Chris Brown Actually Says Something Intelligent About Ray Rice, Anger & Bottling Up Your Feelings

Chris Brown Ray Rice
"It'll Bottle Up And You'll Become A Monster"

“I think it’s all about the choices you make. With me, I deal with a lot of anger issues from my past – not knowing how to express myself verbally and at the same time not knowing how to cope with my emotions and deal with them and understand what they are. So I think help is great. I still talk to my therapist twice a week, and it helps me to…if I’m frustrated and I’m dealing with something, to vent and say what I’m going through so I can hear from an actual clinical person, ‘this is how you should react,’ or ‘it’s good to feel this way’ because feelings, emotions, and energy are supposed to come and go. It’s not supposed to stay there, you’re not supposed to keep it inside, because it’ll bottle up and you’ll become a monster. For me, dealing with my anger issues and understanding myself and the life I’ve been through, where I’m headed and where I want to be has helped me focus on what’s really important and not F up. For anybody who’s going through that situation or anybody who’s dealing with it — it’s all about the choices. Every situation is different but it’s all about the choices you make and how you control your anger. To Ray, or anybody else — because I’m not better than the next man — I can just say I’ve been down that road. I deal with situations and I’ve made my mistakes too, but it’s all about how you push forward and how you control yourself.”

Wow. This is the first time that Chris Brown has publicly spoken about self-control struggles and abusive behavior and I actually feel that he has shown growth. Brown spoke yesterday with MTV News’ Sway about Ray Rice, the former Baltimore Ravens player who was terminated from the team this week after TMZ released a gruesome video of Rice punching his then-fiancée, Janay Palmer Rice in the head, knocking her unconscious, and then dragging her unconscious body out of an elevator. There’s been many reactions this week from domestic violence victims, including the hashtags #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft. But Chris Brown is in a unique position to explain the serious underlying psychological issues that lead abusers to harm others. I’m actually glad he weighed in here. (Not that I think Ray Rice, who recently announced he would give up hard liquor and became a born-again Christian, is willing to listen.) [MTV]

Khloe Kardashian’s Butt Is The Toast Of Instagram

What is it with the Kardashians and butts? Khloé Kardashian’s boyfriend, rapper French Montana, proudly posted an Instagram shot of her derriere yesterday. Apparently, he got the idea from Chris Brown, who surreptitiously took and posted a picture of now on-again-off-again GF Karrueche Tran laying face down in bed wearing just a bra and a thong. The photo has since been deleted, but Tran was apparently so disgusted when she found out that she called it quits on their relationship. (Really, that’s why you don’t want to date Chris Brown?) I’m not sure if Khloé knew what her guy was up to when he posted that photo, but methinks standalone ass snaps are kinda icky and invasive. Celebrity boyfriends of the world, take note. No more surprise ass shots please. [Refinery29]

Chris Brown Threw A Rock Through His Mom’s Car Window

Chris got so angry that he picked up a rock and threw it through her car window, shattering it. What a dick! Yesterday, on the Probation Department’s encouragment, a judge ordered Chris to spend 90 days in a rehab with a special focus on anger management and submit to drug testing. Hide the rocks.

“Fifty Shades” Fanfic Makes BDSM Fantasy Out Of Rihanna And Chris Brown Abuse

Chris Brown and Rihanna

I have just one word for “author” J. Lola: taste. In this context, it is defined as the ability to make discerning judgments about aesthetic, artistic, and intellectual matters, and this J. Lola here has approximately none of it. Lola’s e-book, “Fifty Shades of Sin,” will run you 99 cents for your Amazon Kindle and, oh, just about an eternity in the sulfurous pit of hell. The “Fifty Shades of Grey” fan fiction (no, really?) is summarized as follows. I’ll let you connect the dots. Keep reading »
