When Chris Brown isn’t making music, he’s Konfuzed, the graffiti artist.

At Fine Art Auctions Miami’s Urban Art Week, Breezy, alongside street artist KAI, painted seven works on-site over the course of three days. The duo even gave a vintage Porsche the graffiti treatment when they decked the hood out with some spray paint doodles. Two of Brown’s pieces sold for $25,000 each and another sold for almost $12,000.

Half of the sales will be donated to the Arts and Business Council of Miami.

Hotels Now Have Tracking Chips in Their Towels

Hotels Now Have Tracking Chips in Their Towels

werewrer34534534545

Stealing hotel towels is a proud tradition that dates back to the very first time the first hotel put out its first towel. So I’m sad to say technology is here to RUIN it.

A company in Miami called Linen Tracking Technology created a tiny, cheap chip that hotels can put in their towels, robes, and other items.

And they say more than 2,000 hotels have already started using them.

But according to Linen Tracking Technology, hotels probably WON’T call the cops on you if you steal their towels. But they WILL track their towels down and ask for them back . . . or charge you for them.

Hotels lose up to $50,000-a-year from stuff that gets stolen out of the rooms. And a survey found that 68% of people sometimes take something bigger than the little soaps or shampoos.

Photographer Sues Justin Bieber Over Bodyguard Beatdown

Photographer Sues Justin Bieber Over Bodyguard Beatdown

Justin-Bieber-And-Bodyguard-Now-Sued-By-Photographer-As-Claims-Pile-665x385For someone so famous, Justin Bieber sure doesn’t like getting his picture taken.  TMZ reports that a Miami photographer is suing Justin claiming he was injured by the pop star’s bodyguard after he tried to snap some shots of Justin at a Miami club.  Manuel Munoz says that on the January evening Biebs was busted for DUI in Miami, he was taking pictures of the singer in front of the SET nightclub when Justin’s bodyguard chased him into a nearby Subway restaurant, locked the door and cornered him in the bathroom. The bodyguard demanded Munoz delete the photos, tried to remove the camera’s memory card and then kicked and punched him.  His camera was damaged and the bodyguard walked away with the memory card. Munoz is suing Bieber and the bodyguard, Dwayne Patterson, for unspecified damages.

 But Munoz may have a hard time proving his case.  In the police report from the incident, he doesn’t say anything about being punched and kicked. Instead he says he was tripped by the bodyguard and sustained a “small scratch in his left knee.”  The report also states that Munoz wanted money from the bodyguard for the pics, asking for $10K but the bodyguard wouldn’t pay more than $5K.
