Flame wars happen all the time on the internet, but things are getting scarily real in the Twitter feud between one-man controversy machine Chris Brown and writer Jenny Johnson. The social media beef on the Sunday resulted in Brown deleting his account after dishing out a barrage of misogynistic, offensive and frankly pretty gross insults directed toward the comedian. But now some members of Team Breezy are apparently not happy, and they’re making their displeasure known by making death threats against Johnson.
But the Texas-based writer is taking it all in stride. “We are doing a bit of investigating… to see who are writing them and if they should be taken seriously, or just something we need to ignore,” she told Celebuzz. “We are trying to discover if it’s just a bunch of kids goofing off or something else. I’m just letting it go right now.” She admitted to being surprised that the beef with the celeb went as far as it did. “I was surprised to wake up and read about it and find my name on The View and CNN.”
The age old adage goes, “If you can’t stand the heat get out the kitchen.” Apparently the heat was too much for Chris Brown considering he deleted his Twitter account last night after a nasty feud with writer Jenny Johnson. Just another day of celebrity breakdowns on Twitter, starring the normal people who provoke them.
Chris was minding his business and tweeted how old he looks for a young 23-year-old. Jenny, who has a history of agitating the star on Twitter and writing vitriolic posts on her contention for the pop star, used Chris’ tweet as the prime opportunity to tell him, “I know! Being a worthless piece of s— can really age a person.” Most likely Jenny didn’t expect to receive a response from Chris himself, but she did. Read more…
Someone call Tyra and get this dude on Top Model already. Actually, Tyra herself should watch her back, and so should Gisele Bundchen, Kate Moss, Alessandra Ambrosio and Miranda Kerr and basically every single Victoria’s Secret supermodel on the planet. There’s a new cat in town and he’s going to run all of them right off the … runway. Chris Brown was officially signed to Wilhelmina International’s artist’s management division. They are one of the oldest and most well-known modeling agencies around and their roster includes famous faces like Coco Rocha and Gabriel Aubry. But forget them. This is all about Chris, who has said, “Art and style has always played a significant role in my life — it’s evolved with me throughout my career.” Has it really, guys? What are we saying? Someone who made a track called Look At Me Now was destined to become a model! The agency is thrilled, obvs, with the Direction of their Men’s Division saying, Taylor Hendrich, saying , “Chris Brown is a … multifaceted artist with a unique take on style, and we are excited to translate and extend his brand.” Now we’re just going to have to wait for his first major deal. Apparently, he’s looking for both beauty and fashion endorsements, so we’re hoping it’s like … moisturizer or something. Because then we get to giggle and that’s a good thing!

Rihanna celebrated Halloween by dressing up as the Queen of Ganja, but she celebrated the day after Halloween by dressing down as the Queen of Sexy! The singer recently posted (yet another) half undressed pic to her instagram, stripped except for her green veil. Riri’s future wedding (un)dress, we wonder? “The morning after! Hello November,” she captioned the sizzling photo. She had spent that night living it up at her Halloween party, held at West Hollywood’s Greystones Manor. She arrived with friends Shaniece Hairston, and Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, but soon was seen hanging with Chris Brown, who showed up wearing the worst costume of all time. Other guests included Paris Hilton, comedian Kevin Hart, and Lindsay Lohan, but Rihanna obviously stole the show in her costume that paid tribute to her favorite 4:20 pastime. Head down below for a better look at the hotness!
We’re not sure, but we’re willing to bet that there are a lot of people who’ve wanted to snap at Chris Brown over the years. So when his lawyer laid a verbal smack-down on the singer yesterday in court, it felt pretty cathartic. Sadly, it wasn’t about his horrendous Halloween costume, but we take what we can get. Brown was in the midst of yet another probation hearing for his 2009 assault case against Rihanna, this one stemming from the drug use suspicions back in September.
While seeking permission from the judge to go on a world concert tour, Breezy made the mistake of trying to address the court himself. His attorney Mark Geragos didn’t like this idea and shut Chris down immediately. “I don’t dance, you don’t talk,” he told the 23-year-old star. Pwned. Even Judge Patricia Schnegg got a kick out of it, remarking with a laugh that she would enjoy seeing Geragos try to dance. She granted him permission to travel abroad, with the understanding that he check in afterwards to give a progress update. For the time being he remains under supervised probation, but this courtroom visit did not address the concerns raised during his last hearing that he didn’t complete his community service. He is due back in court on January 17th for another hearing.

We are really beginning to wonder about Chris Brown. That is, wonder whether medical researchers are looking into what it is about certain people who seem to be completely missing the filter that says, “You may find this funny/acceptable/cool, but you will actually make yourself look like the worst human being, so don’t do it.” The latest evidence of CB’s missing filter is the above Instagram, which he posted yesterday with the caption: “Ain’t nobody F—ing wit my clique!!!!#ohb.”
Best case scenario, they were simply dressed as “nomads,” crossing the line of political correctness by using an ethnicity as a costume. (And that tattoo really was just supposed to be a Day of the Dead mask, too, right?) Worst, they are dressed as terrorists and making a statement about their attitude toward the rest of the world. Probably something in between. Like Breezy genuinely thought this would be funny. And again, turned out to be horribly, horribly mistaken. Oh, and did we mention he posted this on his way to Rihanna’s Halloween party?
Here are some other celebrities’ whose costumes in recent years didn’t come across quite as they’d intended:
Man, there’s something about that Chris Brown. No matter what he does, the pull he has on his lady loves (past and present) seems pretty undeniable, if not downright freaky. First came his controversial and surprising reunion with former girlfriend Rihanna, and now his latest ex Karrueche Tran is reportedly still pining after him. What gives?!
After dating for nearly a year, it’s fair to say that Karrueche was treated pretty shabbily during the final days of their relationship. While still together with the model, Chris was seen partying it up out on the town with Rihanna and allegedly hooking up with her in a club bathroom. He unceremoniously dumped Karrueche soon after, seemingly so he could hang with Riri guilt free. Most people would be understandably pissed about this, but sources close to Karrueche are telling TMZ that she wants him back. Say wha?!
According to friends, Karrueche not only loves Brown, but also misses the second-hand fame she enjoyed while dating him and doesn’t want to “go back to being basic.” Because of this, she’s apparently willing to forgive Brown’s fling with Riri, as long as she can remain in his life. Her plan might be working, as the two were seen hanging out on Monday. Obviously we’d never pick sides on a Rihanna/Karrueche Tran hotness face-off, because that’s a battle we’d lose no matter what. But although she’s not as world famous as the record busting Riri, it’s hard to do better than the lovely Karrueche. She’s gorgeous! And Rihanna is, well, Rihanna! And these two goddesses are fighting over…Breezy? We quit trying to figure it out.

Here comes a big score for Team Breezy. Rihanna and Chris Brown took their romance public on Saturday night as they attended the Beverly Hills launch party of Brown’s new fan website Qubeey. The two were caught getting cozy in a booth at the Playhouse nightclub, and this time it’s on camera!
According to witnesses, Chris was quite the Prince Charming during his private time with Riri. “He made her feel like a princess just by the little things he was doing,” one guest told Hollywood Life. ” He opened doors, pulled out her chair, you know, being charming Chris. He was being a gentleman and it was cute. They had a few kisses and some drinks…” Although they seemed very affectionate towards each other, Rihanna didn’t want their controversial reunion to steal headlines and tried to downplay her presence. “She loves him and anything she can do to support him she will. She wants to be by his side and show up for him and last night she did.”
The last time we paid a visit to Chris Brown’s neck, we were up in arms about how his latest tattoo seemed to depict the battered face of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. So now that Brown is showing off his latest neck ink showing the face of lion, you’d think it would be a lot less controversial. And you’d be right…unless you assume that all these tats are part of a larger narrative. Like a full body comic strip! Does Brown want Riri to get eaten by a lion? Is that what you’re saying, Chris!? OK, we’re not even going to speculate on the meaning of the animal symbol. Who knows, maybe Breezy is just a huge Simba fan. The singer posted pics to his twitter showing off his latest ink. Situated in the center of his neck, the artwork covers his throat and jugular artery. Damn, he must have really trusted that tattoo artist!
The existence of Chris’s new tattoo is the most firm news we have about the dude these days. Lately rumors have been swirling about his rekindled flame with Rihanna following his breakup with girlfriend Karrueche Tran. There have been rumbles that the two will make their romance public after the release of Rihanna’s new album Unapologetic on November 19th. Even more bizarre, MediaTakeOut is alleging that Riri is already pregnant with Chris’s baby! They offer firm and compelling evidence like…she walks like a pregnant woman. Umm, ok. That makes our “Chris Brown Full Body Comic Book” theory sound less crazy.
Vulture released it’s 25 Most Devoted Fan Bases list today, and you know we immediately clicked through to make sure they had Twihards on there. Of course they did, as well as Mad Men, Harry Potter and a host of other pop culture entities that turn fans into drooling, trembling puddles of love. We couldn’t help but notice that there were some obvious exclusions however, so we went ahead and hyped the fan bases who we think are more than rabid enough to make the list.
