Someone called 911 and when police arrived they found the victim but Chris Brown was not there.

So very sad. Rihanna was going to perform two songs ‘Live Your Life and Disturbia. Chris Brown was also to perform at the Grammy awards show. Justin Timberlake performed with Al Green, Keith Urban and Boys II Men to make up for Chris Brown and Rihanna’s missing performance.
Is Whitney Houston’s Grammy appearance a cause for concern?
Whitney Houston seemed a little disoriented while announcing the Grammy for best R&B album. Maybe the teleprompter was off or she was nervous but she seemed under the influence of something. The night before the Grammy’s Whitney Houston performed at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party and she wowed the crowd. Perez Hilton has a video of her performance at the Clive Davis party here
Usher canceled a performance at pre-Grammy party.
Usher was also set to perform at Clive Davis party but had to pull out to be with his wife. Usher’s wife, Tameka Foster, suffered complications from plastic surgery in Brazil, Access Hollywood reported. A neurosurgeon from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has flown to Brazil. I wish both Tameka Foster and Usher well. I do have to wonder why she choose Brazil for plastic surgery.
