Chris Brown’s Manager Muzzles Singer For 2012

After a phenomenal year for singer Chris Brown, including Billboard 200 topping album F.A.M.E. and a successful tour under the same moniker, the artist’s management team, headed by the shrewd Tina Davis, has declared that Rihanna’s former boxing partner will be doing zero interviews in 2012.

Zippo. Not a one.

According to Davis, the management-imposed radio silence is for Brown’s own good, saying that their focus is, “not have him do interviews but to concentrate on performing and recording”. She didn’t mention it having anything to do with his May appearance on Good Morning America, when he threw a chair through a window after a question about his ex, Rihanna. Brown, then in the midst of promoting the successful F.A.M.E., caught a bunch of bad press for the stunt, and with his new album Fortune coming soon, Davis is taking a pragmatic’s approach by putting Brown in detention.

“We’re not trying to be rude, selfish or disrespectful to anyone in any way,” she said. “If people are going to judge anything, judge him for his talent. He signed up to sing and entertain. Not to talk about his personal life.”

Other tantrum-prone stars have done the same. Kanye West put on a self-imposed press lockout after several of his own controversies, though he does use Twitter to otherwise vent his frustrations. Brown may be poised to do the same, though he hasn’t tweeted since New Year’s Eve, when he said:

“I LOVE Team Breezy unconditionally! Goodbye 2011. Let 2012 bring as much peace positivity and happiness as possible!”

Now, it’s only been a few days, but maybe Davis has him on a social media allowance and he just throws it away on Googling himself or playing Farmville. Regardless, we won’t be hearing anything but music from Brown in the coming year.

What do you think of the muzzle Chris Brown’s management team has put on him? Is it for the best?
