Chris Brown is Out of Jail
CHRIS BROWN was sprung from the L.A. County Jail yesterday morning at 12:01 A.M. Brown had been in custody since mid-March, when he allegedly violated his probation by getting into a scuffle in Washington, D.C.
On May 9th, a judge sentenced Brown to a year in jail, but he got credit for 234 days already served behind bars and in court-ordered rehab. That left him with 131 days, so obviously, this is a pretty early release. There's no word why, but it's not uncommon.
After he got sprung, Brown Tweeted, quote, "Humbled and Blessed . . . Back to the Music and the Fans . . . Thank you GOD."
Meanwhile, Brown's probation was extended until January of 2015. He has to submit to drug testing at least three times a week and get psychiatric counseling and outpatient therapy twice a week.
Basically, Chris is STILL on probation from when he beat up RIHANNA in 2009, because he keeps violating it and getting it extended. If he keeps his nose clean until January of 2015, he will have spent SIX YEARS on probation.
Did Kanye West Give Kim Kardashian a Naked Portrait of Herself as a Wedding Gift?
I'm not sure how this is a gift for KIM KARDASHIAN exactly, but as a wedding present, KANYE WEST got her a nude painting of herself.
In the picture, Kim is wearing only a G-string and Louboutin heels. It's from behind, so you don't see any naughty bits, but it's still not exactly family-friendly.
Kanye reportedly commissioned a "street artist" who goes by the name of "Bambi" to paint something, quote, "regal but typically Kim." The painting is titled, "Perfect [B-word]." Yep, regal and classy.
Kanye plans to hang it in their bedroom.
The "Journalist" Who Accosted Brad Pitt on the Red Carpet Was Trying to "Bury His Face in Brad's Crotch"
BRAD PITT says the Ukrainian "journalist" who accosted him on the red carpet last week did not intentionally strike him . . . but he says HE hit the guy because, quote, "The nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch."
Brad says, quote, "Out the corner of my eye I saw someone stage-diving over the barrier at me. I took a step back, [and] this guy had latched onto my lapels.
"So I cracked him twice in the back of the head . . . not too hard . . . but enough to get his attention, because he did let go. I think he was then just grabbing for a hand hold because the guys were on him, and he reached up and caught my glasses."
So, maybe he was trying to HUG Brad's crotch, just like he did to LEONARDO DICAPRIO earlier this year. He also tried to kiss WILL SMITH back in 2012.
Brad goes on, quote, "I don't mind an exhibitionist, but he's going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd.
"And . . . if he tries to look up a woman's dress again, he's going to get stomped." He's talking about how this same guy put his head under AMERICA FERRERA'S dress at the Cannes film festival a couple weeks ago.
The Beastie Boys Turned Down a Lot of Money to Keep Arnold Schwarzenegger from Using "Sabotage" in His Latest Movie
Earlier this year, ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER starred in a movie called "Sabotage" . . . and at one point, THE BEASTIE BOYS were offered "a lot of money" to let the movie use their song of the same name.
But the Beastie Boys turned it down . . . for the same reason they didn't want the toy company GoldieBlox to use their song "Girls" last year: They don't let their music get used in advertisements.
MIKE D says, quote, "It felt like too much of an endorsement . . . [and] we weren't fans of Mr. Schwarzenegger's recent . . . work." (And apparently, a lot of people agree. The movie BOMBED at the box office.)
Mike admits that they COULD use the money, because they haven't been able to tour or release new music since the death of ADAM "MCA" YAUCH in 2012.
But they also want to adhere to MCA's will, which requested that his music and "artistic property" NOT be used for advertising purposes after his death.
Keith Urban Ignores the Tabloid Lies About His Marriage to Nicole Kidman
"Rolling Stone" asked KEITH URBAN how he deals with the tabloids always fabricating crap about his marriage to NICOLE KIDMAN. He deals with it by ignoring it.
He says, quote, "The people who really know us are most aghast by the whole thing and going, 'How do you not want to defend that?' I'm like, 'It's pointless.' Our life will be our way of defending it."
He got quite mushy when he started talking about his love for her saying, quote, "I have a wife who is just from another planet. She is so celestial. I say that I was born into her. That is the best way I can describe how I feel about her and us."
Yes, he said, "born INTO her." Even the interviewer had to ask what that means . . . so Keith clarified. But not really. He said, quote, "It means that I felt like I was just sitting dormant, and she came along and I came to life.
"I was born into her, so who I am now was waiting the whole time."
