Brown Blasts Boxing Controversy
CHRIS BROWN has defended his decision to sing the American national anthem at the boxing bout between FLOYD MAYWEATHER, JR. and SHANE MOSLEY at the weekend (01-02May10) - following a raft of criticism.
The singer took the mic before the fight in Las Vegas on Saturday night (01May10) to belt out The Star-Spangled Banner, but his performance was met with a muted reaction from the crowd at the Palms Hotel.
Brown's appearance at the event was also met with criticism from online bloggers, who slammed the decision to give the hitmaker a star turn at a boxing match, following his conviction for assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna last year (09).
And the Kiss Kiss star addressed the controversy with a series of posts on his Twitter.com page.
He writes, "I'm human. How many of u r (sic) perfect? If there is no forgiveness, there is no change... I'm humbled by everything. If I wasn't somewhat sane and loved my fans and music so damn much I would give up, but that's not why I was put on this earth... you'll see!"
The posts have since been removed.
