Posters featuring Rihanna’s battered face have been plastered around Stockholm, Sweden, protesting Chris Brown’s concert in the city November 19.
The posters feature the Rihanna photos taken by police after Brown’s 2009 arrest for felony domestic violence. It’s not known who is responsible for the “advertisements.”
The objective, clearly, is to compel concert organizers to cancel Brown’s show because of his violent past; this is not the first such opposition he’s encountered.
Nor will it be the last, at this rate and given his rekindled romance withMore >

The moron who chased Justin Bieber around a Los Angeles freeway earlier this month might soon pay for his actions in court.
As previously reported, the artist was pulled over on July 6 for driving around 80 miles per hour, but witnesses confirmed he was doing his best to speed away from multiple members of the paparazzi who were after him for photographs.

Boston residents will not be eating more chicken any time soon. At least not from Chick-fil-A.
Following that company’s President coming out and admitting he’s against gay marriage, Boston Mayor Mayor Thomas Menino has halted plans for Chick-fil-A to open in his city and said in a statement:
“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against the population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion. That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have aMore >
So far, so very good for Emily Maynard and Jef Holm.
The single mother chose the entrepreneur on last night’s Bachelorette finale and, naturally, many viewers have already started counting down to their split.
But Emily and Jef appeared together on Good Morning America today and didn’t look or sound like a couple on the verge of a split.
Holm, in fact, said he’ll soon be moving to Charlotte to spend more time with his fiancee and her daughter, Ricki, although he’ll be getting a “separate place” in the city.
“We’re going to combine ourMore >

A bootleg fireworks fail on some random guy’s street? You almost expect that on July 4. But the seventh-largest U.S. city screwing up? That’s more noteworthy!
The July 4 fireworks show in San Diego ended abruptly after a malfunction on three barges in the city’s coastal bay caused all the explosives to go off at the same time.
An extravaganza that was supposed to last 25-30 minutes was compressed into about that many seconds. Silver lining: those 25-30 seconds were awesome!!More >
Katie Holmes surprised many by filing for divorce from Tom Cruise, but the apparent reason behind her decision would likely be anyone’s first guess.
Sources say the Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes divorce is happening for precisely that reason, specifically her concern that Suri will be introduced to it.
Their daughter is now six, the age where Scientology will begin to be a major part of her life, and Katie fears Suri will be dragged in too deep.
Holmes has never fully committed to Scientology, TMZ reports, despite her ties with the church and more than five years of marriage toMore >

Katy Perry was channeling her inner flapper Tuesday night.
The star, looking like a character straight out of The Great Gatsby, turned heads at a City of Hope event in Los Angeles with finger waves, a funky head piece in her hair, a long pearl necklace and a pink-ish dress that resembled a neglige.
In short … she was sexy. See Katy Perry pictures below!
Once inside the event – at which the City of Hope’s Music And Entertainment Industry Group honored Bob Pittman at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA – Perry changed into a simpler black dress … leaving us wanting more ’20s.
