Exclusive: Why Chris Brown’s Home Is Now A “Tourist Attraction”

Published

Chris Brown is firing back after being ordered to take down the monster paintings on the side of his Hollywood Hills home.

Just over a month ago, neighbors were furious with Brown after he painted goblin art on the side of his home. After multiple complaints that the art was “frightening”, the “Fine China” singer was ordered to take down the graffiti within 30 days, but Brown isn’t backing down.

The singer has filed an appeal with the city claiming that his artwork is protected by the first amendment. “”The murals are a reflection of [my] aesthetic taste and a reflection of free speech and expression protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution,” Brown claims in the appeal.

HipHollywood spoke with Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association, who told us that neighbors aren’t happy. “Since all the media attention surrounding Brown’s graffiti artwork, the neighborhood has become a tourist attraction,” Negri shared. “But at this point, we are just going to lay low and let the officials handle it,” she added.

The Department of Building and Safety’s board of appeal is currently handling Brown’s case.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
