Chris Brown is gracious in defeat

Chris Brown

Despite the fact that his album was a critical flop, Chris Brown somehow managed to get a Grammy nomination, because … I’m honestly not really sure why. Maybe the Grammys enjoy it when people unironically compare themselves to Jesus? The world may never know. Either way, Chris lost the awards to Frank Ocean, and behaved about as well as you would expect him too. Via TMZ

Chris Brown handled his Grammy defeat to Frank Ocean last night with dignity and class … KIDDING!!! … he was totally disrespectful. Ocean edged out Brown and Miguel to capture the award for Best Urban Contemporary Album. While most people stood and applauded Ocean … Brown stayed in his seat — which just happened to be front row and center, in clear view of the cameras.

All right, new rule here: If the Grammys are going to keep nominating Chris, then they have to nominate him in categories alongside people he punched in the face, because seeing karma back-hand him is the most delicious schadenfreude money can buy. Seriously, if you could have the awards handed out by a guy in a Santa suit, like that scene in Mean Girls, that would be even better. “Let’s see … a Grammy for Adele, two for Frank Ocean — You go, Frank — aaaaaaaaand none for Chris Brown.”
