I have a feeling most people reading this blog is well aware and have some opinions about the Chris Brown and Rihanna domestic abuse events.
It seems like the general consensus among the public is that Rihanna is being a horrible role model, and the stereotypical cut-out of what happens in abuse situation. As she reunites with Brown, it is expected that she will not press charges, testify, or speak out against abuse. It is expected, that the 19-year old Chris Brown will abuse again.
While legal battles and media attacks wage, Chris Brown appears to be moving on.
Chris Brown's myspace reads: ""Vote for Chris on the Kids' Choice Awards 2009, Thank you for your support."
The Kids' Choice this year are March 28, 2009, and hosted by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
The nominees are based on votes by kids, and the voting finished four days ago, March 3rd...well after the Chris Brown/Rihanna scandal began.
Of the four music categories, Chris Brown and Rihanna have a combined four nomination (nominations in song categories listed at end of post).
I have really torn feelings over this...the awards have their rules, and I don't think that award should be manipulated as if we lived in a state-controlled government, but it also is a kids show, and to allow Chris Brown to be praised and lauded in a public forum geared around Children and Teens is unfortunate.
Should Nickelodeon take a stand? Should parents take a stand? Should Chris Brown's personal life be separated from his entertainment life?
