Disgusting waste of a human being Chris Brown has deleted his twitter account after a swarm of people descended upon him for more disgusting, misogynistic, abusive behavior.
Here’s the story: Brown tweeted a picture of himself along with the comment, “I look old as fuck! I’m only 23…” to which twitter comedian Jenny Johnson replied, “I know! Being a worthless piece of shit can really age a person!” This sparked off a twitter battle between the two that included Brown stating that he wanted to fart whilst engaging in sexual activities with Johnson as well as “…not shart in your mouth, wanted me to shit right on the retina, …#pinkeye”.
Well, his words got so heated and disgusting that he tried to delete his statements, not wanting his vile words accessible to the public. However, it was already too late in that many websites were reporting on this event along with photos of the exchange. So, what did Brown do next? He deleted his account.
It should be stated that deactivating your account can be undone within 30 days, so he and his 17 million followers might very well be back. But this is a bit of a victory for people who are disgusted with Brown and his complete lack of remorse, his narcissism, his disconnect with reality, and basically a ton of other reasons. So, until he pops back onto the twitterverse, good riddance. READ MORE
These are the things that make me love people. On Nov. 19th, Chris Brown is scheduled to play Stockholm, Sweden at the Ericsson Globe, which seats approximately 16,000 for concerts. However, not everyone is thrilled by the prospect of an egotistical, unapologetic woman beater playing their city.
An unnamed person/group has taken to putting up advertisements for the concert with a large picture of Rihanna‘s brutally bruised and beaten face as a reminder of the actions of Brown two and a half years ago. According to Gawker, this person/these people are part of a larger group that wants the concert canceled. The posters that are being put all over town can be seen below (Warning: It’s still not easy to look at).
Sweden’s official Twitter account (which is run by a different citizen each week) posted the following statement: “In Stockholm people are showing their dislike that Chris Brown is coming to town by posting these posters.”
It’s things like this that make me believe in people. If this bastard can win Grammys two years after basically publicly beating a woman, and then show pretty much no remorse whatsoever, he deserves to have it shoved in his face every chance possible. You can see my own personal rant against Mr. Woman Beater right here. READ MORE
It’s nearing that time again when the music industry collectively pat each other on the backs and present awards to artists who already have shelves devoted to little statues that they earned based on record sales and not any sort of artistic merit. Yup, I’m talking about the AMAs (American Music Awards). But, before we get our panties in a bunch, let’s actually look at what the AMAs were created for. You see, according to a press release, Dick Clark created the AMAs in 1973 as a means of paying “…tribute to popular musicians from various genres of music and to put audiences in touch with the latest phenomena in American music. Since its founding, the AMAs have honored and showcased the talents of some of the biggest names in the music industry.”
So, I’m left scratching my head. Why even create such an event? What is the purpose? I mean, aside from the collective back patting and sycophantic groveling that I mentioned above, is there a point to these shows? Well, obviously ratings. People are gonna tune in to see over-the-top performances (where their favorite artist will no doubt be lip syncing) so they can gush about them to their friends via Facebook and Twitter (who talks on a phone anymore, right?). It’s also a status symbol: “My favorite artist won an award, meaning that he/she/they HAVE to be respected and lauded!”
Whatever. As per my thoughts on ANY award ceremony, I don’t think they do a damn thing. The only people that tune in are those that have a vested interest. No one that is seeking avenues to find new music will even consider watching. What’s the point? They’ve already heard it all before.

Music is kind of like Four Loko. There are a bunch of different flavors and teenagers love it. It also shares the tendency to evoke this sort of statement out of people; “It was better back in the day though, when I first had it,” (you know, before they took out all the caffeine). It’s true, these days it seems like music, or at least popular music, has lost its edge entirely. Gone are the days of sneaking records with “Parental Advisory/Explicit Content” plastered across the cover into your room and the days of mindlessly singing along to the latest saccharine sweet single while your mom drives you home from school are in full swing. Where is all the door slamming? Where are all the secret shows? It used to be that songs on the radio carried some sort of message, but now all I hear are lyrics about whips, b*tches, peacocks and all other sorts of bizarre metaphors for genitalia. And that’s if there are even words at all! Half of that sh*t is all “wobble” these days (whatever that is). Rebellion seems to have fizzled out, and in its place a taste for countless remixes, “womps”, and repetitive, dirty lyrics has grown. But no one bats an eyelash. It just seems like the passion, the demand for excellence has died. It’s like the teen masses have lost their will to act out, at least when it comes to music. These days, we sure as hell aren’t your stepping stone. But we’re not likely to make a hit single out of that sentiment either. READ MORE
Okay, it’s gotten to the point where I can’t be silent anymore. F*ck Chris Brown. Seriously, what an utter waste. I didn’t write anything when it came out that he beat Rihanna. I kept quiet after his performance at the Grammy Awards. Both of them. I even kept a lid on it when two (!!!) remixes came out featuring the two together. But thinking about it, I feel that this is something I need to get off my chest. So, here we go…
“To me, this award means a lot because it shows that the human element of making music is what’s most important. Singing into a microphone and learning to play and instrument and learning to do your craft, that’s the most important thing for people to do. It’s not about being perfect, it’s not about sounding absolutely correct, it’s not about what goes on in a computer. It’s about what goes on in here (points to heart) and it’s about what goes on in here (points to head).” – Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters
Shortly after Dave Grohl gave the above acceptance speech at the 2012 Grammy Awards, he and his band, Foo Fighters, played alongside David Guetta, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, and Deadmau5. Three of those four are very guilty of blatant autotune use while Deadmau5 is an electronic artist whose musical work completely relies upon his knowledge of computers and computerized music. Therefore, he gets a pass. But still, there is this lingering stench of hypocrisy.
