The 51st Grammy Awards just concluded where Ne-yo, Coldplay among others came as big winners
Rihanna and boyfriend Chris Brown did cancel their attendance to the 2009 Grammy Awards. There have been much talks that both have been embroiled in a car accident. On the other hand, Chris Brown turned himself down to the LAPD. It seems he was also allegedly accused in a "domestic violence" spat.
