According to reports from TMZ Chris Brown shattered a window and destroyed his dressing room into a fit of rage at “Good Morning America” Tuesday.  He was also said to have ripped his shirt off after anchor Robin Roberts questioned the singer about his assault on Rihanna.

Brown was interviewed by Roberts live to promote his new album “F.A.M.E.” and was caught off guard when he found himself discussing what happened on the night of the 2009 Grammy’s with ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

When Roberts asked about the loosening of a restraining order Rihanna has against Brown, he responded uncomfortably saying, ” It is not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation I am past that in my life and today is the album day so that is what I am focused on.”

Brown is currently on probation in the felony assault case involving Rihanna.

Rihanna smoulders in barely-there outfit

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

Rihanna may have looked as it she was about to tone down her increasingly provocative antics but this new look is testament that was not her intention.

The singer was ordered to tone down her Brit Awards performance of her song S&M last week but true to form, the 22-year-old is back to her eyebrow-raising style in the just-released video for Kanye West’s new single All Of The Lights.

She comes on strong when writhes and pouts for the camera in the cameo appearance wearing a black top that barely covers her breasts.

Buju Banton found guilty of cocaine and gun charges

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

After 11 hours deliberation a federal jury returned their verdict on the fate of Grammy winner reggae singer Banton.  He was found guilty of three of the four charges he faced.

The Jamaican reggae singer, won his Grammy just last week for best reggae album for “Before the Dawn.”

He was found guilty on Tuesday of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute cocaine, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking offense and using the wires to facilitate a drug trafficking offense. He was acquitted of attempted possession with the intent to distribute cocaine.

Wildly popular in his native Jamaica, his trial was based on accusations that he conspired with two other men in setting up a drug deal in December of 2009.  The courtroom was packed with supporters that included other well known reggae artists.

Prosecutors argued that Banton portrayed himself as a broker of drug deals in several conversations with a confidential informant.  Defense attorneys countered that he was simply a “big talker” trying to impress.

This was Banton’s second trial. A jury deadlocked in his first trial last year.

Kylie Minogue kicks off her Aphrodite: Les Folies world tour

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Kylie Minogue has been churning out hits for 20 years and as she kicked off her Aphrodite: Les Folies world tour in Denmark tonight she proved that she still had what it takes.

Greek mythology was her theme and she performed her newest singles and her classic hits from across the years to a sell-out crowd.

Gold and white dominated the stage, and Kylie wore several outfits inspired by Greek mythology including a winged messenger with feathers as ears.

The dramatic scene was enhanced by some scantily-clad hunky males who lifted the diminutive star in the air.

Writing on her Twitter after her first show, she gushed: ‘It was fantastic amaZing incredible I am overwhelmed.’

Aphrodite: Les Folies will take in 36 concerts across Europe – including 14 overall in the UK and a five-night stint at London’s O2 Arena before moving on to Asia.  After that are 17 gigs in North America, ending at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas in May.

The Australian leg of the tour dates should be announced any day now.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana announced last year they would be creating Kylie’s wardrobe for the tour.

They said: “Kylie has always been our Piccola Principessa (Little Princess), not just because of our work together but more so because of our friendship!  Working with Kylie has always been very spontaneous and easy.
