After protests, Brown cancels concert in GuyanaOrganizers say R&B star Chris Brown has canceled a stadium concert in Guyana after local protests over his 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna, The Associated Press reports. Brown was billed to headline a Dec. 26 show. But he drew the ire of women's rights groups and opposition lawmakers who said Brown would not be welcome in Guyana three years after his assault of Barbadian superstar Rihanna. Concert promoter Hits & Jams Entertainment said Thursday that Brown backed out, citing discomfort with the protests.
