Miranda Lambert Bashes Chris Brown Again

Uh oh. No good can come out of verbally bashing someone to a major magazine, right? Right?!

Well, Miranda Lambert (Blake Shelton‘s other half) is at it yet again with her hating-on-Chris Brown-tirade, only this time, instead of taking it to Twitter and leaving it at that like she did last year after Brown’s duo Grammy win, she’s shared how she really feels about the ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ singer to Redbook magazine.

“He beat a girl…not cool that we act like that didn’t happen,” she told the mag. “I didn’t feel right about not saying something. The loudmouth that I am, I say what I think.”

Standing by her critique of the star, she continued, saying, “I wanted everyone to know that I don’t agree with the message it’s sending to young women. It’s not okay. At all,” said Lambert. “To be celebrated after doing something like that. I don’t think it’s right, I never will, and I will stand by what I said till the day I die.”

Let’s go back to that tweet incident, shall we? At the 2012 Grammy’s, Brown picked up two awards, and Miss Lambert felt the show was being overly nice to the R&B singer.

“How dang long did they give Nicki Minaj to do whatever that was?” she tweeted the day after the Grammy’s. “Strange. And Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl…”

Joan Rivers better watch her back, Miranda may be coming for her job.

Will Rihanna + Chris Brown Perform Together at the 2013 Grammys?

Talk about returning to the scene of the crime. Rumor has it that Chris Brown and Rihanna will have their coming out party at the 2013 Grammys and that they want to perform together.

Back in 2009, on the eve of that year’s Grammys, Breezy beat the crap out of Rihanna when they were officially a couple. They canceled their appearance and eventually broke up, which is why so many people are anti-ChRihanna, V.2.

The couple has been coy about the status of their relationship, although taking in Lakers games and sharing Instagram photos while in bed pretty much screams “WE ARE BACK TOGETHER.”

“Chris wants to perform with Rihanna at the Grammys to show the whole world they are back together,” a source told RadarOnline. “Chris doesn’t care what the haters say, and wants to give the viewers an over the top performance with Rihanna.”

Breezy, who’s reputation has taken a beating since he got violent with RiRi, wants to use the perf to show he has turned over a new leaf and show why Ri has taken him back after he used her face as a punching bag.If this does indeed go down, it’d be a showstopper.

“He wants the fans to know this is the real deal, and he is a changed man,” the source said. “If Rihanna can forgive him, the rest of the world should move on from what happened four years ago,” the insider said.

The producers have yet to give their blessing on such a performance. The issue is a delicate one, since it involves domestic abuse. But the producers also know that it could be a ratings goldmine. Who wouldn’t tune in to see that?

Stay tuned, ChRihanna watchers. This is bound to get even more interesting.

Chris Brown Dumps Karrueche Tran for Rihanna Again

Another day, another dramatic (or not-so-dramatic) turn in the RihannaChris Brown-Karrueche Tran love triangle. The latest? Apparently Breezy is letting Tran go in favor of the Bajan superstar, with whom he rang in 2013.

“He’s curled up with Ri and he been with her this whole time this month and he’s dedicated to her,” a source told Hollywood Life. “He’s trying to do the right thing with her and want to be right by her too. He’s just trying to be a good man this year and so far he’s doing that.”

Keep in mind, this month is only a week in. This can all change anytime!

“Rihanna wants to spend everyday in January with him in 2013 because she thinks that will cement their relationship,” the decidedly not well-spoken source said. “She be on that whole sentimental stuff all the time … Karrueche was always good people to him and treated his a– like a king 24-7, but he’s on Rihanna hard right now so I guess K.T. realizes that and she’s falling back.”

Still, Tran apparently isn’t too bothered by any of this. “Chris is always going to be somebody she loves and cares about,” a source said. “At the end of the day, they still have a connection and they still tied up in their own way. If he’s in love with the other girl, so be it! Kae isn’t desperate at all. That’s not how she rolls and that’s not [a] good look for her or any woman for that matter.”

Of course, the reason she harbors little ill will may be because Brown sort of made her a kept woman.

“No shade, but he hooked her up with a lot and put her on the map with her fashions and for the most part he came correct to her and was honest and never lied,” the source said. “So for that, he ain’t all that bad.”

Still, is it a good look to constantly have to share a dude with someone else? Let him go!

Rihanna + Chris Brown Hop Out of Bed for a Munchie Run in Los Angeles

Chris Brown Rihanna

Rihanna and Chris Brown haven’t been back together all that long, so it’s still news when they go out for an Icee. The still-pretending-they’re-not-together couple headed out to a convenience store in L.A. on Wednesday in RiRi’s brand-new Porsche.

A series of pics on Rap-Up shows the superstars pulling into a convenience store parking lot and buying some snacks. RiRi exits the store with an Icee and a bag of munchies and stops to take a photo with a fan before hopping into the passenger seat. The singers wear identical sweatshirts from Brown’s Black Pyramid clothing line, with RiRi’s in red and Breezy’s in black. Rihanna wears tight blue jeans while Brown sports camo pants.

Rihanna and Chris have seemingly been inseparable over the past few weeks, from attending a Lakers game on Christmas Day to hanging out in the same bed on New Year’s Eve. Going to a basketball game is one thing, but if these two are running mundane errands together, they might as well just come out and acknowledge their couplehood.

Rihanna’s Porsche 911 Turbo S was an early Christmas gift from her Roc Nation management team. She wrote on Instagram that she received the $160,000 vehicle just before the holidays: “Ain’t nobody phuckin wit my clique!! Thank you to my Roc brothers! I love you guys, y’all are crazy for getting me this bad a– h-.”

Rihanna and Chris Brown Cruise Through Los Angeles (PHOTOS)

Talk about life in the fast lane: Rihanna and Chris Brown took a drive around Los Angeles before stopping at a drive-thru to grab a bite to eat on Wednesday.

During their afternoon outing, Brown flashed a smile as he helmed the wheel, while the “Diamonds” singer enjoyed the view from the passenger’s seat.

2013 has only just begun, and the pair already seem inseparable. Just a day before, the controversial duo caused a stir on Instagram, where they posted not-so-subtle photos implying they celebrated the New Year together.

“Good morning! Still haven’t slept lol #hello2013,” the songstress captioned her snapshot. As for Brown, he went for a more simpler route in his reference, only posting a view from their bed. “Mornings,” he wrote.

Rihanna And Chris Brown Wake Up Together On New Year’s Day (PHOTO)

It’s only a couple of days into 2013, and Rihanna and Chris Brown are already making headlines.

The controversial couple remained out of the spotlight on New Year’s Eve but caught everyone’s attention the next day on Instagram, where they each posted photos of themselves in bed — implying they rang in 2013 together.

“Good morning! Still haven’t slept lol #hello2013,” Rihanna wrote alongside a snapshot of herself, sleepily peeking out of a polka dot comforter.

The now-infamous polka dot comforter was also featured in Brown’s photo, “Mornings,” which featured a glimpse of their room from his bed. We’ll let you do the math.

From posting scandalous pics to possibly heading down the aisle, the R&B singer and her beau have racked up a number of controversies throughout the past year since mending their rocky relationship.

They most recently raised eyebrows over the holidays as they snuggled courtside at the Lakers-Knicks game on Dec. 25.

Did Rihanna + Chris Brown Spend New Year’s Eve Together?

A picture is worth a thousand words, but a black and white spotted comforter? Well, that bedding reveals the truth. It appears that Rihanna and Chris Brown spent New Years Eve together.

No, they didn’t get dirty and share a photo of themselves in bed together. Instead, ChRihanna shared separate (but equal) Instagram images of themselves in bed on New Year’s morning, wrapped in the same aforementioned comforter.

Rihanna shared a photo of herself covered up to her nose, her eyes peering out lovingly at someone, likely Breezy. She posted: “Good morning! Still haven’t slept lol #hello2013.” Ooh, we wonder what trouble these two were getting into.

Breezy posted: “Mornings.”

Yeah, those suck without a wake up cup of caffeine! But we’ll venture a guess that he enjoyed smooch from the woman he loves, who happens to be one of the most popular and desirable pop stars working today.

It didn’t take long for either of their followers to point out the similarity in the covers. We seriously doubt they were just crashing in separate rooms in the same hotel.

Laker game on Christmas. Thug life images. Photos in the same bed. The holidays were certainly a fertile time for RiRi and Breezy.

ChRihanna are going strong and 2013 is just hours old. These two are cray cray about each other, and very possibly cray cray. Can they just admit it already?

Check out the photos — is that photographic proof that they rang in 2013 together?

‘Showbiz Tonight’ and Celebuzz Countdown The Top 5 Buzzmakers of the Year (VIDEO)

As 2012 comes to an end, Showbiz Tonight’s AJ Hammer looks back at the top 5 buzzmakers of the year, exclusively for Celebuzz.

#5– Taylor Swift – The country/pop singer returned to musical chart dominance with her hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” And, her chief songwriting inspiration – relationships – kept her in the tabloids all year, especially her summer flings with Connor Kennedy and One Direction’s Harry Styles.

#4 – Madonna vs Lady Gaga – The feud between the two divas reached a fever pitch this year as Gaga was continually accused of being a Madonna copycat. Madonna called Gaga’s music ‘reductive’ while Gaga not-so-subtly criticized Madonna on stage.

#3 – Nicki Minaj – She made headlines for becoming a judge on American Idol, but it was her feud with fellow Idol judge, Mariah Carey, that had everyone buzzing this year. Nicki claimed Mariah didn’t want another female judge on the show and Mariah alleged that Nicki threatened to shoot her. It’s going to be an interesting season, the show premieres on FOX on Jan. 16.

#2 – Lindsay Lohan – 2012 marked the return of Lindsay Lohan as an actress, at least on the small screen. She landed the role, and later bombed it, as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick, but her biggest feat of the year was being charged with four crimes on two coasts on the same day.

#1 – Rihanna & Chris Brown – The couple reunited three years after Chris put Rihanna in the hospital after a nasty argument. Despite being criticized by everyone around the world, the two flaunted their rekindled romance in 2012.

Tune in to Showbiz Tonight Mon. – Thurs. at 11pm ET/PT on HLN. And be sure to check back every week for AJ Hammer’s countdown of the top 5 buzzmakers right here on Celebuzz.

Rihanna’s Family Wants Her to Marry Chris Brown, Says Close Friend (EXCLUSIVE)

Fans may disapprove of the rekindled romance between Rihanna and Chris Brown, but the Barbadian singer’s own family is hoping she’ll walk down the aisle with her one-time abuser, Celebuzz has learned.

“The family wishes she’d marry him — we’re just waiting for that day to come,” a source close to Rihanna’s clan said. “It’s true love.”

That’s not all. Commenting on Brown, who pleaded guilty to assaulting the “Diamonds” singer in June 2009 after a Grammy night fracas, the insider said, “We love him like a son.”



This isn’t the first time those close to 24-year-old Rihanna have spoken out in support of her romance with Brown: her father gave his blessing to the couple just two months ago.

“I hope one day she will get married,” Ronald Fenty told Life & Style. “Everyone adores Chris. He’s a super guy.”


The pair have had a famously rocky relationship since the L.A. assault, and the roller-coaster ride has only gotten bumpier in recent times. Just last week, Rihanna fanned the flames of breakup rumors when she Instagrammed a photo with a caption about being single; on Dec. 19, she tweeted a photo of an empty bed.

A day later, 23-year-old Brown also took to Twitter, posting an intimate photo of the duo together — but within minutes, the “Don’t Wake Me Up” star deleted the image.

If fans thought the Rihanna/Brown relationship was finally over, they were wrong: On Christmas Day, the two were spotted snuggling up courtside at a Lakers game.

So what’s Rihanna’s attraction to Brown?

The family friend answered that question with a question — and one that some may find a bit ironic: “Do you know when you have a dog and it goes away and comes back?”

Top 5 WTF/LOL/OMG Moments of 2012 (VIDEO)

What a year it’s been.

Like every year, 2012 was filled with its fair share of highs and lows.

Who could forget, for example, when the USA women’s gymnastics team flipped, landed and contorted their bodies on their quest to win Gold at the Olympic Games in London? Or what about that time former Republican candidate Mitt Romney threatened Big Bird’s job during one of the Presidential debates?

Or even that time when Prince Harry was photographed partying naked inside a hotel suite in Las Vegas?

Crazy, right?

Well, if you can believe it, those weren’t even the biggest pop culture moments of the year.

Nope, that title belongs to a very special singer who captivated every club and radio station around the world with his hit single and subsequent music video.

Find out who won the honor in the video, above.

2012 Year in Review: 10 Most Jaw-Dropping Moments (PHOTOS)

We’re pretty jaded, we consumers of celebrity culture. Lady Gaga? Been there, seen that. Honey Boo Boo? Stranger people have become sudden stars than the zaftig 7-year-old beauty pageant contestant and her self-styled redneck clan. Nicki Minaj feuding with her new co-worker Mariah Carey? Color us unsurprised.

It took a lot more than that to make our jaws drop this year. In order for us to star slack-jawed at our screens or text, “WTF?” to our friends, we needed to see stars acting out of character, people going off the rails, or just general good old-fashioned betrayal.

The things that shocked us this year include the events that even shocked the people involved in them. That someone would cheat on international heartthrob Robert Pattinson with their older movie director? That the very classy Kate Middleton would be embroiled in a topless scandal? Or that Angus T. Austin would go religious on us and start trashing the show that made him a multi-millionaire?

Click through the gallery above for our list of the 10 most jaw-dropping moments of 2012.

Are you still stunned? Are there any astonishing moments we should have included but didn’t. Go ahead and tell us; our delicate sensibilities can handle it.
