Brandy humiliated by playing to crowd of just 40 people in 90,000 capacity stadium
Perth Now ^ | 8/22/13

DID Brandy play to a stadium of 89,960 empty seats?

That's what the Twitterverse is saying after reports the singer performed to just 40 people in a 90,000 capacity arena at the Mandela Sports and Culture Day in South Africa on Saturday.

The American R&B star was the surprise guest at the FNB stadium in Soweto - the only problem was that no-one knew she was playing.

Tens of thousands of people had therefore left the arena before she arrived on stage.

"Brandy [just] performed to an empty stadium. With the stadium lights on," tweeted South African musician, Kabomo.

"People didn't know there was a concert after the games. No one knew Brandy was around. Maybe a 40 people audience ... She sulked after two songs and walked off.

Fail. It would have been a feather in her cap if she would have done her entire set.

Time to change careers. She’s a good actress though.

Yup, I’d have poked fun at myself and gone through with the whole show.

The news of the event would be very different today had she done that.

She’s very cute!
I didn’t know who she was...lol
But I don’t think I’m in her targeted audience.

Now that’s just a heart breaking story.

Never heard of this bimbo. Assuming she is a supporter of the Jug-Earred Bolshevik now occupying the White House, then I am elated with her lousy reception.

And Brandy, look on the bright side: if you got out of Soweto without being “necklaced” then you had a pretty good day.

I play in rock and jazz bands.

I’d be thrilled if 40 persons (other than family members) showed up to one of my gigs.

She was on Dancing with the Stars when Bristol Palin was. She came in 4th after Bristol and was really ugly about it.
Karma.

If the concert had been promoted more widely, the crowd would have swelled to at least 50.

Can someone buy that poor girl some pants. Or at least a short skirt so we can see the rest of her legs.

What would happen if a South African performer no one had heard of here played after a Bengals-Steelers game and for which there had been zero advertising? You've already sold out the stadium for football fans, many of whom want to get out of town for a four hour drive and they aren't going to stick around. Even if she had fans here, they probably wouldn't have been able to buy tickets to the football game and sat through it just to see her.

I was once scheduled to teach a seminar for 100+ people.

Two showed up. So we sat down at a table and turned the seminar into a discussion about their particular issues. Went very well and I think the two who actually showed up got their money’s worth and then some.

She shouldn’t have sung one song let alone the two songs she did. Obviously the organizers failed - not her.

Her eyes could steal a sailor from the sea.

I’ve thrown out jeans with less holes.

You’d think a purse that expensive would at least have a zipper. It’s screaming for a pickpocket.

I think those are new pants she is wearing. You pay a little more for that weathered and worn look.

That is because you have class.

What this woman did was disgraceful - she walked out on an audience. Since her act wasn’t advertised, very few were aware she would be performing. It really doesn’t matter the size of the audience, they deserve to be respected. Brandy let her ego get the better of herself.

As a performer that is what performers do: they perform. Whether the audience is huge or small, or even nonexistent doesn’t matter. She should have put her heart and soul into performing.

Actually its because I'm old, fat, male, ugly, and have little talent. But hey...

Yeah, well I’m the same as you except for female. Being courteous knows no age limit or beauty restrictions.

Brandy did not do herself proud walking offstage like that.
