Chris Brown Slammed by Chrissy Teigen, Pink for Lip-Syncing at Billboard Awards
Chrissy Teigen and Pink are definitely not on Team Breezy.
Following Chris Brown's lip-synced Billboards Awards performance Sunday evening, the stars took to Twitter to criticize his canned routine of his new single, "Turn Up the Music."
"One day if I lip-sync, I hope I do it as well as him," Pink, 32, tweeted.
John Legend's fiancee Chrissy Teigen didn't hold back either. "Live singing is a helluva thing," she opined.

Brown's diehard fans (who refer to themselves as Team Breezy) didn't take too kindly to Teigen's commentary. The model, 26, responded to some of the vitriol lobbed her way from Team Breezy's most ardent members.
"I've had comments ranging from 'Kill yourself you stupid ho,' to . . . 'Get a f---ing job,'" Teigen revealed, adding that her fiance "has gotten numerous comments about him needing to 'leash' me or 'control me.' From women. Please stop this. What are you even doing this for? Some good music and dancing? Good God. Do better."
Though he was initially shunned by fans and fellow performers alike following his violent 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna, three years later, Brown, 23, now has plenty of defenders in the industry. His latest ally? British pop star Cheryl Cole, who opened up to radio host Alex James earlier this week about the public's opinion of the "Kiss Kiss" singer.
"I think it's about time we all [forgave him], if I'm completely honest," Cole, 28, said of Brown. "I think it's time we all moved on. That guy is talented as hell."
