Oprah vs. Chris Brown: He said, she said

This is an unfair match-up given the popularity of one over the other but hey, drama is drama. Chris Brown is none too pleased with Oprah bashing him because of his behavior during the early morning hours of February 8th.

Apparently, Chris sat down with People and expressed his discontent with Oprah. It all started when Oprah did a special on domestic violence in correlation to the physical altercation between Chris and Rihanna. Chris felt that Oprah could have taken a different route, perhaps one that entailed helping both he and Rihanna. He described her move as a "slap in the face", hmmm interesting choice of words.

"I commend Oprah on being like, 'This is a problem,' but it was a slap in my face. I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school. She could have been more helpful, like, 'Okay, I'm going to help both of these people out.'"
Oprah wasn't having that and responded--through her people of course--with this statement to TMZ.

"Oprah is very appreciative that Chris Brown performed at her school but she takes domestic abuse very seriously. She hopes he gets the counseling he needs."
Personally, I feel Chris apologized for his actions and sees that he was wrong for doing what he did and knows that-that type of behavior will not be tolerated around these parts. It's as if people are saying that he is not allowed to carry on with his that what people are saying? It probably would be best if y'all would clue Chris in on this career memo.

As for Oprah and her special, I think she was just using the event to send a message out to other young men and women who are involved in abusive relationships. Seeing that the world is obsessed with "celebrity" it was the best way to make an eye-catching special that would get people's attentions.

I just hope Rihanna and Chris can move on with their lives (separately) so we can start talking about their albums already.
