While Chris Brown‘s dancer, B Shaw, claims that Jay-Z was the reason Chris was unable to perform last night, our partner GossipOnThis.com claims to have exclusive insider information that paints a very different picture:
“Chris Brown was supposed to open the show but BET executives were not agreeing to let Chris go on stage after they had already established that he was performing,” a source revealed to Gossip On This. “A lot of reports were saying that he was using this as a way to rebuild his image. So at the last minute, he was pulled. … After 3 days of rehearsal, they pulled Chris Brown from the show…”
Either way, BET was foolish for not allowing Chris Brown to perform. According to multiple reports, the Jackson family wanted Chris Brown to perform a tribute to Michael. After all, no one would have done it better. The 2009 BET Awards were truly a mess. Hopefully the 2010 brings something way better.
Rest In Peace Michael Jackson – the greatest there ever was, and ever will be.
