I’m not okay with Chris Brown performing at the Grammys
I stumbled across Hello Giggles a couple of weeks ago when I was
stalking researching Zooey Deschanel. Hello Giggles is an entertainment site aimed at women, a project started by Zooey and her friends Sophia Rossi and Molly McAller.
On initial look it seemed like a lovely site, but I didn’t see the impact that the “aimed at women” tag had, that was until I saw this article in my facebook feed today: I’m Not Okay with Chris Brown Performing at the Grammys.
I was not particularly well versed with Chris Brown, or Rihanna’s music before the Grammys three years ago, that was probably the first time I had heard of Chris Brown. However, the article above summarises well what happened, and one thing that really shocked me was the Grammys response that is quoted. The response that suggests that the Grammys were the victim in the situation. The Grammy’s were the victim!
Moving on from that bombshell, there are some comments at the bottom of the article that make the good point that if Rihanna has forgiven Chris Brown for what happened then so should the rest of the world. But I agree with the writer, this isn’t about forgiveness, this is about associating with someone who has this on their record. I for one will not associate. I will not buy the music, and I will not watch the performance. I’m not okay with Chris Brown performing at the Grammys.
