Back in December 2010, Keri Hilson told MTV News that Chris Brown had “learned from his mistakes.” She may or may not still feel that way, considering his violent outburst backstage at “Good Morning America” earlier this week, but the incident didn’t stop her from releasing the new video for “One Night Stand” — her latest single which features, you guessed it, Chris Brown.
In the video, Brown plays a tattooed car mechanic who romances Hilson in a dimly-lit garage. Both Hilson and Brown sport blond hair. There’s a fog machine involved. And a dance-battle of sorts. But, as far as we can make out, no chairs or windows or humans were injured in the making of the video. We’re thinking that’s because Hilson didn’t mention Rihanna even once.
“People are already putting [Brown] back in their good graces, ’cause they see his remorse,” Hilson said to MTV in December. “And I know people are saying, ‘Is he really a man? You have him on your album.’ I mean, yeah. To me, a man is someone, you don’t go backwards in life. You learn from your mistakes, and you don’t do it again. You show remorse, and you move on. You move forward onto bigger and better things. That’s a man trait.”
On Friday, Hilson also tweeted this flirty message, which has us thinking the “GMA” incident didn’t change her mind about Brown:
Chris brown looks great as a mechanic!! Did the video give you a new fantasy? Lol. Me too.
