Chris Brown Explains Why He Won’t Be Performing At Super Bowl



It looks like Chris Brown believes his past will continue to haunt him. The superstar singer has amassed success that newcomers only dream of. However, some still wrestle with the decisions he has made and how they have affected his present and future. By now, most are familiar with Brown’s greatest personal and professional scandal: physically assaulting Rihanna just ahead of the 2009 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. After photos of the “Umbrella” singer’s injuries were shared, Brown’s career hung in the balance.

Yet, Breezy has bounced back. He’s had several sold-out tours, reached No. 1 on the charts, and his dedicated fanbase supported him at every turn. After Rihanna took to the Super Bowl halftime show as her official return to the stage, Brown was inundated with messages about his ex-girlfriend. He seemingly gave her a positive shout-out and answered a fan’s question about his turn at the big game.

“When are you [performing] at the Super Bowl we need you at the next one!!!” a fan commented under the singer’s post. Brown answered, “Never shawty.. American media AINT FA me. Rather be where I’m welcomed.” This comes months after it was rumored that Brown’s American Music Awards tribute to Michael Jackson was axed at the last minute. It was a performance that was reportedly also set to feature Ciara. Rehearsal footage was later shared on social media.

Meanwhile, Brown’s prior controversy with Rihanna hasn’t been his only hiccup. There have been several lawsuits and allegations of sexual misconduct—and the singer has denied each as they have arisen. In 2017, Brown’s ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran was granted a restraining order after alleging he abused her. Regardless of his past, Brown’s fans have agreed that he should go where he’s appreciated.

Conversations about the singer’s indiscretions have also been brought up during conversations about his legacy. There are those that argue Brown should be referred to as the King of Pop, taking the crown from the late-great Michael Jackson. In these discussions, Breezy has offered words of respect to Jackson while also embracing the accomplishments he’s made throughout his career. Do you think Chris Brown deserves more respect from America? Should he be considered for the Super Bowl halftime show?
