There's not much to the video (below). He just stands in front of a white background singing about how great he can make some lucky lady's life ("I can change your life, make it so new/ Make you never want to go back to the old you"), and sometimes he’ll bust out a nunchuck trick. (Special shout-out to MTV for choosing the perfect "I Ain't a Monster" screenshot above.)
The whole Transformers thing is so strange in timing it makes us think he recorded it as a theme song for the summer blockbuster but Michael Bay was all, "Thanks for the input, Chris, but I think we're going to go with someone who's done a little less Rihanna assaulting. Linkin Park, you're in."
And that brings us to what people will always remember about Chris' career: Rihanna. In an effort to combat this, it appears he's using Twitter to show how much he's grown as a person since his assault conviction. Yesterday, in addition to announcing the Dec. 15 release date of this album Graffiti, he also posted this video:
"IM SORRY YALL. JUST HAD TO POST IT," he tweeted along with the clip. He added, "FOR THE FELLAS: showing emotion doesn't make u weak... BEING HONEST MAKES U STRONG."
Nice try, Chris, but posting some "The Way We Were" fan montage of you and Rihanna is not going to inspire much empathy from anyone. Or does it?
WeN2K Commentary WeN2K doesn't always agree with the articles we post. We post them for our members and readers (you) to ponder. That being said we don't a agree with the statement "there's not much to the video". On the contrary - the video is pretty cool...futuristic sports cars and motorcycles and all! The song isn't bad either. But most news about Chris Brown cannot escape the specter of his conviction against Rhianna - which he, himself, seems to be curiously and potentially dangerously (detrimentally) referencing with his 'tweeting'. Is that wise? After all, violence against women (let alone beautiful, young famous ones) can NEVER be resolved or mitigated...just eradicated.
