Christopher Brown. An extremely talented and gifted man of the arts. He can sing, write, and produce music. He can act, draw, paint and dance. Not only is he gifted but an international superstar known for his talents. As of lately, he is known for all of his simple actions which makes his gifts look ancillary. To travel the past 5 years, you might have asked - Bruh did you have to fight Drake? Did you have to say Khelani’s suicide attempt was staged? Did you have you to fight at Howard Homecoming? Did you have to call out Tyson Beckford and threaten him in Las Vegas? I could write more, but I don’t have the space allotment. All of these antics seem real plausible for a Tyler Perry movie (or sitcom). But this is his current life - a series of piss poor decisions.
Most recently (sigh), a white woman was in his home (that’s another conversation to discuss the racial overtones), called the police and said he threatened to kill her with a gun. And of course, LAPD came to his home guns a blazing, ready. Now on the surface “Chris Brown, weapons, violence and women” mean automatic guilty. The allegedly Ray J was there and uber’d home (I cannot confirm or deny this part of the story but it is absolutely hilarious to think that the Prince of the Creeps was also in this debauchery). Then Chris Brown released a video while the police was outside of his home and he stated “I don’t even f--- ugly b----s”. When he stated this, I believed him. Because he does not, this woman was not his type at all. Sue me. I mean this one time, I automatically believed Chris because in my mind I could not be this stupid. Plus he has bodyguards. I’m glad I was right this time.
But I have one remaining question “WHY DO YOU HAVE THESE LOSER, RANDOM BUMS IN YOUR HOUSE AND IN YOUR PRESENCE!?” Like c’mon! You house was robbed and they hogged tied your aunt. At that moment unless you REALLY trust them, no one should be in your house. Now from the photos, Chris Brown’s house is poppin’, so I see why people would love to be there. It’s nice, full of women, liquor and drugs – it’s a moocher’s paradise. But Sir, the people you surround yourself around are NOT YOUR FRIENDS. Let me repeat, THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIENDS. You are being used. And this situation could have went left real quick. Especially with the visibility of black men being killed by police, you need to question everyone within a 1 mile radius of your property. My house would be on lockdown until Royalty started middle school.
I like Chris. I want to see Chris prosper. I want Chris to win. But he has to change his circle, and leave these trashy women and bum friends of his alone. When the old folks use to sit around and talk about the company you keep, I think Chris was somewhere practicing his dance moves, mimicking the Scream music video (don’t act like none of you all tried to copy the dance in the living and fell at the same part!). I wish these musicians and artist watched Vh1 behind the music or TV One’s Unsung and LEARN from the mistakes of those before them. They seem to follow the same destructive paths that cut down great people too early. It ain’t too late; he just needs some real friends not enablers and users.
