Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 storm when it first made landfall in Texas.
We have all seen the photos of the flooding. We've seen highways that have flooded so high that the water above them has waves.
We've seen people standing on rooftops, people riding boats between houses, and heard the horrifying stories of people who were swept away by the water.
Celebrities have heard this, too, and they have been using their considerable platforms and their own personal resources to help with the relief effort.
As climate change continues to destabilize what were once more temperate weather patterns, these "500 year storms" will be coming more and more frequently.
Many believe that we need a better coordinate governmental response when these disasters strike. It's good to hear stories of private citizens acting as heroes, but it's better if they never have to.
In the mean time, however, boat owners have been taking time off of work and traveling with their boats towards Texas where they hope to help distribute supplies and reach people who are still stranded.
Celebrities are donating money to the relief effort, but some stars are doing even more.

Celebrity domestic violence occurs even in the most seemingly-stable relationships.
Hollywood violence knows no gender, age, or reason, and some of these allegations are gonna curl your toes.
Who dragged his partner with a car? Who beat someone's face in so badly she needed to be hospitalized? Whose own mother and sister accused this superstar, award-winning actor of physical abuse?
Things are about to get real deep and dark in here, so we hope you have a flashlight, a blanket, and a box of tissues, because ugh.
Also, hey, can someone remind these asshats that violence is never the answer?
That could be pretty helpful, all things considered.

It’s been over two years since Karrueche Tran broke up with Chris Brown, but his presence continues to loom large to this day.
It seems that the notoriously volatile R&B singer has made it impossible for the 29-year-old model to move on with her life.
Tran revealed in court this week that Chris Brown stalked and threatened her for months following the couple’s breakup.
TMZ reports that her testimony helped convince a judge to grant a five-year restraining order against Brown, effective today.
He is barred from contacting her or being in the same location as Karrueche for that entire time period. Why?
Tran revealed in court that Brown was violent with her on more than one occasion during their relationship.
Then, after their breakup, he repeatedly threatened her with violence and demanded that she return jewelry and other gifts he had given her.
When she refused, Tran told the judge at her hearing this afternoon, Brown became increasingly aggressive toward her.
“I’m not being nice to you no more,” he texted her at one point.
“If I see you out in public again and I’m there I will make you hate me even more, don’t be anywhere I’m out in public.”
“I’m going to ban you from all events.”
Brown allegedly issued threats via social media, sometimes in response to photos of Karrueche in the presence of male friends.
“I can get my money back and I’m tired of playing games,” he reportedly wrote on one of her accounts.
“Bitch I will beat the s–t out of you,” he commented at one point, later threatening, “I promise you I will make your life hell.”
Tran says he recently wrote “Imma kill blood” under a photo of her and actor Michael B. Jordan.
Brown was not in court today and was reportedly barred from listening to the proceedings over the phone.
His lawyer, however, mercilessly grilled Tran, accusing her of “taunting” Brown by claiming that she’d sold the jewelry he gave her.
The attorney also implied that Tran was lying about being mistreated by Brown, pointing out that she has never filed a criminal complaint against the singer.
The judge wasn’t having it and granted Tran’s request for legal protection from the star, whose reputation precedes him at this point.
Tran and Brown broke up after she learned that he had a child from a previous relationship with Nia Guzman that he had kept a secret for several years.
It was not the first time the couple called it quits.
Tran had broken up with Brown on several prior occasions, most notably when he shared an explicit photo of her on social media without her knowledge or consent.
Brown, of course, has a well known history of abusing women.
In 2009, he was arrested for violently assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna, a shocking and gruesome story that has followed him ever since.
Tran says she feared a similar fate.
Throughout much of her relationship with Brown, she said she worried that he would make good on various threats of violence after they broke up.
The singer has yet to speak on today’s ruling, but he did speak about Rihanna in a recent documentary, “Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life.”
Brown says that Rihanna grew very upset after they left a pre-Grammy party in his Lamborghini that night over eight years ago.
He let his girlfriend go through his phone in order to prove he wasn’t keeping any secrets after he had spoken with an ex earlier.
Only she did come across an opened text from this woman … who informed Brown she’d be at the aforementioned party.
At some point in the intense argument, Brown punched Rihanna in the face, bloodying her lip … and that it got worse. Much worse.
Rihanna grabbed his penis and Chris bit her arm. She scratched his CDs and yelled that someone was trying to kill her.
With the car pulled over at this point, a neighbor overheard and called the police. He was charged with felony assault.
Warning: don't listen to this new Chris Brown track unless you're prepared to blush for the rest of the day, perhaps the rest of your entire life. Because yes, it is that obscene.
For some unfathomable reason, Chris Brown still has a career. Bizarre, right?
Yes, he's talented at singing and dancing and all that, but he's also The Worst. But still, people allow him to record and release music, and so here we are.
Last night, Chris gave us this new jam called "Privacy," and it's ... well, it sure is something.
The lyrics are remarkably suggestive. Or not "suggestive" so much as "explicitly sexual."
But it gets worse -- with the story Chris weaves in this song, a lot of people are assuming that it's about Rihanna and their supposedly rekindled relationship.
"Know my lovin' don't change," he sings at one point. "I don't really give a f-ck what a hater say."
Get it, because we've heard that Rihanna's friends (and also the rest of the whole entire world) are urging her to stay away from him? Perhaps we're all the "haters" in question.
Then, at the end of the song, Chris horrifyingly raps "Stop runnin' from this dick, I ain't 'bout to let you slide this time."
That could easily be about Rihanna, who's slid away from him twice now. And goodness knows she should be running from "this dick."
Listen to the song below, and let us know what you think:
Making bad music doesn’t make you a bad person. Threatening to hit women, and then doing it, makes you a disgusting human being. Chris Brown is a disgusting human being.
Former girlfriend Karrueche Tran has filed a restraining order against Brown claiming that he’s threatened to kill her and harm her friends.
According to TMZ:
Karrueche claims in a sworn statement to the judge, earlier this month Chris “told a few people that he was going to kill me.” She then says Chris told the friends if he can’t have her then no one else can, threatening he was going to “take me out” and “threatened to shoot me.”
Karrueche also says several years ago Chris “punched me in my stomach twice,” and “pushed me down the stairs.” This would have been during the time Chris was on probation for the Rihanna beating.
The legal docs also claim Chris has threatened to harm her friends and even recently threw a drink at one of them.
Can we get Derrick Lewis to smash this fool?
The restraining order calls for Brown to stay 100 yards away from Tran, her mother, and her brother. Yeah, that will stop him. How about we just keep him under house arrest and never pay attention to him again in hopes that he goes away?
Too bad that fight with Soulja Boy is never going to happen.
In The Aziz Ansari VS. Chris Brown Feud, Michael Rapaport Makes The Strange Choice To Defend Chris Brown
Oh, Michael, noooooo.
As you may recall, the Parks And Recreations alum took a dig at C.Breezy while hosting SNL and the Loyal singer did NOT appreciate the shade. In fact, the A-lister clapped back at the Master Of None creator with a racially-insensitive slur. Ugh.
So, obviously, we were shocked to hear that Mr. Rapaport is siding with Brown in this controversial beef. The Boston Public actor even went as far as to call Ansari a "little politically correct fuck" on his I Am Rapaport: Stereo Podcast. DAYUM!
Unfortunately, Michael didn't stop there as he added:
"Aziz Ansari, who the fuck do you think you are? Why are you dragging him [Chris Brown] through the mud? Who are you to talk about him?'"
Ummm, it's called a joke! Regardless, The Heat star felt the need to REALLY drag the 33-year-old as he continued:
"Obviously, nobody supports beating women. OK. This guy has obviously suffered, you see all the trouble he has and all the trouble that surrounds him. He's definitely dealing with some shit and dealing with his own personal demons. But Aziz Ansari, you are one of these holier-than-thou political correct police. This little fuck. Mr. racial, he's like Mr. provocative… he's like, 'Oh, the brown people this.' He's always talking about the brown people and I get that he tries to be racially provocative. He is racially provocative…
I said this once and I'll say it again. If you watch his show Master of None,… Aziz Ansari, Mr. fucking racially provocative, Mr. fucking button pusher, politically correct judger, has never seen a white girl he hasn't liked. This guy, every single girl on his show that he's with, white girls...You ain't never saw a white girl you didn't like, did you Mr. brown guy?"
Look who's being provocative now? Clearly, the 46-year-old didn't enjoy Aziz's Netflix show. LOLz!
However, despite his animosity towards the Emmy winner, Michael is still a fan of Ansari's as he concluded:
"Fuck you, you little politically correct fuck, you. I'm not saying he's not funny. I'm not saying he's not talented. And I'm not saying his voice isn't warranted, but you are not holier than thou."
On the flip side, Rapaport supports the SNL writer Katie Rich who was suspended for making an insensitive tweet about Barron Trump. After claiming that Hollywood would "embrace" Rich after her social media snafu, the NY native noted:
"Her career will be just fine. She'll be back writing on 'Saturday Night Live' and she will be taking meetings in the offseason… you will hear about her selling a movie to a big studio ASAP. That's the way things work in Hollywood."
Again, why are you so pissed at Aziz? We mean, aside from the mixed messages, he pretty much lost his argument the minute he started defending Brown. Sigh...
[Image via PNP/WENN.]
Stay classy Chris.
Aziz Ansari hosted SNL last Saturday. The reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Ansari, of course, talked about Donald Trump and the elections. He didn’t go off on hating on the Republicans. Instead, he framed the problems in, *gasp*, a mature way. If you haven’t seen the monologue, here it is.
I’ll give Dave Chappelle’s monologue a slightly better mark. More low-key, the jokes wormed their way into your head.
In one joke, Ansari said “Donald Trump is basically the Chris Brown of politics.” He explained that maybe you like Brown’s music, but you’re not into all his “extracurriculars,” i.e. whuppin’ on your girl.
Brown didn’t like that.
He Instagrammed his response. And it was racist.
Yup, “FUCK NO!!!!!! Somebody tell ALADDIN HOP OFF MY DICK!”
In another ‘gram, he wrote that he “can’t catch a fucking break.” Does being a racist have something to do with that?
Oh and by the way, Aladdin takes place in the Middle East and Ansari is Indian. But you know, racists aren’t gonna care about geography.
Sure, why not? Whatever.
Ok, so first off this is fucking crazy ridiculous. Soulja Boy and Chris Brown were originally supposed to fight, with Mike Tyson training Chris Brown.
Because I guess men that beat the shit out of women gotta stick together.
That’s not happening anymore, probably because Soulja Boy bitched out, but in response Mike Tyson dropped an insane diss track and video aimed at Soulja Boy called “If You Show Up.”
Yeah, we have reached peak surreality.
The video is just hot girls working out in the gym and involves Shakespearean level disses aimed at Soulja Boy like:
If you show up? it’s going down
I’m gonna teach him how to knock your ass out
Soulja Boy was talking shit on Instagram
But social media don’t make a fucking man
OH SNAP OH SNAP OH SNAP
The best line in the whole song is probably:
Imma sting like a venereal disease
What the fuck is 2017? Donald Trump is gonna be president. Mike Tyson is rapping about training Chris Brown to kill Soulja Boy?
What is happening?
In case you haven’t heard, Chris Brown and Soulja Boy are scheduled to fight each other. Mike Tyson is training Chris Brown, write your own domestic violence jokes, while Floyd Mayweather is training Soulja Boy.
Tyson has already revealed his game plan from Brown.
“I’m training Chris, he chose me as his trainer to take on Soulja Boy. And Soulja Boy, what the fuck you talking about? I’m gonna teach him how to bite somebody’s ear. Yeah, that’s right. I’m gonna teach him every dirty trick in the book to knock you out. I’m not going to teach him how to run.”
I’m 99% certain that this fight won’t happen, but I really hope I’m wrong and that this gets the full HBO treatment. I want weekly 24/7 specials, press conferences, weigh-ins, everything. This whole thing is absurd, so go all out with it and make it worth our time.
Tyson’s promise to “teach him every dirty trick in the book” is a good tactic, but it’s not like Mayweather doesn’t know those same tricks. Not only does Floyd know the same tricks, but he’s also a better fighter than Tyson.
At least we can all agree that if the fight does happen, we’re all rooting for Soulja Boy, right?
I’ll bet you $15 Soulja Boy has a new song coming out soon and is tryna scrape his way back into relevance by fighting people on the internet.
That big $15 will probably be more than his upcoming single makes.
Chris brown just called me and said he wanna fight me because I liked @karrueche picture on Instagram this nigga a bitch
— Soulja Boy (@souljaboy) January 3, 2017
If this is real, Chris Brown will be dead in 48 hours. Unless Chris Brown only hits teen girls after all. Nah. He stomped on a man’s head one time. Soulja Boy then told ’em in a series of tweets:
Aye @chrisbrown pull up nigga I'll knock yo Bitch Ass out stop snorting so much coke nigga. FRUITS
— Soulja Boy (@souljaboy) January 3, 2017
That nigga @chrisbrown better not tweet shit with his pussy ass. He called my phone trippin so now I'm trippin Fuck nigga. Fruits!
— Soulja Boy (@souljaboy) January 3, 2017
Chris Brown then called him a snitch via video message.
And Soulja Boy tore him up by reminding everybody that he beat the shit out of Rihanna.
All this because Soulja Boy commented with some heart eyes on his ex-gf’s instagram pic.
Somebody put these kids in time out and take away their phones.
Chris Brown surprised his fans by releasing Party, his latest single, and now just a day later he’s going after those same fans a little bit in a now-deleted Instagram rant about the lack of support he’s getting on iTunes!!!
The rapper has spent the last week promoting Party on social media, and also debuted his new music video late Friday night to millions of views on Vevo and elsewhere, but it apparently hasn’t translated to happiness for the artist, who sounded heated on IG when he blasted his fans — and “non-lyrical rappers” — over the single!
Ch-ch-check out the screenshots of the now-deleted rant, in full, here:
And Breezy wasn’t done, since he continued the rant after the IG scroll (below):
In case you can’t quite make out all of it, here’s Breezy calling out his fans and actively sabotaging his own work by, well, not exactly being appreciative of the support he is receiving (below):
“Take ya head out y’all a** and support the only artist left with a vision and dedication to his fans. I Aint GONE KEEP BUSTING MY A** FOR IT TO BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED BY F*CKN***AS IN SOCIETY! IM ON MY GORILLA SH*T! … I’m passionate about my sh*t and you can name one n***a that directs his own sh*t/spend money on my projects out my pocket!!! … Y’all better wake up following these non lyrical rappers and scared a** internet thugs! #NOMOREFAKESH*T. Put yo money where ya mouth is!!!! Simple as that!!! ( NO ARROGANCE, I JUST KNOW WHAT IM WORTH) you should to!”
What do U think, Perezcious readers?!
Let us know in the comments (below)!!!
Move over, Kim Kardashian versus Taylor Swift.
There's a new feud in Hollywood, and this one has come out with guns blazing.
Literally, according to one of the participants.
Chris Brown says he did not hold a gun to Baylee Curran's head. Baylee Curran says he did. Who do you believe? View Poll »
On Tuesday morning, Baylee Curran paid a visit to Chris Brown's house.
This much does not appear to be in dispute.
She spent time with a friend in Brown's hot tub and then went inside the mansion.
This also appears to be agreed upon by both parties.
But then the stories diverge, with Curran claiming she tried to get a close look at a diamond necklace, only for Brown to flip the eff out.
Like, REALLY flip out.
The former beauty pageant winner told authorities and then various media outlets that Brown pulled a gun on her and demanded she leave his home.
Curran obeyed, called 911 and caused a standoff to take place for the next 14 hours after police arrived on the scene and Brown refused to let cops into his house.
At one point, he reportedly dropped a bag full of guns and drugs out the window. Yet he still remained inside.
After a lot of back and forth, along with some crazy Chris Brown videos, authorities obtained a search warrant and finally arrested Brown.
He was taken into custody on the felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon.
A few hours later, Brown was released on $250,000 bail and his attorney has since gone on his own media tour, telling everyone who will listen that his client is innocent.
Through this same attorney, Brown has denied all allegations against him.
Heck, he's even released a new song!
Curran, meanwhile, has spoken to TMZ, Extra and E! News, making the most of her time in the spotlight and swearing that Brown really did stick a weapon on her face.
She says she feared for her life and his hand was on the trigger.
"I really do understand [why people think I'm doing it for publicity]...I don't understand why he's the victim now," Curran told E!, adding:
"Obviously he has a lot of support, a lot of fans who are going to back him up. I'm just some random girl that wants to be in the limelight.
"Although if I wanted the limelight in fame, I wouldn't have done it this way."
In the end, this comes down to a case of He Said/She Said.
(Brown also thinks it comes down to a lawyer who has a personal beef with him.)
That's why we've posted the poll at the top of this article. That's why we want to know what YOU think.
Do you assume Chris Brown is guilty, due to his past with Rihanna and his clear temper problem?
Do you think Curran is simply seeking attention with this accusation?
There aren't many other ways to interpret the situation here, right?
Either Brown is telling the truth or Curran is telling the truth.
Scroll up and let your voice be heard: Do you believe Chris Brown or Baylee Curran?
The inevitable has happened; Chris Brown has been arrested for assault with a deadly weapon following the insane events of this morning.
According to officials, Brown pulled a gun on a guest at his home early Tuesday morning after an argument, allegedly over some jewelry.
The woman, Baylee Curran (below), filed a police report against the troubled R&B singer, and the cops followed up, obtaining a warrant.
Incredibly, things got even weirder from there.
While he was holed up in his residence, Chris hurled bags of guns and drugs at the cops in a dramatic (even by his standards) standoff.
Seriously. All of that happened! Today.
At that point, it was only a brief matter of time until police officials arrested the singer, who will be taken down to the station for processing.
It's a place he knows well at this point.
TMZ, which broke the story earlier, says that some friends of Brown's were hanging out him when a couple of uninvited guests rolled up.
Curran got into an argument with Chris and was told to leave, allegedly at gunpoint. Bailey called the police, who went over to investigate.
After a few hours of being stonewalled, officers called SWAT for back-up and demanded to see if Brown had the gun Curran had described.
Chris refused to allow them in.
The 27-year-old did dump a duffel bag full of weapons and drugs at the cops' feet, however, taunting law enforcement officials as he did so.
"Come and get me," the deeply disturbed star screamed, aware that they had a warrant and seemingly unaware of the consequences.
For her part, Bailey Curran says she's hung out Chris Brown in the past and that he had been perfectly nice to her, but not this time.
Curran says she and a friend went over to his crib, chilled outside in the hot tub and went back inside, which is when all hell broke loose.
After seeing a member of Chris' crew show off a piece of jewelry, Curran went to get a closer look, only to have the dude totally freak.
Chris then flipped the f--k out as well.
Screaming at Baylee to “get the f--k out” of his house, Brown then allegedly pulled out a piece and pointed it in her direction.
Curran tried to do just that, but says Brown’s friends tried to take her phone and make her sign a non-disclosure agreement.
She refused, and left with her friend, unharmed; Brown, she believes, was likely under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
Naturally, Chris denied he did anything and posted a profane rant against the police, who can "suck a fart out of my ass."
For all he cares. Yes, that is a direct quote.
There you have it, people. At least for now.
We caution that this story is still developing, details are still unclear and yes, Team Breezy, he is innocent until proven guilty.
We know. He is entitled to and will receive due process and the best legal defense money can buy. But this much is clear:
He is a very, very troubled individual.
The VMAs aren't like other award shows.
But unlike when someone you met on Tinder tells you they're not like other girls/guys, in this case, the claim is legit.
You never know what might happen at the VMAs.
Kanye might interrupt someone's acceptance speech.
Nicki Minaj might call out Miley Cyrus.
Kanye might interrupt everyone's acceptance speeches.
You really never know.
In fact, the only thing that's certain is: there will be some amazing performances.
Check out the gallery below to relive some of the most unforgettable musical moments from 32 years of the VMAs.

When you hear the name Chris Brown, what comes to mind?
Girlfriend beater is the natural first thing. Relentless douchebag is another.
I know I'm not the only one.
But evidently, the judge in Brown's custody battle with Nia Guzman doesn't see it that way, or doesn't think it matters, because the rapper just won a major victory in the fight for daughter Royalty.
Guzman had asked the courts to restrict Brown's custody of the child, claiming that her ex was unfit to care for her, reports TMZ.
Brown's ex alleged that his drug use and gang affiliations would put Royalty in danger, and wanted to enforce strict supervision when the toddler was with Brown.
Guzman also requested that the courts reduce the amount of contact Brown would have with Royalty, who turns two this month.
The verdict? Denied.
Brown and Guzman will continue to share custody of Royalty, and he gets to see her 12 days a month unsupervised.
The former model is also asking to increase her child support from $2,500 to nearly $16,000 a month, but we still don't know where the ruling on that stands.
While Brown continually shows complete and utter disrespect for women, he appeared to be protective of his daughter earlier this week.
Guzman posted a photo to Instagram of Royalty posing in a tutu during dance class, and Brown deemed it most inappropriate.
(The idea that Chris Brown feels justified in calling anything inappropriate still blows our minds.)
"It's crazy to me that a parent would OK dressing our daughter like she 16," Brown wrote in the comments section. "I ain't cool wit that. She is 2!!!!"
Floored that Brown would actually slut-shame his own daughter for her attire, Guzman fired back.
"If anybody thinks something is wrong with a baby... mad at the world in dance class... in her TUTU... U need to go pray! #Namaste," Guzman wrote.
Let's pray the judge made the right decision.
Chris Brown has been accused of punching a woman in the face.
According to TMZ, which broke this story, the controversial singer and the alleged victim were in attendance early Saturday morning at a party inside Brown’s suite at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas.
The woman, Liziane Gutierrez, has told authorities that she snuck her cellphone into the gathering and snapped a photo of Brown.
But the singer caught Gutierrez doing so, screamed at her and reportedly hit her once in the right eye.
Gutierrez says she left the party immediately and called the cops a few hours later. She was never taken to a hospital.
Police are investigating the allegation, although a rep for the artist tells TMZ that the woman's claims are "undeniably untrue."
Brown, of course, infamously beat up Rihanna back in 2009.
He never faced jail time for the incident and he is known for having a short fuse.
We're not saying he committed this act or anything. We're just saying that little about Brown would surprise us at this point.
However, Brown learned that he is the father of a little girl named Royalty last year and has vowed ever since to clean up his act, to set a good example for his child.
We're not sure why he's therefore hanging out with Scott Disick, but whatever. The two are supposedly sober buddies.
We'll update this latest Chris Brown story and accusation when more news breaks.
The singer, 26, made his affection for daughter Royalty known by including the 16-month-old on the cover of his new album, which shares the little girl’s moniker.
In the cover photo, which Brown debuted on Instagram Friday, the shirtless rapper is seen holding the little girl close to his chest.
“#ROYALTY ALBUM COVER,” Brown wrote on the photo sharing site.
Royalty is Brown’s daughter with Nia Guzman. In September, the rapper was granted joint-custody of the tiny tot after a dramatic custody battle.
The court decided that Royalty will use Brown’s last name and split her time between her mother and father. Brown will spend 12 days per month with the girl, and will have to pay $2,500 a month in child support along with covering Royalty’s schooling, health insurance, medical bills and nannies, TMZ initially reported.
Earlier today, we reported that Chris Brown and Nia Guzman would face off in court to determine who would receive custody of their 1-year-old daughter, Royalty.
It turns out, we were only half right. Nia showed up in court, and Chris was a no-show.
But don't worry, he was still received the 50/50 joint custody decision he was hoping for, because the world is a terrible place and you can do whatever you want if you're rich.
In fairnedd, Nia was swinging for the fences and asking that Chris receive only supervised visitation rights.
The judge wasn't having it, and not only did he rule that Chris and Nia would share custody, he also decided that Nia will continue to receive $2,500/month in child support (She was requesting $15,000.) and must cease talking trash about Chris online.
Yes, Chris somehow raised Johnny Cochran and Robert Kardashian from the dead, because that is quite the victory for a guy who couldn't even be bothered to show up for court.
You might be thinking that Chris couldn't attend because he was busy touring, and you would be half right.
He performed in Dallas last night - and the hearing was three hours away in Houston today.
But don't worry, Chris has finally made the trip. Royalty will be heading home with him this afternoon. And by "home," we mean to his next tour stop in Houston.
Now, one of the victims is going after the singer, saying the violent act was all his fault!
Paul Briley filed a lawsuit against the musician, claiming he was hurt in the shooting because the artist didn't have enough security at the club.
Paul claims that he has permanent injuries from the incident, and that Chris should have beefed up on security, since his shows have gotten violent in the past.
Ummmmm. We don't really see how this is Chris' fault. What happened at this nightclub was a terrible tragedy, but it should have been the venue staff's job -- not Chris' bodyguards -- to make sure no one was wielding weapons.
But what do U think, Perezcious readers?

In light of the recent blowup over her bikini pic, Karrueche Tran has just about had it with Chris Brown's possessiveness and his crew's behavior.
If you missed this recent Karrueche Tran bikini pic ...
- It resulted in one of Chris' posse issuing a death threat to Marques Houston, who publicly stated his support for Tran's booty.
Houston received a photo of two automatic guns.
"Ni**as sho no how to disrespect, I don't care if they not still together," wrote Brown's goon, implicitly (or incoherently) stating to step off or be offed.
Kae thinks it's time for Breezy, and his friends, to get the f--k over it, saying, "I'm bored and tried of this situation. I don't get it because I'm single."
"I thought we have all matured and moved on."
Apparently she forgot who she's dealing with.
Karrueche dumped Chris Brown after she learned he fathered a child, Royalty, with Nia Guzman and didn't think to mention this for over a year.
She found out the same time we did. Awkward.
Noting that "Chris has been seen with multiple women since the breakup," Tran says, "I don't want anything to do with any violence or negativity."
Karrueche also says that beyond the fact that Brown and his crew are hypocritical, unstable a-- clowns ... she Marques are just friends, so there.
The R&B star has been radio silent since the death threat, though he did give an interview in which he bragged about having a #1 hit while in jail.
It's been five months since Karrueche Tran dumped Chris Brown after learning that he'd fathered a child with another woman, but life with Breezy is like life in the mob:
Every time you think you're out he pulls you back in. Also, there are guns and it's terrifying.
Case in point, Karrueche posted an innocent bikini pic on Instagram and it somehow set off a whole mess involving death threats and assault weapons.
Allow us to explain:
R&B singer Marques Houston appreciated the beauty of Karrueche's booty and decided to pay her a compliment on the above photo:
"Dizayum look at all that booty," Houston wrote. "Can't even see your face cuz that booty in the way."
Clearly, Houston is the Lord Byron of our times, but one member of Brown's crew was unable to appreciate his poetic ode to dat ass.
The unidentified member of Team Breezy posted a photo of two semi-automatic weapons, with a caption reading, "N--gas sho no how to disrespect, I don't care if they not still together #MH"
The post (which has since been deleted by Instagram admins) was a clear threat to Houston, and one that he should probably take seriously, considering Brown's gang ties.
Back in May, Brown threatened Tyson Beckford after the actor posted a photo of himself hanging out with Karrueche on Instagram.
So yeah, it definitely looks like Chris doesn't plan on making it easy for Karrueche to start dating again.
The good news is, if he keeps threatening people online (or having his goons do it), he'll wind up in prison, and she won't have to worry about him!
Chris Brown recently revealed 25 fun facts about himself to Us Weekly, including some very interesting revelations about life, love and parenting.
The primary takeaways from the magazine's feature on the R&B star?
- Trying to figure out what goes on in his head is useless;
- In many ways he is a walking, talking contradiction;
- He may not know the meaning of certain words.
There are some nice ones, like "I bought my mom a $1 million dollar house when I was 15 years old" and "I love dancing with my daughter Royalty."
Chris also owns 14 Burger Kings, although he doesn't eat beef, directs all his own music videos, got his first tattoo at 13, and so on and so forth.
Brown was kind enough to reveal 25 facts about himself that most people don't know, and by "kind," we mean "inconsiderate and hurtful."
But then it just got weird.
"I’m the only singer who has been incarcerated and had a No. 1 record at the same time," he reveals, as though this were a feather in his cap.
(The song was "Loyal.")
Oh, and "When I was 6, I witnessed a relative attempt suicide." He left out the fact that he lost his virginity at age 8, but dude's childhood explains a lot.
We're not saying Breezy isn't responsible for his many misdeeds, but upbringing plays a huge role. Then he gets even more deep. And disturbed.
"I paint monsters that are mirror images of people’s negative views of me," he adds. "I smile a lot because this world doesn’t allow for people to cry."
Finally, for his very last fact on Us Weekly's "25 Things" feature, Chris delivers the coup de grace: "I think the best thing God created was a woman."
Comment rendered unnecessary, but if he's capable of doing the things he does to the finest thing God can create, that sort of sums up his psyche.
Good thing he also reveals he speaks with a pastor and a therapist on a regular basis, because their services are clearly needed and then some.
This is so cute!

Awww!!! For as much family drama as has gone on with him and Guzman, at least it's clear to see that Royalty is extremely loved.

Chris Brown has gone ahead and bashed Nia Guzman.
No, not in the face with his fists. Even if this is Chris Brown we're talking about here.
But the artist went on a Twitter rant Thursday evening against the mother of his only child, implying that Guzman is taking advantage of Brown’s wealth and fame.
"Some men my age run from their responsibility as fathers," Brown wrote. "I embrace mine. Just sucks that some females use children as meal tickets."
Without referencing Guzman by name, and without specifying the basis behind his beef, Brown added:
"Using a child as leverage is never ok. The highest praise to the men who actually want their kids."
Earlier this month, meanwhile, Guzman said little Royalty was not safe around her dad, likely sparking some major anger within Brown.
Not that it takes much in that regard.
Brown learned he was a father months after Royalty's July 2014 birth.
Reports claim he is supporting Guzman with a $2,500 monthly stipend, though Guzman has actually demanded $15,000 per month instead.
"A lot has changed in my life, a lot of mistakes, a lot of lessons learned. The best thing, I'm most thankful for is my daughter," Brown - who fathered Royalty while he was dating then-girlfriend Karrueche Tran - said at the 2015 BET Awards.
"At the end of the day, love is love."
Chris Brown's baby mama Nia Guzman believes their daughter Royalty is not safe when she's alone with him and wants a judge to intervene.
So much for working this custody thing out amicably.
Reports that Nia feels Royalty is not safe with Chris are not new, but it's worse than we thought, as she is now getting the legal system involved.
Guzman wants the courts to guarantee that Chris only sees Royalty, who recently turned one, when someone else is around to monitor them.
We imagine this is not going to go over well.
Nia Guzman filed the legal documents for supervised visitation; Chris has filed his own papers to establish paternity of the girl, born last year.
Once he does so, the singer can legally fight for joint custody of his daughter, but the courts have not ruled on his application as of this report.
For her part, Guzman wants full custody since she believes Chris Brown is just too irresponsible to care for another human being on his own.
She may not make the most terrible point.
Royalty and Chris have enjoyed some nice father-daughter bonding, for sure, but given his track record and the people he hangs out with?!
Guzman believes he and his friends all have substance abuse issues, and are generally bad news (Brown's home getting robbed by "insiders").
Chris believes this is just her angling for more child support, which he had been providing this whole time with no involvement from a judge.
Today’s Chris Brown update. Good news: Has not beat any women. Bad news (at least for him): Still trapped in the Philippines. The government disapproved of him skipping out on a New Year’s Eve gig last year. The promoters got an order to restrict Brown from leaving the country. It’s pretty awesome. Whatever it takes to keep him out of America.
Brown went onto Instagram and filmed a couple of hostage videos in his hotel room. One has him on his hands and knees, hands clasped in prayer, pleading “Please, please let us leave.” Then he adds a backflip because that’s just what Chris Brown gonna do.
He filmed another video showing how he’d go through customs and did some sort of pose/dance move.
Of course, all his ‘yes’ men laughed like it was the funniest thing they’d ever seen. They should get Brown’s entourage to leave the country and then see how much fun Brown would have. Get used to eating adobo, Chris.
Click through some of the more surprising feuds in recent Hollywood history.
Why do these famous folks not get along? For many different reasons...
1. Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift
2. Amber Rose vs. Khloe Kardashian
3. Selena Gomez vs. Lorde
4. Seth Rogen vs. Nancy Grace
5. Kathy Griffin vs. Demi Lovato
6. Lady Gaga vs. Perez Hilton
R. Kelly’s trapped in a box and Chris Brown’s trapped in the Philippines. What’s our diplomatic relations with the country? Whatever it is, as long as they keep him, let’s kick those relations up a notch. Maybe make them a favored nation or something. Does someone know what ‘favored nation’ means? I pulled that out of my ass. Take it away, TMZ:
Brown played a show in the country Tuesday night, but when he tried to leave Wednesday morning for his next show in Hong Kong … he was blocked from doing so by the Philippine Department of Justice, reports the Philippines News Agency.
The issue at hand … Brown was allegedly supposed to play a show last New Year’s Eve, but never showed. The promoters of that gig were granted an order to bar Brown from leaving the country in order to get him to pay back money they say they are owed.
Good, hope he forgets to pay his hotel bill and they keep him there longer. In the Philippines, you skip out on a bill and they stop you from ever leaving their country. In LA, you turn someone’s face into ground meat and they lift their heads up and say, “Waaaait. This might be a crime.”
Brown’s gonna be awesome at leading the next Philippines viral prisoner dance.
