Chris Brown postpones Between the Sheets Tour with Trey Songz and Tyga

On Monday evening, Chris Brown announced via Instagram that the start of the Between the Sheets Tour with Trey Songz and Tyga — which is scheduled to stop at Royal Farms Arena on Saturday — has been postponed due to a judge's ruling against the singer's travel request. 

There is no official word yet on which dates are affected, and calls to Royal Farms Arena regarding the status of this weekend's show have not been returned.

"The judge would not sign off on my travel to do the tour until I finish these last 100 hours of community service," Brown wrote.

Earlier this month, a California judge revoked Brown's probation for traveling outside of Los Angeles for a San Jose, Calif., nightclub performance without gaining permission from his probation officer. News of the appearance circulated online after an Instagram post captured Brown reacting to gunshots fired within the club. Five people reportedly suffered non-life-threatening injures during the shooting.

'Gotham' recap, 'Welcome Back, Jim Gordon'

Good to have you back, Jim, even if your coworkers don’t agree.

Jim’s on a mission to put every bad guy behind bars. But the bad guy this time isn’t the predictable super-villain or a mafia crony. Instead, it’s the most insidious and hardest to catch: a corrupt cop.

From start to finish, the fast-paced “Welcome Back, Jim Gordon” traces the deep-seated roots of corruption in the GCPD precinct.

Jim and Harvey arrive at a crime scene in a warehouse with a body hanging from a machine. Arnold Flass, a narcotics cop you know is up to no good, is there to tell them that the victim is a low-level drug dealer.

It’s a “public service homicide,” Harvey quips.

Jim, as always, is determined to find justice, even when Harvey’s given up. As he’s searching the body, he finds mini blue drug bags in the heel of the victim’s shoes. Even more promising for their case is a witness who can ID the killer.

Don’t celebrate just yet. The informant is stabbed in the back with an ice pick as he’s waiting for the...

'The Bachelor' recap, Farmer Chris and his sisters in Week 4

We first learn that tonight’s episode will feature a “sneak peek” into the new "Cinderella" movie. What they should have said is that this episode is a promo for the new "Cinderella" movie, but you know, they can’t give too much away.

As is typical, Chris Harrison starts with a dramatic introduction, reminding the women that Bachelor Chris is there to meet his wife and believes she is waiting in this room. He surprises them with this week's “unexpected plot twist” – Bachelor Chris is getting help from three “people that know him better than just about anybody … his sisters.” They all pretend they’re excited.


Becca, America’s Sweetheart, opens the date card to read to the room.

It reads, “Megan, Kaitlyn, Ashley S., Ashley I., Juelia, Samantha, Mackenzie, and Kelsey -- Let's do what feels natural… Chris.” And we learn that not only is this going to be a “sneak peek” into the new "Cinderella" movie, but also an episode of completely obvious innuendos. And more Ambien.

'Downton Abbey' Season 5, Episode 4 recap, Love's labour's lost

With the exception of Isobel Crawley, most everyone on tonight's episode either gave or got bad news. 

Really, no one has been in really good spirits so far this season. Is the dog happy at least? 

But hey, there was a fashion show! And we did finally get to meet Mary's socialite nemesis, Mabel Lane Fox! And, as her name pretty much suggests, she was awful. 

Let's get right to the big bombshells.

Mary makes a break for it

Poor Lord Gillingham. It's not like we really enjoy him all that much, but he's not a terrible guy. Well, until tonight. 

Mary's just not feeling it, so when she goes to London to attend a fashion show, she decides to break the news to him in person. At a park. In front of a Peter Pan statue. I guess that's the way you cushioned the blow in 1924. 

Gillingham's not having it, and basically says that if a woman of Mary's social class sleeps with a man then it's expected that she will marry him. For her part, Mary seems taken aback but keeps her cool, even when he...

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' finale recap, 'Curtain Call'

Much like “Coven” before it, the season finale of "American Horror Story: Freak Show" arrives with an overarching sense that the entire season can’t be browbeaten into cohesion in the space of one episode. Of course it can’t, but it’s pretty fun to watch Ryan Murphy and company try.

“Freak Show” has been, for the most part, a fun season – featuring more gasps, shocks and truly OMG-WTF moments than ever before – and the fact that it spends so much time drawing connections between itself and the seasons that came before it is worth the price of admission alone.

But is it a good season? That, much like the much-debated meaning of “freak” is probably best left to the eye of the beholder.

It’s Dandy’s world now. It’s a new day at Fraulein Elsa’s Cabinet of Curiosities and Dandy is in charge now. He’s made the freaks put up new banners proclaiming himself the star of the show, but shockingly enough, audiences aren’t exactly lining up to see Dandy belt out Cole Porter tunes.

8 area cocktails to keep you warm this winter

Keep the long johns, space heaters and any other way to stay warm in the winter.

For our money, a finely made cocktail is the most effective — or at least the most fun way to thaw our minds and bodies. Whether it is a steaming hot cider, a smoke-filled bourbon mixture or a hot buttered rye concoction, we've compiled eight outside-of-the-box cocktails that will hit the spot in ways nothing else will.

Smokey & The Bandit, Twisted Pizza Kitchen & Pub
8712 Loch Raven Blvd., Towson; $8-$15.

A Days Inn might not be the most obvious location to find an eye-catching winter cocktail, but the craft-centric Twisted Pizza Kitchen & Pub — the hotel's connected restaurant and bar — aims to change that.

The Smokey & the Bandit, one of Twisted's most popular drinks, according to director of operations Scott Hetrick, is also its signature cocktail. Patrons begin by choosing a type of whiskey for the base. For the cocktail, Twisted offers 22 brands of bourbon, eights brands of...
