Chris Brown has followed in the footsteps of Disney star Miley Cyrus by deleting his Twitter account. Brown recently used his Twitter feed to rant against stores he claimsÂ are “blackballing” his Graffiti album.
On his Twitter feed, Chris Brown recently blasted stores for allegedly failing to stock his album. Brown posted: “im tired of this shit. major stores r blackballing my cd. not stockin the shelves and lying to consumers. what the fuck do i gotta do…” Brown also posted that the music industry is being unfair to him over the whole Rihanna domestic abuse incident.
Brown reportedly based his accusations partially on a visit to a Walmart store where he could not find Graffiti on the shelves. He claims employees at the store didn’t know anything about the album. MTV News, however, reported the Walmart had previously sold out of the album and simply had not restocked yet. Billboard.biz reports the album is actually underselling at most stores and many places are overstocked with Chris Brown cds they aren’t moving.
Chris Brown deleted his Twitter account on Monday after posting a final Tweet to fans. “I wanna thank all my fans for their support,” Brown wrote. “I love yall. Goodbye!”
In the second part of her interview with Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America, Rihanna said she still loves and cares for Chris Brown, despite the abuse she received at his hands.
“I don’t hate him at all,” Rihanna said of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. “I actually love and care about him and I’m concerned about him doing well. I want him to do well â€” have a great career, have a great life, and grow up. Just take this as something that you had to go through to grow up and learn.”
Rihanna said her relationship with Chris Brown verged on “obsession” and the “more in love we became, the more dangerous we became for each other – equally as dangerous.”
Speaking about the night she was attacked and beaten by Brown, Rihanna said an argument started when she saw a text message on his phone from another woman. Rihanna said she confronted Brown about the message.
“I caught him in a lie and he wouldn’t tell the truth,” she recalls. “I wouldn’t drop it. I couldn’t take that he kept lying to me and he couldn’t take that I wouldn’t drop it, because obviously his back was up against the wall. The truth is right here in the text message. So it escalated into him being violent towards me and it was ugly.”
“All I kept thinking the whole time is ‘When is it going to stop?” Rihanna said. ‘”When is it going to stop?'”
In an interview with Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America, Rihanna said she was wrong to go back to ex-boyfriend Chris Brown after he abused her. Rihanna also said she was “embarrassing” she fell in love with someone like Brown.
“That’s embarrassing that that’s the type of person that I fell in love with,” Rihanna said on Good Morning America. “So far in love. So unconditional that I went back. It’s humiliating to say this happened.”
Rihanna said going back to Chris Brown after he beat and bit her the night before the Grammy Awards set a bad example for women who are victims of domestic violence. “When I realized that my selfish decision for love could result in some young girl getting killed, I could not be easy with that part… Even if Chris never hit me again, who is to say that their boyfriend won’t? Who’s to say that they won’t kill these girls?”
Even though it was “humiliating” to have to admit she was abused by Chris Brown, Rihanna said she felt she needed to speak out for domestic violence victims. “It’s completely normal to go back. It’s not right. I learned the hard way, but again, this is what I want people to know.”
Speaking out was difficult for Rihanna, however. “There are a lot of women who’ve experienced what I did, but not in the public. So it made it really difficult. I just felt like, ‘Oh my God, here it goes, my little bit of privacy.”
Rihanna is speaking out publicly for the first time about the abuse she suffered at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. In interviews with Good Morning America and Glamour magazine, Rihanna finally opens up about the terrible attack that left her battered in both body and soul.
On February 8, 2009, Rihanna failed to appear for a scheduled performance at the 2009 Grammy Awards. Reports soon surfaced the singer had been the victim of a domestic violence assault by then boyfriend Chris Brown. A leaked photograph from the Los Angeles Police Department revealed Rihanna had been beaten and physically abused. Brown later pleaded guilty to felony assault and received five years probation.
“This happened to me… it can happen to anyone,” Rihanna tells Diane Sawyer of the attack in a Good Morning America interview set to air on Thursday and Friday.
Speaking in the December issue of Glamour, Rihanna says the leak of the photo of her injuries to the media was humiliating. “I felt like people were making it into a fun topic on the internet, and it’s my life… That is not a photo you would show to anybody.”
Rihanna says the experience had a profound effect on her. â€œMy friends and family have been extremely supportive, and everyone has been there for me,â€ she tells Glamour. â€œBut at some point you are there alone. Itâ€™s a lonely place to beâ€”no one can understand.â€
“The positive thing that has come out of my situation is that people can learn from that,” Rihanna continues. “I want to give as much insight as I can to young women, because I feel like I represent a voice that really isnâ€™t heard. Now I can help speak for those women.â€
Girlfriend-beatin’ Chris Brown wasted no time finding a replacement since his troubled relationship with pop chanteuse Rihanna ended last month. He’s gotten back together with another ex-girlfriend. Hope she has a good right hook!
Brownâ€™s new/old lady is University of Mary Washington student Erica Jackson. â€œ Chris and Erica met in Virginia, where heâ€™s from,â€ a source close to the singer tells the NY Daily News. â€œThey dated back in the day and reconnected a few weeks ago when Chris was in town. Theyâ€™ve been spending a lot of time together, but things only really heated up over the last two weeks.â€
Chris’s peeps think the new girl is going to be good for him in the long run. â€œErica has a good head on her shoulders; sheâ€™s solid,â€ says the insider. Being solid is a must if you’re gonna ride around with Chris. Less bruising. The blabber goes on to say â€œSheâ€™s more of a plain Jane â€” cute though. She’s helping to ease Chrisâ€™ pain over Rihanna. He was mad in love with that girl.â€
According to pals, the â€œmadâ€ one in this love trifecta will be Rihanna herself. â€œShe is going to be pissed!â€ says a pal of the pop starlet. â€œRi is going to be so hurt that Chris has moved on so quickly and is parading this new girl around town.â€
What a dumbass! Princess Ri-Ri reportedly has done a 180, and is now assisting prosecutors in her assault case against Brown. She had been reluctant to participate, but all that’s changed now! Nice work, Chris. Hopefully you’ll get what’s coming to ya.
Cradle-robber Tina Davis, singer Chris Brown’s manager, is the woman who triggered the fight that left Rihanna battered and bruised and Chris charged with multiple felonies.
TMZ says the woman who left the THREE PAGE text message on Brown’s cell phone is Tina…turning 40 this month. Freak. She’s rumored to have had a relationship with Chris when he was 16. Natch, both have denied it. Whatever…sending a three page sexy-text to a guy 20 years younger than you is pretty skanky, Tina.
Law enforcement says the text message to Brown talked about hooking up later, which didn’t go down well with Rihanna. She slapped and him and he pulverized her back.
The detective’s affidavit refers to the text message as being “from a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with.” Tina is mum, and hoping she can stay that way. Snarkista has a better idea… why don’t Tina and Chris ride off into the sunset together and get out of Rihanna’s life? It’s a plan.
