Chris Brown and Rihanna Are Sick of Talking About The Fight, but is America?
Wow! Chris Brown finally has a chance to come back in the limelight...for good, and he lets his anger get the best of him...AGAIN. I know we all heard about the reports of Chris Brown's meltdown on Good Morning America (in an attempt to promote his new album F.A.M.E.) following a series of uncomfortable questions posed by interviewer Robin Roberts. I'm pretty sure Brown's media camp specifically urged Ms. Roberts not to ask any "Rihanna" questions and her constant probing at the issue might have caught him off guard. He seemed ill-prepared to answer any questions on Rihanna, but for some reason I feel like his PR team failed him to a certain degree. That is, unless this whole fiasco was a ploy to increase record sales (*wink*). Whatever the case may be, somehow Chris Breezy has put that unfortunate Grammy night from 2009 behind him and clearly would like the rest of the world to do the same.
I recently read on Bitchie Life that Rihanna also got "feisty" with an interviewer for a recent magazine cover interview. She apparently doesn't want to talk about the debacle anymore either. Which brings on my burning question for my readers. Are Chris and Rihanna right in refusing to talk about the incident? Do you feel they owe us, the public, more of an explanation or that they should be open to addressing the issue in every public forum known to man? Is it their right, as public figures, to refuse to answer questions about it anymore?
I don't know about you, but I think Rihanna probably has more right than Chris to refuse to answer questions. My concern is why must they both cop attitudes when this topic is brought up? Do they not know that whether they have gotten over it or moved past the situation, the general public has not? Are they not aware that this issue will be looming over their goregous pop star heads for years to come, if not forever? Do you think the public would be willing to let it go if they both were more forthcoming about the past?
I'm currently at a loss for words from Chris' actions. I feel like he was definitely on his Road To Redemption Redemption Song: Diddy-Dirty Money feat. Chris Brown in Yesterday (see my earlier post on the subject) but has now fallen several steps back. We all understand that the celebrity life is hard work, both physically and emotionally and this life often can take a toll on the strongest of individuals. However, the life of a pop star is chosen. So, if you can't take the heat....you know the rest....
