Two years ago, Chris Brown became notorious and it wasn’t for his poppy songs and dance moves. After the Rihanna incident that left the Barbadian singer beaten bloody, Brown became the epitome of this generations’ Ike Turner. That’s a sad title to achieve at the age of 19. Now at 21, Brown thinks he’s matured by trying to avoid talking about it like it was no big deal, but today’s Good Morning America appearance proves just how big it still is.
In this video, you can see Brown’s anger brewing over the discussion of his issues with Rihanna. To him, it’s a thing of the past that’s unimportant compared to his music. I’m sorry but music and self promotion is NOT more important than domestic violence. Rather than admit remorse and show human like qualifies, Brown dismisses the haters and wants people to buy his album that dropped today: “F.A.M.E.” (Forgiving All My Enemies.) Um shouldn’t they be forgiving you?
After this segment, Brown proceeded to throw a chair at his dressing room window, sending shards of glass onto the streets of Time Square. He then ripped off his ugly vest and stormed onto the street, shirtless. Someone still needs anger management, a brain, and a heart.
But the bigger issue here is that Brown should be reprimanded. Radio stations shouldn’t play his stupid “Yeah Yeah Yeah” song. Dumb girls who think he’s cute shouldn’t buy his album and platforms like Good Morning America shouldn’t even have him on to give him the opportunity to clear his name when he’s done nothing but taint himself further.
In the age of celebrity pandemonium, there should be standards. Hot (or not) messes are everyone’s obsession it seems i.e.- Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Mel Gibson. But it’s not right. If someone has no redeeming traits and is just a sloppy deranged screw up, we shouldn’t praise them and give them more attention. We should turn our heads and look for more admirable people to talk about.
Chris Brown falls into that category. Maybe the bleach has gone to his head, but until he fully acknowledged his Rihanna error and doesn’t break windows, no one should support him. As for his new album? Lady Gaga should punch him in the face for stealing her album title and letting him know how abuse feels.
