R&B singer Chris Brown can add another celebrity to his "must ignore" list as Hollywood actor Seth Rogen decided to jab him during the Spirit Awards weekend ceremony.
Rogen took a direct shot at Chris Breezy for getting shine at this month's Grammy Awards three years after his publicized domestic dispute with ex-girlfiriend Rihanna.
This weekend, Seth Rogen joined the growing ranks of Chris Brown critics. Hosting the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (Feb. 25), the comedian was certainly riskier than Billy Crystal at last night's Oscars, the award show Rogen compared to the Grammys telecast two weeks ago. "You say a few hateful things, they don't let you within a few hundred yards of the Oscars," Rogen said, referring to Oscar producer Brett Ratner's firing over derogatory gay comments. "You can literally beat the sh*t out of a nominee and they'll ask you to perform twice at the Grammys," he said, referring to -- but of course -- Chris Brown. (Billboard)
Just last week, professional wrestler CM Punk went at Breezy.
"I never intended to include Chris Brown's name in one of my tweets to start some sort of a controversy or gain publicity," Punk said. "Now that he's thrown accusions my way about using steroids, I feel the need to reply. ... I don't hit women, period -- In my world, women are to be revered and respected and I firmly believe that in this life, there are consequences and repercussions for people's actions and I don't think Chris has paid for what he's done. ... So Chris wants to throw stones my way now, and I say that's fine, but put some gloves on and get in the ring. I will choke you out and I will make you feel as weak and as powerless and scared and alone as any woman who has had the misfortune of knowing a sad, cowardly little boy such as yourself." (TwitVid)
Prior to Rogen and Punk's remarks, country star Miranda Lambert took aim at the Grammy-winning performer at a live concert.
Before singing "Gunpowder and Lead," about a woman preparing to kill her abusive husband, Miranda pulled out a poster with handwritten letters saying, "Take Notes Chris Brown" Them would seem to be fightin' words. Lambert instructed the crowd, holding her artwork high. "I've been in a world of hurt with Chris Brown fans lately...but see, I just have to speak my mind because where I come from, beating up on a woman is never OK." Lambert then cracked, "So that's why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun." Wow, we wonder how she feels about Brown getting back in the studio with Rihanna. Actually, never mind, we don't wonder. We know. (E! Online)
Despite the criticism, Brown and RiRi recently reunited for a couple new records.
Chris Brown and Rihanna are back together, musically speaking. Two songs featuring the singers hit the Internet on Monday. Brown sings on the remix of Rihanna's sexually charged song "Birthday Cake," and she's on the remix of his upbeat tune "Turn Up the Music." Brown tweeted a link to the new version of "Turn Up the Music" on Monday, and Rihanna later retweeted it. She also tweeted about the remix for "Birthday Cake." (Washington Post)
