Goblins adorn a wall at Chris Brown’s Hollywood Hills home.

Brown cited $376 for monstrous mural

LOS ANGELES – Grammy-winning musician Chris Brown's neighbors are unhappy with what some are calling frightening art he's chosen to have painted along the curb of his Hollywood Hills home.

A neighborhood group said the grimacing, sharp-toothed, red-eyed goblins painted along a retaining wall have been scaring children, and are an eyesore to boot, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"There are lots of babies, lots of children, and they're literally frightened. It's like devils on the wall -- big scary eyes and big scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we're used to," Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Association, said.

L.A. city code officials responded to complaints about the art and cited the singer $376 for unpermitted and excessive signage.
