It’s been a busy past few days for singer Chris Brown. Not only was he out promoting his new album, but he has also been fielding countless questions about a leaked nude photo of him that’s been making serious rounds on the internet.
For many, the timing of the leaked photo was curious, considering its proximity to Brown’s album release. The singer, however, took to the offensive in an attempt to bat down rumors that he was responsible for his “exposure.”
“Let me be honest with you. I didn’t want to put no pictures out; that’s not my intention. A lot of people were saying, ‘Yo, he leaked the pictures; he was trying to get promotion.’ For me, I was always a singer, so unless I’m planning on trying to do porn, I don’t think I’d want to just leak my wang out to the world before my album comes out,” he shared with MTV. “It was disappointing to me that it was out, because I was like, ‘Man, now it’s gonna [look like] a gimmick behind it,’ and I don’t want a gimmick behind anything that I’m doing.”
Gimmick or not, Brown’s new album, F.A.M.E., hits stores this Tuesday. Let’s see if his record sales rise as a result of the picture. –djr
