There is no doubt that she made some wrong decisions in her life, but it made me mad that that was the first thing most people think of when they heard about her death. "It must have been drugs," they say. Why can't people just wait for the coroner's report, which just said that there was no foul play?
And while we are mourning a singer who has been through an abusive and drug-laced relationship, Chris Brown is performing at the Grammy's. I should not even have to explain why it is fooked up that he performed at the Grammy's, with Rihanna in the line-up as well, and just 3 years after he committed a crime for which he did not even serve jail time.
Why don't I give him a second chance? Because in order for me to believe you're sorry, you have to stay apologetic, even when people bring it up again. It's a crime you have committed; don't expect people to forget it, even though we might give you props for doing "Look At Me Now." (of which the best part was really Busta Rhymes's rap, not yours!) If you need more convincing, read this Hello Giggles article or look at this list of disturbing tweets and posts.
Chris Brown is the reason why I did not watch the Grammy's and missed Adele performing live. But I finally saw a clip of her performance this morning, and you know what? Adele makes everything better.
What's your opinion of the Chris Brown controversy? And did you spend your weekend in a 90s haze listening to replays of "I Will Always Love You"?
