Chris Brown’s unsurprisingly twisted reaction to his fight with Frank Ocean has shocked many, but really he is just the latest in a long line of delusional pop stars that believe they have the ultimate beef with Jesus Christ. Via The Guardian:
It’s an astonishing move on all kinds of levels. But of course, the Pop Star God Complex has a long and illustrious history.
