Chris Brown Gets GRILLED UP For "Dum English" Art Exhibition + Ice T PREMIERES "The Art Of Rap" Documentary

Chris Brown showed off his limited-edition collectible toys he created with American artist Ron English yesterday at Toy Tokyo in NYC. See pics of Chris at the exhibition inside and find out about Ice T's new documentary Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap.

Prior to his toy exhibition, Chris Brown held a viewing of some of his street art at Opera Gallery in New York City recently.

DJ Khaled dropped in to check out the artwork and pose for pics.

June Ambrose posed with Jonathan Cheben at the event and also admired the work.

 

Later.....

Chris was seen arriving at the Toy Tokyo store in the East Village of NYC yesterday for his exhibit called "Dum English."  

The exhibit featured Chris' street art as well as a line of collectible toys he created with American artist Ron English.

Chris rocked a grill for the event.  Hate these things.

He later tweeted some fun pics from the exhibition.

 

And in movie news.........

Ice T and wife CoCo hosted a red carpet premiere event for his new rap documentary Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap last night at Alice Tully Hall in NYC.  He revealed why he made the documentary--which he first showed at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival--to TIME saying, 

I wanted to start directing. I’ve been in film for a while and that’s something I want to do down the road, and I said, ‘Maybe this should be my first project.’ I was looking at the state of hip hop and I was like, ‘I don’t feel people respect it as much as they should.’ So I went out and called all my friends. I said, ‘I want to do interviews with you, but I’m going to talk to you about not the money, the cars, the jewelry, the beef. I want to talk about the craft.’ They were like, ‘Nobody ever asks us those questions.’

Treach of Naughty By Nature attended the event.

Rapper Fabolous supported Ice T's movie.

Actor Leon is aging like a fine wine.  We're just sayin'...

And Busta Rhymes was there with Rah Digga.  Good to see the hip hop community supporting hip education of sorts.  The documentary hits select theaters this Friday.

It is impossible to fall out

It is impossible to fall out of love. Love is such a powerful emotion, that once it envelops you it does not depart. True love is eternal. If you think that you were once in love, but fell out of it, then it wasn't love you were in. There are no 'exit' signs in love, there is only an 'on' ramp. (( M_i_x_e_d_M_a_t_c_h_i_n_g. c_0_m )) Lots of my friends found their lovers through the se'rvice. You may have a try... ;)

The best thing about these

The best thing about these two nitwits is that they are spending their money as fast as they make it. Since both have “posses”, I’m sure they are pissing their money away with nothing to show for it. They better enjoy it while they can. Neither one will amount to much in the long run.

Brown was the first to call

Brown was the first to call it a night at 3:30 a.m. Rihanna left closer to 4.

Soon after that, a second

Soon after that, a second source tells us RiRi and company started dancing on top of the banquettes. As if on cue, those in Brown’s party did the same, directly facing Rihanna’s group, in a dance-off. Despite the “You Got Served”-style theatrics, our sources say neither Brown nor Rihanna approached each other or had any kind of face-to-face interaction.

About 45 minutes later,

About 45 minutes later, Brown’s ex-girlfriend Rihanna entered the same club “with her large posse of socialites,” including comedian Aziz Ansari. The source says the singer-turned-actress, who recently appeared in the flick “Battleship,” was dressed in a pinup-style white dress, black sunglasses and Converse sneakers. The Barbadian beauty’s group took a table directly across from Brown’s entourage. That’s when things got interesting. Our source said Brown could be seen “admiring Rihanna from his table across” the room. Her beauty apparently made him thirsty, because he “started the party with shots of Patron” tequila and Ace of Spades Champagne.

… The couple [Chris and Karreuche Tran] didn’t stick together the entire evening, however. According to a second source, Brown showed up at Avenue nightclub in Chelsea around 1:30 a.m. with “a bunch of friends [and] a couple of girls,” although Tran wasn’t one of them.

Chris Brown can't quite catch his fantasy in the Colin Tilley-directed, "Don't Wake Me Up." The singer travels through a lush secret garden maze, a city high above the clouds, and a dusty desert all for his dream girl. Who you after, Breezy?

This is why TeamBreezy loves

This is why TeamBreezy loves Chris Brown so much. Much of the media and negative people do not get to see this side that we love because they dont WANT to see it and be proven wrong. Chris is genuine and sweet, and has used his music and art to express himself, and I love that. It’s not always about interviews and giving people exclusives on juicy stories. Sometimes you have to look within a person, (and beyond what people tell you) to get the true story. LOVE Chris Brown and cant wait for FORTUNE on July 3rd!

Glad to read such positivity

Glad to read such positivity when it comes to Chris Breezy! He seems like a fun, down to earth, TALENTED young man! Everyone makes mistakes and at the end of the day, he is human! I am a huge fan! He’s a wonderful artistic, creative person! Love you all the way from Houston, Texas Chris!!! Keep making Team Breezy proud. I also love the way he shouts out his fans for every award, interview, etc. That is LOVE right there!

Glad some of youyou finally

Glad some of youyou finally met him, and see why so many of us love him. What you talk about is how we always have seen Chris – before the fight and even since. He’s shown low moments in the last years, but he seems much like he’s back to his ole sweet self. And know – there’s nothing as great as experiencing a Chris Brown performance. Guy croons and dancesand loves his audience better than anyone

Ron said that when he first

Ron said that when he first met Chris he had absolutely no idea of who Chris was. He designed Chris’ striking album cover for F.A.M.E., but he joked that he got fame but not fortune. Well, Chris may have both now but I still feel like he’s trying to prove himself creatively with his art. I don’t think he feels for many reasons like he has “arrived” yet. But that’s okay, it’s clearly keeping him real.

Ron English explained to me

Ron English explained to me that the reason that he and Chris had decided to create astronaut dolls was because they represented the experience of being a celebrity. “You’re shot up into the stratosphere by fame, it kind of takes you up out of this world, but then when you get there, you’re alone, just like an astronaut in space,” he said. “You’re isolated.” Hmm! I got that. Chris was expressing his feelings – he was gifted but also isolated by his celebrity status. His paintings on the other hand were exuberant and poked fun at himself. In the painting “Too Many Parties,” Chris’ heavy hangover is clear in his red head, glazed over eyes and headache.

When I told Chris that I

When I told Chris that I loved his art – which I did – he thanked me more than once for coming. And when I told him that it was terrific that he was donating his art to raise money for children’s programs, he touched his heart and thanked me again. Humble isn’t a word, that I usually use for celebrities that I’ve met in person, but Chris was disarmingly genuine.

Chris gave him a gigantic hug. Ron told me that the two have created a limited edition line of collectible toys, including colorful astronaut dolls, that were on display at the gallery. Chris Brown had been a huge Ron English fan apparently, to the extent that he actually had images from Ron’s art tattooed on his body.

His girlfriend Karrueche Tran

His girlfriend Karrueche Tran was also there, and she is tiny in person and was wearing adorable — but equally tiny — navy patterned hot pants. And I can tell you that neither gave off an iota of attitude. Chris’ vibe was completely positive and humble. But he was most excited when he saw and hugged his collaborator, established American contemporary artist Ron English, 46, who loves to mashup popular cultural imagery — like superheroes — in his work.

First of all, he was

First of all, he was completely on time greeting his guests at the 8 p.m. opening, and unlike any number of A-listers that I’ve observed at events over the years, he actually looked happy and excited to be there. Chris had donated several of his colorful, expressive painted canvases for the evening. All of the proceeds were going to the Symphonic Love Foundation, a charity Chris founded to fund music and arts programs for children. The paintings were selling from $2,500 to $10,000. The $10,000 canvas called “Hello Kitty,” was snapped up immediately. I was impressed that Chris had no bodyguards or intrusive handlers in sight and throughout the evening mingled, chatted and cordially posed with every fan who asked for a photo.
