We all know that Chris Brown has a mean streak, but we had no idea he took his aggression out on strangers. According to E! News, the singer is being accused of assaulting a woman at a San Deigo nightclub on Saturday.
Twenty-four-year-old Deanna Gines called the police to report that Brown had pushed her after his performance at Heat Ultra Lounge. Gines claims that she fell to the ground and injured her knee, so badly that she may need to have surgery. The operational manager of the nightclub stated that he heard that the rapper had "moved someone out of the way" after his set and that "perhaps the incident is being blown out of proportion." In response to reports of the incident, Brown himself later tweeted, "I didn't do anything." That tweet was soon deleted.
This news comes in the wake of his "Don't Think They Know" music video, which has a strong message against gang violence. Still, it's not terribly shocking that Brown was violent in a club — this certinaly isn't the first time. His brawls with Drake and Frank Ocean have made headlines, and of course, we can't forget the infamous incident with his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
If Chris Brown is prosecuted for this recent accusation, he may well be penalized for violating his probation, a sentence he received for assaulting Rihanna. The singer's rep has yet to issue a statement.

“Hi my name is Rachel Berry and I’ll be auditioning for the role of… author."
Are you ready for some exciting news, Glee fans? Shining star Lea Michele has just announced the newest chapter in her picture perfect storybook of a life — she’s going to write a book! Oh yes, we can practically hear your squeals of delight.
The FOX actress took to her twitter Thursday morning to reveal that she’s “so excited” that she has signed a deal with Harmony Books. Her book — titled Brunette Ambition — is described as a part-memoir, part-"how-to" and part-style guide with plenty of behind-the-scenes perspective. The pages will chronicle Michele’s transition from a normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television.
Michele hopes that Brunette Ambition will offer practical advice and lessons for young women who are looking to follow in her nearly flawless footsteps. There wasn’t a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today.” The actress revealed in a statement .“But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm and hard work to make your dreams come true.”
This marks the fourth Glee star to snag a book deal since joining the musically inclined show — Jane Lynch, Chris Colfer and Jenna Ushkowitz have also made the transition from actor to author. However, something tells us that Michele’s book is going to be bigger than Rachel Berry’s collection of reindeer sweaters and penny loafers.
Brunette Ambition is set for publication in Spring of 2014. So far Michele has tackled Broadway, TV, movies and now the literary world — Rachel Berry would definitely be proud. Are you going to buy Michele's how-to book of wonderment? Sing your thoughts in the comments below!

Widening the thematic scope without sacrificing too much of the claustrophobia that made the original 1979 Alien universally spooky Prometheus takes the trophy for this summer's most adult-oriented blockbuster entertainment. The movie will leave your mouth agape for its entire runtime first with its majestic exploration of an alien planet and conjectures on the origins of the human race second with its gross-out body horror that leaves no spilled gut to the imagination. Thin characters feel more like pawns in Scott's sci-fi prequel but stunning visuals shocking turns and grand questions more than make up for the shallow ensemble. "Epic" comes in many forms. Prometheus sports all of them.
Based on their discovery of a series of cave drawings all sharing a similar painted design Elizabeth (Noomi Rapace) and Charlie (Logan Marshall-Green) are recruited by Weyland to head a mission to another planet one they believe holds the answers to the creation of life on Earth. Along for the journey are Vickers (Charlize Theron) the ruthless Weyland proxy Janek (Idris Elba) a blue collar captain a slew of faceless scientists and David (Michael Fassbender) HAL 9000-esque resident android who awakens the crew of spaceship Prometheus when they arrive to their destination. Immediately upon descent there's a discovery: a giant mound that's anything but natural. The crew immediately prepares to scope out the scene zipping up high-tech spacesuits jumping in futuristic humvees and heading out to the site. What they discover are the awe-inspiring creations of another race. What they bring back to the ship is what they realize may kill their own.
The first half of Prometheus could be easily mistaken for Steven Spielberg's Alien a sense of wonder glowing from every frame not too unlike Close Encounters. Scott takes full advantage of his fictional settings and imbues them with a reality that makes them even more tantalizing. He shoots the vistas of space and the alien planet like National Geographic porn and savors the interior moments on board the Prometheus full of hologram maps sleeping pods and do-it-yourself surgery modules with the same attention. Prometheus is beautiful shot in immersive 3D that never dampers Dariusz Wolski's sharp photography. Scott's direction seems less interested in the run-or-die scenario set up in the latter half of the film but the film maintains tension and mood from beginning to end. It all just gets a bit…bloodier.
Jon Spaihts' and Damon Lindelof's script doesn't do the performers any favors shuffling them to and fro between the ship and the alien construction without much room for development. Reveals are shoehorned in without much setup (one involving Theron's Vickers that's shockingly mishandled) but for the most part the ensemble is ready to chomp into the script's bigger picture conceits. Rapace is a physical performer capable of pulling off a grisly scene involving an alien some sharp objects and a painful procedure (sure to be the scene of the blockbuster season. Among the rest of the crew Fassbender's David stands out as the film's revelatory performance delivering a digestible ambiguity to his mechanical man that playfully toys with expectations from his first entrance. The creature effects in Prometheus will wow you but even Fassbender's smallest gesture can send the mind spinning. The power of his smile packs more of a punch than any facehugger.
Much like Lindelof's Lost Prometheus aims to explore the idea of asking questions and seeking answers and on Scott's scale it's a tremendous unexpected ride. A few ideas introduced to spur action fall to the way side in the logic department but with a clear mission and end point Prometheus works as a sweeping sci-fi that doesn't require choppy editing or endless explosions to keep us on the edge of our seats. Prometheus isn't too far off from the Alien xenomorphs: born from existing DNA of another creature the movie breaks out as its own beast. And it's wilder than ever.
