Chris Brown's thinking of quitting music

Chris Brown's next album might also be his last.

The 24-year-old performer tweeted Tuesday that he's considering an early retirement from music.

"Don't worry mainstream America," Brown said. "After this X album, it'll probably be my last album."

The "X" album he's referring to is due August 20, but most of the press Brown's been generating lately has nothing to do with his professional life.

Last month, a judge revoked his probation because of allegations that he didn't give his license and registration to another driver after a minor traffic accident.

Although two of the charges against the singer were soon dropped, MTV reports that Brown was booked on the hit-and-run charge Monday at a Los Angeles County jail and released within minutes. He now awaits a hearing on August 16, when a trial date will be set to determine if the probation revocation should hold.

If it does, the singer could wind up being ordered to serve part of the original five-year sentence that was imposed after he was convicted in the 2009 assault of his ex, Rihanna.

With so much concentration on his legal troubles, Brown said Tuesday that the fame that comes with it isn't worth it.

"Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent," he tweeted. "I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it!"

    Oh this can't be America talking to a gifted African-American now all of a sudden your politically correct and socially correct if this is not the devil speaking themselves how do you have a right to talk bad about this man when your ancestors from this country has inflicted tremendous atrocities against the African-American race and still do so that they systematically and no one is ever charged these people or is said anything about charging these people all across America African-Americans were being hauled by one's ever been the trial for whole towns murder and killing people calling themselves the Ku Klux Klan.

    The birth of a nation no wonder we are hated throughout the world as hypocrites now you have the nerve to even go around the post yourself as being a democracy is civilized you need to pay for the crimes you committed against African-Americans and employees are ahead culture and made millions and millions of crimes committed against these people and no one's ever been brought to trial we can take a look at Tulsa Oklahoma Black Wall Street alone tells the character of this country.

    But don't worry the judgment of America is coming very soon and when it does, to look back in history and see which you done to Chris Brown's ancestors we're nothing but a bunch of hypocrites who gives you the right to judge any anyone take a look in the mirror at yourself before you open your mouth against this young man you're not perfect you are far from perfect and I can prove it the day America mess with China will be its last time as America need to pay her bills to the rest of the world especially China this country is on its way to hell because of the crimes committed against the African-American race.

    A moral reparation is no justice no nothing definitely and systematically criminalize the black youth of America may God surely judge this country severely America's so-called mistakes far worse than what Chris Brown had a spat with his girlfriend of sure most of you seen your mother and father get into a fight family members friends it was just the simply misunderstanding and now you want to crucify him because he's African-American why would we want to stay in this country anyway this races cheap filthy cesspool of a country with its corporate concrete jungles.

    It's conspiracy to put drugs in the community and dehumanize the African-American race there is nothing but a bunch of witches and devils they came to this country there were kicked out of England and now we know why !!!!
    This is nothing but the whole truth so help me God. Don't believe me check history starting with the American Indians I'm just a historian report the real facts and last but not least let us not forget the brave men and women with stood up up against this demonic forces.

    From John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy to Martin Luther King to everyone who's ever tried to stand up they mostly get chilled environment that they have murder our presidents and our leaders in this country Chris Brown is not even near the tip of this Iceberg!!!!
    I pray we find the backbone to stand up for what is right and not across the world but in this country before we go around police in the world you to correct injustices committed against ourselves !
    I remain AGod !!

      My ancestors were enslaved in concentration camps and murdered for doing what is morally right. My family hid jews during the Holocaust, some of which died for standing true! My great Uncle was torcherd for being gay, and hung by the neck. It was not my German friends and colleauges that did these acts. It was not my neighbors that hung my relative by the neck. As a gay man myself, who has been physically and emotionally abused for my orientation, I feel that struggle. And having devoted much of my life to becoming an Anthropologist and studying the African Diaspora, I better understand. Of course I will never know what it is like to be Black, but I have learned to be color conscious and view this country from African eyes. Progress comes with responsibility, action, and acceptance. But not blame, and hate. Be the better person you know are, and set aside anger, and replace with determinance.

    He makes the statement, "...I'm tired for being famous for a mistake I made when I was 18." A mistake? Perhaps you can compartmentalize it as just that. However, "mistakes" that affect the lives of others in such a destructive way are more than just your average, I-shouldn't-have-called-you-that-name. Mistakes that are based on an abusive behavior towards another person are generally not viewed as just "mistakes" by others.

    Personally, I've never been a fan of Brown's music – even before his abuse towards Ri-Ri. He's just "average" in my opinion, with nothing that separates him from the hundreds of thousands of other "average" entertainers out there. Sadly for Chris Brown, because of his average talent as an entertainer, his "mistake" has completely overshadowed and eclipsed his AVERAGE talent.

    I agree with Chris on this one point: your time to step aside and pursue another career path is long overdue. Get on with your life and make a productive spectacle of yourself...but privately.

Once you quit music, if that's what you are calling it, please find a job that doesn't involve contact with any people. Dig ditches or hunt for fishing worms.

    Who is he kidding??? Chris Brown is way to narcissistic to give up fame and the spotlight. Even if he were to quit the music business, he'd still end up in the news on a regular basis for something dumb that he's done. He always refuses to take ownership for his "mistakes" .....nor learn from them. How about he mentally grow up, be a man and take responsibility for his actions and learn from them so he'll stop doing dumb things OVER AND OVER....and then maybe people would truly focus on only his music.

    I love how Chris Brown twists everything around like, "Oh poor me, everyone is still mad about the Rihanna crime. If you don't leave me alone, I won't make music anymore". Gee, some threat. Chris, you never did time for beating up Rihanna. So first, do that. Secondly, you never had a hit song. So nobody cares if you quit music. No, you are NOT cool. And it doesn't matter if you're "over it" because guess what? You are still on probation! It's not over until a judge says it's over. And of course Chris Brown will continue to try to make music. It's the only way his delusional ass can get paid.

    I'd say "good riddance" but retirements in music have as much sticking power as retirements in pro boxing. When a guy like Chris Brown has to give up the limelight, the money, the women and the attention, he's not likely to take it well.

    It's one thing to be out of the limelight because your music stops charting. But to take oneself out of the game before it's legitimately one's time? That always goes wrong.

    That said, it's the public who should retire Chris Brown. He keeps claiming he's sick of being known for his criminal act. Well, he should of thought of that before he started bashing Rihanna. There's no one to blame here but himself, and it's clear through his actions that Chris Brown has taken ZERO responsibility for his actions. I won't support Chris Brown. I change the station when he's on the radio and stopped listening to any and all of his collaborators/enablers. This includes Talib Kwali, who I happen to be a big fan of. Someone's got to draw a line somewhere.

    You make a good point. If you were Lindsay Lohan I would say dropout. Unfortunately, as stated in the messages, people likely won't forget whether your in or out of the biz. If others can't get passed the fact that you have changed, (despite little stupid stuff we ALL do), who cares? You have your life. Don't let others dictate how you live it. After a year you'd be wanting to let out that talent of yours anyway. It's very difficult for creative people to squash that in themselves. I was against you when the whole thing with Rihanna happened but I do think you have at least learned that you don't hit women. Maybe showing more, that you are still sorry about all that, and do some community service helping battered women or something. Don't just throw money at it though. You're a smart guy, you can have your fun without all the drama. You just have to go about it the right way.

    Good. He's an embarrassment in so many ways. But his music could be the most embarrassing part. The only reason most people have hear of him is because his right hook followed by a left then two more rights to Rihanna's face. Go to jail and just get it over with.

    Thinking of Quitting? By the sound of his music, I was always under the impression that he was continually failing to start such a career.

    He could disappear from the industry immediately and it would be as if he had never come around at all.

      Of course, some of these idiots think it's perfectly alright that she attacked him with fists, nails and teeth (while he was trying to drive), but that's perfectly ok because she's a girl? And, of course, that poor "victim" received so much sympathy and publicity that now she's a superstar. He was an 18 year old kid responding to an attack. He's more than apologized for his behavior, made no excuses, and he's paid his dues. Making the rest of his life a living hell is just plain wrong!

      Just for the record. Pay attention. There is NEV-ER, EV-ER, a time when it is okay to hit a woman, men. Esp-ecially a grown man with the power he had over a woman who weighs maybe a c-note wet. There is no excuse, no justification for a man to punish a woman with is power and fists (and teeth, in this case). He could have stopped the car and dropped her off, if she was hurting him so bad with her blows. But, no. He turned and beat her within and inch of her life–and probably would have done worse, if they had been alone. Parents need to teach young men these basic tenants of manhood. It's just never, for any reason, okay. Period.

      "slander"...I find your use of the word to be a bit misguided. Here is the definition:

      slander n. oral defamation, in which someone tells one or more persons an untruth about another which untruth will harm the reputation of the person defamed.

      For something to be slanderous, it has to be untrue. He did, in fact, beat a woman (pathetic justifications aside).
