Need to get something off your chest? Apparently “Theraflu” is the solution.
The song wherein Kanye West debuted his romance with Kim Kardashian was recently appropriated by Chris Brown, who lets loose in a few freestyle verses — and Rihanna’s not happy about it.
At one point on the track, Brown woos us with the lines, “Don’t f— with my old bitch, it’s like a bad fur / Every industry n—– done had her / Shook the tree like a pumpkin just to smash her / Bitch is breaking codes, but I’m the password.”
The identity of this “old bitch” is up for interpretation, obviously, but Rihanna (who, in the past, has been romantically linked to Drake, Justin Timberlake, and Josh Hartnett) seemed to have a hunch. After Breezy debuted the song on his Twitter, RiRi tweeted, “Aw, poor dat #neaux1currrrr” and promptly unfollowed Brown’s Twitter account.
How did Brown respond? By unfollowing her back, of course, and also tweeting, “Assumptions! I didn’t say any names so if u took offense to it then its something you feel guilty about.”
Hmm. We dunno, maybe listening to the song below will help clear things up? Let’s give it a shot:
Okay! Well, that’s a shame — it seemed like they were almost doing well for a second there. Also, someone needs to tell Brown that the original’s not actually called “Theraflu” anymore — the new name is “Way Too Cold”, Breezy.
What do you guys think of the latest entry in the Chris Brown-Rihanna diaries? Let loose in the comments.
