Lots of buzz is going on after didn’t perform at Sunday night’s BET Awards in Los Angeles, while Ne-Yo and Jamie Foxx performed several times at the event. A source tells GossipOnThis: “A lot of reports were saying that he was using this as a way to rebuild his image. So at the last minute, he was pulled… After 3 days of rehearsal, they pulled Chris Brown from the show.”

Meanwhile, someone who apparently was one of Chris Brown’s dancers claimed Jay-Z had a major hand in denying Chris from hitting the stage in apparent retaliation for assaulting his prized artist Rihanna. “bshaw721” wrote on his Twitter (@bshaw721) last night:

Jay-Z is mad childish. Never keep a person from paying there respect.

So Jay-Z tells BET that if chris performs that he will not perform. Ummmm… Wait for it… WHO CARES!!!

    If BET is banning all performer who have had legal issues and or are felons then they may as well not have a show because 90% of the performers have had some legal run ins–including old camel faced Jay Z. I just find it ironic that the show was honoring a man, Michael Jackson, who, God rest his soul, had major legal issues far beyond what c brown plead guilty to. Child molestation accusations trump a fight with your girlfriend any day of the week. BET made a BIG mistake by not letting Chris perform. Many viewers, including myself, watched the whole show waiting for him to do the final tribute to MJ. Had I known he wasn’t going to perform I would have stopped watching before 10:00. The show was a mess and c brown would have really done MJ justice. Totally bad move by BET!!

    WOW. that pissed me the fu** off. Yeah the guy was probably trying to rebuild his image after this, but most importantly Michael Jackson was his idol and he wanted to honor his legacy. people need a leave the damn Rihanna situation behind its done and over wit, people can’t be judged off of their mistakes&Chris Brown still has billions of fans so its really not important anymore. and if its because of Jay Z, who gives a fu** he don’t own bet nobody should’ve listened to him; though last night was a good show it would have been even better if Chris Brown was there to honor his legacy, and I honestly think Michael might have wanted the exact same (R.I.P.). not letting him honor his idol over some straight Rihanna bullsh**

    VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!We were all waiting to see Chris Brown give tribute–after all he was a big MJ fan. How dare BET make such a one sided decision by not giving Chris a chance to rebuild his image and also pay tribute to Mike. If that’s true Jay-Z had a part in deciding who the hell does he think he is!!!Chris would of done a WONDERFUL job!!! SHAME ON BET!!!

    That’s freaking dumb!! one thing Jay-Z and bet forgot was that it wasn’t about them or Chris Brown it was about MICHAEL JACKSON! put all that other mess to the side its DUMB! the fact that Chris Brown couldn’t perform because of some power trip Jay-Z decided to take shows how childish and egotistical Jay-Z is. BET disappointed me because they let him have his way Michael Jackson wouldn’t have wanted that it was a sad show…. Sad and disappointing…

BECAUSE IF THAT’S THE CASE I JUST WON’T WATCH IT ANY MORE BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO ME THAT HE IS RUNNING THINGS IF HE CAN TELL YOU WHO HE WANTS & DOESN’T WANT…DOES HE NOT KNOW THAT THINGS LIKE THAT REALLY HURTS PEOPLE FEELINGS… B.E.T YOU REALLY MESSED UP FOR YOUR SELF BECAUSE IF YOU ASK ME JAY-Z PERFORMANCE WASN’T S***…..& CHRIS BROWN I LOVE YOU….

    Michael Jackson without a Chris Brown tribute because of Jay Z? What Jay Z needs to realize that with as many accolades he may attest to he can not think he’s an icon. Don’t hate on Chris Jay Z leave it Rihanna. You would not like for the tables to turn on both you and your girl. You should always remember that your fans built you up and we can truly be the one to shut you down even if you forever remain rich. Their performances could have stayed for another day for this Michael Jackson tribute. Don Cornilius, he just beat the sense out of his wife and look at the time slot he used. Music business, a double edged sword.

    Wow…BET, you didn’t let Chris Brown perform, which would have been the performance of a lifetime and the only one that would really been a true tribute to the King of Pop..remember the who premise of the show was to lift up a man who the media and others tried to bring down. But you allowed a select few, Al Sharpton, Jay Z and Beyonce threaten to pull out. How hypocritical is that…left up one brother while black balling another. That’s what’s wrong with us…we have it so twisted. It’s not the white man trying to hold us down because they don’t have too…they already know that we’ve got that covered. FYI, Jay Z has a rap sheet so why was he allowed to perform?

  9. tasha says:

    That’s a shame!! Chris Brown has always been a very big fan of Mr.Jackson…unlike other artists he always made it known who his idol was…now BET had people making tributes to the king wen I never even heard them mentioning the king before… and if the rumor is true with Jay Z then he has a lot of nerve… I would rather watch Chris Brown perform then to watch his WHACK performance and his wife’s…if Chris would performed no one would even care about there performance

    Worst BET Awards ever… Jay-Z is a hypocrite, I would be mad if I was Beyonce, Is he into Rihanna or what?

    That’s out of pocket for them to not let Chris Brown perform at the awards. I feel like Jay Z disrespected Michael Jackson and his family and he was being really selfish with a situation that had nothing to do with him. Chris Brown beating on Rihanna was wrong but yet he wasn’t beating on Jay Z or his girl so Jay Z shouldn’t be so much involved and in my opinion that’s a insult to Beyonce because he making a big deal of another woman and Rihanna should of been able to control her man and let it be know to never to his hands on her. And I feel like the BET people should of thought of it instead of letting Jay Z give them a choice and because Michael Jordan is way bigger than Jay Z. So there for the BET awards was ruined due to Jay Z and BET not thinking for themselves and in my opinion Beyonce needs to set her man straight.

    I’m upset at BET for allowing this mess to happen, its not about Jay-Z and he is not perfect himself and God does not like ugly…Jay Z, you’re on top but what goes around comes around so you better be careful how you treat people, and I thought bey was a strong woman but I guess not since she didn’t talk to her husband about his attitude towards the situation, losers!!!! Don’t worry Chris, you are a great artist, so what if people knock you down, that’s life, get back on your feet and let the world know what your about, BET you owe the fans a better tribute, and the line up should be Chris Brown, Ginuwine, and Usher as performers!!! Get it done

  13. LIL BIT says:

    I DON’T SEE WHY THEY JUST DID NOT LET CHRIS BROWN COME ON THE AWARDS… I NEVER LIKED JAY-Z ANYWAYS HE IS FAKE AND I HOPE HE DIES… BUT THAT’S JUST ME.
    EVERY TIME I SEE HIM ITS LIKE WHY EVEN SHOW UR FACE JAY-Z YOUR UGLY AND HIS MUSIC IS WHACK.

    That pissed me the fu** off nobody listened to Jay-Z’s whack ass performance and Beyonce wasn’t even fu**in relevant that night I only wanted to see Ne-Yo, Jamie Foxx and Chris perform and when do they let stuff go they made a tribute to a man who possibly molested 6 kids and they don’t let Chris Brown perform I can think of a couple r&b artist who fu**ed big time : R. Kelly/Bobby Brown/ Whitney Houston/ Mya etc. That’s just a few BET really fu**ed up for me that was a bitch move Jay-Z and Beyonce made.
