Jay-Z Not Feeling
The Love?

Chris Brown gave an amazing performance at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards and got the entire star-studded crowd dancing and cheering. One person that didn’t seem impressed? Jay-Z!

Chris Brown danced, jumped, flipped and even flew over the audience in his performance at last night's MTV Video Music Awards. As the cameras panned into the audience, celebrities like Justin Bieber, Drake and Kanye West stood and clapped as Brown danced his way through a mash-up of songs including Yeah 3X, Beautiful People, Protect Ya Neck and Smells Like Teen Spirit.

Jay-Z during Chris Brown's perfommance at VMAs

Kanye and Jay-Z sat next to each other during the VMA's, and as Kanye stood, clapped and cheered during Brown's performance, Jay-Z stayed sitting with a drink in his hand, not smiling and not clapping.

Was this intentional – or was Jay-Z feeling nervous about the announcement of his baby news with Beyonce? Chris Brown has struggled to come back since 2009 when he pleaded guilty to felony assault against his girlfriend at the time, Rihanna. His album F.A.M.E. has done really well and fans may have forgiven him... but has Jay-Z?

JayZ signed Rihanna when she was only 16 to his label and took her under his wing. In fact, he said Brown was a "walking dead man" after the assault.

Jay-Z wasn't the only one that wasn't giving props to Chris Brown's performance – Perez Hilton called him out via twitter for reportedly lip syncing. "If you're gonna make it all about the dancing, then GO FOR IT. But don't insult the viewer and have a microphone and pretend to sing! #Sucks," Perez Hilton tweeted. "@Chris Brown Don't even bother with the microphone next time! #Weak"

Watch Chris Brown's VMA performance and Jay-Z's reaction and tell us what you think! (He may have nodded slightly at the end of the performance):

I love Chris n I've forgiven him, he has talent let's not kill that bc of ONE mistake. Like noone ever made a mistake before! Tomorrow, who knows what mistake JayZ will make? Live n let live!

shannon September 04, 2011 | 5:00 PM

Chris Brown is a disgusting excuse for a human being. No mater what your thoughts on Rihanna there is no excuse for domestic violence. The fact that you idiots buy Chris' records after what he did is even more disturbing. How can anyone support a vicious thug like that?

rellej September 03, 2011 | 11:11 AM

Hold on Chris Brown CAN sing. U gotta think about stuff like this HE HAS A TOUR COMING UP. && HE WAS DOING A LOT OF DANCING. would u sing n dance throughot your whole performance.? no. So hush up. Stop hating. Jay Z get your rap game back up. N stop hating.

Carol September 02, 2011 | 11:12 AM

Chris was great best performance of the VMA's he's so talented and gifted . Jay Z is not talented and he's not that great of a rapper so who cares how he feels

Mika August 31, 2011 | 8:59 PM

OKAY PEOPLE I KNOW WHAT CHRIS DID WAS WRONG BUT IF RIHANNA CAN 4GIVE THEN ALL'S FORGIVEN RIGHT?I MEAN PEOPLE STILL TRIPPIN ON THAT BUT WHAT ABOUT WHEN JAY-Z HIT THAT WOMAN OVER THE HEAD WITH A CHAMPAYNE BOTTLE AIN'T NOBODY SAY A ---- THING HE'S A ---- HIPOCRIT.

SRod17 August 31, 2011 | 9:51 AM

Did anyone notice that Kanye was being sarcastic with his clapping and stuff?

Jade August 30, 2011 | 3:49 PM

Chris Brown's performance was lackluster. He spent more time in the air than actual performing...lip synced the entire performance. Beyonce with her baby bump had more movement than him AND she sang and sounded awesome... I expected a performance equal or better than the his time on SNL. DISAPPOINTED.

malsings07 August 30, 2011 | 8:35 AM

I'm just glad Kanye did'nt run up on stage and make a fool of himself! maybe Jay-Z was just a lil nervous he seems preoccupied. Chris Brown was just trying to perform worst stuff has happened in the industry not good what he did, but no one was killed either.

juliejervis August 30, 2011 | 7:49 AM

How different is this from verbal abuse to a female if all rappers (Jay z) Was teaching younger boys like chris brown to respect woman from the get go Then we all could be cheering Chris made a big mistake but that should not Be a learning experience for him I'm sure he won't hit another woman As long as he live god is a forgiving god let's pray more an be godlike.

Taylor Marie August 30, 2011 | 7:40 AM

How can Jay-z be made about CB beating on Rihanna when he got caught on camera hitting a female a couple of years ago? But anyways, the media needs to leave CB alone. He made a mistake but it is to be expect since he is only human. Also, his music has NOTHING to do with his personal life. If we want to start boycotting people's music based on their personal life than that means we would have to stop listening to a lot of our favorite artists since a lot of these people do a lot of unethical/immoral stuff.

Mohini52 August 30, 2011 | 7:37 AM

I would imagine it would be pretty hard for Chris Brown to perform the dance steps he performed, if that's what they are calling that these days, and sing in his own voice without it sounding terrible. Don't think anyone should criticize him for it. That being said, I think Chris Brown is nothing more than a punk with a huge ego and I hate his music. I don't think Chris Brown probably gives a crap about what Jayz thinks. It's about the MONEY HONEY and Chris does have his share of the fan base. JayZ just behaved like a punk himself. Actually they all act like a bunch of hooligans. Best performance of the night was NeYo although we could have done with a little less humping and less skin. I wish Rhianna would have been there. That's who I would like to have seen and heard sing. Hopefully Chris has learned a lesson and won't be hitting women anymore. He might find himself behind bars for a few years if he tries that again. Come on people. Forgive the guy. At least give him another chance.

guest August 30, 2011 | 6:52 AM

@RIfan she had a black eye. she was not severly beaten, she was not disfigured and she was not beaten near death. Stop exaggerating what she sustained. What about what Rihanna did to her brother Rorey? Smashed a glass bottle in his face and he is permanently disfigured because of her. Yet you still support a violent crazed . Not to mention the countless violent outbursts she has had at family gatherings and the fact that she used to physically abuse her little brothers on almost a daily basis. Even her father and her own brother say she's crazy. She also admitted to abusing chris numerous times and on that occasion. So please shut up because Rihanna is no saint. We are no saints either we are all sinners so if we make a mistake or make a bad judgement call should we all not be forgiven? If everyone judged everyone over mistakes, lies, disrespect, etc... nobody would love and nobody would have friends.

Mike Abe August 30, 2011 | 6:22 AM

My hunch is that they will be back together sometime soon or later, then Jay Z shall be left to hang dry
