That’s probably three people you didn’t expect to see in the same sentence? At first glance, you don’t think they have much in common and you’d be correct. Henry Cavill and Adele are both from the UK, while Chris Brown is American. With that mind though, both Adele and Brown are musicians. The “Rolling In The Deep” singer has beaten Rihanna for Grammys and Chris has beaten… You can fill in the blanks.
No matter who you are, regardless of star status, everyone has their fair share of fans and haters. Celebrities just have more than most. Star magazine compiled a list of twenty celebrities who have more people loathing them, than adoring them. Check out which controversial singers, self-promoting reality TV stars and pretentious actors made the list.
Naturally, Chris Brown made the cut. Ever since assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009, he’s been on many people’s hit list. His seemingly lack of remorse and douchey attitude hasn’t helped redeem his image. Surprisingly, the R&B singer lands at No. 20. Believe it or not, there are 19 other personalities more hated than him.
Kim Kardashian, whom I loathe, and mom-ager Kris Jenner only placed at 11th and 10th respectively. Anne Hathaway with her perceived faux humility and humbleness during the Oscar awards season earned her a No. 9 slot. Not even cheating Kristen Stewart with her surly and less-than-thrilled expressions snagged the top spot. She came up short in the runner-up slot. Find out who the “Most Hated Celebrity In Hollywood” is below and the rest of the Top 20.
This morning, Chris Brown stopped by Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show for an interview about his music and of course all of the things that have happened in his personal life over the past few years.
They first talk about his music and how he has a new album coming out called X, the roman numeral for ten which is how many years he’s now been in the business (he’s only 24 years old right now). X is also the 24th letter in the alphabet and he also has an X tattoo so it all has meaning to him. Brown will be releasing a new single on April 1 called “Fine China” and also worked with Jennifer Lopez on some music (I think both for his album as well as for hers).
The meaty part of the interview is how he handles the questions about what happened with Rihanna and the downward spiral after that. He was also asked how he responds to fans that say, “I like his music but I can’t like him anymore.” He was also asked “What’s the greatest lesson you’ve learned going through that hard time?”
I have to say that this is the best interview he has ever done and really seems to get how people perceive him and really accepts responsibility for everything he did, how he acted and what was at stake. He doesn’t make any excuses for what he did and really seems to have changed. Listen to the interview below and share your thoughts in the comments.
Rihanna & Chris Brown are back together, but the infamous and unfortunate “incident” that occurred before the Grammy’s a few years back hasn’t gone away.
In next week’s episode of Law & Order: SVU, without saying it exactly in so many words, they are portraying a story inspired by what happened between Rihanna and Chris Brown – complete with the photographed bruised face. The narrator says, “A familiar story of two celebrities intertwined by abused.”
Instead of Chris, the character’s name is Caleb and the members of the SVU team have a hard time getting through to the abused girlfriend because they say Caleb has a hold on her. Of course it’s Law & Order so expect a twist at the end of the episode, just as the preview suggests. Check out the preview below.
In the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, Rihanna has opened up about getting back together with her ex, Chris Brown, and what it means for her public image. I know that so many Homorazzi readers that are (or were) Rihanna fans certainly experienced a backlash for some of her choices and especially choosing to be with Brown again.
“I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” she tells contributing editor Josh Eells in the magazine. “I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”
This public reconciliation between the former couple is happening less than four years since Brown assaulted Rihanna the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards. He had pleaded guilty to assault and performed community service, and still remains on probation. I’m not sure how this alleged assault on Frank Ocean from a few days will affect that situation.
This week, a new episode of Homorazzi aired on OUTtv (Episode 9 to be exact) and in case you missed it, we’ve got the full episode for you to check out below. Since Nic (one of our usual panelists) was away vacationing in Hawaii (stay tuned for coverage on that), Blue from OUTtv join in as a special guest!
As usual, the panel started off by tackling some of the latest Gossip and the most heated discussion took place on the topic of Rihanna & Chris Brown seemingly back in a relationship. The conversation then transitioned to Britney Spears & will.i.am‘s new “Scream & Shout” music video as well as comments on how she’s been doing on The X-Factor as a judge. Also discussed was Tegan & Sara‘s new “Closer” music video and we’d like to clarify that the Canadian indie rock duo are indeed both lesbians and twin sisters (despite some of the confusion discussed in the episode below – LOL).
In closing, they talk about the recent viral YouTube videos that started with “Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends,” and a new gay British series worth checking out. Check out the episode below!
For the most part, I’ve tried to stay clear of the whole Chris Brown topic here on the site. While I haven’t condemned Rihanna for continuing to have a relationship with Brown like Nic and Tommy, I haven’t really promoted his music like Patrick and Tyrell. Between you and me, Rihanna can do whatever she wants. It’s her life and you only learn by making mistakes. Speaking of which, we’ve all done stupid things we’re not proud of when we were young. I know I’m guilty. Everyone deserves a shot at redemption. That said, I would hope people make a concerted effort to change their ways and learn from the past.
Based on a recent Twitter feud, I can honestly say wholeheartedly, it looks like Chris Brown will NEVER change. How stupid do you have to be to engage in a heated argument with a female comedienne and spew out degrading comments on a public forum for the whole world to see. And it’s not just calling her a ‘bitch’ or ‘ho’ but something so graphic as defecating on her eyeball as she performs fellatio. Truly disgusting. He clearly has no respect for women.
Given his history with violence against women, this is inexcusable. It’s one thing to verbally blurt it out in the heat of an argument. But one would hope that during the time it takes to type out responses on his smartphone, he would’ve had a moment of clarity and realized the idiotic thing he was doing. Clearly his rage supersedes rational thought. If you have the stomach for it, check out the heated exchange with comedienne Jenny Johnson below which began with Brown complaining how old he looks.
It’s a busy week for Rihanna right now, currently on her 777 tour with tons of press along with her, including our good friend and Homorazzi cast member, Jonny Staub who is there on behalf of The Beat. Prior to departing, she was on Ellen where DeGeneres was talking to her lady parts.
Today, one of her singles from her Unapologetic album has leaked and it’s the duet with Chris Brown called, “Nobody’s Business“. There continues to be a lot of backlash and a lot of criticism for their continued friendship (or maybe even friends with benefits) in addition to the fact they have collaborated once again. Regardless, Rihanna is doing it anyway and essentially feels that it’s “Nobody’s Business,” as the track implies.
I hate to say it, but the song is good and has a bit of a Michael Jackson feel to it. Of course the song didn’t (or doesn’t) have to include Brown to be good, but clearly Rihanna is embracing the controversy and sending out a message. Feel free to listen to it (or not listen to it) below.
