While some have forgiven Chris Brown for his actions towards Rihanna and decided to embrace him again, others haven’t been so easy to let the past go.
Producer Timbaland, who was originally slated to have Brown featured on his upcoming release Shock Value II, has now removed the singer completely from his album.
Initially the singer was set to provide his vocals to a song called “The One I Love”.
Rapper D.O.E., who is also featured on the song, stated that the song had to undergo many title changes as they didn’t seem to be appropriate with the events that had taken place with Brown and Rihanna. The first title for the track was “Maniac”, but obvious circumstances wouldn’t allow that to fly.
It has been reported that another reason for being exiled from the album is due to the fact that the singer himself was coming up with inappropriate titles. Suggesting things such as “I Like It When You Cry.” “Love Is A Knockout Punch,” and “Now I’m Really Gonna Kill You” must not have been the type of shock that Tim was looking for, according to a source in his production team.
“We would have kept Chris on the album if he didn’t insist on suggesting inappropriate song titles every three minutes. And I have no idea why he brought brass knuckles to the studio. That stuff is totally unacceptable.”
As he continues to prep for his December 4 release date, Tim has already starting providing visuals to his second helping. A music video was recently released for the single “Morning After Dark” featuring SoShy and is already getting to release the music video to “Say Something” with Drake.
The third single is scheduled to be “Carry Out” featuring Justin Timberlake. It should hit U.S. radio on December 1.
Whether the statements are strictly hot air or hold some truth, the young singer has a long road to climb before he can get back in everyone’s good graces once again.
Every gal has her flaws — even Rihanna. The usually stunning songstress was caught in an unflattering pose on Monday night after partying at Mahiki, a nightclub in London. As she climbed into a limo, photographers caught a glimpse of her too-short skirt — and a bit of cellulite. But the “Good Girl Gone Bad” has at least one male admirer who doesn’t seem to mind her imperfections: Spies tell us that the singer is dating actor Tristan Wilds. The “90210? star was an unexpected guest at a party RiRi held over the weekend at her L.A. home, where she was saying goodbye to pals before taking off for a set of London gigs. “No one knew why Tristan was there initially, because it was not an industry party — it was very intimate,” says a fellow guest. “But everyone quickly realized they weren’t meeting for the first time, because they were openly affectionate for everyone to see.” Our source adds that 21-year-old Rihanna and the 20-year-old actor, who has also starred in “The Wire” and Jay-Z’s “Roc Boys” music video, were introduced by a music producer who has worked with both of them — Wilds is currently working on an album of his own.
They hit it off the moment they laid eyes on each other, the insider says. “He’s a real gentleman,” says the source. “She likes him a lot, and it shows. From the moment he walked into her party, Rihanna lit up.” So what now? Although RiRi will be traveling to promote her album “Rated R,” which drops on Monday, our source thinks the fling will last. “They’ll keep in touch while she’s away,” the snitch insists. “They’re already planning to use iChat and Skype to stay in contact until Tristan finishes shooting ‘90210? for the season and can fly out to meet her on the road.” While that may be the case, Rihanna may want to ask her new beau why he’s palling around with her ex, Chris Brown — on Twitter, at least. On Sunday, Brown tweeted that he was “so tired.” Shortly thereafter, Wilds took to his page to give the singer some words of encouragement. “Keep grinding, kid. All we can do,” he wrote. Let’s hope Rihanna straightens out that issue ASAP — along with her wardrobe.
Chris Brown had his interview with MTV last week, right before Rihanna’s 20/20 interview. As we watched Rihanna’s explanation, we couldn’t help but think… Wonder how CB feels about what she’s saying. MTV went and got the answer…
Now that they both have said their peace, which one do you think is going to sell the most albums
, especially with them being dropped just a couple of weeks apart???
Rihanna was on Good Morning America today for part two of her breaking interview, where she speaks out on her domestic violence situation,continues to toss Breezy under the bus, but admits to still loving him as a person.
She also stated…
“THERE IS A BIT OF AN OBSESSION WITH US…HE HAD NO SOUL IN HIS EYES!”
What better time for Rihanna to finally start speaking about the incident between her and Chris Brown, then right when her album is about to drop. This girl has been in a really dark place and it’s finally time for her to shed some light on the situation…
She still has a lot of pain inside, that she needs to get out. The full interview airs on Friday. GUTTA WORLD will have they full 20/20 epsoide on Saturday, so stayed tooned.
