BET Awards

I think it’s fair to say Chris Brown has been fully rehabilitated into planet pop, which is good news for any kid out there who aspires to be both an R&B star and a wife beater. The pop man was the biggest winner at the BET Awards in the US this weekend, taking home four gongs, including the Viewer’s Choice Awards (even though, somewhat embarrassingly, there was some confusion as to whether that prize had gone to Brown or his former punch bag Rihanna).
