Chris Brown's New Video, 'Turn Up The Music,' Is A Hot, Athletic Michael Jackson Tribute

Fri, February 17, 2012 4:46pm EDT by 17 Comments

Does Chris Brown make it clear that he identifies with his hero, Michael Jackson or what, in his poppy and entertaining new video? From the costumes, to the dancing, to the lighting, MJ is his spectacular inspiration.

You can watch Chris Brown’s video for his new single, Turn Up The Music, on many levels. First, his dancing is astounding ! Chris, always an amazing dancer, outdoes himself. His quick moves are awe-inspiring and he has to be the MOST athletic singer on the planet. In fact, the guy is an acrobat.

Plus his dance steps incorporate some of Michael Jackson’s most infamous moves including the crotch grab, the hat tip and more.

Secondly, his new tune is fun and danceable.

Third – watching the video is like taking a fleet-footed trip down memory lane as Brown pulls his costumes, dance moves, and scenes from infamous Jackson videos – Smooth Criminal, Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough, Bad, and, Black and White.

The fact that Michael Jackson spent much of his adult life as an “outcast,” considered a criminal by many, must be an additional source of identification for Chris, who was convicted of assaulting his girlfriend Rihanna, three years ago.

But now, he’s won a Grammy for Best R&B Album of the Year, he’s back together with Rihanna, and it looks like with this new song, he’ll have another hit on his hands.

Watch! And tell me what you think, HollywoodLifers!

For those who vote “no” in the poll clearly DID NOT watch it, they voted because they dislike him. I am not a huge fan of Chris Brown, but WOW! He really outdid himself and his dancing talent really shown through. I’m now a fan! :)

Go talk about all the other white men and priest who’s been molesting little boys for 15-20 years. In fact they were molesting little boys at the
same time Mike was being setup. (And that’s exactly what it was with documented proof!) and other white men and police knew and did nothing about it! Go talk about the white teacher who just recently was
exposed for taking pictures of his students blinded folded and hands tied
behind their backs while he masturbated infront of them, spread his semen on food and made the kids eat it. Go “screw” with him!

Mike accomplished and achieved things most of you never will. Like Whitney, mike’s legacy will be written in this history books. No one would dare say they are better than Mike but they will all say that he alone is the king who kicked open doors for generations to follow. Mikes fan’s dont care how eccentric he was. That’s the meaning of unconditional love, something many of you will never have. Mike is loved and will always be loved Literally from one side of the globe to the other.He was no child molester and that’s all we need to know! for every
person who disliked him, there are millions more who love him. And
even in death, he and Whitney are still breaking records!

Michael Jackson was found innocent on all charges and was was the greatest entertainer ever. He will never be equaled by anyone ever.

Its disgusting how pro-chris you are. Do you really believe this crap that you’re writing? I find it strange for a womans site to be so supportive of a batterer.

love that this site wrote an extremely negative article about MIA’s behavior during the superbowl, but seems completely supportive of this woman beater with a serious anger problem and entitlement issues. way to go bonnie.
