Chris Brown is allegedly retiring from music at the tender age of 24.
That is, if his Twitter account is to be believed.
The "Fine China" singer, whose career has been predominantly put in context of his tumultuous relationship with singer Rihanna, spent about 45 minutes in jail Monday as a result of a sentencing that stems from a May hit-and-run incident, according to TMZ.
Following the fender-bender, Brown promptly took to Twitter to proclaim his innocence after allegedly rear-ending a Mercedes with a woman behind the wheel.
Brown reportedly went to jail a day early, according to the site, and was booked and released on his own recognizance. He is free until his Aug. 19 probation hearing in which he could face up to four years in jail if found in violation, MTV News reported.
Perhaps spending some time in the slammer, albeit brief, is what changed his outlook on life?
Shortly after being released, the Grammy-winning singer was spotted at AV Nightclub in Hollywood with his entourage at a VIP table, the nightclub's rep said. The following day, Brown took to Twitter to assure "America" that he was done being famous ... or infamous.
"Don't worry mainstream America. After this X album, it'll probably be my last album," Brown tweeted Tuesday.
"Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent," he added. "I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it!"
