Chris Brown broke down in tears during last night’s BET Awards as he attempted to sing “Man In The Mirror,” part of a tribute to Michael Jackson a year after his death. It’s unclear what prompted the sobbing — mournful loss of the King of Pop or perhaps just painful introspection — but either way, the crying makes for strange, compelling, and generally bizarre TV. It’s hard to tell if people in the audience are shocked or moved (or both) by what’s happening on stage. Check out the clip above (while it’s still on YouTube) and judge for yourself.
It all begs the question: has Chris Brown paid his debt to society? Or is his career dunzo? Thoughts?
