Chris Brown Earns Six BET Award Nominations, Topping Rihanna, Drake & Kanye!

Wed, May 18, 2011 3:11pm EDT by 3 Comments

Chris Brown‘s career comeback reached a new high on Tuesday when the singer was nominated for six BET awards!

Chris Brown has worked endlessly to rebuild his reputation after pleading guilty to felony assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and HollywoodLife.com thinks it’s about time the public shifts the focus back to his music! The singer is already getting accolades for his hard work at making a comeback — he even scored six BET award nominations for his new album! Chris’s “Look at Me Now” will  be pitted up against Rihanna’s work with Drake on “What’s My Name” for Best Collaboration!

Chris’ F.A.M.E. album earned #1 earlier this year, but the singer hit a set-back after losing his cool on Good Morning America in March when the interviewer tried to steer the conversation back to his assault charges. We hope the six BET award nominations are evidence of a new era for Chris Brown and his music, especially since he is now collaborating with stars like Justin Bieber and Joe Jonas.

I agree with this article that it’s time to MOVE on and focus on his music, but look at your choice for a picture. Really? You don’t have shots of Chris alone?

Congrats to him because it is WELL deserved. He has worked really hard and is garnering #1’s all over and having successful tours. It’s time to let him do what he was born to do because he is super talented. These award shows need to stop overlooking him and allow him to shine on stage where he’s his best. I will be tuning in to see him perform!!
