Laurieann Gibson Wants To ‘Remake’ Chris Brown

Published: Thursday 18th Aug 2011 by Rashad

Famed choreographer Laurieann Gibson has recently found success in her BET top-rated dance competition‘Born To Dance’.  Heavy on the promo trail for the named showing, one of Gibson’s interviews recently came under fire as she cited herself as the reason for Lady Gaga‘s success.

Now (in another interview), the former ‘Fly-Girl’ has made more interesting commenets – weighing in on other celebrities, namely R&B bad boy Chris Brown.  See what the Canadian choreographer had to say about this and who made her ‘choreography wish list’ after the jump:

Via RWD:

So you’re currently judging So You Think You Can Dance, E! The Dance Scene has just finished airing and Born To Dance is just beginning on BET. How much of what is aired on the reality shows is really Laurieann?

I mean you see a hyper version of me from the 30 minutes on E! but I think the most exciting thing about Born To Dance is that you get to see absolutely who I am, why I’m doing what I do and the fact that I’m helping one girl in my dance community to make it as a dancer. I need to start supporting the dancers, this is who I am, 110% more than any other show.

You directed Keri Hilson’s video for The Way You Love Me and there was quite a lot of fuss about the sexual content in the video. What did you have to say about the negative backlash?

Keri is an incredible artist and you know I’m just quite sad that people fear what they can’t control and what they fear they can’t become and you’re on the right track when you cause that kind of emotional stir. I loved the video, I thought she looked beautiful. I didn’t write the song, I think the song was more of a deal than the video.

Are there any artists that you haven’t worked with that you would like to?

Right now, I love Adele’s album, I’d like to creative direct her tour maybe. I’m inspired by the music and the journey of an artist and the soul of an artist and challenges they face so you know, it’s like a big old connection.

Are there any artists that have found it too intense working with you?

Oh absolutely a lot of them have found me completely too intense but you know they’re not charting…

So you’re not going to drop any names?

Never would I do that…they might come back so I wouldn’t want to do that.

If you could take any artist either upcoming or established and completely reinvent them who would it be?

I think and not that anything is wrong with what he’s doing, it’s because I believe in his greatness; it would probably be Chris Brown. He’s so talented, so just choreographically and visually…well I can’t tell you because then I’ll have to kill you.

Modest much?

Your thoughts?

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with CB’s choreography. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. She already thinks she had a hand in shaping Gaga’s career because of the choreography in a video. NO, you just made up dance moves. You didn’t give that woman her talent of performing and vocals. Now she wants to ‘help’ Chris. Girl, BYE. She needs to worry about making sure that show on BET doesn’t get canceled!

    I am certainly not here for Chris Clown. But she should have said Rihanna or Lady Caca.

  9. mmh August 18, 2011

    i think many people are trying to get chris for publicity… i mean i didnt know who this woman is until today… they know that once you work with chris your name will be all over the place. but i guess its business as usual

  10. Rossie August 18, 2011

    @MMH
    she’s worked with Lady Gaga since the beginning of her career
    and also she was in “Making the band” were diddy pissed her off. and she’s worked with legends. she’s been around be this year seems like she’s pushing herself into the limelight.

    Gravity is clearly not her friend. Her face and tits are dragging to the ground. Did she not have photo approval, or a push-up bra? SMDH….

    Chris Choreography is fine, I actually think he dances too much, even on slow songs he is dancing in his videos. I think the man doesn’t know how to be still, he is super hype. He did most of the dancing in Next to you and Justin just stood there. Chris dancing is fine.
    @DANNY B The reason she didn’t say Rihanna because maybe she is a lost cause in the dancing department. Her people got her lesson last year snd she still is stiff. LOL This was too easy, you should’nt have used Rihanna, LOL.

  15. VA STAND UP!!! August 18, 2011

    Well in her defense she does seem genuinely interested in working with Chris and she didn’t bash him or his dancing, and I like how she said ‘I believe in his greatness’ (Lol). However she gets on my last damn nerves! She just takes herself so seriously and she fails to realize that NO ONE else does! I don’t understand how this chick keeps getting her own TV shows!

    Every since she was on ‘Making the Band’ you could tell she was full of herself like anyone she works with should feel honored to be in her presence! I know choreographers are supposed to be kinda tough on their dancers & push them to be their best but she is soo overly dramatic and she acts as if her choreography is so groundbreaking when its not!
    She’s so basic! I think working with Lady Gimmick kinda blew her head up too. She acts like she made Gaga! Ugh!

    Don’t even get me started on her shitty ass music videos! Keri Hilson’s ‘TWYLM” was a hot f****** mess and got slammed by everybody & their mama! Keri took a huge risk with that video and it didn’t pay off! The videos she directed for Lady Gimmick was just as shitty and also got slammed! None of her videos ever get praise, instead they get blasted! She acts as if people who don’t like her videos don’t get the ‘art’, when in fact the videos just sucked!

    I don’t know who CB’s choreographer is, I believe he works with different choregraphers for videos & tours & such, but I hope he doesn’t work with her, ESPECIALLY for a video!
    As far as female choreographers I hope he works with Fatima one day! That’s my girl!

  16. Sherry August 18, 2011

    I don’t think Breezy nor Adele need her creative input. Laurieann has been around for ages. She has more exposure with Gaga than she did with Diddy. That is a given. But it seems to be going to her head. And I wish she would quit making excuses for that horrid Keri Hilson video she directed. It was awful and had nothing but hooch popping choreography. Accept the misstep, keep it moving. From Making the Band to her own shows, she has clearly proven she can’t handle constructive criticism.

    LMAO! I know right!!! Her E! show got canceled and it didnt even last the whole season! I swear BET gives ANYBODY a show these days but I dont think her BET show is gonna last either. I honestly don’t see how anyone can watch her shows! She is sooo annoying! How the f*** does she keep getting these shows!

  18. Sherry August 18, 2011

    @Va Standup-Thank you, I so agree! She acts like she is the female Hype Williams and her videos are the best ever. She makes the worst videos and refuses to own up to her mistakes in order to improve. That’s why her and Diddy butted heads. She’s full of herself. And watching het show on E, she is highly erratic and unprofessional. She only gets shows because of her connection to Gaga. Otherwise, she’d be back choreographing Diddy and Dirty Money videos.

    Gaga stans (as a group) don’t like her and want her fired…I could care less….

  20. STR8FACTS August 18, 2011

    lol this lady is just way in over her head. honestly, I don’t think there is anything wrong with gaga stans, they have every reason to call her out. so you choreographed a video and that made lady gaga? i guess she wasn’t lady gaga before bad romance? lmao i think its funny. and chris is great at what he does, and what’s great about him is he usually does a little bit of choreographed moves in his videos and performances, but he freestyles most of the time and thats what everybody loves about him. chilee chris is #WINNING Laurie Ann’s cockiness is going to sink her ass under really quickly.

  21. teambreezy4life August 18, 2011

    boo you was wack during making the band… i never liked her after that day when she almost made brian pass cause he was dehydrated and she still wanted to dance and brian told her to f*** off. I understand your a choregrapher but you still have to respect your client

  22. Bitter b****** make me sick…. Throw up (queenbey) August 18, 2011

    This lady is full of herself……

    I thought after she almost bust her ass on national t.v @ the BET preshow, she would be more humble, I guess I was wrong….

    ———————————————————————————

    Agreed! I don’t think Laurie Ann was neccessarily using his name for publicity, I believe she really wants to work with him cause she thinks she is the s*** and that her choreography can take him to the next level. Blah!

  25. MISHKA August 18, 2011

    Can we keep it real for a sec?

    Laurie Ann is right Chris Brown is an amazing dancer on his own ( see “With you”) but when he’s performing with his dancers, I must admit the outcome is kind of all over the place. They just need some structure, or someone (else) to help them polish their moves.

    Just my opinion, so you-know-who-you-are, stay right where you at.

    Damn that natural boob promotion, fake plastic boobs may be out of control, but if your natural boobs are hideous then you need not flash them.
    Why she suddenly trying to be seen as a s*** symbol IDK, but FAIL, she may be a dancer but her body is not dancer pretty it’s dude-ish like a boy and her stomach/waist line is manly and tough.
    She’s really quite pretentious and feeling herself way too much.

    Sounds to me like yall can’t handle her. But the deal is, she’s a beast. She’s been working with Gaga for a while and the fact that she’s still a part of her creative team should tell you all something lol. She didn’t diss Chris Brown either, she could definitely bring something to the table. All those who say her BET show is a flop need to check those ratings lol.

  31. lol August 19, 2011

    Why in the f*** are Chris Brown fans talkin s*** about this woman.
    Lauryann seems to has real interest in chris Brown career. She believes in his talent and yall shade the f*** out of her. Lauryann basicly made gaga into who she is if you ask me , With out Lauryann’s dance moves and making her an avant gurd performer Gaga would be just like Katy Perry (a white bish tryn to sell dance music, when she cant even dance ) ,sure Gaga looks wierd doing some of her choreo ,but that just because Gaga is not a natural dancer. I would love for Lauryann to take some control in Chris Brown career. Make him more mainstream with more substanance. Because the Bad Boy image will enventually get old.

    ps yes Lauryann is a b**** but when you know your s*** you can be that 🙂

  32. R@@ August 19, 2011

    Okay lets gets the s*** in order LAURIE ANN GIBSON IS A BEAST…she’s SEE’s GREATNESS wonder why gaga is BIG as she is LAURIE ANN IS THE CHICK in my opinion LAURIE and CHIRS COULD DO DAMAGE on a STAGE thats something worth seeing…!!!Laurie been around for years and still the greatest…GOOGLE THIS CHICK IF NEEDED!!!! chis is great BUT LAURIE WANTS TO TAKE HIM HIGHER and he need to take that offer cuz CH…..YALL DONT UNDERSTAND WHAT I SEE in that…..! F*** YALL HATERS!!!

  33. lol August 19, 2011

    @MISHKA
    yes you always kep it 100 % 🙂
    Lauyann is a beast the movie Honey (starring Jessica Alba) was based on her life , what other choreographers in the buiz can f*** with that

  34. Antonio August 19, 2011

    Hell, somebody needs to make him over. Why not her?

  35. nice_gurl August 19, 2011

    Chris needs to focus a little bit more on vocals. Once he gets the vocals right, then he can try to add more coreography. I just don’t want him to perform and sing out of breath.

  36. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 19, 2011

    Re-invent??You mean “destroy”.This woman can touch gold and turn it into s***.People are still laughing at GaGa’s “dance routines” for the Judas performances.And that picture is NO!
    Now when it comes to Keri’s video, she is talking some real nonsense.People bashed it because they fear to become what Keri was in the video???Well, yes, most people fear to be s****, but does this “choreographer” think that the video got rejected because we cannot understand it and because it causes the fear of the unknown???SIT!The video got rejected because it sucks and the only thing that caused me fear about this video is the lame choreography.I hided under my bed for days fearing that Keri would come in my room to do that choreography!

  37. winning August 19, 2011

    chris B doesnt need a choreographer , he needs a psychiatrist

  38. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 19, 2011

    Alright, Laurianne or however her name is spelled like is a good choreographer, but you think that she made GaGa what she is today????She was hired after GaGa’s peak of buzz and most GaGa fans hate her.She has been with GaGa for very little time and if anything she has damaged her, definetely not made her.Do you remember who was the reason for that nasty BTW video that got a backlash??Do you remember who was the main reason for the EOG fiasco???I am FAR from a GaGa fan, but it’s obvious that Laurianne has NOTHING to do with GaGa’s rise.GaGa was already huge (more than she is today) when Laurianne was hired.

    Breezy is known for his dance as well as his singing. he turns out record crowds. I’m sure if she was that good he would have worked with her already.

  41. popeater August 19, 2011

    She’s worked with everyone from Janet Jackson to Lady Gaga. Clearly, she doesn’t need Chris Brown. She just said she would like to work with him.

    that’s not a good pic of her. maybe she was tired before the photoshoot.

    I was expecting team breezy to attack this b**** 😥
    Anyway, she needs to take her f****** drag queen looking ass and take some seats. Noone gives a s*** about her opinion on anyone. If anything, Madonna should have read her ass for that ridiculous comment she made about trying to make her “bitter” 🙄

  45. lola August 19, 2011

    Laurie Ann Gibson is good at what she does and is very passionate about dance, but I don’t know if she can make Chris’ moves greater than what they are. I would love to see Chris create an emotional video where he’s dancing throughout it and breaks it down… you know, like a groundbreaking video that becomes a classic and the single tops the charts worldwide.

    I can’t believe she defended that Keri Hilson video. That video was on the level of p***! It was worse than Rihanna’s nasty videos. These celebs need to stop using that “art” excuse because everything and anything is art. Poop on a wall can be considered art! Just admit that the video was slutty and degrading. How is getting on the floor, opening your legs, and jiggling your stank c****** in the camera acceptable?

    And as far as Lady Gaga goes, her moves are literally retarded. That woman cannot dance for sh*t and looks like a damn fool onstage. Laurie Ann’s choreography contributed to Lady Gaga’s weirdness, but many other things like her kooky sense of style and publicity stunts made Gaga who she is.

    BTW, that picture is disgusting! OMG, no one even bother to photoshop it?

    Read it again and WEEP! She said the GREAT & TALENTED ONE a.k.a. CHRIS BROWN!

  48. mobwife……..yeah 3x for C. Breezy August 19, 2011

    Unless I missed something Team Breezy, she didn’t say anything in this excerpt that was disparaging to Chris! I’m not a fan of her’s and God know’s I’d be the 1st to jump in her narrow strange looking behind had she ran on Chris…LOL! 🙂

    Anyway, I’m not really sure why she is out of the shadows? I guess she figures if Paula Abdula can step into the spotlight she will too?!

  49. shAnIce AmoI August 19, 2011

    who is this gibson biatch! 🙂 she cant even dance,she needs to go actully do something she’s gud at and get out the ent. biz!

  50. Joy August 19, 2011

    Laurie Ann is too much for her ownself. She isn’t the greatest and her lady gaga choreo is stagnant

    Nasty looking breast implants

  52. kianaaa13 October 20, 2011

    She needs to just blend back into the background and do what she is being paid for, choreography! No one cares what she has to say or interested in getting to know her terrible personality.
