Chris Brown isn’t so bad.
The Grammy Award-winning singer has faced a countless number of scandals, public feuds, legal issues and wrongdoings since the start of his singing career more than ten years ago.
Unfortunately, many of Brown’s dissensions have followed him and his longstanding career, most notably, the continuous theatrics following the 2009 assault on his then-girlfriend, Rihanna.
Breezy, however, isn’t just a spoiled, rich pop star who thinks he is indispensable to the world. Oftentimes, Brown does actually get it right. Here are three things the Virginia native should be praised for.
Being A Good Father: In March 2015, news broke that Brown fathered a child with model and Texas native, Nia Guzman. When the world found out about Breezy’s daughter, the bundle of joy was already 9 months old. But instead of being a deadbeat dad, the singer stepped up and became a super dad to the seed of his loins, Royalty.
Now, almost two years after taking on the responsibilities of parenthood, it’s pretty clear that daddy duties sit well with the singer. The 27-year-old has revealed on several occasions that being a father changed him and that his world is officially complete.
Charitable Work: Brown is no stranger to charity work. Over the past several years, Brown has generated a plethora of events to benefit different charities, including Symphonic Love and Best Buddies, AIDS Project Los Angeles and Stand Up To Cancer.
Last Christmas, Breezy surprised one woman and her three kids with a car and presents — something that Brown was happy to do, and no, not for publicity. “I’ve been very fortunate and blessed with so much in my life and I always thought that it was supposed to be that way,” he wrote on Instagram.
“I was selfish, arrogant, and cold hearted. I’m able to bless and inspire so many others and I realize that now. This woman has dealt with domestic abuse through her life and her 3 wonderful children had to experience that. I see myself when I looked into their eyes,” he explained.
Brown added, “The amount of strength this woman has is remarkable. I hope I could make their Christmas a great one. I hope the kids love all the toys and things I got for them. And for moms. I hope I could put a smile on this family’s face.”
Good Music: One thing we can always count on when it comes to Chris Brown is that he will always put out good music. In August 2015, Brown celebrated 10 years in the music business. This all includes 10 million albums sold worldwide, 60 million singles sold worldwide, 3.5 billion YouTube views, 2.3 billion audio streams worldwide, 1 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album – ‘F.A.M.E’, 14 BET Awards – 31 nominations, No. 1 rhythm radio AirPlay artist 2012 & 2014 and 19 No. 1 hits.
