Woah. We have a feeling things are going to progress rather quickly after this little development. The Rihanna-Chris Brown- Karrueche Tran love triangle is officially done for now, since Chris and Karrueche broke up. Of the split, he revealed, ” I love Karrueche very much but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna. I’d rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives.” “Friendship with Rihanna” wouldn’t be exactly accurate since the two have been paired together for everything from looking cozy at a Jay-Z concert, to hooking up at a club with Chris being spotted leaving her hotel room the next morning. But since Chris is single now, we thought that both his and Rih’s teams would be brainstorming about a debut plan — a way to usher in their couple-dom to the world. Oh right, sorry, they’re not together till someone gives a confirmation. Of course not. Please note our sarcastic voices. Throw the carefully chalked-out plan out the window too, because Chris has taken matters into his own hands. Just a few hours ago, Chris tweeted the link to a video called “The Real Chris Brown,” which has the tag line, “You think you know Chris Brown? You don’t know Chris Brown.” We can’t fully describe it for you, because you need to see it for yourselves! It’s basically a slickly shot piece of Chris talking, drunkenly, about how much his love life is stressing him out.
The video starts with a disembodied voice asking, “Wassup, CB” and his initial response is, “Man, I don’t know man! We had fun in the club! I’m a little drunk, so I’m gonna be honest. Y’all don’t really get the real Chris Brown so, I’d like to just be honest, man, I’m stressed out. That’s just real s—, man … I’m stressed out!” Then it gets interesting, as he goes on to say, “It ain’t about the music. I love my fans. It’s just … you know when you share history with somebody, then can you fall in love with somebody else. It’s kinda difficult, you know what I’m sayin‘? Is there such a thing as loving two people? I don’t know. I don’t know if that’s possible but for me, I just … I feel like that.” Right? We know. Insane!
The video’s also cut with many shots of Chris and Rihanna together, so nudge, nudge, wink, wink. It ends with him testifying, “I don’t wanna hurt either or. This is me. I’m not trying to be a player …” and we’re left with the fact that this video wasn’t him making a resolution about who to be with — although splitting with Karrueche was a sign, if anything — but a way to get stuff off his chest. It is also clearly all about Rihanna and his love for her, a fact that has not escaped his now ex-girlfriend. Karrueche, right after the video went live, tweeted, “Wtf is going on?” This was followed by, “All I’m saying is.. You don’t mess with people’s genuine feelings. You just don’t!” Ugh. That’s got to suck for her to see. It’s like rubbing salt in someone’s wounds. Karrueche’s final word is, “Life moves on.. So let’s all.” Rihanna’s tweet, on the other hand … you can see it below. Thoughts, everyone?
