In case you’ve been living under a rock for ten years, Chris Brown and Rihanna are hip-hop and pop musicians who used to date. They were a very high profile couple in 2009 and kids in my school pretended to be them in the playground on a pretty regular basis, that’s how big they were. Little white Rihanna and Chris Brown’s nibbling on their Turkey Twizzlers. Loves young dream, it all came crashing down when Chris was arrested for assaulting Rihanna before the 2009 Grammys and photos were shared online of her injuries.
Surprisingly, Chris has continued to have a successful career with a string of huge hits despite pretty publicly assaulting his girlfriend. It turns out people don’t seem to care that much if you’re a domestic abuser but you’re also attractive and talented... great. Rihanna has been vocal about the fact she considers the feud to have been put to bed, and actually misses him from her life because they were such best friends. Now Chris has had a successful career, but nothing on the same scale as his ex-girlfriend. Rihanna is one of the best-selling artists of all time with 230 million records sold worldwide, and has four platinum selling albums. She’s one of the biggest names in pop, which makes Chris’s tweet even weirder.
Just thinking.... A CRAZY WORLD TOUR would BEYONCE, RIHANNA, BRUNO MARS, CHRIS BROWN. “2 for 2”. And if y’all decide to do it without me... give me 10%. 😏— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) February 9, 2018
Chris Brown took to Twitter yesterday to say how awesome a tour would be between Beyonce, Rihanna and Bruno Mars. We’re fully on board, this would be an amazing tour. But he also wants top billing for the gig, literally mentioning himself in the same breath as those three legends... no, honey. Fans have taken to Twitter to laugh Chris into next year, with one user going straight in with a blunt “You’re not on their level”, a protective Rihanna fan telling him to “Stay away from Robyn” and another writing “Replace Chris Brown with Drake and we lit”. We couldn’t agree more.
