Let's take a moment....

Let me start off by saying that in spite of the obvious, Chris Brown is one of the best R&B singers to hit the industry in a very long while.  Lil' Chris can out sing any seasoned performer any day of the week and that's one thing I am sure of.  With that being said, I would like to take a quick moment to discuss a couple of things that are bothering me about Chris Brown. 

First and foremost, what the crap is the deal with this Terminator-Meets-The Matrix-SpaceJam album cover?!  Who's idea was this and why hasn't that person been fired?  What's really sad about this album cover is that it is an indication that Chris Brown has no friends.  Real friends don't let friends do things like this.  When celebrities get blacklisted by the media and a large population of fans things like this happen.  They forget how to make good music and how to dress.

I mean, I don't even know what's going on here.  The album is called, Graffiti, and the only thing that has anything to do with graffiti is the spray can in his left hand.  What's even worse is that he's not using that spray can to tag a wall or a subway train.  Furthermore, what's with the cartoon characters?  Why, why, why?  I have to believe that Chris didn't see this cover before it got approved and put out to the masses.  I have to believe he found out about it the same way I did; walking down the Lower East Side on an otherwise beautiful day and for a split second thinking that Hollywood had put out a new vampire movie.  I stopped to stare at it and I felt like Russell Crowe in, A Beautiful Mind, trying to crack a code that didn't really exist.

Don't even get me started on the outfit, guitar, the look on his face, and the fact that he's on a space ship to the moon.

This same thing is happening to R.Kelly.  Don't even get me started on this.  I mean, what's even going on here?

NOTE:  I like how when celebrities lose their minds they automatically go for a look that makes it seem like they're 20 years in the future. 

Furthermore, the media is giving too much coverage to Chris Brown's women-bashing issues.  I just saw a report on CNN.com about how Chris Brown has resorted to deleting his Twitter page.  I'd post a link, but I don't want to contribute traffic to such a ridiculous news story.

MY ADVICE TO CHRIS BROWN: BE STILL.  Dude, just sit somewhere in a room, count your money, and don't come out for a year.  I promise that after a year our attention will be diverted to a sports icon who has cheated on his wife; or on the new line of Mac computers; or on $5 cups of coffee; or on whatever Obama is doing.  After a year you can show your face, put out a song or two and you'll be welcomed with open arms.  Just make sure that the music sounds good and nothing like the last three lumps of cow droppings that you've put out recently.

 

I got your back, Chris!
