No balls either.
Usher earned some respect yesterday when his comments on the Chris Brown/Rihanna situation were released. Specifically addressing the pictures showing Breezy jet skiing and cavorting in Miami a few days ago, Usher criticised:
"I'm a little disappointed in this photo. After the other photo [of Rihanna's bruised face posted by TMZ]? C'mon, Chris. Have a little bit of remorse, man. The man's on jet skis? Like, just relaxing in Miami?"
There was NO remorse. There has been NO accountability. Chris Brown’s life has not changed. And the fact that Usher called that out was really rather refreshing.
But not for long.
Usher has now issued an apology. An apology for what??? Did he beat down his girlfriend? Did he bust up her nose? Did he make her lips bleed?
But Chris Brown is the new Usher. The old Usher can’t sell records. The old Usher spoke out of line and needs to make sure the right people are placated:
"The comments made during a recent recording session amongst friends were taken out of context and blown out of proportion. I apologize on behalf of myself and my friends if anyone was offended. The intentions were not to pass judgment and we meant no harm. I respect and wish the best for all parties involved."
I hate people.
