Did Chris Brown just sink Rihanna's Battleship?
R&B bad boy Chris Brown appears to be slamming Rihanna in a freestyle rap he posted on his Twitter page Wednesday night.
Over an instrumental of Kanye West's already controversial "Theraflu," Brown dismisses an unnamed ex-girlfriend, calling her promiscuous.
The singer-rapper, who plead guilty to assaulting Rihanna in February 2009, raps, "Don't f—k with my old b-tches like a bad fur, every industry n----a done had her."
He adds, "Treat it like a pumpkin just to smash her. B-tches breaking codes but I'm the password."
According to rumors, Brown and Rihanna's 2009 altercation was sparked when the "Battleship" actress obtained the password to Brown's cell phone, retrieved a message from another woman and confronted him. Rihanna is reportedly upset about the song and has since stopped following Brown on Twitter.
Brown, however, dismissed claims that the lyrics are about Rihanna. "Assumptions! I didn't say any names so if u took offense to it then its something you feel guilty about," he said on Twitter Thursday.
What bothers me most about Chris Brown and Rihanna is their level of irresponsibility. They regularly exploit their images by saying and doing things with the intent to provoke a reaction, then they get upset when a reporter or Twitter follower calls them to task.
Just two months ago, they were enjoying defending their decisions to collaborate on Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" and Brown's "Turn Up The Music."
Even aside from the alleged Rihanna disses, Brown's "Theraflu" is wrong on many levels. It contains too many expletives to count, it's chock-full of braggadocios lyrics that even rappers would find annoying, and takes even more shots at other nameless people.
If Brown had any sense, he would rethink the sentiment behind the song's opening line: "My bank accountant telling me to calm down."
Maybe his bank accountant is giving him advice in the best interest of his finances.
