Supafest adds guy who beat the shit out of Rihanna to their 2012 line-up

The fantastic Missy Elliott has been added to the Supafest line-up.

Already featuring Ice Cube, P. Diddy and Lupe Fiasco (amongst others), Elliott will be joined by Big Sean and Naughty by Nature at the touring event. Oh and some dick called Chris Brown, who according to the LAPD, in 2009:

“...was driving a vehicle with Robyn F. [Rihanna] as the front passenger on an unknown street in Los Angeles. Robyn F. picked up Brown’s cellular phone and observed a three-page text message from a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with.

"A verbal argument ensued and Brown pulled the vehicle over on an unknown street, reached over Robyn F. with his right hand, opened the car door and attempted to force her out. Brown was unable to force Robyn F. out of the vehicle because she was wearing a seat belt. When he could not force her to exit, he took his right hand and shoved her head against he passenger window of the vehicle, causing an approximate one-inch raised circular contusion.

“Robyn F. turned to face Brown and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand. He then drove away in the vehicle and continued to punch her in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand. The assault caused Robyn F.’s mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle.

“Brown looked at Robyn F. and stated, ‘I’m going to beat the shit out of you when we get home! You wait and see!’"

He then:

“...resumed punching Robyn F. and she interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face. She then bent over at the waist, placing her elbows and face near her lap in [an] attempt to protect her face and head from the barrage of punches being levied upon her by Brown.

“Brown continued to punch Robyn F. on her left arm and hand, causing her to suffer a contusion on her left triceps (sic) that was approximately two inches in diameter and numerous contusions on her left hand."

He:

“...pulled Robyn F. close to him and bit her on her left ear. She was able to feel the vehicle swerving from right to left as Brown sped away. He stopped the vehicle in front of 333 North June Street and Robyn F. turned off the car, removed the key from the ignition and sat on it.

“Brown did not know what she did with the key and began punching her in the face and arms. He then placed her in a head lock positioning the front of her throat between his bicep and forearm. Brown began applying pressure to Robyn F.’s left and right carotid arteries, causing her to be unable to breathe and she began to lose consciousness.

“She reached up with her left hand and began attempting to gouge his eyes in an attempt to free herself. Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers and then released her. While Brown continued to punch her, she turned around and placed her back against the passenger door. She brought her knees to her chest, placed her feet against Brown’s body and began pushing him away. Brown continued to punch her on the legs and feet, causing several contusions.

“Robyn F. began screaming for help and Brown exited the vehicle and walked away. A resident in the neighborhood heard Robyn F.’s plea for help and called 911, causing a police response. An investigation was conducted and Robyn F. was issued a Domestic Violence Emergency Protective Order.”

Afterwards, Rihanna looked like this. Brown never went to jail.

Meaning you're totally free to go see him play his shitty music this April.

    Considering all this, let's not forget that he appears to believe that getting a Grammy should silence his critics.

    Good work keeping his announcement in perspective, Marcus. It's done the rounds but if this critique of Brown's Grammy invite is worth the read: http://hellogiggles.com/im-not-okay-with-chris-brown-performing-at-the-grammys-and-im-not-sure-why-you-are

    I wish Chris Brown would beat up the editor of this article, Chris Brown is undeniably a talented artist, if the vine employed talented writers, we might actually be able to read news-worthy journalism as opposed to trash talk.

    I couldn't help noticing Jesse's sterling contribution to the comments section of this article! The amusing thing about your comment, dearest Jesse, is that our esteemed editor Marcus's article never once actually claimed that Chris Brown was untalented. Why, perceptive listeners like yourself are probably plenty aware that there's a number of talented people who make shitty music! Instead, Marcus was merely pointing out, shall we say, that Chris Brown's behaviour leaves some room for improvement! As it is, I think that many journalists would agree that it probably is newsworthy that a seemingly-reputable festival would book such a felonious villain.

    Hey, JesseDonovan - If the Editor was a woman, he probably would. Otherwise, not so brave... Besides, don't we have laws against letting ''undesirables'' into our country?

    Chris Brown's music and everything else is now 500% better after the Rihanna incident. Let it go! We all make mistakes, he learnt the hard way and paid the price for it. Even Chris Browns writing skills are better than yours Marcus. Quit writing trash and riding a years old wave. You deserve an industry award for being a champion wanker, Marcus! Congrats to you!
