The chat happened in mid-August, a couple weeks before hip hop mogul Suge Knight and others were reportedly shot at Brown’s pre-MTV Video Music Awards party (is Breezy a magnet for utter darkness or what?), but…

Chris Brown Borrows Britney’s “Work Bitch” Pool For His “New Flame” Video: Watch

Chris Brown unveiled his “New Flame” video this afternoon (August 14) and my mind immediately wandered to Britney Spears“Work Bitch” extravaganza.

Chris Brown Unveils His ‘X’ Album Cover, Improves On ‘Graffiti’ And ‘F.A.M.E.’

Chris Brown is something of a serial offender when it comes to terrible covers. F.A.M.E. was a multi-colored mess, while Graffiti looked like the bad movie poster. It’s something of a relief then that his much-delayed X opus (due September 16) benefits from simple but effective artwork. He didn’t need to use an old picture (Breezy look…

Drake And Chris Brown Return To The Studio

Drake and Chris Brown recently hit the studio, as shown in a new photo. (TMZ says that Drake posted it, although it doesn’t appear on the rapper’s social media accounts.)
