Chris Brown On Promoting Album: Why He’s Scared To Do Interviews For ‘X’
We don’t take Chris for a shy guy — not one bit. However, friends close to the singer say he’s skeptical about doing interviews to promote X — particularly on television — because he’s afraid that reporters will ask questions that have absolutely nothing to do with his album.
“He’s well aware that no matter who interviews him, they’re going to ask him about jail and the club shooting — all the sh** that has nothing to do with his album or why he’s even being interviewed in the first place,” a source close to the singer reveals EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “He doesn’t want to talk about sh** that really doesn’t mean anything, and that will cause him to feel pain.”
HollywoodLife.com reached out to Chris’ rep, who tells us exclusively, “That’s actually not true at all. We haven’t given those boundaries to journalists.”
Chris Brown Is Working Hard On ‘X‘ Tour
We’re told that despite his concerns about promoting his album, Chris is in the best of spirits these days and is working around the clock preparing for his tour, which will follow the release of his album.
“He’s always dancing and practicing new choreography, especially now that he’s about to do a few shows and kick off his album tour,” the source continues. “These past few weeks have been happy for him, really, they have been. He’s in a good place and not really trying to put himself into harm’s way.”
We’re so glad Chris is working so hard on his comeback. So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Does Chris have good reason to be nervous about doing press interviews? Let us know!
