Tuesday, Aug 6, 2013 3:06PM
R&B singer Chris Brown is giving haters a day to rejoice after announcing plans to possibly step away from the music spotlight in the near future.
Chris Breezy hopped onto his Twitter page today (August 6) to dish on issues of people still judging him from a past mistake and reveal his upcoming X album could be it.
"Don't worry mainstream America.After this X album, it'll probably be my last album.," he tweeted August 6.
"Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent. I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it!" (Chris Brown's Twitter)
Brown became public enemy number one back in February 2009 after he attacked ex-girlfriend Rihanna during Grammy weekend.
The "mistake" mentioned in that tweet is, presumably, his arrest for domestic assault after attacking then-girlfriend Rihanna the night before the Grammy Awards in 2009. (It should be noted, of course, that Brown was actually 19 when that incident occurred, but math is hard. (Entertainment Weekly)
Some media outlets have speculated this as possibly being a publicity stunt.
Clearly, he doesn't think the rest of the world has, if his recent tweets are any indication. So is this a publicity stunt for his upcoming album, X, or is Brown just another in a long line of musicians who've said that they're quitting music but never actually do? Guess we'll find out when sales numbers come in for X, which has a new projected release date of Aug. 26. (USA Today)
Just yesterday, Chris Breezy showed up at a Los Angeles jail to turn himself in for a hit-and-run case.
Chris Brown pulled a fast one Monday ... turning himself in at an L.A. jail for his hit-and-run case -- a day ahead of schedule. TMZ has learned ... Brown showed up at the Van Nuys jail at around 2 PM. We're told his lawyer, Mark Geragos, engineered it all and the purpose was to make it happen without any photogs present. Brown was booked and released on his own recognizance -- no bail. We're told the whole thing took around 45 minutes. Now here's what's interesting ... Just a few hours earlier, there was a gaggle of photogs at the courthouse which is connected to the jail, because 50 Cent made a court appearance. When the cameras were gone, Chris appeared. Sneaky, Geragos. (TMZ)
