Rihanna who? Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran shared a passionate, sunset embrace on Monday ... and she made sure everyone saw it on Twitter, too.

The singer and aspiring model, who have been together about five months, appear to be going strong. "Head over heels," she wrote beneath the pic.

In this intimate, romantic shot, Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown are seen kissing lovingly, with idyllic backdrop of the beach at sunset behind them:

No response to this social media territory-marking from Rihanna, who may or may not have been with Tran earlier this year via Facebook and Twitter.

In a March 3 TwitPic, Rihanna took what some people interpreted as a racist shot at Tran, who is half-Vietnamese, writing "Ima make u my bitch."

The pic was a bag of rice cakes dressed up in gold earrings and black shades.

This followed rumors that Rihanna and Chris Brown, who recently collaborated on two remixes together, had been secretly hooking up for over a year.

Tran's response? A Tweet directed to no one in particular, but clearly in reference to Rih, saying, "I'm Angeline [sic], you're Jen. C'mon you see where Brad is at."

It's completely unclear how much Rihanna cares, but Karrueche's latest Twitter salvo leaves little doubt that Chris Brown is hers ... for now. Congrats?

Chris Brown has released a new track, "Til I Die," from his forthcoming album. A fast-paced mix of techno and R&B, he teams up with Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean!

“Ratchet, we act hood, but I’m gettin’ money with these white folk,” raps Chris Brown over the Danja production, boasting of cross-cultural appeal, or something.

The singer's fifth studio album, Fortune, is due out on Friday, May 4, the same day as his birthday! He will be 23 going on 3. Here's his latest collaboration:

Rihanna, in the new issue of Elle, has a message for all haters giving her a hard time about collaborating with Chris Brown again: She could give a flying ...

Yeah. Despite a shocking attack suffered at the hands of her then-boyfriend, Rihanna recorded new music - two remixes - with Brown earlier this year.

The backlash came hard and fast. But she does not care.

“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it," she said of the negative reaction to working with Chris.

"People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person."

"I’m still going to do what I want to do.”

Anyone at all surprised? Didn't think so.

Regarding the breakup with Chris and the media scrutiny that followed his arrest three years ago, Rihanna says it was terrible ... and yet empowering.

This is worse than that Chris Brown superhero cartoon.

A Watkinsville, Ga., steakhouse is feeling serious heat after promoting its "black and bleu" ribeye sandwich as being inspired by Chris Brown's beatdown of Rihanna.

We kid not, they really promoted the thing that way.

Chops & Hops put up a notice last week on the eatery's Facebook and Twitter pages announcing the newly-created sandwich, available for one day only.

Burger Chris-Rih

A heavy dose of ribeye topped with blue cheese, sliced tomato, "silver Lamborghini" onions and shredded romaine. The restaurant's posting said:

"@chrisbrown, @rihanna and us teamed up for an award winning sandwich ... Chris won't beat you up for eating this unless your name starts with a R and ends with A."

Mmmyeah. Shockingly, some customers weren't fans.

Considering Rihanna was assaulted in a Lamborghini, to the point where she sustained felony-worthy black and blue bruises, probably not the best PR stunt.

Not that Richard Miley is apologizing. On the contrary!

Whether he's hijacking phones, posing for pics taken by Karrueche Tran, teaming up with Rihanna or collaborating with Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown is everywhere.

A new track from Minaj's highly-anticipated album, Pink Friday: Roman Uploaded, has leaked, featuring Brown on backing vocals. It's called "Right By My Side."

Minaj sings in the chorus, "I'm not living life / If you're not right by my side."

She also raps over the bridge in typical fashion, "Man the sh!t that we be fighting over irrelevant/But I don't remember though, I probably hella bent."

The track drops following the "Starships" singer's release of her 19-track album listing featuring Lil Wayne, Drake, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross and Brown.

“Right By My Side” is Nicki's third single from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, following “Starships” and "Stupid Hoe." What do you think of the effort?

Chris Brown’s girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, has taken to the Twitterverse to send out a nice, subtle message that the R&B singer belongs to her. TO HER!

Also belonging to her? Some cute puppies!

“Basquiat & Bruno

Chris Brown, Dogs

It's easy to interpret this as a statement that it's a Karrueche Tran, not Rihanna, who's up close and personal with him, taking photos with dogs and the like.

Karrueche’s tweet came after a series of alarming tweets earlier in the week in which that Tran reportedly received death threats from some Rihanna fans.

“Sitting in the house cuz I’m too scared to go out,” she tweeted about those threats. “Sometimes you just got to make the best out of a negative situation.”

By riling them up even more by posting pics of Chris with her dogs?

In any event, there's nothing really to this story, just conjecture ... read into the picture above - and Chris Brown and Rihanna's remixes - however you like.

When Rihanna tapped her abusive ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, to join her on a sexually explicit remix of "Birthday Cake" last month, the music world was shocked.

Chatting with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, she spoke about the reasons behind that remix and their other collaboration (on Brown's "Turn Up the Music").

"I reached out to him about doing 'Birthday Cake' because [he was] the only person that really made sense to do the record, just as a musician," Rih said.

"Despite everything else, that was gonna be the person."

"You know, I thought about rappers, [but] the hottest R&B artist right now is Chris Brown. So I wanted him on the track," she explained matter-of-factly.

In turn, she agreed to guest on his own remix, she said:

"It was a tradeoff. Two records - one for my fans, one for his fans. That way, our fans could come together. There shouldn't be a divide. It's music and it's innocent."

Brown violently assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009, but the two have rekindled at least a friendship since that point, with rumors of more.

He attended her birthday party last month, and there's been talk of the pair secretly hooking up despite his ongoing relationship with girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

The adventures of Chris Brown are given the superhero treatment in a new animated viral video. A regular caped crusader, the singer dispatches of criminal miscreants across the land, using some of his trademark moves and quotes. It's a sight to behold.

Some of the dialogue is taken directly from Chris' Twitter post after his Grammy win, as well as that pesky police report, giving it that much more authenticity.

This is NOT a superhero you want to mess with, clearly:

Amid a never-ending firestorm of controversy, Chris Brown was spotted leaving Tru Nightclub in Hollywood last night with girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

They look happy. Guess there's no trouble in paradise ... at least not yet.

Karrueche Tran and Rihanna, Chris' ex-girlfriend and recent collaborator, are said to be engaged in a war of words, Facebook messages and Tweets.

In case there's any doubt where his heart is (at least last night):

Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown

Karrueche reportedly said earlier this week on Facebook, in what was seen by many as a jab at Rihanna, "I'm Angelina, you're Jennifer. C'mon you see where Brad at."

It's starting to look like the aspiring model may be right ... and may be morphing into Rihanna, with her newly blonde hair and sharpened fake nails. Just saying.

There's also this random Rihanna topless pic Tweeted yesterday. Which has nothing to do with this story, in all honesty, but still felt worth noting.

Reportedly embroiled in an online feud with Karrueche Tran, Chris Brown's new girlfriend, Rihanna is making more headlines today for her use of Twitter.

That's because the singer has posted a provocative photo of herself on the network, posing last night in nothing but bracelets and shorts. See for yourself here:

Rihanna Topless Twit Pic

The sexy shot is seemingly a promotion for her upcoming music video, which Rihanna is currently shooting and which will be in honor of a track on her latest album, "Where Have You Been?"

"Where have you been all my life?!" RiRi Tweeted along with the pic.

But perhaps it's also a response to her own father, Ronald Fenty, who told Heat magazine recently that Rihanna was a "little fat the last time I saw her."

Fenty added that he's cool with his daughter rekindling a relationship, professional or otherwise, with the man who beat her bloody just a couple years ago, saying:

"Chris is a nice guy and everybody's entitled to make mistakes in their life. God knows how many I've made. She's her own woman now."
