Bobby Brown found starring on “The Masked Singer” “theraputic” after suffering the loss of two of his children in recent years.
“I did have so much fun, and it wasn’t about a competition to me,” Brown, 52, tells PEOPLE. “It was about strictly having fun. Being able to perform as the Crab really, really, really made me feel good.”
However, the “My Prerogative” singer did struggle under the costume a bit. Brown opened up on Wednesday’s episode about feeling claustrophobic inside the crustacean outfit, so much so that two weeks earlier, he walked off stage proclaiming, “I gotta take this off.”
“It was restrictive,” Brown admits. “It was hard to move, it’s hard to breathe, but the costume was so well put together.”
The father of sons Landon, 35, and Cassius, 11, and daughters La’Princa, 31, Bodhi, 5, and Hendrix, 4, recalls his emotional first performance, what his kids thought of Crab and the panelists’ guess he found funniest.
Bobby and wife Alicia Etheredge have watched every episode of the show with their young children, Cassius, 11, Bodhi, five, and four-year-old Hendrix, and despite his efforts to put them off the scent, they knew he was the star behind the crustacean costume.
