Blake Shelton is kind of the man.
This is true as a general statement, but particularly if this anecdote is true. According to reports, one of the contestants on The Voice chose a Chris Brown song to sing.
Blake? Not pleased.
In the feedback after his performance, Blake apparently expressed disappointment that this aspirant Chris Brown song, and the dude did not make it through.
True story? Who knows. But if it is ... wow.
Blake's wife, Miranda Lambert, has been upfront about her feelings about Chris Brown, woman beater extraordinaire, so it's not surprising if Shelton shares her sentiment.
She was one of the only artists at the Grammy Awards who expressed disgust at Brown’s win streak there, and has even called him out personally in concert.
Clearly, Brown's fan base continues to support him, but his assault on Rihanna in 2009 - and his actions and words since then - continue to sit badly with many.
