Though the image of clean-cut Miranda Lambert sitting next to the scepter-carrying Lady Gaga at the Grammys was strange enough, we can say one thing: At least Lambert wasn’t seated next to Chris Brown. Since watching Brown perform and pick up a trophy at the Grammys Sunday, the country star has taken it upon herself to jumpstart a feud with Brown, or publicly condemn domestic violence, depending on your view.
Lambert began slamming the “Look At Me Now” singer — who won a Grammy for Best R&B Album for his release F.A.M.E. — at the ceremony Sunday, tweeting, “I don’t get it. He beat on a girl,” referring to Brown’s infamous felony assault of ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. And it seems Lambert has only continued her digs on Brown, bringing up the singer at a concert at the University of Massachusetts Thursday. Lambert produced a poster for audiences reading “Take Notes Chris Brown” just prior to her performance of “Gunpowder and Lead.” The subject of the tune? A woman who decides to kill her abusive husband.
Said Lambert after showing the poster to her fans: “Get a good picture now, put it on Twitter … I’ve been in a world of hurt with Chris Brown fans lately … but see, I just have to speak my mind because where I come from, beating up on a woman is never okay.” She continued: “So that’s why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun.” (See video of the moment embedded after the jump.)

Glad that someone is trying to convince women to stop asking Chris Brown to beat them, or just another annoying celebrity feud?
