Us Weekly is reporting that Chris Brown tried to pick up a woman at the Grammys with the line, “Can I get your number? I promise I won’t beat you!”
Chris Brown — who pleaded guilty in 2009 for felony assault for hitting then-girlfriend Rihanna — confidently approached an attractive brunette Feb. 10 at the Lasio Professional Hair Care suite Grammy gift lounge and asked her, “Can I get your number? I promise I won’t beat you!” the woman tells Us Weekly.
“He and his friends laughed, then one yelled, ‘That’s his new line!’ Ugh! I wanted to throw up!”
Chris is vehemently denying it, telling TMZ: “That is absurd and absolutely not true. I did not say that nor would I joke about that.”
That denial rang a bit hollow, as one TMZ commenter pointed out: “Yeah, he won’t joke about beating a woman. He’ll just actually do it.”
At the end of the day, there’s no way to confirm if Chris Brown really said this or not. But we have a few pieces of advice for Mr. Brown, from the Lovelyish Team:
1. Stop Tweeting
You seem to think that people are hating on you because of your Grammy. Perhaps that’s why you tweeted, “HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That’s the ultimate F— OFF!”
You also tweeted this: “Strange how we pick and choose who to hate! Let me ask u this. Our society is full of rappers (which I listen to) who have sold drugs (poisoning). But yet we glorify them and imitate everything they do. Then right before the worlds eyes a man shows how he can make a Big mistake and learn from it, but still has to deal with day to day hatred! You guys love to hate!!! But guess what???”"
Chris, you are so far off base… the lesson here isn’t that you made a big mistake and learned from it. It’s that you made a big mistake and appear to have learned nothing from it.
Just stop tweeting. Ever.
2. Stop Hitting Things
You didn’t do yourself any favors when you “exploded in a rage” last year during a Good Morning America interview, and then smashed a window and ripped your shirt off like the Hulk.
Homophobic meltdowns on the basketball court don’t help either.
3. Show Genuine Remorse
To be honest Chris, you don’t seem that remorseful about what happened. You talk as if you were the victim two years ago, and as if society has done you wrong by shunning you for so long.
No. You messed up. You are not a victim. You are the perp. Accept it, show remorse, and maybe then people will move on. Until then, “haters” will continue to focus on your horrific acts two years ago.
4. Give To the Cause
You accepted two Grammys on Sunday. Perhaps you could have auctioned them off for a domestic violence charity. Or you could give 10% of your income to a charity that works to educate people about domestic abuse.
I heard some rumors you were working with anti domestic violence charity, Man Up… but haven’t heard much since. If you are serious about owning up to your huge mistake, getting serious about the cause would be a big start.
Seriously Chris, I heard your mom was livid with you about this Twitter controversy. Rightfully so. We hope your mom can set you straight and get you to see the light… domestic violence is a serious problem. You need to get professional help. It’s time to stop talking about what happened, and time to start showing people that you really care about the issues at stake.
Which if that two years last Sunday, you violently beat your girlfriend while driving your car and then pled guilty to felony assault. Domestic violence is no joke. It’s time you realized that.
