Woman beater Chris Brown and herpes carrying Rihanna are both nominated for NAACP Image Awards, but I have a strange feeling that neither one of them is going to be attending the ceremony come Thursday. Considering their mission statement (below), I would strongly suggest to the NAACP that they tighten up their standards a bit… unless “…as well as those individuals or groups who promote social
justice through their creative endeavors” means STD carrying adulterers and violent rappers fit their meaning of “people with outstanding achievements”.
The NAACP Image Awards is the nation’s premier event
celebrating the outstanding achievements and performances of
people of color in the arts (motion picture, television, recording,
and literature), as well as those individuals or groups who promote social
justice through their creative endeavors.
Chris Brown and Rihanna could be reunited on the red carpet of this Thursday’s NAACP Image Awards. The two singing sensations are both nominated as outstanding recording artists at the 40th annual awards show. Voting is still underway by members of the civil rights organization.
Relations between these onetime lovebirds are anything but civil following the events of early Sunday morning. Brown has been charged with making criminal threats against Rihanna. An altercation allegedly left Rihanna with bruises shortly after the couple left — in a rented Lamborghini — the star-studded party thrown annually by recording exec Clive Davis. Both were nominated for Grammy Awards, and Brown was scheduled to sing “Forever” Sunday night.
When Gold Derby contacted the NAACP Image Awards for an update on whether Brown and/or Rihanna plan to attend Thursday night, a rep said, “We haven’t received any word yet.” However, both Brown and Rihanna have canceled or postponed other scheduled events this upcoming weekend, so their chances of appearing at the Image Awards looks slim.
At the NAACP Image Awards airing live on Fox Thursday and hosted by Halle Berry and Tyler Perry, Chris Brown â€” who won best male artist last year â€” faces off against Common, 2006 champ, Jamie Foxx, John Legend, and will.i.am. For best female artist, Rihanna contends against Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson and three-time winner Alicia Keys.
Personally I would vote for Rihanna. What’s a better image than a Grammy winner with half her face smashed in because she gave her famous R&B singer boyfriend herpes from a rap legend? Nothing. That’s what.
