The Scoop: What Piece Of Art Did Britney Spears Just Buy?

How is Psy following up his massive “Gangnam Style” success? And why has Chris Brown┬ástarted calling himself “Christopher”? The answers to these questions, plus more, are in today’s The Scoop.

  • She may no longer be judging contestants on X Factor, but Britney Spears still considers herself a good judge of art. She recently put down cash on a painting of a Parisian street scene she bought from a vendor on the street. But who knows? Maybe she’s discovered the next Picasso. [Daily Mail]
  • Korean superstar Psy has just announced that his next single is “happening” as soon as April 13. He also treated his fans to a new youtube clip of him mixing “Gangnam Style” and “The Harlem Shake”. So that’s a thing you can watch. [MTV News]
  • Chris Brown called 911 last night because he felt threatened by the paparazzi. Evidently he referred to himself to 911 not as “Young Breezy”, but as “Christopher”. Very formal indeed. [TMZ]
  • Finally, The Stone Roses and Azealia Banks came to blows during a concert in Australia when one of The Stone Roses called Banks a racial slur and tried to attack her midway through her set. Apparently Banks’s ex tour manager made a pact with the Stone Roses to sabotage any of Banks’s future sets. The musicians have since apologized to each other, so we can all get along now.
