criminal record.
The LAPD's investigation into that leaked police evidence photo of pop singer Rihanna's bloody face covered in bruises, has been completed.
According to ContactMusic, two female LAPD cops have been suspended. The photo was leaked to the Internet by TMZ.com, which reportedly paid $68,000 for the image.
The photo was snapped during a police investigation after Rihanna was viciously beaten by her then boyfriend Chris Brown as the two sat in a rented Lamborghini in the early morning hours of February 9, 2009.
The cops' homes, cars, offices, lockers and bank accounts were searched as part of the investigation into the leaked photo.
The officers, one based at the Wilshire Area station and the other at Hollenbeck, face disciplinary charges and possible termination if their involvement with the leaked photo can be proven.
Brown pleaded guilty to domestic assault last month and was sentenced to 5 years probation and community service.
Convicted felon Chris Brown is ready for hard labor clearing brush, overgrown weeds and picking up trash on the highways of his native Virginia, as part of his community service sentence.
Brown, who posted pics of his kiddie wonderland land home on his Twitter account last week, will be picked up at 8 a.m. by the Department of Corrections every morning along with 30 other inmates, and bused to his work detail area in Richmond, Virginia.
Once there, Brown will work 8 hours cutting weeds, clearing brush and picking up trash in a bright orange reflective vest.
According to TMZ.com, he'll also have to trim brush along medians, remove gang graffiti from the VCU campus, and wash the inside and outside of law enforcement vehicles.
A supervisor will keep an eye out for Brown to make sure he doesn't cut corners. We're sure TMZ and the paparazzi will also keep an eye out for him.
Speaking of graffiti, Brown posted pics of his graffiti filled walls at his Virginia home on his Twitter account as I mentioned earlier. The pics depict a boy who accumulated his wealth too soon and now suffers from the same Peter Pan syndrome that afflicted Michael Jackson.
His home looks like a 5-year-old's playground. Judging from the pics, Brown has money but he is still immature and juvenile in his thinking. I fear for any female who becomes entangled in a relationship with this spoiled, immature rich kid.
Michael Jackson's older brother Jermaine is busy trying to salvage his Michael Jackson Tribute concert in Vienna after online media floated rumors that the two biggest names on the lineup won't appear.
According to to Reuters, Jermaine, 54, confirms that Mary J. Blige will be busy at a fashion event in Italy that same day. But he claims she will fly in to perform the second half of the concert, which is scheduled for Sept. 26.
We already know that Chris Brown is a convicted felon who probably can't leave the country without permission from his probation officer. But Jermaine says, "He wants to be here. It's just up to what he's going through with his court case right now. "He's definitely going to be here."
Jackson also denied rumors that his family refuse to throw their full support behind the tribute concert.
"I invited my mother, I invited my brothers and sisters as well," he said during a news conference in London. "I am not happy with the talk being said in the press about the support isn't there. My mother from the very start supported this."
Of course he's referring to TMZ's report that his mother, Katherine Jackson, and brothers question why Jermaine is holding a tribute concert in a city that has no connection to Michael.
People magazine asked Brown about the fact that Oprah did "a show on abuse, inspired by Rihanna." Chris replied:
"I commend Oprah on being like, 'This is a problem,' but it was a slap in my face. I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school. She could have been more helpful, like, 'Okay, I'm going to help both of these people out.'"
TMZ called Oprah for a comment, and Oprah's rep sent TMZ the following response:
"Oprah is very appreciative that Chris Brown performed at her school but she takes domestic abuse very seriously. She hopes he gets the counseling he needs."
I did cave in and watch part of Chris Brown's pre-taped appearance on the Larry King Live Show which aired on CNN last night. I agree with my readers who say Chris Brown sounds like he's illiterate and slow. It's hard to believe Rihanna once slept with that idiot. It's beginning to dawn on me that Rihanna may not be the class act that she portrays herself to be.
In an exclusive story posted on its website, OK! magazine claims Rihanna still has feelings for Chris. The magazine quotes one of Rihanna's attorneys as saying, not only doesn’t Rihanna think the restraining order against Chris is needed, but she still hasn’t given up on the idea of taking him back.
“Though Rihanna does not object to the sentence, she did feel it was unnecessary to have the restraining order in place for five years,” Rihanna’s attorney, Donald Etra, tells OK!. Sources close to the star say she favors a less severe order that would only require Chris not to annoy or harass her.
“She really doesn’t see the necessity of keeping an entire football-field length between them,” one insider says. “She’s forgiven him. And he is remorseful.”
Additionally, a friend of Rihanna's tells OK! that “Chris really wants to see her.”
“She gets missing Chris and the sh*t starts all over. A kiss and a slap, a kiss and a slap. Right now, she’s feeling strong. But she’s switched gears in the past and taken him back.”
Chris Brown is an idiot -- and so is everybody in his camp for allowing him to go on Larry King Live totally unprepared to come clean about what he did. This boy is clearly not remorseful for the acts that have derailed his career.
Instead of showing remorse, he pretends not to remember slapping, punching or biting Rihanna in the early hours of Feb. 8. When Brown called Rihanna's assistant Melissa on her cell phone that night -- it was to ask her if Rihanna had called the police on him. He didn't even ask how Rihanna was doing!
On the Larry King Show pre-taping, when his enabler mom Joyce reminds Brown that he told her all the details of what happened that night back in February, Chris goes, "gosh, I'm like wow, gee willickers... did I do thaaaat?"
I'm disappointed in Larry King for catering to this nonsense. The question remains: why DID Chris Brown go on Larry king Live if all he was going to do was sit up there and tell lies?
There is dumb, and then there is dumber. But singer Chris Brown is clearly the dumbest celebrity to ever be interviewed by CNN's Larry King.
Even with Chris Brown's mother sitting right beside him offering her support during a pre-taping of King's show on Wednesday, Brown still couldn't get his lies straight.
Brown responded to a question from King about the pre-Grammy night beating of Rihanna that ended in his arrest, by saying he couldn't remember anything.
After the furur and outcry went up from women's groups everywhere, Brown hurriedly released a prepared statement:
"There have been reports on the Internet that I didn't remember what happened that night with Rihanna. I want to try and set things straight.
That 30 seconds of the interview they used of me was taken from a one hour interview during which that same question was asked something like 4 or 5 times -- and when you look at the entire interview you will see it is not representative of what I said.
The first four times - or how ever many times it was - I gave the same answer -- which was that I didn't think it was appropriate for me to talk about what happened that night. I said it was not right for me and it really wasn't fair to Rihanna. The fifth time - or whatever it was - I just misspoke. I was asked, "Do you remember doing it?" and I said, "No."
Bitch boy goes on to say, "Of course I remember what happened."
Of course you do Chris. You're just the worst actor in Hollywood and you couldn't get your lies straight.
My question is, if Brown didn't want to talk about what happened that night, why did he even consent to appear on Larry King Live?
If you thought Chris Brown would open up and be truthful about his violent episode with ex-girlfriend Rihanna back in February -- think again. Larry King was duped by Brown's camp into thinking he would talk about the events that took place that night. But instead of being forthright and honest about his bitch fit, he sat there and lied his ass off claiming not to remember anything from that night.
Rihanna should sue Chris Brown for everything he owns.
His mama, who is as sorry as her son, also appears on the program which airs on Wednesday. As I said before, I won't be watching.
