According to Wikipedia (I know), Chris Brown’s Rihanna incident “negatively affected his career as a singer and all-around entertainer.” Two years later, though, can we really say that’s true? Somehow this guy seems to have overcome what initially had all the makings of a career-killer; what’s more, he’s been a total dick about it, mocking haters in “Look at Me Now,” his excellent Top 10 collaboration with Diplo and Lil Wayne. America, folks. With Kelly Rowland, T-Pain and Tyga.
