Okay, Chris Brown, That's Enough Already


We've mostly avoided posting about the Chris Brown self-destruction that's been going on this week, but this video of him on 106 & Park earlier this week filled me with the kind of rage that is usually the type that Chris Brown shows his "loved ones." The thing that is patently ridiculous is that Brown STILL doesn't understand why people would be asking him about what he did to Rihanna, or that he should be punished at all for it. Here he is, saying that he was "doing whatever" in the last year (aka being pushed out of the public eye because he punched Rihanna in the face many times) and "frowning," before he eventually goes on to say that the reason he was upset on Good Morning America was that they weren't supposed to ask him about him punching Rihanna in the face many times.



Go to the 4:45 mark of the video for the part of referencing. It is the worst. That's exactly how you erase the perception of you as a monster: By throwing a fit when someone asks you what happened when you punched Rihanna many times in the face. The worst part? That the people in the audience seem to buy this shit. Why can't this dude just pack it in and go away? Or let someone pummel him in the face for about three days on national television?

Andrew, didn't you know that #1 Billboard debuts are basically the same as not punching your girlfriend in the face?

...repeatedly, and threatening to kill her?


Chris Brown's not going away because he's a talented performer. He sings and dances very well, vapid pop leanings notwithstanding. He's a deeply troubled kid (with a crazy scary history of abuse as a child) who doesn't know how to act, and he's obviously not well versed in how to carry himself in the public eye or how much the Rihanna incident is and will always be a part of the public dialogue. End of the day, the boy needs therapy. He's trapped in a cycle that he needs to break. I don't want him to go away. That solves nothing. I want him to get it together.

That said, I watched the interview, and I'm sick of daytime television personalities constantly baiting hip hop artists with provocative questioning to try and make them do or say something stupid. Remember Kanye vs Matt Lauer and Leno? Or Cam'ron vs Bill O'Reilly? There's a history here that I don't like.

Craig, I agree on the interview front. This time around, in particular, it just seemed like they were wildly unprepared -- like the interview had just been thrown together -- so Roberts fell into default scandal-based questions. Not as contrived and intentional, perhaps, as Lauer was, but annoying and shallow reporting nonetheless.

That said, someone is his camp needs to talk to him about how to better use talking points. "For the fans" is fine, but the dismissive way he talks about "all that happened last year" isn't doing his image any favors.
