Masked Singer contestant Bobby Brown says he ‘needs to cry more’ as show ‘opened emotions’ following children’s deaths
The Masked Singer’s latest eliminated contestant, Bobby Brown, admitted he needs to “cry more” as the show “opened his emotions” following his children’s deaths.
After he was voted off last week, The Fox competition celebrated the best and most powerful performances of the season on tonight’s sing-along special, The Maskie Awards.
Host Nick Cannon handed out several awards tonight but it was Bobby’s acceptance speech that stood out the most.
The My Prerogative singer – who performed during season five as The Crab – won the Maskie Awards for Most Powerful Masked Journey.
During his backstage never-before-seen interview, Bobby, 52, explained how the show has had a deep lasting impact on him.
“I’m the king of holding my feelings inside so this was a great way of expressing myself,” he said.
The hitmaker continued: “I’ve learned through this if I need to cry, I should just cry instead of keeping it in.
“So I suspect I’ll have a big long cry soon because of this show. Go forward. Don’t take no steps back.
“Always take steps forward. Life is yours, don’t waste it,” he encouraged.
Last week, the rapper and dancer got emotional on stage following his elimination over the death of his late son and daughter.
The ex-husband of music legend Whitney Houston said: “As everybody knows, I lost my two children.
“I lost my daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and I lost my son just recently, Bobby Jr. They were a part of everything that I do this for.
“I do this for my kids and I just felt it was essential that I come out here and do it for my little ones.
“My five-year-old, my four-year-old, my 11-year-old… To let them see their dad is still kicking.”
His son, Bobby Brown Jr., was sadly found dead at 28-years-old on November 18, 2020.
The official report, exclusively obtained by The Sun, showed he had a history of alcohol and drug use and his death was ruled as accidental.
Meanwhile, the singer’s daughter Bobbi Kristina – who he shared with Whitney – tragically passed away at the age of 22 in 2015 when she was found unresponsive in a bath.
Whitney passed away in 2012 at the age of 48 in an eerily similar way to her daughter – with her cause of death being ruled a “drowning” after also being found unresponsive in a tub.
After spending weeks on a coma, she was declared dead in a hospice and a mixed of substances were found in her system.
Her official cause of death was cited as an “underlying cause” due to “immersion associated with drug intoxication.”
At the time, officials released a statement which read: “Death was clearly not due to natural causes.
“But the medical examiner has not been able to determine whether death was due to intentional or accidental causes, and has therefore classified the manner of death as undetermined.”

Bobby also has three younger children, whom he referred to while on The Masked Singer tonight.
After being married to the I Will Always Love You superstar from 1992-2007, he later married TV producer Alicia Etheredge in 2012.
He shares son Cassius, 11, as well as daughters Hendrix, 4, and Bodhi, 5, with his second wife.
