36 Controversial Pop Star Projects

From PSAs to Photo Leaks, Chris Brown Controversies Run Rampant

— November 29, 2012 — Naughty
Earlier this week, Chris Brown added yet another ridiculous chapter to the book of “Chris Brown Controversies” that have dominated the 23-year-old singer’s career since the night of February 8, 2009 when he turned himself into authorities for assaulting his pop megastar girlfriend Rihanna.

On Sunday night, comedian and writer Jenny Johnson directed an insult at the pop star over Twitter. Brown responded with a series of vulgar and petulant tweets aimed at the 33-year-old former news producer, immediately garnering the collective disgust of the Internet and media at large. In this collection of Chris Brown controversies, some of his previous behavioral infractions, as well as ad campaigns featuring Rihanna and Ron English (who designed the cover for Brown's 2011 release, F.A.M.E.) are outlined.

Despite his inability to avoid trouble, this series of Chris Brown controversies also showcases the 23-year-old doing what he does best: dancing and creating catchy songs. Sit back and enjoy the best and worst from one of pop culture's most reviled and beloved artists.
