The "Don't Wake Me Up" singer was before a judge in Los Angeles to check in on his progress with his probation (for beating Rihanna in 2009) when his attorney Mark Geragos was asked a question regarding his client's upcoming tour schedule — and Brown piped up. "Hello," he said, raising his hand. "Don't talk!" shot back Geragos. "I don't dance, you don't talk." Luckily, the hot-tempered Brown took the jab well and laughed.
Brown, 23, will be doing plenty of talking in his November 3 MTV documentary, "This Is How I Made It." In it, he reveals what it was like trying to win back the public after pleading guilty to beating his then-girlfriend, with whom he has since rekindled the flame. "It's one of my most humbling experiences," Brown shares. "I can't hate people for making judgment on me or making a decision of liking me or not liking me. All I can do is try to be better as a person, and I'm good with knowing everything isn't always going to be perfect."
Actually, it's pretty far from perfect. Not only has he been playing Rihanna and his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran against each other as he very publicly flip flops between the two, but Brown ignited even more ire when he dressed as a terrorist for Halloween. Although the singer was blasted by both fans and the media for the offensive costume choice, his mother came to her son's defense.
"Halloween is for fun, nothing more than just fun," tweeted Joyce Hawkins, who in 2007 reportedly got into such a loud fight with her son at a Miami hotel that police were called and Brown was ultimately ordered to leave after he destroyed the room. "Get a life please. So does this mean when we dress our kids as Satan we glorifying him or (is) it just out of fun???? ... Keep smiling angel."
