Chris Brown: He's looked at his Grammy from both sides now [Poll]
Chris Brown was all sunshine and light Wednesday afternoon, proclaiming on Twitter, "TeamBreezy, the Grammy I received was for those of you who supported my music and the hard work and growth in my life. I thank you! Love U!"
Nice enough, if you were unaware that on Tuesday he -- or whoever was powering his Twitter feed -- had gone rather ballistic about that very same Grammy.
Seems Chris wasn't cool with it when a few folks, celebs included, raised an eyebrow about his high-profile performance presence at this year's Grammy Awards, only three years since he missed the show after losing his temper and hitting then-girlfriend Rihanna in the face.
(It was an outburst that resulted in a guilty plea to one count of felony assault, for which Brown is still on probation. He's already completed the anger-management program he was sentenced to.)
"How dang long did they give Nicki Minaj to do whatever that was? Strange," Miranda Lambert said Monday on Twitter, discussing performances at the Sunday awards show. "And Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl... Not cool that we act like that didn't happen. He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys."
Well, at a certain point, Brown had apparently had enough. His Valentine's Day outburst read, in part, "HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now!" And in case that in-your-face all-caps missive wasn't enough, he wrapped it up with profanity that you can find here unredacted (the tweet itself has been removed from the @chrisbrown stream).
Brown addressed the media in a later, also-deleted tweet: "DEAR MEDIA.. Ur plan is not working.. I'm not going anywhere so get used to me." The Times' opinion section, for one, has had a thing or two to say about Brown's appearance Sunday.
So who is the real Breezy -- the soft-spoken singer-dancer stumbling over his Grammy acceptance speech for R&B album Sunday and tweeting rainbows and unicorns on Wednesday afternoon, or the zero-to-60 anger blaster telling folks they could "blank off" Tuesday, now that he had that Grammy in hand, imagining a media conspiracy Tuesday morning and beating his girlfriend's face bloody back in 2009?
Let us know what you think in the poll below, and in comments.
