Why Bloods Are Cool With Chris Brown Reppin’

Published

on

Chris Brown has led many to believe that he is associated with the Bloods, but according to the group, the singer is no gangbanger … At least not officially.

Recently, Brown has been “repping” for the Fruit Town Piru set. In fact, earlier this month, the 25-year-old was spotted in the club throwing up hand signs that are reportedly affiliated with the group. The singer did the same during his performance at the 2014 BET Awards.

But members of the set tell TMZ, although Chris has not officially been initiated, they don’t mind him claiming Fruit Town because “he’s paid his dues in the hood.”

Per the news outlet, the gang doesn’t mind Chris claiming Bloods because “1. He’s hired several of them to work for him 2. Chris comes to the hood and hangs out with them 3. He shot a music video in the neighborhood 4. He donated a thousand pairs of new shoes to Compton kids.”

And of course, we can’t forget about the promotion. Last year, Chris painted a mural in Hawaii of goblin toothed monster cars … Underneath the mural, the singer painted the words Fruits Piru. In August 2013, Chris also mentioned Fruit Town in a tweet directed towards Jay Z, who put the kibosh on Beyonce working with Breezy.

“Beyonce. U might as well go ahead and do this collar. JAY might have a problem wit it, but this Piru!”

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
