Last Lap: Who’s Comparing Chris Brown To Jesus?

Twitter users direct disturbing messages to Lorde, we find out that we’ll have to wait longer for Beyonce’s album, and Britney Spears releases the video for her song, “Perfume.”

  • Many people may not feel that Chris Brown is a saint, but R. Kelly is coming to the young R&B star’s defense, saying that he’s held strong in the face of persecution. Breezy apparently has so much inner strength that Kells thinks he could be on par with Martin Luther King, Jr., Muhammad Ali, and even Jesus Christ. [Perez Hilton]
  • Lorde and her reported boyfriend, who’s of Asian descent, faced a social media backlash from One Direction fans. The alt-pop singer was alleged to have called out the 1D boys as “ugly,” and the boy band’s fans unleashed a racist onslaught of tweets. [Us Magazine]
  • Now that 2013 is nearly over, it’s obvious Beyonce isn’t releasing a new album this year. And it doesn’t appear a specific date has been confirmed for next year, but we should expect her LP “at some point” in 2014. [Vibe]
  • How does Britney Spears try to claim a lover with a wandering eye? The pop star leaves her man with her lingering scent in the video for “Perfume.” [MTV News]
