Love Him or Hate Him, Chris Brown Is a Star

Between The Sheets Tour feat. Chris Brown & Tyga Toyota Center March 16, 2015

Chris Brown, love him or hate him, is a star.

I once tried to argue this with a few people, but ultimately settled with facts. He's truly the last of a dying breed, a child dance prodigy whose fan base has grown with him despite every pitfall he's hit.

His headlining date at Toyota Center should have happened a month ago but in true Brown fashion, the singer was forced to reschedule in order to complete community service for an assault conviction. Him rescheduling ultimately left Trey Songz off Monday night's Houston date, which meant every woman who came to Toyota Center was his for the picking.
