3 Reasons Why Chris Brown Should Not Perform With Rihanna At The 2013 Grammy Awards
January 10, 2013 - 1:18 pm
Reason #1: Rihanna deserves to have her own moment at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
Did the Grammy organizers select Chris Brown to perform at the Grammys? No, they didn't. They selected Rihanna—and rightfully so. Once again, Rihanna had a huge year as far as music goes in 2012. So, she should get the opportunity to celebrate that year by having everyone in the music industry watch her perform. She shouldn't have to share the spotlight with Chris Brown and have everyone talking about things other than her music career. For once, she should be able to make headlines simply for her contributions to music and not for what she does in her personal life.
Reason #2: If Chris Brown and Rihanna perform together at the 2013 Grammy Awards, we'll all be forced to talk about what happened the last time they made news at the Grammys.
If Chris Brown wants to let the world know that he and Rihanna are officially an item again, that's fine. But, if he does it at the Grammys, every single news outlet that covers the reunion will be forced to talk about what happened between the couple at the 2009 Grammy Awards. And, once again, we'll all be forced to talk about why their reunion isn't a good thing. That seems like the wrong foot to get off on if you're Chris Brown and Rihanna and you want people to take your rekindled love seriously.
Reason #3: They don't have a song together that warrants a Grammy performance.
If Chris Brown and Rihanna do a duet at the Grammys, what song are they going to do? "Cake"? Ugh. "Nobody's Business"? UGH. Sorry, guys. But, you don't really have a collaboration that deserves to be performed on the Grammys stage this year. So, how about saving the shared performance for next year? That'll give you plenty of time to come up with something epic to perform. And, it'll give all of us the chance to come to terms with the fact that Chrianna is back together again. Assuming, of course, Chrianna really is back together again.
