Chris Brown will be undergoing a major media makeover in 2012.

A big part of that strategy: Exposing the star to far less of it.

According to his manager Tina Davis, Breezy won’t be allowed to do any interviews for the rest of 2012, a measure intended to protect the gaffe-prone singer from himself.

The strategy had actually been set “a while back,” Davis said.

“We’re not trying to be rude, selfish or disrespectful to anyone in any way. If people are going to judge anything, judge him for his talent," Davis told EW.

"He signed up to sing and entertain. Not to talk about his personal life.”

From a business and personal standpoint, it actually makes sense.

The media hounds Chris about a mistake he made nearly three years ago. He takes the bait and flies off the handle. An endless cycle and a self-fulfilling prophecy.

If Brown wants people to focus on his talent, the best way to do that is to live a low-profile life off the stage and kill it in concert. This way he can do so.

Besides, Rihanna and Chris Brown's Tweets will still generate plenty of buzz.

Will Rihanna and Chris Brown do the unthinkable?

Nearly three years after the infamous assault that ended their relationship and nearly put him in jail, the two are working toward getting back together, according one of the most prolific and unreliable celebrity news sources around! That's crazy!

Chris Brown and Rihanna's Tweets this week got people talking, and MediaTakeOut (dot) com has apparently "been hearing reports for some time" that Rihanna and Brown are working on "RECONCILIATION" (their word, and unnecessary capitals).

SO is it happening or not?

Rihanna and Chris

According to the celebrity gossip site, a person close to Chris Brown says he'd like nothing more than to get back with her. But since the "incident" Chris felt that he'd destroyed any and all chances of a relationship with his "soul mate."

So he stayed away from her, by law, at her request.

But now things have changed. Rihanna and Chris are speaking to each other on the phone, exchanging IMs and text messages to boot. Insanity!

She's in Barbados right now (check out these bikini photos!) but they reportedly plan to meet up when Rihanna returns to Los Angeles next week.

Chris is said to be ecstatic, but Jay Z and Rihanna's managers are reportedly furious that they're back on speaking terms and may reconcile?

Will they? Is any or all of this true? Stay tuned.

VOTE: Should Rih and Chris date again?

Chris Brown. Rihanna.

Fairly or not, these two music stars will be forever linked by a hot romance that ended in a highly publicized 2009 assault that Chris later pleaded guilty to.

In the nearly three years since, regardless of what the public thinks, the two are on good terms - or at least neutral terms - and putting it behind them.

Both have nothing but supportive words, seeking to downplay the incident and move on. But has the tumultuous relationship now struck up again?

Chris and Rihanna

Yesterday, Breezy posted, "Love U more than u know!"

Two minutes later, Ri said, "I'll always love you #1love."

Coincidence? Maybe, but two minutes later?

Rihanna has defended why she even follows Brown on Twitter and has shared that she's still a "fan" of his and "excited" for his comeback, which we can see.

But it makes you wonder. Are they rekindling a romance or are they just unrelated? If they were directed at someone else, why not Tweet at them? So odd.

Then there's this:

Earlier, Brown's mom tweeted, "HELLO LADY I MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU!!!!! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!!" Rihanna tweeted shortly after, "Miss+Love u 2"

Pitbull likes to call himself Mr. Worldwide. Fittingly, Chris Brown travels the globe with the rapper in the video for his latest single, “International Love.”

“It’s all about the music being global, the universal language,” Pitbull says, “and it goes to show no matter what language you may speak, you speak music.”

Director David Rousseau adds: “The is about the global presence of Mr. Worldwide, how he went from Mr. 305 to being a global phenomenon. Now the world is his stage.”

Deep stuff. Check out "International Love" below and see if it holds a candle to Pit's mega-hit collaborations "On the Floor" and "Give Me Everything" ...

Chris Brown knows how to put on a show.

Love him or hate him, guy is a performer. At the 2011 American Music Awards on Sunday, Brown dressed in a white T-shirt and jeans and began his performance with his emotional slow jam "All Back" alongside his backing band.

With little accompaniment, the singer displayed unusually raw vocals:

Then his turn on stage cranked up several notches for a rendition of "Say It With Me," showcasing Chris' dance moves. Haters are always gonna hate regardless, but his performances of both songs are sure to win raves from Team Breezy.

Is Chris Brown the man gettin' down and freaky with Draya Michele in a new sex tape that's making the Internet rounds? Or is it some Breezy impostor?

Brown's rep says the person who stars in a new XXX video being shopped around L.A. is definitely not Chris, despite salacious reports to the contrary.

According to MediaTakeOut, the mystery seller wants $50,000 in exchange for footage which allegedly features Brown and the Basketball Wives star.

Draya Michele, as you can see, is not shy. But did she freak with Breezy?

MediaTakeOut claims they have seen the alleged Chris Brown sex tape, but sadly, were forced to pass on the thing because it was out of their price range.

Nevertheless, the singer's rep says "The report is absolutely not true."

A second source in Brown's camp smells a conspiracy, in fact.

"Doesn't it seem like a coincidence that every time Chris has a major performance or event on the horizon, some fake story like this breaks?" he asked.

It's true. These stories do seem to follow Chris Brown wherever he goes ... though he can take responsibility for some of that with his well-documented actions.

Chris Brown has thrown in the proverbial towel.

The singer moved out of the West Hollywood condo in which he was at war with his fellow condo owners, many of whom termed him the neighbor from hell.

Brown's neighbors had complained bitterly that he parked in handicapped spots, played music at ear-shattering levels at all hours, raced dogs in the halls, etc.

He was also accused of vandalism at one point.

Angry Chris Brown Picture

Chris Brown. So maligned.

Brown denied committing any of those misdeeds and even got the majority of those "handicapped" parking tickets thrown out, as the spots were deeded to him.

Still, he peaced a little while ago, and is no longer living in the unit. Chris has not sold the condo, however, and when he plans to (if at all) remains unclear.

Party at the next owners association meeting?

It goes without saying that the Internets are an amazing place.

Where else can you find a video of Chris Brown's "Look At Me Now," drawn in MS Paint, Windows 3.0 style, with a near-literal interpretation of the lyrics?

They say everything old is new again. If that's true, CB should consider enlisting this YouTube artiste for his next video. Team Breezy would approve.

If only they had reenacted Chris Brown's Halloween costume ...

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris is in love with Chris Brown, and the singer was more than willing to return the love last night at his L.A. concert.

Chris, a devout fan of the King of Pop, made sure his 13-year-old daughter got nothing short of the VIP  treatment when she came to see him live.

Once Chris learned Jackson would be attending, he invited Paris to the pre-show soundcheck, where he greeted her with a giant, friendly hug.

Nice to see Chris hook up one of his biggest fans.

After the warm up and meeting Chris, Paris Jackson made her way to her front row seat with her friends and rocked out to the sold-out show.

A ton of other stars were on hand to watch Brown rock the house, including Jamie Foxx, Damon Wayans, Sean Kingston and Kendall Jenner.

Safe to say Team Breezy was in the house.

It's good to be Chris Brown right now.

Team Breezy has his back. Karrueche Tran is not pregnant. Even Rihanna says she's a fan. And the BET Hip Hop Awards just bestowed three honors upon him.

Most notably, Chris won Best Hip-Hop Video for "Look at Me Now." Brown was on tour and not present, but Tweeted: "Thank you BET but most of all TeamBreezy!"

Breezy Live

The show, hosted by Mike Epps and MC'd by Da Brat (yep, she's still around) opened up with a performance by T.I. (no word if the party bus took him there).

Wiz Khalifa, Heavy D and Tyrese, Rick Ross and the Maybach Music Group, Big Sean and even DMX alongside Swizz Beatz hit the stage and rocked the crowd.

Lupe Fiasco also took the mic and gave a political performance (big surprise) with a mysteriously masked female vocalist who turned out to be ... Erykah Badu.
