From a CNN iReport:
At the most recent Pep Rally for Waverly High School, located in Waverly NY…three white students were to perform a skit in black face, depicting Chris Brown and Rhianna most notibly. In this skit they would display acts of domestic violence as satire to an audience that included not only students but parents, faculty, and various members of the media and community leaders. None of them stopped the skit.
Kids these days. (Also, the faculty, and the parents, the classmates defending the skit...)
Chris Brown is in love with two people and is having a rough time... so he thought this batsh-t confessional video would help?
I'm stressed out. That's just real sh-t man, I'm stressed out... When you share history with somebody and then you fall in love with somebody else it's kind of difficult. ... I don't wanna hurt either or. I'm not trying [to] be a player... I just care. Too much sometimes.

Battleship hasn't come out yet and Rihanna's possibly landed herself a plum role in the upcoming Fast Six movie. The film is the latest in the strangely successful Fast and the Furious franchise, proving that it's able to jam-pack the basic elements that make America so great in two hours: fast cars, beautiful women, men with square jawlines, and The Rock and Vin Diesel punching the living spit out of one another.
Another surprising casting tidbit is that David Tennant of Doctor Who fame is also reportedly in talks to star in the movie. Whether the TARDIS will be outfitted with rims has not been specified.
