    Lloyd hit the nail right on the head.

    Im dying to hear some new Chris Brown music. Forget Graffiti ( though in my opinion, it was better than exclusive)
    He should come back with a new album, ASAP!

    After that performance, there’s a place in my heart for Breezy!

    When it comes to Hip Hip & R&B We(Supporters)need to stand behind our artist.. No Matter What.. Artist are people and they will make mistakes. We are people before we are role models. The world turned their back on M. Jackson and we should have been there to catch him. We waited until his death to show his support. We Are Not POP CULTURE. THIS IS NOT WHAT OUR MUSIC WAS FOUNDED ON!

    When they deemed Chris a negative figure..We should have said ” He made a mistake but we still love Chris” Yet we played into the media hype. When Micheal Vick stood on trial we also turned our back on him.. When the Jacksons, Lil Kim, & several others started getting plastic surgery.. We turned our back on them…

    We need to stick together and fight for our artist.. That means buying their music, supporting their tours, showing support when they fall & tumble, etc. The reason so many artist cross over is because(WE)don’t support them!

    More than 50% of all Urban music is purchased by Non urban audience.

    I hope Lloyd is talking shit, cause i felt those tears, and GRAFfITI was a very good album just because everyone was mad ith chris they didnt pay attention to such a great album, chris come with another album just like exclusive and graffiti men.

    I hope he was honest with those tears

    When have CB and Lloyd been close for CB to pay attention to Lloyd? Smh! Everybody is trying to take a piece of that moment. Lloyd needs to have a seat as do those who believe him. Tears were real and so was the snot. He can’t act that well to be faking years lol

    Chris isn’t an actor. Just because Lloyd told him to cry doesn’t mean he can just cry. Those clearly are real emotions.

    The lyrics to the song made him cry. Read or listen to the lyrics, if you went through what he went through, it would make you cry too. I cried with him.

    Cassie is so perfect, but she shouldnt be defending the woman beater tho.

    Rap-Up will you post the full Cassie interview from that red carpet P L E A S E ?? :D

    @Shaytan: Ditto! Couldn’t have said better. Why did it have to take for CBreezy to have a meltdown while performing to win those who hated on him in the first place? Now who’s being a FAKE?!

    @Joe’s an idiot, I think Lloyd is jealous and trying to sabotage Chris lol, and there was no way in hell he faked that. Those tears were pouring the hell down, his voice was cracking, it’s whatever. CB is bout to kill the whole damn game!!!

    Reflecting on Lloyd’s statement, I took it as he gave Chris reassurance AFTER the performance that it was okay to cry and show emotion when something is heartfelt, not only for that performance but for any performance. In other words, don’t be hard on yourself for letting emotions show.

    Chris probably felt embarrassed and felt that he gave a bad performance when he did not. Artists are very particular and hard on themselves. Actually people in general are hard on themselves when it comes to their passion. To lift Chris’ spirits people reassured him that it was okay to do what he did and everyone felt what he did.

    Lloyd Didnt ACTUALLY Mean Cry, && he was talking About after the fact, when CB performed. What he meant was you have to show people that you are really and truly sorry. &&CB=BEST PERFORMANCE

  28. Alia

    I don’t think Lloyd meant he told Chris to cry cuz those were genuine tears in my eyes, what he meant was theres nothing wrong with showing emotions kinda like wearing ur heart on ur sleeve and seriously all of u haters sayin his dickriding and shit you don’t know shit they’ve known each other for years dumbasses what he did right their is what u call SUPPORTING his fellow artist/friend smh, but anyways great performance by Chris he was incredible.

    I AM SO SICK OF HEARING ABOUT CHRIS BROWN, TIRED OF HIS SUPPORTERS AND HATERS! JUST TIRED! I’M NOT A FAN OR A HATER (OF HIM OR RIHANNA), BEEN OVER WHAT HE DID.. IT’S NOT MY PLACE TO JUDGE, HE WILL HAVE TO ANSWER TO GOD! SO WHO CARES IF YOU FORGIVE HIM OR NOT, PEOPLE ARE TOO OBSESSED WITH THESE ARTIST’S. I SWEAR THIS WORLD IS CLEARLY COMING TO AN END, PEOPLE ARE CRAZY!!!!

    i felt like chris brown was really crying. i never left chris. everyone is human and everyone make mistakes. people do change,but there is always two sides to a story and she isnt a saint. i love u chris

  36. JOSALYN TILLMON

    Some folks live for the negatives, but honest I dont see anything that was said wrong. I agreed with Lloyd in saying that Chris needed to show his emotions to the world as folks have not seen any type of reaction from him. Im sure this past yr has been tough on Chris and I hope now everyone can let him be and move on with his career because he is one of a few artists (like Lloyd) who can ACTUALLY sing live and sound just as good as his songs. Now thats talent! Lloyd you are loved and so is Chris. Haters can hate because that’s what they do best. They need a life for real!

    man, y’all are so freakin’dumb-ass, lloyd isn’t throwing shade what’s wrong with y’all?, stupid people, smh(to the dumb comments, not the smart comments), where in lloyd’s comments is he callin’ chris brown out?, he was tellin’ chris after the performance, that it’s ok 2 cry, don’t be embarrassed, it’s ok 2 show people that u are sorry,
    damn… some of u guys are just…smh. and @taylor1025, lloyd didn’t call ciara a bitch ok, he said that she was actin’ like some of them, they knew each other be4 they were stars, she’s like a sister 2 him, and they talked, so let that be the past, what the man can’t have his opinion? and ciara even admit that herself, hence I must admit/I got a little too prissy/… I think chris brown, lloyd, mario, trey songz, j.holiday, raheem davaugn, and jaheem are some of the next future generations of talents to come along for a long time. ain’t nobody dickridin’ noboady, everybody was bein’ honest about chris brown performance, so all of y’all that have negative things to say about chris brown, or lloyd, or what lloyd said, y’all could just stfu and stop hatin’, y’all always find somethin’ negative 2 say, it’s amazin’, u haters must really have no life….

    I am one of the biggest CB fans, but please guys let us not IN GOD’s NAME allow artists to use us just because we like their music or because (for the girls) we may be attracted to them. I believe Lloyd did tell CB to cry, and I believe he did take his advice. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve a second chance. Some of us really need to ask ourselves are we doing what is right, or ar we just letting the fact that these are artist we love, and letting them get a free pass. And I want to know this from the girls, please please please tell the truth on this one. If CB looked like Flava Flav, would you all still be forgiving of him. I hope you all can at least be honest here.

    What would you do if you were the one who got beaten up by someone who was physically stronger than you and was trying to push you out of a moving car? What would you do? Would you want that person making millions of dollars after the fact?
