Holy. Cow. We now have proof that Chris Brown and Rihanna are in contact:

Rihanna Topless, Blonde Haired

He wished her a Happy Birthday on Twitter and she said thank you! OMFG!

Right around midnight this morning, Brown took to his Twitter to write "HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN!" - Robyn Fenty being Rihanna's real name - to the birthday girl.

Rih, who was physically assaulted by Chris in 2009, but has since warmed up to the star again to some degree, responded "Thanks!" and re-tweeted the message.

Rih Tweet

No doubt about it, girl's friendly with her ex again.

While Chris attended her b-day bash last week, there's no proof of them together since his peeps slapped anyone with a camera with a confidentiality agreement.

He didn't want pics of him with her to get out, but evidently has no qualms about sending along a public Twitter birthday wish, and she has no problems responding.

The restraining order against Chris has been lifted, so this isn't shady at all.

The birthday message comes as rumors continue to swirl about the two collaborating on a remix for one of their new singles ... fittingly called "Birthday Cake."

Rihanna turns 24 today. Chris, who is still dating Karrueche Tran (and living with her, we're told) despite the Rihanna romance rumors, will be 23 in May.

Still, we ask: Should Rihanna and Chris get back together?

Rumors have been flying that Chris Brown and Rihanna are getting back together, however, dude is still dating Karrueche Tran, and it's apparently going well.

Sources close to Karrueche say that she is not perturbed by the rumors about Rihanna, because she is currently dating - and living with (!) Chris Brown.

Guess she would know better than a bunch of tabloids ...

Furthermore, after Brown made his not-so-secret appearance at Rihanna's birthday party, he whisked Karrueche off to Miami for a romantic Valentine's Day. Aww.

So all is well in paradise? Looks like it. Probably. Maybe.

A source tells Us Weekly that Karrueche knows that Chris Brown and Rihanna have hooked up (she thinks it happens at the studio), but is sanguine about it all.

She isn't going to throw away her meal ticket break up with her boyfriend over a few minor indiscretions, after all ... you gotta look at the big picture here.

So Us claims, anyway.

Karrueche Tran is an aspiring model, if anyone wondered/cared. One who does not care about his past, obviously. Miranda Lambert would not approve.

Miranda Lambert was an outspoken critic of last Sunday's Chris Brown Grammy lovefest, ripping CBS and the music extravaganza for Brown's prominent role.

She's still not over it, calling out the R&B star in concert this week.

Country star Lambert wondered aloud on Twitter why the convicted felon was featured on not one but two performances during the Grammy Awards.

"Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl," Miranda tweeted, adding "He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place."

Miranda Lambert, Chris Brown Sign

"Gunpowder and Lead" is her song about a woman preparing to kill her abusive husband. She performed it in concert Thursday - with a message for Brown.

Before singing, Lambert pulled a poster out of the audience reading "Take Notes Chris Brown." "Get a good picture now, put it on Twitter," she said.

"I’ve been in a world of hurt with Chris Brown fans ... but see, I have to speak my mind because where I come from beating up on a woman is never okay.”

As she sang, Lambert added "So that's why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun." The Amherst, Mass., crowd went wild:

Brown has come under heavy criticism for his response to the "haters" as much as for the infamous 2009 incident in what has become a never-ending story.

Should people just get over it and move on? Or is Miranda right in standing up against abusive men, and the Grammys? Choose a side in this feud:

Chris Brown was apparently on hand at Rihanna's birthday party to see her receive a cake shaped like a topless likeness of herself riding a giant spliff.

Now they're rumored to be collaborating on a remix of her song "Birthday Cake."

Seriously. New reports have been flying that Chris Brown, of all people, is the mystery collaborator on a soon-to-drop remix of Rihanna's quick-hit song.

Surprising, and probably disappointing for some of her fans, but not as absurd a concept as it once seemed, given that they've grown close again.

"They can say whatever, Ima do whatever, No pain is forever," Rihanna tweeted Friday morning, quoting her hit song "Hard." "YUP! YOU KNOW THIS."

Cryptic. Or just catchy. That song was good.

Neither side is commenting about the rumored collaboration, but a full-length version of Rihanna's minute-long track (above) has long been in the works.

"It's gonna be crazy," producing team Da Internz told MTV News last week regarding the tune. "And the feature on there is gonna shock the world."

Could that mean what we think it means?

The music video for Chris Brown‘s latest single "Turn Up The Music" has arrived, and in it, the 22-year-old R&B star not only sings the track, but directs as well!

Brown's debut behind the camera was co-directed with Godfrey Tabarez.

“Music is FREEDOM! The video is out!!!!” Chris wrote on his Twitter, luckily without any f-bombs for the haters. “Love you team breezy!!! #turnupthemusic.”

What do you think? Turn it up or turn it down? You decide:

“Turn Up the Music” is the lead single off the fifth studio album, Fortune, for Chris Brown, who is coming off a big Grammy win ... and even bigger controversy.

The album hits stores and iTunes March 16. Will you be buying?

Chris Brown was so paranoid about keeping his recent attendance at Rihanna's birthday party a secret, he tried to legally ensure it, according to reports.

TMZ says Breezy refused to enter the private party Monday at the famous Hearst Mansion in Beverly Hills until everyone signed an non-disclosure pact.

Chris' rep says confidentiality agreements were distributed only to workers at the party and anyone caught videotaping/snapping Chris Brown photos.

Chris Brown Sings

Although they didn't get EVERYONE to sign, Chris eventually walked in and spent a huge chunk of the night nuzzling up against former GF Rihanna.

According to sources, the two were quite cozy, sitting next to each other, talking, holding hands ... all perfectly legal with the restraining order lifted.

As for the rest of the party, it was jam-packed with celebs including Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and Chris Martin (no Gwyneth Paltrow though, sadly).

Rihanna's birthday cake, incidentally? What looks to be giant joint, with a small Rihanna made out of icing, riding that thang like a horse. In a thong. Topless.

Miley Cyrus would be so proud ...

We're not kidding. This report may be false, but according to Us Weekly, Chris Brown used that vile line on a girl he was attempting to pick up recently.

The alleged quote: ""Can I get your number? I promise I won't beat you!"

Brown's rep said: "I'd be surprised if Chris said something that stupid."

We would have to agree. If he did say that, it would defy comprehension ... even more than things Chris normally does like tell haters to f--k off on Twitter.

Chris Brown Planking

Brown, who pleaded guilty in 2009 to felony assault for hitting then-girlfriend Rihanna, reportedly used the line on an attractive brunette on February 10.

The setting was the Lasio Professional Hair Care suite Grammy gift lounge.

After he supposedly said it, a witness says, "He and his friends laughed about it, then one yelled, 'That's his new line!' Ugh! I wanted to throw up!"

It's unclear if the brunette accepted Chris' request.

We honestly don't believe this. Chris has big-time rage issues, and could do a lot better at taking responsibility, showing remorse and simply shutting up.

He seems to fly off the handle only when provoked, however, and such a brazen remark seems a tad uncharacteristic, even if Chris is far from perfect.

We can see him fuming at "haters," which is what seems to set him off every now and then, but not joking about beating girls to their faces.

Come on, Us. Chris has work to do, but spreading rumors like this is just as bad as his recent tirade. Legitimate criticism is one thing; slander another.

Apparently Rihanna isn't one of Chris Brown's haters.

The pop star, who turns 24 on February 20, threw a small early birthday party for herself Monday in L.A., celebrating at a private home a day after the Grammys.

The party, which was Caribbean themed, brought out 100 of RiRi's closest friends (for a "small" party) including Katy Perry, Bruno Mars ... and Chris Brown?

Oh yes. Sources at the bash tell Celebuzz that Chris Brown was indeed in attendance and that the two singers definitely appeared friendly at the shindig.

Guests at the soiree were said to be eating cake and drinking Red Bull well into the night and toasted the superstar with Armand de Brignac Brut Gold Champagne.

The report of Chris Brown's attendance - the latest in a series of stories about the two stars hanging out together of late - is sure to please his many loyal supporters.

After all, if they've buried the hatchet three years after Brown's attack on Rihanna, why shouldn't everyone else do the same? He doesn't help the cause, of course.

By lashing out at his critics in a profane Twitter rant - which even his mom is pissed at him about - he merely adds fuel to the fire and takes the focus off his music.

Will he ever keep his temper under control and take the high road? Should he have to? And what do you all think of Rihanna and Chris' friendship? Sound off below.

Chris Brown's mother, Joyce Hawkins, is reportedly livid about his post-Grammy Twitter rampage in which he told his haters to f--k off ... among other things.

The singer lashed out at critics who slammed the Grammys for honoring him during Sunday's awards show, and had bitter words for those bashing him.

"HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That's the ultimate F**K OFF!" The tweets from Brown's account said at the height of the rampage.

The Tweets have since been removed, and Brown is in damage control mode, with his camp saying he didn't even post that. Mom? Not buying it.

A Brown source says: "Chris didn't Tweet that, someone does his postings to Twitter and when he saw that he ordered it taken down immediately."

However, “Joyce is absolutely livid that those vile words and rants were posted on Chris' Twitter page. She isn't buying his excuse that he didn't post it."

"She has told him repeatedly that it is his Twitter, only he should be posting to it, period. She feels like people were just waiting for a negative reaction."

"She had begged Chris to just ignore it and now that he didn't listen, she is just beside herself that after such successful performance at the Grammys and winning the award, people are now talking about this Twitter controversy."

Come on, Chris Brown.Ohhhhh YEAH

The singer has, for reasons unknown, fired back at those who took aim at Grammy Awards producers for inviting him to perform at music’s big night on Sunday.

Brown did nothing at all controversial during the show, and has been a model citizen of late. It's understandably frustrating that people won't let him move on.

Outbursts like this make it impossible to, however, because they fuel the perception that he's a temperamental hothead who shows no remorse or respect:

C Brown Tweet

The R&B star performed twice and picked up a Best R&B Album prize, but many industry executives, fans and celebs felt he shouldn’t have been there at all.

The Grammy Awards were, of course the scene of his infamous attack on ex-girlfriend Rihanna, which landed him in court on assault charges three years ago.

Tuesday, he Tweeted: “Hate all u want becuz I got a Grammy now! That’s the ultimate f--k off! Watch my back as I walk away from all this negativity.”

Those remarks have since been deleted, but the negativity he seeks to walk away from has only been fostered by his own inability to calm the hell down.

Seriously. Just take a deep breath, pull yourself together and put the iPhone down. Think it through. Maybe then you'll deserve to be called a role model.
