So that first part was, um, weird.
Chris Martin and Jay-Z may be homies but I'm not sure what that particular bit of soft rock was missing was a rhyme about dead rappers, Jesus, Judas, and Bobby Brown. But Brown's probably psyched that he got a shout out on the heels of Whitney's big moment.
On a side note is periwinkle officially a rock 'n roll color and why does he have a piece of carpet fringe attached to his jacket?
