JAY-Z refuses to clap for Chris Brown

It was the standout performance of the MTV VMAs — Chris Brown dancing his face off — but while everyone from Kanye to Bieber stood up and cheered … Jay-Z refused to even crack a smile.

Of course, Jay is the man who discovered Rihanna — and they are still very tight. So, was his decision to not clap a message to Brown? Or is Jay simply too cool for the room?
