Trending in New Orleans: birthday wishes for Chris Brown

Assuming Twitter would be abuzz with discussion about terrible Mexican restaurants, I was surprised to see birthday wishes for known girlfriend-beater (and also hip-hop artist) Chris Brown as one of the top trending topics.

While many of the tweets for #happybirthdaychrisbrown are things along the lines of "WHY IS THIS A TRENDING TOPIC??", there's many like these:

Does anyone know why this guy is still famous? Is his music that good? Why the intense loyalty — especially among women?
