Rihanna and Chris Brown Set to Perform at the Grammys
1 year ago
Just three years since fateful incident that nearly ruined Brown's career
Chris Brown and Rihanna are both set to perform at the Grammy Awards a source has told the Associated Press. It was at the Grammys three years ago where the pair’s careers took a turn; both did not appear at the awards show as was planned. Instead, gruesome photos soon revealed the starlet had been badly beaten -- and Chris Brown was wanted for arrest.
Brown, 22, has since resurrected his career and reputation. His latest album F.A.M.E. is nominated for three Grammys, including best R&B album.
Reports the AP:
A judge eased a restraining order last February after an attorney for Rihanna said she didn't object to removing the stay-away provisions. The former order required Brown to stay 50 yards away from 23-year-old Rihanna, but the restriction was reduced to 10 yards if they were at a music industry event.
Brown, 22, has been nominated for Grammys in five of the last six years, though he has never picked up the top prize in music. His song "Look at Me Now," which features Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes, is nominated for best rap song and best rap performance.
Rihanna is the owner of four Grammys, three with Jay-Z. She alone won a Grammy last year for her No. 1 smash, "Only Girl (In the World)" for best dance recording. In addition to album of the year, her fifth CD "Loud" is up for best pop vocal album. Rihanna is also nominated twice for best rap/sung collaboration for another No.1 jam -- the Drake-assisted "What's My Name?" -- and for her guest appearance on Kanye West's "All of the Lights."
The Grammys will air on Sunday, Feb. 12.
