Talk about embarrassing!

Brandy took a recent ride on a New York City subway train where she decided to generously offer a free performance for her fellow riders. What Brandy didn't take into account is that the last thing any New Yorker wants is to have their commute interrupted by yet another busker.

After belting out a ballad, the somewhat incognito singer looked to the other passengers for feedback. Instead, she got nothing but crickets and awkward attempts at people trying to avoid eye contact.

"What ya'll thought of that? Ya'll thought that was cool?" Brandy asked. "Hello? Nobody heard me singing? Nobody cares?"

One rider did offer Brandy a few words of encouragement — along with some tough love. "We've seen this a million times. You've got to do something different," he explained to the Grammy winner.
