Last Lap: Is Chris Brown Giving Up His Lavish Lifestyle?

VH1 hasn’t seen the last of Ed Sheeran, Mariah Carey is accused of being sneaky, and Lana Del Rey teases a clip just ahead of the release of her new album.

  • Chris Brown’s Hollywood Hills home — the one he infamously covered in graffiti — is now being sold. Now that Breezy has a new lease on life, he’s been able to drop not only one, but two expensive properties from his balance sheet. In addition to the house, the singer has just finalized the sale of a West Hollywood condo. We figure he has other homes, but is Chris scaling back his expenses to lead a simpler life? [TMZ]
  • Ed Sheeran totally loves VH1! Listen as the singer talks about his upcoming project with us, and what he’s prepared to do with us in the future!
  • Mariah Carey posted a photo of herself to Instagram, with a caption reading that she was chilling with her kids. But some astute fans pointed out that the pic was actually from the late `90s, making us wonder if Mimi was trying to pull one over on her devotees. [The Hollywood Gossip]
  • Lana Del Rey really won’t stop teasing us as she prepares to release her next album. Ultraviolence drops tomorrow, but Lana has already given us a short clip of what looks like the video for “Pretty When You Cry.” [MTV News]
