Chris Brown‘s private plane filled with smoke outside of Burbank, California shortly after take-off yesterday and had to make an emergency landing. What a shame. Not that it happened, but that Chris Brown didn’t jump out with a parachute to save himself, only to find that the ripcord was broken. I think you get my point.
A private jet carrying Chris Brown was forced to make an emergency landing in Burbank yesterday after the cockpit filled with smoke after takeoff … TMZ has learned.
We’ve confirmed … Brown boarded a Gulfstream 3 jet in Burbank and was headed for Teterboro, NJ … so he could attend the Met Gala event.
But sources tell us … roughly 7 to 8 minutes into the flight, everyone on board began to notice smoke filling the plane.
One source told us, “It was A LOT of smoke … everywhere.”
The pilot immediately turned the plane around and performed an emergency landing back at Burbank airport.
We’re told the passengers were scared … but the pilot was cool, calm and collected … and couldn’t have handled the situation better.
Here’s the crazy part — after the plane touched down, Brown decided he STILL wanted to get to the Met Gala event in NY … and boarded ANOTHER private jet within an hour of touching down.

Chris Brown and Rihanna have more drama than a Meryl Streep movie (love you, Meryl!), so there’s always some story floating around about how they’re broken up and then back together again or they’re getting married and Rihanna’s pregnant and blah blah blah. After the couple’s recent social media bust-up, Chris Brown apparently did an interview confirming that the pair had split and that he considers himself to be single.
On Australia’s Kyle O & Jackie Show, Chris said (via DS):
“I actually have three birthday parties scheduled: one in LA, one in Vegas, and one in New York, so we can go ahead and have fun, and I’m just trying to have the best time and basically celebrate with all my fans and all the people that’s in the club and the parties.”
When asked what the best present he could receive would be, Brown said peace of mind, but added: “You know, I’m 24, I’m going to be in Las Vegas, so I really want to see as many girls as possible.”
Kyle Sandilands then asked Brown what his “status” was, and whether he would be partying alone, to which the rapper said: “Yeah, I’m gonna do it solo.”
Brown, who turned 24 on Sunday (May 5), continued: “The way I look at it is… I’m always going to love that person, but people have differences, and people have different wants and needs.”
“At the end of the day she’s a young girl. I can’t really be focused on wife-ing somebody that young… and I’m young too.”
“I just got to step forward and be a man and be the best Chris Brown I can be instead of worrying about whoever else is going to be in my side pocket.”
So, basically you want to f-ck a lot of different women (all of whom have to be dumb enough to actually want to f-ck you despite you being a total shitbag) but then maybe come back to Rihanna when her tour is over? I don’t know, I mean, whatever with these two. Listen to Chris’s whole interview (if you dare) below:

Relationships taking place on/ending because of social media is something that should be limited to the 12-16 age group, and yet grown ass adults are still obsessed with posting their every action with their significant other all over Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, tumblr and whatever the f-ck else is out there to share shit on. I get it – you’re proud to be with your lady/man. Live it up! But I shouldn’t have to read about how “LOL Mark is sooooo gross he just farted and put my head under the cover OMGGG nasty but I love my man <3 <3 <3″ every five seconds. Kill me now.
Anyway, Chris Brown, Rihanna and Drake haven’t got the message on this, apparently, because all this drama is unfolding over bullshit that’s not even anything and totally doesn’t matter. Here’s how it apparently went down: Rihanna decided to follow Drake on Instagram and liked one of his photos. Because Drake is Chris Brown’s mortal enemy, Chris decided to unfollow Rihanna on Twitter less than 24 hours after that. Instead, Chris is now following his ex-girfriend, Karrueche Tran. LOL to all of this.
Drake hasn’t said anything to anyone, so he’s not really part of this whole nonsense. He’s probably writing poetry by candlelight (the candle which illuminates his Rihanna shrine, natch) and thinking that it was totally worth it to steal a strand of her hair from a hotel pillowcase for his love potion. It’s working, Drake! It’s really working!
Chris Brown must be pretty insecure if he thinks an Instagram follow means anything besides “I’m too lazy to look up your profile every time I wanna creep on what you’re doing so I guess I’ll put you in my timeline”. Rihanna does seem like the type to f-ck with Chris, though, and this is one situation in which I actually support such behaviour.

Chris Brown is just basically awful in every way at this point (although he still isn’t even the #1 most hated celebrity — that goes to Gwyneth), and not a good boyfriend candidate for Rihanna. Though Brown claims they’re not together, I think it’s bullshit.
Even Chris Brown’s dad, Clinton Brown, says they’re back together and that it’s a bad idea. He told The New York Daily News,
I personally really didn’t want him and Rihanna back together.
His phrasing suggests that they are in fact a couple again. He goes on to sort of explain why he is against it.
You have to have a balance in a relationship. You have to have someone who is spontaneous and whimsical but you also have to have someone who is grounded and logical. … Is that a given — that you can’t have fortune and fame without (death) being the end result?
Boy, that escalated quickly.
Not that Brown isn’t obviously capable of violence — we’ve seen he’s really adept at that — but it’s troubling when your own dad theorizes that your relationship could end you murdering the other person.
I don’t even know what to say about these two anymore.

Chris Brown is a hated celebrity but apparently not as much as Anne Hathaway (which James Franco totally gets, btw). Star magazine released their super scientific list of top 20 most hated Hollywood celebrities. Weirdly Jay Leno is more hated than Chris Brown, which is making me laugh really hard. Here’s the stupid list:
20. Chris Brown
19. Jesse James
18. Taylor Swift
17. Shia LaBeouf
16. Lindsay Lohan
15. Angelina Jolie
14. Jay Leno
13. Ashton Kutcher
12. LeAnn Rimes
10 and 11. Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian
9. Anne Hathaway
8. Justin Bieber
6. Matt Lauer
5. Katherine Heigl
4. John Mayer
3. Jennifer Lopez
2. Kristen Stewart
1. Gwyneth Paltrow
This is a pretty good list. I’m shocked to see that Kanye West isn’t on here. I love him but I thought he was one of the most hated people around. I’m not sure if he’s psyched or pissed not to be included. I also didn’t realize that people hated Matt Lauer this much. Damn. Too bad this poll was taken after Justin Bieber’s idiotic Anne Frank statement or I’m sure he would be higher up. Kristen Stewart now has the dubious honor of being one of the most hated and least attractive female celebrities. Hey, good for her! At least she’s good at stuff!
Who is your ultimate most hated celebrity?

Because, of course, it’d be impossible for a star to just let another star’s shit talk to roll right off their backs without responding (especially in the hip hop world), Drake has hit back (pun intended, I guess) at Chris Brown for calling him gay and generally being a total shit stain. In this case, I think he gets a pass.
During an interview with the Keep It Thoro radio show, Drake basically said what we all know: his music’s better than Chris’s, he f-cked Rihanna and she liked it and… he’s willing to make peace?
“His insecurities are the fact that I make better music than him, that I’m more popping than him and that at one point in life the woman that he loves fell into my lap.
“I did what a real n***a would do and treated her with respect. We have an issue and it’s either gonna drag out, or maybe in ten years we’ll laugh about it over drinks. Just let us solve that shit.”
LOL. Well, okay. Drake cracks me up – he tries to go hard talking about dropping bodies and shit and then he rounds it all up by saying the equivalent of, “But we could totally work it out if he wants to talk about it.” Ever the peace maker, that Aubrey. (And reminds me of Big Ghost’s review of Take Care – if you haven’t read it, do yourself a favour.) But seriously – Drake’s music is SO much better than Brown’s. That alone should say everything there is to say.
