Rihanna's attorneys will now decide if it it's okay for Chris Brown to attend award shows and events that the former couple plans on attending.
Yesterday, Virginia Pop/R&B singer Chris and attorney asked a Los Angeles court judge to remove the restraining order against former girlfriend Rihanna during a progress report. The singer, who was arrested for brutally beating Rihanna in February, 2009, was seeking the order lifted because it reportedly prevented him from attending award shows, parties and public events, according to RadarOnline.com.
While Judge Patricia Schnegg did not remove the order, Chris Brown and legal staff are presently waiting Rihanna's attorneys to modify the order from "stay away" to "do not annoy."
Despite three Grammy Award nominations, Chris Brown is not expected to attend next month's premiere event.

The AMERICAN DREAM is a 30 minute animated film that shows you how you've been scammed by the most basic elements of our government system. All of us Americans strive for the American Dream, and this film shows you why your dream is getting farther and farther away. Do you know how your money is created? Or how banking works? Why did housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? Do you really know what the Federal Reserve System is and how it affects you every single day? THE AMERICAN DREAM takes an entertaining but hard hitting look at how the problems we have today are nothing new, and why leaders throughout our history have warned us and fought against the current type of financial system we have in America today. You will be challenged to investigate some very entrenched and powerful institutions in this nation, and hopefully encouraged to help get our nation back on track.
Buy the high quality video from the website,
The video creators understand that how the monetary system works can be very confusing to some and have done a brilliant job in explaining how the whole system is set up to keep you forever in debt. This is not what the original founding fathers of America had in mind.
Also, this is not just an American problem. It's the same scam in nearly all countries around the world

I was up at 3 am this morning in a chipper mood when this gem randomly plays on my itunes and I'm sure you all are thinking of the commercial with the car. But in retrospect this song is probably one of the underrated classics of the late 80's during the rise of the New Jack Swing era. Tony! Toni!Toné! have since broken up and mostly have had successful careers as session musicians and songwriters, while Raphael Saadiq went on to become one of the pioneers of the Neo-Soul movement.
Wireless phones, wireless internet, wireless routers... it seems that everyone and everything is going wireless. Don't get left behind.

The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them,
glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine. They heal.
They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or, sit in silence and hear a song that hasn’t been written?
Or, gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,
are the ones who do.

First it was Blackplanet. Then it was Hi5. Shortly after, Myspace came about. Now It's Facebook. What's next? Twitter, that's what. Not only do I believe that Twitter will be the most dominant social networking site of the future, but I also believe that Twitter is co-staring with Facebook as of current. Why? Because it's a much more simple, relaxed social networking site. On Twitter, no one cares about what pictures you're tagged in, the statuses you post, or who you're in a relationship with... all those intimate details are accessible on Facebook. Twitter heads only care about how exciting and unique your tweets are.
