Chris Brown’s Finally Cool With Beating Rihanna Up, And It’s Like What Took You So Long Buddy!?

In an incredibly long overdue statement today, Chris Brown finally forgave himself for beating Rihanna’s face into a bloody pulp before the 2009 Grammys. Which is such a relief because I’ve worried about him ever since that fateful night when he accidentally used his fist to pummel her face for several minutes. Look, accidents happen. Sometimes you forget to pick up milk at the store. And sometimes you almost kill people with your hands.

Who are we to judge him for a mistake he made when he was only 18-years-old. It’s not until you’re at least 19-and-a-half, that you start to realize that punching someone in the face isn’t the best way to resolve an argument. Would you ask a baby to walk moments after being born? No. So why do people think Chris Brown should’ve known better at 18? Hey do me a favor real quick? Look up unfair in the dictionary. Did this photo show up?

I thought it would. Despite being generous enough to forgive all his enemies shortly after it happened, people still wanted him to do more. Like make some kind of big public statement that he was not only sorry for what he did, but after lots of help, he now understood that what he did was wrong and never, ever okay. “Something to help his many young fans realize that domestic abuse is never okay,” the so-called “good” people said. But did they care about Chris Brown? Did they ever once ask him if he’s cool with how things went down that night. If he’s ready to put this fight behind him and move on with his career? No, I can say with authority that they did not. Luckily for us, Chris Brown moved on without their approval. But can you imagine what the world would’ve lost if he taken any time to show remorse. The misogynistic lyrics that would’ve never gotten heard? Ugh, my heart hurts just thinking about it.

For so many years, like at least three, people tried to hold him back for one small murderous moment. It’s not like she died. She just looked a little worse for the wear.

Ever since that incident, he’s gotten punished by people with “morals” who seem to think it’s their place to criticize him for savagely beating up his girlfriend. Last time I checked, there was only one God. And that God puts “dance” way above “general regard for human decency.” So let all these false deities who walk around saying that he’s an unrepentant sociopath put away their soapboxes.

Lest he follow through on his recent threat to retire and deprive us his talent. Then where will we be America? Stuck with musical artists who put people first and art second? I would rather die than live in a world like that.

  • Trina

    I like Chris Brown’s music. Don’t Wake Me Up and With You are two of my fave songs ever! I hope this next album is good if its his last.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      That says a lot about you my dear.

  • Julia

    Man Rihanna ruined this guys life. Sorry it had to be him. I feel bad for Chris.

    • Martin K

      Wow. People will just find ANY reason to blame a woman. HE beat her up Julia. HE did. She did nothing. In fact, she didn’t even WANT to press charges. Jesus.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      I think she was being ironic.

    • Julia

      No I wasn’t! Rihanna really tried to kill this guys career.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Well wouldn’t you if you had your face bashed in like that!

    • Jenni

      In what ways did Rihanna try to kill Chris Brown’s career?

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      I would say he tried to kill her career. Bashing in an entertainer’s face would about do it.

    • Julia

      She tries to get sympathy from people by always talking about it in interviews. And she always talks about what happens when she has a new album or single.

    • Julia

      How do you know?

  • Debbie Bashford

    He is a douche bag and will always be a douche bag, he thinks he is above the law and should not be held accountable because he is famous. all his little temper trantrums should be ignored. I do not listen to his music, if he is on a show I change the channel. He is not sorry for what he did, does or will do. I will not be surprised if he doesn’t end up in jail in the future.

  • Anisa

    How long are we going to hang this over his head? I’m not a fan of his, but god, I don’t hear people bringing up the ‘Madonna-beating’ whenever they write an article about Sean Penn! Or how John Lennon beat his wife whenever they talk about how brilliant he was.

    I know he is annoying, and I wouldn’t miss him if he retired, but the asshole was 18, he made a mistake – albeit a fucked up one – but a mistake nonetheless.

    • Jenni

      I don’t really understand how physically hurting someone over an extended period of time is a mistake. That’s a choice.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      There is an Other who is complicit.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Well we or rather I didn’t see Madonna all bashed in the face like Rihanna.

    • Lydia

      I’ll forgive him when he stops making excuses about it and acting like HE is the victim.

  • MCR

    We have to learn to distinguish between someone being “good” as an artist and “good” as a human being. They are two completely different things, and may or may not coexist. Read A Clockwork Orange. Or the biography of any deceased artist chosen at random.
    This man seems to be an intelligent, talented sociopath.

    • Jenni

      Yes, but I think when you’re not good as a human being, you no longer get to be showcased as an artist — no matter how talented you may be.

    • MCR

      Just to be clear, I wasn’t suggesting that being talented excuses assault and battery, misogyny, or lack of remorse for either. I was objecting to the comments of certain fans who feel producing enjoyable music gives him a free pass. He may simply be a hateful, dangerous person who also has some musical talent.
