Chris Brown Withdraws From Kids' Choice Awards

3/11/2009 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris BrownChris Brown is officially letting Nickelodeon off the hook, and taking himself off the list of nominees at the upcoming Kids' Choice Awards.

In a statement, his rep says:

"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."


A rep for Nickelodeon tells us: "We are confirming that Chris Brown has decided to withdraw his nominations from the Kids' Choice Awards. We agree with and respect his decision, and are looking forward to presenting a great event for our audience."

Rihanna has been victimed on so many level. Has she been used from day one? Is it possible that they were pushed together as a "couple" by the people who have invested in Chris Brown Inc. all because they needed to distract Chris from the unhealthy relationship that he was having with the 40 year old? Just asking. With this "faux reconciliation" they continue to use Rihanna in an effort to $alvage the $inking $hip. Go easy on her she's barely an adult at 21.

Smart spin from his PR people, but still a spin. As for Nicelodeon, I will still boycott their programing in all mediums. They are douchers for keeping him in the running. CAN YOU SAY SHOOT YOURSELF IN THE FOOT STUPIDS.

That shows some responsibility on his part to stand up and realise that he is not in a place right now to be winning an award. Im sure all those little kids would have voted for him anyway. Wall to Wall and Forever are two awesome songs... But at this time he really shouldnt be trying to win any awards. And WHEN he is READY HE will address all of these issues and explain everything. Even if some of you on here want to permonantly villify him... He isn't the DEVIL himself. He is a young man in a very volitile relationship that was most likely being tested by his PERVERT of a manager. The sad part is these kids who don't understand and just want to see Chris do another awesome perfromance , is that it would be very low class of him to do it now. There are alot of stars in H-Wood that are guilty of the same offence and other crimes and what gets me is that every one wants to make the example for all of those people be Chris. I don't feel he is ALL evil as there are NO OTHER girls crawling out of the wood work to say .. YA' He DID IT TO ME TOO... So I feel this is an unfortunate isolated incident that got way out of controll and was definately perpertraited by the text that the NASTY manager of his sent... THAT OLD DIRT BAG knew FULL WELL what she was doing, She was trying to break up Chria and Rihanna... and thought IF she got rid of Ri-Ri then Chris would be all hers... EVEDENTLY YOU OLD DECREPID SKINBAG HE JUST AINT THAT IN TO YOU!! Evedence of that ... HE BEGGED FOR RIHANNA TO COME BACK TO HIM! So go crawl off in some hole with the rest of your kind ( PEDOPHILES ) and DIE!!!

Leave the 2 lovebirds alone. If they want to hurt each other, so be it. Fathers and mothers should be role models, period. I'm just saying, for what it's worth. Peace.

I didn't know Nickelodeon had a 'Strongest Pimp Hand' category. He was definitely a strong contender.

Dont judge Chris yet, stop and think. Its possible Rihanna may have caused a few of these injuries to herself. She could of been so mad at chris she started hurting herself and when chris tried to stop her things may have gotten out of hand. She obviosly knew that people would take her side and CHris wont cop to this cause she is so wicked. She couldnt control Chris so she chose to get him back by hurting his career!!

Brown comes from a violent past, a past that will haunt him for life. The type of past that he may never be able to change from. I surely hope RiRi is not stupid enough to stay hooked to this violent kid. He needs some serious help!

PLEASE    

The only thing he has done right and he was probbly made to do it and not his wishes. HA HA LMAO. Ri Ri's turn now only because we have lost respect for her as a role model for teens by taking his woman beating a$$ back.

I agree that this is probably the smartest thing he's done since the whole situation unfolded. While it's true that no one knows what really happened, it's best that he stays low key for now until the legal system runs it's course. Violence in any way, shape, or form is not something that should be taken lightly. Yes, parents should be their kid's #1 role models in life, but when you're in the public eye, you do have a certain responsibility in what you put forth. That's why celebs make all the $, afterall....because of their fans. So they SHOULD be held accountable for their behaviour. That's the price you pay for being famous.

Not sure about all of this    

Ok so I know that what he did was wrong, but this is messed up. All of you all talking crap can sit there and say that you have never done anything bad, EVER in your life. Yes, he needs to deal with it in court and wherever else the judge feels is right but to screw with someone making a living is just plain wrong. So to everyone who has ever had any type of legal problem, dui, assault (man or woman), whatever, then you should also lose your means of income. I think everyone is taking this waaaaay to far just because they are celebrities.
