Chris Brown and Rihanna to perform at the Grammys for the first time since assault
Chris Brown has been confirmed to perform at the Grammys this year, and so will Rihanna. It will be the first time the former couple will be at the Grammys at the same since their 2008 incident.
Here’s what CBS News is reporting:
Chris Brown will perform at this year’s Grammy Awards, the event where his career almost ended three years ago. Brown admitted to assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna at a pre-Grammy party in 2009 and is serving five years of probation for the felony attack. A source told The Associated Press on Monday that Brown will hit the stage at Sunday’s show. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because Brown’s performance has not been officially announced.
After the attack, Brown’s reputation plummeted, but he has since bounced back, releasing multiple mixtapes and the multi-hit album, “F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies).” The CD is nominated for three Grammys, including best R&B album. Rihanna also will perform at the show. She’s nominated for four awards, including the top prize — album of the year — for her platinum effort “Loud.”
Brown and Rihanna were supposed to perform at the 2009 Grammys, but that changed after Brown attacked the pop singer in the early morning hours before the awards show. Since then, Brown has not attended the Grammys, although he was nominated for three awards last year.
The Grammys will air live on CBS this Sunday from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
I am happy to see that both of them have moved on, and are doing great.
Make it about the music.
