 Karrueche Says She Is Done Giving Second Chances

Linda, honey, listen. I am really pulling for Karrueche to stay the hell away from Chris Brown. I’m not particularly a fan of hers, I just hate to see a woman put up with that much public disrespect without coming to the decision that she can do so much better. And that is the case with Karrueche. Despite public opinion, she is actually out here working. She has things going for her. In a nutshell, she can do better.

And apparently, Karrueche seems to believe that’s the case as well. At least, that’s what her Instagram posts suggest.

First she posted the image above, herself standing in front of a gang of pink roses. And she included the caption: “Your eyes never lie, even if they tell.” which is a line from Kendrick Lamar’s song “Real”… which also mentions roses, the material perks of being in love but also, “what love got to do with it, when you don’t love yourself?” Sound familiar?

And then if that weren’t enough… Karrueche also posted this very blatant and bold message.

Well there you have it. I don’t know Karrueche but if I saw her on the street, I’d tell homegirl to stay strong.

“They’re Either Talking Sh*t About You Or Stealing The Sh*t You’re Talking”: Drake Has Words For Chris Brown And Diddy

Drake has had a pretty tough week or so. If you’ll recall, Chris Brown claimed that one of the many reasons he and Karrueche Tran were going their separate ways (again) had a lot to do with the fact that she allegedly went on a date with the rapper on the low-low. And then, the next thing we knew, Drake was getting punched by Diddy in Miami. As the story goes, according to TMZ, the men were at odds over a song. Producer Boi-1da gave Drake the beat to the popular song “0 To 100/The Catch Up,” but he also had given that same beat to Diddy at some point. But when the Bad Boy head decided to sit on the beat instead of using it, Drake recorded his song without consulting with Diddy. That made the mogul very mad, and he aired out his feelings a few months ago before all the drama came to a head:

 

 

When Drake was confronted about the song at the club LIV in Miami, he allegedly tried to blow Diddy off, and when Diddy felt disrespected, he punched Toronto’s finest in the mouth. Somehow Drake re-injured a bad shoulder and had to go to the ER to get it taken care of.

Since then, Drake has been on the hideout from his foes, but decided he was ready to come out if it early this morning to send this message to detractors (notice his injured arm is covered):

They’re either talking shit about you or stealing the shit you’re talking…either way the name been poppin

“Youth Can No Longer Be Our Excuse” Karrine Steffans Speaks About Chris Brown And Karrueche’s Breakup

Karrine Steffans Speaks About Chris Brown And Karrueche

It’s not often that we see eye to eye with Karrine Steffans. But as someone who has had quite a few high profile relationships and even survived a couple of abusive ones, she had some interesting insight to share about Chris Brown and Karrueche’s recent breakup via Twitter.

See what she had to say.

 

Well… I’m with Karrine when she’s right. I don’t even need to break down the truth of her points. She just hit the nail on the head with every single one of these tweets. And while some might argue that it’s not her business and she should stay out of it, that kind of went out the window with the whole Instagram post.

There will be others who say that she is in no place to talk because of her own personal life. But to me, that makes her even more worthy to speak on it. She knows. And furthermore, whether people will listen or not, someone needs to be letting the younger generation, particularly young women, know that this type of behavior is not normal and not indicative of a healthy relationship, no matter how old you are. 

Kudos to Karrine. 

Chris Brown Apologizes To Karrueche After Publicly Disrespecting Her All Weekend: “Everybody Know I Love That Girl”

Over the weekend, Chris Brown pretty much threw a tantrum (on stage and on social media) because his longtime girlfriend, whom he has repeatedly disrespected, decided that she would finally stand up for herself and break things off.

You can read more about his over-the-top antics here, but in short, he boasted during a performance about being single and proceeded to say,” F-k that b-tch.” He also took to social media and attempted to degrade her by posting about her participating in threesomes at the start of their relationship and accused her of sneaking around with Drake. And then after a weekend of this outrageous behavior, unsurprisingly to most of us, Chris decided to apologize and proclaim his love for her.

“Being young and dumb is one of my strong suits and emotional at best. I love hard and react impulsively when I’m hurt at times. I don’t think social media is a place to air out or hash out personal problems and a n-gga feel hella WACK for doing it.

So I AM APOLOGIZING I live in a glass house and the same sh-t that makes me great also is my curse. Everybody know I love that girl. I don’t care how my image my look to the public because I’m still gonna be the best at what I do. I just want baby girl to know I apologize!”

Although Karrueche has been expressing that she has reached her breaking point and that she’s done with the tumultuous relationship for good, and while I wish that this were true, chances are that they will be back together before this post is published.

Meanwhile, folks from Drake’s camp are saying that the allegations about him dating Karrueche are completely false because the aspiring actress isn’t his “type.”

“Drake’s an a– man. Think about it, all the strippers he gets with … the first out of his type was Rihanna,” an insider reportedly to TMZ.

I’m by no means a Chris Brown hater, but something has honestly got to give. If this is how he treats someone he “loves,” I don’t even want to imagine how he behaves towards someone he hates.

Yesterday we reported Chris Brown and Karrueche ended their turbulent relationship. Now, we have even more drama to report.

In several tweets and Instagram posts, Chris Brown exposed Karrueche on an entire new level of messiness. The drama started when Chris tweeted, “It amazes me that you can change and elevate someone’s life completely and they treat you like a regular nigga…But I’m SLEEP”.

Chris than posted a screenshot of his tweet with a very interesting caption.

Yes, you read that right. Chris Brown accused her of dating Drake, being disloyal and faking for the world. Karrueche responded to the post with the following.

(function() { var useSSL = 'https:' == document.location.protocol; var src = (useSSL ? 'https:' : 'http:') + '//www.googletagservices.com/tag/js/gpt.js'; document.write(''); })();

The back and forth exchange sent social media into chaos last night. Several entertainers commented on the incident.

Drake has yet to comment on this entire situation. However we’re convinced he’s somewhere laughing. Oh and Rihanna is definitely slipping her tea and enjoying her life.

As for Chris and Karrueche, we think it’s safe to say they will not be getting back together. However, you never know with these two.

Here we go again. According to several reports, Chris Brown and Karrueche are on the outs, again.

Last night during his set for Power 106’s Cali Christmas Concert in Los Angeles, the singer announced he was single. Before singing his hit “These Hoes Ain’t Loyal”, Chris said “how many single ladies out there tonight? I’m single too! F*ck that b*tch!”

The comments sent the crowd into a frenzy and eventually got back to Karrueche. Later on in the evening the model tweeted, “N*ggas be in they feelings when you break with them lol.”

Yikes. This isn’t the first time the couple has broken up. Chris Brown and Karrueche are very well known for their public break ups and make ups. We’re sure the two will be back together in no time. In the meantime, we’re taking beats on how long they will be on the outs this time.

As troubled as Chris Brown may be, his talent is undeniable. He’s a natural-born performer and during tonight’s opening performance at the Soul Train Awards, we were all reminded of why we love him so much.

The 25-year-old crooner serenaded the audience (and those of us watching from home) with a medley of his greatest hits. He opened his performance with his debut single, “Yo.” He went on to perform “Poppin,” “Take You Down” and of course, transitioned into some of his current hits like “New Flame” and “Loyal,” which he later won a Best Collaboration Award for.

Check out clips from Chris’ opening performance below.

The Questionable Behavior Of Male Celebrities And Female Fans’ Tradition Of Forgiveness

Bill Cosby, R.Kelly, Chuck Berry, Ray Rice, Michael Jackson, Tupac, Dr. Dre and Chris Brown have all been accused or found guilty of sexual misconduct or physical violence against women and/or children. Yet most, if not all of these men, continue to have a devoted fan base, and many of the people who admire them are women.

To this day, Bill Cosby is considered one of the most valued men to ever grace the small screen thanks to his role as Heathcliff Huxtable on “The Cosby Show.” This is true despite numerous accusations of rape. Chris Brown continues to have millions of fans who sing his songs and declare themselves #TeamBreezy, many of them young girls and women, even though he battered longtime girlfriend and fellow pop star, Rihanna. Ray Rice knocked his then-fiancée (now wife) out on camera and Baltimore Ravens fans still clamored to defend him to get him back on the field. Women who were fans told reporters, “I absolutely 100% support him.”

So, how do we, as fans, cope with the disgusting behaviors of those in the media who we are fans of and/or glorify? And when do we transition from cheek-turning consumer to apologist? That’s a big question for anyone who’s ever embraced “Bad” or “P.Y.T.” as a personal anthem. Rather than immediately questioning Michael Jackson’s colorful and odd behavior when allegations came out about him, fans determined that the child who slept in Jackson’s bed was lying and that his family was trying to extort the singer. The public questioned, “Who would let their child sleep in bed with a grown man?” Yes, many fans were hopeful believers in the King of Pop and dismissive of the boy, and to this day, those parts of his past are ignored by those who have known and loved Jackson since they were young.

As a rambunctious adolescent, I happily blasted “Dead Wrong” by the Notorious B.I.G. on my Sony Walkman (the portable anti-skip CD player kind), so much so that I wasn’t fully taking in the problematic lyrics that people pointed out to me. I tried to quickly rationalize the song, claiming that “He probably doesn’t believe a word that he’s saying.” And I’ve made similar excuses for other artists, actors and athletes, but I’m starting to feel a way about it…

And the reason why I can not blindly consume certain media like I used to is because I realize that everything we take in affects us. And while I know that “Dead Wrong” has been a favorite of mine in the past, I have to remind myself that problematic music simply isn’t palatable for me, as a woman or a feminist. That music looks to undermine me via content that is often hateful, misogynistic and homophobic at times. Even without content that is abrasive, such as those delivered by the late Notorious B.I.G., I continue to be offended by artists and actors I once revered, who I’ve realized often exhibited, or still exhibit f’ed up behavior. And no matter how lovable the Huxtables still are, I can’t continue to endorse a man who’s been accused of violating women over and over again.

I’ve decided that I’m not going to pay for or entertain anti-woman behavior anymore, which is what I’m doing when I pay for the products and/or art of celebrities whose values don’t align with mine. I don’t want to negotiate away that part of my awareness, but, that’s just me. Ultimately, it’s a personal decision. If you can comfortably listen to Dr. Dre, knowing that he once violently attacked a woman and then bragged about it, then do you. But for me, I feel that I’m condoning that behavior each time I bounce my head to any of Dr. Dre’s music or I look to buy one of his overpriced products. Others may not feel that way, which I can respect.

Guilt isn’t the goal here either. Listen to and watch your stars proudly, understand the messages that they’re trying to convey and recognize that while some content or conduct is product of a facade, a lot of it isn’t.

All things considered, I’ve only mentioned black male celebrities in this article, but there are PLENTY of women, as well as non-black artists and entertainers, who betray women with their actions and words, and real dialogue should take place regarding their place in our lives.

“Please Don’t Start Drama That Doesn’t Exist” Adrienne Bailon Responds To Chris Brown

Adrienne Bailon Responds To Chris Brown

Source: Fox, The Real

When the ladies of “The Real” sat down to speak about the topic of friends dating shiesty dudes, referencing Chris and Karrueche’s on-again, off-again relationship, I doubt they thought it would cause so much of a stink.

But Chris Brown got word that the ladies were talking about him and his girl and he acted a fool.

He singled out Tamar and Adrienne, calling them all types of names and attempting to bring up Adrienne’s sexual history. Which was interesting considering Jeannie Mai was really the one coming for him. (And that’s not a diss toward Jeannie. Anyone with internet access has seen how Chris gets down. It’s out there.)

The issue is still Chris’ apparent disrespect of women.

Either way, Tamar already responded.

And now Adrienne’s chiming in with her two cents, just a little bit more quietly.

According to The Shade Room, Adrienne Bailon headed straight over to Chris Brown’s Instagram page with her response.

“Who said anything bad about her? I actually know her…We’re cool. The conversation was generally speaking of anyone who may “possibly” be in a bad relationship. Please don’t start drama that doesn’t EXIST. If she’s happy…So am I. And I certainly STARTED my career in a multi platinum singing group. Get your facts straight. You don’t need to freeload when you have your own Barbie. God bless. <3″

Accurate.

What do you think about Adrienne’s response? Personally, I admire the fact that she went right to Chris Brown’s page, instead of creating several Instagram posts.

Take a look at it in the image below.
