On the heels of his forthcoming album F.A.M.E., R&B crooner Chris Brown has slammed reports that he leaked a nude photo to gain publicity, insisting he was disappointed about the private visual being published to the world.
Brown, who took the naked photo recently due to his newly-bleached blond hair, says he took the image to send to a girl – but is adamant he had no part in the snap being made public.
“Let me be honest with you. I didn’t want to put no pictures out; that’s not my intention,â Brown tells MTV News. âA lot of people were saying, ‘Yo, he leaked the pictures, he was trying to get promotion’.â
Brown adds, “For me, I was always a singer, so unless I’m planning on trying to do porn, I don’t think I’d want to just leak my wang out to the world before my album comes out. It was disappointing to me that it was out, because I was like, ‘Man, now it’s gonna (look like) a gimmick behind it’ and I don’t want a gimmick behind anything that I’m doing.”
