  1. I’m surprised Michael Jackson wasn’t included in this. Shouldn’t there have been any (dis)honorable mentions?

  2. Bla bla bla now a days you guys don’t have any new concepts pulling out old sh*t out saying same thing what we already know
    Grow up!!

  3. The media hates Chris Brown more than the fans. But never say anything about Rihanna, knowing she was probably equally as wrong in the situation. Both should’ve been held accountable

  4. Chris Brown’s music career became way more successful after he punched her. Look at album sales, how many top ten hits he had, etc etc.

  5. R Kelly probably started a mini baby boom singlehandedly. He has waaaay too much great music to just forget about. You might start to question the lyrics more, but you don’t just forget the man’s discography.

  6. Chris brown is not known more for his crimes 🙄🙄 I don’t wanna be that person but maybe it’s white people who only know him for that
