Chris Brown goes blonde! This move was in tune with the musician’s release of his fourth album “F.A.M.E.”
The musician, who has gotten more well-known for his physical abuse with his former flame Rihanna two years ago than his music, premiered his new hair color via his Twitter account (@chrisbrown) on Sunday together with the words, “Look at me now.”
The 21-year old Brown recently made news again when photos of Rihanna cropped up last Wednesday, this time more graphic than the infamous picture circulated right after the 2009 Grammy Awards. The new picture shows more obvious injuries all over her face and cuts on her mouth. This also came in time when a court order just lifted barring Brown to contact Rihanna.
Chris however may have gained a lot of haters because the picture was strategically released right around the premier of his new album. He vented out to mtv.co.uk, writing, “It’s ironic how ‘somebody’ put this out right around my album time! Wow! I guess that’s supposed to be strategic chess move. Unbelievable.”
Maybe Brown should stop trying too hard and concentrate on just, well, performing great. The “With You” singer already gave tearful apologies to Rihanna and their fans and participated in a tribute to Michael Jackson where he broke into tears before he could even finish his set. It was later speculated that the tearful performance may have been more of an attempt to save his career by playing the sympathy card than to actually play homage to the late superstar.
