Chris Brown’s new neck tattoo of a woman’s face with a black eye and stitched lips may put the nail in the coffin of his career.
Ironically Rihanna was busy getting tatted not too long ago, and decided to get a tattoo that celebrated her late grandmother as an Egyptian goddess.
Brown, on the other hand, got a tattoo that appears to be celebrating the very thing that sent his career on a downward spiral.
Whether it’s intentional or not, the bruised and battered face on Brown’s neck is only another reminder of his vicious attack on ex-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009.
“His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw,” said Brown’s representative, who has been struggling to fix the R&B bad boy’s image.
Although the tattoo does resemble a rough sketch of a sugar skull, one of the key elements of a sugar skull is the bright colors… Brown’s tattoo is only a black outline.
Also, a picture was released of the MAC design that Brown’s representative claims inspired the tattoo, but the decision to tattoo a MAC design that is obviously very reminiscent of Brown’s crime of domestic violence is still quite an idiotic choice for permanent body art.
Apparently, Brown’s fans are starting to feel the same.
One bad decision after another, starting with the Rihanna attack in 2009, flaunting a comically large chain that said “Oops” only weeks after the attack, then smashing a window after a “Good Morning America” interview, a vulgar tweet to his “haters” after winning Best R&B album at the 2012 Grammys, and of course his latest club brawl with Drake, has team Breezy fan’s tired of defending him… and perhaps tired of his music as well.
According to Billboard, the “Don’t Wake Me Up” crooner’s latest album isn’t doing so hot anymore. Back in July his latest album, Fortune, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 with a whopping 135,000 sales in the first week alone.
Ever since then, sales have come to an agonizing slow, only selling an additional 149,000 since the first week which is far less than what the R&B singer’s usual sales are like.
The young singer turned actor seems to be dedicated to ruining his own career, and apparently an anti-domestic violence campaign in London would love to help him with that.
In at least one HMV store in London, all of Brown’s albums were plastered with a very unique type of warning label.
Now in addition to the parental advisory label, the Fortune CD’s also had a label which read, “WARNING: Do not buy this album! This man beats women.”
The store reportedly has nothing to do with the labels and it is believed that the stickers are the workings of an anti-domestic violence campaigner.
If the young singer/rapper doesn’t get his act together soon, he may see his entire career fall to pieces at the mere age of 23.
