Rihanna and Chris Brown celebrated their buzzed-about Grammy PDA-fest by hitting up a Hollywood club last night, and apparently smoking up a storm!

The obviously-fully-reconciled-and-dating-duo dropped by Supperclub for a private party ... one in which the entire place was filled with pot smoke.

Rihanna and Chris Brown Smoking

We don't know what they were smoking, of course, but both have made their fondness for marijuana clear ... and there's no way that club allows cigarettes.

They were then driving away from the club with Rihanna in the passenger seat at around 3:20 a.m. No paparazzi-related car crash reported this time.

Chris Brown and Rihanna didn't perform together at the 2013 Grammys last night. Nor did they walk the red carpet as a couple, each arriving separately.

Yet the R&B stars may have been the night's top story.

Chris Brown and Rihanna Back Together

The singers spent the entire night cozying up to each other in the audience, as CBS cameras frequently went to the controversial couple for reaction shots.

It was a very public display of affection and a signal to the world that Chris Brown and Rihanna are back together, no matter what you might think of it.

As expected, viewer reactions were mixed, and heated.

Richard Marx of all people zinged Chris Brown and the Grammys on Twitter a few hours ago, and we have to say, the man makes a valid, amusing point.

Marx and Brown

Earlier this week, a report surfaced that producers of the annual musical extravaganza insisted that stars not wear revealing clothes Sunday night.

In response, Marx dropped this gem: "'Risque' clothing banned at Grammys but guys who beat up women? Come ooonnn downnnnn.... #goodcallgrammys"

It would be a reunion that Miranda Lambert has A LOT to say about.

Four years after Chris Brown pummeled then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the 2009 Grammy Awards, the singer wants to perform with his lady love at this year's event.

Future Mr. & Mrs. Chris Brown

"Chris wants to perform with Rihanna at the Grammys to show the world they are back together," a source said of his dream duet. "He doesn't care what the haters say."

"He wants to give the viewers an over the top performance with Rihanna."

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.

Sherri Shepherd is on Team Breezy.

The View host has been vocal in defense of Chris Brown before, so it's no surprise that she stood up for the star in the wake of this week's Grammy lovefest backlash.

All Brown did was show up at the award show, perform and win. No controversy at all. Yet his mere presence at the event after his 2009 attack on Rihanna upset many.

While Shepherd criticized female fans who Tweet about how they'd let Chris beat them all night (among other things), Shepherd defended Brown from criticism.

He may even be a role model, she says. Why?

"There may be a child in a situation of going through abuse that Chris Brown has gone through. His mother was abused right in front of his very eyes six years before this happened to Rihanna. He used to wet his pants from the fear," Shepherd says.

"He was a victim! He became an offender. He did what the courts told him to do. He went to 52 weeks, a year of domestic prevention counseling."

That's all true, and she makes a strong case. But on the flip side, critics will point to the (perceived) utter lack of responsibility Brown has taken for his actions.

Behind-the-scenes blowups, arrogance and a lack of remorse (real or otherwise) contribute to the lack of forgiveness in people's eyes. Not heartlessness.

What do you think? Is Chris Brown a role model?

Chris Brown managed to stir up some controversy once again at the 2012 Grammy Awards ... even if all the singer did was show up, perform and win.

Some stars, including Miranda Lambert, wondered why the Best R&B Album winner / convicted felon was featured on not one but two performances.

On Monday, the country superstar tweeted "Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl ... Not cool that we act like that didn't happen."

  • Miranda Lambert at Grammys

"He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put in his place. Not at the Grammys." That's a reference to Lambert's 2007 hit "Gunpowder and Lead."

The lyrics to that song describe a woman preparing to kill her abusive husband when he gets out of jail. "His fist is big but my gun's bigger," she sings.

Lambert isn't the only celeb who questioned Brown's Grammy presence. "Chris Brown ... (bites tongue) have we forgiven him?" Michelle Branch asked.

Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet posted, after watching Brown's Grammy performance, "Are Chris Brown's mom and dad CBS and Grammy Brown?"

"Looks like all is forgiven (with) Chris Brown," Sherri Shepherd tweeted. "That's all I'll say." As of right now, Chris has not responded to these Tweets.

"Team Breezy we have come such along way and I'm so appreciative of you guys!!!! No matter what anyone says.... WE MADE IT!!" was all he wrote.

Chris infamously assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the 2009 Grammys, an incident some feel should have kept him from this year's show.

Your take: Did the Grammys show Chris too much love?

Chris Brown returned to the Grammy Awards for the first time in three years Sunday night, notching a win for Best R&B album and putting on a spirited live performance.

Three years after assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the Grammys, Brown (who was convicted of felony assault) took that Staples Center stage.

The 22-year-old won over the crowd with a glow-in-the-dark rendition of "Turn Up the Music" and "Beautiful People." Take a look at the singer's effort below ...

There were no innuendos or screen cuts to ex-flame Rihanna. Chris Brown simply finished his songs, stood triumphantly and saluted the crowd before taking a bow.

Breezy - as Brown is nicknamed - made the night an even bigger success when he went on to win his first ever Grammy Award, for Best R&B Album for F.A.M.E.

"People who make mistakes and learn from them are ROLE MODELS too. Im just happy to inspire growth and positivity, #TEAMBREEZYdidit" Brown tweeted.

The haters and the skeptics remain in large quantities, but if his actions continue to match such words, he'll be on his way to a great career comeback.

Chris Brown is planning a crazy performance for the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, according to reports. The star is up for three Grammys - Best R & B Album, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song - at the annual music extravaganza.

“Chris has been rehearsing non-stop,” a source close to the singer said. “He wants to give the audience and his fans an over top the performance. Chris has put a lot of pressure on himself to deliver, and he will deliver, he always does."

He won't be doing interviews, though ... until 2013 or later.

Brown on Today

It was only three years ago that Brown was arrested for felony battery on his then girlfriend, Rihanna, on the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

"Chris is hopeful that his performance will close that chapter on his life," says the source. "He will be bringing his mom to the awards ceremony, she is his biggest fan, and he has told her he is dedicating his performance to her."

"Chris has grown tremendously as a person, and an artist from that time in his life. He's complied with all terms of his probation. He has been a model probationer, but more importantly, Chris accepted responsibility for what he did."

Chris Brown will perform at the Grammy Awards next month, E! reports. It will be his first appearance at the annual show since 2009, when ... you know.

The singer, whose career has rebounded nicely despite some memorable flare-ups, is up for three awards this year, so his appearance isn't too surprising.

Plans for his performance are still being worked out, so details are lacking at the moment. Meanwhile, his ex Rihanna will perform with Coldplay.

Breezy Live

Chris Brown and Rihanna have been the subject of great speculation lately, most recently after they partied together (but separately) in W. Hollywood.

The two are said to be on good terms now, and even hooking up ... but they kept their distance last week. Brown was there with GF Karrueche Tran.

The Grammy Awards will be hosted by NCIS: LA star LL Cool J and telecast live on CBS from Los Angeles' Staples Center on Sunday, February 12.

Also set to perform are Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson, Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars, Paul McCartney, the Band Perry, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift and more.
