Why We Don't Want Chris Brown to Have a Reality Show

Now that Chris Brown is free, word has it that BET is trying to snag him for a reality show and is in search of a production company. But does Breezy really need a reality show? For musicians, these shows can be used to revive careers or show a different side of that artist. His career is alive and well and thanks to social media we've seen many sides of the 25-year-old. Flip through and read why Chris Brown having a reality show is unnecessary.

There won't be much mystery left to him.

Though many hate on Breezy, no one really knows what he is like behind the scenes—and that’s a good thing. People like Beyonce have maintained their image because no matter what is put on blogs or the television, no one really knows what she is like, which makes it even sweeter when we do get glimpses into their life. He already lets us in a great deal on Instagram and Twitter, so with a reality show, there won’t be much to wonder about when it comes to him anymore. Do we really want that?

It could be exposure overkill.

Chris Brown is already one of the biggest musicians of this generation, which means a lot of (negative and positive) attention. Between his Instagram and TMZ, we see enough of the “Loyal” singer. Having a reality show would just give him too much exposure.  

The legal troubles may dominate the conversation instead of the music.

Yes he is out of the county jail, but he still has legalities that have be dealt with.This means more court dates and a possible trial. Capturing all that on camera may lead to his run ins with the law outshining what matters, the music.

The cameras may push Breezy over the edge.

Chris Brown still may be a little fragile right now. Following a stressful rehab stint and jail time, Breezy still needs time to be with loved ones and heal from everything he has been through in the past few years. He has yet to take an extended amount of time to stay out of the spotlight and work on himself. Having cameras in his face during vulnerable times may set him off in ways we may not want to see.

It may not be good for his relationship.

Chris and Karrueche seem to be on good terms and bringing cameras and pre-scripted scenarios into the mix may cause unnecessary drama. Imagine what rudeness RiRi would bring a la Twitter if this show hit the tube? It may be juicy to watch but could potentially run his ride-or-die-off.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
