It’s situations like these that can make or break a star’s career. This one happened to involve two stars – one who’s career will grow, and one who’s career will likely fizzle or stagnate. A recent blog on VH1’s website made me kinda think about what the future might have in store for Rihanna and Chris Brown.
Just as the blog says, I think Rihanna’s career will definitely benefit from this. Tragic moments like this tend to have that effect on people’s career. For example, there’s no question that the tragedy that happened to Jennifer Hudson’s family, as sick as it is, benefited her career. I suspect Rihanna will emerge an even bigger star from this.
The biggest mistake Chris Brown made so far is waiting so long to release such a vague apology through his publicist. But despite losing endorsement deals and radio stations refusing to play his music, Chris Brown will bounce back from this if he plays his cards right. However, his comeback also depends on what comes to surface when more is revealed to the public.
The biggest mistake Brown is making right now is laying low. He should definitely be more active in communicating to the public how he feels about the situation, and he should definitely address the situation better. A statement released from his agent isn’t cutting it. Perhaps a Soulja Boy style YouTube video letting us know what’s going on would be better?
He also needs to follow in the footsteps of R. Kelly and Usher before him and put out the best music of his career immediately after. Sure Jay-Z may no longer care for him, but Jay-Z doesn’t like R. Kelly either, so what does that tell you?
