Note to Reader: This blog post has been put “under review” as we have had growing pains in developing the technology we use to identify twins, replicas and zombies. The eyes behind the technology are getting better, so as you read this piece note that if you are troubled by its conclusions that we will be looking at it in more depth and with better eyes. For the time being, it is speculation.
Straight is younger than I am, and so has more knowledge of the current pop scene that I do. This is nice as he fills me as we go along on the people we are uncovering. Take a look in the comments under the Drake and Rihanna posts down below for his remarks (and also others) as they add a lot to the background for those posts.
On this one he tells me the following:
“Here’s a couple [of] things to know. Rihanna and Chris Brown are both megastars with hit songs on the radio every week. They have been dating on and off for 12-13 years. In 2006 Brown assaulted Rihanna and left her bruised.
That story was HUGE and really blackwashed him and made Rihanna’s career take off. Now it’s obvious it was fake. Since then Rihanna is one of the biggest pop stars in the world and Chris Brown is famous again, constantly involved in some sort of drama. He’s a big player in the pop tabloid scene.”
Once nice thing about Chris Brown in matching up photos is the tattoos. I can usually make them match up too, reassuring me that I am on the right track.
But even saying that, Brown was difficult. I came up with six photos of one of him, and three of the twin. On the twin, two have no tattoos, which means these are either younger photos, or that the twin never got them, or that he has some fake ones put on when he is doing the body double routine. I do not know the answer there. Actually, don’t care.
Here are the six of Chris Brown, Twin #1:
And here are three of the twin:
I am going to do everyone a favor here and not split faces, though that method is tried and true and indeed convinced me that Brown is twins. The differences will be obvious to you. Here are one of each randomly chosen, side by side:
Again, the primary difference between the two is ear height. All others difference are slight. They are identical twins.
Notice in the photo on the right that the neck is mostly covered, possibly done to hide the tattoos, indicating they are fake, or that they do not match up. Twins present difficult management problems, not appearing in public together just one. Continuity is another. The Beatles mastered this feat by using Jane Asher as a beard, dating both “Paul”s”. Perhaps Rihanna is a beard in this regard too, one of the Rihanna’s anyway.
Straight indicates above that the conflict between Brown and Rihanna was fake, and I am only left to wonder which Brown inflicted fake injuries on which Rihanna? Again, don’t care.
By the way, we both realize that by focusing on twins who are also pop stars that the blog is taking on a US Weekly quality. In the future I’ll be interspersing twins with Zombies and also writing about other matters having nothing to do with photos. I do regard all the twinning we see as a layer on an onion, the back story perhaps going back decades. I don’t think all these twins are accidental occurrences, nor do they randomly become famous.
And, of course, our work on Zombies is a search for truth, as with each one we uncover we is making it more apparent that news is fake, and the people who bring it to us are fakes too. US Weekly would never write about that.
