PREACH IT! Unless you're Chris Brown. In which case, don't preach it. Be silent.
During an interview on the radio show Mojo in the Morning, Brown put the Tiger Woods scandal in context for us.
“I know my fans gave me a second chance,” said the convicted Rihanna-beater, currently serving five years' probation for the attack. “I think people always deserve a second chance.
“Whatever [Woods’] personal life is, and this goes for me and him, his personal life is his personal life. Nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on anybody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them.”
That goes for “me and him,” eh? OK. The you-can’t-judge-me argument could be made regarding Woods, because, hey, he didn’t beat anybody. He just cheated on his wife a lot.
But Chris, here’s news for you:
It’s part of your sentence. You know, the one you got when we judged you.
