Everybody has an opinion on this love triangle that just was turned into a two-point line in the wee hours of the morning thanks to Chris Brown’s Suburban confessional posted on his Mechanical Dummy blog.
*sighs* Where do I even begin?
First: those who are celebrating the reunion of Chris and Rihanna are … touched. One – what does them engaging in things grown folks do REALLY have to do with the progression of your life to where you’re praising the high heavens for them being together? Seriously; did you have a pool going or something because if monetary gain isn’t the reason for your glee then what the hell is?
Second: let’s take away the celebrity/public figure aspect of this entire thing, so people can understand the anger some have over this.
Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Boy and girl have a falling out and ultimately break up. Boy goes through the motions – lives fast by partying and hooking up with random women. Boy meets new girl. Boy dates new girl. FOR TWO YEARS boy dates new girl. Boy falls in love with new girl (?) New girl falls in love with boy. New girl is the object of ridicule for loving boy. New girl still loves boy. Boy secretly yearns for girl. Boy eventually reconnects with girl but continues with new girl. New girl is called ten kinds of dumb for dealing with boy and his “alleged discretions” but stands by him. Boy “decides to be single” … then takes girl to a concert. Boy tells everybody he’s in love with two people and doesn’t want to hurt either… but hurts new girl by choosing girl over her.
Honestly, this is the same shit that usually happens over all four years of high school and probably spilled over into college. The popular guy who could have anybody he wanted meets this normal girl who wasn’t bothering anybody. He says, “hey, you seem cool. let’s discuss somethin’.” She says, “i’m down”, and so it begins. Popular guys have their groupies and groupies get salty when they see the object of their affection involved with someone and – surprise, surprise – he’s actually committed to her. As a result, they down his girl by calling her out of her name, questioning her authenticity and bringing up the past while she’s trying to maintain her relationship as any woman in love strives to do.
I’m not “mad” at Chris Brown; Continue reading
