Chris Brown: Inspirational Singer or Part-Time Criminal?

By Aalayah Bennett

“I did everything I was suppose to do during the so called hit n run, I provided the correct info. There were no injuries or damages. C’mon!!”,

“I Try To Promote Positivity and Love”, Brown says though his actions tell a whole other story.

stated the 24 year-old entertainer Chris Brown via Twitter on July 15th, one day before having his probation revoked by a judge due to hit-and-run charges.

Brown is more of a criminal than a performer nowadays, which is a disappointment since he started as America’s teen heartthrob but the “popular” singer is now only popular for having an extensive criminal history. He was hit with a misdemeanor charge for a minor accident but to make matters worse, the controversial singer was driving without a valid license. If he a judge finds that he has violated his probation, Brown faces 4 years in prison.

Brown also has the bad boy attitude down pact since he was recorded yelling at a valet over a measly $10 service charge in March of 2013. “We gon’ turn this whole spot up”, says the six foot musician while with six other large men to the small valet. The video spread like wildfire across many entertainment blogs, which doesn’t make it any better, since he is known for having anger management issues and being known as an infamous woman beater due to the 2009 assault on then-girlfriend singer Rihanna.

“I haven’t been as mature and thought out in the past, so, me growing now, it’s showing my progression”, he says to XXL Magazine in 2012.

During an interview for CNN by Larry King in 2009, Brown says “I’m in shock, because, first of all, that’s not who I am as a person… I can’t believe that that actually happened,” and admits that he still loves the singer.

The bittersweet irony at it’s finest. Yes, because we all know when you love someone you punch him or her in the face repeatedly. How idiotic can one be?

It has been difficult for the young star to reclaim his career and to be the seemingly kind person he used to be but now we know that ship has sailed. Why should the singer even try to revive his ailing reputation? He obviously does not care. In June of 2012, Brown had a brawl with Canadian rapper-singer Drake in NYC, which ended in the destruction of the SoHo nightclub W.I.P., and lawsuits against both.

In an interview with Billboard magazine in March of 2013, the singer said, “When we were doing “Fortune”, I had another concept for my next album. It was “Carpe Diem” – about seizing the day, living in the moment.” He may have lived in the moment too much as he was accused of knocking a woman down after his show at an Orange Country nightclub in June. The alleged victim, Deanna Gines, states the assault was so violent, she may need surgery for torn ligaments in her right knee.

Many hope things will get better for the singer but you can only have faith in him for so long. A good question about Brown overall would be, “How does one get away with such outrageous crimes?” Easy, become a popular singer and hopefully the law won’t “Take You Down”.
