Its been much a debate whether or not multifaceted artist, Chris Brown is cancelled. Last month, he was booed by the AMA’s crowd for winning best R&B artist. However, his UK tour sold out in minutes.

Many are stating that though Breezy has been facing backlash from the American public eye, that doesn’t stop the rest of the world from acknowledging the star that he is. Brown was recently removed from doing a Michael Jackson tribute with Ciara at the American Music Awards.
The “Run It” artist was recently booed at the AMA’s, leaving R&B icon, Kelly Rowland no choice but to defend him and give him his flowers. One fan even pointed out that it’s been ten years since Chris performed in the UK and that they’ve been waiting.
The Tappahannok, VA native received much success on his last album, even sparking a trend amongst many other artists to interact with their fans more during meet-and-greets. Chris Brown’s last US tour finished up recently and featured Atlanta rapper and community activist, Lil Baby , and Comedian Druski.

The American Music Awards (AMAs) were held this past Sunday, and all-around entertainer Chris Brown was set to give a tribute to the late Michael Jackson to celebrate the 40th anniversary of MJ’s classic album, Thriller. The “No Guidance” artist has been compared to the pop icon many times in the past.
Shortly before the show, Chris Brown’s performance was canceled, sparking controversy. Sunday’s show also had the lowest ratings the production has ever seen. Breezy then took to his Instagram story to share his thoughts on the matter.
In a video shared on Twitter, entertainment lawyer John Branca said the tribute was supposed to include singer Ciara and shared his disappointment with ABC, who aired the AMAs. Branca asks, “What’s wrong with ABC? How do you pull a performance with Chris Brown and Ciara?”
In addition, Branca also mentioned that the tribute would’ve been “epic” and felt that ABC was trying to “cancel Black music.”
“They should be ashamed of themselves. Maybe Disney should stick to cartoons. Perhaps they don’t belong in the music business.”
Despite the cancellation, Ciara posted a video of her and Chris practicing for the performance with a tribute to Michael Jackson.
