When Chris Brown broke down in a theatrical hurricane of melodramatic emotions at the end of his Michael Jackson tribute at the BET Awards this past Sunday, some accused his ass of faking that mess for sympathy. They felt that Chris was manipulating bitches into forgetting how his fist made Alien Princess RiRi cry by crying tears himself. And now a source tells UsWeekly that Chris’ eye jizz of redemption was completely manufactured.
The backstage source claims that right before Chris Brown went out on stage, his bodyguard handed him a bottle of tear-inducing eye drops. The source adds, “He rubbed it in and he started crying.”
Chris denies this and his spokesbitch says that he “was moved by the opportunity to pay tribute to his idol.” Um. Okay, but by ruining the song with his damn crying Chris was really paying tribute to himself. That was served with a severe Joe Jackson shank eye.
Do I believe that Chris would actually fake that shit? Sure. Do I think it matters if he did? Not really. Those who ate up his tears with a spork were probably already rooting for him before the performance. I don’t think it really changed anything. But if Chris was faking it, why did he need a bottle of glycerin? All he had to do was stare at Prince in the front row for a few seconds. Prince’s precious beauty and sweet sweet pucker brings us all to tears.
