Cheryl Cole ‘Time To Forgive Chris Brown’

Chris Brown brutally beat his ex-girlfriend just three years, but X-Factor UK judge Cheryl Cole told In:Demand With Alex that he should be forgiven: ‘I think it’s really kind of Rihanna [to forgive Brown]. She’s come out and publicly forgiven him, really. I think it’s about time we all [forgave Brown], if I’m completely honest, if you want my opinion .I think it’s time we all moved on. That guy is talented as hell.’

Rihanna recently stopped following him on Twitter, but they have been seeing each other the past year, and in February they released two new songs they recorded together. Chris was also recently accused of lip syncing at the Billboard Music Awards. Do YOU think it’s time for Chris to be forgiven for bashing his woman in the face over and over again?

    I think it’s about time people moved on. Comparing him to guys that killed girls is a little over the top. Yeah, he hurt her but she’s moved on. Why can’t we?

    So in other words, we are…overestimating abuse of women? Unless this beating was a publicity stunt gone wrong and she wasn’t really beaten and people are trying to get Chris’s good image back without ever admitting it was a publicity stunt, I don’t see why anyone should be forgiving him ever. If I ever want some of his music, I’m not paying for it. I doubt I’ll want it, anyway.

    I think people have taken this too far. With all the bashing he gets daily, you’d think he was a serial killer, rapist or a child molester.

  • EarthChild

    He’s not ever going to be forgiven by everyone, but by being invited to perform on award shows and still doing relatively well in the industry, he’s been forgiven. I don’t know what some people want, for people to forget it ever happened? Of course they aren’t going to. I don’t like Rihanna, but I don’t think he should have hit her that night. At the same time, she should not have collaborated with him because that could have sent the wrong message to her fans. Like I said before, 20 years from now, this is what people will know him for before knowing him for his music. That is purely his fault.

    No. That’s not what anyone said nor does that statement makes sense. But what you are doing is taking a situation that happened and making it 10x worse. Chris has beaten her one time, not many times. Her didn’t kill her and is not beating his current girlfriend. To compare him to men who beat women for shits and giggles is making Rihanna even more of a victim than she already is. I don’t like his music, I don’t care if he fell off of the face of the earth. All anyone’s saying is there’s a difference between a guy who fucked up once and a guy who completely disregards women in general. The public needs to move on. I’m not saying it shouldn’t follow him for the rest of his life but he should be able to have a proper interview without the situation coming up constantly. We all fuck up and I’m sure we’ve all (or the majority of us) have hit someone in our life time. We’re not being reprimanded for the rest of my life, so why should he?

    So if he weren’t talented it would then be okay to not forgive him? I DO believe in second chances but he has NEVER shown one ounce of REAL regret for what he did. I USED to be one of those people who thought he should be forgiven until his violent GMA outburst…he can go “you know what” himself. He still hasn’t dealt with his issues and until then my feelings won’t change.

    I kinda think Riri used the assault to help sell her music like in the songs: the collab with Eminem Love The Way You Lie, Rude Boy, S&M, We Found Love (the guy in the music video resembles Chris) etc.

  • Anonymous

    I’ll forgive him when it actually seems like he’s changed and learned from his mistakes. Everytime you hear about him he’s stormed out of an interview or threw a chair through a window. It would be one thing for him to have changed but he hasn’t, he just gets mad when people bring it up but you know what that’s his own fault.

    RIHANNA was the victim and she’s clearly moved on. So why can’t everyone else? It’s times when he wins awards that makes me so upset because people can’t give him those few minutes to shine and look past what happened. The past has nothing to do with how talented he is, at all. And I think the people that still make jokes about it and are still on what happened THREE years ago are ignorant and immature. It’s way passed time to forgive him. We all make mistakes. Maybe some of you don’t know, but the way he grew up also put in his mind that what he did was okay to do. He saw how much his mom got hurt from being beaten, but it was still put in his mind that it was okay to do. The way we’re raised and what we grow up around has an effect on all of us. He’s changed, he learned his lesson and he’s grown up. So why can’t everyone else? He can’t even do a freakin’ 60 minute interview or win a DESERVED award without people attacking him. It’s ridiculous. Even if you’re not a fan, I suggest you listen to “How I Feel” by him, and I mean really listen. Makes me cry every single time. Stop attacking him, move on, he deserves a second chance too. Rihanna clearly gave him one, along with her family. So just stop. I’ll forever be Team Breezy and I will forever stan for Chrianna <3

    Cuz he hasn’t shown he’s worth forgiving. Rihanna needs to move on for HERSELF, for her own personal healing, the public (or Rihanna for that matter) doesn’t owe him shit. He’s shown no real remorse of desire to change.

    Alright. Let’s forgive murders and child molesters if they have musical talent too! I mean, who cares if they just killed a few people or hurt/touched a few children. They’re very talented singers and shouldn’t be judged on past mistakes.

    Forgiving chris brown is just as stupid as what I said above. Just at a slightly less degree.

  • Anonymous

    first of all people don’t beat their spouses or offspring for shits and giggles they do it because they are angry. and just because he did it ONCE does not make it all right, especially if u have seen the pictures of rihannas face. he didn’t just lose control and slap her once, he slammed her face against a car window. and he has given plenty of interviews with out the incident coming up. she may have forgiven him but why should the public forgive him too. the public isn’t asked to forgive other people who have beaten their girlfriends etc. he didn’t just fuck up he really fucked up

    As much as I am for forgiveness I was waiting for Chris to say something like ‘I’m really sorry please forgive me. I didn’t mean to hurt Rhianna.’ I don’t know what kind of apology he game but I guess myself and the world wanted more.

    Think about it this way. If a guy beat and hurt you as bad as riannah did, would you forgive him? Would you let a guy who thought you could of trusted get away clean after what he did because everyone makes mistakes and it was a few years ago? People don’t always change in a few years.

    I didn’t want an apology from him. I wasn’t his victim. I just wanted him to show that he understood the gravity of his actions. I thought he should work Domestic violence center or something to show he GENUINELY gave a fuck about what he did. I don’t need disingenuous, public apologies that he gave.

    While Rihanna is free to do whatever she wants and is allow to forgive Chris Brown, here’s why the rest of us shouldn’t. Chris Brown is a highly publicized figure and so was the incidence. By welcoming he back with open arms like at the Grammys, we’re basically saying what he did, did’t matter. Who care that he hit a women, THEY don’t matter.

    He should be forgiven. End of story. Rihanna has forgiven him, she even dropped the charges. It’s time that the public moves on and realizes people make mistakes and often learn from them. Not every man that puts his hands on a woman once, would do it again. Whatever happened between him and Ri, is between them and not for the public to manipulate into what they think happened. Comparing him to men who beat and kill women is irrelevant because he has killed no one. Honestly, people just want to have an opinion because he’s a celebrity. If it was some man you knew and were close with, you probably would have forgiven him by now. forgive and never forget.

    It’s disgusting how if you’re famous, you get a free pass to everything in life. Have you guys ever read the police report on what happen? I felt like I was gonna throw up halfway through reading it, he was literally trying to kill her.

    Yes, sometimes people deserve a second chance but when has he ever shown he deserves one? When he threw a chair out the window on GMA? When he’s trying to spin the story like the media is attacking him for no reason and that he’s the victim? I don’t think he’s even sorry for what he did, sorry that he hurt his career, yeah, but is he actually sorry for what he did?

    If Rihanna wants to forgive Chris, that’s her decision. Would I make the same decision if I were in her position? No. But I’m not in her shoes, and neither is Cheryl. I don’t think anyone except Rihanna can forgive Chris, per say, because nothing was done to anyone other than Rihanna, but I think people can be extremely wary and untrusting of him, and that’s their right to. If they feel unsafe or feel he’s violent, they can feel that way.

    He gave exactly that kind of apology in court. However, I think it’s bullshit. He can be sorry, but no one can cause that amount of damage and then say, “I didn’t mean to hurt her.” That’s like shooting off a gun and saying, “I didn’t expect anyone to be killed.” You knew what was happening, you just didn’t care. That’s exactly what happened with Chris Brown.

    I don’t think you can just forgive someone that. What you can do, is look past it and move on. It’ll be something that has etched their personalities forever, and you can’t just say. Oh yeah, sure, you beat a woman, but I’ll forgive you. However, you can say. Yes, you’ve changed and you deserve a second unbiased chance.
