Chris Brown - With You \/\/TOP\\\\
In this excerpt from "The Song Machine: Inside The Hit Factory," author John Seabrook describes the night of February 8, 2009, when singer Rihanna left a pre-Grammy party with then-boyfriend singer Chris Brown, based on a police officer's account in an affidavit.
Chris Brown - With You
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the rehab facility imposed the 2-foot rule because of the Rihanna case -- specifically, that he beat her. The people who run the facility imposed the highly unusual rule, and we're told Chris violated it by touching elbows and hands with a woman.
He's currently being held in jail without bail. His lawyer, Mark Geragos, will appear in court Monday with Brown in an attempt to get him freed. We're guessing Geragos will ask for house arrest until the D.C. trial.
The exact issue Brown has with West isn't known, however, the rhymer's Donda album was released yesterday with a song titled "New Again" that features the singer. Seems like Brown may have an issue with his part on the song.
"Thank you, thank you, thank you for your mercy, make me new/Make me new again, make me new again/Make me new again, make me new again/I repent for everything that I'ma do again/Make me new again, make me new again/Make me new again," he sings along with West on "New Again."
Chris Brown sent his fans into overdrive after launching his own OnlyFans account. A screenshot of the page began circulating across social media after fans wondered how candid Breezy was really about to get on the site, which is known for its explicit content. Many fans assumed the page will be filled with videos of Breezy showing off his dance moves rather than anything too racy. Picture: Getty
Yes, that's right, a petrol station. When he was just 13-years-old the talented singer was hanging with his dad who was then working at a petrol station when a local production company came in and discovered him.
Breezy said in an interview with Ebony: "It's the Roman numeral for 10. 5/5/89 is my birthday: 5 plus 5 is 10, and this is my tenth year since I got into music. 'X' is the 24th letter in the alphabet, and I will turn 24 when this album comes out. 'X' is also a metaphor, as in 'ex-girlfriend': it implies you're progressing and moving on in life, not holding on to the past and your old ways."
After moving to New York, Brown was soon scouted by A&R executive Tina Davis, and subsequently signed his first record deal with Jive Records (whose alumni include pop singers Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake) in 2004. His debut, self-titled album, released the following year reached No.2 on the US Billboard charts and was soon certified double platinum.
I was very excited to see "Chris Brown Performing Live", as the tickets stated while purchasing. Once I was at the venue, the overall ambience was nice and seemed promising. The opening performers added hype to the night by repeating, "Who is ready for Chris Brown?" As the clock ticked away and Chris Brown never appeared, my self, my guest, and those around me grew more and more upset and antsy. Everyone was questioning where the main act, Chris Brown, was. At around 1:30 AM, it became apparent that Chris Brown was not going to show. The stage filled with talentless acts taking snapchats and acting foolish. No one cared about these people, and the crowd turned sour. At around 1:40AM, they played a Chris Brown music video, which, again, no one cared about. We were all there to see "Chris Brown Performing Life", once again, as the tickets stated. Finally, as if trying to pull wool over the attendees eyes, a fool on stage announced, "Are you all having fun? This was a Chris Brown video release party." As soon and myself and many others heard that, we had complete affirmity that Chris Brown was a no-show. Living in Orange County, it was quite a drive getting to Downtown Los Angeles, and parking wasn't cheap. I would have appreciated the knowledge of Chris Browns lack of presence as soon as they venue/ performers/ respective people knew. I am very displeased with the unprofessionalism and the offended by the act of lying to the crowd. This experience will influence whether or not I choose to purchase tickets from SongKick or the Belasco Theater again.
This concert was without a doubt one hell of a nite!!! The opening acts were awesome already. They started unbelievably punctual and created a great atmosphere. My personal favorite of them was August Alsina who really got the party going when he entered the stage with his song Numb. The main show was just awesome. Chris Brown performed both some of his older songs as well as the ones on his latest album. He showed off his great dancing skills and made every single girl in the audience go crazy by pulling up his shirt and showing us his six pack. Towards the end of the concert some of the supporting acts entered the stage and performed with him which was just so fun to watch. When the show was over I was just so sweaty and my feet and cheeks hurt from constantly dancing and smiling. I was incredibly thirsty but even for that the event organizer had an awesome solution. They gave away Coke and Coke Zero cans at the entrance FOR FREE which was just the best idea ever. I had never experienced a concert that was that organized and well-conceived before. All in all it was an awesome night and I'd recommend attending a Chris Brown concert to everybody who likes this kind of music and just wants to have a good time. As I already said it was ONE HELL IF A NITE!
Quite a few years of bad press and some very public run ins with the law have meant that Chris Brown has lost some of his credibility as an artist. It seems that many have forgotten that since the age of 16, he has provided us with some of the biggest RnB and Hip-Hop hits of the last decade.
Seeing Chris at the Indigo2 in 2009 was one of my best concert experiences ever, hands-down. Just 19 years old at the time, he commanded the stage and the audience with a presence far wiser than his years. His expert dance moves and voice to match have drawn comparisons to some of the biggest artists such as Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake.
Although, that is not to say that Chris has given up on music and still endeavours to wow crowds with his R & B/pop and international hits. Beginning his set with a barrage of stage lights and pyrotechnics, the intro to 'Beautiful People' begins to play out around the arena and the crowd cheer from below.
i was VERY upset with the stage set up. i paid 900.00 for 2 tickets in the 2nd row. the stage was so high up that we could NOT see most of the show, unless he was right at our side of the stage. we could not see him dancing and had to watch most of the show on the TV screens. that is Not what i Paid for. i was very upset and disappointed.
First Hoody Baby and supporting act. Then August Alsina. 30 min break and the great man himself appeared. The arena was electrified by this time, screaming singing dancing and that was just the crowd. Sang nearly all his popular hit records, dancers and backdrops were great. Anybody that hasn't seen Chris Brown perform before (My first concert) should go, even if you're not Team Breezy - my daughter who came with me isn't a fan but she enjoyed her night too.
On Monday, Grammy-nominated singer Kehlani Parrish posted a photo on Instagram of her arm, with an IV in it. She captioned it, "I wanted to leave this Earth. Being completely selfish for once. Never thought I'd get to such a low point." Friends reportedly found her unconscious in her Los Angeles home, following a highly-public storm of rumors she'd cheated on her boyfriend, NBA star Kyrie Irving, with an ex-boyfriend. TMZ, meanwhile, reported that she'd been put in psychiatric hold.
Earlier in the week, her ex, Canadian singer/songwriter and rapper PartyNextDoor, posted an undated photo on Instagram of them holding hands in bed, with the caption, "After all her shenanigans, still got the r&b singer back in my bed." He has since deleted it. In her message, Kehlani wrote, "Don't believe the blogs you read. No one was cheated on and I'm not a bad person. Everyone is hurt and everyone is in a place of misunderstanding, but as of today I had no single wish to see tomorrow ... but God saved me for a reason, and for that I must be grateful cuz I'm not in heaven right now for a reason." She later posted a photo of PND by her her hospital bed, with the caption,"thank you for saving my life." She subsequently removed all of her social media.
So perhaps she and Irving had broken up, perhaps it was an old picture, anyway, the point is, slut shaming is toxic. And the singer's high-profile friends have been offering their public support for her. Charlie Puth tweeted, "I'm very upset hearing this news about my friend right now. Social media is a terrible thing sometimes. I'm glad you are ok....People have no idea how much their words can affect people. What happened to treating everyone with kindness and understanding." And Nick Cannon, whom she refers to as a supportive father figure, posted a photo of the two of them in a hug, with the caption, "Had to go grab my Youngen!" 041b061a72
