her label and management were completely dead set against this - it's why she put it putt out on a zshare link on twitter rather than them giving it a proper release on iTunes. She probably sees it as some great act of rebellion, with her and Chris star-crossed lovers battling against all odds, ugh.

Rated R wasn't what i had in mind with "sappy cathartic ballad"

some dude, Tuesday, 21 February 2012 16:18 (2 years ago) Permalink

mmm the last time i thought "this is career suicide" was when chris brown beat rihanna's face to a pulp so i'm not rushing to make any predictions here

i don't really get why anyone thinks this is going to seriously hurt Rihanna. y'all know how many #1s she's had in the past couple years, right?

some dude, Tuesday, 21 February 2012 16:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

because it's going to alienate many longtime fans?

the success of her music is SO completely divorced from whether people think she's a good or smart person or a role model or whatever

some dude, Tuesday, 21 February 2012 16:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

like this kind of thing would alienate Kelly Clarkson's fanbase, not Rihanna's

some dude, Tuesday, 21 February 2012 16:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah her celebrity is going to pull through this fine I think.

they are both going to come out of this with careers booming

at the risk of being repetitive:

I had never even heard of him prior to this beatdown thing and this has been such a media feeding-frenzy that of COURSE he is gonna have a comeback. Don't you guys pay any attention at all to how media narratives work? It goes - rise to stardom>>triumph>>fall from grace>>redemption/comeback

just because something happened and someone somewhere predicted it doesn't make it TOTALLY OBVIOUS AND PREDICTABLE

apparently CB missed out the "redemption" stage of that

Maybe for him redemption = sulking.

shakey that narrative is almost wholly about booze and drugs.

Critique of Pure Moods (goole), Tuesday, 21 February 2012 16:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

like, the fact that you hadn't even heard of Chris Brown before 2009 speaks to how tonedeaf you are to the whole cultural context of this whole thing and that your 'vindicated' accurate prediction was just a blind chicken finding a kernel of corn (xpost)

corn is delicious

he's in it right now, I'd say it probably started with that awful "Man in the Mirror" performance

eh I can think of some other non-booze-n-drugs examples (Polanski, Rob Lowe) but you do have the "almost" qualifier in there so yeah okay

man i really hope Charlie Sheen sings "Man In The Mirror" on BET in a couple years

what makes it totally predictable is the amount of money involved. industry wasn't gonna just let a cash-cow like this go down the drain without milking it.

max buzzword (Shakey Mo Collier), Tuesday, 21 February 2012 17:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

ah yes, that massive unstoppable cash cow you hadn't even heard of at that point

TERMAINTOR 2 (some dude), Tuesday, 21 February 2012 17:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

there's lots of cash cows I don't pay attention to

max buzzword (Shakey Mo Collier), Tuesday, 21 February 2012 17:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

for a short while it actually seemed somewhat like the industry was thinking about "replacing" him, if that's possible. they let jason derulo et al out of the gate not too long after the incident, no?

The woman, Christal Spann, and her friends followed Brown and rapper Tyga outside, where she saw him get into his black Bentley, according to a Miami Beach Police report. Spann approached Brown and took a photo with her $500 white iPhone 4S while he was sitting in his car.

Then the surly hip-hop star reached through the window, took her cell phone from her hands, and said, “B**** you ain’t going to put that on no website,” Spann told police.

a few times lately i've gotten annoyed at journalists referring to chris brown as a 'rapper' or 'hip-hop star' and then i remember "look at me now" and feel confused about whether i should still be mad

some dude, Thursday, 23 February 2012 20:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

if chris brown is going to clubs and driving himself home, there's still a small chance that he'll drive drunk and kill himself. so not all hope is lost.

Is this possibly a violation of his probation? It was 5 years, right? I hope so.

there's some story in superfreakonomics, which i was reading on teh toilet the other day, where they suggest drunk walking is more likely to get you killed than drunk driving, sadly

this fucking guy's comeuppance, when it happens and it WILL happen because he apparently cannot stop himself acting like the worst fucking cunt at all times, will be so sweet to watch

ha my roommate was listening to the freakonomics podcast last night and they were talking about this. it seems super flimsy to me, also as they pointed out you can't murder one or multiple innocent people if you're drunk walking
