For someone that wants us to know he’s a changed man, Chris Brown has certainly done himself no favours this week. He’s not even my son but I would love to give him a good old bitch slap and put his hot-headed butt right into place!
The 23-year-old made many a negative headline this week. First one being, he was caught on camera cursing out a valet after he was ordered to pay a $10 parking fee (yes, we can understand the average Joe going off but you’re an effing millionaire so $10 should come as absolutely nothing, unless you’re going broke). The next bad episode is Chris reportedly kicking his long-term body guard Big Pat off a flight.
And then have him take another one after some dispute. And the third, (yes, there’s a third negative story), he hopped on stage at the Emerson Theatre in Hollywood last night where he went on a profanity-filled anti-Drake rant. That was spurred on when a woman DJ started spinning Drake’s song, ‘Started from the Bottom’. It was only recently he made negative headlines for his violent brawl with fellow R&B crooner Frank Ocean.
He will never be a favourite with the media (and other celebrities) simply because of the 2009 incident. That will stay with him for the rest of his life, no matter how much he tries to convince us that he’s a changed man. And these latest episodes do not show us he’s changed at all. The anger issues are clearly in full effect, giving media further ammunition to tear him down again. Any sensible person would just keep a low profile until they are ready to drop their new music. But for Chris Brown, that’s simply too much to ask. Going back to Rihanna has done him no favours because their relationship will always be viewed in contempt and he almost lost his career.
He actually had something good with Karrueche Tran, now infamously known as Rice Cake thanks to Rihanna and Melissa. Their relationship was actually care-free, had no controversy attached to it, and she was actually a sweetheart. But you can’t root for someone who is not willing to make way in return. Given that he started out with so much potential and promise, it’s really sad to see what he’s become.
