Promoter: Chris Brown cancels Guyana show

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) -- Organizers say American R&B star Chris Brown has canceled a stadium concert in Guyana after local protests over his 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown was billed to headline a Dec. 26 show. But he drew the ire of women's rights groups and opposition lawmakers who said Brown would not be welcome in Guyana three years after his assault of Barbadian superstar Rihanna.

Concert promoter Hits & Jams Entertainment said Thursday that Brown backed out, citing discomfort with the protests.

In 2009, Brown hit, choked and bit Rihanna during an argument in Los Angeles. He later pleaded guilty to assault.

Since then, Brown has worked to repair his image, undergoing violence counseling and putting out a new album. He has a duet with Rihanna on her recently released record.

Whomever says he has no talent. Look at last years 2011 MTV awards . That is entertainment at it's best! Stop judging him on his personal life. Rhianna has forgave him and moved on why can't our society of violence and sexuality move past this.

 

Whomever says they do not like his music . Well it is R&B or POP turn the station , freedom is great isnt  it. But ignorance is Bliss. Move on Move on.

Let it go people!!!  He committed a crime and he paid for it.  Rihanna just did a duet with the guy on her album.  I don't see her advocating bans and boycotts.  She got passed it, WHY CAN'T YOU

"Since then, Brown has worked to repair his image, undergoing violence counseling and putting out a new album."

 

Since when is "putting out a new album" consistent with violence counseling?
