Chris Brown to Celebrate Abuse Anniversary by Performing at the Grammys

They say any publicity is good publicity, but that didn't exactly work out for prominent girlfriend beater Chris Brown. His public image never quite recovered from the just fallout that came from violently assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna at a pre-Grammy party three years ago, but some idiot – or Chris Brown-hating genius – decided it'd be a solid idea to for him to celebrate that fateful evening by performing at, you guessed it, the Grammys. Because we all need a reminder of how horrible that night was. Though it hasn't been publicly announced, a source told media folk that it is indeed on the cards. This deserves more FAIL-related hash tags than I have the energy to type at the present time. [Daily Mail]

Color me slow but I had no idea Viola Davis was such a wig aficionado, because people are freaking the fuck out about how good she looks sans weave on the cover of Los Angeles Times Magazine — I always thought it was her real hair. Well, they're not wrong, girl be looking five million shades of awesome. Though it's taken her daughter a little getting used to. "She had to get used to me because black girls, sometimes we wear wigs and weaves," she said in December. "The first time I took my wig off with her, she was like, ‘Nooo!' She literally did that."

Snarking sources say that Christina Aguilera's desire to look her best on camera is holding up production on The Voice and ruining everything for everyone. "Christina holds up pro­duction with her constant demands, saying, ‘Don't make me look fat' or ‘Don't show my butt,'" said the empathetic insider. "She's insisted the cameramen only shoot her at flattering angles, forcing a few segments to be reshot. She also demands that the stylists bring her the latest slimming fashions, and she's always ordering the makeup artists to make her face look thinner." Meh, if I was on national TV I'd spend my life in the makeup chair-cum-Spanx department. [The Superficial]

Even those who love Kelly Osbourne can't help but wish she'd think before she speaks sometimes. The latest instalment involves her hair color requirements for those slightly older than she – saying she can't stand women over 30 getting bright hues in their hair. "I'm 27, I've got three years left, the way I look at it, to have fun with because once you're 30, you look like a right idiot walking around with like rainbow, bright color hair and all different things like that," she said. Katy Perry, also 27, you've been warned — just a few sweet years left. [US]

The more of a megalomaniac Kanye West seems to be, the more likeable he becomes. I think this is due to the fact it increases the likelihood it's all just an act and he's going to one day turn around and go, "Gotcha!" His recent tour rider is a great example. Beyond him requesting that his own Versace towels be shipped to Australia and then cut down into delicate stage-size wipes, he hit the nail on the head when he demanded that even his drivers were banned from wearing suits made from man-made fibres lest they offend his fashion sensibilities. He's just being Kanye! [The Sun]
