[5][6] The younger child of the couple, he has an older sister, Lytrell Bundy,[7] who works in a bank.[5] Music was always present in Browns life beginning in his childhood. He would listen to soul albums that his parents owned,[6] and eventually began to show interest in the hip-hop scene.[3] Brown taught himself to sing and dance at a young age and often cites Michael Jackson as his inspiration.[5] He began to perform in his church choir and in several local talent shows.[8][9] When he mimicked an Usher performance of "My Way",[10] his mother recognized his vocal talent, and they began to look for the opportunity of a record deal.[8] At the same time, Brown was going through personal issues. His parents had divorced, and his mothers boyfriend terrified him by subjecting her to domestic violence.[11] At the age of 13, Brown was discovered by Hitmission Records, a local production team that visited his fathers gas station while searching for new talent.[12] Hitmissions Lamont Fleming provided voice coaching for Brown, and the team helped to arrange a demo package and approached contacts in New York to seek a record deal.[13] Tina Davis, senior A&R executive at Def Jam Recordings, was impressed when Brown auditioned in her New York office, and she immediately took him to meet the former president of the Island Def Jam Music Group, Antonio "L.A." Reid, who offered to sign him that day. "I knew that Chris had real talent," says Davis. "I just knew I wanted to be part of it."[14] The negotiations with Def Jam continued for two months, and Davis then lost her job due to a corporate merger. Brown asked her to be his manager, and once Davis accepted, she promoted the singer to labels such as Jive Records, J-Records and Warner Bros. Records.

I didn’t love all the records, but I loved his voice. It wasn’t a problem because I knew that he could sing, and I knew how to make records."[15] Brown ultimately chose Jive due to its successful work with then-young acts such as Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Brown stated, "I picked Jive because they had the best success with younger artists in the pop market, [...] I knew I was going to capture my African American audience, but Jive had a lot of strength in the pop area as well as longevity in careers."[14] Brown attended Essex High School i Virginia until x in [ [10] early 2005, when he moved to New York to pursue his music career. 2005–06: Chris Brown and acting debut After being signed to Jive Records in 2004, Brown started the recording process in February 2005.

  • Chris Brown (American entertainer) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Brown_(American_entertainer) Success and comparison to other artists In addition to his solo commercial success, Brown has been featured on several hits such as "No Air", a duet with singer Jordin Sparks, "Shortie like Mine" with the rapper Bow Wow and "Shawty Get Loose" alongside Lil Mama and T-Pain. The songs have peaked on number three, number nine and number ten on the Billboard Hot 100 respectively.[60][61][62] Due to his dance routines, Brown has been compared to R&B artists Usher and Michael Jackson and has cited them as a large influence on his music.[63] Domestic violence case At around 12:30am on February 8, 2009, Brown and then-girlfriend, recording artist Rihanna had an argument y g g which escalated into physical violence, leaving Rihanna with visible facial injuries which required p y g j q hospitalization. Brown turned himself in to the Los Angeles Police Departments Wilshire station at 6:30pm and g was booked under suspicion of making criminal threats.[64] The police report did not name the female in the t [ incident as is policy,[65] but media sources soon revealed that the victim was Rihanna.[66][67][68] Following Browns arrest, several commercial ads featuring him were suspended, his music was withdrawn from multiple radio stations, and he withdrew from public appearances, including one at the 2009 Grammy Awards, where he was replaced by Justin Timberlake and Al Green.[66][69][70][71] Brown hired a crisis management team and released a statement saying, "Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired."[72] On March 5, 2009, Brown was charged with felony assault and making criminal threats.[73][74] He was g y g t [73][74] arraigned on April 6, 2009, and pleaded not guilty to one count of assault and one count of making criminal g threats.[75] On June 22, 2009, Brown pleaded guilty to a felony and accepted a plea deal of community labor, [75] y y five years formal probation and domestic violence counseling.[76] Several organizations against domestic [ violence criticized the plea deal, advocating the punishment was not severe enough for the crime; the level of Browns influence over youth also came under scrutiny.[77][78] On July 20, 2009, Brown released a two-minute video on his official YouTube page apologizing to fans and Rihanna for the assault, expressing the incident as his "deepest regret" and saying that he has repeatedly apologized to Rihanna and "accepts full responsibility". [79][80][81] In the video, Brown said he wanted to speak out earlier about the case but was advised by his attorney not to until the legal ramifications were settled.[79][80][81] The video was removed, but is still available online. On August 25, Brown was sentenced to five years of probation, one year of domestic violence counseling, and six months of community service; the judge retained a five-year restraining order on Brown, which requires him to remain 50 yards away from Rihanna, 10 yards at public events.[82][83] According to Andy Kellman of Allmusic, "A fairly substantial backlash resulted in Brown’s songs being pulled from rotation on several radio stations. Ultimately, however, it had little bearing on the progress of his music and acting careers".[3] On September 2, 2009, Brown spoke about the domestic violence case in a pre-recorded Larry King Live interview, his first public interview about the matter.[84][85][86][87] He was accompanied to the interview by his mother, Joyce Hawkins, and attorney Mark Geragos, as he discussed growing up in a household with his mother being repeatedly assaulted by his stepfather. Brown said of hearing details of his assault of Rihanna, "Im in shock, because, first of all, thats not who I am as a person, and thats not who I promise I want to be."[84] Browns mother said Brown "has never, ever been a violent person, ever" and that she does not believe in the6 of 17 10/14/2012 4:11 PM
  • Chris Brown (American entertainer) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Brown_(American_entertainer) cycle of violence. Brown said that it is "tough" for him to look at the famous photograph released of Rihannas battered face, which may be the one image to haunt and define him forever, and that he still loved her.[84] "Im pretty sure we can always be friends," said Brown, "and I dont know about our relationship, but I just know definitely that we ended as friends." He stated he did not feel that his career was over, and described his relationship with Rihanna as having been like Romeo and Juliet, blaming the media attention in the aftermath of the assault for driving them apart.[84][87] When asked if he had any memory of assaulting Rihanna, he said that he did not, but realized that it occurred, and was sorry for his actions.[84][85][86][87] However, following criticism of saying he did not remember, he later said in a statement, "Of course I remember what happened. Several times during the interview, my mother said that I came to her right afterwards and told her everything." Brown said despite this, "[that night] was and still is a blur".[85][86] In June 2010, Browns application for a visa to enter the UK was refused on the grounds of him "being guilty of a serious criminal offence" due to his assault on Rihanna.[88][88][89] Brown had been planning to do a tour of British cities as part of a European tour but Sony stated that due to "issues surrounding his work visa" the tour was to be postponed. In February 2011, at the request of Browns lawyer, Judge Patricia Schnegg modified with Rihannas agreement the restraining order to a "level one order," allowing both singers to appear at awards shows together in the future.[90][91] On March 22, 2011, after his first performance of "Yeah 3x" and a contentious interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America at the Times Square Studios where he was asked about the Rihanna situation and restraining order, Brown allegedly became violent in his dressing room during a commercial break before his second performance ending that days program, and threw an object at a window overlooking Times Square, causing damage to the window.[92] Brown then took off his shirt and after several angry confrontations with the segment producer, other show staff and building security, left the building shirtless.[93] Following the incident, Brown left a message on Twitter saying, "Im so over people bring this past s**t up!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for there bullshit [sic]." The comment was deleted moments later.[94] On July 11, 2012, Browns community service was evaluated and he was ordered to meet a judge. The evaluation was ordered by Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg on July 10, 2012. He was scheduled to appear in court with regard to the evaluation on August 21, 2012.[95] Relationships Though they became friends in 2005, Browns romantic relationship with Rihanna began in 2008, and ended with the aforementioned domestic violence case in 2009.[96] In 2011, he began dating aspiring model Karrueche Tran. However, throughout 2012 there was persistent media speculation that Brown was rekindling his relationship with Rihanna,[97] though he remained involved with Tran and under probation in the Rihanna domestic violence case.[98] In October 2012, Brown announced that he had ended his relationship with Tran because he didnt "want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna."[99] The day after the announcement, Brown released a video entitled "The Real Chris Brown", which features images of himself, Tran, and Rihanna, as Brown wonders, "Is there such thing as loving two people? I dont know if its possible, but I feel like that."[100] Nude photo, altercation with Drake, and neck tattoo On March 4, 2011, WorldStarHipHop.com leaked a nude photo of Chris Brown on their website. Two weeks later, Brown spoke out on WorldStarHipHop.com[101] and said that the photo was supposed to be sent to a girl,7 of 17 10/14/2012 4:11 PM

He also said he wasnt really bothered, stating that he was "comfortable with his body".[103] On June 14, 2012, Drake and his entourage allegedly threw glass bottles towards Brown at a nightclub called WIP in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City.[104] About eight people were injured during the brawl,[105] including San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker, who had to have surgery to remove a piece of glass from his eye,[106] and a tourist from Australia who suffered injuries to her face and head and received sixteen stitches for her head as a result.[107] Drake wasnt arrested.[108] Brown later made a diss record to Drake a few weeks later. [109][105] He also posted a picture of himself with a gashed chin on Instagram.[110] Browns attorney claimed Drake was the instigator.[111] In September 2012, Brown received criticism for a new neck tattoo that appeared to be the face of a battered woman, prompting allegations that the tattoo was a depiction of Rihanna.[112][113][114] Browns publicist stated that the tattoo does not depict a battered woman and is instead a design derived from a Day of the Dead sugar skull.[115][116] Main article: Chris Brown discography Chris Brown (2005) Exclusive (2007) Graffiti (2009) F.A.M.E.
