Remember I posted Chris Brown’s “heart-warming performance” earlier in the week, where he performed a Michael Jackson tribute at the BET awards? Yes, this very video. Well, some of you readers thought that he was crying big old crocodile tears in order to appear sympathetic to the viewers — and his former fans — and you know what? Looks like you bitches were right.
An exclusive source spoke to Us Magazine and told a reporter that the singer with the most violent tendencies put eye drops in his eyes before the big performance, and that’s what you were actually seeing:
“He rubbed it [eye drops] in and he started crying.”
Brown was filmed at last night’s BET awards, dancing and singing a tribute to the late Michael Jackson. At the 4:30 mark in the video, you can see Brown sobbing like there’s no tomorrow. And prior to that, he danced like there’s no tomorrow. And in either case, I’ve got Paula Abdul on my mind now, so, thanks.
You know who needs to disappear? Chris Brown. That fool just cannot help himself. He’s still talking about how the whole “beating up Rihanna” thing was really hard on his reputation and that he’s actually a really nice guy. This morning he did that whole routine for the Mojo in the Morning radio show and he attempted to keep his shit relevant by relating himself to another bro we all hate right now, Tiger Woods.
“I think it’s cool man, I think people always deserve a second chance, and I know if my fans give me a second chance and people give me a second chance..whatever his personal life is and I think this goes for me and him; his personal life is his personal life – like nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on somebody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them—like they might be a fan, or might support what they’re doing but like if he plays golf, like that’s his sport, that’s his hobby, that’s his love, that’s what people love him for. They don’t love him for the other stuff that they talking bout. I think, even with me, like I do music, I sing songs, like I’m an entertainer, I’m a performer, but people make mistakes, I think people have to realize that everybody’s human, and the good thing is if you learn from your mistakes, then, then that’s a part of life, and I think that’s a part of living and learning from mistakes and becoming a better person, and growing from situations, so my hat is off to him—I support him, I hope he gets back on the field and does his thing, cause he is the best at it.”
Me me me me me. Jesus Christ. This guy’s head is so far up his own rectum that he doesn’t even realize what a self-involved moron he sounds like. He needs to be locked away in a closet until he gets the heck over himself. True.
Rapper Lil’ Bow Wow was out and about on New Year’s Eve, tarnishing his sterling reputation by tweeting about driving drunk in his Lamborghini, although personally I think he did the most damage by admitting that he was spending time with Chris Brown.
* Im fucked up!!! = I am drunk.
* Y i drive the lambo = I am driving my lamborghini now. I should not be.
* Chris might have to drive after next spot = As in, I’m driving it right now, while tweeting, and I’m so trashed I think I’ll ask Chris Brown to drive next, because after beating up Rihanna he had to go sober. But first: another party!
Bow Wow later deleted the tweet.
I have to tell you, the older I get, the more passe drunk driving is. When we were younger, it was all like, “Yeah, I’m cool to drive, it’s no biggie, I’ll be fine.” Now that we’re all more aware of our mortality (and/or been hit with a DUI), driving drunk is far less common. Last night, everyone at the party either took a cab or had a designated driver. (I was the designated driver for my friends — try it sometime, they love you forever!) Drunk driving: So not hot right now.
“I didn’t get a call from them or anything. I felt embarrassed, but at the same time I felt stabbed in the back. Ok, Oprah you have so much power and people really listen to what you say. You don’t know anything that went down and you jump to conclusions and start brining people on the set that have no similarities to me other than a domestic dispute. And then compare them to me when she’s around me and knows me. She could have called me and been like, “Chris, let me get you on my show and I’m going to do this kind of segment.”
–Chris Brown steps to Oprah in VIBE Magazine for talking smack about him on her show and not inviting him to speak for himself.
Oh, Chris. You’re going after Oprah? You got dem kinda ballz now?
The preview for Chris Brown’s “Graffiti” came out today and man! Chris Brown has learned sooooooo much, you guys. It’s ridiculous what beating your famous girlfriend in a car in Hancock Park and then having to do like, forty hours of community service will do for a guy. He’s been “in the game” since he was 15 and then he was smacking around his girlfriend for a little bit and then he really figured out his life and now he’s back! He’s back with this faux-artsy music video with a documentary style intro.
Watch the video because it’s funny, but if you want to hear some much better new music, check out Timbaland’s new track that I can’t stop playing or even this Rihanna b-side.
The folks over at Good Morning America finally came to their senses and have scrapped Chris Brown’s scheduled performance. Over the weekend, Zelda Lily writer Sarah Spangenberg reported that the morning show had cancelled Adam Lambert’s appearance in response to his controversial American Music Awards performance. To fill the spot, GMA scheduled Chris Brown.
Now, they have given in to the public pressure and reversedthat decision. When will GMA learn what every Evil Beet writer has known forever? Have a stance and stick with it; it’s impossible to make everyone happy. In an act of compromise, Brown will appear on 20/20, minus the music and he won’t be allowed to plug his album. Robin Roberts and Chris filmed the in-depth interview over the weekend; it will air December 11th.
I’m not a fan of Chris Brown; I don’t think he’s expressed authentic remorse. Everything that comes out of his mouth sounds teleprompter-read or, at best, memorized from a script. So, for me, it’s more about action than words. If he wants to start regaining public favor, he can start by leaving that bow tie he wore on Larry King at home. That’s real progress in my world.
So, I know you all had pretty strong opinions on the whole Lambert vs Brown debate. Now that Brown has been moved to 20/20 without the performance aspect – he’ll probably get even more exposure than he would have in the morning — did ABC do the right thing?
