Unfortunately it’s “To Be Continued”
By DiMarkco Chandler:
The Chris Brown/Drake narrative seems to have a life of its own as it feeds our appetite for not only blood and gore but also romance. And why not, rap music along with explicate sexual lyrics found in many of the top songs on the radio have modern civilization starving for real romance. Hence the Brown-Rihanna-Drake triangle feeds a starved culture its necessary diet of true romance, and as you can see by the number of stories that have frequented the media air waves; we can’t get enough.
It’s the new real life Romeo & Juliet story featuring Brown, Drake, and Rihanna, nonetheless, our hope is that the whole thing will only amount to just a few lawsuits. My gut feeling tells me, however, that this thing will turn into something more like a Greek or Shakespearian tragedy.
Love is a funny thing. It drives different people to do different things. Reports have recently been swirling about Rihanna’s depression over not being able to get back together with Brown. By the same token, it’s interesting that some of the same rumors have been circulating about Brown wanting to get back together with Rihanna. Drake appears to be the odd man out in this equation, and I’m not sure he is altogether happy with that role.
It’s really starting to shape up into an uncontrollable tragic narrative, and the order of events couldn’t make this clearer.
We are spectators watching the whole thing unfold a little bit at a time. Just yesterday, Brown was fanning the flames of this feud when he took to his Twitter account and lunched another one of his typical Chris Brown tirades, tweeting; “It upsets u that I’m not this hoodlum enraged, young black man you wanna portray me as. They did it to Mike… I can handle it! #imdone.” He just can’t walk away, and that’s exactly how tragedy is played out; it orders your behavior.
Let’s hope that we are misreading these signs and take the stance that this too will pass. But it’s not up to us, it’s up to Chris Brown. He can perhaps stop this before it’s too late. Though I know that the Greeks were unable to prevent their own tragic outcomes, and Shakespeare’s tragedies seemed to follow suite. Unfortunately, it appears that neither will we be able to reverse the inevitable until it’s far too late. Just ask “Antigone.”
