The 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards are taking place this Sunday, April 7th, in Las Vegas. As we all know, the red carpet and stage fashion choices are some of the most talked about items when it comes to award shows. Back, due to popular demand, is our very own pre-award show fashion reminiscent feature! This time, we take a look at the couples and collaborations of ACMs past … and, boy, have there been some questionably horrific and unquestionably sensational choices in ACM history!
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.
