If you hadn’t been keeping up, Chris Brown has had a tough few months when it comes to his legal troubles. His neighbors have been complaining about the artwork/graffiti on his home and he’s facing huge fines from the city because of it; his brawl with Frank Ocean from January could somehow land him battery charges months later (we’ll see after his hearing on July 15), and claims have been made that Brown misreported his community service hours for his probation, and could get in trouble for that if it’s found to be true. And if all of that isn’t enough, people tend to throw shade at his name on a daily basis. While most of us would crumple under such constant scrutiny (and Chris himself has been known to throw a chair or cuss folks out in frustration from it all), he now seems to be okay with those who seem to loathe him. In fact, he took a page out of Kanye West’s book and let the world know that at this point, it doesn’t bother him anymore. Posting a picture of similar graffiti monsters that have garnered complaints in the front of his home and through Twitter, Brown let his feelings be known:
“Be yourself! Acceptance is trivial. When we die, we die alone! Artist worry about their brand. I worry about supporting my fam”
“When people walk with their noses in the air they usually run into s**t!
“I like being the person everyone hates. It makes life more interesting.”
Interesting or irksome? Only he knows. What do you think of his statements?
