Ciara and Rick Ross share a dual cover the Summer 09 issue of Rap Up Magazine. Speaking of Ciara, MTV caught up with her, Singer Tyrese, former Danity Kane member Aubrey O’Day and a few others after the L.A. premiere of ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’ last night to gather their reaction on the Chris Brown’s plea deal:
“I support both artists,” said Ciara, who has toured and recorded with both Brown and Rihanna. “It’s a very personal process.”
Check out what others had to say below:
At the L.A. premiere of ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,’ news of the singer’s plea was on everyone’s mind.
“I just wish they were here,” “Transformers” co-star Tyrese said of Chris and Rihanna, explaining that the escapism of a film like “Revenge of the Fallen” is helpful during difficult times. “[It would help them] to embrace this energy at this premiere.”
“Violence is never the answer — even if provoked,” reasoned Aubrey O’Day, the former Danity Kane member and “Making the Band” star, who had just heard the news that Brown accepted a plea deal. “But with bigger issues like war, we just need to let go and forgive. Let people move on.”
“I wish them well,” explained Anthony Anderson, a star of the original “Transformers” film, who said that he’ll continue to buy Chris Brown albums whenever the troubled singer decides to move forward. “I’m not going to let a personal instance taint my opinion of someone musically.”
They all had such nice things to say but there’s been a lot of talk about Chris Brown getting off easy. Those pictures of Rihanna’s battered face are still fresh on the minds of quite a few fans and knowing that Chris will only have to pick up trash is kind of hard to deal with. Do you feel C-Breezy got a slap on the wrist or is this justice at it’s finest? Hmmmmmm?
