It doesn’t look like Chris Brown’s feud with Miranda Lambert is going to die anytime soon, and if it was up to the country singer, Chris would probably already be dead.
The two musicians have been using Twitter to fight with each other recently, a battle that started when Miranda questioned Chris’ presence at the Grammys – she didn’t understand why a guy who beat up a girl was given the chance to perform twice. Instead of letting go, of course Chris had to respond by trying to throw his Grammy in everyone’s face.
Obviously the accolade was not a celebration of Chris Brown’s music, not his character, so Miranda Lambert (who is also a Grammy winner) has taken it upon herself to try and put Brown in his place. Last night at a UMass concert she performed her song “Gunpowder and Lead,” a tune about domestic violence. The song obviously reminded her of Rihanna, so she said this before she started singing: “I’ve been in a world of hurt with Chris Brown fans lately, but see, I just have to speak my mind because where I come from beating up on a woman is never okay.” (Via Too Fab.)
Then she said something that really might set Team Breezy fans off: “That’s why my daddy told me early on in life how to use a shotgun.”
“Gunpowder and Lead” is about a woman who plans on shooting her abusive husband when he comes home, so was Miranda Lambert trying to say that Rihanna should have had a gun with her when she got attacked? It’s pretty crazy to think that Breezy might not even be here today if RiRi had a weapon to use for self-defense on that fateful night.
Of course RiRi also took on violence against women in “Man Down,” and she shoots a rapist in the music video for the song. So does she also think women should shoot their attackers?
Evidently not – Rihanna has seemingly patched things up with Chris Brown, because she invited her ex to her birthday party, and they might be collaborating on the song “Birthday Cake.” It would certainly be interesting to see what Miranda Lambert had to say about that. Sadly there are some women who cannot stay away from their abusers, and RiRi might be one of them.
So do you think Miranda went too far with her shotgun comment, or did she make a good point by pointing out that Chris could have been killed if he had attacked a woman with a weapon?
