Chris Brown brought his oh-so charismatic incisors to 106 & Porch on Monday (June 11) to debut the video for the Colin Tilley-directed “Don’t Wake Me Up” (watch it after the jump). The singer chatted it up with Terrence J about his new toy line, snagging a Grammy earlier this year, what music he is currently listening to and fielded questions from Team Breezy. When quizzed on what his favorite song lyric of the moment was, he sang a line from ex-girlfriend Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake.” Classy.
On winning a Grammy: “It’s just a blessing to be able to perform and go through what I went through, my trials and tribulations, and to be able to overcome it and be able to say I got a Grammy, I’m doing my thing, it’s great. I ain’t buy it!”
Chris Rock and wife Malaak Compton-Rock, daughters Lola and Zahara along with a cute friend turned the ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ premiere in New York City into family night on Thursday (June 7).
Yesterday, when Matt Lauer brought the ‘Today’ show back from commercial by commenting ”We’re hoping the same kind of weather hits us tomorrow when we’ve got Chris Brown out on the plaza,” Chris couldn’t let the anchor’s choice of words slide.
Referring to Breezy’s 2008 domestic assault conviction after he — well, you know the story — the comedian who voices Marty the Zebra in the animatic flick asked, “Did you say you hope the same weather hits you?” before adding with a laugh, ”I hope the weather doesn’t smack us upside the head tomorrow.”
Thankfully, Elmo was in the building to make things wholesome. If Rabid Beaver decides to play Mike Tyson Punchout at some point in the day you understand why.
Karrueche Tran is more comfortable with her relationship with Chris Brown than you probably are.
Yesterday, she shared a moment from her doggy date with Breezy’s former girlfriend Draya Michelle before showing off a spread of items from the ‘Basketball Wives LA’ star’s swimsuit line.
When Chris dropped his “Theraflu” freestyle I assumed that he was talking about Draya in addition to Rihanna. Nothing like spending an afternoon watching dogs go tinkle on pee pads to keep the saying “rather pissed off than pissed on” alive.
Check out flicks from earlier this year of Draya keeping her figure in check by undergoing a body wrap procedure after the jump.
Nobody puts baby’s boogina in a corner. Chris Brown is threatening legal action against ex-B2K zestation Raz B for suggesting that he slurps manchowder by the gallons when no one is watching in his new memoir, This Boy’s Life.
“Lying about somebody in a book is called defamation of character. Keep feeding people bullshit and ima end up owning you and that book! RAZ B! God bless … My lawyers are handling it! Lol ima chill!,” tweeted Brown. He later deleted his stance while he assumingly awaits to take legal action.
In his book, Razberries questions the box Breezy checks when it comes to his sexual orientation and also hints that the singer has a substance abuse problem.
“I’ve never had issues with substances; even when I was at my lowest. I always thank God I never had a serious addiction like the Weezy’s [Lil Wayne] and the Breezy’s [Chris Brown].”
He continued: “What type of man hits a woman? A man that does not honor womanhood or the fragility of it. I also read that most men who beat women have latent homosexual tendencies. So there you go.”
