VIDEO: Chris Brown Refuses to Detail Altercation with Rihanna in Interview with Larry King

Chris Brown sat down for his first interview which aired Wednesday on CNN with his mother and attorney on Larry King Live, where he refuses to detail what led to his beating Rihanna, but says he's "disappointed" in himself. "I'm in shock, because, first of all, that's not who I am as a person, and that's not who I promise I want to be," the 20-year-old singer, who was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community labor, said.

Leona Lewis Named Billboard’s Top New Artist of the Year

Leona Lewis has been named Billboard’s top new artist of the year, determined by performance on Billboard’s albums and singles charts. The X-Factor winner and Simon Cowell protégé's latest single, a cover of Snow Patrol's "Run" (see music video below), has gone straight to the top of the singles chart, becoming the fastest-selling download in British chart history, with 133,000 copies. It was only in March that Lewis became the first British female to top the U.S. charts in over 20 years with her hit single "Bleeding Love." Last week, the Brit beauty nabbed three Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Bleeding Love," while her debut album Spirit received a nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album.

Personally I've got a lot of hard work to do."

The 31-year-old musician (born Mathangi Arulpragasam) isn't letting her super-pregs status stop her, having recorded three tracks on the ga ga worthy Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack and finishing up a new album for next year! "I think my baby is going to start off making club music. That's all I've been listening to. Of course, you never know," she tells the newspaper. "We actually don't want our kid to do music, so we're going to buy it loads of instruments … so that it will completely rebel and go the other way." Of how her pregnancy has affected her music, M.I.A. says, "When I sing, I have to be aware that someone can hear me inside. It's really strange. I definitely feel less angry."
