Miranda Lambert: Take notes, Chris Brown

Miranda Lambert was serious when she posted to her Twitter account, following the 2012 Grammy Awards, that she thought Chris Brown should listen to her song, "Gunpowder and Lead."

At a performance Thursday in Amherst, Massachusetts, Lambert held up a fan-made sign encouraging the 22-year-old R&B singer to pay close attention to the track, which focuses on a woman who grabs her gun as defense against an abusive husband. The sign Lambert held read, "Take notes Chris Brown."

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8L4CT4G2DAc&w=420&h=315]

Lambert told the cheering audience, "I just have to speak my mind, because where I come from, beating up on a woman is never OK. So that's why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun."

In 2009, Brown pleaded guilty to one count of assault in the domestic disturbance that involved his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, the night before the Grammy Awards.

The singer - whose Twitter account was the subject of controversy earlier this month, when he used it to respond to those critical of his appearance at the Grammy Awards on February 12 - seemed to respond to Lambert's performance on Saturday.

"Using my name to get publicity? I love it! Perform your heart out!" he tweeted, following it up with, "Go buy @miranda_lambert album! So motivational and "PERFECT"!"

The singer's tweets also inspired a series of reports when he wrote early Monday, "Happy Birthday Robyn!"

Robyn, of course, is Rihanna's first name - and February 20 is her 24th birthday. She replied with a simple thanks, but the exchange has drawn a healthy amount of buzz.

    You can always tell when someone is truly W-Trash! It's one of their traits to tell black people to "stay in their place". A true sign of a racist and usually a southern one. She needs to worry about her career and going on a diet. Rhianna loves that man and who's to say she didn't attack him first. Mind your own business Miranda if you want to be in the news, show more talent!

    I don't think anyone should judge Chris Brown. NO ONE, but Chris, Rhi, & God were in that car that night and Rhi admitted to putting her hands on him first. I don't know anyone with red blood flowing through their body that would not react back with physical violence. I am a domestic violence victim myself and I have forgiven my attacker and I have turned him over to the Lord. It is true that you will NEVER forget what happen, but for your own peace and sanity here on Earth, you MUST forgive and GIVE IT TO GOD. I don't think anyone believes Chris was right for his actions but you can blame him for being a human and displaying human reactions. It's easy for people to judge others who have NEVER been in certain situations.

    I agree that Miranda is brave for speaking up, but if you're going to speak about one you need to speak about all the celebrity abusers. It's ironic to me how when a celebrity of public figure does something that your neighbor is doing everyday, people want to speak out against the celebrity but feels it's not their business when it's close to home. There were a couple of times when I screamed for help while I was getting punched in the face in public and everyone just looked. So until you do your part in preventing this violence, do judge the next person cause in reality you are just as guilty as the attacker when stand by and do nothing.

    If a man hits me he wakes up to Hot Grits in bedded in him. Miranda in taking it over board, we are sick of hearing it from her, yeah we all hate a man that hit women. But what do you think we think about women who steal other women husbands away them and from there families? Your no better.

    Wow...to those of you who compare hitting a woman to a "Mental health issue" or a "mistake" – I pray that you are never a victim of violence. Assault and Battery is a crime, you can say that he has paid his time – just go google the photo of Rihanna after his "mistake." Verbally assaulting this singer for expressing outrage is idiotic. I don't care who you are or what race you are...biting a woman in the face is never ok. Understandning the struggle victims of domestic abuse have in loving/hating their abusers the message that is being sent here is that abuse is fine and that we can forgive and forget. Go ahead and verbally assault me for condeming someone who left his woman in the street brusied and bloody...I don't care if it was three years ago or 10 years ago.

    • Sorry Jennifer

      I am sorry Jennifer but I believe that according to good Lords law's sleeping with a married man is a sin and any type of abuse, physical or mental is worng. being a vistim myself, and I am sure having another woman steal your husband is mental abuse, so I would say Miranda is a hypocrite and I am glad to know that you were there the night of Chris Brown and Rhianna's assult that you are able to state how she looked or what happend. Pictures do not tell a true story these days with the help of photo shop and eager paparazzi. So as far as that night goes for me, God knows what happen and God will take care of it all.

    Thank you for speaking up. I am a victim of domestic abuse. It still haunts me everyday.
    The only reason that I am still here today, is that the Bullet jammed in the chamber of the
    gun that he tried to shoot me with as my children stood by and watched.
    I have just heard that Rhianna is doing a duet with Chris. So frightening to me.
    These men never ever change. The anger just builds until the next time.
    I know because I tried to forgive. I have done my homework and due diligence.
    Gone to counseling through Women in Distress. Escaped with my life and children's
    life. I am guilty of letting my children see me weak and fall for false Love.
    I hope you don't have to sing at Rhianna's funeral.
    Anyway, I let God handle it. And so he did. My ex is now paralyzed in a wheel
    chair at age 40. He is in a nursing home, cannot speak only in numbers (1234),
    he cannot use his arms to hit another women.
    Don't worry Miranda, God will handle Chris Brown. His karma
    will get the best of him.
    Love you Miranda for standing up, because no one every
    stood up for me. Not even the Police.

    Too bad her Daddy didn't teach her from an early age to keep her legs closed around married men! What a hypocrite! She needs to worry about her own sins, I think she is either jealous of Chris Brown or more likely wants him and knows she could never have him. There have been no shortage of wifebeaters (Charlie Sheen, Glen Campbell etc..,) that she has not only publicy criticized but supported!! She is gross. And I am saying this as a white person who prefers country over Chris Brown's style. There are a lot of us that see right through her hypocrisy and racism!

    Where was Miranda 3yrs Ago when all this first happen? She wasn't saying anything then, she Just trying to make a name for herself in hopes to gain fans & bust her sales. But she singing a song about SHOOTING A MAN. Real way to promote violence, She really needs to sit down & get over herself. What happen between C.Brown & Rih is There business who are we to Judge him or her. If she wants to forgive him & Move past things, she should be able to. GOD WANTS US TO BE FORGIVE. Let him be the JUDGE ON JUDGEMENT DAY. I like both of them for their Music, But Don't Judge Them On Their PERSON LIVES.Who is to say he hasn't change? People Can Change & deserve to be FORGIVEN.

    I didn't read all the comments but here's my opinion. I think Christ Brown has done his court required services/fines whatever. Miranda is using this to SELL RECORDS! If she feels this strongly I hope she has volunteered at Women's Shelters, etc where she could make a difference in someone's life instead of holding up a sign to make a statement. I am not impressed with her using someone else's hardship for her own gain.

    All the more reason that people should drop it. I think those who dislike CB must think that those who are just saying Miranda should mind her business and move on are sticking up for him. I am not. I'm just saying that people need to move on. No one will ever forget what he did no matter how many awards he wins or how many movie roles he gets. That is going to stick with him forever and it should. But at the same time, you're beating a dead horse. People saying that CB is a montser or he's this and that, is like saying the sky is blue. Must we have a reminder of what he did EVERYTIME his name comes up? Even after he's paid his dedbt to society and that the woman he abused is back with him? Again, I don't condone what he did and never will, but I aint gonna talk about it several years after the fact. . . .especailly when the woman he abused is still with him. I'm sure we all have more pressing needs going on in our own lives then to throw our 10 cents about CB and Rhi Rhi. GET OVER IT OR CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN TO CHANGE THE LAW FOR STIFFER PENALTIES. On that note, I'm done because I have a life and a job. And as CB would say. . . . .DEUCES!! LOL

    News flash to all y'all – It's a moot point... Robyn & CB reportedly have been bangin' for over a year. While it's true beating up on someone smaller/weaker makes him a lowlife & actually biting her face makes him a total loser...apparently she's willing to let it go and her idea of living dangerously is crawling back into the sack with him. Lowlife though he may be...she's coming across as just plain stoopid... Not judgin...just sayin.

    ML needs to not provoke someone who has a known rage issue. She is supposed to entertain her audience, not draw attention to something that is so personal to her, and having nothing to do with her music. If she must, perhaps she should right a song about it. It really is none of her business. Having a lot of money doesn't necessarily make the woman too bright. She needs to back off and mind her own business.

Chris brown should have been charged with attempted murder for his actions! And I am not over exaggerating.

    OK I know I am going to get blasted for this but everyone is allowed an opinion and this is mine. I agree that what Chris Brown did was totally not acceptable. But he came out and pled guilty something not many abusers do, he then took his punishment and did everything he was required to do and more, and lastly Rhianna seems to have forgiven him and moved on so why can't everyone else. She was the victim not anybody else. Let's move on and let them get on with thier lives. If it was anybody else besides a celebrity the world wouldn't know anything about it.

Every man is differnet so it is not right to stereo-type, there is no MO that can be true to all, because no 2 people are the same, My husband and I will be married going on 26 years now and he has never laid a hand on me since that ONE time and I am sorry some may not like this but I will take my 24 years of happiness with 2 years of pain all over again knowing what I know. And by the way, he respects and loves him mom very much.

    This is just too funny. Look, no amount of years will go by that will justify what CB did, but at the same time, the man has paid his debt to society and it was 3 years ago, so to talk about something that is old and that is none of your concern is just stupid. And when you add the fact that word is that they might be seeing each other again, the only person who should have an opinion is Ri Ri. Miranda should just mind her business. Again, it doesn't make it right what he did, but at the same time, you have to stop harping on it at some point. Especailly when it appears that you're only saying to gain something out of it yourself. It happened in 2009, and it's now 2012. Rhianna has not let that stop her so maybe we should stop talking about it. And again before some idiot goes off and say something dumb in reply to this, keep in mind that I said that I don't condone what he did and never will. But let's stop harping. PLEASE!!!

  40. People dwell too much on the past

    What CB did was horrible. Should it be excused? By no means. But that's a matter between him and Rihanna to resolve. What all you people are doing is constantly judging the guy as if he's the worst monster in the world. You probably are giving yourselves pats on the back for trying to express your "moral reasoning" throughout these blogs. However, realize that it's easy to say stuff about someone who shows up on the news for such a violent and horrible crime as physical abuse when we do lots of horrible things in our lives each day without even taking time to realize or notice it. We just shrug and say, I messed up, I won't do it again, and then we do it. Sure, none of us beat our spouses or anyone (hopefully not) but we lie, cheat others, manipulate people, cause drama, etc... I could keep going...

    The point is, maybe you people should stop dwelling on someone else's problems and start focusing on your own. He is a monster, yes we know, but the more you spend time focusing on something he did 3 years ago the more you forget that we as a people have our own issues that we so conveniently avoid because of celebrities like Chris Brown, Kim Kardashian, etc.

    I'm so sick of hypocrite Miranda Lambert drumming up publicity for herself. I feel that this is a racist attack against Chris Brown. Now, I'm not for men beating on women. If that is the message she's trying to convey, then go for it. However, singling out one individual I think crosses a line. Why not add names to that sign. Call out other celebrities that have beaten their spouse. Rodney Atkins, a country music singer was recently arrested for trying to kill his wife. He tried to smother her. If Miranda can't forgive Chris Brown for beating Rihanna, why in the world would she let her husband join Glen Campbell on stage? I do believe that he was arrested for beating his wife.

      I would like to thank my personal troll for the his imaginative remarks. I know nothing about Chris Brown's past or present. I think everybody makes mistakes. I don't know whether he was required to get counseling or not. You would think that would be mandatory. If so, maybe he learned the lesson of never putting his hands on a woman. BUT USUALLY, once a beater, always a beater. I could never trust him. Only he can prove himself. Time will tell by his actions.

    Um, here is the problem. A shotgun is a deadly and lethal weapon. The law limits self-defense to equal force. Using a shotgun against an unarmed assailant, man or woman, is not justifiable homicide with the possible exception of home invasion within some States that have the "Make My Day" law.

    Advocating the use of a deadly weapon to threaten an innocent and unarmed person is beyond irresponsible and in this instance seems to fit the requirements of that which is prosecutable. Chris Brown has indeed paid the penalty for his crime and debt to society in the eyes of the law and justice. He has not since recidivated (reoffended) and can not be retried (autrefois convict) for this offense. These facts make him undeniably free and judicially innocent of any subsequent charges notwithstanding his prior judgment.

    Therefore to suggest even indirectly that Mr. Brown should be associated with and/or subjected to this type of vengeful behavior which is given with a potentially homicidal (actus rea) threat (mens rea) suggestively made against an innocent and unarmed man is legally questionable behavior.

    There is currently a case within the United States Justice system of a wife shooting and killing her abusive husband, she is being tried for murder. The difference is that in this case the man was allegedly armed. The woman is however still being charged with murder as the weapon was not in the mans possession at the time the woman shot and killed him.

    By associating Chris Brown to the lyrics of this song (Gunpowder and Lead), advocating violence along with potential homicide, publishing such a message via (Lamberts) twitter account and using a public event to propagate the message and its cause, what Lambert has done could technically be construed as "defamation per se." Freedom of speech ends at the threat of bodily harm to another person, and in this case the other person is an American citizen, Chris Brown.

    So, if your daddy taught you that using a deadly weapon against an unarmed individual as a means of self-defense is permissible, I am sorry to tell you, the court will see it far differently. You will be charged with felony homicide and/or attempted murder. I believe that said advocating by Lambert in both print and in a public venue of such homicidal violence is contrary to what is legally permitted and morally acceptable in society today.

    Young ladies, please heed this advice from a homewrecking adulterer whose husband sings on stage with a 30 year woman beater...but he's (Campbell) ok with her because he has alzheimers and "looks" like her I assume...Maybe she should hold up a sign and look in the mirror.

    Maybe while her daddy was teaching her to use a shotgun, he should have been teaching her to forgive others and love thy neighbor? What is she doing? Condoning violence? What a hypocrite. The answer to domestic violence isn't to go murdering the abuser–it's to create a safe place for the victim while the abuser answer for their crimes and gets professional help.

    Great lesson there for all your fans, Miranda: remember kids, if someone does something bad to you, you should respond mercilessly and violently. Because we should all be taking our moral cues from celebrities. /sarcasm

    Chris Brown didn't abuse Miranda Lambert. He abused Rhianna. She forgave him. He took his punishment from the legal system and also sought professional help. So why do people continue to bring this up? If anything's still getting beat around here it's a dead horse.

    Coming from a womens perspective I can say this kind of thing is a bit hypocritical from this womens point, if youre going to blast all women beaters then do ALL or do none. The fact that Chris beat Rih is nothing to "get over" because its an issue that concerns the nation and by this I mean the action not the artist themselves. I think the whole Chris/Rih thing is OLD the the people should be let live...we all make mistakes... YES WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. If you were in the spot light and someone held over your head for a decade youd find it ridiculous too...he is paying more than any of you, me included have an idea I am sure.
    Miranda made a poor choice by blasting another artist but I am sure in time she will learn... and the over weight comment was uncalled for.... singers are singers not models...they dont have to uphold any weight regulations...thats why this nation is full of sick people.

      "we all make mistakes... YES WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES."

      Forgetting to buy a loaf of bread at the store is a mistake. Running the red light is a mistake. Losing your temper and yelling once is a mistake. Beating your girlfriend to the point of hospitalization and being an unrepentant turd about it after the fact is also a mistake, I suppose, but not one people are obligated to forgive and forget about. I don't blame a single person who holds it against Chris Brown, and anyone trying to leverage some kind of moral high ground against Miranda Lambert needs to rethink their position.

    Miranda's family took in vitcims and their children when she was going up. The children stayed in her room, so she saw first hand what this does. I enjoyed Chris Brown's music but I have not brought any of his music since. I believe in forgiveness. But also also believe in forgive but never forget. Maybe you should not always think someone is racist just because they do not like someone's behavior.

      Adultery is not a crime, sinful yes but your local enforcement will not book you on it. Beating someone is crime because it can land you in the hospital or kill in a lot of cases. I am sure if someone beats the crap out of you, you would not be so for forgiving. Just make sure your not so forgivining that you would allow that same behavior in your life. All my male relatives know that I would never take their side if they were to beat woman and that may be why they do not do it. A lot girls think being pulled, pushed and then maybe hit is love. Some men think they own women and that they should be able to do anything and a girl should take it. And based on her photo he beat her like a dude and their where other times when he went into a rage after the beating That type of angry does not go away it just goes dormant until the wrong or right problem. Based on his tweets his angry problems are not solved.

      Good god. No, no one is perfect. That means beating one's girlfriend is a perfectly normal behavior that we must all forget after a few years. That's completely absurd. If Chris Brown showed more humility and contriteness, that'd be one thing. But he seems to think all he has to say about the matter is that he won a grammy, so f..k off. Classy, dude. Classy.

      And it's not remotely on the same plane as one's romantic travails. A man who beats woman has absolutely no moral high ground over someone who falls in love with a married person.

Obviously not because if so you would realize it isn't your place to judge him. Since then he blew up at a morning talk show. No one knows why but they people who were there so if you weren't there you don't know what really went down.

    Leave him alone. Leave Rhianna alone. They have both split up and moved on. Karrauche hasn't said anything about him beating on her nor have I seen her running around with black eyes or big glasses.

      Yes. A real man will walk away and never hit a woman.

      That said, of course no one, man or woman, should physically attack the other. It's all about channeling anger and frustration. If you can't control yourself then leave the situation until you cool off.

      This behavior begins as a child, by the way. If a parent hits a child because they misbehaved they are actually teaching that child to hit when someone in their life doesn't behave how they want. It's a vicious circle.

      Rhianna did two songs with Chris Brown and has been seeing him for the last year. This is purely racial, how many white man have beat up their girlfriends, wives and nothing is done about. The law already handled this case and the person who was affected the most by Chris Brown's actions has forgiven him and moved on. It is time for everyone else to move on. Miranda Lambert broke up a family so she has no moral ground to stand on and preach to anyone. She basically made a threat against Chris Brown but i guess that is ok.

    I am totally against any man putting their hands on any woman. No matter the situation. The thing that bothers me is that there are so many other stars who are abusing their girlfriend's, yet they won't let Chris Brown live in peace. It happened years ago. Leave them alone. Hell, if it were anyone else, no one would be talking but since they are in the spot light no one can seem to let it go. Point blank period, Miranda was wrong to call him out like that. So now I'm sure he is going to fire back if he hasn't already and she go be mad. And as far as the whole thing on the morning show, too bad. He was there to promote his CD but they were too busy trying to find out more info on the whole deal with Rihanna. From what I understand, it was discussed before the interview that that would not be discussed. Hell, I'd be mad as hell too if people kept bringing it up. Let him live!!!!!

      Chris Brown's team attempted to bully the producers to control interview questions which is absolutely not going to happen on that show or any morning news program. If you're booked as a guest your are going to have to deal with any question thrown at you. He could have answered the questions in a professional manner but his uncontrollable anger took over. It is clear he has a problem.

      It's also clear that Miranda is not the only person disgusted that Chris Brown was booked as a performer. It took a lot of guts for her to speak out against the organizers of the Grammy's – she herself is risking being blacklisted from performing on or winning future grammy's. Keep in mind it was on the way to the Grammy's that the infamous beating occurred. They are associated. And, keep in mind any woman who was ever attacked in that way (or any family member, friend of such a woman) watching the show was also disgusted.

      Being a fan of Chris Brown's music and live show's is one thing...but making excuses for his behavior (which is not just in the past btw) is immature and just plain wrong. No one gets a free pass when it comes to purposefully injuring another human being with no remorse. Chris has shown repeatedly that he's only sorry for the bad press, not for what he did. He has yet to take full responsibility (had the perfect opportunity on The Today Show but instead had a temper tantrum).

Self defense is not violence and in fact is supported around this nation by every law enforcement group in the nation. So, I hope mr. brown has learned his lesson – otherwise, should he take his anger out on another woman – I pray that woman is capable of defending herself and stopping mr. brown from ever hurting again.

Miranda has a point – someone else with a weapon would have ended Mr. Brown's career and his life. Not sure where Rhianna's parents were – but had that happened to me, my father would have served time for assault as Mr. Brown would have met my daddy and it wouldn't have been pretty. Too bad no one took up for Rhianna against her attacker.

      he will never be looked at again for his millions, or his talent by most people. he will be known for domestic violence. it will follow him "all the days of his life." We can forgive – sure we can. Many may forget – but doubtful. He's shown his anger far too many times – and has labeled himself. He needs to rebrand and start over. As for Miranda – she really needs to stop the judging...she's got better things to do. The interesting thing here folks is that this is an issue about two people who obviously don't like each other – one pointing fingers and the other throwing words. No one wins. In fact, I think they are both immature brats and suggest they move on. I wish Chris the best – but know the road ahead will be difficult for him. He made the bed...now he is definitely laying in it.

    Not that I would ever condone hitting a woman but I guarantee Rihanna wasn't innocent in that little incident a few years ago. It was most likely mutual combat but any guy should know that they are generally physically stronger that most women and should restrain themselves from lashing out.

      Yes, because your sample size of one person is an accurate measure of popularity. I don't think Miranda Lambert holding up a sign at a concert will do much, and she doesn't really need much publicity. She's had three platinum albums, and it's likely her fourth will go platinum as well.

      Hmmm, I wonder where Miranda's infamous tweet account was when Charlie Sheen was beating his wives, living in a drunken stupor and displaying 2 women in front of his children, or when Alec Baldwin was bullying his wife and daughter, or when she was creeping around with Blake on her husband. Patty Pieface should really just shut up considering she's only recently gaining real fame because she married Blake Shelton. What a low grade woman to take to public formats to bash someone. I agree that she has found a way to get her 5 more minutes of fame. Once it blows over, she'll still be a no class busybody. Chris has completed his therapy and served his sentence. looks like maybe she shoudl seek some. Deep-seeded issues are surfacing!

      IIt's funny you should use the name karma, because that's just what Brown will get one day, in one shape or another. And anyone who has ever had a child or mother or sister beaten by a fool such as Brown has got to be insane or just a slave to what is popular to praise this performing, self-absorbed, plain-faced, beady-eyed turd that can sing and dance. Karma will kick his butt one day and millions of people will cheer. And if Rihanna goes back to him, she deserves what she gets. This is all proof that money and talent cannot buy brains. Even Cheetah the chimp had a successful career.

      Miranda: Take this as an intervention or an epiphany: Look at yourself. Your, now, husband was married & living with his wife when you two got involved. Having that happen to me – I know how painful that is and it IS also a form of abuse. You caused it. His song GOD gave me you...is shameful. HE had nothing to do with this.

      I can't believe I am going to defend Chris Brown, but I am. It happened 3 years ago.. Ri has obviously forgiven him and he has paid for his crime through the court system. People may think he got off easy, but they need to take that issue elsewhere and get some laws and punishments changed, if they don't like it.
      Meanwhile over at the Oscars, they gave an award to a child molester. One who couldn't even come to the country to accept his trophey because he ran from justice! Yes I'm talking about Roman Polanski and you have stars like Martin Scorsese defending him. This piece of crap ran like a little girly-man and hollywood awards him SMDH

      It doesn't matter if it was 20 years ago – the fact is the man hit a woman and there's no more cowardly act than that. Your disapproval of Miranda's weight is fine – but your childish way of judging her reflects on your immaturity. I think the two of them should stop pointing fingers...hollywood, Nashville – doesn't matter – they always glorify that bad boy/girl and that simply encourages more negative actions. Chris will do it again. It's never a one time deal when you have that kind of anger inside you to hit a woman half your size.

    • Sorry Miranda

      Coming from the woman dating a married man for how long...then getting him to leave his wife and marrying him. Wow!! I am myself a victim of abuse physical & mental, I am friends with my ex now but that doesn't mean I have forgotten, I just know that God has a reason behind everything and that everything works it's way out. I used to love Miranda but I am not as big of a fan now, who is she to say anything about anyone or a situation she was not even part of. To me pain is pain and I bet Blake's ex wife was put through A LOT of pain knowing her husband was sleeping around with Miranda. Yes he was to blame too but come on you can't tell me Miranda didn't know he was married.
