Chris Brown is talking retirement at the age of 24, and it all boils down to fame and how he believes he's being treated by the media and public at large.
“Don’t worry mainstream America," the R&B singer Tweeted.
"After this X album, it’ll probably be my last album.”
Brown then tweeted, “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' declarations came hours after he turned himself into jail in connection with the hit-and-run incident this spring that may cost him his probation.
He was booked but released on his own recognizance (below).
Whether Chris Brown actually stops making music or is serious about retiring remains to be seen, given his age, fan base and huge success thus far.
He's clearly upset that his beating of Rihanna is what he's most known for (in his eyes), but can he really expect otherwise? Or blame people?
Forgiveness is one thing. Rihanna clearly has, and most if not all of his fans have done the same. We all regret things and make mistakes in life.
Forgetting is another story, however. Especially when one acts like a hothead and invites that kind of scrutiny with combative, even violent behavior.
Guy is in trouble with the law seemingly all the time too (see below), which is not entirely his fault, but is at least partially preventable at the same time.
Take responsibility, Chris, and people will cut you slack.
