Chris Brown is getting some new ink…on his head. During a day off from his “One Hell of a Nite” tour, the R&B superstar got a tattoo on the back of his head. He shaved some of his hair to make room for the new tat, which appears to be the ancient Greek statue Venus de Milo, who can also be seen on the cover of Jay Z’s album Magna Carta… Holy Grail.
The statue is believed to depict Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty.
Breezy documented the process on Instagram before deleting it. “#onehellofanight #legendarynights #OHB do what want and if u aint wit the bandwagon u will be soon #KEEPIT,” he wrote.
The tattoo is just the latest in Brown’s expansive collection, which covers his neck, arms, chest, and back.
This will mark Pharrell’s first time performing as a solo artist. He performed back in 2006 with the Pussycat Dolls and Ludacris, and joined Diddy, Usher, Busta Rhymes, and Ginuwine for a medley of “Bad Boy for Life” and “Pass the Courvoisier” in 2002.
A$AP previously joined Rihanna for a performance of her single “Cockiness” in 2012. His video for “L$D” is nominated for Best Editing.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis last performed their marriage equality anthem, “Same Love,” in 2013 alongside Mary Lambert and surprise guest Jennifer Hudson. The duo is gearing up to release its new single “Downtown” this week.
They join previously announced performer The Weeknd, who will deliver his No. 1 hit “Can’t Feel My Face,” and Nick Jonas, who will perform his new single “Levels” during the pre-show.
Kanye West will receive the prestigious Video Vanguard Award.
