Seven years ago, Chris Brown was the darling of America until he made a deadly mistake of physically assaulting Rihanna, another American sweetheart. What was unexpected by Brown, his team and many in the music business was the way the public reacted to Brown. Overnight he went from being the most loved to the most hated artist in America.
In my writings during that time and now, I maintained that Brown’s team did a poor job of managing the crisis. They wanted to get him back to making music but it was a very traumatic event for Rihanna the victim, and for him the perpetrator of the crime. He needed to take a break from music, heal and chase down the source of his anger so it would never repeat itself. He of course needed to beg for forgiveness and again lay low. He didn’t. His team was more focused on the money and also seem to believe that so long as he kept making music and performing, it would wipe away the problem. They were wrong.
Till date, Chris Brown is yet to recover from the trauma of that incident seven years ago, and we saw him plunge into very self destructive habits he has never really healed from, if you ask me.Yesterday, Brown released a new trailer for his documentary ‘Welcome to my life,’ that captures what he went through. The documentary features interviews and commentary from his mother Joyce Hawkins and fellow artists J.Lo, Rita Ora, Mary J. Blige, among many. The artist is yet to announce a release date.
