Lil Wayne Passes Elvis Presley’s Hot 100 Record

Lil Wayne is now the solo artist king of the Billboard Hot 100 charts, knocking The King of Rock and Roll out of the top spot.

Billboard reports that the rapper has tallied 109 hits on the Hot 100, setting a new standard – and surpassing the record previously held by Elvis Presley.

Since the chart’s start in 1958 through 2003, Presley racked up 108 entries on the Hot 100.

But thanks to Weezy’s appearance alongside Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa on The Game’s “Celebration,” which is cruising at No. 82 on the chart, the Young Money/Cash Money talent is the new solo artist to beat.

While Wayne holds the top spot for a solo act with the most entries on the Hot 100, the “Glee” crew as a unit has amassed 204 entries on the chart.

We suppose that’s just one more goal for Weezy to reach for.

Chris Brown: I’m Not Going Anywhere

Some who tuned in to Sunday’s Grammys weren’t happy to see Chris Brown take the stage – twice to perform, and a third time to accept the best R&B album award – and it appears the artist hasn’t held back in response.

According to Mashable.com, which has an image of one of the tweets the 22-year-old posted Tuesday afternoon before deleting them, “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That’s the ultimate F*** OFF!” CNN has reached out to Brown’s rep, who has yet to respond.

He followed that up Wednesday with a message to the press: “Dear media, your plan is not working. I’m not going anywhere so get used to me.”

It was just three years ago, many detractors said, that the world was learning more about his assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna, which happened before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

A Washington Post op-ed pointed out that while people should have second chances, that doesn’t mean “they deserve the chance to strut around the Grammys stage a few years after being convicted of felony assault.” The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg tweeted Sunday, “Chris Brown? I don’t look to the Grammys for moral clarity, but, really? Do the words ‘felony assault’ mean anything at all?”

In addition to media critiques of Brown’s Grammy appearance, celebrities like Miranda Lambert, Jack Osbourne and Michelle Branch also openly disagreed with the Recording Academy’s decision to have Brown be a part of their program.

Lambert posted after checking out the show, “Not cool that we act like that didn’t happen. He needs to listen to [my song] ‘Gunpowder’ and lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys.” Osbourne, meanwhile, says that while he’s been getting “Chris Brown hate mail,” the singer’s supporters still haven’t changed his mind.

“Ok ok…I’ll stop,” he wrote Tuesday. “All you Chris Brown supporters are right. I am wrong…but before I go, remember one thing…. #chrisbrownbeatswomen.”

According to MTV, the president of the Recording Academy, Neil Portnow, has explained that the Grammys show is dictated by the Academy’s voting, and added, “If we’re going to get in trying to personally evaluate artists in terms of their personal lives, that’s a slippery slope that we wouldn’t want to get into.”

Meanwhile, Brown returned to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to thank his fans.

“TeamBreezy, the Grammy I received was for those of you who supported my music and the hard work and growth in my life,” Brown wrote. “I thank you! Love U!”

Chris Brown — Neighbors Says He’s a Nightmare!

Chris Brown is at war with his fellow West Hollywood condo owners, who claim the rapper is the neighbor from hell, parking in handicapped spaces, blasting music, and racing dogs in hallways.

TMZ has obtained several pics of Brown’s super-expensive rides … clearly parked in spaces reserved for disabled drivers. We’re told Chris has been ticketed numerous times by the city.

The building manager tells us everyone is fed up and they’re now planning on towing Chris’ cars if he dares park there again.

Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ, Chris is the one who’s getting screwed. Geragos says, the deed clearly shows the two spaces belong to Chris, but the developer never disclosed the spots were reserved for the handicapped. Geragos says Chris is in litigation with the building over the spaces and plans to fight the tickets as well. But the building manager says Chris is parking in other handicapped spots as well.

But the gripes go beyond parking spaces. Chris’ fellow condo-owners tell TMZ … the dude is utterly disrespectful, blasting loud music and partying day and night … even racing dogs down the hallways at all hours.

And that’s not all. We’re told police showed up this week, after someone vandalized the elevator by carving “C.B.” on the elevator door.

Mind you … Chris has only lived in the building a few months.

It’s condo-mania!
