Looks like a chain of attention seeking celebs are taking turns on Twitter throwing cyber jabs at Chris Brown after virtually every performance and perhaps, reviving their career at his expense. However, artists like Pink never left, so it was odd for the singer to accuse Chris Brown of lip synching for a high energy performance that might knock the wind out of anyone and this taboo act highly forgivable.
There was also, a hint of her dissatisfaction with seeing her use of a bike ramp at AMA’s repeated in CB’s performance. So I took a look at both Chris Brown’s recent performance versus Pink’s past performance and while there is intense energy and similar props used both performers bring a different flair adding their own uniqueness to props used.
While it seems like Pink should be flattered with the similarities many artists would have a brief issue which is understandable. Pink deserves all props, but at the same token, no prop on stage is meant to be used once. And– if someone of a different gender, race, height, weight can bring a different interpretation of an artist’s past performances consider oneself relevant in the socio-economical chain of entertainment and just let it go. Or return with same original element and out do oneself and the imitator. Throwing slingshots at imitators proves non beneficial to the accuser. Look at the backlash Lil Kim has received for outing Nicki Minaj.
The last question to unearth here is if whether or not Chris Brown was even thinking of Pink when he developed his stage routine. Someone familiar with the success of former props could have suggested the props. And not to be nagging, but upon watching Pink’s past AMA performance I couldn’t help but to notice a trademark dance of hit girl group TLC. See video below and let’s just hope Pink and Chris Brown one day do a duet together.
All that flattery on Twitter has got to indicate some attraction to each others work, but when statements fly on Twitter vicious words are thrown back which I call a case of ‘cyber ego protective mode.’ No one wants to be checked or defamed on Twitter.
On that note, Chris Brown’s performance was clearly defined and well executed, where I believe Pink approached her performance in hap hazard ‘go go’ mode wrapped in a holiday wrap outfit. If you are going to bring that kind of heat on Twitter at least make a fashion statement on stage that never goes out of style. Some things are better left alone. Pink is still a great singer/performer although she clearly lost this latest cyber war battle to Chris Brown. The drama around the singer never ends.
