Award shows never seem to turn out very well for Chris Brown, and his performance at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night left a few celebrities less than impressed.
Singer Pink and husband Carey Hart called out Brown for lip-synching his “Turn Up the Music” performance on the Las Vegas stage.
“Im pretty sure i saw my wife did that same performance, but she was 3 months pregnant and actually sang the song.”
Hart’s diss seemed to confuse some of his followers, who thought he was talking smack about Katy Perry’s performance. The 36-year-old professional motocross racer twice clarified that he was dissing Brown, first tweeting:
He then clarified again hours later, writing:
Hart seems to be referring to Pink’s own performance of “Raise Your Glass” which incorporated a BMX theme at the 2010 American Music Awards.
Pink and Hart weren’t the only ones left unimpressed by Brown’s lip synching — model Chrissy Teigen quipped on Twitter, “Why sing when you can dance?”
The model’s comments didn’t sit well with Brown’s fans, who began tweeting all sorts of hateful messages at her, which she calmly retweeted to show just how insane Brown’s supporters can be, reports Complex.
After hours of hateful Twitter messages sent her way, the 26-year-old model offered some thoughts to Brown’s fans:
You guys are too young for this shit. Too f**king young. How you can even form these sentences at someone you don’t know makes me so sad. Don’t throw around the term ho, c*nt, slut. You’re women. WE ARE WOMEN. and don’t ever think a man can f**king control you. Seriously. this isn’t your f**king job. Stop being psychotic. Be strong women. Listen to opinions without spewing pure maliciousness. I’ve had comments ranging from ‘kill yourself you stupid HO’ to ‘gold digging c*nt’ [to] ‘get a fucking job,’ etc. Because I don’t like [Chris Brown]? I like some of his music too. YOU can like it. You CAN. But WHY the insane hate and ‘team’?? Why can’t you just CHILL THE F**K OUT? In all seriousness, and this has been entertaining, I’m so disturbed. What are you even doing this for? Some good music and dancing? Good god. DO BETTER.”
It’s not the first time Brown’s fans, known as Team Breezy, have lept to the singer’s defense following an award show performance.
In February, they reacted similarly when Miranda Lambert, Wil Wheaton, Jack Osbourne, Michelle Branch and Eric Stonestreet expressed their dismay that the Grammy Awards would invite Brown to perform and honor him with an award, after he brutally assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
