So I caught the Bow Wow and Chris Brown (read: Chris Brown) concert at Madison Square Garden Jan. 17. This marks the umpteenth urban teen tour I've seen in my 21 years on this planet, counting Scream tours 1-758. I thought Chrissy and Bow were both headliners but by the looks of things, this show was EXCLUSIVEly for Chris Brown. Bow Wow didn't even have a full set! Big departure from his previous tours where he had all sorts of pyrotechnics, dancers, and was even suspended in midair for a portion of his set. I could not find one fan with a Bow Wow shirt on, and I looked hard; this concert was all about C. Brizzle. Looks like 20 is old these days.
50 Cent, Omarion and Diddy made guest appearances. Lil Mama, Soulja Boy and Sean Kingston were also on the bill. Can't say I appreciated Omarion's skinny jeans. Contrary to what he said in the December 2007 issue of Vibe , I really don't think they do much to accentuate his shape. Does he have womanly curves or something? Eww.
I also didn't appeciate Soulja Boy getting his under aged freak on on the stage. Don't these people know the audience is made up of thirteen year-olds? Why do I have to come out and be somebody's mama?
(pardon this poor picture...check the youtube link)
Randomness: Why did the chick sitting next to me at the concert pull out her cell phone and show me a picture of her flaming back up dancer boyfriend. She was like, "My boyfriend is a dancer for Lil Mama. He got me these tickets." I was like, "Who are you?" Seriously man, don't come at me (or anyone else) with that nonsense. Unless homegirl was giving me an invite backstage, what was she talking to me for?
