UK officials announced that they have barred Chris Brown from entering Great Britain for a concert due to his vicious 2009 attack on his former girlfriend.

"Team Rihanna," Britain's Home Office said in a statement. Just kidding, they didn't say that, though it was basically the same sentiment they expressed.

"We reserve the right to refuse entry to the U.K. to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offence. Public safety is one of our primary concerns," the office said.

"Each application to enter the U.K. is considered on its individual merits."

Chris Brown was apparently found to be merit-free.

"SORRY to all the fans in Europe!!! my tour is cancelled. Im pretty sure yall know. my entry was denied in your country. I love you. SORRY!!" Brown tweeted in a post subsequently deleted in favor of this official statement from his publicist:

"Due to issues surrounding his work visa, the Ireland and United Kingdom leg of Chris Brown's Keep Me Relevant Fan Appreciation Tour has been postponed."

"Chris looks forward to performing for his fans abroad in the near future and thanks them all for their continued support at this time."

Brown had been scheduled to perform in Glasgow, London and Manchester in the U.K., along with a stop in the Irish city of Cork. Not gonna happen.

The 21-year-old R&B star remains on trash detail as part of his five-year probationary sentence following his guilty plea in the Rihanna assault case.

Rihanna didn't have any visa woes for her UK tour dates this year. Just saying.

Chris Brown turned 21 less than a month ago and wasted little time learning how to party - you could say that he's been falling over himself to hit the clubs.

So much so that he literally fell off the couch in a NYC club.

“Chris was out at Greenhouse nightclub last night in New York City and got so wasted that he fell off the couch,” a club insider said. “He had to be picked up.”

Chris was drinking Ace of Spades champagne mixed with Patron tequila and hung out with rappers Lil Jon and Gucci Mane, which you know means trouble.

Before making it to Greenhouse around 2 a.m., Chris and his crew were over at Perfection strip club in Queens. “Girls were all over Chris,” a source said.

Girls were all over Chris. He was all over the floor. Literally.

“He wasn’t really too talkative and seemed pretty cocky and arrogant. He took off his shirt and danced in his tank top undershirt until the bar closed.”

Chris has received praise from the judge in his assault case for staying on top of his probation terms and completing 290 hours of hard labor to date.

Brown pummeled Rihanna absolutely senseless back in February 2009.

Last August, a probation order required Chris Brown to “abstain from all alcoholic beverages and from places where they are the chief item of sale.”

Lucky for Chris, the order has since been lifted and he is now 21.

Chris Brown's “Deuces” has just dropped. As in the video from Chris, protégé Tyga and Kevin McCall. You might even say Chris Brown dropped a deuce on fans.

The newly-released song is from a collaborative mixtape, Fan of a Fan, which is both artists’ dedication back to the fans (it came out online this past week).

As for the meaning of the title? “‘Deuces,’ it’s about you getting rid of this girl. You try to make it work, but you gotta move on,” Tyga explained to MTV.

“So you basically put up one finger, then another and say, ‘Deuces.’"

Sweet. Whatever the hell that means. Peep it and vote below ...

What do you think of Chris Brown's "Deuces" video?

A judge offered praise to Chris Brown this morning for adhering to the terms of the suspended sentence resulting from his brutal attack on Rihanna last year.

Basically, everything is going according to plan.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg said Brown is in good standing with the court and Chris continues to make progress in completing his community service and hard labor sentence, plus attending his domestic violence counseling.

In fact, the newly-minted 21-year-old has completed all but one of his required 52 anti-domestic-violence counseling sessions, and has served out 290 hours of hard labor, or roughly 36 of his required 180 days - in short, he's working hard.

The judge also praised him for making progress on the community service portion of his sentence, continuing with the progress made as of the star's last hearing. 

Brown, who's due back in court August 26, is expected to complete all his hours by October. Chris has several years of less stringent probation coming after that.

Criticize him all you like for what he did, but no one can accuse him of getting off easy, or attempting to shirk his end of the deal he struck to avoid prison time.

Cough, Lindsay Lohan.

Chris Brown turns 21 on this wonderful Cinco de Mayo.

We'd offer to buy him a margarita, but maybe a Miller Sharps would be a better move. Alcohol and someone already prone to violent, belligerent outbursts? Not a good mix.

Just kidding ... sort of.

With his latest album not selling as well as previous efforts, and Rihanna now in the arms of Matt Kemp, we hope Chris can reflect on his past mistakes on this special birthday and continus the process of turning over a new leaf.

Unless he's on highway trash pickup duty today. Then just do that.

All kidding aside, it's nice to see Chris channeling his energy into positive things like the 2010 Census these days. Fill it out and let your voice be heard!

Chris Brown is working overtime on cleanup duty.

That applies to both community service, where he literally cleans up roads, and image rehabilitation, where he's agreed to headline an all-star benefit.

Dubbed "Virginia Stand Up! A Call to Action," the event will take place May 15 at Virginia Commonwealth University and feature all-star performances.

The recently-released T-Pain, Keri Hilson (who has been linked to Chris romantically), Trey Songz and Ryan Leslie, will perform, along with host Brown.

More stars are expected to sign on in the coming days, with proceeds going to the Red Cross' Haitian relief efforts and the Central Virginia Food Bank.

"I wanted to find a way to contribute personally to the ongoing Haitian relief effort," said Brown, who's also spreading the word about the U.S. Census.

"I also wanted to support an organization that helps people in need right here in my home state," he added. "Everyone has to do their part."

That part extends beyond picking up garbage alongside I-95 ...

Chris Brown is working hard to clean up roads and reputations.

Chris Brown takes the U.S. Census very seriously.

The R&B singer is doing his part to get the word out, heading up a rally at Virginia Union University intended to inspire people to fulfill their civic duty.

Otherwise he will pummel you senseless. Just kidding. But all peeps are required by law to fill it out, the struggling-to-stay-relevant star told the crowd.

Brown addressed why he wanted to get involved: "This isn't like a career move for me per se. It's not like I'm promoting my album, records and stuff."

"It's more of me coming out being able to show kids and be what I am, a role model. I know a lot of kids look up to me." At least at one point ...

While Rihanna cheered on Matt Kemp in L.A., Brown insisted he wasn't at the rally simply as a means of taking attention off his previous walloping of her.

"Well, it does [help my image], but it's not about the image. It's about a positive cause," he said. "It's not for a charitable event so I can look good."

"It's not. It's a natural thing that I really wanted to do."

Brown admitted in an interview that he was confused at first: "I was unaware of it in the beginning too, I was like, 'I'm not too sure what the census is.'"

Fortunately, Have You Ever Beaten Your Girlfriend Senseless Over a Booty Call Text Message is not a question on it ... just name, address and stuff.

For whatever reason, Chris Brown and social media seem to breed hostility. Dude peaced out of Twitter last year after accusing Wal Mart of blackballing him.

He's since returned, but not without another minor flare-up. For some reason, he and Soulja Boy exchanged misspelled, sub-140 character barbs this week.

Boasting two-plus million followers, Soulja Boy wrote: "#ListenBitch add @ChrisBrown & @BowWow followers together u still aint half way f**kin wit me lol"

Snap.

Not one to let a little friendly competition slide without taking the gloves off and trying to kick some a$$, Chris Brown replied "@souljaboytellem yall funny… lol."

But then he continued:

Chris Brizzown

Random Twitter feuds are the best.

"@souljaboytellem and @bowwow what yall make in a show i make for an hour at an afterparty… jus sayin." Wait, who dragged poor Bow Wow into this?!

Soulja Boy then retaliated (and included Bow Wow once again) seemingly getting the last words: "#ListenBitch if my last tweet offended you then I won."

The Tweeting gauntlet was then thrown down: "lol @bowwow there you go. f**k bank accounts. f**k followers. let's see who new album sell the most 1st week."

That sound you hear is of IT BEING ON.

Soulja Boy has a new album out in July called The DeAndre Way, while Bow Wow has not yet set a release date for his latest effort. And as for Chris Brown?

He's begging fans to stay relevant. That says a lot.

Whose side are you on here?

Chris Brown really wants to stay relevant.

That much is obvious, but the fact that he's literally begging his fans to help that cause is pretty funny/sad. Brown used an audio message to spread the desperate plea.

Brown's message is available through SayNow.com, a website in which stars can record messages for fans ... of which he apparently has fewer die-hards than the old days.

In the message, the felony woman beater begs fans to help "bring me back," saying that he won't name names, but "a lot of radio stations aren't playing my records."

"They are not being that supportive and I wouldn't expect them to."

Very Studious

A studious Chris Brown hopes for radio redemption.

Brown goes on to say he's "a better guy now" ... but says "[My music] won't be possible if I'm not relevant on the radio ... I can't be an underground mix tape artist."

Chris' popularity has understandably taken a beating ever since he doled out a severe one to then-girlfriend Rihanna a year ago. Not the best move, image-wise.

His new album, Graffiti, is somewhat of a sales letdown.

We believe in second chances, sure, but calling out stores and stations for blackballing your album (true or not) isn't the way to go, Chris. It just makes you look petty.

One year after beating the crap out of Rihanna, Chris Brown has been rebuilding his image and career, belting out hits on Graffiti, attending Fashion Week, etc.

But the Rihanna case lingers. Brown will face an L.A. judge today to determine if he is doing enough to satisfy his probation on his felony assault conviction.

Judge Patricia Schnegg has been skeptical about the type of community service Brown has been performing in Virginia - and whether it's been true hard labor.

Chris' sentence actually called for hundreds of hours of community labor, not just service - meaning he has to be poundin' the pavement (not just Keri Hilson).

Smilin' Chris

Will Chris Brown be all smiles in a couple of hours?

Brown and his lawyer, Mark Geragos, will go before Schnegg today with a list showing Chris got plenty dirty performing community service on Virginia roads.

Hopefully for his sake, Mark makes a compelling case. Otherwise his relatively light sentence for an assault case could become a whole lot heavier in a hurry.

Stay tuned ...
