Well, here’s one song we doubt Chris Brown will be saying “Turn Up The Music” about — “Gunpowder And Lead.” Following the less-than-humble rapper’s Grammy win, Miranda Lambert has taken issue with the music industry’s apparent rush to forgive and forget his felony assault on Rihanna (even though he may or may not still have some serious anger management issues). At a University of Massachusetts concert on Thursday, Mrs. Blake Shelton held up a sign reading “Take Notes Chris Brown” before singing her song about a woman who does away with her no-good, wife-beating husband (as opposed to treating him to birthday cake). Watch below.
Following the Grammys, Lambert tweeted: “How dang long did they give Nicki Minaj to do whatever that was? Strange. And Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl… Not cool that we act like that didn’t happen. He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys.”
At the Amherst concert, Lambert mentioned catching a lot of flack from Chris Brown fans before stating that she had to speak her mind: “Because where I come from, beating up on a woman is never okay. So that’s why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun.” Yikes!
