Chris Brown Supporters Rally, C. B. Released From Jail

No matter whom Chris Brown kicks, flips or punches, his fans are always down to  crump and cat daddy outside of his court hearings. Groups of supporters gathered in front of the D.C. superior court during Chris Tyson’s C. B.’s arraignment yesterday evening, following his arrest for assaulting a man in front of a D.C. hotel Sunday morning. Young thirst traps flooded the courtroom and camped outside with “Free Chris Brown” posters. (If that ain’t ’hood, I don’t know what is.) Not to mention the “He’s too cute to be in D.C. jail” signs. Right, so maybe they should’ve booked him with the rest of the pretty boys up in the hills of Hollywood? Anyway, Boxing Brown was released, his charges reduced from a felony to misdemeanor, but he’s scheduled to return to court on November 20. Guess we can get ready for C. B.’s court concert series part 33.

Queen Latifah Reacts to Barneys Controversy

Necole Bitchie caught up with Queen Latifah on the Black Girls Rock! red carpet over the weekend, and whaddaya know? She got the Queen’s two cents on this week’s talk of the town: the racial shenanigans at Barneys! The royal actress-MC says she agrees with Jay Z’s stance to stay in business with the corporation so far (gag), but hopes there really isn’t any shady mess going on with the Big B, because it’ll kill her poor soul to have to keep giving them what’s in her wallet. (Quote: “I love Barneys and I’d hate to have to boycott them!”) Well, I hope she does join the boycott wagon. They might mess around, forget she’s a star and have her cuffed like a hoodlum for trying to buy a $300 belt.

Fans Outraged After Shelling Out Cash to Fake Lip-Synching R. Kelly

In today’s buffoonery blues, R. Kelly fans in Louisiana get scammed for $150 to see an impersonator lip-synch his music for four minutes. This hilarious sham was promoted via Facebook as “Ced’s [not the entertainer’s] All Black Affair, R. Kelly ‘The Black Panties Promo Party’,” with tickets sold through Ticketmaster. Souped up concert-goers were ready to “bump and grind” but got served with a “sike!” when “R. Jelly” jumped on stage and hit ’em with the “thump and grind!” Enraged fans blasted the scandalous show on FB and are asking for their money back from the party promoter, who claims he was scammed himself but will issue refunds ASAP. I don’t know, but something tells me Cedric the Manipulator already skipped town.
