Washington (ANI): Singer Chris Brown has denied that he insulted fellow musician Jay-Z, saying his online comments were blown 'out of proportion'. The R&B star wrote the word 'cornball' on his Twitter page as Jay-Z was honoured with the Best Male Hip-Hop Artist trophy at the recent American Music Awards (AMAs).
Brown, who later deleted the message, said he was shocked to read the papers claiming he insulted the hip-hop mogul. "My Twitter didn"t get hacked, people blew it out of proportion," Contactmusic quoted him as telling US radio station Sirius Satellite Radio.
“I was also commenting on certain things going on the AMAs but I was still Tweeting randomly about what was going on. Everybody was like 'Oh he"s making an excuse.' I just said 'cornball.' I wasn't talking about homie (Jay-Z) at all.
"At that moment, I started seeing the comments, 'Oh you talking about Jay? You talking about Jay?' I was like hell nah, then I said let me delete this before this gets out proportion. I don"t need no problems right now, I don"t need no more people cussing me out. They blew it up and I was like man, whatever," he added.
