JAY-Z

I Refuse to Clap for Chris Brown

It was the standout performance of the MTV VMAs -- Chris Brown dancing his face off -- but while everyone from Kanye to Bieber stood up and cheered ... Jay-Z refused to even crack a smile.

Of course, Jay is the man who discovered Rihanna -- and they're still VERY tight. So, was his decision to NOT clap a message to Brown?  Or is Jay simply too cool for the room?

at 1:34 he sort of in the midst of a head bob and sipping from whatever is hidden in his hand. I don't really see the big deal. Just because everyone else was "feeling" the jumping back and forth on the wire ordeal as fun doesn't mean he had to as well. For all we know he was observing from a perspective outside of being an entertainer as well. Chris Brown may be a freaking douche *hands up to that vote* and his performance didn't really insight the need to be all cheery stuff even I felt like that was an "okay he danced. He flew. Next?" It's not really a big statement. My final verdict: Jay-Z watched a performance. Then sipped his drink. Neutral ground.
