All the fuss with Rihanna and Karrueche Tran wasn’t for nothing, particularly that the Real Chris Brown video. For being more than an R&B star with a unique style, Chris Brown got a modeling deal with Wilhelmina Men.
Kanye West is somewhere biting his lips over Chris Brown getting praised for his unique style and getting a modeling job on top. The 23-year-old singer has been getting a lot of attention, while he is still under a lot of scrutiny for bruising Rihanna a few years ago. Some say that’s part of the past now and obviously Rihanna is one of them. Now companies are looking at Chris Brown in a different light, forgetting about the past too.
“We recognize that Chris Brown is not just a voice, a dance or a lyric; he is a multi-faceted artist with a unique take on style, and we are excited to translate and extend his brand into these industries” reads a statement by Taylor Hendrich, director of Wilhelmina Men, the international modeling agency.
Chris Brown now joins celebrities such as Fergie, Keri Hilson and Natasha Bedingfield as the models for the agency. Obviously, Chris Brown makes for a colorful addition to the agency’s celebrity models, given his abusive past. Which by the way, Chris Brown is done apologizing for.
“I can’t hate people for making judgment on me or making a decision of liking me or not liking me” the 23-year-old rapper told MTV during a recent interview. “All I can do is try to be better as a person, and I’m good with knowing everything isn’t always going to be perfect” he told MTV for a “This Is How I Made It” interview.
Well, see it’s not that people won’t forget about it and start seeing you in better colors, but all this Rihanna thing keeps this thing alive. It’s a red flag and many are outraged that a woman once battered by a man, forgives him, defends him and then seeks another relationship. It’s a sensitive issue that some fear it will be a bad example for many fans.
