    Because all of a sudden, she 'requires' the boost in popularity and her 'best' decision is collaborate with Chris brown. Forget other possible artists who are more talented. Pop culture has an attention span as an ant, my husband says, and she can't help but cling to this. Poor thing, gets beat up, then acquires his help. This isn't about talent anymore. Let me guess.... Happily ever after this?
