Last week, as Chris Brown became another year older, many of us wondered, will the 22-year-old star become a year wiser as well?
After his recent tantrum at the studios of Good Morning America, Chris’ fans were not the only ones concerned. In a recent interview, Chris’ mother, Joyce Hawkins, says she doesn’t want to see any incidents like that again but believes there’s only one way her son can get the cloud from over his head. Speaking to Sister 2 Sister magazine, Hawkins said:
“I think he really needs to talk about the situation in itself, what actually happened to Rihanna… so that he can get that out for himself.”
Though Chris has done interviews on the incident between he and Rihanna during the 2009 Grammy weekend, he has never spoken about the night in question giving a full account of what happened. However after nearly two years of the story dominating the conversation around Chris career, Hawkins says he son may need to just speak on it directly in order to move on:
“He has to learn to deal with it and go on with his life. This is something that happened; it was a huge mistake… it was not good at all. But he is still a human being and we all make mistakes and we live and we go on with it. But he has to own it, deal with it and move on with his life.”
It’s true that Chris has been reluctant to speak about that night, as seen by his uncomfortable interview with GMA anchor Robin Roberts. But one has to wonder if talking about the incident in further detail would really help Chris or the public to move on. After two years of conversation about that night in February, is the best move for Chris to rehash it again?
What do you think Clutchettes? Would speaking more forthrightly about the incident with Rihanna, allow Chris and his career to move on? Tell us what you think- share your thoughts!
