Chris Brown ‘threatens’ to quit music, says his next album will be his last

This is SO SAD, y’all. Poor little baby Chris Brown thinks that “mainstream America” isn’t interested in his music. Sucky baby Breezy got on Twitter yesterday and whined about how his new album, X, will likely be his last. Because of America. Because no one will let go of a “mistake” he made when he was 18 years old. Because he doesn’t want to be famous for nearly killing his girlfriend. He wants to be famous for his music. Poor, poor sucky baby.

[From Chris Brown’s Twitter]

In case you can’t see that, he writes: “Don’t worry mainstream America.After this X album, it’ll probably be my last album. 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!” Don’t worry, Mainstream America. Chris Brown is cool and he’s totally over how you won’t let it go that he should be in jail right now. He’s over it. He’s over the fact that you can’t recognize that he needed to be forgiven immediately following his attempted murder of his then-girlfriend. He doesn’t want to be famous for being the dude who beat the hell out of Rihanna for peeping his phone. GAWD, AMERICA. WHY CAN’T YOU LET BREEZY BE GREAT?!

So, obviously, I think we can safely say that this was probably just a temporary hissy fit from the violent, tantrumy baby known as Chris Brown. He won’t quit the music industry. Not when there are so many people bending over backwards to give him a chance. Not when he has insane fans who tweet terrible, terrible things about his violent assault on Rihanna. Not when he’s rewarded with Grammys and other awards. Not when he’s still selling albums, although his numbers tanked on his last album… so maybe that’s the REAL reason why Chris is “quitting”.

    LOVE these comments!!!

  10. DreamyK says:

    Don’t tease us so, Chris. We should be so lucky.

    Also, it wasn’t a “mistake” it was felony assault you asswipe.

  11. QQ says:

    Leave then, Motherf*ker! We can hardly wait!

  12. Kaye says:

    And the people said, “Amen.”

  13. Jayna says:

    Whiney little boy. He and Kanye, it’s hard to pick who whines the most for such supposed tough guys.

  14. pao la says:

    Can’t he go away any sooner?

  15. Assistant Rachel says:

    Please do. No one will miss you!

  16. Dawn says:

    Talk is cheap! He isn’t ready to leave music because if he does he loses more than money and I do believe this guy is smart enough to know it. Just more talk to try and get more sales for his upcoming album and nothing more.

  17. Viv says:

    Halleluja. Finally Neyo can give all his good songs to talented singers who are not buttholes.

  18. dcypher1 says:

    He’s full of it he’s not going to quit the bis yeah right but I really hope he does cus he sucks not just as a person but as a “artist” he’s wack too. Sounds like an empty promise to me. But I hope I’m wrong and he follows thru. Please quit no one cares.

  19. Diana says:

    I don’t get singers who smoke!!

  20. Launicaangelina says:

    Although this is something usually discussed in regards to addicts, I can’t help but see some King Baby Syndrome traits in him.

  21. Lulu86 says:

    Like most people who can’t see or learn from their faults, he has it completely backwards.’I’m tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18′. Are you kidding me???yes people were disgusting and enraged after the 09 assault. But does he think he has been a model citizen since then. He is always disrespect, throwing chairs out of windows, ranting on twitter,given attitude to journalists, disrespected the women in his life for all to see,gets involved in clubs brawls every other week??? But we are all still hung up on his assault huh? No Chris people just thing you are an attention seeking, entitled man child that still has not learned the errors of your ways and made a humble effort to be seen other wise. Lets all call the waaaambulance.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      This exactly.

      I think people would forgive him if he seemed like he actually changed. Until then, he’s still just a woman-beating douchebag that people are sick of.

    • fingerbinger says:

      All his so called fans do is insult RiRi saying it was her fault and whine that people single out Fist Brown because he is Black. No, it’s because he is a horrible person who keeps getting into violent altercations. He still has shown no remorse. Grow up, be humble.

      • Sanaa says:

        Chris is a horrible guy. Truly. But refusing to acknowledge the Race issues that have helped drive this story is just ignorant.

        I dont want to see Chris have an easier ride because white abusers have it easier. I want to see white abusers (especially those considered hot) have a hard time. As hard as Chris.

      • gg says:

        But he hasn’t had a hard time, that’s the thing. He’s had it easy as hell. He went back to jail for all of 45 minutes this time. He appears on awards shows, gets awards and has pretty much been let off scot-free after a little slap on the wrist from nearly killing a woman with his fists and feet.

        What he’s so mad about is when he acts out, there is a mild backlash and then he gets all indignant. People are furious about the fact that he’s not really been punished for what he’s done. But it hasn’t affected his career. If he’s not selling records now, after being on all those awards shows performing and enjoying himself, it’s because of his music. I see no punishment for his rotten behavior all this time.

        These guys think they’re so cool with their constructed thug image, yet, hello, the rest of the world outside their little thug group doesn’t think it’s so cool.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I don’t race drives this story.

        I think throwing a chair through the window at Good Morning America drives this story.

        I think getting into fights with Drake drives this story.

        I think beating Frank Ocean drives this story.

        I think Chris’s own actions and his lack of remorse and recognition of the severity of the crime drives this story. Chris could have donated his time and money to domestic violence prevention charities, but he did not. He has acted indignant and like HE is the victim the ENTIRE time. I wish he would have a Walter White moment and realize HE himself “is the Danger”, not the victim!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        What GG and Tiffany said.

        @sanna-It’s important to me that you know I’d be the first to agree with you if I thought race was a factor here.

      • FingerBinger says:

        @Sanaa How do you explain Mike Tyson? He’s a convicted rapist and now he’s dancing and singing on the Tony awards show. He’s doing interviews on Fox news FFS. Dr.Dre threw a woman down the stairs and now people are tripping over themselves to buy his $200 beats headphones. Even Micheal Vick is a hot commodity now. 3 Black men who have rehabbed their images. So no it isn’t about race.

      • justme says:

        Charlie Sheen beats all his women and never sees the inside of a jail cell. It is sad because Chris’ mother taught him abusive behavior was ok. It doesn’t excuse it but it does explain it. I like to watch Chris perform I forgive him. Rihanna did too. Too bad the world cannot.

  22. gg says:

    Oh good. So that means you’ll be flippin burgers off in France with Dumye Pest?

  23. EIleen says:

    Oh please oh please oh pretty please make this happen!

  24. Kiddo says:

    How will I get anything accomplished today with my heavy grief weighing me down? Sniffles, snort, sniffles.

  25. blue marie says:

    dude, in the words of JLH “what are you waiting for?!?” he is an idiot, and I’m open to suggestions on how we can speed this along..

  26. Mia 4S says:

    Wait everyone…shhh…do you hear that? It’s the smallest violin in the world playing!

  27. Melibea4ever says:

    Oh chris..u def won’t be missed!

  28. grabbyhands says:

    Quit threatening and just DO IT. No one will miss you.

  29. RHONYC says:

    *praying hands, whispering*

    oh god please, oh please, oh please…


  30. Poink517 says:

    Please quit. With your free time, please finish the community service that you weasled your way out of. Piece of trash.

  31. Anoneemouse says:

    Sniff sniff…so sad…nah not really

  32. Renee says:

    Yay! Now if he could take Bieber with him when he rides off into the sunset on the back of a garbage truck, that would make my day!

  33. MademoiselleRose says:

    Do it, do it, do it! Pleeeaaase…

  34. Laura says:

    I must adimt that all these comments warms my cockles!! Snark on Ladies snark on!

  35. fabgrrl says:

    Don’t let the door hit ya where the dog shoulda bit ya!

  36. janie says:

    Bye, bye! He’s over it?? What an arrogant ass! I think considering what he did, he should count his blessings that he still makes music. He has been in & out of trouble ever since. Throw this smug, know-it-all jerk in jail!

  37. K-Rock says:

    Woohoo!!!!! Christmas came early this year! Buh bye CB! Don’t let the door hit ya.

  38. Smitten says:

    Wait, I thought this last album was supposed to be his last? So he has another album coming out post pre-retirement?

  39. Jaded says:

    He needs to just go away, do something useful for humanity for a change, drop his posse and try to prevent all the bad karma that will surely come his way sooner or later.

  40. Aud says:

    When supposed ‘artists’ and singers are more known for their narcissistic and psychotic Twitter feeds, it pretty much spells the end for them career wise.
    They have nothing else to offer.

  41. WendyNerd says:

    *Cues ‘Ode to Joy, Organizes party*

  42. Nicolette says:

    Aside from his “I’m cool and over it” reference to the beating, the link to the comments made on Twitter is even more disturbing. To read one after another proudly proclaim how they would let him beat them and punch them in the face, is truly astonishing to me.

    How can so many young women, or any woman for that matter feel that way, are they that stupid? Is it a total desensitization to violence, a lack of empathy for abused women, or are they just willing to allow anything to be done to them at the hands of someone they think is ‘cute’? One or more of them may turn out to be victims of domestic violence in their futures, and I doubt they’ll find it amusing when they are left bruised, battered, bleeding and in need of a cast or two.

    Don’t know what they were taught growing up, but I’ve always made the point clear to my daughter that no one is to lay a hand on her. Sorry for going on, but that just really stunned me.

    • Lisa says:

      I feel it’s all of that combined, Nicolette. This is a demonized, desensitized, cruel world we live in.

    • blaize says:

      Someone who they see as ‘cute’, someone who is rich, and someone who is famous.

      In 2009 preteens decided in a poll that a woman dressing provocatively and doing a suggestive dance move is worse than a man violently battering his girlfriend. Some adults expressed pride over the ‘wisdom’ of these preteens. I’ll try to find the link to that site. Doesn’t that tell you something sad about our culture? Not all that surprising in a victim-blaming, sexist world that considers sexuality to be worse than violence. Kids learn the lessons that society teaches them.

  43. aquarius64 says:

    Who’s the bigger, negative-headline-drawing idiot, Chris Brown or Justin Bieber? It’s a toss up.

  44. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Comments are all spot on; You’re right Aud; who do these posers and punks think they are; Jimi Hendrix.Otis Redding, James Brown, etc.
    Hopefully I’ll see this douchenugget serving me my chicken fingers at the local McDonalds.

  45. claire says:

    Forever the victim. Sigh. Just can’t with this dude. And what’s with the “18″ crap? Trying to downplay it again? He was 20 when he assaulted Rihanna.

  46. rrabbit says:

    Chris, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

    Here a few more things you could promise to “quit”
    Quit beating up other people.
    Quit being an asshole.
    Quit showing up anywhere near a camera or a microphone.

  47. I Choose Me says:

    Na na na na na na, hey, hey, hey, good bye!

    I hope.

  48. blaize says:

    Good riddance. Your continued success combined with all of your victim-blaming enablers represent something problematic about our society anyway.

  49. lisa says:

    that’s unfortunate said no one

  50. lovegossip says:

    Please. Chris saying he is going to quit music is like when someone calls in a bomb threat. You don’t call in a bomb threat if it is real, you do it for attention. Just like Chris! :-(

  51. Cyndi says:

    You gone?
    Oh…ok, just askin’. Take your time.
    You gone? (o;

  52. The Original Mia says:

    F-ing tease! He’s not going anywhere.

  53. missanne says:

    who cares. but hey, is your bodyguard busy??

  54. Nell says:

    What can I do personally to make this actually happen? I’m open to suggestions!

  55. skuddles says:

    Oh please yes – QUIT!!! Too bad we couldn’t shuttle him off to outer space…

  56. Tansey says:

    Awwwww, poor baby! Anyone got a tiny violin for the baby?

    Screw him and anyone who says he should be forgiven. He should’ve been blacklisted from the music industry the night he beat Rhianna. There are many, many people, young and not, who look up to him and they should’ve been shown that violence like that is not acceptable. Instead they were shown that as long as you’re a famous musician, you can get away with it. Disgusting.

  57. Onyx XV says:

    There really aren’t too many people on this planet who are more loathsome than Chris Brown. Wonder what could be done to convince him to follow through on that “threat”??

  58. angela says:

    im sorry …i didnt realize he wrote music…is that what that was??

  59. Miss Grey says:

    I absolutely love every single one of these comments. Too great, internetz, too great.

  60. Raquel says:

    He should release one more album. The background instruments could all be the world’s smallest violins, playing just for him and the fact that almost killing his girlfriend pretty much shot any chance he had of being accepted in the mainstream.

    Heaven knows, Rihanna is such a hot mess of a self-sell-out that she would probably croon a final duet with him, as long as there’s some attention and a paycheck in it in for her.

  61. Str8Shooter says:

    Don’t let the proverbial door hit your skinny punk-ass on the way out!

    Can’t wait to hear about this guy getting into a fight with a MAN and getting his ass kicked!

  62. Marybel says:

    You promise? Pinky swear? I can only hope.

  63. erika says:

    “no….please……uhhh……nn…..t..n…ooooo…” F*ck it, I can’t even type the words to make fun of this diaper ass twat.

    we only wish chris.

  64. Jenn says:

    As my sweet, kind mamaw used to say, “bye! don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya!”

  65. abe says:

    don’t just talk………..DO IT!!

  66. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    Why do I envision him saying this in a pouty manner, and punctuating that threat with a stop of a foot and the crossing of his arms and a huff?
