I don't watch the Grammy's for a number of reasons, but if I was to pick one today, I'd probably say it was when a man who physically beat his girlfriend three years prior was allowed to perform after her, and then given an award.
Also, I don't read Huffington Post.
I don't read Huffington Post for a number of reasons, but if I was to pick one today, it would be because of a poll asking you to decided whose dance set was best, Rihanna's or Chris Brown's? I mean, why not go the whole hog and ask the readers to decide which Rihanna dance set was better: the ones she gave before Chris Brown beat her in a car park, or the ones after he had beaten her in a car park?
You know the thing here?
I don't even like Rihanna or Chris Brown's music. It's absolute trash.
But even I find the fact that a man who had beaten his partner being placed in a spotlight, given an award, and presented as a positive figure to people who would buy and like his music, offensive.
Here's the Police Report of the incident so that, when you think of Chris Brown, you can think of this:
“Christopher B and Robyn F have been involved in a dating relations for approx 1 and half year. On Sunday Feb 8 at 25 hours Brown was driving a vehicle with Robyn F as the front passenger on an unknown street in Los Angeles. Robyn F picked brown,s cellular phone and picked up a three-page text message from a woman Brown had had a previous relationship with.
“A verbal argument ensued and Brown pulled a vehicle over in an unknown street. Reach over Robyn F with his right hand and open the car door and attempted to force her out. Brown was unable to force Robyn F out of the vehicle because she was wearing a seat belt. When he could not force her to exit he took his right hand and shoved her head against the passenger window of the vehcile causing an approx 1 inch raised circular contusion.
“Robyn F turned to face Brown and punched her in the left eye with right hand. He then drove away in the vehicle and continued to punch her in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand. The assault caused Robyn F Osmouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle. Brown looked at Robyn F and stated “I am going to beat the s–t out of you when we get home! You wait and see!?
“Robyn F picked her cellular phone and called her personal assistant Jennifer Rosales. Rosales did not answer the telephone but while her vm greeting was playing Robyn F pretended to talk to her and stated “I am on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there? (this statement was made while greeting was playing and was not captured) after Robyn f faked the call, Brown and looked at her and stated, ‘You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I really am going to kill you.’
“Brown resumed punching Robyn F and she interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face. She then bent over at the waist placing her elbows and face near her lap and in attempt to protect her face and head from the barrage of punches being levied by Brown.
