Poor Justin Bieber has been having something of a rough patch these days. Despite his rabid and fervent army of Beliebers, he’s been getting into more and more skirmishes with the paparazzi, and is-get this, you guys—coming off just a little bit like a spoiled, out of touch, and entitled rich kid.

When Chris Brown isn’t busy viciously beating and biting Rihanna for looking at his phone, or destroying a green room after an interviewer had the audacity to ask him about the beating, or getting into a parking garage slapfight with Frank Ocean over a parking space, or allegedly skipping out on his community service for Rihanna’s beating, or comparing himself to Jesus on Twitter, he’s taking Drake to court over a fight they had at a New York City nightclub.

Last week we heard news that some activists in Sweden were plastering pictures with Rihanna‘s beatup face all around Stockholm. Their goal was to prevent Chris Brown from performing in their town. This week, Rihanna and Chris Brown’s newest single, titled “Nobody’s Business” (of course!) leaked online. We wonder how those activists feel about the track, which we have for you down below. Also, Dave Grohl got named the keynote speaker for next year’s SXSW. And a new Kurt Cobain documentary in the works. All that and more below.

This week, Thom Yorke‘s side project Atoms For Peace released a new and complicated single titled “Default.” The band also announced the tentative release date for their debut album.

Proving once again that he’s simply the classiest guy in show business, Chris Brown took time out of his busy schedule trashing green rooms, taking no personal responsibility for domestic assault, and basically taking a leak on any and all forms of good taste in order to drop a some freestyle rhymes on top of a remix of Kanye West’s “Theraflu”—and apparently publicly insulted Rihanna, the woman he viciously assaulted in 2009.

Along with a lot of other people (mostly all the sane people on planet Earth), comic actor Seth Rogen apparently does not care much for rapper Chris Brown and his famous, girlfriend-assaulting, green-room destroying, tantrum-throwing temper. Nor does he seem to look highly upon the Grammys for continuing to celebrate and award Brown, despite his odious behavior. And Rogen let them both have it through a series of raunchy jokes while hosting the Independent Spirit Awards last weekend.

It’s been a slow week for the music industry, but still, we at BeatCrave managed to scrape up some worthy news from the depths of the internet. This week, Chris Brown is in the news again, not for his collaboration with ex-girlfriend Rihanna, but for stealing a woman’s phone. Adele also made headlines, and history, on the Billboard 200; and President Obama sang a tune at a recent fundraiser. All that and more, below.
