When a fan buys a Chris Brown VIP package, that fan gets what they want. At least, that’s the conclusion of new photos showing the R&B artist’s recent one-on-one interactions with female fans.
In the photos, posted to social media on Monday, Brown strikes boyfriend-style poses with a number of women. In one he stands behind a woman, drapes his arms over her shoulders and smiles at the camera, his face half buried in her hair.
In the sexiest pose, the woman bends over in front of him, sticking out her tongue and turning off the camera while Brown grabs her hips and presses his groin against her butt, biting his bottom lip.
“Chris Brown takes M&G [meet-and-greet] Pictures to another level, my husband doesn’t pay,” fan @hwloiza commented on the photos on TwitterQuickly correcting the last word to “playin”. Freudian slip perhaps?
Brown looks genuinely happy in all the photos, like he enjoys messing around with his fans. But while some called the encounters meet-and-greets, the singer asked to disagree.
In an Instagram Story the 33-year-old actor posted on Tuesday, he said he doesn’t actually do fan meet-and-greets these days, but rather offers a little wish-fulfillment for the people who support him the most. These are the folks who pay big bucks for a VIP experience that includes access to Brown. Many VIP packages are offered at Brown’s shows, but not all include artist access.
“PSA!!!! When artists (all) give concerts, they all have a so-called VIP package. I haven’t done meetings in over 7 years…” he wrote. “I have the coolest fans on the planet… I appreciate the shit from them. These are memories that will stay with them forever.”
He explained the difference between him and other artists, who he said would not even make eye contact with fans, let alone pose for photos grabbing their fans’ butts.
“I only exist because these fans saw something in me that I never thought was possible…so I give my all for my fans!!!!” Brown concluded.
Some fans reacted quite enthusiastically to the photos, according to Twitter user @TheGirlUAdore a few tweets“Oh my god why didn’t I get hit and greeted and kicked myself lol.”
“In each of the photos, he looks like he’s in a happy and healthy relationship,” user @eri_rozay wrote.
“I love him lmao, I would pass out,” @sydbaebe tweetedwhich ranks among the predominantly positive responses.
And another Twitter user shared an Instagram post last Thursday in which entertainment marketer Shane Martin wrote at length about Brown’s attitude toward his fans at a show the night before in Hartford, Conn.
“I’ve hosted hundreds and hundreds of meet and greets over the years and have never seen an artist interact with fans the way Chris Brown has. It was great!” wrote Martin.
“Typically, artists pose for the image, maybe shake a hand or two, and then say more, so the experience lasts about 20 to 30 seconds. But Chris Brown shook everyone’s hand, gave several hugs, signed several things and took a lot of very entertaining photos with each person! He actually stood there and talked to each fan for 3-4 minutes.
“He asked her name, her life and so many other questions…” Martin continued. “Everyone can have their thoughts on people, but I just wanted to share what I’ve seen behind the scenes with Chris Brown. A lot of people had fun last night.”
Chris Brown’s “One of Them Ones” tour with Lil Baby is coming to Southern California later this month with shows on August 21 at the FivePoint Amphitheater in Irvine and August 26 at the Kia Forum in Inglewood.
Then Brown’s rescheduled 2019 Indigoat Tour — starring Tory Lanez, Ty Dolla Sign, Joyner Lucas and Yella Beezy — arrives at the Crypto.com Arena in downtown LA on October 11th.
