Did Jay-Z Diss Chris Brown at the VMAs?

by at . Comments

Chris Brown's VMA performance was, by all accounts, one of the highlights of the night, and one that left most people in the crowd on their feet.

Jay-Z is not most people, however.

Everyone from Kanye West to Justin Bieber stood up and cheered, but Jay-Z just sat there expressionless, not even smiling as Brown did his thing.

Of course, Jay has other things on his mind - what with Beyonce pregnant and all - but he remains tight with Rihanna, a singer he made famous.

Think his decision not to applaud (around the one-minute mark) was motivated by some lingering animosity? Or is Jay just too cool? Or maybe tired? You tell us ...

why the hell does Jay Z need to grow up? He didn't do anything wrong, what? would Jay Z getting up and dancing show that he likes Chris Brown? No. So I suggest you people who disagree grow up and stop throwing petty little comments at him.

Jay-Z said a lot by doing nothing at all. Chris does have skills at the art of music. Chris is a woman ABUSER who needs some morals. Even if Rhianna is over it, He still is messed up for treating woman like that and will do it again. I will NEVER support him no matter how good of a artist he becomes

He didn't even actually sing, he danced a little, jumped around a lot, flew from wires and lip synched his way through. One of the best performances all night? Hell no.

i think JayZ stayed loyal 2 RhiRhi, i did miss the awards, but it damn sure sounded good. If he sat n his seat, im pretty sure he was being a loyal friend, but then again, i think Rhi has let it go,well i mean she not sweatin it like the rest n the world. N e wayz, congrats B & Jay

Chris Brown is a psychopath and does not deserve praise for anything. Didn't Pink do (a better version) of this performance years ago. First he copies MJ, now Pink. I can't wait to see him locked up in jail forever - anyday now.

Jay either remains very faithful to his artist or he was very unimpressed with Chris Brown like i was...didn't Usher do the same thing last yeat? Honestly his performance would have been more memorable for me had he fallen from the lines he was attached to..and no i dont hate Chris Brown his performance for me was just lacking
