Chris and Rih Rih fans are in for a new treat.
The former couple known for making interesting duos are reportedly back at it again. Okay, it may not be on purpose on this time. However, the track, leaked by L.A Leakers, was originally recorded for Chris Brown’s “X” album. The song was eventually scrapped from the album and stayed under the radar until today.
In the single titled, “Put It Up” the duo sing a sultry love-making song. Some of the lyrics include, “I’m gonna explore all over your body.” I’ll be the first to say I like this song more than their previous songs “Cake” and “Nobody’s Business.” If it was released with the X album, I’m sure it would have been a hit.
Take a listen for yourself below.
Last month, we learned that Chris Brown fathered a child during his relationship with ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran. The news came as a shock to many and for a while, Chris did not publicly confirm whether or not the paternity reports were true. However, as time went on, photos of little Royalty being taken to visit her father during a tour stop in Houston, Texas surfaced and the rest was history.
Though it seems that Chris only recently learned of Royalty’s existence, the two already appear to be bonding beautifully. Last night, the singer took to Instagram to share his first photo with the bright-eyed tot.
“God has blessed me with my twin. #ROYALTY,” he captioned the photo.
The “Loyal” singer then followed up with another image of the curly-haired cutie.
Earlier this week, the troubled star took to Instagram with a heartfelt message about wanting to do better for the sake of his family. Perhaps, Miss Royalty will give him the strength and the drive to accomplish that goal.
Of course, a couple of social media photos are not proof that a man is being an active and engaged father, but I will admit that it was both surprising and refreshing to see Chris share a photo of his baby girl, considering the scandal surrounding her conception. In many cases, we see celebrity men who father children outside of what’s supposed to be a monogamous relationship completely ignore the child in public forums.
Anyway, as I’ve stated before, I’m rooting for Chris. Hopefully, this is the beginning of many steps in the right direction.
Last night, Chris Brown took to Instagram with a heartfelt note about wanting to do better for his family. According to the post, the singer realizes that he needs to change his mentality. His full post reads:
Every step I take will only be to greatness. Learning myself every day and striving to make a difference. Thriving not surviving. I can’t make anyone love me or like me but for the people who do, you are highly appreciated and valued. I wanna grow into a great man and take care of my family. In order for me to change the world I have to change my mentality.
Every step I take will only be to greatness. Learning myself everyday and striving to make a difference. Thriving not surviving. I can't make anyone love me or like me but for the people who do, you are highly appreciated and valued. I wanna grow into a great man and take care of my family. In order for me to change the world I have to change my mentality.
When I first read his little confession, all I could think about was the 2010 BET Awards when he broke down crying while singing Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror.” Despite all of his missteps, I have always believed that deep down inside Chris possessed the desire to change for the better. Unfortunately, it seems that he lacks the discipline and the knowhow to actually see this process to completion. Hopefully, he’ll seek out, receive and stick with whatever assistance he needs to get his life on track this time.
Some believed that Chris Brown would be enraged by his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran’s sit-down interview with Iyanla Vanzant, but apparently, he wasn’t. In actuality, it seems that he’s still hoping to reunite with his on-again, off-again girlfriend.
Chris and Karrueche fan page Chrae All Day recently posted a snapshot of Chris planting a kiss on Karrueche’s forehead from his music video “Autumn Leaves” on Instagram.
“Kisses on forehead…kae go and get your man girl,” the photo was captioned.
Chris randomly commented on the photo and hinted that he’s working on reestablishing his relationship with Karrueche.
“Everything takes time,” he wrote.
During Karrueche’s OWN interview last month, she expressed that Chris has continuously apologized for stepping out on her and producing a child.
“He said he’s sorry, he’s dropped flowers off and tried to, you know, say sorry and be back in good graces,” she told Iyanla. “He’s sorry for what he put me through.”
As outrageous as this entire situation is, it’s probably only a matter of time before these two are back together again.
Chances are Chris Brown isn’t your favorite person, but there’s no denying his talent. A random remixed version of Beyoncé’s “Jealous” featuring the troubled singer hit the Internet today and we’re loving it. On the track, Brown opens up about how insecure he feels when his girlfriend’s phone goes off late at night and when she has girls’ night out. It’s unclear how long ago the song was recorded and whether or not Chris remixed it on his own, but it sounds pretty good.
“Queen Bey, I’m trippin’
‘Cause I’m a lil’ insecure when your phone go off
Constant, they be callin’ at 3 in the mornin’
Know I do the same sh-t but girl, it’s different
And if I can’t, you can’t f-ck with no exes
You got me moaning for extras
You just love making me jealous
Hanging out with your girls all night and staying out until tomorrow
Girl, you got me all kind of crazy, sippin’ all on that bottle
I see you tryna flex
So mad, I’m drunk texting
Now I’m reminiscing how we fell in love in Texas
Girl, I’m jealous”

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…
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…
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.
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?
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.
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.
