If there’s anything that can make Chris Brown look more ridiculous, everybody here at Manolith is in full support of it.
Thankfully like a form of pop culture herpes, Chris is the gift that keeps on giving. And between bitching at retailers for not selling enough copies of his CD, being banned from traveling in Europe, and giving a ton of pity interviews that he’s given us many moments to reflect on the obvious fact that maybe the people we are giving a ton of money to sing and dance aren’t exactly the most interesting people. Or intelligent.
So Chris Brown decided to try to use Michael Jackson’s death as a way to get positive publicity for himself. He must have a brilliant publicist, and by brilliant, I mean a man who is paid to sit in a room and hit himself with a hammer.
People say Chris Brown stole the BET awards, but really, if doing a year-old tribute to a pop star is a way of stealing award shows, then we’ve set the bar way too low. Enjoy Chris Brown. And his salty, Chris Brown tears. If a song and dance number can make everyone forget about domestic violence, then they should incorporate it into the next season of Dancing With The Stars.
