Chris Brown and Rihanna. Where to begin?
The troubled exes released not one but two remixes featuring each other yesterday — “Turn Up The Music” and “Birthday Cake.” (And it actually was Rihanna’s birthday — how meta!) It’s basically a big “fuck you” to all those who have been griping on Twitter and such about a possible collaboration between the two — why else “leak” both songs at once? Clearly those two, at least, are not concerned about the controversy.
In fact, they’re getting off on it.
I was too busy covering the Grammys to pay close attention to the broadcast itself, but from what I saw, it seemed to be a great show. It didn’t feel cheap or chintzy, it didn’t seem to be trying too hard to push certain artists or grab viewers, and it’s hard to argue with an Adele sweep, regardless of the fact that I need a good six years before I will ever willingly hear “Rolling In The Deep” again.
