Rihanna still has a soft spot for Chris Brown -- or at least gets a little weepy over the hole he left in her life after he beat her in the face the night before the Grammys in February 2009. "I lost my best friend," she told Oprah Winfrey tearfully in an interview to air Sunday night on OWN. "Everything I knew switched in a night, and I couldn't control that. " The fallout was hard to process, she said, continuing in choked-up tones. "It became a circus and I felt protective.

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. " Writer Jay Bulger (in his first GQ feature - that's a heck of an assignment!) trails Ms. Fenty for a night of clubbing and along the way gets her first candid comments about the infamous Chris Brown-Drake brawl that erupted at a New York nightclub in June.

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.

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. Mark Geragos, Brown's attorney, said there have been erroneous reports that the entertainer took the mural down because of a lost appeal. It had nothing to do with the city, Geragos said. 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.
