Chris Brown performed on the “Today” summer concert series this morning — just a few blocks up from where he trashed the “Good Morning America” studios in March.
“Today” hyped the four-song appearance all morning, tweeting that it was the concert series’s biggest crowd ever and estimating the attendance at 18,000.
Among those 18,000 — plenty of women, a few escorting their hysterical tween daughters.
We know: everyone deserves a second chance, and blah blah blah.
But it honestly astounds us a little that Brown’s female fan base has stuck by him, and that he’s continuing to garner new, young girl fans.
It surprises us even more that “Today,” which only gives a handful of artists each year the giant performance platform that is this timeslot, would take a chance on Brown.
The hole in the programming if he had gone AWOL today wouldn’t have been a small one.
(By the way, Brown spent most of this week denying reports that he tossed around gay slurs during a pickup basketball game.)
