It’s official, Chris Brown will not be performing in Australia.

Back in September, activists in Australia attempted to ban Brown’s entry into their country for his December shows because of the 2009 assault on then girlfriend, Rihanna … and they were successful.

After several reviews by the immigration minister and other leaders of the country, the pop star’s visa was denied and he will not be performing down under. The promoters from Breezy’s string of shows released a statement confirming the news.

“Mr. Brown and the promoters both remain positive that the tour will take place in the near future,” a statement released by the promoters read. “Mr. Brown wishes to express his deepest gratitude to the fans for their support.”

And speaking of support, while many were against Breezy coming to their country, hundreds were more than open to having the pop star come and perform. HipHollywood can confirm that although Brown’s entry was still being reviewed. both the Sydney and Melbourne shows sold out months ago.

As previously reported, an online petition by activists stated that “speaking out against Chris Brown because his casual visit our country would have enormous symbolic significance, which will only be amplified by our silence. By turning a blind eye to his tour, we send a message to survivors of family violence that it’s not that important and that you should just get over it. “

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
