Lloyd Clears Up His Statement About Telling Chris To Cry+Keri Hilson Talks Losing Her Virginity
Lloyd stated today that he told Chris Brown to cry when he was on stage doing the MJ tribute at the BET Awards. But, as the net went up in arms about it, he says his words were taken out of context. He was simply saying that he was telling Chris to let his emotions flow. And despite folks saying Chris was "acting" that night to get back in people's good graces, he says Chris kept it 100% real.
Details when you read on...
Lloyd posted an interview on his own blog where he says he was in no way hating on Chris or trying to douse his shine:
“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.
He went on to say, “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.”
There's your clarification folks.
