Miranda Lambert Continues Her Anti-Chris Brown Tirade in Concert
After Chris Brown was given the stage for not one but two Grammy performances this year, Miranda Lambert has had no problem stepping up to let her fans know how she feels about the hip-hop artist and his past as an abuser. Not only did she tweet several times with her feelings on the matter, but Lambert finally took her anger to the stage at a show this week, as seen in the below video Taste of Country received from a fan.
Walking to the front of the stage, Lambert picked up a giant green poster from an audience member in the front row. Holding the poster up, she asserted into the mic, “Nothing else needs to be said tonight, ladies and gentlemen,” revealing the neon sign that reads: “Take note Chris Brown.” What the country star would like Brown to note are the lyrics to her female-empowered song ‘Gunpowder and Lead,’ which tells the story of a woman getting back at her abusive husband once and for all.
In the clip, Lambert can be seen encouraging her fans to get a good picture of her holding the sign, and she even takes some time to carefully display it as she calls out Brown by name and adds, “Beatin’ up on a woman is never OK, so that’s why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun.” From there, she launches into the song about revenge, getting fans excited by its new connotation.
Earlier this week, Lambert tweeted her surprise about Brown’s Grammy appearance, saying, “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.” Brown later responded, not directly to Lambert, but to the media in general, saying “DEAR MEDIA.. Ur plan is not working.. I’m not going anywhere so get used to me.” Perhaps the media will have to get used to Brown’s public appearances, but there’s one blond country power princess who’s not letting him off that easily.
