Before anything else, I have to get this rant out of the way, Chris Brown, Rihanna? WTF! How could he do that? Am I the only person who thinks that there's something seriously loco going down because the reports are too bizarre. I first heard about it Sunday night watching the Grammy's Live From The Red Carpet on E, when Ryan Seacrest confirmed that they would both not be attending because Chris Brown had assaulted an unknown female even though they were slated to perform. Then I was just like "see this irresponsible kids o, get a little bit of fame and you think you can blow off things like the freakin Grammys". Fast forward to Monday morning and I get an alert from TMZ [I subscribe, its shameful, I know] and I'm just like sheeyiit! Rihanna was the unknown female? I hit the google circuit and all these reports were just coming in fast and furious, to say I am flabbergasted would be an understatement. It reminded me of a convo I had with my cousin, Chidi a few months back, about the both of them and how Breezy was soo cute and soo cool and such a sweet guy and that Rihanna would be the one to eff with him [you know these island chicks]. A couple of months after this the *Kanye scandal hit and it just confirmed everyrhing I said that day, but this totally blows it outta the water like OMG!

*this was when there were reports that Miss Barbados shagged Kanye and gave Chris Brown herpes.

The gist [from the ever reliable TMZ] is that shortly after they left Clive Davis' pre Grammy party Breezy got an sms from a woman who wrote about hooking up later and that's what started the confrontation. He apparently pulled over and hit her so badly with his fists that she could barely open her eyes, she had a fat lip, swollen mouth, her nose was bloodied and there were contusions on her forehead and both sides of her face and also BITE MARKS [seriously!] on her arm and several fingers!!! She wasn't even the one that called 911, people heard her screaming and called the police and by then, Chris Brown had taken off to turn himself in. I need to digress a little, EFFING TURN HIMSELF IN! Like, he left a woman all battered and bruised in his car and went to turn himself in, like what good is that gonna do? Anyhoo the police took pictures of Rihanna at the scene and took her to the hospital, they then impounded his car, a rented Lamborghini. He was booked on a charge of felony criminal threats with the possibility of further charges e.g. domestic abuse being filed against him, he was released on $50,000 bail on Monday.

The repercussions have been outstanding:
1) He was set to host 2 parties in Arizona this weekend for the NBA All-Star festivities and he's just been officially replaced with Nelly.

2)His "Got Milk" campaign just got shelved, with this statement fom the campaign people. "The Milk Moustache campaign is taking the allegations agains Chris Brown very seriously. We are very proud and protective of the image of the Milk Moustache campaign and the responsible message it sends to teens. Mr. Brown's ad was launched last fall and is scheduled to end this week"

3)Wrigley annouced today that they were suspending their ad campaign for Doublemint gum featuring Breezy, they said in a statement. "We have made the decision to suspend the current advertising featuring Brown and any related marketing communications until after the matter is resolved"

I don't think I've seen this kind of backlash against a star since the Kate Moss debacle 2 years ago and that was just her harming herself. Here we have a young superstar beating on a female and not just any female but Rihanna. He's career is so effed, like if he can recover from this I'll truly believe that anything is possible, even though we live in an age of miracles right now [Barack Obama anyone?]


    I have no comment yet but dont know why, but I am pulling for Chris.

  2. @temite youuu!!! i love him too and i'm not really a rihanna fan but we have to be open minded here, if he did it, no matter what she did then he deserves everything he's getting

  3. I'm just as flabbergasted at this as you are, but prior to this "confrontation" Chris B and Rihanna already had issues. Their relationship was said to be very "VOLATILE". Rihanna is a hot-head, she's very jealous, very controlling, very insecure. I'm also sorry, but I'm on Chris Browns side on this on. Can you imagine what Rihanna must have done to provoke that boy to do such? Breezy had had enough with her crazy ass! My ex boyf used to say if you put your hands on a man, you should expect whatever results from that! I'm not condoning men beating up women, but we as women, (especially in this country), like to taunt and provoke men because we know that they face dire consequences if they physically abuse them. Tell me if her ass was in Barbados she would have tried such nonsense? They would have killed her ass! The same as in know better than to go crazy on a guy.

    As a woman, she should have respected herself and kept her hands to her self instead of igniting issues and for things to end up the way they are now.

    *sorry for the long post*

  4. woah no its cool, i appreciate your thoughts on this. i see your point though but i just cant reconcile him doing that no matter what she said or did to him.

    thats just my view sha., though i think we're all getting physical confirmation of the saying that nothing is at it seems.

  5. i am with temite on this one! i know its rong but... ok thats just me hating rihanna.. he really messed up.. if not for anything.. his career was just going great.. well now i guess he shud just go back to school and forget about singing...but.. if u look at it, the backlash is only coming from corporate sponsors and the music industry...the people who buy the music r in support of chris so i wont be surprised of his career doesnt actualli go belly up!

  6. @zara u know consumers are just like sheep, if music execs say someone is finished they're just gonna follow suit

  7. i am in shock at kemberly's comments. are you for real??? so even if a woman is hot headed, why does that have to result to beating her up? and you shamelessly go as far as saying she won't try it in Barbados or naija - do you understand the implication of those words. naija men i suppose are beasts who beat up their women when provoked? what ever happened to self control. And why do you speak like you are certain she lashed out at him. You better be careful my dear, i pray for ur sake you don't have a man hit you just because yu ran your mouth widely... i presume you are of the timid, sheepish sort who smiles sweetly whenever ur man does something wrong. She might have provoked him (who knows) but it need not have escalated to violence esp. for one who grew up in a violent household and has openly spoken about it.

  8. its all craziness!!! im still waiting on the real full story to come out

  9. Man, the guy don enter serious wahala! It's sad, and if he really whooped her ass like that then that's a damn shame.
    Oh don't feel about about subscribing to TMZ, I'm a YBF addict. lol

  10. @anonymous i respect people's personal opinions and i expect everyone else to do the same. criticism is alright as long as it stays clean and insult free.

    @michelle, i can't wait either, its really weird he hasn't released a personal statement yet though. i guess we're just waiting on these kids to explain the craziness

    @mgbeke lol, i added ybf to my blog list after i saw it on your page

  11. Adaku....Anything is possible apparently. Heeeheee
