Rihanna dresses provocatively -- it's the perennial dog-bites-man pop music story. And the Barbados-born singer certainly lives up to that reputation in a new GQ feature , posing for its cover wearing, well, not a whole lot. But the actual article has a more novel tidbit of information, gleaned as the singer flacks her sultry and simmering new album, "Diamonds.

The now-infamous mural of brightly colored monster characters on the wall outside singer Chris Brown's Hollywood Hills home is gone and has been painted over.

An attorney for Chris Brown said Saturday the singer did not take his mural of monster characters down from a wall outside his Hollywood Hills home because of pressure from the city, but simply because he is gearing up to sell the property.

The mural earned notoriety after some of Brown's neighbors complained about the 8-foot-tall, neon-colored figures with goofy eyes and big fangs painted on an exterior wall of his Hollywood Hills home. Brown was given a citation by the city.

Chris Brown won't be charged in a "robbery by sudden snatching" case from February, in which he was accused of taking a woman's cellphone after she tried to snap a picture of him as he left a Miami nightclub in a black Bentley. No evidence was found that Brown intended to steal the phone or deleted any photos, one of which would be needed to make a case for robbery or theft, according to a memo released Friday by the Miami-Dade County state attorney. The phone - which was snatched or dropped in Brown's ride before it was tossed out the window, depending on which of the many witnesses' stories are to be believed - ultimately wound up in the possession of Devon Blanche, the head of security for Tyga, another rapper who had just performed with Brown at the Cameo club in Miami and was also leaving.

Posing well is the best revenge. Especially if you're Rihanna and you've grabbed the cover of the latest issue of Vogue. There she kneels in a barely there red dress, lips parted, in a field of ... amber waves of grain? What's up with that? Some sort of reference to "America the Beautiful" to fit the autumnal election season? We won't bother trying to suss out the mind-set of Vogue's art director, because what you really want to know is what the singer has to say about the two men in her life: Chris Brown and Robert Pattinson.
