Anger at Brown's Grammy award show

IF Chris Brown thought his rehabilitation was complete after appearing at the Grammy awards, he was wrong.

Country star Miranda Lambert has questioned why the controversial R&B star was allowed to perform at the show.

"He beat on a girl . . not cool that we act like that didn't happen," she said

Brown beat up his then girlfriend, singer Rihanna (pictured left at the Grammys this week), the night before the Grammys in 2009.

He pleaded guilty to an assault charge and was sentenced to five years' probation and six months of community service.

Lambert joined others who questioned the move on social networks, suggesting Brown listen to her song Gunpowder & Lead, about avenging domestic violence, and "be put back in his place. Not at the Grammys".

She attended Sunday's Grammys in Los Angeles with her husband Blake Shelton, who was a double nominee.
