Chris Brown's Video Explains Breakup - 3 Things We Learned

View photo

Chris Brown released a video about his feelings recently.

Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran have officially broken up, Chris confirmed this week. After pictures of the R&B singer surfaced of him and Rihanna kissing in a NYC nightclub this week it was obvious Chris and Karrueche weren't going to last much longer.

"I have decided to be single to focus on my career. I love Karrueche very much but I don't want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna," Chris said in his statement.

Then, in a much hyped about video, Chris released a video on Twitter explaining the breakup. With a link to the video Chris tweeted, "The Real Chris Brown!"

Here are five things we learned from the video:

He's in love with two women

In the video Chris asks, "Is there such thing as loving two people?" He says he fell in love with Rihanna but also fell in love with someone else, meaning Karrueche. He talked about the history behind the relationship with RiRi. Chris says in the video he's not a player and not trying to be a dog; these are just his feelings and he's stressed.

He's not sorry

This video felt more of a lame excuse to Karrueche as to why he's still kissing Rihanna. Chris is trying to say he's in love with two women but really, it's pretty obvious he's still in love with his ex and clearly wants to maintain an intimate relationship with her.

"I just can't. It's too much," he says of trying to date Karrueche. If he were legitimately sorry he would talk about it in person and not in a video for the world to see.

This isn't "the real Chris Brown"

It would be cool to see Chris do a documentary, maybe something like MTV's "Diary" series where they had celebrities document their lives as a way to show fans their true selves. This video, the one Chris released, doesn't really feel like "the real Chris Brown" but instead just a way for him to save face for cheating.

The video shows Chris in the club, drinking a lot, and fooling around with girls. We already know that's his persona but the content behind the footage just felt staged. Can the real Chris Brown please stand up? If he did a real documentary about his life we could see the man behind the domestic violence, relationship with Rihanna, and successful music career.
