Chris Brown Speaks On Rihanna Incident In Chris Brown: Welcome To My Life Documentary

Chris Brown has released his documentary, Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life, on digital platforms where fans can witness him recounting his domestic incident with Rihanna. In the film, Breezy speaks on their relationship and how they met, saying, "I just think we were like the perfect and bad combination." Brown then reveals that he first met Rih when he was 15-years-old at a New York City radio station concert. Brown was intrigued by her beauty and her accent, and decided to approach her. They formed a friendship, which later developed into a relationship.

However, Chris goes into detail about breaking Rihanna’s trust after confessing to having sex with another woman prior to the relationship after denying that he did. Brown said, "My trust totally was lost with her. She hated me. After that I tried everything. She didn’t care, she just didn’t trust me after that. From there, it just went down hill because it will be fights. It will be verbal fights, physical fights as well, mutual sides."

  • He continued, "This is the first I get to say anything and like I said, I still love Rihanna but I’m just gonna to be honest. We would fight each other. She would hit me and I would hit her. It never was okay."
  • On the actual assault incident, Brown says he let Rihanna look through his phone because he had nothing to hide. There, she discovered a text from the woman he denied sleeping with and got upset. The two fought one another in the car, and Rih pretended to throw his cars keys out the window. Rih was actually sitting on the keys, as Chris was searching through someone’s yard looking for them. Chris says Rih then yelled out the window for help and said that Chris was trying to kill her. He proceeded to take his things out of the car and told her she can drive herself home.
  • Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life was released in select theaters back in June.

Families Of Ariana Grande Manchester Concert Bombing Victims Will Each Receive $324,000

Ariana Grande raised a substantial amount of money from her We Love Manchester Emergency Fund for the families of the 22 victims who were killed in the horrific attack in May. The fund announced that it will be giving each of the families $324,000.

"The payments will ensure the families benefit from the phenomenal outpouring of public support following the attack," a press release from the fund reads. The fund’s chair of trustees, Councillor Sue Murphy, said in the statement, "The city and the world responded with such extreme kindness, generosity and solidarity in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack."

People from around the world donated over $23 million, which included the proceeds from Grande's One Love Manchester benefit concert which took place on June 4th, weeks after the terrorist attack. In addition to the concert – which featured performances by Grande, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Chris Martin, Miley Cyrus, Imogen Heap, and others – Grande donated proceeds from her recordings of "One Last Time" and Judy Garland’s hit "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."

In the fund’s statement, Murphy added that the organization will be carefully determining how to "distribute the rest of the funds." So far, families have received approximately $90,000 and free counseling.

Fergie Poses Nude, Hints At New Music

Fergie has stepped back into the spotlight and this time she’s stripped it down – literally. The artist uploaded a nude photo of herself to social media twice with the captions "tick" and "tock." The time reference may just be an indication that new music is on the way.

The 42-year-old looks stunning and if she’s promoting a new album, the much delayed Double Dutchess, it will be her first full-length in over 10 years. Her last record, her solo debut, Dutchess, was released in 2006.

In May, Fergie announced that she had left Interscope Records to form her own label, Dutchess Music. She’s been teasing brief video clips since then, and also thanking fans for their patience.

Halsey Makes Her Playboy Debut

Halsey poses in a pink swimsuit on the cover of Playboy’s Music Issue for September/October 2017, on newsstands August 29th. Here is what the 22-year-old singer told the mag:

On growing up biracial: "I’m half black. My dad managed a car dealership, wore a suit to work, had a nice watch, was always clean-shaven, handsome, played golf on the weekends. And people would come up to him like, ‘Yo, brotha! What’s up!’ And my dad would be like, ‘Hi.…’… I’m white-passing. I’ve accepted that about myself and have never tried to control anything about black culture that’s not mine. I’m proud to be in a biracial family, I’m proud of who I am, and I’m proud of my hair. One of my big jokes a long time ago was ‘I look white, but I still have white boys in my life asking me why my nipples are brown.’ Every now and then I experience these racial blips. I look like a white girl, but I don’t feel like one. I’m a black woman. So it’s been weird navigating that. When I was growing up I didn’t know if I was supposed to love TLC or Britney."

On handling the negativity constantly hurled at her: "When a society is inclined to get negative, that frequency spreads across everyone. Everyone’s looking for a fight. There is a fight to fight, but some people are picking the wrong one and fighting people who are on their side. And everyone has become a detective."

On revealing her miscarriage to the press: "Every time I read a miscarriage story, it’s about a happily married woman who loses a baby, and that’s f**king terrible and I empathize, but I never read ‘A 20-year-old girl who’s scared and alone and single had a miscarriage.’ And guess what – that happens all around the world every day. I wanted to say something about it because when I was going through it, I was f**king alone. I didn’t know any artists I could have called and said, ‘Hey, I know this happened to you. What should I do? Can I go back on tour? How long did it take for your hormones to realign?’ I had no one to talk to."

On being the first woman to top the Billboard 200 chart in 2017: "A lot of this accolade sh*t is super arbitrary: "Halsey is the first girl with blue hair from New Jersey to.…" It’s exciting but also enraging, because I know a lot of women who put out better albums than me who deserve massive accolades, and I’m the one who had to break the seal."

Halsey released her second studio album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, in June.
