Rihanna played “Russian Roulette”
I am finally ready to discuss the Rihanna and Chris Brown remixes.
These days Chris Brown seems to be everywhere my little ears are. So I must ask…will someone punch me in the ears? I’ll give you a free shot…or five.
Like all the other independent woman out there, the last place I expected to hear Chris Brown was on a Rihanna track! And the last place I expected to hear Rihanna was on a Chris Brown track!
If you’ve been M.I.A the past few days, let me give you the 411. Chris Brown is featured on the remix for Rihanna’s song “Birthday Cake” and Rihanna is featured on a remix of Brown’s “Turn Up the Music.” Both tracks were released this past Monday.
Precious Rihanna even tweeted about the remix…
Ever since Brown hurt this national treasure, there has always been the “Are they or aren’t they back together” rumor.
Not surprisingly there has been a boatload of outrage about Rihanna and Brown collaborating. Basically, people can’t believe Rihanna is associating with Chris Brown again…and I don’t blame them!
This controversy made me think about a time when Rihanna was so sad and sang about playing “Russian Roulette.” You can hear her pain pouring out in the lyrics. Rihanna’s pain = my pain.
Rihanna…stay strong boo.
Chris Brown…Nope, still haven’t forgotten.
We are a few hours away from Grammy time…let me share my last predictions before showtime.
- Best Pop Vocal Album/Song of the Year/Album of the Year/Record of the Year
Let’s get the obvious awards out of the way. And the winner is:
- Oh and another reason to watch the awards tonight…Adele is performing live. It’s a big deal because she just had surgery on her vocal pipes.
- Best New Artist
- The Band Perry
- Bon Iver
- J. Cole
- Nicki Minaj
While I assume the masses will want Nicki Minaj to receive this honor, I think the Grammys will throw us a curve ball and choose a lesser known artist. I will let you in on a secret…for this category I closed my eyes and randomly picked. And the winner is…Skrillex.
After Googling this person…I’m not so sure about this pick so I am going to just take the punch and move on.
- Best R&B Album
- “F.A.M.E.” – Chris Brown
- “Second Chance” – El DeBarge
- “Love Letter” – R. Kelly
- “Pieces of Me” – Ledisi
- “Kelly” – Kelly Price
ANYONE BUT CHRIS BROWN! You guessed it…still not over it. I’m going to vote for El DeBarge. He looks like he’s got some spunk and he’s been arrested…winner!
The 54th annual Grammy awards will begin at 8 p.m. EST on CBS. Don’t miss out…Kelly Clarkson will be performing.
Poor Blake Lively. Most of the world has probably seen her naked already. I wonder if her rumored new boyfriend Jack Dawson… I mean Leo DiCaprio has taken a peak at the pics. While Lively’s camp is still denying the picture’s authenticity, it seems that we the people do not care whether or not they are real. If the pictures aren’t of Lively, the girl is a spitting image of the “Gossip Girl” star.
This nude scandal has inspired me to reminisce about previous scandals that do not involve clothes. Hold onto your pants!
“1 Night in Paris”
Let’s be real. You can’t talk about naked scandals without talking about Paris Hilton’s starring role in “1 Night in Paris.” Released in 2004, the tape shows 62 minutes of Paris and her ex-boyfriend, Rick Salomon consummating their relationship.
Interviewed by the British version of “GQ,” Paris stated, “I never received a dime from the video. It’s just dirty money and (Salomon) should give it all to some charity for the sexually abused or something. To be honest, I don’t even think about it any more.” Regardless of whether Paris still thinks about the tape or not, it did get noticed by the AVN Awards, which is the Academy Awards of porn. “1 Night in Paris” won Top Renting Release of the Year.
Look at him now
Oh Chris Brown. Not only did you hurt our precious Rihanna, we have also seen what your mama gave you. Personally, I would have rather see T.I. in his birthday suit than Chris Brown, but I’ll take what I can get.
Rumor has it that an ex-girlfriend of his leaked the photo of Brown. While the “Kiss,Kiss” singer was in the process of trying to erase the previous scandal that he got himself into, the naked scandal seemed to have come at the right time.
I do have to say this about what horrible thing he did to Rihanna: We. Will. Never. Forget. Bitch.
Back in 2009, a very interesting picture of Jamie Foxx hit the web. He was wearing nothing but a do-rag. While we all know once a nude pic hits the web, usually the celebrity immediately denies that it’s them in the picture.
What is rare in this case of celebrity nude scandals is that Jamie Foxx readily admitted that it was him in the photo. Foxx admitted that the reason he took the picture was for his make-up artist for a before and after shot of his physical training.
The photo was hacked and broadcasted for all to see. Jamie, I’m blushing…
There you have it folks. As Reese Witherspoon said at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, “if you take naked pictures with your cell phone, hide your face.”
