Finally! Chris Brown withdraws from running for Kids Choice Awards



Before I continue, this month (March) is Women’s History Month.  It’s a time to reflect on all of the accomplishments and advances women have made throughout history.  In this context, I was really hoping that Rihanna was going to come out and take a stand for the benefit of women and girls all over the world, but it does not appear that way.  Let’s just hope, she reaches a healthy place for herself in the short term and hopefully be able to take that stand against violence sometime in the future.

Back to my regularly scheduled program (and, no, Diddy did not invent that phrase young folks)

nickelodeon KCA 2009

You’d have to be under a rock to at least not have heard Chris Brown or Rihanna’s name over the past month, not to mention the horrific admission from Chris Brown that he beat the hell out of Rihanna.  I’ve stood back from it a bit, knowing there are so many people reporting every single move they make.  However, I was upset like many out there (parents or not) that Nickelodeon was keeping Chris Brown on the ballot for the Kids Choice Awards.

Just released from Associated Press is news that Chris Brown has withdrawn his name from the awards show scheduled for March 28, 2009.

I am disappointed in Nickelodeon, however.  Not taking him off the ballot really sends a negative message to children that admitted criminal actions have no consequences.

Is anyone boycotting Nickelodeon as a result of their decision?

Are you glad that Chris Brown’s camp took the initiative to withdraw him from the Kids Choice Awards?


  1. I agree. What on earth is everyone thinking? A local radio station has stopped playing his songs, and people seem to be upset about it….. they defend him. Anyone who’s ever been in a relationship with a person that is capable of doing something like this, not just romantic relationships, knows where she is headed. The fact is that she will have to learn the hard way, but for people to make excuses and defend him seems preposterous to me.

    The only logical reasoning I can even begin to imagine is ignorance – people who have never been there and don’t understand the consequences. This is a person whom our youth greatly admires, and he is sending so many mixed messages to not only the young men, but also young ladies – those who look up to her as well. It is a very sad situation.

    All I have to say is what I recently said to one of his defenders – I can only hope that she’s as lucky next time.

    ugh… it seems like chris brown is getting away with it. they r young enough that they could actually get through this, but probably not together, and with A LOT of counseling. I mean shoooo… he beat her near unconscious!!! what does this say to young women. Jay Z please get in there and help Rihana put things in perspective!

  3. Whenever I see that picture of Rihana I think about the special effects makeup that it must have taken to make that happen. Follow the money and see how much Chris Brown benefitted from this as well as Rihanna. If she really took a beating like that, she would have easily had brain damage.
