It’s the job of artists to entertain us, but these stars took things to the next level. The 10 artists included on this list have done everything: offering their fans lap dances, letting them cop a feel, and even kissing them in front of thousands of people. That’s one hell of a way to say thank you for the support! We don’t know how eager we would be to get so close to these stars, but if the fans like it, then I guess we love it…

Janet Jackson

If you didn’t know, Ms. Jackson does this. The Velvet Rope Tour anyone? Janet Jackson has been seducing her male fans and making their fantasies come true for years. The music legend doesn’t see anything wrong with a little bump and grind with her fans, and sometimes, as she did in this video, she sticks her tongue in their mouths…

Exclusive Clip: Karrueche Breaks Down While Discussing Being Betrayed By Chris Brown [Watch]

Earlier today, OWN released multiple clips from Karrueche Tran’s highly anticipated interview with Iyanla Vanzant about her tumultuous relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. In each clip, Tran tries to be strong as she is forced to swallow some hard truths about her toxic ex-lover and the red flags that probably should have sent her packing a long time ago.

We were able to obtain an exclusive clip from the network of Tran’s interview during which she eventually breaks down about all that she has been going through—including Brown’s recent paternity scandal. Similar to the other clips, the aspiring model attempts to show a brave face, but as Vanzant instructs her to get out of her thoughts and simply feel the hurt and betrayal, Tran momentarily loses it.

“I feel hurt because the man I love hurt me and betrayed me,” Tran says. “I also feel like I let myself down,” she continues before cracking.

According to our sources at OWN, this was the first emotional breakdown of the interview. In other clips, which you can also check out below, she opens up about knowing that Chris was seeing Rihanna during their relationship, airing out their business on social media and making the mistake of placing his needs before her own.

“Iyanla Exclusive: Karrueche Tran,” airs on Saturday, March 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

About That Time I Knowingly Played The Role Of The “Main Chick” For A Cheating Man

March 26th, 2015 - By Alyssa Johnson

I recently wrote about how shocked I was when I heard women and men receiving shout-outs on the radio for being side pieces. While side-piece culture seems to be thriving nowadays, there’s also the issue of the “main chick.” To me, knowingly being the main chick for a cheating man is just as bad as being the other woman, and I can tell you why based on experience.

The main chick is a woman who has been in a relationship or marriage for a long time and has put up with a lot of crap from her man to be considered number one on his roster. If they’re not married, she’s the woman who has “wifey” status. The main chick is the one who through intuition, or proof, knows that her man steps out every once in a while; but she’ll justify it because he comes home to her at the end of the day.

This used to be my reality when I was younger, and for lack of a better word, dumb. I was with a guy for two years on and off. Throughout those two years, I caught him cheating more than once. Looking back on that time is extremely embarrassing for me because I still can’t believe I allowed myself to go through something so degrading and humiliating. The reasons I mentioned above are partly why I stayed with him, but honestly, I was friends with his mom and I felt pressured by her to stay.

When I found out he’d had a woman in my car when we switched vehicles for the day, I called his mom to vent. Her response was, “Well you get to go on the trips don’t you? You’re the one he comes home to.” These were supposed to be words of wisdom and encouragement, but after hearing such excuses one too many times, it felt crazy to me. As I held the phone to my ear, I listened to a woman trying to rationalize why I should stay with her philandering son. The main chick was supposed to be a consolation prize because I was living a “great life,” even if I was completely miserable.

Being the main chick simply didn’t work for me. Oftentimes I felt like I was living in the twilight zone because I had a man who repeatedly made promises to me that he simply could not or would not keep. It was painful and I didn’t feel like the designer clothes, jewelry, or trips were worth it any longer. Instead, I craved loyalty, honesty and most importantly, his heart. Sadly, I couldn’t get those things, so I knew I had to leave and put an end to this self-esteem crushing relationship for good.

Karrueche Tran recently ended her work as main chick after learning that Chris Brown fathered a child at one point in their relationship. Tran broke her silence on the news by tweeting, “Listen, one can only take so much. The best of luck to Chris and his family. No baby drama for me.”

After years of embracing her main chick status and dealing with public scrutiny for sticking by his side while he played her for Rihanna (and obviously others, including the mother of his daughter), Brown did what a lot of men who cheat do: he fathered a child outside of the relationship.

This is usually how it goes when you’re dealing with a guy who has you as his main chick, but won’t make you his one and only. He doesn’t do these things because he is a terrible person. Instead, he behaves this way in your relationship because you’ve shown him that you’ll put up with just about anything. A man can only get away with what you allow him to.

As for me, once I removed myself from my position in that tumultuous relationship, I didn’t look back. There is so much more to life than being a man’s doormat and that’s exactly what a main chick is. I do think about my ex from time to time and wonder what woman he is making miserable now, but I would never deal with a guy like that again. Zebras don’t change their stripes, you know?

She Is Protective And Forgiving: Iyanla Vanzant Shares Thoughts On Karrueche Tran Show

Iyanla Vanzant Shares Thoughts On Karrueche Tran Show

We’re all waiting anxiously for this Saturday when OWN airs the highly anticipated interview with Iyanla Vanzant and Karrueche Tran. And though we’ll have to be patient, Iyanla Vanzant recently spoke to Sister2Sister about the upcoming episode and what we can expect to see from Ms. Karrueche Tran on Saturday, March 28.

“The thing that was so surprising to me is how protective and forgiving she is of Chris. She repeatedly offered that he is only human and humans make mistakes. She said she knows he loves her and she just wishes things could change for him. I think I am a bit more troubled by his behavior than she is. I am disturbed that he has such a gift and blessing and continues to dishonor God, himself and women with no accountability. Prison was punishment and punitive. It did not teach responsibility or accountability for his behavior or as the steward of a gift. Anyway, she made no attempt to bash him and will probably come across as naive and relatable”

This really isn’t all that surprising. Karrueche has been excusing bad behavior. Hopefully, her interview with Iyanla will help her achieve some type of clarity.

Free At Last! Chris Brown Off Probation

It looks like Chris Brown is finally a free man.

A judge ruled that the singer has finally completed the terms of his probation and officially closed the assault case against him.

The singer was placed on probation after he brutally attacked his then-girlfriend, Rihanna hours before the 2009 Grammy Awards. In addition to probation, Chris was required to undergo domestic violence counseling. He also entered rehab, where he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and complications from substance abuse.

 

This will be the first time since 2009, that Chris will not have to report to any officials.

After  hearing the results of his case, Brown tweeted, “IM OFF PROBATION!!!!!!!! Thank the Lord!!!!!!”

The last few years have been extremely messy for Chris. We’re hoping this helps push Chris towards a more positive future.

 

After Stepping On Her Heart, Chris Brown Asks Karrueche Not To Let Anger Turn Her Into A “THOT”

While Chris Brown continues to play daddy with his new-found family, his now ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran is soaking up the sun with her best friend Christina Milian on a Miami beach and she appears to be thoroughly enjoying the single life. The aspiring actress made it clear weeks ago that she exited stage left immediately after hearing the baby news, but apparently Chris is still all up in her business.

Earlier today, she shared a series of bikini photos, including one where she playfully turns her booty to the camera. Of course, Chris being the Internet troll that he is wasted no time commenting on it. From the looks of it, he believes that he somehow caused her to post the revealing photo so he’s advising her not to let his mistakes change who she is as a person.

“Thirst trap 101,” the “Loyal” singer wrote beneath her photo. “Continue to be a lady beautiful… U r perfect… Don’t let the THOT form from anger.”

Chris Brown warns ex against becoming a "THOT" out of anger. Apparently, he has a heart now...

After repeatedly embarrassing her, disrespecting her and then having a baby on her, it’s a wonder that he can fix his mouth to say anything about how she carries herself or what she does. Ironically, just yesterday Nia Guzman was photographed in Houston visiting the singer with their daughter, Royalty.

Sigh.

On Karrueche Tran And Knowing When You’ve Taken Enough In A Toxic Relationship

We enter a space in our relationships, whether romantic or platonic, where we go above and beyond – no matter how many unsavory situations have left us tired, in tears, angry or a combination of all three. Trying to forgive and be the bigger person over and over again can often lead to damage that is reflected internally, and sometimes externally. In an attempt to keep relationships and connections going with others, we forget to care and love ourselves.

Tested, tried and ran through the Internet mud, Karrueche Tran has been the butt of many jokes for her messy off-and-on relationship with Chris Brown. Constantly operating on defense as people, including her partner, tear her down on social media, Tran has been the bigger person despite all the unwarranted hate and hurt.

For many women, Tran’s story isn’t unique. Oftentimes, we put up with the social spats, our friends’ side-eyes and the outside world’s two cents. We often feel the need to overexplain, much like Tran did in the post below after yet another quarrel with Breezy:

I refuse to be repeatedly mistreated especially by someone who claims to love me. That’s not love. And if that’s what you define as love then I don’t want it. Yes, I have not been so smart before in the past but I made a promise to be a better and stronger woman and I’m keeping that promise. If you can’t love me the right way, then don’t love me at all.

Despite the back-and-forth, she went back to him after sharing this message with the public.

But alas, there comes a time when enough really needs to be enough. With reports that Chris Brown is indeed the father of a nine-month-old baby girl, Tran appears to have wiped her hands clean of Brown and the situation.

“Listen. One can only take so much,” tweeted Tran. “The best of luck to Chris and his family. No baby drama for me.”

It appears that what she wrote on Instagram all those weeks ago about refusing to be repeatedly mistreated finally clicked with Tran. Sometimes it takes the ultimate embarrassment for us to realize that we’re playing a part in our own unhappiness by sticking around.

I get it. We fear being lonely. We fear the unknown of the future. But we shouldn’t sacrifice our self-respect, self-love or morals for what looks but doesn’t feel good to us. Many would have liked to see Tran part ways with the singer eons ago, but hey, love often causes us to offer many chances to one person that we would never afford to another human being. Better late than never.

If this is the end of this drama-filled saga for Tran, I hope she focuses on the things that make her happiest and spends time loving herself before anyone else. Brown may have offered her a lot of opportunities that she wouldn’t have received on her own, but all that shouldn’t be at the expense of her happiness and sanity.

In a relationship, what shenanigns would you draw the line at?

Chris Brown Lashes Out At Critics…Again

Chris Brown has yet to comment on reports that he fathered a child by video model Nia Guzman-Amey, but he has had quite a bit to say about what people are saying about him and the situation. Last week, the “Loyal” singer invited critics to kiss his a–. This week, he’s scolding society’s youth for being so negative. His message, which was posted to Instagram reads:

“Some of you ignorant human beings on here have yet to grasp the concept of your own lives. This is for encouragement for anyone dealing with their own issues. Half of yall pages are private and the others look so damn depressing I understand why u feel like u have the right to say some of the most outrageous things possible. U don’t have to like me but one thing is for sure… You all are looking though.. That’s the [difference] between leadership and being a cancer to this planet. We have no real leaders or people to join together for great things anymore. At least not the youth… We will one day drown in a pool of our own negativity. Be blessed or be quiet.”

He also shared this image:

Chris’ mother and manager, Joyce Hawkins, also had a bit to say about the public and their negativity.

On this week’s episode of the Young and Reckless

Nah, just kidding, but things are getting messier by the day with Nia Guzman and Chris Brown.

According to brand new reports, Nia Guzman will allegedly face child support reduction and legal action for talking about her baby with Chris Brown. TMZ (Of course) is reporting that part of Chris’ deal with Nia was that she remain silent about the baby. In exchange of her silence, she would receive a large amount of money monthly. This amount would be larger than the money she would receive if she filed for child support.

However, now, things are changing. Chris and his team believe Nia leaked stories about their relationship and are now taking legal action. They would like to input a child support order in place, therefore significantly cutting the amount of money she would have received monthly.

Of course, all of these details are purely speculation. Chris has yet to confirm or deny the rumors, and has no plans on doing so. He recently told his fans,

Chris Brown

Well then, that concludes another episode of the young and reckless. Will you tune in next week?
