Music: Chris Brown

"Yeah, girls generally fail to be loyal if you call them "hoes", Chris. Or if you punch them."

Christopher Maurice Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer/rapper. He exploded on the music scene when he was just 15 years old, scoring a number one hit "Run It!" from his first self-titled album and is considered to be one of the singers to claim Michael Jackson's "King of Pop" title. His Hip Hop-infused R&B style and dance moves made him a perfect teen heartthrob.

He came under heavy scrutiny and derision due to his Domestic Abuse incident with then-girlfriend, pop singer Rihanna in 2009. He was sentenced to community service and is a convicted felon. His popularity and sales took a hit, and much of 2009-2011 was spent rebuilding his image, with the occasional slip-up. It paid off; he scored a number one hit on the U.S. R&B charts with Deuces in 2010 and scored a number one album called F.A.M.E. in 2011 on the Billboard 200 charts, for which he received a Grammy award win in 2012. Unfortunately, his life and career continued to take a turn for the worse with more violent incidents (including fights with Drake and Frank Ocean), a messy love triangle with Rihanna and Karrueche Tran, and more arrests and trips to rehab. Despite (or in spite of) all this, he's still one of the more notable and popular R&B/Pop artists coming out of the Turn of the Millennium.
