Remember that time back in 2009 when Chris Brown beat up Rihanna so badly that she had to be hospitalized and he was convicted for assault with the intent of doing great bodily injury, getting five years of probation? It’s hardly a minor incident that can be easily forgotten, and yet, it seems that Brown has completely wiped it out of his memory.
The singer recently took to Twitter to express his desire to hit something. No, don’t worry, this time it wasn’t Rihanna’s face – he wanted to hit the road with the Barbadian beauty and go on a world tour with her. Umm, what?
Sure, the 28-year-old didn’t mean it to be just the two ex-lovers on a trip around the globe. He thought it would be an excellent idea if Beyoncé and Bruno Mars joined them as well. Again: what?
“Just thinking… A CRAZY WORLD TOUR would BEYONCE, RIHANNA, BRUNO MARS, CHRIS BROWN. ‘2 for 2’. And if y’all decide to do it without me… give me 10%.” Brown tweeted on the 9th of February.
Well, at least he knows it’s crazy. In fact, taking into consideration that Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Bruno Mars are three of the highest-selling artists of today and that Brown himself hasn’t been relevant since 2009, his idea is not only crazy, it’s completely insane.

Chris Brown’s fans collectively raised an eyebrow at the R&B singer’s audacity. Some were quick to point out that it would be ridiculous to expect Rihanna to go on a tour with someone who physically assaulted her, and others didn’t fail to bring him down a peg from whatever cloud he seems to be living on, assuring him he was nowhere near the level of the other three celebs.
“It’s unhealthy,” wrote @bceeteedubz, and @rihweready pointed out, “You’re not on their level.”
Besides the fact that Brown would have little to contribute to a tour that features the likes of Riri, Queen B, and Bruno Mars, they are all extremely busy anyway, unlike Brown who last went on tour with Trey Songz and Tyga three years ago.

Also, one country that certainly won’t be featured on a potential Chris Brown tour is the United Kingdom, as he was denied a visa on grounds of him “being guilty of a serious criminal offense,” as a result of his assault on Rihanna.
And one person who won’t be present at a potential Chris Brown tour is his ex-girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. The couple split after Brown had a child with another woman. Tran claimed that the singer had threatened to kill her and was granted a 5-year restraining order against him.
