This morning, I awoke to find all the urban blogs raving about convicted woman beater, Chris Brown's Michael Jackson tribute last night. Black folk are an oddly forgiving bunch when it comes to our criminals.

A grown man can urinate on a 13-year-old girl -- or use a young woman's face as a punching bag. But if he can sing or dance, he's redeemed in our eyes! It's a good thing black folks don't control the criminal justice system or our celebrities would never be charged with any crimes!

Chris Brown's performance was at once the most horrendous tribute I have ever seen on live television! Did he even practice his routine at all? He came out lip syncing to Michael Jackson's vocals. Didn't he have the time to re-record the lyrics?

And although Brown's choreography was noteworthy, the fact is, any Michael Jackson impersonator from the youngest to the oldest would have put Brown's dance routine to shame last night. I was not impressed.

Then, in what can only be described as one of the most shameless, calculated publicity stunts ever in BET's history, Brown begins to perform Jackson's classic, "Man in the Mirror," only to break down in tears as if on cue!

Only the #teambreezy d*ckriders fell for his crocodile tears. Though, to be honest, I've never seen a man that despondent over the loss of his career and livelihood (that's what he was really crying about). His Oscar winning performance begs the question: why didn't he do this last year? Maybe he canceled last year's MJ tribute because he couldn't cry on cue?


As someone pointed out this morning on Twitter: did Breezy cry for Rihanna?

The tweets about Brown's PR stunt from last night were equally as laughable. Everyone on my timeline was unified in their belief that CB's horrid performance was his redemption song.



The reality is that white folks have decided that Chris Brown's career is dead and buried -- and they are not as forgiving as the kool-aid drinkers on Twitter.

But one tweet stood out from the rest of the kool-aid soaked kudos. The only one that gave a true, unbiased, less than 140-character review of Brown's pathetic performance:

Oh, and this one too!

    I'm not a CB fan but I gotta give props where it's due...he danced his ass off...And the crying on cue....Great PR move.

  • http://organizekaos.blogspot.com JJSPLAYHOUSE

    I believe the tears were for his dying career though, he missed being on stage and ALLLLLLLLL that money!

  • Nupe4Life

    Chris Brown did that!!!!! That dude came with it and was genuine! You can't fake that LUMP in your Throat ... he was probably thinking his career was over ... like T.I. "He's Back" ... TEAM CB!

  • TSRBenz

    mj had his time in court for child molestation and he was still loved but i guess you gotta sell multi million albums to get that kind of love

  • lawgirl

    Glad he did not perform BEAT IT or they would have to clear all the women out the room. Although I forgive Chris Brown I think that crying was staged for pity. I would like the Chris lover to congratulate him but not diss Rihanna. That is so elementary.

  • http://lovingme782.wordpress.com Ms. Everything

    Wow.... smh. I will say that every mainstream media outlet I've read has covered Chris's performance favorably. Even TMZ was nice for once :coffee:

    :rofl: I knew you would be the one to still have something negative to say. Whether the crying was on cue or not, the tribute he did was just and I am glad he was able to do it.

    #Teambreezy :cheer1: and I'm not d*ckriding at all ..

  • nevesnanna

    I don't condone domestic violence, as I was involved in an abusive marriage.... However, I do believe in forgiveness and moving on. No one said we had to FORGET what happened (and none of us really know what REALLY HAPPENED), but forgiveness is an essential part of life.

    I honestly feel that his emotional BREAK THRU was real. God will meet you anywhere at anytime, and I truly think that God humbled Chris because sometimes many people who are where he was are quick to thank "their Lord and Savior" in their acceptance speeches, but don't really walk that walk. HE will humble you and take you to the lowest of the low and until you recognize that you have hit ROCK BOTTOM, the real YOU won't be revealed.

    I think that last night was a combination of a lot of things that we probably don't even know - or can't even imagine - that he has gone thru - even before the incident last year. He has been carrying a lot of baggage and I applaud him being MAN enough to not just WALK off the stage like he probably wanted to...but to go through that for everybody to see.

    I'm not going to judge him.

  • FreeToSpeakUp

    I thought his performance was great. No one is EVER going to be able to impersonate MJ 100%. His tears seemed sincere. I think he was happy that BET gave him a CHANCE to redeem his career, not only performing BUT doing the MJ tribute alone. I don't coddone beating women but deep in my heart I've always felt like he was fighting for his life. I don't trust Rhianna. She seems to be a "spaghetti sauce" type chick.

  • jlojones2007

    GOOD JOB CHRIS OTHER THAN RHI RHI AND GOD HE NEEDS NO FORGIVENESS FROM ANYBODY ELSE #ANDTHATISALL

    Get over it...he did great, dancing atleast.

    The river of tears were a lot but he was obviously moved probably because he was doing a tribute to his idol and because somebody is FINALLY giving him a shot again...#shutitdown

  • Nupe4Life

    I finally read Sandra's BS ... you actually think someone else can out dance Chris Brown and immitate Michael Jackson - Sandra KILL YO SELF!! Go play Hop Scotch in the middle of I-285 just before it bogs down for rush hour traffic! if Chris slapped the taste out yo mouth he would be justified ... don't ban me; I'm just being honest! ;)

  • Kcalvin2002

    Sandra just like Chris is glad that people can still be forgiving (unlike you apparently), I am JUST AS glad that you don't have the right to place eternal judgement on others, because under your authority, everyone would surely be hell bound...I mean, at the end of the day NO ONE will EVER be MJ and we have ALL seen what Chris can do, so we know his performance level...I dont think this performance was about HIM, it was about giving honor to the King of R&B while finally at BET, the same station that DIDN't allow him to perform last year...Sandra for you to be so intelligent, your biased and judgemental attitude, makes you look like a fool....Learn to forgive Sandra....Maybe all this time I have just incorrectly assumed that you were a Christian...And if that is the case, then I understand your judgemental attitude...smh...

  • CivilEngineer

    And why does he need forgiveness from us??

    Sandy, did he hit you? Rihanna moved on, I think it's time you do the same...#beatingadeadhorse

    Morning Folks!

  • commonswifey

    Chris did a great job.The way you go hard at him, people would think he beat you up

  • Cinderella

    Good Morning everybody. I knew Sandra would let Chris have it this morning. I think he did a great job and was sincerely emotional. I could go on about Sandra's beloved T.I. and Jeezy who are admitted former drug dealers and how they played apart in further destroying the Black community but intelligent people already know that.

  • mzvirgo78

    I thought Chris Brown did a great job with his tribute. I don't condone DV but I also believe in there are two sides to every story and Rhianna aint no darn angel. At least he was able to admit his wrongdoings and accept resposibility for his actions UNLIKE the other shady party who decided to play the victim role in order to capitalize off of the situation.

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    I have to agree with Sandra. We will "forgive" people for dayum near anything so I don't see why Chris Brown should be any different. :shrugs:

    His performance was awwwwwwiiiiiiight. Nothing special to me.

    The show was better than last years.

    Trey Songz is terrible. I can never understand how anyone could be a fan of his.

  • bama_n_jersey

    ummm Sandra don't you still hype up TI, the one who did Fed time, on your blog? (Don't get me wrong I love TI) but umm a criminal is a criminal in my book.

    I think Chris did a good job and no matter if the tears were for Mike or for all that Chris has been through, give the kid a break.

    And as far as him doing the tribute this year, I think it was long overdue. I wish they would have let him do it last year.

  • gypsyeyes

    It's so easy to judge. I knew that this morning this would be the one blog to dog him out. I'm not going to say too much because I knew that I would be disappointed when I came here. I'm not a stan or a d*ckrider but I'm a human being and to err is human. It's not just black folks that are forgiving. We weren't the only one's that was disappointed in his actions.I'm not going to make this a black/white thing or a right/wrong thing. It's a human/compassionate thing.God bless him or anyone that has been in a domestic violence situation.Jesus does forgive.

    I like the choreography and the tribute in general, however I thought his crying was a product of glycerin and water, even Matt Lauer gave Chris Brown a side for his fake azz crying. But I will commend his PR team for finally earning their keep for this

  • coaretained

    He tore it up. I have to agree with most ( or few ) when I say those tears were caused by FINALLY getting to do what he missed out on last year due to a mistake- and thats honor his idol the way only HE could.

    Forgiveness isn't a "black" thing its a human thing.

    Chris Brown and Pattie was the best thing of the night to me. Shame that somebody grandmother sounded better than everyone.

    I want Chris to quit apologizing - ____ how the haters feel! Almost everyone that reads this blog fits in one or both categories: you either done had your Ace kicked or you done kicked someone's ace. Hell sometimes people need they Ace kicked. I sit here sometimes and look at the ish people do, say, and wear and I think "they need they ace kicked". You don't know why that man whooped her; she seems to have moved on - so it's time for everyone else to move on. SANDRA ROSE don't give a D___ about Black People!

    All of us fall short of the Glory, so chill out. I totally agree about the comment about God humbling him. That is what happened. He made a mistake and he has paid for it now let the dayum boy be. And of course no one will ever be able to duplicate the greatness that is MJ but he did a great impression. Can we see pics from the show and red carpet arrivals. Enough of the Breezy bashing. Please and thank you!

  • lawgirl

    While you all talking about real tears. Give him a few days to bask in this and he will be back on twitter dissing radio, bloggers etc.

    #TEAMCBREEZYALLDAYLONG...GETATME!!!

    Chris did his thang, and no amount of hate is going to change that fact. There is no reason in the world for this man's life to be over because he made a mistake. If all of our lives ended because we made mistakes, the world wouldn't have a soul on it. If God can forgive him, who are those judging him not to??? Wow...and :cosign: w/ Civil, he didn't hit my azz so why would I need to forgive him?

    This question is for anyone...name something you've done that you needed serious forgiveness for, and tell me that you deserved to be blackballed, banished, disowned, and shamed for the duration because of it? Don't worry I'll wait. Don't nobody want to live like that for the rest of their lives. Get over it. Damn.

  • http://youravon.com/sherichambers texaspaine

    I think he did a good job. I think the people who is still wishing for his caree to be over should look in the mirror. IF it was you, you would want a second chance. charma is a mugg. what you wish for others will come back to you ten fold. I pray for the people that are still judging him. He will have to answer when the Lord someday but he owe us nothing. Only the Lord himself can judge. :pray:

    Sandra you get the :kona:

  • cheeks8683

    What if we all continued in our lives not forgiving people that have done wrong by us? What would we say before God on judgement day? "Man, those people on Earth really made me mad and I just could not find it in my heart to forgive them". Do u think God would just nod his head and let us enter? He said he was sorry millions of times, he said I'm sorry again last night, God has forgiven him who are we not to? Pray for folks instead of putting them down and move around...

  • meanNsurly

    Hey Yall!!! I watched his performance and previously I was anti team breezy but his tribute to MJ was very moving. Everyone knows he is a MJ fan and because of the Rhianna chit that went down he was unable to perform last yr. It was ironic that he broke down crying while singing "Man In the Mirror".....those were real tears NOTHING fake about it. He was crying because of MJ and also all the chit he has been through in the past 2 yrs. This is the first time I believe that CB is honestly sorry and is begging for the publics forgiveness.

  • lakercrazy

    i for once looooved the chris brown performance the dancing was good love the light up dancers....wen it comes to chris i have been one to stop listning to his music and even stop buy his cd after what happen with rhi rhi because of my aunts passing from domestic violance i feel like any man who puts hands on a woman is a sorry excuse for a d*ck but why would any of us have to forgive him? rhi rhi did she has moved on and he is trying to do the same but most of wont let him we are not god and we need to let the forgiveness to him and him only GOD...i think he got chocked up because of the song he tryed to perform MAN IN THE MIRROr come on that broke him down wich is understandable. on that note #teamchrisbrown :cheer:

    Anyway, I loved the performance. I think those were tears for MJ and just the emotional feeling of being on stage doing what he loves to do. I'm sure he thought he wouldn't get a chance to perform at an awards show so that alone probably had him choked up. I'm sick of all the negative. Rihanna got over it so everyone else needs to do the same.

And while we dont see him hitting on tiny I know mental and emotional abuse when I see it. That is the worst abuse of all IMo and those bruises take longer to heal. Chris Brown made a horrible mistake...and He and He alone has to answer for it on Judgement Day. Sandra I hope you dont believe in going to Heaven because you cant get there with a hardened heart. You cant ask God to forgive you when you wont forgive others...

    I don't think his tears were as much about MJ as they were about him just letting all the drama just catch up with him. He was glad to be on stage and glad to be given another chance.

    I think it was wonderful. I think it is what he needed to do it was meant for him to do. MJ was riduculed for his "actions" and people tried to break him. He was everything under the sun child molestor, alien, said MJ was sleeping with his monkey in a tank of some sort. But when the man pasted on the world forgot about all of that and remembered the great man that he was,they remembered his career and how he broke records. Chris Brown did that performance as a tribute to his idol and they song touched him bc of what it meant for him. Big ups to him for being man enough to feel emotions!!!

    saysSandra just like Chris is glad that people can still be forgiving (unlike you apparently), I am JUST AS glad that you don’t have the right to place eternal judgement on others, because under your authority, everyone would surely be hell bound…I mean, at the end of the day NO ONE will EVER be MJ and we have ALL seen what Chris can do, so we know his performance level…I dont think this performance was about HIM, it was about giving honor to the King of R&B while finally at BET, the same station that DIDN’t allow him to perform last year…Sandra for you to be so intelligent, your biased and judgemental attitude, makes you look like a fool….Learn to forgive Sandra….Maybe all this time I have just incorrectly assumed that you were a Christian…And if that is the case, then I understand your judgemental attitude…smh…

    How is it that Kim Burrell came out and out-sang AKeys on her own set, while putting a gospel flair in it? And getting up on the piano while prego? :nono:

    Did anyone catch Luda when he pointed @ Swizz Beats while saying "better than yours"? Or was I just imagining things?

    I'm usually lurking, but today I knew Sandra would try to slay Chris Brown so I had to comment. Chris Brown did the best MJ tribute. Although, there wasn't much singing the dancing was great. I think that this experience has truly humbled him and he now back in business. Sandra, he still has fans didn't he win the fan award. You seem to think that Black people are too forgiving while you prove that Black people are more like crabs constantly trying to pull others down.

    Did you all see Prince's face when A keys got on that piano. He was looking like ' Swizz you better get her'

  • starr

    I expected nothing less from u this morning....

    I thought it was amazing. As far as the tears, people can say it what they want about....I don't know whats in his heart. I've said from jump Chris is immature. His entire behavior has shown that. That being said, its not for me to forgive him. I was over this story weeks after it came out. And most of us know had this not been rihanna, no one would care. That alone is sad.

    anyhoo..I always had mad luv for chris. Some people won't forgive, but hey, it is what it is

  • http://twitter.com/Queensj QueenSJ

    Sandra, I would have to disagree. I thought Chris did GREAT! The whining and crying shouldn't be a surprise given that he's been doing that for awhile now. But hopefully all of his fans will actually support and go buy the album. And don't give me anything about people blackballing him because there are waaaaaaaaaaay too many entertainers white AND BLACK who do ridiculous things and yet, they still sell, tour, perform etc. So there you have it.

  • lakercrazy

    we all have to remember that michael jackson was a PERFECTIONIST nobody will ever do justice to him he is and will always be the greatest permorer who ever lived so people doing a tribute to him by performing his songs will never fill his shoes all chris was trying to do is do the tribute he couldtn last year and the song man in the mirror spoke to him because of the situation he is in because some of us think we are GOD and he need our forgiveness!!! getthefluck out here letgo of it

  • maggie012205

    i actually think chris brown did a terrible job. the dancing was OFF. Michael Jackson was a perfectionist and some of the dance moves were off key and not in sync, something that Michael Jackson would have never accepted as ok to do. NO ONE could ever emulate Michael Jackson so everyone should stop trying.

You just put his name on your blog to get your hits up. The only thing contrived I've seen in the last 24 hours is your ill attmept to demean Chris for his MJ tribute in your post. Grow up Sandra! It's people like you that broke him down last night, but its everyone in that crowd that stood up, and everyone at home that watched and voted for him that will allow him to get back up and be greater than he was before. Get ready Ms. Rose, cause you are going to have a lot to talk about in the coming weeks. Chris Brown is not going anywhere!

  • http://lovingme782.wordpress.com Ms. Everything

    @Ms. normally I'm with you but that performance was far from average. CB is no MJ but he's the closest dance wise out of all these so called entertainers and gave the best tribute imo. Most of the others were poorly performed, put together horribly and done without even an ounce of the emotion and feeling that Chris put into his last night. BET knows good and well that they did him dirty last year by denying him the opportunity to give tribute last year and there was nothing fake or staged about those tears. Man in the mirror is already an emotional song add to that all Chris has been through publically the last couple years, the destruction of his career because of something he did as an immature child, the public bashing by his peers and the media, the nicknames, jokes, parading of St. Rihanna, plus the death of his idol and being such a pariah that he couldnt even say goodbye the way he wanted to and anyone with feelings and a heart wouldve broke down too. Ive felt from the beginning that eventually the public would soften up and let this young man have a second chance and hopefully that is whats finally happening

  • funkyfinger54

    Well, I just knew the HATE would be on and coming from your mouth Sandra!!! I'm just wondering when people will stop Hating on this dude and let him do what he does best and that's performing. None of us was in the car that night w/ him and Forehead. There are two sides to a story. I'm not saying what he did was right but @ the end of the day I'm down w/ talent. The fact that you didn't like his performance shows how much of a Hater you are Sandra. You riding for RiRi and she doesn't have any talent what's so ever. I don't know how she even got in the game. I believe Chris tears were real. Man in the Mirror is a deep song. Maybe you should try listening to the lyrics. MJ himself had been damned by so many off of lies. I seriously believe Chris was crying in the lost of his idol and finally having the chance to perform in his honor since he was banned last yr. I was the first to say he should have performed last yr because without him the show was pure wack and a disgrace to the King of Pop. I'm glad the Jackson Family gave Chris his time to shine. He did an outstanding job and I don't think anyone could have done better. He wasn't MJ but good enough being that his generation lacks Talent these days. I'm proud to say I'm a Chris Brown Fan. Only God can judge him not you Sandra! If there is ever a clinic for Haters I hope you sign up for treatment. SMH @ you and your silly hating comments. Breezy is Back!!!

    I totally forgot Sandra was perfect and never committed a sin. From the way she carries on about Chris Brown you would think she had a job judging folks with God himself. Every human makes mistakes and we all deserve a second chance. He has one man to answer to and his name isn’t Sandra or any of the other CB haters. Us “kool-aid drinkers” shouldn’t have to hold a grudge against people forever. He got his punishment and now it’s time to move on. The past is in the past. And as a #TEAMBREEZY “d*ckrider” I think Chris’s performance last night was great! The best MJ tribute yet! Better than the entire tribute show BET put on last year. And maybe they didn’t intend on him actually singing the songs. The tribute was supposed to be in the dancing. And If you thought his tears were fake, SO THE EFF WHAT?! All in all, I should’ve known nothing positive was going to come from Sandra’s blog but oh well, we all need someone to prove wrong.

  • MissJasmineShanae

    Still can't really tell if those tears are real or not and I really don't care . What I was waiting on was for Joe Jackson to come out and give his axx something to cry about for missing that whole . . Yall know Joe don't play all of that verse :coffee:

  • Little Big Moma

    I liked Chris Brown's performance. I think everyone should get a second chance, and SR seems to have mucho hate for Chris. If Chris has asked for forgivness then why can't he be forgiven? People have a lot of nerve!!! What he did was oh so wrong, but he deserves another chance.

  • http://www.twitter.com/diva2127 PDiva2127

  • forevermo

    I think CB did a great job. Yes in the past he made a mistake, but I believe he deserves a second chance. When I was young I made many mistake that do not exemplify who I am today. Should I too be judged for who I use to be? In my opinion its time to forgive and give him another shot. Lets see what he does and if he makes the same mistake twice then we can write him off. But I have a feeling Chris Brown will be alright. Great Performance Chris Brown!!

  • speakinmymind

    as the Donnie McClurkin song so beautifully asserts, ..."for a saint is just a sinner who fell down and got up..."

    we will all fall and get up many times throughout our lifetime. the beauty is in learning the lesson and living the change from that lesson going forward. i'm thankful the God I serve is a forgiving God and that Jesus died on the cross for all our sins, that we be forgiven time and time again.

    @cicil - Mo got Deneice Williams last night but she would've TORE HER UP if she still had her voice when she sang Silly of Me. Her voice use to be the truth.

    When you do a TRIBUTE to a person you're usually singing their songing and dancing their work no...or did that change?

  • Lady_L

    Sandra your dear beleoved Tiny even had something nice to say about CB in her tweet.. you gonna start hating her too now? @ tnevesnanna, sorry I had to re-post your comment, It was well said. I was also a victim of DV in a relationship. I asked God for forgivness for myself, and my abuser. People don't understand that God wants to you to forgive, it is not healthy living with hate in your heart. My abuser also forgave hiself and asked me for forgivness , and I did forgive him. I will never forget, but that burden of HATE is off my heart, and I have been living a blessed life ever since.
    tnevesnanna says:

    I don’t condone domestic violence, as I was involved in an abusive marriage…. However, I do believe in forgiveness and moving on. No one said we had to FORGET what happened (and none of us really know what REALLY HAPPENED), but forgiveness is an essential part of life.

    I honestly feel that his emotional BREAK THRU was real. God will meet you anywhere at anytime, and I truly think that God humbled Chris because sometimes many people who are where he was are quick to thank “their Lord and Savior” in their acceptance speeches, but don’t really walk that walk. HE will humble you and take you to the lowest of the low and until you recognize that you have hit ROCK BOTTOM, the real YOU won’t be revealed.

    I think that last night was a combination of a lot of things that we probably don’t even know – or can’t even imagine – that he has gone thru – even before the incident last year. He has been carrying a lot of baggage and I applaud him being MAN enough to not just WALK off the stage like he probably wanted to…but to go through that for everybody to see.

    I’m not going to judge him.

    weet. SO are you going to start hating her now too?

    His dancing was on point. I feel bad for him and Rihanna but I can understand if Ri and her fans or friends aren't as forgiving because she is the victim.

    This is what kills me about man. Man is quick to throw up your past in your face. I am not even a Chris Brown fan but his performance was great and sincere and I am sure MJ would have been proud. Rihanna and Chris have moved on with their lives so we need to move on with ours. We're the only ones still stuck on the incident. That's why I love the fact I serve a forgiving and merciful God.

    No one can fill MJ's shoes but what Chris was doing was simply paying tribute to one of his idols.

    That boy was crying, before he even started trying to sing.....I don't know, call me crazy, but I think he got caught up in the moment, and if you think about the words of "Man in the Mirror", that pretty much sums up his situation...a young man paying for his mistakes, realizing it's time to make a change...he's in the middle of his lesson in life.

    I think he's finally seeing what it takes to become a real man in this world....let him learn his lesson from his mistake.

  • Lady Progressive

    Black people: Question: If we are saying that Chris Brown deserves to be forgiven and that everyone makes mistakes, why do we find it so hard to forgive Black women who make mistakes? Let's think about it: Karrine Steffans who did nothing more than have a bunch of sex will forever be known for that. Robyn Givens (sp?) who did nothing more than report Mike Tyson's arse whippings is forever scorned by the Black community and considered a gold digger. Yet, we are SO willing to forgive drug dealers who destroy our neighborhoods, rapist (mystical, Mike Tyson, Tupac..etc), Women beaters, Child molesters/pedophiles (R. Kelly...) but we have No record on forgiving Black women who made mistakes or even having their backs-Rihanna had virtually NO support on Black blogs for what happened to her.

    I am all for forgiveness but I am much more for consistency. It appears to me that when Black people say: "no one is perfect" or "we all make mistakes" or "who are we to judge" we really mean, "I don't REALLY have a problem with what this person did so I can forgive them". My issue isn't Chris Brown, my issue is there appears to be a dangerous culture within our community that doesn't really have an issue with crimes committed against Black women by Black men. That is my real issue....carry on :waiting:

    I havent read the posts above but heres my two cents...I'm a fan of chris brown's talent even though I dont agree with him hitting a female, just the same as I am a fan of some rappers but dont agree with their drug selling, gun toting pasts. I do believe that CB's tears were genuine...i think it was a combination of things...it was probably a childhood dream of his to be able to perform a tribute to the artist that he idolizes...also Man in the Mirror is a pretty deep song. Given the past year or so CB has had alot of time to examine who he is or trying to become as a man

    i ride for breezy, but the choked up bs at the end, i didn't even finish watching it. you had a whole year to cry, gtfoh. last night was the night to BRING IT, the ghetto world was your stage and you shed tears on it? HATED IT.

    I didn't like all the lip synch ness either. you gone perform, perform. the only segment that i could say aloud 'was hot,' was the glow in the dark segment of the dancers, of which breezy wasn't a part of. he was backstage getting ready for his next piece.

    THUMBS DOWN.

    Sandra.... I am sure if Chris Browns heart is true God forgives him. He showed a lot of courage. I mean, I didnt believe that was faked at all and yes thats my opinion. However, God forgives and Chris has not committed any other vile acts and crimes and he looks to be on a straight and narrow path.

  • sexywitwhatigot

    chris brown acting????? yeah right! as a ryan cameron said this morning, that could NOT have been fake. have you seen that dude act in movies??? he's NOT a good actor. i am soooo happy some people aren't God 'cause clearly, some people are very judgmental. i agree with what other people have said, i think it was a mixture of doing the tribute and also seeing people accept him, as an artist, again. don't worry about the haters CB. as my grandma say, let God use you hunny!

  • Mrs. Wimberly

    I liked it! I am not the biggest Chris Brown fan, but dang.....how long are we going to hold this over his head??? She's moved on, now it's time for us to move on from what happened!

  • Ashley

    Black people: Question: If we are saying that Chris Brown deserves to be forgiven and that everyone makes mistakes, why do we find it so hard to forgive Black women who make mistakes?
    -----------------------
    You are painting "black" people with a broad brush. We are all not the same.

    1. What is there to fogive K.Stevens for? She didnt hurt me. She hurt herself. For people that dont particularly care for her may feel that way because she has glorified her life and her experiences. I read her book and she just didnt come across as 'regretting' her decisions. & Rihanna did have a lot of support. If that was the truth then how come we hear her music on the radio and not Chris? How come we can find her CD in the stores but not Chris's? R.Kelly....I give you that one. I dont know HOW this man was invincible. What a creep he was! But, I am so tired of people claiming that ALL or majority of black people support the wrong doers. Yes, there are plenty that look the other way but I refuse to be judged. However, I dont think we need to cruicify an artist for years to come. Its like beating a dead horse. White people are notorious for supporting other white artists after they have become coke addicts, alcoholics, wife beaters, etc. But, dont paint it as a "race" issue.

    The degree of love I have for MJ and the degree of disgust I have for CB still don't make me jaded about what I saw in that video. It was moving. And he did a way better job than Usher or Ne-Yo or whatever ever did trying to impersonate MJ. Props.

  • aqtpie

    I am not a hater nor a fan of Chris Brown but I think he did a very good job!!!

  • vetta

    His performance was okay, it didn't excite me as much though. I do believe his tears were real, if not he did a great job of faking it because I shed a tear watching him.

  • http://lovingme782.wordpress.com Ms. Everything

    @Ms. I can respect your opinion and I will admit I've seen better dance moves from him but overall it was the best tribute so far that I've seen and deserves to be commended as such imo.

    @Nupe4Life, that was pure ignorance. You can state your point without calling names and being disrespectful (see above)

    @Lady Progressive, to answer your questions:

    1. Karrine brought her issues on herself. She wrote a book "putting on blast" the industry men she slept with, telling tales of her sexing for rent, furniture, clothes and drugs and has yet to show an honest change. When she tried to write a book on marriage (or whatever it was) she was caught in lie after lie regarding her so called marriage, the # of children she has and would snap on her interviewers. To make it short, Karrine's problems have been brought on by Karrine and she has yet to show any remorse, any change, any indication that she realizes she may have made some mistakes and honestly wants to change. If she did so, I'd welcome her with open arms but she hasn't.

    2. Robyn Givens, I never understood the Robyn Givens hate, maybe I was too young back then however I have alot of respect for the fact that she has kept her family out the limelight, works when she wants to or needs to, and is not only beautiful but highly intelligent and works hard for domestic violence victims. I was actually appalled when Oprah refused to have Chris on her show, made a public statement condeming him but then was able to sit and laugh with Mike Tyson regarding Robyn's abuse.

    3. I neither condone nor support any entertainer who brags about drug dealing, drug using, gun toting, murder and abuse or disrespect towards women in their music be they male or female, black or white. I take major issue with the amount of repeat criminals who are glorified in the media as role models, the drug abusers being labeled as eccentric when they're clearly loaded and the pedophiles/sex offenders and other sick, perverted felons running rampant in the entertainment industry. I support Chris and believe he deserves a second chance because a). From day 1, I've said something isn't right with the media's version of what went down that night. He was tried in the media before he was ever tried in the courts and with the release of those pictures he would have never found an impartial jury to properly try that case in la county. I believe he pled guilty in an ill-advised effort to make it all quiet down and go away and so that he could hold on to some of his dignity. b). He was 19 and a first time offender on an emotionally charged offense. It wasn't pre meditated, he didn't have priors or a history of violence towards anyone male or female and all who knew him stated that he was a good kid who witnessed domestic violence as a child and made a terrible mistake. Everyone makes mistakes some worse than others but all deserve a second chance and the opportunity to make things right. c). His personal life and his career should be kept seperate. Unless we as the public and the consumers are going to hold each and every entertainer accountable by witholding record sales/consumer support for every offense they make then we shouldn't do so to him. Instead of holding other entertainers accountable for their blatent disrespect and crimes against our communities and women, too many would rather hate Chris for his ONE crime while still supporting the repeat offenders just cause they are disrespecting them personally, whatever the hell that means. Too many artists, especially rappers and white celebs are going to jail on gun charges, domestic violence, drugs, MURDER, dui's and sex charges and getting slaps on the wrists, plea deals, or bogus acquitals and going platinum while behind bars, having fans walking around with Free Weezy (for example) shirts, getting reality shows (TI?) and these are repeat offenders who glorify the very things they are convicted for in their music, full grown adults with children and families who sat down and said "hmmm I'm gonna commit a crime today" yet this young man's entire career is dismantled, he's ridiculed in the streets, parodied on tv shows, ripped apart on blogs, told to kill himself in the comments for ONE crime that he committed in the heat of the moment??? I'm not saying he didn't deserve to be held accountable, but he's doing his sentence according to the law, he's paid his fines, donated his time with and without the court order, apologized countless times and somehow that still isn't enough for Sandra and the others who want him strung up in a tree and hung. While Sandra is saying us blacks are so forgiving what about whites? What about Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, Chris Klein, Lindsey Lohan, Britney Spears hell Gary Coleman's fugly wife, Russell Crowe and so many others who are REPEAT offenders yet as long as their crimes aren't against jews or gays they can continue to work, make money and function in society until they eventually overdose or do something so horrible that the public can no longer avert its eyes. This young man has had to take on way to much in the last two years and now he does something great but breaks down in tears over all that's happened in two years and even that's not enough. Some of you won't be happy until he actually kills himself then you'll all be crying saying we lost a great talent and it was too soon, then his records will start selling again, there will be tributes to him and everyone will forget that they ever tormented him, talked about him, wished death upon him and drove him to whatever caused his actual demise.... oh wait, that's what happened to Michael. Oops my bad,smdh Now I've gone off on one of my tangents again so to sum this all up @Lady Progressive, this isn't about the need to finally hold someone accountable for crimes against black women. We as black women need to stop being so accepting of the disrespect and bullshit we get fed through the media and stand up for ourselves instead of piling all our anger on the back of one 21 year old man. When black women stop shaking our asses in the clubs to songs calling us bitches and hoes in the lyrics, talking about effing and leaving us, by men who don't take care of their kids, abuse their wives, gfriends, baby mamas emotionally (TI) and physically yet get away with it, stop buying music by the same criminals who've clogged our communites with drugs, guns and violence indirectly or directly in some cases killing our fathers, brothers and sons while helping to incarcerate others so that we don't have enough strong black men fighting against the bullshit society is feeding our kids. When we stop agreeing to appear half ass naked in videos, movies and magazines talking about it's just so we can get through college knowing good and damn well a job at Old Navy will put your ass through college too with your clothes on. When we stop being active participants in the disrespect, degredation, abuse, and dumbing down of ourselves, then maybe black men and other people will stand up for us, maybe then we will get the respect we deserve and we can start to hold people accountable for their crimes against black women and you won't have to ask the questions that you did. You have to demand more in order to get more and unfortunately there simply aren't enough of us willing to take a stand and demand more. Destroying this young man's life and career isn't going to get us to that point any faster though and those of us willing to support giving him another chance to redeem himself are not kool aid drinkers, weak minded or supportive of abuse and crime we just happen to see the bigger picture here and realize that we are not God nor do we have the right to make him pay with his career for every punch, hit, kick, scratch, beating, or other abuse that women as a whole have received.

    Its sad to see that some people can't give Chris his props. He EARNED praise for his PERFORMANCE. Just because people enjoyed his performance does not mean that we are ignorant or anything else negative. I resent that as I am one of the many people that enjoyed it. And one more thing, how DUMB do you have to be not to realize that Chris was lip synching to HIS OWN RECORDED VOICE when he was singing the way you make me feel. DUHHHHHHHH. It is really exhausting that there are such double standards regarding this. I was proud of his performance and I know that Michael would have been too.

  • Chgoprime

    I have never been a fan of CB's b/c he had over saturated the market, him and his ex. Really hated him after hittin Rhi Rhi whom I didn't care for either. But ever since What appeared to me like black listing from the industry I became interested in him, then with this new album which has nothing but bangers, I dun fell in love w/this lil sexy thing. He is a great performer and artist. I get it now. I agree w/Binki Mike loved CB and CB has always made it clear that Mike was his inspiration. He is far better than Trey Songz imo so I'm glad he's back. And yes he deserves forgiveness as we all do. If Rhianna can forgive him so shouldn't we give him a 2nd chance?

  • Lady Progressive

    @Ashley
    Stop pretending that there is NOT a culture within the Black community that allows Black men to continuously commit crimes against Black women without consequences. Second, I did not read Karrine Steffans book because I am educated and far too intelligent for that sort of garbage, but the point I was making was there was and still is a large degree of hatred for a woman who in no way committed a crime, yet Black men who commit crimes against Black women are easily forgiven and treated like victims. Lastly, the "broad brush" argument is useless. Most things in life are painted with broad brushes, that doesn't invalidate the argument being made.

    @MsEverything

    Is it possible for Black people to examine ourselves without pointing to some White person? Why did you find it necessary to name White people when I was talking about US? Please. I am going to be honest, I did not read the thesis you wrote but I scrolled through enough to get your point. I for once would like to see us as Black people examine OURSELVES and our culture and be honest about it without pointing to White people. No matter how hard we try to fight and ignore it, our culture has VERY LITTLE STANDARDS on how we expect our men to act and therefore when they commit crimes against their women, we somehow convince ourselves that what they did wasn't wrong, or they are victims or they deserve immediate redemption and a pity party.

  • taymorel

    As a Chris Brown stan I loved the performance. And actually cried with him. His fans have stood beside him this year and done what we can to support him. I can understand the anger toward Chris's actions, but are people going to hold a horrific night against him for the rest of his life. We forgive 30 and 40 year old men (TI, Jayz) for the things they do and yet we cannot forgive a 21 year old (19 when incident occurred.

    I am sorry that Chris responded in a disrespecful manner to SandraRose, but sometimes you are pushed to that point. Even Perez Hilton today said he felt Chris was sincere and it was time to move on from the incident. Listening to Man in the Mirror last night reminded me that none of us are perfect and all striving to be better people. I believe in Chris and know that he will the man that his fans believe. TeamBreezy all day!!

  • http://lovingme782.wordpress.com Ms. Everything

    @Lady Progressive, the funny thing is for as educated as you're trying to come off you made one of the biggest mistakes a person trying to make a point can make, 1. Your main "victim" in your original comment Karrine Stephens, you just admitted you know nothing about and didn't read her book and 2. The questions you just asked about my "thesis" had you took the time to read it instead of skimming over you would have the answer to the question you just asked. One of my biggest pet peeves is for people with a brand new degree (if that) but no actual life experience run in ready to fight for a cause that they know nothing about and the people who do that are usually the ones who end up making the entire cause look bad because of their lack of real knowledge. But to answer your question (again), BLACK WOMEN are our own worst enemy. The main people fighting for the pedophiles, child abusers, and women beaters are WOMEN!! WE are the main ones buying the disrespectful albums these rappers are putting out. WE are the main ones shaking it up in the club like a damn fool while niggas are calling us out our name. WE are the ones dressing like strippers to go to the grocery store. WE are the ones who have let our standards down so low that marriage isn't a requirement and neither is a real job with benefits. WE are the ones signing up for these ignorant videos that are only a hop and a skip away from pornos. WE are the ones up on blogs talking about how we'll screw this celeb or the next all in the comment section. WE are the ones who start aging and decide to get damn near bucket naked on the cover of these low budget mens magazines. WE are the ones who continue accepting mediocre hoodrat or stereotypical roles in low budget movies instead of deciding to pool our money, buy our own studios, finance our own scripts and permenently change the acting game once and for all. WE are the ones idolizing women like Oprah while ignoring the older wiser women in our own communities and dismissing them as old fashioned. Need I go on? Black women are the reason for the predicament that black women are currently in. Does this apply to every black woman of course not but unfortunately too many of us would rather do like you and use the comment section of a blog as a place to wrongfully fight for a cause that is too broad and too problematic to be solved this way, use a 21 year old black man, who has been essentially lynched by the very industry he grew up in and who has generally been nothing but respectful towards black women with the exception of one time, as a scapegoat for the shortcomings and problems of too many black men and all the problems within the industry and our society, or pick fights with others who don't see things the way you do because you are so "educated" and would rather call yourself progressive while holding your nose in the air then get down in the trenches and start to actually work towards changing the mindsets that lead to the problems you're preaching against. The majority of the people supporting R. Kelly's perverted behind were women. Who do you think is buying TI,Jeezy, and Luda's albums? Women! Who do you think made Soulja Boy's sorry disrespectful butt popular? Women!! We're the one's sitting at home waiting for the "men" to be released, it's usually mother's, sisters and girlfriends standing up for the rapists, murderers and assaulters. Until we change the mindset that we are supposed to stand by our men no matter what then we will continue to be in the same situation. I'm not saying it's right but I am saying don't paint all black women as victims and the men as the villains because if we demanded more respect, accountability, civility and just more altogether from our men then we would get more in return. If we stopped chasing and desiring the so called "hard" men and stopped pumping them up in the media, interviews and what not as desirable while indirectly putting down the hardworking, educated MEN then maybe just maybe our black men would strive to do more. If we expected great things out of them then maybe we would get great things from them and we wouldn't have this problem. Too many women are walking around with the "woe is me, I'm a helpless victim" mindset and that's what is causing these problems. We need to stop being victims and stop assuming that every women who's been exploited, been in a fight (not senseless abuse but two person combat with a male or female) or is walking around blind to her surroundings is a victim, that mindset creates weak individuals. Do some more research on whatever point it is you're trying to make and come back to me when you can make a valid point using examples that you actually know something about or have at least taken the time to read about

  • Canrius2010

    Chris did an awesome job. People really are so judgemental. He who is without sin cast the first stone. Black people don't stand up for each other enough in the way other cultures do. Chris is young and has a lot of growing up to do. I hope some people are not that naive to think he is the only entertainer out there who beat his girlfriend/wife. He just got caught.

    -----------------------
    The Black community has its issues. But the point that I have made is everything is not to be made into a race issue when every group does it. People look the other way all the time.

    You cant pass judgement on black people then if you dont have the facts. I am getting my Masters now. Ive graduated at the top of my class from Texas Tech University. I am no less educated than you are but I will read anything from Journal articles to something as trashy as her book. Dont get me wrong it was garbage, however you cannot pass judgement on people that dont "care" for her when obviously do not know why! I gave her a fair shot and she proved to be an unforgiving individual (by reading her book)

    Again, you need to change your "overgeneralizations" against the black community. I didnt disagree with you about violence being over looked, I disagreed with the fact that you painted it as a "black problem".

    I worked with abused women and women of all backgrounds are felt to feel inferior because of their family, spouses, etc. It is not just a black probelm
    -------
    Lastly, the “broad brush” argument is useless. Most things in life are painted with broad brushes, that doesn’t invalidate the argument being made.

    Its useless because you cant refute it. Just because "most" things are painted witha broad brush makes it okay? That was a POOR defense of your statement.

    Seriously. I agree to disagree with you. It doesnt matter what either of I say about it unless you are doing something to change the discrepencies and the wrong in our society.

  • Lizzyb

    I also knew like SR hates our Prez, she was drippin' with hate this morning and unforgiving of a young black man. Everyone she hates gets the same life sentence in SR's book no matter the crime.
    Thank GOD you are not in charge, THANK GOD! I hope I learn forgiveness all day every day because I can be mean and evil and drip with hate towards folks and its so not a good look. I don't get the glory the former drug dealers get here, i don't know why one baby mama is lifted up and glorifed and one is called a hoe all day long.
    Why some black love is good love and the other is torn apart like used tissue at the first whiff of it. Why gossip is only great if its ugly. I been with you SR forever, I ignore how you stan for the white man or actually any man besides the black man, how Obama never had a chance with you, how you hate Bey and her man and Diddy and some of his women and you love TI and Tony and Monica and her thug of the moment. I watched you lynch (yes lynch) with words Chris Brown and I avoided the posts, the headlines were bleeding with the angry hatred you have, no judge no jury, CELL, lock toss the key. Got it. It had to piss you the F off watching him moonwalk back into the career he was born for. I imagine you jumped up and down and screamed bloody hell, but SR CBreezy has been forgiven by all who matter. Get use to seeing him around. Now I am off to write him a little fan mail and include how he must never ever again acknowledge you exist.
    just my thoughts on all of this..
