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.

R&B star Rihanna is cooperating with investigators building a domestic violence case against her boyfriend, the singer Chris Brown, a police source said Monday.

Recent photos of Chris Brown show the singer with a new neck tattoo, and "Domestic Violence Victim Trigger Warning" doesn't even begin to describe it. Brown's neck is now inscribed with a drawing of a mangled female face. The portrait unmistakably resembles the police photos of a beaten Rihanna leaked after the gruesome 2009 incident, where he repeatedly punched her and smashed her face into the window of their car before the Grammys, and for which he was sentenced to five years' probation and six months of community service, which he has since completed.

Chris Brown had already pleaded guilty to assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna earlier this year. But Wednesday night at the Avalon, in his first local performance since being sentenced to probation and community service in the February altercation in L.A., Brown still seemed to be offering up character witnesses in an attempt to prove, as he insists in a widely circulated YouTube video, that he's no monster. First up was Keri Hilson, who appeared not long into Brown's hourlong set and sang her hit "Turnin' Me On."

Would you buy a puppy from Chris Brown? It's not a theoretical question: The R&B singer actually has a handful of 2-month-old American pit bull terrier puppies for sale online at $1,000 a pop -- and boy are they cute. (What, you expected ugly puppies? They're puppies , for goodness' sake.) The fuzzy munchkins do, however, have to compete with a picture of Breezy that's also on the CB Breeds website , which rep Maureen O'Connor confirmed to the Associated Press is the real deal, set up by her animal-loving client.

Here we go again with Rihanna and Chris Brown.

Today's episode of "When Will Chris Brown Just Go Away?" features what appears to be a rather tipsy Brown declaring his love for two women. "I'm not try to be a player," he says while being driven around in the back of a car. "I'm not a dog. I'm not none of that. " Brown, a pop star turned full-time provocateur, is still on probation from his 2009 assault of Rihanna. Today's bid for attention was tweeted by Brown, and given the title, "The real Chris Brown. " It appears to be filmed off-the-cuff, but inter-spliced among Brown's thoughts on romance are clips of him on tour and shots of Brown drinking champagne straight from the bottle.

When Chris Brown showed up in court on Wednesday, he had a date with him: Rihanna. Ironic, of course, as Brown was showing up for the regular probation status update hearing because of beating Rihanna in the face almost exactly four years ago. Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault in June 2009 and has been on probation ever since. Rihanna was conservatively dressed, relatively speaking, and sitting in the front row, according to L.A. Now . The two left court arm in arm, with Brown looking dejected and Rihanna trying to cheer him up, TMZ said.

Three years after he was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend, singer Rihanna, after a pre-Grammys party, Chris Brown has apparently been released from official pop-star probation. Last night the singer received his first Grammy Award, when his album "F.A.M.E. "was named best R&B album. The singer was also given not one but two coveted performance spots on the telecast. He danced acrobatically around a towering stage of boxes while lip-syncing his songs "Turn Up the Music" and "Beautiful People.
