Chris Brown has a homemade video up on YouTube. I don’t really know what he says. He hasn’t yet learned about the power of a verbal pause. I think the general message that he wanted to get out was that hedoesn’tnormallymakevideosbuthewantedtosay’hi’andhe’sworkingonanewalbumandhe’snotamonster. Yo.
If you’re looking for the unedited and entirely fascinating ten minute video of Chris Brown and Bow Wow bowling and talking about how much bloggers lie, click here.
And since Chris Brown thinks bloggers lie so much, I’d like to live up to his expectations (you know how I hate to disappoint.): Chris Brown has a lengthy and successful career ahead of him.

I feel bad for fans of pop country. It seems like most of the entertainment industry regards country as a safe haven where anyone whose career is on its last legs can record some mediocre tripe and score some cash — Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and now Chris Brown.
After beating the crap out of special lady friend Rihanna, Brown has decided to take himself one step closer to becoming a sad caricature of trailer park life and will release a country song called “Trapped in a Dream” on his next album.
“Maybe we’ll see an appearance from Carrie Underwood or someone like that,” said Robert Allen, a writer and producer who is currently working with the singer. “It’s that kind of song.” Allen further explained that the song is “just feeling like you don’t want that dream to go away. Everybody has a dream and you’re in it, but you wake up and you’re like, ‘Oh, my God.’ You feel like you’re still in that dream.”
More like being trapped in a nightmare.
Knowing what little I know of Carrie Underwood, I think it’s safe to say that she won’t be coming within swinging distance of Brown or his country tune. Maybe he should give Leann Rimes a call? I hear she isn’t too picky about who she partners up with.

Check out this new track from Lady GaGa and Rihanna — it’s called “Silly Boy,” and the lyrics would suggest that Rihanna still believes she’s a good girl, and that perhaps Chris Brown blew it for good. Man, I hope so. As far as PR moves go, though, this is a bright one for Rihanna — team up with another hot artist so the heat’s not all on her, and sing about a dude who messed everything up with an awesome girl. Very smart.

It’s been kind of quiet on the Chris Brown and Rihanna front as he busily works on getting out of the legal jam he’s in and she works on moving forward with her career.
Though the rumored sex tape hasn’t surfaced yet, naked pictures of Rihanna have finally hit the internet. She obviously took the pictures of herself which leads to the question of who got access to the pictures?
The uncensored pictures are here and totally NSFW. Unless perinea are suitable for your workplace in which case these pics are totally okay.

JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU KNEW!
Because his lawyer is doing all sorts of shady stuff to try to delay the case and confuse the matter. The LA court has agreed to yet another extension, with the next hearing set for May 28. Meanwhile, Chris’s lawyer is trying to get the case dismissed entirely due to evidence leaks, like the pic of Rihanna’s injuries.
“If Geragos makes an issue of leaked evidence, it’s unlikely the judge will dismiss the case,” says L.A. criminal defense attorney Jeffery Rubenstein, who’s not involved in the case. “It’s not police conduct at issue here, it’s Chris Brown’s.”
Hopefully the judge AND the public can keep that in mind. The ONLY issue here is that one person violently assaulted another.

Well, I can’t believe I’m about to write these words but apparently Mike Tyson is doling out advice regarding domestic violence. Feel free to take a moment to let that sink in.
And maybe I’m being overcritical, but there’s something about how he calls women “them” during an interview with MTV that doesn’t sit well with me. Who ever knew a pronoun could sound offensive?
“You can’t abuse them,” he tells MTV. “It’s really sick what you [can] do. She has a space in your heart and you believe you care about her more than anybody in the world.
“Do I think it’s right to beat up a woman? No — hell no,” he adds. “Have I hit a woman before? Hell yeah. Was I wrong? Hell yeah. I’m a product of that environment. Do I regret ever doing that? Hell yeah. Would I do it again? Never.”
He shared his opinion on the Chris Brown/Rihanna debacle as well:
It’s none of my business, but you know what I say about that? I understand the situation. I understand passion with young kids,” Tyson, 42, tells MTV News.
“My personal opinion about that is, he’s just a baby,” adds the former heavyweight champ, who is the subject of a new documentary, Tyson, out Friday. “He’s just a little baby that don’t know how to handle his emotions when it comes to a woman. And he probably hears this and thinks, ‘I know how to handle my emotions’; we all think we do.
“But the fact [is],” Tyson continues, “you look at this person and you might be crazy in love, but we don’t know how to handle those feelings.”
What could have led Brown to beat Rihanna, 21? Tyson blames a “pimp mentality” that is prevalent among young people. “Now you’re a fly guy and a cool guy [you think] … you have to be hard like that,” he says.
Listen, I’m happy anytime a celeb takes a stand against domestic violence. In some ways, it’s even more meaningful coming out of Mike Tyson’s mouth since he’s had a penchant in the past for punching women in the mouth and has a rap sheet the length of my inseam to prove it. But why the excuses? Why does it have to be about “pimp mentality” and youth? Why can’t it just be totally effing unacceptable?
