Dear Chris Brown, Stop Getting Angry… Remember F.A.M.E.

Editorials

R&B Singer  and Performer Chris Brown had us all throwing our hands in the air yelling yeah, yeah, yeah, with the release of his new single.  Now he’s got us all shaking our head at these new headlines about his explosive anger display Tuesday in an ABC studio.

C. Breezy sat on his stool with his blonde hair, sleeveless shirt showing his sleeve tats, and skinny jeans and looked toward the audience as Good Morning American’s Robin Roberts asked him about his incident with Rhianna.

Brown had the perfect answer saying, “It’s not really a big deal to me now. … I think I’m past that in my life and today’s the album day.”  His deflecting back to his album was to cue Roberts in on he was there to talk about F.A.M.E. not Rhianna.

He later said he wanted people to focus on solely his music.  “This album is what I want them to talk about and not stuff that happened two years ago,” he said.

Well Brown, I must say shouting and allegedly throwing a chair through your dressing room window then ripping your shirt off like the hulk and leaving the studio was not the way to get people to focus.  People are definitely not talking about your album, but about how you have a temper and can lose control at an moment.

He later went on to tweet “I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t.”  

I agree with #teambreezy, Brown had every right to be upset.  Even though the show briefed him about the line of questioning beforehand, it is difficult to be forced to relieve the past.  He served his community service, and has been on the straight and narrow for the last two years.  Its safe to say he’s moved on.  Also, unlike Charlie Sheen he showed remorse and didn’t flaunt his situation for his own gain.

This comment caused a debate on The View where co-host Sherri Shepherd brought up the point that Chris Brown has been called a thug while neither Charlie Sheen nor Mel Gibson have been given such a titles even though they’ve had worse ordeals.  The underlying question is does race play a factor in this situation?  The answer, of course it does.  You can argue that Sheen was the highest paid actor earning $1.8 million an episode for Two and a Half Men and Mel Gibson is an accomplished actor, producer, director, and screen right but racial slurs, domestic violence and drug abuse have no limits to talent.  In the end Chris Brown is seen as young tatted up African American man known for singing, dancing and abusing his ex-girlfriend, which makes him a poster child for a thug.  And for that, he will never be winning.

All I can say to Chris Brown, is to stay focused.  You’ve worked hard to get where you are, so don’t let your emotions destroy all your efforts.  Take advice from your album “Don’t let ‘em bring you down no, The beauty is inside you, Don’t let ‘em bring you down, Cos you start your life today, Live any thoughts you’ve dreamed of!”

Remember why you did all this: F.A.M.E.  Forgive all your enemies because fans are your everything.
