Music Spotlight: Chris Brown "Don't Think They Know" feat. Aaliyah"

[ + ]

It's fine if you hate Justin Bieber because you think he's just another dumb, delinquent, rich kid. It's fine if you hate on Chris Brown because you don't agree with how he handles his anger issues. All understandable. But most of the people who 'hate' on these artists don't even listen to their music in the first place. If I like a song, I like it because I like it. I don't like it because the man behind the song is a millionaire or is known for his charities. I don't like it because the girl behind the song is one of the nicest people in Hollywood. I don't care. These people are not and will probably never be my friends in real life so I really don't care what they do with their lives unless they somehow personally affect me. They are not my "heroes" or 'idols'. I just like their music.

And I'm not writing this because I felt like I needed to explain why I listen to Chris Brown--who is again in the media for causing some trouble. I'm writing this because it's just something that personally irks me. Like how people hate on Michael Jackson for being a 'child rapist'. Like....I'm not even going to get into that because that's another topic to get into. But I've always liked Chris Brown. He is one of the only mainstream R&B artists today that is actually an "R&B" artist. I know there are others, but he's been around for a while and he's been consistent. Bottom line, I like Chris Brown's music. Sucks that he may be a sucky person but that's not really my problem.

Let your ears be the judge.
