Chris Brown used to be known - in addition to beating Rihanna to a pulp, getting into fights, pissing off neighbors and exploding at the media - for gay slurs.
Now the R&B star is singing a different, decidedly pro-gay tune!
Brown issued a series of tweets Friday that revealed his plans to release a new single on Monday in conjunction with what he calls his "Unity Campaign."
It's unclear what that is ... but here's him with a bunch of kids!
The move is unprecedented for a singer known for his hot temper and a series of controversial incidents. Think he's finally turned over a new leaf?
Either way, there's something unintentionally hilarious about it.
Genuine or not, he says he's all about the love, inspiration, and whatnot these days. Ready to let go of grudges and make peace with the haters.
#UNITY, people. It's a powerful, powerful thing. Of that there is little doubt, but how, and how seriously, is this particular messenger going to spread it?
