Chris Brown Released from Jail

Chris Brown was released from jail in Los Angeles last night, less than a month after he was sentenced to 131 days for violating his probation.  The 25-year-old rapper was released at two minutes after midnight Monday, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Brown was actually sentenced to a year in jail on May 9, after he admitted to an L.A. court that he’d violated his probation by getting into an altercation last October with a man outside of a Washington, D.C. hotel.  However, the judge reduced the sentenced by giving Brown credit for the 116 days he…

Taylor Swift: My Next Album Is "Already My Favorite Thing That I've Ever Created"

Justin Bieber Apologizes After British Tabloid Publishes Video Clip of Racist Joke

There's more trouble for Justin Bieber.  When the singer was just 15 years old, he told a racist joke to a group of friends.  Now it's come back to haunt him.  The British tabloid The Sun first published the video, which is five years old. TMZ has since posted it, too, claiming that Justin was aware that there was a camera rolling at the promotional event where it was shot.  Bieber asks, "Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?" then answers, "Run n****rn****rn****r," in a manner that imitates a chainsaw starting. In a statement obtained by ABC News, the pop…
