“Shout, shout, let it all out…”
Chris Brown is singing his story loud and proud. For, in light of ample speculation surrounding his personal life, the stage blazer has released a video professing his love for both Rihanna and ex-Karrueche Tran.
Drunk in the back of his car, the professionally edited confessional features a somewhat coherent Brown confirming Rihanna as the reason for his break-up with Tran and that it’s unfair to put the latter in such a position.
Chris Brown tells all after the jump…
Granted it’s great to see Chris pull the plug on the rumors and address his “truth” head-on, we’re a little puzzled by the clip. As one who’s campaigned so fiercely to be left alone by the media, there’s a lot to be said for him “put it all out there”.
From our vantage point, there should be no moaning moving forward about violated privacy if video’s like these are the route he’s treading on. Indeed, artists should either do a Jay-Z and Beyonce and keep it zipped, letting the talent do the talking (ala Old Skool Hollywood) or be prepared to spill that Lipton at any given time. Sadly, the latter seems to reflect the New Skool way of staying in the limelight – the personal is the professional and vice versa; which spotlights how convenient the timing of all of this is.
We doubt the clip arriving the day after Rihanna’s new album ‘Seven’ was confirmed was any coincidence. Whatever it takes for those headlines, aye? Let’s just hope she returns the favour come time for Chris to release new material.
