Chris Brown Speaks On The BET Awards

A couple of days ago, I snatched for you a copy of the Drake/Chris Brown Vibe Dual cover.  Chris Brown opens up about his views on this past BET Awards ceremony which honored the late and great performer Michael Jackson.  Chris was taken out of the show’s line up after the incident involving Rihanna.  Here’s what he had to say about it:

“It was wack. I’ll keep it a hundred. The BET Awards was horrible. I was watching it, holding my face like, ‘Oh my God this is wack’. I didn’t get it. Michael Jackson was such a big entertainer. And I’m not dissing any of the artists who did the songs. But I was expecting a lot more energy for Michael. And BET Awards usually comes hard. I was expecting them to have Usher, Omarion and even Justin. And I was expecting Ne-Yo to dance. They were so bent on not getting me there that they messed up their own show.”

Now, even though I had my thoughts and resentment towards Mr. Brown, I felt that he would have added to the show quite nicely, especially with his skill for dance.  Smh.

Today, Michael Jackson would have turned 51.  MJ’s father Joe Jackson had mentioned that the body of his son would finally be buried in a private ceremony on his birthday.  But, there are now reports that the Jackson family has rescheduled funeral service for September 3, because some family members did not want to bury the star on his birthday.

Understandably so.

Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29 in Gary, Indiana. He started his career at the age of 5 with Jacksons 5ive, later launching his solo career that made him the most prominent entertainer in decades.

There are a few events planned to mark Michael Jackson’s birthday:
