For the first time since returning from his post-assault exile, Chris Brown is shutting up. The Graffiti singer closed his Twitter account yesterday after spending the weekend accusing stores of “blackballing” his new album in a series of expletive-filled posts. “I WANNA THANK MY FANS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT,” said Brown in his final tweet. “I LOVE YALL. GOODBYE!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Walmart denied Brown’s accusations of a boycott in a press release. “All Walmart stores nationwide have carried the CD since its release, including the Wallingford, CT store mentioned in the post. This store actually sold through its initial shipment over the weekend.” We’ll learn just how well Graffiti did in its first week tomorrow, but it’s predicted to come in at no. 3 with around 100k copies sold (a little over half of what Rihanna‘s Rated R sold in its first week, but not bad, considering). Will Chris let the music do the talking from now on?
Rumors of a split with Alex Rodriguez didn’t keep Kate Hudson from going out in public yesterday. The Nine star rushed in and out of her hotel—in an impressive variety of ensembles—to attend a screening of the Critics’ Choice Movie Award-nominated film, appear on It’s On With Alexa Chung and go to dinner with mom Goldie Hawn and common-law stepdad Kurt Russell. According to the New York Daily News, A-Rod has been keeping busy too…with another woman in Miami.
“She and Alex were introduced at [a dinner for Armani Saturday], but it looked like they got pretty friendly pretty fast,” says their source. “They definitely left the dinner separately, but showed up at [the nightclub] LIV together a few hours later.” As Madonna knows all too well, A-Rod is not one to sit around and mope if things are going less than swimmingly in a relationship. Will she return to the Yankee bleachers or were they just sex-crazed ships passing in the night?

Uh oh, Rihanna! Your fly’s unzipped! The “Russian Roulette” singer went down the Jennifer Aniston road for her GQ cover, adding some short shorts but losing the tie. Racy photos of Rihanna unsurprisingly reside inside the mag as well, one featuring the singer in a knit halter top that’s a bit too short for outside wear.
“[Island Def Jam chairman] L.A. Reid came into the shoot,” Rihanna told her interviewer, “and he was like, ‘Rihanna, put some f*cking clothes on!’” When the guy pimping your album says you’re too nude…you’re definitely doing something right.
Warning: Quentin Tarantino‘s WWII movie is more about talking heads than broken Nazi craniums, although there’s some of that, too. The heads are very fine and the talk isn’t just uber-cool; it’s deep, too. Brad Pitt is the Allied scalp-hunter up against a shifty SS nemesis (the Critics’ Choice Movies Awards-nominated Christoph Waltz). Their duel comes to a head at a movie theatre set to host an explosive premiere for Der Fuhrer. Tarantino’s smart take on national and racial identity suggests his brand of pulp is ripening well.
Extras: The two-disc set comes with extended and alternate scenes, a featurette on the Eli Roth-directed film within the film, and a roundtable chat with Tarantino and Pitt.

Ohhhh soccer, your low scoreyness never ceases to amaze me.
I’d make a standard joke about soccer being too low-scoring and lacking excitement and etc etc, but I’m not sure I need to — here’s a clip of a goalie jumping off the field and peeing behind a billboard in the middle of a game:
World Cup? More like, Toilet Bowl!!!!!*
*(Not actually the World Cup. Also this means nothing.)
Awesome news, people who don’t know how to type a celebrity’s name followed by “topless” into Google: Tara Reid is on the cover of this month’s issue of Playboy!
“Massive Double Issue”… hehehe, I get it! [It is boobs!]
If you’re like me and have a fetish to see naked celebrity photos of people we’ve already seen naked but are now slightly older, then I’m sure you’re also eagerly looking forward to buying this issue. And by “buying,” I mean, finding the pictures online in three seconds, closing the window, and proceeding with our lives.
Snooki - aka Nicole Polizzi – of MTV’s latest hit “Jersey Shore,” has started a war of words with the network’s other glossy reality docudrama. “We are better than The Hills,” she told Us Magazine at Spike TV’s Video Game Awards this weekend. “It is all real.”
Added her co-star J-Woww, she of the mysterious black and blond trash heap hair, “We are not fake; we don’t try to present ourselves like we are fake. We don’t try to put ourselves in front of the cameras with the hair and the makeup. We tell everyone how we feel. We don’t say anything behind their backs.”
We gotta agree with the Jersey girls on this one – the only thing fake about the Shore kids is their hair. Er, and their tans. Okay, and probably their relationships. But who cares – east coast represent![Photo: GettyImages]
Check out pics below of Mike, Pauly, J-Woww and Snooki at the Video Game Awards this weekend.
Something’s amiss in the house of Love: Courtney Love has lost legal control of daughter Frances Bean Cobain, her only child with late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. According to documents released by TMZ, the 17-year-old is now in the custody of Kurt’s mother Wendy and sister Kim, though the documents containing the details of Love’s removal are sealed.
The Hole singer, who previously lost guardianship of her daughter in 2003 (regained in 2005), has continued to court trouble in recent months, allegedly trashing a hotel room and racking up a six-figure credit card bill—though that hasn’t kept her from hitting the red carpet at four NY movie premieres in the last month or posing in see-through clothes for next month’s issue of Dazed & Confused. Love has yet to comment on the legal filing.
