(Newser) – Chris Brown has a new album coming out later this month, and he says that might be it for him in the music biz, reports the Huffington Post. "Don't worry mainstream America," he tweeted. "After this X album, it'll probably my last album." (Note the deft use of the "probably" qualifier while getting in a mention of the title.) Brown also tweeted to say he's "tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18," referring to the Rihanna assault. In other Brown news, he turned himself in on hit-and-run charges and was released on his own recognizance, reports TMZ.

The real question is, when will he quit seeking attention?

Too bad he didn't stop with the one "mistake" he made in beating up his girlfriend. He has shown himself to be a total ass in several public meltdowns. Now, he is hoping he will get a little "Oh, puleeeeeeze don't go!" with his wimpy threat to quit the music business. So, go home, Mr. Brown, and break all your crayons. There are thousands with more talent waiting in line behind you.
