WHEN CHRIS BROWN MADE IT ALL ABOUT HIMSELF!
The BET Awards aired last night and the one story that everyone is talking about is predictably Chris Brown. The headline however, isn’t about Chris Browns fairly decent job at performing The King of Pops iconic choreography, but rather the bizarre(staged) breakdown the artist had on stage last night.
Chris Brown could have left the BET Awards last night with most people congratulating him on a job well done performing Michael Jackson’s choreography. I and many others were going to grant him that, and, say job well done kid. Instead Chris Brown chose to make his “tribute” to Michael Jackson all about Chris Brown. Part of being a professional means the ability to remain professional. Chris Brown showed last night that he isn’t up to that task. He made it through the dance steps but when it came time to sing “Man in the Mirror” the tarnished singer couldn’t muster a single note because he was crying and carrying on all over the stage.
Instead of everyone talking about how great a job Chris Brown did paying tribute to Michael Jackson, now everyone is talking about “Did you see Chris Brown break down last night.” What was supposed to be a tribute to the late Pop Icon has been reduced to Chris Brown and his crocodile tears.
Many people will buy into the act Chris Brown put on last night but it left a sour taste in my mouth. Jermaine Jackson stated that finally someone was going to fitting pay tribute to Michael Jackson.
That didn’t happen last night.
