Expect to hear a lot less from Chris Brown

If Chris Brown has seemed rather quiet lately, it's all going according to plan.

Brown's manager, Tina Davis, tells Billboard that the strategy for the 22-year-old singer/actor is to "not have him do interviews, but concentrate on performing and recording."

She adds that it's something they've been planning for a while. "We're not trying to be rude, selfish or disrespectful in any way. If people are going to judge anything, judge him for his talent. He signed up to sing and entertain, not to talk about his personal life," she says.

This may not be a bad idea, considering last year's interview outburst on the set of "Good Morning America" that marred the young star's rep. And judging from the interviews we've heard from his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, no one has ceased asking questions about Brown's 2009 assault of the Barbadian singer.

"As much as some people wanted him to go away, his business life and personal life are totally two separate things," Davis says, adding that the business end is appearing bright.

"We are humbly trying to get back into the swing of things," she says. "He has [a] movie and other scripts coming our way. A couple of different companies have been talking to us about partnering with him. They're not afraid to stand next to him. They understand that, hey, this young man has another 20 to 30 years to go. He has a right to be able to grow up and learn about being a man."

    Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much approximately this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something. I believe that you simply could do with a few p.c. to power the message house a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I'll certainly be back.

    GOOD BUSINESS DECISION. Fans don't really understand how the entertainment industry operates, it takes a LOT of work and focus to stay relevant and Chris Brown has done a really good job off getting back to what he does BEST which is perform and WRITE his materials. So this is a very SMART move on the part of his management team. They are taking him back to his roots and that's where he shines and performs the BEST when he's focused on his craft and doing what he does best. The whole Rihanna issue is DONE, its time for everyone to move on. Even Rihanna herself has moved on and has shown no ill will towards Chris Brown based on her recent texts. We've ALL made mistakes, some more serious than others, but we all have the ability to LEARN and GROW from our mistakes and that's more important then the constant never-ending "blame" game. No matter what anyone in this blog says... Chris Brown is talented beyond his years... he's constantly thinking outside the box and I'm sure Chris Brown will surely defy all leaps and bounds with his artistic genius mind. Hate him all you want, but the boy is a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment business. He's earned the rank for sure.

      Took the words right out of my head! So true, like the manager said his personal and professional life are 2 different things. There are so many big name actors/performers who have made very poor decisions and they don't get half the hate that Chris Brown does. He is an amazing performer and I look forward to supporting any of his upcoming albums and films! #TeamBreezy

    I think it was Mark Twain who said "It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear to be stupid, than to open it and remove all doubt." Perhaps Chris Brown, and his managers and publicists, have come to understand that.

    All I can say is, he is doing the right thing. Needs to settle down, and mature, and rehabilitate himself. In time he will rehabilitate his career. I hope he does the right thing, and focuses on making his wrong's – right again. And continue to live in that manner. I've been physically abused very badly, and even I can say, I can forgive my abuser. I believe people can change if given the chance. He needs to take that chance.

    I think starts should be treated like regular peoplle. even if the are super rich and could care less about poorer class.
    If I got to work and stop at bar and have some drinks and I get a tickets that costs me my job. If I beat my man
    and files charges i go to jail and loose my job. If I get caugh steeling i go to jail and loose job. If anything like this
    happends to stars then they would ge see free, I wouldn't so it's not right to give them the roylal treatment, they
    are already getting it. I MEAN REALLY DO YOU THINK I AM THAT STUPID.

If we can get past EVERYTHING being about race, then maybe this country can move forward.

The negativity. Focusing on our outter packaging that not a damned one of us had any choice in. You wanna fault a person for that? That person you should fault stares back at you each time you look into a mirror. That person lives life one way, visually.

    I don't in any way condone domestic violence–however, none of you know C. Brown personally, nor were you there the night he and Rihanna had that violent disagreement in his vehicle. All I'm saying is he's a young man who made a very poor decision in the heat of the moment. We didn't go our whole lives without making poor decisions, so we have no right to point fingers. Chris is a great dancer–he thought up sequences Michael Jackson would be proud of and if you dig R&B, he's got a nice voice.

    I dnt usually comment but this was a heated forum. im black but was adopted by a conservative christian white couple at 8. so i see both sides. however its obvious everyone is simply throwing jabs and slurs. yea its easy to see how prejudice one is when your saying the n word like every few words but you gotta think 'that person has been raised with a partial ideology. its funny cause nowadays you would think we would have progressed a little more but you cant get caught up in other people's insecurities or neandrathal-like opinions. no it isnt excusable for anyone of any race to cause pain to a fellow human whether mentally or physically but it happens. and when it does we shouldnt focus on the color but rather the person . its wrong to lump everyone all together. we have been taught stereotypes but if youre knowledgable you should know where that stems from. im in my late 20s i produce music nothing you would expect . once i speak people opinion change. dont lump a race all together.

    Domestic violence happens in all races and tax brackets. Chris made a terrible mistake. He admitted his mistake and was punished; and has moved on. So has Rhianna. The public and the media should move on as well. AND anyone who doesn't know who Chris Brown is must have spent the last few years in isolation. The man can sing, dance and act. He is extremely talented and will continue to be in the spotlight. And remember he is still only 22 years old. BTW: the man has plenty of white fans including this southern born & raised great grandma.

The boy is a joy to watch and hear – and see him fight against the labels he's been given (he hit one woman, one time, 3 years ago – I'm not justifying but he's not a 'woman beater') – fighting back with his talent and hard work – and winning.

    @xjdavid, I don't think your statement is really true. If domestic violence was that much of an issue for white people, how is it that CB was one of the main acts on the VMA's last year? And as far as domestic violence not being an issue for blacks, I think it depends on who you ask. BET didn't allow him on their awards in 2009 when Michael Jackson died (and that was probably the worst thing they could have done to him since he was Chris' idol). I'm sure neither the NAACP nor Oprah (or even Obama for this matter) agreed with what he did, so I guess we'll have to search for those black people that don't think beating a woman is a big deal. And also, I can't wait for the next Mel Gibson movie. I'll be sure to take my wife with me since we're both still fans.

      It is amazing how much media controls the minds. There is a total double standard out in our society while people are so easy playing the victim....man or woman.
      As a woman myself, sometimes women think it is appropriate to take advantage of the double standard. The way my siblings and I were raised,with our father being in the Marine Corp and raising the household as a military household, taught us alot. My sister and I was taught from a early age if a boy not a man ever puts his hands on us mind you I said boy because there is no boy or man that will ever be brave enough to face the wrath of a father.
