Ariana Grande May Cancel That Duet With Chris Brown, So You Did A Good Job For Once, Internet

Ariana Grande rehearsing with Chris Brown in Instagram photo March 2014I don’t want to get your hopes up, internet, but you might be back in my good graces for a second.

In between all the racism and the vile comments, you created enough backlash about the Ariana Grande and Chris Brown duet that you may have gotten her team to completely call it off. Congratulations! But don’t let it go to your head. I’m sure you’ll be railing at me again by mid-afternoon.

In case you need an update on this story, Chris posted an Instagram of the two of them in a dance rehearsal about three weeks ago, which Ariana re-posted with his username tagged and the hashtag #comingsoon. And thennnn everybody got really bummed out, including us. We were so grossed out by the fact that she’d want to work with him that we didn’t even write about it. We’re just tired of jumping up and down reminding people that Chris tried to beat Rihanna to death in 2009, only to see him get nominated for Grammys, rack in amazing artist collaborations, sell out concerts, and just generally refuse to take responsibility for a single mistake, y’know?

But good for you, internet! Especially you, Arianators! You had our back on this one, and you made so much noise about it that you actually forced her team to reconsider! All they’ve done for now is delay, and then maybe reschedule, but it’s a huge step in the right direction that people are actually considering this from all angles.

Again, this might not be about his past, like I’m hoping, and may be more about the fact that he was kicked out of his rehab program and arrested, but a girl can dream, okay? Especially because Ariana’s tweet makes it sound like she knows it’s controversial, and even if she’s just in the back seat, I’m just thrilled she’s no longer at the wheel driving straight at this thing.

    We all know what happened to Chris Brown. He’s going to be away for a while.

    Ugh, maybe I’m just a really cynical person but I’m not that willing to applaud her. From her tweet it sounds like it’s not being cancelled, just pushed back. And from the pic she retweeted/her tweet it doesn’t really come across like she’s that bothered about working with him, since she’s “just taking the backseat” and letting her team tell her what to do.

      Yeah, I think you’re right. But I’ll take what I can get if it means fewer artists working with him. From what I’ve read of her interviews lately, she’s not the most realistic or aware person, so I’m not surprised she has no issue working with him. Just glad her management team seems to have stepped in.

    people need to chill out about Chris Brown What he did to Rihanna wasn’t right, but he’s publicly apologised for it and people keep bringing it up. it’s like when you do something bad and your mum brings it up every time you disobey her. we need to find other reasons to hate him bc right now, it just seems like he’s hated for a dead fish.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      As long as he publicly apologized for attempted murder, I’m sure everything’s fine.

  • Deirdre

    *abuse is wing and i’m not condoning it. it just makes me sad that this guy doesn’t have a second chance at life like the rest of us.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      He has yet to serve any time for the crime, so what behavior of his specifically do you feel has earned him a second chance?

  • Deirdre

    *wrong omg

    I was really disappointed that she agreed to collaborate with him. I hope he doesn’t ruin her career. She’s just getting started & she’s so talented.

  • Deirdre

    I don’t know if it’s changed or not, but the past should just be the past. He apologised and you don’t have to let it go and everything’s NOT fine, but what is bringing it up going to do? I don’t even like the guy and yes, his behaviour these past few years has been pretty reckless but that doesn’t have anything to do with what he should be given for (especially for what he’s done in the past).

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      As long as apologies are all it takes, let’s give everybody in the prison system a call and say they’re free to go! Everyone will be thrilled!

  • srsly

    just stop.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Agreed, Chris Brown should just stop.
