Chris Brown and Tamar Braxton Trade Scathing Disses on Instagram

There Chris Brown goes again, being Chris Brown. The singer clapped at Adrienne Bailon and Tamar Braxton last night after the two hosts of Fox’s The Real mentioned his public infidelity to Karrueche Tran in a conversation about relationships. “I don’t think he’s a bad guy, I just think he’s young,” Tamar said. Adrienne added: “Y’all don’t think that maybe some of [Karrueche’s] friends also reap the benefits of her dating Chris Brown? They wanna be a part of that circle.”

In blackout C.B. fashion, the 25-year-old drama magnet posted an Instagram image of Bailon, with a lengthy, vitriol-filled caption filled with B-bombs and barbs like “Last time [you were] important n*ggas was riding spinners.” As for Tamar, Chris called her “the ugly sister.” Sigh. Oh, Christopher.

He’s since deleted the post, but not before Tamar defended herself with an IG rant of her own: “You are only a few years older than my son and I will not tolerate your disrespect when no one was coming for you!,” she wrote, adding that he was experiencing a “queenish mood.” So that happened. Let’s just hope Adrienne follows Jay Z’s always-relevant advice—don’t argue with fools—and this silliness gets deaded here.

Beyoncé Re-Release Box Set Confirmed

There’s good news and there’s not-so-good news for the Bey Hive. First, the good: Beyoncé’s four-disc set dropping this month has been confirmed! It’s the “Platinum Edition” of the 33-year-old singer’s self-titled album, which will feature last year’s original 14-song album, plus a More CD with two spanking-new tracks (“7/11” and “Ring Off”) and four remixes (the Nicki Minaj-assisted “***Flawless (Remix),” Kanye West’s version of “Drunk in Love,” “Standing on the Sun” with Mr. Vegas, and “Blow” featuring Pharrell Williams).

In addition to a DVD hosting last year’s 17 videos, there’s a Live disc with footage from the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. So what’s the not-so-good news, you say? That companion disc with a full album of new music, including new records with Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Justin Timberlake, is nowhere in sight. Oh, but there’s a 2015 Beyoncé mini calendar! Beyoncé Platinum Edition Box Set will be globally released on November 24.
