Chris Brown has been ordered to appear in court over concerns about whether he properly completed a community service requirement and for a review of his probation, The Associated Press reports. Brown had been sentenced to probation and six months of community service for his infamous 2009 assault of Rihanna. Although Brown had completed his service, a prosecutor has raised questions about how many hours Brown had served after an audit was ordered in July.

Brown has been busy dealing with a $16 million lawsuit and other fallout from his June brawl with Drake in a New York nightclub.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
