R&B star Chris Brown's reunion with ex-girlfriend Rihanna continues to take shape with new reports claiming he not only attended the singer's birthday this week but asked select people to sign confidentiality agreements.
According to reports, Chris Breezy wanted to keep his appearance at RiRi's party on the low.
Chris Brown was so paranoid about keeping his attendance at Rihanna's birthday party a big fat secret -- he actually tried to FORCE partygoers to sign confidentiality agreements ... TMZ has learned. Sources tell us, Chris refused to enter the private party Monday night at the famous Hearst Mansion in Beverly Hills until everyone signed an NDA -- sending his henchmen in beforehand to gather every partygoer's signature. We're told although they didn't get EVERYONE to sign -- Chris eventually walked in ... and spent a huge chunk of the night nuzzling up against Rihanna. According to sources, the two got real intimate -- sitting next to each other, talking, and holding hands ... all perfectly legal ever since the restraining order was lifted. Chris' rep tells TMZ, confidentiality agreements were distributed only to workers at the party and anyone who was caught videotaping/snapping a pic of CB. (TMZ)
Coincidentally, reports of RiRi and Brown reuniting on a remix to a song called "Birthday Cake" have emerged.
It's one of the most-talked about songs on Rihanna's Talk That Talk, and it's barely a minute long. Now, "Birthday Cake" -- 78 titillating seconds of school bells, handclaps and engines gunning -- is set to get a full-length reboot. But according to co-producers Da Internz, the featured guest on the remix will be more than just icing. "We got the Rihanna 'Birthday Cake' coming out in a week," a bespectacled Kosine told MTV News on the red carpet of the Pepsi-sponsored ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Brunch, held over the Grammy weekend. "It's gonna be crazy," his production partner, Tuo, said shaking his head. And the feature on there is gonna shock the world," Kosine chimed. (MTV)
The duo's speculated collaboration has already been confirmed by inside sources.
Recently, the song's co-producers, Da Internz, hinted to MTV News, that "the feature on [the remix] is gonna shock the world." They didn't exaggerate. Your girl Info confirmed with two independent sources that Rihanna has Chris Brown featured on the song. He recorded both a singing verse, and a rap verse. (We'll see if both of those verses make the final song.) (Miss Info TV)
Brown recently received backlash for performing at last weekend's Grammy Awards three years following his publcized domestic dispute with Rihanna.
New Yorker music critic Sasha Frere-Jones called Brown's return "one of the Grammys' weirdest choices ever," and cited R&B singer Drake as the more deserving star in the genre to celebrate. In an op-ed, Valerie Strauss for The Washington Post said that while people deserve second chances, "That doesn't mean they deserve a chance to strut around the Grammy stage a few years after being convicted of felony assault." Jeffrey Goldberg for The Atlantic tweeted: "I don't look for the Grammys for moral clarity, but, really? Do the words 'felony assault' mean anything at all?" Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich defended the show's backing of Brown on "CBS This Morning" on Monday. He said that he was "kind of rooting" for Brown. "I just believe people deserve a second chance," said Ehrlich. "The year he had this year, really brought him back into the public. He really deserved a second chance." (Music MSN)
