Chris Brown: Interviews Won’t Happen in 2012, Says Manager
In an interview with Billboard, Breezy's manager Tina Davis revealed that the volatile singer will be "concentrating on performing" in 2012, and will be taking a break from talking about his personal life and relationships.
"[The plan is to] not have him do interviews but to concentrate on performing and recording," Davis said. "It was something we set a while back. We're not trying to be rude, selfish or disrespectful to anyone in any way. If people are going to judge anything, judge him for his talent. He signed up to sing and entertain. Not talk about his personal life."
With a new media strategy inspired by what she referred to as "God's plan for Chris," Davis said that she looks forward to a fresh start for her client in 2012.
"We look at it as starting all over. Our grind, our choices are different than they probably would have been three years ago. But we are humbly trying to get back into the swing of things," Davis continued. "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 20-30 years to go. He has a right to be able to grow up and learn about being a man, being a person."
Currently, Brown is crafting his fifth LP, 'Fortune.' The album's first single, 'Strip,' features Kevin McCall and an accompanying visual has been released. He'll also appear at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 12. The crooner is up for a nomination in the Best R&B Album category for his 2010 release 'F.A.M.E.' as well as nominations in the Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for 'Look At Me Now.'
