Chris Brown Withdraws From Kids' Choice Awards

Chris Brown is withdrawing his name from consideration for the 2009 Kids’ Choice Awards.

A spokesman for the 19-year-old entertainer said, “Chris very much appreciates the support of his fans and the honor they have paid him in the way of nominations for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song. Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding the incident last month has shifted the focus from the music to whether he should be allowed to be among those nominated. While Chris would like to speak to his fans directly about this and other issues, pending legal proceedings preclude his doing so at this time. Once the matter before him has been resolved, he intends to do so.”

Oprah Winfrey recently weight in on the Rihanna and Chris Brown‘s domestic drama, saying, “Chris Brown and Rihanna, if I was your friend, I would call you up and I would say, ‘Give it some time, get yourself some counseling, take care of yourself.’ Heal yourself first… And also, love doesn’t hurt. I’ve been saying this to women for years: ‘If a man hits you once, he will hit you again.’ “

Good god, it’s only a Kids’ Choice Award, it’s not an Oscar. What a loser.

# 3

this case is really sad. he will be punished for the rest of his life for a mistake he made at 19. he doesn’t deserve hard jail time with murderers, rapists, gang members and dealers.
oprah on her horse should shut her mouth cuz she has made some BIG mistakes too and she was allowed to get through it.

LOL

UG everyone on the halle berry thread is pissing me off

# 7

It’s annoying. We are talking about kids.

# 8

Well, he has the decency to step down…good. Y’know, #3, yes, he made a mistake, and he is a young adult and is responsible for his actions…people aren’t raised or born to be abusive…and for what he’s done is not excuse to feel it’s alright to be on a Kids show in which many of the kids shows are looking to expose positive role models who are young and can represent one of the many choices kids can aspire to in life. It’s a diplomatic thing Chris has done to withdraw, and I’m very happy about that. There’s a moral to this lesson and this is setting a better example than to allow him to represent at a kids show knowing he was abusive towards a fellow artist…how would it be explained to the masses of young children if he still presented on the show? Now explain that to your kids.

I agree, the media should give it a rest, everyone is weighing in like crazy. Hopefully Chris has repented and learned from his mistakes.
He is young I really hope people can get past it in the future. I still love his music and hope his career recovers from this. Wish the best to Rihanna.

it’s about fu***** time he does smthg right. Good PR decision.

Chris Brown, I still Love @ 03/11/2009 at 3:15 pm

It’s no big deal for Chris, it’s only a kiddy piece of plastic, his got some already, what’s the big deal, I reckon he would of won it anyway, the competition was rather weak, AT LEAST HE WITHDRAWN AND NICK NEVER GAVE HIM THE BOOT, lol

It’s no Oscar or Grammy, who cares

Lillianne @ 03/11/2009 at 3:19 pm

Finally some sanity in this situation.

babybabybaby @ 03/11/2009 at 3:35 pm

I think that Nickelodeon made him “withdraw” because they were experiencing a huge backlash over this. They probably gave him a choice to bow out gracefully or they would have removed him.

QUIT calling what Chris did a “MISTAKE” He knew at the time what he was doing. DV is a disease! And yes, it’s good that he is dropping out. Right now he is not such a good role model for kids or anyone else for that matter.And of course ppl are not going to just let this drop. It’s a very serious issue and like it or not, DV is EVERYONE’S business. If it weren’t then society would even have a harder time getting both the victim AND the abuser help. Chris needs help. Not just anger management. He needs a good therapist and some serious tough love. He needs to be made to understand that what he is doing has many consiquences. He needs to know that it effects more then just his victim. That it can cause problems for his career, personal life, and yes, even his freedom. Weather he is cute or not and weather his music is good or not, those things don’t matter. As for Rihanna, she too needs therapy cuz she is not doing herself or Chris any favors by trying to back pedal now and then forgiving him BEFORE he has gotten the help he needs. By doing this, she left the door wide open for her next attack. This is not the first time he has done this and without help, it won’t be the last!

luvmebabe @ 03/11/2009 at 4:17 pm

i would throw crap at him if he does shows up at the award!

FED UP WITH RIHANNA THE BITCH @ 03/11/2009 at 4:28 pm

[P.S IT IS CAR ABUSE BECAUSE IT HAPPENED IN THE CAR NOT
DOMESTIC ABUSE THAT HAPPENS AT HOME MORE THAN ONCE.

poo @ 03/11/2009 at 2:33 pm

A mistake? There are people in jail for exactly what he did to Rhianna – gang members, spousal abuse cases, robberies gone bad and more.
And he doesn’t deserve jail time?
You must be either an abuser or an abused person or you would not take this stand that it was a mistake. It was a flat out beating–and that should be punished.

Whew. I am so glad that Chris Brown is not up for a “Kid’s Choice” award. That would just be in poor taste. Chris, get back to counselling and deal with this.

What “Kid’s Choice” nominee would make his girlfriend miss her own performance at the Grammy’s?

“inciden last month”? did he spill water on the dinner table? parked where he was not supposed to? what he did is a crime, it involves violence. Call it what it is, man up.

Does Chris Brown’s people really think that kids vote on these things based purely on music?? Oh, so since his music is fine –but unfortunately, his image is tainted by what he did to Rihanna — he should have been allowed to keep his name in? Doesn’t make any sense.

–He really needs serious counseling. He is quickly losing fans…

For pete’s sakes this is NOT going to affect the rest of life. This stuff is fresh, you can’t expect it to go away overnight. Knowing how fickle most fans are, they’ll soon be giving him love and dismissing the beating as a youth indiscretion.

Btw making mistakes that hurt yourself is totally different than giving a woman a beat down. I’d had thought some of you would have realized that. People are always willing to see someone over-come personal struggles. Women-beaters shouldn’t get that type of consideration.

silentsophi @ 03/11/2009 at 7:10 pm

Well oprah has condembed the relationship that must mean it is over!

DAMN IT!!!!
i was hoping that he would win =[
ughh what a shame, i hope he beats riri again im bored of him and her already

who ever said i was an abuser is an idiot. josh brolin, robert blake, amy winehouse, pete dogerty … all of these people have committed serious illegal crimes and have never served a day in jail. they are allowed to be repeated f*ck ups and they still have alot of money and life. NO ONE ON THIS BOARD KNOWS THE FULL STORY BUT YOU ARE READY TO CONVICT THIS KID. LET THE JUDGE DECIDE. What if Rihanna hit him first? than what? you going to take everything back and start attacking her?
too many people on this board are making this story about THEM. In america you’re supposed to get the facts FIRST and then PASS JUDGEMENT.

i saw that chris brown is not going to the kids choice award this year but young kids still wants him to be nominated. if kids juste look at all the talents he have why are you here saying bullshit about him, he made a mistake no matter how wrong that is, i mean i cannot find exuses to him, no man can beat a woman, i’m happy too see that his (true) fans where here for him ♥ plus files prove that the two of them were fighting he didn’t beat her like crasy, it was a fight like in every couple thats why they’re back together and i’m so happy for him, chris brown is my favourite singer and will always be, great singer, dancer and mistake or not chris is just the cuttest. (innocent until proven guilty) so . . can you leave him the **** alone ? (x).
Lovasvelt **** you by the way =].

Aussie Girl @ 03/11/2009 at 8:23 pm

I really don’t think that Chris Brown withdrew, the reps from the KIDS choice, would of been speaking to his reps etc etc and it was prob decided that a person who is waiting DV charges should not show his face at a KIDS award show!! Nickoledean let him withdraw gracefully, instead of booting him!!!! And if Ri did hit him first so what, he his bigger, stronger and should of left or something rather than do what he did!!! Also so disappionted at Ri!!!

Aussie Girl @ 03/11/2009 at 8:27 pm

Hey JJ, Was that a cheeky slip, where one of your writers wrote that “Oprah recently weight in on the issue of Brown and Rihanna”!!!

msblknasty1 @ 03/11/2009 at 10:11 pm

hes a straught up p…y and he will beat dat ass again…the morgue is waiting

I HOPE CHRIS BROWN REALLY REGRETS HIS ACTIONS AND MAKES SURE THIS NEVER EVER HAPPENS AGAIN WITH ANY WOMEN, BECAUSE THIS ONE INCIDENT HAS DESTROYED HIS LIFE AND CAREER FOR EVER!

Diamond Geezer @ 03/11/2009 at 10:49 pm

People who complain about domestic violence need a smack in the mouth

man i really wish he didnt do that.

like i mean i think he should have stayed because it shouldnt matter what he did…it should matter about his MUSIC!

poo @ 03/11/2009 at 2:33 pm this case is really sad. he will be punished for the rest of his life for a mistake he made at 19. he doesn’t deserve hard jail time with murderers, rapists, gang members and dealers.
oprah on her horse should shut her mouth cuz she has made some BIG mistakes too and she was allowed to get through it.
++++++++
I 100% agree with you. The kid made a mistake for crying out loud, he is young enough to learn from it and overcome it! Why is everyone jumping on the stone him bandwagon?? Give him a d a m n chance to redeem himself …he is only 19!!!!! Instead of ostracizing him people should allow him to prove himself and maybe he can actually help others.

some of u people are really starting to annoy me.

you guys are acting like you know everything that happened in that car.
honestly i am on his and rihanna’s side.
i mean i feel like they are both at fault about what happened.

and i just think some of you people are really really annoying,

i mean you guys are acting like oh well he probably doesnt reret anythin he did.
you dont think he does?

and also im sad that he wont be there.

and Oprah really needs to shut the F**K UP!

so f*****s hate on me NOW!

Glad he’s off the list and hopefully she’ll be off as well!!

I am honelty shocked to see some of your comments! There is a HUGE difference between doing drugs or something like Phelps, and between assaulting your partner to the extent that they need medical help. Not all mistakes are the same!! I put that as “partner” because they both assaulted each other, it just happens that men are physically stronger so Rihanna was hurt more. I don’t care how the fight started, I only care about the result which proves that they are both immature to be in a relationship that normally has ups and downs. They should be both out of the contest as they are not role models to children and if you say it doesn’t matter, then you are one of the following:

1. An immature teenager
2. An abuser
3. Anabused women who keeps going back for more

If we’re going to accept this behavior in society, then we should stop telling children that abuse is bad because this defeats the whole message!

iceprincess @ 03/12/2009 at 7:38 am

Um, hello #20 – domestic abuse is domestic abuse whether it happens in a car, at home, in public, etc. Know your law before you make such an idiotic comment. Also, yeah, this is not a grammy, but kids really look up to alot of these people – which is why it’s called “THE KIDS CHOICE AWARDS”. Yes, he is innocent until proven guilty, but it is never okay to hit another person in the way Brown did (which he has already admitted to), and that is what our kids need to be taught. Brown did the right thing by removing himself – because he also knows how much of an influence he is on the kids today and he wants to make a postive one rather than a negative one.

i wish everyone will leave this young man a long he is not the first to hit is girlfriend and not going to be the last. is it because he is black.three month ago a actor hit his mother and sister and they talked about it two to three days.and that was it there a lot’s of star fight and they talk about it awhile and that’s it. now opral-tyler and a whole lot of stars talking about it and the box’s ex-wife on the night show talking she and mike relationship was different her and mother was taking him has stuiped and taking his money. and and Ms talk show ladie. need to be quite.god gave you a blessing.so try to keep it and stop spreding his name like that he said he was sorry and she took him back and her family(some)are ok with it and steve the talk show guy said he was not going to talk about it but when people e-mail him he still said i t could’nt been my daughter.ok we know it’s not your child. so all of you need to mind you’re business and talk about how to help the people who need some work and food to feed there family. the tv show TMZ need to stay out of people life to talk about how ex pre Bush ****-up people life’s they killing each and they family think about those thing’s and if Mr Brown would come to town i will buy up his ticket and go and enjoy our self.we love the rere to and hope for the best for her my heart goes out to her. but get over it.if you keep people out of your world you are a cute girl and if chris is doing all of this to you there’s a lot of man want you ask J.Thank’s D ps i don’t care who don’t like it. if they was in is shoes thing will be different GOD is the only one judge you be very care how you’re JUDGE HIM AMAN

I hope he goes to jail, he’s not sorry for ****, he’s out riding on a jet ski!!! He’s sorry he got caught. This is what happens when a 16 year old gets a Lamborghini for their birthday.

i really think rihanna provoketed chrisbrown to hit on her he probably need to take angermanagement classes like me so dats wat i predict

Do we know what EVER happened during that day? Doubt not. We might not known until court or confession.

Best for him (and her) since both are in this stilled in this case. I sense both are at fault for different reasons now. But I wish this would end so we can get into more important things in life right now.
