Confirmed: Chris Brown’s ‘Fortune’ Delayed

chris brown fortune 1 e1335089075557 Confirmed: Chris Browns Fortune Delayed

As the age old adage goes, good ‘Fortune’ comes to those who wait. And ‘wait’ is what fans of Chris Brown will have to do. For, after weeks of speculation, the Pop star has confirmed that the release of his 5th studio album has been pushed back.

Details after the jump…

The news comes via the 22 year old’s Twitter page, where he announced today that the eagerly awaited LP (formerly due on May 8th) will now arrive on…

July 3rd 2012

*************

Granted the album is increasingly moving further and further from its initial March store date, we can’t say we’re averse to it. For, unlike the delays which plague many a flop project, the one’s here appear both necessary and well-thought out.

Yes, ‘Strip’ and ‘Turn Up The Music’ performed well, yet for an album which is shaping up to be the comeback Chris has been working so hard to achieve, a solid pre-release setup is a must. And with him currently touring Australia and no new videos conjured up since ‘Turn Up The Music’, an early May release would have been a T.K.O.

Hence, expect new singles, visuals and performances (hello BET Awards?) going into the LP’s new release window. Exciting times! Though, perhaps most titillating is the fact that Chris, Usher, and Justin Bieber will now all be releasing within the same June/Summer window. Who do you think will come out on top – beyond, of course, their respective record labels?

Your thoughts?

    I agree with Sam. For once, pushing back an album seems like a smart thing to do. Turn Up The Music wasnt a big enough hit to carry the album, he needs a LAMN type hit. And definately more promo.

    As for him releasing in the same window frame as Beiber and Usher, I dont think they will have any effect on each other, though it will be intresting. Team Breezy and “Beilbiers”(something like that) are two totally different audiences, and Usher seems like a non factor with this era. Is just me or is no one really checking for him this time around? I didnt even know he was dropping an album this Summer.

    Usher a non-factor? Lmao i’d bet money Usher will open with bigger numbers. His single actually sounds fresh unlike the generic b******* chris released. It sounds like every other dance pop single on the radio, it got old so quick. If dance singles sold albums then Jlo, Pitbull, Guetta and LMFAO albums last year should have been amongst the best sellers. Not a single one of em crossed the 2million mark neither did they open big.

    Usher is no1 on urban radio & chart right now and climbing up on hot 100. Now he knows dumb songs like OMG cant carry an album. RVR barely scanned 2 million units ww

    the ass kissing in this site is irritating, it was pushed back because it’s a flop, no hit or strong single, that’s why, of course it is a good idea to push it back, but saying it is not because it’s flopping it’s going too much, maybe if the labels wouldn’t have been so stupid they would have released the remixes on iTunes or at least TUTM since many rihanna fans loved it and well we all know that when it comes to support singles, the Navy is great at it

    anyway i don’t think it is a good idea to be released in June 26th since, if i’m not wrong, it is the release date for both, Maroon 5 and Linkin Park, and well Linkin Park has always big numbers due to their loyal fanbase and Maroon 5 has a hit with Payphone, plus the constant presence of Adam Levine in The Voice is well promo, anyway just time will tell

    This is a good idea. Although I was looking foward to buying Fortune in May… Yes he needs to do more promo in the US and release videos for Sweet Love & Till I Die before the album comes out! Turn Up the Music only peaked at #10 on the Hot 100 which is disapointing.

    IDK, I just feel like Usher is keeping a low profile this time around. I havent seen him perform his new song anywhere yet, and its doing average on the Hot 100. Very few artist can sell strong without mainstream attention. I dont think R vs R would have sold as good without OMG, even though Hey Daddy and TGMB were better singles.

    I agree that Dance music doesnt sell albums anymore (see Flo Rida who has yet to sell over 1million world wide in total album sales). But I think Chris has the dance-pop radio songs for mainstream audiences and more R&B songs in store his urban audience, like he did with F.A.M.E.

    lol at people saying usher is a non-factor. i will be buying ushers next album because he will be doing more r&b, i will not buy chris browns cd because the singles have been generic trash and he uses too much autotune. people will buy a dance generic single, but your core urban fanbase will abandon you, and they are the ones who buy albums.

    now that’s a WISE decision !!!

    and he need to release a lot of dance/electronic singles before the release date to hype his pop fans cuz they are the ones who actually buy albums.

    and them 4 singles that were released till now are not that successful ” with TUTM being the most successful among them ” and his team need to be more organized.
    cuz they are all looked like FLOPS compared to other singles by other artists.

    anyway , good luck , but that’s pretty tiring for his #teambreezy.

    I’M NOT AT ALL PLEASED BY THIS DEVELOPMENT! <—BOO BOO BOO :-(

    I feel that RCA is setting Chris Brown up for a fall and I don't like it at all! May 8 was a perfect time for him. He currently has a lot of momentum and excitement surrounding FORTUNE's release! The more they delay, the more I feel "THE POWERS THAT BE" are working to try and bring him down again. This is a kid who works outside the boundaries. He is not USHER or JUSTIN BIEBER, two of the MUSIC INDUSTRY and MEDIA DARLINGS! Of course all the attention will be on making sure that OLD Usher has the #1 R&B CD and Justin BABBLE has th #1 POP CD.

    ****WHAT THE F*CK EVER RCA, SCREW YOU!*****

    With that said, I will be purchashing my copies of FORTUNE as soon as they are available on JUNE 28, 2012! :-)

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU ON THIS ONE! I have never been a fan of Usher’s but he has had some tracks throughout the years that I have enjoyed mainly his dance songs…..”You Make Me Wanna” and his duets with Beyonce & A Keys. It’s always a Chris Brown “hater” who starts the Chris vs Usher BS. It’s not a MADONNA vs LADY GAGA type deal IMO but someone always want’s to take it there!

    Don’t worry about what 22-yr-old Chris Brown has acheived in his 6 yrs as an R&B artist in the music industry. He has done quite well and will continue to evolve and grow throughout the years! I menioned Usher and Babble becuase the post mentioned them! I didn’t initial say anything negative about Usher just that he (like Bieber), is a music industy & MEDIA DARLIN’….. which is true!

    ok what’s your point honey? whether u call Usher king or not, he is better and more successful than Chris in every way possible. dont make me break it down for u. u know go the ageism route ok but “old” Usher is selling out more arenas than vocally-prepubscent Chris so i guess the ladies are into “old”. Frankly the only thing old is Chris’ last hot 100 no1 albeit trend-biting singles

    June is going to be a competitive month if Usher, Justin and now Chris are going to be releasing their new albums. I will definitely be supporting Usher’s new project because I enjoy all of his albums. I think all three of them will be successful though because they all have loyal fanbases. But in terms of who’s going to be the most successful I’d guess Justin because his young fanbase eats up everything he does.

    Chris Brown was not “bragging” about winning a Grammy! He was responding to the BIASED BULLSH** that was leveled against him when he won. Instead of allowing that kid to enjoy his WELL EARNED GRAMMY, the RACIST, BIASED, BASTARDS of America decided to attack him so he snapped back. As a non-SLAVE in an “ALLEGED FREE NATION” (150,000 BOND for an obvious MURDER… ummm), he had every right to DEFEND HIMSELF as those who set themeselves up against him (Miranda Lambert, blogs, feminist slores) felt they had the right to attack him because he won a Grammy!

    Nobody CARES if “3-yr-old” Chris Brown is or is NOT as successful as Usher Raymond……. THAT’S THE REAL FACT!

    I like Chris & Usher. Usher has been in the game for sometime now and like someone said he has a strong fanbase. Usher fans. grew with him and is very mature about his music. where as Chris has a pretty good size fanbase also but they are really immature about everything he does. They are even mature enough to buy his songs. So Usher, Chris & Beiber will be releasing around the same time will be interesting. Usher label Jive & Chris RCA/Jive.

She needs an accurate account of his “success” so she can determine how much money to get in child support and alimony.

    And for the record, I don’t believe that Usher is all that old but compared to Chris and Babble he damn sure is! :-) I always find it amusing that those who claim to dislike Chris Brown – while beating a PATH to EVERYONE of his TGJ POSTS – are forever mentioning Usher like they are talking about MICHAEL JACKSON!

Poor Amy Winehouse was booed live on air for her well-deserved 5 grammys. we dint see her retorting to the media boast like a 5yo with a pinata. evrybody gets flack; black white asian italian latino. maybe he can learn a thing or 2 from his ex, as wayward and outta control as she is .. never once has she been known to run her mouth with her accomplishments on twitter. she gets just as much flack if not more. ol boy is not even talented enough to be running his mouth, eff a glorified MJback-up dancer wannabe. nobody owes him s***.

    @THEREALXOXO How come “Birthday Cake” didn’t make enough publicity? You sound crazy because that song was everywhere? But what does “Cake” have to do with his album coming out? Cuz I’m sure it prolly wasn’t gonna be on there or if it was, it would’ve been the deluxe edition. ANYWHO, Chris is making a smart decision yet also a setback that some artists do that end up flopping. But I have hope in Chris & believe he will do good with this album. It’s good music. Plus “Turn Up The Music” is the only official single. and video he has out anyway. So maybe after him & Nicki shoot a video for “Right By My Side” & he releases a video, that he will get the results he wants! #TeamBreezy

    I with you on that about Usher’s fans. You can see he don’t have many on twitter but his true fans and he’s mainstream are buying his music. My man Chris fans just talk s*** on twitter. They can’t even buy a few copies of his singles for $1.29 nor do they request. When you look at the radio charts Chris songs make it as far as the top 20′s & 10s then the fans stop requesting and it falls. You go on twitter right now and all you see is these kids who call thereselves fans talking about getting into his pants.You can’t even tell the groupies from the fans because they talk the same s***. Hating his girlfriend for starters this is why their not supporting his music. s*** kids do

    They talk about I can’t wait for FORTUNE and I’m saying for what they can’t even buy 20 copies for $1.29 of Chris songs.

    Anyway I am a Chris, Rihanna & Usher fan so I can buy them all

    I have no problem waiting. I’m checking for him.

    The thing is that I’m kind of worried about both ‘Sweet Love’ and ‘Till I Die’ not having enough buzz. He has about 4 or 5 songs on urban radio right now, so maybe it’s become a bit of an overkill, so releasing an urban single in a month from now after all the other songs that feature him have peaked would be a good move. I hope they sort it all out, whether they stick with the present singles or choose new ones. The only problem is that he won’t be able to capitalize on the success of ‘Turn Up The Music’, so maybe they should consider releasing another pop single right now…

    He needs to get off instagram him and his little girlfriend karate kid need to stop posting pics of each other – none of his fans want to see that! His fan base is mostly made of young girls who fantasize about being with him and when he’s not going on some mad rant on twitter he’s busy posting pics of him and his girl who follows him everywhere like a lost puppy …this boys team will be his downfall!

    Just because you helped Chris get back on top again don’t mean that he has to settle for all the harsh words you throw at him and his girlfriend. Some of you fans are just as bad as the haters.

    So now you can talk all the s*** to him and he is not supposed to block you. Chris knows what the fans did for him but you can’t TELL him what to do & who he can date. Be a fan and suppoet him not trying to be a wife or boyfriend. Chris has a girlfriend whom he cares about and that’s none of our business because she is not the one Chris fans support.

    JUST THE FACTS..

    ..That’ll setting once-and-for-all all the Usher-better-than Chris drivel:

    Usher was a 26-y/o, back in 2004, when “Confessions” was released.
    Usher is a NOW a 33-y/o, who was only seen last year, while onstage in Europe, having to end-early, an actual concert, due to…”exhaustion”.

    Chris Brown is a spritely 22-y/o with boundless energies, and most of all – TIME to make mistakes, grow, and THEN learn from them. Lest we forget he has a highly-mobile, and ‘knee-jerk reactionary’ fan-base..!!

    NO ARTIST CAN NOW SELL AS THEY ONCE HAD: ITunes, Digital Piracy – whatever! If “Thriller” was released today, it’d have NOT sold 50-Million WW. If Adelene’s “21″ was released..say 8-years ago, it’d have sold FAR more than that now 10-Million in-total WW.

    Chris Brown has accomplished MORE than Usher as a 22-y/o:

    1.) Chris Brown is the undisputed BEST DANCER currently to walk the Pop-culture landscape.
    2.) Chris Brown is currently the undisputed BEST SHOWMAN to set-foot on any stage.
    3.) What TV/Cable Award/Entertainment shows had Usher closed, or appeared in that drew an average 3.0 Neilsen?
    4.) Chris’ DWTS appearance drew a still-record-standing 19-Million viewers.
    5.) Chris Brown has added to his pedigree: co-star, who had the longest screen-face-time, of a #1-Movie – “TAKERS” – which has returned upwards of, by now, $100-Million. He also was prominent in said film’s marketing/promotion, AND was its EXECUTIVE PRODUCER – AS A 20-Y/O..!!

    So let us NOW stop the foolish, deflecting “Usher vs. Chris” arguments: Usher HAD his time. Chris is only NOW j-u-s-t beginning to come into his!

    *Meh..* Album delay..?! Who cares..?! If any, this’ll give him time to “rev-up” Team-Breezy to a fever-pitch.. “They” said his fans would abandon him. “They” said no one ever-before had ever gone through such a thing (Feb 8th, 2009 Chrianna) and survived – “they” said he was FINISHED..!! “They” said “F.A.M.E” would flop. “They” sald “Takers” would flop, as all the white cast-member – AND ZOE SALDANA – wanted nothing to do with the film; sure proved “them” wrong! “They” sure talk alot, but those who really count – ALL OF US HERE, OUT ON THE BLOGS – weren’t listening to “them” – f*** OPRAH! f*** TYRA BANKS! f*** JAY-Z! f*** HARVEY LEVIN! ..f***-ALL-”THEM”..!!

    I’m glad to see the Team-Breezy haters are now coming out of the wood-work. You’re, only again, stoking the “US-VERSUS-THEM” fires that had propelled Chris BACK again on top!

    I love Chris, but he over saturated the market with himself. He did too many mix tapes and featured on too many people’s songs. It ‘s become too hard to grab something solid from him. He needs to stop featuring and fall back for a minute to concentrate on his career and developing a sound for himself. It can be done.

    @Shelby No they certainly cant tell him who to date but they CAN refuse to purchase his music and support him. Please dont be naive – Chris is a young desirable man and the music he makes is very sexual. When you present that image as an artist its common sense that your fanbase will consist of young girls who fantasize about being with you. Now of course, unless they are deranged they know very well Chris is entitled to date whom he wants and they know very well he will not date them but to see Karrueche following him everywhere as if they are married is becoming a bit too much to bear! The fact that she seems to have no income of her own and is mooching of him with her friend in tow further rubs salt in the wound. Remember how he was dating Rihanna and you rarely saw them together or being affectionate in public? Or how they swore up and down that they were just friends? That is the kind of mystery the fans expect from an artist nowadays – sad but true. And yes the stupid instagramming has to stop.

    Draya followed him around also. If she was not with him he would get her there with him. She stated in a interview herself that they did not want to be away from each other. .I think you got this twisted . Chris is the one who dragging Kae around with him because if he did not want her around she would not be.Sorry for those whom don’t like her but that’s Chris girl and it’s up to him to leave her not the fans.

    And pointing at Rihanna & Chris they are two artists so their was not time to be hanging around each other. You would only see them on vacation.

    Funny thing: “they”, said the very-same thing just before “F.A.M.E” (f*** ALL MY ENEMIES) was released: “Too much mixtapes.” “Features too much people.”Fall back.” “Get off twitter.”

    ..Yak.. Yak..Yak..

    Chris is a true (wait for it..)”MOTIVATOR”, “COMMANDER” and a WINNER! And, if there’s “ONE thing” Chris needs to do is to stop associating himself with LOSERS: the almost-40-something-year-old Kelly Rowland…!!

    “Loser” | Noun: One with weekly-access, for months-on-end, to 12-Million U.K./European discretionary-spending consumers – as then a X-Factor U.K. sitting judge/mentor of up-and-coming talent, who then only moves a PATHETIC less-than 150-K units of “Here I am”.

    “Bum” | Noun: One who’s lead single: “Motivation” was forced-down our collective throats and which took an eternal FOUR-LONG MONTHS to go platinum!

    “Fail-up” | Colloquialism: One who – “worms her way”, or by use of guile, spin, ‘dark-skin-sista-girl’ guilt – continually fails, but who is THEN offered chance-after-chance-after-chance.

    Real Talk: The one thing that could lessen, if not whole-cut kill, “the buzz” for “FORTUNE” is any continued association with the aforementioned almost-40-something-year-old Kelly Rowland.

    ..And as for me?! Well, after I saw her tour with Chris, in all honesty, it gave me pause, and made me rethink my association with “Team-Breezy”. Because, it WAS the almost-40-something-year-old Kelly Rowland who said:

    “Orlando Bloom, and men who look like him, are T-H-E most beautiful of ALL men.”

    @Shelby Girrrrl knowing Drayas reputation I wouldn’t believe anything she says! and if what you say is true then I think Chris needs to back his girl up a bit more and let them know he is the one insisting on her being around — esp when the stans come for her on twitter! Its not just the fact that they are ALWAYS together its the fact that she seems to have no obvious career or solid education unless it involves Chris directly. Furthermore, did Draya bring her bestfriend to mooch off her new lifestyle like Kae does with Seiko?? Now I hear that she’s his stylist but clearly she’s just another chick on the come-up and if women like Kim K still cant get any respect you best believe karrueche aint getting NO respect at all and I think this girl is actually going to hurt his career… Chris is too young to be wifed up and I dont really mind I mean I’ll still enjoy his musci but clearly its upsetting the fans. But thats just my opinion

Now theres rumours that she is now Chris’s stylist but that has neither been confirmed or denied by either of them so we still dont know. Oh and its common knowledge she’s a drop-out and sacrificed her education to be with Chris. Just do a little research on her and its clear to see she has nothing else going on for her other than Chris so she better pray that they stay together

    @GG I actually agree with you. I think CB younger fans is abandoning him, because of him posting all the pictures of his girlfriend. If you look at all the stars out there Usher, Trey Songz, and others, they don’t promote their girlfriends to their women fans. Their women they date is always in the back ground. We may get a picture of Usher out with his girlfriend, but Usher isn’t tweeting the pictures, knowing that his fan base is women. I think personally CB needs to concentrate on his career and keep his private life private. His young fan girls want to see pictures of him not of his girlfriend. CB never did that with Rihanna, I don’t know whats up with his team lately. It seems like he promoting his relationship more than his album and music.

He needs to promote his music and not this relationship. His private life should remain private its really noones business but the 2 of them are forcing it in ppls faces on twitter and instagram when no normal person actually cares who she is or what shes doing with him. Lets be real now…this girl is a nobody and like you said other artists make sure their nobodies are ALWAYS in the background.

These young girls are fantasizing about being with him and he posting pictures of his girlfriend, like they care. Do you really think they are going to spend their little dollars on his songs because they think he is spending on her, because she usually tweets about them shopping or whatever. You are talking about girls under 17, you expect them not to act like this. During FAME promo, he was about his career and promoting his music with his fans. CB has a right to have a personal life, but I think he should try to keep his personal life personal and not on twitter.

    She's NOT 'sitting on her backside' doing "nothing"! ..Kudos to her, she's making the most of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity..!! Why hadn't Jasmine Saunders nor Draya done the same? I'll tell you why – their hearts weren't into it! They were only into it for what THEY could get OUT of him/it!

    ..Me?! Well, I'd have preferred to see Chris with a "Black-black woman/girl" but hey, all the black women who, since 'Feb 8th 2009', tried to use him: Jasmine Saunders and Draya…!!

    And if Rihanna would've only listened to us, 'us' out here on the blogs – who matter, she'd have NOW been back with Chris and ruling the charts..!! But NO: she listened to Jay-Z and L.A. Reid, and now look at her – Nicki Minaj is moving her off the stage, Rita Orta is now Jay-Z's "latest and greatest", and Rihanna's about to be "the face" of a $450-Million disaster-at-sea: "Battleship"..!!

I loved CB last album, his songs had meaning to them. Deuces, She ain’t you, All Back, and others.CB needs to release a song with a story behind it, something people can feel and relate to it. I would love to hear a beautiful love song from him. I know he is 22 and all he think about is s**, LOL, but I know he experience love and ups and down in a relationship, he should put it in a song.

    So I gave you VIDEO PROOF of her styling someone – a celebrity, and YOU give me..”RUMORS”..?! Please don’t make ME laugh..!!

    “what serious stylist do you know that has time to follow their bf all over the world?”

    Dwade’s stylist followed him to Europe! Rihanna’s stylist used to follow HER all-over the place!

    “Or do you have a portfolio of actual celebs that she styled”

    Maybe she’s only now just beginning? Gotta start somewhere, yes? Now, as Chris’ star again rockets to the heavens, she’ll have more opportunities to style all the more popular folks, logical?

    “LaToya LEFT and went elsewhere to be styled”

    You’re missing the point! ..Never-the-less, we have Latoya, ON VIDEO, being styled by Karreuch Tran (sp?). And her “portfolio of clients” can only now grow..!! She’s now stepping away from being “Chris Brown’s girl” – not that’s a bad thing – I’m sure even Chris wants her to have HER own identity. Chris had never seemed selfish – if anything – totally selfless and willing to let others be great..!!

    But, as I’d said, just think: If Jasmine Saunders would’ve been cool – and not tried to use/disrespect him, think of how..”camera-friendly” a couple THEY could’ve been! Jasmine Saunders and Rihanna are T-H-E biggest fools we now know of since ‘Feb 8th, 2009 Chrianna’ – think of what Chris could’ve meant to Jasmine’s career..?? What an absolute idiot SHE is – Robert Kardashian is, if you didn’t know, BISEXUAL!! That’s why Angela Simmons, after finding out, wanted nothing to do with him!

Furthermore her and Chris are still friends and have both moved on so let her be. The fact that Chris’s album is being pushed back should tell you that something is not right and I believe its the fact that he has begun to force this girl Kae upon his fans when they dont care about her. Now if you want to dig up videos and maybe payslips of Kae’s styling adventures where clients walk out to be styled elsewhere thats fine! I’m just stating my own opinion.

    Usher’s album is out nearly a month before, but that means he’s going to go hard for a number 1 hit. I mean seriously, with all the top notch producers he’s working with, he has to notch another one up. He’s going to go for Urban AND mainstream so it’ll be hard for Chris.

    As for Fortune, the album barely has any buzz around it. Chris is on so many songs as featured artists nowadays that it takes him away from his own singles. Turn Up The Music debuted high, but it keeps falling off every week on Hot 100 while Climax keeps going up. Till I Die and Sweet Love have good production but feel flat and uninspired. He just needs a strong single that pushes him away from all of these nonstop features that do better than his current singles.

    Justin Bieber is more of a non-factor since his fanbase is defined, just like Usher but unlike Bieber, Usher needs to promote his stuff on Urban and when he does, it’ll conflict with whatever 20 songs Chris has on the chart as features or whatever. He dude simply has to much out there and his own songs aren’t up to par.

    Don’t hate Chris, I bought FAME last year and despite me thinking that Graffiti was better, it wasn’t a bad album, but so far Fortune is pretty disappointing. If it’s possible, I’d potentially wish the album was pushed to August so it would have room to breath. I personally thought May was going to be pretty good but July is just too crowded.

    I also honestly thought Usher was coming back too soon and at the wrong time seeing as Alternative Music is making a strong comeback. Hot 100 is very crowded and competitive these days and it’ll be hard for Usher to get another number 1 under these conditions. But with Chris, it’ll be worse as Dance-Pop just isn’t doing as good as it did this time last year or the year before. Meaningful music is making a comeback with Adele, FUN., Gotye, etc. and Usher hopped on that boat with Climax. It’s Chris’ turn but I don’t think it’ll happen with him pushing dubstep and s***.

    WOW!!! Sounds like this person really hates Chris girl. I could care less about his girl because if it was not her it would have been some other chick his fans won’t like. Can’t wait for FORTUNE to hit the stores July 3, 2012

    @virtuoso intellect,

    “MOBWIFE, he may not be MJ but he is USHER that says a whole lot more than a chris brown”

    SO YOU SAY…..YAWN! Unless Usher Raymond can morph into MICHAEL JACKSON you can stop talking. Again, it’s just Usher Raymond stop trying to make him more than he actually is!

    “a chris fan has a lotta nerve saying Usher is a non-factor this era”

    YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY CONFUSED! I never said Usher was or WAS NOT a factor. FRANKLY, I REALLY DON’T GIVE A F*CK! This is a post about Chris Brown and I just don’t care about Usher. He’s not a bad artist, I just DON’T CARE about him EITHER WAY!

    “remind me again who is pushing back release dates”

    Sure “sweetie” its RCA, his RECORD LABEL. Chris Brown would have released his CD in March via the web and said screw it along time ago! RCA is a NEW SITUATION for him. I’m sure he has to learn the ropes with this new company as you would on a new job! It doesn’t matter his fans will support him regardless!

    “Poor Amy Winehouse was booed live on air for her well-deserved 5 grammys.”

    YOU SOUND LIKE A DAMN FOOL! Amy Received what she EARNED JUST LIKE CHRIS BROWN DID and was celebrated. No one went on a twitter, blog, TV, & Radio a campaign for DAYS after-the-fact aganist Amy inehouse as they did against Chris Brown so STFU! And that’s a damn lie, SERIAL ABUSERS Eminem (beat wife Kim for years) & Glen Campbell (beat the hell out of Tanya Tucker for years) were given Grammys for their nonsense called music, yet no on questioned their Grammy wins and celebrated them to the fullest for inning! Don’t run that “black white asian italian latino” BULL on me! There is a difference in treatment!

    ***FORTUNE JULY 3, 2012 HATERS……GET READY FOR IT! SMOOCHES

    AGAIN I BLAME @RCA.

    THIS PUSH BACK WAS BY DESIGN TO GIVE USHER RAYMOND A CHANCE TO SHINE NOW THAT I KNOW HE TOO IS RELEASING MUSIC IN JUNE. They are still on the same label and gets top billing over there! I will be happy when Chris Brown’s contract ends and he moves to a rival company! I mean everyone is disappointed as they had planned to purchase his CD in May 8 BUT WE NOW SEE THE SCHEME BEING HATCHED AGAINST HIM! It’s cool “tho” he’s still going to SLAY!

    @GG re: April 22, 2012 at 2:15 pm –

    “Its actually a fact not a rumour that shes a styling assistant for Ugo Moezie do a quick search on google.”

    I don’t have to – AND I WON’T! I JUST SAW, WITH MY OWN TWO NO-GLASSES-REQUIRED EYES Karreuche Tran (sp? gotta learn how to spell her name) STYLE LATOYA LUCKETT. And logically, the longer she stays in the “styling game” the longer she’ll have access to celebrity clientele who can THEN only help her “career in styling”.

    “Clearly you are stanning for a nobody”

    And who might THAT be..?! ..SPEAK UP..!!

    “and pls dont drag Rihanna into this – tell me how shes the fool when that girl is selling out worldwide tours and dropping albums which dont get pushed back several times.?”

    …Ahh.. Let’s talk about how many #1 Albums “The Great” Rihanna has! “Sold-Out Worldwide Tours”..?! Do you mean like the time y’all “Camp-Fenty” said she “sold out” NYC’s Madison Square Garden, only then, after a few “clicks of the mouse” we found a multitude of cheap AND expensive, front-row and nose-bleed tickets..?! P-U-L-EASE.. Rihanna gives away her tickets just before her show starts, and you-all THEN say: “look at how much people turned out!” Rihanna’s very first 2010 tour was to be in Oregon, or some other north west state and the ticket sales were so low, y’all had to cancel her show. Then there’s the Atlanta show which was cancelled – etc, etc, etc,.. So stop with the spin, hysteria, lies and half-truths..!!

    “Furthermore her and Chris are still friends and have both moved on so let her be.”

    Please, the b**** is a ‘NO-GOOD BUM’ and toxic to be near! Just you ask Matt Kemp! “Before Rihanna”, Matt Kemp was an up-and-coming almost-MLB Allstar Baseball Player, who just-then signed a 10-Million 2-yr deal with the L.A. Dodgers. THEN, late 2009/early 2010, he was pictured on that boat in Mexico with Rihanna, and they then made it “official”. But as soon as THAT happened, and the 2010 MLB season began, he then began to slump, and slump he did BADLY. So “badly” that the Dodgers wanted to trade, or yet-worse, demote him to the minor leagues – “People Magazine” took notice: //www.people.com/people/article/0,,20397717,00.html

    ..Then came that late 2010 video of Matt Kemp picking up groupies outside that L.A. club: no more Riri/Matt. Best thing for Matt Kemp and his career, really! With “toxic Rihanna” not around, Matt Kemp AGAIN found his “pre-Rihanna” form and in 2011 became an MLB Allstar, just missed out, being voted 2nd place to Ryan Braun, on being the league’s MVP. The Dodgers JUST signed him to a NEW long-term multi-million dollar contract. Long-story short: Rihanna is toxic. She did it to Chris, and THEN to Matt Kemp..!! There’s just something dark, malevolent, and all-pervasive-evil about Rihanna!

    “The fact that Chris’s album is being pushed back should tell you that something is not right and I believe its the fact that he has begun to force this girl Kae upon his fans when they dont care about her.”

    ^^What a load of steaming b*******!! “WE”, Team-Breezy knew ALL about Kae before “F.A.M.E”..!! We knew about her BEFORE we – all 19,000 strong – went to see him for MSNBC’S Summer Concert Series and then set the live attendance record! If there’s anything his fans didn’t like, was/is the idea of him collaborating – or getting back – with Rihanna!! IT’S RIHANNA WHO HIS FANS HATE, NOT KARREUCHE TRAN..!! IT WAS RIHANNA WHO WENT ON NATIONAL TV AND SAID: “HE HAD NO SOUL IN HIS EYES!”

    ..RIHANNA IS “THE TEAM BREEZY MORTAL ENEMY”, NOT KARREUCHE TRAN..!! What I think is that, if anything, this “delay”, is him wanting to let the air “clear” and have folks forget that they did that collab altogether..!! As her record shows: EVERY MAN WHO CONSORTS WITH RIHANNA SUFFERS BADLY..!!

    “Now if you want to dig up videos and maybe payslips of Kae’s styling adventures where clients walk out to be styled elsewhere thats fine! I’m just stating my own opinion.”

    BUT I JUST DID..!! While YOU “state your opinions,” I just gave you HARD PHYSICAL EVIDENCE: A VIDEO – which you, due to YOUR “stanning” had just discarded!

    Aww, still pressed I see. First of all, the movie didn’t cost 450M. Only bitter ass CB stans believe your unsubstantiated BS. The production budget was half of that. Universal lined up over 50M in corporate tie ins and promo sponsors before the movie even dropped.

    Oh and in case you were wondering, Battleship has crossed the 100M in only ten days, and it hasn’t even opened in the US yet.

    http://www.deadline.com/2012/04/battleship-past-100m-foreign-box-office/

    The moviie is going to recoup its 200M-250M production budget from overseas box office within the next few weeks without the US premiere.

    Nicki and Rita coming for Rihanna , Ri’s movie flopping. . . LMFAO yeah ok, whatever. Rihanna has nothing to do with CB pushing back his s***, and you will deal.

Silly me, but the fact remains: reading IS fundamental..!! And it was Rihanna who said that she’s a High School drop-out, right? “Don’t have time for a GED,” isn’t that what your fave had said? Yup!

    @XYZ Actually There is a whole lot of team Breezy following Rihanna and all of the navy don’t hate CB. Most of his fans were attacking him last night for posting that picture of Kae, not the Navy. To be honest I love Birthday Cake better than all his songs he released, I like Turn up the music, but I like Birthday Cake more, love the beat and its hot and I am a huge CB fan bought 10 FAME CD’s last year. So if Rihanna was the reason for his problems than why did Birthday Cake shoot up the charts to #2 on the Billboard, faster than any song without a single release. I think CB needs to go back releasing fire, like he did last year.

    Now wants to buy this kids album is why it was pushed back, A-ha no momentum, no hype, i feel like Chris brown and Rihanna ‘s team have been working together behind the scenes for years now a-la every time Rihanna droped a video , Chris brown would drop a video or vice -versa (see rated r and Grafitti era

    But now those both management teams are clearly working together except it backfired when they released those singles because after the initial shock the public didn’t give a f*** and wrote both of them off

    Even though Fame didnt sale a millions copies the album at least had some amount of buzz

    No one cares this time around the music is…meh

    and he knows what his fanbase is and how to market himself to all the demographics that check for his music

    The “Battleship” final-get-to-theater cost will be $450-Million. Currently, the cost is $250-Million. Initially, “Battleship” had cost $200-Million to produce. And $50-Million was just added to the promotion budget. But the “FINAL” cost, that is, P/A (Prints and Advertising) costs aren’t yet known, but currently stand at $450-Million.

And in order for ‘B’ship’ to NOT be considered a failure, it’ll have to return 1.4 X ‘known costs’ = 1.4 X $450-Million = $630-Million. <<—again, "Battleship" must return OVER 1/2 BILLION DOLLARS NOT TO BE A FAILURE..!! http://www.deadline.com/2011/09/kagan-the-help-is-the-most-profitable-film-from-a-month-with-few-successes

    And with the growing bad reviews and bad-Battleship-is-a-Transformers-rippoff-word-of-mouth it's now getting, I seriously doubt 'B'ship' will do $135-Million U.S. !!

    I actually think if CB would promote more and I don’t know what direction he was going with this album. He released Strip from his mixed tape and I don’t know who told him that song was a lead single, because to me it isn’t really a top single. Turn up the Music did a little better than Yeah 3x on the chart, it charted at number #10 and Yeah 3x charted at #12. But like last year CB released Look at me now, which was fire off back and now he released that song with Wiz and Big Sean which is ok to me. Last year he released She ain’t you, was a great song, I love that song, Whats next for him to release. I think CB needs to get back to focusing on his music and put out some fire. Personally it seems like he is promoting KMAC, Karrueche and the others in CBE. I personally think he should’ve waited to help his friends out until he get another platinum album and back on top like 3 years ago.

A style/type of music in which he can be KING of cause he will never be the KING OF POP that’s MICHAEL JACKSON, the KING OF R&B that’s R.

    ok what’s your point honey? whether u call Usher king or not, he is better and more successful than Chris in every way possible. dont make me break it down for u. u know go the ageism route ok but “old” Usher is selling out more arenas than vocally-prepubscent Chris so i guess the ladies are into “old”. Frankly the only thing old is Chris’ last hot 100 no1 albeit trend-biting singles

    If Chris Brown decides to sing Pitbull or FloRida songs, he’ll get Pitbull or FloRida album sales. Simple as that.

    I like “Turn Up The Music” but I won’t buy 12 songs like that one.

    When Usher was 23, he released “U remind me” and “U got it bad”, two of his greatest songs. I don’t mind Chris being in love with Karwash but can he tell us love stories like he used to? All that s** thing doesn’t work for him, nobody wants to hear that all the dam* time.

    @ST&D

    According to whom, you? You must have me confused with one of your little mindless minions dumb enough to believe half the s*** you type. Battleship wasn’t even mentioned in the article you linked to, and the overwhelming majority of the films mentioned in that article didn’t make over 100M in ten days. Battleship is projected to gross 350M overseas, and it’s on track to do that and then some. It’s pointless talking about shadowy promo/production rubrics for films that didn’t even come close to grossing the type of money at the box office in ten weeks, that Battleship has grossed in ten days. Post your receipt with the “final-get –to-theater cost” for BATTLESHIP, so we can all see it. If not, sit down.

    Once again, you have no evidence proving what the promo budget for Battleship was. As usual, you’re making up s***. Battleship still has overseas markets that it hasn’t opened in yet, so prepare for more grosses and more #1 box office openings before May 18th (US premiere). As for the extra 50M in promo, I already explained that.

    Do you know how annoying it is to ready someone who screams atop their lungs?! No, you don’t..!! ..Well, let me tell you, it’s very difficult.

    LAX, you see, unlike your fellow “Camp-Fenty-ites/Rihanna Navy”: “GG” and “MARI”, I JUST L-O-V-E TO READ! I’ll even hack my way through the overgrowth and read all your comments!! True-True!

    ..Look, the way I see it, there’s still much to learn from the one-cell amoeba, right?

    I don’t know why people insist on going back and forth to prove a point. Usher and Chris Brown are great entertainer.. both will do great… It is amazing the same 6 or 7 people comment over and over again making this 117 comments. You people stay giving this site hints.. Sam is living it up… Whenever there is something negative about Chris or if Chris vs someone he gets lots of comments. Its sad that you people feed off of the negative. Chris is doing great!! No matter what you 6 or 7 people say. He traveling, doing mega concerts, morning tv shows, movies, writing, directing, award shows, and so on… you people are still sitting behind a computer typing BSing. Go out and live.

    Also since they are both on the same label… Chances are RCA is doing the same as Jive did last year with Britney… Both will debut at #1… Giving RCA more bragging points.. Think… Duh! Record label do not want to lose money… it is a win-win situation from both artist.. Usher appeals to older crowd and Chris appeal to younger crowd.

    _____________

    Takers made 100mil or better even though it cost $19-20mil to make. So the movie made it’s money back 5 times or more over. Lets see if Battleship can make a 5 times or more over their $250mil plut cost to make.

    @MARI re: April 22, 2012 at 4:44 pm –

    Let us put aside sophomoric name-calling for the moment, shall we?

    ..I’ll entertain any logical question posed! That said – let us agree that the “metric” as used by Keegan SNL, and referenced by deadline is indeed…”Industry Standard”, yes? (http://www.deadline.com/2011/09/kagan-the-help-is-the-most-profitable-film-from-a-month-with-few-successes/) Therefore: 1.4 X ‘known costs’ = on-the-ball/not-a-failure. And, 1.75 X ‘known costs’ = Success!

    ..But what IS included in that article, that which is vitally important is: “which don’t include distribution fees, overhead, interest, profit participation, and residuals”

    Now, let us use the now familiar-equal-to-Battleship-in-production-budget $200-M “John Carter” as reference, agreed?

    “‘John Cater’ cost Disney $350-Million to Produce AND to Market” (//www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/john-carter-box-office-disney-flop-298610) ‘JC’ had cost $200-Million to actually make, and $150-Million in final “bring-to-theater-costs”. Now, go and see how many more places “Battleship” is running overseas, and then compare the two. You’ll see that “Battleship” is running in as many places – on as much screens: “Battleship, currently 50-countries. “John Carter” showed in 54-countries.

    ..And here’s what you’d neglected to included in that deadline article: “The pressure is on for the film to do well in the 50 territories where it’s now open — including China and Russia — because of its advance bad buzz and very expensive budget. (The studio claims the cost was $209M while outside sources say $250M.)” deadline(dotcom)/hollywood/

    ..Now, that “outside sources say $250-Million,” does NOT include the just added $50-Million, just-included to the marketing budget. So, as it currently stands, “Battleship” has a “real” cost of $300-Million – NOT INCLUDING P/A from overseas, OR the North America!

    The FINAL get to theater costs = Production Budget + P/A (Prints And Advertising). the-numbers(dotcom)/glossary.php: “The average P&A budget for a major studio release was $34.5 million the last time the MPAA reported the figure in 2006 (spends are generally believed to have risen since then).costs for a film”
    “Battleship” is no “major release” it’s a “big tent-pole blockbuster” as was “John Carter”, with a P/A to match!

    ..So let’s use “old, ordinary-film-not-big-tent-pole-blockbuster p/a numbers” regarding ‘B’ship’: “outside sources $250-Milliion production budget” + “just added $50-Million to already-existing-but-not-factored-in p/a budget” + “old 2006, not-blockbuster $34.5-Million p/a cost” = $334.5-Million.

    So using Deadline’s own kagan SNL metric of failure: 1.4 X “known costs” = 1.4 X $334.5-Million = $468.3-Million has to be made in order for “Battleship” NOT TO BE A FAILURE..!! Currently Deadline projects $300-M overseas, and $125-Million domestic, so 300 + 125 = $425-Million World Wide. $468.3-Million > $425-Million, yes?

    ..And as I said, this does NOT include the cost of getting “Battleship” to-can-be-now-seen-on-overseas screens: P/A overseas cost in 50-countries!! And like I sad, for “John Carter” the P/A cost ALONE was $150-Million!!

What kind of work does Usher have to do on his CD before RCA will release it? They should have released this CD on May 8! This delay is to aid another artist not Chris!

    @Mobwife, It really doesn’t matter, I will always support CB even if I don’t like some of the songs. Love him. Off the subject I went to see Think Like a man the other day, CB did so good, I wish they would give him bigger roles. He probably will do good in a romantic comedy, because he is naturally funny in real life. Kevin Hart is a nut, had me laughing through the movie. I see this movie brought out a whole lot of couples, I went with my boyfriend, he knows how much I love CB. He actually gets jealous sometimes. I actually lie about who I am researching on the computer. I always telling that I am shopping for shows, LOL, but he knows who I am searching on the web.

    Could you please post a link? I just checked 'deadline' and this was all I got regarding the matter: "My sources project the film could steam past $300M foreign box office based on current trends." <–http://www.deadline.com/?s=Battleship

    As I'd said in my previous comment:

    And, I might add "Battleship" is no "major studio release". It's a "big tent pole blockbuster", so that old, from 2006, $34.5-Million is very, very, very lowball! That said, let's still use it to as our total P/A cost…

    1.) $250-Million production budget.
    2.) $50-Million just-added-to-promotion.
    3.) $34.5-Million, though old, from 2006, and for an average movie, p/a.

    Total of $334.5-Million. Now, mind you this does NOT include include distribution fees, overhead, interest, profit participation, and residuals. So, that said, using Kegan SNL's Metric of 1.4 X known costs = 1.4 X 334.5-Million = $468.3-Million must be earned NOT to be considered a failure!

    Currently, referencing deadline and boxoffice the foreign returns are projected to be $300-Million, and the U.S. returns at $125-Million = $425-Million. $468.3 – $425 = $43.3-Million in-the-red!

    JUST THE FACTS..

    ..That’ll setting once-and-for-all all the Usher-better-than Chris drivel:

    Usher was a 26-y/o, back in 2004, when “Confessions” was released.
    Usher is a NOW a 33-y/o, who was only seen last year, while onstage in Europe, having to end-early, an actual concert, due to…”exhaustion”.

    Chris Brown is a spritely 22-y/o with boundless energies, and most of all – TIME to make mistakes, grow, and THEN learn from them. Lest we forget he has a highly-mobile, and ‘knee-jerk reactionary’ fan-base..!!

    NO ARTIST CAN NOW SELL AS THEY ONCE HAD: ITunes, Digital Piracy – whatever! If “Thriller” was released today, it’d have NOT sold 50-Million WW. If Adelene’s “21″ was released..say 8-years ago, it’d have sold FAR more than that now 10-Million in-total WW.

    Chris Brown has accomplished MORE than Usher as a 22-y/o:

    1.) Chris Brown is the undisputed BEST DANCER currently to walk the Pop-culture landscape.
    2.) Chris Brown is currently the undisputed BEST SHOWMAN to set-foot on any stage.
    3.) What TV/Cable Award/Entertainment shows had Usher closed, or appeared in that drew an average 3.0 Neilsen?
    4.) Chris’ DWTS appearance drew a still-record-standing 19-Million viewers.
    5.) Chris Brown has added to his pedigree: co-star, who had the longest screen-face-time, of a #1-Movie – “TAKERS” – which has returned upwards of, by now, $100-Million. He also was prominent in said film’s marketing/promotion, AND was its EXECUTIVE PRODUCER – AS A 20-Y/O..!!

    So let us NOW stop the foolish, deflecting “Usher vs. Chris” arguments: Usher HAD his time. Chris is only NOW j-u-s-t beginning to come into his!

    *Meh..* Album delay..?! Who cares..?! If any, this’ll give him time to “rev-up” Team-Breezy to a fever-pitch.. “They” said his fans would abandon him. “They” said no one ever-before had ever gone through such a thing (Feb 8th, 2009 Chrianna) and survived – “they” said he was FINISHED..!! “They” said “F.A.M.E” would flop. “They” sald “Takers” would flop, as all the white cast-member – AND ZOE SALDANA – wanted nothing to do with the film; sure proved “them” wrong! “They” sure talk alot, but those who really count – ALL OF US HERE, OUT ON THE BLOGS – weren’t listening to “them” – f*** OPRAH! f*** TYRA BANKS! f*** JAY-Z! f*** HARVEY LEVIN! ..f***-ALL-”THEM”..!!

    I’m glad to see the Team-Breezy haters are now coming out of the wood-work. You’re, only again, stoking the “US-VERSUS-THEM” fires that had propelled Chris BACK again on top!

    @XYZ, I know you don’t like Rihanna, but I heard good things about her acting. I will be checking her movie out. I like to support black Artist in movies. I hope her movie don’t flop. But the good news is CB movie will be number 1, which is really good. Glad to see so many people went out to support the movie. I live in the suburbs and they rarely play black movies, and I was surprise that they were playing this movie and there was a nice turn out for CB movie. Will Packer movies always seems to go number #1. I think CB was in almost all of his movies except for the one with Beyonce and Idris.

    Chris is good, but Usher is in another league. The Breezy stans are cluless. Usher is young also, but he’s mature. His new song is very fresh and far from generic. He has a huge following . When you are featured on too many singles that isn’t always good.

    Usher and CB comparisms aren’t necessary, since they didn’t come out around the same time. But if they must be compared, Usher at 22 wasn’t really as popular as CB is at 22. But by 2004 at 26, Usher accomplished things that I can’t imagine CB ever accomplishing; his first #1 album, which sold over a million in the 1st week and eventually went diamond, Usher achieved 4 #1 singles in that same year, etc.
    Vocally, CB hasn’t reached Usher’s level yet, and it’s very unlikely that he will ever be as vocally talented as Usher(not saying that Usher is the greatest, but he can hold his own vocally). CB has the voice of a child sometimes. In dancing, I don’t care who does it better, because at the end of the day, people buy the record even before videos are released. The vocals are more important the dancing, so Usher is a better vocalist. CB isn’t even on Trey Songz’s or Ne-Yo’s level vocally. Even Mario can sing better than CB

    He better do something because all these push backs are gonna make people forget about the Cd because of all the upcoming releases. (Lil Twist, Justin Bieber, Brandy, Mary J. Blidge, Usher..exc..) I’m saying, he has no reason for the push back. He stays in the studio and has been recording since May 2011 because if you remember, he first said that it would be a double disk, F.A.M.E. AND Fortune… then he just did F.A.M.E. Then he said fortune would be the second half released 6 months prior to F.A.M.E., in September because F.A.M.E. was released in March. Then Kevin McCall said a December date, then they switched it to the first quarter of 2012. Then Chris decided to do it in March again, because F.A.M.E. was released in March and it would be some kind of anniversary. That was the OFFICIAL DATE! Then he pushed it back to May to release it and few days before or after his B-Day (IDK his B-day) so the sales would be like a B-day gift. He even said on twitter something like “i was born May 5th (i think), Fortune is his 5 album and exc..” NOW WE GET IT IN JULY!! Like WTF! What could we possibly have to wait on? He keep releasing all these DAMN song. What is he gonna release the entire Cd before the release. I wou;dn’t be surprised if it leaked!! If this CD don’t make me have an orgasm every time i hear it, imma find him and chop what enables HIM to have orgasms..because we’ve been waiting over a year for this CD that you just keep promising!

    You-all said “F.A.M.E” would also flop! You-all said “Takers” would flop! You-all even said, after liar, no-talent hack Rihanna had done spreading her lies that his career was finished.

    ..But there’s just one thing: “WE”, the ones who REALLY matter: the ones who reach for our credit cards, WE don’t give a damn what YOU, or Oprah, Tyra, Harvey Levin said. f***…YOU…ALL..!!

    At the very least, Chris has expanded far-beyond past his ‘F.A.M.E’ base. Unlike ‘Rihanna’s singles-buying base, we’ll support OURS..!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

    I still think it’s stupid to compare Usher and Chris Brown. Chris Brown still needs to grow however i do think that pushing back this album is a good idea considering that every song on the radio he is ft on. i would love it if Chris went the urban route and added his Pop songs as CD fillers. I think at this point everybody wants to hear the soulful Chris Brown.

    @KAYLA re: April 23, 2012 at 3:19 am –

    “where were yall went Grafitti (his best CD to date) was released because that got no where”

    Kayla, I purchased some 10 physical copies (CDs), and hundreds of dollars worth of “Graffiti” singles! You see, the rest of “Team-Breezy” was still ‘caught-up’ in the ‘web of lies and deceit’ that Oprah Winfrey, Tyra Banks, and Harvey Levin had then spun to trap the unaware and weary..

    ..BUT YOURS TRULY KNEW BETTER:

    “Sources say Rihanna was the first one to strike — slapping and striking Brown “numerous times” while he was driving, after seeing the text message from another woman. And Rihanna was fighting Brown. We’re told much of this is reflected in the official police report based on what Rihanna told cops.”
    http://www.tmz.com/2009/03/09/brown-wants-misdemeanor-plea-no-jail-time/

    “what did you do, support his f****** crazed rampage on good morning america, some damn fans you are”

    Absolutely! And you wanna know what else I did? ..YOU DO..?? ..Well, I fell to my knees and pleaded, beseeched with/to ‘Lord God On High’ to have Robyn Roberts’ cancer revisit her, and to then make her exit from this world a lengthy and tortuous one!

    “i was basically saying that people are gonna be more focused on those albums if he keeps pushing it back”

    (again..) What does the “others” you’d mentioned have to do with Chris, or ‘Team-Breezy’..?! East Is East, West Is West: we couldn’t care less what you, or “others” think, or are doing, and, I guess, the reciprocate in return. It’s either “us or them “people”, and we have OUR agenda, and you’ll, I guess, have yours!

    “because we’ll have heard almost everything off the album if he keeps releasing this “free” music…it won’t be new”

    Had Chris released all the tracks from ‘FORTUNE’? If not, then how can you make your statement – what is it based on? If you have a viable link to a site that has published the track list from “Fortune”, then feel free to post it, K?

    “and when did i name Oprah, Tyra or anyone else you named…clearly you are worried about what they’ll say about your DOWN-LOW, anger issued, “i wanna be different but i’m not” FAV!!!”

    ^^WARNING! WARNING! — NON SEQUITUR ALERT! — WARNING! WARNING!!

    “clearly he doesn’t understand the term “interview””

    There’s an “interview”, an “ambush interview”, and then there’s the “gotcha interview”. GMA, Robin Roberts in particular, practices a particularly virulent strain of “gotcha journalism”. But it’s of little consequence, because, if you’d notice, immediately after that interview, a ’19,000-strong Team-Breezy contingent’ went to support our boy at that NBC Summer Concert Series, which set a still-standing live-attendance record! So you can tell Robin Roberts to chew on THAT when she’s counting the saline-chemo therapy drips when she’s bedridden and bouncing between this world and the next..

    “i wish Rihanna would just tell the truth to what REALLY went down and stop keeping it in because it WILL erupt someday..altho I already know and the clues are in his music alot”

    K, this tells me much: you weren’t really paying attention, and/or you just ate-up the “put-your-brain-to-sleep” slop Tyra Banks, Oprah Winfrey, and Harvey Levin then spoon-fed the masses. But let me again reference TMZ’s very-own material/sources on the “Feb 8th, 2009 Chrianna” matter (again):

    “Sources say Rihanna was the first one to strike — slapping and striking Brown “numerous times” while he was driving, after seeing the text message from another woman. And Rihanna was fighting Brown. We’re told much of this is reflected in the official police report based on what Rihanna told cops.”
    tmz(dotcom)/2009/03/09/brown-wants-misdemeanor-plea-no-jail-time/

    “…anyways, so yeah…hopefully Team Breezy is there for this CD because it’s gettin kind of old…”

    It’s “getting old” – TO YOU!! “You” were never “Team-Breezy” to begin with – if you were, you’d have never “wished for Rihanna to tell the truth” because you’d had ALREADY knew what happened! That said, if “YOU” find that it’s “getting old” then go support someone else – leave us to our devices. We were fine BEFORE you, we’ll be just ‘peachy keen’ AFTER you..!!

    Chris is good, but Usher is in another league. The Breezy stans are cluless. Usher is young also, but he’s mature. His new song is very fresh and far from generic. He has a huge following . When you are featured on too many singles that isn’t always good.

    HA HA HA HA HA :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

    I am going to have to stop clicking on this link! The pure comedy I keep reading and the laughter that ensues is going to get me fired! LOL :-)

    Usher Raymond at 33, the former “happily” married man and father of two ADORABLE young sons should be “mature”! If age, a failed marriage, and fatherhood doesn’t cause you to take inventory of your life and make a change, then WHAT WILL?

    Now, by featured on too many singles do you mean like:
    David Guetta – Without You ft. Usher
    Romeo Santos Feat. Usher – Promise
    Justin Bieber – First Dance ft.Usher
    Justin Bieber – Somebody To Love Remix ft. Usher
    Gucci Mane – Spotlight ft.Usher
    DJ Khaled – Fed Up ft.Usher
    Babyface- Bedtime ft.Usher

    Listen, I like Usher but his STANS are tad crazy! They are forever in a Chris Brown post running over Chris. We all know that both Chris and Usher are student’s of Michael Jackson and therefore have some similarities but geez come on. Both are very talented and appeal to similar and different groups. Why can’t we just leave it at that?

    MWAH, blowing kisses at you for this one! :-)

    I still look at that SKANK with a side-eye glance after she had the nerve to mistreat Chris while constantly coddling ACTUAL MEN WHO TRULY ABUSE WOMEN like Charlie Sheen (shot Kelly Preston, strangled Denise Richards, stabbed Brook Muller) and Sean Penn (beat wives Robin Wright and POP ICON Madonna)!

    I feel the same why about that no good, low-down former CRACK SMOKER & PROSITUTE Oprah Windfrey (see Kitty Kelly). She ran 2-year-old Chris Brown completely over while fawning over ADULT p********* like Jerry Seinfeld (caught opening SCREWING 17-year-old high school student) and WIFE BEATERS like so-called folk legend James Taylor (beat the hell out of folk singer Carly Simon for many years). The b*tch is sickening I’m glad her network is failing!

    @the one

    Listen, you’re incapable of “shuting me down”! And this is a Chris Brown post so you’re DAMN RIGHT I’m going to “run my mouth” in defense of my boy (f*ck what you think or have to say about it)! AGAIN, for those in the crowd who obviously suffer from LEARNING DEFICITS, I don’t give a damn about Usher Raymond one way or another. His stats are irrelevant to me. Whatever he has achieved in his many years (18 years to be exact) in the music industry since his 1994 debut CD, “Usher”, FINE…BLAH, BLAH, BLAH…..Again, it has nothing to do with Chris Brown and his 6 years in the music industry! Shouldn’t you achieve in 18 years or trying? *Kanye shrug* ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Wait did you say Chris Brown doesn’t sell out “ARENAS”…wow you really don’t know what you are talking about do you?..LMAO

    LOL, dear I don’t need to “the others” to validate what I have to say! You ppl keep draggng up Usher’s name as a viable competitor to CB as if he’s MICHAEL JACKSON ! If you want to compare stats then yes let’s do! I’ll dredge up the KING’s and toss up Usher’s! In Usher’s 18 years in the music industry, NOTHING HE HAS DONE CAN COMPARE to MJ so “stick a sock in it”!

    All this foolishness about you trying to ” READ ME” ha ha ha….you’d come out better READING A BOOK!
