No Butts About It: 30 Celebrity Smokers

No Butts About It: 30 Celebrity Smokers
Everyone knows smoking is bad, but many celebrities can't help lighting up. Maybe they have a tough time quitting the habit, or perhaps they smoke to keep off the weight. A cheeseburger is worse than a cigarette, right?

It may surprise you that some of these stars smoke - others you won't find so shocking.

Keira Knightley is a smoker, and it's probably part of the reason why she's so thin. She's also been accused of having an eating disorder. Early in 2014 she admitted that her grandmother and great-grandmother had anorexia but denied suffering from the disease herself. Either way, both h...

Barbra Streisand’s 'Partners' Beats Chris Brown for Top Spot on Billboard 200

Barbra Streisand’s 'Partners' Beats Chris Brown for Top Spot on
Few 72-year olds can do it like Barbra Streisand. Who just landed another #1 album – Barbra Streisand! Duets album Partners not only debuted at #1, but did so with larger than expected numbers (196,000 copies). It also made history giving Streisand at least one #1 album in the past six decades. Go Barbra – it’s your birthday… well not really!

Chris Brown settles for the #2 spot behind Streisand, as X sells 146,000 copies. While Brown might be disappointed he didn’t score his third number one album, X performed better its first week than Fortune, which sold 135,000 copies. Maybe even ...

Review: After Many Delays Chris Brown's 'X' Is Stronger Than Expected

September 18th, 2014 3:30pm EDT
Chris Brown - X
What’s a deadly disease that damages a musician’s career? The correct answer is the delayed album. Sure, controversy does the same (Chris Brown might know something about that), but the delayed album can be truly devastating. Brown’s sixth studio album X has been delayed several times. That said, even at its most imperfect, X is better than previous LP Fortune. Not only was Fortune filled with curse words, it also incited curse words…

"X" opens the effort mysteriously, gradually evolving into electro-R&B. It sports repetition and gimmickry commonplace to contemporary R&B and pop. Eve...

Lecrae Anomaly
It’s rare that the Christian rapper debuts atop the Billboard 200. How rare – well it never happens – like “never ever.” Anyways, Lecrae made it happen this week as Anomaly outperformed early prognostications and sold 88,000 copies. Lecrae was able to hold off a strong second week from Maroon 5’s V (80,000 copies, #2) as well as what was thought to be a tight race with Jhené Aiko (Souled Out sold 70,000 copies, good for #3).

While Lecrae’s debut is celebratory, it is also another week where no albums moved 100,000 copies. Throw in the fact that besides Lecrae and Jhené Aiko, the top ...

Chris Brown's Assault Case Heads To Trial After Second Plea Deal Crumbles

Chris Brown was offered a plea deal in his assault case that would make sure he didn't see the inside of a jail cell, but he turned it down over a technicality.

The plea deal was pretty sweet for Brown; it would credit him for the time he's already spent in jail with no probation and he would plead guilty to simple assault. However, the two legal teams couldn't come to a consensus on the events of the evening. Brown would have to say what happened that night and what he did while pleading guilty.
