    It wasn’t as bad as people are making it seem, but it wasn’t good either. And who’s bright idea was it to have him sing at a boxing match?

    First off, I didn’t see anything wrong with his performance, he was nervous, I think he did good. You haters and Rihanna stans need to get a damn life. I’ve been on her Rap up site, the minute anybody has something bad to say about her, yall clare to God that people are hating on her, but the minute something pops up about Chris Brown, here comes all the hate. Yall sit around all day and just wait for information to pop up about him, and here yall come running. Do any of yall work, do you go to school, hell do you even go to church? If they had of wanted Rihanna to sing it, they would have asked her, is that what it’s all about? Would yall have said the same thing if it was somebody else like Ciara or Keri Hilson? Yall are pathetic and I feel sorry for yall, I don’t understand how people can have so much hate for somebody they don’t even know, yall need Jesus and yall need him bad!

    [Reply]

  18. dude

    @ sierra aka cbe and @ arie, I agree with the both of you. I don’t understand it either, you could tell he was nervous, who wouldn’t be, he is not the first performer that you could hear the nerves in their voice while singing live, and he won’t be the last. But I forget, this is CB we are talking about, the young man that people thinks is the only one in this entire universe that has done something wrong. Regardless, I think he did good, I have nothing against the man, I’m a fan cause of his talents, not his personal life.

    heres the thing y’all haters are tryna find something bad about that performance, when there wasn’t anything wrong with it. In fact it was amazing!!
    i am a big fan of chris brown, but over the past year i have seen all the shit the media have done, and thats why y’all are hating, you have no right to hate you don’t know what went down that night, you only know one side of the story, the media side. He is not the only one in this world to make a mistake, but his has been blown out of proportion because he is so popular.
    And his music is really good.

    P.S. fyi rihanna can’t sing for shit so get your facts right. she cant sing live, but chris can…

    well done chris this was a beautifull performance!!!

  27. so funny

    I know alot of these haters of CB’s are Rihanna stans, rather you people like it or not, he has fans, yes he made a mistake and he is paying for it. I can say he cares for his fans, alot of things he does is cause of them, he wants to satisfy them just like any other artist would want to do for their fans. You Rihanna stans try and bad mouth him in any thing he does, try to make excuses for him that doesn’t make him look good. Answer me this, if you people/Rihanna stans are such advocates of DV, instead of spending so much time hating on him, you could have been supporting the cause. I bet none of you people hold rallies, or fund raisers or anything like that. Has Rihanna spoken out against DV, the last I heard, she didn’t see herself as a victim. Every since she opened her mouth to promote her CD, she has been going to the bank. At least some of the proceeds to his Fan Appreciation Tour went to different charities, one was for the victims of DV. Regardless of why he did it, it was done. He helped her career in a big damn way, everybody knows this. So, all this hate towards him is ridiculous, she doesn’t care how much you Rihanna stans hate him. But since you stans love her so much, stop hating on him and do something with your lives, support the cause, put your energy towards something else, apparently, you have alot of time on your hands, cause all I see you doing is waiting around for anything to post about Chris. His performance was good, I’m still with you CB, a fan, not a judgementa hater like some of these RiRi stans.

    Im surprised he still has stans/groupies when he could more than likely beat their asses too. Evidently being so passionate isnt helping you OR him.

  42. Dee

    OK he’s probably performed in front of 100,000 people before & at awards shows in front of some of the biggest artists in the world & ur telling me he got nervous to sing at a boxing match……….u’ve got to be sh*tting me. He’s never been a great singer to begin with so that there’s no excuse that he just can’t sing(will give him credit for his dancing ability though)

    Chris do us all a favor & hang it up, u know u’ve hit a low when the only gig u can get is singing the national anthem at a boxing

    [Reply]

  43. Sooo

    Firstly, he still has alot of fans….secondly rihanna cant sing thats why they didnt ask her to sing…thirdly, what do u guys gain from hating on chris in every post….you are rihanna fans great then what u doing on a chris brown post when nothing he does will make u happy…

    Get that money chris….u were amazing…

    @ who gonna check me boo, JD, and all the rest of you Rihanna stans haters, whatever the hell yall are, I’ve never seen some more pathetic people in my life, yet yall are the same ones that come on this post and hate on CB, I think yall stupid asses are obsessed with him. Oh, and I see plenty of so called essays written on Rihanna’s pity party of a sight, take yall’s uneducated hating asses back over there.

    [Reply]

  52. truth b told

    These Rihanna stans hate the fact that Chris is more talented than that devil worshiping bitch! Why you all are hating on him, you need to be thanking him, because if it wasn’t for her ass starting a fight and him finishing it, the big head whore wouldn’t be where she is now. Pity party central.

    [Reply]

  53. truth b told

    @ Who Gonna Check Me Boo, @ so funny told the whole truth and nothing but the truth, you just mad. You Rihanna stans are the ones that keep bringing her up on this site. You were the first to comment on that so called looser story, bitch eat rocks, then get a life!

    [Reply]

  54. BreezyFan

    I actually think he did great he was scared yes but it was good.You can’t post something about Chris Brown and there will only hav good comments on it people always bringing Rihanna this ish is old dang. Get a life riri stans please yall r really desperate

    Go Breezy and haters just hate atleast he get paid to do it so shut up!

  55. sam

    Who gonna check me boo, you just had to go and bring that pathetic DJ in this, yes pathetic, he had to record a discussion way before the actual interview, then edit it just to get his 15 minutes of fame, oh, but didn’t it come back around to bite him in the ass. @ DJ, I can’t tell you don’t like Rihanna, if anybody sucks, it’s you and the rest of the haters. Go Breezy, you did good, the haters just mad cause they broke.

    He never could sing. Rihanna has more important things to do like perform in front of thousands upon thousands of adoring fans each night. Truth b told is proof positive CB stans are idiots. Rihanna was a superstar before she started dating him and she is still a superstar now. Eat it haters!

    Well I guess you hate yourself idiot. You Rihanna stans can hate on Chris all you want, fact be told, she is where she is now because she started a fight and got her ass wooped. It’s funny what pity will do for your career. He was bigger than her before this, you Rihanna stans are the ones that are mad that’s why you keep coming over here hating. If she is all that, you wouldn’t be over here throwing it up she is this, she is that, you wouldn’t have to keep defending her on a Chris Brown post.

    [Reply]

  65. damn!

    Is this what being broke will do to a person, turn you into a hater. All this hate for a man none of you haters know. I have nothing against Chris, nothing wrong with his performance. I have a job, and go to school full-time, I guess that excuses me from being a hater. I guess it’s true what they say, hating is a 24 hour job with no benefits, see why yall hate Breezy, not his fault though!

    He did rush, and the way he sang it wasn’t strong enough. He didn’t draw out the notes long enough and he did that vibrato crap too much. I KNOW he can do it, he is talented as hell, just got nervous I guess.

    All you are doing is letting us know you don’t have a life you broke ass hater. You been posting all damn day. The only reason Rihanna has a career is because of Chris, or rather pity. You hating on Chris isn’t going to make Rianna give you any money. And from your the looks of your comments, you don’t even have an education. Get up off your lazy ass, and stop using hating on Chris as a means of support, or didn’t you know hating is a 24 hour job with no benefits.

    Breezy you are a step above ‘em all -Usher, Trey, Mario, BoB, Jason DeAsshole (pompous wanna-be – he actually laughed at Chris’ situation in an interview i heard). YOU are the Best. Stay strong.

    Regardless of where it was and why, you people/haters/rihanna stans, would have something bad to say. As many artists that has sung the national anthem at boxing matches, and there never was a big deal, so the fuck what, it’s not promoting violence or anything like that. If rihanna had of sung, would she be promoting violence, what about beyonce or usher? And I really love how so many of you can predict the future, none of yall no if his career is done, that’s what’s so wrong with this country, so many people trying to play God over other people’s lives.

    I don’t know why Wendy Williams is trying to come at Chris Brown for saying he mistake her from a man at a airport. There have been at least close to a thousand people who have said the same thing, it has nothing to do with being a successful black woman, the gender and race card cannot be played this time. He was just sayin what alot of people have said, not trying to be mean Wendy but, when your show first came out, I thought you were a trans-gender male until, I read in one magazine that you are all woman. I’m justsayin Wendy if you going to call one out on this, call me out to and all the others who have thought the samething about you, it is wrong just to call one out and there’s many, many more you need to call out.

    God, has good things for Chris Brown coming his way real soon. Just be patient Chris Brown his time is always on time. The evil will soon fall(Rihanna). I think he did a dam good job singing at that boxing match, that must have been hard. Because, evil people won’t let the pass go. But, through the strenght God gave him, I really don’t think no one else could have pull that off the dam good like chris Brown. What a great job and nice voice without the background vocals and without instrumental support.

    Chris Brown, God loves you, and I love your work as well as your heart. Who are these people that keep condemning this man. These people that sit in judgement of him as if they are GOD! God forgives the worst of people, yet these people have a god-like complex without the forgiveness of Jesus. But you know what, only God gave this man his talent and ONLY God can take it away. I don’t know Chris Brown or his situation, but NO-one can go as hard as you do so, don’t stop.
