Lance Bass Calls Out Chris Brown on Using the ‘Other F-Word’
In pop music, we have "New Couple Alerts." But our favorite trouble magnet Chris Brown has his own category and it's a "New Feud Alert," since he is engaged in so many of them. The latest feud to pop up on the Breezy radar? Former 'N Sync member Lance Bass, who disapproves his use of the "F" word.
The artist, known for his liberal use of the word "f----t," whether he drops it in a hit song like 'Look at Me Now' or hurls it when fighting with fans and fellow R&B star Frank Ocean. Someone in Breezy's crew reportedly hurled the slur at Ocean, who came out as bisexual last year, after their big parking spot brawl.
One person who is not happy with the way Breezy tosses the word around is Bass, especially since he is gay himself.
"Calling people faggot 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," the former boy bander told Celebuzz. "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."
Bass wishes that Brown had some more sensitivity, since he is a black man who has understands the damage that words can inflict.
Bass continued, "He 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. 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."
We're sure that Bass' intentions are good ones, but it's not likely that Breezy is listening or taking them to heart. He's just not that type. Still, Bass offered his opine on Breezy's issues, of which there are many. Of course he took a moment to call out his girlfriend Rihanna, who couldn't stay away even though Brown beat the crap out of her four years ago.
"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," Bass said. "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.”
Bass called Breezy's moves "dumb" and encouraged him to take responsibility for his factions and eventually rehab himself, suggesting that maybe a jail stint is in order. Clearly, Lance Bass has thought long and hard about this.
We wouldn't surprised if Breezy hit back in a nasty way. Or maybe he'll try that new "ignoring everyone" thing and paint another himself-as-Jesus picture, with Bass as Judas Iscariot, since Brown sees everyone as his judge, jury and executioner. Everyone but RiRi, that is, and we're guessing that's all that matters.
