He’s dumb and he’s not sorry
I couldn’t get to the recent Chris Brown interview yesterday in studio because there was too much sh-t going on so I’m sorry it’s a day late. He spoke to Page Six Magazine recently because there’s a new album called FAME – Forgiving All My Enemies – and in the spirit of forgiveness, he referred to his beatdown of Rihanna as a “mishap”. You can call it a poor choice of words in the most lenient spirit I suppose, but really, it’s just another example of how f-cking stupid he really is. Have you ever heard Chris Brown speak? On Larry King? Remember? This is not an articulate person. Not educated, not informed, can’t communicate, and he’s arrogant. So of course he’s going to characterise it as a “mishap”. That’s what happens when you’re stupid and you’re not sorry.
What’s more concerning isn’t so much the description of the incident as a “mishap” but the lack of contrition he demonstrates, still, as a result of it:
"People are always gonna talk. But I'm in a positive place. I consider myself a grown-ass man. At the end of the day if I walk around apologizing to everybody, I'm gonna look like a damn fool."
At the end of the day then, what he cares more about, rather than atoning, or acknowledging, is what he looks like. And that’s always been my Chris Brown theme: that he has never truly demonstrated that he has or is willing to truly take ownership for what he did. Rather, it’s always about how he’s been wronged (record stores won’t stock his music), and how people abandoned him after he almost destroyed his girlfriend’s head.
"A handful of people stuck by me. (But a lot) turn[ed] away. They don't want to get involved with it because they don't want their name attached to anything negative. Unknowingly, they kind of show their true colors when they do that.”
Translation: you should continue being friends with someone who violates your morality. Otherwise, your “true colours” reflect that you have no loyalty.
Those are my only choices? Stick by you or be an asshole?
How about this? Here’s a suggestion:
“I know what I did was wrong and I’m trying to prove to people that I can change. I know it will take me a long time. But I will try. I will keep trying. It’s my responsibility since I screwed up to try and be better.”
Wouldn’t that be the better message?
No. For Chris Brown, the ONLY message is this:
“I’m tired of saying sorry. I did what the court told me to do. I did what I needed to do on paper. And no more. I don’t have to do more. And anyone who doesn’t agree that I shouldn’t have assaulted Rihanna can f-ck off.”
Loud and clear, you little bitch. Loud and clear.
As noted earlier though, it’s not surprising that Chris Brown still fronts like he’s a victim. We called that a long time ago. What’s alarming is that people are into it. What’s alarming is that young girls still want to get with it. That they have not only forgiven him, but are defending him.
“You can't blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don't want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap. The last two years, everybody dissed me. But my fans were so dedicated. The way I look at it is, you can't walk around mad, because then you just prove everybody right that you're an angry person."
He’s right. His fans ARE dedicated. Go to the Us Weekly post re: this issue – click here. Read the comments.
Chris Brown is a loser. We’ve known that. It won’t change. But what about THIS? How do we deal with THIS?
