Nicki Minaj recently commented on the feud between Chris Brown and Drake, her Young Money label-mate, by claiming that she "doesn't approve" of the beef.

The now-infamous Chris Brown-Drake fight that broke out last month at an NYC club left many injured and got the establishment shut down in the aftermath.

All over Rihanna too, allegedly. Speaking to the BBC, Nicki weighed in:

  • Chris Brown Fashion
  • Nicki Minaj Fashion
  • Drake, Glasses

"I don't approve of talented people doing things that aren't conducive to an amazing career. I spoke to Drake, and I told him from the bottom of my heart how I felt."

"I'm like, 'Baby, you are a superstar, and I need you to realize that."

Speaking to Tim Westwood on BBC Radio 1 Xtra, Minaj revealed that, although she thought Drake was innocent, he still needed to be careful of his reputation."

"He did nothing wrong, of course. Rumors are rumous, and that there's what it is. Sometimes, you just need to go to bed. Go to the hotel and have an early nap."

"At the end of the day, there's nothing wrong with that."

Words to live by, Drizzy. Words to live by.

Whose side are you on in the feud?

Following Sunday night's BET Awards, rumors were running rampant that Chris Brown was arrested backstage for illegally possessing a firearm.

Speculation surfaced that the R&B star was going to great lengths to protecting himself against possible retaliation from Drake and Meek Mill.

In the wake of the Chris Brown-Drake fight last month, and given that we're dealing with Chris Brown in general, it didn't seem far fetched.

But it's not true.

Brown, who was among the BET Awards winners last night, was out and about celebrating last night, completely arrest- and controversy-free.

A rep for the singer also confirms there was no altercation of any kind Sunday.

Incidentally, Drake wasn't at the show, and Meek Mill, who was also involved in the NYC nightclub brawl, was not at the BET after party with Chris.

Consider the rumor debunked, and chalk it up to the crazy Twitterverse.

In other, less controversial Brown news, he Tweeted condolences to his ex this weekend after Rihanna's grandmother died. That was nice of him.

Chris Brown disses Drake on his new remix track following their nightclub brawl, but he's still got nothing but love when it comes to ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Rih is dealing with the death of her beloved grandmother, Ciara "Dolly" Brathwaite, in recent days, and has posted touching tweets and photos of her.

"Goodbye #grangranDOLLY get your beauty rest until I see you," she wrote.

Brathwaite died of cancer late last week, and in the wake of the passing of "Gran Gran Dolly", Brown posted a nice Tweet about Rihanna's grandma.

Rihanna, Grandmother

"Praying for family and the lost loved one. She was like my grandmother. Love you GRAN GRAN DOLLY! RIP," said the 23-year-old R&B star.

Brown's mom, Joyce Hawkins, shared similar sentiments.

"@rihanna ANGEL MAY GOD BE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY IN YOUR TIME OF SORROW. LOVE YOU ANGEL," Hawkins tweeted Saturday as well.

Clearly, Brown was once close to the singer and her family. Of course, Rihanna unfollowed Chris awhile back so it's unclear if she's seen this.

Maybe he can mention it at their next hotel rendezvous.

Whoever started the Chris Brown-Drake fight at a New York nightclub two weeks ago, the former is dissing the latter hard in a new remixed track, "I Don't Like."

In the remix, which also features The Game, Brown undeniably rips his adversary and references the W.i.P. nightclub brawl between their posses in June.

Here's the Drake diss song, with the lyrics below:

"Ah fu*k ni**a, that's that sh*t I don't like / They throwin' bottles, I'm throwin' models just 'cause I give a bi*ch long pipe," raps Team Breezy's idol.

"I be singin', he be singin', so it's on, fight / But hold up, I ain't give a ni**a no green light / This head up, my bread up, one on one, what you scared, bruh?"

"Matter fact, take care bruh, you a pu**y ni**a / My ni**a Tunechi, yeah that ni**a nice / Shout out to Nicki, man, that ass tight / Them eyebrows, man, them sh*ts is yikes."

"OVO, you overdosed, screamin' YOLO no, I live twice."

Take Care, of course, is the name of Drake's most recent album. Tunechi refers to Lil Wayne and Nicki to Nicki Minaj, whose ass is apparently tight.

Drake, your move bruh.

Chris Brown and Drake have been offered $1 million each to fight three rounds in a boxing ring in the name of charity, the New York Times reports.

What's more, promoter Damon Feldman is hoping to pay Rhianna, whose links to both stars are well documented, the same amount to be the ring girl.

“It’s more of a show than anything, and we can raise millions for charity,” Feldman said. “Instead of fighting in a bar, they could get paid to fight!"

"We would like to have Rihanna as a ring girl, as well, but if she doesn’t take our offer, we know she will be watching,” the prospective MC added.

The fight, if it happens, would take place at a ring in Las Vegas in August, he says. Proceeds would go towards a charity for battered women.

Feldman has already promoted celebrity fights featuring Jose Canseco, Michael Lohan, Rodney King, Hailey Glassman, Danny Bonaduce and others.

The now-infamous Chris Brown-Drake fight went down in a New York City nightclub June 14. The club, W.i.P., has since been shut down by NYC.

NBA star Tony Parker was among several people injured in the melee, which allegedly erupted because of bad blood over (what else) Rihanna.

Ever since Chris Brown violently beat up and subsequently broke up with Rihanna ... he's been romantically linked to Rihanna. It's an unusual situation.

Although he's been dating Karrueche Tran for some time, Chris can't avoid the Rihanna rumors, especially after their two recent collaborations.

This month's Chris Brown-Drake fight was allegedly over her, some reports say ... but is there anything really going on between Rih and Chris?

Every rumor of a reunion between them seems to be followed immediately by a Twitpic of Karrueche and Chris, so we'd say no. But it got us thinking ...

W.i.P. nightclub feels Tony Parker's lawsuit against them is baseless and that there is no way they could have predicted the melee that went down.

NBA star Parker filed a $20 million lawsuit this week, claiming the club is responsible for the Chris Brown-Drake fight in which he was injured.

Parker sustained a scratched retina from shards of glass flying after Brown, Drake, Meek Mill and threw down, requiring eye surgery as a result.

Tony says it's obvious "there was bad blood between Drake and Brown" (allegedly over Rihanna) and that W.i.P. staff should have known better.

Moreover, he says they fueled matters by selling their posses alcohol.

But sources close to the club, which has been shuttered, say Drake and Chris Brown are not prone to violence ... at least not toward other dudes.

The club feels the fight was out of its control, and as for the alleged bad blood, a source said, "Chris Brown and Drake are not Biggie and Tupac."

Parker also suggested that the club was way understaffed, which W.i.P. refutes, saying that 15 security guards were working the night in question.

So far, no charges have been filed related to the brawl, though the club was closed indefinitely and the case is still under investigation by the NYPD.

San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker is suing the Manhattan nightclub where a fight between Chris Brown and Drake broke out and led to mass chaos.

Why? Because the NBA star suffered a scratched retina when glass bottles and shards started flying during the melee, according to news reports.

The baller, who is expected to be fine in time for the Olympics but must wear a patch on the eye for several weeks, seeks $20 million in damages.

New York officials shut down W.i.P. nightclub in the aftermath.

Parker claims that the club nearly cost him his career by properly secure and oversee the premises in the lead-up to the violent brawl between Chris Brown, Drake, Meek Mill and entourages/security guys/friends of all three music stars.

Parker's lawsuit is not the first, nor the last to result from the night gone awry, in which numerous injuries were reported, some of them serious.

Drake alluded to the dustup during a concert in Long Island last weekend, while Meek Mill denies that there was any bad blood between any of them.

Drake's Young Money boss, Lil Wayne, is reportedly trying to help smooth things over as soon as possible. Yes ... Lil Wayne is the mediator.

Did Chris Brown and Rihanna hook up this week, behind his GF Karrueche Tran's back and just days after he was injured in a brawl with Drake's crew?

Reports surfaced earlier today that Chris, who's supposedly pined for Rihanna ever since ... well, you know, had finally won the "S&M" singer back.

The two recording artists had a secret hotel rendezvous ... allegedly.

Rihanna and Chris Brown: Did they reunite? Will they?

“Chris snuck in through the side door at the Ganesvort Hotel super late at night and went to Rihanna’s room,” said a source near said NYC hotel.

“They’re seeing each other. She’s just as obsessed with him.”

Hollyscoop, however, debunks any rumor of their hookup.

“Completely not true,” a rep for Chris told the site. “As we have said many, many times before, he is very happy with his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran."

For now, at least, it looks like there was no tryst, and the only involvement Rihanna and her ex have is her role in the Chris Brown-Drake fight.

Everybody hear about that? It was insane!

Lil Wayne is getting in the middle of Drake's beef with Chris Brown, though his goal is to end it amicably so all parties involved can keep making cash money.

Weezy and his peeps at Young Money, which reps Drake, have been quietly urging him to do what he can to put the feud to bed because it's bad for the biz.

Yes ... as violent and hardcore as the rap game cis, there is such a thing as bad PR, and Lil Wayne senses that stemming from the Chris Brown-Drake fight.

  • Cutie in Black

Sources say Drake has gotten calls from Weezy, Birdman, Mack Maine and others at Young Money, urging the rapper to extend an olive branch to Brown.

Since Brown appears on several tracks with YM members, they feel it's best to let bygones be bygones after the fight that got W.i.P. nightclub shut down.

Drake doesn't want to reach out to Chris, however, until he knows CB doesn't blame him for the melee that led to serious injuries and property damage.

Brown's lawyer has been saying that Drake was one of the aggressors, which the Canadian rapper denies, as does Meek Mill, the other rapper involved.

Lil Wayne has made it clear he's on Drake's side no matter what, but "making money matters most" and the bottom line trumps any personal grudge.

When Lil Wayne is the voice of reason, you know $h!t is outta hand.

Instigator or not, Drake best take heed, even if - to borrow one of our favorite Weeds quotes - thug means never having to say you're sorry.
