Celebrity gossip: Rape, rebound, and reprove

Carissa DuhamelCopy Editor

Chris Brown has never been known to hold back from expressing the way he’s feeling, but lately his inner revelations may be a bit more appropriate admitted behind the closed doors of a therapist’s office. Last week Brown, 24, told UK’s Guardian his first sexual experience with a woman occurred at the tender age of…eight.

“It’s different in the country,” he said after disclosing he lost his virginity to a 14 or 15-year-old girl during his earliest stages of pubescence. “By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I’m saying? Like, girls, we weren’t afraid to talk to them; I wasn’t afraid. So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it. You can be the best at it.”

He also stated he and his companions spent a substantial amount of their childhood watching pornography.

Brown also commented on the recent revoke of his probation after getting involved in a hit-and-run accident this summer, an event that resulted in an additional 1,000 community service hour court ruling. Brown said, “They want me to be the example. Young black kids don’t have the fairer chances. You can see Lindsay Lohan in and out of court every day, you see Charlie Sheen, whoever else, do what they want to do.”


The R&B singer made a similar public statement in an interview with Jet Magazine in late September about rapper Jay Z, 43, contrasting his own public defamation against Blue Ivy’s dad, who he claimed “got a pass” for his 1999 stabbing of record executive Lance “Un” Rivera.

Jay Z has not responded to this statement.

Another rapper was cast into the spotlight last week, but under much less criminal allegations. Big Sean, 25, popped the question to his girlfriend, “Glee” star Naya Rivera, 26 – and she said yes.

Rivera appeared at Latina magazine’s Hollywood Hot List Oct. 3 sporting her four-carat diamond ring, publicly revealing the couple’s engagement. The actress has been photographed numerous times since flashing her new pre-marital bling for the paparazzi to see.


The pair first revealed their romance at the premiere of movie “42” back in April of this year, shortly after Sean broke up with his longterm girlfriend since high school, Ashley Marie.

The rapper has made numerous songs referencing his ex-love both during and after their relationship, including hit “Beware,” and “Ashley,” released on his Aug. 27 album “Hall of Fame.”

Rivera made a song of her own naming Sean’s ex, called “Sorry.” The “Glee” singer croons, “If you used to be the one/Well I don’t know sh-t about it” in addition to calling the rapper’s former girlfriend “crazy” in the song’s chorus. Big Sean includes his own rap on the track about the couple’s new love.

Ex Ashley Marie, on the other hand, has chosen to keep her mouth pressed firmly shut about the end of her and Sean’s romance, as well as his quick new flame for actress Rivera.

Miley Cyrus, in converse, still can’t seem to keep her tongue-wagging mouth closed. The twenty-year-old “Wrecking Ball” songstress opened a twitter battle with Irish singer, Sinead O’Connor, 46, last week after the infamous SNL guest musician addressed an open letter to Cyrus about her recent publicity stunts.

After learning the former Hannah Montana star’s video for “Wrecking Ball” was inspired by her 1990 Prince cover, “Nothing Compares 2 U,” O’Connor wrote, “I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way ‘cool’ to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos. It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether its the music business or yourself doing the pimping.”

Cyrus didn’t take to this seasoned advice too kindly. The platinum twerker responded on Twitter calling out O’Connor’s mental illness, comparing her to psychiatric patient star Amanda Bynes, 24.

What does dad Billy Ray Cyrus think of his daughter’s social media defamation of her ex-idol? Maybe somewhere in America he and Miley are still twerking…
