Chris Brown: Nude photo wasn't a publicity stunt

You know that nude photo of Chris Brown that was leaked onto the Web earlier this month? Well, the R&B singer is insisting that it wasn't a stunt to drum up publicity for his just-released album, "F.A.M.E."

"Let me be honest with you. I didn't want to put no pictures out; that's not my intention. A lot of people were saying, 'Yo, he leaked the pictures, he was trying to get promotion,'" Brown tells MTV.

"For me, I was always a singer, so unless I'm planning on trying to do porn, I don't think I'd want to just leak my wang out to the world before my album comes out," adds the musician, whose record dropped today.

"It was disappointing to me that it was out, because I was like, 'Man, now it's gonna [look like] a gimmick behind it. And I don't want a gimmick behind anything that I'm doing."

While the incident may have been embarrassing, Brown also found it freeing.

"At this point, there's no more insecurities with me. Everything's out on the table. You've seen everything!" he says. "Also, as an artist I'm free with my music. I get to talk about the subjects I want to talk about and also reach people. So I'm just gonna live my life, man. There's nothing to be upset about, nothing to be angry [about]... where I'm at creatively and mentally is great so I'm not gonna let anybody or any naysayer or hater mess that up, 'cause there's no point, I'm ... winning!"

Why dont you Racist people ( and i loosely use that term) get in a rocket fire it up and go directly into the sun.

    Interesting...I don't think I've heard of a guy having leaked nude photos...he kinda acts like a girl-and that's a chick move for nude photos to be 'leaked' while he just released his album. And is his slong even that big? Has anyone seen the photo to let me know?

Guys, this isn't the way to make a good impression or launch a failing career. It's as cheap as any hoe, hoe, hoe and as ugly as it gets. In the end he'll have no lower place to go!

    Dont want people to see you naked? 1) Dont take nude photos! 2) If you MUST take them, for whatever reason, dont make them accessible to anyone! 3) Noone is above taking the amount of money that the tabloids are willing to pay for the photos! But on the same day as the release of his new album? Doesnt take a rocket scientist....

      I wholeheartedly agree Shirl. At some point though Chris needs to "see" where all this fame is taking him and the advantage being taken by the media. He (and Rihanna) need ongoing therapy but I am sorry to say that they probably would disagree. How important is fame, and at what cost do we need it?

      For someone who considers themself a "grammar coach", you sure could use some help in that area.

      "If he didnt want to put NO pictures out then HE DID infact want too release pictures. Learn so speak properly, boy."

      1. "didn't" has an apostrophe.
      2. there should be a comma after "out"
      3. "in fact" is two words
      4. "to", not "too"
      5. learn "to" speak, not learn "so" speak

      Your racist "boy" at the end makes your stupidity very clear. Just thought I'd help you out, "coach".

    Wow, even the way Chris Brown speaks is "super intelligent". After his stunt at the Good Morning American studios today, Captain D-Bag should be doing everything he can to be seen in the right light, and prove the "haters" wrong. Of can he do that when HE is the wrong one?

    I think he did it on purpose. He has such an ego, I'm sure he;s proud of that big ole wang. I heard he was gay anyways, and has been in a relationship with another guy. Not that I care but it would explain his hatred for women....

    I really feel bad for Chris. He is muti-talented but unfortunately he screwed up his life and reputation with the Rihanna incident. Now reading the news this morning that he got so upset with Robin Roberts on GMA and shattered that window, he showed everybody that he is a very angry person and needs more therapy. Unfortunately, he will never be looked at the same as when he first started out. Too Bad!!!!!
