Chris Brown’s next album may be his last, the troubled singer said Tuesday on Twitter.
Brown tweeted that he’s “tired of being famous for a mistake when I was 18,” referring to his pre-Grammy Award show assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna, and later tweeted: “Don’t worry mainstream America. After this X album, it’ll probably be my last album.”

Brown turned himself in to authorities on Monday in connection with a May 21 Los Angeles hit-and-run case in which he is accused of running into a woman’s car
and refusing to give his driver’s license number before driving off.
A judge had earlier noted that because Brown wasn’t arrested, he had to turn himself in and provide proof that he was booked no later than Aug. 6. The singer spent less than an hour being booked before being released.
Because of the accident, however, a judge revoked the singer’s felony probation from his 2009 assault of Rhianna and set a hearing on that matter for Aug. 18, according to E! Online
. A hearing for the hit-and-run case was set for Aug. 15.
Brown’s sixth studio album, "X" is scheduled for release on Aug. 20.
His message on Tuesday was met with swarms of responses on social networking sites.
“CHRIS BROWN IS RETIRING FROM MUSIC. Thank god. Maybe now women will stop idolizing an abuser,” tweeted @qdobateen.
“I feel sorry for Chris Brown. Its his life why do people get so involved,” tweeted @grandesjustins.
“I doubt Chris Brown will quit music... maybe a hiatus like everyone else, but not quit,” tweeted @Prada_Gee_.
The Huffington Post noted that several other stars
said in the past that they would be retiring, only to continue performing. Jay-Z, for example, returned in 2006 after taking three years off, saying it was “the worst retirement in history.”
