Chris Brown has taken up a lot of column inches both in print and online over the past couple of years - the vast majority of which are centred around how generally repulsive he is as a human being. Last night's Grammy Awards provided the latest such reason to point fingers at Brown, after Frank Ocean won a Grammy. Confused? Follow me to paragraph two, won't you?
You may be aware of the recent spat involving Frank Ocean and Brown over a parking space at a Los Angeles recording studio, a disagreement which apparently included Brown threatening to produce a gun on Ocean, before settling the issue with his fists (as he is wont to do).
Speaking about the incident on Twitter, Ocean said: "As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man. But as a man I am not a killer. I’m an artist and a modern person. I'll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. Peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace."
The feud between the two can be traced back to tweets between the pair in which Ocean took exception to comparisons of Ocean made by Brown, to which Ocean responded by comparing Brown to Ike Turner.
Fast forward to last night: both Brown and Ocean are nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album at the Grammys. Ocean wins for Channel Orange. The only person on camera not giving a standing ovation? You guessed it.
Oh Chris Brown, you are a tool of the absolute highest proportions.
