CM first criticized Breezy on Twitter on Feb 19th, writing: “I would like @chrisbrown [to] fight somebody that can defend themselves,” he wrote. “Me curb stomping that turd would be a #wrestlemania moment.” In response, Brown wrote “@CMpunk needs more followers,” then tagged on an accusation of steroid use, which is illegal in wrestling. “He’s such a leader! Not to mention the roids hes on has made it utterly impossible for him pleasure a women. … @CMpunk contact my assistant and I’ll have em send u an autographed pic for my biggest FAN!!!”
[pullquote quote=”I will choke you out and I will make you feel as weak and as powerless and scared and alone as any woman who has had the misfortune of knowing a sad, cowardly little boy such as yourself.” credit=”CM Punk to Chris Brown”]
The heated exchange prompted Punk to respond via Twit Vid in a video called “This Must Be Said.” He begins by denying that his interaction with Brown had anything to do with garnering fans or media attention,“I never intended to include Chris Brown’s name in one of my tweets to start some sort of a controversy or gain publicity,” and then goes on to discern differences between himself and brown.
“I’m a life-long, proud, drug-free, straight-edge individual, so Chris and I come from two completely different worlds,” earlier mentioning it was Brown’s accusation that had driven him to respond so firmly and by video.
“See,” he began, “I don’t hit women, period,” said Punk. “In my world, women are to be revered and respected and I firmly believe that in this life, there are consequences and repercussions for people’s actions and I don’t think Chris has paid for what he’s done.”
From there, CM Punk challenges Chris Brown to a fight, instructing him to “put some gloves on and get in the ring,” adding tersely, “I will choke you out and I will make you feel as weak and as powerless and scared and alone as any woman who has had the misfortune of knowing a sad, cowardly little boy such as yourself.”
Punk said the proceeds would go to a women’s shelter of Punk’s choosing and he also hoped Chris would send the message to other young men that what he did was wrong.
In the end, Chris responded with another tweet that didn’t seem to take Punk’s video serious at all. “@cmpunk the video u just posted was cute! It’s so funny how defensive u are,” he tweeted. “And the fact that I really don’t know who you are and could give a sh*t is the funny part! I really hope this 15 minutes of fame is paying you for the long run becuz music last forever! Wrestlers come and go according to ratings!”

[photogallerylink id=143974 align=left]Adam Levine is a mentor on The Voice, but who would he choose to mentor him? He says one guy has been so influential on him – Paul McCartney. Adam says even though they’ve been in the same room he still has never met him.
Adam Levine is easily lovable as a coach on The Voice. In general, he’s lovable no matter the setting. But the point is, it’s clear that he has not only the talent to make his own star shine, but the ability to see and develop it in others. He proved this as the coach of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Javier Colon[/lastfm], who won season one of the singing competition.
But when he was asked who he’d like to be mentored by, he picked a legend. “To mentor me? You know, [one] guy that I haven’t met, who was so hugely influential to me was Paul McCartney,” Adam said. “I’m such a huge Paul McCartney fan.”
He admitted that even though he’d been in the same room with McCartney many times before he’d never met him because it hadn’t happened naturally. “I’ve been in the same room with him many times,” he said. “I think mostly because we just haven’t crossed paths and it never naturally happened, but someday I’d love to meet him.”
Personally, we’d like Beyonce to show us all her moves (but that’s a whole new blog!).
But in general, we say: Man up, Levine! If you want to meet Paul, then meet him! No day like the present. You are missing out on valuable mentor time here.

[photogallerylink id=148054 align=left] If you can’t beat them…oh? Well actually you can and have beat them. And “you” is Katy Perry, who is enjoying some more of that success she is so good at achieving.
We here at AMP just want to give a round of applause to the 27-year-old pop singer for outdoing herself yet again. The Grammy Awards stage is broadcast into millions of homes every year, and that exposure can be monumental in any musician’s career. For Katy, it meant meeting another Billboard record.
Sales of her new single, “Part of Me” debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 charts after she performed it for the first time on the Grammy stage. This marks only the 20th time in history that a track has opened up at the top spot due to a Grammy performance. The last time it happened was last year when Lady Gaga performed “Born This Way” and moved a remarkable 448,000 copies of the song in only a week. Katy topped her personal best week in sales, selling 411,000 units of the song.
Katy and Lady Gaga are in royal company when it comes to other artists that have reached this level of success in their careers. For instance, the late Whitney Houston and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson [/lastfm]both grace the list. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mariah Carey[/lastfm] has a couple songs on it, as does Britney Spears. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Celine Dion[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lauryn Hill[/lastfm], and[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Elton John[/lastfm] also have had peak moments post-Grammy shows.
It’s also notable that Katy Perry now has seven No. 1 singles. Could this be an icon in the making?
