Chris Brown -- How Quickly The Famous Forget

5/27/2009 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaq invited him to play basketball in his private gym, Usher took him to an NBA playoff game, Bow Wow even helped him shoot a YouTube video -- seems like Chris Brown is finally out of celebrity exile.

Chris Brown

At first it was hard to find a celebrity who would take a stand on the incident at all, but now -- just three months after he allegedly beat the crap out of Rihanna -- he's back in the "in-crowd," like the whole thing never happened. He's even dropping an album.

We don't expect Chris is gonna have a sit-down dinner with Jay-Z any time soon... but at this point, would you really be surprised?

Anyone who supports Chris Brown is an idiot, especially if you are a woman. No real man hits a woman!

Now what now?    

I don't know if I am prepared to hate him for life. He's a young boy who made a mistake and the public beat the hell out of him for it. I don't think he will be laying hands one any women in the future. Rihanna has moved on and after three months I think it's ok for him to come out of exile as well.

Seems unfair. You people seem to have forgiven Elvis Pressley, Humphrey Bogart and Christian Slater. Its ok to beat your wife but you cant forgive a 19 yr old for hiting his girlfriend who it is reported was hiting him? Typical

I am not a fan of anyone. fan = fanatic, means to go crazy over and do anything just to touch. But come on people. Let it go. A lot of people talking are huge hypocrits. You think the boy didn't and isn't paying for what he did. I don't watn to put an age on it, but he is young. He has to learn from his mistakes and grow. Some of you act as though he was 40 years old. Some of you have made bigger mistakes...ahem, drugs, driving drunk, being racist behind closed doors, etc, etc....He should have had more strength definitely. But he was provoked and then struck back. He isn't a big guy people, just tall (for those of you who said he was so much bigger than Ri Ri. He was wrong, we all know that. But let's not sit here and keep going back and forth about Chris Brown. It is good he knows he was wrong and he is moving forward. What did you think he was going to do, just sit back in a corner for the rest of his life. All of this is publicity for him. No publicity is bad. The people who claim they don't like him and want to see him fail will listen to his songs just to see if he is any good anymore, the people who likehim but feel he was so worn gwill secretly listen to him and the people who love him will say F-YOU and buy up more just to help him out.

PUT THAT LITTLE BASTARD IN JAIL FOR GOD'S SAKE. HE ATTEMPTED TO MURDER THAT POOR RHIANNA. HE BELONGS IN PRISON...NOT IN BASKETBALL CLASS WITH STUPID SHAK AND HIS KIDS. DON'T DOWNSIZE HIS TREATMENT OF HIS FORMER GIRLFRIEND. HE TRIED TO KILL HER.

@ 15 Regardless if she hit him first, After her beat her ass he took off and ran like a little B, So when she hit him, he could have ran instead of hitting her back. We can not allow it to be okay for a man to beat a woman, His strength is to strong in most cases , It's not an even match. I know women can be bullies, but the man needs to leave that relationship the first time that woman puts her hands on him. What Chris did to her was no excuse,

Looks like mostly everyone wants Chris Brown to slime away.Well,how ridiculous not to believe in change. Yes,even a woman beater can see the light, don't get me wrong...there are many who never will! Chris Brown is still a kid. he deserves another shot at whatever he chooses to do,as we all should. not one of us is perfect. we all make mistakes,some harsher than others. I know what I would try to do if he layed a hand on one of my girls. Yet, being a victim of domestic violence in my late teens and early adulthood,I still believe in the power of forgiveness. By the way, all you who want to hang this kid...GOOD LUCK when your time to be judged comes! You all are lucky you don't have TMZ on your tails!!!!!!!

What a surprise. Doesn't black music tell us that women are hoes? Not a surprise that the men think beating them is ok. And alot of their women think it's ok too. New album? He can stick that up his punk a$$.That little pr*ck will never see a nickel out of us.
