Chris Brown is planning a crazy performance for the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, according to reports. The star is up for three Grammys - Best R & B Album, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song - at the annual music extravaganza.
“Chris has been rehearsing non-stop,” a source close to the singer said. “He wants to give the audience and his fans an over top the performance. Chris has put a lot of pressure on himself to deliver, and he will deliver, he always does."
He won't be doing interviews, though ... until 2013 or later.
It was only three years ago that Brown was arrested for felony battery on his then girlfriend, Rihanna, on the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards.
"Chris is hopeful that his performance will close that chapter on his life," says the source. "He will be bringing his mom to the awards ceremony, she is his biggest fan, and he has told her he is dedicating his performance to her."
"Chris has grown tremendously as a person, and an artist from that time in his life. He's complied with all terms of his probation. He has been a model probationer, but more importantly, Chris accepted responsibility for what he did.""Chris took that experience and vowed to learn from it and become a better person, and he was thrilled and truly humbled that he was nominated for Grammys."
Rihanna is also nominated for several Grammys and will be performing with Coldplay, but don't expect the former couple to cross paths during the show.
"Rihanna and Chris' handlers will keep them apart during the ceremony, they just don't want to detract from the awards. Chris and Rihanna have absolutely been spending time together, but they keep it far from prying eyes," the insider states.
Expect the rumor mill to go ballistic regardless.
