Chris Brown is a foul-mouthed, self-destructive mess. The troubled Grammy Award-winning singer is in trouble again. He spent the weekend in a Washington, D.C. jail for allegedly punching a guy in the face and he could go to prison if a judge determines that Brown violated his probation stemming from his assault on Rihanna, his ex-girlfriend, in 2009. Brown hasn’t changed his ways; he just changes who he punches. He is a menace to society and a danger to himself.
How long will recording company executives tolerate Brown’s irrational behavior before they consider cutting him loose? He’s a public relations nightmare and his talent doesn’t excuse his violent lifestyle. How long before Brown seriously injures someone in a fight? Is it really worth repeated arrests and being incarcerated? I wonder if Brown just doesn’t care that he is spiraling out of control — or whether he is completely unable to control his anger.
This past weekend, police charged Brown with felony assault outside the W Hotel in downtown DC. – a serious allegation that could compound Brown’s legal troubles. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday morning for arraignment. This bad-boy image has played out. Brown has rage issues. He’s a violent man. The law knows it. His fans know it. And, I assume, his mother knows it, too.
Brown is gifted, but he’s not smart. He refuses to grasp this simple concept: He can’t go around punching people whenever he wants and wherever he wants. And for some unexplained reason, Brown feels he is above the law. Brown’s latest violent outburst happened Sunday morning. According to the DC police report, Isaac Adams Parker, 20, of Beltsville, Maryland, was trying to sneak into a photo being taken of Brown.
Brown allegedly told Parker “I’m not into that gay s**t” and “I feel like boxing.” He then allegedly punched Parker in the face. Christopher Hollosy, reported to be Brown’s bodyguard, stepped in between Brown and Parker, and Hollosy also allegedly punched Parker in the face. Hollosy was also arrested. Brown, who is now 24, is a grown man and he needs to start acting like one. I don’t know if his mother gives him the advice he needs or whether Brown ignores it.
But I do know this: If Brown continues down this dangerous path, he could wind up in prison for a long time because he has such disdain for the law. Here’s what Brown said about the community service he was ordered to complete after a recent hit-and-run violation. “”Community service, that sh** is a bitch. I’ll be honest – and you can quote me on that. …For me, I think it’s more of a power trip for the DA. I can speak freely now, because I don’t really care what they say about it, but as far as, like, the 1,000 extra hours they gave me, that’s totally fricking bananas.”
Brown never completed his community service. Sadly, he may never learn how to live a civil existence unless he hits rock bottom. Meanwhile, his rap sheet – and his reputation as brutal knucklehead — is growing fast. He was involved in a 2001 fight with singer Drake at a New York nightclub. He also fought with singer Frank Ocean and others during an argument about a parking space outside of a recording studio in Los Angeles. Brown pleaded guilty to one count of felony assault and received five years probation.
Brown is due back in court Nov. 20 in Los Angeles to update a judge on his probation. Prosecutors could seek a revocation of his probation after his arrest in D.C. Brown had several options this weekend to avoid trouble. If the story is correct and Parker did jump in the photo, then so what? Instead of fighting, Brown could have simply walked away. He could have walked back into the W hotel and let his bodyguard handle the situation. After all, that’s what Brown pays bodyguards to do.
After his arrest for beating up Rihanna in 2009, Brown wrote a controversial song called “Changed Man.”
I’m a changed man
‘Cause you mean that much to me
And I don’t wanna be done
I’m doing all that I can
And everybody hates Chris
They can never understand
Brown is right. I don’t understand. I don’t understand his violent tendencies. I don’t understand how he can beat up a woman. I don’t understand why he continues to self-destruct. But he’s certainly a changed man: He’s gone from bad to worse.
