Singer criticises Chris Brown at Grammys

2012-02-15 13:36

Nashville, Tennessee - Country singer Miranda Lambert doesn't get why controversial R&B star Chris Brown was allowed to perform twice at the Grammys on Sunday.

She tweeted on Monday: "He beat on a girl... not cool that we act like that didn't happen."

Brown beat up then-girlfriend Rihanna the night before the Grammys in 2009. He pled guilty to an assault charge and was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service.

'Put back in his place'

Lambert suggested Brown listen to her song Gunpowder & Lead about avenging domestic violence and "be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys".

She attended the Grammys in Los Angeles with husband Blake Shelton who was a double nominee. Lambert joins a slew of others who questioned the move on social networks.

The Grammy-winning Lambert is known for hits including The House That Built Me and White Liar.

A message left seeking comment from a representative of Brown's wasn't immediately returned.

    Soooooo, he is not allowed to progress and share his talent with the world because of something he did and publicly apologised for so many moons ago? Miranda Lambert...jealous much?

    Miranda get over it you are the only person still talking about it. Even Rihanna is over it, its like 3 years ago.

    Come on give the guy a break.He made a mistake and paid his dues to society,and also apologised a countless times to boot.Rihanna has forgiven him,I think its high time other ppl followed suit nd stop living in the past.

    Miranda Lambert can kiss CB's a**. Who the hell does she think she is? Yes he messed up- no doubt about that. But what kind of message is she sending about forgiveness? Nobody can forget what Chris did but we sure as hell can move on. Hell, even Rihanna has moved on- she so much further than Miranda that she has recorded a remix with CB. She forgets she has a kid now. What is she teaching him about making mistakes and forgiveness. She best sit her country a** down! Trying to stay relevant by shining on CB's shine!!!

    We live in a sick world where other things become more important than how we treat each other.Mike Tyson was convicted of rape,yet the world couldn't wait for him to be released from prison so they could see him fight again...
