10 real tears or not?

28 06 2010

1.  Chris Brown did a Michael Jackson melody/tribute at the BET Awards.

2.  I particularly like the “Smooth Criminal” portion. Of course, I always love some “Smooth Criminal.”

3.  Have I ever mentioned that “Smooth Criminal” is a favorite of mine? Why yes, I have.

4.  I think he did a decent job, but no one beats the King of Pop.

5.  Unfortunately, Chris Brown beats his girlfriend. I find it totally despicable and disgusting.

6.  So, the question is: when Chris Brown cries his way through “Man in the Mirror,” is it really for MJ? Or is it for his mistakes, his loss of a career, his luck at getting a gig on the BET Awards, and the fact people are actually applauding him?

7.  I remember Usher crying at MJ’s memorial service after his performance, and everyone claimed it was staged for publicity. But, it seems like Chris Brown needs the publicity WAY more than Usher ever has.

8.  It also seems like Chris Brown is trying to change people’s perception of him from woman beater punk to sensitive, emotional, caring man.

9.  I think that may be a tough sell.

10.   Although, I must admit: he is a great performer (and actor).
