Kelly Rowland is not here for the naysayers.

The songstress received some backlash for defending Chris Brown American Music Awards over the weekend. TMZ stopped Kelly and asked about that now viral moment. She says Chris Brown simply deserves some grace. “I believe that grace is very real, and we all need a dose of it,” Rowland explains. 

She continued, “and before we point fingers at anybody, we should realize how grateful we are for every moment that we get…I just think that it’s important to be human. We are humans.” She was then asked if she feels Brown needs to be forgiven for the things that he has done, she added, “you know what, we all need to be forgiven for anything we could be doing, anything we could be thinking, we all come up short in some sort of way and grace is real, and we are humans, and everyone deserves grace period.” 

We previously reported that during the awards show Kelly quickly told an audience member to “chill out” as they began to get rowdy while she was presenting CB with an award. “But I wanted to tell Chris, thank you so much for making great R&B music. And I want to tell him thank you for being an incredible performer. I’ll take this award, bring it to you. I love you. Congratulations. And congratulations to all the nominees in this category.”
