Queen Latifah is on ‘Team Breezy’Published by Dior Noir on Friday, July 2, 2010 at 9:09 am.
Queen Latifah thought Chris Brown’s performance at the last Sunday’s BET Awards, which she hosted, “was amazing, just amazing.” ”Not only was it a knockout performance, but his heartfelt emotion, you can’t plan that, you can’t write that, it’s the truth,” she told The Dish Rag.
While other stars, including Diddy and Trey Songz, have also applauded Chris’ emotional, tear-filled performance, some people are still debating whether his set was genuine at all. US Weekly magazine claims to have a witness that saw Chris’ bodyguard giving him tear-inducing eye drops before he hit the stage.
Regardless, The Queen thinks it’s time to forgive and move on.
“The guy is a young guy and he made a big mistake and he needs to bounce back from that. And he needs an opportunity for a second chance,” she says. “We can’t condemn that kid. He’s a kid and he needs to correct the mistake for the future, not live in the past.”
“He needs to be forgiven. Enough already. We can’t keep beating him up. [Rihanna's] going to grow and he’s going to grow and we have to allow them both to do that.”
