Everyday I tell myself that I won't have to post anymore Chris Brown stories because there is really nothing left to say for right now. I also keep telling myself that things could not be any more disturbing and that rock bottom has been reached in the mess. Nope. I could not have been more wrong. I thought it was bad enough that after being in court and accused of two felonies that you go spend your evening at a hotel bar and stay out until almost 4am while presumably the woman you are accused of beating was probably waiting at home for you. I'm hoping also the bar didn't serve a 19 year old, but this is LA, so you never know.
But honestly, that is nothing compared to what he did before he went to court. Prior to his making an appearance, Chris decided to head on over to his MySpace page presumably looking for a hookup for after court. But, while he was there he went ahead and decided to get all of his fans to vote for him. No, he wasn't asking for your vote for a-hole of the year or man most likely to punch someone while driving. Nope, instead, Chris wanted all of his teen fans to vote for him in the upcoming Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, in which he is nominated for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song for Kiss Kiss.
He wrote, “Hey fans, Vote for Chris on the Kids Choice Awards 2009 link provided below… Thank you for your support.”
Yeah, and if you do vote for him, he will send you an autographed photo of Rihanna and what happens to you if you don't vote for him. Seriously? I mean I understand that this was probably the work of a publicist. I get that. But what publicist in their right mind is going to think this is appropriate? What kind of message is this sending to kids who do vote? Oh, and the awards are on March 28th and since his next hearing is not until the first week of April, I'm sure Chris will be there at the event smiling and posing and preening and flexing his muscles with Rihanna on his arm. If I am Viacom, I am making sure that Chris Brown doesn't win a damn thing. All their awards shows are fixed anyway so making sure he doesn't win should not be a problem. The next thing I do is make sure that he knows he is not welcome at the awards. If he shows up at an event targeted at kids, the resulting bad publicity will be horrific for Nickelodeon.
