The outspoken entertainer has been busy promoting his latest album Royalty since its’ December 2015 release, but he took a moment to come up for air and give his two cents on a few current topics via social media.
First, Chris addressed his fans’ disappointment with his album not receiving any Grammy nominations for 2016. In a series of tweets, he spoke briefly about his appreciation for being able to have freedom in creating his music and not conforming to industry standards like “many of his peers.” He also boasted about his songwriting abilities and noted his involvement with many of the songs in current rotation on the radio before later deleting that specific tweet.
#GRAMMY? This is probably the main reason i love being free to create any kind of music I want. Too many people kiss ass And work less
Shortly after, Chris voiced his disapproval with white actor Joseph Fiennes being chosen to portray Michael Jackson in an upcoming film. Like most of us, he finds the casting choice ridiculous and disrespectful.
Y'all know y'all dead wrong to have dude play MJ. If that's the case LET ME BE SUPERMAN. Da fuck they do that at? Is that blackface?
Lastly, Chris was quick to address the latest round of accusations from his child’s mother Nia Guzman, who claims that his weed-smoking has caused their 1-year-old daughter Royalty to develop asthma. In a lengthy Instagram post that has since been deleted, Chris refuted Nia’s allegations and insisted that he doesn’t allow anyone to smoke around Royalty. He says he takes good care of his daughter and believes Nia’s claims are just another attempt to get more money out of him for child support.
