Brandy’s music never stopped topping charts, but even while her music was making waves, Brandy continued to tackle her acting career. Her sitcom Moesha, held down primetime for six seasons, and still has a cult following. While still filming Moesha Brandy even managed to land a role in the I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. With all of her success as an actress Brandy has always returned to her first love and she has never disappointed her fans with her music.
After Brandy’s first two successful albums, her music career seemed to plummet but she continued to stay relevant in the public eye, starring in her own reality shows and appearing on her brother Ray J’s shows as well. Finally Brandy settled into her role as Chardonnay on the hit sitcom “The Game,” for 5 long seasons Brandy held down her role on the show, many actually believe that Brandy singlehandedly saved the show from early cancellation.
Most recently, Brandy is fresh off of her Broadway debut as Roxy Heart, in the musical Chicago. It comes as no surprise that Brandy impressed at every show during her run on Broadway, the reviews were through the roof, and everyone wanted more of Brandy as Roxy. Now that Brandy is leaving the big stage, she is enjoying her time in the big city, and also living a the common folk. Apparently, Brandy is a little too common for New York because this week she is making the news after an impromptu city subway performance got less than a standing ovation.
Clearly, New Yorkers are beyond over random strangers force feeding them performances on the subway, after all it only happens every day. We saw a similar situation when Keanu Reeves selflessly offered a woman his seat on the subway (in plain clothes) and didn’t even get so much as a “thank you,” nobody seemed to notice or even care that it was him. Even the person that filmed the entire interaction, cared more about getting a good video than and autograph.
Brandy’s video has gone viral, we follow her as she boards a train in glasses and a head wrap and begins sing a strong rendition of “Home,” after singing the first few lines she she realizes that not one person “responded.” In true Brandy style she threw on the theatrics and pretended to be offended that she didn’t get a reaction, she even asked a rider what he thought, to that he said “this is a cold city, we’ve seen this a million times, you have to do something different.” Brandy was a good sport about the situation, but even for her it had to hurt (just a little) to get ignored after singing her heart out.
