Chris Brown’s painted home walls scares neighbors

Chris Brown had the walls of his Hollywood Hills home painted recently, but the artistic expressions scare his neighbors, Los Angeles Times reports. When it comes to beauty, esthetics and art, each of us has his/her own opinion and taste. Some of us, though, have a visibly different understanding of what is tasteful to be represented on the outside walls of their estate, especially when it comes to eccentric celebrities. Singer Chris Brown has recently had a retaining wall of his home painted with sharp-toothed, red-eyed monsters which literally scare the people walking by. Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association, spoke with the Los Angeles Times about the frightening goblin-like faces staring at the neighbors every time they pass by the “Run It!” performer’s mansion. “It’s like devils on the wall — big scary eyes and big scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we’re used to”, she explained. The L.A. city code officials received several complaints about the monstrous paintings and, in response, cited Brown $376 for unpermitted and excessive signage. He was also ordered to remove the monsters from the wall in maximum 30 days. Negri explained that the neighborhood reps aren’t trying to make Brown give up on the painting, but to tone it down and be a better neighbor. “I know a $300 fine is probably pocket change”, she...

HBO’s “Girls” themed nail polish line

HBO’s series “Girls” was the source of inspiration for a themed nail polish line. The collection is the result of a collaboration between Lena Dunham, the show’s creator, and Deborah Lippman, famous manicurist and nail polish guru, The Examiner reported. Soon enough, “Girls” fans will have more to look forward to than spending their Sundays sharing the struggles of their favorite twenty-something characters trying to figure out life in NYC. The TV show inspired nail polish line is already available for pre-order on Lippmann’s website but is supposed to start shipping come mid-January. The nail polish collection includes four shades, each of them inspired by one of the show’s main characters. Lena Dunham’s character Hannah was the source of inspiration for the Hapless Hunter Green polish, which is a deep forest green. Allison Williams’ Marnie got a bubbly pink shade, classy and sweet, named Prim And Proper Pink. Shoshanna, played by Zosia Mamet, inspired a light pastel violet called Virtuous Vivid Violet and Jessa’s, Jemima Kirke, spirit was captured by a deep, rich Bohemian Burgundy. The entire set is available for purchase for $45. In a recent statement, Dunham said she had always been a fan of Lippman’s work. “Deborah Lippmann’s colors are irreverent and classy and I’ve always coveted them (and stolen them from my mother), so who better to embody the GIRLS’ spirit in polish form,” the...
