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.
Rihanna and Chris Brown are by no means an official couple yet, but there are apparently a lot of people who would be happy to see it happen. Among these folks are Oprah Winfrey and Rihanna’s own father! Riri’s pop Ronald Fenty recently spoke to In Touch magazine about the man convicted for assaulting his daughter in 2009. And he you know what? Ron thinks he’s a standup guy! “I love Chris, man. He’s got so much charisma. And he’s always had so much respect for me. That’s what I love about him. He’s always shown me respect.”
Ronald, a recovering drug addict who physically abused Rihanna’s mother in the past, has forgiven Brown for what he did, and urges the world to the same. “I think everyone makes mistakes and they shouldn’t be held to them forever. Everyone should be forgiven once. There’s a lot more to Chris than the whole world knows.” That may sound like a surprising move for a parent, but bear in mind that this is also the dude who called Rihanna fat. Read that back to yourself. Rihanna. Named Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive last year. Fat. We’re not confrontational people, but we may have a problem with Mr. Fenty and his opinions. But it’s hard to argue with his last statement on the matter, we guess. “I know they love each other. They always have. She’s happiest when she’s around him, and as long as she’s happy, I am happy and the whole world should be too.”
Woah. We have a feeling things are going to progress rather quickly after this little development. The Rihanna-Chris Brown- Karrueche Tran love triangle is officially done for now, since Chris and Karrueche broke up. Of the split, he revealed, ” I love Karrueche very much but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna. I’d rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives.” “Friendship with Rihanna” wouldn’t be exactly accurate since the two have been paired together for everything from looking cozy at a Jay-Z concert, to hooking up at a club with Chris being spotted leaving her hotel room the next morning. But since Chris is single now, we thought that both his and Rih’s teams would be brainstorming about a debut plan — a way to usher in their couple-dom to the world. Oh right, sorry, they’re not together till someone gives a confirmation. Of course not. Please note our sarcastic voices. Throw the carefully chalked-out plan out the window too, because Chris has taken matters into his own hands. Just a few hours ago, Chris tweeted the link to a video called “The Real Chris Brown,” which has the tag line, “You think you know Chris Brown? You don’t know Chris Brown.” We can’t fully describe it for you, because you need to see it for yourselves! It’s basically a slickly shot piece of Chris talking, drunkenly, about how much his love life is stressing him out.
The video starts with a disembodied voice asking, “Wassup, CB” and his initial response is, “Man, I don’t know man! We had fun in the club! I’m a little drunk, so I’m gonna be honest. Y’all don’t really get the real Chris Brown so, I’d like to just be honest, man, I’m stressed out. That’s just real s—, man … I’m stressed out!” Then it gets interesting, as he goes on to say, “It ain’t about the music. I love my fans. It’s just … you know when you share history with somebody, then can you fall in love with somebody else. It’s kinda difficult, you know what I’m sayin‘? Is there such a thing as loving two people? I don’t know. I don’t know if that’s possible but for me, I just … I feel like that.” Right? We know. Insane!
It’s official: Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran are dunzo. We know, we know; we really thought that they’d last forever! But according to Chris himself, the split occurred over his increasingly close friendship with Rihanna. Relations between the infamous ex’s have started to heat up exponentially in recent days with rumors of sex in club bathrooms, hotel rendezvous, and Jay-Z concert dates, and it seems like Karrueche has been caught in the crossfire. She tweeted a series of sarcastic and bitter tweets yesterday as Brown essentially ditched her and hit the town with Riri, culminating with a simple but telling “Bye baby.”
“I love Karrueche very much but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna,” Brown told Us Weekly. “I’d rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives.” Allegations that Chris and Rihanna were hooking up secretly have been present pretty much since the start of his relationship with Karreuche back in February. The ladies made no effort to hide the fact that they aren’t too fond of one another, even throwing barbs at each other on Twitter.
So really, what is this “thing” between Chris Brown and Rihanna? We can’t say that they’re hooking up until someone officially spills the beans but it feels like the world’s worst kept secret. The two of them are currently in New York where Chris was just spotted leaving The Gansevoort Hotel, where Rihanna is staying, the morning after they were spotted making out a nightclub, where they were, “hugging and kissing, and going to the back of the club alone together.” The latest now is that hip-hop journalist, Elliott Wilson, just a few hours ago, tweeted this heads-up, “Me thinks Rihanna just entered the VIP with Chris Brown. Wow.” Wilson’s site, RapRadar, explained what the deal was. The singers had snuck into the VIP section of Jay’Z’s big concert at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn to watch his show together. Wilson also took the photograph you see above, which said, “Breezy. Rih Rih.” Seriously guys. Just come out with it! Now that the picture is going viral, Brown’s girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, just tweeted the message you see below. And don’t forget the tweet she sent right after the Breezy-Rih kissing news broke out. Her pithy message was, “there’s a difference between a man and a boy.” What do you think she means by that? We have a couple of ideas! Oh and P.S: the word is she’s FINALLY left him.

Rihanna And Chris Brown Reportedly Make Out At New York Nightclub
Walk of shame, anybody? The day after the pair of exes were allegedly spotted making out on a club dance floor, Chris Brown was photographed leaving Rihanna’s New York hotel. Late yesterday afternoon the R&B star was snapped exiting the Gansevoort Park Hotel, the place where Rihanna has been hanging her hat during her week-long stay in NYC. Brown had been seen leaving the Griffin nightclub at 3:50 AM that morning, with Rihanna departing herself immediately after. We would never make assumptions, allegations, or put two and two together; that’s just bad journalism. But they totally hooked up, you guys.
Just kidding! We obviously have no idea what actually went down at the hotel. Maybe Riri left her reading glasses at the club the night before, and Chris was just being a gentleman and dropping them off. Plus the Gansevoort boasts a lovely restaurant, so perhaps Chris was just swinging by because he had a hankering for some swordfish carppacio and he didn’t even see Rihanna. Or maybe they met up for some sweet controversial couple love making. We don’t know.
Another thing we don’t know is Brown’s status with his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. Later that night he swung across town to pick her up at the Trump Soho, but rumor has it that Karrueche is not happy about sharing her man with his old flame. “Having the best day ever,” she tweeted sarcastically, punctuating the statement with an angry emoticon. Could it be a reference to Brown ditching her for a night on the town with Rihanna? Karrueche fans are blowing up her twitter feed, wondering why she’s letting Chris play her like a dang piano. To be honest, we’re kind of wondering ourselves.
