Chris Brown Paints Over Graffiti Masterpiece
Looks like Chris Brown has bowed to pressure from his unhappy neighbors and painted over the unpopular "art" on his Hollywood Hills house.
TMZ reports that the singer whitewashed the cartoonish monsters that he'd spray-painted himself in May, not because of the neighbors' complaints and a possible fine by the city, but "because he wanted to."
The L.A. Building Department of Safety says if its inspectors are satisfied the graffiti is covered tomorrow Brown will not be fined.
TMZ has photos of two men painting over the graffiti, surely something they'll add to their resumé: "Painted Over Priceless Chris Brown Masterpiece, Restored Peace To The Hills."
