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.

Yo, if you’re going to sue someone for some bodily harm, wouldn’t you do that shit immediately after it happened? Well, you’re clearly not Chris Brown‘s bodyguard Patrick Strickland, who just now filed a lawsuit against Drake and the W.i.P nightclub in New York over the brawl between Drake and Brown that happened last June.
I’m sure you remember the (boring) details: Drake apparently taunted poor Chris over the fact that he, too, f-cked Rihanna and she really liked it. This made Chris mad, Cristal bottles were thrown, lips were busted, blah blah blah. (Side note: Drake is wayyyy too thirsty, but that’s a whole other issue.) In any case, Strickland apparently got his head busted in the midst of all this and now he wants Drake and the club to pay up.
From The New York Post:
Hired muscle Patrick Strickland snidely refers to Drake as “a popular and successful, albeit critically derided, entertainer,” in his lawsuit filed Monday in Manhattan Supreme Court.
Strickland, 43, who hails from Queens Village, claims the hot spot, W.i.P., is responsible for the ugly head cut he suffered during the melee because it sat Brown’s entourage and Drake’s crew near each other, even though staffers knew the celebrities were beefing over sultry R&B songstress Rihanna.
The seating arrangement created “a substantial and unjustifiable risk that a mass altercation would occur between the two camps,” the suit for an unspecified amount of damages states.
Moreover, the club over-served Drake and his posse, and had an employee hand Brown a note from Drake that read: “I’m f–king the love of your life,” according to the Strickland suit.
The note allegedly led to a “verbal altercation” and that caused a “massive bar brawl that involved bottle throwing, possible gunshots and a general state of riot and disorder,” the suit charges.
Strickland was hit in the head and required stitches, reports said at the time. The suit says he endured “severe and disfiguring injuries to his face, head and eyes.”
Okay, how are you gonna blame a club for where you’re sitting? Last time I checked, club tables don’t come with chains and handcuffs – so get your ass up from the chair and move somewhere else, for God’s sake. And don’t get started on the whole cultural aspect of it and the fact that Brown’s camp wouldn’t have wanted to move and seem “weak” (remember, this is Drake on the other end, anyway). If that’s how they felt, then that’s fine and well, but you don’t then go boo hoo-ing your way into court when that decision backfires on your ass. Though I’m not sure what’s worse, a lawsuit or a song calling your enemy gay.

The link goes to a photo of her wearing a yellow dress (see above).
But the worst is that yesterday she tweeted with a link to a photo of her and Chris Brown smiling and having a grand ole time. Here’s the tweet:
Here is the photo:
They allegedly just broke up, but whatever, friends totally cuddle in cars and take photos of themselves that they know are going to give them a lot of publicity.
So, whatever. Whatever Rihanna. Also it says a lot when Amanda Bynes’ tweets make more sense than yours. At least she’s direct.
