Chris Brown Denied A Work Visa By the UK for a 2nd Time, Won’t Perform in MJ Tribute
Chris Brown might as well give it up, trying to do any type of performance in the UK… They just don’t want him! Via EurWeb, the singer has been denied a work visa for the second time in the United Kingdom. Why he decided to embarrass himself by trying again just boggles my mind…
One day before the Michael Jackson tribute, Chris Brown has been forced to pull out after he was denied a work visa because of his criminal record.
The singer was set to honor the late King of Pop with a performance at the Oct. 8 star-studded Michael Forever concert in Wales, but he’s now axed his plans after being barred from entering the U.K. due to his 2009 assault conviction for attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna.
The show has been plagued with problems in recent weeks – the Black Eyed Peas dropped out of the tribute on Thursday due to “unavoidable circumstances”, and Gene Simmons was removed from the bill following complaints from fans regarding previous comments the Kiss rocker had made regarding Jackson’s child abuse allegations.
Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Ne-Yo and Leona Lewis are still expected to perform as planned.
Just a few biased thoughts from myself on this one… 1. Why is the tribute being held in the UK? 2. He’s scheduled for a tour stop/performance in Charlotte, NC on the same day – so how was he supposed to do both? Or was that set up after the fact… and 3. Cheryl Cole, who happens to be a white performer, beat up and racially abused a black woman, was convicted for it and then she is allowed into the USA? How ironic is that? lol..
Your own thoughts after the break…
