Trash person Chris Brown is still making that documentary about his life that nobody wants to see
Luckily, the internet is here to tell him how ridiculous that idea is
Since last year Brown has been plugging away at his self-made documentary entitled “WELCOME TO MY LIFE” which he says is a chance to tell his own side of the story regarding his past abusive relationships with ex-girlfriends Rihanna and Karrueche Tran.
A website for the project describes it as a: “COMPELLING DOCUMENTARY THAT MOVES BEYOND THE SPOTLIGHT AND PAST THE ATTENTION-GRABBING HEADLINES TO GIVE POP SUPERSTAR CHRIS BROWN A CHANCE TO TELL HIS OWN STORY.”
It’s all in capitals, not sure why. Although Brown released the trailer for his documentary a year ago this month on Vimeo, his inexplicably loyal fans are now getting antsy over the release date for the film – especially as he teased the date he’s dropping his album with a tweet that “THIS SUMMER IS ALL ABOUT THE WOMEN” – with one fan writing “I will never stop loving and supporting you Chris”.
I know, right, it’s infuriating. Luckily though, with Brown teasing the release of new material, he’s stirred up a new wave of revulsion in his decision to turn a domestic abuse case and felony conviction for assault into a creative project. In an article published this weekend, Affinity, calling the documentary “tales of a highly praised serial abuser”, writes: “It’s a chance to tell his own story – how different can his story be compared to his ex-girlfriends’ stories?
“He, the assailant himself, has turned himself in to police in 2009 when he had physically abused Rihanna in the duration of their relationship. Anyone would think that he knew what he’s done is wrong considering that he knew he had to right his wrongs and that he would rid himself of the temptations to hit a woman, but this was not the case.”
And inevitably, Twitter has dragged the very idea of 2017’s very own “If I Did It” creative endeavour with ruthless efficiency.
The release date for documentary where Chris Brown tries to convince us he’s actually super sorry and to hear his side of the story, has thankfully not been released yet. So for now we don’t have to put up with it. But given that in February this year Brown’s girlfriend filed a restraining order against him for threatening to kill her and that people are currently still pay to see him on a world tour, it doesn’t inspire a huge amount of hope for the excuses he’s gonna wheel out in his caps lock disaster of a film.
