Is Chris Brown Retiring?

First Amanda Bynes, and now Chris Brown? What’s up with stars retiring in their 20's?

On Sunday, the BET Awards brought with it many things… A performance by Spike Lee and Samuel L. Jackson, a tribute to Whitney Houston, and a retirement announcement from Chris Brown…


Breezy got the R&B community talking last night while accepting his award for Best Male R&B Artist. Referring to his new album, Fortune, Brown’s acceptance phrasing was a little troubling.

"I'd like to thank Team Breezy, everybody who worked on any one of my albums," he said. "My last album that's coming out in two days. ... I just want to thank all my fans. It's dedicated to y'all. This one's for y'all, man, I appreciate everything."

Last album? As in no more? Finite? Caput?

Turns out all the worry was as unnecessary as his new signature toy collection. According to MTV news, Brown simply misspoke and he has no intention of retiring any time soon.


Chris Brown put on a stand up performance of his songs “Turn Up the Music” and “Don’t Wake Me Up.” The set included neon strobes lights, lasers, ballet dancers and a pyramid-theme set decor. Not to mention that – for whatever reason – half of Brown’s shirtless body was painted Tin Man silver.

Despite all the pizazz, absent at the awards was any sign of the beef between Brown and Drake. Drizzy stayed home for the event.

The offer for the duo to settle the score in a boxing ring, after their scuff at a NYC club is now up to $10 million according to Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman.

Brown’s Fortune arrives in stores tomorrow.
