Comments OffLloyd Explains his “I Told Chris Brown To Cry” comment

 
 
 
Lloyd you have some explaining to do my friend. In a rap-up.com  interview, Lloyd said the following:
 
“He’s back with a vengeance! He has a point to prove. All the people who wrote him out, they’re gonna find a place in their heart for him again. I told him man, you gotta get up there. You gotta cry, you gotta really show your heart to the world and they’ll understand. Time heals all wounds.”
 
Lloyd then posted a statement on his blog clarifying what he meant by “I told him to cry”.

“I consider Chris a friend. He’s been through a lot in the past couple years. I never told him to go on stage and cry. We spoke recently, and I told him as a friend that people hadn’t really seen him be vulnerable about his situation last year [with Rihanna]. I thought he was holding back and needed to let that emotion out. Him crying at the BET Awards was real, I could feel it.” said Lloyd.

“I think he cried about a number of things. About the fact that he thought people would hate him forever because of one mistake. Feeling that love on stage was probably overwhelming. Plus MJ being gone and him performing “Man in the Mirror”, that song is powerful, especially for his situation. It pushed him over the edge.”

Responding to the many blogs and fans that took Lloyd’s comments as a negative statement against Chris Brown, Lloyd offered this response, “To say that he was faking or that I’m hating on him, that’s some bull shit. Last week Essence.com asked me what artist most embodied MJ. I told them it was Chris. I never saw MJ perform live, but he [Chris Brown] is the closest thing I’ve witnessed. Chris is back, and I’m just as excited as his fans are. It’s just frustrating that people want to make everything negative.”

If that was an act then Chris Brown is in the wrong industry. Because that was one hell of an emotional performance!

0Interview Exclusive: Lauren Hill

During a recent NPR interview with Zoe Chace,  Ms.Lauryn Hill  finally opened up to talk about why she stopped recording and a very possible comeback in the works.

NPR’s Zoe Chace, in her report on Hill, says that before the interview she is told not to touch the singer or look her in the eye, and that Hill, instead of addressing people directly, sometimes writes directions on a post-it note and sticks it on people’s chests. Chace says that she didn’t actually expect to get an interview but was pleasantly surprised when Hill tells her to get in her car after a show. She says Hill appears to be “very sane, very serious, still so beautiful.”

Chace asks Hill why she stopped putting out albums, and Hill replies that “There were a number of different reasons, but partly, y’know, the support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, things that I needed to go through and experience, in order for me to feel like it was worth it.”

Hill, who grew up listening to male vocalists such as Jackie Wilson, Donny Hathaway, and Stevie Wonder, says she’s looking for ways to increase her vocal range.

“Most people have never really heard me sing-sing-sing,” Hill says. “If I do record next time, perhaps there will be an expanded context. People can hear a bit more.”

Hill, who has five children, also tells NPR that she may be ready to record some new material, now that her kids are starting to grow up. “I think it’s just time, and I’m starting to get excited again,” Hill says.
