Chris Brown turned up at Elton John‘s AIDS Foundation gala last weekend looking like the worm from Labyrinth and started bragging to reporters about how he and Elton are BFF, which is hard to believe since he’s a scumbag who hates gay people and Elton is… decidedly gay and, I have to assume, anti-violence and domestic abuse. I’m not sure what’s going on here.
From The New York Post:
“I met Elton about a year ago, and he’s been a good friend to me,” Brown revealed, adding, “So it is great to be here tonight to support him.” Of the possibility of working with John in the future, Brown said, “Music is music. It transcends everything, so I would love it if we could work together.”
I feel like turning up to this was Chris’s way of trying to prove that he’s this peaceful, harmonic soul – a bullshit image he’s attempted (in words) to convey in recent months. It’s like when white people insist they’re not racist because one of their best friends is black – just… no. I don’t think Chris Brown gives a shit about Elton John, the AIDS Foundation or anything else, but it was a night out while Rihanna was busy “rehearsing for tour” (read: smoking copious amounts of weed and Instagramming it) and it gave him an excuse to dress like Johnny Depp‘s understudy from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
