All right, world, Chris Brown
released a new music video. Le sigh. Surprisingly, however, he appears to make a move in the right direction in terms of rebuilding his reputation as an acceptable human being (maybe), by centering the video around a Michael Jackson tribute. "She Ain't You" explores the legend of MJ, complete with tilted bowler hat, suave suit, and signature Jackson dance moves, not to mention the astounding similarity that the song's melody has to Michael Jackson's "Human Nature". I would say that this video could be the beginning of Brown's rebuilt career, but apparently he doesn't mind tossing out a promising rebirth after years of shunning (AKA the time he celebrated his album release by throwing a chair out of a window). So while he is undeniably talented, and the music video is a nice gesture, everything he does still makes me feel awkward. Almost, Chris Brown. Almost!
