Report: Chris Brown allegedly brawls with Frank Ocean
Associated Press:

Authorities are investigating allegations that Grammy-winning singer Chris Brown assaulted a man in a West Hollywood parking lot.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says deputies responded to a report Sunday night of six men fighting.
The department says the altercation, reportedly over a parking space, “allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim.”
The “victim” wasn’t identified but the celebrity website TMZ, which first reported the incident, says the fight also involved Frank Ocean, a nominee in the upcoming Grammy Awards. He later tweeted that he “got jumped by (Brown) and a couple guys.”

Doesn’t Chris Brown have handlers? Someone telling him that it’s a bad idea to get into fights in parking lots? Sounds like a nihilist.

In which Mediaite publishes an article around an out-of-context tweet by journalist and commentator Toure (in which he’s not defending Chris Brown but criticizing the pop star’s defenders, in the span of numerous other tweets), gets called out by John Legend, and is forced to apologize. Sounds like someone had a busy morning. Lesson: If you’re going to shape a story around a tweet, be sure to at least do your homework when posting it. (Edit: Here’s the cached story, which shows how out of context the tweet is.)

Any of this ringing a bell? Because I’ll never forget that night. I’ll never forget the horrific photos. I’ll never forget reading the terrifying police report. And I’ll never forgive you for forgiving him.
The Daily What • Writing in a post directed at pop star Rihanna, which attempts to lecture her on interacting with Chris Brown on Twitter and other places. The article is problematic for a few reasons, most notably the line above, which ends the piece, and also the way it seemingly attempts to pin blame on the victim for the incident. Rihanna went through a bunch of stuff — in public, mind you — and by personifying the anger, TDW makes a tactical error that has inspired a number of angry responses. A thought: Sometimes it’s best to play something straight down the middle and let the reader decide how they feel about an issue, rather than putting yourself in the middle.

We’re glad to have him back. I think people deserve a second chance, you know. If you’ll note, he has not been on the Grammys for the past few years and it may have taken us a while to kind of get over the fact that we were the victim of what happened.
Ken Ehrlich, Grammys Exec Producer, on Chris Brown performing tonight. Read that quote again. He says they needed a while to kind of get over the fact that they were the victim of what happened. HE SAYS THE GRAMMYS WERE THE VICTIM OF CHRIS BROWN’S ABUSE OF RIHANNA. Read more WTF insights here. Quote’s source here. (via celinenyc)

There’s understandably some anger about Chris Brown performing at the Grammys tonight, years after an infamous domestic violence incident. But … this quote. This quote pains us. It’s such a can’t-believe-he-said-that sort of thing, which personifies corporate issues when the real person who was hurt was a human being. You cannot defend this. You just can’t.

The man having the best day online: Mac Lethal’s brilliant cover of Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now,” in which he raps about (and flips) pancakes, would be a career-maker for most rappers. But he upped the ante, by creating a completely different viral thing — “Texts from Bennett,” in which he posts bizarre and insane (and profane) texts from his friend Bennett. Even if the texts aren’t real, this video totally is. Congratulations, Mr. Lethal.
