Chris Brown Fires Back at Miranda Lambert over Criticism
Another day, another Chris Brown Twitter drama. Country singer Miranda Lambert lambasted Brown and the Grammys for allowing him to perform in light of his assault on Rihanna in 2009. She continued her verbal and PR assault on Brown at one of her concerts. While Brown was relatively quiet in regards to her specific comments, he spoke out the best way he knows how yesterday: his oft-controversial Twitter account.
At a concert on Thursday (Feb. 16) at the University of Massachusetts, Lambert was about to launch into her song ‘Gunpowder and Lead,’ about a woman who kills her abusive husband. Before she began the tune, per E! Online, she spotted a sign in the audience that read ‘Take Notes Chris Brown.’ Lambert held the poster up, and, in what can arguably be considered an antagonistic move, instructed her crowd to take photos and tweet them.
And tweet them they did. Her photo above went viral quickly, and word eventually got to Breezy, who, as expected, didn’t take it well. “Using my name to get publicity? I love it! Perform your heart out!” he tweeted on Saturday (Feb. 18). He immediately followed it with, “Go buy @miranda_lambert album! So motivational and ‘PERFECT’!”
Lambert isn’t the only one who can’t forgive Brown for the ill-fated 2009 pre-Grammy incident. Music editors and fans alike went nuts when it was announced that Brown would feature on Rihanna’s ‘Birthday Cake’ remix. Brown responded to that backlash, as usual, on Twitter as well, writing, “Let them be mad!!!! We make music. Don’t like it, don’t listen! Turn up the music remix is coming soon too! Guess who’s on it?”
While we agree that Lambert may be capitalizing on Brown’s notoriety, we do wish he’d learn to let things go. Perhaps if he had a little more self-control and self-censorship, the world would forgive him as easily as Rihanna did.
