The Popdust Files: Beef, brian mcknight, chris brown, feuds, twitter

What happens when, after years of musical near-silence, a joke song R&B elder Brian McKnight (yes, the “Back At One” guy) writes about a particular not-entirely-printable sexual act becomes a half-laughed-at, half-laughed-with viral hit? A Twitter feud with Chris Brown, naturally. You can’t have a 2012 quasi-comeback without one.

THE PARTICPIANTS: Brian McKnight, former crooner now resigned to explicitly provocative and/or self-aware–read: trollgazey–how-to odes to pleasing women; Chris Brown, the antimatter to remorse.

THE TWEETS:

Brian McKnight, seeming a bit resigned, asks for career advice:

 

(There are also digs at R. Kelly later on; he hasn’t answered, but he hasn’t tweeted since May.) And interspersed are these from Chris Brown, which we’re somewhat surprised haven’t been deleted.

DRAMA RATING: 2.5 out of 5. If only because Chris Brown getting upset with someone over Twitter is not news, and because this particular detour in Brian McKnight’s career doesn’t seem to be one he’s entirely happy about.
