Chris Brown: The Ultimate F**K Off
Chris Brown splits opinions. Some say he’s a talented musician who “just made a mistake” in the past. Some say leopards never change their spots, and his abusive behavior cannot, and should not, be tolerated. Let alone rewarded.
Brown was found guilty of domestic assault against his then girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009, and was publicly shamed for his actions. After this set back, Brown was forced to wait a few years for a comeback; and he did it in style, releasing an award winning album, and dueting with the likes of Justin Bieber and Chipmunk.
And here’s where I first got annoyed with Brown. His lyrics in the duet ‘Champion’ with Chipmunk literally made me turn the radio off in disgust.
He sings- “I used to see my momma getting beat down, is that the real definition of me now?”
Er…yes! Not only does he try to play the sympathy card, but he also tries to absolve himself from his past actions. I totally believe that it’s what you do that defines you. And beating up anyone, let alone your girlfriend, is something that should reflect on your character, no matter who you are.
To those who say that Chris Brown’s recent win at the Grammys should have no reflection on his past deeds do perhaps have a point. Because it is a music award, not an award personally rewarding Brown’s character, right?
Well, that’s how it should be. But Brown himself has added fuel to the fire by tweeting some pretty idiotic things over the past year. Tweeting about his win, now deleted by Team Breezy, shows how amazingly tactless, and amazingly idiotic, Brown actually is.
“HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY. Now! That’s the ultimate F**K OFF.”
Aw, shucks. What a nice bit of sentiment, Chris! Thanks a lot! So for Chris Brown, his actions against his ex-girlfriend are now water under the bridge…because he’s won a Grammy. And that’s the main reason why I’m annoyed. Chris Brown actually thinks that because his music has earned him a music award, this somehow reflects on his character. It certainly does not. And his comments prove just how little he has learned from his experiences.
Personally, I don’t think the mentality that comes with domestic abuse ever leaves a person. If he’s done it once, he can do it again. And he might have paid for his mistake, but now he seems to think that because he’s making good music, that makes him a good person.
Sorry, Breezy. I shan’t be buying into any of your idiotic statements any time soon. And that includes your music.
