“Music is for everyone. When you put genres on music, you segregate it. I want to always be able to do any kind of music I want. When I get older I might want to do a country album. Next year, I might want to do all hip-hop album or alternative album.”
Miranda Lambert’s war of words with Chris Brown has now gone from Twitter to YouTube.
Lambert performed last night at the Mullins Center in Amherst, MA. As her band started playing her anti-domestic violence anthem “Gunpowder & Lead,” a fan held up a sign that read: “Take Notes Chris Brown.” Lambert walked over, took the sign and showed it to the crowd, which roared its approval. “Nothing else needs to be said tonight, ladies and gentlemen,” said the fiery singer.
But she did say more. After posing with the sign and encouraging folks to take pictures and post them on Twitter, Lambert added, “I’ve been in a world of hurt with Chris Brown fans lately. But I had to speak my mind because where I come from, beating up on a woman is never okay. So that’s why my daddy taught me early on how to use a shotgun.”
See the video below:
Lambert has taken issue with Brown performing not once, but twice at the Grammy Awards. The R&B singer pleaded guilty to an assault charge after beating up then-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009. Brown was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community labor.
Miranda Lambert isn’t the kind of woman to apologize for what she says – and when she says something, you better believe people listen. The fiery Texan found herself in a little bit of controversy on Twitter yesterday after she objected to the GRAMMY awards having multiple performances by Chris Brown.
Chris Brown pleaded guilty in an assault charge against his then-girlfriend Rihanna. He assaulted her on the eve of the 2009 GRAMMY awards and only received six months of community labor, and was ordered to stay 50 yards away from the pop superstar. However, if the two were at a music event together, like the GRAMMY awards, he only needed to stay 10 yards away.
“How dang long did they give Nicki Minaj to do whatever that was? Strange. And Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl… Not cool that we act like that didn’t happen. He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys. Now…Bruno Mars…yes please! That rocked and also Adele…duh! And Jennifer Hudson! That’s real music. kinda made up for all the suck.”
Pretty sure she said what we all we thinking. “Gunpowder And Lead” is a reference to her 2007 hit about a domestic assault victim seeking revenge against her lover.
