A is for Asshole. Chris Brown is an asshole. Even if we summon all of the self-control needed to ignore his violent, petulant, destructive, unrepentant, homophobic conduct, and focus on his music, his on-record persona is consistently dickheaded in a way that is out-of-step with the contrived redemption arc devised to promote his new album X.
Perhaps you've noticed that Chris Brown has been walking around wearing a new chain recently. Some blogs have reported that this nice piece of jewelry bears a striking resemblance to a necklace Rihanna once kissed in a mysterious undated black-and-white photograph. Could Brown be sending secret signals about his love to/for Rihanna?
A decade or so ago, the NYPD copped to having a so-called "Hip-Hop Police" force that kept tabs on all the rich and famous black men just itching to commit all types of heinous crimes in New York City. That force still reportedly exists, but now it keeps its eye on people like Drake and Chris Brown.
Chris Brown is not a rapper. Though he does rap sometimes, he is primarily a singer, and should be identified as such in the same way that Charles Manson should be identified as a cult leader/criminal and not a musician/dude with sweet moves, and that Bugs Bunny should be identified as a talking rabbit and not a drag queen. But people continue to write "rapper Chris Brown..." which seems assumptive to the point of being oh, hmmm, what's the word? Oh yeah, racist!
Celebrity domestic abuser Chris Brown was released from jail Monday morning. Brown, famous for punching people in the face, was serving time for punching a man in the face last October.

After his arrest this weekend for misdemeanor simple assault, Chris Brown has decided to go to rehab. According to a statement given to E!
