Tiger Woods can use all the help he can get when it comes to improving his post-Mistressgate public image, but he may want to give his latest defender a “Thanks, but no thanks!”
Although fallen R&B star Chris Brown has barely put his own backlash behind him since his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna, he spoke out to support the golfer in an interview with the Mojo in the Morning radio show.
“I think people always deserve a second chance,” Brown insisted. “Whatever (Tiger’s) personal life is — and I think this goes for me and him — his personal life is his personal life. Nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on somebody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them.”
So, in the interest of judgment-free futures, an eager Brown wished Woods the best.
“My hat is off to him — I support him,” the singer said. “I hope he gets back on the field and does his thing, ’cause he is the best at it.”

“If only it weren't for Susan Boyle!” the singer joked before getting serious about the “Britain’s Got Talent” star’s release in an excerpt posted to Contact Music. “I'm happy for her success, but that album is terrible. ‘Wild Horses’ is the one that made me laugh the hardest. I just died when I heard it, I was crying with laughter. It was the most horrendous, sacrilegious treatment of that song!”
What is it about Boyle’s rendition of the classic Rolling Stones ballad that bothers Lambert so much? He didn’t elaborate in the interview, and now it seems he may be prepared to distance himself from the comments completely.
Shortly after Lambert’s Boyle bashing surfaced, he tweeted, “Oh joy! MisQuoted again... Becoming quite funny actually,” without revealing just which quote he meant.

Given the tough economic times, comedian Joan Rivers takes exception with Victoria Beckham’s high-dollar, high-fashion lifestyle. “Victoria Beckham should get a life,” Rivers told Closer magazine. “I am not a fan of outrageous consumption. I think it is vulgar. And no one should flaunt that they have a hundred Hermes $12,000 bags. Not when people are starving.
