The Buzz: Charlie to fugitive: Call me maybe

Perhaps after some bad investment decisions, like giving the tax-troubled Lindsay Lohan a cool $100k last year, he's doing it for the reward.

Amid the multistate manhunt for ex-Los Angeles cop Christopher Dorner, Charlie Sheen posted a video on TMZ asking Christopher to get in touch.

In an online manifesto, Christopher, who's wanted in the deaths of three people, including a police officer, promised a campaign of "asymmetrical warfare" against law enforcement -- and made time to praise his favorite celebrities. "Charlie Sheen, you're effin awesome," wrote Christopher, who also gave shout-outs to Michelle Obama and Anthony Bourdain.

With a reward set at $1 million for capturing Christopher, the Sheen-by-another-name took to the Internet.

"You mentioned me in your manifesto, so thank you for your kind words," Charlie says in the video. "I am urging you to call me. Let's figure out together how to end this thing."

Only one problem: Charlie forgot to leave his number!

SSRqTwas the night before the Grammys

"Beware the Ides of March," a soothsayer says to Caesar in Shakespeare's "Julis Caesar." If that soothsayer were around saying sooths today, he'd tell Chris Brown, "Beware the Grammys."

Or rather, the day before the Grammys. It was Grammys Eve 2009, you might remember, that the "Forever" singer totaled the face of his then- (and now-) girlfriend Rihanna; and on Saturday, the day before the Grammys, Breezy totaled his Porsche in Beverly Hills.

Well, it wasn't really him who slammed the car into a wall -- the paparazzi made him do it.

Those dastardly paps, so desperate to snap a picture of a star picking their nose behind the wheel that they forced Justin Bieber into a high-speed chase last year, are to blame, Chris claims, and his rep says a lawsuit is in the works.

Meanwhile, Chris Doherty, owner of INF, which employed all the photographers at the scene, tells TMZ his employees "had nothing to do with Chris Brown crashing. ... He crashed his car and it's convenient for him to blame us. He needs to be careful with his defamatory statements."

Chris' reaction? Hoisting a boom box on his shoulder to play his hit single "Don't Judge Me."

Chris, next time it's the day before the Grammys, just stay home.
