How much would you pay to interact with your favorite artist? It's the question of the week on social media after news about Chris Brown’s latest meet-and-greet has been making its rounds.
Per a July 2022 HotNewHipHop report, it appears that the “Breezy” songbird made a serious coin after recently charging fans $1,000 for meet-and-greet tickets. Despite the hefty price tag, fans seemingly didn’t bat an eyelash as tons of images with Chris Brown and fans have gone viral on social media.
Of course, the general consensus is that paying a grand for meet-and-greet tickets is not only steep but a total waste of money. However, many fans shared that if both parties are happy with the turnout, it’s no one's business how people spend their money to see their favorite artist. As a result, social media users have shared their sentiments via jokes and support for the star.
Despite the jokes and slander, Chris stands by his decision to charge fans $1,000 for these tickets. Not to mention, he prides himself on being an artist who actually gives back to his fans. On Aug. 1, 2022, Chris took to his Instagram Stories to speak his piece about the chatter online.
"I have the coolest fans on the planet," Chris shared. "I appreciate the f--k outta them. These are memories that will last with them forever. Unlike most of these lame a-- artists that won't even make eye contact with the people who made it possible to even have a career."
Chris concluded his message by sharing that he will always go above and beyond for his fans.
Social media users have had a field day this whole time, of course. From saying he looks like an expecting father at a baby shower to supporting the musician for agreeing to his fans' strange requests, here are the funniest and realest reactions to Chris Brown’s meet-and-greet.
