Sunday afternoon, as I was cruising down the Chicago River, enjoying the rich architecture of the Chi, I get a text informing me that Chris Brown is at Virginia Centre Commons with none other than Rihanna. OK, so let’s face it, they are an item and although I love Rihanna, I am getting over her “live like Beyonce, and you will become Beyonce” lifestyle.. You know, with the “Irreplaceable” type songs, and fakin’ the love with another musician… Did I mention that I love Irreplaceable, and all the songs that sound like it? (Neyo’s “Go-On”, Rihanna’s “Take a Bow”, Chris Brown’s “With You”, Jordin Sparks’ “Tattoo”… etc)
OK, you’re right! So let’s talk about where Chris Breezy and Rihanna were spotted..
Lims. The store. OK, you Richmond/Petersburg cats know what Lims is, but for those of you in other areas of the world, Lims is a store that sells fashions from the urban lines.. such as Rocawear, Sean John, ALL the way down to Nee-Nee and J Money that decided to make some shirts and jeans with characters on them. NY peeps, this is sorta like Dr. Jayz.. Now, if that’s your thing, then you do it and do it well, but Lims is no longer for me. Last time I got something there was back in college when velour suits were hot for all of one season (I got a hot Brown Sean John joint with cream piping.. SICK), but back in high school, Lims was associated with FUBU, and therefore it was FORBIDDEN. Now, Lims is OK if you want to find some Rocawear clothing.. which I hope is the reason Chris and Rihanna were spotted in there, especially since Jay Z is Rihanna’s “big brother” <was Big’s brother, used to be Dame and Big’s brother…. oops, I got carried away… being in Chicago got me in Kanye mode>
