Rihanna brought down the house at her concert at the Barclays Center on Sunday night, taking the entire neighborhood with her, according to Prospect Heights residents.
But the loud, booming bass rumblings that disrupted the neighborhood on Sunday night were nothing new for people who live in the direct vicinity of the Barclays Center. These complaints come less than a week after Barclays Center developer Forest City Ratner Companies was ordered to pay the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) a $3,200 fine for violations after a Swedish House Mafia concert in early March.
Forget about the stockings and the giant tree in your living room. Forget about the ham or, if you’re Jewish, the traditional Chinese take-out to be followed by a matinee. (Which at this point has turned into ordering Thai from SeamlessWeb and trying to find something funny on Roku). Forget about how WTF it was that you didn’t get an iPhone or car this year.

Chris Brown is either going through an insane period of self-flagellation, or this is the worst September’s Fools Day prank ever. New photos of the rapper emerged earlier today showing new neck ink that looks suspiciously like the 2009 photo of a badly-beaten Rihanna that was leaked to TMZ.
Is this the star’s way of giving himself a scarlet letter for life?
Last night was the 2012 MTV Music Awards, for anyone who didn’t spend the evening celebrating Fashion’s Night Out or glued to Fox News, CNN or MSNBC. And it seemed like a lot of people tuned in … at least half of our Twitter feed was dominated by messages about Kevin Hart, Pink, One Direction and, yes, Frank Ocean.
Even as Madonna brings her world tour to Yankee Stadium for shows on September 6 and 8, longtime fans will have a sneaking suspicion that she’s already sung her swan song.
