Lance Bass is not happy with Chris Brown.
The former N*Sync singer and current host of Sirius/XM’s “Dirty Pop With Lance Bass” called out the controversial R&B singer over Brown’s alleged use of the word “f—-t” during an altercation with openly bisexual singer-songwriter Frank Ocean during their well-publicized brawl two weeks ago. Speaking to CeleBuzz, Bass said that Brown, as a black man, should know better than to toss around hateful expletives that are offensive to specific groups of people.
“Calling people f—-t and that stuff, I mean, he may not even mean what he means, but it’s a derogatory term that people throw out there and without even knowing why they are saying it,” Bass said. “But when it comes to Frank Ocean and knowing that he’s … very out … it was definitely meant to hurt him. It’s never good to throw those words out there that mean so much.”
“[Brown] should understand that being a black man himself. He should know that the F word is just like calling you the N word in a very derogatory way,” Bass said. “When you come from a minority like that, being gay or black or whatever, it’s like there should be an understanding, like we all get each other. But you don’t see that a lot, which is really sad.”
“I think there are a lot of people out there that have anger issues, and you can definitely see that in Chris Brown. I hope he gets the help he needs,” said Bass. “I hope Rihanna understands what she is in. I see it happen so many times in couples, where it’s like an abusive relationship and you don’t know it’s an abusive relationship.”
“I know he’s just doing some dumb moves right now. I think he needs to take responsibility for it. I don’t know if it’s drugs and alcohol and that type of stuff, but I really hope he comes to think that he’s really making dumb decisions right now.”
“I think everyone can change, [and] I hope that he can change his tune. [But] we have all seen he hasn’t rehabilitated himself whatsoever,” Bass added. “But you look at Lindsay Lohan and different celebrities that keep getting in trouble and keep getting in trouble. There is obviously a problem there. Really, the only way to solve that is, you are going to have to go to jail. They are going to put you locked up for a long time for you to really learn a lesson.”
