In Other Chris Brown News

Some people still hang the 2009 Breezy beat down (Rihanna) and other angry behavior over Chris’ head, but others recognize his personal and community efforts. The bipolar news comes just days after Chris received a “Second Chance at Loving Life” award from 2nd Call, an organization dedicated to assisting in the personal development of ex-felons, for “being an avenue of hope reconnecting 2nd Call participants to motivate themselves to change” and some of his charitable acts that involved the Symphonic Love Foundation and the Unity Campaign.

People wonder, “what ever happened to the sweet ‘ol, “Yo (Excuse Me Miss)” Chris Brown?,” but even while the lives of entertainers sort of become an open book once they sign on, there’s still a lot we don’t see. Growing up in the entertainment industry really does influence later behavior. Just look at Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, for example.

That list stretches further, but in lighter news: Chris and Ariana Grande (who sounds so much like Mariah Carey, by the way) filmed the visual to their new duet over the weekend. You can knock Chris Brown, but you can’t knock his talent. Keep an eye out for the video!
