Yes, it’s true. As writers, sometimes our personal feelings spill over into the pixels and sometimes at the most unexpected times. And that truth was never more apparent than when Chad Taylor of central Iowa’s independent weekly, Cityview, recently reviewed Chris Brown’s latest album, Fortune, and summed up the project with just six scathing words about Brown.
“Chris Brown hits women. Enough said,” wrote Taylor.
Yes, you read that right. Feel free to drop your jaws, pick them up and shake your head, if you like.
Taylor’s pithy review, which references Brown’s 2009 assault conviction against his then-girlfriend Rihanna, wasn’t without its fans. Several of Taylor’s followers applauded the write for his, ahem, blunt honesty.
“impeccable review” said one fan, and yet another said, “Finally, the media get it right, well reviewed Chad Taylor.”
Surprisingly, Brown has yet to respond.
Well, it looks like bad boy pop star will never be able to escape his abusive past, and all we have to say is one word: Wow!
