Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Chris Brown’s a Baby

You know who needs to disappear? Chris Brown. That fool just cannot help himself. He’s still talking about how the whole “beating up Rihanna” thing was really hard on his reputation and that he’s actually a really nice guy. This morning he did that whole routine for the Mojo in the Morning radio show and he attempted to keep his shit relevant by relating himself to another bro we all hate right now, Tiger Woods.

“I think it’s cool man, I think people always deserve a second chance, and I know if my fans give me a second chance and people give me a second chance..whatever his personal life is and I think this goes for me and him; his personal life is his personal life – like nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on somebody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them—like they might be a fan, or might support what they’re doing but like if he plays golf, like that’s his sport, that’s his hobby, that’s his love, that’s what people love him for. They don’t love him for the other stuff that they talking bout. I think, even with me, like I do music, I sing songs, like I’m an entertainer, I’m a performer, but people make mistakes, I think people have to realize that everybody’s human, and the good thing is if you learn from your mistakes, then, then that’s a part of life, and I think that’s a part of living and learning from mistakes and becoming a better person, and growing from situations, so my hat is off to him—I support him, I hope he gets back on the field and does his thing, cause he is the best at it.”

Me me me me me. Jesus Christ. This guy’s head is so far up his own rectum that he doesn’t even realize what a self-involved moron he sounds like. He needs to be locked away in a closet until he gets the heck over himself. True.

Oh Damn! Rihanna Sneak Peek!

There’s an 18 second preview out of Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” video and it looks really good. There’s kind of a 90s theme going on with the hair, make up and black-and-white background. And also, there’s a zebra with balloons tied to it’s head. And the song is one of the best of her new album. Thank goodness she did something about that hair.

Some Cool People Wore Some Cool Clothes Last Night

Everyone was at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party last night. Everyone! Kelsey Grammer was there and he doesn’t even make music! The cool thing about this party though is that I feel like we got a little taste of what the fashion is going to be like tonight at the Grammys. In my personal opinion, the stars always look best at the Grammys. It’s a much more casual award show and rock stars and musicians are less likely (or more likely, depending on who we’re talking about) to make a huge to-do about their outfits. From these photos, I’m thinking we’re going to see a lot of distressed pieces and sparkles tonight.

Giving Hope to Haiti, One Rendition of “Halo” at a Time

Last night, George Clooney cobbled together a phone bank whose average adjusted gross income was higher than Haiti’s combined gross national product in all of the 90′s. The celebrity-manned phone lines and musical performances by Madonna, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Chris Martin, Bono, Jay-Z, Rihanna and more,  pulled in over $16 Million dollars.

Did any of you dial-a-celeb and phone in a donation? If you missed your chance, you can still contribute by preordering  any of the songs performed last night  on iTunes.

I applaud the stars’ desire to contribute to a good cause, but groaned when Beyonce inserted “Haiti” into her song “Halo.” I can’t stand it when artists insert words from current events willy-nilly into already established hit songs for the purposes of “tribute”. Bastardizing one of your already established hit singles just seems like such a lazy way out. I cringed when Elton John did it with “Candle in the Wind”, and Beyonce sure as shit ain’t no Elton John.

More telethon clips featuring Robert Pattinson and his facial hair, Madonna, JT, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, and Xtina after the jump.

Editor’s Note: As of this morning, the news services have upgraded the amount of money raised by the telethon to an estimated $57 Million!!

What is Going on With Rihanna’s Hair?

Hey, guys? I love Rihanna a lot, I think she’s great and I really have never said anything like this about her before, but what the hell is with her hair these days? I know she was in vacation mode for awhile and that explained the ode to Carrot Top that she had going on completely. I would never blame a woman for taking a time off of grooming to just do “you”, but I’m actually starting to really wonder here. 1) Was that color achieved on purpose and if so, what was the look they were going for? It’s a slightly more orange tint than her skin tone, typically not someone’s best color. 2) What’s with the cut? She can have the curls, but maybe wait until the cut’s grown out more, or HEY! Maybe not brush it all to the front like that. Maybe some bobby pins or something. She’s better than this hair.

Is This Matt Kemp Parody a Bit Mean?

This FunnyOrDie video parodying ads and Rihanna’s new beau is a little on the mean side for my tastes, but I bet some of you will see the humor in it. The actor who plays Matt cracks jokes about how he’s looking for a girl with “emotional baggage” (because she got beaten by her last boyfriend and doesn’t talk to her father, I guess) and that wants to share an umbrella. He also says he wants a woman with a has a whiney voice and pauses in front of the camera at the end to say over and over again that he does not hit chicks.

I suppose it’s a good thing that the person they are parodying is actually Rihanna’s new squeeze and this isn’t just some “audition tape to date Rihanna” or else I would think the whole idea is completely awful. I think that there would be a way to do a “Matt Kemp’s video” sketch without including half of the rude/outdated references they did, but hey! Maybe I’m just sensitive.

Rihanna Heats Up With an LA Dodger

It looks like Rihanna is going to be starting 2010 with a total fresh start. Her new album “Rated R” is fantastic and she seems to have completely moved on from Chris Brown like never before. In fact, Rihanna might have a new boyfriend in LA Dodgers outfielder, Matt Kemp. The two have been together in Mexico for a few days now and the paps have already caught them making out and grabbing at each other like a couple of horny teens.

This guy might just be good enough for Rihanna, too. His nickname on the field is “The Bison” because of those huge arms and his quick speed. It will be pretty great if these two stick together. After a fairly disastrous 2009 with a horrid excuse for a man, Rihanna deserves to find the kind of guy that this Matt Kemp character seems to be.
