Victory

Chris Brown isn't coming to Halifax! Cited as a personal and health related decision, Brown will NOT be performing in Halifax this year. Thanks to everyone who helped get our voices heard on this! People of Halifax, don't forget about the "Love Does" concert happening at The Company House on the 31st, where all the funds will go to women's shelters in the area. People who can't make that, you can always make (even small) donations to places like that in your own area. Again, thank you all so much. Loud voices can make changes

**Trigger Warning**

Chris Brown is as well known for his violent beating of his former girlfriend Rhianna and temper tantrums as for his musical career.  As a resident of Halifax, I believe it reflects poorly on our city to not only host such an artist, but to make him the headliner of this show. It says that as a city, we do not care for domestic abuse as long as you can write a catchy dance song. It shows we don't care if you almost kill someone because we will still put you on a stage and give you money because your singing and dancing career trumps that.

Please sign my petition and join with hundreds of us who find his headlining Energy Rush to be distasteful, callous and disrespectful to victims of domestic violence.

      Rihanna is planning to take legal action on Chris Brown

      Sandra Rose gathers that Rihanna is considering taking out a restraining order if her former lover Chris Brown doesn't stop dropping her name in interviews. The report reveals that although Chris and Rihanna have severed communication with each other since they broke up in May, Chris has remained undeterred in using Rihanna's name to promote his upcoming album.

      I do not really under stand this, This is very much unheard of for me, How terrible, to think that this abusive popular singer would actually hurt Rihanna, a popular singer as well and also, to think that they were formerly lovers, that's disgusting to me. He shouldn't be a singer anymore to be precise. this is all my opinion. you're not needed in the music industry anymore, Chris, you really aren't, so seriously, stop trying to be famous cause you aren't anymore. I'm sorry for saying this but I had to

      I feel that even though everybody makes mistakes it shows great strength when the majority understands certain issues and work with creating positive global change.. Even if the outcomes means having less money in their pockets.

      When you are of influence to others, in this case a younger crowd for the most part, your work and behaviours should reflect in constructive, positive and mature manners. This is how we roll in Canada. Enough of this junk. Show us the real deal with quality entertainments.

      Keep this women-beating piece of trash out of my country. His is a mistake than cannot be forgiven lightly and he ahs done nothing to prove that he has made any changes. Also the fact that a petition protecting this guy is on this website sickens me to no extent
