New York rapper/ “America’s Best Dance Crew” judge [artist id="2514735"]Lil Mama[/artist], who collaborated with Chris Brown on her song “Shawty Get Loose,” spoke with MTV News this week about the singer’s alleged [news id="1606426"]altercation with Rihanna[/news].
“I haven’t spoken to [artist id="1961441"]Chris Brown[/artist] in a while,” she said. “Was I surprised [about what happened]? [I was] very surprised to hear how people went about speaking on what happened.”
She said she was most confounded by the way people were commenting on the incident before details — which still have not been fully revealed — had emerged. “[I was] very surprised because there were allegations of Chris Brown and Rihanna having a fight and everyone just went crazy — the media, his fans, her fans. I mean, everybody just lost their minds,” she said. “Nobody knows what happens still to this day, but everybody’s talking. I don’t understand that.”
Despite Brown’s ongoing legal troubles and the backlash against him in the wake of the incident, Lil Mama said she would work with him again.
“I would definitely record a song or work with Chris Brown at this very moment, I would. That’s me.”
She added that she still “respects [him] as an artist and I do not know what he’s done in his personal life. I’ve heard allegations. I’ve seen pictures that might be false, that might be true.
“I have not heard from Rihanna,” she continued. “I see her in the media, taking pictures, going to events and living her life as she does normally, so I’m still confused. I don’t know what’s going on.”
Lil Mama did have a message for the pair. “I wish them both the best of luck. I wish them both all of the success in the world, which they deserve,” she said. “As far as the way I feel about it, it’s very confusing.”
