Today in music news, Chris Brown is feeling mighty isolated since the only person in the world he thinks he can relate to has been dead for almost 20 years, Shirley Manson cusses out her fans, Nicki Minaj accuses Steven Tyler of racism, Rihanna brushes off 777 tour criticism, and more. Chris Brown Has Taken His Act to Instagram Chris Brown had an existential moment on Instagram on Tuesday, when he posted a shot of Tupac Shakur flipping the bird and wrote, "That awkward moment when the only person u can relate to in the world is dead."
Brown's probably feeling more isolated than usual this week as he's facing yet another round of bad press, this time sparked by the misogynistic rant he directed at a female comedy writer who made a joke at his expense. But instead of getting self-reflective, Brown's aligned himself with a hip-hop legend: No one but the greatest understands what he's going through, see!
Nicki Minaj and Steven Tyler have more in common than you might think: They're both outspoken, love sparkly things, and have more experience with designer weaves than pretty much every other American. But sadly, these two are definitely not bonding over their hairpieces.
Minaj flew one of her signature Twitter tantrums on Monday night after Tyler gave an interview to MTV in which he opined that the current crew of American Idol judges is less nurturing than last season's.
