Billboard Magazine writes a LONG open letter to Rihanna about Chris Brown.

Here’s an open letter that Billboard Magazine just posted to Rihanna, regarding her relationship with Chris Brown. It’s surprisingly long – and worth the read. Read below!

Dearest Rih Rih:

A few months ago – before “Talk That Talk” gave you another Top 10 album on the Billboard 200, before you performed “We Found Love” and “Princess of China” at the Grammy Awards, before new rumors swirled that you were engaged in a secret romance with past flame Chris Brown, and certainly before yesterday’s reported news that Breezy was the guest star on your forthcoming “Birthday Cake” remix – you appeared on “Ellen” to discuss being named the sexiest woman alive by Esquire, among other things. During your interview, you shared your feelings on the concept of being a role model, and why, recently, you have not adhered to this expected albatross of musical stardom.

“I used to worry about it a lot. Then I realized the message I really want to send is not perfection – it’s individuality,” you said in the November 2011 sit-down. “Being who you really are, knowing who you really are and being just that. There’s only one of you, so just be that.”

Over the past few weeks, as new murmurs linking you and Chris Brown became shouts, I kept thinking about your words, kept rolling them around in my mind and trying to make sense of the key word in your declaration, “individuality.” Over the course of your career, your ability to adopt new looks and sounds without losing your indispensable sense of self has been nothing short of staggering, and has no doubt become the bedrock of your longevity. From the dancehall princess of “Pon de Replay” to the stylish hip-pop diva of “Umbrella” to the militant provocateur of “Hard” to the sex-starved rave maven of “S&M,” no one — not even Madonna! — has been able to strike so many successful poses in such a short amount of time. It’s been damn impressive to witness, and even more fun to listen to. CONTINUE READING (more…)

Chris Brown attended Rihanna’s birthday party where they were “all over each other”

Chris Brown attended Rihanna’s birthday party on Monday night, and he was very paranoid people were going to find out about it. The a**hole singer was so freaked out about keeping his attendance a secret, he actually tried to force partygoers to sign a confidentiality agreement.

According to TMZ, Chris refused to enter the private party at the famous Hearst Mansion in Beverly Hills until everyone inside signed a NDA. He sent his people in beforehand to gather the signatures.

Everyone didn’t sign, but Chris went in anyway, and ended up spending most of his night all over Rihanna.

According to sources, the two got real intimate — sitting next to each other, talking, and holding hands … all perfectly legal ever since the restraining order was lifted.

As for the rest of the party — we’re told it was jam-packed with celebs including Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and Chris Martin (no Gwyneth).

Rihanna’s cake was pretty badass too — a giant spliff … with a small Rihanna made out of icing, riding it like a horse.

Chris Brown remains classy: “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY. Now! That’s the ultimate F**K OFF.”

Chris Brown won the Grammy for Best R&B Album on Sunday. For the most part, everyone was pretty quiet about his return to the Grammy stage. (Other than Miranda Lambert, who slammed the singer.)

Considering Whitney Houston had just passed, maybe he got off a little easy in the media criticism department. His stage return also was the three-year anniversary of Brown’s horrific assault on then girlfriend, Rihanna.

I, for one, wasn’t happy to see him back on the stage. I know a lot of you jumped on me for not being able to “get over it” – which fine, you’re entitled to your own opinion. But so am I – and I wasn’t ready to see him back on the stage.

According to the Huffington Post, celebrities like Jack Osbourne, Michelle Branch and Eric Stonestreet expressed their dismay at seeing Brown honored.

Actor Wil Wheaton tweeted, “Everyone who apparently forgot what Chris Brown did to Rhianna should read the police report on exactly what he did.”

Those comments didn’t sit well with Brown, who responded by tweeting, “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY. Now! That’s the ultimate F**K OFF.”

Brown later deleted the tweet, but not before Mashable editor Christina Warren took a screen shot of the offending tweet.

There’s that cocky a**hole you’ve missed for the last three years!

Miranda Lambert rips Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj – don’t we agree with her?

Miranda Lambert is the only celebrity (that I could find) who spoke out about Chris Brown’s performance, and not in a positive way. The country star wrote these tweets below. (One thing I love about her is she made these comments, and she kept them up. She didn’t take them down, and apologize about them – she left them up and stands behind them.)

When Chris Brown came on stage at the Grammys last night, my kids were watching with me, and I felt compelled to tell them he is not a good guy. I realized I can’t get over it! I too, had a hard time just getting over what he did to Rihanna. It did seem weird to me that everyone was acting like it didn’t happen – and that he’s this amazing guy. I have a hard time with that one.

And Nicki Minaj DID SUCK. Wow – her first album was crazy good. But if this is a taste of what her new album is like, then NO THANKS. That was the biggest load of crap I’ve ever seen OR heard! I’m with Miranda. Can you believe how much time the Grammys gave her!? For that!?

Grammy Awards Red Carpet Looks: Rihanna, Paris Hilton And More

I don’t know if a lot of celebs avoided the red carpet before the Grammy Awards ceremony last night or what, but there aren’t a ton of photos to pick from this morning!  Here are a few of the highlights: Paris Hilton, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, and Kate Beckinsale.

Do you have any favorites from last night? I did love what Adele wore for her performance – it was simple and gorgeous.  She doesn’t need flashy and funky costumes to grab our attention – her voice is enough.
