Chris Brown Cries During BET Performance & It’s Awkward For The World

BET Awards are never a letdown. Someone always does something crazy and for once, it wasn’t Kanye West. Chris Brown lost his ess during his tribute to Michael Jackson and just cried on stage.

The singer took to the stage to go through a medley of Jackson’s hits and his moves were impeccable, but as he started to sing, he began that convulsive “I can’t breathe” sob, the one that I do everytime I watch that last Lord Of The Rings movie.

Eventually he just walked off, tears streaming down his face. As much as I want to believe his sincerity, I don’t think anything in show business goes unplanned. And I think the audience felt awkward because no one still knows if it’s acceptible again to like Chris Brown.

The show was hosted by the multi-costumed Queen Latifah, who wore gowns, a leopard-print muumuu,
a basketball jersey and her prison-warden outfit from Chicago
