I’m going to make this as quick and painless as possible. Let’s start with Chris Brown and Soulja Boy. You have likely heard murmurings of the two artists’ social media feud. How did it start? The drama began when Soulja Boy liked a picture of Chris Brown’s ex, Karrueche Tran. Chris Brown got upset, words (or rather posts) were exchanged and an all on virtual fight ensued. As if all that wasn’t ridiculous enough, they are reportedly prepping for a boxing match in Dubai to air out their frustrations. Yep, you read that right. That’s not all. Floyd Mayweather and 50 Cent have jumped on board as “promoters”.
Plus, Mike Tyson is offering his services as Chris Brown’s trainer. This can’t be real. Why don’t they just have a sing/dance off? Oh wait, Chris Brown would win that. Heck, Chris Brown will probably win the boxing match too. However, that is not why you’re reading this post today. The sour and senseless cherry on top of all of this madness is Kelly Price. Yesterday afternoon, she posted a beautifully made up selfie of herself on Instagram. Harmless, right? Well, it’s harmless until you read the caption. She’s giving her thanks to 50 Cent for “trusting her” to sing the national anthem at the Chris Brown vs. Soulja Boy brawl. Huh? I just threw up a little bit too.
In some regards, I expect this behavior from Soulja Boy. Let’s be honest. When was the last time he had a hit song? Considering all of the headlines he has made, it’s not too far fetched for Chris Brown either. However, Kelly Price is still a head scratcher in all this. I don’t get it. Honestly, I lost respect for her after her catty stint on R&B Divas. Nonetheless, her talent reigns supreme. She is one of the best singers of this generation. I don’t understand how she supports this. Are times that hard that these are the kinds of gigs she’s booking? I can’t take it. I’m done. Let’s just reflect on some of the better periods of Kelly Price’s career. Here are a few of her best songs to get you through this hump day.
Who are your bets on? Chris Brown or Soulja Boy? Will Kelly Price’s performance go down as one of the greatest renditions of the national anthem? Whatever the case, this is the biggest Crockpot of foolery I’ve seen in a while.
