Breezy, who will perform at the BET Awards tonight, caught my attention this week when he tweeted, “Latching on to my every word and criticizing makes you look thirsty. I can’t even p–s without somebody complaining. Imagine how I feel. A person should not have to apologize every second for living life!”
The man is right. No one should have to feel sorry for living life, but no one in the public eye should be doing things that call for an apology–actually SEVERAL apologies–in the first place.
And this is where it starts to really strike my nerves. You see, when Chris Brown burst on the scene, we were salivating over the young hottie’s charming smile, buttery voice, and Michael Jackson-esque dance moves. He started off as a teenage heartthrob, but from day one, we were rooting for the kid, hoping he’d be a Black star with real longevity and not another one-hit wonder.
But then he turned into a bad boy. A reeeeeealy bad boy. Since his domestic dispute with RiRi, it seems like his name is always in the headlines, but for all the wrong reasons. I can admit that I have no idea what kind of pressure it must be to have the whole world watching your every move, but it still seems that things would be a whole lot easier for Chris if he just cleaned up his act.
The man is a triple-threat. He can sing, dance, and act. He’s been given an opportunity that a lot of talented young people can only dream of, and I’d hate for his entire career to be overshadowed by his out-of-control temper.
The bottom line is if Chris wants to stop having to apologize, he needs to stop doing things he will need to apologize for.
