August Alsina just CANNOT stay out of the headlines, which would be great if it focused on his music. After just recovering from that hostile 106 & Park Interview where he snapped on co-host Keshia Chante, the R&B crooner posted a picture of himself hanging from a noose on popular social media site Instagram on Wednesday, May 20. The visual was apparently used in his latest music video. This case of flawed judgement has garnered Alsina backlash from his fans via twitter and could have a detrimental effect on his career.
This pattern of acting out in the media that Alsina is developing and then adversely apologizing is getting old...quickly. All these antics are distracting from his true talent and distancing him from his fan base. In this day and age when it comes to music artists, talent is simply not enough; they must have mass media appeal as well. At this rate, Alsina could have all the talent in the world, but if his team does not make better judgement calls then it will not get the shine is deserves.
