So if you haven’t heard about it already, last Wednesday the two biggest doofuses in hip hop decided that they wanted to display their “doofusness” in all its glory by engaging in a brawl at a popular New York night club.
According to TMZ, five people were injured in the incident and a couple of them are ready to sue. NYPD arrived on the scene after receiving a call around 4 or 5am. Chris and Drake had already conveniently vacated the premises by that time. After the fight, Chris, in true Chris Brown fashion, tweeted a photo of his injury along with a few ridiculous messages: [Click tweets to enlarge]
It should be noted that Chris has since removed the tweets and photos. (Not, of course, before the blogs got a hold of them.) There are quite a few stories circulating in regards to what actually happened; but the most popular (and my personal favorite) was that it all started over Ms. “sloppy-fast-pants” herself Rihanna – who Drake was rumored to have dated.
MediaTakeOut.com reported that Chris allegedly sent a bottle of champagne to Drake’s table as a peace offering, but Drake sent the bottle back to Chris with a message stating, “I’m [expletive] the love of your life [Rihanna], deal with it.”
The message (not surprisingly) sent Chris into a rage and he confronted Drake, which led to the brawl between both entourages. The two have had a war of words since both being romantically attached to Rihanna.
At ages 23 (Chris) and 25 (Drake) respectively, I personally believe that these men are too old to be fighting over some babe as if they were in the high school locker room; and although both are very talented, all of the talent in the world can’t make up for these guys seemingly awful personalities. No matter how the “alleged” brawl began, given that these two men were tied to it speaks volumes about their character and integrity… or lack thereof.
Chris Brown, if you choose to live your life “sloppily”, please don’t blast it all over Twitter. That’s just more of you than I care to see. The media does enough at perpetuating you as the bad boy. Stop helping.
And Drake, this situation has painted you as the ultimate pantywaist. If the story of how this all happened is true, that was bad form and in very poor taste.
For your lack of maturity and not knowing when to go sit down and hush-up, Chris and Drake, I crown you both our Celebrity NON Role Models of the Week.
Both of you need to go read a book.
Given all of this negativity amongst celebrity men, in lieu of crowning a Celebrity Role Model I wanted to take some time to highlight some hip-hop celebrity fellas who know how to get along. Flip through to check out some of the most interesting Hollywood “bromances” – proving that relationships between men in music aren’t all bad.
- Bruce Willis and DiddySlightly odd, but I suppose they roll in the same circles.
- Jay-Z and Chris MartinFriends for years, these two do everything together - from lunching to vacationing.
- Justin Bieber and Floyd MayweatherYou’ve seen the Canadian dream teen tag along ringside but Justin Bieber is actually an honorary member of Floyd Mayweather JR’s money team... Weird.
- Lamar Odom and Rob KardashianHaving had many ups and downs in their bromance, the in-laws still remain as close as ever.
- Usher and Justin Bieber... againUsher and his young protege have always remained close. From extravagant gifts to collaborative performances, these two are truly BFF's.
