* TraumaticHaircut: If the scene shown in''The New Edition Story'' is to be believed, Bobby's famous "WesternAnimation/Gumby" haircut happened totally by accident. Apparently, during the filming of "Every Little Step"'s music video, Bobby's barber, who was too busy flirting with the girls at the shoot, accidentally cut a chunk of his flat top off at an angle. Bobby was pissed, but he only had a few minutes before the shoot was supposed to start, so his barber hastily cut the rest of his flat top to match the slanted piece.

* SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll: Up until Music/ChrisBrown took the title in recent years, Bobby was ''the'' example of this trope in R&B, eventually becoming known as "R&B's Bad Boy".

Brown laid low for a better part of a year working on what eventually became ''Don't Be Cruel''. Working with storied hitmakers such as [=LaFace=], and Teddy Riley, the album adopted the sound of a new style of R&B: NewJackSwing. Released on June 20, 1988 (directly competing with New Edition's ''Heart Break'', which was released ''the very same day'', no less), the album proved to be Brown's breakthrough. It peaked at number one on both the Billboard pop and R&B charts for six and eleven non-consecutive weeks, respectively,[[note]] ''Don't Be Cruel'' had it's pop chart streak temporarily interrupted by Music/GunsNRoses' ''Appitite For Destruction'' in February 1989, before they knocked it off the top spot for good in March alongside Debbie Gibson's ''Electric Youth'', and the album popped in and out of the R&B chart's top spot multiple times, directly competing with releases from Freddie Jackson, Music/PublicEnemy and Music/MCHammer.[[/note]] and spawned five Top Ten pop hits, including the number-one single "My Prerogative". Brown was nominated for numerous American Music Awards, Grammys and Soul Train Awards, and was also featured in ''[[{{Franchise/Ghostbusters}} Ghostbusters II]]'' and it's soundtrack, giving him a sixth pop hit with "On Our Own", which was only stopped from reaching number-one by {{Music/Prince}}'s "[[{{Film/Batman}} Batdance]]" and Music/RichardMarx's "Right Here". In between all of this, Brown embarked on 120 day would tour to promote his album. he quickly gained a reputation as R&B's resident bad boy, as he often simulated performing sexual acts during his live shows, which often got him in trouble with police.
