Though he’s had overwhelming professional success, it seems things are a bit complicated for Lil’ Wayne, and he was spotted leaving a Manhattan criminal court this morning after appearing before the judge.
The “Mrs. Officer” Grammy-winner was dealing with a gun charge, and he’ll have to be back in court on April 20th to begin his trial.
In related legal news, it seems Wayne has been slapped with a $1.3 million lawsuit by Ed Strickland, a concert promoter in Rochester, New York.
Apparrently Lil’ Wayne canceled three gigs at the Blue Cross Area, leaving Strickland high and dry. He told press, “This is a business. I have a commitment to my investors, the public. A lot of money — TV, radio, print — went to make this thing happen.”
His public image has taken a serious hit since he allegedly beat up Rihanna a few weeks back and now Chris Brown is attending anger management classes in an attempt to repair his reputation.
The “Kiss Kiss” singer was reportedly enrolled in the classes because, “he believes it will make him look better to the public,” said an inside source.
A friend of Brown’s told press that both Chris and Rihanna need help with how to handle their emotions. “Rihanna is temperamental, too. They’re both too-hot headed for their own good.”
A source close to the couple also revealed, “It didn’t help that Rihanna grabbed the keys out of his rented Lamborghini and threw them down the street. She knew it would really infuriate Chris, and it worked.”
Reports are out saying that singer Rihanna was hiding a shocking secret when boyfriend Chris Brown brutally beat her. Is Rihanna pregnant? Read more on the new details below.
Just days before the beating ordeal, it’s being reported that Rihanna had seen an ob-gyn at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after telling close friends that she suspected she was pregnant with Chris Brown’s baby.
Rihanna was in sunglasses and dressed in all black, and seemed extremely nervous and upset. “She was extremely fidgety. She seemed totally uncomfortable,” an eyewitness told Star Magazine.
The couple’s relationship had already been rocky, and Rihanna was scared Chris might dump her hearing she was possibly pregnant.
“She was scared he would react badly,” says an insider.
But Rihanna apparently did not get to tell Chris about the doctor visit. Brown beat the hell out of her after she tried to grab his cellphone to read a text message he received.
We will keep you updated as we learn more on the Rihanna and Chris Brown situation. What do you guys think?
A dream wedding wish comes true for a dying 9 year-old girl in Texas. Read more on little Jayla Cooper and see video of her dream wedding below.
Friends and family joined together at Paradise Cove, on the shore of Lake Grapevine in Texas to celebrate the dream wedding, a dying wish for Jayla Cooper.
The 9 year-old bride, Jayla, was said to be very excited about her big day!
The young bride and groom met at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas two years ago and became friends.
“He knows what’s going on,” said Charla Griggs, Jose’s mother. “He understands that she is going to a better place.”
Jose’s parents said Jayla helped their son with his own battle with the illness.
“He’s brighter, happier and more content with all that they go through in the hospital,” said Lawrence Griggs, Jose’s father. “She changed that, brought it all out and opened up a side of him I hadn’t seen.”
Jayla Cooper has been battling leukemia for two years now, and has been told she only has a few weeks left to live.
Paula Deen was at Sunday’s South Beach Wine and Food Fest. And from the video of Paul Deen’s pants falling off, she put on quite a show!
Any of you familiar with the Queen of Southern Cooking, Paul Deen, knows she has an awesome sense of humor. Well, Paula Deen was wearing loose pants and showed the crowd how they kept falling. Then as she was walking across the stage, they slipped straight down to the middle of her thigh before she could pull them back up.

Michael Jackson believes he won’t be around long enough to see his children grow up with his deadly disease. Jackson is reportedly asking his sister Janet Jackson to raise his three children when he’s gone.
Michael seems to think he won’t be around for long and is concerned about his three young children. He seems to feel sister Janet would be the best with his children.
“Please raise my kids, Janet. You’re the only one left I trust!”
“Michael feels the end is near,” a family friend told the Enquirer. “He’s terrified that if he dies, his children will end up with his aging parents or his brothers.”
“He knows Janet will give his kids a mother’s love and see that they grow up away from the showbiz spotlight.”
Michael Jackson, 50, has Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 10 from his ex-wife, Debbie Rowe. But Prince Michael II called “Blanket” was adopted in 2002.
“Michael is in bad shape,” a friend stated. “He has respiratory problems, heart palpitations, is losing weight rapidly and is now worried that he may have contracted the killer flesh-eating disease. He has begged Janet to look after the kids.”
It’s said that his health issues started soon after his last plastic surgery.
“He’s been visiting a Beverly Hills clinic receiving antibiotics through an intravenous drip,” disclosed the pal. “Michael has difficulty walking, often has to use a wheelchair and spends most of his days in bed, at the doctor’s office or in the bathroom.
“His sole companion is his longtime nanny Grace Rwaramba. Michael knows Grace loves the kids, but doesn’t think she can cope with them on her own.
“Debbie, mother of Prince and Paris, has been out of the children’s lives and only sees them rarely. Janet sees them all the time and is more like a mother to them than anyone.”
“Family members have offered to help, but he’s afraid of the children being exploited. The only family member he trusts is Janet.”
This is very sad if Michael Jackson’s health problems are accurate
Tying up a few loose ends before the weekend, Lindsay Lohan was spotted out and about in West Hollywood running some errands yesterday (February 21).
The “I Know Who Killed Me” actress left her girlfriend Samantha Ronson’s place holding a can of Coke as she passed the paparazzi sporting a black and white patterned top along with a white jacket, grey jeans, and black shoes
And it sounds like the success of Lindsay’s 6126 leggings line has inspired her to continue expanding her clothing design portfolio - she’ll be introducing a range of clothing in the next two years.
LiLo recently alluded to the fact that she would be involved in lots of fashion clothing by 2011, perhaps charting a new course for her career
Making the most of the sunny weekend weather, the Jonas Brothers stepped out at a local park in Brentwood for a day of softball fun with friends on Saturday (February 21).
While Joe and Nick happily hopped into the pick-up game, brother Kevin opted to sit this one out - instead tending to Nick’s pooch Elvis and his girlfriend’s new pup, Texas Teacup Daisy.
Meanwhile, the JoBros are looking ahead to this Friday (February 27) - as they have an all-new movie slated to take over theaters all over the States.
“The Jonas Brothers: 3D Concert Experience” sees its much-awaited release, described as “a 3-D concert film of the 2008 Jonas Brothers ‘Burning Up’ concert tour, as well as documentary footage on the lives of the three brothers.”

Solange Knowles has been released from the hospital after collapsing. Solange, Beyonce’s little sister, blames the collapse on too much NyQuil. Read more on Solange below.
Solange Knowles went to the Armani Store Opening in NYC and took NyQuil on her flight and felt odd.
The singer was posting on her twitter page, and wrote about her ordeal saying, “think im certified loosing it on nyquil. going to sleep before i start freestyling on the plane”.
Several hours later Solange wrote, “Never taking nyquil again. I feel so weird.”
Then hours later she posted about how she collapsed on the floor at the baggage claim area saying:
“Woaah….How’d I end up in the hospital?”
“Woke up to 8 random people over me, laid out on the floor in baggage claim!”
“Guess I passed out! Scary. Hooked up to IV now . Apparently I’m super dehydrated.”
“My mom is the best. LOL. She’s like ain’t nothing wrong with this girl, she need some water and rest… Pull up the car! LOL”
“Blood pressure low”
Rihanna was seen publicly for the first time after the assault that involved her boyfriend, Chris Brown. She was out a day after the photo of her beaten and bruised face was out on the internet. Read more about Rihanna and read her statement below.
Sources have reported that Rihanna stayed at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, Calif., with four other people, including her assistant and a bodyguard. Rihanna stayed on the grounds for over a week, after her brutal assault.
Rihanna appeared to be largely recovered from the brutal injuries shown in the horrific photo posted on TMZ.
Rihanna boarded a flight today on her 21st birthday, and media is speculating that she is going to see her family in Barbados.
Rihanna’s rep issued a statement regarding her alleged attack, saying: “At the request of the authorities, Rihanna is not commenting about the incident involving Chris Brown. She wants to assure her fans that she remains strong, is doing well, and deeply appreciates the outpouring of support she has received during this difficult time.”
TMZ has posted the photo above of a beaten, scratched, and bruised woman that could be Rihanna. The contusions and other injuries do fit the description of her injuries so it is believed to be an authentic photo of Rihanna. And Rihanna does have a roman numeral tattoo which you can see the photo of below.
The photo of Rihanna on TMZ shows the swellings on the forehead as well as marks on her cheeks and on her mouth area. TMZ has not said where they got the photo of Rihanna.
Los Angeles Police Department Officer Jason Lee stated that the agency hasn’t released any images of the woman who accused Brown, and will not release evidence photos. And a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney said all evidence related to the case against Brown is still with police. Um hum!
Chris Brown was arrested Feb. 8 and booked on suspicion of making felony criminal threats to a woman that authorities have not publicly identified. That beaten woman of course was singer Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Fenty.
The woman in the photo posted by TMZ has a tattoo of Roman numerals on her left shoulder; Rihanna was photographed by The Associated Press the night of the incident with a tattoo of the same numerals on the same shoulder.
See the photos of Rihanna below as well of Rihanna’s roman numeral tattoo which is identical to the tattoo on the beaten woman’s face in TMZ’s photo. It looks to be real!

Details have slowly emerged regarding Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna last week. Chris Brown had kept quiet until he finally released a statement today. Read what Chris Brown has to say below.
Chris Brown’s spokesperson released an official statement earlier today on behalf of the singer saying:
[“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person. Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writings under my name are frauds.”]
Many of us are wondering what could have triggered the assault on Rihanna. Rumors have said Rihanna gave Chris herpes and yet another rumor was that Chris received a sexually explicit “booty call” text that angered Rihanna and prompted Chris’ flare-up.

LiveScience.com has an interesting story and photos of what is being referred to as the “Borneo Monster”. These photos show a huge snake-type creature. Is Borneo’s legend real? See more photos of the Borneo Monster below.
One photo shows the huge snake creature in the Baleh River, taken by a helicopter by an unknown member of a flood disaster team member.
The locals say it may be the legendary creature they call Nabu, which is a dragon-type shape-shifting sea serpent.
[Furthermore, the reported size of the creature cannot be correct. The original estimate given was that the creature was 100 feet long, though the scale of the photos suggest it must be far larger. [Scientists recently found the fossil of a prehistoric snake said to be 43 feet long; it's been extinct for some 60 million years, though.]
Then there’s the question of whether the photo was even taken at the Baleh river, since most photographs of its waters show it to be a cloudy river, not the clear, dark blue water seen in the aerial photo. If the photo was actually taken by a disaster team member checking on flooded regions, the flooding runoff would increase the suspended particulates in the water (silt, debris, etc.), creating even cloudier water than usual.
Of course, all these troubling questions vanish if the photographs are simply faked.]

according to new reports Chris Brown threatened to kill Rihanna and then proceeded to choke her until she fainted during the alleged assault! Apparently it seems, all this monkey doddle foolishness was apparently started because of a late night text Brown received from another woman that Rihanna read. According to The NY Daily News:
[The couple began fighting in Brown’s rented Lamborghini after leaving Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party late Saturday when Brown received a text message from another woman. Brown pulled over in a swanky Los Angeles neighborhood just before Rihanna grabbed the car keys and threw them out the window. After struggling to find the keys, Brown, 19, then wrapped his hands around his girlfriend’s neck and screamed, “I’m going to kill you.”]
Rihanna has reportedly told police she lost consciousness and woke up to find Brown gone. Police answered a 911 call from a neighbor soon after and escorted the Barbados native to the hospital where she was treated for a split lip, contusions on her forehead and bite marks on her arms.
Brown is reportedly staying with his mother in Virginia and attempting to reach Rihanna, who won’t take his calls.

As more and more radio stations across the U.S. and Canada decide to stop playing his music….
The horrific details continue to come out about exactly what happened between Chris Brown and Rihanna last weekend.
It's been revealed that after pulling over in Hancock Park area of Los Angeles, RiRi snatched Brown's keys from the ignition and tossed them out onto the street. Chris became livid, and he "put his hands around her neck and said 'I'm going to kill you!'"
It gets even worse. "(She) told police that she lost consciousness… her right eye was blackened and badly swollen and she had handprints on her arms." Rihanna was in such bad shape when police arrived, the officers decided not to take any chances and drive her straight to the hospital instead of taking the time to wait for an ambulance.
And where was Chris Brown during all of this? The douche fled from the scene!!!!
Taking care of her craving for comfort food, Lindsay Lohan was spotted picking up some pizza last night (February 10) in Hollywood, California.
The “Mean Girls” gal looked comfy and casual as she stopped into Pizzeria Mozza sporting a white zip-up hoodie, black leggings, and black fringed-out boots
In related news, coming up this Saturday LiLo and her girlfriend Samantha Ronson will be hosting a massive Valentine’s Day soiree.
The tumultuous couple will play host and deejay at Passion Nightclub at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and who knows- maybe they’ll have another major hissy!

Jeremy Lusk, an awesome freestyle motocross rider, died of head injuries Tuesday after a horrible crash while trying to land a backflip in a competition in Costa Rica. Lusk was 24. We have the tragic crash video below.
Jeremy Lusk was taken to Calderon Hospital and was said to suffer severe brain damage and a possible spinal cord injury.
Jeremy Lusk won a gold medal during the 2008 X Games. Lusk also won silver in Best Trick when he landed the first double-grab Hart Attack backflip. In addition he won a bronze helmet in Freestyle at the Moto X World Championships in San Diego.
Jeremy Lusk was nicknamed “Pitbull,” and was part of the Metal Mulisha freestyle motocross team.
Lusk was severely injured on Saturday night when he was unable to complete the full rotation while performing a Hart Attack backflip. Lusk slammed headfirst into the ground.
Jeremy Lusk died at 11:03 p.m. PT at the Calderon Intensive Care Unit in San Jose, where he was treated for major brain trauma and was in an induced coma to allow swelling of his brain to subside.
“He was in a medicine-induced coma as a protective measure, and the medicine was being reduced to see how his organism responded,” he said. “That didn’t mean he was going to wake up. He was in shock and that got worse last night, until he stopped responding and entered into cardiac and respiratory failure.”
Lusk died in the presence of his parents, Chuck and Gina Lusk, his wife Lauren and her parents. Metal Mulisha members Brian Deegan, Ryan Hagy, Cameron Steele and Erik Apple were also by his side.
Our condolences to Jeremy Lusk’s family, friends and fans
This Chris Brown and Rihanna fiasco has my head spinning because as of right now, everything that has been reported is “he say, she say”. Every media outlet is reporting what they’ve heard from sources (but who are these sources???) and Rihanna nor Chris Brown’s team have released statements on what really happened. As a matter of fact, I’m sure the two teams are working together to come up with a story that matches. Unfortunately, for Chris Brown, the longer he stays silent, the more time the media has to paint him as a criminal that’s dangerous to society. I’ve read over 50 sites that have used words like “woman beater”, “temper” and “monster” to describe Chris while using words like “poor girl”, “princess” and “victim” in their descriptions of Rihanna. After my last blog, I have to make it clear that I am not taking sides, I just feel that this story is very one sided and I put most of the blame on Chris’s team at this point for keeping quiet (under legal counsel of course).
Here are the updates for everyone that has emailed me about new developments. This is SUPER LONG because I’m recapping everything that has happened! Remember, this is all hearsay and rumors. NO PHOTOS have been released or official statements from any of their camps. Also I find it odd that Chris Brown’s mugshut has not been released YET.
Latest Updates Below:
TMZ reports that their law enforcement sources claim that Rihanna’s injuries are “horrific”. They report that their are contusions on both sides of her face (that resemble devil horns) and serious swelling and bruising. Her nose was bloody and lip was split. She also received bite marks on one of her arms and one of her fingers. Although they reported earlier that a deadly weapon was used (which they retracted later), They are saying that Chris Brown “alledgedly” punched her with his fist. They say the photos alone are devastating proof of abuse. (So where are the photos? Lisa Raye’s abuse photos were up on Essence.com the next day. I’m kidding…but no not really…seriously!!!)
Now I’m about to show you how the story gets very twisted
According to Janet Carlton, the photos will be released by police any minute now, however her description of Rihanna’s injuries are different. According to her sources, Rihanna had two black eyes and broken teeth. She goes on to say that they were driving in the Hancock Park section of LA in Chris’s rented Lamborghini when the arguing esculated and they pulled over. Rihanna supposedly found numbers in Chris’s phone, grabbed his car keys and tossed them out the window. He then snapped and beat her butt. She goes on to say that this has happened before…
According to Sources who hit up Illseed over at All Hip Hop Rumors
Chris Brown broke up with Rihanna two weeks ago. Their publicity teams forced them to act like they were together for the Grammy festivities even though Chris did not want to. They attended the Clive Davis event together and he was asked to drive her in his car to and from the event until the paparazzi were done taking photos.
Rihanna, in denial that the relationship was over, continued to act “lovey dovey” with Chris although he was completely “over it”. Chris “supposedly” picked up a girl (who just happened to be Keisha Chante ) and the girl “supposedly” was in the car with the two when the argument started. Rihanna supposedly snapped and punched Chris in the face while screaming and he eventually started to hit her back. The girl in the car (alledgely Keisha Chante) was the one who called 911 after seeing blood shed. The source goes on to say that Chris Brown is inVegas and their teams are prepping this Keisha chick so that her story matches Chris and Rihanna’s. If she testifies that Rihanna was injured, Chris could get 12 years but if she testifies that Rihanna made the first punch, the story could be spun in court and Chris could get off on all charges.
(Note: Part of this story could be true but the Keisha Chante parts are so random. … Keisha Chante is the canadian singer who was picked to star in the Aaliyah Biopic). Also, in the story they say Chris is in Vegas but Hip Hollywood reports that he has flown back to the East Coast.
According to a Radar Online source that was at the hospital that night when they wheeled Rihanna in:
“It was impossible to know it was her at first because when they wheeled her past me, she had the hood on her fuchsia-colored sweatshirt tightly drawn round her face and she was wearing big brown sunglasses. They took her into room 14 which was opposite me. I knew the person was famous because of all the attention she was being given by security and medical staff. However I was finally able to make out that the woman they had brought in was Rihanna. She was lying in bed. While the two police officers waited outside, Rihanna was seen by the doctor. Rihanna was clearly very upset by what had happened and I could hear her screaming. Rihanna was trying to get her point across about something, she sounded like she was crying as she tried to get to put her point across. Her staff was also very shaken by what had happened. Later on I saw one of the assistants crying into the shoulder of the security guard.
Rewind back to Friday…the first time Chris and Rihanna were seen together in about a week
The two attended Timberland’s party sponsored by Verizon and Blackberry. I posted photos from the event of Rihanna posing with Kanye West and Chris Brown taking photos with Keri Hilson, Omarion, D Woods and a host of others but there weren’t any of the two together. Ultimate-Rihanna posted these two photos of the two together at that event.
According to a Life & Style Magazine & Eye Witness News source:
“I saw Chris Brown and Rihanna fighting at the Verizon party on Friday night. They were in this room and they were just screaming at each other, totally cussing each other out. “They were right in each other’s face. It was scary. They were surrounded by all these execs and they were all just ignoring it, as if it was something they saw every day. It was so shocking.”
Later that night they were spotted by Hollywood TV , leaving in Chris Brown’s Lambo.
Later that night, they attended Clive Davis’s pre grammy party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. According to a NecoleBitchie.com reader:
I was at the Pre Grammy event. They pulled up and you could tell something went down on the car ride. Homeboy got out and slammed the door on her as she was prepping to exit, walks into the venue fuming, and does the red carpet without her. She comes in and is in a pissy mood too. somebody joked around about Ike and Tina, not knowing how true that would be a few hours later. They’re too young for all this
Fly Style Life has photo's of Rihanna looking upset as they leave the Pre Grammy Party So within the next hour, the altercation took place and Chris eventually left the scene (I’m guessing he took off on foot??? Details are sketchy). The cops gave him 24 hours to turn himself in, which he did the next day. He was released on $50,000 bail.
Later that day, Wrigleys announced they were suspending all ads of Chris Brown as their spokesperson until further notice. (however I’ve seen one or two since then. hmmmm). Rihanna postponed a Malaysian show that was supposed to take place later this week and her label canceled plans for Rihanna’s 21st birthday party which was to take place in New York city on the 20th of this month. They are saying that she will fly back to Barbados to be with family as they want her as far away from Chris as possible.
Chris Brown has canceled all of his NBA All Star appearances/performances that were supposed to take place this weekend
Last night a guy driving a Bentley led police on a slow speed chase in LA and news outlets were alluding to their viewers that it could be Chris, stating it may be a “celebrity or superstar singer who had just been accused of assaulting his girlfriend”. The guy (who eventually shot himself) was not Chris Brown. (it was not DJ Khaled either) Condolences to this poor man’s family and friends…
I didn’t bother to add in the “Rihanna gave Chris Brown herpes” rumor because it sounds made up and I believe it to be false. The main question I have is that, their bodyguards and publicists were more than likely following their vehicle the night after the party. In the photo of Chris Brown pumping gas, there are other people there with them. Where were these people when the fight took place??? Something’s not adding up
The entertainment industry is still in shock and disbelief over the physical altercation between Chris Brown and Rihanna early Sunday morning. And now Rihanna has pulled out of a concert she had scheduled in Malaysia.
The “Take a Bow” babe’s rep reportedly informed the show’s promoters that the event would have to be rescheduled “in light of recent events involving Rihanna.”
According to a report, Rihanna will be traveling back to her homeland of Barbados where she’ll recover from the horrible attack under the care of her friends and family.
She is also said to be fully cooperating with the police as the ongoing investigation continues. As for Brown, he was spotted boarding a private plane out of Los Angeles yesterday.
In what could very well have been the turning point in his successful career, Chris Brown allegedly attacked his girlfriend Rihanna over the weekend. And the ramifications from the incident are numerous.
For one, the “Kiss Kiss” singer will no longer be a part of the “Got Milk” ad campaign- his ads will conclude their run later this week.
A rep from “Got Milk” told press, “The Milk Mustache campaign is taking the allegations against Chris Brown very seriously. We are very proud and protective of the image of the Milk Mustache campaign and the responsible message it sends to teens. Mr. Brown’s ad was launched last fall and is scheduled to end this week.”
In addition, the Wrigley Gum company has also decided to suspend Brown’s campaign with them until this whole ordeal is sorted out. Chris has also pulled out of the upcoming NBA All-Star Weekend.
Enjoying a quiet Monday afternoon, Kim Kardashian was spotted out and about in Beverly Hills, California yesterday (February 9).
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” hottie chatted away on her mobile phone as she grabbed a quick pick-me-up at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, looking sporty in a black warm-up jacket, black stretch Capri shorts, and black sneakers. Kim also headed over to La Scala restaurant for a quick bite to eat.
As for the current drama going on with Chris Brown and Rihanna, the “Disaster Movie” babe wrote in her blog that she was bummed out that they didn’t show up at the Grammys on Sunday.
“I am in shock Rihanna and Chris canceled on this year’s Grammy show! I was SO looking forward to seeing both of them. They were essentially going to be the prom queen and king this year!”
She continued, “Everyone was scrambling around trying to figure out how to fill the time lost due to Rihanna and Chris Brown not showing up.”

As a result of whatever exactly went down on Sunday in the wee morning hours, the Umbrealla singer suffered: two "huge contusions" on both sides of her forehead, a bloody lip and bloody nose.
Definitely NOT okay!!!!
There are now doubts about the bites, but that doesn't make the situation any better!
This keeps getting worse and worse!
Police took pictures at the scene of the crime Sunday morning, and they are said to be "horrific."
There is serious swelling and bruising. Rihanna's lip is split and her nose bloody. And the contusions on her "look like an MMA fighter or something.. it looked like she was growing devil's horns there are indeed bite marks on one of her hers legs and several of her fingers.
Rihanna refused treatment at the scene but did go to the hospital later on Sunday.
Even if she does not cooperate with authorities, the photos alone are said to be "devastating proof of abuse."
Oh, and it was not Rihanna who called 911. Someone in the area heard her screams and called. Thank God for that!

It’s no secret that her personal life has been a bit dicey for some time now, but last night Whitney Houston tried to put all of that behind her as she partook in all of the 2009 Grammy Awards festivities.
Looking fabulous in a strapless blue and white sash-style dress and a funky shag-style hairdo, the “I Will Always Love You” songstress presented the award for Best R&B Album to Jennifer Hudson.
And after her time at the Staples Center, Miss Houston headed over to Beverly Hills to attend Russell Simmons’ Salute to Grammy Nominees afterparty along with her boyfriend Ray J.
The night before, Whitney gave a staggering performance at Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy Bash held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Sources say a shouting match broke out between Faizon and some girls outside the hotel -- and Faizon allegedly socked a random dude who was standing next to them.
His bail has been set at $30,000 -- he faces up to four years in prison.
With her first apology seemingly failing to make things right, Miley Cyrus has once again taken to her blog to express her regret over her much talked about slant-eyed photos.
After being criticized for not sounding sincere in her first attempt to make things right, the Disney singer/actress was pushed by the Organization of Chinese Americans, among others, who called for a fuller apology.
Quickly obliging, Miley wrote, “I want to thank all of my fans for their support not only this week, but always! I really wanted to stress how sorry I am if the photo of me with my friends offended anyone.”
The 16-year-old starlet adds, “I have learned a valuable lesson from this and know that sometime my actions can be unintentionally hurtful. I know everything is a part of GODs ultimate plan, and mistakes happen so that eventually I will become the woman he aspires me to be. Peace and love, Miles”

Los Angeles police are investigating an alleged domestic violence felony battery report involving Chris Brown, according to The Associated Press.
The police department said in a release that the 19-year-old R&B singer and an unidentified woman were in a vehicle in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles early Sunday (February 8) when they began arguing.
Police said Brown and the woman got out of the car and the argument escalated; the woman reportedly identified Brown as her attacker. Officers said Brown was not present at the scene when they arrived. People.com is reporting that the woman suffered visible injuries.
A rep for the singer had not responded to MTV News' requests for comment at press time.
According to Entertainment Weekly's Web site, Rihanna and Brown were involved in a car accident Sunday night; a rep for her would not confirm or deny the accident, saying only that "Rihanna is well. Thank you for the care and support."
LAPD officer April Harding told People that the identity of the female victim will not be released, due to the fact that "any victim who's involved in a domestic violence incident is entitled to confidentiality."
The incident is still under investigation, according to police. MTV News' attempts to reach Brown's spokesperson for comment on the matter were unsuccessful.
It was announced on E! Sunday night that neither Rihanna nor Chris Brown will be performing at the Grammy Awards as scheduled; the Recording Academy has issued a press release confirming that Rihanna will not be appearing at the show.

The 19 year old posted $50,000 (�34,250) bail on Sunday (08Feb09) evening, according to FOXNews.com.
It follows an incident in the early hours of Sunday morning in which Brown and an unidentified woman were involved in a heated row in a vehicle in Los Angeles.
According to a police report, “After stopping his car, Brown and the woman got out and the argument escalated. The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker.”
Police received a 911 call reporting the disturbance. When officers arrived they found the victim, but Brown had already left the scene.
Brown turned himself in to cops at a Los Angeles police station later on Sunday.
According to law enforcement records, Brown was taken into custody at 6:30 p.m. and was officially booked at 7:41 p.m. for making criminal threats.
Brown posted the bail amount and was released at 8:35 p.m., reports People.com.
On Saturday night (07Feb09), Brown and girlfriend Rihanna - who were both scheduled to perform at the 51st Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (08Feb09) - attended music mogul Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy Gala in Beverly Hills.
Both stars cancelled their appearances at the big show.

Doing her best to stay under the paparazzi radar, Miley Cyrus was spotted at LAX International Airport yesterday (February 1).
The “Hannah Montana” hottie sported a black v-neck top with black stretch pants and Sherpa-lined boots as she ducked inside a private room.
In related news, it sounds like Miley has a new ride- she told fans on MileyWorld that she’s currently rolling around town in a new Toyota Prius, a gift from her father Billy Ray.
She revealed, “I’m gonna get Hello Kitty floor mats,” adding that the car is “good for the environment and adorable.”
Speaking of Billy Ray, Miss Cyrus credits him for keeping the shutterbugs at bay. In a recent report she gushed, “He is protective of all of us, because he loves us. He particularly gets upset when paparazzi always try to get my picture. It’s because I’m his little girl. Once I saw him get upset with one guy. He was saying ‘Dude, not cool, not cool.’ The guy was so apologetic, going ‘Sorry Mr Cyrus, sorry.’”
