The Date: September 2, 2009
The Moment: Chris gave his first interview following the much-publicized February 2009 Rihanna incident to Larry King on Larry King Live and took over Twitter's trending topics list thanks to—of all things—his bowtie.
Call It A Comeback: A lot of people called this a colossal failure the day after the interview aired. But we think it was really the first step in repairing Breezy's public image following the 2009 Grammy incident. That the bowtie took on such a life of itself helped people associate Chris with something other than what happened with Rihanna. And that was important for his career at the time.
