    Chris Brown banned from Australia over Rihanna assault

    Chris Brown and Rihanna in court in 2009.

    Australian immigration officials on Sunday barred Chris Brown from performing Down Under due to his 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna.
    Tickets, to four Brown Aussie shows scheduled in December, were set to go on sale on Monday before the stunning announcement from Immigration Minister Peter Dutton.
    Brown, 26, was s given a “notice of intention to consider refusal” of his visa application, meaning he has 28 days to appeal and explain why he should be allowed into Australia.
    Dutton’s announcement came just days after Dutton’s predecessor, Michaelia Cash, urged Brown’s rejection.
    “People need to understand if you are going to commit domestic violence and then you want to travel around the world, there are going to be countries that say to you: ‘You cannot come in because you are not of the character we expect in Australia,’ ” Cash, now the minister of women, had said.
    Brown pleaded guilty to brutally beating Rihanna in Los Angeles in 2009, hours ahead of the Grammy Awards.
    He was sentenced to five years probation and community service.
    A rep for Brown couldn’t be immediately reached for comment on Sunday.
    Great Britain, Canada and New Zealand have previously denied Brown an application to come into their countries to perform.

    Good border security on this one & this is why I love Oz.

    The love of field and coppice
    Of green and shaded lanes,
    Of ordered woods and gardens
    Is running in your veins.
    Strong love of grey-blue distance,
    Brown streams and soft, dim skies
    I know, but cannot share it,
    My love is otherwise.
    I love a sunburnt country,
    A land of sweeping plains,
    Of ragged mountain ranges,
    Of droughts and flooding rains.
    I love her far horizons,
    I love her jewel-sea,
    Her beauty and her terror
    The wide brown land for me!
    The stark white ring-barked forests,
    All tragic to the moon,
    The sapphire-misted mountains,
    The hot gold hush of noon,
    Green tangle of the brushes
    Where lithe lianas coil,
    And orchids deck the tree-tops,
    And ferns the warm dark soil.
    Core of my heart, my country!
    Her pitiless blue sky,
    When, sick at heart, around us
    We see the cattle die
    But then the grey clouds gather,
    And we can bless again
    The drumming of an army,
    The steady soaking rain.
    Core of my heart, my country!
    Land of the rainbow gold,
    For flood and fire and famine
    She pays us back threefold.
    Over the thirsty paddocks,
    Watch, after many days,
    The filmy veil of greenness
    That thickens as we gaze ...
    An opal-hearted country,
    A wilful, lavish land
    All you who have not loved her,
    You will not understand
    though Earth holds many splendours,
    Wherever I may die,
    I know to what brown country
    My homing thoughts will fly.

    They probably thought he had rabies.

    But - can actually anyone get into the US when they have a "criminal" record? Must be hard to get a VISA?

    Boy George's drug busts in the UK kept him out of the US for a long time. And Nigella Lawson almost lost her stomping privileges here too when her two assistants accused her of drug use.

    Remember when Amy Winehouse had to attend the Grammys by satellite?
