Chile, this Labor Day weekend / Atlanta Black Gay Pride weekend has been eventful to say the least. Thursday folks got ran over by a car at Bulldogs following a fight. Friday someone got stabbed at Bulldogs as part of a fight. Saturday, Keyshia Cole, Remy Ma, and myself were f&cked over by a promoter and did not get paid. Also on Saturday, a bunch of excited fans got shafted by Chris Brown who refused to fulfill the services he was contracted for at a lesbian pride party, because he saw a sprinkle of gay men.
I’ll spare you guys a long drawn out story. Chris Brown was in Atlanta as part of his “One Hell Of A Night Tour.” In addition, he was participating in Ludacris’s Luda Weekend celebrity basketball game. On top of all that, Chris was secured by Traxx Girls to make an appearance at a lesbian party. Chris was not booked to perform, but was expected to appear, and introduce Teyanna Taylor, who is currently on tour with him.
Chris Brown arrived at the party, but refused to come inside after spotting a few game men. His reasoning for not coming inside was that he agreed to party for a crowd of all women. I’m sure that was the terminology used to describe that this party was geared towards gay women and not gay men. Nonetheless, during pride weekend, I think it is unrealistic not to see any gay men Mr. Brown. Not to mention, you roll with a bunch of sissies anyway, so I don’t really see what the problem was. When Chris performs in sold out arenas, trust me there is cornucopia of gay men there, so Chris, cut it out!
I think it’s unfortunate for mainstream artists to take people’s money with the complete prior knowledge of knowing what the event is and being very clear about what the event is about. I’m completely baffled.
You know it’s gay pride. You knew you agreed when you sent the contract in and took the money.
Chris Brown had these lies to tell:
I know for a fact that Chris Brown is telling a got damn lie. I am close friends with one of the premier promoters here in Atlanta that throws parties for the guys. He informed me MONTHS AGO that he along with female party promoter almost secured Chris Brown as talent for a joint party with the gay boys and lesbian girls. Chris’s people informed my promoter friend that Chris WILL NOT appear at any event catering to gay men, but has no objection to doing a lesbian party. That is Chris’s prerogative. He has the right to appear wherever the hell he wants. No harm no foul there. However, when you accept monies to appear at a lesbian party, then don’t fulfill your contractual obligations because you see a few sprinkles of gay men, that’s just f&cked up. I’m just trying to figure out what world Chris Brown lives in? Occasionally lesbian girls hang out with there gay homeboys, and vice ersa. If Chris had any objections to being around gay men, then he came to the wrong got damn city. Double worse, he picked the wrong got damn weekend.
I’d like to see what sort of PR spin will be put on this one. I’m more than sure Chris Brown will be performing at some LGBT televised event real soon, in an effort to show the world that he is not homophobic.
